First they see terrorists all around the world (usually when they find it convenient) and then they see aliens everywhere, yep, you've guessed it, it's the Americans. New sf alien film "Battle: Los Angeles" describes exactly the favourite American pastime of finding new reasons to use weapons as often as possible. These five spooky posters promote the film which starts when unknown forces suddenly and mercilessly attack the City of Angels out of nowhere, and then it's up to a local Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and a new platoon of unseasoned soldiers (Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Lucas Till) to meet the threat. As the invasion hits the streets of LA, these Marines become the first and last line of defense in an intense battle against an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered before.

And after his tragic fiasco in all means possible, it seems that lovely and incredibly polite creature Mel Gibson has a new cunning plan on how to make people love him again (which hasn't happened in a decade at least). After using his tongue and fists as lethal weapon, according to new rumors, Mel might do "Lethal Weapon 5". Producer Joel Silver has been asking him to reprise the role for years now, but Mel is thinking of accepting it only now, when the whole world has developed a very low opinion about him, as a possible way to get some of his fame back.

And to finish in a nicer tone - here's a brand new video from the amazing Brandon Flowers, the singer of the super popular band The Killers, who has finished his solo album "Flamingo". The video for the first single "Crossfire" features stunning Charlize Theron as a skilled fighter who is saving him from some bad guys.


  1. Not a bad tune. And I love your bit about Battle Los Angeles. But I am probably gonna check it out when it's released. As for Mel, well, I don't think we need another Lethal Weapon, or anymore of him what so ever.


  2. glad you like it, Bryan ;)
    yep, I don't think we need anything else from Mel anymore.

  3. Battle Los Angeles has Aaron Eckhart in it so it's worth checking out.

    As for Mel in LW5....I don't think the fan base is really there.

  4. DEZMOND - Yeah, we need another Lethal Weapon movie with Mel Gibson in it, like we need another hole in our ozone. NOT. Okay, I shouldn't try to be funny. The man is yucky!!! =D Have a great day Dez!!! xoxo

  5. @Lisa
    Aaron had some nice roles before, especially in THANK YOU FOR SMOKING.

    I'm just afraid it won't stop him, we didn't need PASSION nor APOCALYPTO either but he made those movies anyway :(((((

  6. Battle Los Angeles sounds intriguing. And at some point, action stars are just too old to reprive their signature roles. Here's hoping Harrison Ford never steps into the role of Indiana Jones again, either!

  7. great video! i was just thinking about why it seems that guys never play the role of the damsel in distress... and getting a bit irritated. then i clicked on your blog/video and laughed out loud! :) seriously though, i was beginning to think that perhaps he was in league with the bad guys. getting them to tie him up SO he could be rescued by charlize theron... i don't think he'd be the only guy willing to do that! :)

  8. I LOVE The Killers! And I'm glad I found your blog. ;]

  9. @Alex
    I believe there were rumors this spring about INDY JONES 5 (or is it 6?)

    yep, and I'm also sure there wouldn't be just one girl who would like to be Brandon's savior :))

    what's there not to love? :)) And I'm more than glad to have you here, Amanda, hope we'll be seeing you often at HOLLYWOOD SPY ;)

  10. Dear Dezmond,
    Just to let you know, I have awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award! I see you already have it so don't worry if you don't want to do anything about it, but know you are appreciated!

  11. I love Brandon Flowers (and the Killers). Thanks for the great, new tune!

  12. I'm wondering if the controversy won't somehow work in Mel's favor for that particular flick. I don't know, just an inkling.

  13. If Gibson want to revive his career he definitely need to reboot his attitude first.

  14. @Phylly
    I know, Phylly, I've put the award proudly in my award sidebar two days ago :)) Thank you for the honour :)

    we all love him :))

  15. @Missed Periods
    it might, the world is crazy enough :(

    yep, but I'm afraid it would be a mission impossible!

  16. Mel could do a sequel to "Anger Management", after he had some and went to rehab, He needs to go, go, go~

  17. Not gonna work for Mel--he went too far. Battl LA looks pretty interesting. I like Eckhart in small doses.

    Gothic Lit today at SouthernCityMysteries

  18. I wanted that Lethal Weapon finale... but now I really don't. He lost his playfulness with all those tapes and I can't really see him in that role again.

  19. @Ellie
    oh, he could really do that one :)

    you should watch Eckhart in THANK YOU FOR SMOKING, I think you would like that one.

    hey, MC, haven't seen you in ages :((( Yep, I think no one wants to see Mel anymore on the big screen, but time will tell what will happen. People forget things very easily.

  20. I was working on some stuff for a collaborative blog. Sorry it has been a while.
