Okay, probably not. But holy shit is it stupid. It the triumph of shitty style over the barest minimum of substance, because Paul W.S. Anderson is Michael Bay without the creativity or the budget, so we get women in skintight clothes fighting each with extendible technospears in the Arctic tundra. I don’t know if I had trouble with the Yahoo video player or what, but the dialogue didn’t come through — of course, Anderson might be at the point where he isn’t even bothering to record dialogue now, since words might distract from all the hackneyed bullshit imagery going on screen. Of course, an equally acceptable theory is that the dialogue actually killed itself in shame. (Via Blastr)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
