The Naked Gun (1988)

The Naked Gun

I am not sure if this was the first time I watched this movie. I had it marked as seen at IMDB (with a 8/10) and at iCheckMovies as well. Nevertheless, I did not remember it, so it was fun to watch again. For people that like Aeroplane movies, or Top Secret, this is similar. Of course they are stupid jokes most of the time. But it is fun.

Broken Sword 5

Broken Sword 5

I was a backer at KickStarter for Broken Sword 5 and I would back a Broken Sword 6 if they even think of that. I like adventures. I recall the first ones I played, like Space Quest. They helped a lot on learning English. I know it is nor perfect, but it helped a lot. This new type of adventures are mouse oriented. You listen to the characters, and if you want, you might read what characters say. But your iteration is with the mouse, acting on specific places of the screen. That makes these games a little more restricted.

Regarding Broken Sword 5, I would say it is smaller than previous games. Or that, or I am older, and it seems smaller to me. Also, it seems more simple. Usually you do not need to leave the current scene for your actions and continue in the game. Nevertheless, I had some difficulties in three or four moments. One because of my lack of English lexicon, other because my MacBook Pro wasn’t with enough contrast, other because there was a little detail in the drawing that I did not notice, and just once because I wasn’t thinking correctly in-game.

The story is, again, about religion. But that isn’t relevant. It is interesting, and you get engaged on it. It is not a linear story, leaving always a little of surprise. It also as some good jokes. From time to time I get tired of the dialogues, but probably that’s just me

The Big Bang Theory – Season 4

The Big Bang Theory – Season 4

The cool things about The Big Bang Theory are maintained: we have Kaley Cuoco (Penny) and Geek Jokes. And things get better. Now, we have Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) and Aarti Mann (Priya). Ok, Mayim Bialik can also be cute, but not as Amy Fowler.

News on this season? A few. Leonard breaks with Penny, and gets along with Priya. Howard continues with Bernadette, and Sheldon keeps the intellectual relationship with Amy. And the poor Raj keeps alone… or mostly.

Keeps being funny to watch. Preparing for season 5 soon or later.

Allo! Allo! (Season 3)

Allo! Allo!

Allo! Allo!

No news on this Season, and I do not think there will be any in the future. The jokes are mostly the same, over and over again. From time to time a new one appears, but they are rare. But then, the English policeman talking in strange “French” has always some interesting results, like saying Herr Flick is dressed up like a “Roman Catholic Farter”.

In other news, do you know what is that metallic object in the picture, in the bottom right? Yeah, a Pisseur. Very cool and handy. To piss, of course.

The Big Bang Theory – S03

Well, to change a little, this time I do not share a picture of Penny, but of this pervert scientist. Let me know where to find one like this.

Regarding this series, the main idea is Penny and Leonard being committed in some kind of relationship. Of course that ends mostly at the end of the season, just in a way the next season can grow in interest somehow. Other than that, there are mainly two episodes I really liked. The first one if the one presented in the picture above. It was fun. The second one explaining how Sheldon and Leonard met and agreed to those apartment rules.

Also, in this series we know that Sheldon likes Ubuntu. So, not so smart as we think he is…

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. – S01E01

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 – The Serpent’s Curse – Part I

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.

Lego Digital Designer – Missing Parts

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.
