Bangkok Knockout looks as awesome as The Protector and Ong-Bak. Can’t wait for this one to make its way to the states. If Magnet/Magnolia wants to send me an advanced review copy, I would not be opposed. (via /Film)
I don’t know what iOS is, but I want to find out now that I know that The 7th Guest will be available on it. That was one of the few computer games I ever got into and still remember part of the answer to the first puzzle, something like “The light is ruddy, the night is bloody.” I had to look “ruddy” up.

I don’t know what to think about the Toxic Avenger remake I read about on /Film. I love how weird, bad and violent the original was (it’s a big part of my childhood), but I can’t imagine a remake topping it. Who am I kidding? I’ll be there in the theater.
I’m not a huge fan of action figure reviews because they tend to be the same, but Fwoosh does a good job with them. Even better are the class pictures they put together like they just did with the 14th wave of DC Universe Classics. I especially like the JSA team shot.
The missus first told me about Cooks Source magazine copying a food blogger’s recipe and printing it without permission and then giving the original writer shit because, as they said, everything on the internet is public domain. According to a Wired story by David Kravets, Food Network is also investigating the mag. Ugh. How do people like this have any business being in journalism?
I’ve never seen The A-List on Logo and I kind of never want to because Tom & Lorenzo’s recaps make me laugh way too hard. This week’s post is no different. I really dig Ace of Cakes and really appreciate anyone who can turn something they love into a job they can share with their friends, so I’m happy for and jealous that Duff got to voice a cake-delivering robot on Clone Wars. StarWars.com talked to the chef about it.
Esquire.com‘s Tom Junod comparing President Obama’s decreasing charm to the idea of Miles Davis losing both his ability to play AND his mystique is an interesting one.
“Imagine Miles Davis losing not just his ability to blow but also his mystique; he might get his chops back, but the aura would be more difficult to restore, along with his ability to captivate audiences by turning his back on them. Of course, Obama has never turned his back on us, but so many Americans have turned their backs on him that it amounts to The Anointed One, as he is sometimes referred, being stripped of something that can never return: his anointment.”
