Cool Video’s: Hear some new songs from William Shatner’s “Seeking Major Tom” here…

William Shatner’s new spoken word album, “Seeking Major Tom” is out now and hear a few tracks including an official music video of his cover, “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I do plan to buy this album soon, ’cause I enjoy Shatner’s spoken word stuff. He’s very talented at that. “Seeking Major Tom” is a two disc album, full of rock n’ roll covers.

Enjoy a few tracks from his new album in the videos below. They rock. I love ’em!

Cool Video: See William Shatner record vocals for Sabbath’s “Iron Man” in the studio…

Here’s a funny video of William Shatner recording spoken-word vocals for Sabbath’s, “Iron Man”. As some of you might already know the guitar parts were recorded by, Zakk Wylde.

Many would find Shatner singing pretty bad, but in reality, he’s not really singing. He’s still doing the spoken word thing. That’s how he has always done his cover songs. He does them the spoken word versions.

If you think Shatner is bad, everybody probably thought Ozzy was the worst when he first sung this song in the studio with Black Sabbath back in the day. Black Sabbath songs maybe good but Ozzy was never the greatest singer. He never had a powerful vocal range, it almost seems like Ozzy does the spoken word thing too. Ozzy admitted he never had vocal training.

William Shatner is set to release his new album, “Seeking Major Tom“, Oct. 11. It will be a double disc album full of covers of rock n’ roll songs of all time.

Enjoy the video below.

BREAKING NEWS: Jon Favreau is done with Iron Man!!!

Actor/director, Jon Favreau, announced the shocking news that he is done with Iron Man movies. The reason? Well, Jon has too much on his plate. He just finished “Cowboys & Aliens”, and he’ll have to get busy promoting the film. After he finishes promotion and marketing of “Cowboys & Aliens”, he’ll get right to work on Disney’s “Magic Kingdom” movie. I’m sure he wants to do another Iron Man movie, but he can’t. I can’t blame Jon for going with Disney instead ’cause it is a bigger opportunity.

Deadline, reports.

Honestly, I’m not sad that Jon is leaving the Iron Man series. The first one was good, but the second one was disappointing. I love the Iron Man character. It’s one of my favorite Marvel heroes. I hope they find a better director to make a good Iron Man movie. I’m sure Zack Snyder, would make a great Iron Man movie, but he’ll be busy doing Superman instead. Lets hope they don’t get shitty directors like Michael Bay, Joel Schumacher, or Bret Ratner. Anybody but them.

I wonder if Edward Norton will sign on to play in “The Avengers” as the Incredible Hulk? That be pretty cool.

Report: “Iron Man” still tops box office, “Speed Racer” flops…

“Iron Man” still stays strong on the no. 1 spot for box office this weekend. “Speed Racer” starring Emile Kirsch is no. 2 making around 20 million.

The Associated Press Reports:

http://apnews.excite.com/article/20080511/D90JKPUO0.html

“Iron Man” won’t be no. 1 much longer since “Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” came out this weekend. “Prince Caspian” will indeed beat “Iron Man” in world records. I will be seeing “Prince Caspian” tomorrow on my day off of work.

Oh yeah, speaking of “Iron Man”, I picked up the video game version of “Iron Man” for the PS3 at Best Buy today. I won’t play the game right away though, I need to beat “Grand Theft Auto IV” first before I start to play any other games. I think I’m officially addicted to videogames again. I don’t buy music CD’s or movies on DVD’s much anymore ’cause I’ve gotten back into videogames. I went out shopping with parents this afternoon since it’s Mother’s Day and all so I decided to go to Best Buy ’cause I couldn’t resist in buying something for myself.

Film Review: Iron Man

Starring: Robert Donwey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jeff Bridges

Directed by: Jon Favreau

 
Last night, I went to see the new “Iron Man” at a late showing. It really wasn’t one of my most anticipated films of the year, I saw it because it got good reviews and broke world records in box office. It actually took me a while to get interested in Iron Man because to be honest, I wasn’t interested in it at first. So I decided to check it out.

Robert Downey Jr. plays a business man and rich guy named Tony Stark. He goes on a trip with the Army in the Middle East, and then he suddenly suffered some life threatening danger there. Tony owns a weapons business where he makes a living off of and his goal to help saves lives in the world. Tony and the Army are being attacked in the Middle East by terrorist, Tony Stark decides to go on revenge by building an armor full of robotic weapons and flying equipment known as Iron Man.

As far as my thoughts on the movie goes, I thought it was pretty good and entertaining. Nothing amazing or great, but exceptionally good. I give credit for Marvel movies improving though. The fight scenes were entertaining but could be a little longer. Iron Man could have had a few more weapons. Jeff Bridges played a pretty good bad guy in the film. I also give credit to Robert Downey Jr’s good acting in the film.

While I thought “Iron Man” was pretty good, I’m sure there are even better movies coming out this year like “Indy 4”, “Prince Caspian”, “The Dark Knight”, “Wanted”, etc. I’m glad I went and saw “Iron Man” ’cause I came pretty close in waiting for DVD release.

“Iron Man” film score: *** (3 stars as in good)

BREAKING NEWS: Iron Man scores high in box office, “Son Of Rambow” did surprisingly well too!!!

The film “Iron Man” scored a sky rocketing $100.7 million in the box office this weekend. That’s fuckin’ impressive!

Also, the movie the “Son of Rambow” a film about two kids making their own Rambo film scored pretty high even if the movie was shown in only 5 theaters in the U.S., “Son of Rambow” made $52,549. Not bad for a film that was only playing in selected theaters. It’s very rare that a small movie like that scores high in box office. But hey, keep in mind it’s a movie adapted from the real “Rambo”. And “Rambo” is always the king of box office so….

I’m happy for Robert Downey Jr. that he’s staying off the drugs and staying out of trouble, the guy is looking real good these days too. This is definitely his biggest film in his entire career ever.

I’ll see “Iron Man” soon myself, I’ll see it later in the week.
