Carrie Underwood "BlownAway" new album!

Carrie Underwood's new album "BlownAway" launches tomorrow, May 1, 2012. This is her fourth studio cd. My two favorite tracks off of the album so far are, BlownAway and See You Again.

Check out the video for her first single off BlownAway, titled Good Girl.


If You See Something, Say Something TDKR

I wonder if it's the bat does go with everything. 
I really enjoyed the TDK viral marketing, I had a Harvey Dent bumper sticker...maybe I've missed TDKR viral this it? Let me know.
gonna have to see where #TDKR07202012 brings me.
Dam all these awesome movies this summer!!!

Prometheus International Launch Trailer

This trailer has a few spoilers in it but I don't care! I will be seeing this opening day! This is what the blu ray medium was made for....

God of War Ascension has the MP

So GoW: A will have a multiplayer component....
I can only hope Santa Monica Studios uses a similar mechanic that was used in ME3 where the SP and MP work symbiotically to enhance the entire game experience instead of being two separate entities.
Personally I'm not really excited about this game. GoWIII was a satisfactory conclusion for the story Kratos.
And the fact that this game is a prequel does not bode well with me....

Hunger Games

I was able to watch The Hunger Games this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised. Based on the tweenage (sorry, 'Young Adult') novel of the same name, the main character is a teenager named Katniss who lives in the standard issue dystopian future. I won't even get into what this says about America's teenagers, that they all believe themselves to be living in an actual dystopia?

Give Obama another term and we'll get there, but for now, we're still tackling First World problems like finding designer jeans that fit.

Anyway, Katniss lives in a world in which the central province rules the outer thirteen colonies/provinces. These colonies rose up against the tyrannical central province years ago, but were defeated. As a celebration (and punishment) all the provinces must select and teenaged boy and girl to battle in the 'Hunger Games'. It's a televised, reality-show in which the teenaged contestants battle to the death.

I am so jaded a movie-goer that my reaction was: "Great -- so, 'The Running Man' with zits."

But I was wrong, the story was engaging, deadly serious and fun to watch. The acting was great as I found myself hoping some contestants would survive. Whereas 'The Running Man' was definitely tongue-in-cheek, 'Hunger Games' takes a somewhat more realistic and gritty approach. It was a long movie (over two hours) but moved along at such a nice clip that I didn't even register the time. It is saddled with teenage angstiness, but just barely. It cleverly takes the teenager's principal issue (everything from zits to clothing to social life is treated as a life-or-death situation) and makes it literally life-or-death.

Fringe S4 E84 Letters of Transit

Last nights episode really came out of left field, it gave us another glimpse at a possible future. And this one is only slightly better than the one we saw at the end of season 3.
The new intro really grabbed my attention, and I knew immediately that the show was about to explore a new facet of the Fringe Universe.
Honestly, this change of scenery is a very welcome one for me as I was growing weary of the Peter-Olivia love story. And the revelation in episode 80 "A Short Story About Love" left me feeling let down.
Last nights episode leaves me with hope that the Fringe team still has their work cut out and that we will see Walter, Peter, Olivia and the rest of the fringe team back for season 5!
I enjoyed the episode tremendously, Henry Ian Cusick (Agent Simon Foster) and Georgina Haig (Etta) were a perfect fit for future fringe agents. The episode balanced the serious nature of events of this possible future with some jems of hilarity, Walter Bishop, "these aren't the droids you're looking for"....."move along".
A few questions remain and those of you who haven't watched the episode can stop reading now, spoilers ahoy!
I got the impression this was a future from the alt universe as I spotted the fringe logo with the back to back F's in the beggining of the episode yet Nina Sharp is seen sympathizing with Etta...
And a huge WTF to seeing Belly in the Amber! I get the distinct impression this future is an effect caused by friend to all, David Robert Jones...

God of War Ascension teaser trailer

Here's the preliminary box art and teaser trailer for the next chapter in Kratos' story. I loved the first 2 games on the PS2, I felt obligated to play was good but I felt like I was doing the same old thing. I'm not really sure what to expect in GoW:A, does Kratos ascend past greek mythology? Does Santa Monica Studio's build the game around a MP experience ala CoD? I sure hope not! Seriously how can he still be pissed!?

Transformers Prime S2 E34 Nemesis Prime

I've been a fan of this new Transformers series since I discovered it mid way thru season 1, and one of the reasons is the great writing for the show. Saturday nights Transformers Prime was another great episode, Nemesis Prime pitted Optimus against Mech's doppelganger of Prime! Best line of the episode....  
Agent Fowler: "Army Rangers"
Silas: "Retired...clearly"
You should be watching this show!

The Chernobyl Diaries

Looks like Euro trip meets Paranormal Activity with a few rads of Hostel sprinkled in for good flavor. I recommend doing 2 shots of Absynthe before seeing this!

ME3 Resurgence DLC

Join the war for Earth in Mass Effect 3! Owners of Mass Effect 3 can download the first multiplayer expansion for no additional cost.  The Mass Effect 3 Resurgence Pack adds new unlockable content: deadly weapons, new consumables, and powerful characters for each class in multiplayer, including the Asari Justicar, Batarian, Geth, and Krogan Battlemaster.  Additionally, the Mass Effect 3 Resurgence Pack also includes 2 new maps, Firebase Condor and Firebase Hydra.  Download this pack on April 10th and take the battle online in the critically acclaimed Mass Effect 3 multiplayer experience.

Asari Justicar Adept
  • Asari are fierce, graceful warriors. They are incredibly powerful natural biotics. The asari excel at hit-and-run tactics that ruthlessly eliminate their opponents from the battlefield.
Krogan Battlemaster Vanguard
  •  Krogan Vanguards are a brutish specimen. These fully mature krogan might be old and slow, but their biotic charge ability makes up for it. Their heavy shields and ability in close makes them a menace on the battlefield.
Geth Infiltrator
  • Geth Infiltrators converge quickly on a target while remaining undetected. Their unique perception systems give Geth Infiltrators an unsurpassed understanding of the battlefield.
Geth Engineer
  • Geth Engineers are elite support specialists. Their unique perception systems give Geth Engineers an unsurpassed understanding of the battlefield.
Batarian Soldier & Sentinel
  • Batarians are large brawlers that use nets and spiked weapons to capture targets… or to bleed them dry on the battlefield. If an opponent gets too close, a Batarian bludgeons them with spiked armor and enforcement gauntlets.
• Firebase Condor – A warzone outpost located on one of Palaven’s moons, Firebase Condor represents a crucial asset in the defense of the Turian homeworld, providing the beleaguered turian fleet with a place to refuel and repair. Its loss could grant the Reapers unparalleled access to the Inner Council Theatre. 
• Firebase Hydra – Firebase Hydra is located in an old abandoned Quarian colony which humans took over when they originally settled the world of Ontarom. It has since been converted into a massive dam facility which powers the communications hub located at Firebase Dagger and the kinetic barrier which protects it. Without this critical power source, Systems Alliance communications within the entire theatre would go dark.

• Striker Assault Rifle – Krogan rifle with explosive rounds. Its rate of fire increases when the trigger is held.
Kishock Harpoon Gun – Deadly one-shot batarian weapon. Causes bleed-out or disruption of target.
• Geth Plasma SMG – Fully-automatic geth submachine gun. Its rate of fire increases when the trigger is held.

When is the Resurgence Pack available?
  • The Resurgence Pack is available on April 10th for Xbox 360 and PC worldwide. For PlayStation 3 owners the pack will be available on April 10th in North American and April 11th in Europe.

Transformers Prime: S2 E33 Crossfire

Last nights episode of Transformers Prime was yet another fantastic addition to this series, which is, in my opinion, is poised to be the best transformers series to date. TF Prime is eclipsing even my childhood memories of the G1 series, the writing team of Kurtzman and Orci prove week after week that the Transformers live action movies could've been amazing if Michael Bay wasn't involved. It's sad that an animated show based on a brand of toys has more intelligent and mature writing with superior character development and stories than the Bayformers shitfests.

I highly recommend any fan of the G1 series to check this show out, and if you you liked the Bayformers, watch Transformers Prime and discover how great the movies could've been. And for all of the fans who have lost faith that anything will ever compare to your childhood memories of G1 watch this series! The first season is out on DVD and Blu ray and is well worth the purchase!
