Every week the entertainment world provides us with the unfortunate, the inexcusable, and the questionable. Here are this week’s disappointments.
None of this is surprising or even worthy of mention. When they figure out how to get Harold Ramis to appear in the film, wake me up.
Hugh Jackman played Wolverine in seven movies. One and a half of those movies were good. Maybe we should stop pretending his Wolverine was some kind of genre defining role and that we’ll all be lamenting his departure. Tom Hardy is already a better Wolverine than Jackman based on the grunting he did in Fury Road.
Matt Damon says he’d star in a Daredevil movie if Christopher Nolan directs
Apparently Damon does not have a Netflix subscription. Nor does he use IMDb. Christopher Nolan doing a Marvel movie is about as likely as a Harold Ramis cameo in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters.
Because having the name ‘Prometheus‘ in the sequel’s title would be bad for business since it would remind us of Prometheus. The only way I’m sitting through another one of these is if a title card appears that reads “Sorry about the first one… Let’s try this again.”
I’m guessing it’s not a long expedition. Or motorized transportation is involved.
How bad off are you when the guy from Green Lantern is showering you with sympathy?
I’ll take ‘Things that murder anticipation for $800, Alex’
See you next week.
