Disney to blame for Sony pulling Spider-man out of the MCU? [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1_EOkShdQs[/url] [quote]Hours after Deadline Hollywood broke the scoop that Spider-man would be yanked from the MCU, Sony released an official statement confirming this to be the case, while laying all blame squarely at Disney’s feet. Is this a sign that the game, for lack of a better word, is not yet over? In this editorial, @AndreEinherjar will go through this statement, compare it with the original scoop, and give my take on who is really blame; before exploring if Spider-man man might actually be better off at Sony, and whether or not a bigger game is being played here.[/quote] [url]https://lebeauleblog.com/2014/11/22/what-the-hell-happened-to-emilio-estevez/8/[/url] [quote]Later that year, Estevez completed the Mighty Ducks trilogy with D3: The Mighty Ducks. In this one, the Ducks get scholarships to a prep school where they have to take on a snooty varsity team. It’s The Bad News Bears meets Animal House. Or something. Estevez limited his involvement in the third movie. According to Steven Brill who wrote all three movies, “Emilio was directing a movie and made a deal where he would do whatever he did in our movie, three days’ work or four — a week’s work, a symbolic visit.” The critics didn’t like the third Mighty Ducks any more than they liked the first two. But unlike the first two, Might Ducks 3 was not a hit at the box office. It opened in fourth place and grossed just over $22 million. It basically ended the franchise. I say “basically” because there have been talks of reviving the series because that’s what studios do these days. It’s easy to dismiss The Mighty Ducks movies. I know I do. But for a certain generation of kids who grew up on them, these movies are fondly remembered. Just a few weeks after Mighty Ducks 3 hit theaters, Estevez played a Vietnam veteran in the drama, The War at Home. Estevez played a vet suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Martin Sheen and Kathy Bates played his parents who do not understand what their son is going through. Kimberly Williams played his younger sister. This is the movie Estevez was directing that prevented him from participating more fully in Mighty Ducks 3. Under his deal with Disney, he appeared for a few days in the third Mighty Ducks and the studio provided $3 million dollars to finance The War at Home. Estevez cast his father, his sister, Renee Estevez and his daughter, Paloma Estevez.[/quote] Bella Thorne says she was "molested her whole life" in heartwrenching IG post [url]https://www.lipstickalley.com/threads/bella-thorne-says-she-was-molested-her-whole-life-in-heartwrenching-ig-post.2681876/[/url] It's interesting that come Batman Returns, there to the best of my recollection, aren't any people of color what so ever. Is it true that Katie smoked around her daughter, and Tom Cruise (being a health nut) felt strongly against this?

Star Trek the next Marvel? Possibilities and limitations of CBS Viacom merger [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFh1g6dJPXQ[/url] [quote]On August 13th, it became official that CBS and the new Viacom, Paramount’s corporate owner, will re-merge into a new company, ViacomCBS. This will have some major long term ramifications for Star Trek, and with any luck, of the positive kind - some are already drawing Marvel comparisons. Are such lofty comparisons premature though? In this editorial, @AndreEinherjar will go through the key-players behind this re-merger, and some of the select media coverage surrounding it, before giving his take on what this means for Star Trek, and the obstacles which are still in place.[/quote] [url]https://www.vulture.com/2019/08/elementary-series-finale-their-last-bow.html[/url] It seemed like Elementary would limp to a hollow finish last night after seven seasons, says Angelica Jade Bastién. Unfortunately, there were too many manipulations, she says. "The problems with the series finale, and the final season of Elementary as a whole, lie not so much in what happens but how it happens," says Bastién. "This season being whittled down from 21 episodes to 13 is clearly felt. The writers seem to be trying to force a full season of development into a final hour, making what could be a moving and entertaining concluding chapter into an overwhelming story that is too worried about burning through plot to deliver true emotional closure."

So, naturally, work quickly began on a sequel. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 brought in Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx as new villain Electro, but the filmmakers didn't stop there. Seemingly determined to ignore the lessons learned from the overstuffed Spider-Man 3, the film also added Dane DeHaan as a new Green Goblin, and then there was a tattooed Paul Giamatti performing history's least-convincing Russian accent as the Rhino. The subplot of Richard Parker's death was also featured heavily, with the conspiracy now being tied to Peter's transformation into Spider-Man. [b]Perhaps the biggest mistake made by the film was the decision to kill Gwen Stacy.[/b] While the 1973 comic book story "The Night Gwen Stacy Died" is considered a classic, by the time the film was released in 2014, the plot point of a woman dying to motivate a male character was considered tired at best and offensive and damaging at worst. There was also a strong sense that the character's death was not earned in the film, and that it was done simply because death is what fans associate with Gwen Stacy. These confusing plot choices, as well as some subpar performances (Foxx and Giamatti were especially poorly received) led to both the worst critical reception and the lowest box office take of any Spider-Man movie up to that point. Clearly, something had to be done to again save Sony's biggest franchise.[/quote] Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 'disrespects' Bruce Lee [url]https://www.looper.com/162486/kareem-abdul-jabbar-says-once-upon-a-time-in-hollywood-disrespects-bruce-lee/[/url] View all replies >
