It's Thursday, I'm not drunk enough, let's do this.
Pop Culture Happenings
Movie trailers seem such a great way to start things off, so let's jump into the next biggest trailer since "Skyfall" earlier in the week. This time we have Baz Luhrmann's trailer for "The Great Gatsby," starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular character. As this is the book everyone in America, (except me somehow), has read, I am sure most people will be either a) excited because they love the source material, b) bored because they hated the source material, or c) interested solely on Baz Luhrmann's previous work and/or this trailer. I myself am interested as far as it being a cinematic interpretation of a literary classic, but that's about it.
Supercuts are really popular nowadays. I think it is because people get blown away at the sheer enormity of how long it took to make. They think of all the hours that go into it, and how amusing the end results generally are, and they give a lot of credit to the creators. I am not implying you shouldn't, I'm just pointing out why they are so popular. In this instance, witness the scenes of Chewbacca's dialogue from "Star Wars," as long as he is on screen and speaking.
Now that "Battleship" is out and is TANKING, let us hope the Hasbro-line of Hollywood films comes to an end. Seeing as there is still "Ouija" and "Candyland" yet to come as actually-real-and-not-a-joke films, anything is possible. While I wouldn't mind all the Hasbro films, including "Transformers" and "G.I. Joe," to burn in a fire for all eternity, there is one I wouldn't mind going to see, but it isn't Hasbro. Witness the might and magic of "Tetris: The Movie."
