Popcorn Time – Basically Netflix For Free

Popcorn time has the same feel to it as Netflix and works relatively smoothly, streaming most of the movies you would like to see. But unlike Netflix it runs on the BitTorrent network so its pulling movies from unknown sources with no traceback to you. Popcorn Time has beta builds which run on Windows, Mac, & Linux, and the best part is that it very user friendly & has an intuitive user interface.

The service was killed off a little while back even though technically they didn’t store any movies, but as it was an open source program someone else picked up the mantle and brought Popcorn Time back to life.

“The YTS team will now be picking up the Popcorn Time project and continuing on like previously,” a developer told TorrentFreak. “We are in a better position copyright wise as for us, because it’s build on our API. It’s as if we have built another interface to our website.” Whether or not this new version of Popcorn Time will last longer than the original remains to be seen, but the team sounds confident it can keep things running. “It’s our vision at YTS that we see through projects like these and that just because they create a little stir in the public, it doesn’t mean they are shut down,” a YTS dev said.

Beyond Outrage – Trailer

As the police launch a full-scale crackdown on organized crime, it ignites a national yakuza struggle between the Sanno of the East and Hanabishi of the West. What started as an internal strife in Outrage has now become a nationwide war in Outrage Beyond.

I love Japanese Gangster Movies and this one looks to be like one hell of a movie. These are the types of movies that I love to see from Japan, the amount of Violence is just over the top and brutal and very real, they know how to make a gangster movies.

Up Coming Movie Trailers

ROBOCOP – The reboot is looking AMAZING, I have been a huge fan of Robocop watching it countless times when I was kid, he was the ultimate supercop. Now this reboot is coming and this trailer looks good, Alex Murphy is back as Robocop, and I’m liking the people in this movie and the twist on the story. The best thing is they didn’t change the OCP logo, got to love when they honor elements from the original 1987 movie.

I’ FRANKENSTEIN – From the creators of Underworld and the main character played by Eric Eckhart, I know I’m going to enjoy this movie and the trailer looks pretty damn good. Been a while since we have seen a good fantasy like this, I enjoyed the Underworld movies but the later ones were ridiculous, and I did love Van Helsing, this one looks to be better then them.

JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT – A reboot to the Tom Clancy character Jack Ryan, third time’s the charm played by Chris Pine, and this character was previously played by Alec Baldwin & Harrison Ford. Lets see how this plays out but I’m liking the espionage story, looks complex with lots of action, just what I like.

MACHETTE KILLS – Come on, this movie needs no introduction, if you loved the first one you will love this one. You can not mess with perfection

Batman & Superman – Ben Afleck.. Really?

Batman&Superman

Batman under Christoper Nolan & Christian Bale became an epic story of Batman, the true Dark Knight. It reached beyond the comic fans and across the globe, there is no one that didn’t love Batman over the past 8 years. Zach Snyder’s Superman was also a deep Superman movie, and I really like how he was portrayed in it by Henry Cavill. So the up coming mash up of Batman & Superman was extremely exciting news, and I was hoping Christian Bale would reprise his role as Batman, as I can’t picture anyone else doing it.

Now the shocking news that Ben Afleck is going to be the next Batman is nothing short of revolting, I got a gag reflex when I heard it, on the verge of throwing up from my disgust of him. He is an actor of his own right but NOT a superhero, doesn’t anyone remember Daredevil? I love comic movies and this I tried to love but to no avail, I was just utterly disappointed by it. I just really hope most of us comic fans are proved wrong and Ben Afleck does right by The Dark Knight.

Sideshow Collectibles – Pacific Rim

SideshowPacificRim01

Sideshow Collectibles are one of the Best creators of Models and Memorabilia out there. They create the best collectibles of our favorite characters and icons from the worlds of film, television, comic books and popular culture. There are other cool manufacturers out there, but not as good as Sideshow Collectibles. As for Comic-Con that is the biggest convention of Pop Culture in the world which takes place in San Diego, and in these pictures are the models for Pacific Rim which I loved. I usually try to get my hands on any Robot Memorabilia out there like Transformers, Reel Steel, and now Pacific Rim.

SideshowPacificRim02

Above is Gypsy Danger, one of the heroes of Pacific Rim, a Third Generation Jaeger meant to kick the Kaiju back to where they came from. The movie revolves around it’s main operator and it is one hell of a robot, and Sideshow made one very cool model of it, and its already available for PreOrder which I placed with AlterEgoComics. It’s rare to get such a high quality robot piece and this one looks to be one hell of a Jaeger just from the pictures at Comic-Con

SideshowPacificRim03

This was a surprise for me, another Jaeger, Striker Eureka, “the strongest and the fastest” Jaeger with 11 Kaiju kills, and make up the Resistance’s “go-to team”. It was one very cool looking Jaeger, and now that Sideshow has developed it into one very cool looking model I love it. It’s not up for PreOrder yet, but when it is, I am ordering it. The pair of Jaegers will look good together, and it will give me something to enjoy while I wait for Del Toro to come up with the sequel for Pacific Rim which revolves around Drifting. If you haven’t seen the movie, you should go see it.

Parkour, Cops, and Donuts

This is another video from Devin and its pretty fun, I love that he puts his friends in all the videos, and especially the big guy. This video is a bit different then his usual fun videos since in this case they incorporated a bit of the movie R.I.P.D into it which is pretty cool.

Check out the R.I.P.D trailer below, I still enjoy Ryan Reynolds movies.

A few movies came out this week that are going to be worth watching this weekend. There are a lot of blockbusters on this list, if you haven’t seen Olympus Has Fallen then you really have to watch it. There are a few unique and interesting movies on this list, the two that caught my eye were Syrup, a movie based on a book from my favorite author, and Trance, which looks like an interesting movie like Memento. And a few comedies thrown into the mix like Admission & Identity Thief, easy and funny for a laugh.
