*This was a review I did for a class, I personally feel it's a bit much, but I'd love to hear from what you think, should I do more reviews like this?

     Clint Eastwood, director of Unforgiven (1992) was born May 31st 1930, his acting career began in 1955 in B-films. Nearly giving up the career for only receiving uncredited bit parts, he finally got his big break with the series Rawhide(1959), shortly after he began getting more success with Spaghetti-Westerns, most noticeably “The Man with No Name” Trilogy. In 1971, Eastwood took another major step in becoming who he is today. Eastwood directed his first film Play Misty For Me(1971) which started a long career for the man; his potential was fully realized with Unforgiven, which had garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Actor (for Eastwood) as well as winning Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture (both went to Eastwood) showing the respect for the masterpiece he crafted. His career continues to this day with ups and downs, but nonetheless he still shows why he's such a beloved and huge star, as well as still showcasing his strengths as a director.

Night of The Were-Hog-Sort Of Unleashed

 Here's a cute short for gamers and animation fans, Night of The Were-Hog, starring Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog. This short is pretty well animated  and features some nice effects for the ghost characters, everything looks less like a horror story implied by the title, but it's all adorable. While mostly silent, featuring few grunts and such, the short manages to tell its story without the need for dialogue, it's all good visuals lending itself to the story. Overall this is a fun, cute short cartoon deserving of more recognition. This short is even better than the actual game itself, which isn't saying much but there's that.
