YGN: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Review

Now that Mat and Nat have seen the film what do they think?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Review by YourGeekNews:

Now that Matt has read all the books along with Nat, the tag-team fury of two Potter-heads trying to review Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as the best film in the series before going on a tirade about the faithlessness of adaptation… well it might just blow your mind as much as it did ours.In any event, we’ve never loved and hated a Potter film more than this one, so keep giving us YOUR thoughts, since we’re all the kind of geeks who were sitting there at 12:01 when the lights went down and the applause began!~Matt + Nat

CC2Ks Big Ross: Advance Review: G.I. Joe – The Rise of COBRA…

GIJOEPosterCC2Ks Big Ross gives a review:

…As indicated by the title, this movie doesn’t tell the origin of G.I.JOE so much as it tells the origin of COBRA.  The G.I.JOE team is firmly established and operational at the film’s start, and COBRA as the terrorist organization everyone loves to hate doesn’t exist yet.  Even so, James McCallum/Destro (Christopher Eccleston), The Baroness (Sienna Miller), Zartan (Arnold Vosloo), and the mysterious Doctor (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) are in the final stages of a sinister plot for world domination (if you think that’s a spoiler, obviously you’ve never watched the old G.I.JOE cartoons.  Attempts at world domination are their bread and butter.).  The world’s only hope to stop them is (you guessed it) G.I.JOE.

We’re introduced to this international military force (they’re not just real *American* heroes anymore) through new members Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans).  They team up with Scarlett (Rachel Nichols), Heavy Duty (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Breaker (Said Taghmaoui), and Snake Eyes (Ray Park) under the command of General Hawk (Dennis Quaid) to try and thwart Destro, et al’s evil plans.  I’m not going to get into anymore specific details than that; I don’t want to spoil this movie for anyone.  I will tell you that the plot is big (it’s as convoluted as Transformers 2, if not more so), dumb (there are several moments where logic goes out the window and you just have to go with it), and (as I already mentioned) the fate of the world hangs in the balance, i.e. it’s exactly what you should expect for a summer action movie.

But really, this movie works in pretty much all the ways a summer action movie is supposed to work…(GO READ THE REST HERE)

Hank Paulson on the Hill…

Reminder, here is where we were almost a year ago now, the world was ending and Hank was in a sea of flotsam and jetsom trying to keep us I like what he did, hell no, am I glad TOTUS and Timmeh werent alone at the reins then? Hell yes!

Update: Video as it is available…

Watching them grill Hank on the Hill

Live feed here

IMO this is bad, very very bad..

This is what they would do with a CIA investigation of ‘Torture’…go back and question shxt they knew about and never opened their mouths about before to look good….

They are going back and questioning every aspect of decisions they KNEW at the time were being madem, that they rolled over for..

After 9/11, after the collapse of Lehman, things were not ‘normal’

Never thought I could feel bad for Hank but I do..

This is a witch hunt and a kangaroo court and a clusterfark all rolled into one…

These people have NO CLUE about the financial system, and the things they are allowing Team TOTUS to do RIGHT NOW IMO far outweigh what Hank did with TARP and BofA and Merrill…

Shit Chrysler Senior Debtholders were threatened a few months ago, none of these Congress critters made a peep..

Pelosi and Paulson and Reid, Oh My!

These are the same tools who LOVED them some Hank in October of 2008…

Hank does not look well….

The Critters are frankly really interrogating him at this point…cutting him off…beating him up and bullying him in fact with emails he has never seen…this is a guy they schmoozed like crazy, a guy who like it or not saved the system form collapsing, I do not agree with everything they did and didnt want TARP but we HAVE A FINANCIAL SYSTEM TODAY b/c Hank did something, unlike the Congress who was clueless and led by Nancy who was busy interfering with national elections and not minding the store….

Dennis Kucinich has bene on a MISSION to get Ken Lewis fired and BofA shareholders a nifty lawsuit, he is on CNBC now attacking Paulson….
