I came across this trailer on Friday, when it was released. I have to say, I am a huge Predator fan. I look the look of the creature, and the movies weren't all that bad (altough I never saw Aliens v. Predator: Requiem). The first movie was the best, and will always be the bar to set when sequels are made. The trailer doesn't look all that bad, although I don't think it will do that well in the theaters. The movie is due out on July 7, 2010.
This week's Music Video Monday is a fairly new one; by that I mean I just heard the song recently, while it was actually released in August 2009. This week's selection comes from the band Weezer.
Weezer is an alternative rock band formed in 1992, and has such hits as "Buddy Holly" "Undone - The Sweater Song" & "Island in the Sun". The band currently consists of Rivers Cuomo, Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.
This week's song selection is "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To", off of Weezer's newest album Raditude. It hit # 2 on the U.S. Billboard Alternative Songs chart, while placing # 3 on the U.S. Billboard Rock Songs Chart & # 81 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song has a cool beat; one that just makes you tap your feet, and snap your fingers to.
**Side Note - Is it me, or does Rivers Cuomo look like Rick Moranis from "Ghostbusters" and "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" fame? Just Askin'.....***
Billy Mitchell fans, don't have panic attacks, buuuut....
THERE'S A NEW "KING OF KONG" IN TOWN!!!
His name is Hank Chien, a 35-year-old plastic surgeon from Flushing, New York, who recently set the record to become the newest "King of Kong".
His score was 1,061,700 points, which tops Billy Mitchell's best recorded score of 1,050,200, who beat Steve Wiebe's best score of 1,049,100 to be the newest champion of Donkey Kong.
Wiebe and Mitchell were featured in 2007's "King of Kong", a documentary about the battle for Donkey Kong title supremecy. Billy Mitchell was the lone leader, until Steve Wiebe came along and snatched the title (briefly), until Mitchell took it back--until now.
Chien said that because of Twin Galaxies (the official score keeper and title decider) changing the rules for recording video game high scores, it was possible to try to go for the record. And he did it. On March 10th, it was announced that Hank Chien is the new undisputed champion of the Donkey Kong Game.
How long can Hank hold the title? Will Steve & Billy battle back to take the title again? Who knows, but it will be fun to see! (Me personally, I'm a "Wieber"; Go Steve Go!)

It's Back!!!!! The always popular Music Video Mondays!
And I have a request! Wahoo! I'm surprised I didn't post this video before, considering it is one of my all time favorite songs, but hey, because I have a request now, I can't say no! Thanks to Kelly for this request!
This week's selection is "We Built This City"; it's a song written by Bernie Taupin, Martin Page, Dennis Lambert, and Peter Wolf, and recorded by Starship and released as its debut single on August 30, 1985.
Surprisingly, it was listed as "the #1 Worst Song Ever" by Blender magazine in April 2004.
This is the trailer for the newest Shrek Movie. I have to admit, when I first heard yet another Shrek movie was being made, at first I was like, "WTF? Why can't they let that franchise go?" After seeing this trailer, the movie doesn't look all that bad. I could be wrong; it could be the best parts of the movie are in this trailer, but we'll see, I suppose. I just hope it's the last movie. Let the franchise go out on a high note, y'know?
Here is the newest trailer for the new "Toy Story 3" Movie. It looks really good, with the quality remaining what it is. And all the voices appear to be the same! Um, Disney, are you paying attention to this? This is what is supposed to happen with sequels.....
Back in the 80's, Disney made a movie called TRON. I never saw it, so I have no idea what it is about. It has a cult following though, so Disney decided to FINALLY make a sequel of this movie. Here is the trailer for the movie.
Well, here it is; the newest trailer for "Iron Man 2". It's pretty much the same scenes as the first one, except with some extended scenes. I hope it's just as good as the first one (the movie, not the trailer)!!!
**EDIT** Sorry about the awkwardness of this video; if I come across a better video, I will update this.
Here is the trailer for DC Entertainment's newest animated feature: Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. At first, I was kinda "blase" about it; but the more and more that I saw of it, the more and more I came around. I have always thought the DC animated universe should have a sense of consistency, especially when it comes to animation. DC Entertainment does takes bold moves to diversify and show range, although sometimes it doesn't work (Superman/Doomsday anyone?)
If the movies is as good as the trailer is, then great. If it's not, well, hey, at least the trailer was good, right?
