As Clark Spencer mentioned, there is so much to experience, learn, and appreciate with Encanto. The animated film tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a magical house. Every member of the family is given a magical gift, except Mirabel. When she learns the magic surrounding the family home is in danger, the only ordinary Madrigal just might be the extraordinary family’s last hope.
Theme parks are open once again and while things are mostly back to normal, there is still a lot of uncertainty when comes to the delta variant of the coronavirus. This has led different states, different counties, and even different cities, to take very different approaches to places like restaurants, stadiums, and theme parks. What sort of rules are in place is very dependent on where you are. And right now, being in Los Angeles County means seeing some brand new rules that means that Universal Studios Hollywood is about to become the biggest theme park in the nation to require proof of vaccination to enter.
For a series that was making a name for itself in terms of high-flying adventure, exaggerated gadgets and pithy one-liners, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service represented a huge swing for the James Bond franchise. The gadgets were scaled back and even the evil scheme of Ernst Stavro Blofeld (played this time by Telly Savalas) was pretty simplified. The greatest difference, however, was the fact that for the first time in 007 history, James Bond actually fell in love and got married.
Ridley Scott has directed more than a few cinematic treasures over the course of his illustrious career. From Alien and Thelma and Louise to American Gangster and The Martian, he’s produced work that’s sure to stand the test of time. Of course, one film that he receives a particular amount of praise for is his 2000 historical epic, Gladiator. Fans have long been hoping for a sequel to the Oscar-winning film though, over the years, the project has reportedly experienced its share of starts and stops. But Scott has now indicated that the film is indeed moving forward, and production could be starting sooner than you’d think.
With Agent Stone’s return, it might lead to fans guessing about Dr. Robotnik’s fate within Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Of course, the last time viewers saw Robotnik, he found himself wandering around Sonic’s homeworld, plotting his revenge. It will be nice to see how Stone and Robotnik’s relationship develops once the Sonic sequel arrives in theaters. Hopefully, Lee Majdoub will have a bigger role in the follow-up compared to the first film.
Without getting too deep into the backstory of Cletus Kasady, there are some tragedies in his past that certainly have turned him into the brutal serial killer that he is in Venom and its sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage. So when he’s paired with a symbiote, like the one that bonds with Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), it brings out the darkest aspects of his soul, the ones that have been soiled by misfortune. The movie doesn’t dig nearly as deep as Natural Born Killers does… and doesn’t have an axe to grind with the media. But it’s impossible to see Woody Harrelson playing a killer and not think of Stone’s vicious satire.
Andy Serkis’ comments to io9 come from an interview about his long and successful career ahead of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. He was also asked about his tenure in the galaxy far, far away, one that ended with Snoke being surprisingly cut in half in The Last Jedi. And it seems that he’s now at peace with the way the trilogy story ultimately shook out.
Star Wars fans can re-watch Andy Serkis’ time as Supreme Leader Snoke over on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.

The Last Man On Earth (Hulu)
Created by Will Forte, this Fox original series, titled The Last Man on Earth, follows Phil Miller, a man who seems to be the only human survivor after a deadly virus had swept the planet. When he thinks that all hope is lost and that he will find no one else, he sees smoke in the distance – a sign of life.
Jason Sudeikis plays Mike Miller as a recurring character in The Last Man on Earth, Phil’s brother in the show, and he’s wonderful in his role. Besides him, The Last Man on Earth cast is filled with plenty of talent, and a lot of laughs. I think what I love the most about it, as someone who enjoys post-apocalyptic shows like The Walking Dead, is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Yes, the world has ended, but these people are making the best of it and they’re laughing their way through it – and so are we.
Some are suggesting that this is simply an alternate take, that put the actors in different places, so this could still be Hulk, but that doesn’t necessarily work either. This character clearly isn’t holding his right arm in a sling, as Hulk would have been. Having said that, there’s no other obvious CGI character in the crowd that could be Hulk, so maybe it is.
