SmuttyCat loves hot cars and giant robots (but he is afraid of giant robots). So SmuttyCat is super smug these days. After all, Transformers 4 is filming in Detroit. There is a certain excitement to watch parts of your home city being demolished by invisible giant robots that can turn into cars. After all, if any city would have robots morphing into automobiles, it would be the automotive capital of the world, Detroit.
Speaking of cars, SmuttyCat is in the market for a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe and a 1200-horsepower Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse. Anyone know where he can get a deal?
Sadly, filming has moved on to the actual China, not the one built in downtown Detroit, but many fans were kind enough to post video of the time in the “D”. Enjoy the clips below courtesy of spectators on YouTube and let SmuttyCat know in the comments if you’ll be writing the Big Three to ask “when is my car going to save the world?”.
SmuttyCat has been looking for something to replace Leverage for a while now.
Finally NBC has come up with The Blacklist, a fast paced action/mystery/crime story with a twist. Call it Hannibal Lecter meets Die Hard.
Check out the trailer and let SmuttyCat know if you’ll be joining him on September 23. If nothing else, it’ll fill the time in until Arrow starts back up October 9.
The Marvel hits keep on coming with Thor: The Dark World arriving November 8 and the official trailer being released for Geek Week.
While Thor tries to fix all the problems created by Loki from the first Thor for the nine realms, along comes more trouble from before recorded history. Just what a hero needs, ultimate trouble. While Marvel has kept the exact nature of the threat under wraps, comic fans everywhere are speculating that it will be Malekith or Surtur, or possibly a combo. All we know is that the threat is “a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself” (Marvel press release).
No matter the villian, Thor: The Dark World has plenty of action, beautiful Asgard scenery and of course, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Jane lets Loki know her feelings on his attack of earth pretty clearly. Go Jane! In addition, Thor (Chris Helmsworth) has longer hair giving him more of the Norse god look than before. As if all those muscles needed accenting.
If you need more reasons to watch when it comes out, the video below says it all.
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014 and The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015, SmuttyCat may not get any sleep until 2016. Yawn, nap time right after another peek at The Wolverine.
This summer just doesn’t give SmuttyCat’s eyes a break. Last Friday there was the wonderful The Wolverine and today starts the weekend off with a giant bang from 2 Guns.
2 Guns features a pair up of Denzel Washington and Mark Whalberg. The two dance through numerous car crashes, explosions and some great puns and double-entendres. As a buddy cop movie goes, this is the most fun since MIB 1.
Bobby (Washington) and Stig (Whalberg) are undercover agents whose assignments unwittingly overlap leading to major mishaps and being cut off from their agencies. They have to team up even though they don’t like each other to beat the bad guys and get their reputations back.
No, this movie is not intellectual, it is good old fashioned summer mindless movie mania at it’s best. The stock plot line is refreshed with snappy dialog and great acting. Grab your popcorn and go now. Smutty will be at the matinee showing.
And SmuttyCat must say, never has yogurt been such a great gag object.
Thanks to Yahoo! Movies for the trailers.
