News & Things: Walter Mitty, Sabotaged


Vin Diesel is Groot! Yup. He’s playing a talking tree in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. This may be the best thing he’s ever done. Of course, we here at WWAC know how to appreciate his work.

Second Sabotage Trailer Is Out
Evidently we’re letting Arnold make movies full time again. Wasn’t The Last Stand evidence enough that this was a mistake? Well nevermind. Hollywood doesn’t listen to the likes of me. Arnold’s latest, due in 2014, is pretty standard cop drama fair. Sabotage has lots of guns, lots of cowboys sorts, and Arnold is decidedly too damn old for this bullshit. The second trailer just dropped, and while it’s got Joe Mangiello doing Dog the Bounty Hunter cosplay, and Sam Worthington with a beard braid, I’m just not sure if Sabotage is up to my angry-old-man-gets-angry-movie standards. (They’re high. I give my approval to only the finest old man movies.)

Secret Life of Walter Mitty: Ben Stiller Would Have Hated This Movie
Devin Faraci of Badass Digest destroys the latest from Ben Stiller, calling it a sanctimonious put on. Ouch. Run, don’t walk, away from Walter Mitty.

The Dissolve is less harsh, praising Stiller’s ambitious visuals, but doesn’t recommend it either. Sorry Ben!

She Has No Head!–25 Favorite Fictional Females, 2013 Edition!
Who are Kelly Thompson’s top 25 this year? You’ll have to read to find out, but I was surprised by a few of them, and intrigued by a few others.

And finally…

Tess Fowler has been killing it with a series of portraits of your favourite badassas in red ink and ink wash. As if this dramatic Red Sonja isn’t awesome enough, today’s Doc Holliday–from one of my favourite modern Western’s–is all childhood feels for me. Wait no, all my childhood feels are here, with She Ra. Check out the whole series on her website.
