Throwback Thursday: Pixar’s Up

Pixar's Up

When Up was first announced, I was one of the many folks who thought this would be Pixar’s first flop. Boy were we wrong about that. It’s a charming tale throughout, where the adventure isn’t just one of geography. Since Up is a movie about life, love, humanity and adventure, you will cry, laugh and scream.

The Huangs are up to their usual antics again this week. And just wait til you see what Louis ordered when he finally pries open that humongous crate! Who does that? No spoilers here, but you should know that Nicole actually pulls a GUN on Eddie, and he screams to the high heavens. Plus, you’ll hear for the very first time someone exclaim “JUDAS PRIEST!” in response to being startled.

Flash Boys Draft Picks – #TheSorkinChallenge

In my article for FictionDiversity, I wrote that a movie adaptation of Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt would be like “Jerry Maguire meets Erin Brockovich” But after re-reading the character breakdown from my October 2014 article, I’ve come to realize that Flash Boys, with its ragtag crew of unlikely Wall Street disruptors, is more akin to Jerry Maguire meets Ocean’s Eleven.

Because the Hollywood establishment lacks imagination when it comes to casting, this is my attempt at assisting where they fall short. Just like Evan at CultureWarReporters, I’m not too knowledgeable about actors myself. But unlike Aaron Sorkin, I don’t shy away from “research intensive” work. Here’s my list of who I think should be cast in the Flash Boys movie…

Kimmy is torn between two guys and trying not to act like a fool. Titus finds a different kind of acting coach.

This is the episode to which Em Liu was referring in her review on FictionDiversity.com when she mentioned “The Redemption of the Dong.”

“The greatest, of course, is the trope-smashing arc I’m calling The Redemption of the Dong, featuring [Dong Nguyen,] Kimmy’s GED classmate…” Dong Nguyen is played by Ki Hong Lee.

Watch Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 13 “Forget”

Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 13 “Forget”
As Rick and the others continue to acclimate to their new surroundings, they consider a return to normalcy.

This episode felt more like one of those set-up episodes, at least I hope so. The suspense seemed to be centered around whether or not (or how) each of our survivors was going to settle in and exhale a bit. We get glimpses of it from some of them, while others have a hard time letting down their guard, and for good reason. After all that they’ve been through and all the times their trust has been broken, maybe they shouldn’t ever let their guard down. In short, much of the suspense was internal.

Though we do actually find out why Daryl hadn’t yet been offered a job. But we won’t spoil you here. You’ll have to watch to find out why…

Watch it (again, or for the first time) on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Xbox Video, or Xfinity/Comcast:
