* Remember those cute shorts before ''Film/{{Pokemon}}'' movies with Pikachu and friends getting into shenanigans, with no humans around whatsoever? Well, to celebrate the release of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' Part 9, Creator/DavidProduction released a series of SuperDeformed shorts [[SpiritualSuccessor admittedly inspired by them]] featuring [[FightingSpirit Stands]] from throughout the main timeline interacting. They are [[LighterAndSofter absolutely adorable]] and [[WidgetSeries often surreal]], with [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventureJotaro Star Platinum]] being the central character [[WolverinePublicity as usual]] and [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventureDio The World]] often showing up to PokeThePoodle. PokemonSpeak is in full effect, with [[{{Kiai}} Stand cries]] being the only spoken lines; the range of emotions Creator/DaisukeOno can inflect a simple "ora" with is impressive. There's even [[AscendedMeme a short referencing the]] [[MemeticMutation infamous]] [[Creator/{{CLAMP}} Jouta Kujo doujinshi]], in which Hierophant Green [[EggSitting tries to hatch an egg]]. The shorts' cute and highly distinctive characters, wacky plots, and lack of dialogue earned them a large PeripheryDemographic of [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids young children]] on streaming sites.

* To say that the {{Xenofiction}} and paleontology communities were skeptical when a film adaptation of ''Literature/RaptorRed'' was announced would be an understatement. Fears were that Hollywood would [[{{Disneyfication}} make it into a generic kiddie talking animal movie]] like ''WesternAnimation/WalkingWithDinosaurs''. [[TaintedByThePreview The trailer did little to assuage that]] when it featured narration by Creator/ScarlettJohansson and confirmed the film to use CGI creatures in live-action environments, like that film and ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'', although the designs for the ''Utahraptor'' and the ''Struthiomimus'' were praised for [[ScienceMarchesOn having feathers]]. When the film finally came out, though, [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail it was a different story]]. Like ''WesternAnimation/SpiritStallionOfTheCimarron'', and true to the book, there were no {{TalkingAnimal}}s whatsoever, with only spare narration when something just could not be conveyed by the dinosaurs' body language and PaintingTheMedium to convey scents. The [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic score]] and [[SceneryPorn environments]] only added to the experience. The only complaints were that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids children wanted to see the dinosaur movie, and were promptly terrified]] by the aversions of HerbivoresAreFriendly and CarnivoresAreMean. It ''really'' pushed the [[AnimationAgeGhetto PG rating]] it got because [[AudienceAlienatingPremise not many adults would go to see a dinosaur movie that wasn't part of the]] ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' franchise.

* I was bummed when Creator/{{Disney}} decided against a third Franchise/{{Tron}} film, but when I heard they handed Creator/BioWare the chance to make a game ''and'' gave them a very long leash of creative control? Well, now we've got something interesting. First off, we have their crazy-good world building and a massive codex (half of it written up by Lisberger)! The soundtrack? A CrazyAwesome list of techno artists signed on; I had no idea Music/DaftPunk would not just score the BarBrawl level, but be {{GuestStarPartyMember}}s. The four-point KarmaMeter is pretty innovative, scoring not just "good or evil" but also "obedience or rebellion towards Users." Hell, just the fact that ''you're playing as Tron,'' and that all of the paths can make ''perfect'' sense for the character direction, as this is post-''Legacy.'' Yes, they got Boxleitner, but...spoiler here, they got Cindy Morgan, too! Yes, playing Yori, and boy is is a really good explanation as to why she wasn't in ''Legacy'' or ''Uprising.'' And if that doesn't peg the HSQ high enough...they got Rebecca Romjin and Jason Cottle - looks like Videogame/TronTwoPointOh is totally canon again! The capper? Creator/ElijahWood. YES, RoleReprisal. Okay, if you play the "evil rebellion" path, you are totally going to feel like a heel executing Jet, especially if you convince Beck to do it, but Alan Bradley as your FinalBoss as you murder your own creator and set yourself up as ruler of all of cyberspace, controlling the human world? Holy. Shit. (Okay, so there's a little [[VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine Conrad]] coming through when Alan-1 is berating you during the boss fight - understandable). At least the canonical "good and obedient" path is pure Heartwarming; EverybodyLives, the Program and human worlds are in harmony, the Simulation Sea is restored, and Tron and Yori are brought into the human world to see it for themselves, and to help teach humanity how to care for the Programs at the side of their human family. Finally, a proper Disney ending for the franchise.

** Oh, hell. When I heard Del Toro was ''sharing'' directing credit with Jonathan Frakes and Greg Weisman was taking point on the script, I was on board. Talk about one hell of a team-up!
* Speaking of Frakes...RoleReprisal as David Freaking Xanatos on Series/OnceUponATime? Okay, so Emma and Eliza teaming up to kick some serious butt over Macbeth's attempt to nuke New York? That was a great start. But watching Xanatos and Rumple play ''every'' character in the series like cheap fiddles over what turned out to be a glorified bar bet was not just funny, it was freaking awesome, especially when Rumple had to hand Xanatos the dollar wager in front of ''everyone''.

* If you thought Hitoshi Ariga's take on ''Franchise/MegaMan'', ''Manga/MegaManMegamix'', was awesome, you should check out his take on ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' called ''Sonic the Hedgehog:Island Adventures'', which adapts the main [[{{UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis}} Genesis/Mega Drive]] Sonic games, and like his Mega Man Classic manga, Ariga's take on the Sonic Genesis quadrilogy expands upon the games and gives Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Eggman (Robotnik in the English translation, provided by Creator/IDWPublishing) deeper character development and more meaning to their motives and goals, but be warned, like his Mega Man manga, Ariga's take on the Blue Blur doesn't pull any punches in terms of stakes and isn't for younger Sonic fans or the faint of heart despite being marketed as a {{Shonen}} manga! In addition, Ariga collaborated with Tyson Hesse for manga that adapts and expands upon ''[[{{VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD}} Sonic CD]]'' (''Sonic the Hedgehog:Time Warp Madness''), ''VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix'' (''Knuckles the Echidna/Espio the Chameleon:Chaos Ring Insanity''), the Modern Sonic games (''Sonic the Hedgehog:Water Monsters, Faker Hedgehogs and the Black Arms, Oh My!'', which adapts and expands upon ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' as well as ''Sonic the Hedgehog:From Gaia to Infinity'', which adapts and expands upon ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' and ''VideoGame/SonicForces''.) and various spinoffs (''Sonic the Hedgehog:Pinball and Other Adventures''). In addition, Sonic:Pinball and Other Adventures is far more lighthearted than the rest of Ariga!Sonic Canon with stories that are gauranteed to make you laugh!
** But, the best (and most intense) of Ariga's Sonic manga by far is ''Sonic the Hedgehog:Robotnik Finale'', with [[spoiler:Eggman finally solving the equation that will help him defeat his enemies once and for all! Eggman manages to lure [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Natural Harmonia Robotnik and his Zekrom, the legendary Dragon of Ideals]] to Sonic's world (Mobius in the IDW translation and Earth in the original Japanese version.), and Eggman sics his nephew and his dragon on the Sonic cast, who are [[CurbStompBattle promptly defeated]], leaving Sonic and Shadow as the last ones standing. Knowing they're cornered, Sonic and Shadow attempt to go Super, only for Eggman to steal the Chaos Emeralds, giving them to N, who manages to transform into his [[SuperMode Super Form]] with Zekrom being powered up due to it's bond with it's chosen Hero, but Shadow freezes time for the Hero of Ideals and his uncle in order to get the Emeralds back with Sonic and Shadow transforming into Super Sonic and Super Shadow with an AWESOME battle between the hedgehogs and N and Zekrom commences with the hedgehogs barely winning against their strongest opponent yet! In the end, Eggman runs away from the scene, deciding he's had enough and accepting his final defeat in the process. And like his Canon counterpart, N decides to turn over a new leaf with the Sonic cast accepting his apologies, traveling the world in search of a new, more heroic purpose, thus ending the struggle between Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik forever (In this continuity at least.)]]!

The gameplay was superb, adding some very nice twists to the old engine. And, in spite of it's general silliness, it still had some very dramatic and heartwarming moments.

The best [[Film/LawrenceofArabia David Lean]] film that [[Film/DrZhivago David Lean]] never made, ''Star Wars: The Chosen One'' united wrenching battle scenes with terse, literate dialogue and a Shakespearean grasp of personal/political tragedy. Anchored by Sir Christian Bale in his final performance (as the conniving Palpatine), the movie focuses on the future emperor’s tense battle for Anakin Skywalker’s soul, pitting ruthless maneuvering, passionate, inspired rhetoric, and genuine fatherly affection against the influence of a reeling, compromised Jedi Order, whose stoic ideals may finally have walled it off not only from the possibilities of evil, but of goodness.\\

Now somebody please tell me, why did it took this long for them to finally introduce the Many Worlds Theory in the mythology? Is Creator/JJAbrams the only one allowed to use it now?

* I am completely addicted to the new ''Toys/MilkyWayAndTheGalaxyGirls'' show on Creator/CartoonNetwork! It's so girly, but you know what? I don't care! The characters are unique and memorable(my favorite is [[{{Metalhead}} Pluto]], but [[GenkiGirl Mars]] is a total riot and the relationship between [[TheWoobie the Moon]] and [[ParentalNeglect Mother Earth]] is [[TearJerker heartbreaking]]), the action is crazy fun, the writing and humor is top notch as usual, and the music is amazing, from the [[EarWorm incredibly catchy theme song]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome to the badass score!]] I don't wanna spoil some of the real good lines for you, but the show is almost as [[MemeticMutation insanely quotable as]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]], Creator/LaurenFaust's other big hit show. You can watch the whole Season 1 on Youtube and I, personally, cannot wait for Season 2.

* I am completely addicted to the new ''Toys/MilkyWayAndTheGalaxyGirls'' show on Creator/CartoonNetwork! It's so girly, but you know what? I don't care! The characters are unique and memorable(my favorite is [[{{Metalhead}} Pluto]], but [[GenkiGirl Mars]] is a total riot and the relationship between [[TheWoobie the Moon]] and [[ParentalNeglect Mother Earth]] is [[TearJerker heartbreaking]]), the action is crazy fun, the writing and humor is top notch as usual, and the music is amazing, from the [[EarWorm incredibly catchy theme song]] [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic to the badass score!]] I don't wanna spoil some of the real good lines for you, but the show is almost as [[MemeticMutation insanely quotable as]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]], Creator/LaurenFaust's other big hit show. You can watch the whole Season 1 on Youtube and I, personally, cannot wait for Season 2.



* Did anyone see the new ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode were Rarity got pregnant with Spike's child? It sounds {{squick}}y, but it was fun to watch. Especially the part where Spike ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome fights off a giant spider]]'' [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments to protect his pregnant lover]], and that [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome song]] Spike and Rarity sang to each other after Rarity gave birth, that was both [[EarWorm catchy]] and [[TearJerker sad]] at the same time. Also, the twist ending, [[spoiler:where it reveals that Applejack is pregnant too]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny'' [[XMeetsY Meets]] ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' sounds like a CrackFic of the highest order. And yet, strangely, it ''works''. Everyone stays in character, and while Bugs is his typical KarmicTrickster self, the story remains more or less intact. Definitely one to see!
