Rome's Rant: Sailor Moon Live Action - A Review

So... I'm not gonna make excuses for myself about this post. Haha, let's just move right along with what it's about ok?Sailor Moon Live Action. Have you seen it? I'm currently watching it and I must say, it is the corniest thing I have EVER watched. What gives? But... for some reason I am glued to my computer screen watching this awkward show! Luna is a stuffed slightly glowing cat... ehh... the Youma (the bad creatures) are highly reminiscent of Power Rangers (In fact the whole show is highly reminiscent of power rangers!). The girls wear wigs too. The wigs are actually a great idea. I ALWAYS wonder how people can never recognize Usagi (Serena) and the others. I mean, in the anime, NO ONE else in the school has blue hair or blond pigtails. It's kind of a tell. So the wigs in the live-action are a brilliant idea. Then again, how funny would it be for the Ami (Amy...) actress to have dyed her hair blue.

I digress though, the show is actually a guilty pleasure. It might be out dated but honestly, a good story is a good story. Check out Boys Over Flowers-- It's been remade three times (four?) and the story still works! What IS it about these stories though? ... I suppose that question can be answered in another post.

Review:
It's a good watch. 50 episodes. About 25 minutes of show. The transformations are so killer; freaking amazing!! The hand motions they these girls do are awesome, I geek out over them each time. It's a bit sad. Confession: I tried to learn Sailor Moon's Transformation hands. I dare you to watch a couple of episodes. Tell me you didn't try to mimic the hand movements. The girls still have the whole friendship thing down, but it has another level to it. Unlike the anime, conflict between girls don't end in one episode, they continue to the next. They may not be the same conflict, but... what mean to say is they each earn each other's friendship. In the anime, it seemed that the fact that they were protectors was enough to bond them. The Live-Action has a bit more conflict in that area. The girls are pretty (for the most part) and it's interesting to see the greatest fan fiction romance take place amongst the 'real' Usagi and Mamoru. All in all, I think it's a good waste of time. ^_^

Edit: From out SayNOW... 
This one is really awkward...

Just finished it, it's great!
I do think the Princess thing was going a bit overboard though... thought she was a bitch! Self-centered, immature and selfish: "Oh I'm sad because my love died so Imma kill the world now and you're to weak to stop me so ha", so ya, that's my only failing it in... but other than that it was FREAKING AWESOME, ur right, a good waste of time :D!

Thanks a lot for the descriptive review of the show. I have heard a lot about this adaptation but was not sure to go for it. It always has been a treat to watch sailor moon episodes and I am sure that the live action version will be as good as the show.

It is! It's a new-ish take but it was fun nonetheless you know?

Erectile Dysfunction FAQ's

Impotence, or penile erectile dysfunction, in men is not as rare as one would think it is.
In fact, one out of ten men around the world is affected by this condition. It is not exclusive to old men either. Impotence is caused not just by physical factors,
but mental factors as well.
Exercising on a regular basis and eating healthy food will increase your ability to sustain prolonged physical effort and we all know that sex is effort.
Smoking, frequently drinking large quantities of alcohol, taking recreational drugs and lack of exercising will sap your stamina and also slow down the flow of blood.
Penis exercises can be used for maintaining fitness, preventing or controlling premature ejaculation and increasing the length and girth of the penis.
by penis enlargement pills you can overcome these problems and not only that you can also enlarge, extend also to strengthen your penis and premature ejaculation will not exist anymore for you.
