I went to see Wreck-It Ralph because I heard it was good.
Also, John Lasseter really hasn’t let me down much, and I LOVE how careful he is about storyline. There was also the fact that I grew up hanging out in candy stores and donut shops playing classic videogames, and it looked like there were a lot of videogame references.
Well, I went to see the movie when all the kids are in school (I don’t have a day job, so I can go do stuff when I want) with my wife, and WOW, did we both love it.
There were real characters, the emotion was deep and sincere. The storyline was tight and focused. There were a few real belly laughs and also tear-inducing moments.
But will your kids HATE all of the older references, or all of the jokes for the adults?
Only if they have no heart! Th world of the videohgames is colorful, fun, and imaginative. The language is directed towards kids, but the themes are about friendship and lonliness, and what it takes to really enjoy your life no matter your “station”/
I SUPER-DUPER RECOMMEND seeing this movie, and if you have kids, I TRIPLE-DUPER RECOMMEND IT!
So Tonight I went to see SKYFALL, the latest 007 movie that had a whole bunch of nostalgia for the 007 fans. In this installment, James Bond has a great reason for why he’s on this mission, and then a big question surrounding what his motivations mean.
I won’t give any spoilers, but I can tell you that Javier Bardem, as the bad guy might as well be Dr. Evil because he’s kinda ridiculous. Yet…. it’s ok because he’s insane. Somehow, his whole “I’m a gay bad guy” is acceptable, even though a little silly.
The whole “007 for the 2010′s”, with less “gadget-ty” gadgets, and all of this “I’m getting old now” themes work, since it’s nice to acknowledge the traditions, yet kinda wink to the audience about them.
So, did I enjoy it? I guess so… I actually didn’t love it as much as a lot of people seem to, but it was pretty cool. I am a bug stickler for storyline, and there were some things that really make no sense, some silly “booby traps” and things like that, and the bad guy’s plan is really over complicated, but hey- what did I expect, right?
I’m glad I went to the theatre to see it, buut had I just seen it on the small screen, I would have been fine with that.
So, because I have been working to create residual income in my life, I get to do fun things during the day. As a comedian and actor. I’ve created several characters, and today I got to record a SONG for one of them! He’s a rapper named “Gangsta Fag”
– Yes, you read that correctly.
He is the “Hardcore Hip-Hop Homosexual”, and his raps are just over-the-top and hilarious (well, I think so , at least!). Whenever I perform him, the crowd just roars with laughter at how ridiculous an idea it is. I actually created him in 2000, and someone else came out with a character named the same… a few months later. Some people say he stole it, but whatever.
What do I care? Now I get to do whatever I want during the day, and the residual income comes in. Whether I’m acting, writing, or making music, I go to the mailbox, and look to see if there’s a check that day- How fun is that?
I can’t believe that there are people out there who believe the ridiculous lies that are being told about the healthcare reform stuff.
Death Panels? Are you serious?
All you have to do is look at who loses money if something happens, and you’ll see where all of the crazy claims are coming from.
Fortunately, the White House is ahead of the game, and has created this site to explain exactly what is going on in the healthcare bill- Don’t believe that STUPID email!!!! http://www.whitehouse.gov/realitycheck/
