Sorry I haven't written one of these in a while, life's been getting in the way.
(basically I'm figuring out what to do with my life now that I've graduated, tell me if that feels familiar)
Anyway I thought I'd make a little review of some recent stuff I've been watching and make a few features
Here's to some inspiring (and eerily similar) shows....
Don't forget to click on the images, to get the bigger, better version In a small town where everyone knows everyone, the disappearance of a child begins to tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community. Dark government agencies and seemingly malevolent supernatural forces converge on the town, while a few locals begin to understand that there's more going on than meets the eye.
A great tribute to the old goodies like ET. It's got a fascinating range of characters, extremely addictive music, my favorite opening sequence ever, and a plot that (while not being the most revolutionary ever) still keeps you on your toes the whole season.
Design-wise, the outfits and 80's feel make it a really interesting series to draw fan art for I'd give it a solid 9/10!
Over the Garden Wall:
Summary:Two brothers find themselves lost in a mysterious land and try to find their way home.
(that's all you need to know really, the whole series is basically 2hrs long)
If I'd only seen the first episodes and stopped there I'd have said it was rubbish.
But the weird thing is, when you get to the ending suddenly everything makes sense
and you'll only want to watch the whole thing all over again
The animation style, music, outfits and character design all work together to create a creepy atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend watching this with young kids, it's pretty dark without actually looking like it.
It's very strange, and not for everyone, but the ending is so interesting it makes the whole series worth a watch.
It's a rock fact!
Overall I'd give it a 8.5/10!
(Oh god I'm tearing up just thinking about it)
When Dipper and Mabel Pines get sent to their great-uncle Stan's shop in Gravity Falls, Oregon for the summer, they think it will be boring. But when Dipper find a strange journal in the woods, they learn about some strange secrets about the town. Welcome to Gravity Falls.
Ok, this series. THIS SERIES.
My friend and I started this thinking "Hey, this looks like a nice little series to pass the time"We binge watched 40 episodes in a week. And cried at the end.
I FUCKING ADORE GRAVITY FALLS
The series starts as a series of small adventures centered on various monsters or characters, but there's an overarching plot that really picks up at the end of series 1 and will wreck you
The animation is excellent and the theme tune extremely catchy! This show is funny, sad, creepy, shocking, insightful and original. I cannot begin to explain how amazing the characters are (there's something for everyone)(also I'm cosplaying Mabel next I love her so much)
, and the way their bonds change as the action progresses is handled really well.
Prepare for some A+ Character development...
(I warned you)And really, if you're not hooked by the first episode's plot twist...
Overall grade: 9.9/10!
(for that weird mini golf episode lol)
(also is it weird I have a crush on Uncle Stan)
