Let’s face it, vampires have been done to death these days. Everything from turning them into sparkly sissies, giving them an HBO series, and having them go toe-to-toe with a former president has been churned out of tinsel-town lately. Frankly, I’m sick of it. They’re everywhere these days and they totally suck…and not in the awesome way. I was beginning to lose hope that there would never be a truly great vampire movie again. DAYBREAKERS changed all that. Read the rest of this entry »
Welp…I’m gonna go kill myself.
It certainly makes my nerd balls swell to know that this film finally got it’s shit together. Let’s just hope we get to see it before that 2012 prediction comes to fruition. Damn Mayans. They should just buy a new damn calendar, if you ask me. Those things are quite cheap and have cute pictures of cats doing adorable things on them.
By now the entire world has been made aware of this trailer’s existence. But I am mostly to blame for the lack of promptness and all around good humor that you all have come to expect from RBM. Lots of booze and not enough sleep will cause such problems. Read the rest of this entry »
So, it’s that time of year, again, when we get to see a dirty, half-drunk Santa dressed up and ringing a bell outside of the local shopping centers in honor of the Salvation Army. Before you reach into your pocket and pull out that handful of change and pocket lint, take a minute to read this post! If you are like me, then you want to do what you can to help change the world, but at the same time, you don’t want to help make it suck more. While the Salvation Army has helped out many many people, they have also turned their backs on many people in need… for instance: THE ENTIRE GAY COMMUNITY! That’s right, I said it. The Salvation Army is anti-homosexuality! Now, put that change back in your pocket! I have done my homework and have located lots of other charities where your money would be much more appreciated, such as Habitat For Humanity (which has a Christian background, but discriminates against no one).
Every year around late October, I start getting the same question from parents who visit the video game store that I work in. ”What’s the big present, this year?” Sometimes it’s out of curiosity, but more often than not, it’s because they want to know what to expect when they ask their kids what they want Santa to bring this year. Honestly, it flatters me that parents trust me with picking out the “big present under the tree.” See, I know I have outstanding taste in entertainment, and I have the mind of a 12-year-old, so they can expect me to give a clear picture of what I expect to sell very well each year. It helps that I get to try most of these games out before they release, and the fact that I spend lots of time corralling children in my store only adds to the fact that I’m aware of what’s the popular thing at any given time. So, because I’ve been asked by a close friend what the heck they should get for their heard of children (and I’m not kidding, there’s A LOT of kids in that household), I’ve compiled a list of recommendations.

Since most dopes think this is a sequel/remake, I’m not as bothered as I should be (mostly due to the fact that I have a brain in my head and know my Carpenter movies). Even the fact that it was created by the same shit-heads that made the atrocious Dawn of the Dead remake hasn’t deterred me. This looks like it’s going to be fantastic as hell.

No amount of prayers will help your movie, Momoa
Since the colossal success of The Lord of the Rings, studio execs have been trying to bank on the grand-scale epicness perfected by Peter Jackson. He managed to take the works of Tolkien to a level never dreamed possible while sticking true to the story and pacing them beautifully. Why other directors can’t follow suit is beyond me. These days they feel the need to bombard their audiences with quick/random cuts, grand swooping shots from the sky, and random scenarios that seem to say “hey, what do ya think of this?”. Sadly, the 2011 take on the classic epic Conan: The Barbarian did just that. Read the rest of this entry »
That’s right folks, it was 20 years ago today that Canadian animator/maniac John Kricfalusi warped the minds of 10-12 year olds across the globe. Never before had toilet humor and outlandish violence been captured so beautifully as it was with the help of an asthma-hound chihuahua and a semi-retarded cat. But if it wasn’t for the disturbing nonsensical chaos that Ren & Stimpy provided, I probably wouldn’t be the jolly ole Viking that I am today. Read the rest of this entry »
“Weird Al” Yankovic: Perform This Way
I’ve always been more of an old-school Al fan. Even though his recent albums are funny as all hell, I still don’t dig the bands he’s been parodying. But this new video makes my nostalgic heart feel like it’s stuck in a closet with Vanna White every time I hear this killer new shit from that lanky madman with the curly hair. He managed to rock my face off and disturb me for life all in the span of 15 seconds. Well played good sir. Well played.
It’s going to be hard for them to top T2, but if you ask me this T-X looks to be one bad ass mother eff.
One would assume that since MARVEL now has the power to make their own films they’d be able to make flawless comic book movies. Not so. Many would simply forget about the Fantastic Four flub, Ghost Rider‘s gaffe, and Electra‘s err…not me. A good handful of spot on renditions have come to the screen to prove that it can be done correctly. It just sucks when someone only goes half way. I just didn’t think the people behind X-Men: First Class would be in that category. Read the rest of this entry »
“Macho Man” Randy Savage: Speaking from the Heart
While a slew of morons are plastering religious nonsense all over the internet, some rather shocking information elbow-dropped me into my own religious experience….and not in a good way. It seems the greatest, most meticulous, professional wrestler has signed his contract to wrestle for eternity in the halls of Valhalla. Today, “Macho Man” Randy Savage passed away. TMZ has all the details that are known as of now. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s hard to believe that the world has gone a full year without Ronnie James Dio in it.
Alice Cooper: He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask)
How could I let a Friday the 13th slip by without listening to this song? Sure it’s from one of the lesser Friday movies, but you simply can’t ignore how awesomely amazing this tune is.
Remembering things that half the world forgot is one of my many mutant powers (being able to spot a female nipple in one frame of a movie is another one). Friends contact me at all hours of the night when they get stuck trying to remember something from their child hood, and 90% of the time I have the answer. It’s that fiendish 10% that gets under my skin. Every now and then my brain only shows me a few images of things that I should know instantly. That REEEALLY pisses me off. But I’m a very patient man. I know that if I wait long enough (and drink enough booze) the veil will be lifted and the knowledge will be mine. Today’s “Throwback” took me over 20 damn years, mostly due to a word that will forever haunt me…..PHOTON. Read the rest of this entry »
I know what you’re thinking. “This guy has problems.” Well, if by problems you mean a strong desire to be awesome, then you’re correct. Not many people have the balls to fully embrace something they love to the extent that I do, and that’s a shame. Why wouldn’t you want to absorb might, strength, and power into your daily lives? The Norsemen had the right idea, so grow a pair and live life the Viking way! MARVEL studios has been doing just that, and THOR is all the proof you need. Read the rest of this entry »
ManOwaR: Thor The Powerhead
Since I’ll be going to see THOR on the big screen in a few short hours, there was no other song I could think of to get me pumped enough to slay a few dozen Frost Giants.
By now, most of you know that the jerkface who caused 911 was killed last night. The government would have you believe it was due to a bullet in the brain by a special ops dude. Close. The bullet was actually a 2×4 and the special ops dude was Hacksaw Jim Duggan. HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
