    It (2017)

    September 9, 2017 by AustinDR

    Well, finally got to see the movie. It was actually a pretty good adaptation of a Stephen King novel. However, for the first part of the movie, I didn't really care much for it. Some of the acting was hit or miss, the tone constantly whiplashed, and I ultimately didn't get that vibe of the Losers Club caring for each other. Sure, they hang out with each other, but other than that, no true bond. The second half of the film is pretty strong, especially when Bill comes to terms with his brother being dead and rising to the role of leader. Bill Skarsgard definitely kills it as Pennywise. His voice gives off the demeanor of a predator, his mannerisms are also unnerving. He walks and moves as if he's in danger of having a seizure every time he m…

    Zarm (Effort Post)

    September 1, 2017 by AustinDR

    So, this one is about one character that was brought up during the early days of the forum, but didn't receive much discussion. Without much of an introduction, it's Captain Planet and the Planeteers. You know the show; some teenagers are given some magical rings through which they can summon the eco-friendly Captain Planet, who aids them in their adventures of stopping the Eco-Villains, antagonists that are grossly your typical Card Carrying Villain. The show already has a CM in it, but I feel that this one villain wasn't really given much debate. Until now:


    Originally, Zarm was a spirit of the Earth much like Gaia. However, due to some unknown events, Zarm abandoned Earth in search of other worlds. As the closest thing the show has to a Bi…

    Honestly don't think anyone counts, but given how I have the discussion date for the Netflix film:

    1. Light Turner: For starters, he's the least evil take of the character. Besides getting pressured to kill a bully by Ryuk, Light tries to stay to his plan of killing criminals. When the opportunity of killing his father arises, Light cannot bring himself to kill him. Despite being targeted by the FBI, he also doesn't opt to killing them. He has a Freduian Excsue in the form of him losing his mother in a hit and run which fuels his crusade of doing away with crime. On an unrelated note, Nat Wolf's interpretation of the character isn't good. He comes off as an Emo kid who doesn't even do anything remotely that could be seen as "genius" at least u…

    Death Note 2017 (Review)

    August 26, 2017 by AustinDR

    So, I had seen the new 2017 take on Death Note that can be found on Netflix. My thoughts? Well....it's not bad. It's not good, but it isn't complete garbage either. I haven't read the manga or watched all of the anime series, so I can't really say how faithful it is to its source. As a movie on its own...it's alright. For one, this film takes place in Seattle, where Light's last name is changed to "Turner," and whatever. It starts off like how you'd expect; a young man discovers a notebook upon which anyone could die if their name was written into it. And Light decides to start a crusade against criminals, using the guise of "Kira" to keep his identity hidden.

    For the most part, the movie was decent. The concept of a Death Note was interest…

    So, I had a candidate who I was unsure of, but here goes nothing. The work in question is actually a manga series, known as Jinzou Shoujo, or Artificial Maiden in English. A rather short manga, it concerns a scientist/alchemist, named Hiruma Anjin, who discovers a human brain in an alleyway. Taking the brain, he places it into the body of 16 year old Nina, who had died fourteen years prior to the events of the manga. However, as it turns out, the brain belonged to a high school student, Misumi Yukata, and the rest of the manga concerns Misumi, now Nina, trying to retrieve his missing body. Anyway, here's the candidate:


    Kai was a 240 year old alchemist who ran a company that specialized in creating clones. Essentially, Kai offered a life insura…
