'Transforminators' trailer mash-up

A really well done (it is by the Black20 guys) trailer mashup. Mixes Transformers, Terminator (Salvation and T2) and American Psycho (for a couple frames). I should have known the minutes the voices were so well done that Black20 was behind it.

I'm going to do a little feature on them when I am not so incredibly busy I have no time to waste on video games and movies.

'Matrix' Trinity Help scene with LEGO's!

Here's a little video of the bullet dodge scene from The Matrix. It took them 440 hours to make. I think I spent that much time playing Fallout 3. I believe we both accomplished a lot (I didn't accomplish anything).

Good going guys!

'Leap Year' Trailer

I was ready to massacre this one, but I think it looks kinds cute in that chick-flick way. In that, "She better choose the hotter "Irish" guy at the end after she finds out her boyfriend was cheating on her" way. If that doesn't happen it will be like the Sex and the City movie where there is no way in hell she should have ended up with the dude who left her at the altar. Plus, Matthew Goode is hot and even though he isn't Irish, I think I buy him as Irish.

The movie is about a woman who flies to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend following a tradition where women propose on leap year, or something. But her plans are put off course and she lands in Wales and meets Goode's character, an innkeeper, who agrees to drive her to Dublin to meet her boyfriend. A whole bunch of shit happens in typical chick-flick fashion, but who cares.

'Clash of the Titans' Teaser

I should only have to say two words to make this a convincing draw: Sam. And Worthington. I don't care what he wears, when or what he's doing. I will go see it. It's kind of like Alex SkarsgÄrd and me. He can do anything and I'll watch it. That goes for The Worthington.

In this movie it looks like some Titans clash. It looks pretty cool, but could be awful. I'll see it anyway...because of The Worthington.

'Salt' Trailer

Finally, a trailer for a movie that looks good. It has one of my favorites: Chiwetel Ejiofor...with an American accent. Also an Angelina Jolie playing a character I am intrigued by.

She plays Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer who is called in to question a walk-in, Vasiley something-or-other. He says that he has some information on an operative that is coming to kill the president. She asks him who he is and when they tell her he doesn't exist, she tells him he is good and gets up to leave telling him that he can explain it all to one of her co-workers. At which point he tells her that the name of the Russian spy is Evelyn Salt. She then takes off and supposedly tries to save her family from the government who are after her now for being said spy.

It looks awesome and I hope there's that moment where we find out she really is a spy and was supposed to kill the president but this dude fucked it all up.

'The Slammin' Salmon' Trailer

I'm sure like most of their movies, this is going to be funnier than the trailer makes it sound. At least I hope so, because this looks awful based on the trailer alone.
The basic idea is that Michael Clarke Duncan plays an old boxer that opens a restaurant full of idiots for employees. He then offers them a bunch of money for doing something.

'Kick-Ass' Trailer

I don't know about this one...They aren't superheroes because they don't have powers, but they are pretending to be superheroes and they have powers? I don't know, seems like unless they fail miserably at every take-down, I might think this is stupid. That and it looks stupid.

3 Reasons You Should Start Watching 'Supernatural' Last Week

I love Supernatural, that isn't new. I've been watching since midway through the first season. It's a lovely blend of scary and funny. It has a mythology that runs throughout some stand-alone episodes. It is acted brilliantly and it has two lovely lead actors. What's not to like?

If you are unfamiliar with the show, I recommend you go buy the previous seasons and then start watching them. I may go back and highlight some of the best episodes later, but for now...now feast your eyes on some scenes from last week's brilliantly hilarious episode, "Changing Channels". The boys get sucked into "TV Land" and hi-jinks ensue and unlike most times I say "hi-jinks ensue", I really mean it this time.

"Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" Trailer

Didn't think I'd actually say, "It looks good", but it doesn't look that bad. I still don't get Jake Gyllenhaal being the Prince of Persia, but at least they appear to have placed the movie back in the day. I would have suggested either Sendhil Ramamurthy or Naveen Andrews.

And at least they look like the game, however, they should have, I don't know...Arabian accents. Why do they always have British accents? If they had been conquered by Brits, then yeah...but they weren't.
