The zombie apocalypse in Cuba (Picture courtesy Casa de América)
Busy week of prepping to move and moving, but that didn’t stop me from getting some media in…
Juan de los muertos – It’s not the greatest movie in the world, but it’s pretty damn awesome. I don’t get to see a lot of movies about Cuba or set in Cuba and this was a real pleasure. I mean, now that I don’t live in Miami, how often do I get to hear people speak Spanish the way I’m used to hearing it? I loved this movie and I’d recommend it to anyone who digs a zombie comedy.
Workaholics – I’d heard good things about this comedy somewhere, but I was left feeling a little lukewarm. It’s not bad, but I don’t enjoy it as much as, say, The League. I do dig the unlovable leads, at least.
30 for 30: Unguarded – ESPN’s documentary series is pretty awesome, guys. A ton of them are on Netflix now too. I mean, I really don’t like basketball, but this documentary about Chris Herren’s struggles with drugs was very interesting. The story’s not groundbreaking, but it’s heartfelt and done well.
Top Gear – Jeremy races the other two across Japan in a sports car while they take Japanese public transportation. Very funny competition. I love it when they do challenges on this show.
Community – My S3 box set came in this week so I watched the first episode. Man do I love these guys. Can’t wait for their S4 return!
Breaking Bad – Bob Odenkirk’s debut was perfectly timed and this show is really on a roll in S2. His line, “Right now you’re Fredo,” was amazing and pretty chilling. I’m way back in.
Pretty Little Liars – Gotta pay your dues. Saw the first ever episode with Tiffany (she hadn’t seen it either). Not as terrible as you might think, but still a show that’s clearly not for me.
B.O.B.’s dropped a new record recently. These two tracks (one with Andre 3000 and the other with Nicki Minaj) are pretty hot. I’m pretty sure they’ll end up on my tumblr in a few weeks, but enjoy them for now.
Another week where I let my brain rot.
Team Fortress 2 – It feels like ages ago since I first started playing Mann vs. Machine, but I love this mode. Can’t wait to get some more time in this week, but the move is gonna get in the way.
Iron Brigade – Only played a map or two, but Lee, Min, and I will save the world from the TV menace!
Orcs Must Die 2 – Decent tower defense game. Hope to play with Lee or Yin too since they seem to be pros.
The Last Story – Just started playing this and discussing it with David. Expect more in this space soon. Very interesting so far.
Persona 4 Arena – Finally starting to finish stories. Still one more big mystery to uncover.
Trine 2 – Finally started playing some with Min. I like the co-op and I really like the weirdness of the physics engine. Ninja rope for life!
Spelunky – Made it to Hell for the first time! I got a few levels in before I died too! Brutal, brutal stuff.
