Creepy Abandoned Hotels

https://youtu.be/O8xRsZCr4T8?list=TLGGrjPuiLhtnQkyNjA4MjAxNw

Igloo City is my favorite one on the list.  Yes I have a soft spot in my heart for Alaska, I think it’s one of the most exotic ones because of it’s weird look.  It also looks like it was just abandoned.  Some of the others in the list are truly abandoned, and look like they’re about to fall down and that’s what makes them creepy.  This giant igloo in the middle of Alaska, that’s creepy.

The Land of The Free

top 19

America, the greatest country that ever existed.  Although much of the rest of the world doesn’t really think so.  Well, Fraser Nelson of The Spectator has done his own original research and determined that American ain’t half bad.  In fact, in ranking the 50 states for each one’s GDP per capita, most European nations don’t make the cut.  In fact the first one to make the list is Norway, at #8.  The UK comes in at 2nd to last, behind only Mississippi.

Now, let’s listen to Ron Swanson and see what he has to say about America, and life in general:

I Like Michael Bay

Alot.  His movies, while completely unrealistic, and less then Oscar worthy acting, and with unnecessary explosions, are enjoyable.  Damn enjoyable. (except Pearl Harbor).  But I can’t stand all this hate towards him.  And most of the hate is coming from people who spend their good money to go see his movie just so they can make fun of it.  I’ll be the first to admit that his movies are ridiculous.  But I’ll also be the first to point out that I do not go to see his movies to get an accurate portrayal of anything. I go to be entertained for the better part of 2 hours (All his movies are long).

Any Hootie and the Blowfish, this is what started this conversation:

I wouldn’t quite put “Visionary Directory” and Michael Bay in the same sentence.  But it does have the markings of a Michael Bay film.  I would like to make a few ammentments to it.

Where’s the hot girl?  There needs to be a main character that’s female and is “the most beautiful woman on the planet”

Not enough CGI.  Granted, I’ll chalk that up to this being a low budget trailer.  But in any true Michael Bay film, those birds would be CGI.  And probably have lasers and stuff on them.  And I don’t care what the game is about, they would all explode on impact.  Following the source material is not a requirement for Michael Bay, it’s an overlooked afterthought.

I really like the fake Dark Knight script he wrote, that was a good Michael Bay experience.

Also this past week this List Appeared on Listverse.  I used to like Listverse, then it’s success went to it’s head it it soon started chruning out useless stupid lists, and way, way too many ads, but whatever, that’s what Google Reader is for.

Michael Bay has two films on that list, now granted, any list of “the worst” is gonna be subjective, but unless the topic is “worst science in a movie” to include Armageddon on the same list as 2012, and The Day After Tomorrow is just plain wrong.  You all know my feelings toward Armageddon, I consider it one of the best action films ever made.  I know the science is all fake, but you know what.  This movie is not played on The Discovery Channel for a reason.  So take a step back and try and figure out what it is you’re watching before you start to bash it.

Anyway, that’s my Michael Bay rant, I hope you enjoyed it and don’t think less of me as a person.  And, if you do, I probably don’t really care that much either.

The History of the universe based on Movies

Ever wondered what happened in the year 4 Billion B.C?  Well according to 2001 a Space Odyssey, Aliens left a monolith on Earth.

Did you know that in 35,000 B.C. two cavemen in Texas met an alien in their ice cave, at least that’s what The X-Files says.

Then every 100 years for the next 3000 years starting around 3000 B.C. on October 10 the “Predators arrive for their feasting ritual on xenomorphs and humans”

Then it’s pretty much history till 993 when Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is founded.  Some more history with bits and pieces of fiction thrown in.  And in 3028 the Drej destroy the planet – Titan A.E.

All this and more is available at this extensive list of movie history.  The time line starts in the beginning, and goes to the year 800,000.  It must have taken forever to put together, and it’s really a well done list.  You kinda get annoyed with the constant repetition of the Predators part, but that’s forgivable, since it’s such an all encompassing list.

Best Movie Death

So I stumbled to this little DIY movie Death scene battle.  I like it.  Above you can find my brackets for which scene wins which battle.  I’ll cut to the chase here:

Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber falling from the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Building is clearly the best death in my opinion.  His face alone gets him the title, look at it:

Now, for those who think I am wrong in every letter of the word, click below and you can hear my reasoning.  But I warn you, you probably won’t like it.
