Scott Pilgrim Vs The World!
Yes folks, it’s been a long time coming for me since I first saw this movie last year and read the book, my mind boggling at how something that’s as bad as Twilight could appeal to so many people, including critics of Twilight! Well, after uch thought, I was hit by my patron muse, Washu-
-and wrote up my review and farewell to Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. It was not easy, and there are plenty of things left about this movie that are horrible and stupid, and have been pointed out by people smarter than me, but this truly was something I wanted to get off my chest.
So watch, enjoy, and leave a critical comment if you like. Just play nice, okay boys and girls?
Hello everyone, and welcome to episode 4 of Brain Food, where I review Huntress, the prequal to Ash written by Malinda Lo.
I hope that everyone likes the review and goes to read the book, as it’s a wonderful story with great characters that deserves to be read.
I also highly recommend going to her website and reading the section she has on the Asianness within Huntress, or its lack thereof. It’s a really interesting piece on authour and reader interpretation of work. In the end, I prefer to view the characters as Asian, much as I like making Shepard in the Mass Effect series a black woman.
Hello one and all, and welcome to another new post here, in where I give to you the first three episodes of Brain Food, a series I started a little while ago to review the debut novel of a friend of mine, Dennis Upkin’s Hollowstone.
The idea of this series to is discuss published books and comics which are outside the norm, and by the norm I mean more adventures of the mighty whitey straight guy who gets the girl and saves the world. There is an entire world out there of authours and artists who wish to bring forth entire fictional worlds that help us to escape reality while also giving us something new to consider. I am proud to bring these stories to light because they are good, and they are worth the time and money that should be invested in them.
So lets start this off, shall we?
Episode 1: Hollowstone
Episode 2: Aspire #1
Episode 3: Flesh Which is not Flesh
I hope that everyone enjoys these reviews and the stories that I review. I have more on the way, with a review of Miranda Lo’s Huntress, as well as Terry Moore’s Hero.
Hello everyone, and welcome to Jolt Studios, where today I will be openly discussing two subjects of great interest to DC fans, the Flash Point reboot as well as their lack of diversity and the steady white washing that has been occurring in the past couple of years as Silver Age fanboys write what they want, regardless of what the fans want.
First off, I have for you my rant on Flashpoint, posting last month, but still relevant to our interests:
And then I have my second comic rant on how DC has been following a disturbing trend of getting rod of their more prominent characters of colour and replacing them with more white people than you can shake a stick at.
Frankly, between this and all that Marvel has done in the past few years, I am starting to get sick of everything that the Big 2 do to superheroes. I know it’s forcing me to go elsewhere to read stories about good, decent people written by good, decent people.
Except for the ones done by Gail Simone. She’s super awesome.
