Cloud Atlas

You will either walk out of seeing Cloud Atlas loving it or you will walk out hating it. I thought Cloud Atlas was a great movie if you knew what you were going to be seeing. It is a tale of human connection through the ages. How our souls can be impacted by the actions of others. A single act of kindness can change everything. A story of love, sacrifice, and humanity. It is probably a larger scale story than most viewers are used to. The story reveals itself as we follow connected souls through various incarnations and time lines...

Wet

I just finished the video game Wet for the Xbox 360. Wet is an acrobatic action adventure game from Bethesda Softworks. It includes gameplay that we have seen in other games, but I think Wet is the first game to bring all of these elements together in one game. You get the acrobatics and free running bits from Prince of Persia. You get the lock on gun play from Stranglehold. Then they toss in some great swordplay. You play as Rubi, a wet works specialist who is a lean mean killing machine. Rubi is voiced by Eliza Dushku who fits...

Star Wars The Force Unleashed

I made my way through Star Wars The Force Unleashed for the Xbox 360 the other day. I never got around to finishing it due to several glitches I encountered in my first few run troughs. I made a fresh start this time around and it took me 7 hours off and on to get through the game. It felt a little short while playing and that does seem a bit short for something some people paid like $50 for. The story was OK, it felt like the story could have been anything. They did a decent job of setting...

Mass Effect 2

I finally got around to playing Mass Effect 2 and must say it is a great game. It is one of the few games in recent years that anally kept me playing until the end. I love it when s game mixes a great story with great game play. The graphics in the original Mass Effect were pretty good and the graphics in the sequel are amazing. Loading times are not all that bad and speed up significantly if you unseal the disc on to your Xbox 360. The environments were very detailed and really made the locations that you...

Avatar

Went to see Avatar this afternoon, and it was great, probably the best movie I have seen in a while. Despite all the hype I went into this movie with no expectations, I just wanted to see a movie. Saw it in 3d and enjoyed that as well. This was my first modern 3d movie. I like how they didn’t go overboard with the ooo look you can touch it 3d effects, the 3d was used more for layering the scenes. The plot of the movie as most of you know is the humans visiting an alien world and trying...
