Jupiter Ascending - Trailer
I’ll just… let me just… I’m going to put this here. It’s the trailer for Jupiter Ascending, a new movie from the Wachowskis. You have my attention.
This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show my guest is Dave Dobson, the creator of Snood. in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, Dave sold millions of Snood registration codes one-by-one, collecting checks through the mail. The most impressive part? He did it all while studying and teaching geology.
In this episode we discuss how Snood came to be, how it’s different from Puzzle Bobble, and how it went viral before social media.
I hope you guys are still listening to the Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show. It’s been great.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Trailer
After two days of me ranting about Spider-Man, I thought I’d be done. But today Sony released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. *sigh*
Well, I’ve watched it twice. I like the stuff about Peters parents, but I liked it when it was promised in the first film too. It does look like it’ll be more prevalent in this film which is great. The story of Peter’s parents is the best thing this franchise has going for it.
I’m not into what they’ve done to Electro. Electro is my favorite Spider-Man villain. I liked that Spider-Man had to solve how to beat him, because webs wouldn’t stick, and punching him would cause electrocution. Spidey figured out that if he wore rubber booties and gloves he would be fine. It was the perfect combo of the brains of Peter Parker and the fighting style of Spider-Man.
And Electro wasn’t just muscle for Oscorp. He was his own person with his own reasons for hating Spider-Man. The opening VO says “Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make” … but it’s not more enemies, it’s one enemy. One your father made. Rhino, Electro, Goblin… they’re all having their strings pulled by Oscorp / Norman Osborn.
Oh, and at 1:15 in, you can see Vulture’s wings and Dr Octopus arms. I can bet we’ll see those in 3.
Would love to know what you guys think.
Yesterday when I speculated that Diana Prince might be Bruce or Clark’s love interest in the Man of a Steel sequel, some of you took what I was saying the wrong way. I was speculating who Diana Prince might be “acting as”, not how Wonder Woman will be defined. I can totally see Diana under cover for most of the movie as Diana Prince before revealing herself as Wonder Woman.
Hope that clears that up.
Since I just reblogged the first part, I feel I should also reblog this.
After my intial reaction to Batman vs. Superman (which is not the title for the film) earlier this year, I mentioned a few times on this site that I was confident Wonder Woman would be appearing in the Man of Steel sequel. What I wasn’t sure of is who would be playing her.
Well, here she is: Gal Gadot! I want to wish Gal (above images via Stndrd) good luck, those are some mighty big boots to fill.
I noticed that in all the press releases, they refer to her a Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. What that says to me is that we’ll be seeing Wonder Woman in her alter ego for a good portion of the film. But how? As Bruce’s love interest? As Superman’s love interest? As a bad ass government operative? Who knows. I just hope Zack Snyder gives this character the respect she deserves in her big screen debut…
DCU has been on the Wonder Woman beat for some time. I’m glad to see it finally paying off.
