Hybrids, zombies and regular internet searches turned odd
We rented World War Z and My Amityville Horror . The latter was an impulse rent of the kid who survived the Amityville stuff in the 70's. Boy, he's a hot mess. If you're into the paranormal and maybe like the show Intervention, give it a rent. It's at least worth ending up on your Netflix queue for those who imbibe in the service.
World War Z . Um, I didn't know Z stood for zombie. I know, I know...what rock have I been under? But nowhere in the trailer did I see zombies, it looked like a Deep Impact type movie and I didn't read the book so I thought it was like the medieval abbreviation Z for 2000. I'll say this, if there's anyone who is still scarred from the Boston bombings, you might not want to watch the very beginning. Despite it being another city, we were surprised how much it resembled the marathon bombings. I'm not a fan of zombie anything but I must say not going in with a preconceived notion or piss and vinegar that they didn't stick to the original plot, I found it quite good! The zombies in this move at a terrifying speed that will probably pop up in a nightmare this week. Sorry ahead of time Mr! But did ya see the part on the plane where the dog... and then the thing... and then he pulled the...damn man! I don't know what it is about Brad Pitt but I really like him as an actor. It's like his charming Midwestern upbringing tends to show through in his movie roles and then you have those eyes. Either that or I just can't help but see the dreamy guy talking to Carol Seaver and giving plain Jane girls hope on Growing Pains.
Sometimes when I'm bored I will do a random one word search on the three popular search engines to see what pops up. Here's what happened when I entered the word "IS" in Google, Bing and Yahoo searches.
Wow, talk about a mixed bag of searches! Apparently someone needs to make sure Jackie Chan is alive since he was searched as possibly expired in two of them. I don't know why but "is Phyllis leaving the Young and the Restless" made me laugh. Yes, she did. Her character is in an indefinite coma which means she can come back or in an act of tomfoolery on the writers part...be recast in the future.
The Mr FINALLY got Grand Theft Auto 5 after, oh, almost a year of being pushed back. So suffice it to say there will be a lot of virtual cars, guns and hookers on the menu for the weekend. Lucky me.
Rented any movies lately? What was last night's workout?
