True Blood : True To The End?

670px-True-Blood-Wiki_Slider_Chatas many of you know, today was the final episode of the final season of True Blood, made ever popular with the hastag #TrueToTheEnd or #GoodbyesSuck. so was it worth it? watching all 92 episodes until todays final episode? definitely, even if the final episode was as exciting as a ‘Murder She Wrote’ episode from the ’80’s. if you don’t know what that is, ask your grandma, i’m sure she still watches it on ‘oldies late night’ on TVLand, (5-7pm nightly). the final season started off really strong, with the Hep V vampires terrorizing more and more, culminating with every person left dead in a neighboring Bon Temps town. it was starting to look like an episode of Walking Dead; Hep V turning the world into a zombie-like apocalypse. but but, that all ended with the battle at Fangtasia, which was a good episode, but the True Blood excitement you’ve grown to love over 7 years ended there. what followed was 6 episodes of goodbyes and closure, but they didn’t even do that for every character. i appreciate not leaving the fans hanging-uh hum ‘Alphas,’  but really hurry it up already and get to the real reason we hang on every episode: the excitement, the cliff hangers, the twists, but noop, just long sappy goodbyes and concluding happy endings for most, even Twilight teen girls were like #lame (actual twitter quote). every previous season had some sort of hard, impossible adversary, something overwhelming that you just knew was going to kill a main character, and they usually did. but this last season, which really ended in episode 4, didn’t have that. the Hep V vamps were that, and should have been that through to episode 10, instead they stopped at ep 4 and switched to the Okuza, the makers of Tru Blood (yes, you spell it without the e when you are referring to the synthetic blood and not the title of the show). who cares about the Okuza? they really weren’t that powerful, even Eric killed 15 of them without blinking before he had the cure. it would have made more sense that the head of the Okuza was a vampire, hence the motivation to create  & fund the product. in a previous episode they said that Louis Pasture created the synthetic blood, Tru Blood; why not have him be the head of the Okuza? it would have been really cool to have 2 adversaries, the Okuza & the Hep V vamps all striving for power, fighting over Sarah Newlin, ripping people out of their homes, killing them left and right, giving Sam a real reason to leave the town he loves. but noop, noop, just goodbyes for 6 episodes.true-blood-season-7-trailer

Bill the Vampire (Andy still calls him that) did NOT say “Soo-kie” in his usual voice, he did, however, say it in a soft dying voice. SUPER BIG ASS SPOILER HERE: so it would have been perfectly plausible to have Bill survive Hep V and become human. the dwarf doctor could have diagnosed that a portion the Blood of Lillith remained inert inside of Bill & mixed with Fairy blood & Hep V causing some sort of infusion, making him human; you know, if you wanted to have Bill & Sookie together forever, like many do. we didn’t get that. we got Sookie pregnant with some random dude we never met. we didn’t even see his face. he has a beard, that’s all we know. he could be a real douche or a warlock were-hamster, we don’t know. we’re saying goodbye to Sookie, but we don’t know if she’s in good hands or not. we do know that Bill really sucker punched her with emotional abuse in the final episode, asking her to use up her light and not be Fae anymore. anyway, they had a sweet goodbye, in the grave of all places. that’s still a lot to put on someone, poor Sookie, having to kill Bill (haha-waited this whole article so i could put those words together, and yes, a stake through the heart is an exploding heart technique), with a stake & then wearing his goo. killing the one you love, can you really move on after that? i’m surprised Sookie doesn’t have PTSD after all she’s been through. what? i warned you i would spoil it. this ending may have been a tribute to the author of the book series, ‘the Southern Vampire Mysteries,’ Charlaine Harris; as she never wanted Sookie to settle with a vampire; (she actually had Sookie & Sam end up together). and why didn’t Sookie’s Fairy Godfather appear to give her advice? he’s always watching & that is definitely his area. mmm…

the best part of the final episode, titled ‘thank you,’ (is it thanking the fans for watching 6 episodes of content that could have been edited out?) anyway..the best part was Eric driving the street racing import car from Tokyo Drift while rockin’ out, with the dead Okuza in the back seat. it was funny too, because it was a lot like Will Ferrel & Kris Katan, ‘A Night at the Roxy,’ “Oooo, baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me no more..” was the merry go-round scene, with Pam & Sarah Newlin, a tribute to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (no, not the tv show (Joss Wheadon / Sarah Michelle Geller), but the movie with Pee Wee Herman & Kristy Swanson)? 

so we’re done, no more Sookie, no more Bill or Eric or Pam’s wit and sass. no more Jasonisms, like “pizza forensics.” no more fabulous Lafayette or Jessica saying, ” Hhhhhoy-Ttah” and everyone else we’ve grown to love over the last 7 years. goodbye Sookie, goodbye Bon Temps, love ya.TrueBlood_AnnaPaquin

Star Wars News : Harrison Ford has recovered & is walking today! & Star Wars movie dates (include a Boba Fett movie!!) & Star Wars Con 2015

comicbookmovie1

Han Solo has been released from the Bantha Tank & is walking around today. so glad Harrison Ford is ok.  previously, a piece of the Star Wars episode VII set, of the Millennium Falcon, fell on Harrison Ford, breaking his ankle. “this [millennium falcon] bucket of bolts [really] is falling apart.” he was rushed to a hospital via helicopter, near Pinewood Studios, england, and has been recovering ever since. today is the first day Harrison Ford is back on his feet and walking around. i hope safety has been improved on the set to protect anyone else from harm.

also in the news, the George Lucas Museum has been confirmed to be built in chicago (the San Francisco Presidio Historical Society just said no too many times, with too many obstacles; the mayor of Chicago made it easy & promised to welcome Star Wars fans (and the Star Wars Tourist income)).

disney is building a Star Wars theme park (location yet unknown).

April 16 2015 is Star Wars Con at anaheim, ca.

 

Star Wars Movie Dates:

dec 18 2015    Star Wars episode VII

summer 2016    Boba Fett   (solo movie)

summer 2017   Star Wars  episode VIII

summer 2018   Han Solo (solo movie)

summer 2019   Star Wars episode IX

summer 2020   Red Five

yep, disney isn’t stopping with Star Wars episode IX; i know you own Lucas Arts now disney, but don’t do the typical disney thing of making sequels ad nauseam, ergo Mighty Ducks 7, Land Before Time 23. i will watch anything with a Lightsaber, but PLEASE continue the quality of the Star Wars franchise, and if you make another Jar Jar, the Mouse will burn…

upcoming Marvel & DC superhero movies 2015 thru 2020

upcoming Marvel & DC superhero movies 2015 thru 2020 (well, sorta. this list is all that we know so far..)

marvel has planned out superhero movies thru 2036, but hasn’t released the titles yet. the race is on to produce a female lead superhero film. marvel will introduce many new female heroines, but the most likely first female lead superheroes will be Black Widow and Capt Marvel (Ms Marvel/Carol Danvers), not either, but both. Capt Marvel will be introduced, most likely in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and aid in the defeat of Thanos in Avengers 3. Black Widow is necessary to further the plot line with Capt America & the Winter Soldier, preparing Bucky to carry the Shield (just in case Steve Rogers “retires” in Avengers 3; Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet is omnipotent, THE most powerful force in the universe; Adam Warlock (yes, that was his cocoon in Guardians of the Galaxy) and every other Marvel superhero will be needed to defeat Thanos (unfortunately fox & sony own some of them; still hoping they might lease them to Marvel). (note: Ultron & Apocalypse, also bad ass, and also most or all Marvel superhero required for victory). DC and warner bros are finally catching on to Marvel’s interconnected story telling (in the movies, of course, both DC and Marvel comics always have had interconnected plot lines). Batman v Superman will launch Wonder Woman and other superheroes into their own upcoming, respective, stand alone movie.  since Wonder Woman has a projected release date of nov 17, 2017, i’m sure Marvel is rushing its plans to release it’s stand alone Black Widow movie first. we can wait for Carol Danvers (“make it great & we will happily wait”), but we know she is coming.

note that some of these dates have yet to be set, by the movie studios, and are listed as general months or seasons. exact dates have been confirmed by the movie studios. some movie titles may change, are listed as  ‘unconfirmed,’ a best-guess scenario based on clues from the movies studios or leaked rumors. often studio situations, marketing, production and contracts change, thus delaying a movie release. studios often reserve release dates years in advance, for a projected plan, but plans do change. for years 2019 and 2020, only reserved dates have been confirmed.

Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice has secured it’s release date!

batman-vs-superman-official-logo-HD

Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice will be released on ..

march 25, 2016.

Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 2.06.48 PM

etch in your calendar & phones now. if you have a paper calendar that mom still gives you every year & you hang on the wall when she comes over (usually for “inspection purposes”) then, remember how to write with your hands and block out that whole day.

batman v superman : dawn of justice is crucial for the dc cinematic universe, as it wont just be a superhero movie, it will launch all of dc heroes, show how they work together, or not/against each other sometimes, and seed so many other characters. i plan on geeking out more than you know, so zack snyder & batfleck, i’m talking to you, don’t make it suck, or or geek s**t storm will rain upon you throughout eternity; yep, geeks never forget, uh-hum, daredevil. it’ll be fine on the bad side & awesome on the good side, like ‘man of steel,’ but with bat battlesuit, wonder woman & superhero cameos; no worries dc fans.

(i know it’s more than a year in advance, but we have to plan ahead for major geek events like this)

GOTHAM tv at SDCC : Erin Richards talks about her role as Barbara Kean on Fox’s Gotham at Comic Con

GOTHAM tv series star Erin Richards talks about her role

GOTHAM, tv series this fall, starring Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, talks about her role on Gotham & Ben McKenzie, (who plays Detective James Gordon on Gotham), at the Gotham zipline event at SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2014.

who is Barbara Kean in the Batman / Gotham City universe? find out here..

Fox’s new tv series, ‘GOTHAM,’ will be a prequel of sorts to the main Batman theme. it takes place in Gotham City, but at an earlier time than most Batman depictions. Bruce Wayne / Batman is young, just after his parent were murdered, as well as the rest of the Batman characters you are familiar with. GOTHAM actually centers around Detective James Gordon, and not Batman / Bruce Wayne and offers a unique spin to a familiar story. as of yet, there will be no cross-overs with the Batman movie franchise.
GOTHAM is, of course, based on Gotham City of DC Comics, who first launched Batman in Detective Comics, 75 years ago, May 1939.

Guardians of the Galaxy : no Nova?

Nova1adigranov
ok comic fans:
there’s no #AdamWarlock in #GuardiansoftheGalaxy & no “apparent” #Nova but Nova is part of the #NovaCorps and there were several different Nova’s in the comics, but i think there are going with the main Nova, #RichardRider as Nova for #Marvel space in the #MCU . in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, #JohnCRiley is #RhomannDey . this character is crucial, as Dey gives Nova, #RichardRider , the #NovaForce giving Rider the powers of Nova. this sequence will most likely be saved for the sequel, #GuardiansoftheGalaxy2 , as well as the appearance of AdamWarlock. i was almost thinking that John C Riley’s disapproving Nova Corps officer, the one who said, “now i’m taking orders from a hamster,” was going to be Richard Rider, but he “apparently” died when the #NovaShield was broken by #Ronan #RonantheAccuser . his character certainly fit as Nova, but it looks like we will have to wait until the sequel or more leaked content; stay tuned ..

Game of Thrones : updates: Myrcella, the future of the Mountain & Lady StoneHeart

Myrcella, Princess for Hire, Aimee Richardson, Game of Thrones actress gets "recast."

Myrcella, Princess for Hire, Aimee Richardson, Game of Thrones actress gets “recast.” this photo is from her vine.

Myrcella actress gets “fired,” not really, but she has been replaced, “recast,” is the proper way of saying you’re fired in the acting biz. Aimee Richardson has been recast for next year’s 2015 season 5. it’s a shame really, as we never really heard her talk or even act; she only appeared on a few episodes. Aimee Richardson was “recast” by Nell Tiger Free.

Nell Tiger Free, the new Myrcella

the mountain was also replaced, i mean, “recast,” from the first season; speaking of… is ‘the Mountain,’ Sir Gregor, going to become a zombie, with “illegal Measter practices,” like Lady StoneHeart (“Zombie Catelyn,” former Catelyn Stark), from the books? i did enjoy it a little that ‘the Mountain’ at least died, after killing Oberyn. i believe they left out Lady Stoneheart from the hbo tv series, as it would have been a little confusing to have Beric Dondarrion, using the magic of the Lord Of Light, revive Catelyn Stark in zombie form only to terrorize the country side, like Frankenstein’s Monster. zombies in the north and also in the south, mmmm. still want to see Lady Stoneheart tho, buck up fans, it’ll be cool. we want Catelyn Stark vengance!

Lady Loki cosplay at SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2014

Lady Loki: sometimes cosplay is just amazing, thank you Asgardian. ok, i know you’re really a frost giant, Lady Loki, but still step-brother to Thor. maybe Marvel will add a Lady Loki to accompany the new Lady Thor in the comic series, coming out in 2 months.

Lady Loki at SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2014 with a glowing Tesseract, amazing.
