Is Goku Really That Strong?

Goku is the main protagonist of the long-running Dragon Ball series and probably the most well-known anime character of all time, thus I really don’t need to give him an introduction.

Goku is depicted as this unstoppable beast of a martial artist. When the going gets tough, the Z-fighters go to Goku to solve their problems. He’s typically the only one who can stand up to the ever more powerful villains that seem to want to kill him all the time. And even when he’s not strong enough to take them down, he pushes himself until that becomes possible.

So in the Dragon Ball universe, Goku is pretty much the top tier ass-kicker. Compared to all his companions, he is leaps and bounds above them in power. Even Vegeta, Goku’s rival Saiyan and second-most powerful fighter, always seems to be miles and miles behind Goku.

But I gotta wonder. Is Goku really as strong as the shows make him out to be? Because for the most part. Goku gets huge advantages over his comrades, mainly because he let’s them do all the hard parts, while he sits back and watches from a safe distance. So despite usually being the hero that comes out on top each story arc, he really isn’t all that deserving of it.

Allow me to explain, by going through a large amount of Goku’s battles.

Pilaf:

Goku is captured by him and only breaks loose by turning into a giant ape. Granted he beats Pilaf multiple times in the future, but their first run in he nearly dies by the shrimp.

Jackie Chun:

Goku loses to him in the World Martial Arts Tournament

jackie beats goku

General Blue:

Goku fails to actually defeat him. The only things that save him from death are Bulma’s advances on Blue and a collapsing cave.

general blue bulma

Mercenary Tau:

Goku gets obliterated, and only lives by a stroke of luck. Sure he beats him later, but only after some hard training.

goku vs tau

Red Ribbon Army:

I’ll give him that one. Though that was like the equivalent of Bruce Lee knocking down a beehive with a bee suit on and armed with bee spray.

goku vs red ribbon

Tien:

Goku loses to him at the World Martial Arts Tournament

goku lose against tien

King Piccolo:

Goku gets beaten up by him a few times, and only barely manages to defeat him in the end, even after going through great lengths to gain a lot of strength.

goku losing to king piccolo

Piccolo:

Goku barely manages to win this fight in the World Martial Arts Tournament, so I guess he’s not a total wuss. But Piccolo had to fight Krillin and Kami before taking on Goku. While he was able to defeat them easily, they gave him more trouble than expected, thus he had to use up more energy, especially when reversing the Evil Containment Wave.

Goku had to fight Tien, who he beat easily, but with some effort, and then had a nice break against Chi-Chi, who posed no challenge at all. So Piccolo was clearly the more fatigued fighter going into their match.

goku vs piccolo

Raditz:

Goku flat out loses, and only manages to actually help kill Raditz by holding him down while Piccolo deals out the only attack between them powerful enough to kill Raditz. And Goku dies. So yeah. Weak.

goku dying against raditz

Nappa

Goku wins this fight easily, but only because Nappa had been fighting for a very long time, taking many attacks from a whole lot of fighters and using up a lot of energy in the process.

goku beats nappa

Vegeta:

He loses spectacularly. Only with the combined powers of himself, Krillin, Gohan, and Yajirobe, and extreme luck, does Vegeta finally go down.

goku kicked by vegeta

Ginyu Force:

Goku beats Recoome in one shot. Like Nappa, Recoome had taken a lost of abuse and expelled a large amount of energy, so sorry Goku, not that impressive.

Sure he managed to defeat Burter easily enough. But was he really all that strong? They always boasted how fast he was, so he probably wasn’t very strong. So as long as Goku could catch him, knocking him out shouldn’t be too difficult.

Jeice, well, he just seems like a big wuss, and is easily defeated by Vegeta later on, so that just shows Goku’s not so great.

And Captain Ginyu? Goku loses to him without them practically even fighting.

goku after body change

Frieza:

Frieza barely even tries in this fight, and completely obliterates Goku. And this is after Frieza has been fighting for a very long time, getting beat up a whole lot, and transforming three times, something that takes up a whole lot of energy.

Even after turning Super Saiyan, which only happens because the ones who counted on him to protect them die, Goku still barely manages to win, and only does because Frieza’s cut down by his own attack. So his own power could destroy him. Not Goku’s.

And krikey! Goku wasn’t even strong enough to kill him with a final blow. Frieza lived through that, and a planet exploding, while cut in two. So Goku, you don’t impress me.

goku vs frieza

Android 19:

Goku loses. Blame his heart condition all you want. But he fought first, which he hardly ever does, and just couldn’t win.

goku vs android 19

Cell:

Goku fights first and loses. He can’t even beat a Cell Jr.

goku vs cell

Pikkon:

They tie in Other-World Tournament. Jeez, the guy can’t even legitimately beat some no-name dead guy in a filler episode.

goku other world tmt

Yakkon:

So Goku wins this fight. But that’s because Yakkon isn’t all that strong. Like at all. He just hides in the dark, and uses his opponents blindness against them, which obviously means he’s compensating for his lack of strength.

yakkon

Majin Vegeta:

He loses. Sure he was holding back, but that’s his problem.

majin vegeta knocks out goku

Majin Buu:

This one’s a little complicated, as he fights he so many times in different forms.

He draws against fat Buu but later claims he could have beaten him, but wasn’t trying to. Yeah, keep telling yourself that, Goku.

He beats Buu viciously when fused with Vegeta, so that doesn’t count.

And he gets wrecked against Kid Buu, though again claims he could have beaten him if he had gone all out at the start of the fight.

He eventually does beat Buu, only after Vegeta and fat Buu hold him off for him so he could gather energy. But Goku can’t take credit, because the brilliant stategy to beat Buu was orchestrated by Vegeta, the butt-ton of energy required to destroy Buu did not belong to Goku, and he only managed to successfully overpower Buu with said energy after being healed by the eternal dragon. So yeah, not really Goku’s win.

goku vs kid buu

Beerus:

Goku loses. But he puts up the best fight among all the Z-fighters because he hides in the shadows while he watches all his friends get the hell beat out them so he can develop a strategy that he fails to come up with anyway. He also needs the power from five other Saiyans to become a Super Saiyan God to be able to stand up to Beerus, so not his own doing. And he still loses.

And let’s face it. Beerus was only ever hit by Goku because Vegeta punched him so damn hard that it shook up the Egyptian cat so much that he couldn’t focus when it came time to fighting Goku. Also, Beerus wasn’t even trying.

goku vs beerus

Golden Frieza:

He loses. The only hope he had of winning was because Frieza ran out of energy. Before that, he was in big trouble. And he still lost. And he would have died had Whis not saved the day, giving Goku another chance to save the world.

golden frieza vs goku

Frost:

He loses.

goku lost

Hit:

The only reason he does well against Hit is because Vegeta is used as a guinea pig. Watching Vegeta fight him allowed him to learn his Time-Skipping technique, but only after Whis explained it to him. Something Vegeta did not have the luxury of. And Goku still loses.

And Hit kills him immediately in their second fight.

hit vs goku

Goku Black/Zamasu:

He gets repeatedly destroyed by this pair. He actually never even manages to defeat them.

goku black zamasu goku

Bergamo:

Okay, so Goku wins this one. Big deal. They aren’t even in the same league. It’s like a 20-year-old punching a 10-year-old in the face.

goku vs bergamo

Jiren:

Goku fights and beats a lot of fighters in the Tournament of Power, but we’ll just focus on the main antagonist, Jiren. Long story short, Goku loses to him several times.

jiren beats goku

So I covered a lot of his fights, but not nearly all of them. These were mostly some of the bigger, more noteable ones.

The fact is, Goku only wins by joining the fight late, to take on fatigued fighters or else watching others fight first, and usually can only win with help of a handful of others.

So you are a great big wuss Goku!

 

 

My Top 10 PlayStation 4 Games

I have barely played my PS4, and the PS5 is already out. That’s when you know your backlog is way too huge. I have 77 games for PS4, and have only played 25 of them. So I thought it time to have this console join all the other top 10 lists I’ve made so far. So from the small percentage of games I’ve played for it, here are my 10 favorite!

#10

the order 1886-listing-thumb-ps4-us-09un14

Ready At Dawn/ SCEA

2015

This is a fascinating take on the Knights of the Round table. The story and action is fantastic, and the weapons are creative and fun. It’s modern science meets steampunk style is unique and wonderful. Only problem is the Lycan encounters aren’t so great and the game is very short. But that hardly matters when everything else is so awesome.

#9

middle-earth shadow of mordor

Monolith Productions/ Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

2014

Using the action formula first seen in Batman: Arkham Asylum, Shadow of Mordor takes you on a journey of a ranger and elf, dead yet somehow not, while you absolutely massacre hundreds of orcs, gaining awesome abilities along the way. The sword combat is fluid and fun to watch, and there’s tons of finishers and whatnot so combat never gets boring. This is a near-perfect action game.

#8

resident evil 7

Capcom

2017

This game blew me away. The first person perspective makes everything much more immersive and tense, the story is great, the dlc is fun and different, and the gameplay is excellent. I especially love the escape room parts… so clever and fun!

#7

the last of us remastered-listing-thumb-01-en-01oct20

Naughty Dog/ SCEA

2014

Aside from the excellent action and stealth gameplay, the story is very excellent and emotional, so much so that my wife, who detests the fact that I play video games, sat and watched me play it every chance she could. Come, to think of it, my brother and cousin told me similar stories.

#6

god of war 4 cover

SCE Santa Monica/ Sony Interactive Entertainment

2018

While the new gameplay isn’t as good as the old style of God of War, it’s still nothing less than incredible. Combine this with the plethora of upgradeable armor, weapon runes and large skill trees, you’ve got yourself an excellent game. The story is marvelous as well.

#5

god of war iii remastered-screen-13-ps4-us-16jun15

Wholesale Algorithms/ SCEA

2015

GoW3 is by far the pinnacle of the series. The story, the weapons/magic, the excellent, flawless gameplay. Slap some smoother graphics and whatever else is involved with remastering it, and you’ve got yourself a better version of one of the best action games of all time.

#4

tomb raider definitive-edition-listing-thumb-01-ps4-us-23dec14

Nixxes Software/ Square Enix

2014

Wow. This game is amazing. Like. Wow. Fun weapons and tools to go with the incredible gameplay. The story is driving and interesting, and watching Laura change into the Croft we all know and love is a thing of beauty. She goes from a near helpless, terrified woman, to a confident, deadly badass, and it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever witnessed.

#3

infamous SecondSon_04

Sucker Punch/ SCEA

2014

The story and gameplay are superb, simply put. This takes place away from the characters of the first two games, showing how the conduits affect other parts of the world.

The five powers are incredibly unique in this one and each is a blast to use. While I miss Cole and his storyline, there’s no denying this game serves up the best gameplay of them all, not to mention it’s own intriguing story.

#2

kingdom hearts 2.8 sora rikue

Square Enix

2017

Containing essentially a short film explaining some of the back story of major characters from the phone game, a remaster of Dream Drop Distance, and a brand new, albeit short adventure displaying KH beyond a PS2-ish engine for the first time ever, this is one wonderful and welcome pack. The two games are incredibly fun, and the new story elements, in true KH fashion, answer some questions, but leave you with tons more.

#1

kingdom hearts 3-review

Square Enix

2019

I have long believed video games overall have been more or less in a decline after the PS2/GameCube/Xbox era. I feel like we got a lot more out of games back then. KH3 reminded me of those glory days. In fact, seeing how long time has separated KH2 & 3, I was astounded how they managed to keep the feel of the series in that time. They literally just build upon the mechanics of KH2, and even bring in elements from all the other games, to leave us with some truly addicting gameplay. The story is as Kingdom Heartsy as ever, filling out the Xehanort saga, all the while subtly setting us up for a whole new arc. The DLC, Re: Mind makes everything even better. This is easily one of the best games I’ve played in over a decade.

Though it is pretty easy, even on proud mode, but that hardly takes away any of the fun!

And there you have it! My top 10 PS4 games as of right now! Hopefully time will allow me to explore the dozens of other games still waiting for me to play, and hopefully some of them are good enough to make it on this list!

 

PS5 Has Big Problems, And Not Just Because Of The Price

Yes. the price of the PS5 is way too high, in my opinion anyway. But that’s not what I want to discuss today. It’s the actual size of the PS5 that has made me decided to pass on this console, unless they make a slim version, which since they never did for the PS4, I am not hopeful.

If you haven’t heard, the PS5 is just under 19 inches long and about a foot wide.

You effing kidding me?

Allow me to put it in perspective.

Here is a picture of a shelf in my entertainment stand.

My shelf is around 21-22 inches, long, just barely able to fit a PS5’s massive 19-inch girth. They are probably 15-16 inches deep to, so basically an entire shelf would have to be dedicated to one console.

This is unacceptable. All my shelves are full or close to it. It is not possible to relocate everything just to fit an unnecessarily giant console. I mean, look at that picture; I’ve got my PS2 sitting on top of my PS4, because I’ve got no room for it elsewhere, and the 4 is already way too big, and the PS5 is nearly twice the length!

Since the PS5 is apparently backwards compatible with 4 games, then I could get rid of my PS4, but it doesn’t appear that I can sit anything else on top of it, so forget that plan!

The Xbox Series X is around 6 inches wide and 11 inches long, and probably uses more or less the exact same hardware, so how did they manage something so much smaller?

Well at least PS5 games are coming out for 4, for a while anyway…here’s to hoping they slim that heifer down some time in the future. I’ll be waiting for a price cut anyhow, so hopefully that’s not the only thing that gets trimmed down.

Tournament Of Hotties: Adam Sandler’s Lovely Leading Ladies- Finals

At long last, we come to the finals. Many beautiful (and not so beautiful) women have battled it out from the numerous Adam Sandler films out there. And now we come to the final two hotties.

Take a look at all the other rounds here.

Let’s see who the hottest woman Adam Sandler has ever pretended to bang, or at least date or kiss or something like that, is.

 

Holly Sullivan (The Wedding Singer)

holly sullivan 2

Holly has defeated Linda (Wedding Singer), Veronica Vaugn (Billy Madison), Vanessa (Big Daddy) and Pam Dawson (Mr. Deeds) in this tournament. Those are some beautiful women.

As I’ve said numerous times already, this actress doesn’t choose to flaunt her body, which is highly unfortunate, but I’ll give you what I can…

She is really, really beautiful, especially in her youth, but is still someone you wouldn’t pass up in her current age.

 

VS

palmer and adam

Palmer Dodge (Just Go With It)

To reach the finals, Palmer had to eliminate Roxanne (Grown Ups), Laura (Funny People), Alex (Chuck & Larry), and Katherine (Just Go With It). That’s a hot line-up, and she managed to prevail.

Fortunately, unlike Holly’s actress, Palmer’s is very much a model, so feast your eyes, good people.

This woman is, as they say, drop-dead-gorgeous.  Incredible body, big boobs, long legs, beautiful face, great hair, what’s not to like? Especially since all of these things are shown off exquisitely in her movie.

Holly is a stunning woman, and I can’t decide if I want to hug her or jump on top of her and do the bad thing, due to her huge  mixture of cuteness and hotness. She’s a very sexy woman, and is downright gorgeous.

The thing is, Palmer is all of those things as well, but even more so.

That’s why, the hottest leading lady in an Adam Sandler movie is…

 

Tournament Winner

Palmer Dodge (Just Go With It)

 

This doesn’t really come as a surprise if you’ve seen my Impossibly Hot Women Tournament of Hotties, where Palmer’s actress, Brooklyn Decker, was a competitor. That tournament was essentially a grouping of 16 of the hottest women on the planet. But she did actually have some tough competition in here. But in the end, Palmer is just too friggin’ hot to touch.

 

And as a bonus (as usual), here are all the women ranked in my own personal order, from least hot, to hottest, as they appear in their respective films. The round they were eliminated in is in parentheses.

Tournament of Hotties: Adam Sandler’s Lovely Leading Ladies- Semi-Finals

Adam Sandler has done a lot of movies, most of them romantic comedies, and he typically has a very attractive woman as the person he is romancing, so it’s time to pit all the wives, girlfriends, partners in some way that he has had among all his movies to see who is the ultimate hottie!

Check out the past parts here, then get ready for the final four hotties!

 

Holly Sullivan (The Wedding Singer)

holly sullivan black and white

This woman is truly beautiful. She’s hot, cute, sexy, innocent, wild…everything you’d want in a woman wrapped up in one wonderful package.

Young or old, this woman is gorgeous. It’s really a shame she never became a model. That would have made a lot of people very happy…

 

VS

Pam Dawson (Mr. Deeds)

Mr. Deeds (2002) - Winona Ryder

Interesting that an alter-ego has made it this far. But when your as pretty as she is, it’s not surprising.

So in addition to being sometimes hot and sexy, and sometimes not, she also appears to be flat-chested in some pictures, and others she’s clearly holding in some massive knockers. What a mystery woman.

Both of these women are very attractive in their films, but one is far more so, mainly due to her sexy attitude and cute attire.

 

Victor

Holly Sullivan (The Wedding Singer)

We have our first finalist! And we couldn’t ask for a hotter woman!

 

Palmer Dodge (Just Go With It)

palmer dodge wave

I don’t even need to say anything.

Perfection.

 

VS

Katherine Murphy (Just Go With It)

katherine married

At last, the two fierce hotties from the same movie face off!

 

Both of these women are extremely hot in this movie. As I said in an earlier round, Jennifer Aniston was never that eye-catching to me, but in this movie, she had me drooling. How could she not when she looks like this…

So who will make it to the finals? The mature, gorgeous Katherine, or the youthful perfection that is Palmer?

Tournament of Hotties: Adam Sandler’s Lovely Leading Ladies- Round 1, Part 4

Adam Sandler has done a lot of movies, most of them romantic comedies, and he typically has a very attractive woman as the person he is romancing, so it’s time to pit all the wives, girlfriends, partners in some way that he has had among all his movies to see who is the ultimate hottie!

I can’t make any promises that I didn’t miss any, for there’s quite a few and it’s been years (like in the decades) since I’ve seen a lot of these, or I’ve only seen them once and don’t remember, but I’ll do my best to find them all!

Note that I will be judging the women as their characters, and not the actresses themselves, for we will likely see them before and after their films were made.

Check out round 1, 2, and 3 to catch up before viewing these last few women.

 

Bout #16

Smoking Fox (The Ridiculous Six)

Her name accurately describes her appearance.

 

VS

Becca (The Do-Over)

beccas the do-over

Okay, so I can’t seem to find anything of her actually in the movie, but she does play Adam Sandler’s character’s wife. And she’s not great…at all.

 

 

Victor

Smoking Fox (The Ridiculous Six)

 

Bout #17

Okay, we are going to cheat on this next one, because Becca is such a disappointment. There are other very hot leading ladies in The Do-Over, so here goes.

Heather (The Do-Over)

the do over

I don’t even need to say anything. But Heather is the lead female role in this movie, and chances are Adam Sandler was looking right where you are during this scene, so that’s close enough to his partner, because really, who wouldn’t want her to be?

 

VS

Dawn (The Do-Over)

dawn the doover

Okay, so this woman isn’t all that hot, but it’s hard not to look hot in what she’s wearing, and she’s still much better than Becca. I’ve only seen the movie once about four years ago, so I don’t really know who she is or what her relationship is to anyone. But it doesn’t matter, cuz she’s showing some skin!

There is a clear winner here…but congrats to both ladies for their sexy appearances.

 

Victor

Heather (The Do-Over)

Man…she loves her cleavage, doesn’t she. I know I do…

 

Bout #18

Courtney Clarke (Sandy Wexler)

courtney sandy-wexler-lg

I couldn’t find anything more flattering for her. Courtney is kind of hit-or-miss in this film. Sometimes she’s smokin’, other times she’s decent. Overall, she has nice features and a pretty good body, and no matter how she looks, she is always easy on the eyes.

 

VS

Debbie Lustig (The Week Of)

the week of

…Um…Yeah.

Easiest bout.

 

Victor

courtney clarke

Courtney Clarke (Sandy Wexler)

 

Bout #19

This is the final bout, and due to an uneven amount of women, we’ve got our selves a threesome!

Audrey Spitz (Murder Mystery)

audrey spitz

Audrey is pretty, but age is catching up with her. Makes me feel old saying that…

VS

Julia De Fiore (Uncut Gems)

julia de fiore

Julia is Adam Sandler’s character’s significantly younger and hotter…mistress I guess you would say. Oh, and his employee. I don’t even need to show you her face, because that butt speaks for itself. You may need to sit a little straighter for this one.

VS

Dinah Ratner (Uncut Gems)

dinah ratner

So she’s a whole lot of meh. Not someone you’d approach, but probably wouldn’t turn her away if she approached you…maybe. In any case, we can see why Sandler’s character would leave her for a younger hottie.

So this is a devastating round, for one completely destroys the other two.

Dinah is the least attractive by far, followed by Audrey, which leaves the absurdly wonderful bum of Julia.

Victor

Julia De Fiore (Uncut Gems)

 

Okay! We have just sifted through the bulk of women that were love interests (and then some) in Adam Sandler movies. See you in round two, where we’ll really get into it.

Tournament of Hotties: Adam Sandler’s Lovely Leading Ladies- Round 1, Part 3

Adam Sandler has done a lot of movies, most of them romantic comedies, and he typically has a very attractive woman as the person he is romancing, so it’s time to pit all the wives, girlfriends, partners in some way that he has had among all his movies to see who is the ultimate hottie!

Note that I will be judging the women as their characters, and not the actresses themselves, for we will likely see them before and after their films were made.

Check out round 1 and 2, and now let’s check out 10 more leading ladies from movies starring Adam Sandler!

 

Bout #11

Jill Hastings (Bedtime Stories)

jill hastings

Looks like she’s got a nice body under that shirt, but that’s all. Could just be the picture though.

jill hastings 2

Nah…not great.

 

VS

Laura (Funny People)

Oh, she’s pretty! But careful, she’s a cheater! But good thing the Tournament of Hotties doesn’t judge by character morality!

No contest.

Roxanne Feder

(Growns Ups/ Grown Ups 2)

roxanne feder grown-ups-2-image02

You have my attention Roxanne. How can you not, with those enormous boobs pushing open that dress? Who’s ever next is going to have a hard time beating this one.

 

VS

Palmer Dodge (Just Go With It)

brooklyn decker just_go_with_it05

…Wow…

What we have here is like opposites…glorious opposites. Roxanne is the dark stunning hottie, against the shining white stunner. It’s a shame both of these women face off so early.

Palmer has youth on her side, and while her boobs don’t look as big as Roxanne’s, they are no slouches. Overall, Palmer is actually much better looking, and her hair is prettier too.

But I don’t want to see Roxanne go out without a bang, so let’s see what we can dig up.

Dang. It’s really a shame we won’t get to see more of her. But seeing as hot as Roxanne is, it really impresses just how hot Palmer is! I can’t get over how big her boobs are!

I never found Jennifer Aniston very attractive, but when she takes on the role of Katherine Murphy, she was absolutely beautiful, but how could she not be in those dubs? Her hair in that picture compliments her fantastically, not to mention that fantastic body. Dang that’s nice. Just Go With It happens to be my favorite Adam Sandler movie, and the fact that it stars two stunning bikini clad women is a major bonus!

Let’s see what unfortunate woman has to compete with Katherine’s incredible body!

Erin Sadelstein (Jack and Jill)

She’s not bad, but I’m going to be blunt and say she doesn’t come close to Katherine. Though it does look like she’s got a nice tight body.

Maru McGarricle (That’s My Boy)

maru

Maru was a teacher who spent much of her life in prison for having an affair with one of her like-14-year-old students. That’s one lucky kid. Pretty sure all her students would bang her if given the chance.

We’ve all had teachers that we’ve wanted to bed, and I’ve gotta say, Maru doesn’t even come close to some of the teachers I’ve had. But I never managed to get any of them to put their job and freedom at risk. Sigh…

VS

Lauren Reynolds (Blended)

Hmm, she looks familiar…

This is no contest.

Man…I feel like such a bully. Drew Barrymore had three chances to advance, and was knocked out each time.

Carmen Herrara (The Cobbler)

I’ve never seen this movie, so I’m basing her off of a couple pictures. She’s okay. Nothing great, and she’s got more R’s in her last name than any name has business having.

Don’t even have to think about this one.

My Top 10 Animated Disney Films

In conjunction with my post last week, where I ranked my roughly 10 favorite live-action Disney films, now I will be ranking my 10 favorite animated ones. I expect most of them to be the old classics I grew up watching, but we shall see!

 

 

#10 Oliver and Company (1988)

Oliver-and-Company-released-TDID1180x600-780x440

Disney’s take on Oliver Twist, this focuses on an adopted cat who gets lost and is taken in by a hobo and his ragtag band of thieving dogs, all the while battling a deadly loan shark who wants them all dead. There’s love, great songs, and ransom in this exciting tale!

 

#9 Bolt (2008)

bolt

This is about an adorable action-star doggy who essentially gets lost and has to make his way out in the real world. Circumstances force him to see if he really has the stuff that he pretends to have in the movies. A massive test of character if you will.

 

#8 The Princess and the Frog (2009)

princess and the frog

An interesting take on the old children’s story, when Tiana, who is mistaken for a princess, is convinced to kiss a prince who’s been turned into a frog, but winds up a frog herself. Then the two go on an intense adventure both in personal growth, and survival. There are a lot of great characters, very sad moments, as well as heart-warming ones, and a lot of great songs, mostly focused around that awesome New Orleans sound.

 

#7 The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride (1998)

lk2

This movie focuses on Nala and Simba’s child, as well as the offspring of Scar. It’s essentially Romeo and Juliet…with lions. And it’s great. The songs are ridiculously good in it.

 

#6 The Lion King (1994)

lion king

A tale about Simba, a lion prince who’s blamed for the death of his father and tricked into running away, where he’s content spending the rest of his life living with a warthog and a prairie dog until he is convinced to face his destiny by his starving ex-girlfriend. He must return to his old kingdom and retake it from his bloodthirsty uncle, all the while clearing his own name. Simba also gets beat up by a baboon for good measure.

 

#5 Wreck-It Ralph Breaks The Internet (2018)

wreck it ralph breaks the internet

This movie is a lot of fun, and completely destroys it’s prequel. The character’s are all energetic and exciting to watch, the jokes are mostly hilarious, and having all the Disney princesses together is incredible.

 

 

#4 The Rescuers Down Under (1990)

the rescuers-down-under-1495719589

This is a sequel about two mice who work for an organization that work to help children. In this case, they need to free a child from a psychotic poacher who’s hell bent on killing some fancy, endangered eagle. Oh, and the kid too, who happens to be the eagle’s friend. Not to worry little boy, some rodent pests are on the job! It sounds silly, but it’s really good.

 

#3 The Rescuers (1977)

the rescuers-c2a9-walt-disney

This movie is really stinking dark. The entire setting, tone, themes, music. It’s all extremely dark and depressing. It’s about two mice who volunteer at an organization that helps kids in need. They embark on a dangerous journey to help an orphan who is adopted strictly for slave labor to mine in a cave that gets flooded at high tide. She is guarded by alligators, and when she is no longer needed, she’s left to die. It’s really a depressing and fantastic movie.

 

#2 Aladdin (1992)

aladdin_still

A homeless guy who’s only friend is a monkey is tricked by a sorcerer to find a lamp. He is left to die, but manages to steal the loot, which happens to contain a genie. After some intense life events, the homeless guy ends up nailing the hottest woman ever. All in all a very solid movie.

 

#1 Tangled (2010)

tangled

This movie really surprised me. Every single character is great, even the villain. Rapunzel is absolutely adorable and innocent. She’s been locked in a tower her whole life, so virtually knows nothing about the world, until a wanted criminal with a moody horse accidentally find her, and after a bunch of intense and hilarious events, Rapunzel learns about her life that was robbed from her as a baby, as well as a few other things about life in general. This is seriously a great movie, very funny and entertaining.

Well, there you have it. So most of them I grew up watching. I am amazed that my favorite one actually came out when I was in college. I’m glad to know Disney is still making quality stuff after all these years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kingdom Hearts III DLC: Ranking the 13 Limit Cut Bosses

The second chapter of the KH3 DLC is the “Limit Cut Episode,” one of the most difficult challenges in KH history.

In this episode, Riku is tasked with looking for Sora, so with the help of the Final Fantasy gang, they create data versions of Sora and the 13 darkness’, which thanks to Cid’s cynicality, are extremely murderous machines of pain and vengeance. (This isn’t 100% how it happens).

Thanks to these brutal bosses, I was forced to level to 99 (I was only 47) and get the Ultima Keyblade, two things I’ve never done before in any KH games. Once these two things are accomplished, only then can you stand a chance against such brutal bosses.

Fighting them at first seems like a grueling, unthinkable task, but as each boss falls beneath your keyblade, you feel an enormous sense of accomplishment, and then realize how expertly crafted each of them is.

At first, most of the bosses seem like an impossible entity that will slaughter you in seconds with their insanely over-the-top attacks and combos.

But as you continue the fight, you start to learn patterns and when they are vulnerable, and when to stay the heck away from them. So eventually, they seem not only beatable, but almost easy in a way!

I found myself slightly out of breath after each fight, for they are that intense, and I swear I had to morph my mind into a heightened sense of awareness to compete against these guys, which helped me defeat these tough cookies.

So for fun, I am going to rank them in order from easiest to hardest, in my opinion.

Note that I was playing this on Proud Mode…

 

XIII

Riku Replica

Dark_Riku_Limitcut_Kingdom_Hearts_III_Re_Mind

This one has some awesome attacks, but he is almost always open to attack himself. I beat him on my first try without any strategy at all, and didn’t even have to use a Kupo Coin. So he’s pretty darn easy, compared to the others.

XII

Vanitas

vanitas

Very similar to his fight in Birth by Sleep, this one seemed kind of familiar, except he’s harder here. He managed to kill me once, but that was because I was shocked at how easy he was and got a little reckless.

What makes him easy is most of his attacks or easily avoided, and he leaves himself open a lot, making him easy to wear down quickly.

XI

Larxene

larxene

This is the only other one beside Riku Replica that I beat on my first try, except I had to use my Kupo Coin. She has a lot of intense attacks, but being aggressive without forgetting to dodge and block every so often will net you an easy victory.

X

Marluxia

marluxia

His trick is a timer that will kill you if you don’t wear him down fast enough. Otherwise, he’s not too tough, and took me only two tries to beat, and that was probably because I didn’t know what the timer would do if it ran out, and may or may not have been a little curious.

IX

Xemnas

xemnas

He can be pretty intense, but there’s nothing that hung me up on him. I beat him in two or three tries, easily enough when I learned his attacks.

VIII

Ansem

ansem

He’s got some vicious attacks, but isn’t all that bad either once you get acclimated to him. He took me three tries to beat.

VII

Young Xehanort

young xehanort

I had a really hard time with him, but that is probably because he was the first one I fought, and wasn’t used to how intense these fights would be. He killed me a good many times before I realized there are actually patterns and strategies involved to be able to take these guys down.

VI

Xehanort

xehanort

For being the last boss, he isn’t too bad. I mean, he’s a beast, but after getting accustomed to his attacks, I found they are sort of easy to avoid and counter. He took me three tries.

V

Saix

saix

These last five bosses are the most intense, unholy devils of the universe. Saix took me probably around four tries, if not more. His berserk is a relentless waiting/dodging game of death, and patience isn’t my strong suit, which is why I struggled against him so much.

IV

Xigbar

xigbar

This guy is a beast. He keeps you at bay with his long range attacks, making this more of a defensive fight, waiting for those few opportune moments to get close and attack, again, which isn’t my style. He took me around six tries to beat.

III

Terra-Xehanort

terra xehanort

This lad has some truly vicious combos and attacks, many that are unblockable until the end of the onslaught, making dodging and then blocking at the right moments essential for victory. He’s a brutal dude who can kill you quickly if you’re not careful. He took me four tries to beat.

II

Luxord

luxord

This guy frustrated the heck out of me. He’s not hard really, but figuring out his little games certainly is, and then getting lucky enough to find him among the cards is always a chore. But once you figure out each of his attacks and develop a strategy, he’s kind of a pushover. Unfortunately that probably took me over 10 tries to figure out.

I

Xion

xion

This one is unlocked with Xehanort after beating the first 11, and she is a relentless bitch.

The first time I fought her, I got her down to one bar of health. Then she proceeded to murder me like 12 times. I gave up and beat her the next day on my first try.

Her attacks are very vicious, and getting hit by one of them opens you up to get hit by a ton more. Specific timing is required to block and counter her attacks, and you have a very short window to hit her.

She constantly gives herself armor too, which prevents you from harming her main health, and she can lower your max health down to nothing so you die in one hit. She’s definitely the toughest in my book.

 

So there you go. Playing through them is rough, and I don’t think I had much fun, until after I beat them. Then I realized how well-designed the fights were and how accomplished I felt, which made it all worth it.

 

 

 

 

 

Could Nintendo and Sega Be Gearing Up For A Fierce New “War?”

I can’t believe it. We have finally reached a time where video game movies are great!

What, with Detective Pikachu last year, and Sonic this year, and the likelihood of more movies from these and other franchises, we could be gearing up for a new war, but on a bigger screen now; a war reminiscent of the classic clash of the SNES and Genesis, when gaming was incredible for both companies, and video game movies were despicable.

And yes, I am saying the Sonic movie is actually quite good. It has jokes for all ages, and is really quite funny at times. The characters are all likeable, Jim Carey brings his classic acting back, and there are a few nice, and very subtle nods to various Sonic games.

I personally could have done with some more action, but it’s not really an action movie, so I guess it’s not what they were going for.

I highly recommend seeing it whether you are a Sonic fan or not. It’s good ol’ family fun!

I am excited to see if Nintendo and Sega will really try to outdo each other. We’ll have to see what the supposed Mario movie in the works has to offer!
