Messy Links

The Messy, True Story Behind The Making Of Destiny. Woof, this look at the development of Destiny isn't very flattering to Bungie. It seems like it wasn't that long ago that I was posting videos and screenshots eagerly anticipating Bungies newest megahit. Of course once I found out it would be console exclusive my interest dropped to zero. There's pretty much no point in picking up another game on the 360 (unless it's for the kiddos) and I'm all in on PC gaming right now to the point where I'll probably skip this current generation of consoles (again unless it's for the kiddos).

Anyhoo, the point is Destiny was built around a story line that was scrapped at sort of the last minute. What gamers were left with is a game that from all accounts looks good and is fun to play, but is missing any sort of coherent storyline. Some people say the original story was terrible some say it was good. Either way the team at Bungie had been working on it for nearly a decade when they decided to scrap it at the last minute, that is not ideal.

Paul Walker Furious 7 VFX shots. I'll give it to the guys behind The 7ast And The 7urious, I had no idea they had to CGI Paul Walker into so many scenes. The end scene where he's racing Dom through the hills it was pretty obvious but all these other scenes looked pretty natural.

Ron Howard’s Willow is still raucous and ridiculous 27 years later. Willow came out during a time period where I was reading a lot of movie novelizations. Not sure what the deal was but I remember there was a period of time in the late 80s early 90s where I was reading novelizations because I couldn't go to the theater and see the movie. I'm not sure if it was just that my parents didn't want to take me or if I had no friends or no money or what. I distinctly remember reading Dick Tracy, Batman, and Willow all before I eventually saw them on videotape. I'm sure there were more.

I think I didn't understand that there was a difference between reading a book that had a movie and a movie that had a book because I remember reading a lot of both.

I don't know what my point is other than Willow is a rad movie. I'm going to try and watch it with my son this weekend.
