Final Fantasy VII: ReMake (Preview)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview Final Fantasy VII: Remake for the PlayStation 4. The game is a remake of the 1997 game Final Fantasy VII for the PlayStation 1.

 

Square Enix “ the company that invented Final Fantasy” plans to release the game in episodic installments, with the first scheduled for release on April 10, 2020. The first installment covers the beginning of the game’s storyline from bombing a Mako Reactor to fleeing The City of Midgar.

 

The protagonists in the first installment are Cloud Strife (an Ex-Soldier turned Mercenary)(Weapon: Buster Sword), Barrel Wallace (the leader of the Rebel Force: Avalanche)(Weapon: Gun-Arm), Tifa Lockhart (Cloud’s childhood friend and a member of Avalanche)(Weapon: Martial Arts), Aerith Gainsborough (a Flower Girl and the sole survivor of an Ancient Race known as the Centra)(Weapons: Staff/Magic) and Red XIII aka Nanaki (a Red Lion/Wolf-like Beast).

 

The antagonists in the first installment are Sephiroth (a Legendary Super-Soldier)(Weapon: Masamune), President Shinra (a tyrannical businessman), Heidegger (President Shinra’s assistant and the Head of Public Safety “a euphemism for the military), Scarlet (the Head of Shinra’s Weapons Development), Palmer (the Head of Shinra’s Space Program), Tseng (the Leader of the Turks “ President’s Elite BodyGuards”), Reno and Rude (Members of the Turks) and Hojo (the Head of Shinra’s Bio-Chemical Research).

 

In conclusion, I strongly believe that this game will surpass it’s PS1 counterpart on a level of global proportions and in turn exceed all expectations, beliefs and ideals concerning the vast world of Final Fantasy VII.

The Gentlemen Movie Review

Image result for the gentleman

Here are my thoughts; I enjoyed it, the film had a lot of surprising twists and turns, that you didn’t see coming.

The cast: Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant did an excellent performance and I do give Hugh Grant credit…cause his character was funny and stole the whole movie.

The story was good, focusing on the main character and other characters’ point of view. Also the film reminded me of the first two Sherlock Holmes that Guy Ritchie directed and Quentin Tarantino films.

Guy Ritchie did a great job directing and writing the film.

For the record: the film is R-rated.

I give this movie an A+

What Are Your Goals For The New Year?

New Year New Decade! Welcome to 2020! At SEEDs for Autism our program works with adults on the spectrum to achieve their goals of growth, building confidence, becoming independent, developing job skills, finding employment and more! We asked our participants to share some of their personal goals for the new year.

NATHAN B.

My goal for the New Year is to get s new pair of headphones. I’ve been needing to buy a new pair of headphones. for my phone and I think it’s about time I get myself a new pair. With a new pair I won’t have to turn the volume down super low when watching videos on my phone. That is my goal for the new year.

ANNA P.

One of my goals for the new year is to be more knowledgeable with human history because I’m a fan of it. Plus I have many history books I haven’t read fully and I’m on my phone too much so I want to be less on my phone and more on reading my history books. History would also help me learn about things I need to know as an adult, like how taxes work or how a law is passed in the goverment. I don’t know these things because I forgot what I learned in history class because years have passed since then.

I will feel more confident knowing a lot about history however it will require me to take notes. This is because I have a bad memory and names that are even harder to remember. I want to know the history of many countries and cultures. Taking notes will help as I heard writing something down will help you remember it. I want to learn global history from U.S. to South Korea, everywhere. I will try hard to achieve this goal.

ETHAN

My goal for 2020 is to improve my art and write fictional stories and maybe write a book.

MATTHEW N

My main goal for 2020 is to save a lot more money and to take care of my money and to take care of my family, my house and my job skills at Seeds. Also to just be myself and to look better than ever. The main thing about money is to save my allowance for all the emergencies like a flooded house, broken computers, and stuff that is very important to family. And I’m looking forward to working on my job skills and hopefully to get a job at Seeds. Also, the year 2019 was my last year to watch just Disney movies and for that I am looking forward to watching other movies from the other movie studios.

Cosmo’s life by Sydney

I got Cosmo when he was a puppy. Thru puppyhood, he was mischievous: licking the kitchen drainpipe, bringing rocks into the house and chewing holes in our underwear. He loved to run after bunnies in our yard. Once, he caught a dove in his mouth and brought it inside to show my mom. I remember seeing him for the first time: Christmas 2006. My dad brought this BIG box into the room and set it down in front of me. I opened it and there was this adorable ball of fluff inside, wagging his little tail. He was there when I had my first boyfriend at 17 and first kiss. but , that’s a story for another time. He used to be this active dog, always pawing at the door to be let outside, so he could chase away the bunnies in the yard. Then , he lost his sight in both eyes and his hearing too.  So, at the ripe old age of 13, we made the decision no pet owner wants to make: my mom and I took him to the Humane Society’s vet clinic to end his suffering. Mom fed him multiple treats to keep him calm. When we first entered the room, he began pacing around it and the vet tech administered something to make him sleepy and shaved some of his fur off in order to put a catheter in his leg. Then the vet entered the room and inserted a needle into Cosmo’s leg that contained the euthanasia drug. It was over in a matter of minutes. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room: I bawled my eyes out over Cosmo’s body. The pain of letting go is something I’m still dealing with. But I’ll always have my memories of him.

TMNT : Turtles Forever (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie TMNT: Turtles Forever. This movie was first released on October 29, 2009. This animated TMNT movie takes place in the 2003 animated series as well as both the 1987 cartoon series and the 1984 Mirage comics series (Turtle Prime).

The protagonists in this movie are the TMNT (2003), TMNT (1987), TMNT (1984), Splinter (2003), Splinter (1987), April O’Neil (2003), April O’Neil (2003) and Casey Jones (2003).

We also see cameos of the Super Turtles (Leonardo-Graviturtle, Donatello-Shellectro, Raphael-Griddex, Michelangelo-Blobboid), the 1990 Turtles (Live-Action)(1990), the Apocalyptic Turtles (Same As It Never Was), the TMNT (2007)  and the Metal Turtles (1996 OVA).

In conclusion, I found this TMNT movie to be the ultimate, anniversary celebration to Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird’s entire TMNT franchise. Truly a “Turtle Powered/Ninja Timed/Green Machined/Cowabunga” accomplishment on their part.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Movie Review {Spoiler Review}

Image result for star wars rise of skywalker poster

This review will be a few spoilers, if you haven’t seen the film…don’t read…if you saw the movie…you’re welcome to read the review. I know there’s a lot of mixed opinions about the movie, I respect everyone’s opinions.

 

My thoughts and reaction: I enjoyed Star Wars: Episode IX -The Rise of Skywalker, the final episode of the Skywalker saga. I was expecting a bit of detail of the Emperor’s return…they didn’t explain much…but I find it interesting is the Emperor stays attached to a large machine.

 

One twist that I did not expect is that Rey is Emperor Palpatine’s granddaughter…a lot of surprises.

 

The visual effects looked cool, great music by John Williams and more. Leia Organa played by Carrie Fisher who passed away on December 27, 2016…the film used unused footage of Fisher  from The Force Awakens.

 

Billy Dee Williams coming back as Lando Calrissian was great, it was cool to see Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo

 

I enjoyed the Sequel trilogy…in my opinion my favorite Star Wars trilogies is the original and prequel

 

The cast and crew did a great job in the film

 

I give this movie a B
