Review: Gargantia On The Verdurous Plane...

Gargantia

While fighting an intense inter-galactic war, a mecha pilot was accidentally warped into a space-time neither he nor the computer of his mecha could recognize. After waking up from a long-time hibernation, he found himself trapped on a planet, with human residents talking in an unknown form of language, using inferior technologies, and — most shocking to him — naturally breathable air.

Gargantia2

This Mecha anime starts off with an Epic battle, all forms of Mecha versus a jellyfish like Enemy who is more then formidable against there great numbers. From the start Gargantia had me excited from the start, I love when there is a mix of cel and cg animation to bring out the depth of the characters and action in the story. I was slowly getting to love the main character and his mech, they were totally out of place on this earth and slowly adapting to their current situation as circumstances changed. The story kept heading for an insane climax but at the end of all of it, it just didn’t hit what I was really expecting, I expected something Epic but instead I was left wanting more. I enjoyed this Mecha anime but wanted more.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD or X...

KindleFireHD1

I was in love with all things Android, the freedom and flexibility with all the functionality. The Amazon product line was always trying to get you to work within the framework of the Amazon, the content all collected nicely and delivering TV Shows & Movies through Amazon Prime, but you have to be within the US for that to work.

KindleFireHD2

What got annoying about the Amazon Kindle over time was that it was so stiff, the iPad is restricted within the iPad Framework but there is so much that you can do with an iPad it never really bother’s you, there is so much to choose from.

KindleFireHD3

But only certain Apps from Android is allowed to install on your Kindle Fire/HD/HDX when the Android platform has a lot more Apps. It is honestly frustrating that I can’t get to all the Apps, and not all the ones I use are formatted for the Kindle. The Kindle has a great feature of integrating your Amazon details into your payments and subscriptions making it easy to use but I was still frustrating with the stiffness of it. The Kindle PaperWhite seems more useful since it is dedicated for those who want to read, to get that feeling that it isn’t a screen yet it is bright.

KindleFireHD4

At first the Kindle Hardware was disappointing, but when the HD came out it was great and the HDX is eve better, even the PaperWhite is great for it’s purpose. But at the end it became a paper weight in my office with no other real use since I have an iPad which I use for all sorts of things and my Samsung Nexus 10 does have the flexibility of an Android device that I love.

Review: We’re The Millers...

WERETHEMILLERS1

A veteran pot dealer creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

WERETHEMILLERS2

We’re the Millers is one of those comedies that surpasses your expectations, in my opinion the comedy of the summer. And proves again that Jennifer Aniston is still hot, at this age and she looks ridiculously hot. Jason Sudeikis is hilarious in a lot of comedies but this one he is over the top, a fack family to bring drugs across the border is a pretty unique storyline which has a lot of laughs in store. I can’t recommend it enough if you haven’t seen it, your going to love it.

Galaxy S4 – Spice Technologies Bat...

S4ST1

I need a battery case for my S4, I pretty much abuse the hell out of with every form of communication possible. At this stage a phone lasting more then 12 hours is a miracle with any phone, so this battery case was meant to do both jobs, I haven’t found the Mophie Case for the S4 yet, surprisingly they made one for the HTC One as soon as it was out which is pretty good.

S4ST2

When I’m connected to the net my phone suffers immense abuse at my hands. My usage is summed up by the details below:

  • 20% WhatsApp – Family, Friends, & Work – Nonstop Chatter
  • 15% Gmail – Replying to All Emails – Personal & Work
  • 15% Instagram – Entertainment
  • 15% Feedly – Catching Up On Feeds
  • 10% Pinterest – Entertainment
  • 10% Google Plus – Going Through My Streams
  • 10% Tumblr – Catching Up On My Feed
  • 5% Twitter – Quick Read

S4ST3

Initially the battery was ok, it did the job and helped it last more then 12 hours. After two weeks of use it started degrading in quality but at this stage it has gone down the drain. This is the battery case made by Spice Technologies, I know the name should have been an indication to the quality but I thought why not, but now I know. I saw on Amazon some other Generic battery cases with the same look, if you see it don’t bother with it, they are crap.

S4ST4

Not just failing at charge my S4, it failed to protect it, a few days ago the phone fell with the case due to the fall it cracked the screen the phone fell out of the protection which was even worse since it came out on impact. This case was a piece of crash and luckily as of writing this review the Mophie case just came out, so I’m purchasing that and hopefully I will be able to fix my screen.

Review: The Internship...

TI1

Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.

TI2

The tech savy age of Google, we use it as a verb at this stage of our lives, it is an integral part of it and seeing the insides of Google is always fun, and from the perspective of Owen Wilson & Vince Vaughn I knew it would be hilarious. Vince Vaughn is still my favorite from Old School, that movie is comedy gold, and I was hoping for the same from this one but it wasn’t exactly the same. I find Owen Wilson slightly annoying trying to play the sensitive guy all the time. It was a fun movie and you get in a good amount of laughs with their antics but not comedy legend, something you would watch again, a good comedy if your looking for a laugh but not over the top hilarity that I was hoping for.

Graceland – Not Your Typical Cop S...

Graceland1

Somewhere in Southern California, in a drug raid run by the US government, a beachfront property was seized and turned into a residence for undercover cops. They are all top agents of the DEA, FBI, and Customs and they are living in this house unofficially known as “Graceland”. “Graceland” is a place full of secrets, and bad, good, and blurred moments too. The only idyllic thing is its outside look, but the lives of its residents are nothing like it. The lies which are in the base of their undercover work, are formed a web of lies that pervades everything. Coming of a new graduating at the top of his class, FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit), could make the life of a legendary FBI agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) and the others, more complicated or it could reveal the truth. It is based upon actual events.

Graceland2

This show took a bit of getting used to, several different law agencies under the same house in an undercover situation running different or same ops. The characters of the show were interesting and the best of the bunch is Paul Briggs, is he a bad guy or a good guy, or good guy doing bad things to beat the bad guys. Then you have Mike Warren the best of the best out of Quantico, top of his class and meant to investigate Briggs. The whole house is filled with a bunch of characters and the story takes some interesting twists and turns over the 13 episode season, pretty impressive and I’m looking forward to the second season. It was a hell of an ending but left just enough of it unanswered so I don’t know where this will go next. For a cop show this is a different kind of show but short and sweet.

Devious Maids – The Surprise Hit...

DeviousMaids1

Four Latina maids with ambition and dreams of their own work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.

A 13 episode twister turned out to be a very exciting show, honestly much better then I expected I watched it episode to episode, I couldn’t wait to watch it. Eva Langoria is the executive producer of the show and she has a hit on her hands. Maids of the rich and famous of Beverly Hills is bound to have some comedy and drama thrown into the mix, and I loved the characters portrayed.

DeviousMaids2

The core of the story revolves around the maids and the one maid who was killed, and who was the killer. The antics that take place in these people’s houses is hilarious. A summer hit in my opinion and kept me watching until the end, with the perfect twist for next season, which will be next summer, it was short but sweet. I’m 100% sure every woman that watched this show loved it.

Review: Attack On Titan – Shingeki...

AttackOnTitan

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by enclosing themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

AttackOnTitan2

Every once in a while there is an anime which will rock your world, and Attack On Titan is that anime for this year. I couldn’t wait for the next episode to air, its been a while since this has happened in my case. The protagonist in the story was so intense and yet he was taken out so early on with a twist that I don’t want to ruin for a person who hasn’t watched it. Eren was the main character, but then Mikasa, Armin, & Levi were also very deeply developed characters who really took the story forward with so many cliffhangers keeping people on their seats, and you can tell the fandom behind some of the different characters. You can tell the story is excellent when the audience are fans of different people. There are times when this show left me hanging and pissed, but it is only like that because I get so invested with the show and there are a lot of questions left. The best part is that I am satisfied with the show but there are a lot of hints towards a second season which I can’t wait to see how they develop, the tides have turned and they will now Attack the Titans!

Review: Elysium...

Elysium2

Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.

Elysium1

I honestly didn’t know what to expect in the movie, except that it is a dramatic science fiction movie starring Matt Damon. I liked the trailer so I jumped right in, this is about Earth going to crap and the elite moving to an earth station orbiting around earth in the perfect world. The robots in this movie were cool and realistic, and people were going to extremes to get to Elysium. The surprise for me wasn’t just the story, it was the other star of this movie who played the bad guy perfectly, Sharlto Copley (From District 9). He made the movie insane and thrilling, above and beyond what I was initially expecting and that made it that much better.

Transformers Prime – Series End...

TFP1

I have been a huge fan of the Transformers series since the 80s, and I loved the cartoons they did in the late 90s and early 00s. The movies came out to a kid who grew up loving this show and wanting them to be real more then anything else, I will never stop thinking one day that we will meat a sentient robotic being from outer space and one that sounds and acts like Optimus Prime. From the original series, to the Beast Masters, to Armada, I loved seeing all the forms of the autobots.

TFP2

When Transformers Prime came out I was happy it had it’s own story different then the movie and it had a mature audience in mind. They really did jump into the story line of the Transformers Universe, and one the best parts of the show is that Peter Cullen played Optimus Prime who was the original from the 80s show and played Optimus in the Movies. This show pulls any fan in and I wasn’t too keen on 3D animation but they did this tastefully, and I loved how all the characters were introduced as the story progressed. This show ended 3 Seasons and they ended it on a perfect note, it wasn’t always a happy ending and you do get pulled into the story, but this was probably one of the best and most evil Megatrons I have seen.

TFP3

Each season was more Epic then the next, and the story developed perfectly, it only annoys me that there were only so many episodes to watch but this could be only described as short and sweet. I am a fan, a huge fan in fact and my love for the Transformers spawned from the 80s and grew more as I grew older and this series did make me happy every moment I watch it. There is an hour long Transformers Prime movie which I am looking forward to watching. I just hope there is more in the coming future because there are a lot of people out there that just love the Autobots & Decepticons.
