Our Terrible Internet: Star Wars Corsets

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Star Wars gets worse every year.  Not because the prequel movies were mediocre, or because there is a kids’ show based on the Clone Wars, but because of the Star Wars fans.  Everything you hated about Star Trek fans?  Star Wars fans will find a way to do it worse now.

But let’s combine that with corset fetishes and you have this:

Corsets can be sexy, but this isnt the way to do it...

It doesn’t help that their models look kind of creepy and plastic-ey like Barbie dolls.  Ew.

What have you wrought, Rise of Cobra?

Seeing Shipwreck likes this seems…wrong. He’s not even in the movie!

G.I. Joe is a movie now

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Like a live action one with actual actors. And it entertained me. It wasn’t good by any stretch of the imagination, but I did not want my money back.

Really I didn’t mind the cheese or the bad dialog, because it is G.I. Joe after all. What I did mind is how it falls apart at the end with really bad Star Wars idea ripoffs. It’s also made dumber than you would expect by the inclusion of a whole personal relationship subplot that is complex, silly, and doesn’t fit in the G.I. Joe story very well.

Wait for the DVD. And watch G.I. Joe Resolute first.

TRON Legacy

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

Two things:

  • Not much new since the original teaser except a much better-quality tralier.
  • Tron Legacy is a much, much better name than TR2N.
  • Hell yeah!  It’s gonna be in THREE DEE!  That’s one more dee than I had expected.
  • I guess that was more than two things.

Last minute edit: Also, Daft Punk. WOO!

“Leather-Wreck?! I’ll wreck you!”

Yeah, I know we’ve all seen this, but:

I love it. Of course, I’m “that guy” that loved the Transformers movie, too. It won’t be perfect, but given what Hollywood is willing to pump out, it looks good to me.

Besides, do you really want this on your movie screen? Do you?

Yeah.  That COULD be the way they did it, people.

My Top 10 most influental kids movie moments from the 80s and slightly before

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Everyone has moments they remember and treasure from their favorite movies they saw as a kid, and there’s no question in my mind that these things can have an impact on a young mind. I’m talking about the kind of impact that transforms a potentially productive member of society into a lame, lazy “Generation X-er” who has nothing better to do than blog about cereal commercials and collect G.I. Joe toys and comic books. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite 80s(ish) kid’s film moments: some inspiring, some terrifying. These may not be the most famous or commonly quoted movie scenes out there, but they caused inspiration, terror, and a dangerous obsession with cool special effects in a generation of kids. Or at least me.

Bear with us for our inaugural “real article” that isn’t just some crap I found on YouTube. Hopefully, I will be just barely lazy enough that I can keep a few of these coming, without being so lazy I actually decide to go and do something productive. Enjoy.
