RED 2 Trailer

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , on January 21, 2013 by getbent57

Red2Happy to say there is a trailer now out for RED 2.   Loved the first movie, RED.  When I review that back in 2010 I gave it a 5 out of 5.   So it is nice to see they are making a sequel.   From the trailer > here or below it will keep in tack the same action/comedy that made the first one awesome.   Helen Mirren is back and she looks as bad ass as ever.  This is not out until August 2, 2013.  But I will be going to see it when it does come out.  Think now I will have to go back and watch the first one.

Arrow

Arrow.jpgLast Wednesday (January 16, 2013) Arrow started up again.  For the second half of season one.  The first nine episodes were really good.  So I was looking forward to seen what would have in number ten.  Was a bit let down.  The “bad guy” for this episode has a cool look to him.  The firefighter in all back was nice.  But they didn’t do much with him.  He was very two dimensional character.  The whole episode wasn’t too flat.  But there was a nice twist at the end.  If you didn’t see it yet  I will not spoil it for you.  My last post about Arrow I said there would be elven episodes but after looking at the Wikipedia page it says there are 18.  So there is lots of time for the show to be good again.

topgear-logo.jpgBack again talking about Top Gear series nineteen.  As you might know or not but it starts January 27, 2013.  Now there is a trailer out.  It is short about 40 seconds but pretty funny.  They managed to cram lots of awesome into 40 seconds.  You can check it out > here or below.  In other new over at Wikipedia page they have info on what the first show is about.

“Jeremy attempts to build a car that’s even smaller than the Peel P50. • James road tests the new 205mph Bentley Continental GT Speed by taking it out on a British Rally stage. • Richard is out on the test track in the new Pagani Huayra

Sounds like it will be a good show.  Well they are all ways good. It has been far too long of a wait for some new Top Gear.  Just have to wait about one more week.

ClassifiedReally digging the new song, Inner Ninja ft. David Myles by Classified.  Not really into the Hip Hop/Rap/R&B music.  But every now again there is a song that is really good.  Like most rap song it the chorus or the hook that makes it good.  David Myles goes a great job.  Have talked about one of this songs, Way Too Long a few years back.  Inner Ninja is off Classified’s  2013 album called Classified.  Give it a listen.

Game Of Thrones Magazine

GameOfThronesMagazineWas killing some time after work today looking at the magazines.  One caught my eye because it had Game of Thrones on the cover.  It turns out it is a one off magazine, which is all Game of Thrones TV show.  So I had to buy it.  People at Winter Is Coming.net teamed up with people to Topix Media to put this out.  Have to say it is very nicely put together with lots of great pictures.  There is even a sneak peak at season three.  The magazine is only on display till March 4, 2013.  So if you are looking for it the full title is, Special Collectors Edition: Game of Thrones: An Unofficial Guide To The Most Epic Fantasy Series In History.   You can read their blog post about it > here.

Dredd Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on January 16, 2013 by getbent57

DreddWas in the mood to see an action movie today.  Dredd is out on DVD now so I gave that a watch.  This is a much need reboot.  No need to talk about the other movie that was based on the same comic book.  While this movie doesn’t bring anything new to the table it is interesting to look at.   90% of the story takes place in one building.  While it is a huge building it helps keep the action fast and close.   Speaking of the action.  The shoots outs happen a lot and they are all different.  The slow down effect is used but not over used.  It does get pretty gory in parts.  But they tried in a few scenes to put a human side to all the violence.  Didn’t really work out since a few minutes later the body count keeps adding up.

While I didn’t enjoy this movie it was bad either.  Seen this on DVD which looks great.  But you can tell it was shoot with 3D.  They was they use slow motion and how things come at the screen.  What’s good about this movie is they don’t try to shoehorn too much side story into it. This is a good rent if you are looking for some loud and fast action.

BatmanTheDarkKnightReturnsPart2January 29, 2013 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 will be out.  Part one came out back in September.  Which is pretty awesome by the way.   If you haven’t seen it, you need to.  So you know part two will be just as awesome.  Still thinking about getting the graphic novel it is based on.  It is a really good story.  Takes Batman to a whole new level.  Much darker story then most Batman stories.  The other day DC Universe Animated put out a “First Clip”.   You can see that here or below.  Have to say it is pretty sweet.

wwe.jpgTonight (January 14, 2013) is the 20th anniversary of WWE’s Raw.  They is it is the longest running live episodic show on TV.  It is hard to believe it has been on TV for that long.  The show has changed a lot over the years.  Some of it good others not so much.  Pretty sure there will be all kinds of surprises.  The only thing the are talking about so far is The Rock will be there doing one of this “Rock Concerts”.  That is were he makes fun of the other wresters in song.  Will be watching tonight to see what happens.  Hope they do some cool things.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2013 by getbent57

ExtremeFrontiersBook.jpgNow that I have finished reading the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire: A Game of Thrones.  It is time to start a new one.  Before I move on to the next in the Ice and Fire series.  Going to read Charley Boorman’s booked called Extreme Frontiers: Racing Across Canada from Newfoundland to the Rockies.  As you can guess from the title this is the adventure Charley took across Canada back in 2011.  If you have read this blog in the past you know I am a big fan of Charley and his adventures.  So I had to get this book.  Bought this book back in November.  This is his sixth book and I have them all.  All so have three of his adventures DVD boxsets as well.  All the others have not be released for the North American market.  If they do will get them.

Have been looking to read this book as soon as I heard he was going out on another trip.  Enjoyed all this others.  So this shouldn’t be any different.  His newest adventure Extreme Frontiers: South Africa started airing in the UK this past week.  Will be watching out for this book as well.

A Song Of Ice And Fire: A Game Of Thrones Review

AGameOfThronesBookCoverFinally finished reading book one A Game of Thrones in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.  Started reading this book after falling in love with the TV show that it is based on.  Last Christmas received the four book boxset.  It took me a while to read this book but it was well wroth it.  Have not read a book that I have enjoyed this much in a very long time.  Like how the chapters were broken down.  Each one is told from the view point of just one character.  While other characters will be in there it is told though one person point of view.  There is so many great characters you want to see what happens next.  Even though I seen the first season of the TV show and knew what happens.  It was nice to read it and see how closely the show is to the book.  This has to be the closets to any and film or tv show that follows the source materiel.

If have or not not seen the TV show this book is base on.  You need to go and and get of copy of this book and the others while you are at it.  Since you will want to do know what is going to happens next.  Cannot say enough good things about this book.  Telling very one I know about it.  Now I am telling all those who might read this an awesome it is.
