I watched Tron a couple of weeks ago. This is a movie where a Master Control Program is taking over. A former employee named Flynn wants to hack into MCP to get evidence that he wrote a bunch of video game programs there were stolen by the head of the company. Another employee, Alan, is angry because the MCP has locked him out so he can't finish his program, Tron, that would actually watch the MCP and regulate it. Well the MCP doesn't like that. (MCP is sentient) So these two guys team up to take out the MCP. Well while Flynn is trying to hack in so Alan can finish working on his Tron program, the MCP uses a laser to zap Flynn into the computer. So to survive, Flynn has to compete in games and team up with Tron to take out the MCP.
This movie was pretty entertaining but the graphics were pretty crap. This movie was mostly CGI but CGI from the early 80's. It was still good to watch. Check out the trailer.

Well they are making a new Tron movie. Tron: Legacy, which comes out in December. This movie looks pretty shiz and has a hot guy in it. The graphics in this one looks way better. I will post the trailer so you can get excited with me. And if you can find Tron, watch it cause it is pretty entertaining. This looks pretty freakin' awesome!!!


I went and saw that new movie Inception and it was pretty good. A little long but you don't really notice because you're so engrossed witht the movie.
This movie has kind of a confusing plot, but you eventually figure it out. It's about how people try to get information out of your dreams. "In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a highly skilled thief is given a final chance at redemption which involves executing his toughest job till date, Inception (" Leonardo DiCaprio is the main character named Cobb and there is David Gordon-Levitt as Arthur and so on and so forth. There is a hot guy in the movie though. He is Tom Hardy. Anyways... Cobb is told to plant and idea in this dude's head (inception) so he will break up his dad's business empire. If Cobb does this he will be able to go home. So Cobb assembles a team and they go into this dude's head and all this extensive stuff.
This movie was pretty cool and I did enjoy watching a hot guy through out the movie. Well in the dream world they could do whatever they wanted and it was pretty cool the things that they do. Like they can bend the world and walk on walls and the celing and stuff. It was cool and if you haven't seen it yet, you need to.

Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall

I haven't blogged forever! So I'm going to do a massive blog update today with everything that I have been doing for awhile (mainly what movies I have seen). I'm going to start off with one of the funniest things I have ever read.

Night of the Living Trekkies is freaking hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't ever remember how I found it but I was on Amazon and I found it and preordered it. I got it and read it in a day. I was laughing so hard.
This book is about a guy named Jim Pike (JIM kirk and christopher PIKE haha) who growing up was a Star Trek fan, but after two tours in Afghanistan, he didn't believe in fantisy anymore and just wanted a no responsibilty job to do nothing in. He works at a hotel in Houston called Botany Bay (based of the place Captain Cook named in Australia and not the ship Khan was on) which is holding a Star Trek convention. His sister, Rayna, is coming to the convention with some friends. But not too far away, a underground facility housing things infected with some virus somehow gets out of control and stuff gets out.
Suddenly a friendly Star Trek convention turns into ground zero for a zombie apocalypse. Jim now can't escape responsibility when he has to save a group of survivors from the hotel. He has to fight tons of zombies with only Star Trek weapons, Tasers, and a single gun.
This book was hilarious. There were so many Star Trek references and some Star Wars references. Every chapter was titled after a Star Trek episode (most of them the Original Series). There were mentions of things like Hortas, Spock's brain, the Star Trek movies, and things from Star Wars. I want to lend this book to my Star Trek friends so they can read it. I was so funny.

What a sucky way to end a series.

I just finished watching the tv show Angel. This show is a spin off of the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I liked this show (except the fourth season) and it had a really hot guy in it. David Boreanaz.

This show was about Angel the vampire with a soul who went to L.A. to save the world. It was super awesome. There was lots of fighting and demon slaying and junk like that. It was really cool.
This show ran for five seasons which were good except for the the fourth season. That season was crap with annoying people and annoying problems. There was also tons of humor and funny crap. Like in the fifth season, Angel got turned into a puppet. I was laughing so hard. There are a lot of funny pop culture references that are silly.
But the thing I hate the most was how it ended. SPOILER They just go into a huge battle and then the end. They don't solve anything. We don't even know who dies or if Angel or Spike get to become human like the prophacy said. Man did that suck. Well it was good while it lasted. Now I have to find something else to fill my time. Maybe I will read a book. ;)

Teaching Swimming Lessons SUCKS!

Well sort of. Today was my first day of swim lessons and I found out it was not what I expected. Well first off, I'm suppose to be an aid but I'm a teacher. And I don't get paid as a teacher cause I don't have my WSI (Water Safty Instructor) certification. I got stuck with levels 1, 2, and 3. I teach level 1 at 10 in the morning, level 2 at 11 in the morning, and level 3 at 6 at night. So I have to go back there and teach tonight.
Level 1 sucks because the kids are too scared to even get in the water. They wont even come up to chest level. It sucks so we have to babysit them and try to make them get in the water. That is not fun at all. Level 2 is a little better cause they listen a little better and they can do more things and they aren't as scared. But they are all over the place.
I don't know how I'm going to do with level 3 but they should mostly know how to swim. The only good is that I get to be in the water 3 hours a day and get tan. haha. It also gets me out of my other job selling Cutco. I really don't want to sell Cutco anymore. I don't really like talking to people and going to stranger's houses. Oh well. The summer is almost over so I can do these jobs for another 2 months. Oh and my brother left for school today. So no more Steven.
