She’s Out of My League (2010)

download (1)

We have all met people who were out of our league. But what would happen if you ended up dating that person? That is the story of Kirk(Jay Baruchel) and Molly (Alice Eve) Molly will end up dating Kirk. Molly is a 10 and he is a 5, tops. The story is as you would expect full of friends telling Kirk it won’t work and why and even Molly has a friend saying the same thing. Ex’s show up, both crazy and one even thinks Kirk is gay.

The movie is as you would expect for a romantic comedy quite funny considering he works for the TSA and she is a party planner. Admittedly if I ever found out that is how working for the TSA really was, I would apply that day. So if anyone reading this works for them and has seen this movie and can confirm, let me know.

All that being said while the movie is fun, the acting great and the soundtrack surprisingly well done the movie isn’t perfect. Kirks family and even every ex in the movie is nothing more than a stereotype and we all know how much of a pet peeve that is for me. Come on, put some effort into this guys.  That being said, if you like romantic comedies check this one out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Battlefield: Bad Company

battlefied bad comp

Many younger readers won’t understand this but a long time ago, FPS games weren’t that special. Of course there were games like GoldenEye, Doom, and the severely underrated Red Faction that pushed the envelope. Red Faction, you could blast through walls and back then it blew my mind. You can imagine my surprise hiding from a tank inside a house and having the tank blow the house up with me in it. Progress, eh?

Unlike many other military FPS games, you aren’t saving the world from terrorists or stopping WW3. You are a new recruit to a charismatic group of misfits referred to as Bad Company, who uncover leads to a stolen wealth and they’ll have to fight there way to it before the government snatches it up.

In a world of overblown shooters that try to hard to be cool or effects heavy, Bad Company was a great exception. Your team sells the game with some pretty funny dialogue and over time you do grow to care about these guys. I love that you can jump into almost every house you see, and jump into every vehicle you see so there’s a good amount of variety. The game loses some of it’s luster as you go but the characters and craziness of the stages keeps it fun. Your health doesn’t naturally regenerate but instead you get an injection that  bumps your health back up, the wait time inbetween can be surprisingly tense. Bad Company was a game I felt should have gotten more love than it did but otherwise it’s a real good FPS I suggest checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Joe Rogan: Strange Times (2018)

download (4)

Joe Rogan is back with his rather brash brand of comedy. This time around he will attack such topics as mens activist, cats being psychotic murderers and the fact that a woman invented the dishwasher and a man invented the tampon. Both of these are true by the way. Dishwasher was invented by Josephine Cochrane and the tampon by Earle Haas. Another story he tells is about a girl giving a BJ, getting stabbed which somehow results in her becoming pregnant and having a kid 9 months later by C-section because she has no vagina. Also a true story, I checked.

He of course tells these stories in a much more fun way but I am just saving you the time of googling it like I did. This one definitely  comes recommended. Best wishes, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Supernatural Season 13

download

Supernatural Season 13 deals with the son of Lucifer, Jack. Sam and Dean will travel across dimensions to save Jack and their mother Mary from a dimension where Sam and Dean were never born and the apocalypse was never stopped. The race itself is rather interesting since Lucifer wants to save his son simply because he is the most powerful entity in the universe besides God and his Sister. In fact Jack can even create new angels, which is why Heaven wants him so badly.

The issue is while in the apocalypse world their archangel Michael decides he wants to come to our world and take over since his world is kind of a hell hole. See their Michael is a lot like our Lucifer in the sense that he just wants to rule everything and doesn’t much care who gets hurt in the process. Season 13 is great but it does have its high and low moments. The end of it however is worth the entire trip. Obviously I won’t spoil it for you, but we get to see a few things come full circle from far earlier seasons that most people probably didn’t really expect. I am very much looking forward to season 14, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Texas Chainsaw massacre 2

tcm 2

If you’ve been following my posts for a while you’ll see how I have a taste for those special horror movies that make you laugh and say WTF with your friends. Most people didn’t expect such a treat to come as a follow up to the late Tobe Hooper’s gritty horror classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre . Well, after a 12 year gap, a shitload of legal battles and productions problems we got a sequel, but why were people so pissed?

So we begin with a pair of A-holes driving through the countryside, being jerks and public nuisances, even harassing the local rock station over the phone. Until they went to far and screwed with the wrong truck. While one of there calls harassing Stretch, the local DJ, the truck catches up with them and the notorious Leatherface attacks the truck shredding the truck and giving the punks a taste of his saw. Stretch has the call recorded and brings it to a mad ex sheriff named Lefty who’s obsessed with the “Chainsaw killers” would killed some of family in the first movie. After playing the recording to draw them out for Lefty, the Sawyers emerge and madness is unleashed on Stretch…

Ok, if you want a horror movie, something to chill you to the bone I recommend trying the first. This won’t scare you but if you have a warped sense of humor there’s a lot of laughs. There’s a chainsaw fight, Leatherface trying to waltz with a victim, a chili cook off, and Chop Top. Bill Mosely is amazingly quirky and over the top as Chop Top who steals the show more then Leatherface, although Dennis Hopper as Lefty is great too. There’s a fair amount of blood and creepy stuff throughout but unlike the first, this is definitely a movie and a solid dark comedy. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Aquaman trailer 2

We got a treat yesterday in the form of a huge Aquaman trailer that gives us a huge look at movie in general. First I have to say visually it looks improved from Aquaman trailer 1 and the Atlantis stuff looks absolutely stunning. Jason Mamoa is charismatic as always and I can’t lie, he pulls off the classic outfit at the end of the trailer; Amber Heard seems natural as Mera and I was glad to see her use her power. I was glad to see Manta in action but I am really liking Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master. I’m really digging how it’s shaping up. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Movies We Love Day 6:Zombieland

Zombieland Now you guys had to have known this movie would show up today after this mornings post about Zombieland 2. This one is great for so many reason to me. It has a great story, great cast and is simply funny as hell. Whether its Woody yelling “Thank god for rednecks” while shooting a fully automatic weapon or Bill Murray simply being Bill Murray. I don’t really have any fond childhood or heartwarming memories, I honestly just really enjoy it for what it is. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
