Some people go to the movies for the sheer enjoyment of being entertained. There are some movies that stretch the limits of your imagination (or theirs) in their interpretation of things we may do on a daily basis or even things we see and/or read about. There is also the fantasy aspect and in some cases, situations that seem implausible when you do view the film at hand. If you are the type that enjoys leaving your ‘world’ when going to the movie theater, then ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ just might fill your hunger to leave your mind elsewhere, yet, bring your imagination to the movie seat.
The big budget movie doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the graphic scenes shown on screen. It’s not at a loss for action and some may even consider it quite thrilling. In fact, the body count is quite high and if you are into something like that, your appetite will be whet. If chilling, violent action is your thing, then reserve your ticket now. Read more…

We got a chance to review the new HTC 8X with Windows Phone 8. I got the navy blue phone which was really nice. No doubt you’re asking the question: How is it different than any other phones, and any other Windows Phone 8 devices. Well keep reading to find out. As usual, I’ve divided the review into two main portions. The stuff I liked and the stuff I didn’t.
What I liked:
The screen is 4.3 inches which isn’t the largest display out there, but it definitely gives you plenty of room to see what’s going on. The dimensions end up making it long (132.35 x 66.2 x 10.12 mm) but it really fits the Windows Phone motif where you have to scroll forever to get to what you want. It’s also really slender so it’s comfortable to hold on to.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Buick? For me, it was “old people” but since having the opportunity to drive and review the Buick LaCrosse, that opinion quickly changed to “luxurious”.
I got a chance to look at some cool stuff Samsung has out right now that is pretty lust-worthy. The Galaxy S3 is sort of a beast, the note is pretty much a tablet if you ask me, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a sexier TV. Below are my impressions of those devices.
Samsung S3 and Note
These two devices are pretty similar in that they both make and receive phone calls. Other than that, they have pretty stark differences. The Galaxy S3 is quicker, with a faster CPU speed, more up to date OS (Ice Cream Sandwich), and to me, just plain sexier. However, the Note is no slouch with it’s stylus and huge display at 5.3 inches. Depending on your aesthetic tastes, I’d say either is a pretty good bargain if you don’t mind Samsung’s Touchflo skin on top of stock Android. Read more…
