Hello everypony. How have yall been recently? I've been good. Sorry I haven't been on in a while. Nothin really interesting is happening in my life right now apart from after school clubs, so I don't think about getting on. If yall want to talk to me almost daily then join my discord server and we can chat. Next Saturday I will be going on an Orienteering Competition with some of my fellow R.O.T.C. cadets so that'll be fun. How have yall been?
Movie Review: Bird BoxSo I'm here with another movie review. I know I've done one yesterday but my original plan was to watch Bird Box but The Meg got in the way of that. So I watched it tonight instead.So the plot of Bird Box if simple. The world has gone extinct from something that will cause you to commit suicide if you see it. So the remaining people left in the world don't go outside but when they do, they wear blind folds. Three surivors (a mother (who I like to call female Kratos), and two children) are trying to find a camp that is safe from whatever it is that's killing everyone. The movie switches back and fourth between the first month or so since the chaos started, and the current day that our three heros have traveled for.There are somethings that I will dock this movie on, but there aren't a lot of things to dock. First off, the first death of the survivors (that we get to know and love) was gay. Now I'm taking that off because there was another character that served NO purpose except to be a complete asshole. And not even a charming asshole like Nick Wild (from Zootopia) was. He was just a blatant asshole there to cause problems for everyone. So he could have EASILY been the one to die first (when you see the movie, this was a scenerio where someone specific was meant to die so the asshole could have died there and the plot wouldn't have been altered in the slightest). Another reason why I'm docking points for that is cause I'm petty AF. Another reason that I'm docking points off is the love interest of the movie. I felt absolutely no chemestry between the two romantic duo (one being our main character from the beginning and the other being one of the survivors). BUT later in the movie another pregnant lady arrives at the house and joins everyone. Since both our main character and the new lady are pregnant, the new lady feels that it would be best to sleep in the same room together. Over time we realize that the new lady is a softy. And that the main character kinda watches out for her. These two characters have a few things in common and with the main character looking out for the softy, I could feel a really strong romantic bond between the two. The actual love interest has NO chemestry with the main character whatsoever. Another thing that I'm docking points on is it felt towards the end of the flashbacks the movie didn't kill enough people so they had 1 crazy person against 3-4 people and they all failed. Except the asshole who got a shot on the person but it was only in the arm, so it didn't do much.Now whatever negatives I have remaining about the movie are just very small and not even worth bringing up because they don't make sense and are hard to explain without spoiling. Now for some positives. The acting was great. Nothing phonomenal, but nothing to complain about. The cinematography was really nice. Characters had some great personalities to them (even the ones I hate). And it is kind of nice that they didn't have a creature specifically shown in the movies, but one of the survivors that went crazy had drawn what he had seen and we got to see what those looked like, so that was pretty cool.Enough with the bantering. Let's take a look at the A.P.C. and see how good of a move this is.Characters: 100%Plot: 75%Acting: 80%Cinematography: 80%Consistency/w plot: 75%Interest kept: 80%Scares: 30% (I won't factor in because the movie didn't want to go the whole scary type of horror. More adventure, than scares).TOTAL: 82%Notes: When I saw the trailer I thought it was gonna be a really good movie. The took out the sense of sight and had to focus more on hearing and mental capability to survive and it worked. A lot like the movie Hush which dealt with a girl who was deaf, the movie took the risk of not having an important surviving factor (in these two movies cases it was having the character(s) not have a sense that you would normally need to survive). And that risk paid off. The movie was fun, nothing amazing like Wonder Woman (2017) or Deadpool, but fun none the less. Definately go check it out if you haven't already.Hope you guys enjoyed my review. This movie was tough to review without spoiling a lot. If yall didn't like the movie tell me why, if you did, then tell me how much you agree with my ratings. Have a nice day.
Aight so this movie review is brought to you by Fear. Something that drives people to do insane crap that they regret immediately or don't even live to regret it.
Alright so I just watched the Meg. Some of you may know that my biggest fear in life is being anywhere near the water. A deep pool is about as far as I will go. No lakes, rivers, and by the holy man himself, NO OCEAN. So you all might be wondering why I put myself through hell for a movie. Well I heard the movie wasn't scary at all so I decided to go and see what was up with it. So taking out the fact that I'm afraid of the water, the movie wasn't scary in the slightest. The jumpscares were only slightly scary to me because of my fear of the water, but other than that the movie was less scary than the Teletubbies...actually scratch that. If you've seen how big the Teletubbies are, then the scary factor on them rises. So this movie was about as scary as My Little Pony. It really wasn't scary in the slightest. There was a lot of ATTEMPTED comedy in the movie. Even though it's not placed as a comedy, there were too many jokes in there for me to not have a comedic section in my Average Percent Calculator (APC).
The acting was pretty good for all of the characters. I didn't like Li Bingbing's (Suyin) acting in most of the scenes, and her character felt dry. Like you had all of the other actors who actually had some personality to them. You had Jason Statham who was the one doing all the dangerous stuff, Rainn Wilson who was the douche bag entrepenuer who tried to get everyone killed so he could save a few bucks, and even Page Kennedy who was the scaredy cat who wanted to get out of there. But then you have Li Bingbing who's character was dryer than some over cooked chicken. She was just there to get herself into danger, to give Jason Statham more badass time, to be the unneeded love interest, and to save Jason Statham in the ending. Now a lot of you might be like "You just gave away something in the movie. Why did you spoil it. Blah blah blah"
In all honesty as soon as you see Jason save everyone in the beginning, and it's established that he's the cool savior, you'll realize that he's gonna need saving in the end, so it's not that bad.
So the plot of the movie feels like something from a movie that's on the Syfy channel. An underwater discovery team has a theory that the bottom of the Mariana Trench is not the bottom. It's made of like pressurized sulfur dioxide or something like that and their machines can pass through it but because it's so cold the life down their can't pass through. So they go down and pass through the "bottom" and reach the other side. While down their the three people that went down there get attacked and are stranded. So to save the three people, they convince Jason Statham to go down there because his ex wife is down there. Once they get everyone back up and everything is all well and good. The Meg attacks their research station Mana 1. After doing some finding on the radars and other equipment, they find out that when they left there was some heat or something that left a trail through the cold pressurized sulfur dioxide. And before the heated passage grew cold the meg had time to swim through.
So that's enough of that plot. So here's my ratings for the movie.
Scares: 0% (Excluding my fear of the water that enhanced these scares.)
Interest kept: 50%
NOTES: The Meg had good ideas that were executed poorly. They got some good actors in there, some good cinematography, but that's really about it. The Meg was better left as a trailer. The trailer made the movie look so good, but the actual movie felt like a stretch of the trailer. What seemed like it was gonna have a lot of exploration in it, didn't really have too much exploration. As much as I hate to say this, if they had spent more time underwater exploring the underground areas, then the movie would have been a little better. Because as I said earlier, their cinematography was amazing, and pretty scary.
If you liked The Meg, let me know why you liked it. If you didn't like it. Tell me how much you agree with my ratings. Thanks for reading and happy New Years.
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm a little sad, but pretty good none the less. My aunt, uncle, and their kids left today. I'm pretty sad about that because this might be the last time I see them. If I get into the Air Force, then I won't get to see them ever again. But apart from that I'm doin pretty well. I watched Krampus tonight. I will give credit, where credit is due. The movie had some great visuals on a lot of the monsters, and the beginning was pretty good. BUT over all the movie was awful. The story line was fine, and the acting was great for some of the characters, but the middle and the end of the movie felt like something you would see off of the SyFy channel, and they aren't known for having good movies on there. The movies I would usually rate a 4/10 what with cheesy acting, awful C.G.I. and not the best plot lines. So back to Krampus. The story line was fine, but there was a scene where the (for some reason German) grandmother was telling a story from her childhood about *surprise surprise* her interatction with Krampus, Now the animation was pretty nice, but I still have no clue why it was animated. The flashback story wasn't bad. It met the plot line perfectly but that's not really a compliment. More of a "if you don't have this perfect then there's something wrong" kind of situation. Because the flash back should match the plot line perfectly. (that's the one thing in a movie that needs to be perfect). But the animation didn't fit at all. There was NOTHING in that flash back that could'nt have been done in live action. That's another thing wrong with this movie. There were a lot of pointless scenes that felt like the cost A LOT of money. And the ending. HOLY CRAP the ending. *SPOILER FOR THE ENDING* I was so confused if the boy actually died or if Krampus threw him into a portal that would allow him to be with his family. I'm pretty sure it's the portal because when the family sees the bell, they all get quite and have serious expressions on their faces. *SPOILER OVER* So recap on the movie.
ACTING FOR THE UNCLE AND AUNT: 50%
ACTING FOR EVERYONE ELSE: 100%

TOTAL MOVIE AVERAGE (TMA): 67%
If you liked it tell me why. If you didn't tell me how much you agree with my review. And please remember this is just my opinion. If you liked it great (that's why I asked you to tell me why), I won't judge.
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm pretty good. Got fed up playing Dark Souls 2 today. I'm tryin to beat the Ancient Dragon boss, but it kills me with one hit. And that wouldn't be to bad, if it wasn't the fact that the trip there has 11 tough enemies that I have to make my way around. So I've decided to just keep killing those guys until they stop respawning (I've got to kill each enemy 15 times). It's frustrating, but other than that nothin too special has been happening. I've taken some pictures with my new camera lens and the pictures came out beautifully (it's a Macro lens that's 75-300 mm). It's way better than my old lens thats (35-55mm). How have yall been? What did yall get for Christmas (if you celebrate it.)
Merry Christmas, Hannakuah, or whatever you celebrate. Hope yall have a good time and lots of laughs.
Hello everypony. How have yall been? I've been doin pretty good. Nothin too interesting has been happening here. Gettin ready for my Aunt and Uncle to come up with their kids. So that'll be a lot of fun. But cleaning up the house is not fun. But we're almost done. We've got to finish cleaning up the house then were done. I've already got the bunk bed for the kids put together. So how have yall been?
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. So today was C.O.T.C. graduation. I got my ribbon, and certificate, but not my ranks because I cannot have a D, and I have one D. BUT that D is a 69.4 and I need a 69.5 to have a C. So I don't have to do very much to get that grade up. I've already completed an assignment that was missing in the class that needs the grade up. So either tomorrow or next week, I will get my ranks. I've gotta say. It feels SO good to have the literally sweat, blood, and tears all be worth it. I even lost my grip on reality for a few minutes and started arguing with this voice in my head telling me that I wasn't going to pass and that there was no point. But my best friend snapped me out of it before any of the instructors noticed (who knows what would've happened if they saw that). So I proved to myself that I can do it. We may not have been the first C.O.T.C. flight to have had every cadet pass, but we were the C.O.T.C. flight to have every cadet make it to the final day without quitting. And that's a great accomplishment. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How are yall doin? I'm doin great!!!! So today I took all of my tests for C.O.T.C. and I passed. I'm sooooooo happy. All of the literally sweat, blood, tears (and momentary loss on my grip of reality) was all worth it. I will now be a Second Luteniant in R.O.T.C. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How have yall been? I've been good. Did my last day of C.O.T.C. yesterday. Tuesday I will be taking my tests for C.O.T.C. then if I pass then Wednesday I will go to graduation. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How have yall been recently. I've been doin good. Sorry it's been a long time since I've been on. This whole week I've had to do C.O.T.C. (Cadet Officer Training Core). Today was the hardest day with me straining the muscle in my right arm, and I reopened some wounds I got on Monday from C.O.T.C. and when I got home I had to do a project until it was time for bed every night. So I've been quite busy. I will be gone all day tomorrow but after tomorrow my days will no longer be busy. How have yall been?
SOOOOO after doing a tiny bit of work I've made an MLP/Furry discord chat. If yall want to come in a chat, feel free. Just so everypony knows this is a SFW channel, but there are a couple exceptions that I will make depending on what it is you want to post. https://discord.gg/vEbcnM I hope yall can have some fun.
Hello everypony how are yall today? I'm great. So I had to go through this Non Commissioned Officer Academy for my R.O.T.C. Basically it's just a chance to get higher ranks. And I was worried that I didn't pass my final exam but I passed. Today I went to a community service with the R.O.T.C's Color Guard at a cemetary. We went to the cemetary yesterday to plant American Flags on the veteran's graves. Today we went back up so the color guard could present the flags. I'm not part of the color guard but I went because I am the head master of the Public Affairs aspect in R.O.T.C. (I take the pictures). Then later today we went across the river to the Tropicana Palace and the color guard preformed their signature rifle spins (I went for the same reason I went to the cemetary). After Color Guard did their signatures we walked over to the Vietnam Wall and saw all of the names of the soldiers who died during the Vietnam war. This guy came up to us and gave us all a piece of the American Flag that had been ready to burn. I guess with a lot of the flags that their going to burn, they take off the stars for these special occasions. Since we're all R.O.T.C we each got a star from the flag. Then I found a rock that had a painting of a sillouete of a soldier kneeling down with the American Flag in the background. I picked it up and took a picture of it but one of the people that was keeping an eye on the Wall (to make sure people don't mess with anything that people leave to honor the veterans) said that I could take it. We have a thing here in Bullhead, AZ and Laughlin, NV where people leave painted rocks lying around and people take a picture of them, share them on FB, then either keep the rock or place it somewhere else. After that one of the people who helped set up everything for the Color Guard to spin, bought all 6 of us a meal at the buffet. I made sure that $100 was all used XD. Everyone was somehow shocked that I ate 2 plates of Pot Roast, 4 muffins, and a plate of Ice Cream and STILL had room for more. So that was my day. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm doin better. Sorry I've barely been on recently. I've just been having problem after problem. First off I think I have another kidney stone. If not another kidney stone then something is wrong with that area of my kidney because it's been feeling terrible the past few days. Second off, if yall remember last year I was apart of C.O.T.C and basically it was utter hell for me. Well I got invited into it again this year and my g-ma wants me to do it. So if I have to do it, then I'm gonna have to do it with more kidney problems. Third off. My stress levels have been goin crazy recently. This kid in my Culinary class keeps being a jerk (trying not to use anything really mean so I can keep my anger from rising again) and I won't even say everything that he did to me and my best friend tonight. Me, my best friend, and my culinary hour had to stay at school until 7:30 pm because we had to cook dinner for the people that are paying for our stuff. And this dinner tonight gave that kid the perfect opportunity to get on me and my best friend's last nerves. My best friend and I went out side to take a few minutes and a side of me came out that I never want to see again. It was a storm of rage, anger and swearing that was bottled up. I've seen myself like this a couple times and I hate it. Whenever I see that side of myself I feel like a monster. The complete opposite of the person I really am. It's a side I've hidden for so long and this kid is bringing it out of me very easily. I've talked with the teacher about this but she hasn't done anything yet. I'm gonna try to switch my culinary hour with my financial algebra hour. My mom recommended me talking to my Sargent about this but that's not necessary since I can change out. Anyways I'll try to be on here more. BUT of course I'm not gonna leave on a negative note. Two good things came out of this tonight. First off the food was delicious and I got to take some home with me. (We made Chicken St. Paul with Vilut'e sauce. There was also rice, and a vegetarian lasagna which was divine). I also found out that another one of my friends is a brony. And the funny part is when my best friend found out, he got so upset about it. Cause a lot of his friends are bronies and furries. It's not that he hate bronies or furries, it's just most of his friends are always going on about their interest in either fandom and it annoys him. XD But out of respect for him I never talk about either one unless it comes up in conversations. But yeah that was fun to learn. It also reminded me that the people you may least expect to be into something, can surprise you by being a fan of the show. She even called herself a brony, (yes she said brony not pegasister) not just a fan of the show. So how have yall been?

Hello, my friend! I'm sorry to hear things haven't been the best lately. I hope your kidney gets better soon! Great to hear about your friend being a brony, though! I wish I knew someone who was one too – I'm of course talking about knowing someone offline, I know many here on the forums!
I'm feeling better than I used to – I had an annoying cold for a few days, but now it's almost gone. I hope it doesn't come back...
