Tuesday Media Roundup #45

TV: Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution – So far it’s been an interesting look at what kids are fed in school. And seeing the food people consume for a given period of time in one pile is an effective tool he uses to show people how they are eating poorly. Movies: Jericho – I haven’t seen […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #44

Games: Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box – I’ve finally finished up the second Professor Layton game. I liked the setting and feel of this game better than the first one. The animation for the cut-scenes are both increased in amount and in quality. I think there are a few cases of poor wording of […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #42

New TV shows Glee – Without a doubt the new show I’m most enjoying. Fun characters with good song and dance! It’s the only show where I would be disappointed if it were to be cancelled, and I see myself getting it on DVD. Cougar Town – It’s like getting a Scrubs fix, not in […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #39

When free preview weekends for movie channels come around I record pretty much everything I haven’t seen and then I try to watch them all before the next free-preview weekend comes around. Because of this habit I sometimes watch movies I normally wouldn’t bother with just because it’s there. I should try to do these […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #36

Weeds season 4 finale – This is the first Weeds finale that didn’t leave it with the assumption that it might not get renewed fort another season while still ending on quite a cliffhanger. I don’t know how much longer the show can keep going but at this point I’ll keep enjoying it as long […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #35

Mythbusters Moonlanding Myths – It’s been quite awhile since I thought they were testing real myths but in this case they come though in the testing of what consipracy theorists consider the biggest evidence that the moon landings were faked. Tropic Thunder – The funniest movie I’ve seen in awhile and the best Ben Stiller […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #34

It’s been almost three months since the last update and I have 15 movies and one tv documentary here so it looks like I average just over one movie a week. The Extreme Adventures of Super Dave –  I loved the Super Dave shorts when I was a kid so when this came on I […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #32

A Knight’s Tale – With the passing of Heath Ledger I learned that I had not actually seen any of his movies. I probably wasn’t going to be seeing any until The Dark Knight later this summer until I saw a movie channel was playing A Knight’s Tale. Aside from names it doesn’t have much […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #26

Rocky III – Still working my way through the Rocky movies again. Mr. T starts out pretty menacing but halfway through he turns into a charicature of himself. The central story of a man overcoming loss of  confidence brought about by learning his accomplishments were a lie works though. Not as good as the first […]


Tuesday Media Roundup #25

National Treasure: Book of Secrets – Like the first National Treasure movie, this one was a lot of fun though less realistic. Also you have to have seen the first one to appreciate the characters. RoboCop – I re-watched this in HD recently. It’s nice to not have every movie with machines be man vs […]
