RR Kevin Hart - Seriously Funny


Short, but hilarious. Kinda like Kevin Hart himself.

#TMNT NEWS! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Official Trailer(s?)

Okay, so I finally decided to take a look at the new TMNT movie's trailer.

And...

Boy do I regret it. No kidding.

Let's leave any nostalgia, etc. aside, okay? Can we do that? No fanboy-ism - EITHER WAY. Let's have a clean unbiased look at BOTH these following trailers. Era they were released in aside.

First this:



Okay?

And now this:



Okay. One second to ponder.

Alright, any biased judgement aside. I clearly see above a pretty generic looking film (does the word cinematography even mean anything to anyone working in films these days?). CGi-aside, the Turles look unnecessary huge and clustered with random objects (I guess, to make "HD" look detailed). Raph is... okay-ysh. Mickey's probably the worst case of uncanny valley I've ever seen, that face... And Donnie's exaggerated nerd look (look, glasses, nerd! get it? get it????). But those huge shells look really big for no reason. I can't believe they will enter manhole covers to enter the NYC sewers.. Shredder is basically a Transformer (yeah, I know, Michael Bay's not directing it...but he was basically overseeing it and some people made sure this looked like a film put out from the same assembly line). And I still can't stand this Megan whatever... Ugh... Sure, it looks like a film where a lot of money was thrown on screen, but surely that doesn't make "quality" entertainment. "Son of the Mask" is one of the most expensive ever produced, doesn't mean it's any good.

The second trailer, the original film, while clearly a product of its time seems to be having fun with it. People are having a blast. And it shows! It's fun! And the actual film turned out much darker than this silly little trailer! (DAAAAAAMN!!!) Plus look at how well portrayed the Turtles were despite costumes! These 4-costumed Turtles have better acting than 2014's "April O'Neil"!!

Alright, now final point.

#BestOf The Venture Bros - Dr. Orpheus

I miss the Venture Bros ....

Dr. Orpheus was specially awesome in it:



Now this is how Marvel should go about making a Dr. Strange live-action movie!

#DeletedScene - Alien vs Predator: Nightmare on Ryushi - AVP game no one ever played

This one's actually a pretty recent find, courtesy from avpgalaxy.net.

Not only has there been FPS and beat 'em all Alien vs. Predator games, apparently at some point there was going to be an adventure game as well!


Titled Alien vs Predator: Nightmare on Ryushi!

The game was supposedly in development for MS-Dos but was mysteriously canceled at some point. It was going to be a first for the series, a point & click adventure game by Activision!



The game would have also been a first for the Alien and Predator franchises, being the first game to had then offered 3 separate playable campaigns/stories!

This might have been surprisingly refreshing and different for the series. Too bad it was canceled...

MR The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms


Long before the Kaiju/monster film craze of the 1960s, there was the one, the only, the original... Godzilla's very own granddaddy, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms!!

#TV NEWS! 12 Monkeys trailer

Here's the trailer for SyFy's upcoming show based on Terry Gilliam's cult 1995 film Twelve Monkeys:



Glad to see some Fringe favorite actors of mine back on the small screen, but to be honest I'm not 100% motivated by how this looks.

It's like they took ever little signature Terry Gilliam bit and aesthetic out of the film and produced a more generic drama/thriller.
