A Very April Update

Oh no, is it time again for a filler post? I guess so.

In my defense, I will be away for a few days, so I figured I’d drop a little update about what I plan on writing when I get back. Maybe I’ll even write about my trip. Hopefully writing my plans down will help me get to them post-haste once I’m back (because history has proven that to be the case with me, right?).

Anyway, I’ve recently seen both Shazam! and the live-action Dumbo, and plan on reviewing both. I’m hoping to catch Missing Link as well, and if I do, I’ll review that too! Also, with Avengers: Endgame nearly upon us, I’ll try to get around to reviewing the other three Avengers films during the lead up.

Yes, I also plan on finally, actually and for real getting to my movie and video game awards for 2018 when I get back. I also have a few extra game reviews in mind, but I may wait to get to them until May, depending on how quickly I get the other stuff I mentioned done.

And as I’ve mentioned in the past, I really, really hope to start doing both TV reviews, and top 5/10 lists. I have a small handful of TV series in mind. As for the lists, I think I’ll start with a ranking of the modern Disney animated features (Princess and the Frog to today), which I’ve made no secret is my favorite generation of Disney animated features. After that I’ll do the logical next step and make my list of all-time favorite Disney animated films (spoiler, there will be some similarities between both lists). I might make a new edition of my ranking of the Pixar films as well, now that they’ve reached the twenty film milestone and have Toy Story 4 in the near future.I guess Kingdom Hearts 3 got me in a really ‘Disney’ mood as of late (hey, that game did something right).

Of course, I plan to do my long-promised lists of Best Nintendo Systems, Nintendo Franchises, and things of that nature.

Naturally, I don’t plan on cranking these out the day I get return, but within April/May-ish, and maybe June. For the record, I’m actually only going to be gone a couple of days. I don’t know why I’m making it sound like I’m going to be gone a while. Maybe I just wanted an excuse to write something?

So I hope you enjoy what I have in store when I make my triumphant return! I have some even bigger ideas planned to expand my brand (rhymes). But because I have a bad tendency to promise too many things I can’t deliver in a reasonable amount of time, I’m going to hold off on revealing them just yet. But stay tuned. And stay beautiful.

Sorry for the filler.

Or, you know, he could just be some guy who loves video games, animations and cinema who just wanted to write about such things.

  1. I really liked Shazam! It was a very clever take on the superhero genre. Granted, the character has existed since the late 1930s, but it was interesting seeing an interpretation of him for the modern era.

    I’m also proud to say that I’ve secured my ticket for Avengers: Endgame, which means I’ll be seeing it opening weekend. In the meantime, I intend to review every Avengers film leading up to it.

    I myself have been drafting a top 10 list for my favorite films of 2018. Hopefully, I’ll have it done by next week.

    1. Yeah, I’ll try to review Shazam! and Dumbo as soon as I come back, followed by my awards. It is weird that Shazam has remained relatively obscure despite being one of the older superheroes. Personally, I infinitely prefer the character to Superman.

      Yeah, I’m also seeing Endgame opening night. Lucky I got my ticket. Looking forward to it. And I’ll try to crank out those Avengers reviews as well, even if it means I have to revisit Age of Ultron…

      Looking forward to your top 10 2018 films list. Sorry/not sorry to say mine will mostly consist of obvious mainstream picks. Rough, busy year for me in 2018, didn’t get around to many smaller movies.
