After a very, very up and down summer movie season, I'm looking forward to the fall and in to the winter. Indies are now starting to really come out, then you have all those Oscar calibur stuff.
If you're looking for major updates, well you can probably just go check out the blog section. That's where most of the latest stuff has been and it all dates it automatically making my life easier. A couple big things in the works not site-related but if it ends up going, I'll be using the blog for something pretty awesome in addition to just regular movies and games stuff.
I finally fixed the Twitter feed. That was a chore.
Also added a few new links to the sidebar as well, just friend's blogs.
I need to do another videogame article. Let me think...what can I do...what game really captures a certain moment in time from my life. Hmmm.....well, it'll come to me.
Another very rare update on this home page. I think I tend to forget about it because I just update the top banner and do the blogs, but hey...I'm updating something, right? So go to those blogs and look at the many I've put up. A lot more than usual, and for updates on more recent stuff, just check out the banner navigation.
I've started doing the Prompt Thoughts blog and been enjoying it, but I'm changing that up a bit. Instead of one big one, I'll split it up into smaller ones starting next week. Guess I'll have to do that banner update with new images more, but that's fine.
Movie reviews remain the same. I'm backlogged, have a good five or six just sitting here including Stoker, Hangover 3 and a couple of good little horror flicks, and they'll get up eventually. I'm actually seeing more movies that I'm always able to just dip in to the pot and pull out a review. Better than rushing one out, I think, though I did rush out that Man of Steel review. Disappointing flick, but not a horrible one that the internet likes to say. You know how the internets go.
My guest writers are being lazy. Yeah, I made a whole section for them to put stuff in and they keep pushing their dates. I better get on 'em.
So that's it, go read some blogs and comment and whatnot. I dunno, I'm tired. I write way too much. Still working on other bigger articles, like a Last of Us review. Man, now THAT's a game. Actually that's just a really good story that happens to be a game, but that's the point. Just finished another script and a 20 page treatment, waiting on feedback...that's the way it goes.
Well that kind of snuck up on me. Though I've slowed down on a few things around here, I still try and post something every day, so you can check out the past few blogs that run the gamut of stuff and where I've been spending most of my time, and the handful of movie reviews I'm still able to get out (including Oz the Great and Powerful today, which I surprisingly enjoyed).
Here's some other bigger things:
Hey, remember this series? Yeah, it's still around, but only if something strikes me. A new blu-ray of Princess Bride was the catalyst here for me to think back to my childhood.
Everyone else was doing it, and you know...if everyone jumped off a bridge I'd jump too because I wouldn't want to be lonely.
A couple of Videogame Memories:
The original on the Playstation, though I'm debating if I want to do one for its superior sequel. Thing is, that would just turn in to some sort of review, the first Silent Hill is where my "vidoegame memories" reside.
Back before I got burned out on the series...then again despite the memories I have towards it, did I even like the game or did I like it because everyone else liked it? Ooohh...so philosophical.
Tons of Blogs, here's some.
I read a lot of screenplays in my line of work..and I when I say "read" I mean "kinda scan if it interests me." Here's a blog, Rules of Engagement, about how this approach to time-management has influenced everything else in my life.
Tropes n Stuff is a look at a new webseries, I'd argue a pretty important one, but I worry it may not cover everything, so I kind of note that and hopefully avoid backlash in the process.
Oh, and I got rid of some stuff in the Review Database, kept the dated entries but it was just getting too much work to keep the rest of it organized.
