I was thinking I should type a blog since it is the return of a new season tonight. If you do not know what this show is about than you have been living under a rock your whole entire life. I'll explain it in case you do live under a rock. Futurama is about a 20th century delivery boy named Phillip Fry who was accidentally cryogenically frozen for 1,000 years. He finds employment at a delivery company named Planet Express. Some of the characters include Leela who is a cyclops also the captain of the ship in the show, Bender a foul mouthed, heavy drinking and smoking but hilarious robot, and many other if you want to find out watch the show tonight at 10 or watch it on Netflix. This show was created by Matt Groening who also created The Simpsons. Originally the show aired on Fox but than was cancelled in 2003, than for awhile the episodes were syndicated on comedy central and adult swim. It was revived as four films in 2007 and than in 2009 Comedy Central announced that they picked up the show for new season. I was pretty excited when I heard that because Futurama was such a good show and I was upset when they cancelled it. The Simpsons are still a good show but not as funny as they used to thats why I think Futurama is funnier. I recommend most of the things I type about so I recommend you watch this.

Max Payne 3

I know I did a blog on the series already but this is more of just a blog on third installment of the series. The video game was released for PS3, Xbox 360 on May 15th and for PC in the end of May. Like the last two games its was published by Rockstar Games (creators of Grand Theft Auto). The game is set in Sao Paulo, Brazil eight years after the events in the second game. Max Payne now works in executive protection for the wealthy Rodrigo Branco in the hopes of escaping the memories of his troubled past. When a street gang kidnaps Rodrigo's wife, Max is pulled into a conspiracy of shadowy, warring factions threading every aspect of Sao Paulo society in a deadly web that threatens to engulf everyone and everything around him. Many of the things in the last two games are in this game such as bullet time. In bullet-time it is possible to see every bullet make a hole in the enemies. There is a Last Man Standing mechanic, which gives Max a reprieve from death for a small period if he has any painkillers on him. If your able to kill the enemy that delivered the wounding shot with bullets he'll recover enough energy to continue the mission. Max Payne 3 retains the bullet dodge from the previous games. Max is also able to stay grounded after a dive, which enables him to shoot 360 degrees around. New to the series are cinematic action movements, interactive cut-scenes which transition seamlessly into continuing gameplay. Moreover there are loading screens across gameplay and cutscenes. Everything in the game is great except I would have to pay $30 in order to play the multiplayer for this game. I do not have $30 so i cannot play the multiplayer and I cannot tell you about the multiplayer obviously. I recommend you play this game especially if you loved the previous games as much as me.

Spyro the Dragon

This is probably one of my favorite PlayStation one classics that you could never stop playing. Spyro the Dragon was first released in 1998. In case you do not know it is a platform game that placed the player as Spyro, a small, purple dragon set with the task of freeing some of his fellow dragons from crystal prisons, which are scattered around their world. Each level is accessed through 'portals' from a main world. The game concludes with a fight between Spyro and the primary antagonist, Gnasty Gnorc. Then five more games in the original series were released: Spyro 2: Ripto Rage, Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Spyro: A Hero's Tail, and Spyro: Shadow Legacy. All released in the late 1990's and early 2000's. I didn't play the "Legend of Spyro" games I don't know why but they look as fun as those original games were. If anyone played the legend series comment below if you enjoyed the game or not. Because I am curious to see how those games are. I also haven't played the latest spyro skylanders game because to me that game looks dumb. Even though most of the original series felt like it was impossible to defeat, I still enjoyed playing those games. Funny thing is I found out some of the voices were well known like Carlos Alazraqui who first voiced Spryo voiced Rocko in Rocko's Modern Life and who played Deputy Garcia in Reno 911, Tom Kenny who voices spongebob provided the voice, even Elijah Wood at one point was the voice of Spyro. I am not quite sure who they voiced but David Spade and Gary Oldman also provided their voices to one of these games.

X-Men First Class

I have always been a fan of comic books and the movie adaptions. When this movie first came out I meant to see it but I never got a chance to. Out of all the movie adaptions of comic books I have to say X-Men is my favorite (well until the avengers come out of course). X-Men first class is about how Professor X and Magneto started out their friendship and the origins of X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants. This movie was so badass. I have always wondered what it would be like to have these powers like the X-Men. I think it would be awesome to either have the powers of Professor X or Magneto. If you are living under a rock the ability that Professor X has is telepathy, and the ability that Magneto is to move things with his mind. I think either of those are pretty awesome to have. In the beginning, it shows the childhood of the two, and how they evolve into adults. In the movie it takes place during the Cuban Missile Crisis but with a little turn how Sebastian Shaw the leader of the Hellfire Club is trying to take over the world. I definitely would not get tired of watching this movie over and over again. If you haven't seen this I highly recommend you do especially if you are into movies based off of comics just like me. Recently there has been talks in making a sequel or more to this movie and eventually making it a series.

At first Moneyball was one of those movies where you wondered if you should go see the movie when it comes out in theaters or wait for it to be on DVD. It was kind of like that but I was just too lazy to spend $11 to go see the movie. The film is based off a book written by Michael Lewis who also wrote The Blind Side which was adapted into a movie in 2009. Moneyball is takes place during the 2002 season of the Oakland Athletics and how Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) the general manager attempts to rebuild the team after two of their biggest players sign with another team. Beane and assistant GM Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) faced with the franchise's unfavorable financial situation and get players that no other team would sign due to age, an injury. etc. It also includes how they won 20 consecutive games (an American League Record) while trying to make it into the postseason. Some of the players including pitcher Chad Bradford, and former catcher Scott Hatteberg. I am not going to ruin it all I am going to say is that when they get their 20th consecutive win is my favorite scene. To find out why go see the movie. When I saw the trailer of the movie I thought it was just going to be another typical baseball movie. But it wasn't because the events in this movie actually happened in real life.The actors in the movie include, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and many others. Out of all of those movies Moneyball was the greatest in my opinion. If you haven't seen this movie yet I recommend you buy, rent, or download it. Part of why it was so good is that the casting was really good.

Old Cartoons Are So Much Better!

Let me just get this out of the way now cartoons today cannot be compared to cartoons in the past. There is no way in hell that can happen. Cartoons that are on today are complete shit. Like what the hell happened to Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon? The only thing good on cartoon network is Adult Swim, everything else on during the day is garbage. I remember so many good cartoons on Cartoon Network such as Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo,etc. But now they have crappy shows like Ben 10. I don't understand why it is still called Cartoon Network because they air shows that aren't animated as well. Nickelodeon is definitely worse than Cartoon Network because it's constant iCarly and Big Time Rush it makes me puke to see that shows like that are actually on air. Recently Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network realized what the hell did we do? And started a block of old cartoons from those channels at a certain time slot. For example one of nickelodeons channels The N has a block called The 90's Are All That where they air some of the good cartoons that used to be on. More recent cartoon network started a block called Cartoon Planet on Fridays at 8pm hosted by Brak and Zorak from Space Ghost. There are plenty of good cartoons that weren't from the 90's such as Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry. Truth is I just miss being a kid, you never had to do anything just watched these cartoons. My favorite cartoon when I was little was probably Rocko's Modern Life. Off topic but just realized that Rocko's Modern Life was kind of dirty if you go back and look some clips up. If you enjoyed this post comment below if you agree with me or not and about what your favorite cartoon was as a child.
