Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers


Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, you either remember them from your childhood or you just found them on Disney Plus. The cartoon was a spin-off of The Rescuers franchise and they added in Chip and Dale. Like most Disney shows back then it had a kick-ass theme song and a bunch of merch. So when they announced there would be a reboot of shorts I thought it would be a well-written and still funny series like Ducktales. Instead, it was a great meta film that gave us an update on the “Toontown” world that was initially made in the Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The movie is in good hands tho, whose hands? It's the people behind Lonely Island. What could go wrong?

The film talks about a fall from grace and the separation of the dynamic duo. It put a focus on the characters knowing each other since childhood and perfected the vaudeville-style act. That eventually got them the TV show where Chip ( voiced by John Mulaney) plays the straight man and Dale ( voiced by Andy Sandberg) plays the comedy relief on the show. Dale didn't feel appreciated and eventually left to go solo. That caused the show itself to get canceled and his solo outing crashed and burned. Like most stars with their best days behind them, he finds himself working the convention circuit signing autographs he event paid to be rendered in 3-D  with hopes of getting more work.



 While chip has walked away from the entire industry as a whole and lives a life of solitude. Besides his pet dog. A friend in need reaches out to both of them. Will they be able to settle their issues and solve a real mystery? 

Toons are getting kidnapped without a trace. They end up traveling to the Uncanny Valley. A land where a lot of CGI characters look slightly off and most of them have expressionless faces. This is still one of the funniest jokes in the film especially if you are a movie person. The main villain of the movie might be the darkest story point that I can't help but feel was intentional on the writer's part.

Peter Pan has been kidnapping toons altering their look to make low-budget versions of Disney films. He started it out of spite because Disney cast him out when he got too old. They didn't even help him get new work. This is what happened to the original voice actor Bobby Driscoll. Sadly he became a heroin addict and died at 30. The writers of this movie are sharp so they made a villain we can understand. Plus we have all seen knockoff Disney movies before so making it all come together is awesome. 



This movie despite a few predictable moments has a lot of heart. Just enough that allows me to not scold it for obvious plot points. The execution is admirable and they stick the landing for this to be the director's first big outing I think he did a fantastic job. The only issue I have with the film is the voice acting of John Mulaney. His voice is too cynical all the time in the film and it takes me out of it. He does nothing new to his voice as Chip he might as be Seth Rogen. All I see in most of the is Andrew from Big Mouth. Thus making this an almost perfect movie. I would like to see more stories from this world. The easter eggs are too many counts.         

Yes Ugly Sonic is a God Tier 

The film is a fun one and has high replay value. I'm not sure how much kids will appreciate it, but the kid at heart.

Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers: Final Grade B+ 

Tuesday, April 18, 2023


 I have been a fan of Halo since day one. Not only the video game series but the books and comics as well. There are so many good stories in there that could be told on the big screen. Initially, there was an announcement back in 2011 by Steven Speilberg that he would head up a Halo series. Of course, nothing came of it. If you haven't seen it here is the link to judge for yourself HALO

Meanwhile, the dawn of fan films came about and you saw creators making their own halo stories based on and around the lore. Making a movie should be easy. In 2017 I wrote about why there hasn't been one yet check it out here But in 2022 behold the 10 million dollars per episode epic which is Halo. An Epic fucking disaster. The series which should have easily been a slam dunk went out of its way to be a failure and since it was contracted out for 2 seasons it's safe to say that the streaming platform paramount plus is already behind the curve because Star Trek can't save a whole service. But allow me to dive in a bit.

The showrunners thought it would be best to not play the video games or look at the already-established lore. That's like someone asking for steak at a restaurant and you being to cook pigs butt. They misunderstood the whole assignment. First of all, they call it the Silver timeline to make it clear that this isn't related to any of the 20 years of work already laid down. This is just a lazy way of saying “ We didn't play any of the games or read any of the material” which we find out late is a lie. As the show goes on we find that they did know the source material just enough to mutate it for the sake of their own story. They use the fact that the doctor behind the Spartan Program was able to make clones of people but the clones would eventually die of sickness. 

Then we have the Master Chief. A shadow of his former self in so many ways. Not only does he seem to spend a lot of time out of his armor. He is also sexualized with nude & sex scenes. The sex scene is with a character that is made up for the show and is supposed to be the enemy. The Master Chief is played by Pablo Schreiber who some of you might remember from “ Orange is the New Black” and the show American Gods. review for that here

The showrunners made it about putting a face to the chief. But not for the sake of storytelling. If it were for storytelling they would have held back on it as Jon Faveru did for The Mandalorian. We didn't see his face till the end of the first season. They blew their load at the end of the first episode. On top of that, this version of the character hasn't earned anything from the viewer to even understand his new motives or ambitions because they decided to make their own story. But they wanted us to fill in the blanks with what we already know but none of it matches!! All these squares don't make a damn circle


These secondary characters are bland!!! Kwan Ha takes up so much of the season's runtime with a bland by-the-numbers story that could have been in an entirely other bland show. Not only is her story bland but the character is unbearable and I hope the character (not the actor) dies. The other character Makee was predictable. She was raised by the covenant and is becoming a mole to get to the MC and kill him. It was so tiring and I wished this wasn't here. Of all the secondary characters there was only one decent enough to mention and that is. Soren is played by Bokeem Woodbine. 

He's an escaped Spartan turned space pirate/mercenary. He has charisma but a lot of

what he does is predictable, to say the least


They had all of these books to adapt. But instead, they spit in the face of the fans who have been here since the day keeping the franchise strong. The showrunner's hubris is deafening. Show creators that are barely seasoned in my opinion with shows like LoneStar, The Last Ship, and American Dad under their belts this feels like a setup. We were teased with Steven Speilberg & Neil Blomkamp a decade ago but ended up with Steven Kane and Kyle Killen. It's ordering a Filet Mignon and lobster but they bought you a burnt hamburger and shitty popcorn shrimp. If this is what Halo is serving I would rather starve. Don’t forget this is the same studio behind the Sonic movies a franchise that by all accounts should have failed.

More then just Rocky in the sticks


Sylvester Stallone is back the time he’s not playing Rocky. I saw a few clips of this show on

Instagram reels, which caught my curiosity. So I decided to check it out on Paramount Plus

with other hit shows like HALO.

I can’t judge a full streaming service by one show so let me tell you about it.

Stallone is Dwight “The General” Manfredi, a capo in the Mob Family that spent the last 25 years

in prison. Now that he is out he was hoping to be welcomed back into the organization with

open arms. The reality was a bit different he saw time go by while he was inside and treated like

he's almost been forgotten. So they do not have to look him in the face with shame they give

him a new assignment in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They want him to go out there and make money the

mobsters do security, shakedowns, drugs, etc. So we got a fish out of water story only this fish

can knock a guy out in one hit.

The show gives you a great mixture of everything. It has its funny moments with his valet Tyson

or his weed shop owner or him just learning how Uber works. There are also moments of real

emotion. I haven’t cried on a Stallone project since Rocky 2. He's also very menacing it kinda

reminds me of someone.

The show is top-notch. The creator of Yellowstone Taylor Sheridan has another hit on his

hands. The show has been picked up for a second season which I'm grateful for. You noticed I

didn't give away the show because I want you to watch and feel what felt while watching.

Stallone hasn't skipped a beat he reintroducing himself in this one. I’m here for it seriously this is

one of the best shows on the app. I wouldn't be surprised if down the road there are awards in

the show's future. My first dose of the app was Halo Beavis and Butthead kept me hanging

around and I’m glad I did. Tulsa KIng is a knockout ( pun intended)

The Evolution of Superhero Movies: From Batman to the MCU

 Superhero movies have become a staple in the entertainment industry, captivating audiences with their larger-than-life characters, epic battles, and thrilling storylines. From the early days of Batman and Superman to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the superhero movie genre has evolved significantly over the years. In this article, we'll take a closer look at the history of superhero movies, from their humble beginnings to their status as global box office powerhouses.

The Early Days of Superhero Movies

The first superhero movies date back to the 1940s, with the release of the original Superman and Batman films. These movies were notable for their colorful costumes, heroic characters, and simple, straightforward storylines. They were largely geared toward younger audiences and aimed to provide wholesome entertainment in a time of war and political unrest.

Over the next few decades, superhero movies continued to be a popular genre, with notable adaptations of comic books like the 1978 Superman movie and the 1989 Batman movie. These movies brought a new level of sophistication to the genre, with more complex plots, darker themes, and higher production values.

The Rise of Marvel

In 2008, Marvel Studios released Iron Man, which kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and marked a turning point for superhero movies. The film was a critical and commercial success, and it spawned a whole series of interconnected movies that have since become some of the highest-grossing films of all time.

The MCU was unique in its approach to the superhero genre, focusing on character development, interconnected storylines, and a shared universe that allowed for crossovers and team-ups between different heroes. The success of the MCU also paved the way for other Marvel adaptations, like the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises. In the early 2000s, Marvel was struggling financially and had sold off the film rights to some of their most popular characters, including Spider-Man and the X-Men. However, in 2008, they took a chance on a risky project: a movie centered on a relatively unknown character, Iron Man.

Directed by Jon Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Iron Man was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $585 million worldwide. It was the first film in what would become the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a shared universe where characters from different films would cross over and interact with each other.

Following the success of Iron Man, Marvel released a series of interconnected films that culminated in The Avengers in 2012. The film, directed by Joss Whedon and starring an ensemble cast including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth, became a cultural phenomenon and grossed over $1.5 billion at the box office.

The success of the MCU allowed Marvel to regain control of the film rights to some of their most popular characters, such as Spider-Man and the Hulk. It also inspired other studios to try and create their own shared universes, such as Sony's attempt with the Amazing Spider-Man films and Universal's Dark Universe.

Marvel continued to release successful films in the years that followed, including sequels to their popular franchises and new standalone films introducing new characters. In addition to their success on the big screen, Marvel also began producing television shows for streaming services like Netflix and Disney+, further expanding their universe.

The MCU has become one of the biggest movie franchises in the world, grossing over $22 billion at the box office. It has also had a significant impact on the superhero movie genre as a whole, inspiring other studios to create shared universes and setting a new standard for interconnected storytelling in movies.

The Dark Knight and DC

While Marvel was dominating the superhero movie landscape with its interconnected universe, DC was struggling to find its footing. However, in 2005, director Christopher Nolan released Batman Begins, a gritty and realistic take on the Dark Knight that was praised for its dark tone and complex characters.

The Dark Knight trilogy, which concluded in 2012, is widely regarded as one of the best superhero movie franchises of all time, and it set a new standard for the genre. However, DC has struggled to replicate that success with its own cinematic universe, with mixed receptions for movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. After the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC Comics attempted to create their own shared universe with the release of Man of Steel in 2013. The film, directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Superman, was a moderate success at the box office but received mixed reviews from critics and audiences.

In 2016, DC released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which pitted two of their most iconic characters against each other. The film was highly anticipated but ultimately disappointed both critically and commercially, grossing just over $873 million worldwide.

However, DC found success with the release of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, which consisted of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises. The films, which starred Christian Bale as Batman, were dark and gritty reimaginings of the character and were praised for their performances and storytelling.

The Dark Knight, in particular, is often cited as one of the greatest superhero movies of all time, thanks in large part to Heath Ledger's iconic performance as the Joker. The film grossed over $1 billion at the box office and received widespread critical acclaim, earning several Academy Award nominations and a posthumous Oscar for Ledger's performance.

In response to the success of the MCU, DC attempted to create their own shared universe with the release of films like Justice League and Suicide Squad, but these films were met with mixed reviews and failed to match the success of Marvel's universe.

DC has continued to release standalone films featuring its popular characters, such as Wonder Woman and Aquaman, which have been both critical and commercial successes. However, their attempts to replicate the success of the MCU and create a successful shared universe have largely been unsuccessful.

Overall, while DC has had some success with its superhero films, they have struggled to match the success of the MCU and create a cohesive and successful shared universe. The Dark Knight trilogy remains a standout in the genre, but DC has yet to find a formula that works as well as Marvel's interconnected universe.

The Future of Superhero Movies

Despite some mixed receptions, superhero movies continue to be a popular genre, with new releases coming out every year. Some of the most anticipated upcoming releases include Blue Beetle, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and Into The Spider-Verse

One trend that has emerged in recent years is a move towards more diversity and inclusion in superhero stories. Movies like Black Panther, which featured a predominantly black cast, and Captain Marvel, which starred a Muslim female superhero, have been celebrated for breaking barriers and representing underrepresented groups in a positive light.

In addition to diversity, there has also been an increase in experimentation with different genres within the superhero genre. Movies like Deadpool and Logan, for example, took a more mature approach to the genre, with R-rated content and a focus on character development rather than just action sequences. This has allowed for greater creativity and expanded the possibilities for storytelling within the genre.

Furthermore, the inclusion of diverse characters and the exploration of different genres have the potential to attract new audiences and keep the genre fresh and exciting. It also sends a message of inclusivity and representation, which can be empowering for underrepresented groups who see themselves reflected on the big screen.

Overall, while the superhero genre may have its detractors, it continues to evolve and adapt to changing cultural and societal norms. The move towards diversity and experimentation with different genres is a welcome development, and it will be interesting to see where the genre goes from here.


The superhero movie genre has come a long way since the early days of Batman and Superman, evolving into a global phenomenon that shows no signs of slowing down. From the rise of Marvel to the gritty realism of the Dark Knight trilogy, the genre has undergone significant changes over the years. With new releases coming out every year and a continued focus on diverse characters and storylines, the future of superhero movies looks bright.
