How to Train Your Dragon

DreamWorks released this eye popping and adventurous movie today and I made it a point to see it the day it came out... and I did... and I must say, I was hoping for something as good as "Kung Fu Panda". Actually, I was just hoping for something better than "Monsters Vs Aliens", both of which are earlier DreamWorks animated films.

"Monsters Vs Aliens" was also a 3D movie and was not too impressive. "How to Train Your Dragon", also in 3D, on the other hand, was AMAZING. They really delivered. Good Job DreamWorks for pulling another masterpiece out from behind your back, or wherever you get them.



After seeing the movie, I read today's newspaper article about it. The newspaper compares parts of this movie to Avatar, and I completely understand why. The 3D really adds a sense of realism to the film. And no, not like dragons could actually exist. It's no secret that 3D movies add an amazing amount of depth to the picture. What doesn't help the 3D trend is when movies add cheap gimmicky effects that abuse the 3D. Avatar didn't do that and neither did "How to Train Your Dragon". The added realism that 3D offers comes in handy when your watching a completely computer generated movie.

DreamWorks is no stranger to CGI, and I believe that's something that puts them in the ranks with Pixar these days. "How to Train Your Dragon" definitely falls into the mix of my all time favorite cg movies. It's up there with "Kung Fu Panda" and just about every movie Pixar has created.

If you liked "Kung Fu Panda" and you are wondering about his movie... GO SEE IT. With the upcoming DreamWorks animated films on the horizon, such as Shrek 3... or 4... or whatever, and this dreadful looking one called "Mega Mind", "How to Train Your Dragon" might be your last decent DreamWorks animated film for some time.

We'll just pretend that "Monsters Vs Aliens" never happened. :)

also, on a side note, It's not that I HATED "Monsters Vs Aliens" or anything like that. I think I was just expecting "Kung Fu Panda" and got "Shrek 2" in return... :/

Daily Comic

Every couple of days, my dad puts a comic on my desk. They are usually pretty damn funny. He knows exactly which ones I'll really like and cuts them out of the paper any time one catches his eye.

Recently he gave me this one.

Loved it.

And today he gave me this one...

Amazing.

no work...

I went in to work yesterday and worked on the company website. My boss told us that the place supplying us with work is a bit behind and the artist who does all the images is out of town. So until they catch up to us, we don't have work... So I have the week off.

Today I sat around, played my game, got my motorcycle street ready, got my BICYCLE street ready... TOM HANSON!!!!... and am working on a couple little things on my computer.

Gretchen had school and had to work today so I didn't get to hang out with her at all. I decided to treat myself to Chipotle which was good.

Till I do something tomorrow...

To the Loyal Subjects

Sorry I've been neglecting my posts. As the previous post stated... That game is ruling my life. And it didn't help that two more friends got it yesterday.

But in other news, I've been working... Working, working, working. Haven't had TOO much time to create anything of my own as of late. I've only been working.

Now that I think of it, a friend of mine, Dan Jenson, did this drawing and hasn't posted it anywhere... I've started Illustrating it but haven't got too far yet.



I also started a green ribbon patch/design for on gretchen's motorcycle jacket... I think i'll get it on mine as well once I finish it.
It's not done yet but when it is it will have Chelsey's name on it.

ALSO, I'm getting pretty excited to meet a new member of the Peso party. Little GIRL Peso... They won't divulge the name they've chosen for her yet. But We'll all know it in about a week or so. SO EXCITED!!!

oh yeah, by the way, I saw that movie, "She's out of my league" with Gretchen and my mom. Seemed like they were trying really hard to entertain the guys who got dragged there by their girlfriends. Pretty funny is some spots, but overall, not great.

I'm really looking forward to "How to Train Your Dragon" and "Clash of the Titans".

That's it for now. Hopefully more later today!!!

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Since Tuesday, this game has been eating a lot of my life. It's the classic modern war game with a few different spins on it. I haven't played too much Modern Warfare 2 so I can't compare them but I will say that this is by far the best first person shooter I've played in a very long time.


By far the best thing about this game is the multiplayer mode. I've only played a few minutes of the campaign, and will definitely go back to it, but the multiplayer is where the fun is. In this mode, you start off by choosing what class you'd like to be. Classes include Assault, Engineer, Medic and Recon.

Each class has their own sets of skills and abilities. Assault is more of a generic soldier equipped with a grenade launcher on his gun and the ability to throw down ammunition for himself and teammates.
Engineer, you guessed it, can heal vehicles and is equipped with a rocket launcher for destroying enemy vehicles.
Medic is also pretty predictable with the ability to throw health kits that himself and teammates can stand on to regain health more quickly. He also is equipped with a defibrillator to bring fallen comrades back to life within a few seconds of them dying.
Recon or Reconnaissance is equipped with a sniper rifle and either C4 or the ability to call a mortar strike. This class is dressed with a ghillie suite to help camouflage him in his surroundings.

So far the game has eaten over 16 hour of my life and will probably each much more than that. There are so many new things and achievements to unlock that I don't see myself quitting this game for a long time.

In fact, I think I'll go play right now.

Alice in Underland

So I saw Alice in Wonderland. It was pretty good but not quite what I was hoping for. I wanted more Willie Wonka meets Nightmare before christmas, but what I got was those two meets Sweeny Tod and Sleepy Hallow. All of those movies I liked, by the way, for their own reasons. Alice in Wonderland was just a little over the top in a few places. It was kind of like watching Sleepy Hallow and then they throw in a joke that didn't really fit.

I saw that the paper gave it two out of four stars, and I'm not surprised.

I saw it at midnight by myself... well... with a completely full theater... But I am going to see it again tonight with Gretchen, Paul and Britany.

Hopefully it's better a second time.

eBay-ing

I been doing some eBay-ing, if you haven't noticed from all my star wars figures... But here's a taste of one of my more recent eBay purchases.

Before:


After:

Also, as some of you know, I've been getting t-shirts from a little site called teefury.com. They usually cost $9 plus $2 shipping. which isn't bad for some awesome shirts. Sometimes they do mystery shirt for $5. Usually these shirts are extras that they didn't sell. All you do is choose your size and they send you an extra they had laying around... sort of.

Being a huge star wars fan, I was pretty happy with the Mystery shirt they sent me.

Light-saver! :)
