The Bugs Bunny/ Road Runner Movie was a 1979 compilation movie of popular Looney Tunes shorts directed by Chuck Jones, it is the second Looney Tunes feature film after the film Bugs Bunny Super star that is a little controversial because one of Bugs Bunny’s creators didn’t credit the other artists that helped him create the character, a clever scene in this film credits all of the creators and refers to them as Bugs Bunny’s many fathers.

The film is introduced to us by Bugs Bunny who is giving us a tour of his mansion, while he is doing this he is discussing framed pictures of characters he has met in his past and explains his previous interactions with these characters through animated shorts.

Most of these Looney Tunes films are compilations of old animated shorts so I will discuss a handful that I think are the best in the compilation. my top 5 for the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie are

5. Long Haired Hare

The premise of Long Haired Hare is about Bugs Bunny trying to play various instruments and enjoy his music, in a house near by an enthusiastic opera singer is practising for an upcoming show but Bugs music keeps distracting him and the bully of a singer keeps destroying Bugs instruments forcing Bugs to take revenge by conducting his show and the results are absolutely hysterical, the only downside is that in the movie this cartoon is shortened so your not watching full original version.

4. Robin Hood Daffy

Daffy Duck stars as Robin Hood and in this version of the story Daffy is a really clumsy and cocky Robin Hood who keeps failing in everything he does, he gets laughed at by fryer tuck played here by Porky Pig who does not believe that he is Robin Hood and Daffy needs to prove his identity. This is one of my favourite Daffy Duck shorts of all time, it is hilarious and full of slapstick comedy and I love it so much, there one scene in particular which involves trees that will make anyone laugh, the reason I have put this so low on my top 5 is because again in this movie its shortened which sucks because it really is a fantastic cartoon.

3. Duck Amuck

Any fan of Looney Tunes knows that Duck Amuck is one of the most well known and preserved cartoons of all time, what makes this one stand out among others is how it breaks the fourth wall in a very clever and hilarious manner.

In the short Daffy Duck is cruelly tormented and messed with by a sadistic animator, he gets his colours changed, voice changed and is forced to constantly change his outfits and physical appearance all for the amusement of this animator, if you want good laughs and really crazy animations and pacing you will adore this short.

4. Whats Opera Doc

My favourite Looney Tunes short of all time is Whats Opera Doc, this short is a musical comedy starring Elma Fudd and Bugs Bunny, it is loosely based on real operas and uses a blend of orchestral music and comedy extremely well and this is why I love it so much, its a really dramatic but also ridiculous action packed comedy which will have you in stitches and maybe even a few shed tears by the end.

5. The whole Wil. E. Coyote and Road Runner section

This section appears right at the end of the movie and is a bunch of Wil. E. Coyote and Road Runner shorts stitched together to make one long short film.

The idea of these is that a greedy, stupid and unlucky Coyote keeps trying eat the fast running Road Runner Bird. what makes these so hilarious is all the ways that the Coyote gets hurt but what I think is the funniest thing is just how stupid he is, he keeps buying these really flawed traps from the same company ACME and never learns to either stop buying these traps or just eat another animal.

The Bugs Bunny/ Road Runner movie is a great compilation of Looney Tunes shorts, there is a nice variety of cartoons here and even though not all of the classic characters made appearances it is still very entertaining and how I would recommend someone to watch some of the funniest Looney Tunes shorts of all time.

I hope you enjoyed this review of The Bugs Bunny / Road Runner Movie

Luigi’s Mansion 3 (2019) Review

Luigis-Mansion-3

Luigi is back for his latest ghost hunt and this time he is ditching spooky mansions for a haunted hotel.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the third instalment of the Luigi’s Mansion video game series, It was developed by Next Level Games and was published by Nintendo. The game was released for the Nintendo Switch on October 31st 2019.

Luigi, Mario, Princess Peach and her Toads have all been invited to a high quality hotel called the High Rise Hotel of the Last Resort. Not long after checking into the hotel and settling down Luigi is woken up by Princess Peaches scream. The hotel has been transformed into a haunted ghost trap and Luigi soon discovers that all of his travelling companions have been turned into paintings by King Boo who is working closely with the Hotel Owner. After a swift escape from the ghoulish king Luigi has to travel to the top of the hotel to capture the spirits and rescue his brother and friends.

The game is split into 17 areas, each area is a new floor of the hotel and each floor has a unique theme, environment and boss encounter, each floor of the hotel offers a different type of challenge which helps to spice up the game play, I wont go over all of the floors but my three favourites were the garden floor, the movie studio floor and dance floor.

Boss ghosts with a lot of personality have been brought back for this game, the boss fights are all very challenging and a lot of fun, they reminded me of the portrait ghosts in the first game although they are no where near as creepy.

Gooigi who was introduced in the Luigi’s Mansion 3DS remake has returned here as a major part of the game, players control both Luigi and Gooigi to solve puzzles and progress through the game, Luigi gets a new Plunger item in this game to pull and throw heavy items.

Also due to Gooigi’s flexibility he can walk through gates and drop through drains allowing him to access areas that regular Luigi can not get too.

One more ability added to the game was blasting your poltergust towards the ground to push Luigi into the air so that he can jump over some obstacles.

In the game there are two collectables the first are gems which need some puzzle solving to find and the other are Boo’s who must be revealed with a black-light before being sucked up, both of these do bulk out the game-play however the rewards for getting them are not great.

The soundtrack was really forgettable in my opinion, I didn’t hate the music but none of it really stuck for me.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a great game, it is full of charm and has a lot of personality, this game introduced us too a new villain working along side King Boo which was a nice change of pace and now that the level based system from Luigi’s Mansion 2 is gone we are left with a combination of the first two games, this has the comedy and cartoony nature of the second game as well as the free exploration and realistic boss ghosts from the first game. I feel that this entry in the series adds so many new ideas but slightly lacks the creepy and dark atmosphere from the first game that I really love,  I miss the creepiness of the portrait ghosts and I would really love to see a darker game in the series again.

However I have to admit that this game is the best Luigi’s Mansion game yet and if this is how the future games are going to be then I can accept that.

8.4/10

I hope you enjoyed this review of Luigi’s Mansion 3 for the Nintendo Switch
