Review by: coolkid73

The Legend of Zelda is a video game series everybody has heard of, whether you’re a gamer or not. In 2003, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker was released for the Nintendo Gamecube. It was then re-released in 2013 for the Wii U under the name Wind Waker HD.

In this game, Ganon has returned and has kidnapped Link’s sister. Link must now travel to several different islands, get items, and defeat enemies. This game uses anime style graphics to make it cartoony, which is only in the Gamecube original. The Wii U remaster upgrades to HD graphics.

One of the biggest alterations between the versions is the huge triforce hunt near the end. The locations of the triforce shards are switched, and so are the locations of some other items. The soundtrack is a mixture of calm, upbeat, chaotic, and adventurous songs. The Wii U remaster upgrades some of the songs to sound more realistic.

If you are new to Zelda games, this is the game I recommend you try out first. If you ask me which version I prefer, I would have to say the Gamecube original because that’s the one I grew up with, but most other people prefer the Wii U remaster. This game is fun, so I give it a 10/10.

Fun fact: If you own an older model of the original Wii, you can play Gamecube games on your Wii. You will need a copy of the game you are playing, a GameCube controller, and a GameCube memory card to play. You’ll know its an older model because it has four controller ports and two memory card slots at the top.

I begin tucking him into bed when he tells me, “Daddy, check for monsters under my bed.” I do it for his amusement and see him, another him, staring at me, quivering with fear and whispering “Daddy, there’s somebody on my bed.”

My daughter won’t stop crying in the middle of the night. I visit her grave and ask her to stop, but it doesn’t help.

There is a picture in my phone of me sleeping. I live alone.

My wife woke up to tell me there was an intruder in our house. She was murdered by an intruder years ago.

I tuck my daughter into bed and she says “Goodbye, daddy.” I tell her that at nighttime we say good night, but then she says “No daddy, tonight it’s goodbye.”

The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door.

Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope

Review by: coolkid73

Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope is the fourth chronological movie in the Star Wars series. It was the first movie made, released in 1977. When it came out it was just titled Star Wars. Episodes V and VI were released afterwards, but did not have the Episode V or Episode VI in the titles. Episodes I, II, and III were released as a prequel trilogy, which causes this movie and the others to be re-releases with the titles we know them as today. Now, back to this movie.

Darth Vader has kidnapped Princess Leia in an attempt to regain the plans to the Death Star. She hides the plans in the memory of a droid known as R2-D2. He and his friend C3-PO escape and land on the planet Tattoine, where they are rescued by Luke Skywalker. After revealing Princess Leia’s message, R2-D2, Luke, C3-PO, and Obi-Wan Kenobi seek Han Solo and his co-pilot Chewbaca to fly them to the planet Alderaan, only to find out it has been destroyed. The wind up on the Death Star where Han and Luke leave to search for Leia. They manage to rescue her, but can they escape? The only way to find out is to watch this movie yourself.

This movie is filled with action and I recommend it to any action movie lovers out there.

Cars 3

Review by: coolkid73

Cars 3 is the third movie in the Cars series and was released in theaters on June 16, 2017. Just like the other movies in the series, it takes place in a world inhabited by talking cars.

With the newer generation of racers taking over and having access to newer technology, Lightning McQueen starts to lose his races. While attempting to gain first place, he tries too hard and suffers a major crash, causing many to ask the question, “Is Lightning McQueen’s career finished forever?”

After four years of hiding, Lightning attempts to start training in order to beat the newer generation. He seeks help from fellow trainer Cruz Ramirez, but she treats him like an old man and he ends up being unable to handle the new technology. They have practice races before Lightning decides to do what his friend Doc Hudson did and train her instead, having her take his place at the next race.

This movie is amazing and has some really mature themes in it. Some parts are boring, but most of it is good. The plot is really interesting and is something most people wouldn’t see coming. There are a lot of funny scenes in this movie, like the demolition derby and beach race. I totally recommend you check this movie out. Because this movie is good with some boring parts, it gets a 9/10.

“Paid in Full” by Eric B. and Rakim

Review by: Coolkid73

“Paid in Full” is a song by rap duo Eric B. and Rakim. The duo consists of rapper Rakim and DJ Eric B. The song “Paid in Full” was the sixth song on their debut album of the same name. This song has Rakim rapping about what it’s like to be rich and the problems with paying your taxes. The song is catchy and the beat is cool. Eric B. made the beats for all of their songs. This beat features an aggressive drum beat, a simple bass line, and some flutes. This song is a pleasure to listen to so make sure you give it a listen. The goodness of this song gives it a 10/10.

Click here to listen to the song on Youtube. (Please note that this is the version you hear on the Paid In Full album, not the version you hear in the music video).

 

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Review by: coolkid73

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the seventh game in the Grand Theft Auto series released in 2004 for PlayStation 2, and in 2005 for PC and Xbox. A high definition remaster was later released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2015. This game is set in the fictional city of San Andreas, and follows Carl “CJ” Johnson and his friends Ryder, Sweet, OG “Jeffery” Loc, and Big Smoke as they try to rid the city of a rival gang. This game is addictive to play and is loads of fun.

The best part of the game is the music. While in a car, you have access to various radio stations. One is a talk show, and the rest play music. This game uses rock, reggae, heavy metal, gangsta rap, and various other genres of music. All songs used in the game are real songs made by real people.

This game has loads of missions, involving stuff like beating up drug dealers, stealing crates of guns from a guy’s house, catching and killing a guy, stealing a famous rapper’s rhyme book, and so much more.

This game has loads of fun missions and loads of weapons, like batons, golf clubs, and, of course, guns. This game is fun so I give it a 10/10. I hope you try this game yourself.

The Three Stooges Collection, Volume 1

three-stooges-largeReview by: coolkid73

During the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, there was a comedy trio known as The Three Stooges, which consisted of actors Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Howard . They made 190 short films, and in the late 90s their shorts were released in a DVD series known as The Three Stooges Collection, which had eight volumes. This review is only about the first one, which features their first 19 short films. These shorts have been remastered in high definition and high quality sound, but are still in black and white. Here are some of my favorite shorts on this DVD.

“Men In Black”- In this short, The Stooges are doctors who can’t do their jobs. The jokes in this short are hilarious. It can be kind of boring to watch, but if you can understand the jokes, it’s really funny.

“Pop Goes the Easel”- In this short, The Stooges steal brooms from a store and hide in an art school to escape the police. This short has some great jokes, but the most interesting part is the huge clay fight towards the end.

“False alarms”- In this short, The Stooges work at a fire station but mess up every task and steal the chief’s car. It is a little too long in my opinion, but it’s funny to see The Stooges mess up every task they’re given and wreck the chief’s car.

“Whoops I’m an Indian”- In this short the stooges hide out in Native American disguises but are in trouble when they meet a guy whose wife just ran off with Native Americans. The humor is at its best here.

Hope you have enjoyed this reveiw and be sure to buy this DVD for yourself, or check it out on YouTube. Thanks for reading.
