- Telling someone their already-in-poor-health relative has just passed, tell them it’s a prank, and realize it is true.
- Give someone the wrong answers to a test. It’s even less funny if it’s a Final Exam or Mid Term.
- Replace all of the footballs with basketballs right before the state championships, or fill them with a heavy gas.
- Convince your friend that likes a girl that he likes him even more. (DS, don’t get any ideas)
- Fill someone’s locker with jello, oh wait, that is a good one…Noted.
- Convince Paranormalists (DS) that they found water on Mars (See above)
- Announce over the school’s intercom the prom, graduation, all sporting events, and going home has been cancelled.
- Go to a Cathedral, and when they’re sprinkling the holy water on you shout “IT BURNS, IT BURNS!!!”
- Convince everyone we’re being attacked by a foreign country that has no reason to attack us like Canada.
- Pretend like you’re actually interested in this post.
Here’s the trailer for the new upcoming action flick starring Nicholas Cage, entitled Bangkok Dangerous. I just wanna know why he went with the Next hairstyle. I will probably end up waiting for DVD for this one.
This would be the third time a Dr. Seuss movie has been recreated into movie form, aside from How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Cat in the Hat. This is the first run in animated form, but I would recommend you stick with the Grinch. The movie follows Horton (Jim Carrey), a big elephant in the forest of Noel, that’s Noel, not no-el. He is traveling along one day with his friends when he hears a small voice coming from a speck of dust which just-so-happens to be the home of Whoville, a little community led by the Mayor (This time not Jeffrey Tambor, but Steve Carell). He then is determined to get the Whos back to a safe home. Here’s the thing, I was expecting this to be a smart, yet childish movie, mainly because of great voice actors like Steve Carell (Who makes the movie) and Amy Poehler, that and it comes from Blue Sky, who is behind the Ice Age series, a very smart animated series. However, the movie just kinda aimed it’s sights on kids, which kinda dissapointed me, only a few jokes I found really funny. Like I said earlier, Steve Carell really did well in this movie, he does great with voice acting, and so did Jaime Presley, Jim Carrey, and Seth Rogen. However, I’ve now discovered I don’t like Carol Burnett, who voices the kangaroo. The animation in this movie is also really really really good, probably one of the highlights for the movie. They also really captured the look of Dr. Seuss well. The movie’s really cute, kids will love it, but it just didn’t hit the mark for me. I expected it to be a little less kid-oriented. The movie has its moments, some of them being pretty funny (see below video) like some of Horton’s antics or the more out-there jokes, most coming from Steve Carell. Overall, this movie is solid for a view at the theaters, and would even make a solid rent, but if you’re looking for a smart package that both kids and young adults will enjoy, this may not be the thing for you. I actually liked it a lot more than the rest of my family did, my Mom came out of it saying “That was the worst movie EVER!!!”, but I thought it was entertaining.

I actually made this when I was looking for an old friend’s Myspace page. As you can tell, I don’t like myspace.
Here are some of the saddest moments from Scrubs. I’m not obsessed with Scrubs, but they do produce some great videos.
The first, since DS put a trailer with Brendan Frasier in it, includes JD and Dr. Cox going to his funeral. If you only watch one of these, watch this one.
The second is of Laverne’s Tragic Accident.
The Third and Final isn’t that sad.
I was thinking today, and it’s partially related to James’ Athletes, Not Heroes post, but I was wondering why great games like Psychonauts receive great reviews, are so much fun to play, are an absolute blast, are ignored by the gaming public and thus have low sales numbers, yet big game franchises that get trashed by critics are cranking out sequels before you can finish the first one. Really, I would have stood on the street side and publicized Psychonauts if it meant Tim Schafer would receive the funds to make the sequel. Come on, Psychonauts was a strange game, a little outside the box, but that’s why it was fun, and why it was so clever and fun. While these other games use the same tried and failed formula to make all of their games. I loved Psychonauts, and recommed it to anyone looking for a long and fun gaming experience, and I also recommed that gamers out there research the games that they’re going to buy so we can maybe give the underdogs out there the recognition they deserve. Got a game you wanna see a sequel to that flew under the radar? Let me know.
Earlier I did a post about a rumored SOnic title releasing this November:
“Rumors are floating around the net that a new Sonic game, entitled Sonic Unleashed will be hitting stores this November. The blue hedgehog’s next installment has not been denied or confirmed yet, but there has been news reported by Game On, which may or may not be true. They say that Sonic will be once again trying to stop Eggman, but this time with an evil alternate-werewolf self. The name has been patented, and a screenshot (above) and videos have been found, however until Sega confirms it, it is only a rumor. But until then, I’ll just assume that Game On is rught and that Sonic Unleashed, as they are saying, will be released in November on the 360 and Wii.”
It is now confirmed by SEGA, Wikipedia, and a humorous caption by Halolz that the title will go ahead as planned onto it’s November release date. More about the story has been revealed, more importantly that Sonic will be traveling to Mabuz, to fight the dragon Immarius, who turns people to dangerous beasts. There are actually good-looking (graphically) screenshots of Sonic, and one of him and his werewolf counterpart. The game, according to Wikipedia will release this November on the Wii, 360, and PS3.
For those of you looking forward to the new superhero comedy Hancock starring Will Smith, here’s a fansite, entitled “Hancock was Here” I found posting updates to the movie. Click here to visit the site. And here’s a link to a page with some new screenshots of the movie.
This is actually a video compilation I made, compiled of videos mainly from Season 2, but some from Season 1, set to Nickelback’s If Everyone Cared. I made this, so please feel free to comment and let me know how it is. Did I mention that I made it?
This is a video I found where this guy took the audio from the opening theme to My Name is Earl and blended it with Sylar, the end result is hillarious.
I honestly hope I am never transferred to the high school where these kids attended. The bullies there are psycho! It’s like Iraq there! Anyway, fears aside, this movie didn’t really amaze me, but yet was still fun to watch. The movie follows three freshmen in High School, Ryan, Emmit, and Wade, who are having trouble with the school bully, one played by Josh Peck who we haven’t seen in years in movies, besides Nickelodeon. He has really changed since the old days of Drake and Josh. Anywho, the kids have a lot of trouble with these bullies, and they eventually decide to hire a bodyguard, being one of the funniest scenes in the movie. They end up with Drillbit Taylor, an a-wall homeless soldier on the run. He ends up not only protecting them, but also helping them in other areas, like confidence. The kids that play the teenagers did okay performance wise, but Owen Wilson was probably the funniest in the bunch as their Yoda, the kids had funny moments, but he probably had a little more, with great lines like “I FEEL NO PAIN!” The movie is produced by Judd Apatow, who is known for big movies like the 40 Year Old Virgin, Talladega Nights, Superbad, etc., I’m usually not a big fan of his movies, although I thought what I saw of 40 Year Old Virgin was funny. This movie’s a little calmer than the others, you can tell he kinda toned it down for teenagers, however the movie was still pretty raunchy, with a lot of language, definitely not for kids. The was also a litttle too long, going as long as I Am Legend, just dragging on too long in some areas, spending too much time here and there. It just should have been a little shorter and been more fast paced. The movie had some great moments, but was just a little too long and raunchy for me. The main thing I liked about it was that it was fun. I recommend this to Comedy fans, or anyone looking for a fun movie to see on a Friday night, or even a good rent.

In honor of Easter, here is a great music video filled with Easter-Eggs from Insomniac, one of my favorite Developers. Other than that, it has nothing to do with Easter. However, I will be leaving for the a Convention Monday Morning, will be busy with Easter tomorrow, and will probably not be able to post until Wednesday. However, feel free to comment while I’m gone, I may be able to sneak into Radioshack and use their computers so I can read your great comments!
Just in case you couldn’t tell, DVD-view is a pun of review and DVD mashed together. Is this thing on?
I got to pick up the special 2-disc edition of I Am Legend while in town the other day, and I’m pretty psyched about it. It all comes together in a neat package. The packagaing is great, the blue looks really nice and the box art is well done. The set had two discs, one with the regular movie the other with the alternate version. I watched the ending with the alternate version, and felt that the original provided a much more satisfying ending, with the alternate a little confusing, but definitely worth a look. The menu looks nice on both of them, a still picture but still having a nice feel. There are no interviews or commentaries, but the alternate ending makes up for it. It includes some animated comics which are nice for the in-depth fanboys of the novel or movie. I took a peek at one last night. This movie is well worth a rent, even a buy if you were a big fan of it like me. I highly recommend this movie and I also recommend the DVD.
