And yes, the new iPad 3 is awesome. I'll give you guys some details on Wednesday.
But first – movie review!
Enough people raved about this movie that I went on faith and purchased the 3D Blu-ray. And it was money well spent!
Hugo has to be one of the most unique and original films I have ever seen. It’s enchanting, touching, and very sweet-spirited. The storyline is about loss and how the main characters deal with it. Everyone from Ben Kingsley to Asa Butterfield and Chloe Grace Moretz (who play the children) turn in incredible performances.
The visuals are stunning. They create such an amazing and vivid world. The 3D is a must, as it adds so much depth – it’s the best use of that effect since Avatar.
Hugo is wonderful and it should’ve won Best Picture.
Now for the burning questions. Just a little Ninja curiosity…
When do you blog? What’s your schedule?
I blog M-W-F and all posts go live at 5:30 am EST. I’ve noticed about half also post early in the morning.
How do you visit blogs?
I start with my blogger buddies folder in my Google Reader. It pulls up the most recent first, so those who posted late the night before are usually the last ones I visit unless I skip around.
How do you reply to comments?
I reply here on my blog, Usually I’ll leave one comment addressing about ten to twenty previous ones.
How many blogs do you visit a day?
On days I post, over a hundred; on days I don’t, it’s less. (Yes, I am a blogging Ninja.)
Do you schedule posts when you’re away?
I don’t because I wouldn’t expect anyone to visit me if I couldn’t visit others.
Finally, Roland Yeomans would like to thank everyone who visited Friday and provide the title of Mark Twain’s movie choices:
1.) THE THING (Any of the three versions.)
2.) THE THING (Again any of the three versions.)
3.) INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (Again, any of the 3 versions. Jeez, Mark!)
4.) THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (Any of the zillion money-grubbing digitally polished versions.)
5.) ALIENS (one of the deleted scenes. Yes, I told Mark Twain that was cheating, but he just chuckled it was his way to keep us, the living, on our toes!)
6.) THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (Thankfully, the only version as yet made. Unless you count 2012!)
7.) ALIEN VS. PREDATOR I (Mark wanted to add it went triple for desert bars built on top of Aztec pyramids, but I told him we had hit our 300 word limit!)
Care to share any of your blogging habits? Guess any of the movies correctly? Have you seen Hugo? And did you finally go see John Carter?
