  1. God damn, I just here Arby when he talks

  2. honestly, the only thing I found appealing in this movie was the soundtrack…
    the movie blew dogs for peso’s but the industrial/metal soundtrack was kick-ass.
    same thing for End Of Days, Scorpion King, Matrix (mostly 2&3, the first one was decent, and the soundtrack was great too. but 2&3 were lame as hell), and a fair amount of SPAWN (I say a fair amount, because I actually like the spawn movie… yeah, I know. guilty pleasure. don’t judge me… I CAN FELL YOU JUDGING!..)
    but anyway. for a fair while that’s been kind of a hint for me on sort of spotting a bad’ish movie (not a solid hint, of course, but I guess it’s more of “superstition feeling” more than “hint”) flicks like them (around that time-range), if the soundtrack was too good, or had a lot of popular band-names on the roster, high chances were that the movie was gonna be bad. I’m actually kind of glad that that “hinting” is fore most part gone now, but there are still some lingering flicks that are like that…

  3. Yeah well, Uwe Boll’s movies suck ass – everybody knows that by now. But why do critics always bring up his “tax loopholes” business strategy before anything else about the respective movie they’re reviewing is mentioned? As if he’s the only person in the film and TV industry who rips of the taxpayers? The only reason we have movie after movie that plays in the Midwest is “tax incentives”. Not even people from the Midwest themselves want to watch movies that are set there. The reason why Hollywood made one militaristic jerkfest after another in the 90s and 00s was because the Pentagon financed these and supplied military equipment and personnel for the “glory shots”. The only reason why “Breaking Bad” was set in New Mexico was… guess what? “Very good conditions offered by the state and the city of Albuquerque”.

    If you call out Uwe Boll, call out Ridley Scott, Vince Gilligan and every other producer/director in the industry who does exactly the same things behind the scenes, too.

    Did I mention that Uwe Boll’s movies suck ass? Giant, unwiped, diarrhoetic brontosaurus ass?
