Mania Box Office Report: NON-STOP to the TOP (Article) - 3/4/2014 7:49:54 PM

Just saw Non-Stop tonight.  Friggin a whole lotta fun.  You know it's fun when the entire theater claps and cheers when the bad guy bites it and the good guy saves the day.  And then more claps at the start of the closing credits.  Two big ballsy thumbs up!

Schwarzenegger Talks Terminator: Genesis (Article) - 3/4/2014 12:52:45 PM

I agree, Jokers.  I don't understand why these Hollywood chumps won't just give us what we've wanted since 1984.  THE WAR!  Dude, it would be killer!  Totes magotes!  I mean, is it a money thing?  Do they think it'd cost too much?  There's no way that could be the case considering how much gets spent on these sci-fi movies these days.  What pumped me up about T3 more that anything (the movie was cool and fun, but it was no T2) was that I thought for sure it was just a lead-in to the war.  I was so sure that T4 was gonna be the war movie that we always wanted.  Salvation kinda did that to some extent, but it still wasn't what the people were really expecting, I don't think.  I didn't think Salvation was bad, but I think what really killed it for a lot people is that McG et al tried to do too much.  They tried to force feed us something "new and fresh" when all they really had to do was take the bits of story that were told in the first two movies and run with it.  Or at the very least tie it in more with T3.  Instead they had to introduce the whole Marcus storyline and all and I think it was a mistake.  It felt like too much of a standalone franchise (or just a single standalone movie now I guess).  Keep it simple, stupid.

Her eyes seem kinda wide apart though too.

She looks kinda catty.

I mean, I'm excited about the movie (always ready for another Terminator), but he didn't really say much.  Nothing too exciting here.

Mania Review: Stalingrad (Article) - 3/3/2014 11:35:09 AM

It was good, but not nearly as much action as I was expecting.  There were several parts that I found rather cheesy, especially when dudes would just start screaming in slow motion as they fired off a full clip from their automatics and machine guns.  It was literally every single gun fight scene.  And for a movie that's called "Stalingrad" I expected longer and more intense action sequences and battle scenes.  It was mostly just a story of the guys holed up in the building and coming together and taking in the girl as kind of a little sister, or a daughter in a couple of their cases.  And of course the German officer falling in love with the Russian girl and how she was shunned because she was boinking a Nazi.  The IMAX was incredible, especially the opening scene with the exploding fuel tanks and dudes running through the flames and catching on fire and charging the German machine gun emplacements.  But I agree that the 3D was unnecessary with the exception of a few parts; the part with the plane being shot down and crashing on the roof was pretty impressive.  But yeah, it seemed superfluous for the most part.

Overall I think I'd agree with the B grade.  I'd maybe give it more of a B- just because of the several cheeseball parts and the fact that I think a movie that's supposed to be about the bloodiest battle in human history should have more action and better battle scenes.

Ok, awesome.  I'm headed out to see it now.

So wait, is it not subtitled?  He says it's all in Russian and German, which I expected of course, but he makes it sound like I'm not gonna be able to understand one iota of the dialogue.

I might go see it tonight.  Got a drug test for a new job in the morning and it'll keep me away from the bars and outta trouble.  Lol! 

But seriously, I saw the poster at the theater a couple weeks ago and immediately wanted to see it.  I'm a big military/war history buff, especially WWII, so this is a must-see for me.  My TV is tuned to Military Channel or Military History half the time that I have it on.

The Birds Remake Coming from Michael Bay (Article) - 3/2/2014 10:09:57 AM

They also had Indiana Jones, Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire's), Superman IV costume, Dark Knight, The Matrix, and one of my faves was Uma Thurman's yellow jumpsuit from Kill Bill.  It was one of my favorites because of the shoes.  On bottom of the soles was stamped "FUCK U," so it would make a print in the dirt or whatever.  Something I don't think you see in the movie.  I thought it was hilarious.  I started cracking up when I saw it and had to point it out to my mom.
