Pirates Rule Internationally

Note that Live on MNN won't be back on the air until July as we have repeats playing until then.
A new Radio Show is coming sometime soon as I still haven't seen Pirates. What's the hurry?
next after seeing Wonder Woman, then I'll have something to talk about.

Update:
Mini-review: Pirates 5: 3 out of 5 (compared to 3 & 4 which sucked) 1 & 2 best with 2 my fav.
Ok It wasn't that bad. Simple: It did have it's moments (cameo by a Beatles was cool and so was that surprise ending) but this suffers from tired blood. They need to retire this franchise already.

Man I hope she saves the box office, I'm taking a beating here on this blog. The past few weeks have been tough. Lame Aliens, unfunny babes, sunburn sack jokes, tired pirates. Uggh. Disregard all the negatives in this article. Like I said before, WW will have legs (movie reference, no pun intended) for the rest of June noy like the other DC movies that burned out quick. And that's all that matters.

Video included. Yeah I shook myhead on this one too. Background in horror like the guys from Krampus doing Godzilla 2. But this guy knows his stuff. Check out IMDB for his credits. Jack of all trades but master of non. Reminds of James Cameron,  And look what megahits he's had. Duh!

Ok overseas is what is saving Pirates but the word is out people are just getting tired of this franchise. Say it ain't so Johnny! Uggh who cares. Baywatch so far is a wipeout but will overseas save it as it still hasn't opened up to major International B.O. cause already there's talk of a sequel. What, there's still more Ball Sack jokes that wasn't said in the first one? Same can be said with Alien C as that has completely tanked in the U.S. But if China and the rest saves this, then Ridley Scott is going to have his way with another sequel. Someone pull the plug on David the Android already!!!
But never mind the dull movies this past week cause you know who's going to save the day.......

Video included. Will this save the DCU? Either way looks like we got a hit folks. And this will clean up in June. No competition. Woman power. It's got a sense of humor! (much needed in DC) And a stand alone origin story that's never been properly explored. (tv show don't count). And a love sotry with Captain Kirk. Chicks love it. And this will have legs, meaning repeat and the naysayers who go "What another superhero movie?" and even they will see this. Lets face it, whats next, another Transformer movie? zzzz..Until Spiderman we have to hang in there. Either that or the beach and binge watch Orange is the New Black (I'm there somewhere, lol.)
What we need is a sleeper hit, something new and fresh with a "Wow, where did that come from I didn't even see it coming!" kind of major surprise for the summer. unfortunately this one is already getting thrown under a bus............

Jeez at least give a weekend before it tanks aka Alien C. Whether or not you like him Luc Besson always gives it his all. And he always try to be as original as he can in his style even if the subject has been done before. But to compare this to John Carter Mars is just plain mean. The problem with JC Mars that most of it has been done before (Lucas rip it off left and right for Star Wars, go ahead and stick your head in the sand with denial. You know it's to be true.)
Hopefully it won't be as bad as Jupiter Ascending, now that was bad. Compare to that will you?

Bonus Section: Reboots, Sequels, Remakes, oh my! Movies nobody was asking for. I sure wasn't.
And I leave it as that as my way of protesting against this. Ok just being lazy, saving time on typing.

Last two sucked! Janelle was cool in Hidden Figures. This is backwards. she deserves better.

Milla sounds pissed. Can't blame her. James Wan to the rescue. I'm so excited and I just can't zzzzzz

Beware the Blog and all of it's remakes. Halle, forget movies. Join Orange and get your emmy.

Mama Mia he we go again. Meryl there's a show on Netflix with the word Orange in it. Look it up.

So many others mention in the past 2 weeks like the Jetsons movie but this is just getting tiring.
So I'm going to save both each others time on this. Ending with that note, time to BRAG!

This was the movie I spent 3 months on filming in Brooklyn back in January-March. The studio will go all out in pushing this for the Oscars and yes the Bearded Lady will get a nod and so will the song. More details on IMDB. Me? I played an audience member who had to se Hugh everyday I was working on the set. Yeah very rough work, poor me, lol. More mention down the line.
