…It’s TGI Friday: Bounce Shot?

Bounce Shot

Bounce Shot from Nigoro is a mix of Breakout and Space Invaders, wrapped in a cute and colorful package that begs you to play.

To get started, just move your cursor around the screen with your mouse, and your ship will follow. You can shoot at the Bouncians as they move across and then slowly down the screen, and the goal is to kill them all before they either kill you, or reach the Earth.

To make things interesting, you start with just two shots (so aim carefully), but as you shoot down the bomb filled Blue Bouncians, you can gain up to six additional shots for rapid-fire kills.

The trick to the game though is that shots can bounce off of walls, and your shots are not immune, so they can also bounce back and kill you too, meaning you can’t just go in with guns a blazin’ and hope that they die before you do.

In addition, some of the Bouncians are armored, so you’ll need to utilize the bounce back feature to curve the bullets around and then into your target. Don’t worry though, if Angelina can do it, then so can you.

A boss arrives every ten levels, and the goal is to score as many points as possible, so challenge a friend and see who can bounce better, because sometimes, it’s not just about who has the bigger gun.

Are you ready?

…Angelina Jolie is sexy?

Angelina Jolie As Laura Croft In Tomb RaiderShe had to beat out Jessica Alba and Halle Berry to take top spot, but Angelina Jolie was recently named the Sexiest Female Superhero for her role as Laura Croft in the Tomb Raider movies.

The Sexiest Male Superhero was George Clooney for his role as Batman in Batman and Robin, beating out Christopher Reeve and Christian Bale for top sot among the men.

I guess I never knew the ability to wear skimpy clothing was considered a super power.

…It’s Movie Monday: School For Scoundrels?

School of Scoundrels

Despite its Rotten score on the Rotten Tomatoes’ Critics Tomatometer:

Rotten Tomatoes’ Critics Tomatometer

I decided to rent School of Scoundrels this weekend, hoping that it was one of those movies that critics just don’t understand. Possibly because of my lowered expectations, I was pleasantly surprised by this charmingly sweet comedy that pit the wits of Billy Bob Thornton (of Angelina Jolie fame) against that of Jon Heder (of Napoleon Dynamite fame).

There were enough plot twists and turns to keep things edgy and unpredictable, and enough laugh out loud moments to keep things light hearted and moving, that by the end, I found I had actually enjoyed myself. Plus, the Rotten Tomatoes’ Users Tomatometer scored a somewhat solid 53%, so I know there are a few out there who agree with me. If you’re looking for a good date night renter, or just want something a little different for your comedy movie night, School of Scoundrels should definitely be on your list.

Grade: B
Rent Worthy: Yes
