Aliens Vs Predator Vs Terminator

So for some reason, a movie idea for Aliens Vs Predator Vs Terminator popped into my head a few months back and I can't get it out of there. I may end up posting some stuff about it on the ol' blog here.

In order to get your mind on it too, I'm posting some of the cooler Aliens/Predators/Terminator posters I found on my new best friend, Flickr. And yes, I know there was a comic about this a few years back but it apparently sucked. As did the second Aliens Vs Predator movie. But at least the poster is cool.

More Lost Episodes


Episode 5.13: Some Like It Hoth

Get the wordplay there? So our castaways are still stuck in Dharma Times, back in 1977. Sawyer's group, including Miles, have been members of the Dharma Initiative for about threeyears. Hurley, newly arrived, decides to write George Lucas' Star Wars masterpiece, The Empire Strikes Back. The episode in general is about Miles' life and his ability to "kinda talk" to the dead.

This episode immediately made me think of a TaunTaun toy on the beach.



What If Episode from Season 7, Henry Gale

When our castaways first meet the nefarious Ben Linus, leader of the Others, he is claiming to be one Henry Gale from Minnesota. His backstory is that he crashed on the Island while on a balloon ride. There was even a destroyed balloon on the Island, right where he said it was. The actual balloon ride was sponsored by our favorite fast food restaurant, Mr. Cluck's (hence the logo). Unfortunately, the real Henry Gale is not from the Wizard Of Oz, he's a dead and buried black man on the Island. Ben, being the bastard he is, proceeds to sow mistrust and everything bad that goes along with it. Somehow he survives torture, gunshot wounds, being made to dig your own grave and a massive amount of beatings throughout the series.

Epilogue: The New Man In Charge

So I purchased the brand-spankin' new Season 6 set yesterday at Best Buy. I went home, and while feasting on Grade D Delicious tacos from The Bell, watched the much-anticipated 20 minute Epilogue, The New Man in Charge. And it was awesome. On the series finale, Ben and Hurley are on the Island with Desmond while everybody else escapes death and/or abandonment. Hurley became the new Jacob as the Protector of the Island, and Ben became his number 2, an advisor. The epilogue opens up on a Dharma warehouse in Guam, where these two poor saps have been putting Dharma-products on a pallett to be air-dropped on the island. Ben comes to relieve them on their duties (since both Ben and Hurley are able to come and go from the Island, one assumes that Desmond has as well, rejoining his wife and kid). Ben shows them the Dharma Orientation video for the Hydra, explaining polar bears, Room 23, aliases, birth troubles, and a host of others. The Epilogue then takes us to Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute, where Hurley and Libby once stayed as patients. But who's there now? WAAAAALLLLTTT!!! Yes, Michael's son Walt. He was told he was special, the Others kidnapped him and let him go, and he left the Island, seemingly forgotten by all. But here is at a Mental Hospital, when Hurley and Ben told him he has work to do on the Island, to help his Dad. His Dad, by the way, is dead, but Hurley can see him, restless on the Island. This show probably could have done several more seasons with this as the premise, but it was not meant to be. It ended on a great note, by the way.

What If? Lost Season 7 Episode 8: Wallace



So I was inspired by this great but simple design over at Fro Design by Moses Lee about their fake Lost Season 7 and Wallace. So who is Wallace? Who the hell knows?


I'll let Lostpedia explain:

"Wallace is the surname of a person found on the dial in the lighthouse. He/she is listed as the number 108, but the name is crossed out. Jacob, through Hurley, gave Jack directions to turn the lighthouse compass bearing to 108, although Jacob in the end seemed to care little about the bearing itself and more about Jack learning of the lighthouse."

The number 108 is the combination of every one of the special numbers throughout the show: 4 + 8 + 15 + 16 + 23 + 42 = 108. The numbers and names on the lighthouse dial represents the different candidates that may take Jacob's place as the protector of the Island. Some of the names, like Shepard and Jarrah we know, but others like Thompson and Wallace we don't. Also, if the Swan Station's computer counted down to 108 and the numbers weren't entered, then you have a catastrophic event take place. Also, the episode "Lighthouse" was episode 108 of the series. Wallace may have been important since Jacob was originally going to have Hurley turn the lighthouse towards his numbers. But the dude's crossed out! He's no longer a candidate, but ghost Jacob did state that that didn't really matter if you wanted the job.


For some reason, people have been really excited about this mysterious "Wallace." He really latched on for just being a scratched-out name on a dial. Well, in my fake Season 7, Wallace gets his own damn episode!

WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB!!! 1-2-3-4!!!

Just saw Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Literally. Only got back a few hours ago, had some crappy Wendy's burger, and went on the ol' computer.

At first I wanted the whole soundtrack, but it seemed a little too indy-rock pretentious for me. I'll probably just get the individual songs that I liked. Most soundtracks sound better in the movie than the actual CD itself. Take Pump up the Volume. Great movie, the music was awesome, old Beastie Boys, old punk tunes. The soundtrack: sucked. It was all remaked versions of these great songs and they didn't even have permission to put the originals on the soundtrack.

But I digress. Scott Pilgrim was great!! Just like the graphic novels, down to the printed sound effects. Bassist and slacker Scott Pilgrim must defeat his new girlfriend Ramona's Seven Evil Exes (as it is brought up multiple times in the movie). It played like a video game, with coins, power-ups, etc. A lot of laugh-out-loud parts. Made me want to pick up a bass (guitar, not fish). First time I ever saw a Michael Cera movie in the theater--he usually plays the same character over and over again, but this time it works for him because he is Scott Pilgrim. Fun movie, a plot not to be taken seriously. I also like the posters a lot: Oh, hey here they are.

I'm gonna give you two versions of this great song only because I love to hear Allison Pill yell "We are Sex Bob-omb!" multiple times.

Word.


Thanks RK!


I'll be seeing Scott Pilgrim Vs The World soon. That and the Expendables. Oh, and this guy's eyes glow because he's a vegan. Probably the most exciting vegan ever.
