With stars such as Tom Cruise, Jack Nicolson, Demi Moore, and Kevin Bacon in A Few Good Men ($10), you know it’s going to be good. This movie, directed by Rob Reiner, is a classic example of an enduring movie masterpiece. A military lawyer, played by Tom Cruise, defends marines who have been accused of murder. In one court scene Jack Nicolson gives one of the greatest courtroom monologues ever all the while Tom Cruise holds his own against a great American actor. Check out the scene here. With a perfect marriage of crime, drama, and mystery, this is a movie that every man should see.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor ($TBA) is a beast and I can't wait to see this thing hit the road. Ford says the, "All-New F-150 Raptor Is Ford’s Toughest, Smartest, Most Capable Truck For Ultimate Off-Road Performance". This new trucks features some pretty impressive specs including, a high-strength steel frame specific to the Raptor, and a high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body that saves almost 500 lbs over the previous model. The power plant is a 3.5-liter Ecoboost engine with greater output than the current 411-horse, 434 lb-ft torque, 6.2 liter V8. The engine is paired with 10-speed transmission.Additional features include advanced LED lighting, camera technology for improved visibility during the day or night, large FOX racing shox that provide greater suspension travel, a terrain management system and all-terrain KO2 tires to take on the toughest trails, and an additional 6-inches of width for added stability. This bad boy will be built at the Dearborn, Michigan truck plant and will go on sale in the fall of 2016.
Angel Heart ($10) is an Alan Parker classic full of heart-pounding excitement, horror, and mystery. Starring Mickey Rourke, Robert De Niro, and Lisa Bonet, it follows Harry Angel and the problems he encounters with his new case. His goal is to find someone named Johnny Favourite. But that is not going to be very simple. Johnny doesn’t want anyone to find him. At first look, this may seem to be just filled with amazing scenery and details of the period. But that’s only part of the story. There’s more, much more. It’s about to get really nasty. This is one of my favorite movies form Mickey Rourke.
The Pacific Rim Movie ($TBA) looks pretty cool. It's about a future Earth where a monster comes from the ocean depths and attacks Osaka, Japan. We find out the monster comes from a portal, to another world that, is five miles below the ocean. The problem is that it is spitting out monster after monster, and they are attacking coastal cities around the world. In order to fight them the military creates the "Jaeger" program. Pilots in the program operate building sized robots to try and combat the monsters. Pacific Rim is directed by Guillermo Del Toro and is expected to be released on July 12th.http://youtu.be/zA92Rw6kNWw
Slide: The Lexus Hoverboard ($TBA) isn't quite passing the smell test, but it is one heck of a marketing ploy. And if it actually turns out to be real, which I seriously doubt, sign me up for a pre-order. If you go on the Lexus website you'll see them marketing their soon to be released hoverboard called Slide. Slide, if it's real, uses magnetic levitation to achieve frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets are also utilized to create the impossible. Along with the amazing tech you also get premium Lexus styling - including Lexus spindle grille signature shape, materials used in their cars, and natural bamboo. Stay tuned.
The New Sony SRS-X9 Speaker ($699) does everything you come to expect from all bluetooth speakers, but it comes with a little something extra. Just like almost every other bluetooth speaker can use your smartphone, tablet, or PC to stream music to the SRS-X9 via bluetooth, wi-fi, or USB-5. That music is delivered to seven speakers (3 tweeters, 2 midrange speakers, and 2 woofers) to provide some of the highest quality music. But the little extra the SRS-X9 brings is its ability to support lossless FLAC AUDIO formats up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution and high resolution WAV files, so you get maximum audio detail in every high quality track.
