Legendary Post

By Isaiah Silkwood

You lean back against the wall, your favorite scotch in your wrinkled hand. It has been changed over the years, as everything in your favorite tavern has. The floor doesn’t squeak as loudly as it used to. The twisted wall panels are covered with fancy wallpaper. Even the patrons have changed. No longer is this the loud tavern that you used to sweep of broken glass at night. Now this place is filled with the low murmur of the rich. It is for vendors to sate their thirst or to drown their sorrows in the truth of their not so opulent realities. So is life. It all has a way of changing. You take another sip–you used to take swallows–of the cool scotch. Carbonated. That’s the word the barkeep had used. He’d said he was just trying it out to see if the patrons liked it. You…

Hunger Games vs. Twilight: What’s More Awseome

What’s More Awseome: Hunger Games vs. Twilight

You Decide!

Why? There are two movie/book phenomena have swept the nation in the last few years. These are the Twilight Saga and the Hunger Games Trilogy. I have one reason for bringing these two fandoms together… We’re going to find out which is more Awesome!

Hunger Games’ Strengths: The story involves teenagers killing each other for our entertainment. We as readers are treated to being just like the Capitol. We love the violence and seeing the forced romance unfold between Katniss and Peeta(Makes one pause to think, we as readers hate the capitol so much but we’re just like them). Tasty foods are described in the book. That’s always a plus. Medieval weapons such as swords, bows and arrows, clubs, knives, spears, and tridents also add to the Awesomeness of this series.

Twilight Strengths: It’s about vampires and werewolves. That’s an immediate plus. It’s the second best romance I’ve ever watched. (Let’s keep in mind I haven’t watched very many romances. It beat out My Big Fat Greek Wedding but lost miserably to Letters to Juliet) And…. Sadly, I am unable to think of anything else good to say about the Twilight series. Continue reading

Star Wars vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/TMNT: What’s More Awesome!

What’s More Awesome? Star Wars vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Or if you prefer the short version, TMNT: You Decide!

What do I think? Wow. I have to lean toward, Both. I know that’s dumb but I can’t pick. I like them too much.

My Reasoning: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has had some awesome movies. The movie in 2007 was a little dry in my opinion but none the less a very cool franchise. Star Wars has had very awesome films as well. Epic each one. But TMNT has a lot of nostalgia for me to go along with it. Each franchise is so much more than the movies though. It is the TV series for the turtles that I love and the books for Star Wars.

Alright, lets see if we can narrow this down a bit. Continue reading

Star Wars vs Marvel: What’s More Awesome?

What’s More Awesome? Star Wars VS Marvel. You Decide!

Until then here’s My Outlook: Star Wars takes the cake.

My Reasoning: I grew up with Star Wars far before I liked super heroes.

If you could be any of the characters in either universe what would you choose? I like the idea of being a Jedi over a super hero. Why? Let’s take a count of Jedi Force powers. Jedi can sense danger before it arrives (Marvel Equivalent: SpidySense). Jedi can move objects telekinetically (ME: Jean Grey AKA the Phoenix, and Magneto). Jedi can sense the future (ME: I’m at a loss. I think Psylocke can. Not sure). Jedi can heal themselves of certain wounds that any normal human would need medical attention for through a healing trance (ME: Wolverine. Admittedly his is much cooler). Jedi can leap great distances and run very quickly by enhancing their muscle strength through the Force (ME: This applies to a lot of superheroes. I mean what super hero isn’t stronger than a normal man). Jedi can influence the weak minded and also read others minds given the right conditions (ME: Charles Xavier).

Essentially a Jedi is a multitude of superheroes rolled into one. Would a Jedi be able to defeat any of the Marvel Characters? Let’s leave that up to you.

Finally: Who doesn’t like lightsabers?

What are your thoughts? Which Universe is your favorite? And which universe has a better future under the helm of Disney? You Decide!

Star Wars Episodes IV, V, VI vs Star Wars Episodes I, II, III: What’s More Awesome?

What’s More awesome? Star Wars Episodes IV A New Hope, V The Empire Strikes Back, VI Return of the Jedi or Star Wars Episodes I The Phantom Menace, II The Attack of the Clones, III Revenge of the Sith? You Decide!

Until then I’ll give My Opinion: All Six movies are totally AWESOME!!

My Reasoning: I watched Episode I: The Phantom Menace first. So in my eye this was the start of the movies. I was too young to quite comprehend how someone could make the last three before the first three. Then I was blessed with the experience of being able to watch the last three films. They were very well done and showed honor and courage among comrades who fought for freedom. Continue reading
