Sonic Unleashed (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic Unleashed for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. Unlike other Sonic the Hedgehog games, Sonic will have two forms consisting of his standard form during the daytime and his Werehog form during the nighttime.

 

In this game, Dr. Eggman unleashes an ancient evil known as Dark Gaia which in turn shatters the planet into seven pieces, transforms Sonic the Hedgehog into Sonic the Werehog and renders the seven Chaos Emeralds grey and powerless. In his Werehog form, Sonic’s speed is diminished and yet in turn gains both immense physical strength as well as stretchable limbs. Now Sonic must restore the seven Chaos Emeralds, fix the planet and defeat both Dr. Eggman and Dark Gaia to break the curse of the Werehog placed upon himself.

 

The nine locations you visit in this game are Apotos (based on Greek Mediterranean architecture-Greek island of Chora, Mykonos Greece/Greek city of Santorini),

Spagonia (based on western European architecture-Italian city of Siena),

Mazuri (based on Africa),

Holoska (based on Alaska),

Chun-nan (based on China’s architecture),

Shamar (based on a Middle Eastern desert-Petra, Jordan),

Empire City (based on New York City),

Adabat (based on Angkor, Maldivian, and Southeastern Asia),

Eggmanland and the Planet’s Core.

 

The cast of characters are Sonic the Hedgehog/Sonic the Werehog/Super Sonic,

Miles “Tails” Prower,

Amy Rose,

Dr. Eggman,

Professor Pickle,

Dark Gaia and Chip/Light Gaia.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to showcase the eternal conflict between light and darkness that takes place in the world as well in each and every one of us. But as long as we all stay true to ourselves, the light in us will illuminate our lives and the darkness in us will be in turn suppressed forevermore.

My Reaction to Spider-Man coming back to the MCU

Image result for spider-man coming back to the mcu

I’m very happy that both Marvel Studios and Sony are reteaming up for the third MCU Spider-Man film and Tom Holland returning as Peter Parker/Spider-Man 

After watching Far From Home, the cliffhanger is a game changer…it’s gonna be a new chapter for Peter and the characters in the MCU and other films

Tom Holland did a great performance as Peter in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Tom’s talented. 

Myself and others are looking forward to Tom Holland’s upcoming films like The Current War, Spies in Disguise, Third MCU Spider-Man film, Onward, Chaos Walking and more

Super Mario Bros. (Movie)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Super Mario Bros. This movie was first released on May 28, 1993.

 

In the beginning of the movie, the meteorite that hit the Earth 65 million years ago caused our reality to split into two separate, parallel dimensions. The first of the two dimensions is the one where we reside and the other one is where surviving dinosaurs in fact evolved into human forms reside (the dinosaur’s dimension is comprised of one city that is surrounded by miles of endless desert).

 

In this movie, Mario & Luigi (the Mario Brothers) travel to the dimension where the dinosaurs reside in order rescue Princess Daisy as well as defeat the evil Koopa (a T-Rex in human form) who intends to conquer the Mario Brothers’ dimensions as well as devolve the entire human race into monkeys.

 

The main cast of characters in this movie are Bob Hoskins as Mario,

John Leguizamo as Luigi,

Samantha Mathis as Princess Daisy and Dennis Hopper as President Koopa.

 

In conclusion, I found this movie to be a miraculous achievement in turning something as classic as a Super Mario video game into a live-action movie version of itself. Thus it goes to show you, if you in fact truly believe then anything is in fact possible.

My thoughts about the Spider-Man split

Image result for tom holland spiderman

My thoughts about the Spider-Man split, is that I was surprised, shocked and curious. watching Tom Holland’s performance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home was excellent.

Hearing a lot of thoughts and opinions from both sides about Spider-Man continuing his journey in the MCU, facing Tom Hardy’s Venom and other characters. 

In my opinion. I do want to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man continuing his journey in the MCU, showing up in other MCU films, Disney Plus and more.

Since we haven’t heard any confirmation about Spider-Man being in the MCU. but we will see soon.

No matter what happens, Tom Holland is a talented actor…we will continue to support him in future films.

The story-setting for this movie takes place two years after the events of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secrets of the Ooze while mostly centering in Japan circa 1603 (Feudal Era).

 

In this movie, April O’Neil is unexpectedly pulled through time to Feudal Japan via an ancient scepter which the TMNT must now use to follow after her in order to bring her and themselves home.

In  conclusion, I found this movie to symbolize and enforce the concept that is Cultural Exchange to a chronologically “Cowabunga” celebration of “Turtle-Power” proportions.

Spider-Man: Far From Home {Movie Review: Spoiler Warning}

Image result for spider man far from home

This review will be a few spoilers:  if you haven’t seen the film, don’t read this review…if you saw the film, read the review.

 

I really enjoyed the film, I like that we get to see Peter moving forward with his life, even though that he misses Tony Stark/Iron Man and confessing his feelings to Michelle “MJ”. 

 

My favorite scenes that I did not expect is Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, who is a former employee of Stark Industries…it was revealed that Beck created B.A.R.F., a prototype system that was introduced in Captain America: Civil War and another character who encountered with Obadiah Stane from the first Iron Man, comes back, he works with Beck. the visual effects were stunning, the scene where Mysterio using the illusions to trap Peter, messing with his mind. One part in the illusion scene is when a Zombie Iron Man crawling towards Peter: that scene was a surprise and shocking.

 

There were a few moments in the film, the friendship between Peter and Ned was great: hope we get to see their friendship continue in the next film. The final battle was an amazing scene. 

 

2 scenes that was a surprise and a game-changer: Peter, MJ and the whole people of New York, watches the news report that featured a doctored footage recorded by Beck, during the battle of London. but that’s not all: the video was released by the controversial news website: The Daily Bugle.Net, the one and only…J. Jonah Jameson played by J.K. Simmons. Here’s the real blockbuster: Beck reveals Spider-Man’s secret identity, it had Peter in a mind blown shock.

 

This is the first time seeing J.K. Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson in the MCU, hope we get to see more J. Jonah Jameson.

 

Another scene is that former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill are revealed to be Skrull’ Talos and Skrull’ Soren, who has been impersonating the real Nick Fury and real Maria Hill, also it was revealed that the real Nick Fury is on ‘vacation’ on a Skrull spaceship.

 

After watching the movie. There’s a lot of questions to be answered is what will happen to Peter, now that the world knows he’s Spider-Man and whatever happened to the real Maria Hill, while the real Nick Fury is on a Skrull spaceship.

 

Could this mean that one of the characters are secretly a Skrull, but will find out in the upcoming Marvel films in the future.
