Image result for epic mickey 2 the power of two

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. This game takes place shortly after the events of its prequel, Epic Mickey. Unlike Epic Mickey, this game features co-op action where player 1 plays as Mickey Mouse and player 2 plays as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

 

In this game, Mickey returns to Wasteland (a realm where forgotten toons reside) only to find it has become inert (due to the damage caused by the quake) as well as finding that the Mad Doctor has turned over a new leaf (which is in fact an act of deception for a much grander, evil scheme). As such, both Mickey and Oswald work together to save Wasteland and Stop the Mad Doctor. The game has two endings (the game’s ending  as well as the fate of the Mad Doctor depends on your actions in the game).

 

The main protagonists in this game are Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Ortensia and Gus the Gremlin. The main antagonists in this game are the Mad Doctor and Prescott the Gremlin.

 

The multiple versions of Pete we see in this game are Big Bad Pete, Pete Pan (Adventureland version of Pete), Petetronic (Tomorrowland version of Pete) and Small Pete (It’s A Small World version of Pete).

 

In conclusion, I found this game to be both magically heartwarming and spiritually, wonderfully amazing. Truly, this is a one of a kind Disney game that has touched and forever will touch the hearts of children throughout the ages.

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+

Power Rangers: I’m Dreaming of a White Ranger (Review)

Image result for I'm dreaming of a white ranger

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review a Power Ranger Christmas episode: I’m Dreaming of a White Ranger. This is the 16th episode in the 3rd season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as well as the 2nd Power Rangers Christmas special.

 

The episode plot is described as follows: ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, and at the North Pole; Brainwashing children was Lord Zedd’s goal.

His inventions were stirring, all the plans have been made; So Rito and Goldar and the Tengas just played.

While Santa and his helpers are held at their shop, There’s a good chance that Christmas will just go kerplop.

Now the Rangers have been summoned to put a stop to this deed, But have they the power they’ll eventually need?

 

In short, the Power Rangers have to save Christmas without their powers due to a combination of the North Pole’s unique polarity and a cross-current of holiday magic.

 

In conclusion, I found this episode to showcase the Christmas spirit both magically and heroically.

Knives Out: Movie Review

Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, LaKeith Stanfield, Jaeden Martell, and Katherine Langford in Knives Out (2019)

My thoughts/reaction to Knives Out is that I enjoyed the movie, it was interesting how the film used some classic mystery thrillers/comedies like Clue, Murder on the Orient Express and more, also the TV show: Murder, She Wrote 

 

The cast did a great job in the film, In my opinion is that Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Lakeith Stanfield and Christopher Plummer…their performances were excellent

 

One of my favorite quotes in the film is Daniel Craig’s character private detective, Benoit Blanc saying: “This is a twisted web, and we are not finished untangling it, not yet.” 

 

I give this film an A+. it will be one of my favorite murder mystery films along with Clue and Murder on the Orient Express 

 

I know it’s too early to talk about a sequel. But an interview with Collider, writer/director Rian Johnson mentioned he would love to turn Knives Out into a series revolving around Daniel Craig’s Detective Blanc solving different mysteries.

In my opinion, I would love to see it.

Hello, My name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite. This movie was first released on December 10, 1988.

In this movie, The Care Bears (TenderHeart Bear, FunShine Bear and Grumpy Bear), The Care Bear Cousins (BraveHeart Lion and LotsaHeart Elephant), The Care Bear Cubs (Hugs and Tugs) and their new human friends (Anna and her little brother Peter) try to help an amnesiac Nutcracker “who is in fact The Prince of Toyland” as he attempts to rescue The Sugar Plum Fairy, recover the Prince’s magic ring “whosoever wears this ring has complete control over Toyland” and  liberate Toyland from the tyrannical wizard, The Evil Vizier and his army of rats, led by the Rat King.

In conclusion, I found this movie to be a true dedication to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker as well as being one of two Care Bear movies to be based off of a different franchise “the other franchise is Alice in Wonderland.”

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review The Muppet Christmas Carol. This movie was first released on December 11, 1992.

 

The cast of characters are Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge,

Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit,

The Great Gonzo as Charles Dickens,

Rizzo the Rat as Himself,

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker as Charity Collectors,

Statler and Waldorf as Jacob and Robert Marley.

 

This movie features a muppet-version of the Christmas Carol that is filled with both songs and humor (most of this movie’s humor centers around Gonzo and Rizzo).
