This Is US – Season 1 and 2 Review

It's not often that I choose to write about (or really even choose to watch) American television. That's because in my opinion, the writing in American drama is often inferior and the characters not as emotionally engaging as Asian dramas. Season 2 had already started when I finally got around to watching Season 1 of This Is Us, the show that would change my opinion of American Dramas. - Don't get me wrong. I love me some drama regardless of what country it originates from.. but I distinctively recall for example, when "Fault of Our Stars" came out, how much praise it was being given, as being the saddest movie of all time, ever, by radio and TV critics and movie-goers across our nation. I watched the film and was left feeling, mostly, nothing at all. That's IT?! I thought to myself as I c

Final Fantasy XV Review

It's been awhile since we've done a review around here with the holidays and all. It's time to fix that. Having just finished FFXV over the weekend, that seems the best candidate for a review this week. I've been a fan of Final Fantasy for a long time, ever since "Mystic Quest" on the SNES. Final Fantasy 6 (3 in America) is still my favorite in the series. I've played every Final Fantasy Game since the 16 bit era. And I'm "strange" I know, but I don't really like FF7, not as much as everyone else seems to be in love with that game. But Final Fantasy in general always holds a special place in my heart. If I had to rank my favorite FF games that I've played from best to worst, it would look something like this when using the corresponding Japanese numbers for each title... With the newest ga...

Yobi the Five Tailed Fox | Anime Review | Korean Film | Korean Anime | Korean Animation | Korean Animated Film | Korean Movie | South Korea

While not technically an anime, per say, since it is not from Japan, Yobi the Five Tailed Fox is an excellent family film that has a similar style to that of Studio Ghibli. The story of Yobi the Five Tailed Fox tells us a Korean folk tale legend about Kitsune like creatures who could become human if they stole a human's soul. Because of that belief, that the foxes could steal souls, they became hunted almost to extinction. Except for Yobi, the "young" (if 100 years old is young) fox who lives in the forest with her farting alien family who are trying to repair their spaceship to return home. One of her family members wanders into a summer camp for humans near the forest one day and Yobi goes to the camp in her human form to try to convince the alien to return back home. However, once Yob...
