WandaVision Review by Sonja

Watch WandaVision | Disney+

I recently watched the new Disney Plus show Wanda Vision which sets up two more marvel movies. The show is about how Wanda, after the events of Endgame, became sad after losing Vision to Thanos. She went to a small town called West View New Jersey. I will leave it at that so others can discover the show and enjoy it. I loved the show. The characters were amazing with a few surprises in between. The two leads Wanda and Vision had great chemistry and I can’t wait to see where their characters go in the future. I hope people get a chance to watch it on Disney Plus. 

Ed, Edd and Eddy by Sonja

Ed Edd N Eddy Wallpaper by Eds3999 on DeviantArt

I recently started watching an old cartoon that got picked up by HBO Max called Ed Edd and Eddy. It’s about three friends all with the same pronounced names called the Eds and they live in Peach Creek with the other kids. They are Kevin, Nazz, Rolf, Jimmy, Sarah, Johnny and his friend Plank (a piece of wood) and the Kanker sisters Lee, Marie and May. Then there are the Eds: Eddy the schemer who wants to take the kids’ money, Ed the lovable goofball and Edd or Double dee the smart and organized friend. Watching this show again brought back great memories of sitting in front of the tv on Saturday morning eating breakfast. If anyone is ever in the mood for classic cartoon watch this show.

Luna Lovegood by Jake M.

I like watching the Harry Potter movies. There are many fascinating characters and animals. My favorite character is Luna Lovegood. She has a funny, odd, and unique personality that separates her from the rest of the characters. I Like Luna because she isn’t afraid of being herself even with all of her quirky traits. She’s not one of the main characters, but I like her because she matches my personality.

Luna is first introduced to the audience in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” when Hermoine introduces her to Ron, Harry, and Neville and accidentally calls her Loony Lovegood instead of Luna. Loony is the nickname that people used because they thought she was crazy. Luna doesn’t seem to be bothered by what people say. She ends up becoming friends with Harry. I thought Luna should’ve been the one to get married with Harry instead of Ginny.

Luna reminds me of myself because I was also the odd one out during school and other social gatherings. I was always trying to do stuff I wouldn’t normally do so that I could fit in. Watching Luna’s character made me realize that it’s ok to be different. Luna’s character also made me realize that good people will be my friends because of my real self rather than who I think people want me to be.

Luna’s character is played by the actress Evanna Lynch. Lynch told a story about fan mail she received from people on the autism spectrum in an interview for insider.com. She explains, in her interview, her reasoning for why she thinks people on the Autism Spectrum feel a connection with Luna’s character. “She’s [Luna] just a little bit off-center and more of a misfit, yet she manages to accept herself despite being ostracized for being ‘weird.’ That to me was so inspiring growing up. I feel that might be what fans with autism are connecting with as well.” Reading Evanna Lynch’s theory, helped me understand more of why I liked Luna, and I learned that I wasn’t the only one who liked Luna.

In conclusion, I like Luna because she inspires me and is funny.

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (Review)

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 cast of playable characters in this game are Frodo Baggins (Hobbit)(Weapons: Dagger/Elven Blade-Sting/Stones/Mithril Shirt/The One Ring), Aragorn (Human)(Weapons: LongSword/Sword of Kings-Anduril the Flame of the West) and Gandalf (Wizard)(Weapons: Elven Blade-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic-Fire Blast, Chain Lightning and Heal).

 

The protagonists in this game are Samwise “Sam” Gamgee (Hobbit),

Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck (Hobbit),

Peregrin “Pippin” Took (Hobbit),

In conclusion, I liked how they based this game on its novel counterpart instead of its movie counterpart. It was truly in fact an incredibly, ingenious/imaginative accomplishment on their part as well as an honorably, utmost praise to J. R. R. Tolkien himself.

Image result for lord of the rings the return of the king game

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the videogame version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and Xbox.

 

In this game, the LotR characters you play as are Gandalf the White (Wizard)(Weapons: Staff/Sword-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic),

Aragorn (Human)(Weapon: Sword-Anduril the Flame of the West),

Legolas Greenleaf (Elf)(Weapons: Twin Elven Daggers/Bow of the Galadhrim),

The game’s storyline begins during the Battle of Helm’s Deep with you playing as Gandalf. Afterwards, the game’s storyline splits into three different paths. The 1st path is The Path of the Wizard where you play as Gandalf, the 2nd path is The Path of the King where you play as Aragorn, Legolas & Gimli and the 3rd path is The Path of the Hobbits where you play as Sam and Frodo.

 

The levels in The Path of the Wizard are Isengard where you help the Ents defeat Saruman the White, the Top Wall of Minas Tirith where you aid in Gondor’s defense and Minas Tirith’s Courtyard where you hold the line as you usher civilians to safety.

 

The levels in The Path of the King are The Paths of the Dead which you explore as you seek both the The King of the Dead as well as the Undead Army of Dunharrow, Gondor’s Southern Gate, Pelennor Fields where you aid the Armies of Rohan against the Witch-King of Angmar as well as the Armies of Mordor and Mordor’s Black Gate where you make a final stand against the Dark Forces of Mordor.

 

The levels in The Path of the Hobbit are Osgiliath where you attempt to escape from Faramir and his Ithilian Rangers, Shelob’s Lair where you try to find and rescue Frodo from Shelob the Ungolian Spider, the Fortress of Cirith Ungol where you try to rescue Frodo and Mount Doom where you must both defeat Gollum as well as destroy the One Ring of Doom.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to not only follow it’s movie counterpart in perfect sync, but also make the story concept more action-packed/adventurous/mystically dramatic thus in turn making this a perfect game-related choice “For All Free Peoples”.

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.

In this game, Sonic & Tails team-up with their past selves to rescue their kidnapped friends, defeat both Dr. Robotnik and Dr. Eggman (Dr. Robotnik’s future self) as well as prevent an evil entity known as a Time Eater from erasing all of history.

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.

The Nightmare before Christmas: Oogie’s Revenge (Review)

Image result for the nightmare before christmas oogie's revenge

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie’s Revenge for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. This game was first released on October 21, 2004. This game is a direct sequel to The Nightmare Before Christmas movie.

 

In this game, Jack Skellington leaves Halloween Town again to seek new ideas and discoveries to improve on Halloween. Before leaving, Doctor Finkelstein gives Jack his latest creation: the “Soul Rubber” as a farewell gift.

 

In his absence, Oogie Boogie’s minions (Lock, Shock and Barrel) sew Oogie Boogie back together who in turn takes over Halloween Town, brainwashes Doctor Finkelstein, imprisons 5 of the 7 holiday leaders and attempts to take his revenge on both Santa Claus and Jack Skellington in order to ultimately become the 7 Holiday’s King.

 

When Jack Skellington returns to Halloween Town on December 24, he must maneuver through Oogie’s traps, battle past Oogie’s army of skeletons and ghosts, rescue Oogie’s prisoners and confront Oogie’s Minions (Lock, Shock and Barrel), Oogie’s Shadow and Oogie Boogie himself.

 

The 7 holidays in this game are Halloween, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Easter and Christmas.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to be a celebratory accomplishment to multiple, major, big-time holidays as well as combining the fear with the cheer.
