October Acquisitions


Spider-Man 2 (PS2) – I wanted this because not only because it’s based on my favorite of the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films, but apparently it is pretty good as a game too.

Urban Reign (PS2) – It was cheap and seems like a decent enough 3D beat-’em-up.

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy (PS2) – Now that I actually have all three Deux Ex games, I can start playing this one in the near future.

Kick Master (NES) – I’ve been on the look out for this game for quite awhile and I finally found a copy for the first time. It was released in 1992 in North America and no where else. I found it in pretty poor shape, but cleaned it up and it turned out quite nice!

Fortified Zone (GB) – A pretty decent isometric overhead action game by Jaleco.

Legend of Kage 2 (DS) – I’ve heard this is a good and challenging side-scrolling action platformer.


This is the stack of Blu-ray movies I have bought in a last few months. The version of Total Recall I got is the new Mind-Bending Edition that is a huge step up from the previous BD release. It has a better transfer and has most, but not all of the special features from previous releases on DVD. Ed Wood just came out recently for the first time on BD. It’s probably my favorite Tim Burton film and I highly recommend it. Eventually I’m going to get the newer Spider-Man 2 BD release since this one only has the movie on it, but for now, it’ll suffice. I never saw The Prestige until I bought this copy and I can say it is my favorite Christopher Nolan movie, right up there with The Dark Knight. Just like Ed Wood, Ray is a great biopic, though a lot sadder in tone. As I said earlier in this blog post, Spider-Man 2 is my favorite of the Raimi trilogy. It lacks the stupid emo crap from Spider-Man 3 and has a better villian than Spider-Man 1. Having said that I don’t enjoy how SM2 spends the first hour making Peter Parker out to be the biggest loser ever. It feels really forced since they don’t know when to stop and move on with the movie. The Rock is the only Michael Bay film I actually like thanks to Harris and Connery and the actual existence of character development. The Fifth Element is a thoroughly enjoyable, fun sci-fi romp and I feel the special effects still hold up really well. Black Hawk Down is a solid war movie and that’s all I have to say about that. *heh*
