Forgetting Sarah Marshall

download (13)

The other half of Get Him to the Greek, Forgetting Sarah Marshall is about a man trying to, you can guess, forget his now ex girlfriend Sarah Marshall. His plan of running away to Hawaii hits one tiny snag. Sarah and her new boyfriend Aldous Snow ( the same Aldous from Get Him to the Greek)

This actually gets even worse, see they actually share a hotel. Then they end up at the same restaurant. This is really just the last thing a guy wants. He can actually hear their sex life. To combat this he decides its time to take a yoga class. Which they are of course at. And they are both amazing at.

Things aren’t all bad for the poor guy, he make some new friends, meets a girl, finishes his musical about Dracula. The movie is pretty fun. The movie could have been better, but there are worse movies out there. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Daredevil

daredevil movie

Before he was the Bat, he was Devil in a movie that people liked when it first came out but soured in time. It did get Ben Affleck with Jennifer Garner, so that’s something.

Daredevil is the story of Matt Murdock,, the man without fear. Blinded by chemicals as a young boy in a accident after seeing something that broke his heart, he quickly learned he had something more, his other senses were raised to superhuman sharpness. While his father fought his way to redemption, Matt learned to perfect his new skills and learned to fight like his dad. Like every hero to be though, his father is beaten to death in a alley for not throwing a fight and the pain drives Matt to grow up to become a attorney by day who’s falling in love with a beautiful, mysterious woman named Elektra and the costumed vigilante Daredevil at night, hunting the Kingpin of crime in Hell’s Kitchen and his assassin Bullseye.

I’m getting this out of the way, yes, the Netflix series is WAY better than the movie but people crap on the movie more than they should. 14 years later, I still enjoy it. I can’t in no way proclaim to be a fan of the comics; I never read any. There’s some pretty badass moments and in a pre Nolan- Batman world, I liked how it was a dark superhero movie that had a little camp in it. I thought Affleck did fine as Murdock and Daredevil. I think the late and great Michael Clarke Duncan was great as Kingpin. Jennifer Garner was fine as Elektra but there’s a couple of times she drops the ball with the line delivery and WTF is with the outfit at the end. Collin Farell as Bullseye is probably the weakest link, he ain’t really got much personality and just kills shit in cool ways. Actually, I take that back, the weakest link is the damn playground scene. Oh my god that was cheesy as fuck. Overall, it’s not a masterpiece but it’s got some cool stuff in it so I’d recommend it a pre owned or crap bin price. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Get Him To The Greek (2010)

download (12)

This seems to be a spin off of another movie called forgetting Sara Marshal, tho I guess it could be a sequel maybe? Either way they are connected. Russel Brand plays rock star Aldous Snow, and Jonah Hill has to you know, get him to the Greek. The Greek is a theater where he will be playing a rock concert featuring his most popular songs in hopes of jump starting his career and helping save a record label.

The antics that ensue would be insane to most people, hell may even kill an average human, but for a rock star? Its just a day in the life. Booze, sex, drugs, an illegitimate child. This movie has it all. It even has P. Diddy chasing people down a hall yelling that they can’t out run him because he is black.

The movie is great as far as comedies go and any fan of the genre or Russell Brand and Jonah Hill should see the movie. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

 

Prey (day 1 preview)

prey preview

So after a bit of stupidity and some going around in circles, I scored my holiday Black Friday loot: Prey. A game I’ve been drooling over since I first watched the first gameplay trailers. I put maybe an hour into it and I have to say I got hooked, so since I’ve gotten hammered by the question how is it by people I know, I thought I’d just discuss my first impressions.

Essentially you are Morgan Yu (you can be male or female, I picked female for a Ripley vibe.) an employee taking part of a weird alien experiment on a space station, and the subjects escaped, multiplied, and have taken over. It’s about all I know so far.

First, visually this game is breathtaking to behold. Second, I get a heavy Dishonored feel for a lot of the game which is cool, beside some aesthetic similarities, the game is heavily about choices how you  approach obstacles. Moving feels as quick and fluid as in Doom. My favorite thing so far was fighting the Mimics so far. Tricky bastards move strangely, kinda like spiders but can sway like liquid or retreat and take another shape. Two at once can be a hassle to deal with without a gun. I really love the unknowing when it comes to these things, makes for a better immersion. I can’t really say anything bad yet but I’m damn excited to keep going. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Kingdom Come Deliverance

Kingdom Come Deliverance is set for release February 13th 2018 and is being described by many as realistic Skyrim. The word travels on whether you go to the next place or stop and talk to every NPC you come across actually could make you miss something. This may be interesting or could just be a huge pain in the neck, but personally I am looking forward to finding out. As for the story I will leave a link below for the story trailer. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Easy A

download (10)

Easy A is a movie about a high school girl that learns the hard way that not only do you have to be careful what you tell you friends, you also have to be careful where you tell them. In an attempt to get out of a weekend with her friend and her weird family she tells one small lie. That lie is that she spent the weekend with a guy she met through her brother. The problem is one, the guy doesn’t exist and two there happens to be a very devout christian that has some very strong opinions on virginity

Unlike most people her age tho our young Olive decides to embrace the rumors and have some fun with it. She makes up some stories, new cloths the whole 9 yards. This of course causes some problems, makes her some enemies, some rumors about an STD goes around may even end a marriage.

In the end it is a fun and entertaining movie, it is far from perfect of course but in the end do we really expect a movie about high school students to be perfect? Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Darksiders 2 (so far)

darksiders 2

I have a lot of friends who love these games with a passion and are craving a third. I get why, I do, but I’m not here to kiss this game’s ass. And no, I didn’t play the first Darksiders game, but I wanted to see what the hype was about.

Darksiders 2 follows Death this time as he tries to free his brother War who is facing war crimes. It’s about now I should mention I’m not finished playing it so I’m not totally sure what the hell is going on but I can tell you my fair impressions from about 8 hours of playing.

So far, I can say I love the art style and epic setting. For a game about Death, everything is very colorful and fantastic, a welcome change from what I originally expected. I feel a lot of nostalgia from the gameplay; combat feels much like God of War with the agility of Bloodborne, with platforming that reminds me of the PS2 Prince of Persia games. There’s some pretty awesome shit in here, but there’s some things in here that bug the living hell out of me like no mini map and sometimes I find the controls can be a little slow at crucial moments but I can’t say I have any huge complaints. I have a lot of fun but I also get really frustrated with it so I’m totally down the middle with this game. May the gaming gods bring you glory, and best wishes.
