The Magnificent 8: First Scene
The Magnificent Eight: The First Campout
Scene 1: Finding Camp
Narrator: The smoke from the now destroyed Tower Rosa was the only thing visible from the distance the eight brave individuals had traveled .  The battles they endured there felt so long and harsh, yet it was all still vivid in their minds, as was the final words from C-man's brother, Orin:
Orin: The events of this day will not go unnoticed.  You might not realize it now, but so your government will do all they can to take you down.  I will do the best that I can for all of you, but for now, run…  Run away and don't turn back.  When it's all over, I'll be sure to meet with you.  Until then…  Good luck."
Narrator: Still not fully understanding what he said, the eight did what they were told, and ran; it was the only thing they could do, as they were vastly outnumbered, plus they knew their friends and companions had already e

The Magnificent Eight Info
Matthew E. Bankey – Called “Matt” for short; the main character and supposed “leader” of the group soon to be known as “The Magnificent Eight”.  He’s just your average adolescent, does what’s right, but has his own, unique interests.  He wields a powerful, fire-powered bat that changes into a sword.
Samuel Paddington Bankey – Called “S.P.” for short; Matt’s younger brother.  He’s young and naïve, pretty much believes anything told to him.  He’s pretty much the pure innocence of the entire group, and can sense the good in others.  He wields two Earth-shaking yo-yos that change into shields.
Knuckle – A member of an, as of yet, unknown species.  Although he’s human-like enough, his appearance has caused some misfortune.  Still, he’s a very reliable friend to Matt and co.  He acts as an older brother figure to Matt a

Dairanto Smash Bros. X
Dairantō Smash Bros. X</b>
An original work by
Matthew "Ed" Bankey
In a stadium in a place far away,
Where winners are victorious and losers fall,
All of Nintendo's All-Stars come to play,
In an event known as Super Smash Bros. Brawl!
Mario is there, and Princess Peach, too,
Plus Wario, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong as well,
There's cute Kirby, courageous Link, and Pikachu,
And King Bowser from the fiery depths of Hell!
Princess Zelda and Samus Aran come from afar,
Her Power  and Zero Suits intact,
And Fox, Pit, Sonic, Pikmin & Olimar,
Plus many more to fill the pack.
A union like this may be an unlikely one,
But as long as they're here, let's all have fun!

The Golden Warriors Pt 1 Fixed
The Golden Warriors
Chapter 1: The Gathering
Deep in outer space, there was a small, star-shaped planet known as Pop Star. On that planet, there was a happy, peaceful place known as Dream Land. This land was ruled by the selfish King Dedede, who had little care for the citizens of Dream Land. However, for the most part, the people simply ignored his rulings and carried on with their lives. Even if King Dedede did do something cruel, such as stealing the land's food supply, the people could always rely on Kirby, a pure-hearted, child-like resident of Dream Land to set the King straight! One day, Kirby was relaxing in the Green Greens, looking at the clouds pass by, when his good friend, Gooey, came up to him.
Gooey: Kirby, we're going on a picnic. Do you want to come with us?
Kirby nodded, excited by the idea of going on a picnic. He can already taste the wonderful treats he will have when he gets there. Gooey turned around and headed off for the picnic, and Kirby began to follow, until

So, if anyone's curious, I'm feeling better now, but man...  I was in some major depression there.  It might take me a while before I can watch any Robin Williams-relates stuff without breaking down...  But I'll get better with time.

Anyway, so a while back, Nickelodeon announced their intentions of making a new Spongebob Squarepants movie.  My reaction was pretty much the same as everyone else's at the time, that of surprise, exasperation, and apathy.  It's pretty much common knowledge that Spongebob hasn't been any good since the first movie (and when the creator left the show), though at the time, I had no idea how horrible the show had gotten...  After that, this news kind of faded from memory, or at least my memory, until the first trailer came out...  a few weeks ago; I procrastinated on talking about this sorry about that.  The movie will be called "The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water"...  It's almost like the titles both implying that the previous Spongebob Squarepants movie never happened, while also denoting it as a sequel by giving it a subtitle.  Anyway, the trailer itself:

THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE: SPONGE OUT OF WATER | Official Teaser Trailer | UK | Paramount

So it appears to be like one of those "live action movies based on classic cartoons"-type movies... I would make fun or groan about that, or point out how low modern Spongebob has gotten to the point that I feel like there's no way this movie can redeem all the shit that's come after the first movie, or be nitpicky and point out that the characters are in 3D while in the live action world whereas in the first movie, Spongebob and Patrick were still traditionally animated while in the life action world (and also that Sandy is helping Spongebob and the others getting the "hairy porpoise" back in the water when really she could have just told them it was a human)...

...But I'll be honest, I'm kind of liking the look of this. It feels appropriately funny, and it has a good plot worthy of a movie. I'm actually a bit intrigued... Particularly in that Plankton is frequently seen with them, it makes me wonder if he intends to work together with them or if he has his own evil scheme...

I just want to say, the animation on the 3D character models is amazing!  It it literally looks and feels like their 2D counterparts, but in 3D.  It's hard to explain, but it just looks really good.  There's a part of me that's nagging me about how there should be more of the traditional animation, and also the 2D segments aren't up to snub when compared to the original movie, but I hushed it, because the traditionally animated segments are fine, and the 3D parts looked so good I just didn't care.

I actually looked into this more, and found out that the writers for this movie are Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, who wrote the Kung Fu Panda movies AND Monsters vs. Aliens!  ...They also, apparently, wrote the two live action Alvin and the Chipmunks sequels, but I guess they can't always be golden.  But I still count this as a good thing, because they got actual WRITERS to write this movie, and not whatever lazy, talentless hacks they got to put together an average Spongebob episode, which basically amounts to nothing much happening and really weak jokes.

I should also point out that while Paul Tibbitt, the current showrunner of Spongebob Squarepants (who also wrote for the show originally), is directing and also helped come up with the story, the story mostly came from Spongebob's creator, Stephen Hillenburg!  And really, the story is not that bad, it feels appropriate for a movie based on Spongebob: an evil pirate plans to destroy Spongebob's world (for whatever reason) and Spongebob and his friends have to stop him...  and they eventually become superheroes.  It's not THAT much of a far-cry from the original movie, in which Plankton steals King Neptune's crown and Spongebob and Patrick have to work together to get it back, all while being obsessed over becoming "men".

The gags...  are funny, at least to me.  Even if you don't find them funny, admit it, Spongebob has ALWAYS had this level of humor, even back in the glory days.  Hell, I don't think the show's been THIS funny since those days...  Not to mention, the characters are all in-character, as opposed to either perversions of their character archetypes or just pieces moving through the plot of a story with no depth to them whatsoever.  Like, I'm seriously so relieved to see Patrick acting like the lovable doofus he used to be, rather then the cruel, malicious smartass whose stupidity is mostly a facade because he's such an uncaring, unfeeling douche.

Like, wow, for the first time in what seems like forever, I'm actually excited and happy about something Spongebob-related that's new! Will it save Spongebob? Hell no, at this point it would take a literal miracle (and also firing all the writers currently working on the show) to save Spongebob by this point, but as for this movie? Yeah, color me excited.

Hey, PaperMatt202! I just wanted to ask you for a favor. You see, I'm trying to determine what everyone's favorite part about season five of MLP was. I just posted ten pictures that include ten categories involving different aspects of the season. For example, there's Best New Character, Best Song, Best Episode, etc. I just need some help getting more votes for those categories. All you have to do is comment which nominee in which category you want to see win. For example, if the nominees for Best New Character were Countess Coloratura, Marble Pie, Moon Dancer, Starlight Glimmer, and Tree Hugger, and you wanted Marble Pie to win, you would comment here name and that would count as a vote. If you could encourage some of you watchers to visit my photos and vote, and perhaps you could vote as well, that would be awesome! I'll give you the link to the photos, just let me know if you're willing to help me out. Thanks!
