Catch .44



This movie sucks, simple as that. If I had bought it, rather than rented it, I would have gotten a refund. If I had found it in the trash, I would have returned it to the trash. This movie starts with Bruce Willis saying that he did not trust the person from the point of view of the camera. Then three girls are talking at a table in a diner. After some strange chit-chat (and not to little swearing like sailors) they pull out guns and start shooting. After the scene is replayed several times within the first 40 minutes, two of the girls are dead, and all of the other people in the diner join them.
Someone who has killed the sheriff and dressed in his clothes, and some rube with a shotgun join the melee. That's as far as I got. This movie got really stupid, really fast.
Now normally I like Bruce Willis movies, Die Hard, The Whole 9 Yards, Surrogates, RED, etc, but this was NOT a good movie. It lasts 90 minutes, and I'll bet that the average viewer can last about 40, 45 possibly 60 at most. Hell, I'd even bet that the reason the Wikipedia page for Catch .44 is a stub is because no one took the time to watch the whole thing!
Also, I'm pretty sure this broke Scar Face's record for most expletives in a movie within the first few minutes. This movie is NOT recommended

concerning the Xbox 720....

While I was browsing the internet, I stumbled upon this interesting image:



The Nintendo 64 controller started the meme/stereotype that gamers have three hands. This might start one that gamers have at least four. from what I can tell, this controller is modeled after the controller from the original Xbox has four or more joysticks, and two start buttons, along with eight face buttons, and numerous buttons of unknown function. Among the Xbox 720 designs I have seen this seems to be one of the more insane ones. Bellow is one that looks like a PC with Xbox printed on it:

Here's one that appear portable, but seems too big to use without a table:

These two appear to be modeled after some of the lesser known indy consoles:


This one just appears to be type-writer (if you don't know what that is, google it) keys stacked onto a hunk of plastic and metal and circuitry:
This particular model appears to do away with joysticks, and face buttons in favor of a touchscreen, arrow keys and a home key that may or may not be a personalized gamer key used to access the save game data.


The following appear to be Xbox 720s modeled after the original Xbox.


Tese appear to follow the same independence day-ish spaceship style.


This one appear to be a giant Xbox ball with legs:
This one appears to be a giant clear helmet with banks after banks of capacitors inside it with green lights at the sides

A few other pics:




I could probably do a whole SERIES of articles filled solely with the content of rumors of the eighth generation of videogame consoles, but seeing as Nintendo has already put out their eighth gen handheld, and are about to come out with their new home based console, the Wii U. and Sony is coming out with their eighth gen portable, the PS Vita, that leaves us with six questions: What will be the name of the next gen Xbox? Will Microsoft make the full version of Xbox LIVE free? Will Microsoft come out with an eighth gen (or ever, for that matter) handheld? What will the eighth generation Xbox hold in store? What will Sony do for their eighth gen home console? Will Sony and Microsoft come out with eighth gen consoles period? One thing is almost certain; that the final version of the eighth generation Xbox and PS4 won't be anything like what is being traded about on discussion boards and blogs. Well, until next time, Adios amigo!

a review of WOW BUTTER and peter pan peanut butter





You know, they advertise wow butter as tasting just like peanut butter. I tried it several years ago when it was labeled as "WOW! Tastes Just Like Peanut Butter!" and once  again today. It tasted nothing like peanut butter then and it tastes nothing like peanut butter NOW. They should be sued for false advertising. all it tastes like is plain, ordinary, purely repulsive, makes me want to throw up SOY BUTTER! if you hate soy butter, don't buy this, if you don't like peanut butter, try almond butter. If you are allergic to nuts, and hate soy butter, I have no solution for you as of yet. this stuff makes my gag-reflex work overtime. It tastes terrible, no question.


On the other hand:



This stuff tastes great! It is one of the few peanut butters that actually taste like peanuts! That might be due to the fact that it is one of the few peanut butters to not contain high-fructose corn syrup. It also comes in nice, handy 6lb bulk canisters. It costs less than the store brand would if you bought it all at once (last time i checked it did) it also stays creamy, and does not gel up. Quite odd, considering how poor most of the store-bought peanut-butter's have tasted compared to what I usually eat.

a review of Bones:

as of this review, i am going to be more mixed up about the reviews. i will not stick to one network, or night for my reviews, i will merely make reviews about whatever i can think of at the time:



                                                            Bones


Bones is a mystery drama series that airs new episodes on FOX Thursdays, and syndicated episodes on USA, and on My Network TV on Sundays. it stars Emily Deschanel as the title charecter: Temperance "Bones" Brennan, and David Boreanaz as Special Agent Seely Booth her partner, love interest, and possible eventual husband, as well as the father of her child. it is in it's seventh Season, and has only gotten better with age. they first got together after a serial-killer named Jacob Broadsky killed one of their own (an intern named Vincent Nigel-Murray [portrayed by Ryan Cartwright]) in the second to last episode of the sixth season, they captured Broadsky, and i assume they put him in prison. they found out she was pregnant at the end of the sixth season. all i have to say about this is i hope they keep this up, and do not ret-con this season in a dream or otherwise. i was wrong about the last post. the big bang theory is not my favorite show, it's my second, Bones is my favorite show on TV. sorry it took so long for me to post this. the new intern is very annoying. i said that after i saw his picture on a promo for the seventh season. and they killed Nigel-Murray after i had just started to like is character. signing off now, see you tomorrow.
