The Walking Dead Finale

Well finally midterms are over tomorrow, and I just realized I haven't updated almost since they started, so what better thing to post about than the season 2 finale of one of the most watched TV shows.

Or maybe the comic it's all based on? yeah that seems about right, so if you don't watch the series already that really is no excuse for no reading the comics, I mean I am no comic reader myself, maybe read only the most popular ones and I never got into a comic series, but I'm in vol 7 of the walking dead right now, and I gotta tell you it's fucking awesome, and with a very different feel of the show too.

So if you have read the comics I know you were as exited as me when the prison was shown at the end, even if you haven't because most people agree that this is where the comics kick off and get real good.

Well let's just hope the series does too, they have treated a lot of things differently and skipped a lot of scenes that maybe would be too gruesome for TV, but for the most part and at the end of the day, it's just a zombie show to keep you entertained, maybe it has some flawed logic or bad dialog, too me it's like watching a horror movie, or a horror show rather.

Mass effect 3 sucks?!?

So the Mass Effect series has been going on for a while now and it's often praised for it's desicion making gameplay, and though it doesn't reach deus ex levels where you can really get different endings, the relationships between the characters do change

So with a series this anticipated is hard to please all fans, but damn, as soon as the game was out, thousands of angry bioware fans and haters started picking on every single detail and the war commenced, I don't wanna spoil the ending but you probably won't like it and there are a lot of posts going around saying how they used stock photos for several things and claimed them as their own, how they copied other games, etc.

Personally I've never been a fan of the series but the discussions are just too loud for me to not hear them, and if anything this game did cause some controversy.

The avengers, Men in Black 3

Well I'm running out of excuses but it's the same as last week, it doesn't feel like I posted so long ago but I did, and I can't say there's nothing to talk about because there is, a lot.

However I'm going to skip any games today and talk some movies, specifically 2 trailers released this week, the avengers and MIB 3, one being one of the movies that has so much hype build up that I will be impressed if it lives to it's expectations and the other being a sequel to one of my favorite movies.

As for now both movies look really good, Avengers feels like its gonna be Iron Man 3: Look How Awesome I Am, and hey I'm not complaining it looks awesome and I can't wait to see it, same with MIB 3 that young K had me going for a while.

I really don't wanna say it ahs to be good or bad but I obviously hope they are both a success, until then we can only wait and rewatch that last scene of the avengers trailer, so good.

Goodfellas (1990)

Jesus every time I remember my blog I'm like, hmm I think it's been 2 days since I wrote something, turns out there were 4, and now, well like 5 days and nothing, sorry but I've been really busy with my homework, I think C++ is gonna drive me nuts.

Anyway, since I got no time for cinemas, I decided to start doing reviews on classics and just plain old movies, maybe I'll do some I've watched more in the future, but for now, Goodfellas, for some reason I went my whole life without seeing it until now, and god is it good.

So unless it's a really known film, I won't fuck around in classic reviews, I mean if you really wanted to know if it was good, you would've already know, considering is considered in every other top 10 of all time.

But hey I can give you my opinion about the movie, I started watching and didn't even know it was based on a book or that the book was based on real life, so I was kind of expecting the same godfather mobster story we've all heard thousands of times, and I was really impressed with what I got, just the story of a man who became gangster, made his way up the mob and then fucked everything up, but every part of his life feels important, you have to be paying attention to so much at the same time, that it makes you feel really connected to the character, since you know what he went through and why he's doing what he's doing.

At the end of the day, what makes it good it's that it feels real, the actors and the actions feel real, well maybe because they were.

I could go on on every single detail of what makes it good or mention that half the cast here is in the Sopranos, I'm just gonna drop you a piece of trivia instead:

"The word "fuck" is used 296 times, for an average of 2.04 fucks per minute. About half of them are said by Joe Pesci."

Yeah, you know you're in for a ride, seriously if you haven't watched it, go now, GO WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOIN JESUS CHRIST.
