(Note: Kevin and I considered doing a Best Movies of 2013 post before the Oscars, but alas we didn’t see everything and therefore couldn’t really comment on whether 12 Years A Slave was a better movie than Gravity. However, we think it’s still worth posting reviews of some of our favorite movies from last year, so over the next couple of weeks we’ll be talking about some films we admired in 2013. Enjoy!)
As I sat in a full theater watching the animated film, Frozen, I realized that I was experiencing a nostalgic moment of escape. I was having fun without a worry in the world. It occurred to me how rare it is that a film can snap me out of reality.
My love for movies developed when I was a child. Back then everything on the big screen was breathtaking, unique and amazing.
Except, Titanic, I hated that movie. Yes even as a kid I was a critic.
Welcome to our Walking Dead Power Rankings. Jesse has 47 points while Kevin has 51.
(Note: Each week Jesse and I will rank the Walking Dead characters from least likely to die to most likely to die. If a character does perish then we earn points. For instance if Glenn dies this week then Jesse will have 7 points and I will have 5 points.)
It’s my favorite time of the year. Time for baseball caps, new players and another chance for the Miami Marlins to embarrass themselves. No, I’m not talking about spring training, I’m talking about Survivor! Yes Jeff Probst, and his baseball cap, is coming back to your televisions for the 28th season of Survivor that features 18 brand new players including the president of the Miami Marlins. So my second sentence totally works alright?
I have spent a lot of time watching, reading and listening about this new upcoming season so I figure I will give you some of my bold predictions. But first, let me give you some background to the new twists this season.
Today is the last day of the NFL Combine and you know what that means; we’ve just been subjected to endless amounts of drills, 40-yard dash times and everyone going bonkers over Michael Sam, most of which none of us will care about when next season starts. Sam is a big deal right now, and I applaud his bravery and the way he’s handled himself in the media, but once he’s drafted he’ll just be another player. That’s what he would prefer anyway I’m sure and that’s how teams are going to treat him. We do live in the year 2014, after all. Back on subject, this is also the time of the year when teams start devising their plans for the off-season and commence putting it into action. Here at Pegboard, we love trying to predict the future and figure out just what our beloved Broncos might do to kick their Super Bowl hangover. I’m not going to talk at-length about that game because I have absolutely no desire to relive it. The Seahawks were dominant, the Broncos were dreadful and I’ll just leave it at that.
The defending AFC Champions will be good enough to contend once more next season, but here are five steps they can take this off-season to ensure that the conclusion will be more satisfying.
Welcome to our Walking Dead Power Rankings. Last week we got to check in on all of the survivors of the mid season finale. They are all broken up and out of the safety of the jail so the last half of the season should have plenty of opportunities for death. If we count the death of Lilly then Jesse has 47 points while I take the lead with 51.
(Note: Each week Jesse and I will rank the Walking Dead characters from least likely to die to most likely to die. If a character does perish then we earn points. For instance if Glenn dies this week then Jesse will have 4 points and I will have 5 points.)
Welcome back to our Walking Dead Power Rankings. The Walking Dead is finally back as it wraps up the 4th season and Pegboard is finally back to attempt to predict the deaths of our favorite zombie slayers. At mid season finale Jesse and I are tied at 36 points each.
(Note: Each week Jesse and I will rank the Walking Dead characters from least likely to die to most likely to die. If a character does perish then we earn points. For instance if Glenn dies this week then Jesse will have 7 points and I will have 6 points.)
The next generation of video game consoles are here, and we here at Pegboard couldn’t care less. Not only are those new systems horribly overpriced and riddled with numerous technological issues, but at this point there are hardly any games worth owning anyway. Meanwhile, there are a bunch of titles from this generation that Kevin and I have yet to play, and it just makes a lot more sense to us to focus on those before we even consider dropping half a grand on a new console. Thus, we are happy to start our own series of video game columns, where we will be reviewing some of our favorites from the current-gen systems. Or I guess they are now the last-gen systems? I know, it’s confusing.
First up: Telltale Games’ critically acclaimed episodic adventure, “The Walking Dead: The Game.”
