Looking forward to that Ti West film. Sounds interesting.

I liked Bridesmaids, but I really hope they don't go through with a sequel.

Although I wasn't a fan of We Need To Talk About Kevin when I watched it, that poster is really cool.

I think Jeff Who Lives At Home is currently my most anticipated film for 2012.

Funny that the thing I'm most excited about from the above news is a film score.

Expendables 2 pg-13? The awesome thing about the first one was over the top violence and all the blood. I'd love to see Norris punch a hole through a guys stomache

Chuck Norris is kind of a pussy. He wouldn't like language like that.

As a Texan who has met Chuck Norris a few times, I have to say I'm dissapointed in him for the PG-13.
