I’m not much of a sports fan, never really have been.Â Â I think it goes back to when my older Brother T.J. would use football or any other sport, as an excuse to beat the crap out of me.Â Â But that’s a whole different story.Â Â
Somehow I end up watchingÂ the Super bowl every year.Â Â Â IÂ I used to watch “just for the commercials” but, Â over the past few years I think I’m developing a small appreciation for the game itself.Â Â Â Â What a fun game last night.Â Especially in theÂ 4th Quarter.Â Â Â
Â For a moment there IÂ thoughÂ Kurt Warner andÂ the Arizona Cardinals had it made… Then there was that catch by the Steelers.Â Â Â While I wasÂ hoping the Card’s would win,Â I have to admit that catch wasÂ amazing.Â Â Â Â Â
On top ofÂ the game itself, we were treated to a prettyÂ awesomeÂ look at this years upcoming movies.Â Â Â Â I want to saveÂ some of this discussion for this weeks show, but I wanted to give my impression on a couple of theÂ Movie Trailers that were broadcast.
First wasÂ “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen”.Â Â I wasn’t really blown away by theÂ teaser.Â Â Â The only thing I saw in it that made meÂ the slightest bit excited was what appears to be a glimpse ofÂ “Ravage”.Â Â Â If you grew up in the 80’s, and had the Soundwave Transformer, AKA the Boom Box.Â Â Â Â Ravage was one of theÂ Cassette Tapes that transformed into a panther like cat.Â Â Â That was theÂ very firstÂ Transformer I ever owned, and still one of my fav’s.Â Â Â Â Â Â I sure hope the nextÂ trailer has more substance to it…Â If you recall,Â when the first Transformer’s movie was released, thatÂ TrailerÂ didn’t really show anything….Â So there’s hope.
A few episodes back we mentioned Will Ferrell’sÂ “Land of the Lost” movie.Â Â I have to say, not bad.Â Â Â One of the things I really enjoyed about the TV show, was just how bad and cheaply made everything looked.Â Â Â AfterÂ letting the trailer sink in, I almost wonder if it is “Too well done”.Â Â Â Then again… Maybe not.Â Â Â
“Year One”- This oneÂ almost looks like a remake of Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits.Â Â Â Only withÂ “Stoners” instead of “Little People”… Looks funny.
My favorite trailer was the 3D “Monster’s VS. Aliens”.Â Â While I honestly am not too impressed with the over all look of the film, the story sounds fun and the voice talent should be great.Â Â Â I’m a sucker for 3D on TV.Â Â Even though for the most part, it really hasn’t been done well over broadcast TV.Â Â I must say it looked pretty good.Â Â Â
Tonight I’m really looking forward to the return of “Chuck” on NBC… Not only is the series starting back up, but It’ll be broadcast in 3D!!!Â Â Â I love that show.-Â Canman
