Who the F is Scarlet? (More like what the F)


Tell you right now that Scarlet...is no one. That's right. It's all a joke perpetrated by LG. Not a joke really, but more of an ad ploy for their new line of LCD TVs: The Scarlet. Gorgeous Natassia Malthe (of Bloodrayne 2 and Skinwalkers fame), stars as Scarlet, the woman with a secret.

I remember I first saw an ad in a magazine and became interested enough to check out the website. The site appeared genuine, but the one thing that stood out was the fact that there was no network for the show. After one figures that out. It's kinda easy to see that it's a trick. Once you know it's a trick, you feel like an idiot because of the way the trailer laughs in your face:

I guess this type of stuff is now becoming a trend with Cloverfield and everything, but dammit if it isn't already getting old.

Wish it was a TV show, looked kinda good.

Uwe Boll Vs. Micheal Bay

God knows I'm not the biggest Michael Bay fan, for starters he's probably a paid employee of Fony (Sony) and most of his movies are cliche and OVERRATED. His movies tend to appeal to the younger and/or dumber demographic. On top of that, this guy has the biggest ego I've ever seen...yes even bigger than Kanye West.

Uwe (pronounced Ooo-va) Boll isn't exactly my favorite director either. He has produced and filmed tons of crap like the "House of The Dead", "Postal", and "Blood Rayne" in comparison to Bay, Boll simply SUCKS... for years i have been an enemy to any thing of Boll does, but getting the chance to see some of the worst sap suckers kill each other on PPV? I'd pay unseen amounts for that, right down to selling all of my valued possessions...including my unborn child. but be aware Uwe's no chump, he kicked the ass of some of his critics. What really gets me is the fact that this man has a doctorate. Not for movies though.

Various time wasting video crap below. ENJOY.

Learn to say Uwe Boll's name, I thought it was yooou-eeee Boll.

This is the crap Boll makes...

Yooou-weee responds to his online petition

Yooou-weee on movies he both hates and likes (he has some good points. Too bad he doesn't listen to himself).

Bay's corny commercial about blowing things up (his usual formula) to sell ass movies to the numb and or dumb crowd...

a montage of Bay's bigotry in his movies, you know the black guy who is loud and only uses the words mother and fucker, not to mention the countless puns to any and every minority.

Also Micheal Bay speaks of his involve ment in the Halo and Gears of War Movies

GTA VI:Video/Meta review

here is the first video review of GTA VI, also some Metacritic love enjoy. shout out to Metacritic.com, and Gametrailers.com [they have lots of game play videos to enjoy].

With GTA getting 100's all across the board is there any need to ask the point-less question "DOES IT LIVE UP TO THE HYPE?"

I could go on and on about why Grand Theft Auto IV is one of the best games we've ever seen and why even folks who are easily offended should play it, but that would be pointless. The only thing you need to know is that you have to play this game. Period.

None of these little flaws take away from Liberty City's breathtaking vistas, incredibly varied scenery, and lived-in look (the PS3 version has the slightest visual edge, plus motion-control support -- but then it's missing Achievements and the eventual downloadable episodes exclusive to the 360 game). The city just feels alive.

Almost everything you do in Liberty City would be good enough to drive its own game, and the best parts would be good enough to outrun the competition, but the reason it works so well is that Rockstar has made a game that requires no patience to play. This, as much as its usual coherency and the best script in the series, is what makes GTA IV the best openworld game yet, and why it will take something miraculous to rob it of game of the year status.

The very nature of the American Dream is the central theme in Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV, a gaming masterpiece that is a picture-perfect snapshot of the underworld of today's big cities. This is not only the finest title of the generation thus far, it is one of the best games of all-time.

100-Team Xbox
It's amazing that a sequel that keeps the core gameplay concepts of its prior incarnations can do so much to change itself into something new. Cabs are awesome, as is the cellphones capabilities. But perhaps the biggest innovation is the notion that you can create a game that's as valid a piece of art as any book or movie. Is this our "Citizen Kane" moment?

100-Game Informer
I now know how film critics felt after screening "The Godfather." It's been days since Grand Theft Auto IV's credits rolled, yet I can't seem to construct a coherent thought without my mind wandering off into a daydream about the game. I just want to drop everything in my life so I can play it again. Experience it again. Live it again...Grand Theft Auto IV doesn't just raise the bar for the storied franchise; it completely changes the landscape of gaming.

Grand Theft Auto IV lives up to its grand expectations by weaving a Hollywood-ready "American Dream" plotline with a finely-tuned game experience -- taking the tried-and-true GTA formula and plugging it into a living, breathing version of Liberty City.

GTA VI [or better know to right wing conservatives Grand Theft Auto VI]

With GTA4 lurking in the very near future [April 29th], i decided to post on it being that i have been a GTA fan since day 1. And i dont use that term lightly, i mean since the very first game came out, my name SHAWN STEWART was written on the page as pre-order.

I first became acquainted with the game and its dubious features from an ad in a video game magazine [back in those days i wasn't allowed to use the Internet(hey i had good god fearing parents)] i knew that i would want that game on the Sony "Playstation". Once i got it the game blew me and my friends away, we soon became FIENDS for any game Rockstar made, and they made a slew of GTA games from GTA:London, to GTA2 we were hooked.

Needless to say I'm still stuck like a junkie waiting for my next fix, and I'm not the only one by the looks of it, five days and counting until i can run my native NEW YORK city [aka Liberty City], run as in stealing cars, shooting innocent people and causing general ruckus with my friends and family on XBOX Live. so in honor of GTA VI I'm posting a few new ***Spoiler*** vids below.
In The Details: its also important to know the Xbox 360 version of GTA4 will receive exclusive DLC [Downloadable Content] in two installments, which creator Sam Houser said will be "Very Substantial"
Additional Content: seems that pirates who have ripped the game since yesterday are also recommending a purchase of this game [the irony].
Retailers are also preparing for GTA: Best Buy and Wal-Mart already have a plan in place, looks like Chicago has no love for GTA since they decided to ban the ads in transit, the same cant be said for NY, LA, not to mention Rockstar has also announced a website The Rockstar Social Club, devoted to tracking all of you're in game antics, Also Best Buy is offering a $50 gift card with purchase of GTA4 and an Xbox 360, also if you are lucky enough to live in Canada Best Buy is giving away five GTA designed Xbox 360 Elites to the first 100 gamers who wait in line at the select Best Buy locations you will be entered to win various Grand Theft Auto IV based prizes, including the exclusive console, also before i forget check out the special edition which features an art book, game, soundtrack, duffel bag, and lock box to boot.

Things We Missed: Cloverfield

Their is always something to be said about a movie that parades as one thing, but its true intentions are another. In recent memory has been to big movies that come to mind, Cloverfield and The Village. While The Village posed as a Thriller/Horror it was really a look at humanity, Cloverfield comes to us a Big Monster/Love Story movie, but also has an erie 911 undertone written all over it.

Since i didn't get the chance to gush my love for Cloverfield when it was in the theatres allow me to do so now, with the recent DVD release on April 22 which features two new endings, i cant wait. this movie blew me away who knew that a great producer (JJ Abrams aka Lost creator)/writer (Drew Goddard who reportedly played FOBs Infinity on High in the background while writing this movie and has admitted that much of the film is inspired by the album, although the scenes and songs do not match up)/director (Matt Reeves), and great casting [not to mention the graphics team] could take a $30million budget and make it look like 100, the blair witch meets college art project film type, coupled with often funny dialog, mixed with the over the top story boarding can make a movie so epic in proportion but so small in budget? SIMPLY PUT CLOVERFIELD IS A MUST BUY ON DVD? and or BLU-RAY [sic] (we miss you HD-DVD)
