Finally on the Bandwagon: Fringe
After putting my intentions of watching Fringe to the side with the usual, “Egh, I’ll watch it eventually.” Well that turned into two full seasons missed. No longer the case as I have officially finished Episode 1 of Season 1. Even prior to the conclusion of this episode and only about 5 minutes into the show, I was already digging this new show. I said the same thing at the episode’s conclusion as I did in the first 5 minutes of the show, and that is, “Wow!”
With the near conclusion of Lost I can only thank my lucky stars for finally giving this show a shot as I intended so long ago. Truly, and only judging after only watching one episode, I think it is safe to say that this show is a gem and listed in that rare list of good television. Not surprisingly, J.J. Abrams name is attached to the show which only heightened my excitement.
Of course, watching this show was very reminiscent of watching Chris Carter’s X-Files, only this seems to be much better and action packed, not to mention greatly written.
The only I that I can ask myself is, what the hell took me so long to jump on this wagon!? I’ll try and figure that out some other time. Right now, on to episode 2!
Valentine’s Day Review!
So I had a chance to watch the new Valentine’s Day chick-flick, not because I wanted too, rather, because my wife has been dying to watch this since it was released in the theaters. Naturally, it was the one chick-flick movie I adamantly refused to watch, well, because I had a distinct feeling that it was going to be a doozy. I was right.
The entire film takes place on, yes you guessed it, Valentine’s Day! It follows the entwining stories of… there are so many characters in this film that I lost count. If you are into sappy films and just love hearing the phrase “Happy Valentine’s Day!” more than 80 times, then you should see this movie, although, I’ll be honest, I had no idea as to what the basic premise of this movie. It goes from one couple to the next, one single to the next, and like usual Hollywood fanfare, the end result would be the same, happiness!
Of course, there were moments that were “true-to-life” where not everything is honky-dory! But, being that this movie took place in one day, i really find it hard to believe that some of the more serious issues that were portrayed in the film would be solved in a matter of hours! No, too “fantastic” and unbelievable! Also, it was pretty predictable as this is the type of “sappy” movie that all has already seen and it has become all too familiar. I was shouting about what would happen next and, unsurprisingly, it would soon unfold. Of course, my wife was far from flattered.
I’m the first to admit that the romantic-comedy/chick-flick is not my favorite genre, but I don’t mind watching one from time to time. There are some that even surprise me and I am mildly entertained. Valentine’s Day, however, failed… miserably. I say skip this one and if you really want to watch it, wait until it comes out on cable, or even TBS/TNT where they’ll most likely have a marathon of the same movie all day for your viewing pleasure. Oh, and make sure you are extremely bored before venturing out and watching this movie. Sorry, but an all-star cast couldn’t save this one.
Scream 4 Teaser Poster!
Looks like a release date of April 15, 2011. Poster is fairly simple and to the point. Still, gives me goosebumps (from excitement, that is).
Scream 4… and 5… and 6!!
Just got a tweet from Mr. Wes Craven himself (I hope) that Kevin Williamson, who revitalized the “horror” genre with the original Scream (as well as their sequels), is on board for Scream, 4,5 and 6! If you’re a fan of the franchise this is good news, if you’re not, then too bad!
