David Carroll’s United Airlines Song Sequel Is Live

David CarrollIn probably one of the most unique ways to express outrage at poor customer service, David Carroll has posted to YouTube the second music video of the three he promised United Airlines he would make after baggage handlers for the airline damaged his guitar and their poor customer service has done nothing to make amends for it.

As some of my readers will recall, I posted about his first video which garnered Carroll a lot of media attention for his unorthodox method of sharing his complaint with the airline to the world. Click here to read my original blog entry on the matter.

The new video is below. Be sure to watch to the end of it as there’s a really funny bit at the very end after the credits in the video.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Opens Summer Movie Season

X-Men Origins: WolverineI don’t often get fussed about the summer movie season, but this year looks to be loaded with some movies, I actually want to see. Having suffered through a disappointing viewing of “Watchmen” earlier this year, the best thing I could say was three of the movies previewed before the film looked really good. Those films being “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, “Star Trek”, and “Terminator: Salvation” and today I got to see the first one of this batch of three.

“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” is the first “prequel” movie of the X-Men movie series to come out of the gate. I’m sure the powers that be at Fox want to explore origin stories for additional characters, and the first one to see release was this one that focuses on arguably the most popular X-Men character. Here Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine from the X-Men trilogy and it covers his past prior to the first X-Men film. There were a couple of points that seemed inconsistent with “X2: X-Men United” but I still quite enjoyed the movie.

Without giving too much away, there was some gorgeous shots that were supposed to in Canada. I hope that’s where they filmed those shots because they did look like Canadian Rockies, but one never knows anymore. I really enjoyed the movie and think it’s a well done addition to the X-Men line of films. So far of all the comic book genre films, as a whole I think the X-Men series has definitely been one of the best and this film adds to that series wonderfully.
