All About Xanatos11
20Oct 07Well I sure have been AWOL for a while havent' I? Updates are coming soon.
So as anyone who knows me knows, Im a huge film buff. My favs are Star Wars, James Bond and some older single films (Forbidden Planet, The Great Escape, etc). So I always get excited with new movies. Even though the sales are dwindling and pale in comparioson to games I still love them and I love going to see them in a theater. Lately Ive been having a big james Bond rush, those films have always been some of my favorites my whole life and it actually affect my family (my uncle, Mrc Wolff, has been the principal aerial cooridinator and helicopter pilot for them since The Spy Who Loved Me. You know that scene in Tomorrow Never Dies with the helicopter chasing them through that city, yup, my uncle). lately Ive been having a HUGE renewed love for the series. I got all four collectors boxes and Ive seen Casino Royale twice, plus I listen to the soundtrack constantly.
I was actually very satisified with Casino Royale. Die Another Day was a dud to me, and it really made me like Peirce Brosnan a little less. His stuff was getting dry and he was getting too old for the role. But the Daniel Craig came along and I was all like "Heck no! The dudes got blond hair 'n all. I cant accept this". Well guess what past me. BURN IN HELL! Daniel Craig is perfect for the role, and Im certain he's going to be well recieved and well liked for the next two (or more) that he's going to do. He is almost exactly what Ian Fleming decribed in his original books. Plus he adds his own flare and personality. lets just hope that the writing of the series takes his James Bond in the right direction.
But other than James Bond, I have three words: "Mother ****ing Transformers!". Ok, I did not watch much transformers when it was on but Ive always been amused by it, and I am a huge fan of its original inspiration. Macross (Robotech in the US) is really something special to me, so Transformers inherited part of thet henshin admoration. So that fact that theres a movie coming out, sweet. The fact that the movie looks GOOD (and just flat out beautiful by the way) is incredible. Watch the new trailer if you havent seen it already to see what I mean.
Its just soo cool. i cant wait for this movie!
It feels good.
I got myself another Swap Magic Card so I can return to my (ok theyre pretty crappy most of the time) Gundam games. its really a shame they dont regionalize many gundam games for America, because there some actually pretty good ones in Japan. Namco/Bandai has this bad habit of only bring the bad Gundam games to America. One of the games, Gundam Battle Royale for PSP is actually my favorite PSP game. Amazing graphics, huge suit roster and fun gameplay.
In order to get back into the swing of good Japanese games I ordered Gundam U.C. Climax. Narutimate Hero 3 and Gundam Seed Destiny: Federation vs ZAFT II Plus (which actually just came out yesterday or something). Hopefully Ill get some fun out of those, all while enjoying my Wii and 360 aswell. Its good to have options. So in the end, I blame Jeff Gerstman. His MASSIVE game library has convinced me to do the same and waste my life away like him. But I didnt just say that, cuz he's actually pretty cool.
