Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Trailer 2

New Transformers 2 trailer.

I know there is a lot of talk about Michael Bay movies being explosions and circling camera angles, but let's be honest: A person goes to Michael Bay movies for those explosions and fun-times, not for the story. Who cares about the story in a Bay movie? No one, that's who.
I want things to blow up, explode and get mashed to pieces; that's what I want...and it looks like I'll get it...

Check out 2:10 when Devastator gets his devastate on...

District 9 Trailer

What? An original movie idea? Why, that's preposterous!

District 9, from what I can gleam, is about some refugees in South Africa who aren't wanted by anyone. The catch: They are alien refugees, like literally alien refugees. As in from outer-space aliens. It's interesting because they are playing up on how people react when human "alien" refugees move into an area they aren't wanted. I'm sure this may allow some violent things to occur to the aliens because for most people seeing them hurt won't be a big deal, or at least not as heartbreaking as it would to see humans hurt. I don't really get that, either way I assume it will make me sad.

Check it out!

G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra French trailer

Coming soon to your SyFy Satur...oh,'s NOT a SyFy Channel Original Movie? It's a bloated, expensive piece of crap coming out in actual theatres? Oh...

The French subtitles aren't the bad part...the movie is the bad part. It looks bad, really bad. 1:53 is the start of a particularly bad part.

Arnie to appear in Terminator: Salvation

Well, according to, via Variety, 'ol Arnie is going to be in the next Terminator movie. It may just be a digital image of his face on someone else's body, which sucks for that actor, but never-the-less, that is frakkin' awesome!

It's been rumored for awhile that he is going to be appearing in the movie, but then the reports kept plopping back and forth that maybe he wouldn't appear.

Arnie to appear in T:4 after all.

Life on Mars Series Finale *possible SPOILERS*

Last Wednesday Sam Tyler's travels back to 1973 came to an end with an ending that was...not good. It's almost like they found out they would be cancelled, went back and filmed an ending that made what was a good episode up until this point, suck.

For those not in the know, Life On Mars is about Sam Tyler, a policeman in 2008, who gets hit by a car while out looking for a suspect. He wakes up on the street in 1973, or is he in a coma? There were a lot of questions about whether or not he was in a coma or was dead or what? He goes to his precinct and everyone is different and well, act like they'd act in 1973. He eventually realizes that he is in 1973 and that he better figure out a way to get home. He thinks he has to rescue himself, his mother, his dad (played as a total ass by one Dean Winters), really anyone who he ever knew. Each time he finds that, no, that isn't the reason he is here. He also hears and sees things. It began with just hearing hospital noises and seeing people from his past (current timeline?) on his TV, but slowly morphed into seeing the Mars Rover all the time, everywhere he went. I believe this is due to the dumb ending they came up with.

Anyway, it all boils down to Sam realizing that the reason he's back in 1973 is to find Annie. So he goes back to the station, Annie gets promoted and Sam hugs Gene and then the screen goes pixely and we are on a spaceship. Sam wakes up, as do all the other characters, and it turns out there was a glitch in his sleep-programming which caused him to be hit by a car, go back to 1973 and see Rovers and hear things. The neighbor girl was the ships computer and she called him 2B because that was his sleep pod number. They are on a mission to Mars and the whole thing was, in essence, a glorified dream sequence. A real cop out nowadays.

Overall the show was fun, exciting and Jason O'Mara was not only good to look at, he was also believable. I'm going to buy it on DVD, but I don't think the ending was what it should have been. I think they should have made the ending go from him thinking the whole reason he came to 1973 was Annie. He wakes up in 2008 in the hospital and in walks Annie. Now that would have been a likeable ending.

Best Usage of Music in a TV Show: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

When music is used well in a show, it highlights and amplifies the message being conveyed, so I'm starting a new feature that I will periodically post about that covers music used in TV shows. That is, music used well in a TV show. The first entry will be about music used in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

T:SCC's is about the plight of Sarah Connor to protect her son John from the machines that are trying to kill him. It carries on from the end of the amazing second entry into the series, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and completely skips over any and all events that took place in the third Terminator movie.

There are three stellar entries in the usage of music that I want to share and so they are going to be pasted below:

1. 'Adam Raised a Cain' from Season 2, episode 21. This was just from Friday's episode so *SPOILERS*
It features Weavers daughter, Savannah, singing 'Donald Where's Your Trousers' with John Henry.

2.'Samson and Delilah' Season 2, episode 1.
Song 'Samson and Delilah' as covered by the fantastic Shirley Manson. Used in the opening montage of season 2's premiere episode as Cameron wakes up and finds her chip damaged. She heads off into the house where we assume she is going to help John and Sarah, but instead she is following her original orders from before she was reprogrammed: Terminate John Connor. I'm adding a bonus scene, non-music related because it's awesome.

When Cameron begins to plead with John that she is all fixed now and that she can be trusted and that she loves him and he loves her, the look on John's face is priceless.

3. 'What He Beheld' Season One, Episode 9
Song "The Man Comes Around" by Johnny Cash. It's at the end of the episode when Ellison and the rest of the FBI arrive to take the man they think is an actor who decided to go on a killing spree, (who is really Cromartie) into custody and things go wrong with deadly consequences.

The Hangover trailer B

So, I admittedly have a thing for Bradley Cooper, so slapping his fine ass in anything will make me go watch it. Now, making that a movie with Ed Helms, Zach G and Justin Bartha and I am there with an even bigger smile. Plus, it comes out the weekend of my birthday.

If you need proof as to WHY I have a thing for Bradley Cooper (ever since his first Alias appearance in the pilot episode), see 0:35. Mmmmm...
