PACIFIC RIM [update] WonderCon Trailer 

ELYSIUM [trailer] 

:: When I read about this a year ago I thought, “huh, weird story…kinda cliche…but a bit of a twist, should be fun”. Now after seeing this trailer, I just don’t know :/ 
Jodie Foster, awesome. Matt Damon, awesome. Futuristic-dystopian-space colony…awesome! Ridiculous looking - bone grafted - exoskeleton that will “save everyone”…not buying it.

2013: Day 30

Today’s been a great day…

Beat my alarm clock, so I was up before 6AM, which gave me time to figure some kind of workout routine. The holidays slowed me down, but I need something to keep my legs going during the off-months of cycling (I just can’t bike in this much snow…I’m not as manly as Isaac or Josiah). I even had time to grab coffee and get to work 20mins early!
Had to sit through a meeting…which was balls…but in the end being able to finalize plans for an event is worth it.

Got to take a van full of students out for tacos! We spent the whole time talking about my trip to Puerto Rico this summer (a few of the dudes had done it back in 2011) and I could not be more stoked! It being a mission trip, there are a number of things I’m nervous/weary about…but being encouraged by a group of awesome dudes is so empowering!

THEN there was the epic news that my art is going to be sold in a local gallery! That in and of itself is great, but the cherry on top is that they will be providing shipping services!!! This is something I’ve been wanting to setup for a few years now, and really gives me the motivation to start creating!

Aaand then my bud Tom and I checked out the new Schwarzenegger flick “Last Stand” …my review…totally predictable, brutal, funny, and a must see if you’re in need of a good “dudes night”.

FIRST RELEASE: jOBS 

∆ I’m not sure how I feel about Kutcher as Steve…
I mean, he looks the part, but his voice is still that iconic dopey/goofy tone that I’m familiar with. I’m sure it’ll just take some time to get used to. Overall, it’s that last line that does it for me :)

PS: Happy Birthday Macintosh!

THE GREAT GATSBY [trailer] 

How come I’m only seeing this now??? Leo + Lurhmann = GOLD!!! 

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…

The Justice League character lineup was revealed yesterday! 
Supe’s and Bats make sense, Wonder Woman just sounds like Thor, Flash sounds like Human Torch, the only way that Aquaman will be relevant is if there’s like…a global attack and the ocean’s are threatened…and I’m actually glad Ryan Reynolds is back as Green Lantern. BUT I’m most excited for Martian Manhunter!  

PACIFIC RIM [trailer] First Official

∆ It’s like Evangelion meet Godzilla, from the guy who made Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy…can’t wait!  

EDIT: Oh yeah, and that really is GLaDOS in the movie!

LOOPER [movie] Review 
- It took me nearly 3 weeks to see this movie because our theater, even after advertising it, didn’t get it in! - 
This movie…this….movie……Kay, have you heard the new Linkin Park album? The intro to the third song “Burn It Down” kinda has that digital-dream feeling going on right? Yeah, that’s how this whole movie made me feel. Like I was watching something that was changing not just popculture, but my outlook on it. In a sea of pre/sequels, remakes, reboots, and just flippin awful Hollywood trash, Looper shows us something new. Sure time travel isn’t different, and steampunk has almost been overdone, not to mention this year has already been saturated with neo-future-sci-fi-dystopia flicks. But the team of Rian and JGL (for those that haven’t seen “Brick”) is able to take something we think we know, and turn it on it’s head. LIKES: The fact that I walked into a movie thinking I’d see time traveling bounty hunters, and got something completely different. It’s this years movie where, when people ask, you have to respond with “if I tell you anything, it’ll ruin it for you”. And the Blunderbuss, I mean c’mon! AND what Bruce Willis’ character brought to the story; anytime there was a chance for someone to question the reality of time-travel (thus sending nerds on a never ending spiral of “what if” scenarios) he would end it by abruptly stating that trying to figure it all out would just fry your brain…yes. DISLIKE: The fact that after the credits, far too many people were responding with “they broke the rules of time travel” …WHAT?! Who’s making these rules man? It’s a movie, about time travel, that should automatically give you the indication that something out of the ordinary and possibly unexplainable is about to go down!
This is definitely in my Top5 of 2012, possibly even in the #1 spot…we’ll see :S

DREDD 3D [movie] Review

For those of you that (still) don’t know anything about Judge Dredd, here’s a refresher…
It was a grim comicbook created in the 70’s, and if you Google it, you’ll find a lot of over the top and over exaggerated art detailing him as a rock-jawed dis-proportioned monster. In the 90’s Hollywood’s answer IRL was Sly Stallone, who did a bang up job of being “the law”. Jump ahead to the early 20teen’s where every movie wants to be the next “Dark Knight”, so they dirtied up an already filthy franchise.
The result; I suggest you look at this as being a prequel to the original Judge Dredd movie. This features a smaller (in build) and younger (looking) version of the hero, who you can tell is famous with his fellow Judges, but not yet famousenoughto be feared city-wide. This moviecouldbe the mission that makes him so well-known…who knows. The outfits aren’t as “futuristic”, but the tech is pretty close. It’s not the neon-drenched, stylistic dystopia, and that’s a good thing. Also note that in the 90’s version Dredd is near the end of his time, and is given the assignment of training new recruits in the school…not on the street.

That all being said, I was not expecting to love this as much as I did! The poptech soundtrack adds something to this brutally violent movie that most in the action genre are missing; the ability to take you out of your seat and give you more than just explosions. I got into it, really into it, and not just because Olivia Thirlby is a total babe! You can feel each gunshot, wince every time someone’s face explodes (and it happens a LOT), and I found my head bobbing to the beat of every “slow-mo” scene.
This will definitely be in my Top10 best movies of 2012!
