This was an amazingly fun movie, I took my girlfriend to it on a surprise date and she loved it. If you are unaware this movie is centered about a video arcade game “villain” by the name of Ralph. Ralph is looking to bring himself out of the dark by obtaining a winners medal to prove that he is more than just a bad guy after his games 30th anniversary. This movie takes you through Ralph’s journey for redemption even if it causes him to create some chaos in a few other games. Eventually he ends up in a game called “Sugar Rush” a candy coated racing game where he meets a glitch by the name of Vanellope von Schweetz. When Ralph teams up with Vanellope to get his metal back in the games race he finds that there is more to the simple race game than meets the eye.
This movie was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it very much. If you want to take your kids with you this would be a great movie to do so. I feel just about anyone could like this movie; though the trailers may look tailored for someone who is heavy into classic gaming everyone will like this movie. Great movie for the family’s or a light hearted date night.

It’s been a long while since I have made it to the theater but boy am I glad this was the movie that I went too. This movie got off to a great start with a traditional Bond chase scene that leads to show M’s drastic means to protect MI6. The theme song performed by Adele was excellent, once again capturing the classical James Bond feel. This movie was filled with great memories of bond films past and bond classic moves. Daniel Craig was spectacular in this new bond film feat. Javier Bardem as “Silva” was awesome and furthered his path as a career villain. The character Silva was a great villain in this film as he represented the opposite of Bond. James bond is often shown as the rough hit it as it comes old fashion fighting and investigative work, where as there is Silva who is technical and everything is planned down to the letter and technology based. In this movie we see the return of “Q Branch” and also the long missed Miss Moneypenny. I won’t tell you how or where these two come back into action but they are there as well as an appearance by the Aston Martin DB5.
This was a great movie that any and all James Bond fans will enjoy or even those who are coming into the franchise with new face. The studio was right to wait until this year to release the new film so as to coincide with the 50th anervesery of the series. In a similar fashion to the reboot of “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace” “Skyfall” continues as almost a reboot to the bond series without actually starting over. I look forward to the next movie as will all bond fans.

If you have ever had the problem where you tried to push a door open when in fact it needed to be pulled or vise-versa? If this applies to you or anyone you know then continue reading.
When you come up to a door way do a quick check:
If the door is flush with the frame you need to pull it open.
If a door is recessed in the frame you need to push it open.
Sounds simple enough, from now one you shouldn't have to worry about being embarrassed in public by hitting a door.

This was a good movie and I really enjoyed it, Marvel studios did very well in their reboot of the Spider-Man movie series. It was nice to see the movie return to more of its original roots in instances like the web slingers. Both Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield played their respective roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy wonderfully and I really enjoyed the connection that the two of them established.
When I went to see the movie I saw the 3D version and it was apparent to me that they tried a little to hard on the 3D effects. With that in mind they could have focused more on the movie then the effects. I feel that besides the 3D effects this was an excellent movie and better than the original trilogy. This movie was also darker then the originals but was good all the same.
This movie would be most suited for older age groups due to it's darker nature but would be a fun one as well. Definetly one of the summer greats this year an di look forward to the sequel.

I have fixed the issue with the images associated with my review posts. This should make for a more enjoyable viewing/reading experience.

A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Welcome to the big screen with director Ridley Scott and his 2012 theatrical jewel. Prometheus sends you to the moon far off in space in the year 2089. As the crew searches for what could be the source of our beginning on earth. Not to long after their arrival things begin happen that can not be explained and questions begin arise.
This gripping action tale is full of action and keeps you guessing. There are also allot of gruesome scenes and images making this a feature suited for an older audience. This movie was fantastically done with only the problem that the trailers did give away some of the material but not in just a bad way. The revealing trailers made it easier to understand what was happening but also through you for a loop at times. This movie is ultimately a prequel to the alien franchise but don’t let that fact make you think you know what it entails.
As said before I found this movie not suitable for all ages so parents leave the young ones at home. This was a great movie and props to Ridley Scott on this film and to all the crew as well. I foresee this movie doing quite well in theaters but probably better on disks when all the kids that didn’t see it finally do.

Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki and his army.
The Avengers is a fun and entertaining film for most all ages and comic fans alike. This movie was hilarious so much so that I had to go back for a second time not just because I wanted to but because I missed some of the lines from the audience laughing. As well the there is a second scene after the credits that as with the other marvel movies hints to the next one. The thing with the avengers besides having an amazing cast lineup was the movie was filled with one-liners and everyone was trying to keep up with Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark/Ironman. Even the hulk/Bruce Banner portrayed by Mark Buffalo had a few lines that were worth remembering. The was plenty of action and even a bit of an emotional look into to the relationship between Hawkeye and The Black Widow played by Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. This movie has also done considerably well in the box office which is not to come to any surprise as with most Marvel Studios movies know for doing considerably well.
I’d recommend this film to anyone who love a star studded comic book action based movie. It is a lot of fun for most everyone in the family and is definitely worth seeing multiple times. Till the next one.

With the series finale of House I have had to find a show to replace it. As unfortunate as it is the TV had to said good-bye Dr. Gregory House and his team. In replacement I have finally gotten into The Big Bang Theory I realize this is late in my TV career but I can only watch so much. After a bout of week of catching up I’m glad to add it to the watch list of my TV schedule.
