Superhero films aren’t really my thing. Ever since the giant Marvel superhero craze of the late 2000’s, it’s just been non-stop blockbuster after blockbuster—commercials, sponsorships, specific actors everywhere. I got sick of it all very quickly. Even before then, superhero films were kind of an “empty calories” sort of enjoyment, where I could just enjoy some dumb good vs. evil plot and some rad special effects.

Guess what, everyone? I don’t have any history with this film or anyone involved with it. That can only mean one thing: I will talk about the film without fluffing up the word count talking about myself! Cue thunderous applause!

I’m not even going to provide a witty introduction this time. My old review’s introduction is all the set-up one needs. Continue reading “Day Fourteen: Machete (MotM 2020)”

Pay little mind to the “DROPPED” label up top. For convenience’s sake, I labeled it as such because I won’t be returning to it this month, but have decided to only place it “on-hold” for now. It’s not that I find it bad, just that it isn’t holding my attention enough for me to desire continuous bingeing. I’ll return to it once this is all over.

(This post was heavily inspired by Karandi’s recent post on the perceived quantity of light novel adaptations within the anime medium. While this will not cover her topic in the exact same way, I would recommend you also look at that post, as well.) Continue reading “A Statistical Look at My Experience with Light Novel Adaptations”
The possibility is likely that the person reading this right now is not someone who has been a follower of my blog for more than a year or so. Because of this, you are unaware that throughout my time as an anime connoisseur, I have been prone to a few burnouts, particularly when another interest has taken over my circuiting. The usual suspects include the other major interests of my person—whether football (Americano), video games, or film, but may also include a swelling of responsibilities that make anime seem like a wasted time in comparison.
