Movie blogging: The Hangover

My wife and I went out with her sister and cousin to see The Hangover and we all had a good time. I wasn't sure what to expect after seeing the previews for it but it seemed like it would be a funny movie and it sure was. I suggest going with friends to see it as you'll be laughing throughout the movie. It is an adult kind of film and not suitable for any youngsters.

Here's one of the trailers for the movie if you haven't seen the previews yet.

2012, a new end of the world movie

There have been many movies where they had "end of the world" scenarios and some were good and others were bad. There is a new one coming out in November named 2012. There is a page on Yahoo that goes into details about the whole 2012 thing which I'm not going to take time and explain here. I included the trailer below and the effects look really good, check it out.

Movie blogging: Land of the Lost

Last Sunday my wife and I went to go see the Land of the Lost movie. We both watched the old Land of the Lost television show as youngsters so we both wanted to see this movie. Plus Will Ferrell is in it and we both like his other movies and days at Saturday Night Live. The movie did start out slow but it picked up and we both enjoyed it. I recommend seeing it if you were a fan of the show and/or like comedy with Ferrell. The parts with the T-Rex are probably some of the funniest parts in the movie. I looked on YouTube and there are some videos uploaded by users with the old and the older Land of the Lost television episodes, so if you want to see those shows check out YouTube.

Movie blogging: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

I recently saw the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie, which I previously blogged about before with this video trailer, and have to say that I liked it but I think I was expecting more but it was still good. I grew up watching the X-Men cartoon that was on Saturday mornings and Wolverine became my favorite X-Men as he is to many other X-Men fans as well. During the movie, I enjoyed the action scenes and the story was pretty good. The only part that I thought was weird is that they made Wolverine and Sabretooth half-brothers in the movie, but I don't think they were in the comic book (let me know if I'm wrong as I haven't read that many X-Men or Wolverine comic books). Also after watching the movie, I searched online about this, and I didn't know that Wolverine was born with retractable bone claws which the movie shows a very young Wolverine who uses his claws for the first time. I thought he got the claws in the Weapon X program but I was wrong. After the Weapon X program his claws become more dangerous as his whole skeleton was bonded to the indestructible element adamantium. You can read the bio of Wolverine on this Marvel Wolverine page. I wonder if they'll be making a second Wolverine movie as at the very end they show Wolverine in a Japanese restaurant or bar having a drink. I recommend seeing this movie, especially if you like the X-Men and even if you like a good action movie check this one out.

If you've seen the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie let me know what you thought about it.

Prototype game looks like a lot of action

I watched a few videos on GameSpot.com about the new game Prototype that has been released and it looks like a lot of action. The game is mature as it has lots of violence, blood, and language not suitable for kids. Anyone that is into action games with a story line will probably want to get this one. Check out the two videos I included below, as they give you a pretty good sense as to what the game and story is about. Warning that the videos contain violence. If you bought the game already and have played it let us know how good the story and gameplay are in the game.

G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra trailer

Another movie I'm excited about coming out later this year (August 7th to be exact) is G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra. I posted a trailer I found on YouTube before, and I found another trailer with more previews from the movie. This movie looks good as well and with lots of action.

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen trailer

Here's another trailer of the new Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen movie that will be coming out in theaters later this month. It looks good and I'm hoping to see it in theaters if we have time. If you haven't seen the first trailer check it out.
