This little furry critter is called a Wombat. It’s an adorably short-legged quadrupedal, or four-legged, mammal that is native to Australia.

Australia is the only continent that’s home to the Wombat.

 

These little vombatidae members belong to a family of Australian animals called Marsupials, like the Kangaroo and the Koala.Image result for wombat
If you think a Wombat is too stubby to move around quickly, then you haven’t seen them running away from you. Their speed can reach maximum when threatened. But if they can’t escape, they can curl up into a furry ball. What is fascinating is that wombats have  super solid behinds that protect them from predators, like Dingos.

Many wombats get killed when crossing busy roads, with lots of cars going from left to right. In fact, more wombats are killed by cars along with any other animal unfortunate enough to cross a busy road.

Sailor Moon-Movie Trilogy(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review all three Sailor Moon movies. These three movies are Sailor Moon R: The Promise of the Rose, Sailor Moon S: Hearts in Ice & Sailor Moon SuperS: Black Dream Hole.

 

Sailor Moon R follows the exploits of Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts as they try to save both the Earth and their ally Tuxedo Mask from both Fiore (an old interstellar friend from Tuxedo Mask’s childhood) and the Xenian Blossom (a plant-based, planet-killing entity).

 

Sailor Moon S follows the exploits follows the exploits of Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts as they try to save the Earth from being frozen into an icy tomb by an ancient, frigid, interstellar evil deity known as Princess Snow-Kaguya and her icy horde of Snow Dancers.

 

Sailor Moon SuperS follows the exploits of Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts as try to save their ally Sailor Mini-Moon, the children of the world and the Earth itself from being absorbed into the cursed Black Dream Hole which was created by the evil, interstellar, tyrannical dictator known as Queen Badiane.

 

The Sailor Scouts are as followed: Sailor Moon (real name Serena Tsukino/Princess Neo-Serenity)(techniques: Moon Tiara Action, Moon Healing Escalation, Moon Princess Halation, Moon Spiral Heart Attack, Rainbow Moon HeartAche and Moon Gorgeous Meditation), Sailor Mercury (real name: Amy Mizuno)(techniques: Mercury Bubbles, Shine Aqua Illusion and Mercury Aqua Rhapsody), Sailor Mars (real name: Raye Hino)(techniques: Mars FireBall, Mars Celestial Fire and Mars Flame Sniper), Sailor Jupiter (real name: Lita Kino)(techniques: Supreme Thunder, Sparkling Wide Pressure and Jupiter Oak Evolution), Sailor Venus (real name: Mina Aino)(techniques: Venus Crescent Beam, Venus Love Chain n’ Circle and Venus Love & Beauty Shock), Sailor Uranus (real name: Amara Tenoh)(techniques: Uranus World Shaking and Space Sword Blaster), Sailor Neptune (real name: Michelle Kaioh)(techniques: Neptune Deep Submerge and Submarine Reflection), Sailor Pluto (real name: Trista Meioh)(techniques: Pluto Deadly Scream, Chronos Typhoon and Time Stop) and Sailor Mini-Moon (real name: Rini Tsukino)(Techniques: Pink Sugar Heart Attack and Twinkle Yell).

 

In conclusion, I found these three movies to showcase Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts in their finest hours. Thus I leave a message to all evildoers in the words of Sailor Moon “In the Name of the Moon, I shall Punish You!”

(Movie Poster)

Image result for goosebumps 2015

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review  the 2015 movie Goosebumps. The story setting for this movie takes place in Madison, Delaware. The protagonists in this movie are Dylan Minnette as Zach Cooper, Ryan Lee as Champ, Odeya Rush as Hannah Fairchild (Goosebumps book: The Ghost Next Door) and Jack Black as R.L. Stine (the creator/author of the Goosebumps franchise).

 

In this movie, Zach and Champ accidentally unleash all of R.L. Stine’s creations from their respective manuscripts and must now work together with both Hannah and R.L. Stine in order to stop R.L. Stine’s fictional creations before they both destroy the town of Madison and unleash their vengeful wrath upon R.L. Stine.

 

The antagonists in this movie are completely comprised of R.L. Stine’s literary creations. Some of the antagonists are the Zombies (Goosebumps book: Welcome to Dead House), the Mummy (Goosebumps book: The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb), Slappy the Living Dummy (Goosebumps book: Night of the Living Dummy), The Werewolf (classic Goosebumps book: The Werewolf of Fever Swamp), the Killer Bees (Goosebumps book: Why I’m Afraid of Bees), The Royal Executioner (Goosebumps book: A Night in Terror Tower), The Evil Lawn Gnomes (Goosebumps book: Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes), The Abominable Snowman (Goosebumps book: The Abominable Snowman Of Pasadena), The Blob (Goosebumps book: The Blob That Ate Everyone), The Invisible Boy (Goosebumps book: My Best Friend is Invisible), A Vampire Poodle (Goosebumps book: Please Don’t Feed the Vampire) and a Giant Praying Mantis (Goosebumps book: A Shocker on Shock Street).

 

In conclusion, I found this movie to be very informative in teaching us how powerful, influencing and dangerous our imagination can be if it is abused and/or misused.

Halloween Poem

Halloween is a black spider creeping across the blood-stained wall. Halloween is a gnarled tree tapping on the window. Halloween is a bright orange pumpkin shining in the pitch-black night. Halloween is the sound of children in various costumes going door- to- door. Halloween is witches on broomsticks flying through the air. Halloween is a gaggle of monsters on the prowl. Halloween is a haunted house in the middle of nowhere. Halloween is candy being devoured greedily. Halloween is a black cat bounding down the street. Halloween is a ghost popping up in  random spots and saying Boooooooooooooo.

X-Men(Anime Mini-Series)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the anime mini-series X-Men. This series was first released in 2011 and is made up of 12 episodes in total.

 

The locations in this series are the X-Mansion as well as locations in Japan which consist of the Tohoku Region, the headquarters of the U-Men and the Sasaki Institute (a Mutant Academy in Japan).

 

The main protagonists in this series are Scott Summers aka Cyclops (mutant power: Optic Energy Blasts), Logan aka Wolverine (mutant powers: Heightened Senses, Accelerated Healing & Adamantium Claws/Skeleton), Ororo Munroe aka Storm (mutant power: Manipulation of the Earth’s Weather), Hank McCoy aka Beast (mutant powers: Heightened senses & SuperHuman Strength/Agility), Emma Frost aka White Queen (mutant powers: Telepathic abilities as well as the ability to transform her physical self into solid diamond thereby making herself both immune to any and all psionic abilities as well as render herself indestructible), Hisako Ichiki aka Armor (mutant power: the ability to create/generate a Psionic Exoskeleton Body-Armor around herself thereby granting her SuperHuman Strength, Reflexes, Stamina, Endurance, Agility, Dexterity & Durability) and Charles Xavier aka Professor X (mutant power: Telepath).

 

The main antagonists in this series are the U-Men (an organization comprised entirely of psychotic mercenaries whose goal is to capture mutants thus the U-men then in turn dissect them in order to harvest the organs of said mutants thus the U-Men then in turn graft the mutant’s organs onto themselves thereby bypassing the evolutionary process of the human race) as well as a mutant terrorist group known as the Inner Circle. The 4 mutants that make up  the Inner Circle are Rat (mutant power: the ability to generate metal spikes from any part of his body), Marsh (mutant power: Shape-Shifter), Neuron (mutant power: Sensory Amplification) and MasterMind (mutant powers: Psionic Illusions/Mind Control).

 

In conclusion, I found that this series showcases the X-men’s struggles taking place in a completely new environment in their quest to accomplish Professor X’s dream in maintaining/preserving a peaceful world where humans & mutants can work and live together in total harmony.
