Jupiter Ascending. A new Science Fiction film coming from The Wachowskis which is based on…wait for it…nothing. It’s not based on a book, a TV show, a comic book, a board game, or a video game. It’s not a prequel, sequel, or gritty reboot. It is, in theory, an original property though I’m sure hard core SciFi fans will be able to draw comparisons to other properties.

It’s been delayed a couple of times and is currently scheduled for release in February 2015. It’s hard to say if it will be good or not but it’s definitely worth a look.

The only question is how long will Sean Bean survive and who will kill him this time.

The Big Lebowski is one of those films. Call it a cult classic or whatever you want but it’s just one of those films that broke into the nefarious culture zeitgeist so many of us have gotten sucked into and just won’t let go. Now, you can celebrate it’s glory in pinball form.

Is it necessary? No. Is it crass merchandising at its finest? Yes. Is it amazing and do you you want one in you basement? Absolutely.

And April Fool’s Day is months away.

That’s right, folks. Netflix wants you to enjoy more of Adam Sandler so much they’s asked him to produce exclusive content for them. This actually makes sense since his recent movies probably did better on the content streaming service than on movie screens.

I am constantly at odds with my feelings towards Sandler’s career. Don’t get me wrong. I am not a fan of his recent films for the most part. But his early career was pretty gosh darn funny. Billy Madison. Happy Gilmore. The Wedding Singer. And more recently, his production company released one of my favorite films, Grandma’s Boy. I’ve never fully written the man off and won’t start now, for better or worse. 

I have a similar soft spot for Jim Carrey.

We don’t really know what the “plots” of these new films will have but we can only hope for more installments in the Grown Ups franchise, or perhaps at least an expanded Grown Ups film universe. If not, we’ll be left wondering what role Kevin James, David Spade, and other Sandler cohorts will play.

If you watched the season opener of The Simpsons this year, then you were treated to a couch gag created by Don Hertzfeldt. He is a multi-award winning animator and indie filmmaker. It was innovative, ingenious, and hilarious but, unfortunately, it went over a lot of people’s heads.

But wasn’t that kind of the point?

A tour through the comments on YouTube shows that there is a large segment of the population who just didn’t get it and took this couch gag as an example of the overall decline of The Simpsons. If anything, it is a sign of their continued relevance as they have been bringing in interesting creators to reinvigorate the opening tradition. Didn’t anyone catch Bill Plympton’s epic contribution?

This was the hardest I’ve laughed at a couch gag since…well, possibly ever. If you didn’t get it, that’s cool. If you didn’t laugh at it, that’s cool. And if you just didn’t like it, that’s cool, too. But just because you didn’t get it, laugh at it, or personally like it doesn’t mean it isn’t brilliant.

And it is.

The endless barrage of Deadpool news continues. Ryan Reynolds is getting his wish after the test footage he helped put together popped up online. Years after a disastrous appearance in a terrible Wolverine film, the Merc with a Mouth is coming to theatres.

February.

2016.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The Deadpool film drops. There are no words, only hopes that it won’t suck. And as long as Ryan Reynolds is the lead, there is a damn good chance it won`t. Casting really wasn’t the issue with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Until then, let me leave this here for you.
