Well, being the big animation nerd I am, Its no surprise that I was one of the first in line to see Wall-E, pixars latest film.

I'm going to sound like a broken record here, but its beautiful. Wall-E currently has a 97% at rotten tomatoes, and I can really say much more than whats already been said. So, I'll just highlight a few of my favorite reviews.

"Some day, there will be college courses devoted to this movie" -Lou Lumenic, New York Post

"I must drop my inhibitions about dropping the M word -- especially since I've already used magnificent -- and call WALL-E the masterpiece that it is." -Joe Moregenson Wall Street Journal

So yeah, I can't really put it any better than these guys.

Go see Wall-E.

A couple of times.

Its a little slow at the Corps today as I'm waiting for feedback from a director, so I thought I'd do a review of my cup of tea this morning. And if theres one thing I know, its that bloggers effin' love reviews.

So lets go!!!

First thing, "Why Lightning Review, Nate?" Well, to be frank. Its a quick widdle review. I'm not made outta free time ya know!

So today on the Lighting Review, we have: MY MORNING CUP OF TEA

Yes, that is a huge pile of kleenex's on my desk. Yes I have severe allergies. It sux.

Anyways, my first reaction to this mornings cup of tea was, "EFF, TOO HOT!" And about 3 minutes later, I thought it tasted pretty good. Or maybe that was because my taste buds melted off and I couldn't taste a thing. Either way, I enjoyed this cup of tea. It filled my empty heart with joy and harmony.

I suggest you all buy it and drink it.


This has been another...

Masterminded by director Timur Bekmambetov, (the guy whos directing Wanted with Angelina Jolie), Timur mocks us gullible westerners on his own personal blog, which you can check out here. (If you read Russian).

Office Worker Goes Absolutely Insane - Watch more free videos

What do you guys think? Real? Fake?
Personally, I'm leaning towards real- but ya never know these days!
