The Wolverine (2013)
First the relevant question: where does he buy those clothes that survive such explosions? I might be interested.
The movie is OK. Nothing brilliant. But enjoyable for the kind of movie you expect from a Marvel hero. There are some flaws, even in the extended version, that make me sad. Also, there are some inexplicable details that I would like to see more clearly. For instance, [spoilers alert!] what would that Viper gain helping the old and dying human? That is not explained anywhere.
The best thing in this movie, and for the first time in this blog, is not a girl. But that bed where the old guy is dying. That seems great. I one to test one of those.
Machete Kills (2013)
What the fu*k? No, really! I enjoyed the first movie, but this one is a piece of sh*t. I can find a couple of good jokes, like the gun that “turns the sh*t inside out” or even the penis gun shown above. Then, well, you have Lady GaGa, and seeing a guy turning into Lady GaGa can make you smile. Other than that, stupidity after stupidity. The story is dumb, characters are dumb, even the gore is dumb. And no, I will not watch the next one, that promises yet more dumbness. Even Jessica Alba disappears right in the beginning of the movie. Rated 3/10 @ imdb.
Duarte & Cia.
Sorry, this one is going in Portuguese. Not that relevant to comment on a Portuguese Series that (as far as I know) doesn’t have English subtitles available
1985… tinha eu 7 anos. Não, na altura não achava qualquer piada a esta série. Mas lembro-me vagamente de a ver passar pela televisão. Outro dia na tentativa de arranjar algo com que a minha mãe se pudesse entreter, já que na televisão nacional não passa nada de jeito, arranjei alguns episódios desta série. Infelizmente a minha mãe não lhe achou grande piada. Mas decidi ver, de qualquer modo.
Não posso dizer que seja nada de fenomenal. O episódio é demasiado longo para a história que é, com algumas cenas demasiado lentas e enfadonhas. Mas por outro lado, tem algumas piada giras. Talvez veja mais alguns episódios para me ir entretendo.
Broken Sword 5
I just finished the first part of Broken Sword 5. In case you do not know, this game was funded using the Kickstarter website. I can not recall how much I donated to the project, but it is great to see that the game ended in the market.
The game continues in the same line as previous episodes. We have Niko, a girl, and George, the boy, trying to solve mysteries. In this first part, mostly the assassination of that guy, in the floor.
The story is not anything revolutionary. The puzzles are mostly accessible (at least for me). There is a hint system that I used only twice. I think the first time I would not need to use it if I was more fluent in English. For the second time, yeah, I needed a little the hint.
For now, expecting the second part. My main question now is: can I uninstall the first part, or do I need it to play the second? If anybody knows the answer, I am welcome.
There are lot of missing parts in Lego Digital Designer. Although recent bricks might appear in future versions of LDD, I think some older ones will not. I did not find, yet, a resource with missing pieces, or some substitutes. Nevertheless, I found some full designs that include some substitutions that I found useful. Therefore, I decided to create this post where I’ll add substitutes to some LEGO parts.

Not the usual Classical Concert. A five-man “orchestra”, playing all kind of instrument, mostly percussion, but including some strings and wind instruments, and some non-classic instruments, like Cereals, Radio Antenna and other. Musics by Ennio Morricone. A fun concert to watch.
“knock knock knock! Penny? knock knock knock! Penny? knock knock knock! Penny?”
Most people like The Big Bang Theory because of Sheldon. Yeah, he is fun, and most of the episodes are dedicated to him. But of course I like better Penny cuteness. Ok, Ok, looking to the four guys, a think I am more like Leonard, liking girls and not having the guts to invite them. But in the other hand, I think Raj Koothrappali is very, very cool.
I am quite behind in the available episodes/seasons, but I am looking forward for the next seasons.
Girls (season 2)
Girls, sex, drugs, love, hate, money, job, sex, more girls, more sex, and should be able to explain what the series and this season is about. The usual, the story of four girl friends (that from time to time forget the friendship) that do sex, have boy friends, change boy friends, do casual sex, change boy friends, try drugs, change boy friends, do some more sex, lose the job, get a job, lose the job again.
I can’t say I love this series, but it is interesting to watch. Not just because there is not that much censure, but because it reminds me of some life problems.
Chloe Bennet @ Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Shit! This is boring to write. S.H.I.E.L.D. Gah!
Now, kidding aside, the series is nothing brilliant for now (first episode). I am interested in watching it for the Marvel seal. I hope it gets better. Other than that, a lot of technology, some super-powers and cute girls. Namely this Chloe Bennet is just… beautiful. So, hope to have a better understanding of the quality of the series later.
Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Yep, a screenshot of a bridge for the Sherlock Holmes movie. Why? I just love this industrial revolution scenario. Oh, and in school I drawn a lot of bridges under construction. Not sure why my teacher did not like it.
Anyway, that is a relevant part of the movie, but not (usually) the reason why you watch a movie. First, you have Iron Man… erm.. Sherlock Holmes that is fun, unlike the usual boring ones. This time Watson is the very boring guy. The story is acceptable. No big mysteries. Just the deductions are nice. Not excessive clever, just observation, mostly.
But there is a scene where I almost choke without air, laughing out loud and almost rolling on the floor Yeah, if you watched it, you guessed, the fight between Sherlock and that French dude, each one asking for some seconds, and the French dude flying with electric shocks. LOL!
