Exciting news involving Steven Spielberg? Yes. Always.
With Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford returning for a fifth Indiana Jones flick, that’s a recipe for success that will surely learn from its mistakes in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Although, most of the faults in that 2008 film were reportedly attributable to George Lucas. So, having already experienced a modern day revival of the series from its glory days of the ’80s, any dust and rust should be resolved in preparation for the declared 2020 release date.
With 20/20 vision, you could say.
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
The primary questions involving movie sequels to popular, well-received originals are:
Will they be fantastic? Will the sequel be a storytelling, cinematic beast in its own right? How about a little of both?
The 2016 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film adaptation of the book of the same title is the grown-up version of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series (books and movies). This new teaser trailer solidifies that dynamic while using the wizarding school of Hogwarts and one of its most prominent figures just enough to firmly connect the two virtually separate universes for fans young and old for what should be a great reveal later this year.
What’s impressive in the video above is that one of writer J.K. Rowling’s favorite directors, David Yates, appears to have taken the Crimes of Grindelwald story to the next-level. And what’s more is that this Fantastic Beasts sequel looks, yes, better than the original in this burgeoning series. Could this really happen? A movie in the modern era with a sequel better than the original?
That could be the real magic of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald when it arrives in theaters on November 16.
The psychology of sleeping is funny.
As Daylight Savings approaches this Sunday, it’s essential that we are getting all the sleep we can these days. Some nights we fall right to sleep, while other nights can involve a lot of staring into the darkness for no particular reason or effectiveness. The latter is (hopefully) a very rare occurrence. But still, why does it happen? Was it something we ate? Something we drank? Are we cognitively consumed with something important, either consciously or unconsciously?
Might be time to consult a psychiatrist (or two).
Don’t forget to turn off the lights, set your alarm, and to kick-out your annoying TV brother who is spending the night.
