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?
