#7 Movie: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
It’s got Mike Myers, so it must be good! This James Bond spoof is truly hilarious. There are several scenes that will make you fall over laughing, particularly the three-point-turn scene that just may well be the funniest thing I have ever seen. The whole movie is about Austin Powers, who was a secret agent in the ’60s. When his arch-nemesis Dr. Evil cryogenically freezing himself, Austin does the same. Then, in 1997, Dr. Evil thaws out, ready for vengeance. Then the British Ministry Defense un-freezes Austin to battle Dr. Evil. Austin Powers id one of those ‘love-it or hate-it’ kind of movies. With a 69% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 51% on Metacritic, the world is almost completely split down the middle as to whether this is a good movie or not.
#7 Game: Team Fortress 2
I have spent 135 hours of my life into this one game. But that’s nothing, I’ve seen people on Steam with over 600 hours spent on this team-based online multiplayer shooter. Even though it came out in 2007, it is still the most played Steam game of all time. With around 95,000 people playing every day. Oh, and did I mention it’s free? This is easily one of the most balanced FPS out there. Instead of focusing on having the best weapon and shooting first, you must use pure skill, a word that a lot of players of Call of Duty and Halo confuse with finding the cheapest weapons fastest. Seriously, how many Halo matches have you lost because some guy grabbed a rocket launcher five seconds into the match and just started demolishing people? And you could forget the ‘Noob Tube’ from Call of Duty? Team Fortress 2 doesn’t have that, so when you lose a match, you know it’s because of the other team’s skill is better than your team’s skill. This game has nine classes, the Scout, the Soldier, the Pyro, the Heavy, the Demoman, the Engineer, the Medic, the Sniper, and the Spy. I don’t want to explain all the classes again, just read my review for Team Fortress 2 here: https://theepicblogsofcrunchyfrog.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/team-fortress-2-review/ . It will explain everything. For now, just let me say that this is one of the most addictive games ever, and you get a lot of bang for your buck, not to mention this game is free!
