Lets face it: You’re probably not very excited about the new Terminator movie. And why should you be? The last two films were varying levels of bad, and this one doesn’t look much better. The marketing focuses on a much older-looking Arnold Schwarzenegger, who seems to be regurgitating catch phrases from decades past for what might seem to be nothing more than a paycheck. And maybe that works in Terminator Genisys‘ favor, as it is much easier to beat expectations when they are low.
I was pleasantly surprised by Terminator Genisys, and I think you will be too. So here is my (virtually) spoiler free Terminator Genisys reaction, giving you my thoughts and observations about the latest installment in the Terminator franchise. Read my Terminator Genisys review after the jump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s upcoming slate includes Terminator: Genisys and sequels to Conan the Barbarian and Twins, but don’t assume he’s content just retracing his old steps. He struck out for new territory with this summer’s Maggie, and now he’s heading into further in that direction with 478.
The dark revenge drama has a script by Javier Gullón, who wrote Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy, and will be produced by Darren Aronofsky‘s Protozoa. More on the Arnold Schwarzenegger 478 movie after the jump. Read More »
Walking on Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA, you see a lot of people dressed as famous movie characters. Jack Sparrow, Spider-Man, Batman, Optimus Prime, Willy Wonka and so many more are all walking around, hoping people take a photo with them for a small fee. Most of the costumes are terrible, but some are quite good. The team at Omaze used that fact to their advantage. They dressed Arnold Schwarzenegger up as his own character from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. In costume, Arnie walked around Hollywood Blvd. relatively unnoticed, and even posed as a wax sculpture in Madame Tussauds to scare the crap out of unsuspecting tourists.
The video is a way to raise awareness for a charity contest where the winner gets a trip to the premiere of Terminator Genisys, but it’s also just plain funny. Below, watch the Terminator Hollywood prank and find out more about the contest. Read More »

This weekend Melissa McCarthy enters secret agent territory as the unlikely hero Susan Cooper in the action comedy Spy. And while the trailers seem to indicate that she’s probably not the best woman for the job, she did get us thinking about the best spies in the business.
There have been plenty of spies on the big screen, from James Bond to Jason Bourne, and I decided to count down the Top 15 Best Movie Spies that we’ve seen throughout the years. However, you won’t find the likes of real-life spies whose life stories have been adapted for film. Instead, this is a collection of fictional spies from the movies. So with that out of the way, let’s count down the Top 15 Movies spies after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
One of the big promises in Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s revived career as an actor has been the idea that he would reprise the role of Conan the Barbarian. It’s one of the gigs that cemented him as an action star, and the 1982 film co-written (with Oliver Stone) and directed by John Milius is hailed as among the best adaptations of pulp novels ever committed to film.
The new film, which is being dubbed The Legend of Conan, has Fast and Furious scribe Chris Morgan as a writer and producer, and Morgan now proclaims that the new film is intended to be an intense adventure film that carries forward the tone and even some of the other characters from the 1982 movie.

Five character posters for Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys have just hit the web and they are so metal. Not “metal” in that rocking, awesome way though. I mean literally. Four of the five feature either a terminator, or a piece of a terminator, suggesting the July 1 release is going to be very, very heavy on the metal-to-metal action. Plus, we get to learn the name of the next evolution of Terminator tech. There was the T-800, the T-1000, everyone forgets about the T-X, but now we have the T-3000. Check out all the Terminator Genisys cast character posters below. Read More »
If nothing else, Maggie deserves credit for approaching zombies from a whole new angle. While the angst of watching a loved one get infected is a common trope of the genre, it is rarely if ever the main focus of a zombie movie. But as Maggie shows, it’s a premise with great potential. Unfortunately, Maggie also shows there are many ways to sell that potential short. Read More »
Back when Into the Woods star James Corden had his debut episode taking over The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson, he had Tom Hanks help kick things off with a bang by acting out the Oscar-winner’s entire filmography in less than seven minutes. It was quite the amusing bit, and now Corden is back with another Hollywood icon to do it all over again. This time it’s Terminator franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the pair does all his movies in six minutes. Read More »
