The Walking Dead S4 E11 Claimed recap

So Rick and Michonne try the cinnamon challenge at their new diggs, Michonne gets cheezy with Carl on a supply run, Rick tries to gets some rest but is rudely awoken by intruders! Someone call Antoine Dodson!

Glenn wakes up in the back of a strange truck with Tara....Maggie's gonna be pissed!
Glenn grows a pair and cold clocks WWE's Sheamus sorry....Abraham Ford.

OK so Glenn's been asleep in a troop transport vehicle probably going at aprox 55 MPH for 3 hours, how many miles does Glenn need to walk to get back to the cheese bus of the dead???
165 miles X the average walking speed of an adult human which is aprox 3 MPH = 495hrs!
Glenn, Tara, Abraham and the gang  are gonna pull a Summer School and show up on the final episode of TWD and everyone's gonna be like who da fuq???OOOOHHHHH YEEAH.
Oh and I'm calling Bravo Sierra on mullet man having the solution to the zombie apocalypse..
All in all a rather dull episode IMO

Check out the preview for next Sundays episode "Still"
If Daryl dies we revolt!!!

True Identity of Andy's Mom from Toy Story

Movie Review: 12 Years a Slave

I can count on one hand the number of movies I believe need to be shown in US high schools, 12 years a slave is one of them along with American History X.
This is what I was hoping Tarantino had done with D'Jango Unchained, not to say D'jango was a bad movie, it was good but I felt there were scenes in it that contradicted the serious nature of the subject. Where as 12 Years a Slave gave a much more honest, serious look at slavery in the United States.
This is a very powerful film that doesn't sugar coat the story, the cast is phenomenal from Chiwetel Eijiofor as Solomon Northup, to Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Paul Giamatti, and Alfre Woodard. I highly recommend seeing this film!

Our Robocop Remake

I saw Robocop in the theaters when I was 14 and for a 14 year old it was fuckin awesome the blood and gore was crazy....haven't seen it since and I really hate all these remakes/reimaginings what ever you wanna call them. So I won't be dropping $12 to see the remake...instead I'm watching Our Robocop Remake from the guys at Honest Trailers and the Screen Junkies fellas and many many more!
Watch it now for FREE!


Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy teaser trailer #1

For the record I'm diggin Rocket Raccoon!

The Walking Dead S4E45 Inmates Recap

Ya know how in Star Wars multiple events are happening at the same time Luke V Vader on DS, Han on Endor, Lando in the Falcon attacking the DS....well last nights episode felt a little like that. And the order is also scrambled so what we see Daryl and Beth doing actually came later than the events of Tyresse, Lizzy, and Mika
Daryl's all down in the dumps because Fortress Rickimus fell while he was the top dog on the counsel. And now he's stuck in the woods with "Oh Mah Gawd Diary" Beth.....personally if I were in Daryl's shoes I'd be like good luck with that tracking Beth, and then go hunt me some wabbit....cause we know they're out there.
Speaking of Wabbit, Bugs better stay in his hole when Lizzy comes around! So the burning question of baby ass kicker was finally answered and Tyresse saves the day! This was the most cringe worthy part of the episode for me....Tyresse = worst guardian angel in the zombie apocalypse! For instance in most horror flicks it's the white people that decide to go investigate a scary noise or blood curdling scream while the black guy usually does the smart thing and runs the opposite way....not Tyresse, he leaves a crying infant to two little girls, one happens to be a sociopath! Speaking of Lizzy.....worst baby sitter in the zombie apocalypse....she would not fare well on Angie's list....just sayin. Thank God Carol shows up....oooooh holy awkward moment Batman!
Next up is Maggie, Sasha and Bobby....first off I'm not a fan of Bobby, he just comes off as weird to me, Sasha seems to have gotten ris of her case of koxocknee fever and is determined to get the three of them back with the others but Maggie has a different agenda, find Glenn. And Bobby, well he's just along for the ride like Forest Gump it seems. So they find the bus and apparently everyone had a transfer for Zombieville...except Glenn! Where is that sickly pizza delivery boy!?
Why he's still at Fortress Rickimus!! Unlike Sasha he's still weak from koxocknee fever so he decides to take a nap until he spies a pic of Maggie and that's his motivation to keep going, he grabs his riot gear and some supples and runs head first into a crowd of zombies....I have a problem with this! This is not Glenn's style in S1 he was all Solid Snake style sneaking around avoiding the zombies, now he's charging head first into them...the vajayjay makes us do some crazy shit sometimes....
As Glenn breaks through he spots Tara in her own fortress of solitude, tells her straight up he's gonna use her to get back to his group, then passes out after fending off some walkers from the prison and Tara protects him. She is then confronted by 3 strangers Abraham Ford, Eugene Porter and Rosita Espinosa...I haven't read the graphic novels so I don't know a thing about these 3 which is fine.
And I'm hoping we get some fresh clues to the origin of the virus....I'm guessing it's either an airborn pathogen or milk.
Oh one last thing, point me in the direction of a place named Terminus and I'll do a 180 and take my chances!

Ultra Street Fighter IV New Stages

I watched a video from JAEPO on youtube today and got my first glimpse at one of the new stages for USFIV...
Not good I've had to use this gif twice in a weeks time!
Capcom, I lurves ya but this is......well....the gif says it all. This stage DOES NOT WORK IN STREET FIGHTER!

EDIT: Here are all the new stages being cut and paste from SFXT

I like the Mad Gear Hideout, Blast Furnace, Half Pipe and Pitstop 109 stages! 
Mad Gear Hideout obviously will be for Cody, Guy, Rolento, Hugo and Poison
Blast Furnace works perfectly for Zangief 
Half Pipe is great for Yun and Yang
Pitstop 109 would be ideal for Sodom....but alas he's not in USFIV. Maybe Capcom can add him in the background!
As far as Jurassic Era Research Facility and Cosmic I stated above THEY DON'T WORK WITHIN the Street Fighter (proper) universe at all.
If we're gonna be stuck with dinosaurs they should throw Regina in the stage
And Comic Elevator......last I checked the game is called Street Fighter, martial artist's travel all over the world to test their fighting skills against other fighters....Why are we in SPACE!!!!?????

The Walking Dead S4E44 After recap

Reunited and it feels so good...
Carl...if ya didn't hate him before last night you probably do now!
As much as I dislike the character Carl, Chandler Riggs did a great job portraying a young man coming of age and rebelling against his father. The venom Carl spat at Rick last night felt genuine and honest, seeing him walk ahead of his father as they fled the prison reminded me of myself at that age when walking with my mother.
The scene's with Carl roaming around the burbs, scavenging for supply's totally felt like the 6th chapter of The Last of Us, the Suburbs, where Joel, Ellie, Sam and Henry walk through a neighborhood with very similar houses.
Going into the second half of the season I was wondering what Michonne's motivation to keep going would be after Andrea's death, Hershell's death and the Governor death....but after last night I was glad to see she found her reason to live! I was happy to get a glimpse of her past also which gave the character a little more definition. Seeing her just blending in with that cluster of walkers was a great way of symbolizing how close she had come to becoming walking dead...metaphorically.
I think the one's who are able to let go of the past will survive, those who keep "looking back" will join the walking dead.
The scene where Rick "wakes up".....saw that coming a mile away. And there are days that's how I get out of bed!
Lastly someone get Danai Gurira and JJ Abrams in a room together! She would make one BADASS Sith!
Next week is the Beth and Daryl survivor show!

Sly Cooper Movie Trailer

I didn't see this coming, a Sly Cooper movie! I really enjoyed the games and this might actually work if it follows the Pixar formula for success, the kiddies will see cute fluffy animals running around doing silly things, gamers will go because it's a movie based on a game, adults will pay to bring the kids.
If the script is as well written as the games with witty banter that adults will find funny this could work!

Coloring Perception by BigMex

Back in February 2009 I wrote a blog post a day titled Memorable Black Characters In Video Games. My way of showing my appreciation for the month and for industry I've grown up with, it was actually a bit more difficult to find black video game characters that represented the values of Black History Month.
I've read a few of Big Mex's blog posts over on Capcom Unity and 1Up and this 18 part blog series was so amazing I couldn't stop reading it! Even if you're not a fan of fighting games I really recommend taking the time and reading this series! And if you are a member of the FGC this series will really be a gem of a read!


Movie Review: The Kings of Summer

The Kings of Summer totally flew under my radar when it first came out last year, this little gem totally reminds me of myself when I was that age. In fact almost every character reminds me of a friend I had back then! And we all have a Biaggio, and our neighborhood had one but he was Greek......fortunately he never got bit by a snake.
Like Joe I too built a house, mine was in a tree about 15 feet off the ground out of wood me and my friends found laying around at construction sites or the stuff the local hardware stores were discarding. Ours may not have been as awesome as Joe's with a slide and a port-a-potty door but ours had a roof and three walls with some "coming-of-age wallpaper we found laying in the woods....wink wink nudge nudge. We would play manhunt in the woods, acorn wars (surprisingly none of us lost an eye), and just hang out and talk about what ever. 
The Kings of Summer is a simple movie that captures the spirit of that time in a young boys life, that time between going to camp and getting your first summer job, the time when boys start seeing girls differently, the time when parent's start to become embarrassing
And for the record I would have to say, if I were to compare my mother to a Street Fighter character Blanca is a good choice but Kefka from FFVI would be better.
The Kings of Summer was a very simple, honest film that brought me back to a simpler time in my life, I think many guys will relate to this movie. And Nick Offerman who plays Joe's father had me laughing so hard I was crying....totally reminded me of my best friends father!
