This blog has taken a shift of late and focusing more on the diet/exercise aspect of my life here lately. While I'm still struggling a bit with that, I thought I'd take a moment and let you know how my nerdy side is doing.
New Orleans Comic Con -
For the first time in 4 years, we actually didn't go this year. I'm a little sad now that its over with that we didn't but there just wasn't anyone I was dying to see. Plus it was just an unnecessary expense that we could easily forgo this time around. Now if Stephen Amell went to NolaCC that would have been a different story altogether! :)
Tabletop gaming -
We've played some DnD recently and progressing a bit there. (Level 6 for my dragonborn, Kava!). I do want to get back to playing some Munchkin or some other games soon.
Console/pc gaming -
Currently I'm addicted to Dragonage: Inquisition while Mr. Skinny Geek is hooked on Destiny. We really need a 2nd PS4. Our poor laptop wont handle anything else but I've been secretly itching to play the Sims 4. Every once in a while also, I get an urge to play WoW again but then it goes away and I come back to my senses. (Secretly I'm terrified if I play WoW again all my weight will come back on me tenfold)
Have you seen the Avengers 2 trailer yet? If not, go watch. Seriously. I'll wait.
BAD. ASS. I cannot wait until May 1st!
Here's a few movies that I've watched and my thoughts on them.
Selma - Great movie and wonderfully acted. I'm glad I watched this. Tough to get through though.
The Imitation Game - One of Cumberbatch's finest performances. Seriously. Great movie. Even Vampiress, Keira Knightly did a decent job (her teeth remind me of a vampire).
The Hobbit - The Battle of the Five Armies - Ok, so here it is. I liked it. I didn't love it because of what they did to the ending. I can't say any more without giving away spoilers. If you watched it, you know what I mean. I am NOT happy about a few things but I will say this. This was the best of the 3 movies even with the shitty ending. This movie made it all the more glaring the fact that Peter Jackson should have never cut the movie into 3. The first 2 could have been combined easily. In fact the first movie should have been cut off as soon as they took off from the Shire but I digress.
The Edge of Tomorrow: Live, Die, Repeat - Oddly enough going into this I thought I would hate it. But, I actually kinda liked it. It's like Groundhog Day but in the future and with Tom Cruise. BUT, it was honestly not too shabby.
Into the Woods - Ok yea. This wins for the worst movie I saw of 2015 so far. UGH. I wasted a gift card on this crap! I knew it was a musical but it was just awful. Hated it. Even with Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All's dad in it (Doctor Who reference).
Big Hero 6 - Loved this! It was great!
Currently we've binged on The Blacklist and although I detest all things James Spader, he sure does make a great Raymond Reddington. I'm glad Top Gear is finally back on BBC America and now we are just biding our time until The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones comes back on! There's a few more things here and there that we watch and love (Archer, Parks and Rec, etc!) too.
Way, way way behind on my reading but currently reading Book #2 of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber. Ok yes, I do have a girly vice every now and then. :P
So what fun stuff have you watched or played lately?
