Nostalgia Channel:

I love a lot of the cartoons from the 90’s, but lets be honest they hardly hold up today. All over my friends list on Facebook I’m getting all these messages about Splat the channel that brings back all the 90’s Nickolodeon classics that helped make the channel what the channel… used to be. I love all of these shows, but I’m not really going to go back and watch them all again. I mean is anyone? You can give the excuse “Well I want my kids to grow up on the classics.” But that’s all they are is classics. If you really loved these shows odds are you remember the episodes pretty well already, do you really need a channel dedicated to shows you’re no longer watching? I guess the channel will make more sense when my generation is stuck in retirement homes or something who knows.

Home Sweet Home:

I don’t know, I don’t have an excuse for this one. I was at work and all I could think about was wanted to make a strip about birds. I hate birds I think they suck. So transitioning to our review which is an odd choice considering I only watched it because my kid wanted to watch it.

Pokemon: Zoroark: The Master of Illusions is the 13th Pokemon movie in the abundantly long Pokemon anime series. I stopped watching Pokemon somewhere before Sinnoh region as Pokemon the anime wasn’t that interesting. Even though I’ve felt connected with the Pokemon games recently I’m not entirely on board with the Pokemon animes, but I do watch them on occasion with my daughter as it’s something we can both connect with. So how does the 13th Pokemon movie hold up?

So this movie is set somewhere in the Crystal/Diamond era of the Pokemon series (I’m only guessing because the female protagonist is the same as the one in the games). I’ll be honest the only characters I knew were Ash, Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny, Team Rocket, and Brock. So Ash the never aging ten year old and his two friends are headed to Crown city to watch a “Boccer” game (which is like soccer with Pokemon). Behind the scenes a man with the ability to see into the future has kidnapped a Zorua and Zoroark from the Unova region (I only know this because it’s the region from Black/White which I’m currently playing) to cause havoc in Crown City. Crown City has recently recovered from a 20 year drought and the time traveling Pokemon Celebi has finally returned. During an attempt to wreck havoc to the city Zorua escapes and ends up meeting with Ash and the gang. Ash and his overly annoying comrades then try to get Zorua and Zoroark back together.

So on the positive notes I think the story is alright for a childrens movie. I mean I loved the first Pokemon movie for its dark story and the third one was pretty good as well with its dramatic story as well. I think this story has a decent amount of drama in it, and I did find myself liking little Zorua in the film. Even though the story is supposed to take place in the Crystal/Diamond games I really appreciated the all the Johto references in the movie. The first character you see Ash fight against is the main character from the Gold/Silver games. The legends in this film are Celebi and the three legendary dogs Raikou, Suicuine, and Entei which were some of my favorites from those games. Even though some of the effects were very cheesy I thought some of the fighting in this movie was decent, I mean it isn’t epic, but it is Pokemon fighting Pokemon.

Yay let’s talk about all the bad things in this movie. You know I don’t want to gripe too much, but these are my two problems, which ultimately goes into one single problem. Ash is a freaking idiot. I’ve always hated Ash even when I was a kid. Ash only does one smart thing in the movie, everything else seems like an accident or someone else fixes things for him. Also he’s supposed to be a Pokemon trainer, but he doesn’t ever use any of his Pokemon outside of Pikachu. He sends out a fire monkey Pokemon for like a minute that doesn’t do anything and then immediately brings it back in his pokeball. Even Ashes friends are smart enough to use their other Pokemon even when their LIVES were on the line. I don’t know who Dawn is, but I already like her better than Ash.

I’ve only seen seven¬†Pokemon movies and honestly this one isn’t that bad. I mean Ash is just really stupid, but the other characters are fun. The battles are entertaining and the story is actually kind of sweet. I would have liked for a darker ending like in the Pokemon Heroes movie, but whatever make the kids happy I guess. If you’re a Pokemon fan you’ll like this movie and a lot of the nostalgia from the older Pokemon series with a splash of new (well I guess this movie isn’t that old really). I think it’s better than some of the other Pokemon movies I’ve already seen.

5/10: Alright

Final Thoughts: Better than Pokemon Heroes.

Ain’t No Tang:

I had a run in with Sunny Delight not too long ago. I used to love the stuff back when I was a kid, but now that I’m older it just tastes awful. I’m not sure if the company has just gone down hill with the quality or what, but the crap just tastes awful now. I was always a fan of how extreme the commercials for Sunny Delight used to be, but the opening of the fridge commercial is still one of my most remembered commercials from the nineties.
