The Eagle’s Perch

“Eagle 20-Fox 2.”

The American bald eagle is majestic, flying with an unrivaled strength and precision in the air whose only match is a prehistoric dinosaur known as the Pterodactyl. But that’s not here but only back there.

Well, depending on if you want ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ to come true.

Regardless, there’s something else there. There’s an “it’ factor with an eagle that’s difficult to see up close. Distance is required to understand the true power of the eagle.

And yet it’s there when needed most…on a perch or in a cockpit taking a slightly different form than expected.

It’s not the 4th of July, but Eagle 20-Fox knew how to help in the direst situations.

Just sitting and waiting until that moment arrives.

Happy Monday!

Movies need to be more realistic. Movies need to feel like it’s really happening.

Well, following the success of ‘The Jungle Book’ live-action (of sorts) remake, Disney is at it again with ‘The Lion King.’

Will this new ‘Lion King’ succeed at the box office? Can it possibly live up to the wonder of the original animated classic from 1994? Will this new adaptation add anything new or simply be a retelling or the aforementioned 1994 animation?

For now–until July 19, 2019, theatrical release date–let’s just live each day before then by two words:

Hakuna Matata.

No worries, just anticipation.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

P.S. James Earl Jones returned for this new ‘Lion King.’ Yes, that James Earl Jones. 

The Original Quiet Place

What could should have been…

The new trailer for a canceled show debuted online today. That’s a weird sentence.

For some unknown reason, the Tremors TV show on Syfy was canceled before given a chance to explode out of the ground floor with its beloved, nostalgic power-player. Kevin Bacon, the star of the original 1990 Tremors film–and the six-degrees of separation guy–had surprisingly signed on to make a non-HBO and non-network reboot of the cult classic. Yes, Syfy, which is the same channel that produced all those Sharknado movies (they are fun to watch for how awesomely bad they are with acute self-awareness).

Now, is this TV adaptation officially dead in the desert of Perfection, Nevada? With all the streaming options out there–and based on the potential from this trailer and its big-name leading man–this show may pop-up somewhere else in the near future with new life.

Someplace more perfect than Syfy.

Happy Thanksgiving

Spending Thanksgiving with family and friends reminds us of the warmth of our relationships, the delicious food that’s brought to the table and the unique hilarity delivered by our family members. For starters, there’s a sign in my parent’s house that reads, “‘Tis the season for forced family fun.” Most of all, this holiday is about settling our rivalries, coming together and being thankful. And in true Thanksgiving fashion, this should happen on the gridiron.

Or at a nearby park.

The Geller Yeller still hasn’t announced the winner.

Happy Thanksgiving!
