Shatner of the Mount...

I was watching Attack of the Show today and they highlighted this video. It is William Shatner on the set of Star Trek V. He is talking about a sequence in the movie. That may not sound very interesting. But after YouTube user: fallonyoursword69 gets a hold of it, the footage is re-edited and techo music is added. It changes everything!

The video is funny enough on it's own. But they couldn't stop there. They took it one step futher and made "William Shatner's Sex Hikes"?!? :)

San Diego Comic Con 2009!

For anyone who doesn't know, this week there is a comic book convention in San Diego. Check that, THE comic book convention is San Diego. What started out as a simple comic book convention, has turned into the sci-fi geek event of the year! Every movie studio is there showing exclusives. Every video game company is there showing the best of the best. If you want to promo anything in pop culture, this is where you go. Sadly, I am not there...AGAIN. But there are lots of people reporting and tweeting and taking tons of pics and writing blogs about their time there.

But besides the buzz and hype the real focus is on comics. This is where comic book characters become big summer blockbusters! Who knows what crazy mutant or super hero will become the next 'Batman' or 'Superman''s I, II, III, etc. I don't. But it's very fun to watch the madness unfold!

Here is the official website.

Here is the unofficial history from Wikipedia.

Here are some great pics from Marvel!

Movie Trailer for Jennifer's Body

Here's another movie trailer that I found yesterday. It's Jennifer's Body.

Here is the info from Wikipedia:

Jennifer's Body is a 2009 dark comedy and horror film written by Diablo Cody. The film, described as similar in tone to Heathers,[2] will be directed by Karyn Kusama, and stars Megan Fox as the title character, Amanda Seyfried as her best friend Needy, and Adam Brody as the antagonist Nikolai. The movie is named after a song by Hole.

A cheerleader with the perfect life becomes the girl from hell when she gets possessed and begins killing boys in a small town.

It looks like a bloody good time! :)

Living off the Grid

Hello! Some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted anything in a week! This is because our home pc was taken over by a computer virus! A very nasty one too! It shut down our wireless network, so I was unable to go on-line. I had my iphone, but it's really not the same.

The virus that we had was The SYSTEM SECURITY VIRUS. Here is a help page from PC Magazine. This program looks like an anti-virus program, but it is really the virus!! It takes over your computer and tells your "you have a virus, you better scan your pc now!" (with their program that does God knows what to your pc!) Until you run their program, you can't do anything. And I mean anything!! When you click on any other program, it pops up with a "warning" That program is infected too. It even goes so far to change your wallpaper with another "warning message". Elyse spent 2 days restoring the entire pc and rebuilding our wireless network.

If you get this nasty piece of software beware! Make sure your anti-virus programs are up-to-date!

Mean Robots Suck!

Last night my wife and I went to go see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. You might think that I didn't like the movie, based on my Title, but it's just a line from the movie! It was very good! I know that this film has gotten some pretty bad reviews. But I liked the first movie, so I was anxious to see this one. Whenever I go to a big summer-blockbuster, I kinda know what to expect. And this movie delivers the goods. I.E. giant robots fighting each other!

The movie takes place 2 years after the events of the 1st movie. There is a long and detailed plot, but the short version is the Decepticons want to destroy the Earth, the Autobots want to stop them and they need the humans to help them. That's really all you need to know. You strap yourself in and hang on for a wild ride!

Shia LaBeouf does a good job of playing Sam, the unlikely hero. There are just some roles that were meant for certain actors. Or roles that people were born to play. If someone else played Sam, it would just seem wrong.

Megan Fox is back as Sam's girlfriend. She has a couple of good scenes. Her and Sam seem to spend a lot of time, running from explosions. But she looks very good while she does it! :)

Most of the other 'human' characters are there, Sam's parents for comedic value. Josh Duhamel & Tyrese Gibson as soldiers fighting along side with the Autobots. But the real scene stealer is John Turturro who returns in the role of Seymour Simmons, a government agent who looking into alien activity. He has lots of funny lines and helps the movie move along.

If your expecting high drama or big belly laughs, you have lots of other choices this summer. But if your in the mood for a fun movie with tons of eye candy, this is it!

"Autobots, roll out!!"
