Saturday Sweets

Standard

HELLO! It’s Saturday which means all ya’ll are 1. In bed with a headache. 2. In bed with someone you don’t remember. 3. Have your shit together and busy closing cases at work while getting sweet overtime hours like me.

You may also be wondering if there are any entertainment updates to catch up on. And because I’m the caring person that I am I decided to take a break from my important business to bring you the latest;)

Scream Queens

Capture

Scream Queens official Instagram posted this pic of Brad FalchukRyan Murphy and some other guy they didn’t bother to name so neither will I. Looks like writing has officially begun on the second season of Fox’s Scream Queens. I am BEYOND thrilled. We also got confirmation that Miss Oberlin herself Emma Roberts will be back for the next season. Now all I need is confirmation that Chanels #3 & 5 Billie Lourd and Abigail Breslin will return and I can breath easy. No word on when production will officially begin. Here’s hoping to more casting and story news in the coming months

X Files

the-x-files-variety-cover-story

As a huge X files fan I was beyond excited when I heard they were bringing the series back for a short run. A six episode 10th season. The response to the mini series has been overwhelmingly positive from the fans while critics have had harsher words for the reunion of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. However the the show has scored through the roof in viewership. So it really comes as no surprise that FOX wants to move forward with a second mini season. Even talks of another movie have been going around.

That being said the biggest issue FOX will have in getting the next season together comes from the cast themselves. While all seem game to come back for more, scheduling them all together is what will be the problem. Gillian Anderson is a Brit now and lives on the other side of the pond with her family, she’s already expressed her feelings on uprooting her life to continue shooting in Vancouver. Here’s what a few FOX big wigs had to say thanks to Movieweb.

“The biggest impediment to going forward with ‘The X-Files’ is the schedule of David and Gillian and, to an extent, Chris…but even the other night at the premiere, we were all laughing and joking that we would love to do this again. So we would be on board if schedules can be worked out.”
I’m sure we can expect much more news following Mondays season Finale.
Captain America: Civil War
Thanks to JoBlo take a look at Empire’s EXCLUSIVE Captain America: Civil War cover. Here we see Steve Rogers face off against supposed friend Tony Stark. It’s a pretty bad ass image and will sure to sell big. The early buzz for this film has been incredibly positive with most touting this as the best Marvel film to come out so far. Even the performances are being praised, that’s saying a lot coming from a comic book movie. I cannot wait until the April 29th to witness what is sure to be a game changing showdown for the Avengers. Take a look at the cover below

Home Release Recommendation
film_crimson_peak_PosterDom1
I thought I’d start a section where I recommend new  Blu-Ray or DVD releases. This month i HIGHLY recommend you check out Guillermo del Toro’s latest Crimson Peak. It’s an absolutely gorgeous Gothic romance/horror. From the costumes to the music to the cinematography there’s is so much to take in while viewing this film. The story is a pretty basic ghost story with a few dark twists and turns. The performances from  Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston are sublime as well.

Ghost Busting

Standard

ghostbusters2016

Good Morning and Happy Hump Day! Since there seem to be a heavy flow of news the past few weeks for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters I thought I’d discuss what we know so far.

Since the announcement that the next Ghostbusters movie would be led by an all female cast, the nerd population has collectively scrutinized every single detail to become available. Not too mention the hundreds of small town hicks (who’ve only ever felt the inside of a goat) that took to twitter to bash the very idea of a WOMAN doing THEIR Ghost – Busting.

Ghostbusters-2016-2

I however welcome this small but fresh switch up to the Ghostbusters formula. Especially with a cast that includes Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy,Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon AND one of my many husbands Chris Hemsworth.

MV5BMTQ1OTM0MjEwOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNTQwNzI1._V1_UY317_CR1,0,214,317_AL_

As well as confirmed cameos by returning cast mates Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd,Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts and one of my many wives Sigourney Weaver.

ghostbusters-2016-chris-hemsworth

How can you not be even just a little excited? I absolutely LOVE the fact they took the gender swap thing all the way and cast Chris Hemsworth as the new receptionist. Who may be getting some action in the film as well since he was seen riding the Ecto 2 – A retrofitted Motorcycle- on the set during filming.

Here is the OFFICIAL Synopsis –

With paranormal activity on the rise, a Columbia University academic, her ghost-chasing friend, the friend’s business partner, and an MTA employee join forces to bust ghosts and save New York

Not much we can really gleam from that however more tidbits of the story have been released since. Kristen Wiig will be playing a teacher at a prestigious school who’s reputation is ruined and must join forces with past colleagues to regain former glory and also rid the city of the ghosts of real historical criminals. The main ghostly villain of the film will be- voiced/played? by Neil Casey.

When I first heard that the villains this time around would be former real life criminal I was a little underwhelmed. Then again how could you top the OG Ghostbusters antagonist? And Stay Puft anyone? I’ll wait to see how these ghosts are uh – fleshed out to make any kind of judgment. One SUPER interesting rumor going around is that a familiar face may be making an appearance for the FIRST time on screen.

 

cbm4twvxeayba2hTake a look at the newest poster for the film. Not really anything outstanding just a glossy up do of the original logo. But whats this? take a look below and you can see one of the figurines based off the characters in the film. Looks pretty similar right? It seems like Mr. Feig may have decided to give life to the logo’s ghost design.

The teaser for the trailer was also released a few days ago and you can view it below. The first full length trailer is said to arrive in March. Until then all we can do is speculate. I’m hoping that with the first trailer a lot of peoples worries will be laid to rest, if not, it will surely double the amount of hater-aid going around on my twitter feed.

Ghostbusters will be released on July 15th 2016.

Bitch-troverted. An Introverts Tale

Standard

So I run into this issue a lot in my fast paced and glamorous life. Why am I such a bitch? Well one explination I can give is that I’m just simply a bitch for the sake of being a bitch and I’m sure most people who meet me would have this first impression. True it takes awhile before someone actually see’s the REAL me (Que slow piano music) and I’m just gonna throw out some reasons as to why I am the way I am.

Realize that none of this is based on scientific fact and I didnt do any kindof research   (I’m American) so everything I’m saying here is based on my own opinion and feelings.

To start I was picked on like crazy all through elementary school to the point of almost being seriously harmed. So by the time I got to highschool I had already developed an outer shell. You see I’m a total INTROVERT. I’m naturally shy and It’s not easy for me to be out spoken or quickly jump into conversations. I usually just sit back and listen when I can. I spend a lot of my time alone on purpose.

I know what your thinking – You? Someone so stylish and witty an introvert? MADNESS! But it’s true.

So because I was always super small physically compared to most of the people I was around in school I usually couldnt really defend myself in a fight. HOWEVER what I realized Is that I didnt have to if I destroyed my bullies confidence with WORDS beforehand. And thats exactly what I did. I became a wizard at finding the one comment or phrase that would rip their hearts out, embarrass or shame them. I was NEVER picked on in highchool afterwards. And here is where the Bitch in me began to blossom.

Back to the introvert thing. As i left school and started out in the real world I reverted back to my usual introverted style, MOST people after highschool get over their bullying phase so I really didnt need to defend myself in anyway. However not long after highschool I discovered a whole new set of troubles for a nerdy introvert. People dont like hanging out with other people who are quiet. It’s just natural. People in general are social beings and being such they like to laugh and talk to exuberance about nothing in particular. It’s all good as long as you participate. I dont like to participate.

This is a MAJOR issue for me still as an adult which is why the Bitch in me had to be resserected.

As an Introvert and I feel like i can safley say most intoverts feel the same way. It is so fucking annoying when your hanging out with a bunch of friends, seemngly have a great time when someone says “Your so quiet. Is Something wrong?” There Is always some jack ass who is too observant for his own good. As soon as this happens it’s pretty much game over because everyone else in the group starts to notice and it becomes a THING.

“Whats wrong with him? why isnt he talking? such a snob, whyd he even come? Total BITCH”

I can’t exaplin why I feel too shy sometimes to do anything other than observe BUT almost %100 of the time I am enjoying myself and mean no harm. But because people can’t seem to understand this or just find it annoying I now have no other choice but to retaliate with firey bitchiness. I’ve tried explaining myself to tons of people but either it comes off as an excuse or they just plain dont buy it.

So now this is typically what you can expect. To stop the constant “Whats wrong?” quetions I wear a stone cold don’t fucking talk to me cuz I’m totally better than you BITCH FACE. No one questions that. And instead of people thinking somethings wrong or sad about me now they just stay out of my way.

If that doesnt work and some queen thinks he’s found a damaged fixer upper who he can rescue I impliment that sharp tongue I picked up in highschool. “Whats wron- THATS FINNY I WAS ABOUT TO ASK YOU THE SAME THING” is typically how those conversations begin. And end.

It may seem like I’m blaming the world for my issues (I’m American) but I really do think my suroundings had SOME part in shaping my personality today. I can be super fun, I’ve learned to give a little and push my self to be less quiet and more outgoing. I’m not really that much of a bitch at heart. Just certain factors in my life have allowed that part of me to flourish. I blame the media. There i go again.

So If your hangin out with someone and notice you are doing most of the talking. BEFORE you assume the person you are with is a bitch, dumb, empty headed. Consider first maybe they are just a little introverted. And if you want to hang with us your gonna have to get used to the way we are.

Or face the chances that the person your with is ME and that if you continue to comment on my participation I will most likely reward you with a mouth full of READINGS that MAY or MAY not make you reconsider your choices in life. Or at the very least send you home crying.

Other than that I’m a totally chill guy;) Unless I’ve had a few shots of fire ball and then yeah I’m a total bitch.

To Phasma or not to Phasma?

Standard

captain-phasma_8f4ea1d7

As Star Wars : The Force Awakens was being marketed it seemed as if Gwendoline Christie’s “Captain Phasma” was being championed as the NEW Boba Fett. I was tricked just like the rest of you poor scavengers. Instead of a kickass WOMAN villain that would be sure to rain terror down upon anyone to cross the First Order we got three scenes show casing absolutely nothing about this character. She doesnt even get to fire her blaster! not even once. SMH. As far as I know Captain Phasma is a coward who instead of fighting off Finn and Han to the death, lowered the shields and then was promptly dispatched with a joke. It was pretty clear this wasn’t all we’d see of Phasma in this new series and obviously she was not killed during the destruction of Star Killer base.  Kathleen Kennedy confirmed shortly after backlash regarding the character began to flow across the internet that Phasma would have a MUCH bigger part in Star Wars 8 which began production earlier this week.

I sure as hell hope so Gurl because wasting even such an iconic design would be a total sin and slap to the face. I mean Miss Christie is phenomenal in Game of Thrones so seeing all her potential go to waste is a real shame.

Well thanks to  Movieweb and Screen Rant it appears there would have been a little more to do with this character in an apparent deleted scene. Read a quote below from one of the editors.

“There was actually a fun thing with Captain Phasma ordering all of the ships into the air, but they didn’t realize that Han and Finn had just thrown her down a garbage chute.”

 

What a revelation! NOT. Really? your telling me four scenes in total were written for this character? UGHSVILL. In my opinion they could have fixed this issue with one simple change. Remember that Storm Trooper that confronted Finn outside of Maz Kanata’s Castle? The one fans have now dubbed as TR-8R? THIS should have been Phasma. I mean it is clear as day and I’m sure SOMEONE on the writing team had to have suggested it. I know they wouldn’t have shoved aside such a sweet character for some no name trooper JUST so they could connect to an expanded universe book. Or would they? Yes TR-8R was killed by Han. But that could have been easily changed if they wanted her character to appear through out the series.

In closing Phasma is NOT Boba and until they prove otherwise she is one of the most useless character’s in the new trilogy…..So far.

Bitch Rant Over.

Good day everyone. Again I’d like to bring you some juicy MOVIE updates! This week has been overloaded with cool news about upcoming film projects, too much to put it all in one post. Ill just be covering the stand outs. ENJOY!

ALIEN: Covenant. Danny McBride

HOLY SPACE BALLS we got some casting news out of left field from MovieWeb that will no doubt be turning some heads. It seems that Danny Mcbride ( Eastbound and Down) is being courted by 20th Century Fox to star alongside Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston in Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. OK so I’m not really a fan of this guy, mostly because I’m not really into comedy which is this guys forte. I’m not going to throw a hissy fit- Yet- though. We’ve seen some pretty accomplished comedians turn out great dramatic performances so I’m optimistic. No details on who he will be playing have been released yet obviously but i think its safe to assume he will be one of the unfortunate crew mates on the doomed colony ship The Covenant.

Alien: Covenant will be released on October 6th, 2017

Battlestar Galactica13Another bit of surprising news according to The Hollywood Reporter is that Michael De Luca, Scott Stube and Dylan Clark have joined forces to produce a NEW Battlestare Galactica movie for Universal. The only story details we have is that it will be based on the original (Yawn) TV series and not the SYFY channels HIT remake of the show staring Mary McDonald and Edward James Olmos. Personally I don’t see the point. The remake series did everything it could with the story so I’m not sure where they will be taking this. And I’M sorry but your just not Battlestar without Mary McDonald as President Roslin. And that bitch (Roslin) died so that isn’t gonna happen. We shall just have to wait and see whats in store.

No release date has been announced.

Batman Vs Superman : Dawn of Justice

The final trailer for Batman Vs Superman : Dawn of Justice was released today and its giving me life. It’s a hell of a lot more action packed and makes me a lot more excited to see this movie than i was before. I’m more of a Marvel fan myself. Anyways thanks to iO9 for posting a ton of gifs featuring the trailers best moments. Check it out!

Batman Vs Superman : Dawn of Justice  will be released on March 25, 2016

Jeepers Creepers 3

Jeepers-Creepers-watermarked-742x1024FINALLY after a long gestating in development hell,we now have some more light shed on the third film in the uber creepy Jeepers Creepers series. the original stared Justin long and followed two siblings as they are stalked by a demonic creature that replaces its own body parts with the body parts of others. like Me. You can read the official film summery (which is slated for production later this year) below.

“Jeepers Creepers 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergent Tubbs teams up with a task force hellbent on destroying the Creeper for good. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.

Bloody Disgusting shared the first artwork for the film which will be financed by Myriad Picture. Take a look at the one sheet and tell me what you think (as if) below!

I want to play a game…Again.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThanks to The Tracking Board for spilling the Tea that Lionsgate has now confirmed  “Saw 8” is in the works. Titled “Saw: Legacy” with the creative duo who brought us the original “Saw” leigh (Total Babe) whannell & James Wan signed on to executive (Sit back and watch the $ signs) produce. Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (Piranha 3D) have been tasked to write. So far no release date OR story details have been released.

Pure speculation but I’d be very surprised if Tobin Bell didn’t at least make some kind of voice cameo. Whats a Saw trap without Jigsaws perfectly recited instruction played before the fun begins? NOT A SAW TRAP if you ask me. Also the only remaining character even remotely interesting that was left alive was Cary Elwes’ Dr. Gordon. Do we need more of him? I think not. I think the most obvious way to go about this sequel is to start fresh with a soft reboot. Keep Jigsaw (In a minor capacity) and bring in new faces and story points. I think its safe to say that John Kramer’s story is over and his annoying wife got exactly what was coming to her.

Maybe a copycat killer? I know I know – Scream 2 anyone? but if not that, what then? I don’t see them bringing Jigsaw back in any kind of supernatural way and continuing with his original plans would be a total bore. Hopefully now that the announcement is official more details will begin to emerge.

Quarter – life Crisis. #1

Standard

12592690_10153378311026475_7647328140886195273_nSO something happened to me a few weeks ago which sparked the idea for this post and also kept me awake at night for several days…….

I was entertaining a cute young gentleman at Castro Manor – as I do from time to time – except this guy was just a TAD younger than what I usual go for. Now almost immediately after we began to converse I remembered why I typically go for guys my age or older (Daddy issues) It was like talking to a tickle me Elmo doll that’s been kept in the attic for over a decade and has finally got the chance to spill the beans on his time locked away. BUT he was cute and I was willing to stick it out till the…end.

AND THEN IT HAPPENED.

The guy turns to me and asks how old I am….

OK first off I don’t know about you but I tend to want to know these types of things BEFORE I meet someone for the first time. And I did. I was a little surprised he hadn’t already known my age before coming over. Now when I’m asked about my age I like to be a little bitch and make the person guess. This guy guessed that I was his age (20) and I promptly laughed in his face and corrected him. I’m currently 26.

I might as well have taken out a bloody sickle and raised it over my head to strike by the reaction on this twinks face. He couldn’t believe it. It was as if I transformed into a completely different person in front of  his eyes. For the next hour he kept bringing the convo back to my age. So finally I tell this ageist that I have to take my teeth out and go to bed. I practically pushed him out the door.

SO I guess the new 35 is 26. I spent the next week staring in the mirror and wondering where it all went wrong. Am I old? does it really matter that much? It would seem I crossed the thresh hold from turning down guys because of their age, to being the one turned down (technically i was never turned down- just annoyed. Lets be clear I still got it) How tragic.

Now I’m just being dramatic here but in all seriousness it really did have an effect on me. I’ve never really thought about my age or how others would perceive it, and to be real for a sec twenty-six is NOT old. But it did mean I was OLDER. And that’s the part that was freaking me out. I AM OLDER. Suddenly saving money to buy that sweet new game has turned into saving money so i can have food and electricity. Its fucking scary as hell. I have grey hairs growing in more frequently and being at home with a good book and a glass of wine sounds so much better than a night on the dance floor. For awhile now I’ve been feeling I dunno…less cool.

But the more I think about it and the more I talk to others with similar feelings I’m realizing that I’m just growing up. Being “cool” doesn’t matter anymore. Having a job, my own place and being able to support myself. THAT’S what matters. Growing as a person and human being THAT’S cool. I think it’s pretty common these days to have a quarter life crisis. Especially when young, rich, successful celebs are shoved in our faces every day as If it were or should be the norm. I’m here to tell you its NOT.

So in closing. Yes you may no longer be 21 and those bags under your eyes are just gonna keep getting darker BUT you have money, a roof over your head and your doing it all on your own. The next time your at home doing laundry and watching Netflix on a Saturday night, and you start scrolling through Instagram: seeing all the hot young-ins wiggling around on the dance floor. Don’t feel like your missing out. You’ve been there done that. Remember that come Sunday morning everyone in those pics are going to be waking up to a nasty headache and probably a few barfs as well. Plus anyone who’s anyone knows that SUNDAY BRUNCH with friends (who you can actually hear speaking to you) and a mimosa is what’s totally IN right now anyway;)

That’s enough personal BULL. We will continue with our regular programming…for now.
