Admirable Acting: Micaela Dee In Support Group

Admirable Acting: Micaela Dee In Support Group

A very good up and coming actress that is my cousin, Micaela Dee did an excellent job on her cameo in the third episode of Support Group. She might have inspired her performance off of Reese Witherspoon as Vanessa Lutz from Freeway (1996) and Kristen Stewart as Allison from Welcome to the Rileys (2010).

Micaela Dee showed off her acting chops as very realistic, very accurate and very authentic. Her biggest inspiration of all time is Reese Witherspoon and that made her convinced to do acting the way Southern belles such as Dee and Witherspoon do.

Micaela Dee is an actress worth seeing for the next decades of film and television.

Admirable Acting: Reese Witherspoon In Everything She Does

Admirable Acting: Reese Witherspoon In Everything She Does

Let’s be fair, y’all, Southern belle Reese Witherspoon (March 22nd 1976-Present) is one of the few actresses to be great in every role she had portrayed. She has been nominated five Golden Globes and two Oscars. She has three children (a daughter, two sons) and her attitude is a great reminder why Southern hospitality is dang good.

In Freeway (1996), she played this delinquent who is very angsty, abusive and profane with a heavy drawl, like her natural accent.

In Election (1999), she played a high school girl who is very dominant and rude while bragging about her school.

In both Little Nicky (2000) and the Legally Blonde films, she played a blonde sorority girl who is very kind to others.

In Sweet Home Alabama (2002), she played a fashion designer who wanted to go back to the Deep South.

In Walk the Line (2005), she played June Carter Cash, one of her greatest influences which made her win an Academy Award.

In Monsters vs. Aliens (2009), she voiced a sensitive woman who grew into fifty feet tall with white hair.

In Wild (2014), she portrayed Cheryl Strayed to a great effect.

In Sing (2016), she voiced a sow who has tons of piglets to take care of.

This woman has it all, y’all! She done did her roles in a way that would might could be important for the culture of the Southern states.

Since the mid 2010s, Little Miss Type A had began both a film production company called Pacific Standard, which is dedicated to empowering feminism including the hit films Gone Girl (2014), Hot Pursuit (2015) and the HBO series Big Little Lies. She also began a retail store throughout the Southern cities including her hometown, Nashville, Tennessee.

The Overlooked And Unique Editing Of Ang Lee’s Hulk

The Overlooked And Unique Editing Of Ang Lee’s Hulk

Ang Lee’s Hulk (2003) was very complex and cerebral. The editing style for certain scenes of the film were based on comic book panels, which Ang Lee and Tim Squires read to help set up the visual style.

For example, where Bruce Banner (Eric Bana) received a call from David Banner (Nick Nolte), the earlier was in the left panel and the latter was in the right panel, with audio tracks intact.

Very few films use such an innovative editing style, which made me think that without that editing style, films might be a bit too formulaic.

Dialogue between David Banner and Bruce Banner at Atheon

Dialogue between David Banner and Bruce Banner at Atheon

Just before David Banner bit into the electric cable and became a sentient being of electricity, all he wanted was to talk to his estranged son, Bruce Banner for one last time. However, General Ross might electrocute the two of them if things get out of hand.

Bruce: “Maybe once, you were my father. But you’re not now and you never will be.”

David: “Oh. Is that so? Well, I’ve got news for you. I didn’t come here to see you. I came here to see my son. My real son. The one inside of you. You’re nothing but a superficial shell. A husk of flimsy consciousness ready to be torn off at a moments notice.”

David was referring about the “disease” that lived inside Bruce since he was born.

Bruce: “You can think what you like. I don’t care, just go!”

This made David think about his new abilities and how he should drain his son’s life. David tested on himself yet again, which gave him the idea into curing himself.

David: “Now, son. Listen to me. I found a cure… for me. My cells can transform, too. Absorb enormous amounts of energy. But unlike you, they’re unstable. Son, I need your strength. I gave you life, now you MUST give it back to me! Only a million times more radiant, more powerful!”

Bruce was frightened by his father’s goals.

Bruce: “Stop!”

David felt that his son is not understanding what he was trying to say.

David: “‘Stop’ what!? ‘STOP’ WHAT!?! Think about all those men out there, in their uniforms! Barking and swallowing orders! Inflicting their petty rule over the entire globe! Think of all the harm they’ve done! To you, to me! To humanity! And know this, that we can make them, and their flags and their anthems and their governments DISAPPEAR! In a flash. You… and me.”

David explained to his son that both of them were tracked by the San Francisco military all because about the earlier’s beliefs that humanity can go beyond God’s boundaries and that they arrested him for the accidental death of his wife for thirty years. Because of this, Bruce was followed by the military.

Bruce: “I’d rather die!”

Bruce refused his father’s offer, angrily.

David: “Oh, that’s your answer. And indeed you shall die. And be reborn… a hero! Of the kind that walked the Earth long before the pale religions of civilization infected humanity’s soul!”

David believed that people who rejected his ideas are not smart enough due to their beliefs on religion and use of the military over research.

Bruce: “DON’T!”

David briefly stopped and mocked Bruce.

David: “Stop your bawling, you weak little speck of human trash.”

It seemed that David had wanted to kill his son ever since he was conceived because David wanted to improve on the limits of himself. David couldn’t handle his son not listening anymore, which gave him the opportunity to get out of his chair, bite into the electric cable and absorb all of the energy.

David: “I’ll go! You just watch me go!”

Voices For The Rest Of Hector Con Carne’s Organs?

Voices For The Rest Of Hector Con Carne’s Organs?

Since Hector Con Carne’s brain is voiced by Hector Con Carne’s voice that is Phil LaMarr, Hector’s feminine stomach was voiced by Armin Shimerman.

This gave me the idea on who should voice the rest of Hector’s organs for a proper ending story arc. Since Evil Con Carne was made for a Y7 rating, I will not include male only organs.

Heart: Jess Harnell

Lungs: Rob Paulsen

Liver: Tom Kenny

Spleen: Billy West

Kidney: Maurice LaMarche

Muscles: John DiMaggio because he voiced tons of hammy and gruff characters.

This is my idea on who should voice the rest of Hector’s body.

 

 

Silent Shows: Evil Con Carne

Silent Shows: Evil Con Carne

Evil Con Carne (2000, 2001-2002, 2003-2004) is the most underrated cartoon of all time. It had been quickly forgotten because of how it is related to The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, which is not as unique compared to Evil Con Carne.

It focused on the brain of a Mexican playboy named Hector Con Carne (Phil LaMarr) who has to find the rest of his body while still attached to the bear Boskov (Frank Welker). His assistants are his lover Major Dr. Ghastly (Grey DeLisle) and General Skarr (Armin Shimerman). Hector’s stomach (Armin Shimerman) also talks.

The series had 32 segments and had high-quality animation and storylines. They also had some hidden references.

Another reason why Evil Con Carne is so underrated is because of Frank Welker’s multiple voice roles including the animal vocal effects. He even voiced a spoof of both Godzilla and Mothra in one scene. Hilariously enough, Frank Welker did the vocal effects of Godzilla in 1998.

Evil Con Carne may have inspired Megamind (2010), Despicable Me (2010) or Suicide Squad (2016) but it is very rare to find.

Button Mashers: Crash N. Sane Trilogy

Button Mashers: Crash N. Sane Trilogy

Crash N. Sane Trilogy (2017) helped bring the first three Crash Bandicoot games into the PlayStation 4 and for a new generation of children.

All of the three games were rebuilt from the ground up and it looked like a very great remake of all three games. They also had a unified save system, time trials in the first two games and the ability to play Coco Bandicoot.

N. Sane Trilogy is completely worth your time and money.
