Classic Cross-Over: Les and James Agree on Politics (sort of)

Hi, Manic Expression. Les and I wrote a new article, a sequel if you will, to our original cross-over piece. We agreed it would be a good idea to re-post the original article, as it never appeared on this site. This thing is ANCIENT. You’ll notice I make reference to That Guy With the Glasses being our audience, and Les was still going by NOTYETUSEDNAME. The new article will be up Tuesday. Till then, digest this article from 2011.

JDW:Greetings TGWTG fans. You’re all familiar with NOTYETUSEDNAME, one of the many fine writers here on this site. He and I are here to talk about how respect and love for good writing can bring together two friends who are politically on opposite sides of the world.

NYUN: First off, James, thank you for having me on your show. I’ve always admired your excellent writing and thoughtful articles.

JDW: And I yours, my friend. I know this is stepping outside of your comfort zone a little, as you once swore never to do a political blog, but I don’t think that’s what we’re going to be doing here. You and I have discussed our own political views, and we disagree on a great many things. I myself am a liberal, I voted for the President, and you didn’t. Read more

Jack Skyblue Reviews: The Best Moments of 2017


Just like with last year: This is basically the extended cut of all the positive news that I’ve looked up for this video. This episode of Jack Skyblue Reviews adds 2 Minutes and about 30 Seconds of extra news.

What could be a better way to end the year than with a video about the most positive things that happened in 2017.

I hope you enjoy this video and I wish you all a Happy New Year.

Jack Skyblue Reviews: Justice League (2017) (First Impressions + Spoilers!!!)


I review Zack Snyder’s Justice League and right off the Bat: I loved it! So let us find out as to why I love this film.


In this video I’m talking about Zack Snyder’s Justice League in full spoilery details and with that I hope I can provide you an even better idea as to why I loved this movie so much.

Jack Skyblue Reviews: Why the Justice League (probably) Won’t Be Too Overcrowded!


Originally Uploaded August 29, 2017.

I give you my thoughts on why I believe that the upcoming Justice League movie probably won’t be nearly as overcrowded as people make it out to be and why double standards are on full display here.

Jack Skyblue Reviews: Oreo Cinnamon Bun Flavored Cookies


Originally Uploaded August 12, 2017.

To make up for the overlong schedule of mine I give you a new video just one day later after the other one. Actually the Oreo video was filmed a few months ago however I felt that the Wonder Woman video was long overdue which is why I’ve uploaded the newer video earlier and the older one later.

Anyway this is the first time in which I’m reviewing food. I don’t know if this will actually catch on in this show but I look for enough reasons to get out my videos as fast as I can. Have fun.^^

Jack Skyblue Reviews: Wonder Woman (2017) (First Impressions)


Originally Uploaded August 1, 2017.

Here it is at last! My review to Wonder Woman is finally out and I hope that you enjoy this video.

Manic Expression Loses One of It’s Own

I have just learned that Stephen Leotti, the man animating Manic Expression: The Movie, died in a tragic car accident. His work was exceptional, and I greatly enjoyed the short time we got to work together. He was an amazing animator, a fantastic director, and while I didn’t know him well I did enjoy our conversations and felt we were becoming friends.

Here is an example of what he was working on for the film:

 

 

Our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.

As for production on Manic Expression: The Movie, vocal performances are still being recorded. We will begin the search for a new animator in January.

The Son of Project Halloween

Project Halloween is back for another season. Don’t forget to take your kids out trick or treating and rob them of their candy before putting them to bed and THEN watching this one.

STOP THE HATE: Mayim Bialik

The sad, twisted story of Harvey Weinstein’s downfall has captured the attention of the nation…or at least of the news media who are obsessed with it because it involves celebrities. Your average person probably didn’t even know who Harvey Weinstein was, despite his name being in front of so many of the movies we watch. Unlike Bill Cosby, Harvey was a behind the scenes kind of guy, a fixture of Hollywood that those outside of Hollywood could largely care less about.

STOP THE HATE: Horror Movie Remakes

Lets talk remakes, folks. There sure are enough of them these days, especially in the world of horror movies. Seems like every franchise from when I was a kid is getting a “reboot.” Well, why not?

I know many of you are bothered by this trend, and it does show a lack of creativity on Hollywoods part. But really, remaking horror movies is nothing new. How many versions of Dracula have there been, or Frankenstein? Were the originals the best? In my opinion, sure. Have I enjoyed many of the remakes? Damn right!
