I don’t know about you but that was epic funny! I know those who play Clash of Clans as much as I do will find this commercial beyond funny!I mean who isn’t playing Clash of Clans?! Just need to make a mental note. Do not attack angryneeson52…
So while I was just browsing the internet I stubbled upon my favorite torrent site. For a minute they had a counter for February 1st. I thought maybe they was coming back around that time. Well to my surprise they are up much earlier than expected. Now I am not sure who is hosting the site and where they set up the servers but the logo they have up is pretty cool. For those who don’t know it is the Phoenix. In greek mythology it was a bird that once it dies is reborn once again. So from the ashes of the dead pirate bay site a new one was reborn. Epic.
So if you never really downloaded from that torrent site this means nothing to you. But for many this is a God sent lol. Anyway we will see how long this site stays up. We all know the owners of the site was under heavy legal battles and even sent to jail. I guess you can’t keep a good thing down!
So we still here in the exam room of the Chunin exams. We have Neji taking lead. In truth we all know Neji ain’t no fool and after losing to Naruto in the last Chunin exams he ain’t making the same noob mistakes.
So Long and short Neji started to hit the wall to send a message to his teammates on what to do for the questions. Then Shikimaru throwed in another question to mess with them. Basically he asked who would they send out as a decoy if they was in a battle. We all know it was a trick question.
Side bar moment we have the man Danzo dropping some info about Hanzo. Which in reality he still had the Hidden Leaf Village on his mind. Still a douche bag. Glad he dead. He died like a G though.
This episode isn’t worth your time. If you want to watch it go ahead. Watching Neji getting some air time is ok. The next episode starts the second part of the Chunin Exams. So save that good ramen for when the fluff is over and we back on track. Cause I can’t wait to see how Naruto gonna fight death this time around.
So anyway the first test is happening and it is all about mind games. To be honest I was bored out of mind watching this episode. Nothing of any value happened on this episode. All we know is that Shikimaru is testing them and we all know the leader will rise to the occasion.
I have watched Justice League: Throne of Atlantis four times.
The first time I fell asleep…but that wasn’t solely the fault of the movie. The second time I found myself drawn to the negatives. The third time I saw all the pearls. The fourth time I felt confident in my assessment of what this movie was…and what it wasn’t.
I feel the movie opened strong. In the cold open you see evidence of the popularity of the Justice League (who the government might have called the ‘Super Seven’ if it had tested better) but at this point its more driven by PR than reality. We also get to see a side of Cyborg I never realised I longed for. We got to see Victor. Since Cyborg is mostly machine and it’s the machine that makes him super, it was refreshing to see him struggle to keep his humanity when the world celebrated him for being more than human.
Since I do love flaws in my heroes, seeing a drunk ‘not yet’ Aquaman (AM) in a bar brawl and mourning the loss of his father was great.
What was a HUGE failure to me was the inorganic and painful way they tried to force the Superman-Wonder-Woman relationship. Actually all of the relationships in the movie were poorly paced and explored. The only thing I can imagine is that the scenes were written assuming that we shared the IQ of the fictional human world (you know the world where two of the most famous unmasked super heroes can be out on a date and not be recognised because they put on glasses).
- Mera. Her voice actress is great. Her character has presence. All I can say is “more Mera please”.
- Banter. Shazam provides comic relief from the prospective of the child he is, while Green Lantern and Flash deliver one-liners that make you smile.
- John Henry
- A nod to ‘Deep Blue Sea’.
- How Arthur gets his AM suit
- Aquaman hurt his right hand.
- Neck Muscles. The very talented artists over at DC have a rare disease where they must over sexualise women or draw men like they are in a Super Saiyan power up contest.
- Continuity. (I won’t ruin it for you completely by listing)
- The awesomeness that is Black Manta was wasted in this movie.
- Wonder-Woman fails to read the battlefield (throwing water creatures in the water…really WW?)
- Military prepared to shoot…a tidal wave (wth?)
- Underwater Superman reigns…on land i’ts all about Aquaman?
I give the movie a 3 of 5 (yay to rounding up). The premise was solid but the execution was lacking. The pace felt too rushed though the movie could have joined the ranks of other great DC offerings if they had considered making it a two part presentation instead of one movie. I did, however, like this version of AM over the previous and it was interesting to keep his mother alive. It didn’t escape me that this virtually indestructible AM didn’t seem to show weakness to needing to have water contact…so I’m curious if this was an oversight or a sign of things to come.
Did this movie make me an Aquaman fan…no…but the opportunity for him to earn my respect is now there. That’s right folks, I no longer think Aquaman is the most useless member of the DC universe…that honour now belongs to Zan.
Yep. Never fails. Just when things getting spicy. Naruto and Sasuke is near death. Madara tearing stuff up. Now we have a flash back with Lady Tsunade. Someone please tell me this isn’t happening. Well I guess I better enjoy it.
The Chunin exams. Yep. The last one got jacked up and they basically walking us through when everyone was training. We get to see some familiar faces.
Jiraiya. Nice to see him training Naruto. I mean unlike Sasuke who walk in the bush and suddenly learned a new Jutsu out of the blue. Either way watching that was nice.
Then we have the politics of the Narutoverse. Yeah buddy it is amazing to see how everyone is working together for the great ninja war. Well when you hear man like Madara is still alive you have to put aside your differences ASAP. Lady Tsunade sent out the invitation for the Chunin Exams.
Check joke. Man done start plotting and ting. But I guess that is how it is. A time to check out the competition. See who is trying to move in man territory and ting. Sand Village man looking to kill Gaara. Well Gaara look like he ain’t even scared. He like another Tupac.
These two episodes was like an appetizer. The main course should be coming soon. I can’t wait to see how Naruto gonna pull out of this mess. Until then better brace myself for the amount fluff episodes coming our way. Till then stay frosty!
