The Mandalorian and More |Rapid Reviews (Spoilers)

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

Horace Crenshaw, Jr.: Author of Blowing Sandstorm which, as the website describes, is a memoir of “a commander that was put in charge of an Army Reserve Petroleum Unit during the initial months of Operation Iraqi Freedom.” I haven’t read the book yet, but I was impressed with the website. It looked very professional. It was easy to read; there were few to no errors; and everything was easy to access. Within moments of arriving, I knew who Crenshaw was, what services he offered, and what the book was about. I would suggest fixing the book trailer video to add a thumbnail, if possible. As it is of writing this post, it looks like a broken link and makes me hesitant to click it.

The Mandalorian (Disney +): I was a bit leery and skeptical about the show. I’m not that big a fan of bounty hunter/anti-hero type of shows (though they are growing on me). I was a bit worried in the opening scenes when The Mandalorian didn’t speak. I was concerned about what type of show this would be. I was glad to see that events picked up. It was a little slow at first, but first episodes usually are. I was glad to see the action pick up; and then when I saw who The Mandalorian’s target was, I was hooked. Then it got better in the second episode. It added some humor and we got to see more of The Mandalorian’s character. Finally, I like the lone-hero western feel of the show; you can feel the isolation of the character and the environment.

New Super Lucky’s Tale (Nintendo Switch–Playful Corp.): It’s hard not to like a game with a cute fox who wears a cape. The graphics and animations are bright and cheerful, perfect for kids and the young at heart. The game comes with a ton (and I mean a ton) of puns. The characters are also very unique and colorful. I liked the burrowing mechanic; it allows you to avoid dangers by passing under them or you can use it to sneak up on foes. Also, it’s nice to see a game where a tail whip attack actually does something–I’m looking at you Pokèmon (LOL). Finally, it didn’t seem like you needed to be a master gamer in order to collect all the items. I didn’t play the game but watched the gameplay series by Stampy Cat (aka stampylonghead)–the videos are sponsored by Playful Corp.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows–Respawn Entertainment): I haven’t played the game, but I saw the cutscenes and some of the gameplay thanks to Gamer’s Little Playground. The story was very intriguing and hooked me right away. It was great to see what surviving Jedi were doing since the Purge. I quickly became attached to Cal and the other characters. I did notice times where the game got glitchy, such as characters passing through objects. Also, at times it looked like the characters would change appearance slightly. I don’t know if it was just the gameplay or something with the game, but at times the animations–especially during some of the fights–would seem odd. But, I like the ending and I hope this means we see more of Cal and the Mantis crew.

Lady and the Tramp (2019 live-action, Disney +): I think I liked the animated version a tiny bit better, but this version was also great. I liked how the animal characters showed emotion. They looked like they were sad or happy; they didn’t look stiff. I enjoyed how believable the CGI was; I could believe that these were “talking” animals. I also liked how it followed the original but wasn’t a carbon copy. It did start to feel long near the end.

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.
