Ratchet & Clank Movie Trailers

February 5, 2016 By · No Comments

How many of my readers are actually gamers or have a child or two that love playing video games? Maybe you have a spouse that loved them as a child (or still do)? Chances are if you did you’ve probably already heard of this but just in case you have not I wanted to let ya’ll know of a new movie coming out that is based off a video game. I know at least two kids (boys) that’ll be watching and probably right along with their daddy.

Ratchet & Clank is A CG-animated movie based on the iconic PlayStation video game. Two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy “lombax” who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity.

Lugz Makes for Great Snow Boots!

Be Prepared for the Weather with Lugz

When I moved back to Indiana all I had were my faithful summer shoes, which means they were basically fancy flip flops and for those that know the weather doesn’t always stay warm. In fact we would quickly get rain, summer again, rain again, torrential rain, etc. I knew I’d have to get something warm and with the winter months coming I’d probably want to lean more towards boots, actually Lugz. I mean who wouldn’t when you are about to get snow. The only problem was this year we wouldn’t get snow before Christmas like I originally thought, in fact we had a Spring-like Christmas…it was almost as if I had never left Twentynine Palms.

Best motion picture, drama

The Revenant

Best motion picture, musical or comedy

The Martian- I haven’t seen this one but have heard good things. Have you seen it? I did see “Trainwreck” but had to shut it off. I will one day go back and watch it.
