Following that legacy, Creed II is more spectacular and less smart than the first Creed, but musics are amazing.
If you want to use the Drago legacy and characters for a movie, you have to do it that way.
Dark is like a German version of Twin Peaks. Visually beautiful with great musics. It may take a couple of episodes to start enjoying the mythology of the show, but keep watching, you'll like the journey.
I started to watch for Gillian Anderson, and now I'm watching for all the other great cast and crew.
A good pilote, and other episodes are better.
"Agent Reyes, its John Doggett. Sorry about the hour, but I need your help"
Yep, that's Agent Doggett.
The mastering system is very nice and motivates the player to level multiple jobs. The game is hard, in a very good way, with very difficult battle. It also has very epic moments, like Galuf VS Xdeath, which is absolutely stunning. That's also the beginning of the fanbase of Gilgamesh and his incredible theme "Clash/battle on a big bridge" by a strong Nobuo Uematsu. I will always remember that very moment where I was running on the bridge, chaining battles on this music.
An unforgettable moment.
A brilliant actor in the making.
That said, "Milou en mai" is a very sweet movie with some fun moments.
I stil know the film by heart.
The vision of the characters seems correct and quite mastered.
That fanfic was very enjoyable. I like the idea and the vocabulary.
In another dimension, maybe Vince Gilligan or Darin Morgan wrote an episode about Queequeg.
This year, for Halloween, I chose to rewatch The Curse of Frank Black from MillenniuM classic 1013 production.
I haven't seen it for years and yet, it's still an outstanding work. Lance Henriksen is great, Dean Winters, the amazing and timeless Ryan O'Reily in Oz is, well, amazing of course, and Ralph Hemecker delivered a nice directing of a perfect script by Glen Morgan and Jim Wong.
What else ? All the good stuff of the 1013 is in it. 1997 ? What an awesome creative year.
Oh, Michael McKean in The Good Place, and on the role of the famous Doug Forcett ?! As a x-phile and a 1013 fan, I'm perfectly fine with it.
A good episode.
Oh, and Eleanor and the lizard are both very cute. The way Kristen Bell keep playing while the lizard rides on his head proves how good she is.
The use of the official song "Bloody Tears" from the original Castlevania game-series is simply gorgeous. Storyboard and choregraphy are amazing, everything just works.
Congratulations to the staff.
Like the previous season, the animation during dialogue scenes lacks of finesse but it is always with great pleasure that we follow a real 2D animation instead of 3D or cel-shading.
I wasn't expecting that. I mean, Mike Flanagan is a good director, but that good ? I didn't see that coming.
That was insane. In a good way. It was like Triangle from The X-Files all over again, with long takes serving scenes behind closed doors.
Actors are great, horror is mastering. I especially love the change of position of the statues out of camera.
I was blown away by that outstanding work.
At last, we follow the character of Eleanor Vance, alias Nell, and we learn some truth about the bent neck lady.
The episode succeded to offer some revelations while keeping the mystery intact between the supernatural and the mental illnees. The sleep paralysis scenes are very good and real.
A very good episode.
It's interesting to have the point of view of twin Luke now. I like the structure of the show.
Each character is facing the truth. Chidi has a mental breackdown when Eleanor simply understood why making people happy is a reward in itself.
It feels right.
The character of Theodora Crain is very interesting and young Luke is excellent too. Can't wait to see a point of view episode about him. Probably the next episode because it seems each episode is about a child, from the oldest to the youngest.
That said, regular scenes are good.
Michiel Huisman was great and relevant in Treme, I'm happy to be able to have more Michiel on television. Others starring are good too, and children well chosen.
We also have Annabeth Gish as a very good guest starring.
The photography is good and has inspiration.
A good start.
I'm still not sure about the season, I think you can deal with the difficult and strange grief of Jimmy with less episodes. That was great, that was smart, but it takes maybe too many episodes.
That said, this episode was powerful, leading by great actors and a good directing.
Season 5 has to be the last one. And it needs to be great, for the sake of the whole series.
I have the same feeling than all the other episodes of the second part of the season. But it smells good for the end of the season.
And actors are great, as usual.
As for the previous episode, I like it but it's less powerful each week. Good scenes, good trial, but I'm pretty sure I'll forget everything in a week. I saw a lot of series with lower pace, less events but FAR FAR FAR way more powerful and with more substances than these episodes.
I like Vince Gilligan, especially his work on The X-Files. He made great episodes. He is a very nice creator. I'm not a big fan of him, but I respect his work. He can do better.
I like every single scenes, especially the very brilliant first scene.
But I'm not sure I like the whole thing. It's hard to see the point.
I think we could have the same result with less episodes.
FFII : background characters
FFIII : job system
I see a pattern here, and a good one.
So, Final Fantasy IV is logically a background characters game. Heroes have names and stories and it is a very good improvement of FFII.
The evolution of the hero, Cecil Harvey, is very interesting and the others characters work very well too. For example, Kain is a fantastic character and a great evolution of the Dragoon Ricaro/Richard from FFII. Yoshikata Amano made an amazing work on the logo and characters.
The system of Final Fantasy IV is very simple. Characters are getting experience points and levels and your team is constantly evolving, depending on the storyline. To compensate that simple system, FFIV added one more playable character on the team. 5 instead of 4 on previous titles and I really enjoyed that.
Finally, the place of the final boss is very creative and original.
FFIV is an incredible game and a superb Final Fantasy.
In my opinion, The Snowplow is an average episode. It feels like characters become parody of themself sometimes. The rich is richer, the poor is poorer, the dumb is dumber...
That said, I still enjoying how the story is constantly changing. There is no stagnation in The Good Place and I would like to congratulate the authors for that.
Not as good as the 2 parts season premiere episode, but still enjoyable with a more active Janet and a boring (in a good way) Trevor, well portrayed, as usual, by Adam Scott.
That opposition was very smart and very well crafted.
A good episode.
This season starts with a very good season premiere.
Fun and smart, with golden moments for the character of Michael, nicely portrayed by a very motivated Ted Danson. Also, the cliff-hanger is very enjoyable.
Also, GLOW has a very interesting cast. Very good actresses.
This episode is focusing on Jimmy, which is cool, and the season continues on the same pace. I still like it but I hope we'll see "Saul" before the end of whole series.
This episode is about communication. Communication with language, communication with gesture, communication with guns... things we want to say, things we say without meaning to... Talk is a very human episode, with an amazingly good Jonathan Banks. As the judge says, we're not in a movie.
And, at the center of all these languages stands Jimmy, following the very long and slowly path to the dark side. Unable to bear time with himself, he has to create anything to stay busy.
A good episode with some bad technical issues.
Every single minute is well use in this episode. The first scene is thrilling, the robbery scene is funny, the last scene is disturbing... all that in only one episode.
Very good job.
The famous movies Drag Slave theme was created for this soundtrack and it will be use/re-orchestrate for all the following movies. A perfect theme for Lina Inverse.
A stunning OST.
The Land Before Time popped in Theater in France. Like every kids, I was a huge dinosaurs fan (still do) and my mother takes me to the cinema. What can I say ? It was a powerful and magic day. Legendary Don Bluth and great writers, Judy Freudberg, David Kirschner and Tony Geiss offer me a stunning 1 hour eternal gift.
But the best part of that day was the music of James Horner. Probably one of the best Soundtrack of all time. That's simple, everyone knows The Land Before Time soundtracks, especially Whispering Winds, even without knowing the movie. An eternal masterpiece.
Rest in peace James Horner, you made my childhood great. And thank you mother.
Well, it makes me laugh, especially the walrus moment. That's funny and the show does not claim to be more than that, so I'm good.
After an innovating second game, Final Fantasy III gets back the famous Job System from the first FF with more functionalities.
It is now possible to switch jobs during the adventure and you can change your party depending on your needs. A great idea and another step to improve that amazing system BUT it remains a little problem : it does not exist any connection between jobs yet. Players will have to wait FFV or FFXI to enjoy more sharing between jobs with the concept of mastering or subjob.
Anyway, FFIII is part of the evolution of the system but... I.... still prefer the first FF than the third one. How is that possible to have a better rating on a game with less functionalities ? Well, FFI was very innovating and I love the occidental RPG/D&D atmosphere. FFIII is an evolution but not an innovation.
It's still an excellent game.
I think Slayers Gorgeous is the best Slayers movie. It is a perfect synthesis of the 3 others Lina and Naga movies.
The animation is great, following a smart and innovating storyboard. Photos and directing are stunning. The Drag Slave scene, with Lina Inverse on the roof of the church, with so many shades of red, is simply stunning. And the music... simply, in my opinion, the best version of the Drag Slave theme ever.
The plot is simple but not simplistic and gags works very well. This movie always makes me laugh and that's something.
Aside from the novels, the main problem with the Slayers franchise is the lack of ambition and (re)inventing. That's insane how the Slayers main novels are ambitious and pioneers when adaptations aren't taking any risks and doing things always the same way. Slayers Great is just another Lina and Naga movie like Return : funny but too long. Way too long.
The first part of the film is very good. Background, characters... everything works. Galev is the most successful character ot this part and creates tons of very funny moments.
That said, the second part of the film with the too long chase is kinda boring.
A beautiful too long funny film.
The first Slayers movie is the only one who tries to deliver a solid story. It was a laudable attempt but it ends on a failure. The first part of the movie is long. Too long. Then when big stuff happens... it's too fast. It seems the staff ran out of time and cut 5 or 10 minutes of the initial story board, resuling on a awkward storytelling.
That's sad because the movie is very beautiful. Nice colors and directing, amazing songs and musics, and Megumi Hayashibara and Maria Kawamura are incredlibly talented.
A good movie that fails to be a masterpiece.
That wasn't bad. The chara design is cool and the animation is very proper. Ok, there are a lot of 3D on monuments, but it's still better than full 3D shit.
Colors are nice, but maybe too bright. About the story, I enjoyed the characters and the adventure, but it starts to be a little boring at the end of the episode. Maybe 36 minutes is too long.
I think expectations were too high because the show was created by Matt Groening. Anyway, the pilot of Disenchantment is not a masterpiece but has a lot of good ideas in it.
As usual, I prefer the pace of Better Call Saul than the original Breaking Bad one. We are in a classic Gilligan mature style and it works fine for me.
The scene with Kim and Howard is very relevant. Loved the acting.
Another good episode. More than a 5 but less than a 6 for me. I'll put a 6 because it's a spin off, and it's very difficult to create a good spin off, so I want to mark the occasion.
