Adam the Woo!

Image
Hi gang sorry had a little time off from blogging last week but I will get caught up with all the great things we did last week! But today I want to share with you a YouTube vlogger that I have falling in love with. His name is Adam The Woo and his daily journeys. I found his channel a few months ago when he did a meet up with another vlogger I watched. I was drawn in by his style.


The crazy part of this story for Adam is that he has packed all his belongings into a van that he plans on traveling the country in! And what he could not fit he gave away, no really he is just going to travel around giving us a glimpse every day into what he see's. I don't know it is amazing to me and in a few short months, I have watched an amazing amount of backlog! It has been a fun journey and I look forward to a new video every day.

I guess what I'm trying to say is Adam the Woo is worth looking into as he gives us the view a glimpse into his life and what he is leaving behind!



Let me know…

The Midnite Drive-In Presents

I love doing Blogathon's because it gives you a reason to finally watch some of those movies you have on your backlog. I have not really done much in the way of Film Noir so I'm really digging the change here.

You would not believe what movies I put in for. Well ok, some of you might.

In the meantime if you are interested in doing the Blogathon head on over to Midnite Drive-In and sign up today. And if there is a Blogathon you feel I would enjoy taking part in leave me a comment below.

Horror Film Historian David Del Valle
Unleash "Haunted Hollywood"
Writer, author, media personality and legendary cinema gadfly David Del Valle to host unique 20 part TV series profiling the strangest, spookiest tales in Hollywood history.


Writer, film historian, and celebrated horror obsessive David Del Valle has led a remarkable life on the fringes of Hollywood and has, over his 40 plus years immersing himself in fan culture, collected enough stories to fill the pages of dozens of books.

In fact, Del Valle has indeed released several books over the years (including the well-reviewed SIX REELS UNDER) charting his amusing, often profound and insightful adventures with cinema's most fascinating figures. But now, the genre culture mainstay has partnered up with producers Charles Band and David Decoteau for his first ever TV show; a lively, funny and insightful blast of anecdotal cool called HAUNTED HOLLYWOOD.

HAUNTED HOLLYWOOD is a 20 pa…

My My Miss American Pie!

Sometime's my wife love's me and helps with my sad addiction to movies. She worked out of town last week and spotted a Dollar Tree and was so kind to go in and have a look around. My wife, well she hates the Dollar Tree so this was huge! I'm really glad she did as she scored me the American Pie on Blu that I was so upset that others were finding!

Max

Max The Curse of the Brotherhood

So with all the hype this week during E3 I decided to jump back into this game. This was a big E3 announcement game a few years back.

I was lucky enough to score a download code for a few coins on 99gamers before it went belly up.

The game looks amazing and the gameplay is pretty new to me you fill your magic marker up to unlock things around you.

I stink and video games but this one has been pretty cool so far.

Plot:
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a cinematic adventure filled with action-packed platforming and creative puzzle-solving. Armed with only a Magic Marker, Max must confront evil at every turn in a hostile and fantastical world in order to save his kid brother, Felix. Join Max on his great adventure!


Here are a few clips that we have made.

I just love how beautiful the backgrounds are. Really helps pull you in the environment. 

This is a long play video sorry. So what are you playing during the dog days of summer? What are you looking forw…

I missed them showing South Parks new game but have heard it was one of the best intro's of E3 so far. I love love love the first RPG and can not wait for this one. It will be on the Christmas list for sure.

Sea Of Thieves

It takes a lot for me to get excited about video games anymore most of them are well beyond what I can play but this one looks like a ton of fun! Sea Of Thieves was announced today at E3 check out the video below. What has you excited so far on your favorite gaming system?


My Mind Is On Orlando

Image
The Man Cave will be changing it's banner to honor those life's that were tragically taken in Orlando and all the senseless violence all over the United States.  Gun violence has become just a new story for the News every day. This is sadly something that will never go away somebody out there thinks the need to do more they need to kill a higher number. It's sad I really have no words!

Writer:  Jason Bourque

Stars:  Michael Shanks Alexandra Davies Saskia Hampele
When a solar eclipse sends a colossal blast of super chilled air towards the earth, it then sets off a catastrophic chain of events that threatens to engulf the world in ice and begin a new Ice Age.



So what do you do on your first day off and it's in the 90's outside? You watch a cheesy movie about an Arctic Blast killing people all over the world. Disaster films are always so much fun aren't they? Arctic Blast was made for a Canada TV network and fits the SyFy network mold perfectly.

Breaking News??

What the Hell is this?? Announcing the world's best mass llama-slaughter roguelike-lite-ish couch co-op twin-stick top-down shooter, coming to Xbox One! This looks so strange yet fun?


Should I stay or should I GO

Image
So I started watching Project X the other day I'm about 45 minutes into this and I can not sit still. Is it me? Does it get any better??  I just want to walk away from it but I feel invested yet it is so boring and lame.

So I ask if you have seen it does it get better? Should I finish this thing or just let it go?

Please let me know in the comments.

I think there is only like 5 movies that I have not finished in my lifetime, ugh.

Chris Evans
Mark Ruffalo
When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's Mightiest Heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.


Well ok, so this took me almost a year to watch beginning to end. I had such a hard time wanting to watch this Avengers. I feel they have jumped way too quickly into the newer universes for Marvel. I'm christ we are at the Civil War already. I guess being a classic fan I wanted more of that you know when the comic books were fun and you did not need a comic book encyclopedia  to keep up. I was so lost I had no clue who Ultron really was and then this Vision guy what the hell!! 

I stopped reading superhero books because of crap like this and I have grown burnt out on the movies. I loved I…

Stars:  Dax Shepard Kristen Bell Bradley Cooper
Former getaway driver Charlie Bronson jeopardizes his Witness Protection Plan identity in order to help his girlfriend get to Los Angeles. The feds and Charlie's former gang chase them on the road.



Man if Frozen was a live action film I would have watched it in a heart beat! Who knew that sweet little Anna was a super hot Kristen Bell!! She nailed the part of a sweet innocent small town girl that everybody would love to hang out with. I think this is the first movie I watched her in! NO, wait she was in Scream 4 crap I need to revisit that one asap! Her and Dax Shepard really give you the feeling they are a happy couple and that he would do anything for her. This suck's you into Hit and Run rather quickly.

When I received an E-Mail from Crackle this week I got a little giddy when I read that the kickboxers where streaming for free in June! I thought hell why not revisit the 80's and a little Cannon movie magic. 

Dead Rising: Endgame Free on Crackle

Image
“Friends don’t let friends go through Z-Town alone.” Journalist Chase Carter and company return to East Mission City to slice and dice their way to the truth in the new trailer for Crackle’s Dead Rising: Endgame, the latest film adaptation of the popular zombie video game series. I still need to play this game dang it! I have owned it since I picked up my Xbox360! And I need to watch the first movie as well but this one looks just as good!

Kinky Kong and Cavemen!

Image
Ok, this past week has been an odd one! So let's start with the really odd first shall we?


Yep, that's Kinky Kong I have no idea what this is but the title made me laugh so why not right? Well, what I did not know was it is one of those cheep knock off softcore movies so I'm not sure how good it will be but someday I just might watch it. I picked this up at SwapaDvd.com  I know I talk about that site a lot so here is some info. If you have old DVD's or Blu-Rays collecting dust or you just hated them you can trade them away for credits for buying what you want. You know like Kinky Kong! I have been doing it for years only burned once and that was the sites fault, not the trader.
