Is Thursday night the actual start of the weekend?
However, we can still pretend. And in that spirit, let’s all enjoy some brand new rock ‘n’ roll from…
The fact that this band kicks ass is not a conspiracy.
Please No. Please No. Please No!
As the creator and writer of a blog called Jimmy’s Daily Planet, this rumored breaking news today courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter has the potential to be sad in many ways.
While we await public reaction (or explanation) from Henry Cavill in the coming days, Mr. Cavill has said many times in past interviews–even quite recently–that he
is was very keen on a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel with a more positive/Christopher Reeve/comic book feel. This rumored decision to part ways with the studio seems like it was (or would have been) strongarmed by DC because of bad movie planning and poor execution in the midst of trying to hit the reset button in the middle of its burgeoning–and not awesomely received–film universe.
It also seems like the bullish move by the power brokers of the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) to unnecessarily mirror Marvel’s cinematic playbook by growing too quickly too fast came back around with a painfully bruising left hook.
And potentially losing its Superman is a major–and foreseeable–consequence of that decision years ago.
Broadly speaking, DC Comics superheroes are better than Marvel. The actors in DC property films are better than the actors in the Marvel films. The writing has not been perfect for all of its recent films, but by-and-large DC screenplays are far superior to Marvel films.
Marvel will never create anything close to Richard Donner’s ‘Superman’ or Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.
If DC’s cinematic planners would have just been patient and grown its extended universe slowly through gradual individual introductions of superheroes with interweaving storylines, then everything would be fine today.
They’d be able to handle moving faster than a speeding bullet at your local movie theater.
It happened 17 years ago today…
We can never say thank you enough to the first responders–police officers, firefighters, doctors, nurses, perfect strangers–who acted selflessly to help those in need during and after the 9/11 attacks in New York City, Washington D.C. and on Flight 93.
We will never forget those innocent lives we lost on September 11, 2001.
Mondays are not fun. That’s just the way it is. It picked the short straw. However, despite its lifelong misfortune and frustrating, unreversible reputation, there are always opportunities to find something good on this day.
This discovery just might include a random card filled with good wishes of positivity from a certain kind of wonderful mom.
The source of this discovery may come from famed actor Will Smith, who is relentlessly positive. He is relentlessly positive about inspiring perfect strangers (beyond Larry Appleton & Balki) and he is relentlessly determined about…
That’s why Will Smith is forever known as the fresh prince.
