5.0 out of 5 stars Lovin' the Logo, June 4 2014
I purchased this book under a recommendation of a teacher of mine who showed it to me. It's a very easy read, takes only a day or two. That said, it's filled with fantastic information, not just for starting graphic designers such as myself, but for experienced professionals as well. A great insight into what logos are, the correct design process to use, what to ask during a brief with a client and how communicate with each other to achieve a successful relationship, and a suggestion on how to charge for your services, etc... it's very much to the point and direct, with great insight into how to design a relevant logo that not only stands out but you and your client will love. I will most definitely be reading this book more then once.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maleficent Is Not A Villain, June 2 2014
This review is from: Maleficent [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is the truth in her new movie, "Maleficent." Not once is she portrayed as the self proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil" but as a bitterly scorned woman. The script itself was pretty awful with a disjointed story that left more questions then answers. It just kind of jumped around without any real sense of direction. Now on the pros, Angelina was brilliant as the dark fairy. The movie was also beautiful to look at. It had nice touches here and there, with very minimal nods to the original. The "breaking of the curse" part, though I won't go into detail, came as a nice surprise and I appreciated what they were trying to do with it. The ending itself was pretty horrible. All in all, at the end of the day, there just didn't seem any point to it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Great Sound!, May 30 2014
I bought these for $40.00. I wanted some nice speakers for my new MacBook because I listen to my iTunes everyday and wasn't impressed with the restricted sound quality of my Mac's speakers, though good, not ideal for listening to music in it's true glory. The moment I set these up and started listening to the first few songs I was amazed! For such cheap speakers you get amazing sound and the bass is even better. You can turn it up or down to your liking but when it's up and you are listening to some serious EDM you get the full effect of it! The only down side is there is no down side, which is good! The speakers are a sleek and modern design, very Mac looking (I bought the white ones). I'd imagine they would be really great for parties as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring with zero chemistry, May 17 2014
I love indie movies. But this was a great pile of turd. No chemistry between the leads and the the plots were disjointed. Michael Cera is of course doing his awkwardly social shtick. This movie went no where and was just boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haters gonna hate, May 4 2014
I loved this sequel! The chemistry between Gwen and Peter was spot on again! I loved the CGI and music. Made it hip and modern. The villains were great. The ending however wasn't great. The whole Rhino bit was anticlimatic and they should have just ended it at... well, if you've seen it you know what I'm talking about. I honestly don't know why there is so much hate for this. Was it as good as the original trilogy? No, but that doesn't make it bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars American Hustle, Feb. 16 2014
Loved it. Loved the characters and enjoyed the acting as well as the plot line. Just a fun movie with dysfunctional relationships and love, lust, money and of all else, hustling.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hell of a good time, Feb. 16 2014
If you don't like your movies to have fowl language, nudity, drug use, violence, alcohol, sex, homosexuality and basically everything else that is considered "immoral" by some, then for the love of God please do see this movie. Just kidding, you'll hate it. If you hate this movie though, you are a very boring and lame human being.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Bling Ring Stings, Jan. 25 2014
I was very excited to see this because of the concept. However the movie was terribly executed. The first half was alright but the second half was downright painful and boring. The script was horrendous and even the campiness was lame. The parents of these kids were a joke and I literally laughed at their idiocy. I believe this is Emma Watson's worst performance and I literally burst out laughing when she was being taken from her home by the cops and put in the cop car ("ouch! ouch!"). Could have been so much better... I loved the soundtrack though.

Utter garbage and humiliation. Couldn't even watch to the end. Bad, bad, bad. Just bad. Bad. Just bad. There are places in cinema hell reserved for films like this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage, Dec 20 2013
Good concept, bad result. Forced action scenes and very little "magic." The acting was mediocre which is sad because of it's A-list talent. The big " revelations" were awful. No development with the leads thus me not caring about them. No emotion no nothing. No comedy. Had high hopes for this but they were dashed. One of the worst.
