It seems that people like vampires…and the vampires they find our prevalent in theatrical movies (Dracula, Twilight, Near Dark), Television shows (True Blood, Vampire Diary’s, Dracula) and of course books…
There has always been a sort of romantic nod to Dracula, sure he might give a tremendous kiss on the neck but lets remember, that kiss usually brings about death – or at least towns people all reeking of garlic. Either way, that romanticism with The Vampire is a 10 billion dollar revenue creator to the economy according to the article from 2011 at DailyFinance.com – This during the Twilight Saga wrap up but the genre continues

There are some Video Game titles out there that just scream the need for a movie Boot up. I would gladly fork over the 8 bucks to see a Big Screen Version of the story lines and characters found in Call Of Duty.
In the world of Game to Movie Tie-ins, One of the titles that has been talked about heavily is the big Screen version of Need For Speed!
The Film co-produced by Electronic Arts is Coming to Theaters March 14th 2014. The film version of Need For Speed Stars Aaron Paul (Jesse – Breaking Bad) as Tobey Marshall, a recently released jail inmate that was setup by his business partner and wrongfully convicted and put away for the crimes. His release means revenge against Dino, his ex partner, played by Dominic Cooper. The actor most recently seen as Ian Fleming in the BBC presentation of “Fleming”
The Race is on with producers promising big action and great stunts. The Film is directed by Stunt Man turned Director Scott Waugh.
I received a copy of Call of Duty Black Ops II yesterday from Activision, actually the good folks sent me the Xbox360 Hardened Edition which includes a ton of extras for those chomping at the bit for more Call of Duty.
We also received the PC version which is available as a Steam Download. I’m still one of those that likes to have the title on DVD and for the television segment on KMSB Fox 11 always great to show the Box! Either way, I fired up the title last night and while I had a little confusion getting into the game, specifically to play the Zombie version of the game but eventually got in to play the campaign which featured a well produced story line. The game play is fluid and the characters are unlike I have seen before in detail! I completed a couple of missions which included calling in Air Support as well as firing big guns off a boat.
I would recommend the Hardened Edition for those fans of the Call of Duty series. The Box set includes a Collectible Limited Edition Game Case with special artwork, Limited Edition Challenge coins, Access to Nuke town Zombies game which puts you in a 1950’s Era Nuclear ravaged neighborhood and the Official Soundtrack by Jack Wall with the theme from Trent Reznor.
The game play is fun and action filled but certainly not geared at the “Young Un’s” with expletives peppered in throughout the game.
