Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Non-Spoiler Review

tumblr_o9788jr9tp1s6aiaao1_1280

Hey everybody! As promised, here is my review for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. After several conversations post-movie, on the drive home, at home, etc., I feel like I’ve had time to bring my thoughts together to into a review for all of you. I’m going to be keeping this absolutely spoiler-free as well, so read on without fear! I mean, if you want to go into this film completely blind, then maybe skip this for now (I understand, I try not to watch reviews for movies I want to see in theaters, especially if I’m going to review them). For those of you carrying on, let’s get right to it.

No Trailers of the Week, but…

Hey everyone! As the title suggests, there's no trailer discussion this week. I only had three come down the pipeline anyway and that wasn't really enough to make Vol. 3. I am, however, out of town right now and will be seeing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in about two hours. So instead expect a review for that either tonight or tomorrow, depending on when we get home. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Ending 12 Days Of Anime!

Hey Machiners, I am writing to let you all know that I have decided to end the 12 day of anime series. There are a couple reasons I decided on this. First I have some real bad weather rolling in for the weekend here and already I am in a great deal of pain because of it. The Bulging disc in my back combined with my normal weather related back issues is causing me no ends of trouble and I am having trouble thinking creatively in my current condition and my foot that I had surgery on hurts a bit tonight also!

Additionally I can see that the interest in these posts are just not there. No real interaction with Any of my Anime Talk posts in the last couple months, which is discouraging and makes me think that the small community of anime fans we used to have here have moved on to other things.  I may still post a few anime related articles over the next several days, but I will not be continuing the 12 day commitment.

Open Nomination: HMHOF!

Well Jr's Hero Of The Year Post today reminded me that it is also time for our annual HeroMachine Hall Of Fame nominations! So here is what I want you to do. In the comments below I would like you to nominate a pieces of Heromachine, and HEROMACHINE ONLY artwork from any creator anywhere on the internet so long as 1) The individual has not been banned from this site, 2) The Heromachine artist knows about the nomination and does not object to his/her artwork being used here. & 3) as noted above the artwork is created 100% inside heromachine with no editing other then basic cropping.

I would prefer you nominate other peoples artwork but you are not forbidden from nominating yourself if you are so inclined. Also there are no limitation on the number of nomination you can make but I do ask you try and keep them to a minimum so I don't need to create a 100 entry poll!

A Bit of Fun: 9 Great Cover Songs

I wanted to do something different, so today I wanna talk about cover songs. Cover songs come in all shapes and flavors, often crossing, blurring, and outright stepping over lines of genre and style. Like any other type of song, they also run the gamut from excellent to atrocious. We’re going to do the former this time around, and save the latter for another time. I’ve actually been really lucky to hear so many good covers, but I want to talk here about the best of the best, the ones that really stand out. To make this list, they had to be at least on par or better than the originals. I’m also limiting to one per band, as some artists do enough covers that they could make a list to themselves. So without further ado, let’s get to it!
