And The Winner is...?

New radio show coming this week: Oscar wrap up and news. New Live on MNN posted on Youtube.
Update: 2 new videos posted below in the bonus section: Paxton with a Kong and music video star.

Not a good sign. All across the message boards and internet, everyone agrees on 2 things: Postponing this means they got a problem on their hands. And again why are they going backwards in the timeline. Remember? To boldly go where no one has gone before like to the future? And nobody is crazy about paying for this either. Losing all around.

Previously this week;
No the title has nothing to do with KK vs Godzilla. That's about the Oscars But that's below.
Well thanks to the trailer we now know what the first half of the movie is about. It's pretty easy to figure out. And Kong still gets the girl as in all the Kong movies do. But the ending will be different from all other movies as if he doesn't get off the island and climbs a tall building. Or does he? lol.
Includes video of highlights from the show but as mentioned on our Live showJust look at all the films nominated that few people saw. How are you going to attract an audience when they couldn't care less who wins. But I do love the idea that La La Land lost. So damn overated. Still can't believe it got that many nominations.
The rest of the winners were predictable. And Denzel lost. And all my other ones I wanted to win also lost. This year was a wipe out. Well at least Suicide Squad got it for Best Makeup out of all things. For me the winner was Jimmy Kimmel. He was spot on with his comedy. And he should come back. Best part ? Bus load of tourists crashing the awards. I'll have more of a review saved for a new radio show this week.
So this is what happened. Like the last paragraph said "They had one job" in giving out the envelope and they screwed that up. Now that's funny.
"Game over man" Wow at 61 too, what a shame. But he did leave a grat bodyof work. And his family can say he was in one of the top  pictures of all time with Titanic. My favorite. The marine in Aliens.
"Why don't you make her in charge, man?"

Yep Paxton did he's own Kong movie with a remake of Mighty Joy Young. Trivia: Ray Harryhausen put down Godzilla saying it's only a guy in a suit. In this version, some scenes it's CGI  but in scenes with Joe Kong in the park (jail) it's a guy in the suit ! Yes perfomed by legendary Rick Baker.

2nd bonus
 Paxton the singer. This was the only muscic video that James Cameron ever directed. And if you look closely you will see some of the actors in Aliens in this video.
Note: Also check out "HowCan The Labouring Man Find Time For Self Culture" video which should show up in the Up Next column. He was really into music and videos for the MTV generation.

Lego Batman No. 1 for 2 Weeks

New show Live on MNN this Saturday and hopefully a radio show before then. In the Bonus section Videos of Oscars nods for SFX of Rogue One, Dr. Strange, Fantastic Beasts included.
5 out of 5. This movie had everything. Great sense of humor, something DC totally lacks. And the mishmap of concepts was perfect. This should have gotten a May release instead of getting dumped in February. More reviews coming this week.
4 out of 5. Brutel, violent, high body count. Loved it. Bring on No. 3. In another interview he expressed interest in a Matrix 4 if only the W Brothers would do it. Those guys haven't done anything worth while since Matrix 1-3 and only Matriz 1 was good, 2 was horrible and  was a suck fest. Forget all this Keanu. Just stick with Wick, a brand new franchise wortha couple of sequels.
So we are getting that extra scene at the end credits. But read the final paragraph which Patrick Stewart says Jackman is just saying he's kidding to promote the movie. Common we all want to see him do Deadpool, right?
Speaking of which. The one day I didn't work on the film and this happens, lol. That would have been interesting. This is one of the reasons I haven't been posting as much due to this workload. I also signed an agreement which is one of the reasons I can't talk about it for now.
More of a tease than anything else. Well at least there's no mention of Mechagodzilla. Which Director Edwards wanted to do. With Classic opponents like Mothra and King G why deal with Mecha? No wonder he went to do Rogue One.
Screw this. Where's the director cut? The one where Ms. Jones goes head on with that Tie-fighter on the plank. That's the one the fans want to see. Well got to settle with this one. Which ain't a bad thing.

5 discs, then 4 disc set then finally a 3 disc set, all with different features and covers. How is a fan suppose to chose? Or are they taking advantage of us fans that we're going to buy all different packages at once? robbery just plain robbery! and no I haven't decided which one I will buy first, lol.

Bonus One:
3 films nominated for SFX at the Oscars. My nod goes to Rogue One.

And another video for SFX:

Bonus Two: Oscar Predictions

Thsi article pretyy much says it all. At least Denzel and Viola will get their dues.
Still with Jeff Bridges as Suppt Actor, Mel Gibson as Best Director. Actress? Who cares.
Best Picture: First Hacksaw Ridge but now that Hidden Secrets got the nod I'm going with Secrets.
Everything else? For the first time in 27 years I give up. It's not fun anymore.

Godzilla, King Of The Monsters

Sorry everyone, really back logged with the different projects I am working on. Soon you will see.
Next Live on MNN will be on Feb. 25 just before the Oscars. Hopefully a radio show before then.
Oh never mind all that. Who is he going to fight? Edwards wanted Mechagodzilla and Toho already gave the rights for Rodan, King G and even Mothra had an easter egg in  Godzilla 2014. So why not the mention. To hell with spoilers, I like to know!
Something to hold us over until both King Kong and Godzilla films come out, including the big showdown between both Icons. But hopefully it won't go the way of Cloverfield. One of the most overrated Big Creature Rampage ever done.
I know nobody cares especially with abunchof movies that are so overrated that its a joke now. And it will be one of the lowest rated Oscar show in years. That will be fun part to see how low those ratings will be.
At this point the movie can be directed by Bozo the clown and have a washed comedian (take your pick) as Batman. Warners just doesn't have a clue. And with Avenges Infinity around the corner it will be pretty much a wipe out.
Ironic that the pilot of the M Falcon has so many accidents relate to flying, ain't it But have to admit at 74 he still gets on a plane and flies it. Personally I would get on the same plane with this guy. Why take chances? aww c'mon fuzzballs laugh it up.

For The Week Ending February 10

Duw to heavy workload this will be the only blog for the week. Live on MNN will be a repeat this coming saturday. And a new Radio show will be posted next week.
Talk about a busy poster. And a way better looking one than the U.S. version. And you can't say that the poster reveals too much since the trailers have already done that.
And talk about Japanese. Well this makes sense. But I am surprise somebody would remember this as this goes way back. And a proper American release
The ironic thing about this is that the Star Wars franchise has pretty much tanked in China and Pacific Rim is starting a brand new franchise thanks to China after cleaning up at the box office. Yep ironic.
So is this is what replacing the traditional circur. Actually there are so many other arena type tours available that the circus has been passe for many years.Who doesn't like to see car crashes and wrecks by the dozen? It works for Monster Turck type of shows so why not. They should have as special guest Mad Max or even they could have their own tour.
Was it me or did most of the trailers had beenthere done it feel to them. Not to exciting that's for sure. But this tells the whole story until the final showdown. And it looks pretty boring until then. Well at least Arnold has Celebrity App until Cameron decides to redo the Terminator series and help his friend out on this.

King Kong Skull Island Special

Due to a heavy workload (yeah that musical production by a former X-Men, but worth it!)  the next blog and radio show will be posted next week.  But in the meantime...
Ironic. Rouge One was Edwards tribute to Apocalypse Now ( which at one point was going to be directed by Lucas himself). So now here is that reference point to Kong and Godzilla. More on this reference on the radio show.
Lots of goodies on the production. This also leads to other articles relating to the production.
I have to admit, this should be interesting from a different point of view. If you listen to the commentary (you guys know how much I love these no matter how bad the film is) by Coppola, he pretty much says it all. But to see it all come alive is definately a challenge.
Nice cover up. All this promotion and they still keep delaying the release date later into the year..
Perfect ! I mean look at that mug. But I have to admit Grint (Potter fans wake up!) would take it to anothe lever. The others? Well Some I know some I don't so I won't be the judge here. But I hope the new show runner will bring more imagination than previous. And boot up the Budget already for crying out loud!
Yikes ! this should be boring to the max. David Lynch versions was a mess. Here is the link to the best version that was never made:
Jodorowsky's Dune
This is so cool considering how much each actor have progress in their career to come back and take a pic. Yes, they were all part of a big picture but now all are involve in different projects in their point of their career. Some move on and don't look back regardless of the project and I just don't get that.
