Captain America: The First Avenger

 

Thank you Marvel! Thank you for not making a crappy Captain America movie!

Captain America is my favorite comic book and comic character so I was both looking forward to and afraid of what the new movie was going to be. I am happy to say that it exceeded my expectations. I won’t go into a full review of the movie as others do a much better job at that than I. However, I can say they followed the Captain America story very closely and made a movie that was fun, entertaining and action packed and presented in a way that both old fans of the comic book and those who never picked a book up will enjoy equally. They were able to accomplish in this movie the origin story of Captain America (WWII) and finish it up at modern day in preperation of the Avengers movie next year.

Speaking of Avengers, if you go see Captain America in the theater, be sure to stay until the end of the credits, they show the trailer for the Avengers movie!

Beavis and Butt-Head are back

I was a huge Beavis and Butt-Head fan when it first aired on MTV, when I heard they were bringing it back I was concerned.   Most things that I revisit are always a let down,  I should have just remembered it the way it was.   How can Beavis and Butt-head make fun of music videos,  I have not seen a music video in years.   All thats on MTV these days is reality TV, so Beavis and Butt-head watch Jersey Shore.  Sign me up,  I am now excited to re-watch this show.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Trailer

I played this game so much back in the day, this is a day one purchase for me. Since it is an Arcade Game I do not expect it to be more that $15.   I hope we will be able to put in codes and play as Bill Clinton and Al Gore.   They could update and add some 2011 characters… The cast of Jersey Shore is where they should start and just move on from there.

Unlocks…. Continue reading

Time for a change……

After years of running splanic.com as a forum and a CMS, I think it is time for a change.   In the last month we have had just a couple posts on Splanic.   I see that people are still visiting but no one is posting.   I still like posting but I think the forum is not the best option for us.   We are going to look at more of a Blog format where all Splanic member can comment or post their own content…. Even Bighead and Ginzo…

I am going to start this a blog on WordPress.   Feel free to stay in read-only mode if you would rather do that.   There will be a comment sections on all posts so there still can be some back and forth.   If you want to be a poster try to set up an account on wordpress.com,  should only take a few minutes.  Let me know the username so I can grant access to you.  If you have issues post them on the old forum….

This is what you can expect from this site from me….
