Finally I get a chance to review a website that has nothing to do about Web Hosting. This week I was introduced to Lucky Land and was asked to take the time and review the website. Lets start with the website’s logo:

I have to say, it is a bit disappointing and reminds me of logos from the websites of the early nineties. I have no problem with the colors or the basic concept of the logo, but with a name like “Lucky Land” you could do so much more. You could use aspects of an amusement park or carnival games. Something flashy or modern even. People remember cool logos, this one is a bit too bland and forgettable for my taste. Lets move on to the basic site features.

At its core, the website is an information hub about online and live card and slot machine gaming. It has five key articles, they are “Online vs Offline casinos”, “Different games”, “Party Casino”, “Bonuses”, “Slot games”, and “Software”. Here is a screenshot from the website’s main page:

The articles are between 300 and 500 words each. They are written to be accessible to everyone that might check out the website. They are far from complicated which is good, but sadly that also causes them to be not as in depth as they could be. Or should be.

Release Date: January 20, 2012
Studio: Sony, Screen Gems
Director: Måns Mårlind & Björn Stein (Shelter, Storm)
Starring: Kate Beckinsale, India Eisley, Michael Ealy, Kris Holden-Ried, and Stephen Rea.
Plot: [Underworld Awakening] brings a stunning new dimension to the epic battle between Vampires and Lycans, as the first film in the franchise to shoot in 3D. 

Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.

Thoughts: The Underworld series ranks right up there with the Resident Evil movie series in terms of guilty pleasures. It is awful, yet at the same time strangely addictive and entertaining. Plus, it’ll be great to see Kate Beckinsale return as the vampire who loves squeezing herself into skin tight leather and shooting guns with an endless supply of bullets. It hits theaters at the end of January. It is a little surprising that Scott Speedman’s Michael Corvin isn’t returning along with Beckinsale, but maybe that is just a little surprise that the action flick has in store. We’ll have to wait and see.

Dark Horse Comics is teaming up with writer Brian wood and artist Becky Cloonan to bring Conan the Barbarian back to comics with an adaptation of “Queen of the Black Coast”. The recent film might not have done so hot, but I think fans of the character will (or should) give the new series a chance. I’ve been a big fan of Conan in all of its forms and I like that “Black Coast” shows a different time for the character, read the series description:

In this sweeping adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s fan-favorite “Queen of the Black Coast,” Conan turns his back on the civilized world and takes to the high seas alongside the pirate queen Belit, setting the stage for an epic of romance, terror, and swashbuckling. This is Conan as you’ve never seen him, with the combination of one of Robert E. Howard’s greatest tales and the most dynamic creative team in comics!

Check out Conan fighting the ocean on February 8th, 2012.

Wow, it has been a while since I was asked to do one of these. I might be a little rusty when it comes to reviewing web sites, but lets see what I can do. Find web hosting is a directory that helps visitors do just what the website name says; find web hosting. The website is completely free to use and their about section says that their focus is to “provide clear, objective information to help you find the right web hosting provider to support your personal or business needs.

Their directory of top web hosts is put together through a variety of information, including price, money back offer, set up/domain costs, bandwidth, performance, reviews and overall score. Above is a picture of the website’s main page. The color scheme of blue and silver works well and is consistent throughout the website.  In fact, the whole website is very clean and well put together. Sections are easy to find and there is a lot of information presented, yet it does not feel like it is an information overload.

The top menu bar includes links for “Compare Hosts”, “Forum”, “Resources”, “About”, “News”, and “Contact”. As you can imagine the “Compare Hosts” section is the most useful for someone actually looking for a web host. “Resources” is also informative, with articles such as Do It Yourself Graphics, Page Optimization and SQL Server Databases. Themain direction of top web hosts includes sections such as “Business Hosting”, “Cheap Hosting”, “Green Hosting”, and “Ecommerce Hosting” to name a few.

If you give the directory a chance, please come back and let me know how useful it was for you by leaving a comment below!

Release Date: January 13, 2012
Studio: Anchor Bay
Director: Xavier Gens (Frontier(S), Hitman)
Starring: Lauren German, Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Eklund, and Rosanna Arquette.
Plot: In this graphic and violent  post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers- all tenants of a New York high rise apartment- escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement.

Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psychosexual torment.

As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another  becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no proise of salvation on the outside.

Thoughts: This sci-fi flick originally saw release in March via South by Southwest, then also screened at the San Diego Comic Con. I have not yet seen it, but it looks like an interesting take on the post-apocalyptic sub genre. The visuals look awesome and the cast features genre fan favorite Michael Biehn and the underratted Gilmore Girls and Heroes alum Milo Ventimiglia. I’ve always loved the concept of strangers locked in a single location as the world around them ends. The character study of what they might do as things get worse and worse is very interesting. You can check out the opening scene of the film over at its official website.

I don’t really think that Sarah Michelle Gellar has been not getting work or anything. She’s had a kid! But at the same time, she’s been out of the spotlight for a good while now and I’m so glad that she’s finally got her own TV show again (Ringer on the CW). You’ve probably figured out by now that I was and am still a huge Buffy fan. I own all of the seasons on DVD and watch them every so often on a rainy Saturday. When I heard that she had her own show again, I knew that I was going to be watching.

I did my homework on it before the show premiered and while I was looking up more info for it online, I came across some Clear wireless Reviews. After I looked through it a little bit I decided to change over my apartment’s internet service to it.

I think that I’m really liking the show so far, even if it wasn’t starring Sarah Michelle Gellar I would really love it. It’s definitely staying on my DVR list.
