It's Not A Tickling Competition. These Lads Are Out To Hurt Each Other.

by Rainier on Nov. 15, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

The weather was gorgeous yesterday, but since we were so tuckered out, we didn't take advantage of it. We slept, ate breakfast, played Stronghold Kingdoms, Vindictus and Smurfs' Village (iPod), and then we watched Bones and Fringe.

To continue our "let's hide from the sun" campaign, we saw Unstoppable (Denzel Washington,Rosario Dawson, Chris Pine). We were already looking forward to it, but it turned out to be much better than we expected — a thrill ride from start to finish. If you like suspense and a few butt-clenchers, then this is definitely a movie to watch.

If last week's Black Ops wasn't your cup of tea, then this week will bring a slew of new titles, like Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Sonic Colors and a bunch of others.
