I wana BE a Ghostbuster!

Warning: Don’t like Spoilers? Don’t read this then!!

Okay, so this is turning out to be a once in a while thing and that is totally fine with me. Not really enough time in the world I suppose, and there are other better blogs to read out there. So what have I been up to over the past month? Well let’s see…
I recently read and watched Shutter Island. Leme tell yah folks that was some good shit! Leonardo DeCaprio has never been big with me, but he did a helluva job. Oh I got the book Drood. Very very very long… still reading it, so we shall see about that one. Saw the movie Legion. Meh… wasn’t what I expected. A little too close to The Prophecy only without the benefit of Christopher Walken. I mean the dude that played Gabriel was pretty awesome, but still… meh… OH but wait, there was Wolfman!
Wolfman is my fave Universal Classic monster folks, my fave movie out of the bunch being House of Frankenstein. So you could imagine what I did when I found out that they were remaking it with no less than Anthony Hopkins, Benicio Del Toro AND Hugo Weaving. Yum Yum! I know I bitch about fanboys who watch movies because of certain actors, but there is a time and a place for everything kids and the time for Me to SEE that movie was OPENING WEEKEND! You will NOT be disappointed. It was truly a blast! The thing I appreciated the most was that the actors DID thier own wolf makeup. And the wolf getup is just, well just aswome.
Bought a copy of Zombieland! HA HA! Gawd what a great film! While my husband and I watched the movie with the commentary we came to learn that the filmmakers are not all that “into” Zombies. And I cannot help but wonder if that is what makes the movie so unique. It definitely stands out in the genre and has a life of its own. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that it started life out as a TV show pilot. CBS opted OUT of making it. Thank you boys!
But I will tell you something, when we went and saw it at the theatre I thought I was gona pee when Bill Murray showed up. You folks have got to understand, if Zomblies didn’t take up most of my love in the line of cinema material, then the one movie I would probably obsess over (more than I do already) would be Ghostbusters!!
I sooo wana BE a Ghostbuster! I have been perusing certain fan sites, looking at different homemade uniforms and such. Boy, those folks really have their shit together. Sister and I have been tossing around the idea of doing a Sontaran outfit for nerd conventions. You know, cause we’re short and look alike… tee hee… but if I had my way I would totally BE a Ghostbuster! I have an Orc outfit I wear to Renfaire every year, and that is loads of fun. It was also a lot of hard work to make so I figure making something as specific as a Ghostbusters outfit wouldn’t be too hard? We shall see yes? If I get around to doing it, I will certainly keep you all posted!

Fucking Delicious!!!

Okay, I have to point out a game that I have been hooked on playing over and over and over again! House of the Dead: Overkill is exactly what it sounds like! It is an awesome addition to an already awesome franchise. I LOVE rail games! I love the idea of not having to move around and just shoot shoot shoot and that is all there is in this game. Unlike the Res Evil games you don’t even get to play with the scenery that much, but with the way the zomblies heads explode, you wont worry about that at all!
Oh and then there is the smack talk! If you listen to Twinsanity at all you will know that sister and I have pretty dirty mouths. This game puts all our filth to SHAME! And I LOVE IT!! I am soo trying not to do reviews of stuff. There are so many sites out there that do that better, as I have said before. However, this game is like sooo totally kewl, sooo monstrously awesome that I HAD to let folks know about it!
OMG! I haven’t even began to talk about the music! Jesus, I sound like a girl, squealing about this shit but leme tell you, the music is totally BOSS!! Okay, so that’s it. House of the Dead: Overkill. Go out and buy it. Don’t just rent it cause you are gona wana have it to play whenever you get the urge to slaughter some zombie scum! And I seem to get that urge A LOT!
