I have waited for a movie about them for quite some time. There have been brickfilms and Lego super hero movies, but this is the first proper Lego movie. Many of us grew up playing with Legos (and some of us still do), so it’s about time they made a movie about time they made a movie about our favorite brick-building toy!
Before I start this review of Pacific Rim let me give you a few disclaimers. First one, I love giant robots. Always have and always will love them! Disclaimer number two, Giant robots are awesome. Finally disclaimer number three, I love giant robots.
What do you do when aliens attack Earth from an undersea portal? You build giant robot to fight them of course. That is pretty much the storyline for Pacific Rim. Let’s be honest with each other, this is not the most ridiculous story line you have heard (it’s not some kid running around trying to get the girl with the help of giant robots from outer space after all). I won’t go too deep into the story, it’s a nice device to keep the movie moving but it’s not going to get any awards. The aliens that are attacking Earth are called Kaiju, the Japanese word for strange creature or monster. To fight the Kaiju, humans come together and build giant robot suits called Jaegers. Initially the battle with the Kaiju seems to favor the humans but the Kaiju are relentless and the human race is on the brink of destruction. All that is left now is a handful of Jaegers and humans are now building walls as a last ditch attempt protect themselves from the Kaiju. (Read more…)
Finding a job, it’s a tough world out there right now and finding a job you like is even harder. The Internship gives people a peak into the company Fortune magazine voted as the number one company to work for, Google. So what happens when the Wedding Crashers try to get a job at Google? You get The Internship.
The wolf pack is back in The Hangover Part III and ready to tie up some loose ends… especially since people have been begging for resolution. Ok, maybe there was no demand for another Hangover movie but how could you go wrong with another one? All one would need to do is follow the same formula as the first two movies: Alan and the crew wake up with a massive sized headache and then attempt to retrace their steps from the previous night. Boy was I wrong about that assumption. (Read more…)
When you hear the name Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg, the words box office hit probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Michael Bay did ruin my all time favorite childhood cartoon with the live-action atrocities featuring Shia LaBeouf (Transformers is about the robots! Not some kid running around trying to get the girl!). Mark Wahlberg has some good and some (or many) bad performances under his belt, after all who can forget Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch? Even with these two names associated with the movie, something about the trailer for Pain & Gain made me want to watch the movie. What did I think of Pain & Gain? Keep reading to find out!

When this anime first came out I didn’t really pay much attention to it since it didn’t sound all that great but now that I’ve watched it, I now suffer from a case of foot in mouth syndrome. Okay but first to give you an idea what this anime is about. Tachibabna Hibiki is to attend a concert with two idols Amou Kanade and Kazanari Tsubasa from Zwei Wings with her best friend Kohinata Miku but for family reasons can’t make it and leaves Hibiki to watch it alone. During the performance an explosion happens and everyone is under attack by these entities known as “The Noise”, (Read more…)
After months of waiting and a few delays, my Pebble watch has finally arrived! This was actually the 3rd KickStarter project I backed. I was lucky enough to be a very early backer because this project caught on like wildfire. The team’s goal was 100 thousand dollars and by the end of their campaign they raised over 10 million dollars. I never thought I’d ever fall in love with a watch but here we are. There are a few bugs and quirks of the watch, the team sent out an update today saying they are working on the fixes. Check out the video review of the pebble watch. There are even photos of the pebble press event that we attended at CES 2013.

A while back i posted about the Index Figma and now i can write a real review about her. Figma has always been known for there articulation and quality when making there figures this time they decided to take a new approach and add cloth to there figures. Up till now most of them have been made of ABS plastic so some figures couldn’t be made due to there clothing but with this Figma they made Index’s lower dress out of cloth allowing for full movement with her legs but i would still have liked it if her coat was also made with cloth too and maybe even her head wear.
Index doesn’t come with a lot of accessories but her cat Sphinx, prayer hands, knife and fork. Her head wear also gets in the way of her arms but it is removable and comes with another front head piece, and 2 other faces. Even with these limitations Index still proves to be a good Figma in the line up thus far but wish they would have given her rage face.
