I have spent far more then my share of hours plopped down in front of the TV watching the worst garbage that Hollywood can dish out. I am a glutton for punishment, and seeing cheesy decapitations hits me in the special spot of the brain that apparently can not be over stimulated. For this reason, it would be understandable to assume that I love video-game based films, as they are nearly always utter crap. Yet this is not the case. For some reason, I get offended by video-game adaptations that don’t live up to (or even come near) their potential. That’s why I’m making this list. It’s a challenge to all of us to see these movies and derive some modicum of entertainment from them.
A couple of years ago I moved from beautiful Clearwater, Florida to Longmont, Colorado for a job opportunity. Not only was I leaving behind beautiful beaches and year long summers, I was also leaving a beloved local brewery (Dunedin Brewery, I still love you!) Would I have to start drinking Bud Light again?
FAR FROM IT.
One of the best things about Colorado is that it is arguably (go ahead and argue with me about this – I dare you) the best beer state in the country. Many people have compared the beer market in Colorado to the wine market in California, and the comparison is well founded. Damn near every town within 60 miles of where I live has at least one independent Micro-Brewery to call their own. The vast amount of local breweries have forced the companies to step up their game and produce delicious, top notch brews. There are so many choices out here that it’s hard to find a favorite. Well – it was hard… Until I tasted Left Hand Brewery’s Milk Stout.
I wonder if people in Japan watch clips of our commercials and say, “Are those people fucking crazy?” Here’s yet another example of the way the Japanese continue to ensure us that despite everything, there is always a country filled with people weirder then us!
