Katie Plays Stuff: Kingdom Hearts Unchained X

khux

First things first: I am a huge fan of Square Enix and Disney’s Kingdom Hearts series. I will admit that I was a bit skeptical of it at first: the idea of a story combing Disney and Final Fantasy characters seemed odd to me, but then I actually played it and loved it.  So of course I downloaded Kingdom Hearts Unchained X (apparently this is actually supposed to be the Greek letter chi) pretty much as soon as I heard of it. And, as usual, I have some thoughts about it.

The Trailer Park: Keanu

 

I’m not gonna lie: I really, really like cats. I like cats more than I like most people. So it looks like this movie was made for me.

Keanu, directed by Peter Atencio and starring Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, is about a guy named Rell (Peele) who is depressed because his girlfriend dumped him. That is, until he opens a door and finds an adorable tabby kitten that he calls Keanu. But when gang members break into his home and capture the feline, Rell and his friend Clarence (Key) spring into action to rescue him.

First things first: that kitten is fucking adorable. I would probably go to the ends of the earth to rescue that kitten (then again, I would probably do the same for any cat). I also love the premise and how completely and utterly ridiculous it is. Two dorks trying to infiltrate a gang to recue their pet cat. How can anyone not love this?

Needles to say, I am most likely going to be watching this when it comes to theaters on April 29.

The Trailer Park: Rogue One-A Star Wars Story

The trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released on Thursday and it looks fucking amazing.

Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards, is a prequel of sorts to A New Hope. Taking place shortly before the first Star Wars, it follows a wanted criminal named Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) who is recruited by the Rebellion for a very important mission: stealing the plans for the Death Star. The film also stars Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelson, and Alan Tudyk, and will be opening on December 16.

Admittedly while I’m more into Star Trek than Star Wars, I do still enjoy the latter. I really liked the original trilogy, thought the prequel trilogy was kind of meh, and absolutely adored The Force Awakens. So, I’m actually pretty pumped for this movie.

Plus there’s the fact that certain fanboys are getting their undies in a bunch because the film features a female protagonist. That right there pretty much guarantees that I’m going to see the movie.

So, yes. Really looking forward to this one.
