Just saw the live action Aladdin and thought I would share some of my thoughts on that movie. I don’t think this movie offers anything to those of us who grew up with the original Disney movie. Sure there are some new stuff here, but essential as all
Disney live action has been it’s more of less a remake of the cartoon.
While I did complain about some things being more or less a one to one reproduction of the original, I’m a bit sad they didn’t do that with some stuff.
And mostly it was the parts with Jafar, he is without a doubt for me the worst part about this movie. I did not like his character at all.
All in all it was an okay movie, but I wish Disney would do something more original with these live action movies. I have nothing against hem being based on their old stuff, but please. Could you perhaps try to do more new stuff?
We don’t need a shot for shot remake of your movies, then we can just watch the originals.
THE STUFF I LIKED
- Will Smith was better as the Genie than I thought he would be. He did his own thing and didn’t try to imitate Robin Williams, for that I’m thankful. But then again, I do vastly prefer the Genie as Robin Williams portrayed him.
- Jasmine’s new song was great. I really like it.
THE STUFF I THOUGHT WAS BAD
- Jafar. My god.. It’s frightening how bad he was in this movie. I did however like that they fleshed out his character just a teeny tiny bit more.
- A shame Iago was more like a real parrot. I missed him being an ass.
- The ending/last fight is so underwhelming.
Save your cinema money and rent it later if you absolutely have to see it.
I don’t think it’s worth going to the cinemas for. Next up on the live action front for Disney is the Lion King… I’m not to confident in that one..
I’m sorry, the original post was written in Swedish. So here is comes once again, but with some added stuff. Some of the stuff in the Swedish post has been released, another one has finally gotten a release date. So I thought it was about time to update it. And with E3 around the corner, I’m looking forward to see how many games I can add in an upcoming list. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
I really enjoyed the first Trails of Cold Steel game, so naturally I need to have the second game. Not too far from releasing, really looking forward to this one.
Right now I’m saving myself from playing any JRPG’s just because I want to be JRPG rested and fresh for Cold Steel 2. The first one ended on such a cliffhanger so I really want to know what happens!
I’ve had this game on just about every list of games I’m looking forward to, in the last 3-4 years. But now it’s coming to an end! The game finally has a release date and it’s coming very soon! For PS4, Xbox One and PC it will be released on June 21 and it will be released a week later on Switch. I’ve been waiting so long for this game, I’ve always had faith in it. Let’s hope that faith is rewarded. The next post I make with Bloodstained will probably when I either get my copy or my Kickstarter copy of the game.
This is also a title that has been featured in a few other game’s I’m looking forward to lists. I am not a fan of Minecraft but I really enjoyed Dragon Quest Builders, so when they announced the sequel I was ecstatic. Especially when there are so many improvements in the game, I’m gonna have a really good time on this game. And since I’m getting the Switch version I’ll be able to play this game together with my friends in the same room! Couch co-op is the best! The PS4 version will only have multiplayer online, while Switch will have local multiplayer.
I’ve never played the older Ultimate Alliance games, but I’m ready to give this one a try! I need to have more of my Marvel fill, so I’m hoping this will be good.
I’m not particularly hyped for it and I could have waited for it, but yeah this will probably be my chance game of the year. So far at least.
Not really a big fan of SRPG’s, but I’d like to give Fire Emblem a real chance. So why not try this one? If I don’t like it I can always sell it again, but I think it looks at least a bit interesting. At least enough to give it a try.
Probably the biggest surprise for me so far this year! When we where first shown the trailer, I got butterflies in my stomach. The art style, scenery and the feeling about everything… I and many others thought it was a Xenoblade sequel.
But it turned out to be PlatinumGames new and exclusive Nintendo Switch game, which was still a great surprise. PlatinumGames are great with action games, so I think it will be fantastic. Really looking forward to this one!
Saw a trailer for this game some time ago and it looked pretty neat. It’s an action RPG, that takes place in Taipei apparently. I liked what I saw of the trailer, it was recently announced to be released in both Europe and US both physically and digitally.
I don’t really know what more to say about this game, go check out the trailer for yourselves. The game will be released on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in the west.
Well that’s it for this time! Will probably make a new list after E3 is over, when we hopefully have some more dates on a couple of games.
And hopefully some surprise announcements.
My fears have come true. When it was announced that Hideo Baba had left Square Enix I feared the worst for Studio Istolia and their game ”Project Prelude Rune”.
And today the death sentence finally came. Square Enix has confirmed via USgamer.
“Following evaluation of various aspects of Project Prelude Rune, development of the title has been canceled,” a Square Enix representative said. “Studio Istolia is no longer in operation and we have been taking appropriate steps to assign studio staff to other projects within the Square Enix Group.”
So I’m really bummed out now, like seriously. Was so looking forward to a Hideo Baba game that wasn’t a Tales of game and a game he might have gotten a bigger budget for. But sadly dreams do end, I’m just a bit surprised at how hard this affected me.
Sure we just got a teaser trailer for the game, but if what we saw was the kind of style the game would have it was full of color and beautifully cellshaded.
I’m a few days late with these news, but about three days ago Square Enix released a new trailer from their upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake. It’s no secret that I am not a big Final Fantasy VII fan, but this remake has has really hyped for the game.
Much more than the original game ever hyped me. Check out the trailer for yourselves!
I think it looks really good! I’m I am very eager to try this game, for me personally I have nothing against this being more of an Action RPG than a turn based one.
If it’s just as fluid and fun as it is in Kingdom Hearts III, I know that at least I am going to have a very good time with the battles. I’m really digging Aerith’s design, she looks really, really good. Even Cloud looks better than he did in the 2015 reveal.
Sure I’ll miss his banana hair buy what can you do? I know some people really liked his more sickly design, but it didn’t really resonate with me.
Square Enix is going to share more news with us in June when E3 is, I really hope they’ll show more of the characters. I am a bit eager to see Tifa, mostly due to me thinking she’ll get a bit of a redesign… Since I don’t think her original will work with today’s climate on the internet regarding certain designs.
It does feel a bit weird to be hyped about FF7, I wonder if this is what people felt like when they waited for the original to be released.
My biggest hope is that we’ll get some parts that are playable with Zack in this remake, since there seems to be no plans to make a Crisis Core HD. Doesn’t really seem to fit in with the whole way FF7 is going, but then again… If that erases Genesis from FF7 lore that might not be such a bad thing. So tell me. Are you looking forward to this remake?
Why? And why not? I’d love to hear your opinion on it.
At long last Koji Igarashi and the team behind Bloodstained has revealed the release date of the game! And thankfully we will not have to wait all that long!
After god knows how long we will be able to play this game. I’ve waited so long for this, it has been on my lists for upcoming games I’m looking forward to many times now.
The game will be released on June 18th. But the Nintendo Switch version will be release a little bit later, on June 25th. So not all that long.
So enjoy the trailer and see how much they have improved the game. I think it looks really good, but then again I’m one of those who never had problems with how the game looked like from the start. But I do appreciate that it looks prettier now.
I’ll be taking my chance with the Switch version. I pledge $60 on Kickstarter to get the PlayStation 4 version physically, but I think I’m gonna leave that one unopened. Plus I ordered Bloodstained: Curse of The Moon for Switch from Limited Run Games, would be nice to have both physically for Switch.
Då var det äntligen dags! Det första riktiga klippet från Äntligen Nördag är uppe! Förra videon var mer en presentation av mig och Hans. Eftersom vi inte har en separat blogg till Äntligen Nördag så lägger jag upp det här på min sida istället.
Så har man ju någonstans att kunna posta lite extra om det. :)
Kolla gärna in våran YouTube kanal Äntligen Nördag för att se flera videos. Dock är de lite äldre och vi kallade oss Skånespelarna då.
Jag slänger även in presentations videon här så ni kan se den!
Yeah, guess I’m back to write in English. I’ve missed it. So we’ll see how many posts I’ll do, if it will be more I’ll change the stuff of my site to English too.
I found this video yesterday that I thought was funny. It’s buy an group calling themselves Nanowar of Steel. They are apparently a comedy heavy metal band.
The melody in itself is pretty good. But he lyrics are just.. Yeah. Haha.
Just check it out! It’s so weird.
