The Morrowind Star
Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. The journey of Vagnar Nota. The Morrowind named Vangar Nota felt as if his journey in defeating the Noxus Ruler known as Omega Blxst was finally completed in a cosmos unlike our own, set in a time after the big bang event that created sustainable life for what would be known as the period of human race's existence. The loss of Vangar Nota's master, Klay-Den Oso, meant that victory came at a high cost. Klay-Den Oso was killed in battle with Blxst, and the Morrowind prophecy of great balance was at stake.
Filmmaking Lessons from “The Ocean’s Trilogy” — ‘Ocean’s Eleven’
Ocean’s Eleven was released in 2001. The world was kind of in a weird place. It felt like everything was on fire. I was nine years old and I was at the Regal Theater in New Rochelle. I was watching one of the coolest movies I have ever seen. George Clooney and Brad Pitt, the epitome of gentlemen thieves, were on the screen looking like absolute rock stars; movie royalty. At the end of the film, the villain, Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), a ruthless mogul and casino owner, has just called the SWAT team to stop thieves from robbing his vault. The thieves escape and the SWAT team leaves. Terry Benedict stands in the middle of the vault and tries to piece together what just happened. His second in command asks him on the walkie-talkie, “What happened to all that money?” We cut to the SWAT team walking through the casino floor, bags in hand. One of them flips up their helmet to wipe the sweat off his brow. It’s Brad Pitt.

My thoughts on Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero (Spoilers!)
So a couple of days ago I finally got the chance to watch Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, and I gotta say that I loved that movie from start to finish. I watched Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z growing up and this movie took me on a huge nostalgia trip. It also gave me a decent amount of satisfaction because the primary focus of the movie was on Gohan and Piccolo! Honestly, at this point I can't think of I didn't like about the movie. Let's get into why!
Futurama's Connections To The Simpsons: How Deep Do They Go?
Next to The Simpsons, Futurama is arguably one of the — if not the best — animated television series on the air. Matt Groening and David Cohen helmed both series, which we can attribute to the overall success of each respective show. The duo debuted the first episode of their futuristic comedy on March 28, 1999, launching a whole new story set in the year 3000, but that's not technically true.

Observations On The Villains of Cobra Kai
Introduction Although I am enjoying Cobra Kai and am halfway through series five, I am hardly an expert on the whole thing, but I love how the series is developing. Its genesis is in the Karate Kid films of the eighties and two of the protagonists in those films (Ralph Macchio - Daniel LaRusso and William Zabka - Johnnie Lawrence) got together to develop “Cobra Kai” for Youtube.
The Invitation has gotten mixed reviews, some love it, some thought it was just okay and others simply didn’t understand it. Yes I went there, if you didn’t find anything to like about this film then you missed something.
My Review on Three Robots
"Love, Death, and Robots: Three Robots & Three Robots: Exit Strategies." Spoilers ahead! The other day I came across a funny animation called three robots that were part of a show called “Love, Death, and Robots.“ Many shorts range from horror, sci-fi, romance, and comedy. You can find this show on Netflix, the story was based on the short story written originally by John Scalzi, but was adapted by writer Philip Gelatt. The one I love so much and want to talk about is called Three Robots. A YouTuber channel named story recapped caught my attention when he explained the comedy/Science Fiction short film. I’ll include the link since I got some help from watching this video.

House of the Dragon
