My parents came out for the weekend, which means (among other things) free babysitting. That, in turn, means movies!
My wife and I saw two movies in a row tonight: Green Lantern and Super 8.
Expectations were split for these two. I’ve been looking forward to Super 8 since the first trailer (which, btw, showed absolutely nothing taken from the movie). I had initially been looking forward to Green Lantern since it was first announced, . . . → Read More: Review: Green Lantern / Super 8 Double Feature!
Salt Lake City – distant storm at dusk (click for bigger view)
Last week I went on my first trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. I will probably repeat this later… that is one beautiful part of the country.
But before I got there, I had to get on a plane 1800 miles away. And that plane was 2 hours from my house. And it took off at 7am. That means I had to . . . → Read More: My Utah trip, or how I could have died at 6400 feet
This is the kind of stuff that keeps sucking me back into the world of Star Wars gaming. I LOVE this stuff.
I have no idea how the actual game experience will be for “The Old Republic” – all I know is that these cinematics look Awesome, with a capital “AWE”. There are three now, that I’m aware of. “Deceived”, “Hope”, and “Return”.
Here’s everything I know about the story these trailers introduce:

I went to see X-Men: First Class over the weekend. It was opening weekend for that film. Typically, a big film like that would have a huge audience in their first few days, and I’d be worried about it being sold out by the time I got there. But I was surprised to find that there couldn’t have been more than 30 people at the Saturday evening showing I attended.

In light of my most recent post, and the fact that I’m putting the Polls back in the right sidebar, I thought I’d open up a new poll question…
What’s the best X-Men movie?
X-Men X-Men: United (X2) X-Men: The Last Stand X-Men Origins: Wolverine X-Men: First Class
I’m still going with the original X-Men. I think it showed the teamwork aspect better than the others, though really X2 and First Class are really close for me.
Feel free to discuss your reasons in the comments.
Magneto, Professor X, Mystique, Beast, Banshee, Darwin, Angel, Emma Frost, Havoc, Azazel, Sebastian Shaw, and… um… tornado dude.
That’s a lot of characters to pull together in one movie. They did a pretty decent job of using them all. But the focus here is obviously with the top 3 (arguably 4) names.
After coming out of this film, it’s obvious that they started writing “X-Men Origins: Magneto” and said “holy crap, we have an opportunity . . . → Read More: Review: X-Men: First Class
This is funny, but not what I'm after.
I saw an article today stating that the BBC ran a survey and received results showing it was “anti-Christian” and ageist. I don’t live in the UK, nor do I watch any current BBC shows other than Doctor Who. This article doesn’t give any numbers or specifics, either, so I really can’t confirm or deny the veracity of what it says (though I can’t say I . . . → Read More: Christianity on TV
