Unless I'm crazy, the Bourne link is wrong. It's the same link as the previous news bit was.

Excited about a new Bourne movie, disappointed in the idea of a Scarface remake, but the one I love, is in itself a remake, so I really can't say anything. And Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones leaving Parks & Rec is sad.

Love the Sentinel

Edit: looking back, it's alright looking, I'm just excited for them being in the film!

And Insidious 2 looks crazy!

Those Sentinals are attrocious and I think Bryan Singer is a terrible director. X-Men 1,2 and 3 were not good movies. I do, however, have high hopes for Days of Future Past.

The sentinels look like they were ripped straight out of Irobot, which I'm not a huge fan of.
