Ben E. King (1938-2015)

Ben. E. King was an African American singer as he sang the song, “Stand By Me”. That was in the movie based on the novel by Stephen King as it showed how friendship can be. For River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O’Connell as they were the hero boys in that movie.

His song was number 1, and a classic better than any song there is in this world, no matter what. Even for those four boys in that classic movie.

I just couldn’t believe people can just forget him, and just leave him dead. But I found this out, and I am sure he must’ve had an okay life.

He is in heaven now, with River Phoenix as they are listening to that song now. Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman and Jerry O’Connell will be next when they get old and pass away. These three can know of Ben E. King, but they’ll remember him, River and the song they listened to over the summer of their lives.

It was the best song of their lives that they listened to. In the 50’s and 80’s. Ben E. King’s masterpiece of “Stand By Me”.

Pokémon 8th movie: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew

In September 2014, Teletoon aired this anime movie with my own eyes as I’ve heard about this movie and it was great!! I saw this with my own eyes as I rate this, 8 1/2 out of 10 stars. Close to 9/10 stars with a bit of percents to this rate. And I just love this movie.

This took placed in the Pokémon: Advanced Battle season.

Long ago, in the Pokémon world in a distant land, before a war broke out, a warrior and a Lucario that can talk telepathically arose to fight the forces of darkness and putting an end to the war. Armed with all their strengths, and the powers of aura and righteousness, they made their effort to save the kingdom. The warrior was sacrificed as his Lucario was placed in his staff. It was the only way they can make their righteousness.

Years later, centuries maybe, Ash, his Pikachu, May, Max, Brock and all of their Pokémon have made a visit to the palace as they wore wonderful costumes. May wore the best dress as Max was like a squire. There was Pikachu like a jester, and how Ash was like the same guardian warrior thar was lost years ago.

They had a wonderful ball at a dance. I really enjoyed how May danced wonderfully. If Plutarch Heavensbee were in this by Phillip Seymour Hoffman, she would enjoy dancing with him. Team Rocket was there somehow as they wanted to enjoy.

However, with their Pokémon playing, and a agent spying, a Mew came and took Pikachu and Meowth to the mountain far away. This made them surprised and how the Lucario appeared from the staff. He realized things have changed, many years later.

Discussing with the queen and all this, Ash was like the same guardian who sacrificed himself in the legend. Because of his looks maybe and the costume he wore. Then came that friend who was the agent as she became a good friend to Ash and his friends. She wanted to solve the mystery of Mew, as Brock knew that girl. He was falling in live with him. Finally, a rescue mission was on as they set off to find Pikachu in the mountain far away.

They wouldn’t give up. When they made camp, some footage was from the series premiere of “Pokémon” on the first episode from the first season as it was aired in 1997. “Pokémon: I Choose You!” as that it was the title, and two more episodes were the series premiere of that. It was worldwide when this did, along with other episodes.

Lucario and Ash did had a fight, but felt sorry later. When they reached the mountain and climbing it, avoiding traps and everything, they finally found Pikachu as they met Meowth and Mew. Jesse and James came along quietly as they wanted Meowth back.

When there was a problem to the mountain, Lucario sacrificed himself as they saved the mountain and all of it’s Pokémon. It had a wonderful end as they made it back, as the queen thanked Ash and all of his friends for everything they did. While the credits role, it showed what happened after that as they played the song, “We Will Meet Again”. Almost similar to “We’ll Meet Again” from the ending of “Dr. Strangelove”.

But I am very proud on this anime movie and how Teletoon aired this. Like what I said on rating this, 8 1/2 out of 10 stars.

Che (Part 1 & Part 2)

This ‘C’ average two part movie, that had ever filmed in 2008, showed the entire adventures of Ernest ‘Che’ Guevara. Who lead a revolution in Cuba and Bolivia. He had armies and friend that had fought in those battles as they took the chances on fighting.

Che was played by Benicio de Toro as he did an amazing job. It is boring on how they are speaking in Cuban, but it showed how Che did it when he fought in those two revolutions.

There have been battles that they have fought as Che fought with honor. He died after the two revolutions, but his legacy will be remained forever.

I heard that story when I was in Cuba once, as I am proud of him. I even own one of those Cuban berets that are cool. And one day, one day I wanna be just like him.

When Marnie Was There (The last of Studio Ghibli)

Since Hayao Miyazaki retired, and how Studio Ghibli kept on going for a few months, they’ve decided to make the very last masterpiece. This struck Japan, as it’s coming to North America.

This movie has got to go through everything every movie does when they strike into theaters. See how many people come each day, at every time hour, throughout a month before it expires. To see how much money a movie can make when people go there and see it. After seeing it, and much of it’s ratings and how good it is, people will know to see if a movie like this one will be great.

With so much thought, ratings, and everything, an anime movie on this one could go in the Golden Globe Awards as it can win a Golden Globe. But more important for this one must face, it to see if it can win an Oscar. 5 or 6 of them. For Best Animated Motion Picture of the Year since Hayao Miyazaki did “Spirited Away” and “My Neighbor, Totoro”. “Ponyo” too of course.

This movie just has to win for the most, than that Disney crap, or any of those animated motion pictures that sound boring. It just has to go through everything there is, for what I said as it has to win many awards including an Oscar. 5 or 6.

Studio Ghibli has to live forever, as they are making this movie. It has to be popular to all anime fans no matter what. For what we can do, to help Studio Ghibli and all of it’s artists and it’s animators, we have to give them a chance on this movie that it has to be. The best than there is. To make them proud, useful, and wonderful again.

Between Japan and North America, we offer anime, and we need to make anime, between Japan and North America, equal. Remember, god made man. Both we North American and Japanese. And god made men, equal. And that’s what we need to do.

For the last of Studio Ghibli, like “The Last of the Mohicans”, we need to give this Japanese animated motion picture a chance to win. And therefore, when we do, we shall be happy again, and make both North American, and Japanese, equal. No matter what on anime, and manga. All that for Japanese animation. And everything, that we shall be thankful of, to Hayao Miyazaki and all od those Japanese animators of Studio Ghibli.

Studio Ghibli needs to live forever, and be remembered, forever.

And for what I can do, to help those two girls, Anna and Marnie, I shall help them no matter what. And be with them, no matter what.

For what Hayao did on ‘The Wind Rises’ and saving Nahoko in my heart, it’s all what matters to save Studio Ghibli no matter what.

Coming Soon: When Marnie Was There

After seeing a trailer, and what’s true is true, this movie coming out on May 22nd, 2015 is the last of Studio Ghibli. The last of all of its anime movies that is ever gonna hit theatres in North America. Since 2000, “Ponyo”, and “The Wind Rises”, this is the last that is a must see!!

With the voice talents of Hailee Steinfeld, John C. Reilly, Geena Davis, Kathy Bates, Vanessa Williams, Catherine O’Hara, Ellen Burstyn, Kiernan Shipka, Grey Griffin, Ava Acres, and Rani Rodriguez, this must be a 10/10 star movie with an ‘A+++’.

This movie tells about a girl, who goes to the Japanese countryside to spend the summer there. While she chills, she sees a mansion in which a blonde girl appears as they first met. They became friends as they spend the summer together. For as far as I am more concerned, this is for all anime fans to come one, come all to see this. Even for fans on the internet and YouTube. Hundreds, thousands of them.

This has got to be in the Academy Awards in order to win a few Oscars. Maybe 5 or 6 awards. For Studio Ghibli. So that Studio Ghibli can live forever and be forever. All that, goes to Studio Ghibli. It has to be in the Academy Awards as it has to win an Oscar. 5 or 6. Of course, in the Golden Globe Awards too as it has to win a Golden Globe Award.

This is all for North America that they must see! For anime, for Hayao Miyazaki, for Studio Ghibli, for the anime fans near and far, on the Internet and YouTube, for what we thank Japanese animation on everything, for their forefathers, for their birthrights on anime. All that for Japanese animation.

Footloose (1984 classic)

Kevin Bacon, John Lithgow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lori Singer, and Christopher Penn star in this 1984 classic, with 10/10 stars!!! A++!

A Chicago teenager moved into a small town where music and dancing was outlawed. With the help of some high school students, they made a stand as that law was forever gone.

The reverend even learned a lesson later as he know for what he did wrong. For sure there was the tractor race, warehouse dance, the way the town had lots of freight trains, and how everything changed later on.

The teenagers had a prom dance in the end as they danced to the song we all know popular today.

You might even like my other posts related to this. Footloose on ‘The Breakfast Club’ and how Kevin Bacon dances to the actual main theme song of ‘Pokémon’!!

The Rookie (1990)

Clint Eastwood and Charlie Sheen starred in this cop movie, as Charlie Sheen was known as ‘the rookie’. A group of Italian car criminals murdered a cops partner as the lone cop had a new partner. A rookie. They follow his tracks and places, as that senior officer wanted revenge on his old partner.

Like the ‘Dirty Harry’ franchise, it did took a while on things that are boring. But things became good. That’s why I rate this, 6/10 stars.

Charlie Sheen as that rookie became hard and motivated as he went furious. He even killed two dogs and blew flaming liquid at a bartender by using his mouth.

In the end, with the crime boss and his crew dead, his partner became as lieutenant of the police force as the rookie now an officer, now has a partner with him. Not bad for Charlie Sheen. He’s still the same since “Platoon”.

Zero man (TV show)

This was on Teletoon, 100% sure as I saw thus with my own eyes!

With the voice talents of Leslie Nielsen, Ryan Renyolds, Don Cherry, and Ron Maclean, an old man as a postman is a good man as he is kind and wishful. But he can be funny to his secret. And when a flaming tire flies overhead, he heads to a bathroom and uses a butt scanning toilet. Therefore, he goes down the Zero chute as he becomes muscular a big, wearing the Zerosuit as he becomes a superhero known as Zeroman.

Like Superman, he’s hilarious since he was Lt. Frank in ‘The Naked Gun’ series. He fights crime in Fair City as he’s known as the Man of Zeal. He says great quotes like “Holy Flaming Holes!” and “Out, Out and Away!”.

He fought three villains in one season in 13 episodes. No second season. Besides, Leslie was old but he surprised us all.

For what I saw and believed, it’s like for what happened in “The Ripping Friends”. It is a spoof maybe on Superman but this was a great cast. I would reward that TV kids program anything they would want for showing a TV show like this one.

Leslie did passed away later on, but he did funny great performances.

Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Kids (movie)

In 2003, before Rick Moranis left, Tony Jay died in 2006 and how Brooke Shields appeared in “Furry Vengeance”, they once starred in this movie, recommended for young kids as it was premiered on Teletoon, Treehouse TV and Nick Jr. Based on the novel by David Kirk and how it became a TV series after that, this showed how families can be when they are reunited together.

Brooke Shields and Rick Moranis played as the voices of Miss Spider and her new husband as they got married in the beginning. Their wedding ceremony was almost attacked by a chicken from a nearby coop far away, close to a chicken farm. It had laid an egg and forgot to bring it back.

Weeks have passed as Miss Spider laid eggs as five baby spiders were born. They found the egg the chicken laid as they know it was left behind. With it’s baby spider girl, she was the one to return it as she did. She had a long journey as Miss Spider and her husband had to follow her.

Working with three orphan bugs, these three including a baby arachnid found the farm. They had brought the egg to the chicken mother just before it hatched and how a baby chick came out. They walked together back to the farm, as it was the place for where they belonged.

Miss Spider found her baby spider as they had a happy ending together. For sure this is recommended for young kids and its TV series too that was once on Teletoon, and some of those kids channels I mentioned. I just recognized the voices of those guys as I knew something fishy was behind those stars. For as far as I can remember watching that, and showing you all this, this is a 6 1/2 out of 10 star children’s movie as they would love to watch something like this.

And I saw this on Teletoon for sure, when this was aired with my own eyes.

81 years of the Loch Ness Monster (a.k.a the Water Horse)

For 81 years in Loch Ness, a famous lake in Scotland, many people have been searching for the unexplained mystery of the Loch Ness Monster. A Nessie that lives underwater, deep below the water of the loch as it can be rarely seen on the surface.

Many scientists tried to find it, but none found no clue. Only pictures, show how they took when they found the chance when they found something sticking out of the water. A neck like a longneck dinosaur. Very green.

Throughout days, months and years, nada. However, thanks to the movie, “The Water Horse”, showed how it all started and how a Nessie can be called a water horse throughout prehistoric times. Even in some adventure and sci-fi movies on prehistory.

It was mentioned in a ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ episode where Donald and Douglas, the Scottish twin engines thought they saw it, but it was Harvey coming to help them because of an accident.

“The Water Horse” was the last movie by Revolution Studios before it was shut down in mid 2008. It had Brian Cox as the narrator as Alex Etel played as his young self. Set in 1942 during WWII, a boy found a prehistoric egg as it hatched. A water horse as it grew bigger and bigger in water. It was brought back to the loch as it became known as the Loch Ness Monster. It was seen again in adulthood when the boy found it, as British soldiers think it was the Germans. But they saw it too. Soldiers tried to kill it, but they let him go. It was disappeared however, as the man as the young boy told the story to two tourists.

It was a good movie actually. I mentioned this to a teacher while in class on unexplained mysteries while I was in high school.

For sure no one has found it, or people may think no such thing exists, but it’s still out there. Lurking in the waters. Thanks to that movie, it sure can bring how a friendship can be. Between a boy and the water horse, known as the Loch Ness Monster who wouldn’t harm anyone. All that for 81 years.
