Lock-Out Trailer

I passed over this trailer a couple of times before finally just clicking on it. Boy am I glad I did, this movie (or at least Guy Pearce’s character) looks interesting.

1) It takes place in space. If you didn’t know I am a Science Fiction fan. Lets hope they get physics right.

2) The dialogue sounds interesting, even if a little juvenile. Apparently the guy’s wife takes coupons, who knew?

3) This is the most important, it has Satan in it. Lets see if he un-pimps zhe ride.

 

*For those who don’t get #3, here you go:

Skyrim Trailer…. This Time With Real People!

So here is the new Skyrim trailer. If it was a serious movie, I would say that the production value and general badassness is very high. Hollywood, I hope you are taking notes.

Sometimes…..

a movie comes a long and I think to myself, fuck yes!

This movie isn’t going to be for everybody. Hell, it will probably have a small audience. To me, this movie looks hilarious in a way that it flirts with my nerdom like a japanese school girl cheerleader playing Call of Duty while explaining why Batman is far superior to Superman at Comic Con. In such a special way that only seeing William Shatner and Chris Pine arm wrestling for the crown of best Kirk can explain.

BTW, that looks like this:

 

The name of this movie is Knights of Badassdom, and it tingles my nerdness like climbing the rope in gym class. The guys know what I’m talking about.

Sex and Violence

So I partake in many forms of media for my sensory exercises. Not necessarily that I’m addicted to being entertained, but I do enjoy a good book/movie/cd/video game. I like to feel the character’s emotions and enjoy their situation, good or bad, or feel the flowing vibe of a good song. Sometimes when I get pissed at a character’s actions or their predicament, I am still having fun. Just on a different level.

Granted there are times when I want to punch a wall because it is annoying and borderline unbearable, but I do enjoy being moved through the motions. One thing that does irk me to no end is when sex and violence is used just for the sake of using them. I like action movies and I’m a fan of nudity just like the next guy, but to just blatantly do it for the sake that you can, it really takes away from the experience for me. I might be crazy and alone on this one. If I wanted to watch senseless violence without any really plot device or purpose, I’d go to an MMA fight. It is what it is and you know that going into it. If I wanted to watch people have sex all day, I’d just watch porn. It is what it is and you know that going into it. I just don’t like when these two things are used to fill a gap or void in something because the story is a thinly veiled piece of shit.

By no means am I a prude or uptight, heh, just poke around my blog and you can figure that out. I am simply a strong believer in ‘There is a time and place for everything’ mantra. I do firmly believe that and sometimes it saddens me because I find things highly critically acclaimed or loved simply because some celebrity gets nude or somebody gets stabbed to death with a carrot. More and more it seems things are touched on for sensory exploitation and everything else is background noise. Just hit the hot buttons and everything falls in place. That annoys me.

 

How do you feel about it?

Aliens Game

A new game set in the Alien franchise is coming out. I have no idea if it will be good or not, the last Alien vs Predator sucked. Maybe this will be better. I will say that playing a colonial marine is one of the scariest things I have experienced in a video game. Hopefully this game does the franchise justice. There isn’t any game play footage in this game, just a teaser.
