Pumpkin Carving 2010

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , on October 31, 2010 by getbent57

With today being Halloween and I thought it might be a good time to get around and carver the pumpkin.  Like the past two years I just download a template.  It is so much easier.  Didn’t put a hole lot of time into.  But  I think it turned out ok.

Top Gear’s Wild Ride

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , on October 30, 2010 by getbent57

Was looking up info on Top Gear, hoping to see when a new series was going to start.  I found out the show was featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes.  It is called Top Gear’s Wild Ride.  If you are a Top Gear fan the story doesn’t bring any new info.  How ever the do show the host driving around the track in with Stig.  From the look of the film it looks like it was shot in the summer.  Not sure how long the video below will be up for copyright reasons.  How ever you can see the video > here as well.

Jackass 3D Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on October 29, 2010 by getbent57

Jackass3D Well saw Jackass 3D last night.  Not sold on the hole 3D thing yet.  It is cool but not worth the price in my opinion.  Don’t think this movie need 3D.  The open of the movie in 3D was cool thou.

As for the movie itself was a bit boring.  There are some funny moments.  It seems like they were trying to hard with the gross out stunts.   Going to say it I think this movie was made just for a cash grab.   Was a bit disappointed may be the DVD will make up for with all kinds of extras.

I say save your money and wait for the DVD its is sure to have more stuff.  This movie didn’t need 3D.  Was a bit let down.

Red Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , on October 28, 2010 by getbent57

Red I had just seen Red (the new movie) and it was awesome.  I knew I would like it just from see the trailers. It is way better than I thought it was going to  be.  It has every thing a good action/comedy needs and it does every prefect.  Every one of the characters are funny and bad ass at the same time.  Have to say there is some kind of hot seeing Helen Mirren firing off heavy weapons.  The action is over the top(which I love) but not to over the top that it makes it unbelievable.  There is only one thing I didn’t like, which happens in every action movie.  There wounds way to fast.  Well it is a movie after all.

I enjoyed every minute of this movie.  Will be buying the DVD or Blu-ray when it comes out.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Demo

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on October 27, 2010 by getbent57

NFSHotPursuit Gave the demo a try for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.  This brings back what NFS was like back then they first started coming out with these games.  Well of course it is updated.  This one was made buy Criterion Games.  The same people that made of of my favourite  games, Burnout Paradise.

Going to come out and say it.  The demo is a bit of a let down.  Will get the good things out of the way first.  The game looks awesome.  The cars look awesome.  I like how they give some background on the car you pick.  Plus the lady that reads it to you is nice.  Now for the “bad”.  They give you to races to pick from.  Which is pretty standard for a demo.  Here is the kicker you can only play one of them.  The other is unlocked when some one on your friends list plays the game.  Well that’s great if you have someone on your list that as played it.   The other let down is what I call “racing game wall riding”.   If you have every played a racing game you know what that is.    It is when you try to make a turn and end up riding the wall or edge of the track.  When you try to stop it you end up crashing into the other wall on the other side.  Ping pong back and forth until you crash and the end of in last place.   I am sure with practise I will get better.  But with only one race to pick and two cars I can’t see myself getting much practise in.

The game will be out November 16, 2010.

csdtbw Decided to make a video for the song Handgun/Shotgun by the band Carleton Stone Drives The Big Wheel.  Really like the song so that is why I made it plus I had not put a video together in awhile.  Really enjoy editing videos.  If you are wondering that the movie I used.  It is called The Kansan.  It is a public domain movie so I shouldn’t get in trouble for using it.  Not sure if I will get in trouble for using the song.  Time will tell.

Canada’s Worst Driver 6

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on October 25, 2010 by getbent57

Season six of Canada’s Worst Diver starts tonight (Oct 25, 2010).  This is one of my all time favourite shows.  Not only is it funny and fun to watch it amazes me how the people got and keep there driver license.  From the trailer they have been airing it looks like they got a bunch of new challenges.  Can’t wait for it to start.

Paranormal Activity Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , on October 24, 2010 by getbent57

ParanormalActivity I know that Paranormal Activity came out a year ago but I didn’t see it until today.  The second one was just released in theatres so I decided to check out the first one.   I didn’t buy into to the hype around this movie then it first came out.  They were saying it was scaring people so much they were walking out.

When it I first started watching I was board.  I know most “scary” movies like to build up for the big scares for the end.  The good stuff didn’t happen till over an hour in.   The paranormal stuff is done very well.  But the lead actress makes if awesome.  When she is scarred or scream it feels so real.  It was she was really freaked out in real life.  However the in between acting is hit or miss.  So times they feel like they are a real couple then not.

Have to say this is a very good “scary” movie if you can stick with it to the end.  Takes a long time to build up but the end paranormal activity makes the movie.

Survival Of The Dead Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on October 23, 2010 by getbent57

SurvivalOfTheDead Well I had to check out the Survival of the Dead just because.  This is the latest in the “Of The Dead” series from George A. Romero.  Was thinking to myself this is going to bad from the trailers.  Well it is not as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Not saying it was awesome or any thing.  There are some good parts.  For most of the movie the people don’t do stupid things.  However at some point one or more has to do some thing stupid and you want to yell at them.  One bit of a let down is some of the FX’s are pretty bad.  The CG has a made for TV feel.  Something like you would see in the old tv show Xena.

Over all I have seen much worst “zombie” movies.  This was a surprise it was as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Give it a rent.  It will not scary you but still a fun Halloween rental.

Treehouse Of Horror

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on October 22, 2010 by getbent57

THE SIMPSONS: Beware of ouija boards, vampires and unexpected tricks in the 21st annual "Treehouse of Horror" trilogy.  In "War and Pieces," the first of three spine-tingling tales, when Marge encourages Bart and Milhouse to try playing wholesome, classic board games, the best friends  discover that board games aren't boring after all when they find themselves playing a real life game.  The supernatural spells continue in "Tweenlight," when Lisa becomes smitten with mysterious new student, Edmund (guest voice Daniel Radcliffe), only to  discover he is a vampire. After Lisa and Edmund run away to "Dracula-la Land", it's Homer to the rescue as he tries to to save her before she becomes one of the undead.  In the final frightening fable, "Master and Cadaver," Homer and Marge set sail on a romantic second honeymoon, but are interrupted when they rescue a castaway named Roger (guest voice Hugh Laurie) and learn the story of his deadly escape in the all-new "Treehouse of Horror XXI" episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Nov. 7 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.  THE SIMPSONS ™ and © 2010 TTCFC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Was looking up to see then this years Treehouse of Horror was going to air.  Like past years it will air after Halloween.  How ever I am sure there will be a marathon of the past ones on if they haven’t all ready been on.  Threehouse of Horror XXI will air November 7, 2010.  Look forward to watching the new one each year.  This one should be good.
