We had a nice holiday. Our son came with his girlfriend – her sister lives in the city. We saw them a bit, had Thanksgiving with them and a bunch of their friends (had a great time).
I played some Guitar Hero 2 and 3, some Rock Band, a quite a bit of Assassin’s Creed. I continue to feel that Rock Band is what Guitar Hero 3 should have been. I’ve finished the Medium solo tour (with all but a couple songs as 5 stars) and am about to start the Hard tour. If you only want to buy one of the guitar games, get Rock Band, in my opinion.
We went to see Beowulf, which was incredibly impressive. It has been years since I read Beowulf (high school, if ever) so I don’t know how closely they kept to the original text, but the story was solid. The visuals were just amazing. We saw it in 3D and while the 3D was a neat gimmick, I don’t think it really added much to the movie. If you can only see it in 2D, I don’t think you’ll be missing that much. You should see it in the theater – definitely a big screen movie.
