Summer Movies 2012

Yesterday I watched The Avengers. Up front I must say that I hadn't planned on it. I was in Tulsa waiting to talk to someone. I couldn't go home so I watched a movie. The show was after 5:00 so I paid full price. The movie was in 3D so they added another $3. So I paid $12 to watch one movie. That is the most I have ever paid. Anyway, the movie itself was pretty good. I liked the story and how the characters interacted with each other. The 3D really didn't add much. A few of the scenes looked cool, but for the most part the movie appeared 2D.

 

As much as I enjoyed the film I started to get the feeling I had already seen it before. The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen came to mind. Considering no one watched that movie I'm guessing it slipped by most. I hope I'm not the only one who sees it.

 

Before the movie I got to enjoy 20+ minutes of previews. I got to see a preview of the new Spider-man. I'm honestly not sure what to think. It's not like any Spider-man I've ever seen. It almost seems as though they put the Spider-man character in the Batman Begins story. Very strange stuff. That Prometheus movie looks lame. The only other preview I remember is the new Dark Knight one. It looked promising, but I honestly have no idea what the story is really about.

 

Any thoughts on this summers movies?

I just so the Avengers on Wednesday for $6.50, no 3d shit. I liked it. Batman looks pretty good, Spiderman-saw the trailer on line and did not think it looked that great,but saw tha trailer on tv and at the theater and thought it looked better. I have all the superhero/comic book movies on dvd, ijust think that they are highly entertaining, plus I have a 6 and 4 year old (boys) who I think will like these movies when they get a little older.

I haven't seen much of this summers offerings. I'll likely have to catch up at the dollar theater. The results so far have suprised me. The kid friendly Snow White didn't do do that great, but the much darker Kristen Stewart one has done really well. Adam Sandlers newest movie tanked, but a perverted talking bear is a big hit. The #1 and #2 movies last week at the box office were both rated R. Piranha 3DD didn't even make a blip on the radar. It supposedly came out at the beginning of last month, but I'm not sure if it even made it to this area. The new Spider-man appears to be doing great business. The reviews say it's everything the last series should have been. It's hard for me to believe it could be that much better. The first two movies didn't exactly set the bar low.

I never go to the movies anymore so I won't be seeing any of 'em till they hit DVD. Check back with me in three or four months. :D

    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
    • Tesla have released a new track titled "Time to Rock"  (Since this isn't really a video per se, I decided to drop it here in the hard rock forum)      
    • 1. Cinderella - Heartbreak Station   2.  Poison - Flesh & Blood   3.  Slaughter - Stick It To Ya 4.  Warrant - Cherry Pie 5.  Ratt - Detonator 6.  Winger - In The Heart Of The Young 7.  Jon Bon Jovi - Blaze Of Glory 8.  Trixter - Trixter 9.  The Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker 10. Pretty Maids - Jump The Gun
    • Nazareth - Surviving the Law Solid disc featuring Carl Sentance's second go round on vocals; that lead off track "Strange Days" is particularly good!  
    • listened a couple times, a few ok tunes but nothing I feel the need to listen to ever again. shame.
    • Jokes on you; I don't even have an attic. 
    • Heard this today and looks like being underwhelmed is nothing different. Musically it's still top notch, but there's quite a few pretty weak songs on this one. Way below par for HEAT. 'Hollywood' and 'Wings Of An Aeroplane' were the two stand outs for me, and a couple of others were okay, but for the most part, really quite underwhelming.  I like Kenny's vocals and there's no really prevalent issue other than the fact that some of the songs are just poorly written. Sad, yet simple.
