John McClane is getting pretty old geeks. It’s hard to believe that 25 years ago we first heard the famous “Yippe ki yay mother F****r” spouted in defiance to the villainous Hans Gruber. Four films and every time we get excited when we feel his busted down, blown up, shot and bleeding ass close to popping off “Yippy ki yay”. Even when they tried to PG-13 it up with the fourth movie, thank the movie gods for unrated discs.
I for one have fond giddy memories of every, yes every, Die Hard film. John McClane will always be “that guy”, making us feel safer while popping a butt load of lead into the bad guys. It’s only fitting that he gets a new blu -ray set commemorating his quarter century in the pop culture spotlight. The set will include 5 discs of McClane goodness: all four films plus a fifth disc full of special features.
The DIe Hard 25th Anniversary Blu Ray set is scheduled to hit shelves on January 29th of next year. Hit the break to peep the full special features list!
Samuel L. Jackson in Arena, Full of Fail?

I love Samuel Jackson as an actor, for me, there is no one better at becoming a character and breathing life into it. From Pulp Fiction to Star Wars, we have seen good choices and bad choices but in every single movie the one shining spot is usually Mr. Jackson. So now I see the trailer for his new movie Arena and I am amazed as to why he would do this project. The trailers do not inspire me to want to race out and wait in line to see the movie; I don’t even know if I’ll watch it on Blu-Ray.
The film also stars Kellen Lutz (of Twilight fame) as a young man who is kidnapped and forced to fight in a modern gladiator arena. Jackson stars as the man behind the scenes that makes the whole show go. The gladiators fight online for viewers who will ultimately decide their fate-to live or die. Check out the trailer after the break!
Geeky Movie Review: “Cowboys and Aliens”
Last Updated on Saturday, 30 July 2011 06:16 Written by biggybox Saturday, 30 July 2011 07:00
If you have ever wanted to see a western and add the element of aliens then “Cowboys and Aliens” is the movie for you. The movie title sums up what it’s all about. However director John Favreau takes this movie and turns it into a crowd pleaser in all the right ways. All you need is a little Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, and some clever writing and you have a great summer blockbuster. The movie is actually a distilled spin-off from a comic book by Scott Mitchell Rosenburg. With a ton of writers and co-directors they were able to expand the comic world into an exciting cinema experience.
I loved every western cliche brought to the table in this flick. Everything from the mild mannered bartender who’s also a doctor, and doesn’t know how to shoot,but in the end does something heroic. To the bratty kid of a wealthy entrepreneur who thinks he can get away with anything, including shooting up the town. The surrogate, wide eyed boy, who you think at one point might cry out for Shane, and takes a liking to the faithful mutt that follows Craig’s character from the beginning. The gun totting preacher who has all the right words of encouragement. I mean this movie had every western cliche you could think of, and it was awesome.
Geeky Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2

After ten years, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2″ is sending the beloved series out with a big bang. Reviews that leaked out earlier in the week pegged the movie as being the best “Harry Potter” movie ever. Now that the finale has hit the theaters, what are we supposed to do?
Instead of waiting in line for hours last night to catch a midnight showing, I got a good night sleep and went first thing this morning. My first impression of the final chapter and epic battle of Harry Potter vs. “The one who shall not be named” brings a tear to thine eye. I’m so going to miss waiting for the next movie to come out. This was by far the best Harry Potter film yet. They took all the dark thrilling side of the story, the enchanting adventure side of the story, the SAPPY side of the story and mashed it all up into one great flick. The film culminates the last ten years we’ve seen Harry Potter and friends grow up. Which has made this film series a one of a kind. Following Ratcliffe, Grint and Watson as they aged in real life to the way they aged through the movie chronicles, it’s never been done before. Read on for more…
