Happy New Year! 2011 comes and goes, and left more of a lasting impression than any other year. More people were met, more accomplishments successful, and more upcoming tasks expecting.
I would like to welcome all new readers and welcome back all my frequent readers. It’s now only five months in, and it’s still going. I really want to thank all readers so far. You made this a great experience so far. But it’s still an ongoing learning experience. So let’s keep going, head first, into the future.
So, let’s make some points along the way.
- One of my New year’s resolution is to lose some weight. I’m not a very fit individual, and my eating habits are pretty uncontrollable I’m not sure if I should post weekly updates on my progress. Something for me to think of.
- Added two new links to the side bar to my good twitter friends. Check out Lilibean by @nadinect23 and Moxie Jeans by @YeungJeans for some great reads, including some great words of wisdom for the new years.
- Sad to hear my friends from Two guys one movie are hanging up their keyboards, but I do wish them congratulations for getting through their task of watching a movie a day for one year. That’s definitely an accomplishment. I had a chance to watch a movie with Puneet three times this year, and he’s a great guy. Reading them earlier in the year, is what inspired me to finally get off my butt and launch this site, so I do want to thank them for that. Can’t wait to see what the next step for them is.
- I have been entrenched with Saints Row 3 for the last week or so. It’s more fun than I realized. I was also got Saints Row 2 for Christmas, and I need to make a compare and contrast sometime this week.
- Poker season restarts this week, so I should be back into that. Still need to set up my trip to Vegas in April for the Finals. Apparently, there are currently 950+ participants in the same tournament, more than I have ever been in. I honestly can’t wait for that.
- I’ll be watching the presidential election this year. I won’t post my political beliefs on this site, because this is not the place for them. If you are interested in my stance, shoot me an email or contact me another way, and we’ll have a down-to-earth discussion. Or, if you can think of another way to me to talk about it, I’m open to other suggestions.
- Leafs. Seriously? What the hell?
Don’t forget, you can send your comments below, or email them. Any and all feedback counts towards the greater good. (Previously)(at)(Septicor)(dot)(com)
And now our feature presentation, my monthly list of movies I would check out with anyone and everyone who wishes to join.
Yes, I would like to see:
Contraband – January 13
Mark Wahlberg is back to being a bad ass. Contrary to popular opinion, when he does it right, it’s really fun.
Underworld Awakening — January 20
Let’s make one thing perfectly clear. I am still on the fence as to if I liked any of the first three movies. But, I still gave them a shot. Besides, I know many people that want to see it, and I’ll more than like dragged along.
The Grey – January 27
Liam Neeson being a bad ass. You had me at hello. The only caveat so far, the plot looks like Fire Down Below, the Steven Seagal nightmare dubbed one of the worst movies of the year.
Man on a Ledge – January 27
Not that documentary movie a couple of years ago about a man walking on a tightrope. It’s a Sam Worthington starring thriller that looks like the old movie, the Negotiator. Could be a good movie.
No, I have no interest in seeing:
The Devil Inside – January 6
Someone gets possessed by the devil, and frightening things happen. I swear, I’ve seen this movie already. Not worth theatre admission.
Joyful Noise – January 13
Who? Never heard of it. Who’s in it? Let’s see … Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah. Next!
Haywire – January 20
Female Mixed Martial Artist Gina Carano’s feature film debut. I’ll wait until Netflix. Still can’t forgive Randy Couture’s rendition of the Scorpion King sequel nonsense.
Red Tails – January 20
Another World War Two movie about pilots starring Cuba Gooding Jr. Don’t care.
One for the Money – January 27
The 2005 movie with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey? No. It’s with Katherine Heigl and it’s based on those Janet Evanovich novels. There’s not a pole long enough for me to poke at that.
