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.
