Ju-mong!!!

Posted : 7 years, 8 months ago on 24 October 2009 02:17 (A review of The Book of Three Hans: The Chapter of Jumong)

A loose re-imagining of historical story of the king that would begin the unification of Korea, Emperor Jumong. It's a fairly exciting drama with it's share of comedy and action in the mix.

The only con that I can think of right now is that the actors that played the Han had HORRIBLE Chinese accents. Ugh!

Not for the faint of heart

Posted : 7 years, 8 months ago on 23 October 2009 10:09 (A review of School Days)

What starts off to look like a romantic comedy turns dreadfully messed up. I stopped after the first 4 episodes because people were saying something about the unexpected ending, so I skipped and watch clips of the final ep... I've never read the manga or anything, so it was a shocker. A dark drama. I've had nightmares about this sort of thing... You can probably suspect what happens based off of the tags listed. (too many spoilers, people!)

Just not my thing. I like my anime either funny, romantic, or action packed. This one started off as something I'd like, but turned to something else altogether.

The Good and the Bad

Posted : 7 years, 8 months ago on 23 October 2009 09:45 (A review of Back to the Future Part II)

Pros: The future is awesome. Hoverboard, need I say more?
Cons: Seeing Michael J. Fox playing his kids... nonono.

Maybe because I'm a guy...

Posted : 7 years, 8 months ago on 23 October 2009 09:13 (A review of Peach Girl)

This series has so many twists and turns. It's actually hard to watch it straight thru because you're always like... "No way!" and "What? WHAT?!" Perhaps if you pace yourself through it. It was fairly enjoyable though. Just a little much for me.

Classic

Posted : 7 years, 8 months ago on 23 October 2009 06:55 (A review of 我爱邓丽君)

Classic Chinese folk songs, as sung by Jane Zhang. Used to hear these songs wither sung by my mom or on Chinese cassette tapes, so there's a sense of nostalgia there. Now, I'm not very familiar with many classic Chinese tunes, but even I knew three of them!

It's not something I listen to regularly, but I'll pull it out for that sense of nostalgia, or to simply appreciate Jane's rendition of those songs. I love her voice.

The Height of Mega Man

Posted : 7 years, 8 months ago on 23 October 2009 06:11 (A review of Mega Man 2)

The best Mega Man game made, in my opinion. Why they decided to make a gazillion crappy versions after this one is beyond me, though these days it seems like the developers are starting to respond to the cry of the fan boys, with releases like Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 2.5.

How has it stood against the test of time against the newer reiterations of the game? Great platforming game with the right balance of difficulty. For me, it was a game that you didn't get sick of. Back then, NES games that I liked were ones where I could go through within a day, without the frustrations of control issues and poor design decisions. It made it replayable because you didn't have to invest so much time in it, sort of like how Game Boy games are today.

Music was catchy. Design was fun. The game was about figuring out the patterns of your rivals (legendary), and taking advantage of "game flaws" like pressing start a zillion times at that one sub-boss stage...

No sliding.
No side jumping.
No Rush.
No Roll.
No Protoman.

Just Mega Man.
