Tonight The Legend of Korra ended. As a huge fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender growing up I was ecstatic when a sequel series was announced way back in 2012. The series has had its ups and downs, and while it may not have been as smooth as a ride as Last Airbender, Korra’s saga has been engaging, hilarious, and infuriating, but most of all fun. In order to do this series justice, I’m going to review each season. Now, I’m not going to even mention how poorly Nickelodeon has handled this series. The anger it would bring about would ruin the moment. No, that is a topic for another day. This is about the series itself. With that in mind, let us begin at the beginning, when we were first introduced to Republic City and our new Avatar Korra.
Horrible Bosses 2 is a lot like the first one. The jokes are hit or miss and the plot gets kind of lost somewhere in the middle. This is unfortunate because the original, while funny, was only barely above average. This film feels about half an hour too long, and the jokes either really land or really don’t. This isn’t to mention the fact that the whole film feels completely unneeded.
Final Verdict: 2.5/5
Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryōiki no Déjà Vu is the sequel to the massively popular 2010 anime series Steins;Gate. The plot of this movie directly picks up from the last OVA, which means discussing it is spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen the series yet.
To put it simply, Okabe is in a bit of trouble and it comes down to Kurisu to save him. This means that Okabe is absent for the majority of the film, and the focus is shifted onto his love interest, the brilliant young scientist Kurisu. While this is a nice change of pace the beauty of her character really shines with her interactions with Okabe. He is really the piece that holds this series together. His goofy actions and wild rants are what makes the show, and while his absence does make the film suffer a little at times, damn does it also make for some good melodrama. There are so many emotions flying through this film. If you’re a fan of the show you’ll love this film. It is just so sweet and fun with even more cool time travel the series did so well.
I know I’m going on and on about how much i loved it but I only gave it three stars, why? Well, the truth is while I absolutely loved this film I loved it because I love these characters so much. The plot was thin this time around and overall the story was very slow moving with not a lot happening. However all the characters are spot on, the dialogue is hilarious as usual, and the visuals are beautiful. If the story had been a bit better executed then this would have been a perfect movie, but hey, I’m really just happy I got more Steins;Gate.
