Hooper (1978)

Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, Jan-Michael Vincent, Terry Bradshaw, and Adam West as himself star in this action comedy movie, from director Hal Needham who did “Smokey and the Bandit”.

A Hollywood stuntman has been making good progress in some movies, especially his last one with Adam West. Right after youngster stunt double came to the film business, they’ve made an excellent team.

Two funny parts in this movie were hilarious. One, was when a horse took a massive dump on a new car. (You should’ve seen his flatulence). And two, was when they said ‘Bye bye officer’, as they blasted off big time. Their jet engine hidden in the back of their car made them go much faster than a bullet. They did it again on set, as they flew across a river. (And I can tell you this. It’s IN YOUR FACE on that ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ TV episode in which someone had a jet engine as he went, BLAST OFF)

Dedicated to the stuntmen and stuntwomen that were in movies, that they were made the old fashioned way, I give this 8/10 stars. Really good movie.

Mirai (2018 anime masterpiece)

Made it to the 76th Golden Globe Awards ceremony, and the 91st Academy Awards ceremony for Best Animated Feature Film, it was thanks to Mamoru Hosoda, the director of ‘Wolf Children’ and ‘The Boy and the Beast’.

His masterpiece ALMOST won that Golden Globe Award and that Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. Unfortunately it lost those awards, if it weren’t for that spider monkey flick.

For what happened wasn’t really fair. Cause the rest that GKIDS on their masterpieces, when they made it to the Golden Globe Awards and the Oscars, such as “The Tale of Princess Kaguya”, “When Marnie Was There”, “Song of the Sea”, “A Cat in Paris” and “The Breadwinner”, it wasn’t fair that they were left out nominated at both award ceremonies. If it weren’t for both the voters, and other animation studios in North America on their shitty work. All they care for is nothing but money in their pockets which is really a bad idea. Especially if its more computer graphics, or more CGI animation that are much worse.

Besides, GKIDS hasn’t won a Golden Globe Award or an Oscar award for Best Animated Feature Film ever since. And they really deserve a Golden Globe Award and an Oscar award for sure, more than what they can imagine. For one category and one category only: Best Animated Feature Film.

Mirai means ‘future’ in Japanese. Which is really interesting.

Set in Isogo-ku, Yokohama, Japan, an architect father and an executive mother with their 4 year old son Kun, have brought their newborn baby daughter to their home. They named her Mirai. Adorable and cute, they had really loved her.

Kun was left alone, until he met Mirai in the garden….who is much older and came from the future. So together, they looked at their family tree of how their grandparents were, and how their mom and dad were as 4 year olds. Until Kun reconciled with his baby sister Mirai, just before they left for a family vacation.

With the voice talents of Jaden Waldman, Victoria Grace, Daniel Dae Kim, Rebecca Hall, and John Cho (who played Mr. Hikaru Sulu in the new Star Trek movies), we definitely need a bright and better mirai (future) for us anime fans. Especially to those that MUST WIN Golden Globe Awards and Oscar awards for Best Animated Feature Film.

So for a remarkable masterpiece, 10/10 stars and an ‘A++’!!

Gundam Wing: The Movie (Gundam-W: Endless Waltz)

“Mobile Suit Gundam Wing” was one of the popular anime TV shows on that TV channel YTV. In fact, they had a very Gundam Wing movie premiered in which it was a blast for them. Before that anime tv show got cancelled, as everything on YTV changed. By going from bad to worse, and then those total shit storms in the future.

Until by November of 2018, I found a DVD copy of it and that is what you’re reading on. Like the rest such as “Pokémon 3: The Movie”, “Sailor Moon SuperS: The Movie”, and more, this is one of them.

By Christmas, a year after their war had ended, a seven year old rich daughter, of military effort and leadership, wanted to rule the Earth. By making a mistake, she caused chaos on Earth with an army of new Gundam robots. As for our Gundam Wing heroes that were ready to retire, did one last effort to save the Earth from destruction once more.

With the voice talents of Kirby Morrow, Maggie Blue O’Hara, Brian Drummond, Scott McNeill, Brad Swaile, Saffron Henderson, and more that worked for the support of YTV and Teletoon mostly, they saved their Christmas on Earth and in space stations, as their Gundam war shall be no more. The daughter learned a lesson after that, as they destroyed the Gundam robots. They’ve retired after that, and will never forget for what they really did.

So for a splendid and remarkable success, for this this was on YTV a long time ago, especially their anime TV show, I give this 10/10 stars and a ‘A++’.

Top 8 Digimon

This blog post is dedicated to the English cast members, that did the first four seasons of “Digimon”, as they were mostly popular on that Canadian TV channel YTV. Most of all, “Digimon: The Movie” and the “Digimon Adventure tri” movies.

Remember my previous blog post on my ‘Top 8 Anime Feline Characters’? For Meicoomon happens to be number 1#? Well, related to that, for the moment that you’ve been waiting for, are the top 8 Digimon that I’ve seen that are amazing.

8. Kazemon. Owned by Zoey in “Digimon Frontier”, she’s like a god among the Digimon. For she is athletic, strong willed, caring, and can fly much faster in the wind. She in fact, contains windy powers. Although she does martial arts, but can also transform into her mega form which is almost like an angel. With those special moves on her, she can summon a massive hurricane than ever before.

7. Terriermon. Owned by Willis in “Digimon: The Movie”, he had been an adorable Digimon with those long floppy ears of his. Although he has a twin brother named Lopmon, but I’m sure that the both of them are equal. Especially by getting rid of the old infected one, for a new one. And by looking at how he transforms, he becomes a hunter Digimon with those blue pants and machine guns of his. Wow.

6. Palmon. Owned by Mimi from the movies and first two seasons, this plant like Digimon can have the vines like a grass type Pokémon. She does contain poison ivy in her. For she is very kind, she can be curious sometimes, and want to help out. Also, not only she can transform into that cactus boxer, but can transform into those two flower Digimon that no anime fan had ever seen. Lillymon and Rosemon.

5. Renamon. Owned by Rika from “Digimon Tamers”, she’s a massive yellow fox who happens to be bigger than Ninetales from “Pokémon”. For she is quick, athletic, very nice, and can transform nearly like Ninetales. As a bigger fierce fox with nine actual massive tails. She does contain fire power. And I mean a lot. She would also snarl more vicious by facing an enemy, and tear off a victims foot by jaws.

4. Gomamon. Owned by Joe from the movies and first two seasons, this white seal happens to be adorable. For he can swim like all seals, beat Misty’s Psyduck from “Pokémon” in a race, and can transform into a big furry one. Although he cares for Joe a lot, but doesn’t want to lose his friend. Even if he was drowning at sea all of a sudden. Luckily for Joe, he was glad to have him as a friend.

3. Hawkmon. Owned by Yolei from “Digimon: The Movie” and the second season, this bird Digimon has been clever, polite, and can transform into three different forms. One like a samurai, and two that are way much more bigger than the bird Pokémon’s that Ash had as a trainer. Although he has these serious looks in his next forms, but he’s a good friend to Yolei as he cares for her. The same for Yolei on Hawkmon.

2. Biyomon. Owned by Sora from the movies and first two seasons, this magenta bird Digimon happens to have fire powers, and be cute too. For she can be very nice, fly like an eagle, and can transform like the mythical phoenix in three different forms. One like a god, and two like the actual phoenix, including her mega form. One firestorm out of her, and you’d be in a stuck in a shack in flames.

1. Gatomon. Owned by Kari, Tai’s younger sister from the movies and first two seasons, this cat Digimon is almost as cute as Meicoomon. For she is so wise, cute, adorable, and can transform into Nefertimon and an angel woman that no anime fan had ever laid eyes on. In fact, you should’ve seen her other forms. Two as very cute kittens, and her mega form as a furry serpentine dragon.

So those are my top 8. And do you agree with my picks? Which are your favourite Digimon? Please be sure to subscribe to my blog, anytime you feel like anime fans.

Digimon Adventure tri: Future

Like Part IV, it left me no choice but to watch the final chapter, Part VI online on the Internet, as a DVD copy was coming out very slow at my local library. As I made it just in time for Christmas, when “Digimon Adventure tri” came to an end.

By going back from the Digital World to our world, it was almost a digital apocalypse as the Digimon Emperor caused mayhem. More and more dark Digimon that were infected, caused the military to show up, as they were unstoppable to them. Tanks, gunships, and battleships were like toys against them. And with that, they fought back by nearly wiping them out.

Just before more and more dark Digimon, were heading on our continents of the Earth, the Digidestined with their Digimon did all the best they can, on mega digi evolutions. Until finally, they rescued Gatomon as Tai came back. Kari who was suffering from a fever was glad to have Gatomon and her brother back, as Gatomon became a dragon Digimon called Magnadramon at once. I haven’t seen her as Magnadramon since her cameo appearance in “Digimon: The Movie”.

Meicoomon returned to the Digital World after the darkness was destroyed, as Meiko will never forget her at all. Some other characters like the Digimon Emperor disappeared however. But the good part was, the memories are fully restored to the Digimon, as they also rescued the new Digidestined from season 2 from the hit anime TV show. They made a cameo appearance in cryogenic pods.

A few months later, Meiko returned to the country. By the time it was Christmas Eve, they sent her a package with Christmas gifts to her, and gave her a phone call too. During the phone call, that made Meiko very happy, is that they’ll always be friends forever no matter what. And they’ll have a bright future (or Mirai in Japanese) that they’ll have, and remember forever no matter what happens. Meiko was very glad to be a new member of the Digidestined.

So for a remarkable final chapter to the “Digimon Adventure tri” saga, 10/10 stars and a straight ‘A’ is what I give. A year and five months is what I’ve been going through, as I’m glad all six anime movies foretold the whole story, as I got to the successful conclusion.

And as “Digimon Adventure tri” concludes the whole story…

終わり(Owari)

The End

Akira Miyazaki (1934-2018)

As we’ve lost former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, and Japanese screenwriter Yū Yamamoto who did “Mobile Suit Gundam”, Akira Miyazaki came to an end sadly by bile duct cancer at the age of 84 on November 25th, 2018.

Born only in Japan on October 27th, 1934, four years before Orson Welles did his “War of the Worlds” broadcast that shocked North America, Akira Miyazaki went on from his early childhood to becoming a director, and a screenwriter too.

He did the anime versions of “The Wizard of Oz”, “Tom Sawyer”, “Little Women”, “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp”, and other interesting titles in anime such as “Racoon Rascal”, “Lucy-May of the Southern Rainbow”, and “Like the Clouds, Like the Wind”.

So you could say that he read a few books first, before making them into anime adaptions, as he created for what he can do as a director and screenwriter.

And in conclusion, he is not related to Hayao Miyazaki I believe, as he showed Japan on how his masterpieces were really made of.

R.I.P. Akira Miyazaki. Say hi to Isao Takahata for me, will you?

Top 8 Home Alone Booby Traps

Rather than “The Goonies” for what they did, on making contraptions and facing booby traps, Macaulay Culkin is an absolute genius as Kevin McCallister when he made those hilarious booby traps on those bandits. Portrayed by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.

In this list, between “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”, these are the top 8 booby traps that he ever did. In his house in Chicago, and in his New York hideout, he made his own temple of dooms against those dudes.

Warning: This top 8 post list maybe odd and different, but for what these two guys did, they got the pain in his traps…equally.

 

8. “Up and Down the Ropes”. Between the two movies, Harry and Marv have always climbed on ropes. In the first movie, after Kevin did his first zip lining from his house to his tree house, Marv and Harry walked across the rope, avoiding vertigo, until they screamed hilariously when the rope was cut. In the second movie, while climbing down, they didn’t know that the rope was soaked in kerosene. Kevin lit the whole thing, as Marv and Harry fell a few stories high, and got soaked by gooey paint cans.

 

7. “Hilarious Slips”. Harry and Marv always have slipped on his traps that he set up. In the first movie, they’ve been mostly slipping on ice. At the basement door for Marv, and front door for Harry. Their reactions are hilarious. In the second movie, while Harry was slipped by slime to get on a ladder, Marv slipped on a whole lot of them until he crashed into paint buckets.

6. “Paint Cans and a Column”. Marv and Harry always get knocked down the stairs by a swinging object. In the first movie, they got hit by two paint cans. One for monkey Marv, and the other for angry Harry as he loses his gold tooth. In the second movie, they avoided those paint cans, but together get hit by a black metal column as they fall through the pit of his hideout. Kevin in fact, cuts the column loose to hit them one last time.

5. “Tool Chest Coming Down the Stairs” (Home Alone 2). It’s not those two banana brothers in pyjamas that are heading down those stairs. Gravity wins as always against those Wet Bandits. By pulling a doorknob with a string attached on it, they hear a banging noise. Wondering what it was, and how it gets closer, it wasn’t that long when it bursts through the door, and squashes their nostrils. Their noses maybe broken, but I can imagine if those bananas in unitard pyjamas were squashed as pancakes.

 

4. “Hands Off!”. Marv and Harry do need to keep their hands off before they get something permanent while injured. In the first movie, Harry after climbing up the icy slippery steps, in front of his house, gets his hand burned by a hot doorknob that Kevin rigged, and gets the burn of his life. He had it cooled down in the snow, but gets the permanent damage of his life. In the second movie, Marv after covered in paint from his previous trap, gets himself electrocuted by two water faucets as Kevin cracks up the juice. It made his hair all puffy, and you should’ve seen it when he was down to his skeleton reaction.

3. “BB Gun Shot” (Home Alone). When it comes to BB guns, you do need to be careful with them. However for Kevin as a clever trap maker, and a marksman also, he plans his first move when the Wet Bandits arrived at his back door. By using his brother’s pump action BB gun, he shot Harry at his balls, and Marv at his forehead, as they get hilarious results. Before they got into the rest of his traps, Kevin drew first blood, in his first booby trap.

 

2. “Marv Gets the Pain”. Between both movies, Daniel Stern as Marv gets the pain to watch out. In the first movie, he goes up the basement stairs, leaving his shoes and socks behind because of the black gooey tar that Kevin had it set up. But falls backwards after his left foot lands on a nail, near the summit as he screams hilariously. In the second movie, he goes tries to go through a door but is rigged by yards of string, and a staple gun. He gets himself shot deep at his ass, another one at his balls, and the third to shut his nostrils. He reactions to those are hilarious.

 

  1. “Harry is on Fire Tonight!”. Between both movies, Joe Pesci as Harry gets it. In the first movie, after getting shot by a bb gun at his balls, and his hand burned by a hot doorknob, Harry decided to head through the kitchen door. But activates a blowtorch, and gets his head on fire. After dousing it out with snow, that must’ve hurt a lot like hell when he had burnt his hair. In the second movie, Kevin did it again to him in a bathroom in his New York hideout. With his crown on fire, Harry gets himself to douse it out with toilet bowl water, but gets a explosive result when it comes to kerosene that Kevin rigged. After that, his hat and head together become burnt as ever.

Do you agree with my list? Which are your favourite booby traps? And I thank that young man for what he did, he is a still an absolute genius for sure on booby traps.

In fact, here is a tribute song to them, including Kevin (after seeing a sing along trailer).

Shrek the Halls with Marv and Harry

Merry Christmas from osmovies!!

Yū Yamamoto (1946-2018)

Right before Stephen Hillenburg, creator of “Spongebob Squarepants” had his heart failure, he came to an end unfortunately at the age of 71.

Born on Christmas Eve in 1946, Niigata, Japan, he later became noticeable for scriptwriting and being an animator too. Mostly for that early anime tv show, “Mobile Suit Gundam”. The very original. The movies too in the trilogy.

And that’s not all. As a scriptwriter, he had written scripts for more than 70 anime tv shows. He also did scripts for Ultraman TV shows that I’ve never heard about, and must be a part of those Ultra Brothers. In their trilogy for Japan.

When you’re a scriptwriter, from your days on writing stories to scriptwriting at college, and then the movie and TV show business, you want to tell your stories in your own words. And tell for what they really mean. Especially if it’s whole, or probably have to be in episodes. Not a profit.

Cause when he went through the “Mobile Suit Gundam” TV series, and other anime TV shows that I’ve never heard about, Yū Yamamoto was really excellent on stories that can show in the future. Better than George Orwell’s “1984”.

I have seen the very original Gundam, but he must’ve deserved something like an award for all that scriptwriting that he had been going through.

R.I.P. my man. You would’ve deserved something made out of 24 carat gold besides Golden Globe awards and Oscar awards.

Under the Pledging Tree (A Christmas Song)

Since a lot of Christmas songs were sung several times, by different singers, as Adam Sandler as a Jewish American, no wonder did his Hanukkah Song on Saturday Night Live. His animated movie, “Eight Crazy Nights” too. He only did it cause there were not very much songs for Hanukkah for the Jewish people. So, therefore he did a great job.

In this one that I did, since I wrote a tribute song to a very famous high wire acrobatic, this is one Christmas song that is fascinating since I was inspired by a few artworks.

This one is what I call….Under the Pledging Tree.

Art thou, art thou,

Coming to the tree

A lot of gifts that say will have

Will more than only three

It happens to be big here

No stranger had really seen

I’ll be there at midnight

Under the Pledging Tree

Art thou, art thou,

Coming to the tree

Where a wise man had called out

For what he really mean

Glittering things did happen there

No stranger had really seen

I’ll be there at midnight

Under the Pledging Tree

Art thou, art thou,

Heading for the tree

It’s already Christmas Eve

As all the gifts are free

Sparkling lights did happen there

No stranger had really seen

I’ll be there at midnight

Under the Pledging Tree

Art thou, art thou,

Coming to the tree

Wear a beautiful ribbon,

As we’ll go together with me

Beautiful things did happen there

No stranger had really seen

We’ll be there at midnight

Under the Pledging Tree

Art thou, art thou,

Heading for the tree

It’s already Christmas Eve

As all the gifts are free

Sparkling lights did happen there

No stranger had really seen

I’ll be there met at midnight

Under the Pledging Tree

Art thou, art thou

Coming to the tree

A lot of gifts that say will have

Will more than only three

It happens to be big here

No stranger had really seen

I’ll be there at midnight

Under the Pledging Tree

Art thou, art thou,

Coming to the tree

Where a wise man had called out

For what he really mean

Glittering things did happen there

No stranger had really seen

I’ll be there at midnight

Under the Pledging Tree.

Warning: This maybe similar to the ‘hanging tree’ song from “The Hunger Games”, and that Pokémon TV episode in the XY series. However, I was inspired by both that song and episode, as I think it almost looks like Christmas really. This is something that I think everyone will enjoy at Christmas, as they love that holiday the most. So like that “Super Freak” song to “Can’t Touch This”, this is what I’d do. Creat inspiring songs.
