Two Films, One Trailer

November 10, 2007

I remember seeing the trailer for the new Beowulf movie and thinking “man, I need to watch 300 again”. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who noticed the odd similarities between the two movies. However, the similarities between the two trailers is what I find truly amazing (and depressing). Check out the link below for the original post, and full comparison…

Thanks to FXRant for this one.


The C.L.I.T. is Real

October 29, 2007

Its the female orgasm that’s the myth.

Just one of many great quotes from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. But now, instead of watching the movie for the 8oth time, you can play with the inaction figures. Use the menu on the left to check out cool stuff from the other movies of the View Askew universe. Immature humor meets odd looking toys…it doesn’t get better than that.

Watch Instantly

October 3, 2007

I don’t how many of you have a subscription to Netflix, but I just recently started taking advantage of their “Watch Instantly” feature which allows you to watch selections from your queue right on your computer. I wasn’t too interested in this when it first rolled out, as distribution rights seem to limit what you are able to “watch instantly”.

This changed when I noticed that they offer a good number of television series through this service. My friends have been hassling me lately for not watching Heroes. I told them that I don’t have a real interest in watching the second season (which recently stared), as I had not seen any of the first. However, since I have stumbled across this feature…I have been on a Heroes marathon, trying to catch myself up to speed on the series. They even have previously aired episodes of season 2 available, which means that I can catch up without waiting for a season to end.

I would sit here and go on about it some more, but I have some Heroes to watch.

King of Kong

August 25, 2007

“It’s not even about Donkey Kong anymore”

If only I had a nickel for every time I have had to use the phrase above.

The idea that there was a documentary made about Donkey Kong is both sad and awesome at the same time. Although the “Billy” character takes himself way to seriously…he has inspired me to start answering my phone “World Record Headquarters”. Ha!

Die Hard & Rock Out

June 30, 2007

This song/music video from Guyz Nite is pretty awesome. If you check out their myspace they have done a version to include Live Free or Die Hard.

While listening to the song, it made me realize something I had not previously paid much attention to…where the hell did Al go? Even with seeing the third film more times than I can count, I never paid attention to the fact that he was not in it. According to this song, he doesn’t show up in fourth installment either. Al, your memory will live on in our hearts.

I leave you with what is possibly the best line of the song…
“and the terrorists were overzealous, but it was sweet when they killed Ellis”
