Movie Previews: August

I love going to the movies so I am going to hook you guys up with some previews of some movies that are coming out this month. August is looking great if you want to watch movies. Well if you want to watch a certain type of movie. I am planning on watching all of these in theaters this summer. I cant wait to check them out. There will probably be a lot of trailers and little words.

Restaurants: Lakewood Reviews

This week I discovered Yelp and we tried many restaurants that we had never eaten at before. I am excited to say that we had some great new experiences. We tried 3 new restaurants and was not disappointed even once. I will say that I usually dont eat out that much so i felt like I was going to die yesterday but it was totally worth it.

The Watch: Review

A quick review of "The Watch" a movie staring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade (Moss from IT crowd). When the movie was originally released or rather advertised it was called Neighborhood Watch until the shooting that happened. After that they did a quick rename and a very late campaign for the movie. I saw the first trailer about a month and a half ago online, and I was pretty excited. Then I saw a second trailer and heard a pretty negative review. This made me a little less then excited about it. Last night my girl, her sister, and I went to watch this movie. It was a pretty awesome experience.

Dark Knight Rises: Review

So I am going to do a quick review without spoiling anything and then after the break I will mention my problems with the movie. Basically, do not click read more if you have not seen the movie. 

I really really enjoyed the movie, I thought it was a pretty amazing ending to a trilogy... well it would have been if it did not end with such an open door. The one thing that really bothered me about this movie was the ending. The entire movie was amazing, and hell even the ending wasn't even bad, its just not the ending I wanted.

Overall the movie was damn amazing. The action was great, the story was awesome, and the actors did an incredible job. I love how characters were eluded to rather than obviously named, what I mean is Catwoman was not once called catwoman... oh yeah and she has never been hotter to me Anne Hathway really wore that suit well. Plus she did a great job as Selina Kyle. Bane was great. The only thing that killed the overall experience was the speech sound track. It just seemed a little unbalanced, and there were moments that I literally could not understand what was being said. With that aside the movie was amazing, and i am super excited to have seen it. The night before I watched the 2 previous movies and forgot how much I enjoyed them. The series was damn amazing and I could not be happier with it. (Do not click read more if you have not seen the movie. SPOILERS AHEAD)

Saints Row: The Third - Review

I picked up Saints Row: The third during the summer camp Steam sale thing. It was only $13.00 and I had heard nothing but good things about this one and the previous game. So it was a must and was actually one of the only games I was really hoping to go on sale. I dont know if I can come up with the words to describe this game but I will try. After the break you will read my review and reaction to the game.

Comic Books This week: almost a fail.

This has been a pretty rough week for comics. I grabbed 4 new comics from the library and I have only finished one so far. I started reading two of them and just had to stop. I finished 1 and enjoyed ok, and the other is still just sitting there. And if that wasnt bad enough. I started one at home and quickly decided it was not worth my time. So out of five comics, I stopped reading 3, only mildly enjoyed 1, and have yet to start the final one. The plus is that this is all balanced out with the reading of the last 8 issues of Walking Dead, which is always enjoyable. I will make this one pretty quick but feel free to read still in case you were interested in any of these comics.

Girls post #2 Free pass list

Not too long ago I was hanging out with my girlfriend at her work. All the girls were in the office and they were creating their free pass list. A list of guys they would have sex with if they had a chance and would not get in trouble or feel bad about. Well I let them go on for a moment until I decided to make my list. I have recently updated this list and of course I would never have sex with any woman besides my soon to be wife, so I guess this could be my coolest girls I would love to date if I was not in a committed relationsihp.

Walking dead Comic 1-100

Issue 100 of the Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman just hit the shelves this last Tuesday and after finishing it off I thought it might be cool to do a full recap of the first 100 issues of the series. The cool thing will be that I can do this again if they end up hitting number 200 and so it could be kind of a on going thing. In this post I will touch on a couple of my favorite moments, a general overview and review of the series as it stands, maybe a couple critiques, and what I think they should do in the future to keep it fresh. I cant imagine doing this without some spoilers. So be warned I will be spoiling everything in this blog post.

Bad Ass: The movie

Bad ass is a movie staring Danny Trejo as an old Vietnam vet that basically kicks ass all over the place. The whole movie is based off a small 3 minute clip off of Youtube (video posted after the break) that features an old dude beating up some younger dude. The clip was a huge and blew up the internet for some time. The movie... well you will have to read about the movie.

TV Wrap up: Common law, Franklin and Bash, Burn Notice

This week in TV... I watched a bunch of TV this week. Most of everything I saw was actually pretty good. We already have way too many shows to watch on a weekly base and there are a couple more that are going to be added, with White Collar and Breaking Bad. I saw one other new show and if you check after read more you will see what I thought about it.

Walking Dead: The complete Season 2

I burned through season 1 of walking dead about a year ago on DVD. And this last week there was a marathon of Season 2 to get everyone excited about season 3 that airs in October. My girlfriend and I burned through this season in about 2 nights and watched the Talking dead to see a quick preview of season 3. I loved this season, there were a couple slow moments, but over all the season was great. After the break I will do a quick run down and review of the entire season with some pictures. I will keep the spoilers to a minimum, but there will be a handful of things that you will want to skip. I will try to post some kind of spoiler warning before it.

Music: The future

I listen to a lot of music, I mean not nearly as much as I listen to podcasts, but still I love music. The other day I was thinking about some of my favorite CD's and how much I am looking forward to the next ones. I am creating a list of my favorite music and what I would love to hear from their followup release.

Comic book wrap up

Hey Guys,

This might be the last comic book wrap up for a couple weeks. Maybe one more. I am planning on forcing myself to read a couple of books this summer. I will basically be switching gears a bit and moving to reading books for the next couple of weeks. I will give a preview of the books I plan on reading at the bottom of this list. This week I read some great comics, the Boys, Secret avengers, Hellboy, etc.

Girls: The difference between 16 and 30 year old Ricky

Growing up as a sheltered boy, I have always been kind of against the objectification of women, but I would be lying if I said I never looked at girls, especially famous ones and thought they were hot. So of course I have a list in my head of girls I use to love (not really love of course, but thought they were hot) and how I look at them now. So here it is, this might be my only girl post ever. So enjoy it.

Comic Books!! This week.

I read a lot of comic books, probably too many comic books really, but this is part of what makes I could use a single post to write about a single comic, but I kind of like the shotgun approach I am taking with TV shows. Plus those posts would be super short. Maybe with a specifically good comic or one that isnt part of a series or long run.

Black Light Retribution and other free fps games

There is a new trend happening in the video game world, I would like to think it probably started with the IOS and facebook games, like Farmville, Tiny Towers, etc. Or it could have started with all of the failed MMO's, who knows... I mean someone probably does, but I dont want to do the research, what really matters is that there are a lot of free to play games entering the game world right now. In the last couple months I have tried 3 different free first person shooters (FPS) and I am going to give my honest opinion of them.

This week in TV

TV this week.

It was a great week in Tv. A new Futurama, Longmire, Chopped, and so on. Plus I am going to throw a quick thought about a show I never watch, but thought I would give a shot because my girlfriend watched it.
