Rapid Reviews #2

The following are my opinion and do not reflect the opinion of any organization or person. May contain spoilers!

TEPPEN from GungHo Online Entertainment Inc: Various Capcom characters battle it out in this online card game. I really enjoy the cinematic cutscenes. Every graphic is amazing. The animations for the characters’ special power is also well done and gives the game that unique flair. I could tell that they really worked hard on it. I also enjoy that many of my favorite Capcom characters are together. But, it did take me awhile to understand how to play the game and navigate the menus and system. I still have no idea what the Zennys are for–I’m assuming its to buy cards (or is that the Souls).

awritersd1ary: A collection of well thought out and short poems. The poems pull at your heart and make you want to go “awww” after reading them. The backgrounds fit the poem well and are not distracting. I also had no trouble reading the text–it doesn’t blend into the background.

ratvault: A collection of comics featuring a rat detective, but don’t expect a great detective. The Ratective is kind of a goof. The artwork is high-level and amazing. The jokes are also very funny.

Pluto TV: An app or website that allows you to watch free TV. It has a nice collection of old and new shows and movies. I wish it allowed you to see further into the programming than three hours. If you sign up, you can save channels as favorites, but signing up is not required, which is nice. There are a few bugs still to work out, such as sometimes it’ll glitch and repeat a scene over and over until I close it. It works well for having something to watch during off-seasons and downtime. It is also great for having something on while your eating or taking a break.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Rapid Reviews #1

The following are my opinion and do not reflect the opinion of any organization or person. May contain spoilers!

The Intruder: Kind of slow moving, but the creepy factor made it very interesting. At one point, you start wondering if the husband was the real villain.

UglyDolls: A good kids movie. There was a lot of singing; if you’re not a fan of musicals or lots of singing, you probably wouldn’t like this movie. I did like the message that they were trying to teach.

MAD Magazine #8: Contains your usual amount of jokes and crude humor. I enjoyed the short stories/articles. I felt like they did a good job of making fun of politics without it being on every page. They would make fun of superheroes then move on to politics and then make fun of vacations. I felt like I didn’t know what I was going to get next. Except for the little subscription cards that kept falling out–those I expected.

Nickelodeon’s Super Brawl Universe (mobile game): Has some bugs to be taken care of, such as sometimes it won’t respond to a tap. I like how you are able to pay for most things through slime. I didn’t feel forced into purchases. The matchmaking system seemed fair. The fights felt a little challenging but not frustrating. I enjoyed how the 1-v-1 fights don’t require energy. Also, the energy refills pretty fast.

“Let’s Meet Sonic” (OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes crossover event): So many Sonic the Hedgehog references! The episode didn’t feel rushed and the animation was smooth. It didn’t feel like they were trying to cram in a bunch of jokes or plot points into a small amount of time. I enjoyed that Tails actually had a part to play and wasn’t just standing there while Sonic did everything. You get to see a lot of character development in a short period of time. It also ends with the “Sonic Sez/Says” segment from the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon, so wins all around.

Infinity Train Episodes 9-10 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

The event is over, but with the promise of “Infinity Train will return.” These last two episodes answered all of the important questions. I won’t go into them here because I don’t want to spoil it and I think you should watch it yourself. But, I will say the ending was amazing. I’ll also say that I’m glad it is revealed that the person vaporized by the light in the first episode wasn’t killed.

I do want to talk about the questions left unanswered. We find out who the Conductor is and why they are against Tulip while the train is for her. We also found out how the cars and cockroach things are created. We also get a hint at what the numbers mean. What isn’t answered is where the train came from and its purpose.

Lastly, we don’t know why the land the train travels through is barren and full of those creatures. I guess the shows hints at it a bit. Tulip is shown a picture of the train’s engine. She sees that it has cannons, which can be repurposed to make the cockroaches. The cannons can alter reality, such as changing Atticus into a cockroach or changing a computer into a corgi. So, it is possible the Conductor used the front cannons to shape the land it travels through.

But, what I mostly liked about the show is that the big questions were answered. It felt complete. I didn’t feel like, “Great, now I have to wait till the next season.” I was left feeling like the story was done, but at the same time excited for the next one.

I would highly recommend this show to those who like puzzles, mysteries, and fantasy. It comes with action, suspense, emotion, and humor. The animation is also great. The acting was well done. I continually felt like I was watching a high-budget movie. Also, it felt like the world was completely flushed out. 4.8/5

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Infinity Train Episodes 7-8 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

We’re getting close to the end now.

I didn’t like the “Chrome Car” episode as much as the others. It was your typical main character encounters their mirror self episode. I did like that the Infinity Train creators didn’t just have Mirror Tulip be evil. The mirror version was more like how Tulip wished she was. Mirror Tulip feels trapped and wants to explore the world. When Tulip says she can help, the mirror version says something like, “You’re trapped too. You hide out in your room all the time and never see the world.”

Episode 8, “Ball Pit Car,” had more to it however. It was nice to see Tulip having fun instead of being serious and logical. And just right when everything is happy, the wire monster arrives and the action kicks off. But, what I really liked about the episode is you finally learn who the wire creature is and you finally meet the Conductor. The Conductor does confirm that he/it is after Tulip for leaving her car and messing with his plans. You also get to see how the soul-sucking cockroaches from episode one are created.

In other words, a lot of questions get answered in this episode. But then more questions arise, like what is the Conductor’s plan? Also, it seems that the train wants Tulip to explore but the Conductor does not. It sounds like the Conductor is either malfunctioning or he’s gotten too big for his metal breeches and wants to “rule the train.” The Conductor seems to want the train to be more orderly and logical–kind of like how Tulip wanted it to be at first.

What do you think is the Conductor’s master plan? How is Tulip going to cope with the events of the “Ball Pit Car?” Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Until next wormhole…thanks for reading!

Infinity Train Episodes 5-6 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

Tulip and gang once again run into the scheming cat. This time she offers Tulip answers to the number on her hand. Instead, Tulip is trapped within her own corrupted memories. Slowly, Tulip realizes it was her corrupting them; she was replacing memories of her parents fighting with happy memories. This revelation allows Tulip to escape. Once they leave, the wire-monster-thing shows up asking where the three heroes are.

At first, I thought that the monster was interested in Tulip; but after watching the sixth episode, I started to wonder. In the sixth episode, One-One keeps saying that the Unfinished Car is all his fault and tries to fix it. Tulip tells him not to blame himself for things beyond his control, much like she blames herself for her parents’ divorce. After the trio leave, we see a round lock next to the door that looks like One-One.

It seems that One-One left the car for some reason and the car was left unfinished. Also once the three passed the car’s gate, One-One greeted Atticus and Tulip like he’d never seen them before. It seems that leaving the car erased his memory.

In the fifth episode, the monster-thing asks, “Where are they?” I thought it meant the three friends, but One-One is also two beings so they could be “they,” and One-One is not in the Unfinished Car like he is supposed to be. We also see that the wire creature has a boss–someone who responses in musical tones.

I’m thinking the wire creature is some kind of security/repair system. Tulip has left her car; that is why the creature tells her to “take her seat.” Tulip is breaking the rules by wondering around. This would also explain why Tulip seems to be the only one interested in leaving their car. The wire creature is trying to get Tulip back to where she belongs. It is also trying to get One-One back to the Unfinished Car.

Finally, throughout the series there has been an on-going joke about Tulip being the only one with opposable thumbs. Opposable thumbs are usually seen as a sign of intelligence (i.e. tool-making). The one breaking the rules is a human. She leaves and ponders and experiments while the others are content to “stay in their seats.”

Do you think the wire creature is more interested in One-One than Tulip? Why do they keep mentioning opposable thumbs? What does the train want with the passengers? Tell me your theories in the comments.

Until next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Infinity Train Episodes 3-4 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

The third episode started out a little confusing. In the previous episode, Tulip is scared by the number on her hand dropping; she believes it means she’ll die. In the third episode, she is actively trying to cause the number to change. It made me feel like there was a missing episode.

The number, however, does not change. Tulip rushes through each car telling everyone she has no time to stop. Finally, she enters the Corgi Car where she is forced to stop because a monster is blocking the exit. During her stay, she learns to slow down and be patient–the answers will eventually come. Once again, once she learns her lesson, the number changes. But, there is more to the episode.

The monster, at first, is a spider who’s shadow is distorted by a glowing orb. Soon they discover that a metal, robotic creature is taking the orbs from sections of the train car. It is shown that the sunny day scene of the car is just a hologram. Also everything in the car, from sunlight to the water, is controlled by the orbs. The “metal spider” seems to be repairing the train by taking out the orbs but doesn’t replace them. The creature is also seen to glitch. It seems obvious that the machine is broken or has a bug.

The creature then notices Tulip and screams, “Take your seat!” before retreating. Sounds like something a ticket taker, or a conductor, would say. Maybe the conductor is faulty and needs someone who likes to program–like Tulip–to fix it.

In the fourth episode, Tulip once again can’t force the “hand number” to change. She states that she has tried everything logical, but it doesn’t work. She is upset at how illogical the train seems to be. In the Crystal Car, she has to sing a song that matters to her before she can leave. It isn’t until she sings a song from her family road trips that she succeeds. The number then drops again.

It seems as if the train is teaching her to open her heart. It seems like she has walled off her feelings, because of her parents’ divorce, and built a barrier of science to block her emotions. I also found it interesting how the number drop seems to correlate to the “importance” or “success” of the lesson. When she yells at One-One, it goes down by one. When she sings the song, it drops by more.

I’m getting this sense that the train, and the world outside the train, is broken. Just like how Tulip probably feels about her family. It isn’t her love of science that frees her from the Crystal Car but her love of her family. The metal spider also seems to be broken. My theory is Tulip needs to fix it and heal herself from what is happening with her family.

I find it interesting that the creatures Tulip encounters seem to know they are on the train but have no interest in leaving it or their cars. None of the other “passengers” seem to have numbers on their hands or paws. Tulip seems to be the only human onboard. The only other passenger that seems to travel the cars is the cat, a con artist.

What are your theories? Is the metal spider the conductor? Why is Tulip the only one with a number? Are all the cars holograms/programs?

And what do you think of the show so far? Good, bad, meh?

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Infinity Train Episodes 1-2 (Spoilers and Theories)

Here’s the complete playlist: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

Infinity Train is a (as of now) mini-series airing on Cartoon Network from Aug. 5-9. For now, it is ten 11 minute episodes. Each night two episodes will air. The show is also available on the Cartoon Network app.

In the first two episodes, Tulip is on her way to coding camp. She is already working on a video game similar to Space Invaders. Unfortunately, her divorced parents are unable to take her at the last minute. She decides to make her own way there. Soon, she discovers a train. Upon entering, she is transported to a seemingly endless train where each car contains its own–and sometimes bizarre–universe. She needs to make her way to the Conductor in order to leave.

The first episode gives us a few theories to work with. Tulip meets a round robot that can divide itself called One-One. One side is depressive while the other is more upbeat. Both are pretty naive. One-One is looking for its “mother,” which it doesn’t know who she is or what she looks like. Since Tulip is a coder and interested in video games, it is possible that she is One-One’s “mother.” She could either create the robot as a video game character or as an actual robot.

The next big theory that I have comes from what happens after Tulip tries to escape the train. Outside the cars is a desolate wasteland. She soon runs into a cockroach-like creature that can age people/suck out their souls. It would seem like Tulip has been transported to the future, but I think the train cars are actual other worlds–either imaginary or real–with the train as some sort of hub or container. I am thinking that the train is more symbolic like the place is a dreamworld or the mind. The soul-sucking roaches might be things that cause us to give up on our dreams; they kill us on the inside.

More evidence to my dreamland theory shows up in the second episode. On Tulip’s hand is a glowing number. In the first episode it is 115, but it changes to 114 in the second. The thing is it doesn’t change during her “fails” through the other cars. She has trouble in the crossword, evil plant, and pinball worlds, but the number stays the same. It only changes after she yells at One-One for causing her trouble.

If One-One is her creation and she yells at it, and later tries to sell him/it in order for a way off the train, her dropping a “health point” could mean she’d been tempted to give up on her dreams. She states that all she wanted was to get off the train; she is willing to give up on going to camp (i.e. give up on her dreams) in order to escape.

When Tulip asks One-One what happens if the number reaches zero, One-One says she’ll be gone. He doesn’t say she’ll die–Tulip assumes she’ll die. There are other ways “to be gone,” such as giving up on your dreams or just simply getting kicked off the train. In the first episode, we do see someone getting vaporized by a strange light, but we don’t know if the person was killed or just transported away.

For now, my theory is that the Infinity Train is some kind of dreamland filled with imagination (possibly other worlds). People are brought there to come up with ideas, fight for their ideas, or learn some lesson–this part I haven’t completely figured out. It does seem the main point of Tulip’s story is her fight for her dreams. It is almost like she is deciding something–maybe does she continue running away or does she return to her family.

What’s your theory? Let me know in the comments.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.
