Since the dawn of time (or in this case a few years ago) there were two great shows. One show consisted of ninjas, and another show consisted of Elemental warriors. One came from Japan, and the other looked like it came from Japan but it was actually from American and was more Korean than Japanese. People liked these shows a lot. But then one day, they argued about which show was better. I read some of these reasons and decided to make a rant.
Seriously, the Avatar and Naruto debate has gone on for long enough and Ive decided to rant about it. I clearly know which the superior show is and its Avatar. Okay, first of all, DO NOT GO ON RANTING ABOUT HOW WRONG I AM UNTIL YOUVE READ THE ESSAY! I expect my audience to have a clear and open mind about this subject. 2nd of all, this is not about power or shipping or art. Yeah, Itachi could probably kill Toph. Yeah, NaruHina might look curter than Kataang. Sure, Kishimoto could have a better art st

In Deep Space
A well-endowed Asari approached from behind to address Saren. "Apparently, there was an Alliance vessel on Eden Prime. It was under the command of Captain Anderson."
"And the Beacon?" Saren asked.
"One of the marines may have touched it."
Suddenly, the blue backdrop turns a harsh red, as Saren throws a tantrum much like the Bioware fans who were given an MMO instead of a real sequel. Just as Saren was about to hit the Asari, he stopped at the sight of her cleavage and calmed down.
"It pays to be beautiful." She spoke to herself.

It seems not so long ago that we saw a young boy from Jersey meet up with a wise karate master super and taught him that waxing cars wasn't so different from defending yourself.
The Karate Kid saga was John G. Alvidsen's Rocky for kids (Not surprising, since he directed both). It's a love story about a boy getting picked on, only to rise up, face his confronters and be with the girl he loves.
The franchise has had its ups and downs certainly: the First was great save for the occasional foray into 80's music choice. The Second was a classic for me: Daniel and Mr. Miyagi go to Okinawa in order to face Mr. Miyagi's past and Daniel facing his own bullies. Now, I've heard a lot of people get on the hate wagon for 3, and while it was a bit silly, it had ever present conflict and there was still a fight at the end.
Then came the Next Karate Kid. By that point, Alvidsen had left the franchise and despite the talent of a young Hilary Swank, none if it resembled Karat

Super 8, a review
Director J.J. Abrams has had an interesting carreer. After having several big hit successes, including but not limited to: Mission Impossible 3, Cloverfield, and the new Star Trek, he also happened to be the head of the phenomeon known as Lost. He makes time for his characters and has a good eye for action.
Having seen only one of his films (Star Trek), I had to say I was very impressed by his work. Of course, the criticism comes that the new Trek does not adhere to the creator's orginal vision. To that I disagree. While a change of pace, I accept that the new Star Trek comes from an alternate universe. While it's different, I don't destroy the 1960's Trek in the canon, it simply happened in another universe.
With that in mind, what does Mr. Abrams have planned for today? FInd out in this review of Super 8.

Green Lantern, a review
Summer really has demanded more of its superheroes. From the God-like Thor to the Exceptional X-men: First Class (Get it? Exceptional?), Marvel has truly raised the stakes for superhero movies to be released. Of course, DC isn't slacking as The Dark Knight continues to reign supreme in the realm of superhero movies.
As one of their other famous heroes, Green Lantern takes the stage, how will audiences react?
It should be noted that aside from the talented Martin Cambell (Director of the likable Casino Royale), it marks Ryan Reynolds lead superhero role. While many have dismissed this actor, he has shown promise and a wonderful charm (when his mouth isn't sewn up ala Wolverine).
With that in mind, let's review: Green Lantern.
When test pilot Hal Jordon (Ryan Reynolds) meets a dying alien, he is summoned to take upon a calling greater than himself: to be a part of the Green Lantern Corps. Being endowed with a ring only limited by his imagination, he must su

Disney's The Princess and The Frog, a review
Snow White, Aurora, Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, and Giselle.
If you were a child in the 90's, well let's face it; if you were a child or a parent in any era, Disney princesses have affected the way you've grown up. The formula is a simple but repeating one; girl meets boy, Disney rewrites formula, songs are song, people come out happy. While there are tweaks and adjustments to the formula, it virtually remains the same, save a few exceptions.
And while these films are ripe for parody and satire, one can't deny their importance. Call Disney Princesses what you will, call them racist, call them sexist, call them canonically inaccurate to their original source material. Just don't call them unimportant. Each

Static Shock, a Review
Lets go back: Its the year 2000. Youre a kid on the sofa, looking for Saturday morning cartoons. You turn on to the WB and find a superhero. Only, theres one thing different about him: Hes black. He wasnt a sidekick. He wasnt a side character. He wasnt part of a team. He was the main character and the star of his own show.
Static Shock was a superhero Saturday morning cartoon that somehow became a cult hit among fans. Many people reference the good days when Static Shock was on the air, and they were right. Static Shock deserves praise because it did things so well.

James Camerons Avatar reviewAvatar, a reviewJames Camerons Avatar review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
James Cameron's Avatar should not be confused with Nickelodeon's Avatar. James Cameron's Avatar is a sci-fi movie which promises to change movies forever. Bryan and Mike's Avatar is about the last Airbender who's destiny is to defeat the firelord and restore balance to the world. That version is being done by M. Night Shyamalan.
Yeah, I'm worried too.
Anyway, James Cameron has always been known for being a director of sci-fi, and a very good director at that. However, in 1997, he came out with the behemoth Titanic which threw everyone off, including the Academy.
Fans love the movie and haters continue to hate. Me? I thought it was okay.
Now, after more than a decade, he mark his return to theatres with the movie Avatar.
Controversy surrounds this movie like a plague. A giant amount of hype has been built up as has a giant amount of backlash. Look at 4chan, and you can see all the haters waiting to pounce on this movie, much like a cheetah pounces on fresh prey.
District 9, a reviewDistrict 9 a reviewDistrict 9, a review5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Viral Marketing has a strange effect on people. Use of internet sources and non-linear advertisement can result in even better results than a traditional campaign. For example, Cloverfield and its non-linear promotional scheme became such a huge hit with audiences and critics that other movies would nonetheless take notes from this.
Thus, District 9 continues the promotional campaign that Cloverfield left behind, as well as another key fact.
For over two decades, there has been an alien spaceship parked over Johannesburg, South Africa. While many of the citizens want them to leave, Mutli-National United wishes to manage the aliens and their advanced weaponry. As part of their continuing control, they wish for the aliens to move several kilometers away from the public. In a documentary style, the film follows Wikus van der Merwe and his attempt to do so. However, a dark liquid sprays over his face as he undergoes an terrifying transformation.

Pacific Rim, a review
In the near future, giant monsters identified as "Kaiju" have risen from a portal in a crevasse beneath the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war that takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity's resources. To combat the monsters, a special type of weapon is designed: massive robots, known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two or three pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge which prevents the mental strain which would overwhelm a single pilot.
As a longtime defender of Michael Bay's Transformers, allow me to say one thing: Eat your heart out, Mr. Bay. There is a new king!
The movie starts with Raleigh (Charlie Hunnam) and his brother Yancy (Diego Klattenhoff) Beckett, being instructed to suit up to fight a kaiju, designated Category Four in danger and size. They wade out into the Pacific in their Jaeger, Gipsy Danger, with orders to kill the kaiju and save the city, but ignore the small fishing boat that
