Oswald Reviews: Inside Out


Okay. Before I go ahead, I highly recommend that if you haven’t seen this film, go watch it before reading this. I won’t be spoiling anything, I just want you to go into this film like I did. I didn’t know much beside the premise and some of the clips released on the Pixar YouTube channel. Go watch it now. Thank you.

Oswald Reviews: Spongebob Squarepants Featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom


This was a game I actually forgot about until I came across it again in my game collection. I looked at it and thought, “Yeah, this seems good.”

This was a game that was the end to a series of games that was about various classic Nicktoons teaming up to fight some sort of evil. Typically they were called Nicktoons Unite, but this one decided to put Spongebob in the spotlight.

How is it? Is it just as awesome as the idea of Nicktoons fighting together, or is this just another throwaway licensed game? Let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: The Super Mario Brothers Super Show


Unlike Bubsy and Battletoads, The Super Mario Brothers Super Show actually was picked up for a full cartoon. I actually remember watching this as a kid. I actually really liked to pick up a copy of the show from Blockbuster. It was something I really enjoyed as a kid. Does it hold up? Well, let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: Battletoads (Television Pilot)


Battletoads is known by many gamers as a fun co-operative beat-em-up. I actually have never played it, as I didn’t get a Nintendo Entertainment System until I was twelve. I only own a couple games on the system, Battletoads not being one of them. Thus, I am not exactly familiar with the classic game.

Just like Bubsy, Battletoads had a cartoon television pilot that never aired. Could this one be as bad as Bubsy, or have I finally found something worth watching? Let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: LarryBoy and the Bad Apple (PS2)


Veggietales was an odd idea for a kids show. Whoever said that mixing talking vegetables with Christian Bible stories was a good idea is certainly on some kind of drug. All jokes aside, Veggietales was an interesting, silly take on parables and Scripture tales that a lot of kids enjoyed. Even if you’re not Christian, the show still teaches valuable lessons on how to deal with bullies and growing up. There was one problem I had with the show (besides the stupid idea): the video games.

These games were always bad. Even as a kid, while I still enjoyed them, I always wanted to give up on them. I didn’t remember why until I brought out the old consoles. The one that caught my eye was the Playstation 2 and my dusty copy of LarryBoy and the Bad Apple. Was this game as silly and fun as the show, or does this bad apple go straight to the garbage can? Let’s see.

Top 8 Disney California Adventure Rides!


You’ve seen my Top 8 Disneyland rides, now here are my Top 8 California Adventure rides!

Let’s face it, Disney California Adventure sucked when it first opened. It really did. It had nothing to do with Disney, and it was filled with uninspired, boring attractions. Sure, there were the occasional diamonds in the rough but overall, it was an utter catastrophe.

But the announcement was made that the entire park was getting a complete overhaul. New rides, new shows, and a new overall feel. This new park paid tribute to the classic America that Walt Disney grew up with. This park would be different than the old one, and it would be miles better.

And it was! California Adventure reopened to an astounding success, and has since become an essential part of visiting Disneyland.

But I digress. Without further ado, here are my Top 8 Disney California Adventure Rides!

Oswald Reviews: The Spongebob Movie 2: Sponge Out of Water


I love Spongebob. I really do. I remember watching it when I was younger, and I still have so many cherished memories from this show. It is possibly the television show I quote the most. (ARE YOU FEELING IT NOW, MR. KRABS?)

I also watched the first Spongebob movie when it came out on DVD, and I loved it. When I first heard of rumors that a sequel was surfacing (no pun intended), I was hyped as heck. What would it be about? Would it continue from the first film? Will it finally explain where the freaking heck The Krusty Krab 2 is? When the first trailer was released, I was even more hyped. It’s exactly like I remember it! I was happy to see Stephen Hillenburg back in the writer’s chair. I had to see this.

I did end up seeing the film soon after it was released. What did I think of it? Well…let’s see.

Oswald Reviews: The Road to El Dorado


One of the lesser known Dreamworks films, this film came out in 2000. It may not be known that well, but it still has a good group of followers.

The Road to El Dorado is a film that I wanted to see for a long time. I’e heard decent reviews about it, and it’s only now that I got a chance to sit down and watch it. Is it as good as some people say or something that should remain forgotten? Let’s see.
