Derpy Hooves... all these places you're going... Are you going Turbo?

And so, Fluffle Puff is still rolling, rolling, rolling. This time, we have... we've got... err... Well, this pony from from a Smack Jeeves guest commenter called "Chicken". So... you call this mare that, I suppose.

Random appearance by Berry Punch. ...Who apparently didn't get caught in the Fluffle Puff Ball... somehow...

Also, love the Wreck-It Ralph reference in the description.

...Y'know, I sometimes wish you would update this more than once a week. I'm rather anxious to be reunited with Lugzburg, Derpy, and Pinkie Pie, but we currently seem to have been sidetracked by Katamari Fluffle Puff.

Well, to be honest, It most certainly will be in the 3 dollar theater by then. I can spray myself down with bug spray and enjoy it with the little woodland critters...

Mostly insects and spiders, but they need good entertainment as well. Surely it would be less expensive and more practical to rent it from one of the dvd booths, but atmosphere is important for a decent horror film.

Oh, wait, I thought you were talking about the Frankenweenie remake.

Nevermind.

Random comment time:

Has anyone seen any Super Sentai (Japanese series that Power Rangers gets most of its footage from)? I'm currently alternating between Chojin Sentai Jetman (the last series to not get adapted into Power Rangers, though Saban had tried to get the footage of that one for the first season) and Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger (35th anniversary series, where the pirate-themed sentai change into their 34 predecessor teams). They're awesome.

Let's go! Let's Gokaiger!

I've seen the Japanese version of spiderman on youtube... with subtitles. I don't know how accurate the translations are, but I found it to be by far the best version of Spiderman short of Spiderman noir.

So, No I have never seen the original version of 'Power Rangers,' but that doesn't matter because making an abridged version of anything from Japanese stock footage is usually the funniest thing ever... Why I can't quite remember power rangers ZEO is still a mystery.

If I had seen the original version of power rangers I suspect it would something like this...

The nostalgia critic would agree with you if he wasn't threatened with legal action.

Canal+ is the Canadian studio responsible for things like 'Mona the Vampire' and other dollar store and NBC favorites like GRIMM... I think they recently made the Borgia's (knock off) tv series. I do enjoy good horror and camp humor.

The Secret Of Kells Looks like it might have an interesting variation on a classic fantasy plot. So, I really can't judge it myself sight unseen. However, I think they did a better job than 'The Room' based on production value alone.

Then again I ran across the powerpuff girls in the dollar store, and the art style looks relatively close to something Disney animators came up with some years back, so it could be anyone's guess.

Secret of Kells Review

reply

Wow, stellar performances. The story kept my fascination and the art was something unique up on. Of course, since it taught a lesson, the enemy was ambiguous, and the ending seemed rushed, I should say "POOH! And never bring up 'The Secret of Kells' ever again.

Alternatively, I could just spoil the story while pandering misinformation and simply state, The Secret Of Kells is a coming of age story about a boy who hooked up with a wolf princess in order to obtain the power of the devil's eye...

The protagonist then becomes an engineer of mens souls. Because, clearly, being a structural engineer is not nearly as likely to provide hope against the Anglo-Saxon-Viking hoards.

In the end Brendan reconnects with his illegitimate father, because he was clearly a bastard to begin with, and the fantasy ends or continues to presumably build up to nothing nearly as spectacular as the book of Kells. A book so spectacular the viking Anglo-Saxons would probably wipe their butts with it if toilet paper had been invented.

The film promotes materialism at its finest. While I suspect the Vikings would have held on to the book of Kells for its socio-economic significance to King Arthur, they could just as easily have destroyed it for iconoclasmic purposes.

The story within the film itself relies entirely on meritocracy, I guess, although the enemy was never defeated, the village was sacked, and the refugees were all probably killed, the important thing was that Brendan survived and he was able to become a man.

When I say hook up, I mean in the collaborative sense. Your definition involves physical intimacy whereas mine involves co-creation without the physical aspect.

You have to admit the story is one of those stream of consciousness epics that just spandrels around the subject matter and really has no point where it evolves into anything more than "look what I can do!"

The fact that I can enjoy it at all reminds me that I'm not a zombie, so perhaps it was an exercise for the imagination. It makes a good story and conversation piece to compare with Princess Mononoke as a dueling partner.

@Jarkes: Much, much, MUCH harder. It's also a bit more like a Zelda game mixed with Super Mario 64, this time around. The first game was like Super Mario 64, but tremendously-superior.

@.:AuraX:.: The grammar in that answer does not match that of the question. Neither game's contain bad endings in which Banjo & Kazooie fail. Well, unless you count the famous Game Over sequence from the first game.

It's been all the craze-rage in the brony fandom! There are Twilight Sparkle plushies being manufactured with wings. That's not all. As I mentioned earlier, there's this render of a Twilight alicorn on a big cardboard poster shown at a brony convention at some kind. Also, there's the mention in the 8-minute clip about Celestia taking Twilight's studies to the next level, and Luna looks jealous or upset with Twilight for some reason. There's a shot depicting Celestia and Luna where their cutie marks take up the background, followed by the camera shifting to Twilight, who also has her cutie mark taking up the background there. There's also the fact that her brother just married a princess, which pretty much makes Twilight Sparkle indirect royalty.

Oh, and Midna is adorably-expressive. See for yourself.
