‘[REC 4]: Apocalpyse’ is Coming and Looks Bad Ass [Video]

A few years ago, you might have seen a pretty cool movie called, "Quarantine", with Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter's TV sister), where she followed some firefighters into a building that's, well, quarantined.  

It's a pretty cool flick, but the movie it's adapted from is kick ass.

It's called "". It's a Spanish language movie, but is more brutal, and scary than the American version.

Have You Ever Played with a Ouija Board?

There's a new movie coming out, going back to the old "Ouija board summons evil crap" storyline. It's just called Ouija.  

Remember Witchboard? This looks sort of like that.

Have you ever done the whole Ouija thing? I mean, seriously?

I tried it at the last radio station I worked for, since there have been tons of reports of ghosts in the station building.

Some Geeks Have Way Too Much Time on Their Hands

I will admit to being a geek about some things.  Not as crazy as Metalhead Ned is about gaming and KISS, but I do have my obsessions.  (No, YouPorn is not one of them, shut it.)

But some people take their obsession with getting deeper into movies and TV a little bit too far.
Example 1:
The Hollywood Reporter contacted a disaster-cost prediction company to assess the damage done to Manhattan during The Avengers movie.

No even kidding.

Oh, the '80s. It was a glorious decade.

Check Out These Guys Rendering CGI Action in Real-Time for Movies [Video]

It used to take weeks and months to make CGI characters look and move like real people for movies, but now technology is getting so good and powerful that a lot can be done in real time.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Wants Us to Get to the Choppa – On QVC?

I'm really excited about the new Arnold movie coming out this weekend, Sabotage.  There's a bad-ass red band trailer you can check out, that takes you back to the old days when Arnold was kicking ass and blowing up everyone.

This is what I like from Arnold, and now that he's not in public office anymore, he's gone back full-bore into movies.

Anyone Else Remember This From Middle School?

I am so geeked.  I remember it like yesterday, Mrs Dalecki's 7th grade english class we had to read, The Giver, by Lois Lowry. I think I remember it because whenever we "had" to read a book in class I automatically shut off. I love to read but when I was told I had to in class I was on to spark notes and barely a chapter through the book when I was supposed to be finished.

The First Really Scary Movie of 2014 Could Be “Haunt” – Check Out the Movie Trailer[Video]

I love me some scary movies! If given a choice of things to see, my first pick will almost always be the scariest movie showing. A lot of times I'm disappointed with what I call the "Hollywood Ending" that most movies give. They like to wrap it all up with some unbelievable schlock that almost ruins the rest of the movie.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Kills Things and Swears a Lot in the Red Band Trailer for ‘Sabotage’ [Video]

Ever since Arnold Schwarzenegger decided it was time to hang up the governor's suit and get back to movies, he's been appearing in some cool flicks, including all three Expendables movies (yes, they're releasing a third one), another Sylvester Stallone flick called Escape Plan, and his return to cop action with The Last Stand.

Now, he's bringing back his '80s hardcore action style, and mixing it with modern day gritty action and violence to bring us, "Sabotage!"
