Coming To A Decision – The Future Of Jyger’s Rant

Okay, so I’m sure that people who have checked in on my stuff are wondering why I haven’t done a lot of videos as of late. In fact, pretty much all my activity has been writing blogs and my Superhero Tales over on deviantArt…

…and yes, I AM an attention whore, thank you for asking. XD So, at this time, I’d like to address the future of Jyger’s Rant – The Series, as well as the future of this blog. Now, as I have been subject to do, I MAY go back on this decision, but right now, my decision is that I will eventually release the rest of my Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie review, and then I’m not going to be doing anymore video reviews.

Now, this is not because I’m depressed and distressed and feeling like I can’t cut it as an on-video internet reviewer. I mean, I DO feel that way sometimes, but that’s not why I’m doing this. Rather, it’s because I realise that I’m FAR more efficient and less clumsy as a writer, not to mention I seem to enjoy it a lot more. This also does NOT mean I won’t be doing reviews anymore. Instead, what I’ve decided is to be a text-only internet reviewer. I just feel that I work better this way. The truth is, I never was fully satisfied with my on-screen work that came off as kind of clumsy at best sometimes, or at others seeming to be Linkara-lite in style. So ultimately, I’ve decided that from here on out, all reviews will be in text format, with the exception of the Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie review since part of it is already on Blip. So all the reviews I had planned to do a while back, I WILL be doing them, just in text format.

So, does this mean I’m never releasing videos ever again? Heck no. I do still plan to eventually film more Tales of Dumbassery, and of course, any time that I go to a con or the like, I’ll be filming that for vlogs. In fact, I actually plan to do some of that in the near future, at the very least during Free Comic Book Day. And also, if any of my friends want me to do a cameo or the like in any of their vids, they know where to find me. So, you will still see me, you’ll see Poliwhirl, and you’ll see N. Harmonik on occasion.

So yeah, I hope that explains how things are gonna work around here now, I’m sorry if this disappoints anybody, but above all else, I don’t want anyone to think that I’m done here. If anything, I’m just getting started. Ja né!

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 01 (Blip Version)

I FINALLY take another look back on what I consider to be Power Rangers‘ lowest point, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie.

Title card is by so-shipsahoy. Intro theme is “Heads Up Hearts Down” by I Fight Dragons, and all video and audio clips and images are from Power Rangers, Star Wars, Big Bang Theory, and Super Mario Bros. the Movie. Also, cameos by GracefulWitch, so-shipsahoy, and of course, N. Harmonik.

Viewcount Totals for October + Plans for the Future

So, final total for the month of October on my blog: 2,262! Now, a lot of people know I feel bad about the mass number of views that came in for the Starslip post and why, but guess what? I checked the total amount of views the Starslip post had in October and subtracted it from the total views for October, and even without it, I still got way more views than I generally do on my blog. Yay! ^_^

I’m pretty sure part of what has brought in these higher numbers are my extended talks on comic books, in particular my short text reviews on the comics I buy every week. So with that said, expect me to keep doing that. I’m sorry if that annoys anyone and prefers to watch for my talks on Pokémon or the like, but don’t fret, I AM doing that too. In fact, my next video review will be on a classic episode of the show.

By the way, if you’re wondering where that episode is, it’s been put lower on the priority list because my YouTube reviews had to be taken down. So what am I doing now? I am reworking and tweaking the multi-part review of the Turbo: A Power Rangers  Movie review. That said, I would also like to release the following list of reviews I plan to release on Blip, in no particular order. And no, I’m not releasing dates since, as most of you have figured out by now, I am TERRIBLE at keeping up scheduling dates.

Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie
Pokémon – Mystery at the Lighthouse
Requested Review: Justice League – Hereafter Part 1 & 2
DigimonOur War Game (Just that one movie, not the three that were combined for the North American Digimon Movie)
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic – The Cutie Mark Chronicles
And of course, more random Pokémon episodes ^_^ lol

Oh yeah, and you’ll notice that one of those is a requested review. I AM open to requests, people. Now, will I review everything requested of me? Not necessarily, but if it’s something animated or tokusatsu, I will at least consider it.

Anyway, that’s all from me for now. Ja né!

 

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 05 + Next Time on Jyger’s Favourite 5

The final chapter of my analysis on this movie, what went wrong, as well as some things I need to say in its VERY small defence, it’s the Turbo Review Part 05!

Intro theme is ‘Roar’ by Treat, as always. Images and clips and whatnot are from Super Sentai, Power Rangers, Metal Gear Solid, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Final Fantasy VII, and Inception.

Special thanks go to Staledogg for doing voice over for this video:http://blip.tv/asianfilmreviews Also, the following footage was created by FierceDeityXeroX and used with his permission: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FIsTorcvG8

Finally, coming up in the next episode of my Favourite 5 series, I take a look at the bad girls you love to hate (or for some people, hate to love).

Music is from Chicago. Images are from Pokémon, Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon, Digimon, Full Metal Alchemist, and Bible Black. And finally, the title card is done by GracefulWitch: http://gracefulwitch.deviantart.com/

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 04

Get ready for the one scene in this movie that angers me more than anything seen thus far, it’s the Turbo Review Part 04!

Intro theme is ‘Roar’ by Treat as always, though I do wish I had my own theme song. Seems my videos can’t be seen on mobiles or in Germany as a result. Images and clips and whatnot are from Super Sentai, Power Rangers, and Atop The Fourth Wall.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 03

Here it is, Part 03, and the début of the Illogical Train. Sorry I’m so late.

Intro theme is ‘Roar’ by Treat, as always. Images and clips and whatnot are from Pokémon, Power Rangers, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Command And Conquer Red Alert 3.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 02 + New Schedule

Well, it’s a touch later than initially planned, but part 02 is finished. Oh, and special thanks to Linkara for allowing me to use a certain joke in this review. You’ll know it when you see it.

Speaking of which, I have decided that from now on, the episodes of Jyger’s Rant will be weekly, every Wednesday. It’s just easier if I keep myself to a schedule, I think. Now there will be stuff in the in-between, but the actual episodes of the primary series will be every Wednesday.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 01 + HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

WHOO-HOO!!! First anniversary, baby! FIRST ANNIVERSARY! And because on anniversaries we’re allowed to do whatever we want, I have begun my Turbo review by talking about the backstory leading up to it which, as you’ll see in later instalments of this review, will in turn lead into some of the biggest plot holes you’ve EVER seen. I know, most people would consider this a prologue or intro, but I’m just different like that.

So yeah, one year…Wow. Doesn’t feel like it. Although maybe that’s because for a long while I kinda forgot about it, which I regret A LOT. I wish that I could go back and fill that time with content, but I can’t. Instead, I can only hope to not make that mistake again.

…Yes, that’s right. I have ultimately made my decision regarding a question I’ve been asking myself for weeks, and the answer is yes, I am sticking around. For how long? Well, I don’t really know yet. I guess for as long as I can do this without it getting TOO awful. lol

That said, I need to give some big thanks to my friends and family who have helped me through all this and encouraged me to keep at it. I have a need to thank JewWario and Linkara for being huge inspirations and for giving me encouragement when I most needed it. I have a need to thank my girlfriend PinkRangerWannabe and my occasional co-star N. Harmonik for sticking with me and giving me their support. Most of all, I have a need to thank each and every one of you that have checked me out over the past year, because it’s all been SO worth everything negative that ever occurred. So thank you all for making this a great year, and let’s hope to make the year to come even greater.

Welcome to Jyger’s Rant.
