The Death of Rick Sobo

Friday, July 17th, 2009

So the wonderful group of friends that I have are an enjoyable group. One of my friends since high school, none other than the famous Nikk Bobo wrote a short story entitled “The Death of Rick Sobo” The story is completely and entirely hilarious. In our singles ward about five years ago we decided to have an Oscar night. We decided that we would make an adaptation of the story. The following is the results. I know the acting is horrible, granted, my friend TJ does an amazing job as the evil Garth. The special effects are bad as well. I hope you enjoy the movie as much as I do.

If you would like to read the original short story fell free to, you can find it here.

Jonesbuster needs our help!!

Monday, June 1st, 2009

In an unfortunate turn of events, the owners of Jonesbuster are having financial difficulties. As a result the service that they have offered called Jonesbuster has now gone from being free to costing one dollar.

As someone who loves this service (and enjoys it quite often) I feel that it is my duty to help keep Jonesbuster alive! Therefore I am starting a donation fund. All proceeds to this donation fund will be given to the Jonesbuster Fondation to allow the continue of free rentals. Please help us keep this precious resource alive, click the donate button on the right! Every little bit helps!

Movie Review: Taken

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

We borrowed the movie “Taken” from JonesBuster. I must say that JonesBuster has a wonderful selection of movies, I highly recommend them. We watched in Monday Evening after our daughter went to bed. The tension built immediately. They did a wonderful job keeping you on the edge of the seat. Overall the movie was great, I loved it. There were a couple of disturbing scenes, mostly when “Peter” gets hit by a truck. I have also heard comments about the main character being too brutal to the bad guys, though I must say, that if I were in his position, I don’t know if I would be very kind and loving to them either. Suffice to say, I recommend the film, but top those who are a little older, definitly not for your 12 year old.

Movie Review: Star Trek

Monday, May 11th, 2009

I just got a new job, in order to get that new job I had to interview all over the place. One of the places I interviewed at was called Digicert. They still haven’t filled the position that I applied for, but apparently the owner likes to keep “good relations” with everyone. So they rented a movie theater and sent out invitations to see the new Star Trek movie. How can any one refuse a free movie. Besides, a free Star Trek movie, even better!

Overall the movie was fun. It was quite action packed and did a pretty good job building the story and developing characters. The special effects are really good as well. I know a few people that have issues with time travel, so they probably won’t like the film, but for those that can look past the time paradoxs, I think you will enjoy the movie.

The only complaint that I have with the story, is that I don’t feel like Nero had much of a position to hate Spok as much as he did. I don’t want to say much more than that, otherwise I’ll give to much away. Let me know what you think of the film.

Movie Review: Lady in the Water

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

This film was quite interesting to me. I had to wait a while before seeing it. My wife has a hard time watching potentially scary movies, and this one looked to scary for her. So while she was at a bridal shower, I jumped on the opportunity to watch the movie.

Overall the story was cool and the director did a good job exposing portions of it at a time. The director also did a pretty good job of leading me in one direction, and then all of a sudden I had come to the wrong conclusion. I felt part of the movie, because the characters in the film experienced the same thing.

Some of the special effects seemed weak at times, but the story of the movie made up for those portions of the film. Overall I would give it three stars. Hope you enjoy it as well. Let me know what you thought of the film.

Iron Man Review

Monday, May 19th, 2008

I have been incredibly excited for this summer to come. Why is that you may ask? Well, there are several very exciting movies coming out in the next few months. I saw Iron Man last week, and I must say, overall I was very impressed. The special effects were great. The script was well written (a few of the comic book movies have had some dumb lines). Everyone that I have talked to has enjoyed the film. Even the wifes of my friends and co-workers have enjoyed it. This isn’t just your typical super hero comic book movie. It is fun for all. I recommend you watch it and, make sure that you stay through the credits. There is a scene with Nick Fury, I know of several people that were confused by this scene. But this leaves the door open for a lot of really good things.

Cloverfield Review

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Being as how I am heavily opinionated, I decided to write a review about the newly released on DVD film Cloverfield. It is produced by J.J. Abrams. It took a while to get used to the HandiCam style filming, (similar to The Blair Witch Project) but I eventually decided that I enjoyed it. To sum up the movie, I have three words to describe the movie: Lame, Lame, Lame. (more…)

The Adventures of Dixon Hill

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

In high school, my group of friends and I decided to start a “company” to take care of all of our group projects. We called the “company” Nikk’s Basement Productions (In honor of the location all the work was done). We called it a company, but it was mostly for the fun of it. We compiled several projects and spent a lot of late nights in Nikk’s basement working on these projects. (more…)
