MacGruber

January 27, 2010

Ok He’s a parody of MacGuyver (Richard Dean Anderson is the man). Living in Australia I kinda missed most of the SNL skits so I don’t have any history with this particular parody but it looks reasonably funny. Powers Boothe and Val Kilmer. That’s some decent star power. Advertisements

Hot Tub Time Machine – Yeah… ok……

January 27, 2010

So the premise is a bit contrived but it’s got John Freakin Cusak in it. And it’s got that whole ‘Old School’ old guys getting a second chance at youth vibe to it. I’m nearing that big 40 in the not too distant future so this trailer really speaks to me and it looks like […]

Lego Universe MMORPG

January 21, 2010

This looks so cool. I love the concept and apparently anything you see in game, you can buy as a lego pack that they send you. Forget my mid life crisis! I feel my second childhood coming on!

Tekken Movie Trailer Kicks Major Ass

January 16, 2010

Movie adaptations of fighting game properties have traditionally always had a very poor record of being any good. Several bad ones come to mind straight away: Streetfighter, The Legend of Chun Li, Dead or Alive, Dragonball (ok its a RPG too but hey it was bad). In fact the only semi good one that I […]

Actions Stars of the World Unite?

January 13, 2010

Ok. The Expendables looks like a big mish mash of mindless action, cheesy one liners and a conglomeration of every 80s and 90s action star in the one corny and ill conceived movie. Actually it looks so bad…. It might turn out to be awesome!! The plot is simple: A team of mercenaries head to […]

Chow Yan Fat is Confucius

January 9, 2010

Wow. These trailers have that whole whole Ten Commandments, Charlton Heston, Moses vibe going for them. The makings of a truly great epic. Hardly surprising considering the man in the centre of the story. Looks Great! For the uninitiated (from Wikipedia): Confucius was a Chinese thinker and social philosopher (551 BCE – 479 BCE), whose […]

Mass Effect 2

January 3, 2010

This trailer is really making me think seriously about buying a XBox 360 or at least a decent gaming rig. Either way, Mass Effect 2, the latest Bioware offering looks awesome. I am not usually into third person shooter RPGs, but these honestly this looks awesome. Oh and this is a video with the cast. […]
