PSN is back up baby! Hellz yeah!

I've waited far too long without online gaming. I know some people are like "play offline noob" and all I have to say is, I have. I've beaten a majority of my games offline in the PSN downtime. I'm so stoked to play Uncharted 2 online with my headset just yelling "BOOM! HEADSHOT!". Thanks to FPS Doug for bringing that awesome saying into my life. Plus, I enjoy the overall feeling of playing other people. Sure I can have people play with me offline, but it's mostly the same people. Offline offers plenty of chances to play people all over. I'm so stoked. STOKED I SAY!

In other news, Hayden Panettiere broke up with her boyfriend. And I'm glad, it means I have a chance. Sure it's 1 in a million, but I still have a chance. Besides, she looked like she could be his daughter.

And I'm quite pissed, today I said I was going to make a video, but I couldn't think of any damn ideas. It pissed me the hell off. Also, my camera sucks balls. The quality isn't bad, it's just that damn mic, it sucks. It pisses me the hell off. I need a new one and hopefully I'll get one, because I want to show what I got to the world. Hopefully they like it.

Brap brap, it's a trap.

Man vs Food makes me jelly.

By jelly, I mean jealous. I mean how lucky is Adam for being able to go around America and eat great foods. It's a good show. Adam is a very fine host, you can tell that he uses his Master's Degree in drama on the show. He loves food and it comes across well for the viewers. And I think it makes the show much more enjoyable and envy filled.

Some people bash the show claiming it as gluttonous but I don't see it like that. I see it as a guy going across America showing the people the great food they're missing out on. Most shows on food network don't indulge on mom-n-pop restaurants but Man vs Food does, so it makes it even better.

Although, I do feel sorry for Adam. When taping episodes, he has to workout twice a day. And when he has a challenge, he doesn't eat the day before. I don't know if I could do that. I admire his ability to not eat for a DAY. Apparently, he went on a hiatus cause the health problems were catching back up to him. However, I'm happen to hear that the show has just finished taping a new season. I'll be looking forward to it very much.

I'm somewhat inspired to travel to these restaurants and try the different foods. However, I live in Canada so I can only go to a few places without wasting big bucks.

Man vs Food is a good show, despite making me very jelly. I wish it a very long career.

I saw Thor and I must say...(A Review)

I saw Thor today (or yesterday rather since I'm writing this at 5:07am in the morning). It was an alright movie to say the least. To be honest, I'd rank it above the Ironman films, but it still doesn't compare to Spiderman 2. To date, Spiderman 2 in my opinion happens to be the best Marvel film. I have a good feeling about Captain America though. And an Avengers movie? When I first heard about it, I had what people would call a nerdgasm. I'm completely stoked for it. I'll talk more about it when the time comes, but for now, I'll tackle the Mighty Norse God Thor.

I've been a fan of Thor for a long ass time, so I was stoked as hell when I heard about this movie. However like most movie adaptations, I was worried that they were gonna ruin it (like X-men: The Last Stand). I'll try my best not to spoil anything.

Plot: The plot follows Thor comics pretty damn well. However, the movie did slow down a hella lot. The movie starts of excellent with great introductions for the characters. It's cool and stuff and sets the tone rather quickly as an epic. However, that all changes when Thor turns into your standard "Fish out of water" story. You know, new guy in a new place and has to adjust to everything? Examples include, Encino Man and Tarzan. When Thor gets sent to Earth, the movie slows down a hella lot and does not pickup until the climax. During Thor's Earth time, the movie had plenty of moments where my theater laughed. However, because I've seen the "fish out of water" thing so many times, I didn't find them as funny. Instead, they were predictable.  Although I did find some stuff funny, like the pet store scene. Also, just a note, if you watch closely, the projectionist lowers the boom mic too low and you can see it in one of the shots. As I said, the middle is boring, but picks up quite well again when Loki sends the Destroyer to Earth.

I might as well mention the fight scenes here as well. They felt kinda rushed, much like the Ironman films. However, they were beautiful and amazing. Seeing Thor jump into the air and strike Mjolnir into the ground was just badass.

Characters/Acting: For the most part, the acting in this movie is superb. Chris Hemsworth plays a badass Thor. To me, the breakout star was Tom Hiddleston playing Loki. He was just so luring, and his scenes for me were some of the more memorable ones of the movie. I love Loki and Hiddleston's portrayal of him. Natalie Portman was alright in this movie. Nothing special like her character in Black Swan. I guess Black Swan has become a standard for her future performances. I also found her character's relationship with Thor to be hella forced. You don't need a romance in everything Hollywood.

The worst character though was Darcy played by Kat Dennings. She is annoying as hell and has no purpose other than being comedy relief. All she does is spout dumb pop culture references and secretly advertise for Apple and Facebook. As far as I can tell, that was her only purpose. When it came to plot, her character did nothing. She was hot though, but even then, I still found Natalie Portman to be hotter.

My biggest gripe with this movie is the way it's shot. That dumb as hell diagonal shot like Battlefield Earth. It was seriously annoying. I was also annoyed by the rumble camera. There's nothing wrong with simple, clean shots. It's easier on our necks :P

I LOVED the Hawkeye cameo in the movie. Most people in the theater didn't get it (some people were questioning what the point of it was), but it was definitely there for an Avengers setup and comic book fan like myself.

In the end, this was quite the enjoyable movie. Despite my ramblings, I had a good time. I would give it a 7.8/10. I definitely look forward to the Avengers movie as well as the Thor sequel.

It sure has been a long ass time.

I haven't written a post since September. A lot has happened since then, good, and bad. I finished high school in February. I was only there for a semester just to boost my grades up for university. I was bored all throughout my extra stay. I've come to learn that school is bullshit and I hate it with a passion. The thought of it makes my heart ache with sadness and anger. It's just too bleh. Nothing out of the ordinary ever happens. I go to school, sit at a desk for an hour and 15 mins and repeat 2 more times. I'm very much glad that it's over. Hopefully my University years aren't the same. Yes, I got accepted.

My goal for university is to get a degree in something I like and that happens to be health. However, this is more of a cover. My parents have told me, especially my dad that life isn't set in stone. Nothing is certain. As of now, my plan is to get that degree in health and then try my hand at an even bigger dream; acting. Yes, I want to be an actor. It's been my dream for quite some time now. I took a drama class in high school and I've loved the idea of acting ever since.
When I finish University, I will try to become one and if not, I'll get a job with the degree I have. It's quite the plan if I do say so myself. Hopefully it works out, I WANT it to work out. This dream stems deeper than my love of theatre and film. I want to prove assholes who have doubted me that they're wrong. People who have treated me like the shit they avoid on the sidewalk, I want to prove them wrong. And I'm going to, one day.

It's kinda farfetched, but nothing is impossible. All you need is elbow grease and patience.
