Tom Cruise, you’re my hero

Mr. Tom Cruise himself is in town, and as of right now these pictures from MuchMusic are the closest I’m going to get to him.

I don’t have a man crush on him or anything (that’s reserved for Ryan Reynolds only. Sorry, Tom), but let me just say it: it’s Tom F’ing Cruise. Top Gun, Minority Report, Mission: Impossible. Cocktail for God’s sake. And he’s married to Katie Holmes.

Heroes: A villain-ous downfall

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.

Fall gaming gets serious: bring on ‘Fable II’

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.

I’m a PC

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.”
