Dark Knight Rises was a fitting end to the trilogy Christian Bale and Christopher Nolin began seven years ago. If you haven’t been following along since Batman Begins, you will miss parts of what’s going on, especially since there’s hints here and there of what lead up to events in Rises. All three movies actually come to a close with Rises.

A recent family vacation turned into an opportunity to see how well we can scramble to save money, when the destination presented us with a challenge. That challenge was surviving on a budget we already had figured, but ended up being more costly than we anticipated. This got me to thinking, and taking notes. What could we have done better, and what did we do right? From planning to booking, this is how things went for us. And worked. And will likely be a guide for us in the future, when we decide to go overseas. Keep in mind this is my opinion, and experience.

The Avengers – Review

I’m pretty sure that my small review here, is a drop in the bucket considering half the world has likely seen The Avengers by now. Having sold out in 1,800 theaters nation wide on Friday morning, for the first showing, and growing 18.5 million dollars in that short period, it will be no surprise to me, if it shatters records by Monday.

What we’ve lost

The other day a friend of mine at work and I were discussing my recent foray into this desire to cook pastrami from scratch. The discussion went from there into what he and I could, and couldn’t cook and the concession was most people are only able to cook from boxes or pre-made meals. Confirmed…

Will we ever see a Goonies 2? Prolly not. Will we see a reboot? I hope not. Because I seriously doubt Hollywood will do it justice. Does this movie belong in your collection? Absolutely. I hope movies like this gets handed down from parent to child as we get older, because there is a huge library of movies that deserve to be.

Six String Samurai was released in late 1998, to little or no fanfare. It bombed at the box offices. Despite only having a budget of $2.00 million, the movie only made $134,000 thousand by 1999. Not a lot of money. The size of the budget doesn’t matter since most this movie was filmed on location around Death Valley and other parts of California and Nevada.

But hell, if I had super money, I’d pour it into R&D too. Who wouldn’t want to run around the city at night, gliding above the cityscape, swooping down on would be criminals and hanging them up on streetlamps?

The Golden Age of Movies

In terms of story, plot and character development, I think this movie actually gives more, then the other two. This flick isn’t nearly as iconic as the others, but it gives more than mere images, it gives other movies that borrow from it heart.

Every kid had dreams about one day finding that mystical map in their back yard, telling their friends about it and heading out to seek fame and fortune.

Duke Nukem: Forever

The games biggest fault has got to be the load times. The levels are linier. There is enough to see and interact with and even hidden area’s within this, to make it seem larger. This is likely the reason for huge load times, the game loads the entire area your in, interactive devices and all, which I’m sure, causes the waiting screen to take FOREVER. Maybe that’s where it got the subtitle?
