The CGI in this is off the chain:

Right on, Rihanna even looks good with short hair and a hat.  Not that I expected she wouldn’t have.

Basically this movie looks like what I imagine Transformers 4 will look like.

I usually end up watching this type of movie eventually, since the CGI is so impressive and the action is non stop.

Release Date: May 18, 2012

Anyone heading to the theater on opening night for this one?

haha so true.  I love how some people think if guns were gone the world would miraculously become a peaceful place.

How’s that working out for them in the gun control paradise known as California?  Oh not good… just the other day a deranged loser was able to do some target practice in a busy Hollywood intersection, taking a life in the process.

Either step your game up, or retire:

Skip to 50 seconds if you don’t want to hear someone say “lord” what seems like about 50 times in a lengthy prayer.

The video was filmed at the Knob Creek machine gun shoot this past fall.   Long time followers of this blog might remember that I’m not a fan of Steve Lee (see HERE and HERE).  Just when I thought the music and lyrics couldn’t get any worse, he pulls this preachy lil’ number out of his ass.

He looks like a small guy, but for the love of god lean into it when you’re shooting.  The recoil is making him its bitch so many times throughout the video…

Thoughts?

An updated pricier version of all the Green Army men from your youth:

Available over at Good Art HLYWD – $235 each, or $2400 for the 12 pc. set.  Probably a neat gift idea for someone that’s hard to buy for.

I wish they were bigger though!  The artist wanted to keep them true to the Vietnam era Marx & Co. green army men toys, so they are that exact size unfortunately.

Fireworks in broad daylight in Qatar:

Dubbed “Black Ceremony” this contemporary art is the work of Cai Guo-Qiang, a Chinese national based in New York City and the world’s foremost gunpowder artist.

They used anti-missile decoys used by the military to create the display.

Using 8,000 shells and two months of planning, the exhibit lasted a matter of minutes.

You know what likely would have been cooler?  If they did this at night so you saw the explosions, and then kept turning on massive floodlights aimed at the sky so you could see the colored smoke patterns.

Cooler yet: Rather than patterns, make shapes and spell words that the crowd can see.

Full Story and more pictures – HERE

Thoughts?
