The Big Lebowski rolling onto Blu-ray August 2011

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 No Comments

I have found over the years that there are films that I enjoyed when I was younger which I don’t enjoy anymore. So it being years since I’ve seen The Big Lebowski, which is making its Blu-ray debut on August 16th, I can’t honestly say whether I’d still enjoy it as much as I did. […]

American Graffiti

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 No Comments

American Graffiti is another of many movies that suffer due to generational gaps. It being from the early seventies, there is a substantial time disparity. When it came to a movie like Rocky, I was able to appreciate it more because I did watch it as a youngster, even though there was still a fairly […]

Kung Fu Panda 2

Kung Fu Panda 2

Monday, May 30, 2011 No Comments

Kung Fu Panda 2, whose name doesn’t really denote anything all that original, was surprisingly funny. You’d think that it being a sequel to a kids’ movie it would be dull and completely trite, but it wasn’t. It had some of your standard child movie humor, but, and this is what really got me laughing, […]

Wait, Wait, Wait! Stop! Are There Zombies in This Game?

Monday, May 30, 2011 No Comments

For those of you who don’t get the headline reference, I highly suggest you watch the Green With Envy announcement trailer for the new The Muppets movie. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, there’s a little game called Super Ninja Skydiving Plus Zombies that I’d like to tell you about. Currently in […]

Rocky (Blu-ray)

Friday, May 27, 2011 1 Comment

If there is one problem with Rocky, it’s that it’s not timeless. We’ve become used to fast-paced, special effect/action packed “movies”, but Rocky is more of a slow-paced drama. And even when there is fighting (which is only twice in the movie) it doesn’t even look very realistic. But you see, this Blu-ray was not […]

Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta Postmortem

Friday, May 27, 2011 2 Comments

With the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta closed for nearly two weeks, I’ve had some time to sit and think about my experiences. Yes, I could have done this sooner, but time is needed to fully process… alright! I’m lazy! Here are my thoughts. The gameplay was rock solid, with few initial connection issues […]
