Looks like we can blame “Alexander” on Jordan Catalano. Oliver Stone still rules.
“I recently attended a Q&A session with one of the writers of ‘Eagle Eye’ after a free screening organized by the magazine Creative Screenwriting. During the Q&A, the writer said that he and whomever it was that helped him co-write the ‘Eagle Eye’ screenplay were in the process of writing a sequel to Blade Runner, and had already contacted the producers of the original, etc., etc. This is probably a load of empty words/wishful thinking on his part, but I for one am appalled by just the notion of a Blade Runner sequel, and thought you’d be as well, so I thought perhaps you’d like to look into this yourself and perhaps use your soapbox to get some fanboys a little pissed, as well. If not, then at least you have a scoop.”
If there is any movie that does not deserve a sequel it’s Blade Runner; in my opinion not just the greatest science fiction film of all time, but the greatest film of all time (those of you who know me know I don’t play on this subject). Now before we all go and pound a bathtub of Jim Bean, keep in mind no production company has signed on for this. Hopefully all of the damning reviews of Eagle Eye will keep any studio from ever doing so. I’ve already been kicked in the nuts by you once this week Eagle Eye, what else do you want from me!?!?
“There’s no question the economy is facing a difficult crisis that needs to be addressed,” said White House spokesman Tony Fratto, who two hours earlier had predicted the legislation would pass. “And there’s no question Bauer is our last hope.”
“Tell me where the economic bailout is NOW!” stated CTU agent Jack Bauer after tying a Wall Street broker to a chair and partially suffocating him with a plastic bag. “Damn it!”
From duking it out in the squared circle to reigning supreme as the governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura can do it all. Not even unleashing an arsenal of hell on hunters from outer space can slow this mutha down. Well “The Body” has set his sights on a new challenge…the world of Reality Television. Variety.com says:
“The former Navy SEAL, professional wrestler, small-town mayor, actor and governor of Minnesota has struck a deal with truTV to topline a skein that will find him investigating the validity of various conspiracy theories.
“The pilot, from A. Smith & Co. Productions (“Hell’s Kitchen”), begins shooting in October. It will feature Ventura — who also will take a producing credit — traveling to various locales to hear out the claims of skeptics and adherents to a particular conspiracy theory, after which he’ll render a verdict on the alleged phenomenon’s veracity.”
How sweet would it be if he was the guy to crack the “second gunman” theory.
So another episode of Heroes was farted onto our laps last night. I would rather have been pondering over why there’s one very long hair on one of my arms instead, but my hands were tied (thank you Ohmars).
To be quite honest with you, my little Thunderkittens, I truly don’t know where I stand with this show anymore. Last week was so bad that NBC came really close to getting a very angry email, chalk full of very dirty words. But last night wasn’t half bad. Read the rest of this entry »
