Happy Halloween 2011

Happy Halloween from The Last Stand 

Top 5: Friday The 13th Death Scenes

Halloween is upon us already. I figure I will do the Top 5 best death scenes from multiple horror slasher franchises in history, or at least the ones I've seen. This Top 5 will feature Friday The 13th.

Friday The 13th is a very prominent slasher series that is most notable in the 80's. The series features hockey masked killer Jason Voorhees as a giant unkillable beast that kills random groups of kids at a camp called Camp Crystal Lake. The series does have some very notable actors including Kevin Bacon, Corey Feldman, Chrispin Glover and a few others.

Kill #5 - Arrow Though Neck (Friday The 13th)

Kill #4 - EyeBall Popout (Friday The 13th 3D)

Kill #3 - Liquid Nitrogen Headache (Jason X)

Kill #2 - Fold-Up Bed (Freddy Vs. Jason)

Kill #1 - Sleeping Bag Slam (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood) uncut version is better (6 hits)

So there you have it. These are some of the best deaths in the franchise but there are so many to choose from. So if you have a favorite just post a description of it in the comment box. Top Halloween death scenes will be later today.

Chuck Norris On The Expendables 2 Set

So the gods of action films have finally bestowed upon us a movie that will feature just about all the greatest action stars of the 80's in one film. The Expendables 2 is racking up to be a top notch action film with just hearing about the cast. The reports of which action stars are going to be in it have been all over the board from John Travolta to Charlie Sheen. Well, we have ourselves another on-set photo that proves one casting rumor true: Chuck Norris is going to be in it! Most likely just a cameo like Willis and Schwarzenegger in the first one. Which they both have full roles in this one. Awesome. 

Here is the  photo of Chuck Norris on-set with Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren. I Cannot wait to see see this kick-ass movie. 

The Expendables 2 kicks ass into theaters on August 17, 2012

HOW TO: Hide Newstand App in iOS 5 (Sorta)

So if your like me and have no desire to use the Newstand app that is undeletable after the update to iOS 5 then I have a solution for you! So you noticed that the app is not able to be put into a folder or deleted. That just sucks so much having an app we will never use. Some smart (bored) apple fans have found a bug in the software that lets you trick your iDevice to let you put the app in a folder. By putting the app in a folder renders the app useless and if you click on it, well it makes your home screen reboot. (Fun thing to do with friends iPods at school I assume.) So DON'T do this trick if you intend to use this app. Here are the steps you will have to do to make it work.

NOTE: You must work quickly on these steps to make the trick/fix to work.

Step #1- You must combine 2 apps (doesn't matter what 2 app) into a folder.

Step#2 - When the apps get bigger and the folder animation starts, You must QUICKLY! drag the Newsstand app over the folder. It should show up into the folder. It may take a few tries to get it right.

Step#3 - You now have a folder created with the dreaded Newstand app hiding from your home screen.

Random Fact: If for some reason you would like to get the stupid Newstand app to work just drag it out of the folder and it will work just fine. Good luck.

Trailer of the Week: A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

I was pretty skeptical about this movie way back when they announced they were making it because of the fantasy plot and change in directors and writers. I will say that this isn't that bad. It's actually hilarious! Come on a baby high on weed and Cocaine. That is hilarious. Also, the 3D seems like it will be pretty good.

WARNING: this trailer is red band and features boobs, kids on drugs, claymation penis, and racial jokes, santa smoking a bong, and NPH. Enjoy.

After years of growing apart, Harold Lee (John Cho) and Kumar Patel (Kal Penn) have replaced each other with new best friends and are preparing for their respective Christmas celebrations. But when a mysterious package arrives at Kumar’s door, his attempt to deliver it to Harold’s house ends with him inadvertently burning down Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree. With his in-laws out of the house for less than a day, Harold decides to cover his tracks rather than come clean, and reluctantly embarks on another ill-advised but hilarious journey with Kumar, taking them through New York City on Christmas Eve in search of the perfect Christmas tree.

The Punisher is Coming to The Small Screen?!

So apparently FOX has ordered a pilot for The Punisher. I'm just as shocked as you. I am the biggest Punisher fan I've ever met, being I have every comic featuring him and all the movies (which I love). Seriously, why have a tv show on broadcast television no less give us at least Showtime.

FOX has tapped Criminal Minds showrunner Edward Bernero to adapt the character to a tv show. The format is actually pretty similar to another marvel character. The show will be an hour-long police procedural featuring Frank Castle (The Punisher) as "a rising star detective with the New York Police Department" and when he goes home for the night, he is The Punisher fixing the filth in the city he can't do legally. Sounds kind of familiar. Just change the setting from detective to lawyer and BAM you got Daredevil or stick with cop and you maybe get Dexter.

Marvel is just milking the characters they own with having multiple shows in-production featuring The Hulk, Cloak and Dagger, Powers, and AKA Jessica Jones. I'm loosing faith in you Marvel.

No news when show will premiere just gotta wait and see

The Avengers Trailer!!

Finally we have been blessed with the long-waited for trailer for the upcoming epic nerdgasm film The Avengers. The trailer actually shows more footage then I thought Joss Whedon would allow knowing his vow to secretcy almost on par with J.J. Abrams. The footage looks really amazing and it gives everyone screen time accept I would like to see more of Hawkeye and Hulk. Also, I'm loving Stark's humor, it's fantastic as always.

Summer 2012 will be blockbuster crazy with The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The  Avengers.

The Avengers assembles on May 4, 2012

Bearded Superman and Redheaded Lois Lane

Like I mentioned earlier this week, filming is currently taking place in Vancouver for Man of Steel. The next superman film directed by visionary Zack Snyder.

Here is little bit of weird news from the set. Superman/Clark Kent has a big lumberjack beard and Lois Lane is strawberry blonde. I can't believe it either folks.

The ideas on why Clark Kent has a beard and is in an Alaskan fishing village are stirring around on the net. Could Clark be going on a self-finding trip or is he hiding from General Zod (Michael Shannon), or Lois Lane. Who knows? well Zack Snyder and the cast likely do but thats beside the point.

We will have to wait 2 years to find out whats happening!! Man of Steel flies into theaters June 14, 2013

If you haven't heard of this tech god then you have been living under a rock or a once sheltered tribe in the amazon. He has literally change the tech industry since he created Apple Inc. back in 1976. The products made by Apple have been revolutionary from the Apple II, iPod, iMac, iPhone, and iPad.

Rest In Peace Steve Paul Jobs. You will be dearly missed by all Apple fans. If you would wish to share thoughts, memories, or condelences about Steve Jobs then send an email to

Horse News: War Horse Trailer and Mr. Ed Movie Planned

Today has been pretty busy with the horse genre. Seems like every studio is horsing around with the idea of doing horse movies again. I'd believe it if they wanted to remake black beauty again.

The full trailer for Steven Spielberg's drama/action film War Horse has made its way online. The movie looks amazing visually and has an enticing premise of following a horse through a war. This is his run for the oscars. Here is the trailer for War Horse which is riding into theaters on December 28.

Second in todays horse news is Fox 2000 is planning on bringing the classic 60's tv show Mr. Ed back to the big screen. Nothing is know about the film at this time other then the horse will be real not CGI. Thank god, but wait it will have that awkward CGI lip movements. They can never get that right, just go back to putting peanut butter on the gums of the horses mouth. Thats humane right?

New Pics from The Avengers

I know i've missed so much of The Avengers coverage over the last couple of months. I am sorry again. So I'll start fresh with some awesome photos that were featured in EW and other sites last week with 2 brand new ones that popped up online.

The first (new) photos feature a epic scene with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) looking up at what I assume to be the enemy. The second new image is of director Joss Whedon talking to Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) with a guy posing like fonzie in the background.

The Avengers assemble in theaters on May 4, 2012

Other photos are awesome and are worth looking at after the jump

Disney and Pixar to Re-Release 4 Classics in 3D in 2012 & 2013

I'm guessing from the success of re-release of The Lion King in 3D last month, Disney and Pixar had a thought "hey we could totally take more money from families by re-releasing our other amazing classics in 3D."

Beauty and the Beast (January 13), 
Finding Nemo (September 14)
Monsters Inc. (January 18)
The Little Mermaid (September 13).

First Look at Russell Crowe/Jor-El on Man of Steel Set

The Daily Mail has managed to snag some images of Russell Crowe on the Man of Steel set in full Jor-El costume. Crowe will be playing Jor-El the real father of Superman. Pa Kent ain't got nothin on him. The armor/robe looks very ripping on Crowe. Nobody should have a phone anywhere near him when he's in character.

Filming of Zach Snyder's Man of Steel is currently in Vancouver and it's shaping up nicely. Other cast members include Henry Cavill (Superman) and Amy Adams (Lois Lane) , Diane Lane (Ma Kent), Kevin Costner (Pa Kent) , Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix and Laurence Fishburne.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol IMAX Poster

The new cool poster for M:I- Ghost Protocol has been released and it's pretty awesome at showing Tom Cruise hanging from the tallest building in the world and Tom being short helps with the height effect. The image really shows off how awesome Ghost Protocol will be in IMAX.

The newest Mission: Impossible film isn't directed by J.J Abrams sadly, but we have the talented director Brad Bird (The incredibles) to helm the fourth entry. He has quite the rep as an animated film director and this is his first live-action film. From what i've seen of it, I am impressed and can't wait to see this movie. 

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol will be released on December 16th in theaters and IMAX

Return of The Last Stand

It must be shocking to anyone that has noticed over the last 6 Months there has been no updates to The Last Stand. Well, I deeply apologize for the long absence. The reason being I was busy in Mongolia trying to be a monk. If you believe it or not. Don't believe that. No the actual reasons are pretty lame and I will not go into details. Just know I am back and hopefully here to stay for sometime. 

There has been a lot of changes since I was last blogging. The game has changed drastically. Like I have no idea what this new version of blogger is yet. I will play around with it in the next few weeks and get a feel for it. Also, the post format will be different. I will probably not update as often as before being I am a full time college student and work 30 hrs a week. So certain repeating post will not be used for instance DVD Tuesdays will not be returning (it was always a huge pain in the ass!). Also, movie reviews will be still updated just not often. Mostly the site will be movie and game news. 

So here is to the new rebooted The Last Stand. Sorry I missed out on things such as The Dark Knight Rises set craze, The Avengers Craze, and so so many others. I will try my hardest to cover everything again.
