Louis C K is probably one of the most underrated comedians of the last 25 years. To see him, you would have no idea that there was such a talented comic genius lurking inside what his fleshy exterior betrays to be a house dad from the burbs ‘. I mean no disrespect, but he does not have that hard living comedy look to him.
You saw George Carlin…..you knew he was comedy…….You saw Jerry Seinfeld…..you knew he was comedy…..Bill Maher……Jon Stewart…….Lewis Black…..Chris Rock….Dave Chapelle. Endless others They “looked” like comedy. Louis C K looks like you might bump into him in the paint aisle in Home Depot(Shameless unpaid plug) and you could have a nice conversation with him. Right up until the point he opened his mouth.
Did you happen to see him host SNL a while ago? Where his opening set took Pedophilia to task with a side splitting , jaw dropping opener of humor and gasps? No?…..you missed out.
I have to admit. I’ve never actually seen any of the incarnations of IT.I vaguely remember watching a part of an ending of one of them and thinking “meh”……compared to CUJO and Carrie it didn’t seem that scary to me. Clowns have never scared me very much. Fear of clowns? Coulrophobia…..and now you know.
This trailer is pretty damn good though. Seems part Stranger Things(God has that series influenced productions in the last year. Many times just for the music alone.), part Goonies and part Jaws(Sometimes NOT seeing the shark is as bad as seeing it).The trailer has also confirmed you should never look into drainage grates along sidewalks before your illogical mind meets your logical mind, when you realize the boogeyman can in fact fit down there and can grab your ankle if you get to close.
From what I have seen of the cinematography, it looks like it’s going to be shot with that early 80’s style nostalgia that’s very hip right now. I may have even seen that dead girl who no one REALLY cared about from Stranger things somewhere in the back of the class room shot in the trailer.
Pennywise this time around is being played by actor Bill Skarsgard. I don’t think he’ll be able to top Tim Curry’s go at it back in the day ,but his brother is Alexander Skarsgard(True Blood, Tarzan), who has a brooding intensity in his roles and if the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree he could pull off quite the performance.
I know this is going to be a good movie. Everything I have seen so far tells me this is going to be a good movie. It’s got a funny Spider-man…….it’s got Michael Keaton……..it’s got Iron Man AND Robert Downey JR.It’s got a pretty decent looking version of a villain not yet seen before(I don’t count the shot of the wings in that OTHER movie.).I think i’m just Spider Manned out.It’s that simple.
Having said that, let’s take a look at this new trailer with as unfiltered an eye as we can muster……….. Okay, I’m back. I think that Michael Keaton and Robert Downey Jr are either going to make or break this movie. The new kid (Tom Holland , who I have to admit looks the part better then any of the other folks who played Spider-man before him)seems to have some decent acting chops, but I think his interpersonal relationship with Tony Stark and his Antagonist/Protagonist back and forth with the Vulture(Michael Keaton) will make or break this movie. I mean, let’s be honest, we’ve all seen Spider-man swing through the city a thousand times on film by now. This film has to have more in the way of interpersonal relationships for it to be a hit.
Michael Keaton was a great choice to cast as the Vulture. Fitting also since we was Spider-mans first real “Supervillan” way back in Amazing Spider-man #2 .I know, I know , I left out the Chameleon, but I meant someone who went “toe to toe” with Spider-man. Wouldn’t it be a mark- out moment if Vulture examined his wings and said in a Dark voice” Steel wings…..different, but not alien to me”.
This movie will make a tonne of money. It just will. I just hope some of it’s merit is based on quality and not just on history. Movie drops July.7th. 2nd Trailer below.
Well Folks. It’s that time of the year again. The winds of shit are on us once again. I suppose I should go back a bit. The Trailer Park Boys have always had a special place in my heart.I grew up about 30 minutes from the Trailer park they shot the first 2 seasons in. I’ve known scammers, thieves , fuck ups and park people and believe me when I tell you……..half the people in that show are based on real life folks.
Looks like the boys are going back to basics in this new Season and I’m pretty sure I just saw Ricky get shot in the nuts by a 3 year old……oh and Bull semen appears to play a large part in the new season. I say that with a straight face. and little fan fare because that’s a perfectly normal day in Sunnyvale Trailer Park.
New season drops this Friday folks. Get yourself an empty piss jug a few grams of weed, and strap in for 13 episodes of “What the fuck did I just watch?!?”……You’ll thank me later. Trailer for the boys below.
For those of you who watched last week……hoo boy, did not see THAT coming. This is a bittersweet finale for me for a show that never truly reached its full potential. It did a great job of building this amazing universe over the seasons, but never really did as much as they could have with it.
It wasn’t a perfect show by any means. The villain of the week format did get tiresome after a while, but they did develop an undercurrent of a main storyline each week so I was okay with it. One of the most important by products of this format is that the viewers got introduced to dozens of difference races in the Vessen world. Some of these episodes were one offs, but many of them made appearances in the show as it continued and some of them because semi featured characters.
I think this is one those shows that could have a life on Netflix or another network, if they could provide a bit more room for the darker edge the show should have had from the beginning, but just seemed to show up in the last season.
If you have any interest in perhaps reading a few of their adventures, there are two series(One in 2013 and another in 2016) that DYNAMITE released that might be off interest to you.
Final Episode airs This Friday Mar.31rst.Trailer below
I’m afraid to be really excited about this. Damn it though, it looks good. It seems like a much better vibe between the team then in any of the other trailers. Aquaman looks completely bad ass and I suspect if they keep Jason Momoa to one liners he’ll do okay on this outing. Cyborg’s CGI looked a bit off, but 10 times better than the other footage that I saw. The CGI in general had a “300” vibe to it which I’m okay with.
I’m 90% sure I know who the villain is, but they never really gave much away in this trailer which I think was the best route to take. I pretty knew knew the whole story to B vs S before I ever saw the film. No mention of Superman here, although he was alluded to via Amy Adams. Dialogue was a bit campy, but remains to be seen how that plays out.
Last night, I watched what was probably the best episode of Arrow since Deathstroke killed Oliver Queens mother. I’d go so far as to say it was the best acting job I had seen Steven Amell ever do and he and Josh Segerra(Prometheus)really created some of the most intense scenes I had ever seen on the show.
I had never seen Josh Segerra act anywhere other than Arrow but with each episode he more and more defines and crafts this character so well that he’s pushing with each episode into being the 2nd best villain to be featured in the series(Not sure if anything could top Deathstroke).
Obviously if you have not seen this weeks episode there are spoilers contained within.
