Best of 2018 - Anime

Written by Shiggins





4 categories. 5 to each. These are the best of every anime I was able to watch this year, and all in one article for your personal enjoyment/hatred. So let's celebrate this excruciatingly long year's ending by looking back at the shows that came out, and judging them! Obviously, with these limitations, some shows won't have made the list but I welcome you giving your favourites to me down below in the comment section!

Note: Spoilers ahead for several anime, but I've tried to keep things as brief as I can for the ones who haven't watched Devilman Crybaby or Violet Evergarden.

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapters 13 and 14 Review - Fated Meeting on the Water and Rain and Shadow

Written by Shiggins

The battle begins again!

A double-chapter review featuring Brandish, Kyria and Touka, while also mentioning Gajeel's past? Well, I'm sure that will make up for the fact that 100 Year Quest predictably let me down in a certain area that I told you all would happen last time!

It must be such a pain to come up with these covers.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

This is exactly what I wanted!

I don't want Venom. I don't want The Amazing Spider-Man. THIS! I want this! I've been saying for years that instead of trying to imitate the MCU or DCEU, Sony should focus their Spider-Man properties on the alternate "what if" incarnations of the hero. We've got a live-action teenage Spider-Man. We've never had a Noir film! A 2099 film! And we've definitely never had Peni Parker, the anime highschool Spider-Girl!

What, no room for Spider-Ham? That's pigcist!

UQ Holder (So far) - Manga Review

Written by Shiggins

Good immortals?

It's a common trope that a magical villain will want to gain immortality so they can then live forever and rule forever. We saw it in Indiana Jones' Nazis, Frieza, Voldemort, Madara Uchiha and so many more. Usually, the villain either fails or becomes immortal with a twist (like maybe they can be captured now or something). UQ Holder is the exact opposite in almost every way, where immortals are the majority of the cast and aren't even the main villains! By that premise alone, I was quite excited.

Note: This monthly manga series is still running. I just thought it'd be important to tell you. Also, minimal spoilers.

Even the guys get shirtless in this series! Risque!

Is 2019's "The Lion King" Manipulative?

Written by Shiggins

Roar for me!

It's a worry that's gone on through the ages, isn't it? Do we live in a bubble? Are we aware of the truth? Should we be aware? Can we handle the truth of our own place in this world, and how much of our own reality should be questioned, brought to the light so we can confirm it for ourselves and change as people! And, as with every philosophical question, that eventually brings me to Disney.

That roar didn't sound like Donald Glover to me!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Messy but fun magic.

The first Fantastic Beasts movie from 2016 was an unexpected enjoyment, escaping the drama of Harry Potter's life and embracing brand new characters with different locations, spells and great creatures, to create the beginning of a film series that I never knew I wanted. So that does place some amount of pressure on the sequel and the franchise as a whole. Does it show?

Note: Spoilers for the previous movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them, will be in this article, as well as some minor spoilers for the Crimes of Grindelwald.

Oh no! Is he going to hurt the Eiffel Tower?!

Fairy Tail 100 Years Quest Chapters 11 & 12 Review - Blade, Armour, Ash & Star and Thunder

Written by Shiggins

Both baes and waifus appear!

Today's double review is all about relationships... By which I mean, the relationships with my favourite characters that show up in both of these chapters, causing me to flip out like I own a diary and want to write my name down as "Shiggins Dreyar". Although surprisingly, a lot less fighting than I expected takes place.

Damn it, where's MY Juvia? Or... am I the Juvia...? Where's MY Gray!?

How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Doctor Whoville?

With Illumination's new Grinch movie out this week, presumably bringing out the Christmas movie early to avoid competition with Disney, I thought it was as good a time as any to look back on the classic 18 year old live-action film that many consider the "original" Grinch movie, despite their already being an animated one released in 1966. Anyway, everyone remembers this film for Jim Carrey's performance, but is there more to it than that?

Oh, look at the good pupper!

Top 20 My Hero Academia Characters

Written by Shiggins

These people are all Quirky!

It's undeniable that My Hero Academia has taken the world by storm, thanks to the amazing cast, the writing, the designs and the faithful anime adaptation that isn't full of filler (hello, Naruto). Of course, the fact that I was reading it before the anime came out only proves how great I am and how I knew it would be popular so I can be super-condescending to you all for waiting until the anime. Anyway, let's hope everyone knows that was me just making a bad joke and pick the twenty greatest characters from My Hero Academia's series as a whole, in both the manga and anime.

Why twenty? Because ten isn't enough!

Note; Some of these characters have not appeared in seasons 1-3 of the anime. So very mild spoilers ahead, but I'll be brief about the manga-only characters for your sake.

Top 10 Worst Marvel Movies

Written by Shiggins

Not everyone gets a super story.

Now that Venom has officially sucked as badly as we all worried it would, I thought now might be a good time to take a look back and see how poorly comic book movies have done in the past. We're in their prime right now, but no history is without some horrifying acts we want to ignore ever happened. And so here are the 10 worst Marvel movies in existence, and that includes all films based on Marvel, and not just those in the MCU. (In fact, none of them are).

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapter 10 Review - Diabolos of the Killing Heart

Written by Shiggins

Why can't they all just get along?

Isn't it so heartbreaking to watch violence. Can they not be friends? Why must this chapter be full of so much fighting? Wouldn't it be better to see Kyria sit down for a cup of tea with Erza, and discuss their differences in morality and views on the world, perhaps coming to an agreement that not only recognises them as equals, but fellow human beings that exist on this one beautiful world together? ...Nah!
Put that dress on someone older so I can like it. I'm not Mest!

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapters 8 & 9 Review - The God Dragon's Melancholy & Black or White

Written by Shiggins

Exposition and splashing!

In our duo review, that is unnecessary late, we see lots of talking, lots of revealing and lots of potential for plot twists. There's quite a lot to go for and you've all waited long enough, so let's just jump in to the theorising and admiring! Oh and someone is pregnant, so that's always fun for stories.

Are they about to make out? Give each other some space, guys. So rude!

Venom - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Like a turd, in the wind.

I'm on record as adoring Venom, one of Spider-Man's greatest foes of all time (if you want to know where I placed him in that rogue's gallery, click on this Top 10!), who has gone from bloodthirsty murderer to antihero icon over the past decade. With Sony feeling the need to make a Spider-Man-less Spider-Man Cinematic Universe, we finally got a return of this monster on the big screen after his disappointing turnout in 2007's Spider-Man 3 and... It's as bad as I feared.

Heads, we eat your brain. Tails, you get your brain eaten.

Dragon Ball Super - Why It's Not Perfect

Written by Shiggins

Another Why It's Not Perfect, because Why Not?

I've been busy for the past few weeks, but let's try and forget about my small hiatus there and move on to a new article. I have already written about Dragon Ball in another WINP article, (click here to read it), but Dragon Ball Super is so special and so strange that it deserves its own look. And enough time has passed for us to properly look back, check out the amazing dub, and get a good grasp on the ups and downs of the second-best section of the Dragon Ball franchise. So here are some of the biggest downs, because writing about ups isn't as fun!

Here's a problem; I NEED MORE!

The Predator - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

What an unimaginative movie name.

And sadly, it is somewhat fitting for a lot of this movie. Not all of it, but The Predator has definitely not provided the worthy follow-up to the original Predator or 2010's underappreciated Predators that fans were hoping for. On the bright side, it very obviously wants a sequel! So... that's something, right?

Great poster, but these titles are getting annoying.

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapter 7 & Eden's Zero Chapters 9 and 10 Review

Written by Shiggins

Here come the changes.

With the hiatus finally over, here is my triple review of everything over the past two weeks! Including my final say about what to do regarding Eden's Zero reviews and if I am going to keep doing them. We've reached ten chapters, so now is as good a time as any, right? So after this review, keep scrolling down to find out my decision.

Yes, Pino! Take over as the mascot! Kill Happy! You are stronger than him!

Top 10 Spider-Man Villains

Written by Shiggins

My hero...'s villains!

I grew up with Spider-Man, or more specifically the 90s animated series on Fox Kids. And I've been reading, watching, playing and absorbing as much Spider-Man merchandise as possible since then. So obviously, I'm super-excited for my copy of the PS4 Spider-Man game coming out on September 7th! To celebrate the release, I'm showing you all my top 10 favourite Spider-Man villains! Post your own in the comments below!

Note: Mild spoilers for the comics below. And no, the idiot who wrote "One More Day" isn't on this list.

I've read enough fanfiction to know where this goes.

The Happytime Murders - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

A Muppet of a movie.

I think we all knew this wasn't going to be a box office success. A movie starring puppets, for an adult audience, and released in August? Yeah, it wasn't going to be a huge hit, but hearing that this caused Melissa McCarthy's worst opening weekend and has had severely negative reviews was quite the surprise. After seeing the film, I can tell you that the response from audiences and critics alike is not entirely unwarranted.

The funniest thing about this movie is that they were actually sued by Sesame Street.

Pokemon - Why It's Not Perfect

Written by Shiggins

Yes, even Pokemon has flaws!

It's the long-awaited comeback of the WINP articles that I know you've all been begging to see!. And what better way for this series to return than by looking at the flaws of one of our childhood's greatest marketing campaigns to make our dumb head buy those toys until we die... Pokemon!

Note: This is about the anime, not the video games or trading cards, or whatever other merchandise.

If you wish to see my other WINP articles, just scroll down to the bottom of this article!

Wow, Pikachu has lost a lot of weight over the years. Good for him!

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapter 6 & Eden's Zero Chapter 8 Review

Written by Shiggins

Hooray for violence!

While today's Fairy Tail chapter made me feel a roller-coaster of emotions and surprises, I admit that Eden's Zero left me feeling satisfied but unimpressed. I can tell it's going to take quite a while before the latter of the two finds its footing, much like Mashima's other titles have in the past, so I'll need to make a decision soon about whether or not I am going to keep reviewing them each chapter, or maybe change how I review the series...

I never noticed the first time she appeared, but her clothing makes her breasts look... free.

Unshō Ishizuka - His Biggest Roles

Written by Shiggins

Rest in peace.

On August 13th 2018, Unshō Ishizuka passed away from esophageal cancer. And as a veteran of voice acting, he deserves to be remembered and thanked for his work. So, in no particular order, I present to you some of his biggest roles that he's been performing since 1984 and that I've been able to enjoy! There's a good chance that I've left out some roles that you've enjoyed, so let me know in the comments below.

Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest Chapter 5 Review

Written by Shiggins

No Eden's Zero this week!

It's been delayed for a wee while, so let's have a nostalgic feel as we focus solely on Fairy Tail in this review! And since we've got a break from sharing reviews, I figured it made sense to see how this is doing as a sequel to the original series so far. While we have the time, right?

Aww, she our sleepy baba.

Teen Titans Go to the Movies - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Better than Justice League?

Whether you love it or hate it, you can't deny that Justice League is one of the superhero movie genre's most mishandled blunders. DC's big-screen movie universe has been full of many misses and far too hits, but the straight-to-dvd animated works are usually considered great. So what happens when DC brings out a big-screen animated movie, combining the best with the worst? Well, apparently we get Teen Titans Go to the Movies!

Believe it or not, this Slade isn't as scary as the original. I know, I was shocked too!

Hiro Mashima Double Review - FT 100 Year Quest Chapter 4 & Eden's Zero Chapter 7

Written by Shiggins

Water everywhere!

Technically, Eden's Zero's water is tears from a robot so it's probably oil or battery acid but I'm still counting it for now! So join me as I review a Water 7-themed Fairy Tail chapter, and then move on to robots crying like babies, and then I cry because I'm a baby, and then you cry because I'm a baby... it's all in good fun.

You know what Fairy Tail needs? A solo arc about Erza, with none of the other main characters.

MCU Movies We Need to See

Written by Shiggins

20 movies in 10 years!

With my favourite movie franchise, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, reaching its 20th movie this year (Ant-Man and the Wasp), I wanted to write an article about it. At first, I considered going for a classic "ranking" of all 20 movies, or listing the 10 greatest villains, but I decided to try some dreaming instead. So instead, I'll be talking about some of the heroes and villains that the MCU has yet to include, and who we will hopefully see something of in the next few years.

Note: Due to legal reasons, many superheroes and villains belong to other companies. So while some of these aren't currently owned by Marvel Studios, I've still included them in the hope that a deal can be made one day. It worked for Spider-Man after all.

Hiro Mashima Double Review - FT 100 Year Quest Chapter 3 & Eden's Zero Chapter 6

Written by Shiggins

Plenty of conflict!

We continue the double review of Mashima-senpai's works with two chapters that begin plenty of problems for our heroes and, thankfully, seem to be keeping them going on their hot streak! With the brief weird moments here or there, because anime is anime and manga is manga and both are just odd. And I know this review is a bit late but work got in the way. Damn you, reality!

Vegeta did it better.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - First Impressions

Written by Shiggins

Episode 1: Mystic Madness.

So it has come to this. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have, for the first time ever, become 2-dimensional cartoons. What has science wrought?! At any rate, I watched the first episode and I have some thoughts to share. So what the hell, right? Here's a review/impression of the first episode, starring John Cena! (In the episode, not this review.) If you wish to watch it for yourself, check it out on Nickelodeon's official YouTube channel!

I'd like to take this moment to point out I'd love to see the original gory comic getting a cartoon one day.

Hiro Mashima Double Review - FT 100 Year Quest Chapter 2 & Eden's Zero Chapter 5

Written by Shiggins

Time for some dragons!

As I mentioned in the previous review (Click here to read it), it looks like I'll be reviewing both Fairy Tail 100 Year Quest and Eden's Zero for now. The length of 100 Year Quest or disinterest in Eden's Zero might cause me to abandon one of them later this year, but I'll stick to giving you a double dose of Mashima-senpai goodness for now.

With this many characters, its no wonder we keep getting spinoffs? Will Jet and Droy have one next?!

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 1 Review - The First Guild and the Best Guild

Written by Shiggins

Fairy Tail Z!

With storyboards, and so I assume the written story, by Hiro Mashima, and the final illustrations by Atsuo Ueda, Fairy Tail has made it's predictable but no-less welcome return! I believed the series would make a comeback after Chapter 545 left the series with an ending that was satisfying but open to possibilities. However, with the story of Acnologia and Zeref over, is there anything left for Fairy Tail to grab us with?

Chapter 545 Review: CLICK HERE

A Laxus spinoff, another season of the anime, Eden's Zero, and now this? Mashima-senpai, you are crazy!

My Top 3 Anime of 2018 (So Far)

Written by Shiggins

Because why not?

Now that we're nearly in the 8th month of 2018, now is as good a time as any to take a look back at some of the anime of the year and discuss the best of the best so far! Of course, there are plenty of anime out there that I haven't seen, and plenty of people will disagree with my choices, but there is plenty of plentiful space in the comment section below! So give it a read, then tell me what your favourites are!

Note: Only anime that began in 2018 counts. So sorry, Dragon Ball Super. Your awesome finale isn't in this article.

MHA Season 3 is not on this list, since it hasn't finished yet. However, it is definitely the best dub of the year so far.

The Dark Knight - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

10 year anniversary review!

With The Dark Knight, one of the highest-rated and most-beloved superhero films of all time, finally reaching its 10th anniversary, I decided it was a great time to go back and check it out! The second of the "Dark Knight trilogy" by Christopher Nolan (Inception, Memento), The Dark Knight was considered to be a game-changer for all superhero films. It got tons of awards, made over $1 billion, and is still talked about to this day. After ten years however, how does it hold up?

Note: Mild spoilers, but you've probably seen the film already so who cares.

Danananananananananana.... BATMAN!

Eden's Zero Chapter 4 Review - Nouma

Written by Shiggins

I think I just got whiplash.

If Hiro Mashima-senpai's goal was to shock me in every chapter as if he put cattle prods in the pages, then he's certainly achieving that goal at the very least. Not only that, but the chapter gets even better because I can't make any unfavourable comparisons to Fairy Tail this time!

....I wish to marry her.

Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Horror holiday!

Unlike most critics, I find myself rather adoring the Hotel Transylvania series. I acknowledge that they aren't as deep as Pixar's masterpieces, or as hilarious as your favourite cartoon series on TV (which I assume is Rick & Morty) but the characters were charming and the animation by legendary cartoon director Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack, Dexter's Laboratory) is absolutely top-notch. However, the newest entry in the series fallen under the same curse that Spider-Man, The Godfather and many other "thirds" in films usually do?

I am aware that America have a different sub-title. But ours is better.

Eden's Zero Chapter 3 Review - Adventurers

Written by Shiggins

Heavy meta(l).

After last week picked up this story, helping Eden's Zero forge a new identity, I was looking forward to today's continuation. However, Eden's Zero is already starting to take a step backwards and can't help but keep bringing up the past. At least we got to see some new faces along with the old.

Damn, I just love gravity powers! (And yes, I'm aware that this is a very specific power to adore.)

Top 10 Sports Anime

Written by Shiggins

Summer sports!

The summer of 2018 is here, and so I decided to celebrate the fact I can't enjoy the cold rain on my boiling face by writing a Top 10 all about the various sports that anime has written about over the years. From the realistic to the ridiculous, anime has done it all. Sadly, card games don't count as sports but you might get a few surprises on this list, so read, comment, like, subscribe, and other things that make you hopefully like me!  All the anime on this list are focused heavily on the sports themselves, so sadly Hunter x Hunter's amazing dodgeball battle is not here.

Eden's Zero Chapter 2 Review - The Girl and the Blue Cat

Written by Shiggins

Now we're getting good!

After last week's opening chapter, which I admitted had a few flaws like many other beginnings in fiction, it was up to Chapter 2 to decide if Eden's Zero was able to live up to the Mashima-senpai name or if it would be a slog to get through and not worth my time. Thankfully, it looks like we have a winner!

Gold star for this design, Mashima-senpai!

Who I Want in Jump Force

Written by Shiggins

Fighting dreamers!

While Super Smash Bros Ultimate definitely stole the show when it came to fighting games this E3, there was another crossover battle extravaganza announced and that was Jump Force! A game featuring several different Shonen Jump characters duelling it out in a 3D environment, with locations such as New York to give the game an extra taste of pizzaz! So I decided to write out which characters I'd love to see make an appearance as a playable character in the upcoming game!

Note: There is a maximum of three per franchise, to keep the roster from going too big.

Characters that are already confirmed are Goku, Frieza, Luffy, Zoro, Naruto and Sasuke. (Light and Ryuk are in the trailer but probably not playable. We'll see.)

It turns out that there is such a thing as too much detail.

Eden's Zero Chapter 1 Review - In a Sakura-Filled Sky

Written by Shiggins

I missed you, Mashima-senpai!

After the end of Fairy Tail, I tried writing some My Hero Academia reviews but I lacked the heart and motivation to keep them going. Thankfully, Hiro Mashima isn't done writing and now we have his next big project, Eden Zero! However, does it manage to live up to the legacy he has created so far, with Fairy Tail and Rave Master? And more importantly, what about Plue?!

So many mixed feelings in this one image!

Why Deku is the Best Protagonist Right Now

Written by Shiggins

I need a hero!

With My Hero Academia Season 3 currently airing, and doing a splendid job of adapting the source material if I do say so myself, now is the best time to talk about the anime protagonist Midoriya Izuku, also known as Deku, and why he is arguably the best hero that Shonen Jump has to offer in this day and age, now that we no longer have Naruto or Ichigo or Light. 

Note: Very minor spoilers for My Hero Academia follow.

Well first of all, he's soooooo cute!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

This series isn't extinct yet!

After 2015's Jurassic World finally brought the franchise back in a meaningful and fun way that the previous sequels had failed to do so, it was inevitable we would get another one. And I applaud that, because Jurassic World's setting is too full of routes and ideas that not exploring them would be a criminal. So does the 2018 entry into one of the greatest movie franchises of all time actually revolutionise the series, or just keep it dragging on?

Note: This is a SPOILER-FREE review.

Why I'm Worried About Star Wars; Episode 9

Written by Shiggins

This one will probably get people angry.

It's impossible to even mention Star Wars these days without someone bringing up The Last Jedi and the divisive opinions it created. Some despised it and will literally call it the worst movie ever made, while others enjoyed it. As I noticed yet another section of Facebook comments complaining about how Rian Johnson has personally killed their families by directing the movie, I started to ponder on the future of Star Wars. Both the movies and the franchise as a whole.

Why no love for the purple lightsaber?!

Ranking the Overwatch Shorts

Written by Shiggins

Four more years! Four more years!

With Overwatch turning two this month, and myself having played over 200 hours on the thing (which is pretty casual when compared to some other players), I wanted to devote my time to highlighting the love I feel for one of Overwatch's greatest assets; Their animated shorts! These amazing videos, usually consisting of just under 10 minutes, have been heavily praised and adored by fans all over, but which one is the best (so far)? And more importantly, which one features the most Tracer?

Digimon Adventure Tri Part 6; Future - No Hope for the Future

Written by Shiggins

Thank Homeostasis that's over!

Those who have read my previous reviews of Digimon Adventure Tri will know that I wasn't looking forward to this finale. I grew up with Digimon Adventure and Tamers, but I'm not the type of guy who is so nostalgia-blinded that sequels instantly make me vomit. I adored Dragon Ball Super, after all. Tri on the other hand has been a ride full of ups and downs, and I was concerned that they wouldn't be able to conclude it well. And...

Deadpool 2 - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

This review was brought to you by the writer of those Fairy Tail chapter reviews!

It was inevitable that the most successful adult movie of all time so far, 2016's Deadpool, would get a sequel as quickly as possible. Well-received and tons of fun, despite such a low budget, the movie was praised from the mountains by fans and foes alike. And while I didn't go that far, I still thought it was a fun film that gave me a nice relief from the serious drama of other superhero flicks. And after the raw drama of Infinity War, it was nice to have some warm fuzzy comedy covered in blood.

Note: This is a spoiler-free review.

Mikan School - Serious Art

Written by Shiggins

Well, this was a surprise!

As you all know from my reviews in the past, I'm not afraid to be blunt. It's one of the benefits of being Scottish. So when I was asked to take a look at this business, I didn't know how to take it at first. However, I quickly realised that they wanted me to be honest and blunt about what I thought of them of them. So I logged in, gave it a look, and now I can tell you all about Mikan School, what it is they do and how I felt going into it.

Avengers: Infinity War - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

10 years, 19 movies, countless heroes!

In 2008, Iron Man crashed into cinemas. None of us predicted that in ten years time, we'd be able to sit down and watch as dozens of well-developed Marvel characters from an entire roster of bright and sparkling movies would be ganging up together in one of the biggest crossover movies of all time. And yet here we are, with the beginning of the climatic showdown that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to for so long. So the big question is... Does it live up to the hype?

To Infinity War, and beyond!
NOTE: This is a spoiler-free review, however I will include spoilers at the bottom of the article. If you wish to avoid spoilers, then you may read until my score and do not go past the SPOILER STONE in the article. I warned you.

Top 10 Dragon Ball Super Fights

Top 10 Dragon Ball Super Fights
Written by: ClayDragon & Shiggins

Now that Dragon Ball Super has finished airing (for the moment) and we’ve had some time to come down off of the massive high that it gave us, we figured that we’d take a look at some of the best fights this sequel series had to offer. To be eligible for this list, the battle had to have been first shown in Super, so fights that were first shown in the Battle of Gods and Resurrection F movies will not be included here.

As is this the case with many of these lists, SPOILER ALERT. You have been warned.

What is the One Piece? - Theories

Written by Shiggins

900 chapters and we still don't know!

The fact that One Piece is still so supremely popular, despite not even revealing the secret behind its own title, is nothing short of a miracle. In fact, it just keeps adding story lines instead of concluding them! And so, it is time to celebrate the release of over 900 chapters of this series (seriously, that is impressive) by tossing my own straw hat in and giving some guesses as to what I think the mysterious treasure known only as "One Piece" could be!

Ready Player One - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Unleash the references of war!

When Wreck-It Ralph was first being announced, all the trailers made it look like it was going to be a festival of characters from other properties working off of each other. Many went to see the movie, expecting to see Ralph and Bowser hanging out together, but it was quickly revealed that the film wanted to focus on its own story and that the other characters were just icing on the cake. And that situation is what Ready Player One finds itself in.

So many references... and yet I didn't see one single Pikachu!
