Some Cool Avatar Videos

IGN Video: Avatar Movie Clip - Thanator Chase

Check this one out for sure. The effects and mocap animation blow me away. Its crazy how far they have come even since Beowulf.

Terminator is slowly making it's way into my top ten films of all time list. The atmosphere, tone, effects (at the time were fucking crazy), and story are all top notch. The only thing that is silly is the sex scene, which was referenced in Planet Terror sex scene with hilarious music and editing. Check out the action sequences and look up how much Cameron actually had to work with, it wasn't much.

On another note, I have a thought that has to do with the latest film; Salvation... The best part of the Terminator films is the flash forwards to the future war with the machines. It was dark as hell, barren, and brutal. All of these things were omitted from the atmosphere in McG's lame installment into the series. The potential for a great film was there, but there was also a lack of concern for this potential in Salvation. Just a sad thought.

I would rather have this film :D Back to the Future fusion with Terminator

Next is my favorite film of all time. Aliens.

Alright, Avatar comes out December 18th. There is about 6 weeks until then and each week I will be watching a Cameron film. Sorry to say I will be skipping Xenogensis and Piranha 2... I just don't have the time for those ones. Please if you want to have some fun do this countdown with me.

Week 1 - Terminator (this week)
Week 2 - Aliens
Week 3 - The Abyss
Week 4 - Terminator 2
Week 5 - True Lies
Week 6 - Titanic

And I leave you with some Scream 2 :D

Mickey: It's Bullshit generalization. Many sequels have surpassed their originals.
Randy: Oh yeah?
Cici: Name one.
Film Class Guy #1: Aliens. Far better than the first.
Cici: Yeah, well, theres no accounting for taste.
Randy: Thank you. Ridley Scott Rules. Name Another.
Film Class Guy #2: No way. Aliens is a classic. "Get away from her, you Bitch!"
Randy: I believe the line is "Stay away from her, you Bitch." This is a film class right?
Film Class Guy #2: Got you. Whatever. You know what I mean.
Randy: Name another.
Mickey: T-2.
Cici: You got a Hard-on for Cameron.
Randy: A big one.

Rocky IV

So, my friends came over and saw my Rocky bluray boxset, then opted to "see what Rocky IV looked like." Of course this turned into watching the whole film. I have never been the biggest fan of IV, but the more I see it the more I warm up to it. Although, I will never come to terms with that goddamn robot...
The overall structure of the film is pretty amazing. Its like a huge montage with little 2 minute spots of drama to "push the story". The fights in this one are pretty damn good. In Drago VS Apollo the hits hurt. Every time Drago smashes Apollo's head you feel it in your bones. There is one point when Apollo's head is slammed into minced meat and sweat explodes off of his fro in slow motion. An excellent reason to see it on bluray.

Rather than focusing on the Rocky Vs Drago fight I am more impressed by the preparation for it. Here's some things you can do to get ready to fight a roided out Russia hard ass:

Travel to Siberia
Lift stones
Lift stones with a rope
Lift a cart filled with people, dead man style
Pull a cart like a horse
Lift a downed carriage
One armed push-ups
Shadow boxing under a rope
Out run Russian spys and make them crash in the snow

In case you forgot...

Another Machete Poster Out

For the Alba fan boys.....


Just watched Rocky on bluray! Forgot how damn good of a movie it is. I will be moving through the Rocky Collection this month and posting some thoughts on the series as I do. I picked up the bluray collection and so far the transfers are looking excellent. In Rocky the HD shines when Rocky is jogging in the early morning and it literally shines off Carl Weathers' chest in the last fight.

Everyone has seen this movie so there is not much I can say. I don't remember it being so raw (it has been 8 years since I've seen it though) and I don't remember Paulie being so awkward about his sister's virginity. Other than that it was the same old ass kicking movie I saw when I was a kid. We shall see how the next five films do in comparison.

Favorite Lines:

Mickey: You're gonna eat lightnin' and you're gonna crap thunder!

Rocky: Don't smoke that. It makes your breath like garbage.

Rocky: I think we make a real sharp couple of coconuts - I'm dumb, you're shy, whaddaya think, huh?
