While her sister Elsa got more of the spotlight on the show, I did like Once Upon a Time's take on the Frozen character.

This was the last pinball machine I played with while at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, NC. It seems like it was made in the 1980's in the era of "interesting" music.
While most Chief Justices of the Supreme Court never had to do so, but if a president is impeached, they preside over their trial in the Senate.

As a big fan of The Simpsons, I gave Netflix's Disenchantment a chance since Matt Groening created this series as well. Despite an obvious art similarity to his other works (such as The Simpsons and Futurama) Disenchantment was certainly a show in its own class for Groening. But Part 1 was certainly not as good as The Simpsons at their prime or Futurama at any period. But I liked it enough to keep watching.
Indiana Jones was one of my favorite movie series. I was excited to try the pinball game at the Carolina Arcade Museum. This one looked in great shape, so I'm guessing it's a more modern production, as the only one I could find to look up was made in 1993. If this machine is from 1993, it was kept in great hands.

Clara Barton was the founder of the American Red Cross. She got plenty of experience in helping others as she was a nurse during the American Civil War.

I was a little too young for Hocus Pocus when it first came out. I didn't realize it was Disney film until I saw it on Disney+. I've wanted to see it for a few years now, as it has gained a loyal cult following after an original critical and commercial flop in the early 1990's. I wanted to save it for Halloween, but...eh what the heck. Why not now?
Most famous for his work The Thinker among others, artist Auguste Rodin lead a new way for sculptors despite being a traditionalist who embraced the past. Despite all his talent, he was also never accepted into the finest art school in France.

This was another one I missed on our first trip to the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, NC. But this time I got a chance to play it. While Atari helped publish the game in America, Namco was the real company behind the game.
While all Kings of England had appointed someone to look over Ireland for them, no one got higher than that than Robert de Vere. He was such good friends with King Richard II (many rumored that they were more than friends) that the Plantagenet king made him Duke of Ireland, which made him the one and only man to have the title.

Last year I watched Netflix's first two parts of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. A very dark twist on the Sabrina the Teenage witch comic/show. My wife found the show too scary, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. With Part 3 out about a month ago, I decided it was time to see Part 3 and see where the story leads us now.

With Byleth making into Smash Ultimate, her stage is Garreg Mach Monastery which is the main area in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. For which you spend the most time in the game. It serves as a school and a church.

It was a little funny to see Byleth added to the roster as I had just finished Fire Emblem: Three Houses right before Byleth was announced for the game. A lot of Smash fans were upset that yet another Fire Emblem character was on the roster. But is anyone shocked?
Last Christmas, my Little Brother (Big Brothers Big Sisters program) Mr. B got me this for Christmas. I had no idea it even existed. I do enjoy Star Wars a lot, and I'm so-so on pinball. Pinball is a decent distraction in an arcade, but video game versions can easily mistranslate. But was this one any good?

Angry Birds was a huge game for mobile phones about a decade ago, and while the steam for their games have run out a bit (compared to their prime) they are still making the movies based on the games. I really had no idea Angry Birds Movie 2 came out last summer until about a month ago. I saw the first film and it was decent but nothing special. I figured this one would be not as good, as sequels often are.
I do recall playing this long ago at a fun park, so I got re-introduced to the original Sega game again while at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, NC. The game was made by Sega in the same year as Resident Evil by Capcom.

The Hardhit Beetle is a boss in the Color Dungeon which was not in the original Link's Awakening, but in the DX remaster for Game Boy Color, so he shows up for the Nintendo Switch remake too.
I remember when I was a kid, and the only Star Wars movies out were the original three Star Wars films. One of the characters that everyone raved about was Boba Fett which I never got the point of. I thought Disney+'s The Mandalorian was going to be about a Boba Fett who escaped from death after Return of the Jedi, but instead it's about a new guy named "Mando."
I don't think I played this one the last time we were at the Carolina Arcade Museum in Forest City, North Carolina. But I think I have played it back in the late 1990's, as I'm almost certain one of the local movie theaters had it near the lobby.

To say Warner Bros has had some flops with the DCEU would be an understatement. But to my shock, they threw a curveball with a Batman movie without Batman and not in the DCEU at all. Warner Bros. made a bold move to base a sole movie on the Joker character alone and got Joaquin Phoenix to play him. I had my doubts at first, but sure enough Phoenix surprised everyone with role role, and he even won the Best Actor Oscar for it too.
Last time I didn't get to play this one at the Carolina Arcade Museum due to time and fatigue. I had played it in the past, which was years and years ago so it wasn't a huge deal.
