  1. Automotive Thread Quattro SpecV (the previous model) Time to roll out a new thread on car discussion. First off, this... The new Batmobile? Maybe. It's a concept design by a student at Munich University of Applied Sciences. In the Lamborghini tradition, the concept car is named "Ankonian", after a bull known for its black hair. Since Lamborghini has promoted its cars in the last two Batman films, perhaps the company should look at this design and use it for The Dark Knight Rises.

  2. The Iron Giant Warner Bros. Pictures, 1999 Directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) Executive Producer: Pete Townshend (the guy from The Who that used to destroy his guitars every night...) Based on the novel The Iron Man by the late Ted Hughes (1930-1998) Running Time: 86 minutes Rated PG for sci-fi violence. Cast Eli Marienthal (Stifler's brother in American Pie 1-2) as Hogarth Hughes Vin Diesel (Riddick, Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious) as The Iron Giant Jennifer Aniston (Tory in Leprechaun, Joanna in Office Space) as Annie Hughes Harry Connick, Jr. (Narrator in My Dog Skip, Jimmy in Independence Day) as Dean McCoppin Christopher McDonald (Jor-El in Superman: The Animated Series, Superman in Batman Beyond) as Kent Mansley John Mahoney (Marty in Frasier) as Gen. Rogard Synopsis In 1957, a mysterious object from space crashes on a stormy night off the coast of Maine. The next night, in the small town of Rockwell, a boy named Hogarth discovers the object as a giant robotic being with an appetite for metal and the ability to repair itself. He befriends the robot after saving it when it clumsily traps itself between power lines. Shortly afterward, Hogarth has the Giant stay at a junkyard run by a Beatnik named Dean. At the same time, Hogarth must keep the Giant's existence a secret from Mansley, a nosy government agent sent to investigate strange anomalies in the town. Story: A+ It's such a shame that this film flopped at the box office due to Warner Bros.' inability to properly market it, as this is how an American animated story should be told. The Iron Giant is a classic tale of boy-meets-alien. The Cold War-era works perfectly with the story, as well as the Giant's interaction with its surroundings and its struggle to differentiate good from evil. In addition, outstanding performances are given by the main cast. Yes - even by Vin Diesel, who still has yet to outdo his role as the Giant. Despite the film failing at the box office, director Brad Bird went on to find greater success in 2004 with Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles. Animation: A+ This is how a great American story should be animated. The Iron Giant displays some of the best examples of different forms of animation - old-style rotoscoping (which is much better than the style Don Bluth used to kill his career in Titan A.E.) for the human characters mixed with cel-shaded CGI for the Giant and various military vehicles. Soundtrack: A The film score by the late Michael Kamen (1948-2003) (Metallica's S&M live album, Pink Floyd's The Wall) is not as loud as his other theatrical works, but it works really well and doesn't detract from the storytelling. The Bottom Line Probably the last great American 2D animated theatrical release and undoubtedly one of the best sci-fi stories ever told. DVD Extras: A The Special Edition DVD is loaded with extras such as additional scenes cut from the film (in animated storyboard form, with commentary by director Bird), the full "Duck and Cover" song, numerous behind-the-scenes footage that's accessible in the middle of the film, a motion gallery and some trailers. There's also a mini-documentary featuring Vin Diesel - not that anyone cares, anyway. In addition, the DVD-ROM has some bonuses that may probably crash your computer.

  3. Fast & Furious 7 surprised everyone when it became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time last 2015, which obviously means an eighth installment is on its way. And a ninth. And a tenth. The world can't get enough of Dominic Toretto and his multi-cultural gang, who have grown from simple street racers to heist kings in a Mission: Impossible - Ocean's Eleven hybrid. http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/fast-and-furious/feature/a659184/fast-and-furious-8-9-10-vin-diesel-action-series-cast-release-date-cars-everything-you-need-to-know/
  4. Vin Diesel revisits yet another one of his old film franchises and gives us a sequel nobody asked for. xXx: Return of Xander Cage has him come out of hiding and reunite with Samuel L. Jackson to remind everyone that xXX: State of the Nation was not a thing. This will also be Revolution Studios' first film in over a decade. The film is set for release on January 20, 2017. What next - The Pacifier 2? Official Site Okay, so I spoke too soon... Vin Diesel Reveals The Pacifier Sequel Is Being Written
  5. Riddick is the third theatrical installment in The Chronicles of Riddick saga, following the 2000 sleeper hit Pitch Black and the 2004 flop The Chronicles of Riddick. As with the first two films, David Twohy will return to the director's chair for this film while Vin Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Richard B. Riddick. Karl Urban (Dredd, McCoy in the current Star Trek film series) will also reprise his role as Lord Vaako from the 2004 film. Joining the cast are Matthew Nable (Australian rugby player), Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica, Dana Walsh in 24), and former WWE Champion Dave Batista (Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy). Riddick is set for a September 6 release. Official Site
