9 Acclaimed Movies… That I Cannot Stand

So, first and foremost I do want to say that these Thursday breaks are going to cease. This week I will not only be having Crit or Miss but I will also be changing my movie reviews from written to a YouTube format as well with the new video show Tanner At the Movies.

With that being said though, this will now be my fourth and going on fifth year running this site. All things considered, I do consider myself a movie critic as anyone else would. I do watch movie and review them based on merit and my own critical opinion. While my opinion may or may not be regarded as highly as other more prominent critics, I do consider myself in the same field as narcissistic as that may seem.

Critics are an interesting lot and we are all different as, naturally, human opinions are different. My reviewing style of movies is going to be similar but different to other critics like Leonard Maltin, Roger Ebert, and certainly vastly different to someone like Rex Reed. I have always said it, to truly gage a critics merit you should not look at the movies they review highly, but the movies they review negatively. If you simply pantomime the positive and negative critiques of the general public, you really are just miming what everyone thinks. While the majority of movies do fall into a certain range, there are some movies that are considered “great” or “timeless” that gets under our skins. For instance, Roger Ebert famously gave a highly negative review to A Clockwork Orange and Caligula. Two movies that will go down as being excellent or at least influential. I am certainly no different. There are tons of movies out there that are lauded as classics or at least great movies that I just cannot stand. This list is going to commemorate those movies.

This is the Top 10 Critically Acclaimed Movies… That I Cannot Stand! Now, I am going to list this list on two scales. The first of which being the way in which the movie is received and how much it truly irritates me. With that being said, let’s start with some dishonorable mentions.

Top Ten Favorite Pokemon

So considering the resurgence of Pokemon in my life, I realized that I never did a list of my favorite Pokemon of all time. So why not start today? These are my all time favorite Pokemon!

Now I will stress a few things. First and foremost, this is my own opinion, obviously, and do not have a direct correlation with the greatest Pokemon. If you want that, go check out that post I made about three years ago. Second, my childhood centers around first and second generation Pokemon. As such, this will be first and second generation heavy. Sorry, thems the breaks. With that said, let’s start with some honorable mentions. Continue reading “Top Ten Favorite Pokemon”

Shaila’s Top 10 Games of All Time

Hello, I’m Shaila Meeker of freeappmaven.com. I typically review apps, but this week I’m continuing one of the many discussions Tanner  and I have had about video games. We have long talks about our favorite games, but I’m not keen to be on camera, so my list is appearing here. I’ve been a gamer for as long as I can remember, starting with the Super Nintendo when I was around 5. After that I progressed to the Playstation and quickly grew to love JRPGS. As much as I enjoy my Playstation, I’m also pretty fond of my PC and it’s growing on me more and more. *gasp* I might even start calling myself a PC gamer. Though, I will never give up my beloved console-only JRPGs; they’re an appropriate exception. I have to agree with Tanner that PC is becoming more of the way to go, especially with the underwhelming releases for the latest console generation. That aside, here are my picks for my favorite games of all time. I don’t consider these the best games to exist, but they all hold a special place for me and several thousand, yes thousand, hours of my life that I’ve spent playing them.

Note: The consoles listed are what I played them on, not which version is the best. I have not played them on each system. Continue reading “Shaila’s Top 10 Games of All Time”

Top 10 Pokemon Everyone Forgets About

Pokemon-logoSo with the HvZ:Athens Invitational this Friday and Saturday, almost all of my time has been devoted to that so I have sadly not been able to watch a movie or play a game to review for the site. So with that in mind, it is time for a Top 10 List and what could be a better topic than Pokemon? Like I said when I made my list of the Top 25 Greatest Pokemon of All Time, the mere concept of Pokemon is perfect for anyone to create a list. You have your greatest Pokemon obviously, but you also have your weirdest Pokemon, most controversial Pokemon, strongest Pokemon, coolest Pokemon, and the list goes on. I was thinking to myself, what list should I make this time? I could do one of these lists, but that would just be doing what everyone else does with a few changes here and there. But then I thought… You know what’s a list I haven’t seen a lot of? A list of the Pokemon that we pushed to the side. Considering that there are over 700 Pokemon out there, it is needless to say that a few of these Pokemon just would not stick out from the crowd. With so many cool Pokemon or at least memorable Pokemon out there, some are bound to fade into a little bit of obscurity. But not anymore! I am going to make a list dedicated to the Pokemon that never got their chance in the spot light. This is the Top Ten Pokemon Everyone Forgets About!
