Everybody's favourite arcade beat em up starring the 4 green turtles are back! But can the 3D visuals make up for the games other flaws?
Turtles in Time for the SNES is just a personal favorite all time game of mine. It is for sure the best beat em ups I have played and when I heard of 3D animated remake I was extremely interested. I downloaded the game on PSN today and it was very cool to see the visuals jump to life out of the arcade/SNES. But other than a few minor CONS it for sure could have been a lot better. First off let me start with my first complaint. THE MUSIC! The music is not TMNT and more importantly it is not good to hear. I would have loved to have the original music here to add for the big nostalgia feel. The fighting system could have had a bit more to it. Updating it a bit would have been nice for more funnier gameplay. What worked than doesn't work now. However the voice acting is nice here making it on par with the original. Perhaps the biggest problem rivalling the music is the removing of some levels. Looks like Ubisoft was rushing to get the game out on XBL and PSN and this caused it's ultimate problem. The game should have had all the classic levels here. By the time I got to the final battle with splinter I realized it was the end of the game and I still hadn't had the classic elevator battle and the coolest and one of my favorite levels of the game which is when you have to trough the foot clan members towards Splinter is a cool 3D moment. To play online is a great add on. Beat em is still fun,to see the graphics and animations come to life is cool to see. You can play story mode,survival and quick mode online with other users.However once you get to 3-4 players the screen becomes cluttered and you lose sight of your character and you get confused with other turtles since they all look the same besides the color of course. Not to mention the constant explosions and foot clan members attacking you does not help however when it comes to the boss battle things spread out smoothly and is clear to play without causing to much confusing even with 4 players. I would say go head and play it only if you are a die hard fan of TMNT and the original game like myself. This for sure is not a bad game by any means. Although because of the removed levels game can be completed in half an hour and that's not even on easy difficulty although the challenge modes and difficulty settings keeps the replay value good.
PROS Graphics, Nostalgia, Beat em up fun!, Online, Trophies, Good replay value
CONS Removed levels from the original arcade/SNES, Online can get clustered once 3-4 players come in, Original music replaced with bad music, Shorter game due to levels removed
Pumping Iron (1977)
Arnold back in the day was simply a evil genius. When i first watched this film i didn't expect it to be as funny as it was, but it was. Arnold is simply great and Lou is great as well. The movie is very inspiring and very entertaining from beginning to end and Arnold really makes it work because if though this is a documentary Arnold himself plays a evil character, telling stuff about how he didn't attend his fathers funeral, getting Lou to yell and saying Lou is a child and he is his daddy. It's all part of the mind games. As for Lou he is basic and great to follow. The best thing about this film is seeing the why Lou and Arnold remain friends even through the entire competition and after. The film is inspiring,funny and just a great viewing experience every time. A must see for Arnold and Lou fans for sure
The Wrestler (2008)
Wonderful telling of the reality of professional wrestling
Writing this review write after viewing the film. This film is a perfect telling of behind pro wrestling. As being a huge fan of the sport all my life and people insulting me and laughing when i tell them i am a fan of pro wrestling they laugh at me and tell me its nothing but fake garbage. I've always known the risks and how this stuff had been staged. People i know after viewing this film who thought pro wrestling was fake garbage before now have a greater respect for the sport. I'm glad a film like this has been made and it's a wonderful drama into the world of it all. Micky Rourke does a terrific job of playing a has-been wrestler. This is certainly one of the best films of the year and a new favorite of mine.
The Dark Knight (2008)
Amazing! Lives up to the hype!
The Dark Knight faithfully lives up to the hype. Everything comes around perfectly. Certainly the darkest Batman film ever and i thought Tim Burtons Batman and Batman Begins was the darkest Batman we will ever see, Dark Knight tops it. And it fits very well, everyone's performance is spot on. When Heath Ledger was announced as Joker i was shocked and outraged even when the teaser was released i was still disappointed and scared with how Joker will be done but by the time of the 2nd trailer was released Ledger made me eat my words. You would think people over react to his performance because of his death but that is not true it is really one of the best performances i have ever seen. Killing and Funny is hard to mix and make it work. Ledger does it. Christain Bale's performance was great the film made me think twice about actually wanting to be Batman, his life is very hard and i think director Chris Nolan captured really the problems of Batman and his life greatly. Some people say his voice is a little over done but i would dis agree he makes it sound like a creature....certainly creepy. Aaron Eckhart's Two Face is perfect! The CGI on the face is excellent and is likely something to what it looked like if that had really happened. Two-Face is probably my favorite Batman villain, you just feel so much for the character and he was brought into the film perfectly. There are also several great actors in this film. Maggie Gyllenhaal is a improvement over Katie Holmes. Morgan Freeman,Michael Caine, Gary Oldman who is one of the best actors of all time. The soundtrack was something I really loved, I never go a day without listening to the score it is just amazing. The special effects is a job well done and the twists,turns and the way everything came around was perfect. It isn't a masterpiece at all.....but it is one of my new favorites, certainly will be a classic.
True classic Horror film.
John Carpenters Halloween is a great classic true horror film, Witch defines evil as the character Micheal Myers as a child quickly kills his older sister for no reason it seems years later he is back and chasing after Laurie Strode and her friends the film is mysterious and leaves a great scare without actually using any blood and none at all swearing witch the remake couldn't make scary without using blood or swearing. Dr Loomis Michael's doctor tried to keep him locked up as a child but failed since he's escaped, There isn't much to say about this movie beside...
It's a true classic of awesomeness.
Super Friends (1973)
As cheesy, goofy and as predictable as every Super Friends episode is it has a special feel to it. The classic sound effects and animation along with a basic fun story to it is what makes this show great. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are mostly the focus of the shows and the rest are sidekicks, a lot of the sidekick heroes i haven't even really heard of. The show featured a lot of villains from the DC Universe, it was cool seeing Batman face of against Lex Luther and Superman face off against The Riddler. The Legion of Doom is the Super Friends enemies it's always exciting seeing them face each other. Of course if this show started at this day and age it would be a huge failure because people are looking for to much these days.There is just something about 60's and 70's cartoons that makes them excellent.
Super Friends 9/10
Really, this is my favorite cartoon of all time. Growing up as a small kid watching it everyday when coming home from school i quickly became a huge fan of the series and Spider-Man himself, if i hadn't had seen this series i would probably never had been a Spider-Man fan. Every episode was amazing they always had a great cliff hanger, great story, great characters, great voice actors and great animation. The Venom Saga was easily my favorite storyline i remember watching all the time on VHS after receiving it as a Christmas present, the storyline was amazing, i didn't read the Spider-Man comics to know the origin of the Symbiote but this TV Show told it better as far as staying in Spider-Mans world.The Storyline was very dark and scary if only the Spider-Man 3 film had followed the symbiote story it would have made more sense and been better but the storyline was pure incredible, Peters dark side was unique and scary. Venom quickly became one of my favorite villain to ever step into the Superhero world. The series didn't have the character of Gwen Stacy but i was totally fine by, i didn't discover her character until years later. The Green Goblin was always my second favorite character of the show his design was perfect and his character was perfect as well and he delivered one of the most amazing evil laughs i have ever heard. The series didn't feature much Electro so that disappointed me because he is my favorite villain ever believe it or not. I always enjoyed The Black Cat and Spider-Man episodes mainly because i enjoyed the love relationship storyline a ton, i enjoyed it more then the Peter and MJ story lines likely because Black Cat was like Spider-Man a lot fighting crime. If you are now in your teens and are a die hard Spider-Man fan it is likely because you grew up watching this series, like myself. This series is very special to me and it will always remain my favorite cartoon series ever. 10/10
Good Spider-Man game
I enjoyed this game. I thought the game play was great and the cut scenes were cool, the story was nice and a ton of fun, the intro music doesn't fit the game at all though. Great to play as Venom here but he could have had some of his own moves because him and Spider-Man seem to fight the same and Venom could have been a little bit bigger in the arms. It is great punching out the thugs and such, and that is the best part of the game. The graphics where nice in the background on houses, trash can e.t.c. The game could have been harder i found it a little easy but sometimes when a lot of baddies gang up on you and it is just annoying. Overall this is an enjoyable Spider-Man game their are a lot of ones that are badder and a lot that are much better. 7/10
Toy Story (1995)
A timeless classic.
Toy Story is truly a groundbreaking film. The animations are amazing and the story and these characters are so lovable,humorous and just flawless no matter how many time you have watched it. Woody and Buzz beat a giant ogre and a talking donkey any day of the week. The animations on the film inspired movies like The Incredibles, Shrek,Finding Memo and others. Toy Story's plot is about a boy named Andy whose playing with his toys, such as a Mr. Potato Head, Rex, and his favorite toy, Woody. He takes Woody into the living room and plays with him some more, where he learns Andy has planned his birthday a few days early, as himself, his mother, and his sister Molly will be moving. Woody gets put back in the room, and when Andy leaves, he's revealed to be the leader of the toys, and orders them to be prepared for the party. All the toys work together, aware that new toys could mean the replacement of current ones, but Woody keeps them calm. After Andy goes through all his presents, he's surprised by one last present from his mother. The present is revealed to be a new must-have Buzz Lightyear toy.
They all return to their places as Andy and his friends come running up to Andy's room. When they all run out, the toys approach the Buzz Lightyear action figure. Buzz does not seem to be aware that he is a toy, which becomes apparent after he sees the package he came in (a space ship shaped box) to be his damaged ship. He believes himself to be a space ranger on a mission to save the universe from "the evil Emperor Zurg." The other toys take to him immediately, being impressed by his many features. Only Woody is unconvinced, showing jealousy towards Buzz. As time moves on, Andy clearly shows to have high regard of Buzz, seemingly forgetting about Woody, as with the other toys who Buzz spends a lot of time with. By the end of the day, Andy sleeps with Buzz in his arms and confirms he has a new favorite toy. Eventually, Woody confronts Buzz while he is repairing his "ship" where he finally realizes that Buzz actually believe himself to be the real space ranger, and not toy model of the character.Andy is given a surprise trip to his favorite restaurant: Pizza Planet. However, he can take only one toy with him. Knowing this, Woody assumes he'll take Buzz so he tries to shove him behind Andy's dresser, but instead inadvertently knocks him out the window. When the other toys learn of Woody's actions, they think he has turned into a killer. They try to attack him without even giving him a chance to explain, but he is saved when Andy come into the room to look for Buzz. Unable to find Buzz, Andy takes Woody on the trip instead. At a gas stop, Woody finds that Buzz grabbed a hold of the family's minivan and is with them. Woody tries to apologize but Buzz won't listen, and starts a fight which knocks both out of the minivan that causes them to be left behind. I remember watching this film when i was about four years old and having Woody and Buss figures and waiting for them to come to life when they thought i wasn't looking. That's the impact a film and interesting Toy characters could do to a little kid. This film remains my favorite animated movie ever and one of my favorite movies ever. Talking Toys, a mean bully who hates toys, a thrilling adventure with spectacular animation and some of the best characters ever. There is not much to go into about the plot or anything, it is simply put a perfect film for all ages it even has some small adult humor and that you don't get anymore. 10/10
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
Indys return is rather weak however Harrison Ford and the crew delivers a entertaining movie.
The way to far fetched Indiana Jones seems to go fall down three rivers including one like Niagra Falls, go flying in a fridge after a huge nuclear explosion and walk away from it no problem making you think "has Indy somehow gotten mutant powers of Wolverine within the last 19 years?" One of the most annoying thing is that even for Indiana Jones it has turned into a major CGI feast including CGI monkeys, ants,trucks,vines and maybe even that whip and the whip is only used a couple times within the whole film. The plot is entertaining and catches your attention but its odd how the main treasure is just being man hand-held and tossed around like a rag doll. The opening could have been better and more epic however the end was fairly good. Indy's return is action packed and a thrill adventure though the plot is weak and the amounts of CGI and far fetched occurrences cant be ignored is was not worth the wait but it is good enough to check out if your not a die hard Indy fan. If you are then beware. 6/10
