Official: Michael Bay working on Transformers 3

December 14, 2009

From his official forum “Shoot for the Edit,” Bay has announced that he is working on Transformers 3. Originally he was going to take a year off and do other projects, but he has changed his plan and is working on TF3 for a July 2011 release.

[Autor’s Note] To make this post better, imagine Optimus Prime tearing off robot faces while each space between words is an explosion. Baytastic.

Seriously! Go look! After a long 3 month downtime, the free rental site Demonoid.com is back up. Their main page says they are running a test script to see how things work, but the downloads are working.

New Moon breaks box office record

November 22, 2009

This Twilight crap has got to stop. Somehow it managed to break the opening night box office record that was once held by The Dark Knight with $67.2 Million. New Moon managed to make $72.7 Million in just one day.

Excuse me, I’m going to go beat my head into a wall for an hour and a half.

Mischief. Mayhem. Soap

November 22, 2009

A Peruvian gang has been capturing local farmers, killing them and using their fat to produce soap to sell in the European cosmetics market.

Three members of the gang have arrested and confessed to at least five of the murders, and even detail how they went about rendering the fat.

I will put the rest of the story after the jump. Here is your first warning. The details are graphic, they are not for those with a weak stomach. They may make you question using soap.

Black Cat’s story in Spider-Man 4

November 15, 2009

Black Cat is straying from her comic book story for the upcoming Spider-Man 4.

Reports from Hey You Guys is saying that instead of trying to get her father out of prison, she is the daughter of the new editor at The Daily Bugle. She falls in love with Peter Parker, and discovers his super hero identity. Her father then dies, and she becomes a threat to Parker.

Doesn’t seem to be sticking true to her thief story roots. But when has a super hero movie stayed to the original story exactly?

Cort and Fatboy: Mediocrity at its finest

November 10, 2009

I doubt many of you have heard of these guys. Cort and Fatboy once hosted “The Cort and Fatboy” show on KUFO out of Portland, Oregon. You might be saying to yourself, “Wait, Nick is from Roanoke, VA. How does he know about this?!” A friend of mine on Xbox Live told me about them and I’ve been listening to them for a while.

Recently Cort and Fats had been fired from their spot on KUFO due to new owners and the owners screwing everything up. The community freaked out, without their afternoon radio hosts, daytime entertainment would suck!

Well the guys are back, and they have their own show on their website. They provide a daily podcast for your listening pleasure. They focus mainly on pop culture and current events. So if you need a good laugh, or just want to hear some smart mouthed snark, check them out.

Rachel McAdams as Black Cat?

November 10, 2009

Mania is reporting that Rachel McAdams has auditioned for Felicia Hardy in Spider-Man 4. Felicia Hardy, a.k.a. Black Cat, meets Spidey while being a cat burglar ( silly name, cause you don’t steal cats) to get her father out of prison.

Later on in their story, Black Cat becomes Spidey’s stalker, and they form a relationship. The story in the movie could work the same way, and give Sony another character to do a spin-off with.

No word on if she is confirmed for the role, or if anyone else has beat her to it.

Mania is also reporting that casting for a male villain for the movie is happening as well. No one knows who this will be yet, considering Spider-Man punches lots of bad dudes in the face.
