Power Rangers, Angelina Jolie, and Jackie Fucking Chan!

pr-jolie-chan

A recent sale on used games at eStarland where you get $10 off of $40 or more gave me an incentive to tackle my wish list and get some games off of it. I did so with the Nintendo DS titles Power Rangers: Super Legends and Space Invaders Extreme 2 along with Castle Shikigami III for Wii.

Locally I also bought Power Rangers Samurai on DS and a new copy of Borderlands 2. I wouldn’t have bought Borderlands 2 already, but I had a lame Sprint rebate card to use up. Next time send a check.

Over on the movie front I bought Blu-ray copies of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Dances with Wolves (20th Anniversary), and Tomb Raider. I really liked Dances with Wolves more than I thought I would after the 3-hour version and then I saw the 4-hour version and I was still captivated. This is what lead me to seek out this edition on BD.

Move over BD because here comes DVD and it brings a third helping of Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. I also picked up Jackie Chan: 3 Film Collection for the purpose of wanting to see Project A. It was quite the entertaining film and as a bonus I also get Project A2 and Dragon Lord. All three movies have Jackie Chan playing the character of Dragon and were all directed by him.
