p.s. I will announce the winners in a few days. If you have any suggestions for nomination, say so in a comment. Don't get angry at me if I haven't nominated anyone or any movie you like, it is due to the lack of seriousness, and lack of time. I simply don't watch all genres of movies, only these genres with a few exceptions. I don't get paid for watching movies, although I should. Maybe I should put a pay-pal donate button up.

p.p.s Happy New Year! (in 29 minutes)

Kill Hitler

Tom Cruise's new movie about a Nazi officer in the Third Reich that does not agree with Hitler's principles is definitely worth watching. It is suspenseful, thought provoking, and based on a true story. Cruise delivers a convincing and powerful performance as Colonel Von Stauffenberg, and the supporting actors are great, such as Bill Nighy. The Colonel joins a group of high-ranking German officers who plan to overthrow Hitler's regime after being injured in battle. See this movie if you like war movies, suspense movies, mysteries, etc. 9/10 stars.

p.s. Merry belated Christmas, and Happy New Year's Eve! (Unless you're in China, then you'll have to wait a month or two.)


Mac vs. PC

Here is a great vid about a Mac and a PC who transform and duke it out. Very well made,  and a funny take on the whole argument.

The Earth is still spinning...

Movies: I saw "The Day the Earth Stood Still", the remake of the 1951 movie, with Keanu Reeves. It was decent. Perhaps worth a DVD rental. There were some good special effects shots that were cool, but the story sucked. 

Klaatu (Reeves) is an alien sent by a group of extraterrestrial civiliztions to save Earth. A scientist (Jennifer Connelly)  who is recruited by the U.S. govt. to help understand the alien's arrival is pleased to hear this, until she finds out he is only here to save planet Earth, not its sentient inhabitants. In fact, he is here to destroy us. He says "your planet is one of the few in the cosmos that is capable of sustaining complex life" yet he wants to destroy the most complex life this planet sustains. Fail. It is pretty much a propaganda bit for global warming, like "The Happening", except a little better. Never see "The Happening". They run from trees (which don't move) and in the end it is insinuated that the whole Earth dies because we chop down too many trees, or drive too many SUVs. Shyamalayan's worst, by far. That's the end of my review rant.

p.s. This movie looks awesome:

uBUNTu badge...

...Is awarded for excellence in blogging. It is the beginning of the u-bunt-u blogging experiment,  and more specifically is awarded for exceptional dedication, creativity, or hilarity in the realm of video game blogging, although non-video game blogs may be able to recieve it as well.


Motivational Posters

And from the darkness of the blogosphere... comes Krakenkiller, with a picture of a motivational poster that failed. I'm sure that you will all understand the problem here (which I obviously fixed). By the way, the AC-130 is awesome. It has a 105mm cannon, a 40mm cannon, and a 32mm gatling gun. Remember death from above?

Ummm... So yeah

Hey, I know I haven't posted in a decade and a half, but I have been busy. BUSY. Anyway, I don't have much in the way of news or anything. Well, someone was born with two faces but I don't mean that kind of news. Anyway, if you don't have SSBB, get it, and if you don't have a Wii, find someone who does and steal it. I'm joking. If you seriously think I meant steal it, well, never mind. Also some good games you should try that are older, Marvel Ulimate Alliance, mainly if you're a fan, and KOTOR (the first one). Great game, play it soon. See ya later.


Hulk Smash...

Remember when I talked about the new HULK movie? Well, here's the trailer. Of course, snatched from youtube.

I still think I'm more looking forward to Iron Man and The Dark Knight.


Quick update...

TESLA ROADSTER (text post under images with links)

If you are a car fan, or even a tech geek, you should definitely check out the new Tesla Roadster at this link: http://www.autobloggreen.com/2008/01/28/abg-first-drive-hitting-the-road-in-the-tesla-roadster/
Also, learn about the namesake of this cool car here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_tesla
Nikola Tesla was essentially (and sadly) erased from the history books, but one like myself has done extensive research on many topics, although I do not claim to be an expert on anything myself, except maybe video games, but even there I am far outranked. Nikola Tesla essentially invented the radio, as much as if not more than Marconi, sold patents to Thomas Edison, which he most likely used to invent the lightbulb. Tesla also discovered technology that was bought out by private companies and is just now coming back into discovery and interest. So, please I implore you all to not just mindlessly eat and regurgitate what the media tells you, all the major media news companies are privately owned and surely do not have your or my best interest in mind, they only care about money, and will do anything to get it. All that to say, you gotta learn things for yourself. But when it all gets too stressful, I just kick back and kill some aliens or terrorists on 360. Next post won't be so heavy.


More of the same...

Well, I suppose it is time to celebrate. I have 5,000 hits now, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl is finally out! There are 33 characters to my knowledge, including previously thought left out ones like Capt. Falcon, Mr. Game and Watch, and Falco. There are the ones who have been a long time coming, like Diddy, Wario, Olimar, Pokemon trainer, etc. And then there are the ones which are unexpected (At least I didn't expect them), like ROB, most recently featured in Mario Kart DS, and Lucario (Idk, it's like a pokemon or something). Well, I hope to play it soon, but until then, I will occasionally check as I have been, at smashbros.com.

p.s. here is a new Iron Man preview, and a pic of the new Wolverine movie coming out May 1st, 2009.

Here's the Wolverine pic:



Today, I have some recommendations. First, games. If you have not played Halo 3, you obviously have been in a coma for the past 5 months. If you have not played Call of Duty 4, you have been seriously deprived, and if you haven't played Republic Commando, then you should requisition it at your nearest video entertainment dealing facility ASAP, soldier! Now, a good movie that you all have likely seen is I Am Legend. But, on the off chance that you haven't seen it, then do so. If you search youtube for mcdonald's rap, you will get a clever and funny video.* It is different than the one in my sidebar. Also, some good reading as far as recent books go, I am almost done with the Republic Commando series. It is a well-done book, but a more than common Star Wars knowledge is needed to understand it. At least see all 6 Star Wars movies and play Republic Commando through, that should do it. Anyway, see ya later. Happy surfing!

Man vs. Walmart

This video is a funny parody of Man vs. Wild. I've always wondered in that show if he is actually surviving out there, or if he has a camera crew out there with him. I mean, what if he died? They would have to show that, too. I wonder how much he gets paid. Probably quite a bit. And even more if he's actually alone out there.


Hold on to your hats...

Well, the preview doesn't look disappointing. What preview? This one.


far cry, iron man

Another game and movie update. Farcry 2 is coming out later this year, which should be cool. I've never played the first one, but I heard that it's pretty good. Also, here is another iron man preview, if you didn't see the superbowl.


Just the other day, in my back yard...

This post is mainly to say that Boba Fett is the coolest guy ever. That said, there is a new live action TV show that is supposed to start filming at the end of this year, following the CG clone wars cartoons. The show will feature Boba Fett as one of the central characters and will take place during the almost 20 year story gap between episodes 3 and 4. It is presumed that both Daniel Logan (young Boba from 2) and Temuera Morrison (Jango/Clones) will play him at different times in his life. George Lucas said this will be a darker, grittier view of Star Wars (paraphrase). If you're a big Star Wars fan, you probably already know this, and if you're not, then you probably don't care. Following this train of thought, one would wonder why I am posting about this. I would answer, "Because Boba Fett is cool." Anyway, I have one closing thought. Press button, receive bacon. Enjoy bacon.


Press this button...

Warning! Do not press this button if you are on a diet. Hi! I have been experimenting with different backgrounds, and haven't found one yet. I will upload one of my own creation soon, and see how it looks. P.S. Correction: the Wolverine movie is next year, I believe. Also, the SSBB game is delayed AGAIN!, this time to March 9. Next time, it'll be 2012! P.P.S. Click the picture to enlarge. No bacon will be received.



It's a little bit off, but I just can't contain the excitement. It's the 1st anniversary of the Twilighter Zone!!! Yes! In February of 2007, I began this site. Time really flies. I can't believe it's already been a year. Let's try and beat the annual hit record of about 4,000. In honor of this wonderous occasion, I will be making some cool changes. So, let the celebration begin!


Follow-up post

Here to answer a few more questions about the Lost video game. It will be for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. This preview should get you excited about it. Also, check the video bar for some new vids.


Pushing the Button

Word is there's a new video game coming out based on the TV show Lost. I don't know about you guys, but I've been waiting for this one a long time. It is called Lost: Via Domus, and you play as a survivor of Oceanic flight 815, called Elliot. The game is played through "episodes" which will feature 3rd person adventure action, and flashbacks of this new character. You will see characters from the show, and discover new mysteries. The game takes you through the events of seasons 1 and 2 from a new perspective. I believe it is coming in February. Also, the Force unleashed is slated to be released in April.



Hey everyone. Don't have much to say, but will soon. I saw National Treasure 2, it's pretty good. If youv'e seen the first one and liked it, then you will like this one. Don't forget about Indy 4, Iron Man, Wolverine, and a new Narnia movie all coming this year as well.
