Jeopardwii

Jeopardy on Wii is fun. Ariel and I have probably played around 8 games and we haven’t had any repeats yet. There are lots of settings that can be changed, including difficulty, response time, signature, response method and sound. Also, you can play with your Mii character and dress them up some. My guy has a guitar on his shirt. Alex’s mouth doesn’t really line up with what he is saying though.

On similar terms, I watched the first 20 minutes of Dirty Harry and plan on watching the rest soon. It was good.

I watched Batman Forever today while doing homework and remembered it exactly as I thought I would remember it. The part where Robin gets pissed as Batman and starts hitting him crappily is weird.

Official™ Renophaston Review: DC Comics: The New 52: Week 1

This is the first post in a series reviewing the new DC Comics “first” issues. For those who don’t know, DC Comics is releasing a bunch of comic books with “#1” on the cover. These will save the dying comic industry somehow, probably magically, because I haven’t seen anyone propose a different way.

I know what you’re thinking: 52 comics is a lot of comics. I completely agree. But you should probably not despair: We are here to help you. Which comics should you buy? What looks rad? Who’s the next break-out hit? How’s the comics are? Where is it? Why is it there? Do you have the time? We’ll answer all your questions, and more! By the end of this series, you’ll be an expert in being right about 52 specific comics. So let’s get this ball started!

Week 1: August 31, 2011

I didn’t buy Justice League, so I don’t know.

See you next week!

Tron Meets 40 minutes of Lenny + Bonus’ses

I saw Tron: Legacy and as Kris already knows I liked it. I want to get the soundtrack and listen to it. I got excited whenever they jumped “into” the light cycles or light jets. I tried it with my wiener and I ended up hurting my wiener.

In conclusion, I watched the first 38 minutes of Lenny, and was a little bored. Dustin Hoffman gave his best performance since Hook, but accidentally filmed Lenny about 20 years earlier.

Tron: Legacy – 4/5 stars
First 38 minutes of Lenny – 2.5/5

30 Words or More

A few hours ago I saw the movie 30 Minutes or Less and I don’t think they should have named it that. Or the title is more clever than I am.

So overall, I give the movie 3/4 stars. I liked it, but it wasn’t important or original. But it was funny and made me laugh a few times. And the theater had really comfortable chairs. But the popcorn was too salty.

So overall, I give the theater 3/4 stars. I liked the seats, but not the popcorn.

Cowboys and Aliens

should have been better. There are a lot of bad parts I want to point out, but you guys might see it sometime.

1.5/4 stars

So to summarize, I give it 1.5/4 stars.

Alien Cow [Image un-embedded by the management because Reno doesn’t want to anger people. Embedding stuff from somebody else’s server is rude because it uses their bandwidth for your stuff. You can upload pictures to WordPress, though! Also, his name is Cad Bane, not “Alien Cow”. Haven’t you seen everything ever made that has to do with Star Wars?]

Renophaston’s live report from SDCC 2011

Oh shit, I forgot I was at San Diego Comic Con this year again! This time I took a boat.

AAARRRGGGG BOATS!!!

First I hotel, then my tickets, all the while I was lost… but the food! OMG TMI! Buses, taxi, TRAM? jk! No time for a drink–had to get going. Found the thing, I did it, but barely. Phew! Long story short.

Here’s everything that happened all weekend:

  • Star Trek and Legion of Superheroes are crossing over! This seemed like a obvious match, until I realized that the two series take place 750 years apart. I can’t imagine them adding time travel to these properties, so I don’t know what they’re going to do.
  • Mega Man Legends 3 is canceled! Poot! Since this was the one reason I chose this era for my current incarnation, I might as well head back to the Eternal Spirit Pool and try sometime else.
  • Marvel asks people to tear up DC comics for variants again, this time without the Deadpool excuse. It’s like seeing somebody try to re-tell a joke they don’t understand, except they were the ones who originally told the joke.
  • There’s a Wolverine in the back of Hall H giving out free donuts if you can pick them up with your penis! Move fast, he’s almost out! (It’s easier than it looks.)
  • Cable is dead-ish, but he’s coming back. Anybody who thinks Cable should come back already, this one’s for you. Unless you care about quality or whatever.
  • DC Comics continues with year 7 of their Tough Sell! initiative, removing iconic characters from their books or altering them so that they are unrecognizable to old fans and new readers alike! The first few years everybody kept reading, expecting their favorite characters to return to greatness, but lately readers have started to catch on, and DC’s sales have shown a steady drop–so they’re going line-wide with the initiative! With any luck, by this time next year DC’s sales numbers will be so low they will finally have an excuse to stop publishing these damned comic books!
  • Beavis & Butt-Head are back, and they’re exactly the same, and I don’t know whether I think anything about that at all. After the panel, though, I went to shake hands with Johnny Knoxville and I accidentally grabbed his penis and he knocked me out. Later people told me it was actually a door that opened towards me, and that I seemed “totally out of it”. Star-struck, more likely!
  • There’s a Dwayne McDuffie panel even though I don’t think he’s done anything new in like five months.
  • Tin Tin looks weird.
  • I think Dan DiDio is making fun of me for liking comics, and I’m not even really in San Diego.
  • DC has fixed the long-standing problem of Barry Allen being the worst Flash by making him the only Flash. Now he’s the best Flash!
  • If you Google Translate from Latin to English, “Quid Pro Quo” becomes “What Happens In Vegas”. Which is not accurate.
  • Oh I almost forgot! Here’s a photo of me and The Cheat from the show floor that I made with crayons:
The Cheat and I

Friends at first bite!

I went as Sporty Spice this year, because she’s pregnant and so am I!
