Chick Flicks: What we do for Love

 So, I was at work and my Blog mentor(Dan is the man, This blog would not be here without him, Thanks) and I had talked about Chick flicks we watched for our girlfriends and in his case wife. We laughed that we liked some of them but never liked to admit it. So her I go to start a POST to get people(not just guys) to tell me what their top 3 chick flicks are. So I will start by listing three, now these are not my favorite but I would watch them without a fight.

 1. Some kind of wonderful: 1987, Eric Stoltz a grease monkey tomboy play played by  Mary Stuart Masterson  help Eric try to land Lea Thompson.  The story of a guy trying to have the perfect date was great.

2. Say Anything: 1989, High school senior Lloyd Dobler John Cusack wants nothing more than to go out with beautiful and intelligent Diane Court Ione Skye . Lloyd attempts to win her heart over the objections of her over-protective father John Mahoney before Diane leaves for a scholarship in England.
3. 50FirstDates: 2004, Henry Roth Adam Sandler, lives in a Hawaiian paradise with the company of endless women with no strings attached. This is until he meets Lucy Whitmore Drew Barrymore. Both Henry and Lucy enjoy the company of each other and feels the start of a serious relationship occurring. Approaching Lucy the next day, Henry is confused when Lucy fails to recognise him. This is the moment Henry discovers that Lucy actually suffers from short term memory loss and can't remember each individual day. Henry won't let this stop him and is prepared to make her fall in love with him all over again, each and every day.

          I hope to hear what you like please, comment.

Hades Breaching Drills

    So for my birthday I received two Hades Breaching Drills. They will fit nicely in my Imperial Guard army. They seem to be the mawloc of the guard.  When they deep strike onto the board  they drop a 5 inch template strengh 10 armour pen 1 (hotness from below). Then it can assault vehicles at str 10 melta. But it can only move 6 inches in the movement phase. It also can only tank shock troops. The gun is just a melta. The other cool factor is veterans jumping out the next turn with no chance for a mishap roll. If small terrain is in the way remove it. Need to take out a bunker, auto hits buildings in the assault.
    My plan is to field both of them with a Valkyrie and a Vendetta. I think,  I might  use Yarrick or a lord commissar and with a Vet squad x3 melta, vet squad  x3 plasma (to hold my objective), vet squad heavy flamer and flamer maybe a grenade launcher( maybe add Harker). Not sure with the rest of the army. I might add a tank or two. I would love input.

    If five guardsmen have to die to kill just one of the unclean, then the imperium will recruit 10 more to replace  them. Such is the way of purity: Lord General Garth  after the Zemo uprising.

Priest: After Thoughts

  I caught the midnight showing of Priest. I must say the reviews were a little hard but not to off. The background scenes were a little long and useless(it wasted time.). The Dialogue needed tweaking and refining. The plot was not bad at all.

  I felt it was worth a see, unlike the reviewers. The western feel was a good twist. But the sheriff was to get the teen girls to watch(sad, they could have found someone better.). I will also point out that futuristic fighting monks have been done better by Christan Bale in Equilibrium ( Gun priests were much cooler, but no vamps.).
   The vamps were a light sensitive race that had been on the planet since the beginning of history. They used spit/vomit to build hives cities. After the wars the vamps were put on reservations,( American Indian tie in). 
   Black Hat the villain needed a little work also he had the making of a good antagonist but fell a little flat. His best scene was when he is dancing during the the destruction  of a town and they cut it way to short.  They did make him uber tough and left him viable for a sequel so that could rock with a little tweaking.
  I am going to rent it again, I hope that people will give it a rent.  

V: Goes to the Red Dust

ABC announced that they killed V after the second season. I hope that they at least give it a tv movie.  Well I guess ABC will end it with the aliens on top and little hope of the humans making it through. Lets pray that Falling Skies will cover the aliens taking over the world gap V left. Rest in Peace V let the hope for a reboot in 5 -10 years.

Stargate Universe Over!?!?!

   Well it is over, and I am at a loss to give a good review. No one died as I had hoped. No one made it home( Not including  Col.Talferd a few shows back.). The final battle was lacking the punch needed to have people to even care to watch reruns. But, as I said in my earlier posts, they left room for a movie.
  The only thing I liked throughout the show was Eli. He was the constant that kept the show grounded. He is/was the most relatable person a geek could be. I will say I wish they would have had him use more geek quotes then he did in the series. I hate how they left him staring into space with doubts of him making it through(oh hook me to see how poor Eli makes out.).
   It looks that the Stargate saga as a whole has comes to an end. The community should mourn the loss of any long lasting franchise. Rest in Peace Universe and lets hope Eli makes it.

Priest: Pre viewing Thoughts

   I watched an interview with Karl Urban. He made the movie sound like it was a sci fi, western, vampire, and apocalypse mash up. The trailers are very interesting, underworld like.
   The storyline is about a slayer priest that goes out side the order to rescue his niece(I think), So he chases the vampire kidnappers, and runs from the order.
   Karl Urban's character is a priest turned vamp, so there should be a lot of close banter.  The preview of the train fight looked promising.

    Lets hope this will be well produced with a good script. The cast looks great, so it does already has one thing going for it.

     If you see it let me know?

Free Comic Book Day 2011

   I went to the local game store that hosted FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. I got at least twenty books free for the kids( OK a few of the adult content ones are for me.). The girls loved it and the oldest started reading at lunch. I think she finished 5 before I cut her off( That's great for a 7 year old). I love the idea of a store promoting reading by giving free swag to kids and patrons. I feel when a store gives this kind of support to their community, then you should show your support by shopping and send money their way. The shop owners pay to host these events. I do not know the cost but most shops in our area are run on a shoe string budget, so the investment in this type of promotion is a gamble on return. So I dropped 25+ on Green Stuff and Flock to give a little love.   
Hear is a shout out to:

   I went and watched Thor today with small hopes of entertainment. As I sat down in the seat wishing I was watching the Captain America Movie and praying I did not fall asleep ( I did work midnight), I was mildly surprised and entertained.
   The acting was OK,  Portman was a little flat. Shield seemed more like the Men in Black then what I would have liked. It had tons of effects. The story just did not draw me in or make me care. Thor's transformation from a god to a humble man didn't even get a montage, so it was a day or two then he evolves (but helped movies pace). Loki was good but not evil enough to make you feel like hes was a true mastermind. And don 't even get me started about the twirling hammer rock chucking or lack of action destroyer fight scenes (I thought it could have been longer).

   My 5 year old daughter loved it she sat through the two hours and wanted more. So there is an audience and I can't tell you I hated it but I didn't love it. If you don't like Thor this movie will not change your mind. you can easily skip it and would not loose anything seeing the avengers.

PS Hawkeye was in it but only aims his bow and says a few words. My girlfriend had to ask if i was even him. I say "cheap bad cameo."

Stargate Universe Ending

 So Stargate universe is coming to an end. I have watched the series from the being and have only kept with it as I have seen the first two series. I want to say that it was along time coming the show only had a few good episodes a season. The first season was a stinker and I as most people hoped it got better. But it didn't, with the stones in the story only there to try to make you care more about the people and falling flat.
  I hate to see any sci fi show to end but this only was overdue for a cut. I hope that this leads way to a new show. Maybe Alpha will pan out but I doubt it.
  So so long to the voyage of the Destiny and here is to the hope the last episode kills half the cast so there won't be TV movies.
