Anyone who has read Captain America comics and watched the Marvel movies knows that eventually someone will be taking over the mantle of Cap. It’s inevitable, Chris Evans will eventually be replaced whether it be a reboot with another Steve Rogers or with one of the options that are readily available to use in the existing MCU. Sam Wilson (Falcon played by Anthony Macke) is currently a Captain America. But before he became Cap, there was another who took over the shield when *SPOILER*………………… Steve Rogers is assassinated. Bucky Barnes became the shield toting super soldier replacing the dead…. Well, somewhat dead Steve Rogers. Actor Sebastian Stan has thrown fuel on the fire with his Instagram post showing him with an all new shield design. Does this mean that Bucky will indeed be the new Cap or is it just a prop that he had made for himself? Only time will tell the real story.
The burning question I have is one of politics. Will Marvel decide to skip a section of Cap lore (yes I realize they have skipped a ton) that is sitting on a silver platter in front of them by making Bucky the new Captain America or will they skip to present day comics and make Sam Wilson the new Cap? I personally would like to eventually see both happen but I would much rather see Bucky now. The political question that comes up is will Marvel make it Sam Wilson for fear of being accused of Whitewashing in the same way they were with the Ancient One in Dr Strange? I don’t believe the Cap conundrum to be Whitewashing since it’s a matter of time line but in will undoubtedly be brought up.
I say Bucky but I also don’t stand to lose money if people cry whitewash….. Again.

Anne Rice announced Saturday that she and her son Christopher have reclaimed the rights to Interview with a Vampire and are planning an open ended television series
based on the incredibly popular series of novels.
Rice called into Entertainment Weekly for a phone interview to go over the plans and excitement for the project. According to the ew.com interview they are planning on starting with the second book in the series The Vampire Lestat, starting with his transformation into a vampire and going from there.
Rice also mentioned that there is no actual finish line for the series, stating that the first book will probably run over the first 2 seasons of the show and will be staying true to the novel. Son Christopher Rice will be taking the lead on the show as executive producer with Anne assisting him where needed and that they plan to be involved in every aspect of the series including casting.
Casting was originally an issue with the movie Interview with a Vampire as Anne Rice was displeased with the choice of Tom Cruise to play the Aristocratic Lestat, but after seeing the finished product was pleased with Cruises performance.
The mother and son team are currently working on writing a pilot for the series with hopes that a network will pick it up and allow this beautifully written series of novels to be seen in all its glory on the small screen and told to a whole new generation of vampire lovers. Lets hope that network that picks this up is of the HBO or Netflix variety so that the novels can be given their just due of beauty and brutality.
Star wars has done it again. Pre-sale tickets went on sale Sunday night/Monday at midnight and the movie ticket site crashed and lagged.
Deadline.com reported that the website movietickets.com has said that since the opening of sales Rogue One has dominated ticket sales at 76% of total sales for the site with Moana coming in second place at 5%. That’s a staggering number.
The movie which is a prequel to A New Hope, centers around Jyn Erso; a criminal in the past who is recruited to lead a team of miscreant rebels put into action to steal the plans for the Death Star.
Rogue One is tracking at 130 million for the domestic opening weekend. I’m going to make my prediction at 170 million.
What is your prediction for opening weekend numbers? Leave a comment and let me know.
And “may the force be with you… Always”
“Highlander” gets a shot of fast paced action.
The long in process and long awaited reboot of the action fantasy classic brings in director Chad Stahelski of “John Wick” and its forthcoming sequel fame. What does this mean for the reboot? Insane action, great fights and a fast paced story that will reinvigorate the universe and the Clan MacLeod.
A similar “Highlander” with a new life.
This reboot has been in the works since around 2008 and has had a few stars linked to it and then broken away from it as well. There is no one attached to the project to play the lead character of Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. Ryan Reynolds was attached at one point and has since moved on from it. Tom Cruise has also been rumored to be attached as well but that is unconfirmed. Cinemablend.com reports that Dave Bautista, from Guardians of the Galaxy, is attached to play the lead villain originally played by Clancy Brown. Bautista seems the perfect fit to play the Kurgan, a brooding hulk of an immortal man. No news on who would play Ramirez, the quick witted trainer and immortal originally played by Sean Connery. Perhaps they will cast someone of Latino descent to play the character now rather than Whitewashing it with a name star. The project has also had a slew of directors attached that have left including Justin Lin, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and Cedric Nicolas-Troyan who went on to direct “Huntsman: Winter War”. Based on that directorial debut, losing Cedric Nicolas-Troyan may have been a blessing in disguise.
“John Wick” directing duo have an amazing couple of months.
Directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have the sequel to the hit movie starring Keanu Reeves premiering early 2017, Leitch was just announced as the new director of “Deadpool 2” taking over after Tim Miller left the project and now Stahelski taking over “Highlander”. Now we know what to expect from the reboot, eye popping sword play, fast paced story and brutal action. All in the name of “there can be only one”.
”That’s my secret, Captain: I’m always angry.”
That’s the words of Bruce Banner just before he makes a controlled change into the Hulk. And I’m staring to understand the complexity of that statement. When I first heard I thought to myself that there’s no way that someone is angry all the time. No way. But that was a cool fucking line.
I was wrong. The older I get the angrier I am at most times. Not all the time, but most of them I am angry and it shows through. Like the smile is just a mask that melts away. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not depressed, I’m not emo. I’m just angry all the time. It’s always there. Waiting to rear its head. That’s actually when I feel the most balanced. The most comfortable in my own skin. I’ve gone from being a happy go lucky guy in my early twenties to a mad son a bitch in my late thirties.
The thing that is most interesting is that is what makes me happy. The anger reminds me that I’m alive. Reminds me that blood flows through me still. I feel stagnant and out of place when I am complacent and smiling. Doesn’t feel right. Even people who know me are weirded out by me being in a “good mood”. What they aren’t realizing is that my mood is one hundred percent great when I am angry.
My favorite part is the fact that I don’t give 2 fucks who knows I am angry, because you see I am a realist all the time, I don’t sugar coat, I don’t compliment for everyday normal shit. I will congratulate for someone making sergeant in the police force, that took work and determination. I will not congratulate for someone getting pregnant. What am I supposed to say? Congratulations, you found the hole and didn’t pull out. This is why I don’t have a lot of friends. A fact that I am perfectly fine with. Fuck more friends, people are the fucking worst.
So if some of my rants sound angry, or I come across like a real asshole that’s because I am. And I don’t care who knows it and I couldn’t give less of a fuck about your feelings. I used to say that I hate stupid people, I was completely wrong….. I hate all people.
Go fuck yourself.
i keep hearing and seeing people having conversations about there being too much violence in entertainment today, be it movies or tv. now i will agree that there is an amazing amount of violence in both genres, do i believe it to be excessive? no i do not.
when you look at certain movies the amount of violence can be excessive and jaw dropping but lets be honest, have you seen the world that we live in today? there is violence around every corner, turn on the news , there is rape and murder and abuse around every corner in real life. movies arent glorifying it, they are making current comments on society. they are taking liberties in some of the ways that the violence is displayed and exagerrating the way these things happen but seriously, watch a person get shot in a movie and then see live footage of a person getting shot, the reality is that the actual shooting is way more brutal and painful to watch. the real pain, blood, gore by far trumps anything that a studio could come up with in a cg program or even old fashioned effects.
ultimately , complaining about movies and tv glorifying and influencing people to participate in violence is ridiculous. if you want to find out real violence all you have to do is open your eyes in todays society, you will see the things that influence movies to show violence, art imitating life….not the other way around.
sad society we live in, everyone wants an excuse as to why people do evil things……..maybe humans are just evil.
When did the Thanksgiving holiday become one of the biggest shopping days of the year? Don’t get me wrong, I love saving money, I love 150 dollar 96 inch television sets. I also love Thanksgiving, we’ll sort of, I really don’t give a Rats ass about the holiday itself it is after all just another day. But I do love having the day off of work and lounging around, eating way too much and then napping.
Then came big Commerce and commercials and Internet sales, away went the family portion of the holiday and in came stores opening at 7pm Thanksgiving night. What happened to nostalgia, people? It used to be that stores competed for the earliest opening on Friday morning,not Thanksgiving morning!
So while some people will be rushing to the store for doorbusters at 8am Thanksgiving morning (the real cutthroat dickheads) I will be sleeping in for awhile and then I will welcome in the holiday shopping season by sitting my big fat ass on the couch and going to amazon. Fuck all you people, I’d much rather wallow in my own filth at home on my couch than to have to deal with all you sweaty ass, stinky fucking people out in the real world. Seriously, that thing with the water that sprays on you and that stuff that is bar shaped….. Use them. It’s a day of shopping not a greased pig catch. Nobody wants to smell your festering taint odor.
It seems that we live in the age of Obsession. People do not seem to be happy unless they are completely obsessed and entrenched in something, anything, be it television shows, social media, their “cause” or any other stupid shit that they can get offended about.
Let’s start with television. I can’t discount how enthralling that a great TV show or movie can be, I’m guilty of it myself. However just getting enthralled in a show is normal, it gives you an escape, something that makes it so you don’t have to deal with your problems for a couple hours or so a week. I say a couple hours because you will spend an hour or so watching it then an hour or so talking about it. There’s nothing wrong with this as it levels out your problems and the ability to escape and not worry about anything. That’s healthy.
Then there is Obsession. There are different levels of this experience. Maybe you watch a couple times, pick out some stuff, read about it a little, post about it a little and have conversations about it, again it’s not unhealthy but maybe it’s a little more time than what you should spend on it. I don’t see where there is a real issue here.
The issue comes in where you don’t think about anything else, you start to get offended by things in the show, about the show, other people’s opinions and in general anyone or anything that doesn’t correlate with your way of thinking. You go to work, get in an argument about last night’s episode, which was clearly boring, but you feel the need to defend it because you are personally offended that maybe not everyone likes it. You sit down and post a huge post about how people are stupid and just don’t understand the show, how you are in a terrible mood because of these people. You search out cute memes, pictures, swoon, and talk about the horrible things you would love to happen to you at the hands of certain people in the show. You send death threats and hatred to people because their character on the show did something to your favorite character on the show. This is Obsession. Not healthy escape, pure obsessed ridiculousness.
People need to get their heads out of their assessment and look around, maybe a little less Obsession and a little more real experience would make this world a better place. But fuck it, not buttfuck it, perverts, without people getting offended and obsessed I wouldn’t have much to bitch about.
Carry on weirdos.
Thats right , i said mens room, not universal bathroom facility so as to not offend anyone of any gender specification ,race, breed, or jello consistency .
Why do some guys feel the need to stand at a urinal directly beside me in a bathroom that has 10 urinals and no one else in the bathroom. scoot the fuck over, and dont look at me, ask me how im doing, say “whats up” or anything at all for that matter. i came in here to piss not make a new friend who bonds over schmeckel hands. stop it, it’s weird.
Dont sit in the stall directly next to me when there are 7 stalls open for you to go amnd grunt that grumper out of you. you in no way need to sit next to me and strain,accidently kicking my foot in the process…theres no glory hole, keep all your fucking parts to yourself. And courtesy flush….fuck you, i will not courtesy flush, i happen to like sitting and stewing in my own funk, it deters people from sitting near me. if you are not a fan of my aroma then you should probably pinch it off and wipe it up and get the fuck out of the bathroom. im staying, not flushing and enjoying the browns trip to the super bowl.
Do not ever….ever ask if im going to be much longer. i got here before you, i won. i will sit in that fucking stall until the next presidential election if i want. deal with it and duck walk your ass over to another bathroom.
Aim. for the love of all that is unholy and foul. Aim. i shouldnt have to disenfect the toilet seat or its surrounding areas before i sit down. piss in the toilet and put your ass down, shitting on the walls is not amusing for anyone .especially me when i have a badger 3/4 of the way out of its cave and i open the stall door to see that someone has yashitakied all over every square inch of porcelain.
these are just a few of the rules of mens rooms etiquette. follow them and you will see that less people will think you are the fucking weirdo who wants to make crapping buddies .
you know ive been sitting here stressing over what to write next and what the theme of my blog should be about. ive been stressing over capitalization and proper punctuation, proper grammar and spelling. ive come to a conclusion. Fuck That.
im not going to stress over this stupid shit any longer. No themes, no making sure everything is perfect and absolutely no fucking holding back. You see i get really bored trying to stick to 1 theme and eventually my shit just stops being interesting and entertaining. i thought i just figured out this laptops spell check and punctuation check….i was sorely mistaken.
so strap in and grab something alcoholic, unless you are an alcoholic in which case shut the fuck up, i shouldnt have to change my ways because of your fucking problems. Anyway get ready (damn it, it capitalized for me again) for a really wild ride.
