Movie Review: Anna

Details: More information can be found at https://anna.movie/ and https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7456310/

Score: 7/10

Anna is the latest movie from Luc Besson, whose most famous movies include Leon, The Fifth Element, Lucy and Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets just to name a few. To me, Besson is most notable for taking beautiful women who aren’t that great at acting and making them the protagonist in action movies. I also know him as the director who oversexualized an underage Natalie Portman. Anna continues this tradition by taking an actual international model with debatable acting skills and making her the start of the show. Her performance in the action scenes was pretty good.

Anime Review: Fire Force

Details: Watched three episodes. More information can be found at https://fireforce-anime.jp/ and https://myanimelist.net/anime/38671/Enen_no_Shouboutai

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Judgment of Atlantis

Score: 6/10

For the most part, this DLC is lackluster. However, I cannot deny that it’s pretty to look at. The art department knocked it out of the park with Judgment of Atlantis. It’s the writers and scenario makers that sucked ass with this one.

Manhwa Review: Tower of God

Details: You can read it here: https://www.webtoons.com/en/fantasy/tower-of-god/list?title_no=95&page=1

Score: 5.9/10

Tower of God is a Korean comic that’s translated on webtoons.com. It’s one of their most popular comics. I read through around two hundred issues before giving up on it. Currently, the best drawn Korean web comic I’ve found is Solo Leveling. The art here isn’t amazing and the story is mediocre in that I’ve seen a similar story told countless times before.
