pumpkin.jpgSay this every year and will say it again, not a big fan of Halloween.  The best thing is the candy is on sale the next day.  However it is all ways nice to watch a scary movie.   Most years will re-watch Shaun of the Dead.  This year plan to watch something on Netflix.  See that they have The Witch on there.  Remember seen the trailers for this and it looks pretty good.

Logan Official Trailer

LoganThe third and (last?) standalone Wolverine movie just had a trailer released.  The movie is called Logan.  Wasn’t a fan of the first two standalone movies.  This one however looks amazing.  The first thing you notices is it looks so much different than any of the past X-Men movies.   Set in the near future were they are not many mutants left.  Xavier’s mind is going and Logan’s powers are fading way.   Have read that it will be rated R.  Think this a good move.  It is the way Wolverine movie should be.  You can see the trailer > here or below.

Complicating the conflict will be a day/night cycle that switches every 60 seconds, with night time benefiting the Devils and day time rewarding the Angels – with increased Armour, Health and superior Weapon loadouts during each team’s prime time.”

Game_Of_Thrones_Season_6_BlurayHave same news to share about Game of Thrones season six Blu-ray/DVD Set.  In past years the sets would come out in February or March.  Just before the new season would start.  This time it’s different.  Season seven will be airing much later in the new year, summer-ish.   So was thinking would be some time next spring before season six Blu-ray set would be out.  Well I was wrong because the set will be out on November 15, 2016.   Just like other years there will be all kinds of extras.  They have had audio commentaries in past season.  For season six every episodes will have one, I think.  Can’t wait to re-watch this awesome season all over again.

The Walking Dead: Season Seven – Episode One

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on October 24, 2016 by getbent57

The_Walking_Dead.jpgIt has been a long wait for the start of season seven of The Walking Dead.  It started last night (October 23, 2016).  The showed ended on the biggest cliffhanger they have ever done.  We knew someone was going to die.  The internet has been a buzz ever since on who it might be.

The show picks right up were they left off.  It was super intense.  Not going to spoil what happened.  But am sure the people on Facebook all ready have.  I know a few people who are mostly pissed off about who died.  That is what makes the show so great.  Everything can change in one moment.   This event will change the whole course of the show.  Think it will make it even better. Can’t wait to see what happens next.  Have some ideas because have been reading the comic books.  If they do some of the stuff from the books we are in for a real amazing season.

Hit Film Express

Hit_Film_LogoHave discovered an very cool looks piece of video editing software.  It his called Hit Film.   There is the main paid version with all the bells and whistles.  However there is a free version called Hit Film Express.   What makes this standout besides being free.  You can edit videos but it all so has built in VFX software.  So you could make one of the those cool videos you might have seen on YouTube.  With light sabres or shoot outs.  Sadly I can not try it out.  My computer is too old.  Am still running Windows Vista.  Still might give it a download to see if it might run.  If not, am playing to buy a new computer in the new year.   Time for an upgrade.
