SHELLHEAD vs. THE WRESTLER? or MICKEY ROURKE in IRON MAN 2!

Chalk this one up to complete surprise.

After getting some huge pub for his role in The Wrestler (which I’ve piratedseen, and is really fucking great), it looks like Mickey Rourke is heading right into a lead villain role for Iron Man 2.

Who is Rourke apparently in talks to play?  Well, it depends on your source.  The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that Mickey’s gonna be pulling a Devo and whipping it good as the villain Whiplash.  Variety says otherwise, and claims that Rouke would be suiting up as the red Russian ball of fury called the Crimson Dynamo.

Personally, I’d rather see Dynamo on screen, as it’d further the story of the first flick, namely that Stark’s technologies are being put in the wrong hands.  And nothing says wrong hands (or terrible 80s action movie) quite like AN EVIL RUSSIAN!

Also rumored to be signing on to Iron Man 2 is Sam Rockwell, an incredible actor who you can file under “don’t know his name, but know his face.”  Seriously, check his iMDB page.  The sheer amount of “OH MAN, HE WAS THAT GUY?” will leave your forehead raw with slaps.  Rockwell is in talks to play the evil (notice a trend here?) weapons developer Justin Hammer.

All and all, I’d say with Rockwell as Hammer, action sequences by way of my boy Genndy, and hopefully Rourke as Dynamo, Iron Man 2 is going to be a hell of a flick come Summer 2010.

It’s Like The Oscars For Assholes! RAZZIE NOMS Announced!

In the world of film, there is no greater award or accolade than the Oscar.  But every positive needs to have a negative, right?

That’s where the Razzies come in.

The Razzies are all about awarding (or publically humilating?) the worst that the world of film has to offer.  And while I feel that 2008 might have just been one of the best years of motion picture this decade, there sure was (apparently) a lot of crap.

Just beyond the cut, I have listed this years nominations.  I’m kind of surprised by some of the selections (I really enjoyed Speed Racer), but some aren’t a surprise in the least (Fuck you, Meet the Spartans!  But hey, any awards show dedicated to pointing out how much Hollywood is ruining things with remakes and sequels ahoy gets a thumb’s up in my book.

Left 4 Dead: MADE EVEN BETTER


As Dead of Summer proved, I love Zombies.

But in addition to zombies, I love Slim Jim spokesman/80’s icon “Macho Man” Randy Savage.

So when I hear that there’s a mod for the super-popular LEFT 4 DEAD that adds a taste of the “madness” to the game…well, I had to check it out.

It’s even better than anticipated. Check check it.
