It looks fun.  If desktop gaming is your thing, and you also happen to be a Neil Gaiman fan, this might be the game for you!

Neil Gaimangame: wayward manorgamesvideo games
The other day my wife revealed to me that she had never seen the 1989 Batman film by Tim Burton.  I had to rectify this immediately, as Batman was my all-time favorite movie.  
By the time it ending I was asking myself “What the hell is wrong with me?”  I’ve been comparing every Batman movie to this for years, and it wasn’t as half as great as I remembered it… Still, it was better than Joel Schumacher’s films!
It’s funny how tastes can change over the years.  I think I’ve been spoiled by Marvel’s films, and Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.  Now, I seem to expect bigger special effects, more story and more menacing villains and more heroic, larger than life heroes.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not horrible!  This was still a fun movie, and it makes me wish I could see Tim Burton could/would have done had he made a third film aside (from killing off the main bad guy), but I’m not so sure it’s the best Batman.
There was a time when I thought no one could play Batman/Bruce Wayne but Michael Keaton.  I’m letting go of that.  I’m ready to see what Ben Affleck can do with the part.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
I’ve been wanting to see this movie every since I saw the behind the scenes video on vimeo a few months ago.  The use of matte paintings, green screen, models, digital effects and Bill Murray showing up on set pushed this to the top of my “To Rent” list when it appeared on iTunes last night.
The Grand Budapest Hotel takes place in three time periods, and tells the story of a hotel concierge and the newest hotel lobby boy.  It has just the right amount of humor, drama and action that you’d expect in a Wes Anderson film.
Now, there are three types of people in this world.  Those who love everything that Wes Anderson does.  There are those that loath everything about him, and go out of their way to bleach the ground he walks on so there is no chance of him leaving any influence behind.  Then there are those that go “Meh. I just don’t get it!”  If you’re one of the latter two, you may want to go spend your money on The Lego Movie instead, but if you’re a hardcore Anderson fan, then by all means, indulge yourself.
In my mind, it’s hard to top The Life Aquatic, and that’s a ridiculous standard to hold any movie to.

Original Sin #4 or 8
I’ll be the first to admit, I didn’t have high hopes for this series.  I’ve been shying away from the big comic events over the past couple of years, but this one has got a vice grip on my attention, and is one of the books I look forward to the most every other Wednesday.
It takes me back to DC Comics’ Identity Crisis event from a few years ago.  I know a lot of people took issue with it, and the way a lot of the characters were treated in it, but it was a murder mystery set in a larger than life universe, and that’s exactly what I love to read in comics.  Mystery.  Putting all these obscure characters together on teams, making them work together to uncover answers that lead to more questions.  Identity Crisis was the last time I remember eagerly waiting to find out what happens next, and this series, and all the tie ins promise to reveal a lot more about our heroes that a lot of readers would rather not know.
This might not be every reader’s cup of tea, but if you love comics, are familiar with the less popular characters (some of which may not make it out of this alive) and enjoy a good mystery, then this is the series for you!  Also, it’s really not too late to jump in and get up to speed.  We’re only half way to the end!
