Fallout Monopoly

Fallout monopoly

Due to its ever-present popularity, the Fallout series is getting its own version of the beloved family game, Monopoly.

Set to release this November, Bethesda, owners of the franchise, have announced that the ever growing Monopoly brand will grab hold of all five Fallout games, including Fallout 4 of course.

This nerd-tastic version will come out the same month as the new game, which will sure make Fallout fans extra excited. The news is that the game is a Gamestop exclusive in the U.S. and there is no word yet on whether it will come to other territories.

So when you are at Gamestop picking up the blockbuster video game this November 10th, be sure to consider this awesome version of Monopoly.

War and Peace Mini Series

Adapting Leo Tolstoy’s novel War and Peace would seem a daunting task. Considering books half its size have been divided into 2 part movies you would think that War and Peace would be hard pressed to fit into a 4 part mini series. But BBC and Weinstein Company will air on lifetime, A&E networks and History channel just that. The scheduled series is set for sometime in January. The series will focus on three characters Pierre (Paul Dano), Natasha (Lily James), and Andrei (James Norton). It will focus on the theme of love and loss.

I am both excited and skeptical of this. Can you really do this story justice with a four part mini series? I guess time will tell. I can tell you this as fall rolls around I plan to get the book and read it before the mini series starts.

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ’F’ Review

Dragon Ball Z

I got early access to this movie so I figured I would watch it. Now to be honest I am not that big of a fan of Dragon Ball Z but I should explain that I was exposed to Dragon Ball Z when it was on TV. This movie dooes so much better at telling the story than the tv show.

If you are a fan of Dragon Ball Z then most likely you know what this movie is about but if not here is a quick synopsis. One peaceful day on Earth, two remnants of Frieza’s army named Sorbet and Tagoma arrive searching for the Dragon Balls with the aim of reviving Frieza. They succeed, and Frieza subsequently seeks revenge on the Saiyans.

So yes you get the return of Frieza. Now normally I would rather them develop a new character that to resurrect an old one. For the most part this brings a level of familiarity to the movie. I would consider myself a very casual fan having watched maybe a dozen episode at best of the tv series. Still this film was easy access to someone like me that had limited experience with the series. I knew enough about Frieza to know he was a bad guy and I knew that the Saiyans were the only hope to defeat him. Granted a lot of things with the powers of the Saiyans was lost on me but all in all I was able to pick right up with this story.

Speaking of the story it was better than I expected. The grunting was limited, one of my main complaints about the tv series. I remember an episode that was mostly grunting for 20 minutes that included the this time on Dragon Ball Z and the next time on Dragon Ball Z sections of the episode. The story following the resurrection of Frieza was good, the fight scenes were also well done though I enjoyed the massive battle more than the final battle. The animation is what you would expect from this series, which is fine.

Overall I enjoyed this more than I ever would have expected. It held my attention and I actually think that I may watch it again once it comes out on dvd. As far as watching it in theaters, well I don’t think I would go that far. I enjoyed it but not enough that I would invest going to the theater to watch. I will save that experience for those that are fans. I have not seen any of the other movies done with these characters so I really don’t have anything to compare it to. I just can say that I enjoyed it and plan to watch it again in the future. If nothing else it has made me want to watch the other movies and I might even give the series a try again.

Rating 4 out of 5

Revisiting the Original Fast and Furious







With the new Furious 7 movie just released a couple months ago, and probably on its way to DVD soon, I wanted to take a look back at the original. The Fast and the Furious came out all the way back in 2001. Crazy, huh? Nostalgic memories were triggered watching this film. I still remember the first time I watched Dom Torreto get into what is easily the best car in the whole movie, his dad’s 1970 Dodge Charger. Once the music in this scene started, you knew that things were about to go down.

Some people might disagree, but this is easily the best film in the franchise. The movie had a great plot, awesome characters, relationships, outstanding action, and what the series seems to have switched gears from, RACING. If I were to talk to somebody who has never seen the original, he most likely would not believe me if I said the movie was truly based on racing and a family who raced against people and time. In fact, probably the best quote in the whole movie is about racing and how it has changed the life of Dom. He says, “I live my life a quarter mile at a time. Nothing else matters: not the mortgage, not the store, not my team and all their bullshit. For those ten seconds or less, I’m free.” Everything is a race to him; he is just trying to cross that finish line.

Although Dom is my favorite character, a Fast and the Furious review cannot be without the mention of Paul Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner. Walker is fantastic in this role, and there is no other actor that can play this character so well. In fact, Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Eminem were all considered for this role, but Paul Walker is really the only person I see playing Brian. It is sad to know that Walker will not play the character again.

The movie takes place in a world of racing, where the night life is racing a ten second quarter-mile and winning cash for it. Brian is an under-cover cop, and he is trying to get the low-down on who is robbing trucks in the middle of the night. The robbers use 4 Honda Civics suped up the way only racers would have them. At the beginning of the movie, viewers don’t really know Brian is a cop, because he genuinely seems like a person wanting to get in the racing scene. But, the people who are at the center of this scene, the Torreto family, are the best suspects for the crime. Brian does eventually make his way into the hearts of the family, especially his love interest with Dom’s younger sister Mia, played by Jordana Brewster, all the while trying to uncover the secrets of the family. There are obviously bumpy roads throughout the movie, but eventually things hit the fan, and all hell “brakes” loose.

Again I say, this is the best film of the series, and I say that so naturally because it is the first film of a franchise that has never disappointed. It is also the film that started these beloved characters, and is one of the few that stuck to racing at its core. On a side note, Vin Diesel does make this movie. I remember watching 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift and realizing there was a character missing. I am so glad they brought Dom back, because, although Walker’s performance and character could have kept the series alive, there is nothing like the hot headed Toretto making a mess out of things.

This film in my book is easily a 4.5 out of 5 and climbing every time I watch it. It is easily my favorite of the 7 film franchise.
