Mitchell’s Hyrule Puro-Resu News! (6/30/20)

The Dark Forces have a message!

Hyrule News

The Hyrule Pro-Wrestling Trios Champions have a message!

At the most recent HPW press conference, King Nicolas Foolyere Hyrule named the Eventide Challenge qualifiers, but also officially named contenders to the HPW Exquisite Championship and Trios Championships. Today, Cia and the Dark Forces posted a video in response to the news.

Cia again sits on a throne with Volga, Wizzro, Gibdo and ReDead lurking nearby. “Iron Knuckle, and The Dark Nuts. Or as you want to be called now, Forged. In. Violence. Nice name. Did it take you all year to come up with it?” Cia doesn’t mean to offend them, but even they have to be smart enough to realize they have no idea what they’re doing. They had to intimidate “a frail old man” to get this title shot. Iron Knuckle and the Dark Nuts have not done anything to deserve this shot at the HPW Trios Championships! Cia is 100% confident that her generals will “defend the honor of King Nicolas,” as well as successfully retain their titles. Volga tells Forged In Violence that he will “cook you alive inside those tin cans.” All Gibdo and ReDead add are creepy grumbles and heavy breathing.

“While we’re here,” Cia would like to address her opponent at Treasure Island, the HPW Goddess Champion, Midna. Midna thinks she’s hilarious hiding in some dark room somewhere, playing around on the computer, sending weird messages while barely going outside. “You got lucky in the tournament, you little imp!” They were on different sides of the bracket, and Midna had it easy compared to Cia. But now that they’ll finally have a match, Midna will see she’s “not a goddess, or even a Twilight Princess, whatever that is. You’re just a little weirdo!” On Eventide Island, Cia will shine as she finally has her treasure.

 

Naturally, Midna responds.

“Excuses, excuses.” Cia sure thinks she’s something, doesn’t she? If anyone’s lucky, it’s Cia. She won against Zelda while Zelda was pulling double duty, then won against her again after Zelda was powerbomb’d through a table. And if Cia wants to talk about playing around, Cia’s the one playing pretend that she’s the once and future Goddess of Hyrule. Cia needs to see things how they are, not how she wants them to be. Midna said it weeks ago, but maybe she has to say it again so it sinks in. “You aren’t going to win relying on cronies. You’re going to be all alone on Treasure Island. Open your eyes and see the twilight.” The Twilight Emblem ends the message. Will it finally get through to the Dark Sorceress?


My Thoughts:

Anyone getting Zelina Vega vibes from Cia? Because that’s kinda who I’m going for with her promos. Somewhere between Zelina and Alexa Bliss, the two shortest, sassiest superstars who do great as Heels, both as wrestlers and managers. Meanwhile, I’m just trying to keep Midna as Midna, her own kind of sassy. Maybe Midna should be the Alexa Bliss in this, who can be sassy even as a Face. And for those who know more about Midna from the Legend of Zelda games, I’m sure you’re wondering which form we’re getting at Treasure Island. You’ll just have to wait and see, because even I’m not sure which I want to use.

BWN Nerds’ Movie Review: Teen Titans Go! To the Movies! (2018)

The Nerds start sliding back in the timeline again as we see them tackle Teen Titans Go! To the Movies! Have we hit a weird timeline where Patrick isn’t the German judge? Whaaat?!

Published

on

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Nerd Review!  Every week the Nerds give you their take on a different classic from the Nerdosphere.  This week Dave and Patrick review DC animated film Teen Titans Go! To the Movies!

The Flick:  Teen Titans Go! To the Movies!

What’s it About:  Robin of the Teen Titans desperately wants to star in his very own super hero movie, but no director will cast him.  That is, until one director offers him the chance to achieve his dream.  But at what cost?

Metacritic Score: 69

The Nerds’ Take on Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018):

Dave Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is so much fun. That is my overriding opinion of this week’s installment of the Nerds’ Review. It takes a popular corner of the DC Universe and delivers an animated special that is equal parts a comedy and a musical, with just enough of a positive message to make it somewhat of a learning experience, all while never losing the slap stick nature of what makes the Teen Titans Go! franchise so beloved.

Essentially, the movie is mostly about Robin and his quest for achieving a level of stature, in his own mind anyway. Robin no longer wants to be known only as a sidekick and feels the only way to accomplish this is if a movie is made about him and his Teen Titan teammates. Most of the other, more established super-heroes, such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, etc., all feel the Teen Titans are nothing more than goofsters, not to be taken seriously and certainly not worthy of having a whole movie made about them. Determined to prove them wrong, Robin sets out on a quest to convince super-hero movie director, Jade Wilson, to make a movie about them. Along the way, he tries a plethora of ideas to accomplish this goal. He first seeks out an arch-nemesis, who ends up being Slade, aka Deathstroke, who is never actually called Deathstroke in the movie but is hilariously referred to as Deadpool. The Titans travel back in time to rewrite super-hero origin stories, but this does not work out so well. After setting things right, a huge showdown with Slade convinces Jade to make the Teen Titans movie after all. But the Titans soon reveal their immaturity and Jade dumps them, but still wants to make the Robin movie. Robin turns his back on his friends all so he can see his movie made, which is the only way he feels he will amount to anything other than a joke. Naturally, Jade is not who she says she is and this creates the conflict that brings us to the concluding moments of the movie.

There is so much about this movie that, as I said earlier, is just fun. True, the humor is quite adolescent at times. Then again, it is supposed to be when one considers the primary audience. After all, fart jokes and pooping in a prop toilet on a movie set are pretty funny for the demographic the movie was designed to reach. But there is more clever humor to be found as well and some of the best parts of the movie are when DC pokes fun at itself, including a great scene between Batman and Superman asking each other what the other’s mother’s name is and Green Lantern lamenting the disaster that was the Ryan Reynolds led movie. Particularly fantastic are the cameos by none other than Marvel head honcho, Stan Lee (prior to his passing), who knowingly makes a cameo in a DC movie because, hey, he loved cameos. There is also a mention by the Titans of raiding the set of Spider-Man for more food. It is all great stuff as most of us in the know know that the “competition” between DC and Marvel, for decades, has been quite friendly, to say the least.

The voice casting is superb, with the highlights being Will Arnet as Slade, Kristen Bell as Jade Wilson, Nicolas Cage as Superman, and all of the regulars from the Teen Titans Go! Series. Lost amidst all the fun is also a lesson that is being taught about the power of friendship, about team work, and that it is more important how you see yourself than how others around you might perceive you. The musical numbers are good and will put a smile on your face. There are subtle nods here and there to the actual Teen Titans comic, especially the involvement of Deathstroke, who has a, shall we say, complicated relationship with the Teen Titans. In fact, only the most jaded of persons will watch this movie and not come out thoroughly entertained. If you are looking for a very light, and immensely fun, super-hero-based movie, then give Teen Titans Go! To The Movies a try.

Dave’s Rating: 3.75/5

Patrick:  Michael Bolton voices a singing white tiger, Stan Lee makes a cameo in a DC movie, and the Teen Titans murder a young Aquaman(temporarily).  This is but a taste of the antics you will get when you check out Teen Titans Go! To the Movies.  A film spinoff of the popular Cartoon Network show, Teen Titans Go! To the Movie is a delightful parody superhero films that both children and adults will enjoy.

The movie begin with the Teen Titans (Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Raven) attempting to gain access to the premiere of the next big budget Batman movie.  During the coming attractions Robin hopes to learn the next major superhero will be about him.  Unfortunately, Robin learns that everyone from Alfred from Batman’s utility belt will be in a movie, but he will not.  The other Titans endeavor to help Robin achieve his dream by going with him to Hollywood.  There Robin meets director Jade Wilson who tell Robin he needs more to be a lead in a superhero movie, like a nemesis.  Enter Slade, a supervillain the Titans thwart earlier in the movie as he tries to steal a crystal.  Robin and the gang realize a nemesis like Slade could be just what Robin needs to get the superhero movie lead he has always dreamed of.

The plot of Teen Titan Go! To The Movies is fun enough, but the writing takes the film to a whole ne level.  Aaron Horvath parodies everything under the sun.  Eighties movies? Parodied.  Super Hero Movies?  Parodied. Stan Lee cameos?  Parodied.  And it is all very smartly done.  There is a particularly memorable montage poking fun at tragic origin stories where the Titans travel in time to prevent heroes from ever becoming heroes. The hole montage left me gasping for air.  I don’t want to spoil too much, but Superman’s baby booty is involved.  There’s even a Back to the Future parody within the Superhero origin parody.  It really is cleverly done.  Then there is the veritable who’s who of DC cameos.  From the Atom to Swamp Thing all the way to the little known Challengers of the Unknown, the entire DC Universe seems to make an appearance.

The voice cast is anchored by the Teen Titans Go! Cast from the series.  Scott Menville carries the load voicing Robin.  Will Arnett and Kristen Bell provide the other primary voice work as Slade and Jade Wilson.  Both are terrific, but Arnett really steals the show.  The cameos are not limited to the animated appearances, however.  Patton Oswald, Nicholas Cage, Stan Lee, and, as I mentioned in my open, Michael Bolton all lend their voice talents to various characters.

Teen Titan Go! To the Movies really is a fun time.  Adults can enjoy the smart writing laced with some nifty doses of nostalgia.  Kids will love the antics of their favorite small screen heroes on the big screen.  You won’t walk away from this one disappointed

Patrick’s Rating: 4.63/5.0

 

Overall Nerds’ Rating for Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018): 4.19/5.0
