We’re trying out a new segment this week, ditching Geek Spew and replacing it with something we’re calling Geek Academy¬†where we are gonna throw down some knowledge on things you might not be familiar with. I’m kicking it off this time with a lesson on something called The Loudness War. Let us know what you think!

Here’s the link to give Perpetual Geek Machine: Show #00046 a listen!

The Call Of Duty Movie? Nope! Act of Valor movie review

Act_of_Valor_m-640x361Like many of you, I enjoy playing military first person shooters. When I first saw the trailer for “Act of Valor,” I immediately thought it was about as close as Hollywood has come to making “Call of Duty” into a live-action film. The games are practically movies already with their intense action set-pieces and global plots. I became excited and I immediately started to count the days for the theatrical release. However, I never thought that “Act of Valor” would hit me the way that it did. As I left the theater I wasn’t settling down after seeing what looked like a promising action movie. I actually felt a little disturbed and I wished I hadn’t seen the movie in the first place.

Somehow I don’t think that is what the directors intended.
