Fast and Furious 7

I confess that I love this movie franchise more and more as it goes on. The first movie was a glorious cheesefest remake-in-spirit of Point Break. The second was a cheesy over the top take on Miami Vice. The third was just awesomely cheesy. And then at some point, they decided to say, screw any tenuous connection with reality and just make a live action video game. And let’s add the Rock. And Jason Stathem. And now Kurt Russell.


Atlas Shrugged

The producers are still working on their final movie adaptation of Ayn Rand’s screed to arrogant rich *******, in which all of the aforementioned arrogant rich ******** decide to get back at us ungrateful plebes for taxing them and asking them to abide by environmental regulations by hightailing it to a secret gated community and depriving us of their genius, thereby ensuring that our world fell to pieces while they toasted with champagne laughing. At least until their utopia realized that they had no farmers, laborers, or any of the other essential pieces required to make a community sustainable and degenerated into cannibalistic anarchy while back in the real world we collectively shrugged our shoulders at their disappearances, installed new CEOs (for less money), and continued on undisturbed.

Anyway, apparently the lesson they walked away with from Atlas Shrugged is that since people were stupid enough to take this book seriously, they’re probably stupid enough to give money to make a third movie even though the last two movies in the series were bombs that lost millions.

They’re probably right.


And here’s a picture of Professor X and Magneto chowing down on hot dogs and corn on the cob at Coney Island which is 100 different kinds of awesome.


Man of Steel 2: Batman vs. Superman vs. Godzilla meets Abbot and Costello and the Mummy

So there’s a casting call out for a strong woman between the ages of 25 to 35, so everyone and their mother is jumping to the conclusion that Wonder Woman will appear in the sequel, which it’s so cute that they still think Warner Brothers will make a Justice League movie, bless their hearts.

My first thought would be Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl. My second thought would be Mercy, Lex Luthor’s body guard and henchwoman. My third thought would be one of Darkseid’s Female Furies. After that, Maxima, Big Barda, Hawkgirl, Superwoman (evil Wonder Woman), Power Girl, Zatanna, Fire, Ice, Jade, the girl Wonder Twin, Wendy of Superfriends infamy, and then Wonder Woman.
