I really don't like the way the sentinels look.

Unless I'm crazy, the Bourne link is wrong. It's the same link as the previous news bit was.

Excited about a new Bourne movie, disappointed in the idea of a Scarface remake, but the one I love, is in itself a remake, so I really can't say anything. And Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones leaving Parks & Rec is sad.

Love the Sentinel
Edit: looking back, it's alright looking, I'm just excited for them being in the film!
And Insidious 2 looks crazy!

not really digging the look of the Sentinel...
really digging the glory that is Martin Freeman's 'stache.

Parks news is heartbreaking.
03:28 PM on 08/04/13
"Update: Sources close to the film reveal that Lindsay Lohan is not being considered and will not be cast in 'Live By Night.'"

diid not see that! Sorry this is built throughout the week and that was the first thing I added.

No problem, man. Sorry to be a nitpicking asshole, haha.
04:05 PM on 08/04/13
you're not being that at all!

Those Sentinals are attrocious and I think Bryan Singer is a terrible director. X-Men 1,2 and 3 were not good movies. I do, however, have high hopes for Days of Future Past.

You can't afford to live like this
The sentinels look like they were ripped straight out of Irobot, which I'm not a huge fan of.
