World's Greatest Dad is about Lance Clayton a teacher for a high school, his son Kyle is a total asshole to everyone and has one friend named Andrew. Lance's son Kyle doesn't respect him and is mean to him, one of the things he does on his free time is look at porn. He sometime chokes himself while looking at porn. Lance has a relationship with another teacher in the school building and she doesn't want the relationship to be public or anything. Well, one night while Lance was coming back from a date, his son accidentally killed himself while choking himself while looking at porn. And Lance writes his suicide note.
World's Greatest Dad is a good film, the jokes are placed in well. I have a complaint though about the film, I think that there could of been more jokes around the death satire. But it doesn't make it any worse than what it really is. The acting is pretty good, and the kid from Spy Kids plays as Kyle! How awesome is that? One thing I can note is that the character development is done well, you get to know the characters in a great manner, it explains how the characters react and feel at the same time. So if you like dark comedy's, be sure to check this film out.
Good film in all, could use some improvements. 3.5/5
Wow, (500) Days Of Summer. Okay, lemme start out by saying that it's "Boy meets girl, girl breaks guy's heart". But it's what happens in-between is just simply amazing. The story is about a guy named Tom Hansen who falls in love with a lady named Summer Finn, they have a relationship and it's about 500 days of the guy's life and what he goes through. The actors in this film are just simply amazing. You can feel the character's emotions through out the whole film. One other note from this film is the comedy, which is neatly done in a smart cute manner. The relationship between Summer and Tom is amazingly done and it actually seems like they were filming a real couple.
One thing I can relate to it is the relationship, I had a girlfriend of 6 months not to long ago, and it was very hard for me to get over her. I couldn't get over her because I though I was in love with her still and I wanted her back. I feel like I can relate to Tom onto this subject. But that's besides the whole point. What happens though in-between the 500 days is just simply magic. I have never seen a movie with this much thought put into the script, it was done so well, it's like the writers were in a relationship like that! (Oh wait, one of the writers based the movie on 2 relationships he had). Another thing to add that this was the first movie that made me want to cry, I have seen sad movies but this tops the cake. I have never ever in my life wanted to cry at a movie, but I shed 2 tears because of the emotion put through the characters.
Best film of 2009. 5/5

I was happily surprised by the strawberry variant of Fanta. I found that it had a very unique flavor, with the perfect amount of carbonation to favor it. Although, it can wear on you, making the experience less enjoyable as you drink it.
I have never tasted a soda with the kind of impact that Strawberry Fanta makes, with its unique strawberry taste. Well, I wouldn't call it strawberry exactly, becuase as you may know, artifical strawberry flavor tastes nothing like the fruit it was derived from. I have no problem with this in Fanta's situation however, as it wouldn't be Fanta if it was too real tasting. It is really hard to describe the flavor, as it is so original. After maybe ten minutes of this though, it starts to become redundant, and you don't feel like drinking it anymore. I personally felt a bit sick after 20 oz. of this stuff, which is definitley a bad sign. It could be because I'm not used to the flavor, but I doubt it.
Strawberry Fanta is really fizzy, which goes really well with its flavor. The carbonation seems to increase the intensity of the flavor to some degree. The fizzing sensation in your mouth is almost tickling, if you hold your sip for maybe two seconds. Again, I think that after a bit, it starts to get old though. It is fun while it lasts though.
The bottle that Fanta usually comes in has a normal sized bottom half, with the neck sporting the usual fanta design. Nothing too special here. I do like the art for the Fanta logo, and the strawberries next to it are obligatory. What I want to talk about here is the marketing. I thinkn that Fanta has one of the smartest marketing schemes ever devised. You take a few hot women, give them a catchy name that corresponds to the beverage, make them dance and sing, and BAM you have a profit. Very sly, marketing executives. Very sly.
I was content with Strawberry Fanta, but not impressed. The flavor does wear on you after a while, and the artifical-ness of it all is something that I dislike. Strawberry is not a flavor that is used in soft drinks all too often, so I give them Kudos for trying something different. Unfortunatley, it fell short.

I deeply apologize to the less than 20 regular viewers for the extreme lateness of this review.
Neuro Bliss is an interesting concept, you drink it, and it's supposed to make you happier, more focused, and feel good overall. I have to stress that this is not intended for small children, as if they drank it, they would most definitley go off the handle. Twice.
Neuro Bliss's flavor reminded me of squirt, with an almost chalky aftertaste. It's certainly an aquired taste, and since it makes you happy, the end justifies the means. Of course, Neuro is a supplement drink, so don't expect a wonderful flavor sensation, just expect it to taste alright, while reaching its goal.
Neuro's texture is fairly simple. it's lightly carbonated, but enough so that it's not watery at all. It's the perfect amount for this type of beverage. When you take a sip, you focus more on the flavor, and the texture is more of an afterthought. It won't bother you!
I love creative bottles, and I was super-excited when I saw the bottle that Neuro comes in. It looks like an old rocket, or maybe a lava-lamp. That sort of shape. The cap is the whole upper fourth of the bottle, which adds some awesome effect. The bottle is only 12 oz. I believe, but this is good, becuase Neuro is meant to be taken in small sessions, with a sip or two each time.
Neuro is fun to drink, because it makes you happy! It works for me, but I'm pretty sure that results vary from user to user. As you can probably tell from my 'Fentiman's' Review, I am somewhat of a lightweight, so it could just be me. Try it and see for yourself!
I also apologize for the briefness of this review. I have the attention span of a hummingbird today.

Fentimans Curiosity Cola has a very distinctive cola flavor. It interests you from beginning to end. As you drink it, you want more, just to see if it will taste as it did a moment ago. What the case usually is, is that it surprises you the entire time. Fentimans contains less than 0.5% alcohol, a product of the fermentation that takes place during brewing. This product is brewed in a very unique way. On the bottle it says “botanically brewed.” This basically means that Fentimans used herbs, yeast, and other natural ingredients to ferment it.
Fentimans hits you with a very unique flavor as soon as you take a swig. The fermentation process makes for such a natural, distinctive, incredible flavor. Many people may not be used to it but as you drink more, you realize that this is so much better than regular, over-processed cola. It has a slight bitter aftertaste due to the minuscule alcohol content, which could have grown annoying, if it was not for the moderately small amount of soda that you get. 9.3 ounces to be exact. This is definitely a good thing, or I think that I'd be getting buzzed from a soda drink.
Fentimans has no real unique texture, which comes as a surprise to me, considering the extravagant way it is brewed. To be honest, it is heavily overshadowed by the flavor, and I don't have much of a problem with this, as the flavor is very good. I was hoping for a little more umph, but that was compensated for by the flavor, which I might add, is very mood enhancing.
The glass bottle that Fentimans comes in is simple. As you may know by now, I like simple. It resembles a wild-west bottle of beer, which makes me feel like I'm drinking the past. Like I'm drinking a primitive, yet amazing version of cola, as it first came to be. The bottle has 'BOTANICALLY' and 'BREWED' engraved near the curve. Nice touch.
I had a good time with Fentimans Curiosity Cola, and I must admit that I was VERY curious as to what it would be like. I am happy to say that it is a wonderful experience overall, and right now after drinking it, I feel a lot more relaxed. Again, this probably leads back to the alcohol content, even though it contains such a small amount. (0.5%, Lol, I'm such a lightweight) The taste is unique, the bottle is full of wildness, and I really want to try Fentimans other flavors. These include Ginger Beer, and Victorian Lemonade.

For this review, I tried the Kiwi flavor.
I really adore Calypso. Ever since I was a small child I LOVED lemonade. Now, Calypso offers a unique tasting adventure that will have you trying all of the flavors. I admire the way Calypso uses real cane sugar as opposed to the usual high-fructose corn syrup. I also, as always, enjoy the glass bottle.
Calypso is very good at blending their traditional lemonade flavor with the various fruit flavors that they have to offer. When you take a sip, you first taste the lemonade, and then over time, the kiwi flavor becomes more dominant. The bottle claims that Calypso has 'Taste of the Islands' and I must agree, as this is some of the best lemonade I have ever had. It is a bit on the tart side, but I am partial to sourness. Calypso uses real lemons, as opposed to flavor, which is probably the best thing about the taste. This makes Calypso have such a natural feel, something that is uncommon these days.
Within the premises of a bottle of Calypso is a happy place I like to call Pulp Land. Calypso has very delicious lemon pulp in it, which is probably the most notable thing about its texture. Otherwise, It's what you would expect from REAL lemonade. Other non-lemonades made from powder ruin the texture, and you can sometimes feel the powder in the drink, and I am happy that this is not the case with Calypso.
Calypso comes in a glass bottle, with a clear sticker stuck flush onto it. It's appealing to the eye. I really like the art style for the font, and the simple impressionist art of the fruit. It implies a fun, yet sophisticated drink, and makes you want to try it! I was disappointed that Calypso is on the bottom row of the drink fridge at 7-11. More people need to see it. I also like the iguana that is on the cap, wearing a straw hat, and sunglasses. He is holding a bottle of Calypso of course, only with his tail! [It's trademarked.]
I was pleased with Calypso. I love the flavor-engineering, the pulp, and the awesome art. Calypso is completely independent from any major beverage corporation, and they do what they do very well. The only real complaint that I have with Calypso is that they use artificial color for flavor effect, as the color always matches the flavor. This is fun, but not completely natural. This is a minor gripe, but it's still annoying to me because they did everything else right. They have glass bottles, no high-fructose corn syrup, and they use real lemons. Very impressed overall.

Troll 2 is the mother of all bad films. So if you don't like movies that are "So bad they're good!" then I don't really reccomend this film to you.
The film starts out with this average American family (Mother, Father, Sister, Little brother). They are going to switch houses and vaction at Nilbog, so they go to stay there. The beginning takes place in which his Grandpa is reading Joshua a bed time story, then he was "hilucinating" and he thought he saw his dead Grandpa. Then his sister's boyfriend appears and comes through her window, and asks her if they want to go on a trip. She tells him and his friends that are all of a sudden at her window that she is going to Nilbog with her family. So they go to Nilbog, on there way there, Joshua has a dream about him being a goblin. They finally arrive, and they get to the house they are vacationing, and they are treated to some freaky ass people, then they leave so they decide to check out the house. When they check out the house, they see a bunch of food on the table. But then "OH NO" because ghost Grandpa appears and says "It's bad food Joshua, don't let them eat it!" So the kid stands up on the table (Because ghost Grandpa stopped time so he could make them not eat it.) and takes a piss on all over the food.
I am not going to give you the full plot, but it sucks ass. Horrible acting, horrible script, and HORRID effects (The goblins look like something you made in kindergarten.). But this movie, is really hilarious, if you want to have a good time with some friends, get Troll 2, and laugh your guy's ass off!
Final verdict. So bad it's good, 4/5
I am, once again, allowing you to pick what I shall review. This time, the losers of the last poll are going up against the newcomer, Fanta. The second most popular answer was Snapple last time, so we'll see how this goes. You have until September 23rd to vote. I already know what I'm going to review this week and next.
Also, I would like to add that if you click on our ads (which can be found on the bottom-middle-right of the site) we can make money which will be used for buying new drinks to review, and for the cost of the domain name.
Thank you for your support. Help us get noticed!
What can I say about 'Dragon Ball Z'? 'Dragon Ball Z' has a special place in my heart with childhood memories from 'Toonami', when I heard about 'Dragon Ball Kai' about last year, I was happy. I was wondering when they were going to dub the series into english, which they did. It's really cool that they actually did that. Another great thing about 'Dragon Ball Kai' coming to America, is that they put it on televison! OH THE NOSTALGIA! 'Dragon Ball Kai' is 'Dragon Ball Z' in which they cut all the filler crap and it follows straight with the manga.
Here is a review on 'Dragon Ball Kai' Part 1 on 'Blu-Ray'.
One thing that you'll notice when you put it in your Blu-Ray player is that the aspcet ratio is 4:3 instead of 16:9, this making it letter box instead of wide screen. There is a total of 13 episodes on 2 Blu-Ray discs. 'Dragon Ball Kai' is simply amazing, new animation inserts, new theme song and credits, simply a must buy for and 'Dragon Ball Z' fan! The voice acting is really good, they have replaced some of the original voice actors from Z, but the new ones fit right in perfectly. The way they edit the episodes is neatly done, they just go straight to the fighting and not that extra bull crap that they throw in. Instead of waiting 30 episodes to fight Vegeta, 13 episodes (dammit). Well, this is the basic low down on how it is.
4.9 for the 4:3 ratio.

For this review, I tried the "black and blue berry" flavor of SoBe Lifewater.
SoBe Lifewater is a unique take on the "energy water" concept. Lifewater excels in taking some key points from other "energy water" beverages and applying creative twists (literally) to them. This can make for some similar drinking experiences, but at the same time, a completely new one. Something that really interests me about Lifewater is the ability to feel a lot like actual water, while still being an enjoyable fruity beverage to drink. More on that later. This was my FIRST ever experience with Lifewater.
The first thing I want to say about Lifewater's taste is wow. A lot of drinks have used the double fruit flavor tactic, which of course, opens up a world of opportunities for improvement. I have to say that while Lifewater does a fine job of improving, it does not amaze me. What DOES amaze me however, is how much they managed to make Lifewater taste like an actual blueberry. It's incredible when you take a sip, and immediately you recognize the flavor from fresh produce. Most natural blueberry flavor does not taste like the blueberries you would buy at the supermarket. The blueberry flavor is so accurate, that the aftertaste is intact, which could be taken as either a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on personal preference. I was disappointed to find that I could not taste the blackberry so much, but I doubt it would have made the taste any better.
When you drink Lifewater you get the impression that it is actually water. Not only does it have the same basic flow when it runs down your mouth, but it has a watery complexion. I really enjoy drinking something that texture-wise is the equivalent of water, with a flavor to compete against foes such as Vitamin Water, Propel, and the like. (Reviews on these in the future?) In this case, watery is a good thing. The only complaint that I had with the texture, is that when you drink such a watery, delicious beverage, the flavor tends to muck up the back of your throat, and it creates some phlem. This could have something to do with the flavor I got. This is a minor gripe however, but it can get annoying. All in all, I'm fairly impressed.
When I first saw the bottle for Lifewater I was intrigued. It has such a pronounced overall feel, and recognizable traits to help with marketing. As you can see in the photo, the bottom of the bottle is very unique, sporting a spiral design. I really love the way that the geckos wrap around the corkscrew, and I am VERY impressed with the fonts and colors on the bottle. As you look down the bottle, the color turns from pure white, to a gradient matching the flavor of your drink, to total transparency. The plastic is extremely sturdy, and feels like you can abuse it all you want and not break it. Comparable to plexi-glass. I could not break this bottle if I tried. Overall I'm VERY impressed with the bottle.
I was happy with SoBe Lifewater, and very impressed with the natural blueberry flavor, as well as the ultra-creative bottle design. As something to drink that has zero calories, NO ASPARTAME, tastes fairly good, feels like water, and can deliver a satisfying experience, SoBe Lifewater succeeds.
