    Worst Mothers

    May 13, 2018 by AustinDR

    1. The Beldam: Obviously, this woman is the epitome of what can be considered a terrible mother. The Beldam is the main antagonist of the novella Coraline by Neil Gaiman and the film adaptation. The Beldam - or the Other Mother - spies on children through the use of a doll fashioned after her intended target, and makes the Other World pleasing to them until they eventually desire more and more. So she gives them the chance to stay forever with her if they were to sew buttons over their eyes. At that point, their lives are gradually eaten away by this demonic monster until she grows bored of them and discards them like used toilet paper. The novel only accentuates how repulsive the Beldam truly is by mentioning that she buried her own mother…

    So I had noticed that there seems to be a tidbit too many articles under the "Tragic" category. Though it's not really much of a surprise as tragedy can be subjective to anyone. At most, I do feel that the work itself needs to show that the villain in question is tragic, and how it reflects on them (i.e. a Freudian excuse). Take villains like Koba or Lots-O' Huggin' Bear. While both antagonists have tragic backstories (being experimented on by humans for the former; being replaced by their owner for the latter), the films make it abundantly clear that whatever happened to them in the past by no means justifies what they have done in the present such as Koba killing other apes. If he were only interested in killing humans, that would be und…

    1. Tamatoa: He just felt like wasted potential to me. He had some personal rivalry with Maui that I would've loved to see, and they also had similar motifs. Instead, he was just some obstacle for the heroes to face. With his villain song, I also felt that it didn't meld well with the rest of the more tropical feel of the music, rather it was some weird tribute to David Bowie.

    2. Most of the villains from RWBY. With RWBY I never saw the appeal of it namely because I was turned off from watching the show because of how the animation seemed stiff and inspired by those Vocaloid MMD videos. My main issue with most of the villains from the series is that they all seemed to be pretty weak. There's the main villain Salem who to me is just your generi…

    A preview of what I will be discussing for May 21st on the cleanup forum regarding Final Space. WIP.


    Final Space is a 2018 animated television series created by Olan Rogers. The series concerns the misadventures of a young man named Gary Goodspeed who was sentenced to five years in a prison ship after he had impersonated an Infinity Guard (a member of an intergalactic organization) in order to impress a young woman named Quinn Airgone. The prison ship Gary is sentenced to is dubbed the Galaxy One, which is managed by an artificial intelligence called HUE. While living out his sentence, Gary discovers a bulbous alien and names it Mooncake. Except this cute little blob is actually a planet destroyer. Along the way, Gary meets different people …

    Infinity War. There are many things to say about the film, but for the most part, I liked it. I liked several of the character interactions, some that were actually genuinely surprising. Thanos himself was also a great villain to add onto the current line up of MCU villains. There were some genuinely funny moments in the film, but the ending will leave a massive impact on you. To explain it, let's just say that when my Dad and I left the showing of the movie, practically no one exiting from the showing of the movie discussed it. It is genuinely an emotional roller coaster, with how the ending credits seem to paint the illusion to an obituary, or even a list of casualties. I knew what the end result was going to be because of the source mat…
