The perils of the Hype Train…

The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Netflix Picks of the Week (5-9-2011)

Nick: Collapse - Michael Ruppert is an investigative journalist and government whistleblower who sees the pending collapse of our modern civilization, not from a Mayan predicated hullabaloo, but from the fundamental tenets holding our global society together. His argument revolves around oil and how all of the solutions that we can devise will never replace the role of oil in, beyond gasoline, farming and the manufacturing of paint, plastic, and toothbrushes. Though the doomsday he predicts is exaggerated for effect, society will ultimately find that the derivatives trading of the financial market will create such a bubble and the price of oil will one day be so expensive due to limited supply that both will force us to change the way our civilization works or die. I believe that this change will be the "judgment" over the course of this century



Josh: Up - This was the last remaining Pixar movie that I wanted to see but missed the first time around (Cars, you can go drive off a cliff for all I care). The best thing about Up is the opening credits, in which we see a montage of the crotchety old protagonist's life unfold with his soulmate, from their young marriage to her eventual death. We see the joyful moments, the funny moments, and the terribly depressing ones, all wrapped up in a couple minutes, and with no dialogue whatsoever. Just a beautiful musical track to go with a beautiful, wordless tale. The rest of the movie isn't fantastic by Pixar standards, which still makes it pretty damn good by regular standards, but it's worth seeing Up for the opening montage alone.




Blake: The Wizard - This 80's flick classic introduced an entire generation to not only the Power Glove but gave many a first glimpse at Super Mario Brothers 3.  Fred Savage takes his autistic brother who just happens to be a "wizard" at video games on the road trip of a lifetime. They make their way across the country conning people out of cash. You can almost think of it as Rain Man for kids without the whole Sean Penn dying at the end thing. If you consider yourself a true hardcore gamer nerd, you've kind of got to watch this or no one will take you seriously.
