So, I took the week off of posting because I had a ridiculously busy work week. I haven’t had a day off in 8 days, and two of those included switching to the graveyard shift and back again. I am off tomorrow, but that’ll be mostly spent decompressing and getting my place cleaned up after a week of neglect. And I still have two more days to go before I get a proper weekend to myself. Its been work, come home, get drunk, go to sleep and repeat. So yeah, updates were pretty much out of the question.
Needless to say that I haven’t had the time to go toy shopping and it looks like a professional commitment is going to keep me out of the loop for Matty’s Sale Day next Monday, which is not a terribly big deal, since the reissue Mer Man is the only figure I really want this time around (maybe Optikk) and if I have to, I’ll go the secondary market route for both of them.
I did eek out enough time to go see Iron Man 2 last Saturday. I’ll probably attach my feelings about it to the next Iron Man related toy review I do. Probably sometime next week. Suffice it to say, I really enjoyed it a lot. The early reviews had me a bit nervous, claiming it to be a Spider-Man 3 style mess. Well, it was certianly a busy script, but I thought it tied together nicely. I don’t think anyone expects a sequel to be as tight as the original, and IR2 certainly wasn’t, but it was possibly more fun. Next chance I get, I’ll go see it again.
I’m also seriously overdue on my weekly Doctor Who review. I did manage to catch Vampires of Venice on Saturday and I’ll put together something on it for tomorrow. I also have another figure from the Resistance 2 line by DC Unlimited to review. Its been kicking around, unopened on my shelf for almost two weeks. I don’t usually do that, but I knew I was going to have a shitty week coming up, and I thought I’d save him to open him when I needed a treat. It was a good idea. I sliced him open yesterday and all I can say is these figures continue to impress.
So, now, I’m going to fix myself a nice, tall bourbon and coke, kick back, relax, and watch two of today’s new Blu-Ray releases: Daybreakersand Legion. Yeah, I already saw them both when they were in the theater. Daybreakers was an exceptionally well done film on a number of levels. Legion was, well, let’s just say its my kind of stupid.
Depending how I feel, I may pop over to Toys R Us tomorrow.
