    Transformers was nice... Megatron gives out a hitler-ish vibe. Man even in cybertron, you cant get away from zombies! :ROFLMAO:

    Speaking of that ending, it was kind of underwhelming. Season 1 Finale was a blast and made us wait what would happen next in Season 2. This season’s finale is a twist on the singularity effect of time travel (that you can’t travel backwards only forwards) and the effect it causes on the timeline as we know it. It’ll be 2021 when we find out about it in Season 3. I’m thinking by then Number Five would’ve been a year older and his voice deeper so how they are going to retain his character’s age will be a challenge. This isn’t like Stranger Things where the kids grow up older.

    Season 1 had a lot of seemingly filler episodes, but had a great ending.

    Season 2 had a lot of great episodes, but had a rushed ending.

    Overall, I would have to rate S2 higher, as each character had their story arcs told well, and episodes were never boring (unlike some eps in S1).

    SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't seen it READ NO FURTHER.




    I think that finale insinuates that they went to a different dimension, a different timeline.

    They should've revealed Ben in the full episode of S3 na lang, because it negated the emotional goodbye they just had.

    We watched Weathering With You last night. Such a perfect movie to watch while the weather is rainy. It got us craving for a good bowl of ramen after watching it.

    Our thoughts on the movie is that it's not Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name.) Part 2, and it shouldn't even be so don't expect it to be the sequel that took 4 years in the making. But it's hard not to compare Weathering With You with Your Name because of the similar formula of a love story with a mix of supernatural stuff, and also for the characters of Your Name appearing in cameo roles in Weathering With You suggests that they have the same cinematic universe. Visuals are top notch once again, and the OST is fitting for the rainy weather setting.

    The theory is that when Vanya unleashed her powers in 1963 and changed the life of Harlan and other people then the course of history followed them back to 2019. It was as if they existed in another timeline or reality. The Sparrow Academy already had its seed planted in 1963 with Harlan and Lila possibly being a part of it.
