147

This is a hands-on review of the iRulu 9.7″ Android Tablet [AZ941]. I did an earlier review of another iRulu Tablet about nine months ago. At the time, the purpose was to try to find a low-cost android tablet that met all the requirements I was looking for; nothing really high end, but still very …

Movie review: Robocop (2014) – The attempted reboot.

Robocop-2014-movie-review.jpg

The reboot version of RoboCop came out this Friday. I’m not a big fan of the obnoxious jerks that go to the movie theaters on Friday night to watch these types of movies, so I typically wait until Saturday morning to watch them. The 80′s version of RoboCop has been one of those movies that …

Techie Review: iRulu 10” Android tablet

android_tablet_irulu_10_inch.jpg

I have been throwing around the idea of buying a low-end android tablet to play with as a toy. To go so far as to think that I might take a cheap android tablet, strap some sticky magnets to the back of it and mount it to my refrigerator. The idea of having a android …

Movie Review: Elysium– Good But Has A Strong Political Undertone

Elysium_movie_review.jpg

This past weekend, I went to go see the new movie Elysium with Matt Damon. Science fiction movies are always kind of a draw for me. Science fiction pretty much guarantees that the story is going to be somewhat interesting and shows off what Hollywood is doing with the latest graphics. Elysium is a movie …

Red_2_movie_logo_thumb.jpg

I’m finally getting around on doing movies that I see. This past weekend, I would go see RED 2. RED 2 being the sequel to the original release of RED [retired and extremely dangerous].

Movie Review: Oblivion [meh- it's okay]

Oblivion_movie_review.jpg

Last night, I went to go see the new movie called Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise. I’m a big fan of quality science fiction movies. Most of the time, if the actors are decent and the effects are done well, the overall message of the picture will come across and should be fairly good. In Oblivion …
