Random: 02/19

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: 10/20

Posted by rapaleeman on October 20, 2008

I’m back.  Well back at work at least.  This will be a little different than the usual random.  Well not different, but maybe a little broader in scope if you will.

So I am currently abusing the buy 2 get 1 free deal from Toys R Us.  I bought Star Wars The Force Unleashed, Dead Space, and Saints Row 2.  Oddly, I am taking back SR 2 which I thought I would love.  After further thoughts it seemed stupid.  I’m trading it in for Midnught Club: Los Angeles.  I need me some racing son.

Dead Sapce is a great game.  I got nothing else.  It is awesome.  You buy now.

The Clone Wars TV show is actually not bad.  Better than I expected.  Animation, acting, stories, and overall feel of the show works.  It sucked as a movie, but in small 30 minute doses, me likey.

The Life and Times of Tim on HBO is frickin great.  So stupid yet so funny.  Everyone should be watching it.

Same with Knight Rider.  That show is so stupid it is funny as well.  Terrible acting, and stories, but for some reason I kept watching.  Mainly the car.  And Val Kilmer.  I like Val Kilmer.

Heroes is on again and honestly I am going to bitch about it again.  I am still watching it, but come on.  It can’t get stupider.  Can it?

I got a pair of Globe Fusions and they are extremely confortable shoes.  I kinda wish that maybe I got a size bigger, but they feel ok.  Lots of cushion.  Like a slipper.

I want to see Max Payne.  Bad review or not.  I still want to will see it.

Red Bull has a cola out now called, get this, Red Bull Cola.  It tastes like a Coke Slurpee melted down.  I like it.  Tastes yummy.

Friday Night Lights came back on TV a couple of weeks ago, but I had to download the episodes off of the net since I dumped Direct TV.  First episode was actually really good.  I got the other two to watch, but I have high hopes that I doubt will be shattered.  I legitimately care for the cast on the show, even though they keep changing the damn ages of the kids.  I thought Riggins was a Senior in the first season.  Maybe he failed a grade.

The Mentalist is a great show.  Very funny, witty, and above all just smart.  The producers and writers really do think outside the box.  Thank You.

Terminator got picked up for a full season.  Thank you Fox.

Terreance Howard is out as War Machine.  That sucks cause he is a perfect Rhodie.  However, Don Cheadle is a great actor who I like so we’ll see if this doesn’t bite the stingy production company in the ass.

Christian Slater is in My Own Worst Enemy tonight.  The first episode was great so here’s hoping.  I like Slater.  Ever have since I saw Kuffs.  Then I caught up with Pump Up The Volume, Hard Rain, Broken Arrow, and ,my favorite, Gleaming The Cube.  Yeah the skateboarding movie.  That movie is rad.  It’s ok to say rad since the movie was made in 1991.

And I am spent.  Time for a cigarette.

Why does Heroes suck so much?

Posted by rapaleeman on October 8, 2008

So in thinking of things to discuss I finally came to the conclusion that my opinion on the new season of Heroes need to be addressed.

After finally watching the last episode on my TiVo I can honestly ask: “What was it that made this show so great the first year?”.  The second season was lackluster, but I blamed that on the strike.  This season though is just boring.  It seems the writers are just trying to do things for shock value alone.

I mean seriously.  Silar as a dad?  Claire as a true villain?  Ando killing Hiro?  It just seems to me that the people on this show are looking for ways to basically flip flop everything and in doing such has completely changed how each character is or was.  I understand that characters need to evolve, but when basically every character is doing a switcharoo, then what was the point of the last two seasons?  The only truly interesting character is Peter and even he is an obvious archtype. 

I’m not sure what to think.  Should I give up on the show or maybe I should keep watching in hopes that this extremely obvious storyline takes a better turn and creates a continuity that works for the better.  I don’t know. 

I am really enjoy Prison Break a lot more this year which is the reason I am watching that and recording Heroes.  Didn’t think Prison Break would be so effin awesome this year but it has really rebounded.  Plus I get to check out all of the awesome 24 previews.

I will continue to watch it for now.  If it continues to suck, then I’m not sure how long I can keep up this facade.

Random side-note:  How terribly awesome is Knight Rider.  The show is just terrible, but when the music kicks in and Kitt starts driving I get a little stiff (if you catch my drift).  It’s weird but it is my quily pleasure of the season.
