    look at this stupid shit

    Sometimes I see something stupid I need to get it off my chest. Please feel free to list some stupid shit when you have a chance.

    First off there is the new Black Ops game. The first one had an interesting cold war theme. They apparently figured they would attract a bigger audience by pandering to morons.

    It really reminds me of Battleship, accept battleship is actually a fun game.

    //Rant Incoming

    The combat in this was entertaining, aside from the half-dozen times a soldier would have died but didn't and the shanty-town presentation of cartels that are a lot more wealthy, equipped, trained and professional than depicted. Not to mention the eye-roll inducing passionately classic patriotic-nostalgia-bullshit.
    Let's take a look at it from a practical point of view. What reason does a regularly deployed soldier have to start a family? Maybe it's because military men are archetypically jocks/animal culture fiends and therefore absolutely must have kids and proceed to disrespect them by putting their lives on the line just to be a perfectly heroic american father. Maybe i'm being a dick here and my taste is just too anal, but as far as i'm concerned, this was a movie with a lot of potential that ended up as a pile of what the fuck is this shit.

    Those war game trailers are becoming so ridiculous that soon they will be parody of themselves. The talk of the narrator was especially funny to me. Told with straight face and extremely serious voice - "We build computers...robots...and cybernetic dinosaurs that shoot lazers from their eyes..."

    As for the Act of Valor - I rarely watch action movies but I saw this one just for the military experience. I mostly focused the combat scenes which were done very well and turned brain off in the rest of the movie.

    It sounds nothing like him, but that "badass" voice has been the archetype of movie presentation/trailers for decades, all stemmed from Clint Eastwood.

    Not only did battleshit make a videogame, but apparently it's an FPS? An RTS would be obvious and might have a mechanic based on the boardgame, but naw kids don't wanna play no battle ship, they wanna play a fake COD.

    Oh yeah, that was a gorgeous! Everything should be teal and orange. Daft Punk's next music video should be shorter though, and have more Olivia Wilde. I didn't really get what the old guy was doing there.

    ...Oh. It was a movie?
