   This morning I woke up and I put on the T.V. and saw that one of Mel Brooks best movies was on, Young Frankenstein. Well pretty much anything Mel Brooks does is good. Young Frankenstein stars Gene Wilder, Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle, Madeline Kahn, Kenneth Mars, Gene Hackman. Young Frankenstein is a parody of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
   Gene Wilder plays Dr. Frankenstein. He is ashamed of his grandfather, Dr. Victor Frankenstein, who was the first to create The Creature. Because of this, he goes by the name of Dr. Fronkensteen. When he receives word that he has  inherited his family's estate in Transylvania, he heads out to try and find his true destiny. When he arrives in Transylvania, he is met by his new assistant Igor, the grandson of Dr. Victor Frankenstein's assistant Egor. If you don't laugh when Marty Feldman comes onto the screen as Igor, then you have something wrong with you. You will find yourself laughing through out the whole movie. Peter Boyle plays Frankenstein. He really does not talk through most of the movie yet he plays it great.
   If you have never seen this movie, you should go out and see it soon. Young Frankenstein was also called one of the top 50 comedy of all times. And if you are wondering what my title means, then check out the movie and you will understand.

   One of my favorite movies is Taken. Taken stars Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, a ex-CIA agent who's daughter is kidnapped in Paris. Mills heads out to Paris to try and find her, and unravels a whole sex trafficking scheme that the Albanian Mafia has going in France. He slowly finds clues to his daughters were a bouts and the people involved. There are a bunch of action and intense moments through out the whole movie. You are kept on your toes and there are really no dull parts though out the film. I first heard about this movie from a friend, he insisted I see it. And a pond seeing Taken, it instantly became one of my top movies. I would put it in my top 5 best movies. I would highly suggest this movie to anyone who loves action and thriller movies.


Ok, so I changed the name of my blog today. I was looking at the title that I had put, SPORTS, VIDEO GAMES, AND MOVIES OH MY, and was not really feeling it. So I decided to change it. I still plan on talking about the same things, mostly video games, but I just need to change the name. I am much happier with this name, I am a big WWF fan so I'm put this one out there for all the Cole Miners out there. If you are a WWF fan you know what I'm talking about!!!! But like I said, the same topics are going to be talked about.


Ok so its almost time for the Raider vs Steelers game. This is a big game for us Oakland Raider fans. We are in 1st place in our division and we need this win to prove that we can hang with the big boys. And I know we can. We beat the Steelers last year and I know we can do it again this year. The Raiders need to run that ball down there throat and our QB Jason Campbell need to get the ball to the receivers and not make any mistakes. And the Raiders defense need to stay tough, stick with there man and hit Big Ben(the Steelers QB) as much as possible. The Raiders need to play hard and tough and we can put this game in the books as a win!!!! I believe that the Oakland Raiders will win and that we will stay in 1st place, and we will make the playoffs. This is a Raider team that is focused and strong, and they, as there slogan says, they JUST WIN BABY!!!!!!!

   Ok, so Super Metroid came out for the Super Nintendo back in the 90's. This was and still is one of my favorite video games ever. In fact, to this day I will go back and still play it. I believe that this game was a little ahead of its time. It was not just another side croller. The graphics were great, for what graphics were back in the day. I beat the hell of that game. The funny thing is, I can't always remember stuff I learned in school, but I can remember what I need to do and were to go in Super Metroid. It is still funny to me that there are some great games out there and they have some great story's and graphics. And at the end of the day, I would still rather play Super Metroid.
   The story is good, and the boss battles are fun and challenging. The music is good and keep you in the game. One of my favorite power ups is when u get the super speed. When you take off and you can slowly hear the suit powering up as you go faster and building up speed is great. And then when you have the power all the way up, you can use that power to shot straight up or across the screen to power through a wall or if you need to get a extra boost to get up to a high ledge or heath tank. This will always be one game that I know I can always go back to and play thought and never get tried of it. Let me know that your favorite game that you can always go back and play and wont get tried of.
   I wrote this when I first started out. I have improved a lot in my writing since then. For a better review on Super Metroid fellow this link to a updated post I did for this great Super Nintendo game. http://patricksthoughts64.blogspot.com/2012/02/best-game-on-super-nintendosuper.html


  Well this is my first blog I have ever had. I plan on talking about sports, video games, and movie as the name of my blog is titled. I will be giving my thoughts and my opinion on things that are happening in sports and my favorite teams. I am a Oakland A's, Oakland Raider, L.A. Laker, San Jose Sharks, and Cal Bears fan. I also like the Florida Gators.
   As for video games, I play a lot. I will be giving reviews and reports on games that are coming out and that I have played. Movies are one of my favorite things to go and do. I love all types of movies and will be writing about them when I go and see them. Also do reports on movies from the past and movies that I think you should go see.
   I really hope I fine people that are interested in my thoughts and opinion, and look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinion, good or bad. I am also apart of a video game podcast called, Knights Of The Video Game Table. You can find us on iTunes and at www.kvgtpodcast.com. If you like what I have to say, or even if you don't, please tell your friends and leave comments.
