Have you ever wondered how many men Sylvester Stallone has killed on-screen through the various roles he’s had over the years? Well, this video has you covered.
First observation nearly everybody made (thanks ‘Archer’): Bond’s wearing a Tactleneck!
Second observation: We get it’s iconic, but you can do a lot better than a Walther PPK is this day and age, Bond! Also, keep your damn finger off that trigger!
Third observation: As with ‘Archer’, the outfit is clearly a ‘Live and Let Die’, possibly even a ‘Bullitt’ reference.
The classic satirical disaster comedy film ‘Airplane!’ turned 35 years old today. Abrahams and the Zucker Brothers sure knew how to write a winner.
Film making duo, the McHenry Brothers, spends $6 Million assembling a cast of vintage GI Joe and Action Man figures in order to create a 1/6 scale, stop action World War Two comedy entitled, “Jackboots on Whitehall”.

Featuring the use of Helikon-Tex CPUs in PenCott-BadLands camouflage pattern, Halo: Nightfall will become a feature-length film scheduled to release on March 17 this year for DVD, Blue-ray and on digital channels including iTunes.
See the new trailer here…
Good luck finding another pic of Snake Eyes without his helmet on.
This is Matt from Tactical Pro Shop with Ray Park on the set of GI Joe in New Orleans during filming in 2011.
It’s just a teaser trailer, and it’s already better than all three prequel movies combined.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out December 2015.
Iron Sky is a goofy movie that can be summed up as such: Moon Nazis.
The sequel looks even sillier.
Hardcore: the first ever full-length action movie filmed from a first person perspective.
The Foliage Green MaxPedition FR-1 Medical Pouch was spotted in ‘Furious 7′ movie trailer, the latest in ‘The Fast And The Furious’ series.
Trick Or Treat studios has released a pretty high-quality officially licensed ‘They Live’ Alien mask. They eye slits are pretty restrictive, but the directions say to take a sharp pair of scissors to them if you need better visibility, so it’s a non-issue.
An early leak of the Age of Ultron teaser trailer has forced Disney to release it officially, a day ahead of its intended release after tomorrow’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Gotta say, it looks pretty damn cool, what with the Hulkbuster Armor, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (which thanks to convoluted contractual loopholes is conveniently unrelated to his Days of Future Past incarnation), and big bad Ultron, in this continuity a creation of Tony Stark, not Hank ‘Ant-Man’ Pym.
Age of Ultron drops May 15th, 2015.
These images were sent to us by TFB reader Case Jumper via Facebook. They’re of a Mandalorian (that’s Boba Fett’s race for those not in the know) armor that’s been given the ole Crye treatment. Great stuff Case! You can see more on his Facebook profile page, linked above.
First, they took his daughter…
Then, they took him and his wife….
Now, they’ve taken his wife…. permanently (like, they murdered her guys)!
And framed him for the murder!
And reused lines from the first one!
Now, he’s mad as hell, and won’t stop until his wife’s killer is brought to justice!
Liam Neeson in Tak3n!
In Theaters – January 9, 2015
Well, the Amigos enjoyed it well enough.
As for me, I wasn’t really into it. Without trying to spoil too much, April’s involvement in the turtles and Splinter’s origin is a poor attempt at linking them together, the CGI isn’t that good looking, and the Foot Clan aren’t even ninjas, just thugs with ARs and crappy masks.
Splinter learned Ninjitsu from a manual he found thrown away in the sewer, which he mastered and later taught to the turtles. He also somehow managed to obtain quality, authentic “ninja weapons” for them to use. My belief was suspended at that point (because talking turtles who also happen to be ninjas is a totally believable premise, right?).
The positives? The action scenes aren’t that bad, and I chuckled a few times at the admittedly lame jokes. It’s ok for the kids, but TMNT fans won’t find anything worth watching.
If you need a Turtle fix, go watch the 90s trilogy; even Turtles III is better.
Verdict: Wait for the home release, if at all.
It looks like they’ve slipped a Maxpedition Doppelduffel Adventure Bag into the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, as used by Will Arnett’s character. As it happens, I’m going with the Three Amigos to see it later on today, so I’ll post something on it after I get back.

In this video, Chris Pratt (Star Lord) goes over the on-set Milano, his space ship in the movie.
This piece by Chris Weston is a triptych of posters of the most memorable John Carpenter films staring Kurt Russell: Escape from New York, The Thing, and Big Trouble in Little China. Limited to a run of 120, the piece was produced under private commission for a Facebook group called “Poster Buddies and Traders”.
‘A Dame to Kill For’ is looking like a decent sequel to the first Sin City movie. Fair warning, the trailer is violent, and more importantly actually seems to spoil quite a bit.
Some shaky cam footage of a test film for a potential Deadpool movie was leaked a few days ago. It was pulled, but thankfully the powers that be decided to release the actual test film on the internet, and man is it great. Note two things:
1) This is a few years old, and was put together to try and sell a Deadpool movie to Fox. Thankfully, the buzz on this test footage has been pretty positive, so they may attempt to revitalize the project after all!
2) It’s 100% CGI, but it’s not likely that a full length theatrical release would be.
