A triple dose of Jason Statham...

We had time.....and nothing else better to do. So we decided to catch up on some movies that we have stored in the box. I decided to watch Crank which we found quite interesting, then we decided to follow up with Crank 2. With more time to spare we continued to watch The Bank Job, which we didn't know starred Jason Statham. Overall these movies are pretty good.

Advise for Crank and Crank 2, it contains alot of violence, cussing, nekkid ladies and $3x scenes. So try not to watch it with kids around.

Movie Review : Avatar

I first heard about this show about 4-5 years ago when it was announced that James Cameron the director wanted to wait a couple more years so that technology would allow him to really show what he visioned this show to be.

As expected James did not disappoint, with a solid story line, beautiful CG and smooth character development, I found myself quite attached and immersed to the much predictable storyline. Yes I did say "predictable", why? maybe because we've seen similar story lines before in the past couple of years, it could also be the fact that James wrote the story quite a few years back.

Never the less it is a must watch for every movie junkie. Say what you will, but I think this is a really nice and fresh movie just in time for Christmas.

IKEA Continued...

Just after you think everything would go find out that something is wrong. Unfortunately it was an IKEA part which was a problem, plus upon unwrapping the coffee table, there were some chip and scratch marks, what was worst is that we discovered that there were no screws. So we decided to return the item, which was okay. The whole process of returning and getting another replacement unit took about 20 minutes.

We were happy with our new unit as we ensured that there were no scratches, chips and had all the screws and stuff.

Well....this time everything went well until we found out one of the screw mounts had no grooves to take the screw! Once again we headed back to get that small piece changed, but another issue arose. There are grooves in this screw mount, but the grooves are for the wrong type of screws! Apparently the guy who went in to get a replacement part didn't notice that there were markings on the screw mount.

Let's just say that until now we have an incomplete coffee table. I'm not pissed, but just a little dissapointed.

Time to get that part changed again.
