iphone_ozTake a Guild Wars 2 Engineer with the conman talents of a Mesmer, align him with a water Elementalist, and bring him to battle again two power-hungry Elementalists, one fire and one air, add some steampunk-based psychedelia, since in the time period of the early 1900s, all the supposedly bad narcotics were commonly used in various over the counter products and totally legal, and you have Oz the Great and Powerful. This movie takes a new approach to the story of a land that can only be found by route of tornado from our world, and tells us how the great Wizard of Oz became such a legend in Americana pop culture. Just like the original movie, the prologue starts in a black and white Kansas setting, but not on a farm in the 1930s. This time it is 20 years earlier in a travelling circus, and focus of the tale is on a mesmerizing illusionist and conman, Oscar Diggs (James Franco), or Oz for short. He has his usual little bag tricks on and off stage, and his escape routes are planned before anyone even know what hit them. He’s a player with the ladies and a charmer for just about everyone until his secrets get out.

quest_for_camelot_front_largeIt was the 1990s and animated movies were outstanding, no matter whether hand-drawn or computer animated. The tales come from the studios of Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers were amazing, and our millennial kids could not get enough of them. The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot is one of those movies. A new take on the Arthurian legend, this focuses on Kayley(Jessalyn Gilsig), the daughter of Sir Lionel (Gabriel Byrne) and Lady Juliana (Jane Seymour). Kayley is enamored with all the ideals of what a true Knight of the Round Table stands for, and wants to be a knight just like her father. At this time, the kingdom is very prosperous and at peace, but too peaceful for one knight in particular. Sir Ruber (Gary Oldman) has become greedy, and looks to take Arthur’s land for himself. To do this, he must obtain Excalibur, and after attacking Arthur to steal it, Sir Lionel is caught between them and takes a fatal wound. Ruber succeeds in getting the blade, and gives it to his hench-creature? Griffin (Bronson Pinchot) to fly back to his keep for safe-keeping.

244585-attack-on-titan-attack-on-titan-cover-artThe great thing about anime is that it is a limitless genre, and just about anything can happen in it. Anywhere, any time, past, future, parallel worlds, contemporary pop culture, you name it. Oddly, considering the title of this series, you would expect a tale about the Greek gods and their enemies and ancestors, but this has nothing to do with ancient history. Attack on Titan is set in a dystopian future about 2000 years from now. The technology has devolved back to steampunk tech, and things look pretty much like they did in the mid 19th century. Right there the similarities stop. This world is nothing like ours is, because there is a new, bold enemy against humanity, and they make any of history’s megalomaniacs look like bully kids on the playground.

Hotel Transylvania (2012) Even monsters need a vacation

Hotel-Transylvania-2015-dvd-coverBack when Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley created these classic gothic monsters to scare us with throughout the ages, they most likely never dreamed we’d love them so much 150 plus years in the future and beyond. Apparently, neither did any of the monsters, because that is why Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) had the Hotel Transylvania built, but that was not the main reason. As humans, and to quote the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast, “We don’t like what we don’t understand…” and such was the way we were with monsters during the 19th century, especially in Eastern Europe, which was about the time Dracula and his lovely wife had a sweet little vampire child, Mavis.

MV5BMjE2MzUwODUxMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTI0NDkzMjE@._V1_SY317_CR15,0,214,317_AL_I just watched Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and this one of the best DBZ movies that I have ever seen. Usually every DBZ movie that I had watched were like a hour, but this a real movie. This movie is about this god name Beerus, the God of Destruction, and he is looking to find the Super Saiyan god. Beerus is like a mummy cat. He acts like a cat and he looks sort of dehyrated. So goes to earth to find a Saiyan god and look for him.

He arrived at Bulma’s Birthday party. Vegeta was scared of him, so Vegeta tries to make happy, because Vetega’s father was his servant. Beerus likes the food on earth, but when he tries to get some pudding from Majun Buu, and Buu refuses to give any up, he goes on a rampage. Mr.Buu eats all the pudding. And we know Buu is stupid. When Bulma came up and slaps Beerus, Beerus slaps her back and Vegeta was very angry. Vetega fights with Beerus to honor Bulma. If someone does that to a woman, I will do the same. Goku came up and fights with Beerus. When he was fighting with Beerus, he be came a Super Saiyan God.
