Star Trek

OMG!!! The movie was awesome! Completely made up for the disaster that was Wolverine. We got the back story on the characters and they threw some new twists in there to give it a new spin. I especially like the love connection between two of the main characters. At first I was worried about Zachary Quinto playing Spock. I know he looks just like him, its just that when I see him I think Sylar from Heroes. hah! But after a few minutes of screen time he proved himself a worthy successor. The best dead on imitation was Karl Urban's Dr. McCoy aka Bones. He was perfect. I loved it when he said "Dammit I'm a doctor not a physicist". He had me rolling. I don't know what else to say only if you haven't seen it you need to stop whatever you are doing and go! right now!

X-Men Origins

Well I would like to say I was highly disappointed. All this hype and I was left with a bad taste in my mouth. Once again a movie is overly hyped and way too many previews are shown. So when you go to the movie you have seen every single action scene already. I do mean the entire action scene, nothing was added, nothing new or even a different camera angle. I knew his girl wasn't dead b/c they showed her in the trailers releasing all those mutants. There was only one surprise in the entire move and that was kind blah. Don't bother for staying after the credits either just a waste of time. The only parts I did like was Ryan Reynolds character, Wade Wilson/Deadpool. I've never taken him seriously but in this role he absolutely kicked butt. Also, my man Gambit did not disappoint just wish he had a bigger role or maybe a new action scene! okay sorry I'll let it go now. Those were my thoughts and feelings.

p.s. All i can say is that Star Trek better not disappoint or I will be hurt :|
p.p.s. Ok I heard there was a cool alternate Deadpool ending to the movie. But since the movie I saw didn't have it I stand by my statement. We had the lame Wolverine ending. boo!!!

kentucky derby

I don't know why but i'm completely obsessed with the kentucky derby, preakness and belmont. I think it may have to do with the fact there hasn't been a triple crown winner since 1978. So it could be the fact there hasn't been one in my lifetime. hmmm. I love it when longshots win the race, such as the 2007 Belmont and a filly, Rags to Riches won. One of the best races I've ever seen. Especially since she was running against Curlin, one of the best horses this century. I'm not kidding you should check out his track record. This past weekend it was another longshot who won, Mine that Bird, 50-1 shot. Pretty bad odds. This proves never underestimate anyone.

I apologize now for the bad calling of the race, just dreadful. I read that Mine that Bird will be racing in the Preakness so maybe this could be the year. We'll just have to wait and see.
