Is there Too Much CGI in Modern Movies?

Heya there WordPressers/loiterers and bloging peeps!

 

It’s not entirely the fault of Yours Truly that I haven’t been here. To the point,

I give you my intended LAST WEEK’s Thrilling Cinema Thursday on today’s Tuesday….why? (Read below ze pic…I promise it’s brief! ;) )

CGI Van Helsing Has CGI in Film gone too far

(Don’t worry, she’s not nekkid, and it’s fake!)

Yeah, I’ve been battling the Youtube Copyright bot for a week to get this final segment of Infinite Geekiness Episode 4 up.

Infinite Geekiness Podcast With Jimmy Devious

(In short, Universal sucks and is running a video clips racket IMO :P )

So you should probably go check out the video RIGHT NOW…because who knows if the oversensitive copyright-protect droids will let stay there by tomorrow. Run run, quick like a bunny! (or just watch right here!)

Bottom line, I really think movie studios don’t have a clue how to deal with the relative rise in sales of games and the correlative decline in ticket sales/butts in the seats when compared with said video games. Sooooo they deliberately make movies that look like “videa’games” to appeal to said gamer demographic.

It sucks. :P Who wants to sit and watch something that LOOKS like a video game in its special effects…when you can just go play a real one instead?

Also, if memory serves correctly, wasn’t the T-Rex in Jurassic Park an all-CGI creation? If so, why does something that was made BACK IN 1993 look so much MORE realistic than stuff squatted out in 2014?

Annnyhoo, these are the things I think about. You’re welcome. :)

If all goes well, I should have another Vikings Thorsday this week as well…

Stay peeping and sharp with your shapie peepers!

That is all.

Vikings Thorsday: Will Season 3 Be The End For Ragnar?

Heya W’pressers!

How’s it hanging?

(Did I just type that? ;) )

Jimmy D’s been looking for a replacement TV fandom-ish segment ever since the end of BN and my regular Burn Notice Debriefing Friday As you can probably see (or read) I think I’ve got the sucker locked up! Presenting…

The place to hear some dorky Vikings fanboy blab about the show, and whatever else comes out of his piehole!

Kicking off this first installment over at my Ytube channel, I pose “curious” questions about the show’s upcoming Season 3 on History Feb 19,  (aka NEXT WEEK) most controversial of all, is this year Ragnar Lodbrok’s last ride in the series?

There are some interesting images in the trailers for Vikings fans.

Watch and listen to my “brilliant” blog gabbage analysis and..uhh…thoughts on it right here…

Looks like things are starting to get intriguing and backstabby…HMMmmmm…

What do you think, fellow fan in the shield wall…

What are you expecting to see in the new season of Vikings? 

Or…what would you LIKE to see?

That is all for now folks. Also, if you’re on the Ytube. be sure to watch to ze end and SUBSCRIBE!

Gracias. Hopefully, I shall also have some new stuff for you on the morrow here as well!

Smellyalater bloghommies! ;)

Star Wars The Force Awakens: Better Later Than Never

Hey there Pressers, Jimmy D back again!

 

(Hoooooly crap! TWO posts in less than 2 weeks? Throw a freakin’ party! ;) )

 

It seems my inability to even keep to my own blog-resolutions knows

No bounds of slackery. :P

 

Still, I’m doing better already than my posting level last year…

 

Annnyway, the first episodic installment video of Infinite Geekiness Episode 4 is up at my Youtube channel

 

Infinite Geekiness Podcast With Jimmy Devious

This time around is all about the Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens teaser-trailer-CGI-out-the-butt pleaser, and my thoughts on the upcoming trilogy.

Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens arrives December 2015

 

If you’re as overanalytical as I am you’ll adore it like chocolate-covered cornflakes.

 

Clickidy click over there,  you’ll be glad you did. (maybee)

 

 

That is all for now.

New Year Resolutions, Same Old Dorky

It's Monologue Monday at my blog
Hiya W-to-the-‘Presser folk once again.
How’s it hanging?
*question very rhetorical don’t bother answering.* :P
I’m going to keep this blogpost short and sweet (or is it sweet’n’petitie, unsure of the proper stale cliche’ here) because I’m really only NOW starting to bring my virtual presence back to life after many looooong months of stasis.
Daaaayuuum, that sounded sexy. Not.
Point is, I’m coming back, slowly but surely. I should have a new podcast eppie ( eppie= translated episode for the sane and not trying to be cool lol) coming forthwith to you hopefully by the end of the week. So, there’s that.
I also resolve to try to put up at least two blogposts in this thingimajig a week for all of 2015.
So far, half-good. Let’s see how long I keep to it folks/blog followers who are left/virtual drifters/carneys. Shall we make a bet on it?
(Nah, nevermind, I don’t actually have anything to bet…unless you enjoy eating packing peanuts…and orc blood ;) )
Annnyhooow, I’ve never been one to keep resolutions. Who cares if its a new year right? It ’tis but an arbitrary number on a calendar…much like government spending pledges and penis measurements. ;)
So that’s my first post of 2015…the old year is dead, long live the new one.
Random-blog-viewing-stranger, what are your thoughts on New Year Resolutions?
Keep’um? Ignore’um? Too drunk (on geekery) to care?
Lend me your thoughts. (Like you did me that leaf blower I still haven’t brought back…I know, I know but, it’s still sticky! )
Happy 2015.
Now, let us away to the kitchen, for some nachos…and orc blood covered packing peanuts.

The Sims 4 sucks

Hey, I know, how about another Total Silliness Tuesday?
 
This time a short video of funny “Famous Last Words” by a certain dude-bro-comedy duo from Comedy Central (NO, not THOSE two) Rhett and Link (AKA the white guys.)
 

You will be amused. Verily, you will…WATCH!

See, I told you. Now smile dangit…

Hank Hill Funny
 
 
What’s going in Jimmy D’s head today?
 
Well, it’s Tuesday, so of course you know I’m probably going to be taking it easy…and you thought right! :P
 
It’s time for another Total Silliness Tuesday!
 
For this week, a giggley-gem of a vid by a popular gent on Youtube who is known as Jaysumi the Soundboard Guy, or simply, “The Celeb Gamer.”
 
This time he slips America’s favorite animated redneck dweeb, Hank Hill of King Of The Hill into Battlefield 3.

Enjoy, or be an asinine jackass! ;)

Who couldn’t get a little smile or two out of that one!

That is all. Enjoy your Tuesday, carry on. :)

Never knew playing gawwd-dang viDEE-agames could be so much fun, I tellhu what!

The Greatest Horror Movie Quotes

Hellraiser Pinhead Funny
 
 
Hey all blogger friends, how’s it going?
 
What’s happening in Jimmy D’s head for this Monday? But of course, how about another awesome addition of Movie Quote Monday
 
And being as how it IS October, why not pick a vid some awesome guy did on the “Greatest Horror Movie Quotes Of All Time?”

You may be scared, but you KNOW you wanna watch! (Humor me. ;) lol )

Not bad, but I think he left one out…one of the best…

Too bad Thanksgiving doesn’t have as many cool themed movies worthy for quoting as Halloween huh? I can see it now if it did, though…
