…Choke looks good?


Batman might be dominating the movie news right now, and though I’m excited to see it, I think I’m looking forward to Choke even more than the man in black.

Chuck Palahniuk is by far my favorite author, and his book to movie transition has proven itself in the past (Fight Club, anyone?) so I can’t imagine Choke is going to be any different.

Lest I ruin the story, I don’t want to dive too deep into the plot line (though I will say that the book was fantastic), but just make sure you keep this one on your radar, because you don’t want to miss a movie like this.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca?

Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca

Spada Vetture Sport’s TS Codatronca looks like the car Batman would dive if the Batmobile got a bit boring one day.

The front looks like a cross between a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a Corvette, and the rear looks like…like…well, it doesn’t really look like anything else on the market right now, since a giant Tetris tail and stealth bomber lines aren’t exactly in vogue over at GM’s design shop.

The interior however is both beautiful and functional, with plenty of suede and carbon fiber to remind you that you aren’t in a car that will serve fleet time as part of a rental program.

The engine also reminds you that you’re in a race-bred car, with 600 horses on tap, and a short ratio gearbox to compile with FIA GT1 regulations.

For the green lovers, there’s an ad-hoc “converter kit” that allows you to fuel the car with E85 ethanol and also gives you a slight increase in torque and power.

It’s definitely not your daddy’s supercar, but then, who wants that anyways?

…Angelina Jolie is sexy?

Angelina Jolie As Laura Croft In Tomb RaiderShe had to beat out Jessica Alba and Halle Berry to take top spot, but Angelina Jolie was recently named the Sexiest Female Superhero for her role as Laura Croft in the Tomb Raider movies.

The Sexiest Male Superhero was George Clooney for his role as Batman in Batman and Robin, beating out Christopher Reeve and Christian Bale for top sot among the men.

I guess I never knew the ability to wear skimpy clothing was considered a super power.
