My 2012 Movie Review


Yesterday my buddy and I decided to go and see 2012 in the cinema and I gotta let you know that it was one helluva ride. It was like riding a roller coaster without the roller coaster! In a word 2012 was Intense.

The start of the movie was a little slow but that's probably because I just wanted to see all of the destruction straight away. It was nicely setup giving the viewing audience an insight to the main and supported characters.

A lot of well known actors were in this feature film some of which you may not know the names of. Such actors that were apart of this epic movie are John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Danny Glover, Woody Harrelson, Oliver Platt, Thandie Newton, George Segal and John Billingsley.

2012 is a movie about the end of days, Armageddon if you will. The Mayan calender ends and The Planet Earth as we know it becomes unstable.

I give the movie 2012 a 10 out of 10 for being so Awesome!

49er's Annihilate The Rams!

The last few seasons of football I have not been very much into, I guess you can say that I didn't have the football bug, or maybe you can say that I did have the bug; The Bah Humbug! Basically it just wasn't doing a thing for me. I looked at my family and friends around me and they were very much into it.

Why did I feel that way? I guess it was because the team that I grew up rooting for had not been preforming well. I got tired of them always loosing, not by much, but somehow they fell apart in the 4th quarter and the other team was able to put more points up on the board.

This year however has been the opposite - I have been very much into this football season. It started off seeing how the San Francisco 49er's were playing, predicting who was going to win on Game Day....and putting money on it.

The 49er's have been playing well this season. I have been so proud of them. This is the best I have seen San Francisco play since the dynasty of the 80's and 90's. Go 9er's Go! Go 9er's Go!

If you missed the game watch it here:

“We’re moving forward,” Shaun Hill said. “By no means are we where we need to be. We have a lot of tough opponents ahead, but we’ll just keep grinding and work our tails off.”

My G.I Joe Movie Review

Last night I went to see 'G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobra' in the cinema after my friend would not stop talking about how much he wanted to watch this movie.

After ordering popcorn and a soda we found a place in the theater and sat down expecting to see an action packed movie...and it was. If you are looking for an action movie then this is for you! There's so much action in this movie that there is action within action!

The story line was pretty good, though I did not know what was happening in the beginning of the movie - There was just too many character's been introduced too fast with their story amidst the action.

The ideas were far fetched and at times it felt like I was watching some sort of parity of Star Wars especially during the battle under the ice.

All in all 'G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobra' was an entertaining movie filled with action sequences, computer graphics, and Love Interests. I would only recommend this if you are an action freak.

I give this G.I Joe movie a 6 out of 10.

Worst Fishing Day Ever?

Yesterday at seven o'clock in the morning I joined Ian "Still Green" and my brother on a Tuna fishing excursion to Andros. It took us about an hours time to reach our destination. Andros Island, which is located to the left of New Providence Island, is the largest island in The Bahamas.

Thanks for that little information. Great!

Anyway, after reaching our destination we rigged up and dropped our lines. After waiting for a while the line is taken and we fight to bring in the fish. We notice that it's a shark - Great; nice way to start it off. We cut the line and drop new ones again. Nothing bites. "Where are the fishes?"

"Time for a beer" suggested my brother.
"Yeah!" I replied,"What time is it? It doesn't matter, cause it's beer thirty!"

We cracked our beers, said "cheers" and realized that the rest of the day might remain fish less. After remaining out in Andros and catch-and-releasing five sharks and four barracuda, we decided that enough was enough so we headed back to Nassau, New Providence.

After cruising through Nassau Harbour, we cut around to Paradise Island, anchored, and jumped into the cool inviting aquamarine waters. It was a welcomed and most deserved reward for our hard work in the blistering heat.

Worst day fishing? I don't know. It could have been a hell of a lot worse. Trust me! All in all it was a good day out, we just had a very unlucky day fishing.

"Next shark I catch - I making Shark Fin Soup!"

'Funny People' not so funny

Over the weekend an idea was suggested to go to the theater to watch the movie Funny People starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen. We expected that the movie would be funny because of the starring roles and because the title of the movie "Funny People" suggests this. However this was not the case.

Funny People was the most depressing movie I've watched in years! Who thinks of this stuff?! Was it a trick to lure us into the movie theater with the hopes of a nice funny movie to relax to just so you can grab our heart, squeeze and twist it with emotions of empathy and sympathy?

I was, we all were mislead about this movie. The previews and the title speak This is a Funny comedy, but it never came close to that! Funny People is not a comedy. It is a drama with funny parts. Nothing more, nothing less.

Who should watch this? If you would like to watch a depressing movie, then this is for you. If you want to see a man get ill and hate the world, watch this movie. If you want to ponder endlessly about your own life and the shit that has happened to you, then this movie is perfect!

Otherwise, don't bother to watching Funny People. You're not missing anything, and if you did manage to watch it you'll have to quickly forget about it or you'll be lost in a dark dark room filled with your sins and the demons of a thousand torchered souls.

Take my advise, look over this one.

I give Funny People a 4 out of 10.

Worst Year Ever!

Who is having the Worst Year Ever? Celebrities that's who. "Why?" Doesn't it seem that every other day you hear about another death in Hollywood? Aren't these names of people you have heard about before? There have been famous people that I looked up to that have previously passed away, like John Ritter, but nothing when so many died in a short period.

Below are some of the names that stuck out for me:

Bea Arthur (May 13, 1922 – April 25, 2009)
Dom DeLuise (August 1, 1933 – May 4, 2009)
David Carradine (December 8, 1936 – June 3, 2009)
Ed McMahon (March 6, 1923 – June 23, 2009)
Farrah Fawcett (February 2nd 1947 – June 25th 2009)
Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)
Billy Mays (July 20th 1958 - 28th June 2009)
Karl Malden (March 22, 1912 – July 1, 2009)

It's Hot, Hot, Hot!

A record was almost made today when the temperature in Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport hit 101 degrees for 30 seconds. In order for the temperature to be recorded it has to be constant for at least 1 minute. If it remained 101 degrees for 30 seconds more that would have made the history books!

Look here at the info the National Weather Service provides.
