Watching Movies & Video Games Become Cartoons!
Ok, so one of the things that I have noticed, and I don’t know if you have noticed… But there is a growing trend of video games and movies that are becoming cartoons on TV… And you know what? If you are like me, then I think you are gonna find some of them to be pretty good, and some of them to be pretty bad!
A great example of one of these series is, ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’.
Now at this point most of you marvel fans out there probably will not remember this series… It has been off the air for the past 5 years… But in a lot of ways, this version of the series could almost be said to be be better than the next version of the series, ‘Avengers: Assemble’…
Both of these series were quite good… The differences between the two in my opinion is the fact that Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes had in my opinion better stories and better uniforms for the heroes, as well as better music. While Avengers: Assemble was better inked!
Now that is just one of the great series that basically came from the success of the movies that came first.
Now a really bad Marvel series that well is really bad because it was pretty poorly put together, (if you are like me and a classicist and prefer the story and characters from the movies and the comics… That is new Spider-Man series.
Now the series is not horrible… But the problem is, is that the story was not well thought out… The characters are off a little bit (MJ doesn’t seem to be there at all, and Harry Osborn is a genius…)
The series though before it was pretty amazing, with great artistry, and great stories that fit pretty freaking awesomely! As a matter of fact, that Spider-Man series is one of those that I definitely had to wonder why they decided to close down the really good series, for the less than spectacular series…
Now there are some video games that I have seen that are like that as well… Believe it or not, for the most part, most series that are based on video games, I have found are pretty good!
A couple of great examples… Believe it or not are the latest, ‘Mega-Man’ series and the latest, ‘Pac-Man’ series!
Now as for Mega-Man… Well I will be honest with you guys and say that I have not actually seen the whole series… I have seen the first few episodes… And as far as cartoons goes… It is pretty awesome! The only thing that I am not sure about it is why there is no, ‘Dr. Wiley’… But I am looking forward to checking out more epsides and finding out!
As for Pac-Man… I have seen the whole series recently on Netflix… Now I will say that Pac-Man is one of those series that is pretty awesome… Despite being mostly meant for kids!
It does have some really dull stories, but Pac-Man also has some pretty fun stories as well… And where as you may not think that the people who invented this series would be able to create a world around a pretty two dimentional video game… But they did… And I think they did a pretty good job with it!
In the end, there are many other great cartoons based on live action movies and video games, and if you are like me, then you are going to try and find as many as possible to really enjoy them!
For more information on these… Here are trailers/scenes from what I mentioned above!
