New Setup

Hey, everyone. I haven't posted anything in a while so I decided I would. :) Today, I thought I'd share my entertainment realm with you. This is something I've been wanting to do for a while, and since I just recently got a 42-inch LG LCD HDTV, I thought the time was right.

Here's an establishing shot from the couch:


About the TV: It's remarkable, even though a techie from LG had to come in to fix it twice after we kept getting this problem where we would only see the backlight and no power was running to the screen. Now that's it's fixed, however, I can't get enough of the crystal clear picture! Biggest purchase I've ever made, and I don't regret a single penny.

My movie shelves:


Well I don't go to film school for nothing; I love watching movies. Not all of them are mine, though, some belong to my brother. As to who owns what, well, let me just say the good movies are mine and the crap ones are his ;). And yes, I do still have a VHS player and I do watch some once in a great while.

Games shelves:


I'm running out of room, aren't I? These are just my Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii, Gamecube, and NES games. My N64, DS,3DS, and miscellaneous Gameboy games are in other spots.

Well I hope you enjoyed this liitle peek into some more of my life. Thanks for reading. :D

Got A Job!

I now work at JCPenny. Orientation is next week and my first official day is 11/11/11. Thought you might want to know. :D

2 Years On GameSpot

Ok, it hasn't been exactly two years to the day, but my "Member Since" title got pushed back a day from Sep. 1st to Aug. 31st, 2009, so I figured I would just write this today.

Yes, I have been here for two years now, and the second one seemed to go by a lot faster than the first. Still have had a great time with everyone and I plan to be around here for the years to come. I would give mentions to my good friends on here, but I have to get a project for college done and plan to get some sleep shortly after. So to all of you: you know who you are, thank you for a great year, and here's to many more. ;)

Summer Movie Series Wrap-up

Well, summer is at a close right about now.

30 Minutes or Less recieved pretty poor reviews and I knew this before going into it, but I saw it with my brother and we both thought it was hilarious! The people that didn't like it must have gone alone. :|

Looking back on it, this has been a very good summer for movies. There was a HUGE number of releases and most of them didn't disappoint. Here is my top five:

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
2. Fast Five
3. Thor
4. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
5. X-Men: First Cla$$

Tell me your favorite movies of the summer if you happened to see any. I've taken a look at the release outlook for the next two months and not one of those films looks interesting to me :x. So I sadly won't be seeing any movies until November.

Well I hope you enjoyed reading my mini-reviews. :)

Summer Movie Series #13: 30 Minutes Or Less

Last one.

RotPotA (:P) was VERY good. I'm pleased to say that it surpassed my expectations and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Today we have 30 Minutes Or Less, which looks to be like a good comedy to close out the summer movie list (for me, anyways :P ). I was about to say that it's gonna be weird seeing Jessie Eisenberg in a comedy film after his Oscar nomination for The Social Network, but his big breakout role was the lead in Zombieland, so yeah. As for Aziz Ansari, haven't seen him in.......anything, but he seems like he could be the next Chris Tucker in a way. Anyway, this looks to be a good laugh with friends at the theatre :lol:.


Summer Movie Series #12: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Cowboys & Aliens was very entertaining. That being said, that's all it really was, just a good time at the movies. I don't think I'll ever need to see it again. I've gotta say, though, Harrison Ford was just as badass as always!

For this weekend we have another Planet of the Apes movie. This makes the seventh one? Oh well. I think they are great movies despite this being a reboot and/or prequel, I'm not sure until I see it. I think these movies always turn out to be interesting though, and finally being able to see how the apes take over our planet is most likely something that audiences have been wanting to see since the end of the original, unless this is an exact remake of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, which I haven't seen since I watched all of the originals back when I was 8 or 9 years old.


Summer Movie Series #11: Cowboys And Aliens

Getting towards the end of the list here. :(

Captain America was very underwhelming. I thought it was just okay, and definately not the best super-hero movie I've seen, although I would recommend seeing it at least once. The casting was alright, but I thought the dialogue was chessey at times. It had a really creative ending though.

This week we have "James Bond and Indiana Jones starring in a western about aliens," and that just about sums it up. When I first heard about a movie coming out called Cowboys & Aliens, I thought it sounded really corny, and I mean really corny. Then I saw the first trailer, and was totally swayed on that thought, and couldn't wait to see it!


Summer Movie Series #10: Captain America: The First Avenger

Harry Potter 7 Part 2 was, in my opinion, the best they could've done with it. The last time I read the book was the year it came out in 2007, so I really don't remember many comparisons and from what I can remember, it was very true to the book! It automatically rose to the top of my list of favorite films of the summer so far.

Today we have the Captain America movie! When I first heard that this was coming out the same year as Thor I was ecstatic. This will mark the third Marvel Superhero movie this year. Now after this one, it will be less than a year until The Avengers finally hits theater. I have also heard that we will have an Avengers trailer right after the credits of this movie!! :D


I Couldn't Resist....

I'm picking up a 3DS tomorrow. Sure I can't see 3D at all, but I want to play the N64 remakes, Super Mario 3DS, and other future titles so bad! Plus I get a $25 gift card for buying one at Target, so that's gonna pay for a good amount of Ocarina of Time right there :P. Since I wasn't planning on getting one for a while I wasn't exactly keeping up with the online features and details about the system, so can someone tell me what they replaced the Friend Code system with? Thanks ;). And whichever it is, feel free to leave whatever info. I need to sync with your 3DS in a comment below.

Summer Movie Series #9: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2

Well people, this is it. The final Harry Potter Movie ever. Ever. I remember just 10 years ago I was waiting in anticipation for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to release in theaters, and seeing it the day it came out on November 16th, 2001. Now 10 years later we finally get the last one. I mean, I don't know what more can be said. If you are a fan of the series you will most likely without a doubt be seeing this one. Well............that's it, really. Wait for my short review and thoughts next time. :)
