Random: 8/24

Oh my goodness.  It has been a while peoples.  Thanks for hanging in there.  A new random coming at you right, about, now!!!!!!!!!!!!

So GI Joe came out and I saw that.  Amazingly awesome movie.  Better than Transformers 2.  Yes, I said it.  Deal with it.

Some new games came out and while I won’t talk about all of them, I will say, that I did buy Madden this year.  Surprisingly good and defiantely worth it.

Chester from Linkin Park had a new single drop for his band, Death By Sunrise.  Different while at the same time so familiar.  I need a few more listens to form a better opinion.

District 9 was a pleasent surprise.  The first 30 minutes had me, but the constant violence and action towards the end was really not needed.  It was a great film without all that shit.

Inglorious Basterds was really good.  Chapters 2, 4, and 5 of the 5 part movie were great and really well done.  Brad Pitt was perfect.

I am addicted to Defying Gravity.  It is a great show and very interesting.  The special effects are also very good for a TV show.

I broke my phone, got a Blackberry, and then returned it.  The damn thing wouldn’t get a signal in my house.  Went back to one of my old Sidekicks.  I may upgrade to the new one again.  I have played with it since and realize the shortcommings aren’t too bad not that I have 3G in my area.  We’ll see.

Shadow Complex for the XBL Arcade is awesome.  Worth every penny of the 15 bucks I paid. 

Going to Florida in September for work.  Going to add an extra day for some fun.

Why do the new PS3 systems no longer play PS2 and PSOne games?  Now I have to go to Gamestop and buy another PS3 used to play my old crap.  Wasted 300 bucks.

Still addicted to Call of Duty 4.  Love that game.  Not so much Gears of War anymore, though I still like it.  The online is horrible with lag and the extra content they pushed was a waste, except for the Nowhere map.  That is really cool.

Bought a Grifball action figure from Halo.  It is cool.

Anyway, back to work now.  I’ll try to make the updates closer together.  If not, follw me on twitter and soon, I may be making a Facebook page.  Might merge this with that.  We’ll see.

Random: 02/19

Posted by rapaleeman on February 19, 2009

Been a while.  Here be the random.

First up is the new Transformers 2 trailer.  Holy fuck is it awesome.  Prime jumping off of a freway to take on 1/7th of Devastator was just breathtaking.  Yes, that was only a piece of the massive constructicon.  It is supposed to stand 120 feet tall.  Let’s just hope the rumored Optimus Prime/Jetfire combination is strong as hell.

Saw the movie Push.  Wasn’t bad.  Really liked it overall.  The only irritation is the fact that the filmmakers made it seem like there was so much more going on.  That is all well and good with an established franchise, but in a newbie film, it got a little annoying trying to figure out what the hell was going on.

The International with always great Clive Owen was well boring.  I fell asleep.  It was like a 20 minute movie jammed into 2 hours.  The only highlight is the phenomenally well-choreographed gunfight in the Guggenheim Museum.  That was one of the most realistic fights I’ve seen in a while.  Except for the lack of reloads.  A 6 shot revolver has, gasp, 6 fucking shots.  Not 15.

Picked up Army of Two for cheap and played through that.  Short, sweet, and surprisingly fantastic.  Where was I when that released?

GI Joe: Rise of Cobra the movie still looks awesome.  I don’t care how crappy the plot is.  I don’t care that they all look like X-Men rejects with the black leather.  I don’t care that the action figures are really shitty looking (how Hasbro messed that up is beyond me).  The movie is going to be balls to the wall action.  Period.  End of story.  Awesome.

The Street Fighter movie (the Legend of Chun-Li one, not the Van Damme, Raul Julia classic) still looks stupid.

Killzone 2 comes out next week.  The demo was pretty good.  A little loose in the aiming but enjoyable.  Looked really pretty.

DiRT is finally getting a sequel.  The screens look great and the fact that there are now X-Games style arenas to drive in, I am seriously pumped.  Makes me wanna go buy a Subaru and rally down the street in front of my house.  Weird I know.  Leave me alone.

Knight Rider is getting better.  Too bad it will most likely, if it isn’t already, be cancelled.  I really wante da re-match between KITT and Optimus Prime.  That was sweet.

Weirdly, I haven’t played skate 2 in over a week.  It’s funny because I couldn’t put the first one down, but I kinda have left the sequel in the dust for Gears2 and COD4.  now I wanna play DiRT again.  Maybe the new DLC will make me want to pick the game up again.

Well, that about does it for this guy.  Holla at yall later.

Random Post 5/09

Posted by rapaleeman on May 9, 2008

So I have browsing the net and found a website that has pictures of most of the actors and what they’ll look like.  Check  it out here.

They all actually look good, well except for Storm Shadow.  I am completely surprised and now have a really good feeling about the movie.  They all look up-to-date yet still the same as their original versions.  I am excited.

Iron Man is still in my mind.  I’m going to have to see it again.  It was that good.

It’s going to be a quite weekend.  I got little going on that I need/want to share.  I don’t have anything new to review really since it has been pretty quite.  I have to watch the Speed Racer animated movie thing.  We’ll see how good/bad that is.  If I grab the new Roots album I’ll pop a review for that up middle of next week.  I got a long week coming up and to be honest I’ll be spending little, if any time on the computer. 

Just thought I’d share, I’ve been playing a bunch of older games lately.  Nothing new, though I really want the Iron Man no matter how bad it was reviewed.  The World Ends With You on the DS is really good.  I’m not going to review since I haven’t beat it yet.  Maybe when I’m done.

This was short and I got nothing else today.  I’ll check in with yall next week.

Random Post for 3/28

Posted by rapaleeman on March 28, 2008

So, for those that visited yesterday and read the blog may notice a lack of a post.  Well stupid me accidently deleted it and it ain’t coming back.  So instead of re-typing it from memory or trying to reconstruct the wit and mastery that went into it I will just take the loss and move on.

Anywho, this has been a really crappy, yet great weak.  I lost my hearing (like anybody really cares), felt like crap, and generally had a terrible feeling of disgust for sports since I don’t consider basketball a sport (I’ll clarify, stick with me).  With that said, Thursday things took a drastic turn toward awesome.

I beat Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core for the PSP and must say that it is just amazing.  The ending is great, and damn near made me cry even though I already knew what was going to happen (since I played FF7 originally in 1999 and again a couple of years ago).  The presentation and quality of CGI and then the playable finale (you have to see to believe/understand it).  Just WOW.  Buy/acquire it in any way shape or form.  It is worth every penny/megabyte.

I’m not going to go on about the Street Fighter movie again (it got deleted), but I will say that the story looks promising, but having Lana from Smallville be your star is a problem.  She can’t really act based on her performance on my favorite show (yes even after the lackluster season this year) but I will save final judgement until I see the movie, or at least the first trailer.  Then I’ll probably bash the hell out of it.

I do need to comment again on the GI Joe movie though.  Two words describe my excitement.  SNAKE EYES.  There are two pictures of Ray Park as Snake Eyes and I must say he looks awesome.  Oh here’s the link of my favorite in case you haven’t seen it.

Ray Park as SNAKE EYES

My 5 reasons why this is a good thing sign:

1. No Goggles.  I like that they went with the visor.  Looks cooler and more deadly than a ninja wearing snowboarding goggles.  Really.  I know that the military uses them and all but they look stupid on a ninja.  Period.

2. The suit.  Glad they went the Metal Gear Solid/Splinter Cell way and made it a type of armor.  Looks like one of the Batsuits.  Very cool.  Plus his “patch” on the shoulder matches the tatoo the character has on his right forearm.

3. Ray Park.  Nice to see he is getting work outside of Ballistic: Eeks Vs. Sever.  Sad that his only good roles are ones where he doesn’t show his true face (Darth Maul or Toad anyone).  He has the skills to pull of the moves and he has proven he can do it in style.

4. The sword.  I’m a fan of ninjas anyway and I’m glad they gave him a real Katana.  They could have gone with a sword like Blade’s or a knife like the original action figure, but he looks money.  Perfect size.

5.  The gun.  Excited they went to a pistol (and a cool one at that).  They could have gone with an Uzi (the original figure had that), but the pistol is cooler.  The director said it was a Glock but he is wrong.  It is an FN Five-seveN (yes, that’s how it’s spelled).  Awesome gun.  Same as Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell.

I’m holding off final judgement since I damned the Transformers movie because of Bumblebee, but once it released and the Autobots transformed on-screen, I was hooked and I am seriously looking forward to number two.  That was my favorite movie from 2007 so I am definately hoping for the best.  I will say though that besides Ray Park the rest of the cast kinda sucks, but we’ll see.

Finally, basketball is no longer a sport.  It may have been once upon a time, but since Michael Jordan perfected the art of the dunk, it has stopped being an official sport to me.  A sport or contest (which is what a game is by definition of the NBA/NCAA) has rules.  The basketball that I have seen does not and what few rules there are/were are enforced whenever the ref feels like it.  Traveling, 3 seconds in the lane, double dribbling, etc… are on every play.  It is called maybe once or twice a game.  Plus when you rush the basket and knock someone over, that is a foul.  The defensive guy should not have to stand still and plant his feet.  That is stupid.  Don’t even get me started on the fact that professional basketball is fixed.  I mean think about it.  How can a person score 50-70 points one game and then 10 the next?

Well that does it for now.  My hearing is almost back to 100% (again, like anyone gives a crap).  The week has turned around too since I also found out that Fastlane will be on DVD on June 8th.  It’s a great show from 2002.  It was essentially Fast and the Furious the television series.  Awesome.  I may do an entire post on that when the dvd drops.  We’ll see.
