Someone has been kind enough to edit together their idea of what the 100 greatest movie insults are. I don't necessarily agree with all of them and also think they probably missed a few that i would have deemed worthy, However, it is still amusing and a good way to spend 10 minutes.
The most anticipated film for 2012. For me anyways.
We're going back to the universe that was created in 1979 and we'll see the origins of life itself. Big Ideas. Original Sci Fi!
A few points of interest
- The film seems very physical, models, props and sets (a certain lack of CG, YAH!)
- The derelict ship from Alien. It's there, we're looking right at it!
- The Space Jockey's chair rising up at 44 seconds. GOOSEBUMPS!
- RIDLEY SCOTT IS DOING SCI FI AGAIN!

Really seems like a lot of the things I talked about here in July are actually true.
2011 saw the release of some of the greatest games I have ever played, unfortunately and ultimately disappointingly it also saw the release of the worst (MW3 thus will not be making it onto this list aside from this small mention.) I have tried to distill this list of 11 games across all platforms from iOS to xbox.
Love it or hate it.... You absolutely have to love the fact that Peter Jackson and his team, are able to seamlessly pick up from where they left off, which will be a 9 year gap since the release of Return of the King. Enjoy. Now only 12 more months to go.......
The new Nolan Batman film entitled like a lacklustre Star Wars film has finally released it's trailer. It looks pretty damn sweet and I'm sure everyone is excited DKR after the behemoth that was Dark Knight. It's out July next year.
Two Things that I like here.
- Bane, that voice, that look! (a vast improvement on Schumacher's attempt)
- That running shot in the Football Stadium
About 6 months ago, Castle Awesome posted an article about a new TV show titled "Awake", which was due to premiere on NBC's fall lineup (September).
If you weren't aware.... it hasn't.
So I write this, to you, about some bad news....
Unfortunately, due to certain circumstances, production was shut down a few months ago. Although this does not mean the end for the show, it does mean that show has been delayed a further 6 months from it's original air date. Keep an eye out for it in March 2012.
Of course, there is some good news that comes with this. News that makes me want to wait. News that makes me think, "good things, take time".
The reason the production was shut down, was due to it's complexity and ambition. Complexity and ambition of what? You might say.
Production has come to a halt because filming of the episodes had caught up to the script writing process. Obviously, this is no normal tv show, and it will heavily rely on the tangled story that can be seen in the trailer.
It's no easy feat for a network TV show to compete with the big three cable networks (HBO, Showtime and AMC). I hope that it doesn't stink. Watch the trailer if you haven't seen it already.
Is anyone else completely creeped out by this. Germans are already creepy enough, now they are laughing maniacally on a train. There is something going on beneath the surface here that just screams "We are German and we know something you don't."
Whilst this has been around for a while now, people have started to get creative.
There are a number of shady institutions that will print whatever you like onto a coke bottle or can - and they look every bit like the real thing.
There have been numerous reports of some cheeky pranksters planting some of their forged coke bottles in supermarket shelves on some kind of anti coke crusade.
personally, i find the pointlessly rude ones the best.
Fuck baguette vending machines, the new craze is fresh made pizza.
Being able to grab a fresh pizza after 1:00am would make me a happy man.
Find out more about Lets Pizza here. unfortunately it seems like its only available in the UK at the moment, but hopefully soon we shall be graced with its presence.
If you had trouble understanding exactly what was going on in Star Wars IV: A New Hope, never fear, a young Japanese girl named Mika has made a video explaining the nitty gritty details of the film to us in very simple details. Great because I was bamboozled.
Remember, it's important to be Jedi. Check out Mika's other explanations of things/films on this channel.
MIT has built a camera that shoots at 1 trillion frames per second.
Remember the first time you saw bullet time, you shit your pants.
This is like that, but instead of watching bullets move slowly through the air, MIT is able to capture video at the speed of light.
On March 21 2003 the first EP/anything was released on the new born label Ed Banger records by the french Mr. Flash. The EP was called Radar Rider and came about after Pedro Winter (Ed Banger head honcho) was so impressed by the unique disco/hip hop beats he'd heard from the bearded individual.
Mr. Flash had only released a single EP before the release of Radar Rider and only five since. He does however make Hip Hop beats for other artists, including the talented Mos Def.
His sound really defined that now familiar sound that Ed Banger was known for back in the day and his music continues to sound so very fresh today.
So finally he's coming to Australia for the very first time and you should be wetting your pants with joy. Make sure you get out to see him and prepare for a heavy set that journeys to a hip hoptastic ending.
Check out one of his more intense/dark tracks below. Brilliant music video (NSFW) even better track.
