Tournament of Hotties: Disney Princesses (Round 1, Part 2)

Welcome back. We’ve got 6 more animated beauties to judge, so let’s get right to it. Check out part 1 if you missed it!

The first two women are from movies I haven’t seen since the year they came out, so that was like 2 decades ago, so I don’t remember anything about them, so I will have to judge by the pictures.

Pocahontas VS Mulan

First off is the Native American Pocahontas. She’s got a tall, slender body that looks to be nothing but muscle, in a hot way. Her long, flowing hair does nothing but add to her allure.

And the whole one strap thing on her hide dress? Very sexy.

pocahontas_5_e941b576

See? And we’d all like to get her to make that face. If you picture the background a bedspread instead of a purple sky, this picture becomes 100x more erotic.

Next is Mulan. I think she is a princess of some sorts, but unfortunately not a very attractive one. This might be because she spends much of the movie impersonating a man, so let’s just take a look at her womanly side.

Turns out she’s very beautiful, but in more of a cute kind of way. She’s someone you could see yourself settling down with. Props to Mushu, though, he’s copping a feel with his feet while distracting Mulan by staring longingly into her eyes and tickling her chin. Man…what a pro…

 

Pocahontas is far more sexy, however, which is what this tournament is all about. Now if Mulan had appeared in the movie like this, she might have had a chance.

Tiana VS Rapunzel

Let’s start by talking about the beauty from New Orleans, Tiana. On top of being exceptionally beautiful, she cooks and cleans like no other, and apparently can make some truly spectacular gumbo. In the Princess and the Frog, she shows off a frog fetish and then is married into royalty. You know, normal stuff. While not good looking as a frog, there is no denying her amazing looks as a human.

Rapunzel is a princess kidnapped as a baby as seen in Tangled. Despite never leaving her tower, she grows up into an extremely hot blond and though her hair is like 30 feet long, it is just as stunning as she is. She is also adorable in her looks, but even more so in her personality. Her adventurous spirit mixed with her kind and innocent personality really make you gush. She is a master of hot and cute, which is always big points. The woman who kidnapped her and posed as her mother, for an older gal, isn’t bad either.

I wouldn’t mind getting in on some of that. The picture on the right really shows off Rapunzel’s radiance…

Anyway, while both of these princesses are gorgeous, it’s Rapunzel’s charming allure that wins the round…and her overcoming hotness of course.

Next up are a couple of red heads!

Merida VS Anna

I will be blunt, Merida, apart from being brave and all that, doesn’t have much going for her…like at all. Though, for some reason the actress who plays her in the TV series Once Upon a Time makes the character sexy, strong and beautiful. The more I watched her, the more I noticed how beautiful she is.

Though since this is not what she looked like in the movie, this is entirely irrelevant.

Anna isn’t all that hot either, though she is just a little bit. And standing up there next to Merida, her looks really shine through. She is definitely attractive, which is more than can be said about Merida.

That’s it for part 2! Look for the final part of Round 1 coming soon!

Tournament Of Hotties: Disney Princesses (Round 1, Part 1)

I’m back with another tournament of gorgeous women, but this time we’re gonna feed our fictional fantasies. These princesses might be popular for being royalty and starring in big movies and the like, but they are also hot, and damn it, we want to know who the hottest of the hot are.

I am going to be going all out and using all sorts of Disney females of royal caliber, even a few I have never heard of before. Note that no matter what we see on these pages, I will be judging them on how they look in their respective movies.

So let’s get to it!!

Snow White VS Cinderella

Our oldest Disney princess is Snow White, but she doesn’t look a day over 20. She also isn’t much in the looks department at all. Her dress is unflattering, she’s kind of a ditz, and honestly, there isn’t anything to gawk at. But according to the Magic Mirror, she is the most beautiful woman in all the lands. Well, if that is true, then I’d hate to see the other women in whatever lands she is from.cinderella_eu_princess_pi_storybook_r_8e1944df

Cinderella, on the other hand, is a hot blond, though she doesn’t wear anything sexy, unless you are into rags.

She is obviously a very beautiful woman with a bangin’ bod. And as a bonus, she cooks, cleans and can talk to animals, so who wouldn’t want that in a woman?

So the winner here is obvious, but I would like to share with you a picture I have located that someone drew that does in fact, make Snow White look quite sexy.

Snow White Bra and skirt

Too bad you don’t shape up like that in the movie.

Next up is a heavy sleeper and an avid swimmer!

Aurora VS Ariel

Aurora is an attractive blond, with her wild hair, petite body and shy nature, she’s enough to make any guy chase after her. The title of her movie even calls her hot…sort of. Heck, in Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, one of the characters you play as wants to bang the sleeping broad.

 

sleeping-beauty-disneyscreencaps-com-1992
I mean, look at that look. You couldn’t say no to that. She’s a sly fox, she is.

 

Sleeping-beauty-disneyscreencaps.com-4287
And I’m sure you can figure out something to do with her in this picture.

 

And next we have the gorgeous little mermaid, princess of the seas, Ariel! Sure, she’s half marlin, but that doesn’t mean her human half isn’t one of the hottest sights on the seven seas!

Any woman, half a fish or not, that wears a bra made out of sea shells as their everyday clothing, showing off their perfect body, is a welcome sight to me.

ariel wave
The waves here are an accurate portrayal of an inevitable explosion that would occur from a dripping wet, near naked woman with her mouth wide open, kneeling down on a rock and looking at you.

And when that long red hair is floating around underwater, phew, it gets pretty bubbly, if you know what I mean.

And with two beautiful women this time around, who to vote for?

Ariel takes the trout. Aurora has a great body no doubt, but she doesn’t flaunt it. Ariel has no shame. She shows us what she’s got, and we like.

Next up are two more amazingly drawn hotties.

Belle VS Jasmine

Here we have a gorgeous French bookworm facing off against a beautiful Arabian princess.

Belle is not born a princess, but is married into it the role as implied in Beauty and the Beast. Not only does Belle score a 10 out of 10 in both the looks and brains department, but also in personality. She is a kind and gentle, unbelievably caring woman, but also can be fierce and fearless. She must also be one kinky lady, because she wants Beast’s bulge something awful. They could really get into some crazy business behind those big bedroom doors. And we can’t blame Beast either. Belle is one sexy woman.

beauty_and_the_beast_2010_by_j_scott_campbell-d2z2pqg

While Belle is pretty much perfect, Jasmine will not stand idly by and let her be overrun.

jasmine 2

 

The Aladdin babe is simply gorgeous. That dark skin, those big brown eyes and big lips,  long, bouncy hair, and that amazing figure make your heart melt and some other things grow.

She has a very tough personality. It’s like she’s a big tease. She exposes most of her upper body to you, but her aggressive attitude will keep you at bay unless you are a poor, heroic, homeless guy.

But she can also be very sexy, and she has such a perfect, seductive voice to go with it. Fortunately, she puts on this unbelievably sexy act multiple times in her series. Just everything about her is hot.

Did I mention how amazing her body is?

Little is left to the imagination on her fine hourglass figure, and really it looks like if her pants were real, they’d be totally see through. If you do manage to break down her defenses and score this perfect catch, you wouldn’t have to work hard in the slightest to undress her. One light tug and those pants and top are coming right off. Heck, if the desert she lives in wasn’t so dry, a gust of wind would probably get her naked, which is something we would all like to see.

So both of these contestants are beautiful, inside and out, and also have a darker, sexy and arousing side to them. So who is the better of such attributes?

Look for Part 2 of Round 1 coming soon!

I Never Thought It Was Possible For Me To Dislike a Star Wars Movie (No Spoilers)

I have been proven wrong. What I watched did not feel like a Star Wars movie. Everything felt off and some of the scenes were so far displaced that had it not been for the fact that I spent money to see it, I would have walked out.

It’s like the whole plot just did whatever it wanted, making sure it did the most contradicting and pointless maneuvers it possibly could, making it barely connected with Episode 7, not to mention the other 6.

I have never felt so dissatisfied with something and this is the only movie I can recall actually getting angry watching.

The whole movie isn’t a sham though. It’s got some pretty awesome parts in it, and they are scattered throughout the movie enough to make it tolerable.

But dear God, there was so much pointless garbage going on, and none of it too interesting.

And suddenly Star Wars has become full of humor. Like that humor you’ve been seeing in Marvel movies. It’s funny…sometimes, but it just doesn’t fit.

I actually regret seeing it. I love the Star Wars franchise so very, very much, but this just puts a huge empty hole in my soul.

I knew Star Wars would be terrible without George Lucas, and they are certainly proving so.

I don’t really want to see Episode 9 anymore, but I am going to force myself to just because hopefully it will give all 3 movies a sense of completion, much like the other final movies did in their own trilogies.

 

Series Ranked: Star Wars Lightsaber Duels

I would love to do a series ranked on the actual Star Wars movies, but my opinion of which I like better than others always changes each time I watch them all, so it is kind of impossible to do. So instead, I will rank all the lightsabers duels from worst to best, as that is more clear cut.

#13

Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader

The Empire Strikes Back

Dagobah

lukevaderdag

This isn’t a real fight, but a quick test of Yoda’s that I still don’t understand 25 years later. But I just put it in to be thorough. Their sabers clash twice and it’s over.

#12

Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs Darth Vader

A New Hope

Death Star

star-wars-episode-iv-obi-wan-kenobi-vs-darth-vader

The first duel to ever take place on film between two Jedi. An amazing feat for the 70’s, but it really is rather dull. But given that it is the first, it is excusable. These two have clearly gotten rusty in the past 20 years.

#11

Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs General Grievous

Revenge of the Sith

Utapau

obigriev

This is a different type of fight due to Greivous being more droid than man. This actually benefits him as he is able to do nifty things real people can’t. But this proves no match for actual training it seems, as the whole scene is very short and really shows off Obi-Wan’s skills.

#10

Qui-Gon Jinn Vs Darth Maul

The Phantom Menace

Tatooine

quimaul

This is the first fight made after the original trilogy and it does not disappoint. It is an intense fight that showcases both duelers superb abilities. The only reason it is this low on the list is because it is sadly, very short.

#9

Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader

The Empire Strikes Back

Bespin

lukebespin

The second saber duel in the original trilogy is a vast improvement over the first. They show off force aided combat for the first time, even if it looks a little silly at times, but it is cool to watch nonetheless. I very much like how Vader is toying with Luke at first, but Luke seems to improve the more he fights, thus Vader had to put some effort in to beat him.

#8

Mace Windu and co. Vs Darth Sidious

Revenge of the Sith

Coruscant

Coruscant_Duel

At long last we get to see what Palpatine and Mace can do. It’s pretty awesome, but probably could have been better. Sidious kills 3 people who don’t even fight back…this could have been choreographed much better. Windu then shows off why he is called the most powerful Jedi with a saber, beating him almost easily. Some nice use of the dark side makes this a very important scene as well.

#7

Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader

Return of the Jedi

Death Star

lukevaderjed

This is an intense duel between father and son, aided with great music accompaniment. While not that thrilling of a fight, the emotion behind it makes it very good, as well as Luke calling upon the dark side to win, but not giving into it.

#6

Fin/Rey Vs Kylo Ren

The Force Awakens

Starkiller Base

rey kylo

This is a good fight. It gives us some nice action, though it is not nearly as exciting as the prequel fights. Though since none of the combatants are trained nearly as well as the Jedis of the past, and really, not at all for two of them, it makes sense. Kylo demonstrates his training by easily defeating Fin. Rey demonstrates how ungodly powerful she is by using both light and dark force. A cool use of scenery and lighting really add to the scene too.

#5

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker Followed By Yoda Vs Darth Tyranus

Attack of the Clones

Geonosis

YodaDooku

This is technically two fights, but since they are back to back and against the same Sith Lord, I’m throwing them in as one. When Obi-Wan and Anakin fight him, they get completely destroyed. There’s a cool light trick in the dark that is fun to watch, but otherwise is nothing that spectacular. And then Yoda comes along and fulfills everything I ever dreamed of. He easily overpowers Tyranus’ force powers and then proceeds to do some of the most amazing stunts in history, forcing Tyranus to retreat. Just awesome.

#4

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker

Vs Darth Tyranus

Revenge of the Sith

Invisible Hand

Dookuepisodeiii

This rematch is much more thrilling and shows Anakin favor the dark side considerably.

#3

Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs Darth Maul

The Phantom Menace

Naboo

maul2

This is an amazing fight. Darth Maul, with his double-sided lightsaber pulls off some crazy stunts. The two Jedi do all they can to defend against him and it makes some amazing entertainment. Things really kick up a notch when Obi-Wan takes him alone, showing off what a great Jedi he will eventually become.

#2

Yoda Vs Darth Sidious

Revenge of the Sith

Coruscant

yodapalp

The most powerful Jedi faces off with the most powerful Sith, another thing I wanted to see my whole life, and it did not disappoint. A great saber battle gives way to a match in force powers with fun use of scenery. Yoda seems to be the stronger of the two, but due to some bad luck the Republic falls and all the Jedi die.

#1

Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs Darth Vader

Revenge of the Sith

Mustafar

obiani

Damn…just damn. This is by far and away the most amazing duel ever. Great setting, great choreography, great mood, high stakes. It’s all there. The fact that they use the exact same fighting style showing off how much Vader learned from Obi-Wan is so cool. They are essentially equally matched, but Obi-Wan keeps a “cooler” head and comes out victorious.

 

And there you have it! I hope there will be plenty of more saber battles in the future, which is why I desperately wish they move away from the spin offs taking place between 3 and 4 and do something more with Jedi.

Either way, I absolutely love every Star Wars movie and can’t wait for The Last Jedi!

The Hate for Dragon Ball Super Is Laughable…Nostalgia To Blame?

This is really a continuation off of my last post…Nostalgia Prevents Progression.

I originally was going to make this a quick example, but found I had quite a bit to say about it…so here goes.

 Dragon Ball Super is amazing…to me anyway. It had a bit of a slow start, but has since picked up to be even better than Z.

But I see a lot more hate for the show than love, which is ridiculous. But nostalgia has struck again it seems.

The first thing I noticed about DBS is that it feels just like DBZ, as if the show never stopped. There are some minor differences of course, the way each series was different, but the core is still there- Goku beating the crap out of people. And actually a lot of the humor in the show is reminiscent of Dragon Ball.

But here is where I get a laugh about things. The biggest complaints about Z were inconsistent power levels, slow moving episodes with too much powering up, too much filler and much of the cast being left in the dust due to being unable to keep up with Goku and Vegeta.

In Super, the stories and fights are much more condensed, wrapping things up in a quarter of the time it took for Z. Instead of a villain being the main focus for 3 or more seasons, they keep it down to one. This hurts the story telling a bit, since there is less time to spread it out, but that doesn’t mean the stories are bad. The Black Saga had a great story and was well told.

So in other words, the show moves much faster and it feels like a lot more has happened in it, despite being like half as long as Z. And there are no lengthy power ups that I can recall. Though, really, there weren’t many in Z either if I’m being honest. It’s more building anticipation than anything.

People complain that there is too much talking during fights in Super. My response to this…Have you ever watched any of the other Dragon Ball series. This one is by far the least guilty, except for maybe Dragon Ball. Goku’s fight with Frieza stands out to me the most. I am pretty sure Bulma and King Kai have more air time during the fight than the two fighting.

 

Is this annoying? Usually, but from a production stand point, this is all understandable. It is a lot of time and effort to just make people fight for an entire episode and it could become rather dull and expensive, though it is hard to see how on the former. But most people don’t realize this. And the DB series usually take these moments to explain what’s going on, or else show the effects the battles are having elsewhere. So, to me, this isn’t really all that big of an issue.

Now for filler. Super does have filler, though not nearly as much as Z. And the filler is actually quite good, not to say that some of Z’s wasn’t, though most of it was awful and boring. In Super, the filler usually consists of quite a bit of action and/or comedy.

And really, filler is necessary, because it would be pretty dull to save the world from a villain one episode, and then be threatened by another the next. Super does a great job with the filler, it really does. So this is yet another improvement over Z.

Now on to the cast of characters dwindling relevance. Is this an issue in Super? Of course, but they have taken great strides to include a lot of the cast, even if it is just for a moment. We have gotten to see some of the old Z fighters participate in DBS for the first time since the early DBZ sagas, and it is more than welcome to me. This exclusion of characters is probably the most complained about thing from Z, and now that they actually made efforts to include them…guess what? People hate it, mainly because they complain about power scaling…another thing that was a huge issue in Z.

Yeah, in the Tournament of Power saga, there certainly is a ton of questionable means of powering up, but by now, this is nothing new and fans should be well beyond caring about that.

The power scaling went to crap way back on good old planet Namek. Like…seriously…none of that made sense, and it bothered me at first, but then I realized something very important…

WHO CARES?

The show would be extremely dull if there wasn’t power issues. It would eventually just come to one character killing someone else in one hit, next villain, same thing, next fight, same thing.

Like, I truly can’t wrap my head around how upset people get over this. Like, if everything in every movie and show made sense, they would all be boring and quite terrible for the most part. That is not why we watch shows. We watch them so reality floats away from us for a little bit, not so we can whine and criticize something every time it strays from reality and sense.

And finally, people complain about the show being too focused on Goku, and poorly written.

Seeing as Goku is the main character of the series and has been for like 30 years or whatever, how is anyone surprised by this? His personality is what drives the show. It is how he wins over the hearts of his enemies, and if they are evil enough, his personality drives him to improve constantly no matter the odds. That has been true since the first episode of Dragon Ball, and remains so today.

And the stories have never really been good, or really in depth I should say. It is a show about super powered beings pummeling each other. Someone threatens to destroy the world, and someone stops them. It has been done thousands of times in every show ever. What are they talking about, poor writing?

ITS AN ACTION SHOW!!! WATCH IT FOR THE ACTION!!

Which in my opinion…Super has the best in the series. People spend so much time trying to calculate power levels and judging the way they go about increasing them. What does it really matter, honestly? It is so cool to see these characters just fight it out, and the more transformations, the cooler it gets in my opinion. Dragon Ball is all about absurd transformations and always has been. It is what makes the show interesting.

But anyway, the whole point I am trying to make here is…

NOSTALGIA STRIKES AGAIN!!!

Dragon Ball Z is such a beloved show for anyone who grew up during the time it aired, that a new series continuing after it is nothing but an insult to it’s existence. Many of these people complaining about Super probably haven’t even seen Z in over 10 years and only have that nostalgic feeling…you know that happy, warm memory of their childhood self coming home from school and running to the TV to see what amazing adventure Goku and the others would take them on next, and a very vague memory of the actual show.

Yeah…I have those feelings…I love Z, but that doesn’t stop me from loving Super. They are essentially the same show. Nostalgia doesn’t make me blindly hate something for no reason. And I own every episode and movie of DB, DBZ and GT and watch them all at least every 3 years, so it’s not like I’m speaking from nostalgic memories.

But again, I feel like nostalgia is trying to prevent progress, in this case a series progressing forwards. And negative press will just likely prevent new things from coming out in the future, which is really a tragic shame.

But think what you will, nostalgically influenced or not. I for one am overjoyed that my favorite TV show has been revived into something new.

 

And really, why does it even have to be compared to other series it is related too? Who cares which is better? As long as you enjoy it. But those nostalgic feelings won’t allow any room for anything other than that one original, childhood memory. Even though the show took steps in remedying old fan complaints, it is nothing but trash, for it can never be able to take on the force that is nostalgia!

But okay, I feel like I am going on a rant or something. Nostalgia just really annoys me. I will end it here.

 

 

Nostalgia Prevents Progression

Ahh, nostalgia, how nice you are, yet how unbelievably stupid and annoying!!

Nostalgia is defined as a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

So basically anytime you experienced something blissful for the first time, and more or less your entire childhood falls under this tyrannical word…nostalgia.

Do I have nostalgic feelings? Absolutely! But I have no problem thinking back to the things I am nostalgic about and realizing that maybe things weren’t so great.

But I seem to be in the minority. People hold on to their nostalgia for life. This is a serious problem, for I feel it prevents progression; I mean this in terms of media and life.

If you are always looking back in the past, always reminiscing about better days, then you will never learn to like anything again and will be forever miserable, for you will always be longing to find something that makes you feel the way that first time you felt whatever it was when you were a kid or whatever. Now add years of nostalgia on top of that happy memory and/or feeling, and your brain deludes you into thinking it was greater than it ever actually was. This effect increases over time, for your actual memory of the event or object or what have you fades, thus leaving only the feelings you had for that, resulting in a cozy little nest for nostalgia to settle in to.

This reminds me of heroin…that’s right, I am saying nostalgia is heroin. They say heroin addicts are constantly using, trying to achieve that first high they ever got from the drug, for that it was the greatest thing they have ever experienced and all theey want is to re-experience it. But they never do, and then they end up dead from an overdose.

Nostalgia is exactly the same, is it not? Though do not worry, I’m rather certain you can’t die from an overdose of nostalgia.

I fortunately/unfortunately have a brother who is like the most nostalgic person I know. He hates everything new because he has such strong feelings for all the things we had or experienced as little kids that he thinks everything else is complete and utter trash.

I am referring to media, like movies. He swears all these movies we watched as children are so amazing and wonderful. While some of them are, a lot of them are not. I mean for little kids they are great, but as adults, they are annoying and impossible to sit through.

tmnt 2Now when I watch a movie that I absolutely loved from my childhood and come to find it’s terrible, I admit I feel disappointed that it wasn’t as good as I remember, but then I immediately get over it. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 was one of my favorite movies of all time when I was young. But I watched the movie about 10 years later, when I was an adult, and found it to be borderline terrible.

Now, I just accept this and move on. Big deal. My feelings on movies when I was 5 versus 25 are going to be different. But people like my brother- they just focus so much on their initial feelings from when we first saw the movie that I am not even sure they are actually watching it, but instead are wandering through some nostalgic wonderland, thinking off all the great times they had as kids and what not.

Now, we could just have differing opinions on things, but this happens on just about everything.

Another example is the SNES. We really only had this console growing up. It was an amazing console back in the 90’s and it certainly still is today. I still play mine, but I have no problems moving on to other consoles and games.

My brother, however, is so nostalgic over the SNES and its many fine games on it, that he won’t even entertain the thought of playing other games. Super Mario World, A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid are probably his 3 favorite games, and they are without a doubt three of the best games ever made. But he absolutely refuses to play any Mario, Zelda or Metroid games made afterwards, as if their very existence is an insult to his childhood. Even if he watches a trailer, he will watch the first 10 seconds and turn it off in disgust. If it isn’t a game for SNES, then it is no good, so he thinks.

But this is not entirely true. Another game we played as kids was the WarCraft, Diablo and StarCraft series, so he loves these games too.

blizzard franchises

Literally all he plays, 20 years later, is all our old SNES games and the Blizzard games for PC, disgusted by everything else out there, with a few exceptions.

He despises Nintendo now, because they dared to move on from the SNES and evolve, like all companies must do to survive.

-UPDATE-

I was talking with my cousin about Mario Odyssey, and my brother was listening in. He sarcastically said, “Yeah, throwing his hat is so cool. Remember when he did that in the old games?”

This just goes to show you how blinding nostalgia is. Really, that comment can be translated to, “How dare they progress and do something different.” I mean seriously, that is an unbelievably stupid thing to say and makes no sense whatsoever.

-END UPDATE-

Which brings me back to my fear of progression and lack there of. My brother is hardly alone in these blinding, nostalgic feelings. That is why so many companies are trying to force nostalgia into their products, to trick that little kid still living in all of us into purchasing whatever it is. This is not really a bad thing, but again, if we are so focused on the past, we can never truly experience something brand new, fresh and exciting. But most people are afraid of change and would rather feel something familiar when charting new territory, and I understand that, but how long must we be tethered to the past?

And anyway, bringing back old things makes them less special. Now that they are in the here and now, it makes the original lose some of it’s charm. But most people will disagree, because they still have that huge nostalgic feeling clouding their brain. Even if what they are reliving is exactly the same as when they first experienced, it will not be the same to them, swearing it is different, and that is simply because of the nostalgic feelings associated with the original.

And don’t dare try to remake or update anything so sacred. People will immediately hate it, just for being different, whether the product is good or not. Like the new Nintendo games, they are doing nothing but insulting their good memories and childhoods. How often do you hear “the original is the best” or something along those lines. The Halloween remake and Ghostbusters remake comes to mind when thinking about this. And they are just two in a very enormous list.

star wars

A perfect example is the Star Wars movies. The original trilogy came out to unbelievable praise and they are probably the most famous movies in history. Then the Special Editions came out, and for literally no reason that I can fathom, a lot of people hated them. That is because of nostalgia once again. LucasFilm dared to change such sacred movies. And really, all they did was more or less put in bigger explosions and add some more creatures. How is that a negative in anyway? Because it insults peoples nostalgic feelings, that’s how!

And then the prequels came out, and everyone hates them. The special editions were forgivable, because it was really the movies fans knew and loved. But now, they got a dose of something different. Most of the complaints about the prequels are completely ridiculous, and no matter how hard I try, I can’t understand why so many people hate them. Until I realized the cause was most likely nostalgia.

I spent my early childhood watching the crap out of the original trilogy. I loved them then and I still do. I love the prequels just as much, if not more. They gave me everything I wanted that the original three lacked. But I see so many people who hate them because they don’t give them the same feeling they got from when they first saw Star Wars. My brother has only seen the prequels once or twice when they first came out, and he hates them, and it’s all because of his nostalgic feelings for 4-6. He doesn’t even remember the movies anymore, but he hates them real bad. To me, if you can’t remember why you hate something, then you mustn’t actually hate it. But that’s what nostalgia wants you to think.

The prequels were a change in formula for the series, but still very much felt like Star Wars, which to me is perfect for when someone makes something new within an existing universe. As long as you are not left wondering where the heck you are, then I welcome all the new stuff.

But then we get to the more recent Episode 7: The Force Awakens. I remember watching the movie in complete awe from beginning to end. This is because first and foremost, I absolutely love Star Wars and have been wanting another trilogy since I first watched Return of the Jedi, but then secondly, because Disney filled the crap out of this movie with nostalgia. It took about an hour after the movie for my nostalgia to wear off and then I realized what a disappointing movie it is. They took hardly any risks with the movie, if any, and gave us Episode 4.1. And people love every minute of it.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love the movie, but it is by far the worst out of the 7. The point I am trying to make here is that progression failed here, because Disney was too worried about appealing to all the nostalgia ridden people who hated the prequels to actually make something new. And it paid off for them, which is what really scares me for the upcoming episode 8, which seems to be not a far cry off from Empire Strikes Back, but I will reserve judgement until I see the movie, of course.

And for the heck of it, I will throw in one more example of how nostalgia blinds people. I am going to mention that good ol’ rapper, Eminem.

He kind of owned the world back in the very late 90’s and early 00’s. His second major album, the Marshal Mathers LP was when he really took off. It reached diamond and I think it still holds the record for fastest selling album. You couldn’t go anywhere at that time without hearing his songs on the radio, the TV, or just people singing them.

eminemFast forward to today and he’s released a whole lot more albums and I think another should be coming out very soon. In any case, his talents as a rapper have increased rather substantially. He is a far, far better artist than he was 20 years ago. But guess what everyone’s favorite album is, (including my brother’s)? That’s right, the MM LP. Again, I am not saying that that album is nothing less than amazing, but most of his stuff after that has completely destroyed that album. But people hang on to that nostalgia of when they first heard of Eminem and that amazing feeling they got when they heard “My Name Is”and “The Real Slim Shady” for the first time. It doesn’t help matters that Eminem was so controversial and almost taboo that every kid who owned his album was looked up to as some kind of bad ass god. That will certainly swell the nostalgic feelings a bit.

But thank goodness Eminem only focuses on the music and getting better, otherwise, he would hold himself back to please all the nostalgic people who loved his early stuff so much. Thus progression would be thwarted. But this has indeed happened to many artists anyway.

And the best part is…even if someone made something exactly like the thing fans were nostalgic for, even if it was everything good about the original and more…it still would displease them. The creators would be accused of trying to change the original…like a remake, accusing them of being out of ideas. But if they do progress and make something new, better or not, they are lynched for changing and moving on from what has been held so beloved by people.

In other words…nostalgia can not be beat. It has a grip on too many people, and no one can take down something so overwhelmingly powerful.

But I shall conclude my thoughts now. I am not saying nostalgia is a bad thing. It can truly be wonderful. But don’t let that stop you from trying new things and adventuring forth in a world that could have so much more to offer, and who knows, maybe you’ll find something better? You just have to let go of pointless attachments to memories from years and years ago. If you do, they will still be there, but you will see and think more clearly and be more open to just about everything. There is always room to share in that brain of yours, and your heart…

 

 

We Need A Dragon Ball Super Game

Many people are looking forward to the upcoming release of Dragon Ball FighterZ.

While this looks to be an awesome game, I think what we need now is a game dedicatedDBZ_Tenkaichi_3_Cover_2 to Dragon Ball Super. And if not dedicated to the series, then doing something like they did with Tenkaichi 3, where they covered most of Dragon Ball, Z and GT, not to mention the movies and then some. Tenkaichi 3 is by far my favorite Dragon Ball game. With fun gameplay and an unrivaled character roster, no game has come remotely close to it since it’s release.

Now imagine if they could take that game and just add DBS to it. It would be something amazing for sure. The series, in its 111 episodes that have aired so far, has introduced countless new characters and transformations. Heck, the Tournament of Power alone could make an amazing game.

The tragic thing about this is that we will never get a game like Tenkaichi 3 ever again, simply because games are much more condensed now, and take advantage of DLC to bulk it up. This is the case of FighterZ, as well as just about every other fighting game out there nowadays.

But we’ve played through the Z series dozens of times in our lifetime. Now it is time to make something new for a new, amazing show.

Though really, I suppose it would be more prudent to wait until the series finishes before making a DBS dedicated game. At least they are including some characters from the new series in the more recent games, so that’s a start.

Spider Man Trilogy VS The Amazing Spider Man Would Be Trilogy

I’m just going to go out and say it. Sam Raimi’s trilogy is certainly far better than the two Amazing Spider Man movies. It would seem that most of the world is in agreement with that as well.

But what makes it all that much better? Well, I am just going to talk about 2 things that really bug me.

But before I get to that, let’s take a look at the main character. I find this to be interesting, for I feel Toby McGuire played a better Peter Parker, while Andrew Garfield was the better costumed hero.

Both did good jobs at their alter-egos, but Garfield really nailed the humor and sarcasm Spider Man is known for, while McGuire’s seemed to lack that severely, while Garfield’s Peter was far to “hip” and not at all nerdy. You didn’t feel bad for him. When he became Spider Man, it was like, oh okay.

But when McGuire becomes Spider Man, you are so happy that something good happened to him, because for the 10 minutes of the movie he does not have powers, he is being crapped on by everyone he meets.pparker3

So we’ll put them at a tie for main character. So what about their love interests? Both Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and Mary Jane, (Kirsten Dunst) do great jobs at being those characters and giving them their own personalities.

This was what I immediately hated about The Amazing Spider Man. Gwen and Peter are classmates that seem to barely know each other beyond “that kid in my class,” but they have like two conversations and instantly fall head over heels, deeply, madly in love. Yes, it’s implied Peter has had a crush on her already, but their coupling happens so instantaneously that it is very unbelievable that it put me off from their relationship. The lack of character development for both of them also puts a disinterest in their personal love affairs too. I don’t know, just going from less than acquaintances to destined lovers in minutes is just a bit farfetched.

In Sam Raimi’s trilogy, it becomes immediately clear that Peter has wanted Mary Jane, his next door neighbor, for his entire life, and she has hardly spared a glance for him. She was the exact opposite of him. He knew he didn’t have a shot at her at all. When he gets his powers, he becomes a little more confident, but still fails to make a move.

So instead, Pete’s best friend dates her instead. Eventually she falls for Spider Man, which gives Peter the confidence to move forward as himself. When he finally can have her, he shuts her down to protect her. The second movie is a roller coaster of emotion. he basically gives up his whole life to be Spider Man, truly a noble act, but when he can bear it no longer, he gives it up, only to have Mary Jane say no. He returns as Spider Man when Mary Jane realizes she made a mistake and tells him she wants to be with him.

Again, Peter stays away to protect her. This is so powerful because both at this point know that they love each other so deeply, and neither of them truly understands why they won’t allow themselves to be with the other. They are constantly struggling with themselves, so by the time they end up together, in the last scene of the movie, you are about as happy as they are.

So in otherwords, McGuire and Mary Jane take two full movies to finally come together, while Garfield and Gwen take two scenes.

My final reason for today why Sam Raimi’s is so much better is the whole way Uncle Ben died.

uncle-ben-has-died-so-many-times.png

In Amazing, Ben and Peter have a huge fight, one worse I think than in Raimi’s movies, peter fightso that’s a plus. But the circumstances leading up to Ben’s murder are pretty lame and would not impose as much guilt on Garfield, thus the viewer does not feel as much sorrow or whatever for Peter either, or really, the entire situation.

Allow me to explain what I mean. In both movies, Peter has a run in with the criminal who kills Uncle Ben moments before he does that heinous act. Peter has a chance to stop them, and doesn’t, thus Peter always believes it is his fault.

So in Amazing, Peter goes to a store to buy a little thing of milk for himself. He is short two cents and tries to take it from that “leave a penny, take a penny thing.” The clerk is a real d-bag and gives him a hard time, saying he can’t just take money without leaving any in return or something. It doesn’t really make sense. But the clerk says it’s “store policy,” and an angered Peter leaves the milk behind and shuffles off, just as the criminal enters the store. He robs the register and even gives the milk to Peter, thus technically making him a shoplifter. When the robber takes off, the clerk yells to Peter to go and catch him. The clerk gets mad when he doesn’t and Peter says it’s not his policy.

This is what ticks me off. Why is the clerk so mad and expectant of Peter? He doesn’t know he has powers. Why would anyone expect some random person to go chase down a criminal. The only person who is aware that he could easily stop the criminal is Peter himself. And because he didn’t have enough money to buy the milk, he took it out on the store clerk.

So the criminal gets away and shoots Uncle Ben. The only satisfying thing about this is the childish reason Peter let the criminal get away. That could weigh heavy on someone’s mind for sure. But yeah…pretty lame.

uncle ben deadIn Raimi’s film, Peter wins a wrestling match to win $3000 but gets scammed and winds up only getting like $200 for basically being too strong. He’s trying to win the money to buy a car, but the man tells him he fails to see the part where that’s his problem. So he gets screwed and leaves all ticked, just as the criminal goes and robs the cash that Peter rightfully won and then some. Pete lets him pass to get away and the man says that you could have killed that guy. Peter says it’s not his problem. This is much better because Peter just proved that he was able to easily crush anyone in his path and the man knew it. He wasn’t just getting ticked at a random customer. Peter could have also easily stopped him without revealing his powers since he was face to face with the man. Garfield was in the middle of a street that would have attracted far too much attention.

In short, Garfield is mad because he didn’t have enough money, and McGuire was mad because he was screwed out of 3 grand. So yeah. Raimi’s is a lot better in that respect.

There are many other reasons why the older ones are better, but I could be here all day talking about it. The original trilogy is even more impressive because they were made before there were countless super hero movies. They were essentially a guinea pig and they were better than anyone expected. Even now, when the first movie is nearly 20 years old (wow!) they still hold up today.

And for the record, I do enjoy all of them, just some were very disappointing.  From worst to best I would rank them

Tournament of Hotties: Impossibly Hot Women, Final

We have the two finalists battling it out here! See how they made it this far with the links posted here.

I’ve already explained to death how impossibly hot they are, so let’s just see some pics.

 

 

Megan Fox

VS

Sara Jean Underwood

Let’s have a little fashion show. Let’s see what these beauties look like in lingerie!!

 

 

 

 

Wow, those are some hot ladies!

What about bikinis…those are always hot, right?

 

 

 

 

Meowsa!!!

What about costumes?

 

 

Those are painted on! Makes you wish she played Wonder Woman in the recent film. She seems not to be a big fan of dress up unfortunately, because we would all love to see her in some more outfits.

Sara definitely is, even into some cosplay. So she will have a few more pictures.

 

 

There is nothing sexier than a woman who likes to dress up, though dressing down might be more accurate.

And just because, here’s just a few more hot pictures of our finalists.

 

 

 

 

Okay, now the big decision…who is hotter?

This is really, really hard to choose. These are honestly the two hottest women on the planet, and each wants to be number 1.

But I have to give the winning spot to her.

Sara Jean Underwood!!!!!!

While both girls are perfect in every way, Sara’s got a more tone body, sexy blond hair, and always looks so diverse in her pictures, which somehow gives her this sweet and sexy personality, which if you are hot and a sweetheart, you’re golden. I suppose the endless amount of photos of her doesn’t hurt either.

Bottom line, she is the hottest person I have ever laid eyes on, or at least through a computer screen. I will never lay real eyes on her… So congratulations Sara on being named hottest woman on the planet!

And like always, I like to rank all the contestants in my own personal opinion, from least hottest to hottest. Though regardless of how well they did in the tournament or in my personal ranking, these 16 women are, as far as I know and/or am concerned, the hottest women on Earth. Ranking them will probably be harder than the one on one matches. Oh boy…

Anyway here they are, from least impossibly hot, to most impossibly hot. The round in parentheses is how far they made it in the tournament.

Tournament Of Hotties: Impossibly Hot Women, Round 3 (Semi-Finals)

Alright! We narrowed it down to the last four hotties! These gorgeous gals will battle it out to see which two will make it to the finals!

Check out the links here to catch up on all the hottie action in rounds 1 and 2, and then please, enjoy the upcoming hotties!

 

Megan Fox

VS

Joanie Brosas

I’ve already talked about how amazingly beautiful and perfect and sexy Megan Fox is. No matter what she’s wearing, or not wearing, she is just so, so beautiful. She took down Tara Reid and Jessica Alba in this tournament so far. When will her rampage end? Let’s take a look and see if that end is in sight.

 

A woman who looks like this is definitely going to be tough to beat. As I just said, no matter what she’s in, she’s gorgeous.

I mean, in this picture I’m about to show you, she is in hardly anything revealing, and it’s barely more than a picture of her face.

მეგან ფოქსი

It’s such an innocent picture and yet my jaw drops to the floor as if she was standing naked in front of me. She’s beautiful, plain and simple.

And to compete with her is the slender, sexy cosplayer Joanie Brosas, whose taken down Katie Cassidy and Angelina Jolie so far. This girl has an amazing body that easily takes the cake over Megan Fox’s body. And the fact that Megan’s is already completely perfect, that is a mighty impressive thing to say.

And speaking of Megan, I think she is the reason I discovered Joanie, now that I think about it. I was reading an article that was talking about Megan Fox being considered to play Lara Croft for a Tomb Raider reboot movie years ago. There was a picture of this.

Megan Fox Tomb Raider cosplay

It’s a hot photo, for sure, but this picture somehow led me to these…

 

 

And thus I discovered potentially the greatest body of all time. I mean just look at that. It completely blows away what Megan Fox looks like in her outfit. I”m sure you want more evidence to back up the whole “greatest body claim,” so here it is.

 

There are no words to describe her body. Like jeez, it’s (insert description here). Perfect is an understatement.

I mean, look at these pictures.

 

That other girl is no pushover. In other words, she’s hot. But when standing next to Joanie, she almost appears ugly. So I suppose the real question is, does Megan Fox appear ugly next to Joanie?

The answer…No.

Megan is still gorgeous. The hard part is deciding which of these women is actually hotter. We’ve already established Joanie has the better body, so that’s big points.

The woman that will move on is just barely hotter than her competition. There is something just more sexy about her. It’s like she is a goddess or something, but seems so real as well, if that makes any sense. You get lost in her looks, and it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Victor

Megan Fox

You see? There is just something so real about her? It’s hard to explain, much like her beauty. Whatever she’s got, Joanie is lacking in it.

Next up are quite literally the two hottest blondes on the planet.

 

 

 

Sara Jean Underwood

VS

Alexandria DeBerry

Sara has beat out Ciara Hanna and Elizabeth Hurley, two of the finest woman in two different generations. But does the PlayBoy model have what it takes to compete with the gorgeous Alexandria? Maybe these pictures can help shed some light…

 

Good lordie, what a body! There isn’t a flaw on this woman. She is so toned, so hot, so sexy, so perfect.

Next is Allie, who can impressively say she has taken down Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. Her body is literally an hourglass shape and it’s amazing. Here, see for yourselves!

 

 

Everything about her is amazing! EVERYTHING! Just look at her. She is not of this world. She is too perfect. Her butt…wow…her boobs…nice! Her long flowing hair. Her tight, toned body. Those lips, that adorable face. Regardless of how much is covered or revealed on that flawless figure, she can take your breath away.

So which of these two blond beauties is hotter? This is a very tough decision, but I think this one is.

Victor

Sara Jean Underwood

Megan Fox will join Sara in the finals.

But I have to say this about Joanie and Allie. Those two girls are so hot, so perfect, so beautiful in every way, that they almost seem manufactured, like they are robots or something. Sara and Megan beat them for they feel more real, more relatable, and have distinctive sexy auras about them. It’s easier to wrap your head around those two.

So I guess you could say Joanie and Allie lost for being too hot, which doesn’t make sense in a Tournament of Hotties, but that’s the way it goes.

See you next time for the final round of the Impossibly Hot Women tournament!
