Sailor Moon-Movie Trilogy(Review)

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!”

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Doing something new can be frightening. In some cases though, doing new things can be awesome if it pertains to something you’re passionate about. Seeds for Autism has added a new department called the Media Lab. Students like me get to learn about framing shots and how to operate video cameras. We also get to learn how to setup stories. I’ve always been a big movie fan. However, the purpose of the Seeds media lab is to record videos promoting Seeds products. I’m good with promoting Seeds. I feel the media lab will be great for me because it allows me to pursue my interest in video and production and it will allow me the opportunity to make more people aware about Seeds and what we do.

The grand opening of our Media Lab!
