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)

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.

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.

Spider-Man Review

 

After several crappy games, Spider-Man is back and given a new lease on life thanks to developer Insomniac games. The game takes a different turn with the story than most Spider- Man games have in the past. This time around Peter Parker is an adult in his early 20s and works as a lab assistant for Doctor Otto Octavius. Shortly after defeating classic Spidey villain The Kingpin a new villain appears named Mr. Negative. Now Spider-man must stop him and bunch of other villains from wreaking havoc on the city.

The game’s story also ditches Spider-Man’s classic origin story and decides to tell a new story outright. Spider-Man is an open world giving you the entire city of New York to play around in. Like most open world games, there are tons of side activities to keep you distracted from completing the main story. The activities vary from finding backpacks throughout the city, taking over enemy bases, to even taking pictures of famous landmarks throughout the city. There are also random crimes throughout the city that you can stop to earn not only experience but crime tokens as well. There are also research stations in the game that have you do research on various things like throwing toxic barrels out of the ocean and rerouting satellite signals. There are also side missions in the game that are also a lot of fun as well. Web slinging does take a little getting used to but it is satisfying and web swinging throughout the city is a blast and very relaxing at the same time.  You can also web zip to make travel through the city faster as well.

Combat is also very satisfying. While you do have your punches and kicks that you throw at your enemies, you can also use your web slinging abilities as well webbing enemies up and using web swinging kicks on them. You also have a focus meter that when full you can either heal yourself or perform a finisher on an enemy. All the side missions that you do in the game give you different tokens that you can use to unlock different gadgets and different costumes in the game. You can also use the various tokens to upgrade your gadgets as well. There are several points in the game where you will play as Mary-Jane Watson and Miles Morales. While you only play as them a few times in the game they still are pretty fun to play. Their missions are mostly stealth missions with you sneaking past guards to get to a certain objective. There are also science puzzles that you solve throughout the game as well. These range from matching up DNA strands to rewiring circuits, while you are required to do them during the main story you can skip if you are stuck or you just don’t feel like doing them outright. Another side activity that you can do in the game is stopping random crimes throughout the city. They range from stopping a bank robbery, to stopping a car jacking, to stopping a kidnapping. All the random crimes in the game happen throughout different parts of New York. There are also stealth portions in the game where you can sneak up on enemies the traditional way and use your gadgets to take out enemies stealthily,  but you can also use stuff in the environment to take out enemies as well.

While as great as this game is there is really only one problem with it and that is that the game can be glitchy at times. For example, when I was playing the game I clipped through a police station and was unable to get out. The game also crashed on me a few times. Aside from that I thought the game was great and I had a lot of fun playing. Spider-man is exclusive to PS4 and is rated T for Teen. My final score for Spider Man is a 5 out of 5.

One Piece(Anime Series)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the anime series One Piece. The series takes place following the World Government’s public execution of the Pirate King Gol D. Roger aka Gold Roger, but the Pirate King’s final words in turn usher in the Great Pirate Age (you want my treasured legacy then you can have it for everything that is mine has been gathered together in one place).

 

Most of the characters possess supernatural abilities which they acquired from eating Devil Fruits. The Devil Fruits in this series into 3 different categories consisting of Paramecia (supernatural abilities-mystical), Logia (supernatural abilities-physical & mystical) and Zoan (supernatural abilities thereby resulting in a physical transformation from Human to Animal).

 

The protagonists in this series are the StrawHat Pirates which are comprised of Monkey D. Luffy (the Straw Hat’s Captain whose dream is to be the next Pirate King)(Paramecia: Gum-Gum Fruit), Roronoa Zoro (a Pirate Hunter turned Pirate whose dream is to be the greatest swordsman in the world)(Zoro specializes in the 3 sword style which is where he wields three katanas in battle), Nami (the Straw Hat’s Navigator whose dream is to chart the entire world), Usopp (the Straw Hat’s Sharpshooter whose dream is to be a gallant warrior of the sea, just like his father Yasopp)(Usopp wields a giant slingshot in battle), Vinsmoke Sanji (the Straw Hat’s Cook (Sanji specializes in a kick-based fighting style), Tony Tony Chopper (the Straw Hat’s Doctor as well as a blue-nosed reindeer)(Zoan: Human-Human Fruit),Nico Robin (the Straw Hat’s Archaeologist)(Paramecia: Flower-Flower Fruit), Franky (the Straw Hat’s Shipwright)(Franky is a Cola-powered Cyborg with superhuman strength) and Humming Brook/Dead Bones Brook/Soul King Brook (the Straw Hat’s Musician)( Brook wields a Shikomizue/japanese cane sword in battle)(Paramecia: Revive-Revive Fruit).

 

In conclusion, I found this series to be equal in popularity to both Naruto and Dragon Ball in series length as well as series storyline.

Aloha Day at Seeds for Autism

SEEDs for Autism is happy to provide organized recreational activities to empower those on the autism spectrum to explore their creativity, share new experiences, connect with others and GROW! At ALOHA DAYS, friends and family came together as a community to celebrate summer, learn about Hawaiian culture and have FUN! We asked some of our participants to share their experiences from this joyful and educational event.

CHRIS M
I went to Aloha Days at SEEDS with my parents. I spent my morning time playing “Topple” with Jeffery. I enjoyed playing, even though I was new to the game. Then my Mom convinced me to take part in one of the hula dances. I did try out the dance moves to make her proud. Then we got ready for Aloha Day lunch, which included teriyaki chicken, steamed rice, and fruit donuts. Overall, I had a nice time.

SONJA
Saturday the 11th of August I went to an event at Seeds for Autism called Aloha Days where we got to learn about the Hawaiian culture and dance the hula. My favorite part was doing the hula dancing. I loved how each dance tells a story about life and love. I got to eat a delicious pineapple donut and rice topped with chicken. I enjoyed myself a lot being able to hang out with friends and learn new things I didn’t know. I can’t wait for the next event coming soon!

DANIEL CH
I had fun at Aloha Day. I played volleyball with a Beach ball. I learned how to dance the Hula. My mom came and she ate Hawaiian food. I wore a Hawaiian shirt and played games. I made a sand castle and saw my friends at Seeds.

BRIAN
What I did at Aloha Days is relax and eat food and listen to music and play games.
