The Prestige - My Review


So My Wife and I went Friday night to see "The Prestige". I am a big fan of Christopher Nolan (Memento, Batman Begins) I think his movies are very creative and for the most part are unpredictable. I am also starting to like Christian Bale a lot more, he has had a string of really good roles ( The Machinist, Batman Begins and started his career in Swing Kids). Overall the cast really shines for this movie (Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansen, and Michael Caine round out the cast)

"The Prestige" is about two magicians who have a rivalry after an accident on an illusion kills Hugh Jackman's character's wife. The movie is a little hard to follow as it moves around from present day to the magician's pasts. However, the movie is very creative and keeps you engaged many illusions are show and it is very interesting to try and find out how they are done. David Bowie makes a great cameo as the inventor of Tesla technology. I am not going to talk too much about the plot but the movie was a lot of fun even though i was able to predict the ending.

I would give it a 7.5 out of 10.

Going To UFC 65

So My wife and I got tickets to another UFC fight. We already go to go to UFC 58 in vegas and that was a ton of fun. And now we are going to go to one in sacramento. It should be awesome. I just am not looking forward to driving all the way down there. But on the plus side we are going to hit up In-n-out burger and sonic burger since we dont have them here in oregon.

Break-Up tops X-Men with $38.1 million My Take on the Movie

I saw "The Break-up" this weekend. It was another just ok movie. There were some things I really liked about it and some things that were really off about it.

I really like that they had real fights in the movie and it dealt with issues that couples actually have to deal with, it was a very relateable movie for the most part. There were a couple scenes that were just way too cheesy or could have been taken out. The thing I didn't like about it was the ending. Although in thinking about it I am not sure how I would have preferred the movie end.

Vince Vaughn is funny and Jennifer is nice to look at. I would give it about a 6 out of 10.

X Men 3 I would have given a 4 or 5 out of 10.

I got some pictures back from my friend Greg taking engagement photos for Christie and I. I cannot even begin to express how lucky I feel for having a Fiance' and soon a wife that is as beautiful as Christie. I love her so much and she makes me so happy. This is a great picture my only regret is that i look goofy in it.

X-Men: The Last Stand

Somehow this movie made 120 million over the memorial day weekend. Not really sure how, it wasnt that great of a movie and I didnt think Xmen had that big of a following. If anything that is good for the movie industry, hopefully the rest of the summer movies do well also. I know I am really excited for Superman and the New Pirates of the Carribean and for "The Breakup" this weekend, it isnt getting reviewed well but still looks fun.

First Day at Comcast

So I had my first day at Comcast today. It was pretty cool, the people there all seemed really nice and friendly. I got up way early to make sure i wasnt late and ended up getting there in no time. So i sat around in the parking lot for a while, i think tommorow i will sleep in a little more. My cube is pretty nice and they gave me a really nice computer, I think i will even get a laptop also. The one complaint i have is that they dont let you use instant messenger and have it blocked so i guess that means no more at work for me. I guess that means i will get a lot more done. I setup my free cable and internet too so that is cool and I am going to get phone service finally. Anyhoo the job was fun and very interesting, I think i am going to really like marketing and comcast.

Matt Hughes Wins at UFC 60

My buddy Matt Hughes won again last night beating the legendary Royce Gracie. There wasnt much doubt in my mind that he would win. Royce is great and a pioneer but the sport has changed so much since he fought in it, the athelets are just so much better now it is ridiculous. Also Mike Swick won he again beat the oponenent in under 3 minutes. Check out Swick's Myspace (He has a pretty cool blog and talks about what it is like to prepare for fights)

Cell Phones Suck

I have been saying the same thing as this article for the past 3 years. My problem wiht cell phones is they are trying to do everything when really most people only need them to make phone calls. I dont want something that can take pictures, play songs, play games but then cant complete a phone call 25% of the time. I want to have my cell phone as my only phone but cant do this because the thing isnt reliable. I am just astonished that instead of getting phones that just work well they insist on having me watch tv on a 2 inch screen. - That is my rant for the day thanks!

New Puppy Pictures

So I realized it had been a while since I had posted any pictures of my puppy and thought now would be a good time to update you. She just turned 1 year old on May 7th. She is a chocolate lab and is very needy always wanting attention (a lot like Christie). Anyways here are some new pictures of her. Look below at the older posts to compare to when we first got her.

New Job

So I will be starting a new job on Tuesday, that is pretty exciting. I am going to be a marketing analyst at Comcast. They do tons of marketing so there should be quite a bit to analyze. I really think comcast will be good to work for and a pretty decent change from the gloomy environment of Hollywood.

In other news I am getting married on August 19th. I proposed to my fiance on april 24th and she said yes! There has been tons of planning for that but everything is going pretty well just tons to do. Want to see a picture of the ring? Of course you do.

Well that is all for right now. I will try and keep this more up to date and give details of the wedding and of the new job. I love you Christie!

UFC Trip to vegas

Through Hollywood I got to go see a UFC fight in Vegas. It was so much fun. the Fight was Rich Franklin vs. David Leaseo. There were about 6 other fights too. After the fight Christie and I got to meet a bunch of the fighters and the president of UFC it was great and we got free drinks and food and everything. After the fight we went to the PURE nightclub in Ceasars. Christie also hugged Chuck Liddell and we are going to be on the DVD which should be out in a couple months.
