Popular video games turned into live-action films has been a favorite thing to do. Two films are getting released Detective Pikachu Pokémon and Sonic the Hedgehog. In my opinion, Detective Pikachu Pokémon looks more promising because the characters seem so realistic, almost like they could actually exist. There was so much detail on the Pokémon—everything from the hairs, the skin, even the eyes. This was possible thanks to RJ Palmer, a concept artist at Ubisoft. He used real animals for inspiration, and when he draws, RJ Palmer said he uses a Wacom tablet and Adobe Photoshop. RJ Palmer has been doing concept art for characters and the environment, which is why he helps come up with the initial design for Pokémon. The other reason I think the film was great is because it's not starting from the very beginning like other productions have when making a film. The story of the film begins from another, in fact, an actual game that is called Detective Pikachu Pokémon. It follows a guy name Tim Goodman who teams up with a Pikachu that is more intelligent than any other Pikachu, and yes Tim can understand him, just like the film. The main Pokémon protagonist Pikachu is voiced by Ryan Reynolds. I thought that was amazing because I felt like I was watching Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds plays the Marvel comic "Merc with a month" character Deadpool). The film has a slapstick comedy feel to it, and it has the right message in the movie but you got to see the movie to see what I mean.
After watching the film Tolkien, I have never so badly wanted to be a writer and get my graphic novel to publish. The film was an inspiration, and I did have a few things in common with Tolkien. Just like Tolkien, I am an outcast, I have a creative imagination, my writing also has to do fantasy (but I too do comedy and a little horror), and finally, we both went to a university.
It has begun season nine of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I won’t lie I am excited, but sad as well because it is the last season of this fantastic show, I remember the first episode I watched I got hooked, the stories were designed to touch on subjects that kids and adults come across on every day like peer pressure, judging others, and believing in one’s true self. I like the design and personality not to mention the unique characters. I’m not just talking about the ponies, I’m also talking about the other creatures both good and evil like the monsters, the changelings, and the animals that came from the Everfree Forest.
d.(FYI This is based on the Graphic Novel that I am currently writing called Borges-13, and it's what the Protagonist is saying when he saves his world from an enemy from another galaxy that was thought to be dead.)
The day started out normal like any other day. I stopped at my favorite gas station to get some coffee, then headed to the school where I studied and worked. I had a sense something was wrong. First, I thought it was because finals were on the way, so I just brushed it off. The news of Chester Bennington's death came from my fiancé Ian; he asked if I was okay. I wasn't sure why he was asking and told me to check the web. My first thought maybe a terrorist attack nearby since they were going on a lot since 2016. My heart sank when I saw it online: "Linkin Park frontman found dead," even till this day, I still feel like it isn't real. This event was a significant impact because I felt alone and lost thinking my muse was gone, my fuel, and my source.
Just recently I saw a film called Alita: Battle Angel. The movie was terrific. The story was great and the special effects were off the wall. The film is set several centuries in the future and the Earth became imbalanced because of a war called, “The Fall.” (The whole planet became somewhat of a recovering post-apocalyptic world.) The abandoned Alita is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido, a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic (which also happens to be his home). When Alita awakens, she has no memory of who she is, nor does Alita have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City with the help of a boy named Hugo who happens to fall in love with her. Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious past. He has a good reason why. I saw in the end credits that the film was based off of a manga except it was called Battle Angel. I was surprised that the movie was great. This is because in the past there have been many anime and manga turned in to live action, and they have not done well in theater or direct to video. I can name a few, but let’s stick with Alita: Battle Angel.
