I haven't watched it, but this sounds like a more Michael Bay retelling of On the Beach.

I had a pair of CH-53Es fly over my neighborhood a few days ago. Damn those things are loud.

I'm okay with the idea of a Predator remake, and I'm okay with the director of Ironman 3 behind it. I am NOT okay with the writer of Robocop 3 writing it though.

I could totally be onboard with this if they just hired a better writer. Hell, just have Shane Black write the script.

Everyone involved with trying to remake Predator need to be beheaded in a huge public spectacle, because you just know they'll fuck it up. Badly, too

Spartan198 06-25-2014 11:36 AM

Better to wait until they have something to show before passing judgment, IMO. You might be surprised. The RoboCop remake turned out pretty well despite initial concerns, after all.

That's what I usually do when a remake/reboot comes out.

New Brad Pitt movie in WWII. At about 1:59, I was very surprised to see a Sturmgewehr https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OGvZoIrXpg

It looks like he's got it slung at 0:15.

I don't think StG44s are particularly rare in movie armories, and even if they were, replicas like the BD44 are available.

funkychinaman 06-26-2014 09:11 AM

The talk of a Predator remake got me wondering: What ever happened to John McTiernan? The guy gave us the original Predator, Die Hard, and The Hunt for Red October (which might be the greatest four year run in Hollywood history,) but hasn't made a decent film since 1999. (Thomas Crowne Affair?)

I know he did a year for wiretapping or something, but according to Wikipedia, he got out of the joint back in April. Hopefully he can keep working. If Roman Polanski can keep working, I'd like to think John McTiernan can get his career back on track.

How many western WWII films have the STG-44s? This is something you just don't see often.

I know we have a list somewhere... ;)

According to IMDB, it was shot in the UK, and it doesn't seem like there's a shortage there. Even the Dirty Dozen sequel, a TV movie, had them. I'm not saying there's enough to equip a battalion of extras, but they're around. And as I said, someone does make brand new replicas.

funkychinaman 06-26-2014 08:26 PM

Everyone relax, it's just a sequel.

We need to make more WWII movies in the UK or in Europe where we can get the STG-44s in movies

Or at least use Russian armorers. I don't think I've ever seen more StG-44s than I did in Downfall.

Swordfish941 06-27-2014 03:18 AM

I just watched Uwe Boll's House of the Dead, and it lived up t its reputation of being godawful. The Resident Evil films are Oscar Worthy compared to this piece of shit (and at least the action scenes were good in them, unlike Boll's film).

Why do that to yourself?

Excalibur 06-27-2014 03:38 AM

Dear God, I haven't seen a Boll movie in forever!

So I could see how bad it was myself rather than just take everyone's word for it.

And Uwe Boll somehow managed to make a shootout scene unenjoyable.

Spartan198 06-27-2014 03:41 AM

At this point, I think the only reason Boll is still making movies is to troll his haters.

funkychinaman 06-27-2014 05:14 AM

If you're still a glutton for punishment, the 1968 Tunnel Rats page is incomplete. I've decided I'm not going anywhere near a Uwe Boll film.

funkychinaman 06-27-2014 10:25 PM

Seems like a no-brainer, considering how well it did internationally.

2017? But I want it now!

funkychinaman 06-28-2014 10:05 PM

I want to line up and stooge-slap everyone who paid for a ticket.

I'm about to go see this with my dad, only to see how much Bay fucks up this time.

Swordfish941 06-29-2014 06:57 PM

Looks like Michael Bay's making an unofficial remake of Primer, excepted its watered down and marketed at the teeny bopper crowd:

Excalibur 06-30-2014 02:46 AM

Yeah, looks like they also stole a premise from an Anime I saw a while back called Steins Gate

I always said I'd watch Eva Green do anything, but I'm starting to question that.

Found a teaser trailer for the new Doom game:

I'm more interested in The Division.

Swordfish941 07-04-2014 03:16 PM

I just watched the first two episodes of Mad Bull 34. This was my reaction to it in a nutshell:

funkychinaman 07-06-2014 05:09 PM

Normally, I would not watch nearly nine minutes analyzing Michael Bay, but I can't really say no when I recently watched five hours of analysis on the Star Wars prequels.

It's pretty fascinating though.

Swordfish941 07-06-2014 09:02 PM

That was a very interesting video.

Now I wish there was a video analyzing his misogyny.

funkychinaman 07-09-2014 05:04 AM

Just getting familiar with Yahoo Screen since Community is moving there, and I came across an old classic SNL sketch.

At least Sly is self-aware.

Speaking of Micheal Bay, I've just seen 3 episodes of The Last Ship...it really is Contagion the series and has nothing similar to the book...but as being a Micheal Bay thing...it's a jerk off to the US military and how awesome it is like in all Micheal Bay pictures...that being said, I wonder how he's going to do the Turtles and still jerk off to the US military?

I wouldn't be surprise if Bay slip that line into the movie.

And despite the fact that he's only a producer, this movie has Bay's fingerprints all over it.
