DRGN: Initiation
    Drake was flying through the air at such a high speed, everything was all a blur to him although Jaune’s screaming was something he could not ignore.  As if someone had heard him, the screaming stopped and Jaune disappeared beneath the trees.  Oh thank the Gods, he thought.
      As he descended into the forest, Drake quickly scanned for his landing spot.  He readied his weapons and with the thrust of his arms, his blades ejected from the hilts, embedding themselves into a tree.  With a quick flip, he was on the ground, reeling in his blades and holstering them, And he sticks the landing!  He then looked around to make sure he was alone.  All clear, Drake thought as he began making his way north to the forest temple.  Within the first few minutes of his landing, the distinct sound of rustling bushes was heard nearby.  Drake upholstered his weapons, the Obsidian Furies, an

Monster Journal 22: Megaguirus
Insects have been around for over 400 million years, becoming the widest assortment of life on the planet.  In their heyday, they were once the rulers of earth, during the Carboniferous period, in which they became giants.  There was however, one species of insect that was far larger than even the largest Meganeura; a species that was nearly invincible for several million years.  This specimen is known as THE fastest monster in Kaiju history.  The Queen of the Meganula: Megaguirus!

Megaguirus is an extremely aggressive monster and formidable fighter, attacking foes regardless of size.  She exists only to steal and dominate.  This is a monster that enjoys causing pain evidenced by her sadistic smile.
Godzilla vs Megaguirus (2000)
During a test involving a new weapon, Dimension Tide, it opened a wormhole.  That night, an insect laid an egg, one that a young

Monster Journal 21: Hedorah
I am a friend of Planet Earth and I do all I can to make sure that nothing bad happens.  However, one thing that has persisted ever since the Industrial Revolutions is pollution.  Pollution harms everyone and everything, it is toxic to wildlife, increases greenhouse gasses and ruins the world we live in.  Thankfully, there are a lot of people that try to reduce the amount of emissions, landfills and highly encourage recycling what is recyclable.  However, what happens when you create a monster that embodies pollution?  You get one of the most disgusting yet dangerous monsters of all time: HEDORAH, the Smog Monster.
 
Art by G.N.A.
This is easily one of THE most dangerous Kaiju as everything in its wake dies.  This was one of the few Kaiju that came so close to killing Godzilla.  It was only thanks to humanity's intervention that the creature was destroyed.

Movie Thoughts: Venom (SPOILERS)
Before I give my thoughts, let me talk about one of my favorite comic book characters: Venom.  I first saw Venom in the 90's Spider-Man show.  Now I didn't know anything about him at the time and thought he was an evil version of the wall crawler.  Plus I never knew why he would refer to himself as "We" and "Us".  However as time went on, I learned more about him and he quickly became one of my most favored characters in any comic.  Plus, I remember just how difficult it was fighting him in the Nintendo 64 Spider-Man game.  As for lie action versions, there was nothing to go on but when Spider-Man 3 came out in 2007, I learned that Venom was going to be in the film and personally, I liked the way he was portrayed but I will go more in depth on that later. 

When I learned that Venom was going to be in his own film, I was excited but became concerned when I found out that the film was being made by Sony.&

Monster Journal 20: Kumonga
Spiders.  They have been a mainstay of horror for decades and it is easy to see why.  They are tied with snakes as the creature that people are terrified of to no end.  However, it is my personal belief that spiders are scarier due to their eyes, speed and that even the smallest of specimens can kill a full grown man in just a few hours with one bite.  To those who are arachnophobic, I recommend leaving because there exists a spider far larger than anything on record.  She is the Queen of Solgell Island and Queen of all arachnids: KUMONGA.

If there is any monster that would terrify most people, this would be the one.  Like the previously mentioned Gyaos, Kumonga is a voracious predator, attacking potential victims of varying sizes.  She does not take sides and only fights when her life is in danger.  Unlike most Kaiju however, Kumonga does not display any malice, she

Movie Thoughts: The Predator
In 2010, PREDATORS was released and I genuinely liked it but due to a mediocre performance, any chance of a sequel was dashed except the sequel comic.  However, last year it was reported that director Shane Black was making a new Predator film.  However, when the first trailer was released, people were unimpressed.  It was at that point that I made a prediction in that when the film was released, it would be treated like Michael Bay's Transformers films: Unneeded, lackluster and a waste of time.  In fact, before seeing the film, I had come across articles saying that the film was a let down, a waste of time, struggling to make its money and my personal favorite, how it needs to break records if it is to break even.  Despite this, I saw the film anyway and it was actually not as bad as people say it is.

I've only seen the film once and don't know everything so I'll give a brief rundown.
The film opens in space with one Predato

Movie Thoughts: Predators
After Predator 2, the series had slowed down, resulting in various games, toys and the popular AvP comics. In 2004 and 2007, the Predator returned in a crossover: the infamous AvP films. Unfortunately, the films were so bad, the titular monsters were almost ruined.  However, in 2010, writer/producer, Robert Rodriguez and director, Nimrod Antal, had finally released a third entry in the Predator series. This one not only went in a new direction, but took place on another planet.

The film opens with a mercenary, named Royce, waking up in free fall.  Just before he crashes through the trees, his parachute opens.  He then meets Cartel member Cuchillo, Spetznatz soldier, Nikoli and Israeli Defense Force sniper, Isabelle.  At first, tensions are high but they calm down and try to figure out where they are.  They then meet Sierra Leone soldier Mombasa and convict, Stans.  After freeing a physician named Edwin, they continue on

Movie thoughts: Predator 2
Predator was one of those action films that left a pretty big impact on people.  It legit scared me the first time I saw it.  Due to its moderate success, it was given a sequel only three years later.  This time, our favorite ugly mother was set in a brand new jungle.

In 1997, in the city of Los Angeles, a war between gangs and cops is raging.  In the midst of the chaos, a one Predator observes a cop, Lieutenant Mike Harrigan put a stop to some of the fighting.  However, the remaining gang members barricade themselves in a building, but are attacked.  The cops are baffled as the gang members are dead but the weapons and drugs are left alone.  Despite his efforts at stopping the fight, Harrigan is scolded by his superiors but is introduced to Peter Keyes, a Federal Task Force Agent. 
Later that evening, a Jamaican gang attacks their rivals leader and ritualistically kill him but they themselves are killed by the

Movie Thoughts: Predator
With the release of The Predator tomorrow, I figured I'd give my thoughts on the previous films in the series.  Just for future reference, the AvP films will not be be included as I, along with a majority of the fandom dislike those films.  Anyway....
I have mentioned before that the Predator is my favorite alien in cinema.  This is due to it having an instantly recognizable design, its hunting tactics and just how ugly it really is.  However, this terrifying hunter just so happens to be from one of my favorite action films of all time (Hard to imagine it was first revealed 31 years ago).

In Central America, a rescue team led by Alan "Dutch" Shaefer is informed that 18 hours ago, they had lost contact with a chopper carrying a Cabinet Minister and his aid.  It is believed that they are now in guerilla hands.  The reason for Dutch's team being asked to help is by the request of CIA liaison, Dillon, saying that his

Monster Journal 19: Gyaos
Throughout history, mankind has been instinctually afraid of two things.  One of them, is the dark.  We never know what could be lurking just outside of our vision and there are creatures that hunt only under the cover of darkness.  One of these creatures inspired the legend of one of the most famous and deadliest of monsters; Vampires; monsters that drain the very life out of you.  Vampires may be dangerous but they are not perfect as they can be killed if one knows how to.  However, there exists a perfect organism, specially adapted for attacking at night.  It was because of this creature, a monster, that an entire civilization was completely wiped out.  The name of this monster: GYAOS, the Shadow of Evil.

Gyaos is easily one of the most recognizable enemies when concerning Gamera.  No matter how many times he beats her back, she always returns, angrier and more hungry.

Biollante showed the horrors of what mankind was capable of when given access to genetic power.  However, she was only the first.  This time, it was alien life that gave this power a try and in the attempt, a new monster was created; one born of Godzilla's DNA as well as its own.  This resulted in a creature, known as the Genetic Monster: Orga!

Godzilla 2000 (1999)
Sixty million years ago, a spaceship crashed into the ocean.  As time passed, sediments built up and it appeared as a meteorite.  In the present day, it was lifted to the surface.  However, as it was once again exposed to light, it began following the sun and was airborne once more.  The rock flew to the Japanese mainland where the military had begun attacking Godzilla.  Once the UFO arrived, it scanned him, finding the genetic material it needed.  However, Godzilla blasted the UFO and it was d

Monster Journal 17: King Caesar
In Japan, there is a legend of a deity that is said to protect its inhabitants.  That deity is known as the Shisa; a spirit resembling a dog/lion hybrid.  These stone statues are located everywhere in Japan and many are believed to ward off evil spirits.  Typically, two Shisa statues are placed on rooftops and gates with one having a closed mouth and the other with an open mouth.  It is said that the open mouthed Shisa keeps evil spirits out while the closed mouth Shisa keeps good spirits in.  However, the inspiration for this legend is very real.  It is said that he protects not only Okinawa but the descendants of the Azumi Royal family.  That monster is KING CAESAR.

Monster Journal 16: Pacific Rim Kaiju
I’m sure as kids, we’d all look up at the night sky and wonder if there was ever any life among the stars.  Not me.  As a kid, I was always down to earth, never interested if life existed outside our solar system.  I guess you could say I was right.  When alien life invaded, it came from a portal deep beneath the Pacific Ocean known as the Breach.  In 2013, something happened that caused humanity to rise up: Giant monsters had appeared, intent on driving humanity to extinction.  Because of these beasts, a war had begun; a war between humanity and the KAIJU.

The word Kaiju is of Japanese origin, literally translating to, "Strange Creature."  The Kaiju are a race of hostile, extraterrestrial creatures with an amphibious ability.  They are also extremely hostile, attacking anything in their path.  They are, in a sense, bioweapons, created by a race of intellige

Found this today thanks to SquigglyDigg's reaction and I absolutely love this, especially the animation.  I think I found a new artist to listen to.  Plus I think this song will fit into a fan fiction I'm brainstorming.

To the fans of SquigglyDigg, I give you, her brand new musical, Welcome Home!  Trust me, this does not disappoint.  This may be some of her finest work yet.  Props also go to Victor McKnight, Gabe Castro, and everyone else involved.

Seventeen years ago today, one of the worst attacks occurred on US soil.  Despite happening so long ago, no one should ever forget what happened, nor should they forget where they were that day.  As always, my thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims. 
Not sure if you all were aware but it looks like Screen Rant has released some information regarding Godzilla 2. And boy does it sound good!

Deadpool 2 poster 003 by JW-Gojifan

Whoo boy.  So yeah, I just got back from seeing Deadpool 2.  Now when I saw the first Deadpool, I liked it but i didn't have enough Deadpool in it.  With this one, that completely changes.  Also, we get Cable, played brilliantly by Than- eh, Josh Brolin and he seemed perfect for the role.  Just the sheer epicness of him bursting into the Icebox to kill Firefist was enough to show that he meant business.
Now there was one thing I was skeptic about when the movie was being made and that was the look of Domino.  Granted I don't know much about her character but the set photos weren't really selling it for me.  I was hoping to be proven wrong in the movie and sure enough, I was.  Domino was one of my favorite characters in the movie and you see the full extent of her power.   I kinda want luck as a superpower now.  Sometimes, I get by enough on luck already, just wish I could make it look cinematic.

The action scenes are great, the interactions between Cable, Wade and Domino are just a blast and we see DP in a new, almost guardian/ anti-hero like sense.  Also, the kid, Firefist, he seems to be the worst kind of kid to make mad.  That being said, you see why he wants to do the things he does but he goes about it the wrong way.

If I had one complaint, it would be that there are not enough fourth wall jokes.  That, and there are things in that movie I cannot unsee.  I mean it, if you have not seen this movie, there will be a moment where it will burn itself into your eyes and you will be scarred for life.

That being said, there is not much to say about DP2 without spoiling too much.  Also, the credit scenes will make you laugh and cheer.

Quick question. Ever since I made the Journal on Pacific Rim Kaiju part 2, I have been thinking of merging them, kinda like how I did on the Jaegers. Should I do that or no?
