Aquaman 2018 (A Supposed Great Movie)

Sigh, so here we are, again. DC rolling out another superhero movie. Let’s talk about it, shall we?


First and for most let it be known, here and now, that I will not be kind to this movie. Honestly, it was an eh movie. It wasn’t great but certainly not the worst. So if you’re looking for a review that’s going to praise this film than I am sorry but I am not the reviewer for you. I am going to give you my honest opinion on this film, which is that I think it’s overrated.

After Wonder Woman was released I had hope that maybe, just maybe DC could salvage themselves. I was wrong. Justice League, well, we’re just not going to talk about Justice League right now. When I first saw their casting choices for Aquaman I thought, okay maybe this will be decent. Then the teaser trailer dropped and I was like, hey this actually kinda looks good. Then, they shot themselves in the foot. They released their full trailer and you quickly realized they were giving a good bit of story and major action away. And then on top of it all, THEY BROUGHT BACK THE DAMN ORANGE AND GREEN BODYSUIT! Like I get that’s Aquaman’s thing and it’s from the comics and all that but come on, look at it.


LOOK AT IT! It’s so ugly and hideous, surely there was some way to make it look better than this. Jason Momoa is an attractive looking individual but he loses all sexiness in this horrid eye burning outfit.

Okay, moving on from that atrocity, let’s talk about writing. The writing is crap, there were so many action scenes. So many fights, duels, battles, and wars and it’s clear that that is where the studio dumped all of their budget. The writing suffered heavily in this film and was loosely put together to try and keep things afloat. I think it hurt Aquaman quite a bit. Instead of taking it’s time and building the character and us getting to know him like we did with Wonder Woman and Christian Bale’s Batman, they rushed it like they always do. We never got to explore him as a person or Atlantis and it’s people.

The ending is also a major let down, I’m not going to spoil it but it did absolutely nothing and made me feel absolutely nothing. The cut scene was BS too.

The acting was eh also. Momoa is a good actor and so is William Defoe, and they did the best they could with what they had. Amber Heard is okay, she’s not the best but she isn’t a bad actress by any means. The teenage Arthur, Black Manta, Black Manta’s father, and the half brother Atlantian were awful. Like truly awful, cringe-worthy performances.


All in all, I’d describe this film as one of those movies I’d watch on tv if there was absolutely nothing else on and I was bored. I wouldn’t pay for it, wouldn’t actively seek it out, and I certainly wouldn’t go see it again.

Hope this helps or amused you.

Signed, a disappointed fan who’s waiting for Bale Batman and Wonder Woman quality content from DC again.

Undertale 2 Game Chp. 1 Release! (Deltarune)


OKAY LISTEN UP! If you have ever played Undertale or seen someone play Undertale then you guys need to hop on this now! This isn’t going to be a long post about the game, that’ll come later. This is just to let you all know it’s a thing and you should go play it.

Chapter One is the only thing that’s been released now as a Halloween holiday treat, it was literally released yesterday. Toby Fox the creator asked for a period of 24hrs silence on the matter, so respectively I will not be discussing what I experienced in the game, however, I will mention the fact that this game was AMAZING. AND that it was only the first chapter.

Can’t wait to see more of this and see how it all ties in. Here’s the link to it, it’s completely free right now so go play the first chapter!


FanArt Friday! (10/19/18) (Theme: Critical Role)

Hello everyone! Been a while, I know, but I’m here still and I come bearing fanart! I’m splitting it into three categories: Vox Machina, The Mighty Nein, and I’m going to include a section further down that involves spoilers but it will have a large warning before it in case you don’t want to ruin it for yourself. I will more than likely make more Critical Role fanart posts in the future, this is just such a good show. Enjoy!

That was a lot, but there were just SO many options! I will definitely be making more fanart Critical Role posts. Hope you all enjoyed this. Have a great day!


Critical Role (A new(ish) obsession)


So, if you remember I started playing D&D a few months ago right? Well, to get a better understanding I started watching Critical Role per a friend’s suggestion. I started with Campaign 2 per that same friend’s suggestion. That was a few months ago and I am now deeply invested.

For those of you who don’t know or I have heard of it but never knew what it was, it’s a show “where a bunch of nerdy-ass voice actors sit around and play Dungeons & Dragons” Now for some of you that may not be your cup of tea but if you enjoy narrative stories or RPG style games then you will enjoy this. The stories are phenomenal and really well made. And the choices that the characters make really affect the outcome of the story and the events that follow.

So there is a lot of episodes in campaign one and they start out playing at a higher level as well. So if you want to start from the beginning of a level one game I’d start with campaign two (link for this first episode can be found right here). So let’s meet the cast, shall we?

Top left to the bottom right: Sam Riegel (Nott the Brave), Taliesin Jaffe (Mollymauk) Marisha Ray (Beauregard), Matt Mercer (DM), Liam O’Brien (Caleb Widogast), Laura Bailey (Jester), Ashley Johnson (Yasha), Travis Willingham (Fjord)


Now you may not recognize their faces but they voice some of your favourite animes, cartoons, and video games. This group meets and airs, every Thursday 7PM Pacific Standard Time and 10PM Eastern Standard Time. You can find them on Twitch, Alpha, VRV for the VOD, and Youtube. Thursday’s episode is uploaded to Youtube every Monday.

Campaign 2 is about a motley group of ragtag individuals coming together and fighting bad guys, facing impossible tasks, and going on wild adventures. The players explore the world the DM has built and meet characters in this world. Everything is pretty much on the spot improv because this is an RPG game. The actors come up with their own backstories for their characters though and slowly, bits and pieces come to light during the episodes. Their backstory helps shape how they play the game.

Back: DM, Left to Right: Mollymauk, Beauregard, Fjord, Caleb and his cat Frumpkin, Nott the Brave, Jester, Yasha.

This group of people bring these characters and world to life and make it such a wonderful and beautiful piece of art that they give us the privilege to be a part of. They do a lot of charity work to which I personally think is an amazing thing. You can find a list of all of their personal charities they’re involved in here on their fact page, but the big one that the whole group back is 826LA which is a non-profit writing and tutoring organization which helps a lot of kids and they even host D&D campaigns for the kids and teach them how to run a campaign and play.

The show is sponsored by D&D Beyond which is a really cool tool to build character sheets and keep track of all of your stuff, and if you’re like me and really bad at math, it does the math for you when you level up. I bring this up because there is a FANTASTIC animation that D&D Beyond did for this campaign and I geek out every time I watch it so I wanted an excuse to share it. If you were on the fence before about watching this then maybe this will help you.

You can’t tell me that wasn’t cool.

A Fantasy realm with dragons, monsters, magic, and all sorts of mischief and quests to be found. What more could you want? I binged this second campaign and got caught up so I could start watching it live and let me tell you it is a wild ride from start to finish. You won’t be bored I promise.

Here’s a link to their website, go check them out!

Studio Ghibli Fest 2018


Hey guys! I know it’s been a while, my apologies, but I thought you all should know about this!

Fathom Events has been putting this Studio Ghibli Fest on and it is GREAT. I went to it over the summer and then a few months ago they brought it back! They play one every month, towards the end usually. They’ve even expanded the number of participating theatres. (I’ll provide a link for this fathom event at the bottom). You can still catch some of the titles like Princess Mononoke which is this weekend 7/22 (Dub), 7/23 (Sub), and 7/25(Dub). Sunday’s showings are dubbed, Monday’s are subbed, and Wednesday’s are dubbed. There is a difference narrative wise between dub and sub, I took my mother to see dubbed Proco Rosso and my friend to see the sub version and it changed the story quite a bit. Either is great but I suggest seeing both if you can!

Ponyo, The Cat Returns, Porco Rosso, and Pom Poko have already passed but you can still make Princess Mononoke (July), Grave of the Fireflies (August), My Neighbor Totoro 30th Anniversary (September/October), Spirited Away (October), Castle in the Sky (November).

If you can’t make these showings, or the one you wanted to see has already passed, don’t worry. I’m sure they will keep doing these showings because the last round had Totoro, Spirited Away, and Castle in the Sky as well. So, they all cycle back through I think.

Tickets are $12.50 across the board for all ages (with whatever convenience fee if you purchase tickets online. Tip: If you have like an AMC card it will wave your online ticketing fee). For the big name ones like Spirited Away, Totoro, Castle in the Sky I would buy your tickets ahead of time. When I went and saw those three and Howl’s Moving Castle last summer we purchased tickets online and had to change locations once because the other theatres were sold out.

I’ve been taking my mother to all of these ever since last summer and it’s become a great mother/daughter thing we do every month. She’s never seen Studio Ghibli or anime before until I started taking her to these so she’s gotten to know my world more and it’s been a lot of fun for the both of us!

So grab a friend or family member, or hey, go by yourself if you’d be more comfortable and go check out this amazing event!

You can find all the showings here at Fathom Events GKids page. Have a great day guys!

Tattoo Thursday (Harry Potter)

Hello everyone, I thought Tattoo Thursday needed to come back and since I’ve been introducing my mum to Harry Potter and reading the books myself I thought this Tattoo Thursday should be dedicated to Harry Potter. Enjoy!















Hope you all enjoyed this post, if you couldn’t tell, I love the Marauders and I am indeed a Slytherin. I promise the next time I do a harry potter tattoo post (and there will be another time) I will include things from the other houses as well.

Have a great day!

What Have I Done… (Delving Into the World of Dungeons & Dragons)


Hello everyone, been a while, but I thought I would kick things off again with my journey into the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Now, you should know up front that I have only been playing Dungeons and Dragons for a few weeks now. I am totally new to this. So, forgive me if I don’t know all the terminologies yet and let me know if I got anything wrong.

I always wanted to try and play Dungeons & Dragons but I never really had anyone to play with. And while I may be an extreme extrovert, the thought of going to a random gathering with complete strangers who have probably been playing together for years was incredibly daunting. It wasn’t until my friend Emily had asked if I would be interested in going with her to a gathering at a local tabletop store. She had only played a few times and was still new to it as well so I thought, “sure, why not.”


So fast forward to our first game. We meet once a week on Wednesdays and play Adventures League. I have been told there are more leagues but this one is a good one for beginners and people who just want to have fun and have a good time. Now everyone builds a character before they show up and has a miniature (a little figure of your character.) You have a Character Sheet where you can create whatever you want. You can also create as many characters as you want but you can only use one character in a campaign. 636287076637981942.pngMy first character was a Tiefling fighter. “Tieflings are derived from human bloodlines, and in the broadest possible sense, they still look human. However, their infernal heritage has left a clear imprint on their appearance.” (D&D Player’s Handbook, 5th Edition) She’s purple like the one in the picture here and used to be a gladiator. Her name is Aven. Ther are a multitude of races to pick from like human, elves, dwarves, gnomes, orcs, dragonbornes and so on. You just have to find which one suits you best.

Being a Fighter means that I’m well armoured, my character wears chainmail and carries a shield as well as a longsword and a crossbow. This means I am usually near the front of our party during battles and when exploring dangerous places. I can take hits better and I do more damage as well. Cut three goblins in half my first night, I was quite proud of myself for a first timer. There are tons of other classes to choose from though like Ranger, Monk, Sorcerer and whatnot. There’s also alignments: Lawful good, neutral good, chaotic good, lawful neutral, true neutral, chaotic neutral, lawful evil, neutral evil, chaotic evil. You’ve all seen the memes (I’ll even show you a Harry Potter one as an example), and now you know where they’ve come from. Your alignment is your moral compass and guides your actions and justifies them throughout the game. So if you’re lawful good you are not about to go mug a man who took your healing potion even though your friend is sick. While if you’re chaotic good you will do it because you know your friend needs it and technically what he did was bad so you’re okay with beating him up to get it back.



Miniatures are little figurine pieces that represent your character. Granted, this is a Tiefling Sorcerer, not a Fighter, but I can’t find a fighter one.73202-TieflingSorcerer They start off like the figure on the left, unpainted and plain. Then you paint the figure however you like, like the one on the right. Now, I know there are different types of material for the figures and different types of paint. When I make my own, I’m borrowing one off of someone right now, I will make a post about it. You use this as like a chess piece almost. It represents your character in the story.

There are loads of different classes, personalities and backgrounds, equipment, and races to pick from when creating your own character so have fun with it, but also try to make your character cohesive. You can pick whatever you want but you want your character to be able to be cohesive with the rest of your party. D&D isn’t just about you, you’re not the sole player in this game. You play with a party and you should bring a character that has something to offer to the party.


D&D is more than just a game, it’s a story. There is a person who heads up the game called the DM (Dungeon Master), and it is the DM’s job to bring the quest to the table. The DM creates a quest with challenges and obstacles along the way and a multitude of different paths for the game to go down depending on how the players play and the roll of the dice. What you say, do, and roll all affect the outcome of the game. And yes you heard right, roll of the dice is what I said.

20171126_135115x.jpgD&D uses a set of seven die. Now occasionally you will need two of one of the dice but for starters, you only need one set. So, the dice, the number corresponds to how many faces are on the dice so a D20 means that that dice has 20 faces on it: D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, and D20. A standard set also includes a second D10 that is used for percentile rolls. Players generally like to have multiples of some die in so they can roll, for example, 3 D20 at once instead of rolling 1 D20 three times. Dice are used for a multitude of things in this game including but not limited to weapons damage, attacks, spells, checks, and how many health points you are allowed back.  The D20 is used the most and is usually used to see if you fail or succeed in your action, like fighting (hit or miss), perception checks and so on. Depending on what action you are doing you’ll add or subtract a number to what you rolled based on if you are proficient in that skill or not. So say I roll for a perception check and get a 15, I check my sheet and see that I have a +2 perception, so I would add 2 to the 15 and say I have a 17 for perception and if the DM deems that enough you get your perception check. The same rule applies when you have a negative number. 20’s are the highest number you can get and that is a guaranteed yes to anything you do, 1’s are what are called critical fail where you are failing no matter what. There is no saving yourself when you roll a 1.
Titanium-Dragons-Breath-Polyhedral-Set-1There are so many different kinds of dice out there to choose from and they are all really cool. From metal to sparkly, glow in the dark, multicoloured, solid coloured, elaborate designs, simplistic ones. There are just so many out there and they all range in different prices. But I have no doubt you can find some cool ones for a cheap price.


Now when we first started, we played with people we didn’t know, but it was a lot of fun. Everyone was easy going and made it a great time. It’s a lot to take in, but when you have a good group that helps you learn you’ll have a blast. At the beginning of every new game, you introduce yourself, but not you the player. No, you introduce your character. Because in this game, you are the character. D&D is roleplaying but you can be as into it or as basic as you want. I know for me, I started out pretty basic but the more into it I get the better I get at Roleplaying my character. Some games are one-shots, they last one night and that’s it. Others can last a few days, and I’ve been told some last a few months. But once you commit to one that’s it, you’re stuck with that group for that campaign. And you have to show because you all started together and you can’t just abandon your party in the middle of a quest. Like I said before, every player brings some unique aspect and skill to the game and you use that to further your party along. The games can be rather long, I know when we meet up it goes about 3 or 4 hours with a break in the middle.

That was a lot to take in I know, trust me it was a struggle my first game as well, but the more you do it and the more you get into it, the better you’ll get. If you’re interested in watching some I would highly recommend watching Critical Role, they’re great fun and you can see a bit about what it’s like.

I hope this was helpful for some people and maybe entertaining for others. If you’re interested to hear more about D&D or want me to tell you about what happens in our campaigns I’d be happy to post about it, or if you want me to post about other tabletop games or board games then let me know.

Anyways, have a lovely day everyone!
