Better post apocalyptic hip hop music video…You decide.
50 Cent’s Get Up or 2Pac’s California Love? 50’s rolling with an I Am Legend style, which I love, but nobody does solo black guy in the city better than Will Smith. Pac’s gone Mad Max, specifically Beyond Thunderdome, and has cameos to spare. I’m definitely leaning towards California Love. It’s always been one of my favorite music videos. Either way, Dre wins.
Speaking of the apocalypse, Hulu has added The Last Man on Earth to their growing collection. Combine that with 28 Days Later, Night of the Living Dead, and The Fifth Element, and you’ve got a decent weekend of sci-fi. Perhaps somebody could shine some light (AZIZ!) on the original Planet of the Apes or Waterworld. That’d be awesome. While we’re making suggestions, why isn’t Speed on there?
Also, Empire magazine released their 100 Greatest Movie Characters list. It’s pretty good, but, of course, I disagree with a few of them. Capt. Jack Sparrow? Seriously?

I don’t know what Hulu is, but The Last Man on Earth has been on archive.org for a while! I can recommend it.
There’s a reason we call him Smart Guy. I had totally forgotten about Archive.orgs library of public domain films. Night of the Living Dead is also on there. Hulu does have higher resolution video, the cleanest online video interface, and a queue.
I found the Empire list was worth it just for the Blade quote (#47).
Haha, good find Bagwell. Here’s an unordered top 10 characters in my book:
Tony Stark – Robert Downey Jr. – Ironman
Max Rockatansky – Mel Gibson – Mad Max Trilogy
Robert Neville – Will Smith – I Am Legend
The Raptors – Jurassic Park 1 & 2
George Taylor – Charlton Heston – Planet of the Apes
Marty McFly – Michael J. Fox – BTTF Trilogy
Jason Bourne – Matt Damon – Bourne Trilogy
Danny Ocean – George Clooney – Ocean’s Trilogy
Tyler Durden – Brad Pitt – Fight Club
Han Solo – Harrison Ford – Star Wars Trilogy
