You might notice a small addition to the movie round-up. Â I will nowÂ PhotoshopÂ an amalgam of the movie posters to accompany the post each week. Â Enjoy!
You know, part of me watches this trailer and wants to make fun of it. Â Another part of me thinks that the movie might actually be fun and even a bit thrilling. Â When I’m split like this it often means I won’t go to the theater, but I do think I’ll seek this out on video. Â One thing is for sure though, all of me agrees than Hayden Christensen’s hat looks downright silly. Â What the hell were they thinking?
The Last Exercism:
I managed to see a screening of this film a couple weeks ago. Â My opinion of it then, and it hasn’t changed, is that they put together a very nice movie. Â It has tense moments, and the lack of a soundtrack adds to the feel of it… and then they completely blow it in the final scenes of the film. Â I was so dissatisfied with how it ended that it actually made me wish I hadn’t enjoyed the earlier bits. Â Completely not worth the $10 unless you really really really feel the need, but when it hits DVD it’s worth seeing at home. Â Alone. Â With the lights off. Â Did you hear something?
Avatar: Special Edition:
It isn’t really fair to put this here. It’s not a new film, and the 9 extra minutes just makes me want to punch James Cameron in the face, because it’s like when they release a DVD, then later that same year they put out a Special Edition, and then the next year they put out a 2 disc Special Edition. Â Screw you! Â On the other hand, the only way to truly see this film is in 3D on the big screen, so another theatrical run makes sense. Â I’ll probably end up seeing this again. Â I am both a sad and happy panda.
Today begins the first part of an ongoing project. Â Basically it is the embodiment of those “a reason to write every day” things that some communities do that I could never get any communities I belonged to to get interested in. Â The idea is to write, essentially any idea that comes into my head, all into one story, just to get it out of my head. Â Perhaps some of these ideas will eventually become full stories on their own, perhaps this whole thing will evolve into something different. Â Who knows!
Hopefully, the journey will be fun. I present to you… The Awesomest Story Ever Told.
This is something that likely no one will care about but me, however I figured I would make a post about it anyway…
In order to cut back on spam I have set the blog to disable comments on any entry that is more than one year old. Â Probably 99% of spam comments are made on posts from 2006 or older. Â They all wind up in my spam queue for holding and deletion, but I’m neurotic and like to keep an eye on the spam queue for valid comments so I want to reduce the amount of garbage I have to sift through.
Anyway, that’s it.
May you all be blessed with the three “L”s of Christmas…
– from all of us, to all of you…
I previously wrote about this awesome trailer I saw before Transformers and the project named, or codenamed, Cloverfield.
Now you can see it for yourself.
I am already making plans.
… or at least for a few minutes anyway.
Click here. Big buttons play songs, little buttons (or their corresponding keys on the keyboard) make him dance.
To each and every one of you…
I hope something scares the living shit out you.
Everyone should have it done to them now and then, it helps you keep perspective…
However, in my youth I was a roleplayer. Occasionally now while playing EverQuest I’ll mess around a bit, speaking in character, but as with Roger Rabbit “only when it is funny”. Years ago, I would sit at a table covered in books and dice, and 5 or 6 of us would play Dungeons & Dragons, or Top Secret, or Star Frontiers, or any of a plethora of games that we owned.
This is too funny not to link.
Was I ever like this?
Probably. And know, that as I write this, my head hangs in shame.
