Thought I would leave a post about what's been going on lately. Started my third week of vacation for the year this past weekend, and have been trying to relax some. Unfortunately I have plenty of housecleaning ahead of me and I am hoping to prolong It a bit by posting. I took a weekend trip up to my good friend Bill's house in Flagstaff, AZ. As usual we had a good time, drinking beers, watching movies and playing video games.
Of course there was a serious amount of Guitar Hero, but we also tried out a slightly older game, X-Men Legends 2, which we found sadly lacking. As both of us are BIG fans of Marvel's Ultimate Alliance, this precursor had similar game play, with a horrible roster of X-Men characters. We didn't play it that long. His neighbors invited us over to play some 360, but when we got there we spent the whole night going old school with some classic NES games, with Tecmo Super Bowl, Duck Hunt, Chip and Dales Rescue Rangers (A certified classic!) Tetris, TMNT Arcade and Battletoads.. Along with some sweet Contra action which I owned at. All in all we had a pretty sweet time.
We also caught a bunch of flicks, like the Descent, which was pretty good for a horror movie but I thought had a crappy ending, and Casino Royale. Bond started off good with that great footrace, but quickly went downhill. The movie was unnecessarily long with not enough driving the character. Bill's wife, Carmen, said that Daniel Craig was a terribly wooden actor, worse than Keanu Reeves, whom she had complained was the worst actor she had ever seen since watching Sweet November the night before. My only response was that somewhere, a paper bag lay in defeat, as Keanu had just acted out of it.
My brother and I also watched Blades of Glory last night. Sadly it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Not to say that it was good as it wasn't... I was just expecting it to be excruciatingly horrible. My brother and me love seeing bad movies together, I don't know why really, we just love adding our own commentary to them. I will say this for Blades of Glory, Jenna Fischer, Pam from The Office, looked super hot in a garter and lace lingerie number. It was almost worth admission for that alone.
One more thing of note this past weekend was the premiere of Drive on Fox. I really enjoyed this show.. sort of a drama Cannonball Run, plenty of fast driving and action... you should check it out.
Hope you all take it easy.
End of Line.
