Sorry its been a while since our last post, life's been pretty hectic, lots of late night coursework sessions and such, but we've decided to start up again and hopefully keep it consistent this time, let's begin with something thats been coming from my speakers non stop recently.
Like any other Hip-Hop fan, I can't get enough Wu Tang. After I'd been through the official albums I began exploring for something new, and there are two albums I found which are definitely worth giving a listen to. The First, 'Wu Tang Clan Vs. The Beatles - Enter the Magical Mystery Chambers', I just can't get enough of the album, check it out: Download
The next I havent been able to listen to the whole way through but occasionally it will come on shuffle and I'll find myself stopping what im doing to check whats playing. 'Wu Tang & Jimi Hendrix -Black Gold', not quite as good as the other album but the track 'Whats Happenin' has quickly become one of my favourites. Download
Sorry it's been a while since our last post, I just finished my first year of university so understandably I've been on a bit of a mad one. But now we're back and to reign it in we have an awesome new trailer for the upcoming Muppets movie starring Jason Segel of How I met you mother fame and The Fighter's Amy Adams, not to mention a ton of cameos and of course all the ruddy Muppets you could hope for. By the looks of things this film is everything a Muppet fan could hope for, and so as a big muppet lover I am psyched.
We've now got our first glimpse at the upcoming Inbetweeners movie, it's only a teaser trailer and there isn't much to it. I've not been on a "lads" holiday myself but plenty of my mates have (and i'm an avid Sun, sex and suspicious parents fan), and it seems to be an honest interpretation of Malia's strip. I'm sure the film will do very well and won't disappoint inbetweeners fans, I loved series 1, but after that I felt the quality and humour just didn't match up, but hopefully this will be better.
Last week I took a trip down to my local cinema to check out X-Men First Class with my friends, unfortunately it was after a big night out and my friend fainted in the car park so we didn't make it. Hangover 2 was the next best option, or so I thought. When I saw the first Hangover film in cinemas I laughed, alot, which is strange for me because I'm not a big public laugher. Hangover 2 didn't have me laughing, i cracked a smile once or twice but that was about it. The way I see it, this hangover sequel could have gone one of three ways; 1)The lads take another trip to Vegas, perhaps to see Stu's stripper wife, which to another wild one 2)A different bachelor party takes a trip to vegas, maybe one or two returning characters but mostly a new cast or 3)Recovering from a hangover in a different country. All solid options, if you change it up a little bit, but the exact same story? Why did they feel the need to lose another friend? Why not lose something else? A wedding ring? Plane tickets home? but another person, come on. That was a key issue for me, but it wasnt the only similarity, baby replaced by monkey ("hey guys look a baby masturbating", "Hey guys look a monkey giving head"), more gangster negotiaion,they even thought they had found their guy only to discover its not actually him, it was like paint by numbers.
Zach Galifianakis's Alan was the shining star in the first one but in this he came across less child like and more seriously disturbed individual, which leads me to think that maybe the wolfpack exists only in Alan's mind. The film also suffered from the worst cameo in history when Mike Tyson sings his heart out. This film seriously disappointed me and lacked the originality of the first film. That being said Bangkok was a great setting, but they didn't use it to their full advantage. I've heard talks of Amsterdam being the setting of the third film which is great I just prey that they adapt the story a little, I like the idea of them all waking up seperate and following them trying to find each other, but maybe that's just me.
