Me and my Grandma went and saw “Crazy Heart.” Its a limited release that came out on December 16, 2009. It follows Bad Blake played by Jeff Bridges. Bad Blake is down and out alcoholic country singer who through meeting Jean played by Maggie Gyllenhaal turns his life around. The films which is excellent in my opion holds a 92% freshness rating on rottentomato. My grandma said the film is really what life is about. The film was casted very well, the people played the parts as if they where those people.

I recently started watching the show “True Blood” which is an HBO show that follows Vampires living among humans. Vampires are in the process of getting rights and some vampires are killing people and some vampires are mainstreaming into nice human like vampires. The show follows sookie who works at a lousianna bar with her friends when a vampire comes in the picture. I have watched the entire first season (12 episodes) and half of the second season.
I also started watching Vampire Diaries, i have only seen 2 episodes because I have taken to True Blood so much. I can not say much about Vampire Diaries, but it follows a highschool where some vampires have started attending.
Me and my roommate went to see “Shutter Island” last night at 10:10. Its not a horror movie which i thought it was going in. Its more of an eerie thriller. I cant tell you much without giving it all away but it follows two police officers who investigate a missing prisoner. This prison though happens to house the crazies that no other prision can handle, and its on an island. Me and my roommate both thought it was Amazing. It now one of my favorite movies.
Last Week I finished Mass Effect 2. Its a RPG that follows Commander Shepard in Space as he recruits other races to fight the ultimate bad guy. You can import your data from the first game which will allow you to better experience the second installment. I dont want to give any details away about the game. You can read and watch a video review of Mass Effect 2 at Ign.com. I also started playing the first Bioshock game which is a creepy game.
I have recently starting watching Burn Notice on USA. It is a show that follows a spy recently burned and there for can no longer work with the government. He tries to figure out who burned him. He can no longer access his bank accounts. He helps people with jobs the police will not like: kidnapping cases, stolen items, etc. He has the help of a gun crazy exgirlfriend and ex government agent. I have watched the first 10 episodes of the 1st season and i would recommend it to people of crime and action shows.
Monday Prime Time is the best television of the week. How I Met Your Mother, Chuck, House, 24, Two and a Half Men, and The Big Bang Theory. The episode of How I Met Your Mother took place during the time of last nights Super Bowl. Barney was at the game with a sign showing his telephone number for everyone to see which is the setup for one of my favorite episodes. Two and a Half men is currently scaring me regarding Charlie’s progress towards dewomanizing. 24 was epic as always with Jack making an impressive knife throw toward the end of the episode. Chuck had a great ending but also sad. I have not yet watched House.
I personally am a Steelers fan but when they could not repeat i wanted the Vikings or the Saints to win. So i wanted the Saints to win tonight. Who Dat…Drew Brees. I did not watch the pro bowl this year before the super bowl. I am a Brett Farve fan and a Drew Brees fan so i guess Go Saints. I hate Manning, both of them.
