Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me.

Movies to Watch: Apollo 18

This looks like it could possibly be a good movie.  As to why it keeps getting pushed back, I have no idea.  Maybe that's a government conspiracy as well.  According to it's You Tube page, "in 2011, the release date was pushed back to January 6, 2012.  Apollo 18 is currently scheduled for release on January 6, 2012. Originally scheduled for March 2011, the film's release date was moved three times during the year (to April 2011, January 2012, August 2011, then September 2, 2012)"

The trailer is pretty darn freaky, I actually liked it.  Supposedly the footage in the movie "was found," and is not theatrical makeup.  I don't know, it sounds kinda fishy to me.  Maybe Michele, here, can answer it for you. LOL.

Here's the description from the trailer's YouTube page:
Apollo 18 is a found footage-style film set in December 1974, about a post-Apollo 17 mission to the Moon that takes on a premise of why NASA discontinued the Apollo moon missions. The plot involves a government coverup of the Apollo 18 mission after parasitic lifeforms on the Moon discovered the crew and began to attack them. Much of the back-story remains unknown; however, the movie posters in English indicate the Russian KGB role in Soviet lunar conspiracy and the Russian movie posters show inscriptions in English suggesting an American government cover up in lunar conspiracy. In the trailer, an American astronaut finds a dead cosmonaut and a Soviet LK Lander on the lunar surface.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dimension Films head Bob Weinstein denied the film was a work of fiction, stating that "We didn't shoot anything, we found it. Found baby!". This claim was met with some skepticism. The film will be distributed by Dimension Films.

I thought this chart (infographic) was great and had to share it. Especially since I'm about to post the creepy trailer to Apollo 18.

Movies in Rewind: Green Lantern

If you were planning on seeing the Green Lantern, don't!  If you already saw it, I'm so sorry.

I would wait for it on Blu-ray or DVD.  Why?  Because you can do more with  your $8.50 ticket (if you're in Houston, TX), than spending it on a movie that was mediocre at best.

Yes, you get to see Ryan Reynold's buff body running and flying all over the place, but he was clothed in CGI for most of the film - 99 percent of it.  Sorry little gay boys, but you only catch Ryan half-naked, maybe twice.  While I'm not too familiar with the Green Lantern comics, word on the street is, the movie didn't do it justice.  I'll be honest, I would have rather spent my money watching Super 8 again, but I didn't dislike the movie either.  It had it's good moments and it's bad.

Here's the movie in two sentences or less.  Muscle alien drops from space, and before he dies, gives his ring to Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern, who says he doesn't deserve such an honor - and says it about 20 times throughout the movie.  At first he's afraid, then he's not, until he convinces the big kahunas in the sky, "we have nothing to fear, but fear itself," and heads down to kill this bad evil scientist with a big head, when he manages to kill a large cloud-like monster afterwards, The End.

Ryan and I didn't stay through the credits like we usually do, because our asses were hurting like hell in the cheap-ass theater we went to.  According to online sources, there was a clip in the credits that we missed.  Well guess what?  I have the ending right here after the jump.  Don't watch it if you don't want to be spoiled.

Movies to Watch: Immortals - The Latest Trailer

What's hotter than watching hot men with barely any clothes on fighting against each other? Nothing! LOL.   

Tarsem Singh's movie, Immortals has all the fantasies women often desire, the warriors men wish they could be, and the erotica to make every gay boy's dream come true.

Cover Wars 5

Cover Wars is going to be real interesting this time around...

There were so many covers to this song that I couldn't post every single one of them against each other.   So, because all of them were unique in their own way, I separated them into vocalist categories; Best Group, Best Male, Best Female, and Best Teen.  

Last Week's Winner
Each of the category winners will get a Cover Wars Gold Record that I will personally email them.  It's not an actual vinyl record, but a recognition award just for being on my blog, so your vote is really important. 

It was a difficult decision, but I chose the "best of the best" out of the videos below.  After listening to over 200 covers over the weekend, I chose 50 that I liked, and managed to get it down to 22.  At this point it was becoming really, really difficult, because I liked every one of them.  This morning I came up with the idea of making it a "win by category" issue, and once again, as hard as it was, I was able to bring it down to 10 covers.  I tried to bring the Group category down to two, but I couldn't.

The song being covered is "Grenade" by Bruno Mars.  I think that everyone who has ever dated, been in a relationship, or has been married can relate to this song.  The lyrics speak for themselves:
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked,
Cause what you don't understand is
I’d catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’d jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah , yeah)
You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
In order to vote, all you have to do is leave a comment, and paste the following into the message:

Group Category:
