I'm checking out another episode of Lucifer... this girl Lesley Ann-Brandt is so insanely hot...might even be a new contender for Magnificent 5 status.... oh yes, this one's salad would get tossed without hesitation.  

Behold:

lord have mercy 😮

ohooooo you know I had to dive into this when I saw it in "recommended" vids [youtube knows us all too well]

 

 

The list is a bit lazy though, it seems... one would expect a bit more details in terms of who earned which spot in the rankings....like mentioning the main man Niklaus Mikaelson but neglecting to mention his hybrid status (along with being part of the "original family") as being a reason he's a top tier in that world.

 

..also---with characters like Dracula, there is immediately the question of which version of him we're talking about, since he's appeared in dozens of things; the original book, comics, animated shows and movies, video games, etc.

 

whoah...no mention of any True Blood characters though?  Bruh...

I saw John Wick 3 yesterday.

 

Pros:

 

Action scenes (Horses, Dogs, and motorcycles oh my.)

 

Some character development and world building

 

Halle Berry. For once shes not playing some meek character.

 

Cons

 

Humor. I also didnt like the fanboy aspect of some of the henchmen

 

There are some Looney Tunes esque actions. 1 is kinda ok, but the other is a pretty WTF moment

 

Overall: 8.5/10

 

JW 1 - 8.5/10
JW 2 - 8/10

cheh,

 

I just got Capcom Beatemup Bundle on Switch, since it was on sale for 12 bucks.. [sale ends 5/23 if I recall]...ohhhh it's absolutely worth it if you like the arcade beatemup genre and haven't played some of these before.  I've never even heard of Battle Circuit until this bundle was released and it's fun so far.  Some I've heard of but just never played before, like Knights of the Round.

For those who aren't already aware,  Path Of Exile is f2p on PS4.  I decided to give it a shot and I'm liking it pretty well so far.  It has a lot of the same vibe as a PS3 game whose name escapes my recollection at this time.  I went and picked the witch character because I figured out what I thought I would need from watching the trailer.  The gameplay isn't that hard IMO, so give it a shot if you're so inclined to walk the path of an exile.

 

EDIT:  The name of the other game was Dungeon Hunter.  It looks and plays a lot like that.

it's surprising anyone is giving it a chance, imo... the movie has looked like a shitty idea from day 1, at least to me....with the only saving grace being the inclusion of the wonderful Naomi Scott.

 

hmm...more Mii character ideas come to mind...I might try to make a "Leonard, Part 6" mii...though it's really tough to make a proper Cosby or any old person character at all...there's only 1 option for making a face look older and it sucks.......it would be so great if Nintendo would expand those damn mii creation options...they're so limited it's just sad for those like myself that like making the bizarre and occasionally disgusting/"bad taste" characters.

I just saw Aladdin 2019.

 

Disclaimers:   I would count the original 1992 film in my top 5 animated films. However, I have not seen it fully in more than a decade.

I have only seen two of Guy Ritche's films - the 2009 Sherlock Holmes with RDJ (7.5/10) and the very boring Man from U.N.C.L.E  (5/10)

My(only) ex gf  sang a rendition of "Whole New world" for me on my birthday and it still holds a special place in my heart.
Aladdin is the only film where I enjoyed ALL the songs. I don't normally care for musicals. 


Pros:

 

Despite all the bad press, Will Smith is one of the best parts of the film, especially in the second act when he's in human /wingman form.  I know I normally rag on him for  "Aw hell naw/ Dayumnnn" mode but he toned that down and upped his charm more. He raps and sings his songs which are decent.  Hes best when hes not doing rote parroting from the 1992 film.

 

Naomi Scott is giving her 110 percent in terms of acting and singing. She is given more depth in this compared to the original. Her new song is good but just under the original songs

 

The sets and costumes are great. Admittedly it looks more Bollywood/Indian than Mid Eastern but its lovely nonetheless.

 

There are two new human characters, Dalia (Nasim Pedrad) and Prince Anders (some white boy). Both are small roles but the former is funny and the latter is trying to be funny.

 

Neutral

Mena as Aladdin is decent. He exudes a sheepish/nervous air but it seems to extend a bit too long. His singing is good. When he becomes selfish, it doesnt feel genuine.

 

Special Fx are good in some spots , bad in others.


Cons

 

Jafar is really flat. I thought they were hiding some grand twist or something to his character, but I guess not. He has a thin motivation to "not be second best" but even his voice is so ineffectual like hes a govt DMV employee. Yes Jafar was a blatant villain in the 1992 film, but he had some menace and creepy/slippery air.

 

Sultan and Iago are basically throwaway characters. Iago does speak here and there but mostly repetition  and a few one one liners. He is involved in one action sequence towards the end.

 

The final battle has less tension due to changed circumstances. One clear cut case of 1992 being vastly better.

 

Guy Ritchie sometimes artificially accelerates the speed during certain songs or slows them down unnaturally. Also, the grandeur of certain songs is less than the 1992 film. I.E. There is less kinetic energy or few extras
Sometimes a character is just in frame singing without changes in camera angles or flair.

 

 

Overall:  7/10.


It will in no way  replace the 1992 film. However, it is nowhere as awful as certain folks are making it seem.

1992 Aladdin - 8.5/10

I don't know why I didn't read that as Diablo 3 for the first like six times, but finally I saw it correctly.  Talk about getting your money's worth out of game.  BTW, is it on PS4 and if not, can I still get it on PS3?

yep, it's basically on everything at this point... 360, ps3, ps4, xb1 AND the Switch 😄....the crazy thing is that there is only 1 of those versions I DON'T have (ps4)....yeah my obsession for that game went that far, man.  The great thing is that the xb1, ps4 and Switch versions are kept up to date along with the PC version....though I'd still say the console versions are superior, actually (offline play is possible; you can trade more items than you could earlier on with PC version; and the console versions gets a "Nemesis" monster* which is a cool, interesting concept, imo)...most PC fans wouldn't really want to admit it

 

*Nemesis--->> a monster that kills you has a chance to become a "nemesis"...you'll know it happens because an awesome red portal appears and it goes in there.  As a "nemesis" now....the monster will return at some random point later to try killing you again and again.... each time it kills a player character, the nemesis becomes stronger and also appears with "shadow clones" of character it has killed.  Even more interesting, imo is how it migrates to the worlds of those on your friend list if they have the game....so your nemesis will also show up in your friend's game at some random time....it also appears with "Killer of ____ [your character's name or gamertag/psn name]" as a title under its name.  It also makes a great entrance; you'll suddenly hear some demonic moaning kind of noise, with tribal drums starting up, building a crescendo....then that red portal appears and there it is, here to kill you and/or your friends once again...

I hope they keep this idea around for Diablo 4; it's quite a cool little concept.

@MillionX  Oh snap, and I get paid Friday too.  I need to take it a little easy on the cash as Summer is always THAT time of year, but I can spare about 60 for D3.  That and POE should keep me happy 'till Bloodstained comes out.

A Jared/Heidi Update...it got even more juicy, folks 🤣 🍿

 

 

I've already seen Endgame but I still can't get enough of this particular trailer. [apparently #3].. it's my favorite one...the music is goddamn FIRE....I've already saved the audio to my phone in a quick bootleg way...I'll get a better quality version later...the building up of the tension, the blaring brass to go perfectly with the visuals...it's incredible, man.... especially after That Handshake and the Thanos voice-over starts...all that brass....sheeeeeeeit Ear-Delicious like a muthafucka, man
