New Radio Show Sunday and one more Talk Shoe Promo. No MNN Live, it's my weekend off.
Looks like The Rock has pulled it off and Ptich 2 and Mad Max are rounding off the top 3, speaking of which.....
Thank you Tomorrowland for tanking at the Boxoffice. And that's Disney reasoning for cancelling Tron 3. Now that's strike 2 for Director Brad Bird. Better go bck to animation.
The film that grew legs. Meaning it still pulling in theaudiences after a couple of weeks instead of opening big andthen disappearing twice as fast as the others. And Edited by a female no less. And the real hero of the movie is Charlize Theron. Has that for a macho movie, lol. Girl Power all the way.
Trip down memory lane for those who grew up in the 80's. The tag line that descirbes this video is dead on along with a 80's Saturday morning cartoon segment (really bad drawing) and The Hoff sing the end song! Yes the Knight Rider car makes a cameo, lol. All in good cheesy fun. Something to start the weekend if you haven't decided which film to see if you haven't seen it. Go Mad Max!!!
I'm surprisd this isn't being release as a 3D format like they did with JUrasaic Park. It's for the better. I remember seeing this in the neighborhood theatre, that's no more. The audience yelled and clapped when the shark blew up at the end back in 1975. Yep the audience was crazyback then. Same when Godzilla flew at the end of GZ VS The Smog Monster. Can never forget the those memories. See photo below of the Essex theatre down by the lower eastside.
This article cracks me up. Talk about covering their asses with their predictions. See! Even they don't know what to make of it, lol. Do people want to see something that you can see on the syfy channel countless of times or can The Rock bring them in? He couldn't do that with Hercules. I love disasters movies and who doesn't like the Rock? Yeah, I'll be there, probably in a empty movie theatre.
Pro and Cons on this new theatre attraction. Me, I couldn't care less. Nothing is going to keep a bad film from being a stinker. And a great film doesn't need all these damn gadgets. But to each their own. Good coverage in this article. The poll at the end suggests the people would see this format depending on the movie itself.
So now he's got Marvel And Star Wars under his belt along with the Apes franchise. This is so way cool. Like I said he will get a lifetime achievement Oscar for his work in Mo-Cap. He deserves it.
With most of the original cast coming back they can without Will Smith. It's about the aliens anyways. So Will Smith decided to do Suicide Squad instead of this. Does it matter?
Goofing on Will Smith with Deadshot. Great website with lots of trivia, check out all the other articles posted, this will keep you busy for the rest of the weekend.
Maybe eleven two many? Now everybody is crazy about all the characters on the show that are already on. That chubby dude getting his ass kicked in the last episode. And how about more of Peter Dinklage or more of the Blondie in the buff! C'mon like you wouldn't like to see more of that. And I wouldn't mind to see more of the dragons, Can never get enough of dragons. Ah, but that's just me.
2 movies for a dollar before 6 pm. Except for Jaws which was a whopping $3.00! This close down by the mid 80's and turned into many different things. Now a care center somewhat. This was my schooling on movies.

Vid and slides but check out the next videos that come up next. All behind the scenes stuff..
So this is the guy responsible for this, lol? Just a quick interview with him but it shows how he moved up in the CW world to producing these shows. Good for him. And those two in the background wearing red, they make a cute couple don't they? (OK, I'm being a smart ass, relax!).
A quick wrap up on the introduction of these shows. What amazes me is they have most of the cast from the original Heroes coming back. Guess that day gig didn't work out after all, lol.
That Joker car looks sweet. As these videos show, Batman in part of the film after all. These involving a chase sequence. 1 pic and 3 vids included.
This article as a vid with a different angle. Notice how slow thechase is? Trick of the trade when you see it on screen and they are driving fast as hell.
Here we go again. Milking the franchise for all its worth. And this one to be animated? Why not just released this as a straight to home video? Who's going to pay for something that you can see at home?
Guess Fox doesn't have faith in the new F4. Lets face it. Great idea the first time around but the picture did suck at best. They had no budget to make the damn thing. Just check out the features on the DVD. They had to cut croners and it showed. I'm fora remake for this for sure.
The only reason I'm posting this hear is that it means after he's done with ST\tar Trek 3 he's moving on like the rest of the cast. Then maybe Trek will go back to TV and stop with the rebooting?

Last weeks Radio show still playing, new one coming this week.
Latest Radio Show playing. New one coming this week.
Quick read. It means that Tomorrowland got Pitched Slapped at the Boxoffice. (yeah I got puns, its so easy). The Clooney flick snhould have cleared over &70M and PP2 took a big chunk out of that. The Mouse is hurting. That's what they get for a stinker. But MM Fury Road is hanging in there and still have time to clean up before those Dinosaurs take over. Talking about dinosaurs........
People are hungry for fun stuff. PP2 prove that. And after the disappointing Clooney fans are going to flock to see this. And lets not forget theres a new generation that missed the original ones when first released, not counting the 3D release.
This will be huge. But how big besides hitting the $1Billion mark will it be? What amazes me is the film only costs $150M with all those dinosaurs? Tomorrowland costs $180M and that was people standing in front of a green screen. Accountants at Disney should looking at their books so see where that money went.
Another huge hit coming down the pike. Incredible long interview with 38 pics with other shots. Very well detailed I must say.
The original film ended with him being old with a beard. So now it's a perfect fit. Being a PG-13 instead of R is a better bet. The first one really didn't need all that violence. And nowadays theycan get away with alot more than they did 20 years ago with a PG13 rating.
Well I guess Sin City 3 is out of the question. Well they took just too damn long to make that one.
I alwyas have been a Rodriquez fan. I like to see what he does with this one. One thing for sure it won't be a 200M blow it. This doesn't need to be an overblown Indy Jones movie.
Note: Playing now are repeats of last week RAdio Show and Promo. No MNN show this weekend
so hopefully we'll do a Talk Shoe Radio on Saturday since Sunday I have to be in the music studio which is seperate from the MNN Shows. More this weeks blog.

Clooney crashes not only here but overseas also. The mouse got bit in the ass and he don't like it.
Thanksguys for loading this up! 4 out of 5.
Mini-review. Same style as Arrow and Flash and ti shows as CBS owns those two shows. The main problem is just way to much information crammed in one episode. Example: The making of her suit is so rushed in one minute that they couldn't bother with details on the materials used. The Second BIG problem is the special effects. They look cheap! Damn it! Put more money into this will ya?
But it is a pilot and these things can be fix. But it is the same style as The Flash which is great and can fit along side with those shows. Well somebody couldn't wait to see it, lol, who ever posted this or somebody is pissed of at CBS. Either that or it's a ploy to get an audience response so they have time to retool the show like replacing some of the cast which are good as it is. Especially a grown up
James Olsen, not Jimmy.
Well they got Flash right for the most part and that's why Supergirl is modeled so much like Flash. Can you blame them, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Now tell that to the guys doing the Superman movies.
Wow, Tomorrowland will get it's ass kicked by those Pitches. It won't even clear $40M for a Memorial Day weekend. Clooneys movie sucked by the way, 2 out of 5 last night. Boring and the big reveal at the end was a let down. I should have gone to see Mad Max instead for the second time.
Boxoffice predictions for the Memorial Day Weekend.With the mix reviews for Tomorrowland, will it be No. 1 and the Poltergeist for No. 2 considering that is going down as a bad remake. Nobody knows.
Over 40 movies covered here with summary along with tidbits on behind the scenes.
Well somebody couldn't wait to see it, lol. Either that or it's a ploy to get an audience response so they have time to retool the show like replacing some of the cast.
Live tomorrow on Saturday at 5pm. Click on the icon to see the show.

Well most of the shows are done with the season and Dave says goodye. Next show topic for the radio show before the live show on MNN this Saturday.
Review of the show which is broken down in order with the videos. My fav was the Foo Fighters ending the show with Everlong while showing vids and pics throughout the years including Andy Kaufman getting bitch slapped at 1:40 mark. Multi-repeat and pause is necessary to view it all. I mean it was a lot. Nicely done Letterman. Has anyone found me on that Thanksgiving Special? And by the way I never saw the clip myself. Go figure.
So the three raptors got names. Kinda cute. Hopefully there will be a lot of action with some intense scenes. Hopefully the movie will be good period.
More pics which looks like the same day of the shoot from the previous post.
Note: Radio show then the MNN show and this blog will be udpated tomorrow since it was a slow news day.
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Do not read the following 2 links if you haven't seen the show yet:
Well somebody had to go I guess so this makes sense. Not to surprised considering.
Nice recap of the show with stills in order of the plot as it went along. For me the last 15 minutes was a rocker. This is what you call a finale ending. Did anyone notice the line "May the speed force be with you"?
Mini vid plus some behind the scenes of the cast on the set. This still looks like an Avenger picture than a Captain America flix.
Again with the Green Goblin but seeing Matthew taking the role would be fun and different. Let's not forget he started in Texas Chainsaw 3 as part of the crazy family and worned a suit in Wolf of Wall St. so this wouldn't be a stretch for him.
As I said in a previous blog the Hathway Monster Moive was a ripoff of the Hensei series when one of the characters can mind talk with Godzilla. Well now Toho seems to think so. Or maybe they read my blog, lol. Who knows...
Tuesday, May 19, 2015
No bloated over 2 hours running time is fine with me. I mean wehave a trilogy to tell the arc of the story. And Lando is not out of the count. Let's not forget, Ford Han Solo always wanted to die and there is still that rumour going on with the new story. So who would fly the M Falcon but the original owner Lando himself which he flew in Return of the Jedi. So this would make sense not that I would want Solo to die. We would like to see him again to finish off this new trilogy, right?
The Untold Story of ILM. Wow, what a big article. You might want to read this on the weekend. Many inerviews including those on the cover shot. I remember getting the book about ILM called The Art of Spocial Effects which I still have to this day. There has been different covers since then.
Some spoilers here about the ending if you haven't yet seen the movie. The actual take for this past weekend is $45M. The 3 day weekend will help even more as Tomorrowland is getting mixed reviews. But that sure didn't hurt Pitch Perfect 2 did it? What they don't mention is that the top 3 films, Pitch, Max, Ultron together made over $150M on a none holiday weekend. People are coming to the theatres indroves.. Now the experts are keeping quiet here aren't they?
CAn we say cute overload? Something very original and it will be a huge hit.2 vids and 38 screen shots. Nice.
Fun cast with Director Columbus (Harry Potter) should be a hit. My probelm with this is not the concept (whihc I love as wacky as it sounds) but execution. Too much of a Ghostbusters ripoff. But all of our favorites from the day are here. It sure brings make memories of these games. Well at least this trailer makes the film look better. But I don't expect Wreck it Ralph here. Now that was fun.
The big summer blockbuster that was bumped to......October? Not even for the year end holidays.
Well the trailer explains a lot. Besides some money shots it looks like crap. Didn't they get the memo? Nobody was asking for this. Hugh better think twice about retiring from X-Men and Wolverine all together. He still got a few runs with that character.
Monday, May 18, 2015
Already the top 10 of all time but where will it land? Will it pass F7 and tied with Avengers for the No. 3? It looks that way. Considering F7 is just $30M away from the Top 3 spot. Memorial Day weekend we will see the fina tally on the competition. But of course Star Wars is going to change all that.
A few shots from a womans point of view. That takes a lot of guts, male or female to pull off some of these stunts. Couldn't pay me enough.
A spinoff would be a great idea. He needs a franchise himself instead of saving the day with sequels.
In the meantime he can keep on doing these even as a crossover doing cameos in later sequels of No. 8.
2 quick mini-videos filmed in Africa. They got to filming this real fast. Marvel is taking no chances on falling on behind wth the scedule.
No video here but a couple of good closeups on the set.
By this point it's just sounds like to much covering up on what happened. All different angles to the story. But even when people hae to be reminded this is the guy who played BAne in Batman, when I mention Star Trek:Nemesis, people just go Wha........? The Trek movie that nobody saw and Trekkis refuse to mention. Believe or not, at Boxofficemojo, it took months fro them to reveal what the final tally was, guess pressure from the studio, that the final take was just $60M. Ouch!
A few shots but Warners took down the video already. Well it was on this morning. Basterds. It looked cool. Somebody else will have it on Youtube. Just have to be quick about it.
Note: Still working on those radio shows. And more FlickR pics will also be posted.

$70M for the weekend ofr Pitch Perfect 2. Boxoffice Mojo didn't even bothered to predict the weekend cause even they didn't know the outcome. They are suppose to be the experts. This boggles the mind. But $44M is not shabby, anything less than $40 would have been a wipeout considering the price tag. More on the radio show this week..
How the heck did this happened? Not even the "experts" thought the movie could pull this off. Even top of the bad reviews on Pitch compare to the rave reviews of Mad Max. But Max will still do good next weekend while Pitch will have a huge dropoff. And on top of that Max will do huge internationally. My review coming soon.
Now where in the top 10 All time is this going to land at? And close will it get to pass F7.
This linki includes another gallery of 83 pics, for those who can't get enough.
Top 10 Quotes from all 4 movies. My favorite is fromthe new one at No. 10.
Video Feature on Director George Miller with scenes from MM Fury Road. It also covers the supporting cast including some of the cuties who were not even born when Road Warrior was made!
Video Feature on the Movie's Villain Immortan Joe in MM Fury Road,
Looks like we have a wiiner! The actor from Ender's Game and Hugo might be the new Spiderman.
Filming has started on Capt. America Civil War so time has run out to find the new Spiderman.
What I love aobut these guys you never what language they speak but you still understand what's going on. Very international and very funny. It's just summer dumb fun. Nothing more.
Another western to make a comeback, that's 4 movies now that are western based. Makes sense for Jackie since Rush Hour franchise is now a tv show. Bring back the western!
Our premiere live show on MNN is now playing on our Youtube page.
You can also see the video posted on yesterday's blog.
I'll be doing a test run on Talk Shoe Radio with a new phone line, to see how that works.
More on this updated blog tomorrow.

Live show Youtube video included below links. New Radio show coming this weekend.
More behind the scenes on the making of Mad Max. So far the reviews have been killer. Check out this review, a 10 out of 10:
Also includes a separate video review, link included in the article.
I included this as it will have a quick mention on the show. Includes all channels on regular tv.
This is one heck of a cast and crew. Well that got Flash and Arrow right, how can they go wrong with this? Looks like they got another hit on their hands.
Hopefully it won't suck like the movie. Actually it a pretty funny film so bad it's good kinda way but I that's not what the filmmakers had in mind.
Politics at play here but who ever thought this show would go on forever. But it is kind of cold when your voice over can be replace with another actor after you perfected those characters.
Double dipping again? How many copies do I haave of Star Wars anyways? After releasing them on HD digital? I can hear George Lucas laughing his head off. And by the way what happened to all those 4K releases.
This is so funny. Even the Russians recognize crap when they see it coming. This movie was awful. Top 10 worst. Hopefully there won't be a third.
Never thought he was that funny. What was even less funny is when I was on the show without my permission. Yep that's right. I was on one of the Thanksgiving specials. Remember when he had the camera out in the streets and made remarks about people passing by? Anyone has a copy of that try to find me in the special.
Below is our Live show from May 9. Video is slightly distorted due to processing.

The imagination in building these cars is wild. With very few CG added (mostly the clouds).
Forget about Pitch, Witherspoon comedy tanked and so will this. The big question now stands will the Furious 7 fans be with this or will The Avengers:Ultron will get repeaters. That is the showdown. But the disavantage for Max is that it's rated R and does not have the 3D cheat. Either way if it's No. 1 I'll be happy.
Stunt hiring. Maybe but lets face it. She deserved to be nominated for Selma as Director and did not.
Whether it'll be a female, black or whatever title she's given, it would be great to expand on the boys club known as Marvel. And watch DC follow this up as not to be left behind with this idea.
They finally got around to making this a movie. It was a fun game and they even got the original voices from the game to be in the movie. They even got Stallone in this. Why not? He played an animated Ant in Antz with Woody Allen out of all people. That was a fun film if you haven't seen it.4 out of 5. Bettter than Bugs, 3 out of 5, which was more for kids.
Tomorrowland 2 minute behind the scenes featurette. at 1:20 one person mentions science fiction to science fact. That's been our motto for our live show at the very beginning. And why I love Sci-fi over other genres to this very day.
They need classic superstars like Stevie Wonder and Prince on this show. While I like Chris Rock and Alicia Keys tese are not Big Names as the article states. Look how many "Big Names" started showing up on American Idol and that show tanked to getting cancelled. See ya! But then again this show doesn't need "names" to keep the audience interested. The cast they have is good enough.
Finally uploaded on 2015 season premiere show after some link problems.

I always loved this character even when Arnold did it, that movie is another matter, but this second season is really lining up some favorite villains. And I wouldn't mind seeing Fish coming back somewhere down the line. She's not an orginal but she really added something to this first season.
The reviews are coming in and they are fantastic. Hope thye add up at the boxoffice. Tom Hardy has been signed to do more sequels, it be a same it doesn't go forward with those.
A case in point that the weekends boxoffice for Avengers was nothing to talk about.
Now hte big creatures are coming out to the big screen. Jumping on the bandwagon with an idea which is directly from te "Godzilla Hensei Series". with the mental connection angle. It figures.
This should have been on the list 5 years ago instead we got Cars 2 and Brad tried to make John Carter work. The sooner the better before this becomes old news.
Note: Still having a tech problem on posting our MNN show on Youtube. Still working on that.

New radio show coming this week.
$77M is not to shabby. I'm surprise it made that much since I called it at $50M but then again the studios were calling it at $80-88M so they came in short in the accounting department. Now the real challenge is will it hold against Mad Max 3 this coming weekend. That should be interesting.
Now here is their predictions and already $600M for Avengers Ultron is a stretch. Then again last year BOMojo got 8 out of 12 wrong on what they thought were going to be the big money makers.
More on this on a new Radio Show this week.
"Piracy is better than an Emmy" for generating awareness. What's funny is that the ratings for this show is huge and like Furious 7 also pirated all over the world is in the top 5 of all time boxoffice.
Go figure. You notice the studio has been very quiet on that topic when it comes to F7.
Mini video with Will shooting guns. Still not sold on this idea but it's still has a great cast.
They just couldn't resist could they? lol. But hong long would this last? Well as long they they can keep coming up with sequels that the audience will still keep on paying I guess.
And how many times has he played God or a leader of some degree? Just saying, lol.
Note: For those who missed out live show on Saturday I'm in the process of uploading it to youtube which is taking longer than usual.

New Blog Talk Radio Show now playing..Tomorrow Live at 5pm on http://www.mnn.org/
So far $21M for Friday. They predicted over $80M and I said $50M on the radio show. So far it looks in between. Doesn't matter whose right, my point is the dropoff as there won't be repeats and after that cast announcement for Civil War some might just wait to see that movie. I forgot to add many also find out who are the new Avengers and there goes the surprise at the end of Ultron.
We'll see the final tally on Sunday afternoon. For final results on all the movies you can go to http://www.boxofficemojo.com/
While the article makes a point about burnout, the main problem is a no repeats performance. The cast announcement killed that yesterday as everyone is saying that's the Avengers movie that should have happened. While Ultron is fun and all, how many times will you see it? I saw twice (second was a free pass) and getting the blu-ray but that's it for me. As far as Thor and Hulk not being in it, they need a break. The real treat is seeing Spiderman with the Avengers where he belongs. Enough with those damn solo movies.
Nice 2 minute video with more scenes from the movie. These stunts look crazy. Fast Furious fans have to save this to get this franchise going. But Road Warrior with Mel Gibson is a must to see before seeing this fro sure.
Excellent cast and Kurt Russell as he played Wyatt Earp in Tombstone, one of his performances ever.
Will Tarantino's second crack at the western be the charm at bringing back the western?
With the size of this cast they should just call this The Avengers: Civil Wars. Main issue, how much screen time is everyone going to get. Man, this film crowded with names.
More coverage here with more cast details. This cast is even bigger than Ultron. Yikes this is going to be huge at the boxoffice. Who wouldn't want to see this? Poor Thor, he is going to need Loki big time.
Personally I couldn't care less what cameras they use as long as the damn film is good. But surprisingly Ultron grossed $25M using this Imax technology so if it works, what the heck.
I never even heard of these awards but Furious 7 still goin strong with it's wins. Who would have thought?
Here's something new to follow. Obviously Ultron is there but they even have a TV ratings system, click link in the article, and both Flash and Arrow are in the top 10. Cable listings has both games of Throne and Walking Dead in the top 10, Duh! and Fallon leads in the Late night shows.
Great article on the history of this film that was never finished. This is one of Spielberg's favorite directors. He practically stole that Raiders of the Lost Ark final sequence in the warehouse from Citizen Kane's ending. How come he doesn't put in the rest of the money himself? Yo Steve, what's up?
Wednesday, May 06, 2015
Ford is to old and he's busy with Blade Runner. Pratt or Cooper would be perfect for the role. But Willow and Radioland Murders as remakes? Why?
Will this die quickly if there's no repeats from the audience and will Mad Max kill it the next weekend? The big question for the month.
Good article which explains the difference between the directors on the list. That new 4 story arc is nonsense. Just put in The Avengers and call it a day. The high school days is a waste of time, sounds more like TV and Smallville then a actual movie. Another idea that sucks. Greed, just plain greed.
I thought this was pretty funny. Like most movies nowadays they try to sneak them in or the case of Man of Steel, with that huge sears sgin in the back, it's right in your face. You know, I didn't even notice most of these in this version. And I still don't care.
Peter Jackson is involve with this but not the movie. Unless he's a consultant on the movie. universal had a King Kong set that burned to the ground so it's nice they have a new one to pay tribute to the big guy. Know.....where the hell is that Godzilla VS. King Kong remake movie?
Catch Up News:
This is one hell of a lineup. The sotry is simple enough and with a great cast like this how can they screw his up. But I'm not a fan of Fugua work. He's no John Sturges that's for sure. And people are just not crazy for westerns nowadays considering JJ Abrahams mentioned Westerns at the Star Wars Con and nobody paid attention to that detail.

Has this guy watch any Anime movies at all? A lot of them have Kick Ass chicks. There was even a american name filmed called Kick Ass. Hello! As far as the messages go:
1. Electra, Marvel was still struggling to get its roots down.
2.3. Both made by Warners/DC what do you expect and they still can't get it right.
CEO has to catch up with the times and look who he's talking to, an exec from Sony! Jeez....
11 Minute video of mixing the sound on the Avengers Ultron. Scroll down and you also get making of clips Godzilla, Transformers, Instellars and others. All behind the scenes featurettes with scenes from the movies.
Salute to Stuntman Bobby Holland Hanton stuntman of Avengers with interviews along with pictures and a mini video at the end of the article.
They put Heimdall in the halluciantions sequence but not Loki? Jeez that was dumb. No offense to Elba but bla..bla...bla...Ok Never mind, got it. What a better way to sell the Blu-ray edition but to include Loki's deleted scene. Oh silly me...
"Meesa no wanna care" He should have joined the darkside, now would have been funny.
Loved that last episode and even tho that "Babe" thing got annoying. Maroni deserve that shot in the head. Penguin and Fish showdown was cool but she could swim her way out of that. But the main thing was the door to the Batcave? What the heck, did he's father built that? Dad was a superhero?
Guess we have to wait for Season 2. Same Bat time, Same Bat channel.
Note: Running late posting sl some articles are being postpone until tomorrow in time for that new Radio Show I promised since the Ice Age. It's coming folks.
Monday, May 04, 2015
New Radio show to be posted this week.
Scroll down to see the video to go with those pictures.
Couple of pics including Lupita as a pirate and the group she hangs out with. Reminds me of Jabba's Place in Return of the Jedi. Very cool.
Inernational update with F7 still collecting huge with another week to goin china to collect another $100M to beat A3. So now that question is, will it? Below is the U.S. boxoffice news.
Sure blame it on the fight. There was all of Sunday to catch up on this movie and with all the spoilers all over the internet some just figured to see it the next weekend. And forget about the repeats, that will be very few. Now where in the Top 10 All Time Boxoffice is this going to land. That's the main question now.
About that one Avenger dying, so why didn't Scarlett bring him back to life. Kind of left you hanging there. I thought it was a waste to begin with but I get Weadon's point. But still....
Wow, that's a lot of bricks. Looks great doesn't it? Wish I had that job. Sure beats office work.
Where is the BB8 robot, that's the one that is goingto be a huge seller. Everything else, well that has to wait. There's no more room to store this stuff. And I can't afford a warehouse.
Anyone for a lesson in Japanese for Star Wars? 10 words to start you off.
