I recut the Deadpool 3 update announcement with Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman as a short video with popular Deadpool vs. Wolverine comic book covers. After calling out Wolverine in the last two movies, they will battle it out in “Deadpool 3” on 09/06/2024.
When I saw #BoycottWomanKing trending on Twitter, I wanted to see “The Woman King” even more. Whenever someone on social media tells you to boycott a movie, you should probably see the movie. You might be missing out on something special. “The Woman King” is less about the slave trade and more about the bonds of love.Read more “What The Woman King Boycotters Got Wrong”
“Dirty Harry” with Clint Eastwood was a controversial movie when it came out in 1971. A homicide detective takes the law into his own hands to stop a serial killer who got off on a legal technicality.
A different scene from that movie inspired a real life kidnapping five years later. The serial killer hijacks a school bus with the driver and children on board to get away from Dirty Harry. The school bus crashes inside the entrance to a rock quarry.
The Chowchilla kidnapping was—and still is—the largest kidnapping in U.S. history.
Why is that kidnapping still relevant today? The third and final kidnapper got paroled from prison and came out $100 million US richer than he went in.Read more “Dirty Harry, Chowchilla Kidnappings & The Parolee”
The Empire State Building became the tallest building in New York City in 1931. King Kong climbed that building to make his last stand in 1933.
The twin towers of the World Trade Center became the tallest buildings in 1973. King Kong climbed those buildings to make his last stand in 1976.
On September 11, 2001, 21 years ago today, terrorists brought down the twin towers. One World Trade Center, a.k.a., the Freedom Tower, rose up from the ashes to become the tallest building in 2014.
Is the Freedom Tower ready for a kaiju movie?Read more “Is the Freedom Tower READY For KAIJU MOVIE After 9/11?”
Inspired by the new Apple feature, “Dynamic Island,” introduced for the iPhone 14 Pro, I created this FortNite trailer from the first three seasons of Chapter 3. If you played FortNite for a while, the island is very dynamic from chapter to chapter, season to season, and sometimes even in the same season. FortNite Chapter 3 Season 4 starts on 9/18/2022.
Between “Bullet Train” in August to “Wakanda Forever” in October, expect no new blockbusters. New movies that should be out now are going straight to streaming or coming out next year. Theaters are bringing in old blockbusters to fill out the calendar.
I recently saw “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” for the first time after it came out 40 years ago. This weekend I saw “Jaws” on the big screen for the first time. Out of those two Steven Spielberg movies, “Jaws” was a better movie than “E.T.” on IMAX.Read more “Watching Jaws (1975) On The Big Screen FOR FIRST TIME!”
Movie props, costumes, R2 droids, and mechs occupied the dealer room of SiliCon with Adam Savage (08/27-28/2022).
Forty years after Steven Spielberg’s “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” came out, I saw the movie for the first time. “E.T.” is back on the big screen in IMAX theaters for a limited time. Between “Bullet Train” a few weeks ago and “Wakanda Forever” in November, old blockbusters are the new blockbusters. I figured out why I didn’t watch “E.T.” as a 12-year-old boy when it first came out in the summer of 1982. “E.T.” was boring.Read more “Watching E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) FOR FIRST TIME!”
“Bullet Train” is a movie about good luck, bad luck, and karma. Brad Pitt, a.k.a., “Ladybug,” is stuck on a bullet train with a half-dozen assassins from Tokyo to Kyoto in Japan. But he isn’t the star of this movie. In fact, the breakout star isn’t even human.Read more “Brad Pitt Is NOT The Star of Bullet Train”
One of the biggest changes since T-Mobile bought Sprint was the shutdown of the Sprint LTE network five weeks ago. Another big change is coming for former Sprint customers. T-Mobile will be ending the AAA membership perk next year.Read more “T-Mobile ENDING Sprint AAA Membership Perk”
