Military

This looks like it will be interesting:

From the description:

Just out of high school, at the age of 18, Miles Lagoze enlisted in the Marine Corps. He was deployed to Afghanistan where he served as Combat Camera — his unit’s official videographer, tasked with shooting and editing footage for the Corps’ recruiting purposes and historical initiatives. But upon discharging, Lagoze took all the footage he and his fellow cameramen shot, and he assembled quite simply the very documentary the Corps does not want you to see. COMBAT OBSCURA is a groundbreaking look at daily life in a war zone as told by the Marines themselves. More than a mere compilation of violence, the edit ingeniously repurposes the original footage to reveal the intensity and paradoxes of an ambiguous war from an unvarnished perspective.

You can check out the website for more info.  Coming to theaters, streaming, and bluray on March 15th.

I really liked Generation Kill (which was based on a true story), and this looks similar so I’m sure it will be good.

Wirty Dhore is “unique”, I’ll say that.  What a dumpster fire:

Man I love how that guy just does shit to do it.  He doesn’t want fame, your approval, or give a shit about subscribers or anything else.  He has a camera, a YouTube account, and an imagination, a sense of humor, and that’s that.  That paint job is so mesmerizing.  I respect the fact he showed the wheelbarrow love too.

He’s definitely one of my favorite contemporary artists.  If I had connections in the art world, I guarantee I’d have rich bastards and their wives standing around at the MOMA viewing a supercut of Wirty Dhore videos projected onto white trash bags pondering what the meaning behind it was, and contemplating the juxtaposition between creating art and having the power to destroy with a gun.  Shit, I got goosebumps when I wrote that, it was good.  I get so gassed up sometimes you’ll have to forgive me fellas.

Mehhhhhhhhh:

Well I guess we can’t say the idea is “unoriginal”, so at least it has that going for it. *shrug*

Thoughts?  You putting this on the must-see list?

From the guys at Corridor Digital:

Looks entertaining, plus the realism looks great.  I’ll watch it if I can without downloading that stupid “go90” app they are trying to push… I’m not interested in that I can assure you.  I get it, there is potentially lots of extra money if you don’t use YouTube, but it’s seriously a major pain in the ass for everyone so if you ask me that’s quite the cost (inconveniencing and irritating your audience).

This looks damn good.  Based on a true story as well:

Based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the WWII mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution and the Reich’s third in command after Hitler and Himmler.

Anthropoid-Movie-PosterYea I’ll see this.  I’m always down for a good WWII related movie (UPDATE: I was just schooled that it was the cold war in the movie).  The last good one I remember seeing lately was Bridge of Spies.

Thoughts?  Is it on your list as well?

In theaters August 12, 2016.

hahaha, what the hell?  The Lonely Island with a surprisingly catchy banger:

Lonely-Island-Bin-Laden-SongSo good, yet so bad at the same time.

Thoughts?  Is Bin Laden ACTUALLY dead?  You buying that respectful “at sea burial”? Did you spot him at an Arby’s recently?
