We had speculated what the fifth Jurassic Park movie was going to be called for a long time with names like Jurassic Park 5, Jurassic World 2, Jurassic War, Jurassic _____, Epoch, Ancient Futures and we finally got the name alongside the new poster which was Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. But is it a good title?
If we take a look at the history of the film franchise we can see that Jurassic Park has never had any consistency in the titles. As a kid I was always bothered by The Lost World: Jurassic Park as I wanted the title to be Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Of course back then I didn’t know that the book sequel didn’t even include the Jurassic Park moniker and only went for the generic The Lost World title. Then we had Jurassic Park 3 which got rid of the subtitles and went with the three claw marks ///. Jurassic World was once again the name of park in the movie even if it did drop Park from the franchises name. And with Fallen Kingdom we can see that the only logic recurring theme is the inconsistency. Continue reading Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom; What’s in a title?→
We have two movies called Dinosaur Island and they were released exactly 20 years apart, both were lower budget films with a limited release but since there really aren’t that many dinosaur movies out there, let’s take a look at how they are and if either of them is worth watching and just how much those two decades changed brought us two very different films.
During the times of Web 1.0 having streaming video was sort of a privilege and not something very common you would find online but we did see the rise of flash which sort of gave us video in the early days. With it we got a few of the first internet memes on the internet, at least musical internet memes. Most of us have forgotten about them and some of us don’t know them so let’s take a look at some internet history.
Thanks to the awful translation in the Sega game Zero Wing we got one of the most popular gaming internet memes that is still referenced to this day. hell the website, all your base are belong to us is still active. Even if its nearly two decades old it somehow still feels fresh and the internet tried hard to make Engrish feel overdone, now Someone set us up the memes. Classic.

I thought I would do something different today and see if I like to do it. I was cleaning up my nerd closet as I plan on selling a bunch of figures and other loot I’ve acquired over the years. While I plan on getting rid of a lot of stuff but I will be keeping my favorite things. I will be taking pictures of figures and making fun mashes from time to time. Unless it’s a huge hit I doubt they’ll be very frequent but who knows.
Nothing quite special today but I took a picture of Shampoo of Ranma 1/2 with Jango Fett as her enforcer for anyone who was thinking of doing any funny business. It was just something I did for a silly picture I was going to send but thought I’d share it here as well. We also have Zen Godzilla raking the sand to better balance out his karma and to let his chakras open up, on the background you can see Gamera trying to listen to the ocean using a shell he stole from the Zen garden.

The 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show by 4Kids came out in my teens and by that time I had long grown out of cartoons, I remember knowing about the show because I was a “gamer” and I was looking forward to the new Konami game and thought the new turtles looked cool. I was also growing out of gaming pretty much at that point in life so I never played the game. Around the summer 2004 I got back into cartoons thanks to Teen Titans and re-watching Batman: TAS re-sparking my interest in cartoons. That’s when I started watching TMNT 2k3 in Miguzi, Cartoon Network’s old block. I watched it for a little bit before Cartoon Network took it off. I later started watching the show on Fox Box or 4Kids TV or whatever it was called and I watched the season that was airing at the time and I loved it. Like the original show, It wasn’t until later that I got to watch the whole show. So here is my review and random thoughts on each season.
Season 1, there are a lot of things happening in the first episode, definitely not a good ‘pilot’ for new viewers but its not bad. Second episode was definitely an improvement. So umm how old is April supposed to be in the show? I’m guessing around 24 since I’m assuming to have that Science assistant job she’s already out of college. Also her work outfit is just her regular attire with a lab coat? Just looks odd to see a lab coat over a crop-top shirt. Aprils first meeting with the turtles was handled much better in the original show and it felt more natural than it did here. Weird seeing something that was actually done better in the original show. Now the third episode does feel like a pilot episode and establishes the status quo, don’t get me wrong the first three episodes are cool for fans but its not a good way to set up the series for new viewers unless it was aired back to back like short movie. I mean it takes three episodes to explain what was done in one episode in the original show. Continue reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2k3 4Kids→
