‘Wreck It Ralph’ Trailer Brings Us Video Game Villains Anonymous

Generally, I don’t care too much about Disney movies. Okay, I did watch Tangled but that was just to confuse my Netflix account after watching over 20 hours of violent Japanese horror movies. Also is it weird that the autocorrect for Netflix is ‘skinficks’? Hysterical. Disney seems to have actually made something that looks pretty cool. First of all it has John C. Reilly and I love that guy. Secondly, at a Bad-Guy Anonymous meeting we see King Koopa, Zangief, M. Bison, Robotnik and one of the ghosts from Pac-Man. I don’t think it’s Pixar- but it is certainly an…

TL;DR Prototype 2… improves on combat and visuals tones down enemy tenacity and chaos of battle buries the original game’s challenge events as DLC makes you extremely powerful but nearly invincible (even on Insane difficulty) plays out in a much more linear fashion rearranged its city to be less interesting and dynamic, and feels more confined with less to do leaves some powers’ full potential unrealized has one Devastator convolutes the jumping, dashing, and movement systems owes a significant debt to Infamous for its secondary objectives has an annoying, disappointing, lackluster final battle has a super irritating finale to the…

Meanwhile, Back at the Lannister Ranch

I don’t know if I’m the only one, but it was wracking my brain as to the significance of the doll in Sansa’s hand when she ran up to her chambers during the Battle of Blackwater episode last week. After browsin’ through WinterisComin.net, I found that the wonderful folks there have provided a much needed answer… Apparently, it’s the same doll her father gave her back in season 1. Now that some amazing fuckin’ shit. Thank the seven hells for continuity! Brilliant!

There’s Bad… and then there’s BAD

Girl Duality asked for something I’ve seen that’s badly dubbed. My first thoughts went to Mystery Science Theater 3000, as I’ve been revisiting the whole show. I was going to bring up Gamera, or maybe Hamlet, but then it hit me. A movie from my past, something that was so awful, so badly dubbed that it wasn’t even funny, it’s nearly unwatchable. It’s one of my most regretted video store picks. It is, Dracula (Dirty Old Man) and what makes this movie special is that it isn’t foreign. The story goes that there was an original soundtrack to the film,…

GirlDuality: Assignment for this week “The most unfortunate (shitty) dubbing of any show/film/video game you’ve ever seen.” The first thing that comes to mind is “Believe it!” This isn’t really a dubbing thing as it is more of a lost in translation thing. &#%$ing english translating mother&#%$ers! OK so this really bothered me when I first encountered it several years ago. Really really bothered me. I guess its because… mostly… it doesn’t make sense. Today, I’ve gotten over it a little. Though I still think its just &#%$ing stupid. So several years ago I was really into the Japanese animated…

Japanese Weirdness

Okay, so this is NOT quite an entry in ‘Japanese weirdness’ But it’s related to a Japanese property, and it totally did weird me out. This is part to the surprisingly well made paper costumes secondly the fact that this dude looks like a guy that screwed me over at a wedding a few months ago. So maybe he neglected to tell me he had a girlfriend because HE was his own girlfriend- just wearing a Sailor Moon paper costume. I’m not usually this snarky on here, but my oldest guinea pig is on her way to the vet right…

The world of cosplay is a strange place. Only there ( and deviant art :;shudders::) will you find such a curious mixture of ideas. I’m a big Sailor Moon fan and I’ve also finished ever Silent Hill game. Except the one where you were locked in your apartment. These weird demon children lived in my closet and they would suck out all my energy and they probably took all my money. I could never tell though because next thing I know, my character would have a bitchin’ headache and die staring at his over-active ceiling fan. Then there was the…

I’m finding that Tumblr is an amazing thing. I just stumbled on to the ‘Eschergirls” which state their mission as ‘ a blog for pictures of female characters in impossible or ridiculous poses or with disturbing anatomy because the artists need to show teh sexy” The blog takes no mercy and includes Fathom, Darkchlyde and a wealth of anime and Power Girl into account. The also offer ‘re-drawings’ to more realistic poses. Give it a look here: http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/page/3

Merchandise of Awesomeness

A little while ago, in a house by a graveyard there was a short red-headed girl in combat boots. The re-headed girl said ” I really need a puppy to go on adventures with me”. So, the red-headed girl went and rescued a puppy. A puppy with curly ears, fluffy feet and a long fan-tail. The puppy and her grew close and were like shadows for one another. The girl kept her safe and warm and gave her plenty of toys and blankets. In return, the puppy defended her from scooters, squeaky hedgehogs and squirrels and reluctantly wore an Avengers…

How Charlie Ruined My Weekend

I have been thinking a lot recently about TV to movie adaptations. By a lot I mean exactly as long as it took to research Charlie’s Angels, and by recently I mean the last two weeks. It seems to have always been a┬áproblematic issue, which ranges from the painful birth control properties of the Flintstones movie, to the Star Trek franchise which continues to be pretty spectacular (I’m considering an article on why the new Star Trek reboot is better than anything ever in the history of ever). To demonstrate the difficulties that arise in an adaptation I am going…

The war of five kings is approaching. Granted I don’t expect to be able to actually watch it on HBO go until at least 11- due to too many people on the server, but by the old gods and the new- I can taste it. The dramatic budget-busting Battle of Blackwater airs this week on Game of Thrones with one more episode after that. Then, I continue to bitch until season 3 airs. Season 3, however fills me with such a sense of dread I can hardly stand it.

Diablo needs to shut down in 5 minutes for maintenance …and then every minute it ticks down….then every 10 seconds… then every second- so we were all like… GO GO GO! we need to kill the bad guys!

I was a very lucky lil’ girl growing up.

I was, however old enough to have been around when the man himself, Jim Henson passed away. I watched every show he ever put out and committed some to memory. I learned about life and friendship, death and laughter from his programs and the characters he created. Sesame Street taught me how to read…
