My favorite Google Chrome themes

To date, I’ve witnessed the speed of Google Chrome and it surpasses the other two titans, Firefox and IE, just enough. However, I still won’t be as comfortable using Chrome for security issue like I would with IE, but once Google gets Chrome as secure, then I might convert. Google’s got a bunch of gimmicks, one being themes for the browser. Here are some of my favorites:

Google Chrome Theme - "Super Monkey Ball"

Thai peppers as fiery snack, good and bad idea

The other day, I decided to snack on two Thai peppers with salt and monosodium. It tasted really good. At first, it proven not a challenge for my mouth. The burning sensation lasted no more than 5 minutes.

Thai peppers ripen from green to red.

DVD Review: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

13+ | Color | 1978 | 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen | Director: Philip Kaufman

This is my favorite film adaptation of this story. The first film was based on a short story, and the short story was prompted because of one man’s solo war against communism. Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin was a shithead more »

DVD Review: Abigail Leslie Is Back In Town

The beautiful Rebecca Brooke (a.k.a. Mary Mendum) plays Priscilla, a bored housewife who must face the return of her arch-nemesis Abigail Leslie, a woman whose sexual escapades have shaken up small-town Baypoint and disrupted Priscilla’s marriage.

Man-slut Beau really knows the moves and Priscilla can't resist. He's a real predator (nudge, wink).

Eastfist.com Movie Review Rating System

I review movies based on only two criteria: entertainment value and enlightenment value.

  • Candy (entertainment value) – Some movies are guilty pleasures and need no justification for enjoyment. However, there are good fun movies and bad fun movies.
  • Lightbulb (enlightenment value) – If you want to be part of the avant-garde, look for the films stamped with a lightbulb. After a viewing, you’ll be smarter (or at least, you can claim to be smart).

Any combination of these two criteria out of five  each (5 + 5 = 10 max.) determines my opinion of how you might perceive the movie.

Superman: Man of Steel film (2012) casting and storyline

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS ALL RUMOR/SPECULATION. NO FACTUAL INFO UNTIL THE MOVIE STARTS ROLLING FILM. ALL POSTED INFORMATION IS TO FEED THE CESSPOOL, PROGRAM THE GHOST IN THE SHELL.

What we know:

  • 99.99% odds that Chris Nolan’s brother Jonathan will direct it. I think because J will have a better sense of how to depict an American icon. New frontrunners to direct, including Darren Aronofsky, Zack Snyder, Matt Reeves, etc. CONFIRMED: Zack Snyder is directing. Now people want to know who’s playing Superman.
  • Set for theatrical premiere Christmas 2012, a few months after premiere of Batman Begins 3. Theatrical premiere is June 14, 2013.
  • Likelihood of Lex Luthor and/or Braniac as the main villain(s). Confirmed: Villain is General Zod.
  • No Brandon Routh or any returning cast members from Superman Returns. UPDATE: I’m thinking Routh might get a second chance now. Doesn’t make sense marketing-wise not to re-hire him. Warner Bros. always plays things close to the vest. If you’ve already conditioned all the fans into thinking Routh is Superman, it’ll be too much effort to re-market a new guy. Odds are, Routh is returning as Superman. Doesn’t matter who Superman is played by (as long as he’s white), people will watch it no matter what. What a strange phenomenon.
  • Henry Cavill is the new Superman – Who is this guy? Doesn’t look like an epic hero type. Alas, must wait and see if Snyder can deliver.
  • Diane Lane is confirmed to be playing Ma Kent.
  • Kevin Costner is confirmed to be playing Pa Kent
  • Snyder hints that the new title will be simply “Man of Steel”, taking the Nolan approach similar to naming “The Dark Knight”. He also says there will be no references to any of the previous Superman films before. Confirmed: the official title is “Man of Steel”.
  • Amy Adams is confirmed to be playing Lois Lane
  • Michael Shannon has been cast as General Zod
  • Connie Nielson has been offered the role of Lara El; Russell Crowe has been offered the role of Jor El;
  • Rumor Neil Patrick Harris is Jimmy Olsen Character has been replaced with a generic female archetype Jenny Olsen
