Trying To Kill Him And Failing ... Just Pisses Him Off

by Rainier on Dec. 14, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Doing all those chores over the weekend has worn us out, so we're due for a good night's sleep.

Adam is going to go see his advance premiere of TRON: Legacy tonight, so I'll be interested to hear what he thinks of it since he is quite a big fan of the franchise. The critical reviews of the movie have been somewhat on the negative side, even though we thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was a little bit surprised to read today that TRON: Legacy uses more advanced 3-D filming equipment than Avatar. It really wasn't noticeable at all, and I still think that Avatar is leaps and bounds ahead of any other 3-D movie we've seen since.

The video game, on the other hand, well ... that's not even in the same stratosphere. We'll have reviews for the game and movie later this week.

Couch-wise, we watched Fringe and The Sing-Off, which is quite entertaining despite being a capella singing.
