More teaser trailer, more creepy music, more chaos, more destruction, more footage, more wantage! Two minute long teaser trailer two is here and I actually can't wait to see the eyegasm of Transformers.










Some people are a little butthurt about Friday the 13th Remake having Jason Voorhees running. Well so did the originals and after seeing the remake last night, no one should be complaining about him running or lack there of.

I think most people got upset when someone said, "Jason dead sprints." He dead sprints about as much as a big, clumsy, ogre can. His runnings are almost identical to the ones scene in this video. If anything, it seems like there is more running in Part 2 than the remake.

As for the remake itself, I guess it was okay but there was some issues. It didn't seem to flow well together. But I am anxious for the DVD release with the alternate cut which contains more gore, more sex, and supposedly additional storyline that makes it seem like a new movie. Hmm, what could they add? At least this movie wasn't overrun with CGI.

If you want to know more about the remake...SPOILERz!

The worst part about the movie is that it felt scrunched together. They tried to put too much in a 100 minute movie and there isn't enough time. It was 100% a remake...of the first three movies. I like to retitle this "movie" "Friday the 13th: Cliff Notes of Part 1-3". It contains the important parts of each film. In the first movie, all you needed was the last five minutes-check. The second one, the last thirty minutes were decent-check. And the rest is the third movie. So I am not sure if I would call it a movie but just cliff notes of the first three movies in visual format. would you call Spark Notes of Romeo and Juliet the book Romeo and Juliet?.

It didn't seem to create a character and was more so geared towards people who have seen the series. He was humanized and feelings of knowing him were there. There was no mystery of who he was like the originals had created. If it was for them, do you really need to "restart" it? As Cowzilla told me, they should've just done number 12 (13 if you could Freddy vs. Jason in the mix) and have a pre-setup like they had in this film but then done something new. And I agree.

But the true question to my problem with the been there, done that feeling with this Cliff Note is...can you really fault a remake for not being original? It feels like it is pretty much what you've already seen before but with fresher film? It isn't great, it isn't horrible. You just expect a bit more, but hey...there are some great pairS of bewbs in there and some fun parts as well as jump parts that will be sure to get a girl to jump in your arms. And isn't that the point of any scary movie?

2 1/2 Turoks out of 5 Turoks










For some this may seem like a stretch but this weekend I saw one of the most epic trailers ever. It was attached to Push but you can see it online now and it is definitely worth your time.

This should be seen in the best quality so click to see: 9.

Yeah yeah "oldz, lulz" but for those who don't know, it is a Tim Burton film. I've never been a huge fan of his films but this one I can't wait for. Perhaps it is some of the visual scenes or the ton/atmosphere that gives me a Half Life feeling. Or simply put, it could be that it seems just so amazingly epic and that is what HL was. Of course you have to tolerate the music but it gets the job done.

Probably the best way to sum it up is if Half Life and LittleBigPlanet had a baby. Then those babies grew up a bit and got pissed off cause someone wrecked their world. It is a win win situation!

Also, those look like Striders, huh?










It is finally out if you didn't know and it is every bit as good as I remembered it. A little pew pew here, and some more pew pew there and bugs get BLOWN UP! All this in a nice little package.

Another nice feature, you don't get any of the trophies until the level is finished so you can stay focused on the mission at hand. YES! Don't take me out of video game mode unless you have to!

Good music, good graphics, good fun. This game has all I could want in it for a nice small package of $10. The only thing missing is a naked Dizzy Florez and/or Song 2 playing in the background.








Dropping on the world like no one's business, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra will be an abomination. Hopefully a fun, stupid abomination but an abomination nonetheless. Here's something to get your hopes up or down depending how you look at it. They are File cars for the movie. I think it is safe to assume these will be included in any action figure made for this movie. Here they are...



The Joes






















Cobra


















Is it just me or does the Cobra Vipers remind you of Army of Two? Also, if you don't know, James McCullen = Destro. And do you think it is safe to say that The Doctor is really Doctor Mindbender who has not been revealed or announced?

Anyways, the movie looks like it could be a little fun. I will for sure see it but will have my palm ready to embrace my face. I am interested in how they go abouts making action figures based on the film. Will they be like the current Joe's out there or will they be larger in the same vein as other movie action figures. Now THAT is a pressing question!!!

PS: There are some new posters up that are pretty sweet. Look at them all here.










Talk about the worst news EVAR! Yesterday I get one of the best (if not THE best) downloadable game and now this. There was UNANNOUNCED Turok 2 planned to come out and now the stupid recession stops it from happening. How dare they! Are they using their head at all?

Turok makers, Propaganda, is owned by Disney and that is the first place they go to make cuts. They were working on two projects and canned Turok 2, talk about stupid moves. Should we revel in the fact that the other game is still being worked on? No, cause it is probably a load of butt suck.




I don't think I can support Disney anymore. No more Lizzy Maguire dvd purchases, no more Even Stevens marathons, and definitely no more Hannah Montana in any way shape or form. I won't even look at her "sexy" pre-pr0n photos she posts on MySpace anymore. That is how much I am upset. I don't believe the CEO of that company knows how to run a company. They are missing out on a gold mine here.
