Jobs vs Gates 
Saturday, June 24, 2006, 11:05 AM - TV
Is it just me, but do the "characters" in the new Mac vs PC commercials look alot like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates?

It's a good way of identifying which system is which, but it plays with computer stereotypes.

The commercials are popular enough that they've been parodied already.

What do you get when you mix too much free time, cola (or any variation), and Mentos?

Way to many answers to list:

YouTube search
Google Video search
Yahoo! Video Search
Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Experiments

Ps: Don't try these at home!

Take a lame "plot" story, add a well know action-hero actor, and a Hollywood movie studio that listens to its fans - yes, really, it actually happened!

Mix it all up and you get:

Review: X-Men: The Last Stand 
Saturday, May 27, 2006, 06:32 PM - Review
They say the third time is the charm ... Boy, were they ever wrong, based on the third X-Men movie, X-Men: The Last Stand.

Pretty good action sequences (other than jerky jumping and flying stunts), special effects that mesh perfectly with the live props, and a decent storyline, unfortunately, don't offset the lack of emotion and lackluster directing/editing.

Worth it for X-Man and comic book fans. For everyone else, wait for the DVD and rent it.

At least they won't be making a 4th movie. Hopefully ...



Overall: 3.5 of 5

Reviews: RottenTomatoes, Rolling Stone
