Among friends we also made a warm and welcoming call to the new women of Ghostbusters which raked in about $46 million dollars over the weekend, coming in second in the box office right under Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life of Pets.
The film was packed with tons of amazingly awesome ghoulish (safe for the whole family) special effects complete with buckets of projectile slime and a slew of cameos that will cheer up any die-hard fans of the original series.
The film stars Kristen Wiig (Erin Gilbert), Leslie Jones (Patty Tolan), Melissa McCarthy (Abby Yates), and Kate McKinnon (Jillian Holtzmann) and a new version of the Ghostbuster’s theme song by Fallout Boy feat. Missy Elliott. Put the sandwich down and go see it now.
Get this into your life ASAP!
There are tons of things to do at the OCFair including chowing down on deep-fried chocolate covered bacon or butter and then throwing it all up on the G-Force extreme pictured above. Make sure you slather on the sunscreen and bring plenty of sealed bottle of water because this fair is hot, hot, hot! We were thoroughly entertained by the traveling steampunk inspired Dragon Knights micro-circus parade that winded it’s way through the fairgrounds. The entertainment is top notch with many shaded venues and rooms that are air-conditioned to beat the heat while you take in some lovely Orange County culture. For more information on the event please visit the OCFair website here.
Even though the critics from Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer gave the film 34%, I liked how the movie was respectfully crafted, and so did many of the fans giving it a 74% in the Audience Score. I loved the way the film showcased the African people and a smidgen of their culture and how greed and corruption threatens all life.
Director David Yates, most known for his work on the Harry Potter sequels, did a wonderful job of marrying the human world with the myriad of animals and tangled vines of the jungle.
Utilizing Tarzan, aka John Clayton (ALEXANDER SKARSGÅRD - most recently know as True Blood's Eric Northman) as a guide through the camouflage of the jungle with the aid of some old family natives and wild friends he faces the task of trying to find and free the people of the land and free his love and wife. Jane (Margot Robbie - mostly known for her work in The Wolf of Wall Street and Z for Zachariah).
The film had an overall neutral and muted color pallet thanks to Cinematographer Henry Braham (The Golden Compass, Flyboys). When back in the "Civilized" world there would be more color yet still muted reflecting the attitude and mood of the 1st world, also characterized by the overcast, fog and cloudy weather. The jungle was no brighter thanks to Senior Art Director David Allday (Maleficent, John Carter) whom painted another muted landscape that avoided much color, showcasing a very less fairytale approach to the Trazan story.
Special kudos to George Washington Williams (Samuel L. Jackson - Pulp Fiction, Django, Captain America The Winter Soldier) for his role as the side kick with more kick than usual partners. His performance was tastefully crafted to add some of the quintessential Jacksoness that he always brings, but was a little milder than usual, I assume, because of the PG-13 rating and the younger audience that David wanted to bring into the theater.
☺ We are filled with joy to live in a country that provides us room to grow, love, work and strive for greatness. Happy 4th of July from Chirons Chorus and many thanks for all who work tirelessly to protect #America and keep humans from destroying each other. #hoofapproved #4thofjuly #independenceday #freedom #creation #love #light #art #glazer #united #unitedwestand #glazerjonze #usa #flag
Listen to the latest version of the Ghostbusters song (I'm Not Afraid) by Fall Out Boy feat. Missy Elliott.
We are digging the all new #Wolverine #laurakinny #X23 we know we are a little late on the train, but better late than never. (Spoiler alert + Read the comic first before going on below.)
Backstory: Laura Kinny aka X-23 was used for a weapon for most of her life working for an organization called the Facility. Until she broke free found the X-men and the original Wolverine. Now guided by the spirit of the original Wolverine #OldManLogan he help keep her leveled as much as he can. But as she is his clone she has adopted manny of Old Man Logans old character traits of being short tempered, hot headed and quick to action without much thought in the outcome. That's what makes X-23 so exciting, yeah she may decide to jump off of the Eiffel tower without definite conformation that there will be someone (Angel) to scoop her up before she gets up close and personal with the earth.
What interesting this time around is the once uber masculine Wolverine is now female and continues a great legacy of righting wrongs, vanquishing evil doers and fighting for what she believes in with not six but four deadly adamantium-coated bone claws in her hands and two in her feet.
Like the original Wolverine X-23 has a regenerative healing factor, superhuman strength, senses, speed and reflexes. Plus, it's a refreshing take on a super-hero favorite.
Great job @TomTaylor #DavidLopez #DavidNavarrot #NathanFairbairn #vcsCoryPetit #MannyMederos @Bengal #Bengal #JephYork #ChristinaHarrington #MarkPaniccia @JoeQuesada #JoeQuesada #AxelAlonso #DanBuckley #AlanFine
