Scott Pilgrim vs The World Review

Posted by Cameron On January 10, 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Scott Pilgrim vs. The WorldHey everyone! I’m back! I’m sorry that I didn’t have a review for you last week, but I decided to take a break for the week for Christmas. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a great movie. The visual effects are appealing to many different audiences, but it is mainly focused on those who grew up with video games. The visuals make the movie feel like a trip back to the 80’s and early 90’s with the humor of the present time. The humor is pretty funny, but it’s more about laughing at Scott’s awkwardness.

The cast does an amazing job as their roles. Michael Cera plays as Scott Pilgrim, Mark Webber as Steven Stills, Alison Pill as Kim Pine, Johnny Simmons as Young Neil, Ellen Wong as Knives Chau, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers, and Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells. Also, Chris Evans makes an appearance as one of Ramona’s Seven Evil Exes. Each of the actors does an excellent job portraying their roles. Michael usually plays timid characters so this is a , and Kieran Culkin plays Wallace Wells, Scott’s gay, sarcastic, and casually drunk roommate excellently.

The music in the movie is catchy, and awesome! I actually know how to play one of the songs. However, the reason that I did not give it a perfect score, is because of the fact that it’s not actual jokes, it’s just the way some of the lines are given and acted out that makes it funny. I understand that that’s an odd reason, but I feel like if a few of the lines were actual jokes, and were acted out or said in the same way, I’d enjoy the humor a lot more. So, I’d say that if you’re into visually appealing movies with awesome fight scenes, great music, and excellent acting, then this is a movie that you need to watch immediately. With these factors, plus the addition of the pee bar when Scott uses the bathroom, I’m giving Scott Pilgrim vs. The World 4 Lukes.scott3

Attack on Titan review

Posted by Cameron On December 20, 2014 ADD COMMENTS

titan-1Hey everyone! Cameron here, with another anime review for you all. I’m especially excited about this review, because this was originally going to be my first review for the website. However, due to the fact that I had not finished it yet, I was not able to review it, haha! Anyways, let’s get on to the review.

Attack on Titan is my second favorite anime of all time. It has the perfect amount of tragedy, action, and suspense. The characters all have a well-written backstory and script, and are very well-developed. Combine that with excellent English and Japanese voice acting, great music, and the most bada$$ theme songs of any anime I have ever watched, and you make for one ultimate anime series.
