When something weird happens, everyone needs a best fitting explanation to go along with it. It’s even better when it is in the form of a movie. This would be The Disaster Artist. This is the movie that explains how the movie The Room was made. I watched this directly after watching The Room, and feel that this is totally necessary to get the most enjoyment from the film. It goes through every single tiny detail that you have when watching the original movie. Why is that line of dialogue needed? What’s with all the football throwing? Everything is brought up that you wanted a reasonable answer for. It doesn’t answer the vaguest question of who is this guy, but do you really want the answer to that? I don’t.
Recently, after wanting to see this movie for a couple of years now, I finally got around to watching The Room, a now cult classic. This movie is kinda awful in the best ways possible. I was laughing through the entire thing, cringing through all of the sex scenes and waiting for there to be plot again. If you are a movie snob, just know that this is not for you. This is not a movie to be taken seriously. Would I watch this again? Most definitely. I now need to make an effort to watch this movie every so often. It’s going to be my new guilty pleasure, and there will be no shame from anyone. This might be one of my new favorite movies.
Reading Part 3 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure or Stardust Crusaders was an event. Not only was this part the longest of the three, it introduced a totally new concept, and it did so super well. It was such an amazing thing to see how they mixed the concept of Hamon that was prevalent in the pervious parts and mixed it together to introduce the concept of stands. Stands , put simpily, are a manifestation of your soul. Each one, at least in this part, were expressed as tarot cards. It was just really cool to see a mixture of traditional and new creativity. So far, this is my favorite part, followed by Battle Tendency and Panthom Blood. Honestly, each part just gets better and better.
I’m going to tell you guys about this really interesting webcomic I finished reading. The title of this review tells you nearly all you need to know about #Blessed. In this, our protagonist is hating how lonely she is, decides to get on a dating app and accidentally wipes right on a pantheon of gods, seven to be exact. Now, she is a part of a prophecy and needs to go on dates will all of them and choose a single god. It is a really fun read, and will hopefully come out with a season 2 really soon. The ending was such a cliffhanger, and I need to know exactly what happens next. I would definitely suggest this webcomic to everyone.
If you ever had questions about life, Trash Bird is your … bird (I’ve no clue what this bird’s gender is, so they will just be Trash Bird.). This bird has lots of fun with their friend, Pink Bird, and completely blows the mind of their therapist. Why are they called Trash Bird, you may ask. Their home is a small pile of trash. Half of the time, I feel like Trash Bird is the bird version of me: loves food, naps and confusing everyone. This webcomic is a bunch of shorts that will subtly at times attack your funny bone. This bird is truly life.
This the super duper adorable anime Tsuredure Children, you meet – I want to say – eight different couples with completely different stories. At first, I thought it would be annoying switching between at least four relationships every single episode, but all it did was make me want to watch more. When you leave a couple, you are left on a cliff-hanger or with a major case of the feels. Every single relationship is different, which also makes it really interesting. If it was the same relationship, every single time, it would not be as cute as it is. I feel that this show did everything right. This show is the right amount of cute and angst from all the feels. This show is for every lover of romance ever.
When your co-workers are getting on your nerves, it time to sing some death metal, like Retsuko in Aggressive Retsuko (ONA). This Netflix original show had everything (in my Stephan-voice): cute, fuzzy animals, horrible bosses, and that annoying co-worker that never gets anything done because she is too busy opening a jar. This anime is a take on how you would probably deal with the stress of work if you were an animated red panda. This is based on the original shorts, but in this version, there is an actual plot. (Don’t you just love plot). And this show is decently short at just ten 15-minutes episodes that justs gives death metal some life.
