Review: I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

Posted by Mark

I went and watched I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry tonight at the movies and I really wasn’t expecting it to be good. All the recent Adam Sandler movies have sucked, sucked in comparison to his best two movies, Billy Madison and Happy Gilmor. Still, I decided to watch this movie because of Kevin James from The King of Queens and I am glad I ended up watching this movie because its easily the funniest movie I’ve watched this year. This is actually the funniest Adam Sandler movie since Happy Gilmor.

First lets get something out of the way, you get to see Jessica Biel in her underwear in this movie and she is hot!

Now back to the guys in this movie and there are a ton of them. First you have the two main stars which are Adam Sandler and Kevin James. Then you have a few main supporting actors including Dan Aykroyd, Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, Nicholas Turturro and Nick Swardson. There are also kameo cameo appearances by David Spade, Rob Schnider and Rob Corddry from the TV show The Winner. The movie is just packed to the brim with all these comedians so its really non stop laughter from the beginning till the end. It’s easily the funniest movie I have watched in a really really long time and it’s going to get a full five out of five from me. I was going to give it a 4.5 because I would have loved to have seen more of David Spade and Rob Corddry and maybe even a kameo by Ricky Gervais but I guess nothing can be perfect.

Kinda Humid

Posted by Mark

I am in Lebanon now and the weather isn’t as cool as I hoped it would be. Its good enough to drive around in a convertible or on a motorbike but not cool enough for long walks. Its kinda humid, not Dubai kind of humidity but still enough to make you feel icky after a short walk. I can’t believe how hot it still is in Kuwait!

Amazon MP3 Store

Posted by Mark

Amazon MP3

I just checked out Amazon’s MP3 store and it turns out it works with Macs, iTunes and my iPod! The prices of the songs are cheaper than the iTunes store plus they are DRM free. You can try it out by visiting amazonmp3.com

Update: Ok now I am pissed, just tried buying a song and I got the following message:

We are sorry…

We could not process your order because of geographical restrictions on the product which you were attempting to purchase. Please refer to the terms of use for this product to determine the geographical restrictions.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Update 2: Ok I just tried it again and it worked. I had my primary address my UK mailbox for some reason so I changed it to my US address and it worked. I just purchased my first song and I am currently downloading it! You do not need a American credit card, I used my NBK one.

Update 3:
Finished downloading. The tiny Amazon software automatically added it to my iTunes and the song included a high resolution album art cover. Purchasing this song was just tooo easy so I am kinda worried now that this is going to be addictive.

New iMac

I passed by Mac&More tonight in Marina Mall and noticed they had the new iMacs on display but I forgot to ask how much they were selling for. I wish I had an excuse to buy one…

Eureka selling iPhone for KD400 and stealing other peoples artwork

Posted by Mark

Eureka iPhone

Moey took a picture of a Eureka ad in the newspaper for Eureka in which they are selling the 8GB iPhone for KD400! Thats over KD250 more expensive then if you bought it yourself off the Internet. If that wasn’t bad enough Moey also pointed out that the visual of their press ad was copied off a Deviant Art user! The picture above is of the Eureka advert side by side with the original artwork which can be found [Here]

Thanks Moey

Jazeera Airways calling customers liars *RETRACTED*

Posted by Mark

Jazeera Airways

Pearl, a fellow blogger sent an email to Jazeera Airways complaining about some problems she had with one of her flights. The response she got back from them was just unbelievable. The Jazeera Airways guy basically calls her a liar twice, accusing her of exaggerating and and making up facts.

I hope Pearl can post his email address and full name so someone at Jazeera can put some sense into him. [Link]

Update: Turns out I misread, someone left a comment on her blog on behalf of the airlines, it wasn’t a reply to her email which means there is no proof its from an actual Jazeera Airways employee. My mistake! [Link]

Atari Lynx

Atari Lynx

I’ve been nagging my partner at work to bring in his Atari Lynx and today he finally did. It’s HUGE. The last time I had played with one was back in 1991 and since then haven’t seen it in person again. If you stack 20 iphones side by side and on top of each other the pile might come out as big at the Lynx.
