Who Said What To Whom Quizzes


Dear all, if you have noticed, I've added Quiz to the film blog in addition to the film blog's new look. The quizzes will be hosted through my Moviepilot account and it is considered as my new side project. Most of all, it is an effort to keep you all movie lovers entertained. ;) ♥

For now for the quizzes, I plan to create for fun ones such as Which Character Are You and Who Said What To Whom. So far though, I have only released WSWTW which is inspired/conceived by my personal quotes collection and compilation, lol. 

Anyway, this post is also a short notice. Will update soon, hectic schedule my apologies. Upcoming stuffs; Penguins of Madagascar (2014) entry is on its way, December month is Pokémon Movie Marathon (20 22 entries) and Pokémon Giveaway (Teaser will be shared soon!)

If you have any movie requests or quizzes requests, feel free to contact me.
Stay tune on my film blog or facebook for more. ♥

Comments on Movie: Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess (2012)
"It definitely doesn't disappoint." - Raymond Herrera, Anime Examiner.

"It's as accomplished and as polished as a movie spin-off from an anime series can be, putting most of the Naruto movies to shame, and up there with the first Bleach movie." - Jitendar Canth, MyReviewer.

"For fans of the Fairy Tail series, this movie will serve as an excellent place keeper until the next series gets rolling. The action is great, the characters are all here, and the ending is heartfelt." - Brandon A. DuHamel, Blu-rayDefinition.com.

"Funimation's dub doesn't fare so well this time. With Mashima directly involved, everything is brighter, funnier, more intensely felt, and yet Funimation's team delivers the same stoically, unenthusiastically professional work that dragged the TV series down." - Carl Kimlinger, AnimeNewsNetwork.

"It has a completely new story arc that has never appeared before in the manga or the anime itself, with new characters and setting or location introduced. It is truly a pleasure unlike some of the other animated features which are usually just a summary version of the anime, which is boring or a major let down." - Rosalyn Lim.

Comments on Movie: The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926)
"A work of wonder equivalent to any rare treasure which Aladdin could rub out of his lamp." - Phil Hall, Film Threat.

"This historically ground-breaking animation gem should be seen by all film lovers." - FilmFanatic.org.

"It impresses for its exquisite craftmanship, balletic movement, expressive romanticism and moments of potent sensuousness and poetry." - Wally Hammond, Time Out.

"More than eighty years later...it still looks like nothing you've ever seen." - Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy.

"Exceedingly detailed and exquisite from start to end. I do not know how else I could express my respect and admiration other than highly recommending this to you." - Rosalyn Lim.

Hello to you who silently read this!

For the past weeks especially, I have been struggling to update in a regular manner because I am critically deprived of time! :'(

In addition to that, there are several matters extremely important to me which I am working on it. If everything goes well, you can expect good news from me! ><

So.. This is to inform that my updates will take a little longer than usual BUT I will not stop posting until my personal mission of exploring every animated features existed is achieved! 

Update soon~ this post is written and posted entirely using Blogger app. @-@

Keep in touch with me on Facebook, alright? ><

Finnish title: Niko 2: Lentäjäveljekset
Other titles: Niko 2: De Flyvende Brødre, The Magic Reindeer,
Little Brother, Big Trouble: A Christmas Adventure


Comments on Movie: Niko 2: Little Brother, Big Trouble (2012)
"There are numerous high flying action set-pieces spread throughout the film's brief running time, showing off the high production values and giving children (and adults) plenty to keep them entertained ... A solid family entertainment which will keep the children occupied over the holiday season without offending the tastes of their parents." - David Brook, Blueprint: Review.

"A very well animated and well written animated movie that not only retains some of the Christmas magic of the first movie The Flight Before Christmas but deals with some pretty big issues but in a way that is easy and gentle enough for the little ones to understand as well." - Patrick Challis, Curiosity of a Social Misfit.

"Just how many family films intended for children out there that are actually adorable and touches on important life issues and taboo topics? Niko 3 please." - Rosalyn Lim.

The Secret of Kells (2009)

Turn the darkness into light

Comments on Movie: The Secret of Kells (2009)
"A charming, gorgeously realized fable about the power of imagination and art to thrive even in the most hostile times." - Todd Brown, Twitch. 

"A beguiling kaleidoscopic indulgence for the eyes and soul." - Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter.

"The Secret of Kells is gorgeous work, and its imagery and themes dovetail perfectly: a story about creating art, artfully created." - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer.

"This understated Irish charmer deserves to reach a wider audience, if only to remind people that animation is a diverse medium that can be exploited in numerous ways to tell all sorts of stories." - Alistair Harkness, Scotsman.

"The world they live in isn't perfect but it is still a vibrant world. It is magical and we certainly can have a glimpse of the lives of the Kells in the eighth century." - Rosalyn Lim.
