$97 mil later, NINJA TURTLES 2 gets a release date

The buildup.. the virtually nude images of Megan Fox.. the thumbs..
All of it culminated this weekend in a show of turtle power strength.. the heroes in a half shell weren't supposed to do as good as they did.. but $65 mil domestic and $97 mil worldwide dollars later, the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES are partying like it's still the 20th century..

And now, with a successful weekend behind them, PARAMOUNT has announced that NINJA TURTLES 2 has a sequel and release date: June 3, 2016--less than two years from now..

Michael Bay will return .. obviously no word on who will play April O'Neill, but if she was good enough to do it the first time, chances are Megan Fox will be asked again..

That's of course unless Fox decides to poke her thumb at Bay in the post-release era.. TRANSFORMERS behind them.. money talks. Mom Fox may not want to risk basking in the glow of April's yellow in'16..




STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
