I saw Jumper for the 1st time today. Not bad. Plot was pretty dumb but ehh oh well. The movie posed more questions than answers though. The Paladins hunted the "Jumpers" b/c they felt that nobody should have that kind of power but God, so how did they figure they had the some power to kill. Especially with the understanding that God made the Jumpers. Seems as if it would be very easy to kill Roland (Sam Jackson's character) by just taking him to the Empire State Building and dropping him off of it. And if Hayden's character 1st "jumped" when he was 5 why didn't he do it again til he was like 13? And why did he pick the school library of all places? And how come Rachael's character never asked where he went for 8 years? But I digress, its a movie and they only have so much time to explain things without it getting totally boring.

I like Tom Cruise, I don't know why some ppl have given up on him. He is a very well rounded actor. This movie is wacky as hell. It was fun and over the top in some places and I'm not a 1000% sure it made sense but I liked it. Nice action scenes it was just a little silly but I think that's what they were going for.
If you are a Wiz Khalifa fan, you are sure to know about Chevy Woods (Formerly Kev Da Hustler) . No clue as to why he changed his name I like Kev better than the car name but whatever. No Sledgren on here which is a shame. No Johnny Juliano either. Ehh?? And French Montana is on it....ehhhh???? I hope this sounds more like some old Wiz tapes and brings that good ole feeling back.

Tonight 3/16/2011 I witnessed on Jeopardy two of the three contestants NOT make it to Final Jeopardy! Never have I saw such a thing. I suppose it happened before because asshole Trebeck didn't make a big deal about it but GEEZ that was crazy. Both contestants were in the red (negative score) pretty much the entire game and the champion was just sailing past and he had about 11K by the end of the first round. Final Jeopardy he was the only one there to answer the last question which he did get right but didn't wager a lot at all.

This is indeed a FIASCO! I had been seeing the chatter on the internets about how bad this album was. But as a true listener, student of music and fan of Lu I purchase Lasers ( I mean it's called Lasers -- that's a kick ass title.) The build up was epic. His fans rally for him get a petition signed for the label to let him release music. A few days go pass and Lupe takes a photo with a person from the label as if things are good to go.
The single comes out --- "The Show Goes On" produced by Kane beats. COOL! Dope message in the lyrics the beat is more bells and whistles then I'm used to from Lu but is nice. Another song hits the net. "Words I Should've Said" ILL!! Tells why he didn't vote for Obama and a host of other issues --- its deep! So now I'm listening to the album and its pretty bad. Trey Songz?? I fuck with Trigga and they are label mates and what have you but this is just wrong. The lyrics aren't bad the beat isn't bad it's just a bad combination ( sorry Street). And unfortunately the whole album pretty much plays this way. Very bad mixes of odd beats to good lyrics.
But where this really falls short are the songs that are very forced. These songs sound like reference tracks for another artist. Not Lupe though. I mean this is just bizarre. I am not all the way mad at him though. The machine needs its money and it's stars and he still pretty much said fuck the label on a couple tracks on the album so you can feel where he is coming from. This is one of those Prince, SLAVE on the face moments. Hopefully Lu can bounce back and make another classic with producers that we the fans have actually heard of and songs that we and Lupe actually enjoy.
George Clooney plays a spy who just can't get out of the business. The movie is slow paced but it's good. The action scenes in the film are fast and thrilling and each character keeps you guessing on their position.

Jason Statham plays his usual role as a killer, expert, super assassin. This is a bloody and gory shooting good time. Sure its over the top and highly improbable but it makes for an entertaining film. It's kinda like RED x James Bond x Batman. Not in a quality aspect just in the mixing of characters and plot.
