One Week Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on November 20, 2009 by getbent57

one week Awesome.  One Week is on the list of my favourite movies of all time now.  Was looking though the DVD new releases and saw the cover showing Joshua Jackson standing next to an old motorcycle.  The motorcycle got me interested.  So I read about the story.  A guy buys a motorcycle after finding out he has a really bad form of cancer.  He sets off on a road trip across Canada to find out the “meaning of life” and if he has made the right choices.

This movie has one of the best soundtracks of any movie out there.  This movie is full and I mean full of great songs and they all work perfectly in each scene.  This movie is moving but it all so has some funny bits as well.

I give this the best review I can give.  Go watch it now.

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , on November 18, 2009 by getbent57

david-guetta-one-love-2009 Have had the song When Love Takes Over by David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland stuck in my head for a few days now.  This is a really good song. There are some good and bad remixes out there if you do a search.

Star Trek Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , on November 17, 2009 by getbent57

star-trek-dvd I am kind of glad I missed seeing Star Trek in theatre.  “Why?,” you might ask.  Well it was ok.  Might get shot for saying it but it was an ok movie nothing special.  I know there is a lot of hype and it made lots of money.  How ever it didn’t blow me away.  It looked great and very ones role was awesome.  The thing that bugged me the most was the lens flairs in ever scene.  Drove me nuts.  The thing I liked the most was it moved at a prefect pace.  Didn’t get bogged down.

This is an ok movie nothing special.  I am sure if you are a Start Trek fan you have seen it.  How ever if you are not a fan or no clue about Star Trek this is a rent.

Top Gear Series Fourteen

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , on November 16, 2009 by getbent57

Well series fourteen of Top Gear aired last night Nov 15, 2009.  I just finished watching it.  It was great.  It was like they were never off the air for a few months.  This guys are so funny.  I favourite bit was when Richard Hammond got out of this car after spending the night in it.  He had a CD stuck to the side of this face.  Another good was when a tracker trailer backed into James May’s little car he just got from Jeremy Clarkson.

MX vs. ATV Reflex Demo

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on November 14, 2009 by getbent57

mxvsatv Tried the MX vs. ATV Reflex demo today (Nov 14, 2009).  These guys have made a lot of MX/off road games over the years.  Some of them have been better than others.   This time around they changed things up.  Now the rider is separate from the bike.  So the controls are different.  It is a cool idea.  How I found it really hard to control.  The game looks great and the environments are nice.  I just found it very un-fun.  It seemed to hard to control the bikes and atvs were all over the place.

Glee

glee Was flipping though the channels last night and landed on a show called Glee.  I have seen this show advertised and thought not much about it.  I had to say this is a good show.  I am not really into the song and dance crazy that seems to be going around.  But when the guy in the wheel stair broke out into song singing, Dancing With Myself I was sold.  Below is the clip of that from the show.

Up Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , on November 10, 2009 by getbent57

up Pixar has done it again.  Up is unbelievably good.  These guys know how to tell a story.  It is funny, make you cry and think, that is how good a this PG kids movie this is.  Well I don’t thing you will show this to young kids.  Since it is the first time I have ever seen blood in this type of movie.  Mind you in nothing shocking.  I want to say all kinds of nice things but best I can think of is go watch this movie.

A must watch, great around story telling.  Go watch this now.
