This is the movie 50 Cent lost 60 lbs for. Its been talked about for almost a year and finally is set to release within the next to weeks officially. He plays a football player that ends up getting cancer and has to make a way in his new life. As a star football player everything was given to him and when he got cancer everything was taken away. I liked that his homeboy from the beginning stayed down with him through the whole ordeal. The ending was a bit cheesy but eh it was a cool film. Ray Liotta was in it for about two scenes and the movie poster got changed from the original which was pretty terrible. Check it out.

I swear Obama could come up with a cure for AIDS today RIGHT NOW, and Republicans would say, "This is not what the American people need at this time. " America needs to be able to vote on bills and issues the same way we do for president. Let the people say yes or no to the issues, not these people with agendas that have nothing to do with the general interests of the people. Warren Buffet one of thee richest people on the planet say that the rich should be taxed different and here's how and the republicans hate the idea. Flip side of the coin, if a Republican would have announced the idea it would be the greatest thing ever proposed. Poor bastard. Sometimes I think he got voted in just to put him and "us" in our place.

Man the weekend was a weird time for Air Shows. 2 crashes in two days. The crash in Reno was the deadliest with 11 fatalities. The pilot was old as hell at 74. And Im not discrediting his skills its just that some 74 year olds can't even drive so operating a WWII aircraft seems a bit much. Additionally this was a super old aircraft. Unfortunate in both cases.

When cell phones first hit the scene in the early 90's they were this massive brick of telecommunication. Weighing in at about 2 to 3 pounds and with a length (including the antenna) of about a baby these things weren't sleek or in design at all but maintained functionality and people bought them because they were super rare and cool at the time. I'm not sure it met a convenience market as its size and weak signals and huge car charger you had to bring along to accompany this behemoth added 20 pounds to any real on the go person.
Then the next wave of phones hit and they were super small. They had white and white screens and an internal antenna. This was excellent for everyone. Form plus function were met in these newer models. The only concerns were people constantly losing their new smaller phones and the thought that the phones gave people brain cancer which is still pretty inconclusive.
In the early 2000's flip phones and slide phones were introduced. This left people with a lot of broken phones and cracked screens. But the phones were way better at sending and receiving information and the form fit better in the newer digital society.
Recently "smart" phones are getting bigger! They are way thinner but they are getting pretty wide. The Sprint EVO is friggen monstrous. So it seems that the more the phone is capable of doing the bigger they have become. It won't be too long until we are right back with a huge block of technology to carry around and thus the cycle will begin again.
I Don't Like Nobody Playin' On My Phone
See the thing is women love this movie so much so that they overlook the fact that Julia Roberts was a prostitute in the movie. Women look at the film as a love story between a successful business man and young girl that made poor life choices (or did she?). If America didn't act like this was one of the greatest love stories of all time then maybe this mother wouldn't have dressed her child in this costume that she believed was appropriate. Some people aren't smart enough to figure out that she was a prostitute in the film, she wasn't portraying your everyday run of the mill prostitute. So in a sense I can sorta see the mother's confusion in a moronic kinda way. This poor kid though, she doesn't even know how messed up she is gonna be in the future.

As Far As The Eye Can See
This was like an updated ET, but cooler and more cursing and explosions. It still wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I could appreciate it from the aspect of the little kid making movies. It wasn't really that breath taking, suspenseful or anything really. It's a movie. Ehh!
Just go the F home!

The title is simple, the movie is fun, its good. Aliens invade Earth for gold. And kills or kidnaps anyone in their way. This is the first hybrid Sci Fi Western I've seen (I think it's the 1st ever) it was pretty cool. Directed by Jon Faveau of Iron Man fame. It's like War of the Worlds the Western.
We want your gold *Pirate Voice*
I stumbled upon Film Riot while looking fir video tutorials and effects for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. The show is hosted by Ryan Connelly and is about how to shoot short films, movies, and how to do effects in camera and with the use of programs such as After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro. Great show.
