In many ways Western media is doing a much better job promoting North Korea than their propagandists. I don't think any North Korean seriously believes they can invade and conquer the United States, and yet Homefront and the new Red Dawn has them doing just that.

It's more of a funny idea than to be taken seriously. Also the guys who did the new Red Dawn and Homefront wanted it to be China but...I chuckle to see if the People's Republic can get pass the US Navy.

New Captain America costume, and Hawkeye is dressed as... Legolas (5/9)?

North Korea asked the Czech Republic to ban the movie shortly after it came out, but they refused. That was about the only reaction it garnered from the NorKos.

So I just saw the demo footage of Homefront Revolution and it does look interesting. I can clearly see the work of the guys behind Farcry and Crysis. It does look promising and realistically, any direction is a step up from the first game.

Some of the things I like about it is savaging around for parts, the feel of open world and real time customizing of your weapon. You can actually see your character remove the scope and put on a different one.

I hope we get to see more weapons. I've only seen you wield an M4 type gun and a Beretta which I hope isn't the ONLY pistol like the last game.

It looks like they're taking inspiration from the Ronin costume (an identity that Hawkeye assumed for some time in the comics).

And I actually don't mind Wanda and Pietro's costumes (trust me, it could of been worse).

The Raid 2 is absolutely brutal, and I don't mean that in a bad way. It's a very hard R. They must've bought fake blood by the tanker. But if you can stand it and love action films, it's a must-see.
