Musings of the Last Raigeki
the-unpopular-opinions:

I honestly don’t want Arnold Schwarzenegger to return to doing franchise action films. He’s signed on to do Terminator: Genesis, and he has begun reprising the role of the T-800 CSM-101 again. Don’t get me wrong, Arnold is made the role of the Terminator a memorable one but I honestly think that he shouldn’t be doing another Sci-Fi action flick. The thing is with Terminator: Genesis is that they worked Arnold’s age to explain why the T-800 will appear old. As it turns out the flesh which allows the Terminator character to appear human ages, but not the machine itself. While the logical precedence is there and makes sense.. I really don’t like the idea of an old Terminator. Especially if it’s Arnold.
Also a lot of Predator fans want Arnold to reprise the role of Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer again for the potential sequel to the Robert Rodriguez reboot, PREDATORS (which was awful by the way) but anyone who’s read the June 2009 script which Michael Finch and Alex Litvak, and revisions overseen by Rodriguez knows that the character Dutch somehow winds up leading a clan of Predators.. First off, Dutch’s team had been slaughtered by just one low-ranking Hunter and he suffered some severe trauma from the experience, not to mention was treated for radiation sickness in a burn ward. Why would Dutch want to lead a clan of Predators? And another thing is, by the time another Predator movie is made— it will be sometime after Arnold is done with Terminator: Genesis and Terminator 6, another Conan movie, and Triplets.. Assuming he finishes those movies, Arnold would be in his 70’s. Do we really want to see a 70 year old man taking on a creature which handed his ass to him in his prime twenty seven years ago? I sure as hell for one wouldn’t. It wouldn’t be believable and ridiculous.
I get that Arnold is regarded as one of the best action heroes from the 80’s and the 90’s and he has made some of the characters in the films which he starred in some of the most memorable ones with some awesome one liners. But he is far past his prime now. Given that he’s had heart surgery years ago, I doubt that juicing at his age would be healthy and I doubt that he would ever be in the shape he was twenty or thirty years ago.
Sylvester Stallone is guilty of this too, and both Stallone and Arnold are two of my favorite actors since they were in movies which I really liked.. But they are just too old to be doing action films. What they need to do is take a page from Clint Eastwood’s book and learn an example from Gran Torino which was a sobered up film for someone of Eastwood’s age.
Really.. The Terminator franchise doesn’t need Arnold, and neither does the Predator franchise either. T-800s come in all shapes, sizes and colors. And we really don’t need to learn what happened to Dutch, the novelization of Predator 2 sort of explained what happened to him.
These franchises really don’t need to be and shouldn’t be dependent on Arnold. Especially at the age he is now.

Promoting my RP Blogs!

I know that I have interacted with numerous roleplay blogs via this particular one but really, this is not at all a roleplay blog. It was never meant to be a roleplay blog and it most definitely never will be. This blog was solely meant for me to post whatever catches my interest and possibly whatever thoughts I might want to share and informational news I happen to come across, be it about conspiracy theories and information.

However I do have four roleplay blogs ready to be roleplayed with.

My roleplay blogs are the following..

Philadelphia: City of Shadows — A Roleplaying Chatroom

image

Unusual things have been occurring within the Philadelphia area. Things unexpected, things which go bump in the night. There has been a rise of paranormal activity, sightings of creatures of folklore and myth have been reported. News reports of genetic aberrations and human experiments gone awry escaping from laboratories and cover-ups have been made. Crime has been at an all time rise in the midst of a power struggle between local gangs and criminal families.

Human potential has been awakened. Citizens choosing to either do incredible good or evil have established themselves as heroes and villains. The City of Philadelphia has become a stomping grounds for the supernatural and superhuman. Dimensional barriers between realms forgotten and the modern world have deteriorated, and there have been few crossed over between realms.

And to make things even more unusual… Unidentified Flying Objects and Extraterrestrials have been sighted in the city of Philadelphia.

Hero. Villain. Survivor. Predator. Prey.

What will you be?

An awesome Yamcha picture by BlackExcell. There isn’t a lot of Yamcha fan art out there that ISN’T yaoi but when good quality fan art does happen.. it’s something to be appreciated! So here is some appreciation for the lone wolf Z Fighter, Yamcha!

It’s all Good in the ‘Hood.

No not really.

The first version is the Winter Soldier version, and the second version is the ‘asshole’ version, where I am an insensitive prick and have the Bucky puppet falling from the train.

They are both available on shirts.

Bucky Barnes falling version (Iamsosorryomg)

please do not remove my watermark. Please do not steal and repost. thanks and hope you like!

My heart goes out to these aspiring little Judoka! They look like they’re playing more than having a serious competition, and they seem to be enjoying themselves all while partaking in martial arts!

This has to be the cutest thing involving martial arts I have ever seen!

Maria Hill by Devil-V
A commission done for me done by Devil-V. I had personally requested for a pin-up picture of SHIELD Director, Agent Hill in a two piece bikini. Surprisingly enough, the wait for the piece wasn’t long and Devil-V and I had worked closely to see this commission done right. And he didn’t disappoint.
I am aware that Agent Hill is often depicted as a woman whose attitude is definitely no-nonsense and she doesn’t take any bullshit from anyone. Not from the Avengers, not from the X-Men. Some might even see her as a bitch but she’s a woman who is just doing her job as Director of SHIELD. But who says Maria Hill can’t be sexy when she wants to be, or wants to have a vacation in Tahiti?
There are tons of pin-up works of the Avengers ladies, and even the X-Girls but finding pin-up work of Agent Hill? Well, hopefully this will change that.
Many thanks to Devil-V for creating this awesome piece!

Hulk-Alien
Let me first say that I did not create this custom figure of the Hulk-Alien here. I found it this image a few years ago online on a Custom Action Figures message board and I can’t remember the creature. What I do remember was that the figure was made and modified with an Abomination figure, a Kenner Gorilla-Alien figure and perhaps the Scorpion Alien figure.
There was also something of a story for this particular Xenomorph coming into existence. I don’t remember the story word for word but the storyline sort of tied into the Planet Hulk storyline but deviated at a certain point. Instead of crash landing on the world of Sakarr, he crash lands on LV-426 and discovers the Derelict and it’s deadly cargo while on an attempt to forage for food, but instead winds up being a host to a never before seen strain of Xenomorph. Thus, the Hulk-Alien was born.

the-unpopular-opinions:

I am sick of Frozen. Okay, okay, the movie wasn’t terrible. Great 3D animation, great acting, the movie is fine. It’s the attention and fandom that’s pissing me off. I know alot of people hate it when people bombard fandoms, but I can’t give two shits, so lets start with the fandom.
The fandom is ape shit. It’s the big bang, stuff just appeared every where all of a sudden. As some one who’s no where near the disney fandom, frozen shit flooded my dash. At first, it was fine. A joke here, a joke there. Then the fandom lost its shit, “oh you can just throw in diversity blah blah social justice” “Elsa is perf look at her hair anna suck shit lol”. The thing that probably bothers me the most is that everyone loved Elsa. Nothing against having preferred characters, but it feels like every person that loves her on this damn site is a passive-aggressive emo teen, trying to stand up for every wrong move Elsa made with those annoying over analyzed character analysis’. Trust me, I have experience working with family members and friends that suffer depression and try to isolate them selves (sorta like Elsa).  None of the have ‘magical ice powers’, but Elsa screws up alot. Obviously, this is for the sake of story, But it pisses me off when tumblr users zoom in on every frame in one scene to “capture Elsa’s pain and anguish blah blah blah”. I’m done. Calm the obsession down.
Next thing is the attention. Nothing much to say here, other than the fact that its ridiculous and biased. Top animated film box office, a billion awards, the list goes on. But the bias bothers me. I’ve scene great animated films, like the ones nominated for the oscars, but no one with watch them be cause frozen frozen frozen. I know theres North American bias, but theres tonnes of great films that critics should atleast poke at.
