Have at it.

Even though I know what I'll be getting into, I will most definitely be in the theater come November.

On a slightly unrelated note, watching the trailer made me feel sorry for Will Yun Lee; poor dude (who is an American by birth) must be getting pretty tired of being typecast as Chinese and Korean commie bad guys, and not even getting to show off his martial arts talent most of the time. I guess that playing Colonel Moon in "Die Another Day" was sort of a curse for him...

This article makes me question my faith in humanity

On shooters:

Doom:

"You come across a door. It says YOU NEED THE BLUE KEY. So you find the blue key."

Modern FPS:


"John Stalvern follows his objective marker to the Blue Door. He gets a call from Joson (v. Steven Jay Blum) informing him that the Blue Door is locked and to go to Security Control, and that he must fight the demons. He follows a magical marker which appears in his HUD to tell him where Security Control is, only to find that the console has no Blue Key! Gasp!"

"Joson calls him again and informs him that there's a spare key in Engineering (though the Warehouse) and a magical marker appears. Stalvern Fights the Demons and gets to Engineering across a bridge, which promptly explodes. Joson tells him there's a way up through The Vents and a helpful marker appears telling John that he can't walk through the enormous pit of fire in front of him. John makes his way through the vents, coming out through a ground-level grate ten feet from Security Control."

"But Gasp! The Cyber-Demon attacks and John drops the Blue Key in a cutscene! Joson tells him to go to the Blue Door where, behind some glass, a Programmer Self-Insert works on a console while some monsters bash on the door behind him. He BRAVELY opens the Blue Door just before the monsters kill him with an attack they don't have. John continues, wondering why he's even in this game."

Speaking as someone who liked Final Fantasy XIII, what's wrong with that model of gameplay? :p


(I kid; the linearity is one of the few things I dislike about that game.)

Swordfish941 08-15-2012 04:30 AM

Sweet!! This better be better than that crapy Affleck film.

If there's any benefits to having a rough economy, here's one.

commando552 08-15-2012 06:50 PM

Anyone know anything about the upcoming indie film "Dog Tags"? Google isn't being very helpful due to the fact it shares its title with a 2008 film "Dog Tags: Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

I've long wondered though: has there ever been a DTV sequel or spinoff better than the original?

BlackIce_GTS 08-16-2012 02:32 AM

Buffy? I don't really remember the movie, I don't think it was very good.
I've never seen the MASH movies, so I don't know how they compare to the show.
Those are both TV series though, the only movie I can think of is Behind Enemy Lines 3. It may not have been better than the original, but it was a lot better then the second one.

Well yeah, but I meant DTV spinoffs.

So maybe we can pencil in Zombie Lee Marvin and Zombie Steve McQueen in Expendables 4?

S&Wshooter 08-17-2012 10:49 PM

I picked up one of those "Double Feature" DVDs with Under Seige 1 & 2 on it.

Excalibur 08-18-2012 01:18 AM

Just saw Expendables 2. It was a fun movie to watch. A lot of action. Guns, guns, guns, guns

Or at least Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel, two notable names absent from that list of people they're eying. One could even make a valid argument that Matt Damon would be a good addition based on his performance in the Bourne films.

Clint Eastwood doesn't really fit the Expendables vibe, IMO.

Zombie Bronson!!!

Just wondering; am I the only person in the universe who played Binary Domain? It's a pretty neat near-future cover shooter which you should be able to pick up for less than half full retail price and has lots of exploding robots. Just ignore the utterly dreadful first level, it gets really good after that.

I'd never heard of it until now. Wow, it's been out for six months? I'll pick it up if it falls to the right price.

S&Wshooter 08-19-2012 08:11 PM

I'm seeing The Expendables 2 in a little while

Evil Tim 08-19-2012 08:33 PM

Some pretty nicely rendered weapons in it, too.

(click for 1980x1080)

Underbarrel thing is a particle cannon, also fitted with a striking muzzle seemingly just because a regular one was too boring. Apparently the gripped PMAG there is a real thing, some company called Rainier makes adhesive non-slip coated pads to go in the gaps of PMAGs.

funkychinaman 08-22-2012 06:55 PM

I played a demo of the Expendables 2 video game last night. It wasn't bad, I'm just not sure it's worth $15. If it goes on sale though, I'd consider it.

SPEMack618 08-23-2012 02:35 PM

Saw the Expendables 2 last night. It was pretty good. The best part was of course the scenes with Chuck. Also saw the trailer for Jack Reader, and am a bit miffed that Tom Cruise is playing Jack Reader, who in the books is about six-six and 250 pounds of silent kick ass.

Guess The Rock wasn't available

The Expendables 2 movie was just fun. You are not supposed to pay attention to the story, what little of it and enjoy the action. I wish Jet Li was in it longer. They kinda wrote him off 15 minutes into the film.

I also wished the paired weapons of Norris and Arnold with their respective movies. Like Arnold busting out a Desert Eagle after emptying an old fashion M16 with the grenade launcher and Norris with that G3 from Delta Force 2. Bruce Willis should have pulled out a Beretta 92 after he was done with his rifle. It would have been awesome to see Stallone go at it with an M60 like old times

funkychinaman 08-24-2012 12:45 PM

A remake I could live with.

I may have been reading too much into it, but I thought Chuck using the G-36 with underslung grenade launcher was a shout out to his -91 from MIA: 3.

Heck, I would have liked him to use his Scout Rifle from Lone Wolf MacQuade

Mandolin 08-28-2012 01:53 AM

Norris didn't have a grenade launcher, he just had a G36C

funkychinaman 08-29-2012 11:07 PM

I'm sold. God forbid Eddie Murphy actually star in something people might want to watch.

Would have been cool if he had the G3 with the grenade launcher from that one movie, Arnold pulls out a Desert Eagle after firing an RPK and Willis shoots a 92

Spartan198 09-03-2012 07:07 AM

Even as a WWE fan, I still can't help but be troubled by this. :(

S&Wshooter 09-03-2012 09:48 PM

The new Bourne movie felt like it was a little too short

SPEMack618 09-04-2012 12:34 AM

Tangentally related to firearms, ther is a hilarious "hunting accident" in it, but "The Campaign" was friggin' hilarious.

Oh, and I don't pretend to know everyone's political views, but Obama 2016 was also very nicely done.

Excalibur 09-04-2012 12:59 AM

SPEMack618 09-04-2012 02:15 AM

Damn. I will always remember him as Bear, and standing up to a Mossberg armed Bruce Willis with a big ass wrench.

Forgive my indulgence, but perhaps he and Commander Armstrong can swap
"So there I was..." stories as Tony Scott writes a screenplay.

Excalibur 09-15-2012 04:30 AM

I'm currently watching a new anime that has a bunch of guns in it. It's a pretty old one, pre HD widescreen, so it's weird to see the caps all square.

It's actually kinda funny when someone told me it's about demon slaying and the collector's box gives nothing away. I thought the show took place in some kind of fantasy place with guns...then I discovered it took place in 1928 NYC.

S&Wshooter 09-15-2012 04:49 AM

I watched Raw Deal, New Jack City, and Safe back-to-back earlier. I had not seen Safe before, but it was fairly entertaining.

funkychinaman 09-16-2012 06:11 PM

Ummm, okay. But what's with the hand?

I can't really see a modern Robocop without Deus Ex: Human Revolution-style branded and warning labelled cybernetics, personally. Where's the little adjustment screw outlines and warnings to use high grade mech oil only or whatever?
