Spring recap

Movies:

The Smurfs the Lost Village: The friendship between the four smurfs was nice but that’s about it. C

Fate of the Furious: The best villain of 2017 so far. B+

The Iron Giant: This was showing at Mt Hood theater. I’ll take any opportunity to see a 2D animated movie in theaters. The animation, and story really hold up today. A

Gaurdians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Fun, emotional, and great tunes. A

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell no Tales: Too similar but fun. C+

TV:

Samurai Jack Season 5: Great season, nothing else to say. A+

Steven Bomb 6: Great cliffhanger and plot progression I’ve been looking forward to.

Steven Universe Wanted: Great way to start season 5. I wonder who shattered Pink Diamond?

 

March recap

Sorry for delaying the recap. I was planning on combining March with April and May but since there are a lot of movies this month I decided to split the recap.

Movies:

Logan: Though a little too grusome for me but still a great sendoff to Woulverine. B

Kong Skull Island: Very good visuals. B

Beauty and the Beast: Not as good as the orignal but not bad either. B-

Power Rangers: Not enough of the power ranges suits but a nice start to a film series. Krispy Kreme! C+

The Boss Baby: I predicted this would suck, it did. D

 

January and February recap

I’m now combining months in the recaps because doing a recap for each month even though there’s not many movies out those months is redundant.

Movies:

La La Land: Really good movie. My favorite song is Another Day of Sun. A-

A Dog’s Purpose: Cute movie I’m more of a cat person. C

The Lego Batman Movie: Really fun spinoff of an also really fun movie. A-

TV Shows:

Lemony Snicket 2017: Really good start to the series. I really like the the productions deisgn on this show. Reminds me a lot of Tim Burton. Though the casting is a bit odd. B

Star vs The Forces of Evil: Really good end to season 2. The cliffhanger makes me really looking forward to season 3. A-

By the way I went to my first comic con in February. I saw Mathew Lewis from Harry Potter, Alan Tudyk, Kevin Conroy, Loren Lester, and I even shook hands with the voice of Mario Charles Martinet.

The Academy Awards were actually satisfying to me at least until the whole Best Picture mix up at the end. The Ben Affleck and guest part had me in stitches LOL.

November and December recap

Just to warn you that I’ll be on a cruise vacation for the first week of January so I probably won’t be doing a lot until I get back. Expect my top 10 favorite movies of 2016 list around the ninth or later. Hope you have a happy new year.

Movies:

Doctor Strange: Fun and trippy though familiar. A-

Arrival: Good but not my type of movie. C+

Trolls: Not as bad as I thought but still not great. C-

Fantastic Beasts and where to find them: Good Follow up to Harry Potter. A-

Moana: This really did show that two Disney movies in one year can both be great. A

Star Wars Rogue One: Did not expect to love this movie. A

Sing: I like that each contestant had a fair share of screen time. B

 

September and October recap

Happy Halloween to you all! Here’s September and October recap.

Movies:

Storks: Cute but childish at times. C-

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: Good visuals but weak writing. C+

My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree: Not a fan of the Equestria Girls movie but this one might be there best though. C+

Middle School the Worst Years of my Life: Only went to see the 2d animated moments which are great but the film itself is fun and emotional. B

Magnificent 7: Fun western action that’s very similar to A Bug’s Life. B-

TV Shows:

Bojack Horseman Season 2: Funny and Dramatic, perfect balance. A

Milo Murphy’s Law: Not a fan of Phineas and Ferb but this new show is fun. It has Weird Al as the main character what more do you need? Though I’m concerned about that teacher and her love of that desk. B-

August Recap

Movies:

Suicide Squad: Slightly better then Batman vs Superman. C

Sausage Party: A really funny look at religion through the eyes of food. B

Pete’s Dragon: A reboot that’s surprisingly different from the old one. B-

Kubo and the Two Strings: Great animation, great characters, one of the best movies this year. A

This summer was surprisingly meh for movies. At least we have the holiday movies to look forward to.

June Recap

Not a lot of movies this month, next month on the other hand will be bigger.

Movies:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows: Better then the first in every way. Though still kind of Micheal Bayish. Bebop and Rocksteady are the best things in the movie. C

Finding Dory: A great Pixar movie that’s just as good as Finding Nemo. A

Horrible Bosses 2: Didn’t see the first movie but I thought this one was funny. C-

Creed: A little long at times but a nice spinoff of the Rocky movies. I could listen to Fighting Stronger all day, it’s just so catchy and chilling. B

TV shows:

Steven Universe: Best cartoon on right now. A+

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Still good. A

The Loud House: A good reason to watch Nickelodeon again. A-

Voltron: Legendary Defender: The animators from Avatar still amaze me though the cliffhanger ending does lower it’s grade. B

May Recap

Movies:

Captain America Civil War: One of the best Marvel movies and one of the best movies of 2016 so far. A

Justice League vs. Teen Titans: Better then that show that must not be named. Though for a movie that’s called Justice League vs. Teen Titans, there’s not a lot of it. Good character though. C-

Keanu: Funny but it doesn’t focus on the cat that much. C-

Castle in the Sky: I like the adventure feel of this movie. For an animated movie, the animation and art is great. B+

The Angry Birds Movie: Good voice talent, meh comedy though. Did you know Ian and Anthony of Smosh is in this?  C+

Alice through the Looking Glass: Not as good as the first one but it’s fine. C

X-men Apocalypse: Not the best Marvel movie this year but a good continuation of the X men series. B

TV shows:

Steven Universe: The best cartoon on right now has returned. A+

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Still good. Can’t wait to see Fluttershy’s brother. A

The Loud House: A good reason to watch Nickelodeon again. A-
