I enjoyed the film known as Juan of the Dead. It depicts a forty year old man in Cuba who has dedicated his life to doing absolutely nothing and he has a band of sidekicks and misfits who were just as lazy as he was. When the zombie apocalypse comes to Cuba, Juan and his merry men set a zombie killing business with the slogan, “Juan of the Dead. We kill your loved ones. How can we help you?” The film was super funny with good humor as a former slacker finds his purpose in life.
I have watched the first 23 episodes on the anime known as Fairy Tail. For some time, I did not know if I was going to like this anime, but I was pleasantly surprised when I started watching. I loved each characters’ eccentricities and the camaraderie they shared. I also noticed that the creature known as Plue was a character in another anime I watched as a kid, Rave Master. Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying this anime and would recommend it to anyone who is seeking good humor, epic action, and heartfelt storytelling.
One of the most infamous supervillains would have to be Doomsday because he was the one who killed Superman. The chaos, death, and destruction he leaves in his wake certainly earn him his name. His duel with Superman was easily one of the most epic hero/villain battles I have ever seen. This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, Doomsday being the unstoppable force and Superman being the immovable object. In addition, I like Doomsday’s ability to regenerate from any injury and adapt to it so that he could not be beaten the same way twice. This power easily makes him one of Superman’s deadliest enemies because he keeps coming back stronger and more durable than before.
I just finished watching a new anime, Lord Marksman and Vanadis. I loved this anime because it had fantasy elements yet it was similar to medieval Europe in terms of military tactics and politics. The characters were very likable and the story was so compelling that I did not want to stop. I would recommend this anime to anyone who is seeking a good fantasy story.
I started watching the anime, One Punch Man, which depicted an overpowered superhero who could literally defeat any and every opponent with a single punch. When I first heard about this anime, I was initially reluctant to watch it because I normally don’t like protagonists that were overpowered. After watching the first six episodes, I rather like One Punch Man because it has a sublime sense of humor and was a nice parody on the superhero genre. In the superhero genre, the hero always defeats the villain in the end, but it does not often explore what happens after the fight. One Punch Man was a clever satire on this idea and it reminded me of Popeye, who I loved when I was a kid. Also, this story also explores the conflict of a character with godly power who suffers from an existential crisis and a desire to find a worthy opponent. There was even one joke in the anime that highlights that despite all that strength, all that power, and being able to defeat any and every monster and villain with a single punch, the main character could not kill a little mosquito. I would recommend One Punch Man to anyone who is seeking a stunning parody on the superhero genre.

To further celebrate Christmas, I went to a mixture between a deli and winery and sampled a piece of classic gouda cheese. It was creamy and tasted similar to cheddar cheese, but with a stronger aftertaste. Overall, that was some good gouda! In medieval times, cheese was a common dish because it was a way to preserve milk and help with digestion. They believed that it helped calm down the “cauldron” of the stomach. I shall keep this in mind as I continue to write the delicacies in my fantasy world.

I enjoyed the season premiere of Game of Thrones. Even though it was only a warm up episode that set the stage for the season, I liked it. I was particularly giddy when I saw that complete justice for the Red Wedding was finally done. I was equally giddy when I saw that the Lannisters became the weakest faction in the War of the Five Kings and are desperate for resources and allies. Also, we got to see undead giants in the White Walker army. We saw how much effort it takes to kill a live giant so re-killing an undead one is going to be even more difficult and dangerous. When Euron Greyjoy appeared, I expected him to be as badly portrayed as he was last season, but I was pleased that he was better portrayed. The Mad Kraken even gave a playful smile when he saw the Mountain lumber towards him, which shows just how crazy Euron Greyjoy is. I hear that this season Euron Greyjoy will make Ramsay Snow and King Joffrey look like children by comparison. We also got to see the Hound find faith in the Gods and show a clear hint to the Grave Digger theory. So far, Jon Snow is doing good as the new King in the North, but as long as Littlefinger is present and whispering in Sansa’s ear the stability of Jon’s reign is put into question. Finally, Daenerys Targaryen finally came home to her family’s ancestral seat of Dragonstone. Even though there was no dialogue in this scene until the very end, I loved the tension and suspense it possessed. When Daenerys lands on the beach and touches the sand, it reminds me of what Henry Tudor did when he landed in Wales during the War of the Roses. After landing in the Welsh beaches, Henry Tudor fell to his knees in prayer and said, “Judge me Lord and favor my cause.” I think Daenerys was doing something similar when she touched the sand and we all know that Henry Tudor’s prayer was answered so the same can happen with Daenerys. Now Daenerys is about to follow in the footsteps of her ancestor Aegon the Conqueror as she begins planning the new War of Conquest.
