Over the last few months I’ve had the pleasure of using Pure Digital’s fantastic little video cameras on multiple occasions. I had a tester unit early in the year that I used to cover the MuchMusic Video Awards. I then bought a camera through Dell to cover the Toronto International Film Festival in September. And I’ve shot stuff just for fun, just because I could.
It’s a little depressing to me, but this year’s batch of Heroes are turning out to be duds of lamely epic proportions. Even the so called “Villains,” which are the focus of this chapter in the story, seem to be coming up a bit short on the incredo-meter. They’re like caricatures of bad guys that my friends and I made up on the grade five recesses. If it wasn’t for Zachary Quinto as Sylar, this third, depressing season wouldn’t even be worth talking about.
While I play movie catchup, watching a bunch of movies (like The Godfather) that I have never seen before, I’m also having a hard time finding time to play all of the games I want to check out.
The oldest game currently on my to do list happens to be Bioshock, which is pretty damn awesome. That’s followed by the polar opposite, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga which I suspect will be a bit more of a casual playthrough.
Rounding up the news this weekend and the focus is all about television, oh yeah, and aging singers who like bathrooms.
As Apple continues to drive their “Mac vs. PC” campaign into the ground, Microsoft has stepped up (finally) with an ad campaign that I think says quite a bit.
In the ad campaign, famous and not-so-famous PC users introduce themselves (“I’m a PC and I wear glasses,” Bill Gates proclaims) following an introduction from a Microsoft employee who looks remarkably like actor John Hodgman, who plays PC in the Mac ads. “Hello, I’m a PC and I’ve been made into a stereotype.”
Some company has been plastering Toronto with ads featuring the earth-shattering, highly compelling intro “er” and the edge of a letter. So far, it’s anyone’s guess which company is behind…
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
Let this stand as a great example of a film where my better judgement eluded me. As a long-time fan of Chris Carter‘s X-Files, I had huge hopes for the new film. Huge.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed some grim truth to video game fans today: there is going to be a movie based on the hit Xbox 360 game, Gears of War and friends, I’m betting it’s going to blow Locust chunks all over the place. And not in a good way.
Last weekend, Aisha and I spent a night at the Delta Grandview in Huntsville, and I was more than a little surprised that it turned out to be a bit of a disappointment.
Methinks the people most delighted to see a Toronto Transit Commission strike, which was just announced 30 minutes ago, is Citytv. Seriously, the news has only been on since 11:00 PM and they have announced the breaking news 4 or 5 times already.
