Meanwhile, the Spartans, who historically didn't give much of a thought about sea battles, are flying through the air for freedom, as long as it does not apply to Helots. It's camp, and butch, and all Lady Gaga, and Fascist, and stuff, all at the same time. Enjoy! 

Spider-Man 2 trailer: starts whiny ends up cheesy CGI

Okay, this is a joke and a half that only a fanboy can love.

Xbox meet C4: let the explosions begin!

You know that nothing would make you happier right now then to see someone use C4 explosives to blow up an Xbox and, even better, record it at 10 million frames per second. You can thank me later. For now, enjoy the carnage and mayhem in all its slow motion beauty.

The first trailer is out for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Robert Friggin' Redford is in this! Scarlett Johansson, Sam Jackson, and Chris Evans. I mean, this looks pretty cool. The first Captain America was a little flat and geezer-y, but this looks completely different. And, Robert Redford still rocks with the charisma thing.
