Looks like he’s rocking the Glock this time.

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders Trailer

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

A 60’s Batman animation, complete with Adam West and Burt Ward reprising their roles as Batman and Robin, respectively. Genius!

Bravoflauge From Suicide Squad

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

You may have went to the theater to watch the new movie, “Suicide Squad”. Although it’s not prominently featured in the movie, you may have noticed an interesting camouflage pattern worn by the SEALs. Referred to as Bravoflauge, it was reportedly created by combining four different existing patterns.

According to SSD (and TFB) friend Spartan117GW, Vance and Brown may be introducing a cap on the pattern soon.

Justice League Trailer

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

For those who don’t know, San Diego Comic-Con 2016 ended today, and with SDCC comes a lot of comic, gaming, and movie news. And with movie news, comes movie trailers, including this one for the upcoming Justice League movie.

The trailer already seems to portray a slightly more lighthearted feel than Batman v Superman, which is a bit jarring compared to the later film, but it looks like it could be pretty fun.

Chewbacca Beer Cozy

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Makes me wonder what kind of beer chewbacca would be... a stout, perhaps?

Think Geek continues with their unique branded items with this Chewbacca beer cozy; they call it a can cooler, but it’s all the same. Regardless of your beverage choice, the Chewbacca cozy is sized for standard 12 oz cans, and features a rubber interior with a polyester exterior.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition Trailer

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

I actually liked Batman v Superman, despite some narrative flaws and a bit of weird editing; mostly I liked the action scenes, which were easily the best part of the film. Anyway, the Ultimate Edition is longer, R-rated, and is supposed to fix a bit of the pacing of the film, introducing scenes cut from the theatrical release which, at least a few of, are already in the trailer. I’m looking forward to it.

I really love practical effects in movies.

John Carpenter – “Escape From New York” Theme Official Studio Video

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

John Carpenter will soon be going on a worldwide tour with his band, playing some of his most memorable compositions from movies such as ‘Escape from New York’ and ‘The Fog’, as well as entirely new pieces. Sacred Bones Records released this video of a studio session of a new rendition of the ‘Escape from New York’ theme, which sounds pretty damn great. A link to tickets for the tour can be found below:

I just wanted to point out that is actually happening.

Stormtrooper Range Targets By theCrow65

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

IMG_1379

While Episode 6 proves that Stormtroopers are incapable of hitting an Ewok at any range, I still felt the above target, sent in as a tip from admin over at Soldier Systems Daily, was worth a post. However, it would be remiss of me not to try and figure out where it came from, since that info wasn’t provided. Luckily, a quick Google image search revealed that this, and other targets, are likely the work of Deviant Art user ‘theCrow65′, who didn’t just stop at Ewoks, but has an entire line of Stormtrooper targets, including Han, Leia, Tusken Raiders, and my personal favorite:

Do Yourself A Favor, And Go See Deadpool

Saturday, February 13th, 2016

In my opinion, Deadpool is probably the very best comic-to-movie transition yet released, and there has been some really good ones both before and currently with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a very hard ‘R’, but if that doesn’t bother you, it’s virtually a must-see.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice – Official Final Trailer

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Batfleck is kicking all kinds of ass in this trailer. I’m actually finally excited to see BvS when it comes out later this year.

Civil War Vs Apocalypse

Monday, February 8th, 2016

Of the two Marvel property movie trailers that aired during last night’s Super Bowl, which one was better?

New Suicide Squad Trailer

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

SHOT Show coverage will continue as expected, but since the new Suicide Squad trailer had to come out this week, I’m throwing it up before the show starts today. Honestly, this trailer makes the movie looks like solid fun.

10 Cloverfield Lane Trailer

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

As you might guess by the name, 10 Cloverfield Lane is the second movie in the Cloverfield franchise. With few details available, and the trailer not revealing much besides an underground bunker and a pissed-off, controlling, and possibly cabin feverish John Goodman (and two others), the question is:

Is this a direct sequel to Cloverfield, complete with giant monster(s), or a spiritual sequel with a similar premise?

We’ll have to wait until March 11th to find out.

Deadpool Red Band Trailer 2

Saturday, December 26th, 2015

It’s a trailer, so it’s meant to entice. Regardless, it looks like Fox is giving the Merc with a Mouth a much more comics-accurate portrayal than in Wolverine: Origins. Hopefully, when Deadpool comes out in February, it won’t suck.

Star Wars Launch Bay

Someone close to TFB recently attended the Star Wars Launch Bay attraction at Disneyworld Parks, and took plenty of pics for me to share with the masses.

Star Trek Reacts To Star Trek Beyond Trailer

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

Yeah, I kinda felt the same way. However, according to Simon Pegg, who co-wrote the film, the trailer isn’t really a good indicator of the tone of the film. I can buy that.

Nerdist – Kylo Ren Vs Santa Claus

Die Klapperschlange

Saturday, December 12th, 2015

IMG_9182

Die Klapperschlange or ‘The Rattlesnake’ is the alternative title for the German release of the 1981 John Carpenter classic ‘Escape from New York’, one of my favorite films of all time. I didn’t decide to post this poster for the trivia, but to bring attention to that rather unique rifle that Snake doesn’t get to use in the film proper (his primary arm in the film, for what it’s worth, is a suppressed MAC 10 outfitted with a rifle scope). It’s a bit difficult to determine exactly what model the rifle is, although if I had to guess it looks like some kind of AR variant with a unique pistol grip and a removed hand guard.

If anybody had more of a clue what it could be feel free to let me know in the comments section.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Trailer

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Predictably, they’re making a sequel to that Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot/remake/whatever. At least the original April from the 80s movies is going to be in it.

Uncanny Valley

UNCANNY VALLEY (2015) from 3DAR on Vimeo.

This short film by Federico Heller takes place in a grim future where Virtual Reality gaming isn’t quite what it seems.

Batman v Superman – Trailer 2 Fan Edit

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

The newest Batman v Superman trailer does a decent job of hyping up the movie, however it also spoils some crucial plot points, as most modern trailers do. In that regard, this fan trailer does a much better job of keeping the tone of the original Trailer 2 without the spoilers, so if you haven’t already watched the original, stick with this one.
