We’ve just received our first subscription box from Loot Crate. Want to see what’s inside? Head after the jump for a complete breakdown of January’s “Rewind” theme.
These days, most of my work is done on tablets and smartphones, but I still get a lot of use out of an old 13-inch MacBook I purchased in 2010. The problem was the hard drive was dying—which had me thinking it might be time to upgrade to a faster, slimmer model.
Fortunately, I was approached to review the new 512GB Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD before I could pull the trigger on that purchase. Now I’m thinking that a new MacBook can wait because my old one has been completely transformed.
If you haven’t seen the movie, there be spoilers in this video so bookmark this page and come back later! Otherwise, take a few minutes to watch as the guys from Red Letter Media hilariously destroy Prometheus. One guy rattles off every stupid move and plot hole in the film while the other just sits there, apparently stunned by just how many things didn’t make sense.
See this video and their full review after jump (NSFW language)…
Welcome to the 74th Hunger Games.
Who else is ready to see the games on screen in just over a week? The Hunger Games trilogy captured my heart from the first few chapters, and I’m not alone. The series about a futuristic, dystopian society where the government pits its children against each other in a brutal battle to the death grabbed millions of readers. The heroine of the story, Katniss Everdeen, wormed her way inside our heads. The story begs to be examined, and The Girl Who Was on Fire: Hunger Games Anthology provides pages and pages of just that treatment.
I previously mentioned that I got the DVD of the 15th anniversary of the Neverwhere miniseries that aired on BBC. I’ve gotten some interesting comments from some of you folks and, I’ll be honest, some of you guys don’t remember it too fondly.
But I’m gonna give you my thoughts and maybe it’ll change your mind and encourage you to give it another look.
Book #13 of the Dresen Files entitled Ghost Story has just hit the shelves. If you’ve read all of the books in the series so far, see if Butcher’s latest effort is up to snuff after the break. If you are unfamiliar with the world’s one-and-only wizard P.I., we’ll explain why you’ll need to clear your reading schedule and get caught up.
I did what any red-blooded American did over our holiday weekend. That’s right, I went to see a movie. This was after consuming roughly my own body weight in hamburgers and hot dogs while hanging out with friends all afternoon. I almost didn’t go to see Transformers: Dark of the Moon because it was getting a love it/hate it response from people and I was desperately afraid I’d fall into the hate it camp. There’s nothing as disappointing as walking in to a movie thinking it will be fantastic, but wandering out a few hours later wishing you could get a refund. [Minor spoilers ahead]
