“Go direct to a butchers, they’ll be cheaper.”
Dude cuts the meats then tells me it costs a damn fortune, thanks fucker. (Heads up would’ve been nice)
Today I am on the side of big business.
Well it’s nearly 1 in the afternoon, I should get up before sitting on my floor trying to come up with character names while playing Borderlands 2.
I could be there a while…
I’m starting to worry about myself a little. I’ve been getting sad when things end, like films or books, maybe I should get something more going on in my life so I don’t invest myself as heavily in what I’m watching, or reading.
As I’m now working on my birthday, and every day after it for a while, I’ve decided that this weekend will be my surrogate birthday.
Today has been well spent, I cracked open my PS3 and started setting it all up (with free Playstation Plus and LoveFilm, which is nice) and bought the THQ Humble Bundle. So in short I’ve got a buttload of games to keep me entertained for the near future. (also I bought FTL last night its awesome but hella difficult)
New Deadpool #1 is out (or coming out not sure how close we are, release-wise, in the UK) but I haven’t finished the last series because the volume 11 trade is just taking forever to come out.
Tumblr, what do I do? Do I skip ahead and suffer the spoilers or do I wait?! HELP ME?
I’ve been getting very excited over the last few days about getting my internet connection activated tomorrow…
But I just considered that were my connection getting activated tomorrow my router would have arrived already *sinking feeling* to query this I checked my activation e-mail….
The connection isnt active until NEXT tuesday, i must’ve misread the e-mail partly from excitement (and because no one would leave me alone last week) but mostly because I’m a fucking idiot.
This is going to be a nightmare; booking Dark Knight Rises tickets is now going to be a bitch, my job hunt is going slow right down, and I’m going to continue to only get online through my phone. I know half of those arent that big of deals but theyd make this whole transition so much more comfortable.
…and people are wrong, they are far too hard on it. It’s a very good movie.
[I will note that most people are saying it bad because it failed to live up to their individual expectations, that’s not the films fault that’s your own.]
Admittedly there are some plot holes, silly science stuff (sound in space was one that bothered me) and it does jump the shark a little at the end. But all of that doesn’t equal a bad film, especially when it’s competing with elements such as a very good cast (Fassbender nailed it as David, almost stole the show) and a cool visual style (even the 3D was good, well passable a couple of shots worked with it, like the map table thing.) although the story is a little pfft but holds resonance within it’s context (it’s not a direct prequel to Alien but is within the same galaxy and contains crossover elements.)
But what a really impressed with was the tension, it was perfect. I was genuinely scared multiple times(*), and that doesn’t usually happen for me in films (occasionally I’ll get anxious about cringey films but never actually scared, I had to lock myself into a sitting pose so I wouldn’t jump at those surprise moments.)
It’s definitely worth your time, a very enjoyable film. But reign in your expectations it obviously wasn’t going be the greatest cinematic release because they all made that, it’s called Back to the Future.
[Edit: Also honestly, I wouldn’t be against seeing more space-age surgery in 3D.]
Just read that those photos were not of Iron Patriot but of the War-Machine armour branded. Phew.
If they had tried to crowbar in the Dark reign stuff but without Osborn it would’ve been a Spider-Man 3 level of train wreck.
I’m still a little nervous about the four (?) villains in the film, especially with the Extremis plot. But I still trust Shane Black to deliver something pretty incredible.
