As most of you probably realised, I didn’t post last week… oops.
I don’t even have a valid excuse… besides the fact that I was on leave (my first leave in a loooong time) and that I’m lazy. ^^
It wasn’t totally unproductive… I did manage to get most of the Necromunda terrain done, and you should be able to check it out in all it’s glory in a full turorial that I’ll post next week.
Took time out to see both SuckerPunch and Thor this past week… both of which I enjoyed immensely:
I know SuckerPunch has been getting shocking reviews, but I think people are taking it the wrong way… it’s not a standard action thriller and it’s not an in depth, thought provoking sci-fi… what it looks like to me is an original idea that showcases some seriously spectacular visuals and fight scenes while challenging the status-quo for action movie scripts (this is not the romance/action/comedy that you’re used to) and I always love a movie where I can’t predict the ending and I leave the cinema with a couple questions as to what exactly was going on.
Thor was… THOR!!! I really like this Super hero movie… Thor wasn’t a annoying little tit like spider-man… he was THOR! I think Chris Hemsworth did a great job… as it can’t be easy to bring the right amount of naivete , arrogance and honor to the role.
Oh, and I kick serious ass in Marvel vs. Capcom 3…. seriously… I’ll damage you.
I’d also like to say thanks to Ian for keeping the site ticking over last week, and introduce a new poster, Simon, who’ll also be joining us… Ian, Simon and myself have been good friends for years now… ever since a crazy DnD game where the three of us where all playing and DMing ourselves… it was a weird setup, great fun and probably wouldn’t work with any other people I know… Good to have you guys on the site!
Thanks for reading, and come back next week for the a return to normal.
