I like the melody line.
With (very minor) surgery in August. Apparently it’s fallout from my gall bladder surgery, but nobody’s panicking or anything. I am just to avoid heavy lifting for the next month or so and try not to eat anything that will make my bowels explode.
…Is this oversharing? This is probably oversharing. Anyway, that was my day.
That Abomination looks like the same one from the Ed Norton Hulk (you gotta wonder if Ed regrets not taking that contract). Nice to see somebody remember that particular movie, honestly. I particularly liked how they put the whole damn origin story in the opening credits, because they wanted to save me valuable time. I enjoyed the consideration.
I don’t have many people on the newsletter, and the newsletter is very sporadic because I have difficulty coming up with Flying Koala-related things to say every week. I dunno what to use instead, though. Somebody I know seems to be getting good results from their free Substack?
PS: The reason for considering a switch is due to Things We Do Not Talk About Here; suffice it to say that I’d rather switch now, then have to switch later, and I’ve never quite trusted Mailchimp anyway.
One area the director will not revisit is Jaws. Deadline heard recently that Universal broached the subject to reboot Spielberg’s breakout classic, with Spielberg producing, and the answer was a firm no.
…Personally, I might have preferred that Spielberg had responded to such a highly impertinent question by dangling the unlucky Universal suit over a shark tank, but that would have been unethical. After all, you don’t blame the messenger for the message. Life is not a Conan movie. And JAWS should not be remade.
PS: I don’t actually want to see a Spielberg Conan movie. I want to see a Guy Ritchie Conan movie, set in Conan’s thief days.
Do we really have to make Harrison Ford do this?
Production on Lucasfilm’s long-in-development Indiana Jones 5 has suffered its first setback, with franchise star Harrison Ford sustaining a shoulder injury while rehearsing for one of the film’s many fight sequences. Further details about the severity of the 78-year-old actor’s injury hasn’t been disclosed.
I mean, really? Who here commanded that this movie be made? Who is the person with such a heart of stone? Ford should be at home, taking his ease. Let him rest!
…Let him rest.
Then again, I like the Disney+ MCU shows generally. LOKI in particular is the sort of thing that can only be made when a studio has more money than God and is amusing itself by having Tom Hiddleston sing in Norwegian. Which he does a pretty good job at, mind you.
I know, I know. But the family wants the channel and we’re paying for it, so I might as well enjoy the stuff I like.
