Oscar Snubs–Harry Potter

So I watched the Oscars the other day and while it wasn’t as boring as I really expected considering I figured I’d seen a grand total of 3 movies that were nominated (Transformers 3, Rango and Potter), I do have to say this is crap.

Has there ever been a series that went 8 movies long? OK, Bond and Land Before Time, has there ever been a film series 8 movies long that told a complete story with the same cast sticking through w/o pulling any contract renegotiation bullshit and was you know, good?

Not that I can think of. And the wonderful people at How It Should Have Ended has answered the question of what Harry Potter and the gang are feeling….

Playstation VITA

I’d been planning on getting a VITA when it comes out in a few weeks, however those plans were put on hold last month when my center’s closure was announced and I’d be laid off. So I was a sad panda…

This past Monday however I had  a shiny new import VITA sitting on my porch along with Uncharted and an 8GB memory card. I’d won a raffle from cheapassgamer after a donation to the Child’s Play fundraiser awhile ago. Yay!

Movie Quickviews

I thought I’d make a few comments on some recent movies I’ve seen. Not reviews per se…

Super 8 – Boring, catch ET instead.

The Smurfs – Not as bad as you’d think.

Horrible Bosses – Pretty good though a bit darker than I expected. You go into these movies expecting wacky hijinks and life lessons to be learned, instead we get actual murder.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides – Yawn. I think we’re done here.

Bad Teacher – They accidently had a funny part when she’s grading papers. Otherwise movie is dull and boring. I’m also unsure if we’re supposing to be actually rooting for Diaz’s character. It’s not that she’s a teacher with a few vices, she’s a repugnant human being with no redeeming qualities at all.

Tucker & Dale vs Evil – Catch the red ban trailer, all the good parts are there.

I caught a few older movies as well recently:

The Hunt for Red October – Still awesome.

Air Force One – Another one that holds up quite well, logic leaps aside. Glenn Close really should’ve signed the paper.

I’m Still Here

Rants, depressed musings and reviews incoming. I swear.
