Of all the flicks that I remember from growing up in the 1980s, one of the best was The Princess Bride. I’ll admit to not wanting to watch it in my youth because it sounded like a “girl movie” to my younger self.
I can remember back in the day, one of the older kids that rode the bus home played a Queen album constantly on his little tape player and the song of choice was “Another One Bites the Dust,” only we all sang it “Another One Rides the Bus” each time someone got on.

Growing up, one of my favorite movies was Superman The Movie. Christopher Reeve will always be Superman to me, just as Roger Moore will always be 007.

Seems like a lot of video games are getting turned into movies right now. Historically they don’t translate well. Which may be why Blizzard might be using a different strategy with Diablo. A report from Variety claims that a Diablo animated series is being developed by Netflix.
Of all the families in the Game of Thrones realm, the Lannisters are the most screwed up. They have the money, power, and more dysfunction of any three other families combined. One of them broke free of the madness to some extent, and that’s Tyrion – who, like many of you, I’m sure – is my favorite of the clan.
The biggest downside to game consoles like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X is the cost. Modern consoles and their games are very expensive making it hard for lots of gamers to afford.
