#23 Film: The Three Amigos
I’ve seen this movie dozens of times, and rightfully so, it’s absolutely hilarious. Three Amigos has a sort of Mel Brooks/ Monty Python feel to it, as it’s a spoof of old westerns. The story goes like this: Three wanna-be actors are offered a job by the small Mexican town of Santo Poco. It’s a request to get rid of the villainous El Guapo. Thinking it’s actually an offer for a movie, the Three Amigos set out to the town and face-off against El Guapo himself. There are tons of hilarious moments I don’t want to ruin for you, so just go watch it. Right now.
#23 Game: World of Goo
I just discovered this indie gem on Steam. And I’m loving every minute of it. The gameplay, the art, the sounds, the story…. It’s all fantastic. And, as much as I try, I don’t think I can describe it to well. It’s just so unique that it defies explanation. The closest that I think anyone can come to explaining it is in it’s entry on The Top 10 Independent Developer (Indie) Games On Steam, found on Gamefaqs, written by soniczero9:
Indie games are supposed to try something new, and World of Goo certainly does that. Firstly, if Dr. Seuss ever made a video game, it would look, play, and sound exactly like World of Goo (and who doesn’t love them some Dr. Seuss?). Secondly I’ll bet that you won’t even notice that you’re essentially doing physics problems when working your way though this game. I apologize if that revelation ruined the game for some of you, but you’ll get so caught up in the way the game is presented and having fun to even notice. Who wouldn’t have fun building bridges and towers out of balls of goo to get to a pipe to save your remaining goos, in order to end the tyrannous reign of the World of Goo Corporation? What else could anyone ask for?
