AMC Theatres sent me free tickets to see Begin Again this weekend.
R.I.P True Blood 2008 - 2014
So as one Vampire TV show based on a book series comes to an end; I shall begin another.
Saw The Giver Saturday; I really enjoyed it. Left me with so many questions; I think I will need to read the books.
Got a few more Redbox free rental codes this weekend the first flick is Noah.
Really really wanted to see this in the theatre. So hopefully it is as epic and full of modern spectacle at home.
Saw Let’s Be Cops last night … and would you believe it they didn’t show all the jokes, gags and best parts in the trailer?!
So yeah it was pretty good. Best comedy of the summer I think is still 22 Jump Street followed very closely by Tammy and Neighbors but Let’s Be Cops was a damn good time and some good laughs. It also didn’t hurt Jake Johnson gets shirtless in it too! Good lord the the things I would do to Jake Johnson! Also didn’t hurt that Damon Wayans Jr. doesn’t act like a Wayans. Whew.
forgot to post that we made our own new release double feature last sunday :) TMNT was quite the surprise; i went in with really and i mean really low expectations and walked out very surprised at how much i liked it. i am a dyed in the ninja mask rapheal fan but i am loving the new movie version of mikey; he had all the best lines! but dont get me wrong raph was great in this too. :D
to steal from a review i read for into the storm … it’s pure “disaster porn” and it is. i do love my disaster movies but into the storm is no Twister. after the effects, Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori from the walking dead) is the best part of the movie and unfortunately she is stuck in a very weak story. but go for the disaster and you will be satisfied. .
Currently playing Resident Evil: Revelations … breaking my “i will play the resident evil games in order” rule. Holy crap if this isnt a scary as fuck scream and jump game! I am having many a flashback to playing the first resident evil game. I have jumped i dont know how many times and screamed at least twice on each episode/level/chapter so far … and i am only halfway through Episode 2. These fucking B.O.W.s are falling from ceiling vents, rolling out of chests and jumping out of wardrobes and bathroom stalls! The creatures remind me a lot of Silent Hill type creatures. At one point tonight I was getting attacked and the battery in my controller fucking died … which then Jill died too. >_< ;_;
But I am really digging it and having a lot of fun. Even made a friend on my first run through in Raid Mode the online multiplayer co-op game.
I was coming back to my desk from refilling my water bottle when a coworker stopped me in the hall and said “Robin Williams died.” I thought for a second “who could she be talking about? what other person has the same name as Robin Williams?” And the look she had was of complete sadness and I knew right then who she meant.
Even just beimg told he had died I didn’t want to believe it. So I went directly to CNN.com … And there was nothing there. Hmmm maybe it’s an internet hoax. So I went to google news and there it was; but I still didn’t want to believe it. CNN didn’t have it, so it’s not true. I just stayed on CNN.com and kept refreshing the page. Nothing … Refresh … Nothing … Refresh … Oh look an interview with Daniel Radcliffe on which of the Harry Potter movies is his least favorite … Half Blood Prince btw. Refresh … There it is … Robin Williams … Dead. It’s true.
My heart sank. I started to shake. I immediately went to the cinema in my head; recalling Popeye, TOYS, Birdcage, To Wong Foo, Jumanji, Hook, Aladdin, What Dreams May Come, One Hour Photo, Ferngully, Happy Feet, Night at the Museum, RV, Good Morning Vietnam and then my thoughts went to Mrs. Doubtfire and tears started to well up … Then back to Toys again… one of his probably least popular films … It was a bomb at the box ofice but I love it. LOVE IT! Ok Scott you are about to cry at your desk. I went back to my cases, but I just kept thinking about how this couldn’t have happened.
Robin Williams is one of my all time favorite actors and comedians and honestly he and his work has been so entrenched in my life … It feels like a close beloved family member has passed. This really sucks.
My thoughts go to his amazing daughter Zelda, my thoughts go to his son and his wife and the rest of his family and fans … my thoughts are with you Robin. God damn it. I’m going to be selfish … You left me … Us to soon.
