Daily Show Knocks It Out of the Park…

I had an odd feeling this weeks coverage of the Democratic National Convention was going to inspire the crew at The Daily Show to create a bit more humorous mayhem than usual…

I think this rather surreal biographical look at Barack Obama, entitled Barack Obama: He Completes Us was leaps and bounds beyond what I anticipated.

Brace yourselves, then enjoy.


Make note, this one should get blown up to mantle-size.

Regular updates to return soon. Just let me get acclimated to the new day job, and then content. Sweet, sweet content.

HOUSE OF THE DEAD Returns! Grindhouse Style!

Freshly announced for this fall, SEGA’s bringing back the much-loved (here at least) HOUSE OF THE DEAD franchise, with The House of the Dead: Overkill for the Nintendo Wii.

Of note, the title will feature a style similar to that seen in Grindhouse, with a mixture of zombie shooting action, and b-movie exploitation.

Suffice to say, I am THERE. Check out the trailer!

The DC/Marvel War Continues…Movie Style…

We’ve made no bones about three things here at Blast-O-Rama

1. Love Robert Downey Jr.

2. Love Marvel more than DC.

3. Think The Dark Knight is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

So I’m sure you can imagine the mixed feelings I had when I read this quote from Downey regarding The Dark Knight

“My whole thing is that that I saw ‘The Dark Knight’. I feel like I’m dumb because I feel like I don’t get how many things that are so smart. It’s like a Ferrari engine of storytelling and script writing and I’m like, ‘That’s not my idea of what I want to see in a movie.’ I loved ‘The Prestige’ but didn’t understand ‘The Dark Knight’. Didn’t get it, still can’t tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I’m like, ‘I get it. This is so high brow and so fucking smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.’ You know what? Fuck DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.”

Is Downey firmly supporting his new major employers? Or did he really have an issue with TDK? YOU MAKE THE CALL! (insert NFL music here…)
