For everyone who knows me, I obviously stan for Zack Snyder. I adore the cinematography in his films, but I do understand that his work is divisive. And that’s part of the reason why I enjoy his work so much. He doesn’t keep things safe or stay in his comfort zone. The guy likes exploring and experimenting. And it always sparks emotion and conversation. And to me, that is art.
Supernatural is approaching its actual swan song with the series finale not far away — well, sort of. It isn’t actually filmed yet because of obvious reasons. But filming is recently underway to finish off the finale seasons. After that, God’s favorite brothers are finally reaching the end of their road.
The author behind the novel The Martian, Andy Weir, is currently writing an unnamed novel that takes place in space. It isn’t complete, but that isn’t stopping Ryan Gosling from wanting to star in the film adaptation of the upcoming book. If that isn’t enough, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the duo behind The LEGO Movie and 21 (22) Jump Street films, are set to direct the unnamed film.
Marvel is allegedly going to try to bring Ghost Rider to life for the third time. The first was two films starring Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze, who becomes Ghost Rider. The second was actor Gabriel Luna as the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider on Agents of SHIELD. And really, both actors were good as both version of Ghost Rider.
The Mandalorian was a huge hit for Disney Plus, and someone who stole the show — besides Baby Yoda — was Taika Waititi voicing the quirky droid, IG-11. Oh yeah, he also directed a really good episode on the series too, Chapter 8: Redemption. Then, there’s also the fact that he directed the fantastic Thor: Ragnarok.
Admittedly, I haven’t really seen actor Tim Blake Nelson’s work before until recently with HBO’s Watchmen. He quickly captivated me with his character, Looking Glass; a brilliant, yet damaged and paranoid detective. I was a fan of the graphic novel, and even with Looking Glass being an entirely new character, he fast became my favorite part of the show.
