We Rode on a Tank with Arnold Schwarzenegger

I think it's safe to say at this point, that Arnold Schwarzenegger is a renaissance man. He acts, used to body build, and has dabbled with politics. Now, we can add tank driver to his resume. And not just any tank, an M-47 that he calls his own.

I had the rare pleasure of going down to Melody Ranch this past weekend to ride on a tank with Schwarzenegger. Yep, you read that right. Lionsgate had the brilliant idea, in support of their upcoming film "The Last Stand", which marks Arnold's return to acting in a leading role. The film looks like it could showcase Arnold in a role we know and love him for, as seen in such classic films as "True Lies". Complete with action, comedy and some clever one-liners, the film looks like it's definitely going to be a good time.


As I was holding on to the side of the tank for dear life, I'm happy to report that Arnold has amazing precision when it comes to driving a tank. Several times it looked like we were about to take out some very large trees, but Arnold had it under control. In case any of us doubted the power of said tank, we had the privilege of watching him completely pancake a car! He was also smoking a cuban while driving, I might add. As if the coolness factor needed to be further solidified.

Melody Ranch also happens to be where Quentin Tarantino shot some of "Django Unchained". We had lunch inside the actual saloon from the film, where Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx indulged in a beer before getting into it with the town deputy. Being a huge Tarantino fan, that was quite a thrill.

Well ladies and gentlemen, he told us he'd be back! Check out "The Last Stand" in AMC Theatres on January 18th.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
