Pony Picks #5: The Mean Six
SPOILERS FOR SEASON 8!!!! If you don't wish to be spoiled, return after the episode's official release.
Hello, everybody! I’m back! And welcome to another episode of Pony Picks! And today, I thought I’d take a look at the Season 8 episode, The Mean 6, which marks the third return of Queen Chrysalis. And honestly, just by that, I’m not looking forward to this. But hey, things can surprise me, and I’m sure once I watch this, I may actually gain respect fo-

First of all, apologies to my neighbor, who’s window I've smashed. I couldn’t help it, it’s just because this episode was so…window-smashingly bad, I had no choice but to physically destroy the most random object…I mean…WOW…Holy crap, wow…what do I even say about this?! It’s awful! It’s terrible! I could rant about this so much that…Screw it, that’s what I’m doi

My Little Pony: The Movie (Updated Thoughts)

Okay, okay, just hear me out. While I don’t think the movie is bad, I don’t think it’s as good as I remember it. Why? Well, let’s go back, shall we?
The film focuses on Twilight Sparkle, as she wants to prove herself worthy of being a princess just like Celestia, Luna and Cadance, but during the preparation for the Friendship Festival, an evil horn-less unicorn known as Tempest Shadow (voiced by Emily Blunt) crashes the party and imprisons the three princesses, but luckily, Twilight and her friends escape, and now must get some help from all sorts of different characters on the way.
I just wanna say, I do still have some positives about the movie. The animation I think is still GORGEOUS to look at. I m

Family Guy Season 1 Episodes Reviewed
So... we're really doing this. There's been no show that I've been harsher to than Fox's own adult animated sitcom, Family Guy. I've reviewed many of its episodes, with the most recent one being Brian's a Bad Father, and I've been doing this since episode 14 of animated atrocities - Seahorse Seashell Party. And I've often claimed that it's delved into being one of the worst shows that I've ever seen. But the keyword there is "delved." That implies that at one point I thought it was good, and you know what I'll even admit that at one point I found it good.
It was in this perfect place where it had enough dark humor for people who wanted something edgier than the Simpsons, but it was tamer than shows like South Park, and a great transitional show in between the two. I can't say that it was ever my favorite show of all time, but I do remember a lot of the gags - like Peter turning the Fonz into a religion - and I remember a lot of the stories and character dynamics.
It's saf

Hotel Transylvania
review by Obake


Hotel Transyvlania touches upon the odd relationship humans have to the supernatural. We all find ourselves relating to the villains of iconic franchises, whether we like to or not. For example, who has not pined to play God a la Dr. Frankenstein at some point, to restore life to the dead? Or be able to transform into animals like Dracula?

Speaking of which, Adam Sandler voices the Count, in his nicest incarnation. This version of Dracula only drinks synthetic blood (real human blood is too fatty.) He runs a hotel for monsters, free from humankind's hatred.  

The Count's daughter, Mavis (voiced by Selena Gomez) wishes to be out on her own. Dracula fears for his daughter's safety, especially when she falls in love with Johnny, a human. She of course does not realize he is a human, because Dracula disguises Johnny with monster makeup. Dracula is too kind to kill Johnny. Through various circumstances, he is unable to simply make him leave. He makes Johnny pretend to be a distant cousin of Frankenstein (voiced by Kevin James, as the monster rather than the doctor), and a hire to be the party planner for Mavis's 118th birthday.

At first I did not care for Johnny's character. He starts out a little too annoying for the audience's sake. However, once Johnny realizes the monsters he sees are real, he becomes more likeable.  

The cast includes an array of iconic horror villains, from a wolfman and his wife (voiced by Steve Buscemi and Fran Drescher), and their dozens (or what sometimes seems like a couple of dozens) of wolflings. To a mummy (voiced by CeeLo Green). There are nods to other franchises as well, from The Blob, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and possibly even Fiends Without a Face, which is always cool.

Hotel is definitely a Sandler vehicle. It contains his typical crude humor, from pee and fart jokes, mostly within the first act. I rarely find toilet humor funny, and this movie is no exception. Luckily there are so many other jokes going on that the rude ones do not linger.  

There are a lot of small gags that work, and a few really great ones. My personal favorite is what happens after Frankenstein cannonballs into a pool. I also like the subtle ones about how Transylvania's Dracula does not get the typical tropes people associate with his character. Despite sometimes being rude, Hotel Transylvania is mostly good fun.  

Spongebob: Sponge Out of Water review

Spongebob The Movie: Sponge Out of Water
review by Obake

The Krabby Patty is not only a delicious burger served at the Krusty Krab, it is also a necessity for the inhabitants of Bikini Bottom. When the secret formula vanishes, it leaves Bikini Bottomites in a panic, causing apocalyptic rampage as they try to get the recipe back. For those not in the know, Bikini Bottom is a town under the sea inhabited by anthropomorphic fish, and also the main setting for this movie and the show it is based on, Spongebob Squarepants.  

Sponge out of Water is the second Spongebob film, and the superior of the two. It takes the wacky shenanigans of the hyper sea sponge and his neighbors, and puts them in a rather cinematic scenario. All of Spongebob's friends think he turned against them and stole the Krabby Patty formula. He has to team up with the Krusty Krab's nemesis, Plankton, who has been trying to steal the formula for years, in order to restore Bikini Bottom back to order.  

I like that so much focus is put on Spongebob and Plankton as a team (or as Plankton says, tee-am.) Spongebob's good nature plays well off of Plankton's egotistical and cynical outlook. Both have to learn to deal with each other.  

I also like that the movie utilizes more of Spongebob's friends than the original. Sponge Out of Water gives each a time to shine.

The film has a grim tone, which I definitely dig. It feels apocalyptic. That said, it is never so dour as to undercut the comedy. While there are no big laughs, it was persistently amusing. It often goes surreal, utilizing its movie budget to go wild with its animation.  

Antonio Banderas plays a live action pirate named Burger Beard, who narrates the story of Spongebob's plight to a flock of seagulls, before eventually turning into the film's villain. He is a great antagonist, goofy yet slightly menacing. The action scenes with him at the end are my favorite portion of the movie.

Sponge Out of Water is a fun ride. It is certainly nowhere close to Spongebob's funniest adventure, but it is by far his most cinematic, but still lighthearted enough to not be bogged down by drama.

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya review

Note: this review is of the English dub of the film.

Based on a Chinese folk tale, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya is ultimately a tale of societal woes. Isao Takahata helms this intricate, visually beautiful anime.   

A humble bamboo cutter (voiced by James Caan) happens upon a supernatural sight: a baby born from a bamboo chute. He takes the girl home to his wife (voiced by Mary Steenburgen, who is also narrator.) It is implied that the couple has never had children, or that they are all grown up and moved away. They take the girl born from bamboo as a special gift from heaven.

The girl grows unusually fast, going from infant to toddler in a manner of days. She befriends local children, who call her “little bamboo”, and is taken under the wing of teenager Sutemaru (voiced by Darren Criss.) They teach her how to catch pheasants and steal crops. Given their clothes are a hodgepodge of tatters, it is apparent how poor these children are.  

When the girl's father happens upon riches, the family moves to the capitol to become royalty. The bamboo cutter, now a lord, believes his miracle daughter is supposed to be a princess, and in a naming ceremony she is given the title of Princess Kaguya.  

This is where the movie showcases the foibles of society. Kaguya (who is voiced by Chloe Grace Moretz), who grew up on a farm, could not care less about rank. Society treats her above everyone else, which at times is fun for her, but more often than not, shows how phony people can be for the sake of someone's title. Take her would-be suitors, five princes who vow to gain her hand in marriage, despite never having met her. Kaguya devises a plan to send them away on impossible quest (each for various unobtainable treasures). But it does not stop them from trying. Their attempts start out silly, but grow more and more sinister, to the point that all humor is lost.  

The supernatural girl cannot seem to catch a break. She pines for life back to the way it was, back to being with Sutemaru and the village children, but is stuck in formal society. Partly because her father expects her to be a princess (he believes the gods sent her to be raised as royalty.) Also, as Kaguya learns, things change. As constant as seasons are, and the world may be, people become different, they grow up, move away, even die. Her life back in the farm lands would be different than it was before. It all makes Kaguya's head spin.

I will not spoil the second half of the film. I will say that the movie reminds me a bit of Raymond Brigg's The Snowman in its visual presentation. The details and characters (especially their faces) have a certain simplicity. The backgrounds and movement are beautifully drawn, reminiscent of ancient watercolors.  

I am surprised it received a PG rating, given how much nudity there is. Though I am sure people being in rags without underwear is accurate to the time period. I would personally give a light PG-13.  

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya is perhaps not the greatest from Studio Ghibli. But there is tons to admire from it, from its visual beauty to the intricacies of its story. Well worth a watch.  

(The film's original title is Ancien and the Magic Tablet)

Director Kenji Kamigawa (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) brings to life an anime about dreams, and the line they share with reality. College-bound Kokone has a talent for napping. Her dreams take place in an industrial city called Heartland, where adults only work in the auto industry, and spend as much time in traffic as they do at work. The land was created by fairy tales her father Momotaro Morikawa, a freelance mechanic, told her as a child. His views on corporations are obvious.

In real life, Kokone is strapped for money, and unsure of her future. Part of this is because her father sometimes accepts food instead of cash from his auto repair business.

Things take a turn when he is arrested, leaving Kokone the target of shady businessmen, who want her father's tablet. Kokone and a friend, Morio, escape and head to Tokyo to find out what is happening. The two eventually find that they can share space within Kokone's dreams, which have parallels to the real world. Morio, a tall, assertive techie, does his best to research the background of the businessman chasing after them, and the background of Kokone's father.

The film is gracefully directed. The animation is fluid, and the settings beautiful. Links between Kokone's dreams and reality become more and more apparent. Most of it, though fantastical, holds some realness in regards to the real world segments. Though near the end, certain probabilities are shattered. Enough to take one out of the film.

Napping Princess is still a good movie. Highly cinematic, and asides from some swearing, fine family entertainment.
