THE MAN OF STEEL FOR FATHER'S DAY

Theater goers across the world are flocking to see a semi-Jesus in blue and red, modern of course, fly across the friendly skies and battle foes with ease.. 

MAN OF STEEL is set to be a big movie, raking in $151 mil worldwide and most likely $125 or more mil in the United States..

WARNER is boasting of strong Saturday matinees. 

Even more, Saturday night and even Sunday daytime sales are expected to be strong..

An email the other day from the CINEMA PSYCHO (read his site if you have not already) reminded me that, regardless of what people like Spielberg or Lucas may say, Hollywood may not implode as they predict. 

The PSYCHO also told me to watch for a strong presence of the MAN OF STEEL this weekend with robust ticket sales. He was right.. 

Though it was highly predictable the movie would be great, it certainly puts into renewed perspective the strong possibility that those predictions of doom and gloom for the Hollywood sign are overdone..

Ticket sales still developing..
Date night Saturday. Dinner after..
Father's day dinner first, movie to follow..

MAN OF STEEL rises.

FINALLY FRIDAY UPDATE

FRIDAY JUNE 14 2013

National interests. . international affairs.. the red line has been crossed. Last night, it was learned that the United States believes Syria's government has used chemical weapons against people (earlier reports indicated that the rebels the US was supporting used them) .. the 'red line' as it was known was apparently crossed. Now action will take place.. and maybe Senator Stinky will get his wish.. Do we really want another war?? Do we even realize another war is beginning?
What we know about Syria right now:
Does it matter what the facts are..?

Life goes on, in a sense.. the photo posted of the baseball player and the fire in the background: Peter McEvoy posted it on his Twitter late Tuesday visible from behind home plate Pine Creek High School, just southwest of the evacuation area. (Credit: Peter McEvoy/Twitter).. A frightening image in a sense.. very eerie..
The latest on the wildfire conditions: 15,000 Acres charred 94,000 Acres under mandatory evac, 13,000 Homes, 38,000 people evacuated, Expected wind gusts: 35 mph, Single digit humid





If you were pulled over at roadblocks this past weekend in Alabama, chances are you were asked for a DNA sample.. AL.COM is reporting that St. Clair and Bibb County residents who were stopped at several roadblocks set up and were asked for a voluntary samples of blood and DNA (for a study, according to the report) .. a study.. hmm.. were they studying something for scientific research, or were they studying how far they could make innocents motorists go in giving their own blood and DNA?

Genetically modified frankenfoods are leading to diseases in pigs.. inflamed stomachs and other conditions.. Incidentally, my dad is a pretty good cook. And over the past few months, each time he made pork chops, he has claimed the meat is getting tougher and tougher--and he cooks it the same as he did years back when a pork chop was tender and juicy. If GM feed has this much of an effect on the pigs' organs, does it not make sense to think the meat would also change in texture and taste?








HGTV shame: Clyde Lewis points out that they are giving their viewers reccomendations on how to use an American flag: Use it as a tablecloth! That's right, as Lewis points out, the decoration tip for your July 4th BBQ is in direct conflict with the US Flag Code. Maybe the television network will decide what to do with those smaller flags that often grace cemetaries. Toilet paper perhaps? Why not.. what's the difference between that and a brown baked bean stain on your once proud ragged flag?

Steven Spielberg Predicts 'Implosion' of Film Industry

Steven Spielberg on Wednesday predicted an “implosion” in the film industry is inevitable, whereby a half dozen or so $250 million movies flop at the box office and alter the industry forever. What comes next — or even before then — will be price variances at movie theaters, where “you’re gonna have to pay $25 for the next Iron Man, you’re probably only going to have to pay $7 to see Lincoln.” He also said that Lincoln came “this close” to being an HBO movie instead of a theatrical release.
This is actually quite an amazing story.. The ‘implosion of the film industry’ as predicted by film industry insiders is like the President saying that the government has failed.. Amazing stuff.  And they are right, though, really. Big budget films so often don’t do much for people anymore. Sometimes, in summer, one makes a couple bucks. But in the end, people are searching for something more.
I hate to keep coming back to this, but it brings me back to the PURGE. Some have called the movie disgusting, and revolting. I even got a private message informing my that a room in hell is awaiting me for even writing about the PURGE. But it’s how movies should be marketed in our age. Twitter. Facebook. Tumblr. These are the places where this generation go, nightly.. daily.. whenever-ly. 
To make cash, these films are going to have to present not only big CGI effects, but also ………a story. Remember when movies had a story?
Think about this: The ONLY reason anyone knows someone is making another TRANSFORMERS movie is because there are rumors that Thumbsy-Megan Fox is going to make a cameo in it. Hollywood is clearly out of ideas. They may have state of the art graphics, but certainly not state of the art storylines…
I still think that is movie theaters disappear we will miss them. Hell, I miss drive-ins, and I wasn’t even alive for the period of time in which they were held in high esteem!
Indie movies will rule.. the future is bright for bright people—and not for the old and antiquated Hollywood sign that still hovers over a dilapidated and polluted city.
There is nothing wrong with change. And when change is good, it’s even better.
I predict movies of the future will be better than movies of today.
And that isn’t bad at all, if you want true entertainment.
(But… I hope we keep the stadium seating and the popcorn.. because ‘date night’ on an iPhone just sounds plain boring)
