Summer 2017

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Honestly, I have a whole pile of half-finished articles sitting on my hard drive, but for some reason I’m having a hard time finishing anything. Motivation is hard to come by.

I figured I’d take a chapter out of someone else’s book and just write some short thoughts on various things I’ve been thinking of.

Review! Gravity Falls Series Finale (Part 2–Post-Thoughts)

Post-Thoughts:

When I first finished Weirdmeggedon Part 3, I wasn’t sure what to think. I didn’t feel satisfied because I felt that there were a bunch of questions unanswered. For example, what was Dipper’s real name? What happened to Time Baby? What
Screenshot72a158ahappened to Blendin (and really the rest of the space time guys)? Is there significance that some characters have 4 fingers, some have 5, and Ford has 6 (other than Ford is an anomoly)? I know that Time Baby and Blendin were disinigrated by Bill, but I thought that was kind of a quick anti-climactic ending for them. I figured that they would show up in the last episode and help Dipper and Mabel beat Bill once and for all, but that didn’t happen. I was never one of those extremely perceptive viewers who were able to crack all the different codes in the show, and after digging around the internet a bit I saw that some of the questions I thought were unanswered were actually answered in the codes. For example, one of the codes at the end of the episode said (from gravityfalls.wikia.com),

IT WILL TAKE 1,000 YEARS FOR TIME BABY’S MOLECULES TO RECONSTITUTE, AND WHEN HE’S BACK, HE’S GOING TO BE VERY CRANKY.

As for Dipper’s real name, people say that it was hidden on the tree with all the writing on it at the end. Regardless, after watching the episode these questions (and more) were burning in my head, but after searching around the internet I realized that most of these questions were actually answered in a secret way. I guess in this day and age where the internet makes sharing information so easy it’s not a big deal, but I can only imagine if there was no internet (or I decided not to look for it) then I would never find that information.

News! Tangled TV Show

Tangled-Poster-disney-18638629-1012-1500There is going to be a new Disney Channel Original Series based on the Tangled movie!

Personally, I would have liked another movie, but you have to work with what you got. Let’s face it, even without seeing the tv show I know that it will not be as good as the movie and it will not have all the elements that made the movie a big hit, but it has the potential to be something halfway decent (maybe).

I have mixed thoughts on this new project of Disney. As most of us know, Disney has made plenty of TV spin-offs from their big box office movies, but  not all of them can be considered a critical sucess. My biggest fear is the way that the show will be animated and my biggest comfort is that much of the original talent will be returning to take part in the show.
