At it again with an new trail run video.  All the snow was gone from last time.  So that left a lot more mud.  Took a few short clips, mashed them together.  I think it turn out interesting.  Take a look to see if you like it.

A Christmas Story

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on November 29, 2010 by getbent57

Its my day off tomorrow so I plan to watch one of my all time favourite movies, A Christmas Story.   I look forward to watching this every year.  Try to watch it at lest three time plus the times is airs on TV.  In my opinion it is one of the best movies of all time.  It is 27 years old and it still holds up.  It is not quite Christmas till you watch this movie at lest once.

TopGearApocalypse There is a new Top Gear DVD out (well in the UK) called Top Gear Apocalypse.  It looks awesome.  Not sure when it will be out in the North America market.  I hope is does because I would pick it up for sure.  Take a look at the trailer.

TheSnowman I forget what I was looking up but came across a song called Walking In The Air.  It was version song by Nightwish.  The song sound really familiar.  Did a search it turns out it as first recorded for the Christmas cartoon called The Snowman.   I have seen this a few time over the years on CBC but couldn’t remember what it was.  Watch the video and you might remember it as well.

Bought Joe Danger off the PSN last night.  Couldn’t pass up the option.  This game a bunch of other are on sale for 50% off only for a few days (Nov 23 to the 29).  It cost me $7.49 which is way better than $14.99.   Think I will give a few levels a try before I get back in to playing Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.

The Expendables Review

TheExpendables Been waiting to see The Expendables so now it is on DVD I had to give it a watch.  It was better than I thought it was going to be and worst is spots.  Being an action movie you know the dialog  is got going to be top notch.  Not all of it was bad just some seem not to fit or may be it was just me.  Now for the good stuff, the action.  That is why we watch this time of movie.  The hand to hand fighting was awesome.  What was even more awesome were the shoots outs.  There was lots of it.  They didn’t hold back, showed every hit.  It flowed really well.  One big let down was some of the special FX’s seemed a bit cheap.

If you stick around to the end you will see one of the best shoots out in along time.  It is worth watching this movie just for the end.  It is a rent can’t see wanting to watch it more than once.
