Movie Issues: Anaconda

MY ANACONDA DON’T WANT NONE UNLESS YOU GOT BUNS HUN! Yea…. we did. That’s right, it was audience pick week and we heard you. The 1997 “masterpiece” Anaconda was voted and picked. It’s a little creature feature that stars J.Lo, Ice Cube and Jon Voight as the fight to survive in the amazon jungle against a 30 foot anaconda. You know, like you do. It’s not good, but man is it entertaining. Fake snakes, bad CGI, “acting” and some of the best dialogue ever said. It’s worth a watch, with lots of beer. So with that please download and listen to audience pick week: Anaconda. Read On

Jordan’s Backlog:  Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

There comes a time in every gamer’s life when you realize, “There are too many things to play!” Sadly, I’ve reached that point in my life and I must admit that I can’t play everything when they come out, beat them, and also write about them. Luckily, I have just enough free time to put in work on a bunch of the games I’ve yet to finish.

 

That being said, welcome to Jordan’s Backlog, my feeble attempt to get my thoughts out about all the games I’ve been playing without being able to review them all. Because, let’s be honest, I’m no professional, but I can get things done (most of the time). Read On

Review: Prince Lestat

Posted by: |

Review: Prince Lestat

That’s what they all love about Lestat. He says we’re damned and then he behaves as if Hell has no dominion over him.

Anne Rice doesn’t need a lot of introduction. In 1976 she published Interview with the Vampire, which pretty much shaped the course of all vampire fiction from then on. The whole concept of vampires changed from things-that-go-bump-in-the-night, to tortured souls looking for redemption, cursed to live forever and drink the blood of human victims who would always be falling helplessly in love with them. If any book, TV show, or movie created in the last thirty years features vampires in velvet and lace, who also happen to be devastatingly handsome and charming (homoerotic subtext optional but fairly likely), you can credit Anne Rice’s books for the style if not the actual substance.

After she published Blood Canticle in 2003 Rice announced she had said everything she needed to say in the Vampire Chronicles. It took her more than ten years to change her mind, but this October she released Prince Lestat, the eleventh book in the Vampire Chronicles (which don’t count Pandora and Vittorio the Vampire, for some reason), taking the vampires much further along in their journey from cursed outsiders to the beginning of a new super race. Anne apparently reread all of her previous vampire books for inspiration in writing this one; from the flood of guest appearances by even the most minor characters, it’s pretty obvious that she wanted to make sure each and every one of her beloved Undead creations had their moment in the spotlight.
