Downloading Now 07/08

Every once in awhile I go through a huge downloading phase and I am at one of them. Most of these files range from 4 GB to 8 BG, and some a little more. I like having all the movies I do enjoy in 1080p, they are very clear and crisp, there just isn’t anything to substitute high quality movies. Now there is the issue of bandwidth and having enough to get all the material you want at one go.

Review: 21


I was always hearing some buzz around this movie, but I never really looked into the reviews. I always liked Kevin Spacey movies and didn’t think this would be very different. Its about how some MIT super Black Jack team took the Las Vegas Casinos for all they had through their perfect system. They were good with numbers and Black Jack is figuring out these numbers to win. Kevin Spacey is the great professor at MIT, and he works with some of the geniuses to make this team. The movie is very interesting but it feels like it just didn’t piece well together, there was a lot to say and a lot going on but I felt that movie could have been done a lot better. It was entertaining but nothing special.

Torrent Peak

I always try to organize my downloads, and they do get organized once I have finished my downloads. And that lasts a maximum of a day or two, then things get messed up once again when I add to the download list. I have been downloading a lot of anime these days, and I always download the latest HD movies out there, no matter how old. Another issue I’m facing right now is my torrent uploads, I have to leave my torrents on to keep my ratio up, and it has reached the point where my hard drive has gotten filled without me noticing it. So I have a few porblems now, my files are all messed up and need reorganization, and now my main hard drive is filled up and it only has 7.95 GB left from 698 GB (750 GB Drive).

HD Movies I’m downloading:

  • Batman Begins 1080P
  • The Spiderwick Chronicles 720P
  • Be King Rewing 720P
  • Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade 720P
  • Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark 720P
  • HULK 1080P

Comic Movies 2009

Since Spiderman and X-Men’s success I think Hollywood has at last tapped into a Genre which has fresh story lines for the picking. And now every year there are more and more super hero movies for us to enjoy. I hope it just keeps on growing, and for this year Iron Man was above and beyond our expectations and there is still more to look forward to this year. And in 2009 there are a few good movies coming up, the sooner they come out the better.

  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine
  • Transformers 2
  • Watchmen
  • Dragonball
  • G.I. Joe

Review: Fools Gold

This turned out to be an interesting movie, it didn’t do well in the box office but it isn’t a bad movie. The Spanish Fleet carrying a queen’s dowry was caught in a storm with her gold sinking in the ocean. Matthew McConaughey is a treasure hunter stuck in the Bahamas, he is a complete mess and doesn’t know how to take care of himself. Kate Hudson who fell in love with this crazy man because they just get carried away, and she wants to be him with a frying pan because of his attitude. Because of their funny combination its just funny throughout, but there a few parts which were uncalled for, still remained entertaining though. Donald Sutherland played an odd role in the movie, and the story line is short and sweet so it is worth a watch.

Just a Few Days

Its always fun to get these types of trips together, some of the guys proposed a quick trip to Dubai to get a few things done. That was last week and it tumbled into a movie filled weekend and a change of scenery. I think it will do some good to get a quick break from the usual trend of things.

I want to see two movies while I’m there:

  • Indiana Jones
  • Speed Racer

And probably what ever else is going to be out. One thing I am really looking forward to is the riblets from The Meat Company, it tastes really good and it gets really messy. The funny part is that we are flying Kuwait Airways most probably so there is no clue exactly when or if the plane is going to fly, KA doesn’t have the best track record.

I always liked this type of patchy art work, and this painting has my favorite. They sell it as a normal print canvas or you can have them commission the painting to be painted. I wouldn’t know where to put this painting in my house, but one thing is for sure, it is a piece that every fan should have. The only thing going through my mind when I look at it is “WE ARE SPARTAAAAANNSSS”

Movies Looking Forward to For 2008

There are a lot of good movies coming out this summer, especially from the comic genre. Most of these movies can’t be watched in Kuwait’s cinema because they are going to be chopped up one way or another. I love watching movies in the theaters, its just different then at home so hopefully we will be able to catch most of them in theaters. Any movies to do with comics are always at the top of my list, they have been doing justice to a lot of comic movies over the years so I have high expectations for Iron Man, The Dark Knight, The Incredible Hulk, HellBoy 2, and Iron Man.

Review: Awake

Hayden Christensen pulls of this role perfectly, an heir to a multi-billion dollar family fortune with his mother in New York, but the one fault he has is a weak heart. He leads a tough life of a powerful business man still living with his mother who is equally powerful and sly. Hayden is faced with an issue and realizes that he has to have a heart transplant and they have found the perfect donor after a year and a half on the list. While this is going on Hayden has been romantically involved with Jessica Alba for sometime but he only has to admit this to his mother which is a harder task then could be expected. Before going for his surgery, he admits it to his mother that he is in love with her as well as wanting to get engaged to her. The surgery is about to go underway, when he is put under he is still aware of whats going on but unable to move. The pace picks up and each actor plays their role perfectly, it was a good movie to start but just kept on getting better and better. Pieces come together towards the end and you are shocked to what was originally thought out. A very good movie which throws an unexpected twist towards the end, and there is a part which makes is a bit difficult to watch the screen but you still do.
