All kind of things I do in my free time

Things you can do when your nephew is visiting

The time had finally come to produce the sequel to my (in)famous Lego Train movie. But because I wanted to surpass the first part of the trilogy I needed the right equipment and crew:

  1. More tracks
  2. An exotic filming location
  3. A better camera (unfortunately still no video camera, blame Sony for that)
  4. And last but not least a talented young director:
    Robin Taylor

Now we are ready for action (please click on the picture to watch the movie):

The Second Train Movie

Game of the Month: Super Mario Galaxy

Almost a year after Nintend launched their new console they have finally released the first Super Mario adventure for the Wii: Super Mario Galaxy. Silke and I have been waiting of this game for a long time. Silke ordered it in advance months ago and we were very happy when it was finally shipped on the 15th. Royal Mail were in top form again. It only took them eleven days to deliver it.

And the game was definitely worth the wait: lovely comic graphics with sometimes dizzying 3D effects, nice gameplay and just the right level of difficulty guarantee a lot of fun. Silke and I already spent several hours exploring the galaxy and fighting with cute monsters in turn. And I’m quite sure that we will spend many more enjoyable hours doing that. 🙂

Movie of the Week: Stardust

After spending most of the last two days putting our stuff into boxes Silke and I decided we had earned a break. We went to the movies after dinner and watched Stardust.

It is hard to say what kind of movie it is. I would personally call it a Romantic Fantasy Adventure Comedy. It is however very easy to like it: a nice story, good special effects, lots of humour and actors at their best make it really enjoyable. Especially Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro are brilliant.
