The year was 1991 and one of the greatest console wars begun, Snes vs Sega. Each company had remember able mascots that would give you a reason to play some of their exclusive title releases, Nintendo had their classic mascot Mario aka Super Mario, (To any who didn't know this, SHAME, SHAME) and then their was Sega who had their little blue speed demon known as Sonic the hedgehog. Through many online surveys given, a majority of people preferred the Snes over the Sega, I mean its not hard to see why the Snes had some pretty insane series of games, the list goes from the Super Mario series to the Zelda series, but don't get me wrong the Sega had some rad exclusive titles, from Sonic the hedgehog to Mortal Kombat. So I'll let you decide on which one was better, just post your answers and opinions in the comments section.

The storyline behind this classic movie is simple, 5 students from different social groups are stuck spending their Saturday morning serving detention in their school library. There's the nerd, the jock, the princess, the bad boy, and the basket case, on a regular school day none of these students would be caught dead speaking to one another but through out the movie they realize that they have more in common then they think and that their lives aren't so easy as it may seem. Alot of mischief goes down as the day goes on. Pure 80s classic at his best, Rent it, Buy it, Tivo it, Do whatever but I recommend you watch it

So today being Thursday i decided this will become my new day for one retro review, the movie i have chosen for this week is................THE WIZARD
To those who have not seen this movie, I recommend renting it or watching it when its on television. The movie stars Fred Savage, Jenny Lewis and Luke Edward as the main characters, The movie basically follows three kids as they travel to California so the youngest, who has a condition that makes him emotionally withdrawn, can compete in the Nintendo World Video Game Championships. Not only is this a movie about over coming great odds and obstacles, it also has a pretty rad 80's soundtrack as well as scenes of retro gaming from some of the greatest games of 1989, games such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja Gaiden, Super Mario Bros 3 and many more. So don't be a square and go check it out.
