JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM Will Have the Biggest Action Scene in Franchise History


There is no doubt one of the most anticipated movies of next year is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The sequel certainly has a lot to live up to considering Jurassic World is the fourth biggest movie of all time worldwide. And if it’s action you’re hoping for, Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona tells Empire the film will have a lot of action and some like we've never seen before:

Fallen Kingdom [starts] with a massive action piece that feels like a James Bond prologue,” he tells us. “And in the centre there is the biggest set-piece ever done for a Jurassic movie.”

It is possible that the “biggest set-piece” he's talking about is the volcano escape scene we see in the trailer. Co-writer Colin Trevorrow has said that everything we see in the trailer takes place during the first hour of the film, so there is a good chance that scene is the last big action scene revealed in that preview. There is also a chance that Universal is holding back footage to save the best stuff for audiences when its finally released.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theaters on June 22, 2018.

A Deleted Scene From THE BREAKFAST CLUB Surfaces After 30 Years

I'm a huge fan of The Breakfast Club. I love that movie and I was surprised to see a never-before-seen deleted scene from the film surface online after 30 years. The scene features a little moment between Molly Ringwald’s Claire and Ally Sheedy’s Allison.

On January 2nd, Criterion Collection is a new edition of the film which will contain 50 minutes of material that has never been released. That material will offer lots of cool insights into the film and I'm definitely looking forward to it!

The deleted scene was shared by Vulture, and in it, Claire makes an attempt to do a little bonding with Allison. It's a pretty awkward exchange as Allison's cringe-worthy eating habits are discussed. It eventually leads to Allison picking up a chip out of the bathroom sink and shoving it in her mouth.

I'll tell you what, had this scene stayed in the movie, her eating that nasty chip from the sink is all I would have been thinking about when she kissed Emilio Estevez at the end of the movie! You can watch the clip below.

Criterion Collection’s release of The Breakfast Club includes the following features:

  • 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Alternate 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Audio commentary from 2008 featuring actors Anthony Michael Hall and Judd Nelson
  • New interviews with actors Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy
  • New video essay featuring director John Hughes’s production notes, read by Nelson
  • Documentary from 2008 featuring interviews with cast and crew
  • Fifty minutes of never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes
  • Rare promotional and archival interviews
  • Excerpts from a 1985 American Film Institute seminar with Hughes
  • 1999 radio interview with Hughes
  • Segment from a 1985 episode of NBC’s Today featuring the film’s cast
  • Audio interview with Ringwald from a 2014 episode of This American Life
  • Trailer
  • PLUS: An essay by author and critic David Kamp

This Fan-Made BLEACH Animated Short is Incredible

The Bleach anime ended in 2012 with the end of the Fullbringer Arc which is a shame because the 1000 Year Blood War Arc was fantastic, but didn’t finish in the manga until 2016. This 4-year gap would’ve just led to more filler which is annoying. I hate filler seasons with a passion. They’re pointless and don't contribute to the story. Whenever I watch Bleach, I make sure to skip the Bount Arc and the Zanpakuto Arc and any other filler storylines because they slow down the show. That being said, if you avoid the filler episodes like I do, Bleach is a great anime. Yes, the plot gets convoluted a little and it suffers from a serious case of only-the-protagonist-can-do-anything as well as a bigger case of the villain-started-out-well-thought-out-but-then-we-made-him-too-powerful syndrome that happens in a lot of anime. However, because the anime ended before the manga, we were never treated to the end of the Tite Kubo’s story which has some awesome moments as well as some crazy moments like when the Gotei 13 gets wrecked. I’m talking Byakuya-Kuchiki-ends-up-in-a-fatal-coma wrecked. You can watch the end of the fight that leads to Byakuya being in critical condition thanks to the talent at Retro Ryno that went ahead and animated it.

Overall, the animation is great. It's a different style than the anime, but I like it. The music is perfect for the situation and the voices were well thought out. Sadly, they only animated the last bit of the fight so Byakuya is already very injured at this point. His opponent is a Quincy by the name of As Nodt and if you want to learn more about the story, go read the manga. The whole fight starts around Chapter 494, but I would recommend starting from the beginning of the arc around Chapter 480. I wish they’d revive the anime just to help bring the last arc to life. Do you want to see the final arc presented in the anime, or are you fine just reading it?

How cool would it be to see Star Wars or Star Trek in space? That would be freaking awesome to me. Well, awesome once I got over the sheer terror of being in space and then watch a movie where a lot of things in space blow up. It would be fun. Well, the crew aboard the International Space Station got the privilege of viewing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That would so cool. Better yet, we got a picture of their theater room. It’s not impressive from a theater standpoint. No large screen or surround sound system, but does it matter? They’re in space! I love how they have their little drink bags as if they’re at the theater enjoying their favorite snacks. What movie would you want to watch while in space?


The Five Stages of Grief Applies to Netflix Too


We’ve all been there. Binging a show on Netflix when after episode 4 or 5 it asks us “Are you still watching.” Netflix means well with this message. It wants to make sure we don’t miss anything and lose our place. Sadly, we also see it as Netflix mocking us. Making us acknowledge our pathetic lives of not having plans outside of watching a show on Netflix that we’ve probably already seen. Well, a new video from Studio C helps illustrate "The 5 Stages of Netflix". Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. You may recognize these as the five stages of grief, but I assure you it can apply to Netflix as well. How often do you find yourself in this vicious cycle while watching your favorite shows?

Cast Photo From STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE Goes Viral 18 Years After Being Taken

Even though most Star Wars fans agree that Episode I: The Phantom Menace is the worst Star Wars prequel film, it still holds a special place in all of our hearts, mostly because it symbolizes the rebirth of a saga that we all love. Now a promotional cast photo from 1999 film has resurfaced on Reddit, and it's giving the 18-year-old photo a second life.

This Phantom Menace cast photo is 18 years old from StarWars

The photo shows the film's core actors Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn), Natalie Portman (Padmé Amidala) and Jake Lloyd (Anakin Skywalker).

A lot has changed in the Star Wars galaxy since this photo was taken, including 2 more prequel films, an animated movie, two animated series, and 3 (soon to be 4) Disney-era films. A standalone Obi-Wan movie is in development from Disney-owned Lucasfilm, and The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has been tapped to develop a whole new trilogy. WOW!

It's still fun to see things from this time period, when Star Wars excitement was on the rise as a new trilogy was coming and the hope that it would be something great! Little did we know...
