All in all, it was a powerful story but one that would have made a better impact had Disney not dilly dallied on greenlighting the movie and released it before the final two Avengers films. Natasha deserved better. And this movie simply twisted the knife deeper into our hearts.
All in all, Dune Part 1 felt more like a massive flex from director Villeneuve, showcasing his confidence that Part 2 will be greenlit by Warner Bros, just like he wanted. With an ending like that, who would sit still without seeing how it ends? It also seemed like the movie was intended to correct everything that director David Lynch did wrong in the controversial 1984 classic.
The second half of Tokyo Revengers Season 1 was all about loyalty and friendship. Baji to the Founding Members, Chifuyu to Baji, and on the flipside was pure treachery, and at its center was Kisaki. While episodes 1-13 was filled with multiple deaths, the continuation left no doubt that the Tokyo Manji gang is still faced with even more tragedy in its past and in its future. I have half a mind to read the manga now to answer all of my questions but I fear that it will destroy the suspense that I’ve built up for the anime.
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed any book or e-book but this web novel is a really great companion read to the webtoon that I am currently addicted to. It makes the story of Under the Oak Tree all the more richer when its told from a different perspective. Perhaps, this was what Stephenie Meyer was gunning for with Midnight Sun?
All in all, I loved the story of Under the Oak Tree, the art and the characters. I’m actually reading the novel on Riftan’s POV, which I discovered from the threads. I’m going to read the novel on Maxi’s perspective after I’m done. This is how good this series is. I just can’t get enough of this couple.
I was blown away by Demon Slayer: Mugen Train because of the beautiful and consistent animation all throughout. There was no bad panel, not even one. The use 3D in combination with 2D animation was seamlessly crafted. The fight scenes never missed a beat. The use of perfect background music to accompany each scene made me ugly cry 25 percent of the movie and kept me suspended in suspense the remainder of the time.
By its end, Takemichi was basically back to where the series started, and yet because of everything he discovered about Toman, it would be interesting how he could influence the future with a lengthened stay in the past. Will he be able to save everyone? Should I already get started on the manga or should I suffer in excitement until the second season is confirmed? All in all, a highly recommended series. I binged it in a day. It’s that good.
It was a brutal battle that took everything out of the students. Even the normally unflappable Todoroki had difficulty figuring out how to suppress their powerful enemy. No one came out of it unscathed but it was a giant leap when it came to teamwork. From the first and second time they were attacked by big time villains, Class 1-A now knew their strengths and easily teamed up to complement each other’s strengths.
All in all, I would still recommend for Netflix to pick up the series for a second season. We have so much more mythical creatures to explore. Plus, there was too much backstory to unpack in just six half hour episodes. If Trese finds it in her heart to muster even a bit of enthusiasm for anything, Netflix should give her a chance to continue her journey.
After watching Iron Man 13 years after its original cinematic release, I would say that Iron Man was, and still remains one of the best movies in the MCU. Its pretty hard to top this so Phase 4 better shape up to meet the bar.
