Being inexplicably tired again, I'm sure to keep this brief. There are no TV shows I "regret" watching. There are some where I'll watch and then think "Why the hell did I just watch that?" And there some which I could've done without, E.G. The carer thang.
Movies based on my favourite games are a touchy subject for me though. It's a case of, I know they're going to miss the essence of the game, but I still have to watch it, because the law of averages predict that for every thousand game-to-movie conversions, ONE of them has to be good. To this day, nothing comes to mind. The Hitman movie although, wasn't too bad, wasn't good either, and then if we take it back to the last millenium when the Mortal Kombat concept was abused and put on the silver screen, we can see this is a trend that hasn't changed. I can't think of any others that I've seen actually, though I know there are many more, Mario? urgh... See, in my humble opinion, that did not represent the "true" life and day to day going-ons of the Mushroom-popping, Star-Chasing, Italian-Plumber. This video, however, does.
Awesome no? Had me laughing for a long time after I saw that. There is always a risk run, when you decide to love a game, the risk that one day, some guy, armed with nothing but a dream, a script and a multi-million pound/dollar/*insert other curreny here* budget, is going to mutilate it. Roll on the PGR movie, that'll be awesome. Oh, why, in the Burnout Paradise Demo, do the cars not have drivers in them? Doesn't that seem a little odd?
The hands of the clock move ever closer to the 25th. Not really a problem par-se, but a day, period, I'd like to get done with as fast as possible. If it wasn't it for my niece, I'd probably just attempt to sleep through the day. The last few days have been really uneventful. I've just been watching Movies, passing the time by. This morning/afternoon, I watched "The Count Of Monte Cristo" It really is a great film, and I think I'll watch the Back To The Future Trilogy at some point soon, not a big fan, but I am that bored.
That's it for today, nothing special to be done with this blog. Not sure if I'll manage to post a blog tomorrow, but to all who read this Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and remember, Drink In Moderation :D
