30 Minutes Or Less is worth seeing.

30 Minutes stars Jesse Esienberg of Zombieland/Adventureland fame, along with the always funny Tom Haverford,  and the brash and unrelenting Danny McBride seemingly playing Kenny Powers or really any of his other character. I suppose he's playing Danny McBride at this point.

The story goes like this, Danny is a 30 something year old son of a former Military man who wound up winning the lotto. He wants his dads money so he devises a plan to kill him and inherit the money. He gets word he can get him killed for 100k so he sets out on another plan to get the money. He along with his best friend (Swardon) kidnaps a Pizza Boy (Eisenberg), strap a bomb to his chest and tell him to bring them 100k or he dies. Eisenberg of course goes and recruits his friend Aziz to help him and hilarity ensues.

Despite having 3 very different and funny actors, the one who stole the show was Michael Pena as the hired assassin. He has several lines that either make you smile or laugh out loud. He truly displays why he should be getting more roles than he does. I've personally been a fan since his run on The Shield back in 04 or 05.

Overall, it was a fun movie with quite a few solid laughs. A very cool soundtrack and one of the cooler songs for a chase scene ever imo.

The only thing that sorta bugged me, is that this is somewhat based on a true story. A few years ago, someone actually kidnapped a guy and forced him to rob banks and ended up killing him. I'm not one of those too soon types, but this movie seems to just take it in good fun despite the realistic event ending tragically.

Either way, go see it, don't, whatever. I personally enjoyed it. It's a brisk 90 minutes from opening credits to after credits scene.


First image of Zach Snyders Superman.

Henry Cavill doesn't look too bad. Better than Brandon Routh at least.

I'm not a fan of the scales on the suit though. Wasn't it suppose to be homemade?

As for the pic itself though, looks pretty neat. Explosions, good looking guy, and an iconic suit. Is there really anything else you need to see?

Overall I'm kind of stoked. I enjoy Snyder films, even if I'm the only one.

Rest in Peace Bubba Smith (Hightower)

Former NFL great and Police Academy star died today. For those that don't remember, Bubba Smith was a 2 time pro bowler and helped The Baltimore Colts beat The Cowboys in Super Bowl 5.

After removing himself from the gridiron though is perhaps where his most memorable appearances came, Police Academy. The 6 foot 7 athlete turned actor played the aptly named Hightower in the series. Despite his massive scary frame, he was very loveable and you just wanted to hug him.

As an avid football fan, and a fan of great 80's movies, I am saddened by this. With that said, I'll now go watch Citizens on Patrol.

Quick post for now. Gears of War 3 free Multi-Player character download.

Gears of War 3 plans to have the largest array of multi-player skins of the entire series and they just released a new one that's free unlike some of the other store specific ones.

Go to this link, "like" it and then install the silly program, they give you the code, enter it on XBL, then you can delete the program if you'd like after. It's simple and it's a pretty cool character voiced by Ice-T.

Not sure how many people are going to be using this character since it's assumed to be Facebook exclusive so who knows. Hope this helps at least one of you out.

New photo of Bane from The Dark Knight Returns.

TDKR is shaping up to be pretty epic. I'm not too big on the costume for Bane, but I'm a huge Tom Hardy fan, so him in anything is going to be awesome, even Star Trek Nemesis.

This pic to me makes him seem more more awesome, however it's also a bit silly since he's just walking around with that silly mask on.
