Couldn’t be a day without Wolverine news.
Seriously, this is getting insane. Hugh Jackman should be dead at this point. I don’t think the man can physically do any more press for Wolverine. If it fails, it sure ain’t his fault. He was on Stern today too, I missed the interview. Hopefully it will be on Best of the Week tomorrow and I catch it. I’m pretty sure he only did Stern because the show revealed a couple weeks ago that it asked Stern not to watch the pirated copy. Something tells me the catch was, “We’ll send you Jackman if you don’t talk about the pirated movie.” Seems like a fair trade.
Uh oh, the reviews are getting worse. Still going Sunday, though, I could care less.
Not to be outdone, let’s really start the Star Trek hype machine turning. The question I think people are going to wonder the most about is whether the new cast is as good as the old one — now you have an answer.
Unless she comes out in one of two ways, I’m not interested. She either needs to be wearing her bikini from Jabba’s barge — the same one, not one that would fit her now — or she needs to show up as the crazy old writer lady she played on 30 Rock. Otherwise, pass.
In the swine flu stories I’ve done in the past couple days, I know I’ve tried to make sure people know to be calm and take this in stride. I’m glad medical professionals are recognizing this. In the media, you don’t want to make people panic, but you’re also not doing your job unless you give the full story. People are scared and there probably is a threat of this. But it’s no different than any other flu — stay healthy and do healthy things, and you should be fine. You don’t need to run the other way when someone sniffles.
Maybe what we’ve learned from movies about virus outbreaks could be of some help too.
Divorce is one of the worst things in the world. People do it too quickly these days instead of using it as a last resort. But I’ve never, ever cheered for a couple to get divorced more than this one.
This should have been made into a movie a long time ago. There are about 20 different ways — all of them good — that you can turn this into a movie. While we’re at it, let’s do a Pulp Fiction-like updating of Canterbury Tales and a modernization of Sound and the Fury.
It’s disappointing that of the three action movies Bruce Willis is considering, none of them is Die Hard 5. Although I’m not surprised at all that he found a project to do with Kevin Smith since in the Live Free or Die Hard DVD bonus features, Smith basically pulled Willis’s pants down for an interview.
For as much as Roger Rabbit made when it was in the theaters, it never really became a second-viewing hit. It’s not one of the movies that’s on TBS or TNT every weekend, it’s not very quotable and you’d be hard pressed to find five people in a room that could tell you what the plot actually was. So why bother with a sequel?
This had American remake written all over it from the jump. See the French version first, please, before we ruin it.
