With the Pirates of the Caribbean coming out this weekend, it is only fitting that we should take a look at hot pirates. They are a popular hero for romance novels including one of my personal favorite books Sapphire Dreams by Pamela Montgomerie.
What is it about rakish pirates that set us all atwitter? Sure it doesn’t hurt when they look like Johnny Depp. If we ignore historical lack of hygiene and rampant cases of scurvy and other diseases, one would suppose it had to be the swashbuckling adventure that is so hard to find in the modern-day. Lets face it, it’s hard to find such a charming, dashing rogue nowadays, don’t you think?
There are a lot of things associated with May: Spring, lambs, mothers, season finales, and zombies. Yes, zombies. Besides being National Military Appreciation Month, Jewish Heritage Month, and Mental Health Awareness Month; it is also the time for us to recognize zombie culture or something. I’m not really sure. There was no Wikipedia link for it.
Since zombies are not–and never will be–sexy, I dedicate today to recognizing sexy Asians and Pacific Islanders for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
In honor of Navy SEAL Team Six’s successful mission. Here are some sexy men in uniforms. Yes, I know I’m late, but a nap sounded amazing and that nap lasted a bit too long… okay it was like 5 or so hours and that really just means I slept. Having three part-time jobs may be the death of me and/or my sanity.
When the demon god Loki destroys the fortress of Valhalla and steals the Hammer of Invincibility, only the young hero Thor can protect Earth from Armageddon.
With all the buzz Thor has been getting, it is no surprise that Asylum (the company that bought us Sherlock Holmes fighting dinosaurs and THREE 2012 movies) has made a Thor rip-off.
This version features Cody Deal as Thor in his first starring role. Previously, Deal was a background centurion for a Las Vegas casino. One thing in his favor is the fact that he looks the part of a Norse warrior…well a pretty one at least. And from what little we actually see of his acting in the trailer, he seems competent and maybe more so. It is most apparent in the brief scene we see of Deal’s anguished shout after finding an injured Odin. Also, Thor uses a fucking Uzi! And that is pretty bad ass.
Speaking of Odin, who did they select to play the All-Father? Big Sexy Kevin “Diesel” Nash? Really? The other has Anthony Hopkins. And let’s face it, pro wrestlers do not have a good track record when it comes to becoming competent film actors.
The villain of the film, Loki, is played by Richard Grieco who is most well-known for his role as Dennis Booker from 21 Jump Street and Booker. He was barely in the trailer so I can’t tell how Grieco is going to play Loki besides making him look like a goth Chris Kattan.
I’m not expecting much from Almighty Thor which premieres May 7th at 9pm est on the SyFy channel. It looks like standard SyFy schlock with cheap looking special effects and B-list talent.
At least it can’t be worse than Sci Fi’s Thor: Hammer of the Gods. It’s a movie so bad that you’ll know it will suck a mere 10 seconds into the film, and after 20 seconds–when you find out they hired Zachary Bryan as Thor–you will shut it off. Possibly screaming in terror as you do so.
