Thoughts on Logan Trailer 2

Posted by Toa Smoke Monster , Jan 19 2017 · 43 views
Logan, Wolverine, X-Men
So a new trailer for Logan was release today. Said trailer is below. I will note that there is somewhat of a spoiler in it for those who read the comics that involves one of the characters. If you want to see this film knowing as little about it as possible, then don't watch the trailer or read anymore. otherwise, let's get on with this.

While I liked the first Logan trailer a little more than this one, I still think this is a good one too. I think the biggest reveal in it is that the girl is Laura Kinney aka X-23. It was speculated that she was this character when the first trailer was revealed, but this one all but confirms it.

I'm interested in seeing what her origin story is, and how much influence it will take from the comics. Because in said comics, she is a 'clone-daughter' of Logan. I wonder if she will have the same backstory here, or if she'll just be a Mutant similar to Logan and that they just put adamantium on her bones. We'll just have to wait for the film to come out and see.

The other thing that really caught my attention was the fact that the X-Men comics exist in this universe. I'm not sure how I feel about them existing in these movies. But if people with powers actually did exist in the real world, someone probably would make a comic book based on them. :P So I guess it could make sense for these to be a thing in the X-Men movies. Again, we'll just have to wait and see what Logan does with this plot point.

And as with the first trailer, there is a red band version of this trailer out there too. While the violence in it is the same as in the green band, it does have some adult language, which is why I won't link it here. But you can find it on YouTube if you want to see it.

Overall, this trailer has made me even more excited to see this. Like I said, I thought the first one was better. But this is still a good trailer on its own. March 3rd can't get here soon enough. B-)

What do you all think of this trailer? Will you be seeing Logan when it comes out?


A Late Nintendo Switch Entry

Posted by Toa Smoke Monster , Jan 16 2017 · 44 views
Nintendo, Switch, Thoughts
I know this might be a few days late, but sometimes life just makes you delay stuff. :P

Anyways, a lot of info was revealed about the Nintendo Switch last week, and I liked a lot of what I heard. Many of its games look really interesting to me. Especially The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind and Super Mario Odyssey. For the Zelda series, I've only played A Link to the Past, A Link Between Worlds, and half of Majora's Mask for the 3DS. So it would be cool to play another Zelda game, and BotW could be a good game to try. As for Odyssey, it just looks like it will be fun. Plus, I want to see why Bowser is wearing a suit. :P

I was also excited to hear that Minecraft and Skyrim were going to be brought to the system as well. I haven't play either of these games, and this could give me a chance to do so.

It does kind of stink that we'll have to play to go online with the system. But if it means that the servers will be better, then I can live with it. The other nitpick I have with it is that there wasn't a Metroid game announced in the line up of games. I know it was a long shot, but I still wanted to another Metroid game to come out. Hopefully we'll see one soon.

Overall, I'm excited for the Switch. I'm definitely thinking about getting it, though I know I won't be on launch day. The earliest I might get one is in the summer if possible, because I don't want to deal with crazy people trying to get it as well. :P

P.S. And if I do get it, I will get the one with the grey controller. I'm not a fan of the red and blue controller. It just doesn't look as good to me.

What do you all think of the Nintendo Switch? And are you going to get one?

Mario Maker 3DS

Nintendo, 3DS, Mario Maker, Mario and 1 more...
So I finally got Mario Maker 3DS the other day and I've been playing it whenever I've gotten some free time. And I've come to one conclusion:

I'm going to need to play it a LOT to become good at playing these levels. :P

Seriously, I'm not that great at playing them. I've only done created levels that were marked as 'easy' so far and some of them I haven't been able to complete. And when I played the levels that come with the game, I probably lost 15 lives before getting to the first Bowser stage. :P

But I'm not complaining about this, as I've enjoyed the challenges so far and the feeling you get when you finally beat a level that's been giving you trouble. And while I haven't played that many levels yet, many of the ones I have seen have been really cool. I'm amazed at some of the stuff people have created with these levels.

I hope to one day make levels that people will really enjoy. Though I haven't started making any yet, as I want to get better at playing the game before I start making levels myself. But for now, I'm going to keep playing levels and seeing what people have made. :)

Does anyone else have this game for the 3DS? And if so, what do you think of it?

Note: if you have not seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and don't want to see spoilers, DON'T READ THIS!

Note 2: I wanted to type this up and post it last month, but I hadn't gotten around to finishing it until now. That's why this is late.

So Star Wars's first one-off story, at least one to have a cinematic release, came out last month. And while I did really enjoy it, does it hold up for the other movies? Here's what I though about it. Spoilers are beyond this point, just to give another warning.

Well, if there was any doubts at all that this movie was a myth, this trailer crushes them.

I really don't have much to say about this trailer, except that emoji has the same amount of excitement for this movie as I do. :P

I really try not to judge movies based only on their trailers, but I just don't see how this movie could be good. At least not yet, anyways. But I guess we'll find out if it is good or not when it is released next year.

What do you guys think about this upcoming movie?

Thoughts on War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

Posted by Toa Smoke Monster , Dec 13 2016 · 80 views
Thoughts, trailer and 2 more...

Man, a LOT of trailers have come out in the past week. Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Transformers: The Last Knight, Fast and Furious 8, etc. And along with those came this trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes.

I've enjoyed the first two movies of this rebooted franchise. In fact, I think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the movie before this one, is one of the best sequels ever made in a trilogy. The ending of that movie left me excited for WftPotA, and this trailer only fuels that excitement.

I think that the tone and music in this are great. I'm also really excited to see Woody Harrelson in this, as I think he's a good actor and will make an interesting opponent for Caesar and his fellow Apes.

Overall, this movie is high on my list of movies that I want to see in 2017. I just hope it lives up to its predecessors.

What do you all think of this trailer? Will you be seeing War for the Planet of the Apes?


Thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser Trailer

Posted by Toa Smoke Monster , Dec 08 2016 · 41 views
Vol. 2, Marvel and 2 more...
Two Notes. One, I know this trailer came out a few days ago. I just didn't feel like making a blog post about it until now. :P And two, the trailer has a word in it that is not BZP appropriate, so I can't post it here. But you can find it on Youtube easy enough.

As for what I thought of the new trailer, I liked it. As with the first 'teaser trailer,' this one doesn't really give us an indication on what the story is going to be about. It's either characters talking among themselves and just clips of actions scenes. I don't have a problem with this at all, since the story isn't spoiled in this as trailers for other movies have done.

I do have two concerns though. One is Drax's character. It definitely seems like he's going to have a bigger comedic role in this one than in the first movie. I'm okay with him being a little more comical, but I just hope it isn't overdone. I hope he still has some dramatic material to work with in this films's story.

My other concern is Baby Groot. I watched someone on Youtube talk about both trailers for this movie, and he brought up that Marvel could keep Groot in his baby form in it to help sell Baby Groot toys. I can see people wanting to own such a toy, so I could see Marvel doing something like this. But as long as the character is used right in the story, I don't have a problem with him being a baby for the majority or all of the film. I just hope he's grown up by the time he shows up in another Marvel movie after this one.

But even with those concerns, I'm still really excited to see this movie. I really enjoyed the first Guardians of the Galaxy, and I hope that this one will be just as enjoyable. B-)

What did you guys think of this new trailer?


Thoughts on Transformers: The Last Knight Teaser Trailer

Posted by Toa Smoke Monster , Dec 06 2016 · 86 views
teaser, trailer, Transformers and 2 more...

Yep, another one of these is coming out next summer.

And Michael Bay directed it, so expect tons of explosions. :P

Joking aside, I actually think this is a decent trailer. I don't like the song that plays in it though, particularly with the singer and the way his voice sounds in this. But having Anthony Hopkins do a voice over for it is cool IMO. Plus it's ending is good too. Seeing Bumblebee take on Optimus Prime could be very interesting, if the build up to it is done right. Who knows, maybe one of them won't make it out of this one.

Overall, I'm not as excited to see this next year as I am Guardians 2, Logan, Spider-Man, and other movies, and this trailer doesn't really help to raise my interest in it. That being said, I've always gone to see these movies for their action scenes, because I think this Transformers franchise actually has some really cool action sequences. Especially in Dark of the Moon and Age of Extinction. So I'll probably will end up seeing this, just to see what crazy action scenes will be in it. B-)

What do you guys think of this trailer? Will you be seeing The Last Knight? And do you think that this franchise needed a fifth movie?

A Smart Phone Disaster Averted

Disaster, Averted, Cell Phone
So remember that IPhone 6S that I got a few months ago? The same one that was the first smart phone I've ever owned?

Yeah, well, I dropped it in a mud puddle today.

I was walking around in a park looking for Pokemon on Pokemon Go (because I still play that) when I lost my footing for a second and my phone flew out of my hand and into the puddle. Thankfully, the mud only got on my case. Nothing was damaged or ruined on the phone. In fact, the mud got almost on all the back of it except for where the camera lens were located. If that isn't a miracle, I don't know what is. :)

But like I said, my phone wasn't damaged from the incident. Though now I'm going to be a little more careful when trekking through muddy grass looking for Pokemon. :P
