Mario Kart 8 Review! http://curiousjoi.com/mario-kart-8-review/

Mario Kart 8 Review!

Mario Kart 8 Review!

If you want to know if I like Mario Kart 8, I think this tweet says it all.

I probably, no wait, I DID play Mario Kart 8 everyday this weekend.  It wasn’t always for a long period of time, but it was a time killer.  A fun time killer at that.  My friend told me “Be at my house at 5.”   It was around 4:45 - granted she lives about 2 minutes away from me – and the first thing that popped in my head was, ooo I can fit in a Grand Prix before I leave.  Sure enough I did and made it to her house at by 5 :)… maybe like 5:05.

Anyways – talking about what I like about the game seems a bit – obvious I mean come on, it’s Mario Kart. Let me tell you what has changed and what is not the best.

The things that have changed and may affect/anger a few people (but then you get used to it – or hate it) is that, one,  you are no longer allowed to hoard items.  If you have three circling around you then you cannot pick up another item box until they are all gone.  At first I was a little disappointed, but then I thought,  “Well, I guess that’s fair.” And two – Battle Sucks. Yes, you heard me – it sucks! Why they decided to change it from the box that you drive around is beyond me.

Battle is now you and your friends racing around the tracks trying to kill each other.  The crappy thing is – most of the time you either lose the balloons by the level itself or you just race around and around and around and hope you find someone.  I don’t know, it’s just really bad.  I miss the whole, “Here is a box.. lets go!” sort of game play.

Other than those two things, the game is solid and A LOT of fun! If you have a Wii U, I suggest you get it.  If you don’t have a Wii U, I suggest you get a Wii U and get it! :)

If you do have Mario Kart 8, what’s your favorite set up? Currently, this one is mine!

Maleficent Beauty Blogger Event + Spoiler Free Review! - http://curiousjoi.com/maleficent-review/Maleficent Beauty Blogger Event + Spoiler Free Review!Maleficent Beauty Blogger Event + Spoiler Free Review!
I’ve said it for many years “If they ever made a Maleficent movie, Angelina Jolie would be perfect”, and well, she was! I got invited to a Beauty Blogger event hosted by MAC Cosmetic, IMAX and, of course, Disney where they showed us demos using the Maleficent Mac Cosmetics line and then a IMAX screening of Maleficent.
Before I hop right into the review, take a look at some of the photos I took last night during the event! (My little iPhone 5 can only do so much   )

Alright, now on to the review 
I was pretty excited to see the movie because I wanted to see Angelina Jolie shine.  I didn’t have many expectations for the movie, so I didn’t know how disappointed I could really be. The movie only runs about one hour and thirty minutes, which is common for most Disney movies (child attention span in all   ). Overall, I enjoyed the movie. I thought it was fun and looked simply BEAUTIFUL! The movie was so so SO pretty to look at – not just Angelina, but the actual movie itself.  With the mix of CG and real actors, it was flawless.  Of course, you can tell at some points when it was all CG, but nothing is perfect :).  Even though I enjoyed the movie and it was s delight to see, it does have its flaws.
The beginning was a little rough, and by rough I mean the pacing seemed off,  which I get.  Since the movie wasn’t very long it’s natural for things to seem very rushed sometimes because of all the storytelling.  After the beginning and the movie starts going, it gets a lot better. One of the best moments was seeing the scene from Sleeping Beauty relived with Angelina Jolie. You know – the scene where Maleficent crashes the party. Yes – awesome! I was a happy camper in my seat while watching.
Here is the ugly: My biggest complaint has to be King Stefan. Ugh! Gosh! Every time he was on screen it’s like “Oh, okay I get it. Move on.” Once you see it, you will know what I’m talking about. He wasn’t really believable in my opinion. That’s probably the only thing  I can say that is enough to pull you out for a minute.
I bet you’re wondering about story. The story for the movie was nice. I’m starting to see what Disney is trying to imply now. I’m not going to say much without giving anything away but – good job Disney   I like that they are starting to do things this way.
In conclusion, do I recommend you catch Maleficent?  I think that it’s worth seeing. If you are interested or already have plans to go see it, I do recommend that you see it in IMAX! The movie is getting so many mix reviews – so I suggest you form your own opinion about the movie and check it out.
As for my opinion…
I give Maleficent a 6.95.  Not quite a 7 but pretty close!
