THURSDAY, JUNE 13

DOCTOR SLEEP---trailer released for the sequel to THE SHINING starring Ewan McGregor.

LINK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2msJTFvhkU4




1917---photos released from the World War I movie directed by Sam Mendes (SKYFALL). The cast includes Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth and Richard Madden.









THE BATMAN---reportedly the movie's four villains are (in order of ranking):
The Riddler--a criminal mastermind in Gotham City who takes delight in incorporating riddles and puzzles into his schemes, leaving them as clues for the authorities to solve."
The Penguin--"Gotham City mobster...short, obese man with a long nose, and he uses high-tech umbrellas as weapons."
Catwoman--"Gotham City burglar...wears a tight one piece outfit and uses a bullwhip for a weapon."
Firefly--"a professional arsonist...attempts to burn all the places that he lacked the privilege to go as an orphan child."

THE BALLAD OF RICHARD JEWELL---Paul Walter Hauser (COBRA KAI) will play security guard Richard Jewell in the Clint Eastwood movie about Jewell, who was falsely accused of being the bomber in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Sam Rockwell will play Jewell's attorney.





GLADIATOR---producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald said the sequel to the 2000 Russell Crowe movie is still in development. MacDonald said, “We’re working with Ridley Scott, that’s one we wouldn’t touch unless we felt in a way to do it was legitimate. We’re working with an amazing writer as well, Peter Craig (THE TOWN, MOCKINGJAY)." Parkes added, “It picks up the story 30 years later… 25 years later.”





RAMBO: LAST BLOOD---Sylvester Stallone said he might return for another sequel if LAST BLOOD is successful, “Let me just say something about the ‘last’ of anything. I thought Rocky 3 was the last, you know. So I don’t know anything. If it works I’ll just keep going, you know, because I enjoy it so much.”

BAD DOG---Lionsgate comedy movie underway about the Devil's dog, Bub, who is banished from Hell by a rival. Bub is adopted by a loving family and protects them when the Devil arrives to bring Bub back to Hell.

LOBO---Syfy is developing the KRYPTON spinoff series about the DC Comics alien bounty hunter.

DON'T LOOK DEEPER---Quibi streaming tv sci fi series about a high school senior who thinks she isn't human. Emily Mortimer, Don Cheadle and Helen Howard star.

FERTILE CRESCENT---Hulu eight-part miniseries about the Syrian civil war starring James Purefoy.

TRIVIA---in John Carpenter's THE THING, RJ MacReady (Kurt Russell) plays computer chess game Chess Wizard and pours whiskey into the computer when he loses. The voice of Chess Wizard was Adrienne Barbeau, John Carpenter's then-wife.






Chess Wizard's voice was provided by Adrienne Barbeau, Carpenter's then-wife.

Looked up the composer; surely they'd hire somebody who has demonstrated the talent of Goldsmith to the point where even the score was parodied in "The Simpsons", to score fi ... the Newton Brothers.

Never mind.

I have a big fresh hot cup of WHY? here.


RAMBO: LAST BLOOD---Sylvester Stallone said he might return for another sequel if LAST BLOOD is successful, “Let me just say something about the ‘last’ of anything. I thought Rocky 3 was the last, you know. So I don’t know anything. If it works I’ll just keep going, you know, because I enjoy it so much.”

Why tell us it's the last only to go back and tell us it might not be?


LOBO---Syfy is developing the KRYPTON spinoff series about the DC Comics alien bounty hunter.

This has "Cancelled after one season" written all over it. Have you guys seen the photos?

RAMBO: Well, it's nice to know I won't spend the running time of the film waiting for Rambo to die at the end....

Justin: "i have a big fresh hot cup of WHY? here."

Go head. Maybe include or not include, "As the great Justin Boggan once said...". ;-)


It's inspired by this meme:

RE: THE BATMAN- They never learn. One villain isn't enough, we need two, no three, how about four?!
The story is guaranteed to be a rushed frivolous mess.

It can certainly be done with multiple villains. I thought Dark Knight successfully juggled Joker, Two Face, Scarecrow, and numerous mafia bosses. The trick is to not give them all equal time and focus. Firefly could be a great cold open villain, and Penguin could give Batman something to do while Riddler is slowly revealing his schemes. Also, I doubt Catwoman will be a villain. She plays by her own rules, and looks out for herself, but for the most part she ends up teaming up with Batman when things become serious.

That said, I am concerned for the project. For a long time they have been selling the solo Batman film as a smaller film where Batman actually uses his detective skills. Based on the above description I am not filled with confidence this will happen.

I have mixed feelings about Doctor Sleep after seeing this trailer.....

I loved The Shining novel - can't stand the Kubrik adaptation. It misses the point of pretty much EVERYTHING in the novel.

I enjoyed the Doctor Sleep follow up. It was no masterpiece but it was a satisfying rounding out of the Danny Torrance story. The fact that they're trying to tie it in to the original movie may work...but it disappoints me because it feels as though the point of the book may be missed. Again.

    The Screenwriter -- "a semi-homeless Starbucks hipster who complains about Hollywood running out of ideas while churning out the same. Starts every script with a Nietzsche quote. Hobbies: patchouli gardening, inhaling one's own farts. Dislikes: Citizen Kane, Watertower security guards, low wi-fi signals, gluten."


  • GLADIATOR---producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald said the sequel to the 2000 Russell Crowe movie is still in development. MacDonald said, “We’re working with Ridley Scott, that’s one we wouldn’t touch unless we felt in a way to do it was legitimate.

    "Legitimate?" I was barely entertained the first time. Legitimizing its mehness does it no favors.

  • Parkes added, “It picks up the story 30 years later… 25 years later.”

    20 years later... 10 years later... 1 year later... 2 seconds later... 30 minutes before... IT'S A PREQUEL SEQUEL MIDQUEL QUELQUEL!

    One of the things I don't like about The Thing. MacReady (Kurt Russell) plays computer chess game Chess Wizard and pours whiskey into the computer when he loses. What a moronic thing to do, the computer beats him, so he fucks it up, & he & no one else can play computer chess on it anymore, & this is our hero, plus he's a miserable sod throughout the film. Great special effects, but a terribly written film.

    I don't remember that scene but I loved the film when I saw it. I thought it was well written and suspenseful. Its one of the few films I like where Russel played a no nonsense tough guy.

    I didn't think any of the parts were well written, so I really didn't care what happened to any of the grumpy cast (& it really did need a woman or two in it). I remember really looking forward to seeing it after reading a double issue of the magazine Cinefantastique all about the making of the film (which I still have). I saw it the day it opened...& was so disappointed, & I'm not surprised that it wasn't a success at the time. But everyone loves it now, & any word said against it & they come down on you like a ton of bricks.

    The great special effects make-up wizard, Rob Bottin continued to do some great stuff after this (Total Recall & Robocop), but his credits disappear in 2002, maybe a victim of CGI...& then in 2014 his name turned up on the credits in a single episode of Game Of Thrones, the one where King Joffrey Baratheon dies, I think he did some work on his dying face.

    Yeah unfortunately even though Kubrick turned King's horror tale into a Kubrick dark comedy/satire, it remains very popular, even though it's the least scary "horror" movie ever. People claim it is one of the scariest movies ever and that befuddles me. Kubrick admitted to King he didn't like or understand horror and didn't care to. So there's no way they can adapt the Dr Sleep novel since the shadow of the film The Shining hangs over it. Flanagan admitted he's trying to make a sequel to please fans of the book and/or film.

    The trailer looks good except it's allllll color graded blue/green again. The single worst moviemaking cliche these days. That really dampens my enthusiasm. Darn kids and their cool digital coloring.
