I could just be the stupidest person in the world but this looks like a hell of a lot of fun. I can watch 'The Rock' in these kinds of roles all day long. He was great is the latest 'Fast and the Furious' movie which you also need to watch if you are any kind of a fan of action films.
I think these hokey character posters are pretty terrific too. They could have looked like an ad for the latest 'Spy Kids' movie but somehow avoid that tag. I have seen every possible marketing strategy for a movie that is out there. These posters are nothing fresh or new but you can't convince my brain of that which is a delightful thing for me to experience. This movie makes me feel like I am ten again and I so hope I feel the same way after leaving the theatre.
I also wanted to mention the use of 3D in this film. It looks to me like they decided to go 'full retard' on the effects and it shows. THIS is the kind of movie that you make with 3D technology.
Add it all together and you've got something really special.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
