‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ Campaign Trailer: Power and Mech Suits 4 All


I consider it something of a personal flaw that I love the Call of Duty franchise. Love it while acknowledging that its brotastic jingoism certainly strives for the Lowest Common Denominator. And there it finds me. Covered in Diet Mountain Dew cans, Doritos flakes, and a raging hard-on to take down injustice everywhere. For America.

Netflix has officially renewed ‘HOUSE OF CARDS’ for third season. Maniacal cackle!

House of Cards.

It seems like mere months ago I was laughing at the idea that House of Cards wouldn’t go past a second season. There were rumors that it was done after a second jaunt, and I was all pfft! LOL. Now grant you, it was a nervous laugh. But my posturing has been rewarded! With something like ten days to go until the premiere of the second season, House of Cards has officially been picked up for a third. Hellfuckingyeah.

House of Cards.

After House of Cards was renewed for a second season, the next big question became whether or not David Fincher would direct any episodes. Homeboy directed the pilot, et cetera. We now know the answer: negative. Bummer. Fincher’s aesthetic was a huge sexy portion of the episodes he directed, and immediately disappeared when he was no longer behind the camera. The show’s quality didn’t suffer, but I’m a whore for slick overlays and visual hooks. Alas. So no Fincher.

But! We’ve found ourselves a Spacey and a Wright.

The Dude’s High 5s: Top 5 Movie Character’s Death Scenes

Last week I took a pounding for hating on some classic movies.   Except the Hangover … seems most of the super intelligent OL crowd didn’t fall for that movie.   This week I want to move on to happier topics, like death.   What makes a good death scene?   Dying for ones beliefs and convictions?   Sure, that’ll do.   Giving some epic prose before sloughing off this mortal coil?   Sure, that’s a good one too.   I think that a great death scene has meaning.   This means that we have to care about the characters, no easy feat.   So here they are, my top 5 Death Scenes.

Just be warned, there are spoilers ahead for the following movies: Star Wars, LA Confidential, Saving Private Ryan, Blade Runner, and Highlander: End Game.

Face of a Franchise: Hero 1999!

[face of a franchise presents individuals that’ve fulfilled the same role. your task — choose the champion and defend your choice in the rancor pit that is the comments section]

It took seventeen years for Prince’s prophecy to be refuted, but when 1999 hit there was plenty to party about. For one thing, the Internet was finally delivering porno at a rate that could compete with that of our constantly evolving fetishes. And mercifully, Disney’s Doug was slaughtered after besmirching the brand that had flourished for years on Nickelodeon.

But most worthy of celebration was 1999’s slew of cinematic masterpieces.

Netflix Gets Deal To Distribute Fincher/Spacey TV Series.

…I’m not even sure if it is a television show though, is it? How do you classify this shit? Netflix has spent a cool $100 million to create and distribute David Fincher and Kevin Spacey’s House of Cards. David Fincher will be the executive producer, while Spacey is set to be the lead. The two’s project is based “on a British series and novel of the same name, the show will be a political thriller about a conservative politician with his eye on a high ranking office.” And while the original was set was in England, the Fincher/Spacey collaboration will be taking place in the good ole United States of America.

Hit the jump for more details.
