Journal Journal: Avengers

Every time I go to the theater and have a "meh" experience, I tell myself next time it won't be like that. I'm always wrong. The movie itself was good, but the patrons are a bother. Some guy behind me loudly clearing his throat every few minutes. Candy wrappers crackling almost the whole time. People laughing loudly. People talking. But the worst is the couple directly next to me with their two small kids; oldest must have been 6 or 7 and youngest was 3 or 4. Guy had to take his kids

Journal Journal: X-Men

For as cool as (most of) the original X-Men trilogy is, I've got to say First Class is by far the best of the series. While the trilogy does explore the differing ideologies somewhat, most of the time is devoted to kick-ass fights. First Class has its fair share of action of course, but the far more interesting aspect is the development of the split between Magneto and Xavier. Naturally there are parallels to various struggles between different groups of humans, which of course proves Magn

Journal Journal: I love it when a movie pleasantly surprises me.

I've had Beautiful Boy in my Netflix queue forever; finally got it this weekend and gave it a watch. I knew nothing about it other than the main cast and the description on Netflix. Even before I saw the film it was off to a good start; for my money Maria Bello is one of the most beautiful women in the world (suck it, Angelina Jolie). Then as the movie progresses who has a small role? Not only Alan Tudyk, but also Moon Bloodgood; phenomenal. The cherry on top? The very minor role of hot

The typical Slashdotter will lose his fucking shit if you mention Ron Paul in a negative way.

Journal Journal: Finally completed Arkham City

All I had left was the Master Predator challenge. Police Brutality is pretty easy; Natural Selection slightly less so. End of the Line is the one that gave me problems. It took me 20+ minutes to stealth the shit out of it, but I finally did it. The only achievement I've got left is the one to use every move/gadget in a single combo; my problem with that is that there's so many fucking attacks that it's hard to keep track of which ones you've used and which ones you haven't. Also haven't

Comment Re:The ending was fine (Score -1) 235

I hated the ending, but I mostly agree with this. My one disagreement would be about the hollywood vs artistic ending. That's not what the problem was. The problem was that the ending flew in the face of everything the series previously established. But if you're going to go down that road then stick with your decision; don't let a vocal minority drive your creative process.

Journal Journal: Hmmm

Apparently ground up beetles are a common food coloring. This is both fascinating and disgusting.

Journal Journal: Luck finale

I've said previously that I don't much care for horse racing; as Luck would have it horse racing is just the backdrop against which a compelling drama takes place. This was truly beautiful television; I will miss it.

Journal Journal: Walking Dead finale (spoilers)

I haven't read the comics, but I do read some stuff on reddit so some of it was spoiled for me. First of all, they are finally off the fucking farm; halleluiah! Jimmy driving the RV was the most pointless death ever. I literally laughed out loud at the stupidity. I'm not really sure what Lori was so fucking pissed at, though; she all but told Rick to kill Shane, and now that he did she recoils from him? What the fuck, cunt? I also thought it was funny when Carl cried about it; seemed so

Journal Journal: Mass Effect 3

I'm not exactly sure how far I'm into the game, but based on the missions I've completed I'd wager I'm at about 80 to 85 percent complete. I'm doing all the side missions as well, so I've sunk about 23 hours or so into it so far; this is at a moderate pace on normal difficulty. I'm just going to go over some likes and dislikes in no particular order.
