Gaming update, DEC 2013

No games finished in Dec.

In whole 2013 I finished 56 games, almost 2/3 of those being adventures.

On other note - as GS and I are growing apart, I'm seriously considering should I keep on going with the blog here. Hence this post might be last for quite a while.

Movies update, DEC 2013

Had time to watch only 3 movies this month:

Kick-Ass 2 (2013) - not as good as i hoped. one of the best directors was replaced by not so good one.

Arbitrage (2012) - nice surprise as i had low expectation! good thriller!

The Place Beyond the Pines (2012) - some nice approaches to storytelling, but as a movie too long.

-Lilly Looking Through

-Secret Files: Sam Peters

-The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief - Chapter One: The Eye of the Sphinx

Movies update, NOV 2013

Fast & Furious 6 (2013) - as a movie it sucks. stupidness is a bit redeemed by decent action, but even there hilariously absurd moments and poor cgi are ruining.

We're the Millers (extended) (2013) - surprisingly good!

2 Guns (2013) - exemplary action movie. the end is a bit weaker, movie remains as excellent entertainment.

Getaway (2013) - garbage!

Red 2 (2013) - pretty good action-comedy as well.

1 1/2 Ritter - Auf der Suche nach der hinreißenden Herzelinde (2008, International/English title: 1½ Knights - In Search of the Ravishing Princess Herzelinde) - around 5years ago i saw a trailer and since that moment I've wanted to see this movie badly. I know the ratings wasn't good, but it didn't stop me. When I finally got the movie, i still had to wait for years as I had no subtitles. Finally I got some help with those as well and now I understand the the scores - it's not a good parody. But the soundtrack is in one of the best i've heard! (actually I got that long ago separately and I often enjoy it)

UPDATE: Shocking is the death of Paul Walker. Fast & Furious star died probably in "a high speed crash in an unspeakably gorgeous Porsche". "Porsche GT driven by his friend Roger Rodas crashed into pole". Beside 2 human casualties were Porsche Carrera GT, one of just 1270 made.

youtube parodies

Kanye West - Bound 2 is one of the worst thing i've seen (except 1st 20sec) and heard! Respect for James Franco & Seth Rogen for making fun of it with Bound 3!

On other end is super awesome Volvo Trucks - The Epic Split feat. Van Damme (Live Test 6), and Channing Tatum's parody is good as well. :)

Game tryout - NASCAR The Game: 2013

As TopGear UK's Richard Hammond raised a tiny interest in me towards NASCAR, I tried Eutechnyx's NASCAR The Game: 2013. Although I'm glad the NASCAR returns to PC after years of absence, I'm not a gamer who benefits from it - such driving is not my alley. Rallies offer more variety.

Movies update, OCT 2013

In a way Oct was crazy. I watched 10 movies, but 8 of those in a 3day period!

Movie 43 (alternative version The Thread)(2013) - crazy absurd! impressive cast.

Man of Steel (2013) - incredibly stupid. total crap.

The Hangover Part III (2013) - not as crazy as previous ones, but still good. ties surprisingly well all the ends together.

The Colony (2013) - so-so.

The Lone Ranger (2013) - stupid and bad.

After Earth (2013) - decent but nothing special.

The Call (2013) - too many stupid moments but overally ok.

White House Down (2013) - so bad its almost good. almost. hilariously stupid and absurd, weak cgi. mimicking Die Hard fails hard.

Lay the Favorite (2012) - slow movie about stupid people making stupid decisions. waste of time.

Iron Man 3 (2013) - unreal what a crap!
