A Fairly Odd CritiqueHey there, every-peoples. AMX-269 here, with another written commentary for all of you to enjoy. This time, I want to talk about the current state of a cartoon that a lot of people seem to think has fallen almost as badly as SpongeBob: The Fairly Oddparents.
My main inspiration for writing this came when I saw Mr. Enter’s latest Animated Atrocities notebook page: the Season 9 FOP premiere, “Fairly OddPet.” And I’m pretty sure he’s going to do a video on the episode. I can’t say I blame him. Because I’ll be honest, as far as episodes go, this was bad. Like, really bad. I think there’s a lot of people out there that will tell you that FOP started going the way of SpongeBob back when baby Poof was introduced; heck, there are some who believe it started to happen even before that. But now with the introduction of Sparky, the negative opinions seem to have increased tenfold. And I will be honest: yeah, the ninth season of FOP has been d
AMX-269's Top 7 Worst Ed Edd n Eddy EpisodesHey there, every-peoples. AMX-269 here. I know I've been doing a lot of written works lately, but this idea suddenly popped into my head, and I knew I had to get it down on paper. Now, the last few lists I've done have been mostly about negative subjects: my least favorite video games, obligatory love interests, etc. So this time, I decided to shake things up a little bit, and make a list about something I love, that shouldn't have any flaws...and yet, no fandom is devoid of duds.
If you know me, you'll know that one of my favorite cartoons of all time is "Ed Edd n Eddy." There's just something about this show that strikes me the right way; it's also one of the few shows that was able to make me laugh out loud as a kid. Plus, the three main characters themselves are fascinating, and it was always fun writing them when I was a fanfiction writer. In the beginning, there wasn't really anything wrong with this show, at least to me. In fact, there isn't any episode in the first season that
Game Review: Among the SleepAmong The Sleep Analysis
Hey there, every-peoples. AMX-269 here, with another one of my video game review/analyses. Over the last few days, a game I've been looking forward to was finally released, and today, I finished it. I first became interested in "Among the Sleep," the first big game created by Norway's Krillbite Studios, by watching Let's Players Pewdiepie, Cryaotic, and CinnamonToastKen play through the demo. From there, that led me to the game's Kickstarter page, and that led to me donating a bit of money for the cause.
The fact that a horror game was able to capture my interest is actually surprising to me, since I normally tend to steer away from that kind of thing. But after playing through the game, I think I've realized something: in terms of psychological horror, that really doesn't seem to bother me much. Ironically, I find jumpscares more frightening, probably because I'm so sensitive to noise. But enough about that. My point is, jumpscares aside, "Amo
AMX-269's Top 5 Obligatory Love InterestsAMX-269's Top 5 Obligatory Love Interests
Hey there, every-peoples. AMX-269 here, with another top five list. Today's topic is one that I've always seem to pick up on. One complaint that I often have with certain forms of media is the obligatory love interest. What exactly is an obligatory love interest, you ask? Well, basically, the obligatory love interest is a character whose main point of even being there is to be the romantic interest of the main character. More often than not, this character is female, though I'm sure male versions exist. As an avid gamer, I see this problem mostly in video games, but there are plenty of examples in other forms of media, as one entry in my list will show. So, without further ado, I give you "AMX-269's Top 5 Obligatory Love Interests." Why top five? ...Because that's pretty much all I've got.
Oh, and one more thing: I realize that not everyone's opinion is going to match mine, and I will be respectful of others' opinions as long a
