THE CABIN IN THE WOODS – Smart. Funny. Scary. Surprising. Unique. Well Cast. Well Written. Did not cheat on the ending. See it!

THE THREE STOOGES – Not as great as it could have been. It was small & not “stoogey” enough. It felt watered down and made for little kids.

And I’m Not Back!

leave a comment »

Again, I haven’t posted a damn thing to this site.

Instead of whining or making excuses about that crap, here are some points of uninterest about my life recently…

  • The kids were sick last week, and got me sick.  Stomach Flu.  I don’t enjoy vomiting, but hey, what can you do.
  • I hit level 50 in SW:TOR.  Waiting for the new patch to come out in April before I start a second character.
  • I’ve picked up my camera again, after a long absence from photography.  Pictures soon, maybe.
  • I am sick of Girl Scout Cookies.  I’ve spent 4 weekends selling cookies on street corners.  It’s for a good cause; we’re taking the girls to DC in June, but… I’m sick of it all.
  • I’m very far behind on my TV watching, movie viewing and book reading.  But what’s new there, right?
  • I’ve almost completed my multi-year project of building a database for my Star Wars Book/Comic/Magazine collection.  Next step is to publish it online.
  • Sadly, I’m too broke to go to ROFLcon III this year.  Very upset about this.

THE RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES-Didnt feel like a summer movie. Needed to take 25% out of the middle & add 25% more to the end. Twas “ok”

SUCKER PUNCH-Im kicking myself 4 not seeing this on the bigscreen. Pure style, no substance. As a Z Snyder fanboy, I liked it, but u may not

COWBOYS & ALIENS – I liked the cowboy parts better then the alien parts. Nothing deep tho’. Ford has mastered the gruff old bastard role.

CAPTAIN AMERICA – Nearly Perfect! Just what I was hoping for! Nice pace, good action, great character, an awesome look. Can’t wait for more!

SUPER 8 – Nicely captured that 80’s Spielberg vibe. Great to see a “kids” movie again, without it being a “childrens” movie. I liked it!

Indiana Braveheart

leave a comment »

At the entrance of  Edinburgh Castle, there is a statue of William Wallace.  You know, the guy from “Braveheart”.

Here is a picture of the statue that I took the first time I visited the castle…

Well, in the movie “Braveheart”, the character, as played by Mel Gibson, looked like this…

But to me, the statue looks more like another knight from another Hollywood classic.  To me, it looks like the last Templar Knight, who is found to be protecting the Holy Grail, in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”.  He look like this…

Am I alone in this?  Does any one else see the resemblance?  Please tell me I’m not crazy.  Thanks!

THOR-The MarvelStudios streak goes on! Tho, u could tell it was made just 2b part of the bigr Avengers universe. Sequels need 2b more “epic”

GREEN LANTERN -Surprisingly good! Fun! Loved the grand scale of the sci-fi. This is what the Fantastic Four movies shoulda been. Awaiting #2

X-MEN FIRST CLASS -Loved it as a period piece. Liked the character relationships. Don’t like screwing of continuity. Better then x3 & Wolvrn

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES-Meh. Did not have the over the top swashbuckling set pieces I’ve come to expect from this series
