Back to The Grind...

Well, I'm back from Rhode Island, and DAMN!!! What a great trip! I definitely got my toy, comic, DVD and movie fix over the last four days. My two favorite additions to my collection are pictured above; The 12" Mechagodzilla and the 22" Alien figure. I can't get over the detail and poseability of this ginormous Alien figure! And it was on sale at Spencer Gifts for $30!!! I also picked up Hobgoblin & Stealthy Blue armor IronMan from the new line of the 3 3/4" Marvel figures, and I'm really happy with those as well. I went to three movies while in R.I.; "Couple's Retreat" - very funny and entertaining, "The Fourth Kind"; more of a horror flick than sci-fi. I liked how they lined up the "archival footage" with the movie re-enactment, and I felt genuinely disturbed when I left the theatre. Finally, we both went and saw "Paranormal Activity", which was very much in the vein of "The Blair Witch", but I think I liked this one better. It scared the Hell out of the wife, and made me jump a couple of times. They do a good job of slowly building the tension throughout, but the shakey camcorder gets old after a while.
