47 - S.A.T.s Round 2 - the Losers!

Spoiler Alert Theater again, great weekend for the movie goers as the New Nightmare on Elm Street is hopefully doing gangbusters right now. And for me I had the day off so I went and saw the Losers this morning, nice quiet 10'o clock showing, just me and 3 other people which was nice as a packedhouse usually makes me annoyed. Short and sweet, the Losers is a great flick.
If you liked the comic, go see this movie.
If you like action flicks with comedy, go see this movie.
If your a lady that like starring at Chris Evans, go see this movie.
If your a guy like me who likes looking at Zoe Saldana being hot while kicking ass, go see this movie.
Basically everyone over the age of 10 should go see this movie, it's just plain good.

46 - More great News

And how couldI forget, even more great news. Getting my comuter back with a nice new bigger hard drive in it was nice but this is great, we got ourselves a house. Went looking last Saturday and put in a bid on Wednesday, little back and forth and as of Sunday they excepted our last offer.
So come the end of next month we will hopefully be closing with no problems and I will have me a great new place for me and the wifey on, get this, Toni street!
Life is a riot.

45 - Kick Ass, it did indeed and the introduction of Spoiler Alert Theater

Alright so I hope you are all ready for the S.A.T., Spoiler Alert Theater as I am going to call it. Don't know if I'll keep up with doing movie reviews but it seems like a fun idea at the moment. So we will start with:

Kick Ass, oh yeh I had to be there on opening day to see it. And I know what I the comic fans out our thinking, how we got burned soooo damn bad on what Hollywood did to Wanted. I'm not saying Wanted was a bad movie, it was good, it just should have been called Assassins and they should have gotten someone to make a film out of the comic book Wanted that was filled with frickin super villains, not assassins. That would have been awesome but I digress...

Any who even from the trailers it was good to see that they were actually making a movie version of Mark Millar's Kick Ass and not an interpretation. Tons of action, great buckets of blood, not for kiddies, great stuff. But so everyone knows going in they did make some changes. A couple of plot points from the book show up differently in the movie and a few instances go down different, but not in what I would say is a bad way. And in a way the changes are kind of cool cause going into a movie were I would have known everything that was going to happen might have been a little bit of a let down. One of the biggest changes was that Hit Girl plays a much bigger role in the movie than she did in the book, but the actress is great, nothin quite like a cute little girl lobbing off body parts with a smile, great great stuff.

As it was the whole damn thing was a blast from front to start and anyone with the stomach should go see it as it is well worth your movie money.

44 - Tax Day

April 15th and the only thing I am finding taxing is waiting for my computer to get back from the shop while having to many projects on hold. Perfect time for my hard drive to crap out on me. But if all goes well then I will have all of my old data on a brand new 500 gig drive tomorrow.
I guess we will just have to wait and many little time...
