So I’ve been pretty absent lately, and the reason for that is mainly due to a new WordPress blog I’ve created with two of my best friends called Students of Cinema. It’s strictly dedicated to movies and our differing views within a shared passion.
I’ve also been distracted by school, True Detective, and now House of Cards Season 2. I’m hoping to write up a True Detective episode 5 review later today and eventually drop a House of Cards Season review when I finish the season later today or definitely tomorrow.
I’ll be dropping my Top 10 movies of the year list over at the other site, but am going to post it here as well. My post relating to movies will probably lessen here because it’s the focus of Students of Cinema, but I’ll still be pumping out TV news, and should also be putting more comic reviews out very soon as well. I’m almost caught up with The Superior Spider-Man and want to roll right into X-Men: Days of Future Past.
So feel free to check out my new website, it’s really awesome and we are pumping out a lot of content! Otherwise, I’ll have some TV and comic reviews out soon!
Michael B. Jordan cast as the Human Torch!
Well, we knew that actor Michael B. Jordan expressed his interest to play Johnny Storm in the planned reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, and today that seems to have come true. Over at schmoesknow.com, they report that a trusted source has confirmed Jordan will, in fact, portray the cocky, awesome, bad boy.
I think that this is an awesome choice because Jordan is a good actor. I first saw him in Friday Night Lights and thought he was the best part of the later seasons, and within this past year, he’s really started to be in a lot of good movies too.
I’m excited to here Jordan be yelling, “Flame on!” are you?
Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Frontrunners for Ant-Man!
Wow! This is some awesome news relating to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man film that’s scheduled to release in 2015, kicking off Marvel’s Phase 3. There hasn’t been much news about this film, but I know I’ve wanted to know two things; (1) Which version of Ant-Man is being used (because multiple people have been Ant-Man) and (2) Who is being considered for the role.
Lucky for me, lucky for all of us, today we get some news about who might play Ant-Man. According to the Variety article I linked to, Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are the leading choices to portray the hero. Both will meet with Wright and the Marvel execs and then a decision is expected to be made soon.
I also find it interesting that they mention a third actor might be brought into the mix! Hopefully we will know who is portraying Ant-Man soon!
A nice teaser for the return of Kenny Fuckin’ Powers. It’s going to be a great and bizarre return, no doubt, but September 29th needs to come sooner!
New poster for the second movie in the Hobbit trilogy. Looks pretty cool if you ask me, I thought the first movie was really awesome!
