Similarities Between Anakin Skywalker and Claude Frollo

Image
Actually I'd like to do a comparison of Anakin Skywalker and obviously the novel version of Claude Frollo.  So where do I start?  Here they are:
Both are vowed to celibate positions.  Anakin Skywalker is a Jedi and Claude Frollo is an Archdeacon.  Both of them despite their vows to celibacy yet they have fallen for a certain woman.  In Anakin Skywalker's case, it was really love with Padme Amidala (who his five years his senior) and he did care about her.  Claude Frollo was slowly lusting after Esmeralda (who is probably 25 years or younger his junior) which is different from Anakin Skywalker's.  
Both had noble intentions that ended in tragedy.  Both of them saw each other as righteous, nothing wrong with them and they are better than everyone else yet both took wrong directions.  Anakin Skywalker ended up going to the dark side and Claude Frollo did plenty of things in the novel that even the more sinister version of Claude Frollo (only because his good traits were remo…

Beast Wars Characters and Possible Inspirations

If there was any Transformers series I believe goes to my old shames list is the Beast Wars continuity which is still part of the G1 Franchise.  Why?  Well the Beast Wars series is basically a new set of Autobots (now renamed as the Maximals) and the Decepticons (now the Predacons).  So who do I think inspired who? Aside from the obvious (Megatron and Megatron) here are they:

Optimus Primal is based on Optimus PrimeRhinox is most likely based on Ultra Magnus Cheetor well I think he's based on Hot RodDinobot is most likely based on GreatshotRattrap well he's kinda like HoliAirazor perhaps on ArceeTarantulas is most likely based on Starscream being intelligent and a traitorTerrorsaur is most likely based on Deathsaurus being an energon addict and also StarscreamWaspinator is most likely based on Hellbat

Frieza in Dragon Ball Z

If there was any other villain in Dragon Ball Z that intrigued me it wasn't Cell who was born into the world by artificial biology or the feral Super Buu, it would be Frieza.  That's right- the name that would strike fear TOO MUCH.  So what's the big deal?  He was known to be the son of King Cold yet for some reason, this prince of evil is far more feared than his supposedly more powerful father or his older brother Cooler who sadly only appeared for a short flick only.  So what's the big deal? So he's the one to propagate the idea of survival of the fittest- the strong survive and the weak will perish.  Ah that makes him a real monster quite like Apocalypse of Marvel Comics yet his was at an even BIGGER scale.  Not much is known except he's a spoiled brat to his father and perhaps that's what turned him into a complete monster.  
So what activities has he done?  He normally gets a good planet, orders his subordinates to kill its inhabitants and if that'…

Seriously the DUMBEST Form of Attraction EVER

Image
If girls falling for Spiderman in the 80s-90s without seeing his face wasn't dumb enough, we've got Spike falling for the Pink Samurai Ranger.  Spike falls for the pink ranger by just seeing her in battle.  LOL.  I seriously think this is just stupid.  I mean it's easier to like an ugly person seeing how ugly the are than seeing them with a mask to cover their ugly face.  Oh Spike what's wrong with you?

My Favorite Kamen Rider End Theme of All Time

Despite the fact I'm not much of a Kamen Rider fan now, but thank you Big Brother Kotaro.  Now here's the song "Somebody Loves You" translated into English:


When you're spent after fighting a lonely battle
And feel like sinking
Close your eyes, look up
Just listen closely

Lonely Lonely Heart
The wind will go on whispering
Lonely Lonely Heart
You're not alone

Somebody loves you
Somebody believes in you
Somebody is looking for you
Somewhere, somewhere

When you're hurt and you fall upon your knees
Don't look back, look up
And when you feel sorry about your faraway dreams
Just keep your eyes fixed at the path you'll take

Lonely Lonely Heart
Earth is a planet where love dwells
Lonely Lonely Heart
You're not alone

Somebody loves you
Somebody is searching for you
Somebody is gazing at you
Somewhere, somewhere

Somebody loves you
Somebody believes in you
Somebody is looking for you
Somewhere Somewhere
Always Somewhere

Happy Valentine's Day.  I hope…

Who Really Screwed Up Big Time with Power Rangers?

Image
There are two who I'd consider to have screwed up Power Rangers big time.  They are...


Bruce Kalish

Although he started Power Rangers quite fine for most PR fans (with Power Rangers SPD) but I have to say SPD is plain bad IMO.  Okay SPD did good otherwise it wouldn't be dubbed in Japan now but the whole problem can be this- his succeeding shows were bad to worse. Mystic Force, Jungle Fury and Operation Overdrive were what many PR fans call as bad seasons.  Operation Overdrive happened to be the worst and what Fantasy Leader calls "a cast that's so painful to watch".  Bad acting, unlikable characters and all caused Kalish to be berated afterward.


Jonathan Tzachor

I have to admit Tzachor did good with Wild Force despite the lack of acting.  It's always better to underact than to overact.  Wild Force had some originality in it.  However when he was hired to write for PR Samurai, he screwed up big time with the lack of originality for his cast (oh boy, can't …

Megatron to Galvatron in G1: Villain Decay

Image
Actually if one has to consider Megatron's transformation in Transformers: The Movie, the once powerful and cunning Decepticon leader namely Megatron was transformed into Galvatron by Unicron.  However after the movie, Galvatron became insane thanks to some "plasma bath" he underwent causing him to become a really STUPID leader.  Why?  Just check out the video to find out.  In fact, his insanity is worse than Serpentor's. However he later returned back to his old personality as his previous self for Transformers Headmasters. Sadly...
Galvatron was defeated in the middle of Transformers Headmasters after receiving heavy damage.  He was later resurrected as Super Galvatron.

Mr. Krabs is a Villain

Okay I may be "too old" to be obsessed with Spongebob but I have to say he is NOT setting a good example to people of all ages.  Why?  Here's a list of reasons why:

He's plain greedy and he'll do anything just to get money and not to spend it.  In fact, he's just so cheap it causes Pearl Krabs to go crazy.  One has to consider these things:


Making his employees at the Krusty Krab pay him for their services, which is a hint of extortion or swindling.In the short endless summer, Mr. Krabs was trying to make global warming even worse to make temperatures rise drasticly, just to make more money for the public pool he opened.He copies a dollar bill into a printing machine that creates hundreds of copied images of dollars. This is called counterfeiting which is extremely illegal.In the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, he made Sandy pay more money to see the grand opening of the Krusty Krab 2 than everyone else most likely because she is a land animal, which is illegal s…
