From there to here, from here to there. Funny things are everywhere.”

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Nintendo GameCube and the Nintendo Wii. This game is the 13th installment in the Legend of Zelda game series.

 

The storyline of this game takes place hundreds of years after both Ocarina of time and Majora’s Mask and is set in an alternate timeline from The Wind Waker. In this game, Link tries to prevent the Kingdom of Hyrule from being engulfed by a corrupted, parallel dimension known as the Twilight Realm.

 

The protagonists in this game are Link (main hero)(forms: Hylian/Wolf)(equipment: Sword/Shield/Boomerang/Bow & Arrows),

Princess Zelda (main heroine)(equipment: Magic),

Epona (heroine)(Link’s faithful steed) and Midna (heroine)(Princess of the Twilight Realm).

 

The antagonists in this game are Ganondorf (main villain)(forms: Gerudo/Boar-based Monster)(equipment: Sword/Magic), and Zant (main villain)(the Twilight Realm’s Lord of Shadows)(equipment: Magic).

 

In conclusion, I believe that this game is in fact one of the biggest RPGs in the entirety of the Legend of Zelda franchise.

Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer 2 review

This trailer review will be a mixed between spoilers and theory. If you haven’t seen Endgame, don’t read this trailer review or you have seen Endgame, read the trailer review.

 

My thoughts on the new trailer is Peter mourning for Tony Stark/Iron Man, what i like about Peter’s relationship with Stark is that he’s like a father figure/mentor, giving advice to be a hero and having responsibility, whether it’s being a man in the suit or a man without the suit. 

 

Lot of parts that I like in the trailer is Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, the costume looks awesome, just like in the comics. What interest me when Nick Fury from S.H.I.E.L.D. played by Samuel L. Jackson says: the snap tore a hole in our dimension: Thanos snapped his fingers, opened a hole, there’s a lot of questions to be answered in the film.

 

Cool shots in the trailer is the Elementals: Sandman, Hydro-Man and the Molten Man are a super-powered creatures and I do like how they mentioned Thor and Captain Marvel. 

 

My favorite moment is when Nick Fury tells Peter: are you going to step up or not. what I like about that quote by Fury, is that everything that Peter had learned/experienced in Homecoming, Infinity War and Endgame. Is that he will face new challenges between his life as Peter and Spider-Man, saving the people that he loves/cares about, save the people of New York or any other world he saves and taking responsibility. 

 

So that’s my trailer review

 

The film will be in theaters on July 2, 2019. since the film is the final installment in Marvel’s Phase 3. no official word when the third MCU Spider-Man is coming. but we’re looking forward to the film and future MCU films.
