Ummm spoilers if you actually care

You know sometimes directors will make movies based on real life historical events?

and sometimes those movies will have some small changes compared to the real event just so that it translates better to a movie?

well in 2000 an Italian film director called Camillo Teti decided to tackle the horrific sinking of the Titanic by making it an animated children’s movie starring talking animals and a rapping dog.

The plot is fairly similar to the James Cameron movie that came out a few years prior to this, a girl who is supposed to marry some total douche goes on board the Titanic and meets a poor man who she falls in love with,the boat hits an ice berg and she eventually loses her new love to the icy waters after the Titanic sinks, the only difference here is that no one dies and there a sub plot regarding a detective finding a jewel thief.

The animation is terrible, first of all the entire film uses these horribly dull colors meaning that nothing is really able to stand out, another problem is the frame rate is just awful, a lot of the time it looks like someone is flicking through a flip book and sometimes the animators don’t bother to animate things at all this is especially more noticeable in the background scenery, clouds wont move and sometimes background characters will remain still, this lack of flowing animation makes the movie feel less realistic than it already is.

Titanic-11

This is a musical and honestly the songs are not that bad, they don’t need to be in the film and do nothing to help the plot but they aren’t really annoying in any way and one song in particular is actually pretty catchy and yes I am talking about the rapping dog.

The voice acting is really bad, just like Anastasia it just feels like no one wanted to be in this movie, every character sounds so bored and uninterested and I cant think of a single character in the entire movie that I enjoyed listening too, some times the English dub of the film comes across as really broken, some sentences get cut short due to editing issues, some of the characters are hard to understand and some of the dialogue is just genuinely bad.

People really hate this film and its not just because its bad, the biggest problem with this movie is that the director tried to make a light hearted children’s musical out a of major disaster which only happened just over 100 years ago.

To no ones surprise this is a bad film but I think everyone should watch this at least once because just like food fight its hilariously terrible especially if your drunk.

Rugrats Studio Tour (PS1) Review

Back in my youth I had a slight obsession with the Rugrats I used to own all of the videos and I had posters all over my room, I also remember owning quite a few Rugrats video games which as a kid they were amazing but when I come back to most of them as an Adult I seem to find issues which I never noticed before, on the bright side a few of them still remain to be pretty fun and one of those fun games is Rugrats Studio Tour for the Playstation 1.

Story

Tommy, Dil, Chuckie, Phil, lil, Angelica and Susie are all going on a movie studio tour but while they are there the Rugrats get up to their usual antics and they wander off by themselves, In the process of them leaving the grown-ups they lose Dil and he gets locked behind a door and the security guard loses the keys it doesn’t help that Dil took them off of him before he got locked in. The Rugrats want to get Dil back so they go around the movie studio to find keys that will fit in the door so that they can save Baby Dil.

Game play

So the babies venture off on their adventure through the movie studio to save Dil luckily while you a controlling the characters the controls are not too bad their not perfect though I do personally find them be a little bit loose but let that put you off playing this game. While playing through the game you will have to play as each of the characters which each have their owned themed world.

Phil and Lil- Diapers of thunder

Diapers of thunder is a race car themed world all of the levels consist of kart races this is one of my favorite worlds because its sort of like a crappy version of Mario Kart  instead of mushrooms, turtle shells and banana peels get ready to use baby bottles, eat cookies and throw diapers.

Angelica- Captain Cookies

Pirate Themed world

Treasure hunt scenes- Collect a specific amount of Reptar bars or you may have to open a big chest, don’t forget to avoid the evil Crab and the evil Clown Dolls

Treasure collecting scenes- Play as Angelica, Tommy, Chuckie and Tommy in these areas and collect as much treasure as you can before the timer runs out

Pirate Golf Scene-To win you must pot under par or on par you can also win keys by collecting a certain number of Reptar bars you play as all of the Rugrats in this area

Footrace scene- This the same as the Phil and Lil levels only difference is Angelica is on foot to get the key come first place.

Tag scene- Simply a game of tag, tag all of the babies to win a key

Susie- Lazy Saddles

Western Themed World

Gold Mine Scenes- To win keys the player must collect Reptar bars or collect all of the gold in the Level, There is a time limit in each area you can play as Tommy, Susie and Chucky

Round up Scenes- The player must round up all of the animals within a time limit to win keys in this area you can play as Susie, Angelica, Chuckie and Spike (Tommy’s Pet dog)

Western Golf Scenes- Same as the Pirate version just western themed either score par or below/ collect a certain number of Reptar bars to win keys

Milk Squirting Scenes- Get ready aim and fire milk at moving targets to win keys, I find the game hard to control when doing this as the controls feel all stiff for some reason.

Chuckie- outside Space (Pretty creative name right there)

A space themed world

Loonie Lander Scenes- What the hell is a loonie lander? That’s what my first thoughts were when I heard the name of this scene out turns out it some sort of alien hover craft damn I was hoping for something more awesome. Drive around and collect all of the aliens to win keys in this area you play as Chuckie, Tommy, Lil and Angelica

Zero Gees Scenes- Aliens have taken over your spacecraft. Escape to win a Key or by collecting Reptar Bars. Play as Chuckie, Phil and Susie

Lazy Beam Scenes Beam Scenes to win a key you must shoot lasers at targets this is similar to the milk squirting games

Tommy- Once you collect enough keys you can enter the final place where you will have to finish 2 games before you can find Dil.

Shirley Lock Holmes- There are two parts to this level in Part 1 you must play as angelica and find 4 keys which you can use to open the big door and in Part 2 you must climb a huge bookcase to find Dil too bad he enters another scene

Okey Dokey Jones- Play as Tommy and Follow the paths to find Dil

Reptar Scene- Reptar is a big green Dinosaur and for some reason he is pretty pissed at the Babies because he wants to eat them I guess its revenge for eating all the Reptar bars. Drive the Reptar Wagon and escape his evil clutches

 

Graphics

For a Ps1 game I have got to admit I am impressed, the graphics could have been improved when comparing to games such as Metal Gear but come on its Rugrats there is not exactly such a hype for Rugrats games and trust me compared to a lot of other Rugrats games the graphics are at least nice enough to not make you want to throw up so yeah well done game.

Music

Now the music I’m not so impressed with, ok I will admit the music is not terrible I just find it to be a little bit basic compared to other PS1 games, I understand that there may not have been a big budget for the making of this game and I guess since there was no computer software back then to electronically make the music it’s not too bad it just could be better in my opinion.

Final Verdict

I never thought I would say this about a Rugrats game but this one is worth buying, the controls may feel a little stiff and loose in some parts and the music isn’t brilliant but the overall game play is fun and that’s one of the most important factors to a video game so if you have a PS1 I recommend giving this game ago especially if you have kids. I am going to rate Rugrats Studio Tour a 7/10 because it may not be perfect but it sure is pretty damn good

I hope you enjoyed this review of Rugrats Studio Tour this is my opinion of the game if you respect my opinion I will respect yours.
