Keeping up our theme of funny ARNOLD videos we have the action legend pranking tourists on Hollywood Blvd and in Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. Schwarzenegger really has been on a roll lately with the comedy and I hope that on that he is back in action form for the new Terminator flick that comes out next week!
Last month we spotlighted 2nd Serve, which you can watch for free on Snag Films. From romantic comedies to b-sci-fi, the free movie site has a lot of variety. Today we are spotlighting Dragon Wasps, a movie by Joe Knee that stars Corin Nemec, Dominika Juillet, Nikolette Noel, and Benjamin Easterday. As you can imagine, the 2012 movie was a SyFy flick and seems to completely fit their mold.
Giant killer wasps. I’m totally down.
