OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes (2017)
When Steven Universe meets Dragon Ball Z, this happens.
"OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes" is a cartoon created by Ian Jones-Quartey, who also worked on Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time and Rebecca Sugar's Steven Universe. It started out as "Lakewood Plaza Turbo", a pilot that was released along with the Steven Universe pilot in 2013.
The show revolves around a kid named K.O., whose goal in life is to be the ultimate hero. With his friends Enid and Radicles (the latter of which is who an adult Steven Universe would look like if he were blue, an alien, and ripped), they all work at Gar's grocery store, owned by the legendary Mr. Gar. K.O.'s mother Carol (née Silverspark) is a former superhero turned fight instructor.
The show's main villain is Lord Boxman, who sometimes dispatches some of his henchmen to fight for him (hint: his henchmen come down from the sky in boxes). Sometimes, the team fights (and messes with) Boxman himself.
In one episode, K.O. befriends Dendy, who should remind some Steven Universe fans of Peridot. She and Peridot have close to the same voice and they're both green nerds. It's also a prime shipping opportunity.
Where it reminds me of Dragon Ball Z is because of the anime-looking characters. I think K.O. could be compared to young Goku in some areas.
My favorite episode of the series as of this writing is "You Have To Care", where Enid catches up with her old rival and former "friend", Elodie. There's plenty of action and a emotional finish. You'll have to watch the episode for yourself to know what I'm talking about.
I think "OK K.O." is a fine cartoon. I'm giving it a 7 because it can be corny and juvenile at times, but not to the point where it's unwatchable for young adults. Kids will love this, obviously, but I think it will be a good successor to Steven Universe when it goes off the air. It's not for everyone, but give it a chance. I think you'll like it.
The Powerpuff Girls (2016)
Not the Powerpuff Girls I Remember
The Powerpuff Girls I knew as a kid never worshiped teen pop groups. Nor did they make outdated internet meme faces. And they certainly never got deserted on an island.
This spun out POS literally destroyed my childhood. I watched the original Powerpuff Girls from my childhood all the way to the series finale in 2009, The Powerpuff Girls Rule! I thought it would be a fitting end to the series and should've been left alone. Fast forward 7 years later, and we have this. Gone are Catherine Cavadini, Tara Strong, and E.G. Daily, in are Amanda Leighton, Natalie Palamides, and Kristin Li as Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, respectively. I wonder why CN refused to bring back the former trio of voice actors to reprise their roles. I'm sure Daily could still pull off Buttercup even while she's still in her 50s. But Tom Kane is back as Professor Utonium, Jennifer Hale is back as Mrs. Keane, Tom Kenny is back as the Mayor, and Roger Jackson is back as Mojo Jojo.
PPG2016 is offensive for those who grew up with the original Powerpuff Girls, and I know the show staff means well, but some things are better left alone. It is starting to go the way of Teen Titans Go! with its childish humor and juvenile jokes. The original Powerpuff Girls was much more mature than this. Hopefully CN doesn't decide to revive Dexter's Laboratory or Johnny Bravo and screw that up, too.
Chronicle is one of those movies that will be worth watching and re-watching again and again. I guarantee it.
Andrew is a Seattle boy who is shy, timid, and gets bullied around, until one night when he befriends a boy named Steven. Andrew, Steven, and Andrew's cousin Matt find a random pothole in the forest that is stuffed with crystals that gives them superpowers. They have fun with their newly-acquired powers.
Andrew lets his powers take over his mind that he goes insane just to help his dying mother. He almost kills his father in one scene out of anger.
In short, this film is worth watching just for the powers and how they use them. There are also a lot of dramatic moments to keep butts in seats, as well. Give it a whirl.
