Rocky Balboa, a 60 year-old actor getting the crap beaten out of him by an actual world champion; like hell I would miss that.
Since it’s a bit of a slow news day here’s something I thought might get a giggle out of you. A sketch from a recent episode of MadTV about an R&B singing gamer.

Stone Sour has emerged on the music scene silently and swiftly, but their music is far from subtle. Coming from their debut album expecting no critical acclamation, Stone Sour’s latest serving “Come What(ever) May” has got people talking. With the talent of Corey Taylor (vocals), James Root (guitar), Josh Rand (guitar), Shawn Economaki (bass), and Roy Mayorga (drums), Stone Sour has established themselves quite firmly in the nu-metal genre, with the main goal of serving up no bullshit rock’n’roll music to the hungry metal fans.
The album has a diverse compilation of acoustic and rib crushing metal tracks. The album starts of with the track “30/30-150”, a heavy song that defines the Stone Sour sound, and explores the issue of music scene today, the almost dead industry of no talent music. Corey Taylor blends the harsh vocals of Slipknot and creates a vast vocal plane that sets up the album. Track 2, “Come What(ever) May” is a political protest against the president of the United States, undoubtedly George W Bush, where the lines “what the fuck is free about it?” add a fine touch to the song. Track no.8 “Through Glass” shows the emotional side of Corey Taylor, something he couldn’t write for Slipknot. With its unforgettable melody and chorus it leaves you singing it in your head for weeks on end. The song “Cardiff” really shines the bands talent with elements of old school metal incorporated in the track. The creeping melody of the verse and thunderous chorus play with your head, leaving you awed. The final track “Zzyxz rd” shows the deeper side of Corey’s lyrical writing, a direct relation to “Through Glass”, another catchy song lies subliminally in your mind.
The band succeeds in their goal for bringing pure rock music to the mainstream. With all the crap on today charts and TV programs *cough*MTV*cough*. We are in need of a band like Stone Sour to set everything straight. “The intensity, The drama, The emotion, The colours, The darkness, The melodies, The anger, The honesty, The drive, The new, All of the above and more.” Is what Corey describes the album and I couldn’t agree more. This album is a great addition to anyone’s music collection and should be picked up some time or another.

Looks like Leonardo DiCaprio is a golden boy this year as he is currently starring in Martin Scorsese new crime/drama The Departed which has been praised by critics, premiering 12th Oct in Australia, and he also has another highly anticipated film premiering 15th Dec in the U.S; Blood Diamond.
Blood Diamond is set in the 1990’s in war torn Sierra Leone, and follows South African mercenary Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio; sporting a pretty good South African accent) and Mende fisherman Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) as they search for a rare diamond.
Check out the trailer here.
The new trailer for the Nicolas Cage starring Ghost Rider is out and I can’t help but get horrific Spawn flashbacks, no this movie probably won’t be that bad but something about it just doesn’t seem right; it could be the shotty flaming skull effects or that for some unimaginable reason that fat bitch Toula from Fat Pizza is in it. Apart from those things the movie doesn’t actually look to bad and I hope it’s not because Cage’s last movie The Wicker Man blew hard.
Currently only a rumour but quite possible is that the head terrorist for the upcoming Live Free or Die Hard is to be played by Jeffrey Wright (Syriana, The Manchurian Candidate).
Fox chairman Tom Rothman recently said that the films villain would be announced within a couple of weeks, so we should find out if this rumour is true or not, very soon.
Jeffrey Wright can next be seen in the upcoming Bond movie Casino Royal, premiering November 17th in the U.S and December 7th in Australia.
Some short animated story board clips of the highly anticipated The Simpsons Movie have been leaked thanks to lookout83. Normally I don’t watch clips of movies apart from the trailers as I hate to have the movie ruined because of it, but I knew some of you might be interested so I took a peak and thankfully they don’t give much away.
Each clip only goes for a minute and they might not even be in the final cut of the film; the first clip even includes a little intro that won’t be in the finished film.
If you haven’t already seen it check out the previously released teaser trailer.
Eddie Murphy’s back! Ok so he’s not doing Beverely Hills Cop 4 but at least he’s not doing a stupid Disney movie. Eddie’s new movie Norbit is going back to his Nutty days as he will be playing most of the main characters himself.
Norbit follows the life of Norbit (Murphy) as he is raised by a Chinese restaurant owner, Mr Wong (Murphy), and grows up to be bullied into marriage by the massive blob of a woman Rasputia (Murphy). Norbit’s miserable life takes a positive turn when his childhood sweetheart, Kate (Thandie Newton), moves back into the neighbourhood.
I admit this trailer did make me giggle a little but mostly due to Mr Wong and Norbit; I can see the Rasputia fat jokes getting old quick.
Check out the trailer at the official site.
