Two Wolves - TaleA Old Cherokee Chief was teaching his grandson about life
"A fight is going on inside me." he said to the Boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves"
"One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superority, self-doubt, and ego."
"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truith, compassion, and faith."
"The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person too!"
The Grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his Grandfather "which wolf will win?"

Do Not CryDo not stand at my grave and weep:
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the softly fallen snow;
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the field of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the grateful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
So do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

LOK: Enter The Void/Venom Of The Red Lotus Review
Hey everybody. Well, here we are. The finale of this season. It certainly wrapped up quicker than last years, and its broadcasting certainly wasn’t as straightforward. With that said, let’s take a look at the two episode finale of season 3!
What I Liked
The Fight Scenes
I know it should go without saying that the fight scenes in these episodes were bloody fantastic, but considering that they took up a large chunk of both episodes then it is truly impressive how consistently well animated and well choreographed they were. A lot of various Bending abilities were on display here and seeing how these powers played off each other was damn impressive.
The last fight was a fittingly massive battle between Korra and Zaheer, and does feel reminiscent of the epic battle between Aang and Ozai. It was Zaheer largely evading Korra whilst she was on a rampage, but unlike Ozai who was running to save his hide, we know that for Zaheer it’s to stall her whilst
Batman Begins Review
If you can't take personal opinions that may or may not agree with your own opinions, do not read this review. Also, this review contains spoilers.
After all the history I have with this movie, of my opinions going down and up and down... it has now steadily been going down and more down. Rewatching it now again for this review, I hate to admit it... but I think Batman Begins is a pretty bad movie. Not just as an adaptation of Year One, not just as an adaptation of Batman period... but as a movie just in general.
It's a very influential movie and I think it did some great things for the superhero genre (bad things too, but anyway). But to quote Bennett the Sage - a movie can be influential without being good. And to me, this movie isn't even remotely good. Is there a good movie hidden in here? Yes. And guess what? They dug out that movie from it and made the animated movie Batman: Year One. You know, based on the comic Batman Begins was based on? It's fun

Nukid101's Top 30 Comic Book Films: 30 - 26
Welcome everybody to my newest countdown. With Korra done, I’ve got the time to focus on counting off my favourite comic book films of all time; of course when I say comic book I am not ruling out graphic novels and manga, for which there will be entries to both.
One thing that needs bearing in mind folks is that this countdown is based on my favourite at the moment. Since we are living in the Golden Age of Comic Book films, there will undoubtedly be comic books film that would become one of my top 30 favourites. Why next year films like Kingsman: The Secret Service or Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron have very good chances of rankin very high on my list, so please understand folks that this list of mine is not set in stone. It is likely to change.
With that, let’s kick it off with part 1, featuring choices 30 to 26!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review
A group of mutated warriors face off against an evil kingpin who wants to take over New York. This is Rumor Control, here are the facts. Since it was revealed that a new Ninja Turtles film would be produced by Michael Bay the internet went nuts. Every bit of news that came out form the movie was met with immediate criticism and outrage. The whole world wrote it off as a bad film which may have been the right mind set since the film holds an abysmal 19% on Rotten Tomatoes. I, however, find these reviews to be overly critical and miss the point. I see this as mob mentality, a sort of unwritten rule that Michael Bay must be despised no matter what. Granted the man is deserving of criticism, mostly for his rampant humor (which tends to ruin his films more often then making them funny) and lack of focus on characters but I still find most of his films to be simple, dumb and fun entertainment. So I went in to TMNT with an open mind (after all I am the only person in the world who loves the t
Hogwarts' quality and Dumbledore's reputationI found an interesting short essay from HP Lexicon and it made me think about it even deeper than it goes.
First off; please don't get me wrong.
I love Dumbledore's character, I love Lockhart's character, I love Hogwarts, and I love, love, love the books and the HP universe. I'm just wondering and interested in what, if anything, is behind all this I'm about to discuss.
That if Rowling possibly actually planned this somehow and for some reason many parents in that universe are willing to over-look huge problems and risk their children's lives because of someone's status and previous reputation...OR if this is just unfortunate illogicness because of her coming up with awesome general storylines and interesting characters and not thinking some of them enough throroughly.
So, Hogwarts is supposed to be concidered "the finest wizarding school" in the world I guess as there's only one in each country. And Dumbledore is supposedly concidered "the best Headmaster Hogwarts has ever seen

TEN HUT! Howdy there my fellow soldiers. Brian and Zeus here with our next review fresh from the oven.
Zeus: Mmmmmmmm! I love the smell of helpful information in the morning
Soooo…yeah, today we’ve got a review of the utmost weirdest. Usually its self-explanatory that when we have something to review, it’d obviously be either bad or good. This is not the case today. Today we have something that is…questionable. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it meh? You be the judge….or you know…just read this review
Zeus: What we’re about to review is something that will blow you
'Psycho (1960)' Review I’ve seen a fair amount of movies I’ve loved. There are quite a few movies I’ve seen and been wonderfully entertained and touched by. I’m glad to count many of these movies among my favorites. But not all of these movies have embodied everything I love in movies. There are only a handful of films that have shown me everything I love about this beautiful art and why I love it. Films such as Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, King Kong, or Batman are counted among that number. And the most recent addition to that list is Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, which has quite possibly more than any other film I’ve ever seen shown me why I love movies.
The screenplay is brilliantly constructed. Janet Leigh plays Marion Crane, a normal, good woman who’s put in a stressful situation that drives her to steal a large amount of money. She takes off and takes shelter in a motel owned by a cree
Hope vs. Despair Theme: PMMM vs. DRHope vs. Despair Theme: Madoka Magica vs. Dangan Ronpa
Now, I would like to start this off with a bit of background – about what my personal reasoning for doing this is – and other various things that describe exactly what you’re about to read, including a brief description for anyone who doesn’t know what the preceding titles are.
Myself: I am a casual gamer, which I tend to personally take as meaning that I love video games and really enjoy playing them – more so than I would say for watching anime, which I would claim I’m just a whatever-seems-really-cool type of person. I’m also going to be going into my second year of college, majoring in psychology, so Dangan Ronpa is right up my alley of Ooh! Because of these combined things – mostly the former – this isn’t actually a review. It’s more like a minor critique/comparison of what I feel.
