Trailer Thursdays – September 28

It’s once again time to take a look at some of the trailers that catch my as we look to the future to see what will entertain us in the coming months.

We’re going to kick things off today with the trailer for ANNIHILATION, starring one of my favorite actresses, Natalie Portman, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The movie, directed by Alex Garland, is based on the first book of the Southern Reach trilogy and tells the story of a biologist who goes on a dangerous secret mission where the laws of nature don’t apply.

ANNIHILATION is set for release on February 22, 2018.

Next up is one of the more unsettling trailers we’ll include, THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER, starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman and Alicia Silverstone. Farrell plays a surgeon who is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behavior of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister.

The film is set for limited release on October 20.

One of Agatha Christie’s most enduring stories, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS, is getting a remake, this time directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot. An eclectic cast, including Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer and Judi Dench, joins Branagh in the story of 13 stranded strangers & one man’s race to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS is set for a November 10 release.

I was 13 years old when the siege of the Branch Dividian compound happened, and now the 6-part TV miniseries, WACO, will tell the story. The series stars Taylor Kitsch, Melissa Benoist, Michael Shannon and John Leguizamo.

The series debuts in January on the Paramount Network.

Finally, if you want to see what NETFLIX has in store for us in October, you can check out the trailer they released hyping their new content next month.

  • Good Thursday to you.

  • TatR!

    It’s about time. Gentlemen, start your engines!

  • RudoWakening

    It’s chilly here in La Crosse. Let’s have a good Thursday here in Geekdom

    • TatR!

      I won a quiz yesterday and had my tram fine appeal granted, it was a good wednesday

  • Finally, my wi-fi seems to be working again.

  • TatR!

    ugh I was so hungover this morning and now it’s 1:40pm and I still just want to go to bed

    • DAJackson7

      Saw on the IG you won the quiz, how was it?

      • TatR!

        We were disgusting nerds I was ashamed of how much I knew. We got 50 points, the 2nd place team got 16 points. We got more than the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place teams combined. Useless, useless knowledge. We won bar vouchers and blew it all on more beer right away.

        • DAJackson7

          Hahaha, that’s so awesome. Any questions you didn’t know?

          • TatR!

            Yeah there was a round on finishers and so many of them i didn’t have a clue. A lot of recent stuff I was clueless. One of our team members was born in *1996*. His first memory was JBL and Batista. He was better on the recent stuff. I cleaned up on the historical general knowledge rounds. I even nailed “How many times has Undertaker won at Summerslam” and “how many Wrestlemania matches has John Cena had” which I just didn’t think I would know but somehow did.

          • DAJackson7

            Oh shit, i would have no clue on those two questions at all

          • TatR!

            we had to quickly do the math on our paper for Cena. the taker one was a guess really, I got five wins up to like 2001 and then guessed that he’d probably only won 5 more since then and yep. 10 wins at Summerslam.

  • Devin Harris

    None of these really catch my eye, so let me comment on Colin Farrell. Did anyone fall from leading man to whatever he’s doing so fast?

    • I’m looking forward to Murder on the Orient Express. I think it could be pretty good

      • it will be interesting how they keep that going on the big screen for a whole movie but it seems they gave it a good go with huge casting and lots of visual pizzazz

    • TatR!

      didn’t he have a sex tape? Maybe that did him in

      • Devin Harris

        I don’t think that did him in more than making crap

    • WorldWide Duck

      Josh Hartnett fell about as hard.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        He did a brief comeback in Penny Dreadful

    • I disagree I think he made a specific choice to stop trying to chase box office gold and leading man roles and started choosing work he really was interested in. Sure there is the occasional Total Recall reboot but since about the time of In Bruges he’s done a lot of good work. or at least interesting work.

      • Devin Harris

        I don’t see this. He made a ton of crap and then it seems like he stopped being cast in leading roles. There is the possibility that you are right but I doubt it

    • Diddly

      Katherine Heigel?

    • DAJackson7

      That god awful Alexander movie….shit it was awful

  • Hello all, this has nothing to do with my almost getting this place shut down yesterday but our deal leader did a wonderful job on trailers today hitting all of the ones that caught my eye this week

    • This is some top shelf toadying.

      • sure im sucking up a little but all three of those trailers grabbed me

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      ???

      • what?

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          “…this has nothing to do with my almost getting this place shut down yesterday…”

          • I pissed Ferrari off and he posted that yesterday was going to be the last day to have open threads over here

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Geez, what did you do?

          • its all cool now. what I thought was the running gag of giving him garbage about not letting me post trailers.. he did not take as a gag

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            There’s a lot of that going around.

            The internet is a bad place for subtlety.

          • TatR!

            he didn’t like my running gag of posting tits either

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            This is less subtle.

          • I can’t wait to spend the next two weeks or so navel gazing about me losing my temper for no reason.

          • 👎🏼

          • I won’t bring it up again. I probably shouldn’t have brought it up in my compliment to your post but I did then they asked so I answered

          • It’s all good. As was said before, that was top notch toadying.

            I’m gonna take a nap.

    • DAJackson7

      That first movie looks interesting. If only they would lez out

    • TatR!

      wait what did you do? Rehash it all in detail for me please for the benefit of all also

    • ProjectBlue
  • Blackjack Jowalsen

    I always feel like such a square when I comb through pictures of ancient art to find one without dongs in them.

  • Lazy Baby can sit up, pull himself up, roll anywhere that pleases him, and even get into the crawling position. But he doesn’t crawl.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Can a baby be lazy?

      • Yes

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Not pulling his own weight, huh?

          • Not yet. The Boy is coming along nicely though. He’s a legitimate help with many chores.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            It’s hard to do chores when you don’t have control over your motor skills.

          • He can partially feed himself now..

    • TatR!

      like where’s he got to go

      • The couch. Or his car. Or follow me around.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Your baby has a car?

  • Diddly

    Saw LEGO Ninjago Movie last night. It was… just okay

    • I’m taking The Boy on Sunday so no spoilers!

      Ah, I kid, spoilers are fine. That’s how I’ll know what’s going on.

    • DAJackson7

      I know nothing of ninjago, so i don’t know if i could get into that one

    • TatR!

      I’ve only seen pictures of this stuff in shops, it doesn’t seem to be the same kind of Lego thing as the movie or the Batman stuff.

  • I honestly think Colin Farrell went from some what generic leading man to one of the more interesting hollywood actors today. take In Bruges, Fright Night, The Lobster … those are way different performances and he’s great in them all AND was the best thing about True Detective season 2 and Fantastic Beasts. As bad as I thought Fantastic Beasts was the most deflating part was the end you enjoyed Farrell?? JK he’s now Johnny friggin Deep in more pancake make up!

    • ProjectBlue

      Still need to see The Lobster. Liked Seven Psychopaths a bunch

      • as did I. The lobster is …… worth a watch it’s interesting that is for sure. This one seems equally weird but for some reason I get the sense it will be a little better

        • TatR!

          I hated the Lobster. HATED it. It made me unhappy to be alive. It ruined my life by like 1%. it’s very existence appalled me. what a nasty piece of work it was.

          • ProjectBlue

            (Weirdly, urge to watch rises)

          • TatR!

            I can understand that. For me it tops the list that also contains Serbian Film and Human Centipede 2 as movies that I feel might have made me a worse person for having seen them.

  • DAJackson7

    After last night’s game the Cardinals need to fire Matheny…now. Those sad sacks will never see another dollar of mine until he’s gone

  • Facts

    Well great, how am I supposed to see naked women now that Hugh Hefner passed away?!

    • He left us a gift…….::shows Facts the internet::

      • Facts

        ………………………oh wow

  • Facts

    Wow there are a lot of naked ladies on this thing called the internet.

  • Miko363

    Does John Leguizamo just hang around outside producer’s offices now looking for work?

    • He’s one who I think has done ok for himself after rising high and crashing and burning he’s found his niche as a character actor. The problem is people see you as a failure after you were in the spot light early and then transition into character actor

      • Miko363

        I just Wikipedia’d him and apparently he still does stuff! This is news to me. He’s also doing the very smart thing and raking in that animated voice actor cash.

        • Yeah he gets a lot of work and honestly most stuff he gets now are roles he can be good in.. unless he is one of those people you just hate to see which I know he is for some

    • Diddly

      The toxins produced by grass in The Happening really messed up his brain

    • I remember him from House o’ Buggin’

  • After Ex MAchina I’m pretty intrigued by this Annihilation movie. Also happy to see him use Oscar Issacs again

    • TatR!

      Ex Machina was tough in places but wasn’t she a sexy robot

      • tough in places?

        you mean you didn’t like it as a whole?

        • TatR!

          sorry badly worded. the ending was tough. tough ending. sad times. but sexy robot.

          • yeah it was. I get the feeling he is not going to be a happily ever after director

  • Nap time. For me. That baby is already sleeping. Maybe I’ll read a comic first…

  • Facts

    I have an idea for a movie about a brilliant man who is Amish that builds a sex robot.

    • ProjectBlue

      He builds a sheep?

  • TatR!

    That movie Robot and Frank was nice. I cried quite a bit at that.

    • that’s cool… I was curious about that.. kind of forgot about it

  • Diddly

    #DicksOutForHef

    • Facts

      Hold on………

    • Fun fact – Hefner’s foundation helped to develop the rape kit.

      • Diddly

        Which sit unused and untested in police departments all across the country!

  • ProjectBlue

    Never heard of the Paramount Network. Decently big gets cast wise for them unless it means it’s so bad, other networks passed on it

    • Nope they are changing Spike TV to the Paramount Network

      • DAJackson7

        Again? What the hell?!? The Nasville Netowrk to just TNN to Spike , now the Paramount network?

        • I mean you are talking about almost 20 years there so its not like TNA changing their name back and 4th four times this year

          • DAJackson7

            True, it just seems a waste to re brand television networks, i never once thought “I’m not checking out that show, the network it’s on has a dumb sounding name”

  • In other child news, The Boy is getting to be a pretty good little reader.

    • ProjectBlue

      A no duh but the most important thing you can send him off to school doing.

      • TatR!

        that and toilet training

        • He’s been fully toilet trained for a very long time.

          • TatR!

            I’d teach my kid reading first then he can read the newspaper while he’s sitting on the toilet

          • He’s 5. He has no idea what a newspaper is. He asks Siri to google things of interest to him.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        • ProjectBlue

          Well yeah, that’s nice too. But honestly? If my second graders coming later that can’t read or write their name let alone anything else shit themselves now and again, I might be ok with that

  • Devin Harris

    Is Ryan Reynolds still getting chances to suck?

    • he’s a huge superstar now because of deadpool so yes

      • Devin Harris

        He’s like the Roman Reigns that eventually got over, no?

        • I liked him at the start I think he picked a lot of terrible stuff and leaned into what worked for him to the point it got way over the top but I think he’s figured out how to reign it in. That said I had no interest in hitman’s bodygaurd or Life this year so he may still be sucking

          • Devin Harris

            Seems to be more clunkers than hits. Just surprised that he keeps getting chances.

          • Things certainly seemed to be drying up some before Deadpool but once you have the biggest R rated movie or all time or whatever you are going to start getting offers again

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            Not to mention helping to anchor the X-Men franchise (or at least the X-Force side) for years to come

    • Diddly

      how dare u

      • Devin Harris

        Green Lantern should have been the end of him but nope! Keep pushing him till he gets over

        • ProjectBlue

          Eh, I wouldn’t have been shocked if it did him in but that had a lot more issues than him

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          At least he knew what would work for him (Deadpool)

        • RudoWakening

          He pushed and pushed for Deadpool to happen for years

    • ProjectBlue

      Just bombed with assassin’s bodyguard or whatever that was in august

      • bombed isn’t really right it’s made 160 world wide so far and cost 30 to make

        • ProjectBlue

          Wow. Most of that foreign? It came and went and was eaten by Pennywise here so figured

          • 70 something domestic. It was the only thing people were even slightly interested in for a couple weeks till IT came out

  • ProjectBlue

    http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/story/news/2017/09/27/packers-national-anthem-plans-continue-rile-fans/703520001/ Huh, I kinda figured if one fan base would put team over “country” it’d be Green Bay

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    I pick Stan Lee to play Hugh Hefner in a biopic

    • I hope you have a script, studio, financing, cast and sets ready to go into production today

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        *checks wallet*
        .
        Be right back!

    • Devin Harris

      I hope it doesn’t get reduced to bangin’ broads cause as someone else noted his group helped develop the rape kit and he helped fund some of the civil rights movement.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        I didn’t know that

  • Devin Harris

    Someone like Tom Cruise getting more chances makes sense cause he has a history of success. Minority Report may be the last time I watched a movie of his. That was Minority Report, right? The one where people knew your crime before you committed it?

    • yes it was

      • Devin Harris

        I wanted to say that was Vanilla Sky for some reason

        • DAJackson7

          No vanilla sky is the one were he gets frozen after getting an illness or something. It tried to be deep, but it was worthless

          • I liked it

          • DAJackson7

            I really hate Cameron Crowe movies…except for Elizabethtown oddly enough

          • weird………………I love say anything and Almost Famous and liked Vanilla sky. Eilzabethtown the dvd started skipping towards the end and I was…….yea… I think I’ve got it I’m good I have not watched any since then other than Pearl Jam 20 which is great

          • DAJackson7

            Pearl Jam fans make me hate Pearl Jam so i just can’t with that one

          • RudoWakening

            Singles is a wonderful flick

        • Vanilla sky was the head trip one directed by Cameron Crowe

    • I’ve only ever seen Interview With the Vampire

      • Devin Harris

        No Days of Thunder? Brother, you are missing out

        • DAJackson7

          “Rubbin is Racin”

          • Devin Harris

            Man I had the NES game, too! That thing was awesome

          • DAJackson7

            Damn pit stops on that game were hard as shit

    • although that is cutting him short…shorter than he already is. He’s had a lot of hits since then. The MI movies are huge and most of his stuff turns a profit because he is a international huge superstar.. about as big as they come

      • Devin Harris

        I saw the first one. Which came out last? Then that’s the last movie of his I’ve seen. I thought it was eh

        • the first one isn’t the best. It’s like the Fast Furious movies where it became a whole different thing and now it’s one big extravaganza instead of a spy movie with more heel/face turns than the big show

          • DAJackson7

            Well crap, now i need to see MI movies, i gave up after 2

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            The movies basically picked up around part 4, right?

          • I need to re-watch 3 people seem to really like 3 but we were meh about it at the drive in.

            4 and 5 are a fun.

            2 is… John Woo.. so you know .. if you like slow mo, flames and doves… then cool.
            There was a lot of fun motorcycle stunts though

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Jack Reacher was decent, I thought

      • yea even something like that which was a disappointment here in the US made over 200 million world wide

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Didn’t he run headfirst into a wall and die recently?

      • Devin Harris

        They showed the stunt on one of those tabloid shows. Didn’t look to bad on tape. he’s probably milking it

  • Fast food restaurant Sonic has had a cyber breach.

    • DAJackson7

      Cool, i never eat there! Shit, my wife does

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        I use to eat at Sonics when I first moved to Texas until I discovered better burgers around town

        • RudoWakening

          But do how do they compare with Animal Style?

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Well, if you eat at Sonic you’re just asking for trouble anyway.

      • Diddly

        But where else will I get foot long chili cheese hot dogs?

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          The garbage?

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            They have decent shakes and slushies

    • Diddly

      I ate there in August, crap

    • Facts

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Facts

    Hugh Hefner dies and Sonic has a cyber breach. Truly we are in The Dark Ages.

    • He brought 18 year old boobies to the unwashed masses. He should get a statue.

      • Facts

        Oh yes

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I can’t get over the fact that Sonic was a gas station and still looks like a gas station and even the food in their commercials looks like gas station food. Makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      On the other hand, Valero has kick ass hot dogs

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I stopped eating hot dogs once I realized what was in them. Now, I can’t have one without getting sick.

  • Facts

    I want to get that Playboy Centerfold Collection book.

    • Diddly

      I assume the V’s are Photoshopped out?

      • Facts

        Hmmmm good question.

  • Diddly

    My dad hates Sonic because their commercials always cast “the ugliest human beings in America”

    • DAJackson7

      Those commercials are the worst, i pay anything for one of the canopy’s to fall and kill the two guys who do them in the car. Not really kill them, just kill their commercial charachters

      • Comdukakis

        they are bad, but not as bad as that Dr. Pepper vendor guy. Worst ongoing ad campaign in my life history

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I’m sitting here trying to figure out if I’ve ever made it through an entire Tom Cruise movie besides Jerry Maguire. It seems impossible, but I think that’s the only one. I’ve seen parts of various things, but I think that’s about it.

    • DAJackson7

      Top Gun
      Days of Thunder
      The rest don’t matter

      • Devin Harris

        Hey! Hey! Hey! A Few Good Men go up there

        • DAJackson7

          Eh, it’s all a build up to one scene, you watch it once and you never want to watch it again

    • Devin Harris

      I’ve never seen all of Jerry Maguire. I watch bits and pieces at a time but it’s just a blah movie to me

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I think it soured me on all other Tom Cruise films, honestly.

        • Comdukakis

          hmm. I really enjoyed that movie

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Tropic Thunder

    • Top Gun
      A Few Good Men
      The MI movies (for the most part)
      Magnolia (I like it)

      Vanilla sky (again i liked it)
      Minority Report
      Collateral
      Tropic Thunder
      Edge of Tomorrow/ live die repeat

      I think are all very good. Never actually seen Jerry Maguire. And Jack Reacher and Days of Thunder are fun

    • Comdukakis

      risky business, the Firm, top gun off the top of my head.

  • Devin Harris

    Sonic looks like carnival food. I don’t like getting food from a carnival so I’ve never eat at sonic.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      I do. Fried oreos and snickers are awesome

      • I had a deep fried Mars bar once. It was worth trying, but I don’t think I’d do it again.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          It was worth the stomach. These days I probably won’t be able to finish half withouth hurling

      • Devin Harris

        No.

      • Dwayne

        I never tried those but I bet they are good.

    • The shakes are good. I’m always a sucker for tater tots and texas toast and Blanche likes their hot dogs

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Food from a carnival is fine if you’re going to the chair the next day. If you want to live any quality of life with semi-healthy bowels, it’s probably best to avoid it.

      • Grandpa, spitting truths!

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Don’t get me wrong, 18-year-old Grampa would have been all over the fried candy bars and shit. 39-year-old Grampa knows the end result of a bad diet.

      • Dwayne

        Not that I went to a ton of carnivals but it seems like it’s not much different from fast food. But i’ve never had a weak stomach to begin with.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          At least there’s SOME quality and health code control with most fast food joints. Carnie food seems like culinary Russian Roulette.

          • Devin Harris

            Yeah man. I had a friend that worked one. He traveled around the country with it. Noooooooooooooooooooooo

          • Dwayne

            I guess so. I only ever really did coney island which has Nathan’s. I had that once. I can’t remember eating at some kind of state fair or something.

          • It’s usually pretty bad. You get better quality at fast food chains.

  • DAJackson7

    I enjoy the fact we’re talking about movies from 15-30 years ago so that i can actually contribute. Hahaha

  • Diddly

    My mom also refers to Sonic as “chronic” but I spell the word [WRESTLING REFERENCE REMOVED]

    • DAJackson7

      But it’s hard to type that backwards K, a feat i was constantly amazed WCW could pull off

      • Diddly

        I bet they spent about 4 weeks making sure that backwards K was perfect on their chryons and merchandise

  • RudoWakening

    This dude on my Waste crew just isn’t getting the job. He asks the same questions multiple times a day, every single day. I may try to get him subbed out for someone new

    • Diddly

      “Trash goes in the trash can. Got it!”

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Whenever I train somebody I try to be patient and understanding, but if that person doesn’t get the gist of it within a week, they won’t last long

      • RudoWakening

        Here’s the kicker: he’s actually been with the Waste group longer than I have on this site

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    So I guess Megyn Kelly is already pissing people off? It hasn’t even been a week yet!

    • Dwayne

      I never got the whole thing about her being so cute. Or so smart.

      • TatR!

        She got the Shepherd Smith bump of not always being 100% as terrible as all the other Fox News people

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          *looks up Shepherd Smith*

          Huh. That’s interesting.

          • TatR!

            Like right now he’s taking the NFL protestors side a little. he’s right wing, he’s part of the Fox family, but he’s never all in on all the bullshit

          • he’s also one of the few when breaking news is happening willing to repeatedly say.. we really don’t know what is happening.. instead of making shit up

          • TatR!

            I remember that clip where they’re following that fugitive guy or whatever and Shepherd sees he’s about to shoot himself in the head and he’s like “TURNITOFFTURNITOFFTURNITOFF”

          • Also if you never saw the Llamas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCTJTUU54VA

      • It’s like because she hurt Fox News image with the sex allegations that NBC thought she was the greatest thing ever when really.. so you have probably pissed off the fox news fans and the other side never liked her in the first place…..where is the audience for her to be given prime to network tv

        • Dwayne

          I think the feuding with Trump last year also got her over with some. But she seems like a difficult person to deal with.

          • Comdukakis

            I never got that. It’s like two asshole jocks fighting at school. Just because one isn’t quite as bad doesn’t make either anyone you want to hang out with

  • Harrison Ford… there is a guy who up through the Fugitive was pretty much a dead lock good flick. Then it became a more mixed bag. There was still the good with Clear and Present Danger, Air Force One I even enjoyed 6 days 7 nights but there was also Sabrina The Devil’s Own Random Hearts. Then after What Lies beneath (which I like) it all went to shit and everything he did was garbage till he started this come back.

  • For those not around last night finally saw Wonder Woman. I’ll be kind and give it about 3 stars even though the last act really killed it for me and it was 20 minutes to long over all.

    She was good, Pine was great. There was some good stuff in there but also a ton of ramp speed action, some really clunky editing during action scenes and again…that last act……………

    • Comdukakis

      ehh, it was awesome.

      • to each their own

        • Dwayne

          Unacceptable. You must fight to the death over who is right.

          • Comdukakis

            he has to tape his neck up like the wrestlers do so I know which body part to attack

          • Oh I mean he is totally wrong and obviously just sucking up to women but.. you know..

          • Comdukakis

            sexist pig

          • I think we gave them what they wanted

          • Comdukakis

            did we hit 4 stars? I want a good write up from Scott and Meltzer

          • maybe 3 1/2 we weren’t given enough time to tell more of a story

        • Comdukakis

          nope. You WILL agree with me.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Remember the Community episode with Abed trying to decide if Nic Cage was a good or bad actor?

    I’m starting to feel that way about Al Pacino.

    • Pacino was amazing. I think you do it long enough as a leading man like him and you just get comfortable and rely on the tricks that have worked for you in the past

  • Comdukakis

    I openly admit my standards for entertainment aren’t as high as some around here. I like some sitcoms that people around here bag on like Home Improvement, Friends, Big Bang Theory, etc. My movie tastes are similar. Not that much of a critic if you will.

    • Dwayne

      I’m like that with shows and wrestling. I don’t analyze stuff like a critic would. If something kept my attention and I enjoyed it then it’s good. If it didn’t then it’s bad.

      • Comdukakis

        it’s not hard to make me laugh. stuff like King of Queens which is admittedly low brown amuses me enough. I mean it is hit and miss. Some other low brow stuff like Mike and Molly or Two Broke girls is atrocious IMO.

        • Dwayne

          I watched a few episodes of Broke Girls and it’s all Kat tits and sex jokes. Nothing else there.

          • Comdukakis

            having seen them unclothed though, they are glorious

          • TatR!

            i mean that sounds amazing tbh

          • Dwayne

            I watched like 4 episodes in a row so I guess it had my attention.

    • BBT..now I get it

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Coca-Cola, Pepsi, etc. really are panicking over this soda tax stuff. “Your FREEDOM is being taken away, don’t let the GOVERNMENT tell you that you can’t have a 256oz. MegaGulp with your combo meal! USA, USA, USA!”

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan of taxes, it’s just funny to see these companies scrambling after years of getting away with blatant bullshit.

      • what blatant bullshit? they made drinks people wanted to drink

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          They targeted kids and the poor and it worked. But after decades of diabetes and rotten teeth, people are starting to make connections and now the soda companies are all “oh, well you have to make healthy choices!” Funny, you weren’t spouting that shit during the Cola Wars.

          • Comdukakis

            lots of stuff causes bad health. Basically anything that tastes good is bad for you. hardly the same as cigarette makers or something. they sold a product with sugar. They advertised that product to people who like sugar (kids). Sugar is bad for teeth. Film at 11

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I’m more annoyed at their attempts to pander now that people are getting wise and sales are down.

          • Comdukakis

            I get it. I pander when my upvote totals go down

      • Comdukakis

        maybe they should tax a truly dangerous product….guns.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          Not these guns!
          .
          *flexes*

          • Comdukakis

            I haven’t done any corroborating research but a FB friend (ok, actually the wife’s niece) posted that gun sales are way down since Trump got elected. that is positively wonderful. gun sales up when black guy in office, gun sales down when white guy who hates brown people is in office.

          • Diddly

            Well the minute Obama was elected, the fearmongerers were shouting from the rooftops about how Obama was going to declare martial law and take everyone’s guns away and tax businesses out of business

          • Comdukakis

            oh I know. but if guns are for safety as we are told (and not compensate for small penis size) then wouldn’t they be buying more since Trump ran on lies that crime was at record highs?

    • I do some what agree that kind of stuff is dumb and “COULD” lead down a dangerous road.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Like I said, I’m less on the side of the government and more amused to see Big Soda scrambling to cover their tracks.

        • Dwayne

          Down with Big Soda!!

    • Comdukakis

      I’m still trying to figure out how giant tax cuts equal “tax reform” You want real tax reform? take away all the millions of tax credits and deductions for the rich and corporate America THEN start talking about lowering rates to 20% for corporations and 35% for the rich. In the meantime the rate actually goes UP for those taxed at 10% (to 12%) but the always benevolent GOP rulers SWEAR the unwashed masses will pay less due to higher tax credits and deductions.
      Trust them. After all, have they lied to you before?

    • RudoWakening

      It’s Parks and Rec come to reali life!

  • Dwayne

    Speaking of Big Soda I remember the 3 liter ones back in the day.

  • I have a compliance meeting in a moment.

  • Diddly

    I’ve cut back on Gatorade this month (down to about 2 bottles a week vs. 1 bottle a day) and basically only drink water, coffee and milk now

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      I rarely drink sodas. Mainly water, milk, green tea and occasionally coffee

    • Dwayne

      I like green gatorade

    • Comdukakis

      I rarely drink soda. It’s all water and milk.

    • The Silver Fox

      Water, coffee, tea (both hot and iced) and milk daily. Soda 2-3 times a week, same with alcohol.

    • Water, coffee, beer, and occasionally a Coke Zero.

    • RudoWakening

      About a gallon of water a day, coffee, and soda a couple times a week. Add hot apple cider to the list now that it’s Autumn.

    What do you think of the women on this Cleveland morning show?

    • I’d say they’re about a Cleveland 8… which is about a 4 anywhere else in the country.

      • Mikey

        DAmn, even the brunette? I like her. She was like a Miss USA competitor from Missouri.

        • Comdukakis

          I don’t like the lips. they both have those fading model, inject collagen style lips that I hate.

    • DAJackson7

      Is that The Ladies Man in beteween them?!? Cause he’s in the middle of a fish samwitch!

  • Marv

    Conducting a survey here, this gif gets funnier on the 300th viewing right?

      • Marv

        It’s the hair going crazy right before he hits the bus that just…I’ve watched this 1,000 times this morning and I just keep laughing

  • The Daily Hollywood Headline Roundup:
    HBO is giving GoT 15 Million an ep for the last 6 episodes making it THE MOST EXPENSIVE TV BUDGET OF ALL TIME!
    You would think with that kind of money they could get the episodes out there next friggin year! The show is still targeted for early 2019.

    Also in GoT news Jon Snow and Ygritte are getting married in real life. Jon Snow evidently does know something about bagging a hot ginger.

    Oliver Queen style flashback on TDHHR: Liam Neeson has retired from action movies. ::shoosh back to none color corrected live action:: Liam Neeson recently said ” I’m going to be doing action movies until they bury me in the ground. I’m unretired.”

    Coming to America 2 is happening and it seems Warm Body director Jonathan Levin is directing and blackish creator Kenya Barris is writing a new draft of the script…. I mean the first one is great but 30 years later tends not to work for comedy.

    Terminator 6: just terminate it already! is expected to be released July 26th 2019.

    In related LET IT GO news another Die Hard is coming. Die Hard: Year One Bruce will play present day McClane while a yet to be cast young actor will play 70’s just starting out John…because what Die Hard needed at this point was Arrow flash backs. At least get JGL to play young him again.

    I’m cutting it off here and will put up part two in awhile so it’s not super long

    That’s the latest Hot Gos from Hollyweird thanks for not getting rid of me Ferrari Edition

    • It’s like the old news edition today.

      • Well, at least I won’t have to worry about repeating any of this “news” over the weekend.

      • =(

        • Eh, maybe it works as conversation starters… none of us are really all that hip to what’s happening in Hollywood… but… like… old news, you know?

          Maybe not the GoT stuff. I never really cared about it, so I don’t really follow. It’s the GoT news and flashbacks edition!

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            But I care!.
            .
            I knew about Jon and Ygritte, though

          • I said I didn’t care about GoT, I never said no one else cared! Obviously I am in the minority here.

          • this was today’s stuff on the sites I went to

          • Some places are getting really lazy. Not you, of course. You continue to do a bang-up job with… whatever these are supposed to be. Really, they’re great. The other places? Not so much. Failing grade.

          • TatR!

            peyton what year is this :/

          • TatR!

            can’t wait until you watch twin peaks and get references

    • DAJackson7

      Every damn idea in that Roundup sounds awful. To really bat for a 1.000 you just needed Han Solo movie and DC news

    • Reasonable Opinion Guy

      ” Also in GoT news Jon Snow and Ygritte are getting married in real life”

      That is one ridiculously attractive couple.

    • Marv

      I’d be interested to see how many people cancelled HBO over the last month.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        We did, lol

        • Marv

          Same here

          • Comdukakis

            we would have but the gave us a year as part of a new deal when we threatened to cancel Dish completely

    • TatR!

      Ah that’s nice that Jon and Ygritte ended up together after he saw her die trying to kill him.

    Hahaha Rick Pitino is going to jail…and apparently all the assistants the Feds rounded up are singing like canaries……bye bye NCAA

    • Comdukakis

      let’s hope this somehow takes down Lavar Ball too

      • Diddly

        Yeah! Lavar Ball has been paying his kids allowance and buying them dinners for YEARS!

        • Comdukakis

          LOL. I’m quite sure he’s been getting paid to steer his kids and his other AAU players to certain schools. and almost any prominent travel team is dirty as can be and in the mud with the shoe companies

          • Devin Harris

            Lavar Ball is the symptom and not the cause. Take out Lavar Ball and 30 more pop back up. The NCAA is the cause but people really don’t want to see it fail. People like it better when they can pretend everyone is playing for their school and the love of the game

      • DAJackson7

        I think if you have ever heard of someone in college it will get them.

    • Devin Harris

      Why did I read this in JR’s voice?

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez
    • Marv

      I really hated that storyline. Like of all the ways for Logan to die he just kneels down and turns into a stale Twinkie it was so lame

  • That was a very fast compliance meeting.

    The two girls leading we’re pretty cute. I still hope that I never see then again.

    In honor of Hef I woke up today with mourning wood

    Anyone watch that David Boreanaz Seal Team show last night?

    • I have not. I do not generally watch shows on CBS other than the morning news with Charlie Rose.

    Nothing like watching a super cute Korean cover anime soundtracks to cheer yourself up.

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Anybody else read the Marvel Legacy yesterday?

    • Why would anyone do that?

      • Dwayne

        I would but I didn’t

        • I thought about it, to build up my review base… but meh. I try to avoid those high-prices books.

          • Dwayne

            I don’t pay those prices either.

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            It was pretty cool. Set up a lot of interesting stuff. A lot of it I didn’t understand because the marvel universe is so vast and complicated, but I just read a cbr column esplaining the details.

  • Facts

    Blade Runner 2049 is 2 hours and 43 minutes? I hope it’s great.

    • Marv

      …holy Jesus Christ lol

          I’ve never made it through the film.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      From what I understand, early reviews are positive

      And has naked Ana de Armas in it!

    • *snore*

    • Mikey

      WOOF! Damn, if you go to a theater with booze you’ll get WASTED.

    • Word is that it is but yeah that gives me pause to going out to the theater for 4 hours when you factor in getting their the half hour of commercials and trailers

      • Facts

        Is it slow moving like the 1st one?

  • The Daily Hollywood Headline Roundup Part 2:

    ABC wanted to drop Agents of Shield but Disney said nuu huu. Evidently it was a mandate that came down from on high. This season of the show will start after ABC burns off the 8eps of Inhumans that starts tomorrow night.

    Lets take you live to ABC execs discussing Marvel TV:
    https://media.tenor.com/images/fdb11d89ab89ebe886046985b51dbb0c/tenor.gif

    After huge ratings Young Sheldon has been given a full season while The Mist has been cancelled after season 1 on what is Spike but will soon be Paramount. I love the mist movie but how do you make that a show without it being the most dragged out piece of garbage ever?

    Michelle Williams is in talks to join Venom.. I thought this was already in production so that seems like bad news to still be negotiating. The movie is to come out one year from next week.

    Denis Vileneuve is in hot demand after Sicario, The Arrival (I didn’t like it but whatever) and the seemingly beloved Blade Runner 2049 everyone wants him. Craig wants him to do the next bond but he has two other projects in mind.
    Evidently thinking his shit don’t stink he wants take box office poison and turn it to gold as he is working on adaptations of both Dune and Cleopatra which both have a history of society saying… yeah… no thanks. Even weirder Angelina Jolie wants to play Cleopatra because she has such great success with sand and sword epics
    (Alexander) and is also 42 years old and quickly turning into a skeleton.

    TNT’s Snowpiercer the TV series has started production. Based on the awesome 2013 Chris Evans movie the show has Jennifer Connelly and Hamilton star Daveed Diggs (no I didn’t have a typo)

    Disney Channel is developing a re-imagining of the 1993 Bette Midler Hocus Pocus. It appears it will be a musical because Kenny Ortega is developing it and he did the High School Musicals and Step Up movies.

    Jude law is set to star with Blake Lively in spy thriller The Rhythm Section based on a series of 4 books about a self-destructive woman who missed a passenger flight with her family and the flight crashed! DUH DUH DUNNN.

    Since no one want to go see Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets leading to 135 Million in loses EuropaCorp is scaling back it’s operations. It’s starting to shit can movie productions and focusing more on tv. This is the company behind recent flops such as Miss Sloane, The Circle and Marv favorite Nine Lives. Their next movie is a 30 million budgeted Lucy sequel

    That’s supposedly the latest Hot Gos From Hollyweird maybe some of you haven’t heard all of this already you big meanies

    • Much better…

    • Marv

      Young Sheldon was pretty good I’m going to start livewatching that.

      • Diddly

        That was the “sneak peak” and it debuts in November!

    • ProjectBlue

      I don’t have Spike, never bothered to download the mist. It sounded like a bad show from reviews

    • DAJackson7

      Why don’t they just make a hocus Pocus sequel? (never saw the first one, but the blond looked cute)

    • I’ve seen basically nothing in the last 10 years or so.

      I don’t watch too many movies either. Enough to be able to talk about them, I guess. Sadly, never have seen Jurassic Park 175 times like cultstatus.

        Yeah. I don’t even know how people have time to watch the same movies over and over. I’m lucky to be able to get through a whole movie once.

          A lot of times I watch stuff while eating dinner, or throw something on as background noise

    Last year, Ronald White wrote an 800 page book about Ulysses S. Grant that got strong reviews.

    Now, Ron Chernow (dude who wrote Alexander Hamilton) is all “Oh yeah, pal? Here’s an 1100 page book about Ulysses S. Grant! Now you have the second best book about Grant by a guy named Ron! Fuck you!”

    I’m wondering if a lot of these authors hate each other and there’s all politics and drama like in other lines of work.

    • Marv

      Oh I’m sure. There was a huge fight over who was going to write the Jobs biography before Isaacson won out.

      • Miko363

        You might say all the other writers….did the job there?

        HOW BOUT IT

        • Marv

          Or I might not.

    • TatR!

      There was a historian called Orlando Figes I think it was who was found to be leaving bad reviews on other historians books on Amazon under fake names and giving his own books good reviews

      • Miko363

        I have one of his books on my shelf from like 15 years ago. That’s…actually pretty lame of him.

        • TatR!

          Oh he’s a great writer! I have some 1000 page tome on Russia that was amazing. Here’s the story: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2010/apr/23/historian-orlando-figes-amazon-reviews-rivals

            Yeah!

            Oh wow this story! He pulled a Peyton and tried to blame the posts on his wife!

          • TatR!

            He actually wrote this about his own book smh

            “A fascinating book about the interior lives of ordinary Russians … it tells us more about the Soviet system than any other book I know. Beautifully written, it is a rich and deeply moving history, which leaves the reader awed, humbled, yet uplifted … Figes visits their ordeals with enormous compassion, and he brings their history to life with his superb story-telling skills. I hope he writes for ever.”

    • DAJackson7

      I wear Cowboy boots everyday…i hate wearing shoes

      • Blackjack Jowalsen

        Our principal wears boots all the time. I can probably wear them instead of dress shoes so I can actually wear comfortable socks.

        • She has breast cancer and you have those meetings…. I put 2 and 2 together

          • Matt_InGeeked

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Careful, this is how Caliber got started down his dark path!!

        I don’t leave money on the table, only memories.

        • Devin Harris

          and the prostitutes are okay with that? Seems like the last thing they would want

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Who cares? They’re prostitutes!

    This is miserable we’ve been on the road three hours and gotten roughly 100 miles because we have to stop any time one of their kids wants a different drink or bathroom or because they left one of their 20 tablets in the trunk.

    I’m never giving my son a goddamn thing so he doesn’t get spoiled like this lol

    • Facts

      20 tablets is too many tablets.

    • Diddly

      Kids shouldn’t have tablets anyway

      • ProjectBlue

        Eh, depends on use and restrictions. As long as they’re not used as zombie creation devices, might as well jump in and at least use the variety of education apps available

      • Devin Harris

        Spoken by a man with no kids

      • RudoWakening

        What’s wrong with teaching your kids to carve stone?

  • Facts

    I was told no as a kid all the time and look how I turned out!

    *goes to buy whatever*

    • ProjectBlue

      The kids never told no are amazing joys to have in the classroom, just super duper kids. The best.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    You can’t just say ‘no’ all the time with no positive reinforcement, though, because you’ll just end up raising future serial killers or DMV workers.

    • ProjectBlue

      Of course, but if we’re playing all or nothing, I’d take always no over never no.

  • Devin Harris

    log peeling and weights are catching up to me. I may need to take this evening off. How in the world does anyone over 35 play pro sports? It’s one thing to be on the roster, but it’s another thing to practice and play.

    • ProjectBlue

      If they’re clean, money, every legit medicine there is and massage/hot tub/ice bath/oxygen tanks. Otherwise money and enough roids to lift a planet

      • Devin Harris

        Someone on tv said this morning that LeBron spends 2 million a year on his body. Trainers, chefs and all that jazz. Still can’t see it taking away the aches and pains that come with aging. I don’t care what you are on

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          At some point it will all catch up to you

    • The Silver Fox

      Then you have people like this:

      • Devin Harris

        It’s impressive that he can do those things but I still guarantee you he was sore as shit when he got home that night

    • DAJackson7

      I’ve put on too much weight at this new job (desk job, no running around) so i’ve been working out for the last three weeks…every day. I think i need a break then i see my fat belly still in the mirror and change my mind.
      That log peeling will get you though, at my peak physical condition my then 78 year old grandpa could still out work me on the sawmill at our farm.

      • Devin Harris

        I’ve found that lifting weights have helped very little with log peeling. It’s using completely different muscles. Some I didn’t even know existed. That’s why those old dudes can outwork us. We aren’t trained for that life.

    Mike Tyson once said, “everyone has a plan until they are punched in the mouth.” I say every parent has a plan until their kid cries.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Especially in public. That said, my parents took great pains to train us at home long before we made our public debuts, thus they could take us anywhere.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    The thing is, our great-grandparents could eat red meat and fried foods and eggs and drink heavily because they then went out and worked it all off. Their kids ate all that and then went to sit in an office all day, which is why they started dropping dead at 50.

    • The Silver Fox

      All four of my grandparents were like that, plus three of them smoked for decades, and all lived to at least 90, with one living over 100 years.

    • TatR!

  • TatR!

    • RudoWakening

      Sounds about right.

  • RudoWakening

    I’ve finally figured it out. I know what it is that I hate most about these twats bitching about NFL players protesting: lazy racism.

    Like, just come right out and say “I hate niggers” or something like that. The veiled racism under a pall of “THE TROOPS DIED FOR YOUR FREEDOMS” is lazy bullshit and it’s infuriating. At least that fire chief cunt got right to the point.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      I have family from Texas on Facebook that includes one that used to be in the military and one that is currently a cop. Unfortunately, they live down to the combination of those three stereotypes.

      They just blindly observe the act, apply their own incorrect reasoning they can disagree with without facing the actual issue that is being protested.

  • Devin Harris

    “If you intentionally lie about committing violations, your career is over,” Meyer said during a call-in radio show on 97.1 The Fan in Columbus. “You’re not suspended for two games (or) some of the silly penalties you have, you can’t talk to a recruit for a week and a half or something like that. No. You’re finished. That will clean up some things.”

    Urbz, I don’t think this is the time to be talking tough
