Something odd about seeing an obviously weary Bruce Willis with moobs running around in ridiculous action sequences. It’s like the older the dude has gotten, the more preposterous the circumstances have become. Obviously an indication of the arc of Hollywood since the franchise premiere, but I definitely prefer the quieter, less WOWIE moments in the Die Hard flicks. What do you folks think? Peep the trailer, drop your impressions.
Looper hasn’t even come out yet (unfortunately), and it has already received a retrofitting. Ain’t nothing that says love from the geek community like taking an appreciated commodity and dipping it into an 8 bit well.
How good is this new trailer for Looper? It uses dubstep, and I don’t hate it. I’m serious.
One of the reasons that Rian Johnson’s Looper finally getting off the ground was that it got some additional Chinese financing. Now a perk of that financing its manifesting itself for Chinese audiences, and I’m like, mad jelly.
Here’s the trailer for G.I. Joe Retaliation. Nothing gets me totally amped up for global spending on war and defense like a pack of gorgeous hard bodies making bloodshed and warfare seem so fucking sexy.

John McClane is a goddamn bad-ass. From the late 1980s to the mid-1990s, McClane made a point to periodically run through a Die Hard flick in the hopes of averting disaster and making clever quips. Towers? Airports? An entire city? No matter the intended terror-target, McClane never shirked from responsibility, even if it meant working through a bombastic hangover.
However, part of what makes the Die Hard trilogy so fun is the fact that John McClane never has an easy go of his adventures. By the end of each movie, Bruce Willis looks more like a broken-spirited vagrant than any sort of wealthy restauranteur. The truth of the matter is that McClane is always outmatched by his enemies, and as such he has to get the piss beaten out of him before he can save the day.
So who of McClane’s foes are the most formidable? Which motherfuckers stick in the craw most? Well, the honor has to go to the Gruber Brothers.
Here we go! Here we go, here we go, here we go! Official trailer for Looper, and god dammit it actually looks better than my already anticipant ass was expecting.
Boinggggggggggggggg. The official poster for Looper has been revealed. I don’t think it’s a particularly fantastic poster, as it seems to riff super-hard on the Source Code vibe. Just ruthlessly grinding all over it. Who gives a fuck though, the poster is yet another herald for the film’s forthcoming release.
