Littlekenny (Season 1)

Those that follow the blog know by now I enjoy the show Letterkenny. You all also know I can’t truly explain why. The show is just funny to me but has no real plot line in the greater sense of things.

Enter Littlekenny. This animated show takes place a long time before season one of Letterkenny when they are all in school. It tells the story of how our little group became a group in the first place.

The season can be watched in less than an hour, honestly probably less than 30 minutes. Each episode is only a few minutes long and simply tells a small story. It never takes itself seriously and knows what it is and I was ok with that. I never wanted much from it other than some laughs and some quick back story which is what I got. Fans should check it out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Yes Man (2008)

Yes man is the story of Carl Allen (Jim Carrey) who refuses to do anything, he doesn’t answer his friend’s phone calls and even misses his best friend’s engagement dinner. When an old friend suggested he go to a Yes Seminar, it changes his life forever. He makes a covenant to always say yes.

This leads to some interesting things in his life, for example, he starts approving every loan at work and ends up on a blind date with a woman looking for a husband from overseas.  He becomes a much better friend and we learn the reason for his shutting down socially is the divorce he went through a few years prior.

The movie isn’t perfect and it has a bit too much downtime between laughs for my taste but the movie was still fun enough to be worth a watch. Go check it out, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Turbo: A Power Rangers movie

So the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie was fun and goofy with pretty much everything about the show we loved. Well the classic series ended, then came Power Rangers Zeo, and a third series was coming in Turbo, because- 90’s. Turbo, which is one of the least popular Power Rangers series is one of the last to deal with the remaining original rangers. So how do these new rangers measure up?

The story begins with veteran rangers, Tommy, Adam, and Rocky training for a charity martial arts competition when Rocky critically injuries himself, leaving the group one ranger down. A new threat emerges in Diva Tox and her pirates who are on the hunt for a inter-dimensional wizard to reunite her with a lava demon so they can take the world over. The rangers find the wizard  but he’s taken quickly after a hostage exchange gone bad. With there Zeo powers rendered useless, Zordon bestows upon Tommy, Kat, Tonya, and Adam the new Turbo morphers and Turbo Zords while enlisting young kid Justin to act as Blue Ranger as they race to not only stop Diva Tox and save the wizard but also classic past rangers Jason and Kimberly.

As a kid I might’ve liked this movie but as I got older, this movie sucks. It pretty much feels like a really drawn out episode. Their isn’t hardly any action and you barely see the rangers in costume; the new Zords are pretty much just giant cars that become a bland looking robot. The acting isn’t great but I have to say the little kid Blue Ranger is annoying. For people that crapped on Power Rangers 2017, I have to say at least that movie had more going on than this movie which feels like a long episode and marketing tool that I can’t really recommend. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Letterkenny (Season 8)

Here we are again, Letterkenny Season 8. Seriously I can’t quit this damn show. It just does it for me and makes me laugh. From the hockey players and their chirping to Wayne, Dan, and Daryl just drinking beer talking about random stuff, like how you could possibly masturbate in them of December for each date. (Once on the first twice on the 2nd and so on) and yes that is a real example.

That I feel is what makes the show so great, it is simplistic and fun and it deals with things we all deal with while at the same time being so outrageous and out there that it is truly comedic at the same time.

The show honestly is pretty much what it has always been, and if you loved the other seasons you will love this one. So go check it out, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Birds of Prey trailer 2

Lately DC has been on fire with there last few movies and it seems the new directions they’ve been taking are going in the right direction. So I say that to say I’m curious if this movie is either going to be a more cringe- worthy counterpart to Suicide Squad or this maybe decent. I see some potential in this new trailer but I can’t help but feel like it may be a mess. It’s going to be a interesting birthday trip. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Deadpool: Secret Invasion

So I’m calling it now, we’re probably getting the Secret Invasion for Avengers 5 in the MCU, at least Captain Marvel opened the door for it by introducing the Skrull. Secret Invasion essentially is a hunt through the Marvel Universe, searching for the Skrull camouflaged as our favorite heroes. So how does Deadpool handle such a plight?

We follow the great Wade Wilson on a typical day at the office, in this case that means disguised as a baseball mascot to get close to a hit in broad daylight. Well, it just so happens a alien invasion breaks out and Wade gets captured and taken aboard a Skrull ship. The Skrull, obsessed with mastering the powers of supers to add to there Super Skrulls, they want to replicate regeneration capability. Pissed that the Skrull want to take his powers and identity, he tries to break free but can he face these powerful foes?

The ending of this story is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read in a comic book. There is a pretty good story after the Skrull story but the story of Wade vs the Skrull sold me on Deadpool after the terrible portrayal in X Men Origins: Wolverine . The only complaint I have is the amount of foul language bleeped out; it does offer a bit of charm but it gets annoying that you can’t get an unedited copy. If you are new to the merc with a mouth or new to Marvel comics in general, this a good place to start. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie

classic power rangers movie

I’m 28 years old, almost 29, and I still love the old school Power Rangers, I’m not ashamed to admit it; I even enjoyed Power Rangers while Savior sure as hell didn’t ( Power Rangers 2017 (2nd opinion) ). I love the kick ass music, the cheesy acting, and strangely awesome fights. So let’s jump into there very own movie.

We join the Power Rangers as they live there normal lives and the lives of there superhero alter-egos keeping Angel Grove safe from the diabolical clutches of Lord Zed and Rita Repulsa . Tommy, Kimberly, Rocky, Adam, Aisha, and Billy are about to face there greatest threat yet when Zed and Rita revive the ancient Ivan Ooze who Zordon imprisoned centuries before. Ivan destroys the ranger’s command center and leaves them powerless and Zordon dying. The Powers are sent off planet to search for a great power to Combat Ooze but he is mind controlling the adults of Angel Grove to uncover his Zords. Can the rangers stop this ancient monster in time?

Is this movie good in the traditional sense? Hell no. The effects are pretty cheap looking and there is a lot of fake looking wire work, the acting is cheesy and over the top, and there’s a of things to date it. But, all that being said, it’s awesome because for most of it, it’s what we love Power Rangers for. The ranger scenes in full costume are pretty awesome and I do like the costumes aren’t spandex this time and while all the fights are corny, they do hype you up. The second act slows the pacing down quite a bit and admittedly, I wish we had more rangers in costume. In the end, it’s a fun piece of nostalgia for the 90’s kids and I still have fun with it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
