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 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.
