First Look: Captain America

Armand Friday, October 29, 2010

Damn! Photos galore! Entertainment Weekly has just release official photos of the upcoming Captain America movie! And man lemme tell ya the photos don't disappoint!

I'm glad to see that they kept the Ultimate Avengers WWII Captain America outfit in the movie as well as his shield. The look kinda goes well with Chris Evans actually. So my guess is that they'll start off with Rogers getting enrolled into the Super Soldier program to combat the threat of the Nazis lead by Johann Schmidt. He goes to war, manages to do battle with Johann and somehow Johann got the worst in the battle and he presumably dies and the war ends. Or so they thought.

Everything's all fine and dandy until a new threat arises. Johann now becomes the Red Skull due to Johann sustaining serious injuries to his face during the epic battle between Ol Winghead and himself. Captain America is once again called upon to do battle with his old enemy. During one of their encounter Red Skull reveals that he is in fact Johann and somehow blames Cap for what happened to him.

Armed with a new shield and costume, they do battle once again, Cap kicks his ass, he loses, the end. But not before giving one last final 1 finger salute to Uncle Sam by releasing a missile aimed straight for the White House (maybe). Cap hops on the missile, tries to disarm it mid air, somehow manages to blow the shit up and plummet straight down to earth. Where does he swan dive down to earth you ask? Over the Arctic Ocean that's where. He falls, sinks down and gets frozen in an ice capsule. Credits start rolling and the movie ends.

Or does it? Typical Marvel movie style there will be an Easter Egg at the end. We see Nick Fury in a sub, when suddenly the radar starts bleeping like mad and the end line goes "Sir, we found him". Then you get a close up of Rogers frozen in ice.

But hey that's just my speculations on how the movie will go. I could be wrong, hehehe! But until the movie hits theaters summer 2011, we fanboys will have to wait and find out. Enjoy the pics. Excelsior!

First Look: Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon

Armand Friday, October 8, 2010

Yes that is the title of the 3rd installment of Michelangelo Bayonet's Transfuckers. I sincerely hope that what I read is a typo and I really hope that it's just a working title but I'll be a monkey's neighbor's babysitter if they actually stuck to that title. So far from what I've heard they've mellowed down on the story and are emphasizing more on big robots duking it out battle royale style. Which is exactly what I want! I can live with a so-so storyline with corny one liners but really who gives a crap? I'm paying to see big mother trucking robots beating the shit out of other big mother flanking robots.

So far I've only seen set pictures and footage but I've yet to come across concept arts for the new designs for the robots. Maybe Bay's keeping this one under tight wraps this time around. As you can see from the pictures below there's a red Ferrari 458 Italia which my guess is that should be Sunstreaker (logically that should have been Sideswipe since the color scheme matches but whatever). So Sideswipe's got a speed buddy now.

There's also a few nasty twisted metal looking NASCARs and I'm guessing they're Decepticons. So much for hiding in plain sight. They must be so bad ass that they don't really give a hoot if everybody knows they're evil robots from outer space.

On a lighter note, I'm quite happy that Bay actually included Prime's trailer this time around. And not just any trailer, G1 accurate to be exact! Sigh, just wish we could see Prime as a red flatnose cab together with the trailer. Oh well at least we fanboys are getting our share innit?

So watch out for the release in June 2011. I'm a bit excited about the movie. What about you?

G1 Optimus Prime. Well close anyway.

No more sliding into corners there Prime what with all that extra weight you're carrying.

Looks like the Decepticons fornicated with H.R Giger's Alien. Ewwwww!

Being topless. It ain't just sexy with women...

Ninja driver!

Sideswipe and Sunstreak.

Man this is one ugly looking car.

Patrick Dempsey. Does anybody really care if he's in the movie or not?

Another one of them uggo NASCAR

Bubblebee's sporting a spoiler now.

Plow the road Prime!

Ferrari 458 Italia. One sexy italian...

Ratchet's new color scheme

What else can I say to insult these cars?

Mmmmm. Daddy wants one...

Movie Trailer: The Warrior's Way

Armand Monday, October 4, 2010

What's cooler than swords? Ninjas wielding swords that's what! I am such a sucker for movies with swords and ninjas and this one looks kick ass. I watched the teaser trailer a few months back and was sold just watching the teaser and this is the first full length trailer for the movie.

The movie was originally titled Laundry Warrior, is written and directed by first-time Korean filmmaker Sngmoo Lee, who is making his directing debut, with Weta Digital working on some of the visual effects.

The Warrior's Way stars Korean actor Dong-Kun Jang, American actors Kate Bosworth, Danny Huston, and Geoffrey Rush. Dong-Kun Jang plays Yang, a skilled and legendary swordsman who's been trained by his master to be the greatest and strongest warrior in the lands. He went rogue when his master sent him to kill a new born baby, the last of a rival clan. He couldn't kill the baby but instead Yang flees Japan(I think) together with the baby and starts a new life in the wild wild west. As all movies with the same mold, no surprise what happens next. The master and his entire clan hunts him down and all hell breaks loose. The Warrior's Way share a very similar storyline as Ninja Assassin so if you've watched that you can kinda get the gist of the movie.

It mixes westerns, martial arts, and fantasy in a hyper-stylistic way, and looks pretty badass. Think 300, The Matrix, and Ninja Assassin all rolled into one movie. Can't wait to catch this. It hits theaters on 3rd December 2010.
