“Indiana Jones 5” may be the final movie that Harrison Ford and John Williams will both do… understandably so, though…

John Williams just said that he’s done scoring music for films. Once he’s finished the music for “Indiana Jones 5”, that’s it. He’s done. He said that Harrison Ford is also retiring and calling it quits after Indy 5. Nothing is really official as of this point but both of these guys are already talking about calling it quits.

It’s understandable so ’cause both men are getting old and getting tired. John’s been scoring for films since the 50’s. He’s scored films for so many iconic movies and did a lot of films with Steven Spielberg especially. John is definitely the master and the king of film scoring. What I love about John’s composing style is that he’s able to make scores that sticks to your head. His scores are so catchy and memorable likes “Jaws”, “Superman”, “ET”, “Star Wars”… his scores are so memorable that you can even sing along to them.

As far as Harrison retirement goes… not only that he’s aging… I think I remember Harrison suffering two injuries on two different films. He broke his leg filming “Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens” and then he injured his shoulder on “Indy 5”. After having those major injuries, that must be when he said, “I can’t do this anymore, after Indy 5, I’m done”. I don’t think Harrison can do his own stunts anymore in action sequences.

Harrison had a great career run, though as I’ve always been a massive fan of his.

I think Indy 5 would be a perfect last movie for them to go out with. Go out on a high note, ya know?

Harrison was able to bring back all of his iconic characters to the big screen for one last time. He brought back Han Solo, Rick Deckard “Blade Runner: 2049” and now Indy for one final film. Harrison is a talented actor. Always has been. I’ve watched his films throughout the years of my life and he’s done every genre pretty much.

Well deserved retirement for both men. I’m all for it. Can’t wait for “Indy 5” and I’m sure we’ll get our first teaser trailer this summer and a title reveal too.

Having Margot Robbie play Harley Quinn in “Joker 2” musical movie wouldn’t make sense anyways, I love the idea of Lady Gaga playing that character instead, though…

Well, not only that “Joker 2” is now moving forward with Todd Phillips returning to direct and Joaquin Phoenix returning to star, it’s been announced that Lady Gaga… the mega pop star may be playing Harley Quinn. Ya know, Harley Quinn, the popular Batman villain who plays Joker’s lover and sidekick. Not only that Lady Gaga is allegedly in talks to star as Harley Quinn, Joker 2 script is written as a movie musical.

When that news was announced, Batman fans in social media seems to be pretty outraged by that… Lady Gaga possibly starring and Joker turning into a musical… they don’t seem to like that idea. I’m seeing a lot of Batman fans crying about Margot Robbie not getting the Harley Quinn role for “Joker 2”.

Well like the title of this post says, it wouldn’t make sense to have Margot Robbie play Harley Quinn in the Joker sequel anyway given that both “Joker” and “Suicide Squad” times are different. Margot’s Harley in “Suicide Squad” was taken place in our current time and Phoenix’s “Joker” was taken place in the early 80’s. Doing a little reading Margot’s Harley was 26 years old in the Suicide Squad movies so that means in the early 1980’s, Margot’s version of Harley in “Suicide Squad” wasn’t even born yet so she’s out. It wouldn’t make sense to have Margot play Harley in “Joker 2” given the differences of time.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Margot Robbie as Harley myself but it’s time to give someone else a chance to play that character. I think Lady Gaga would be great. Her playing the role would raise “eyebrows” by some but I think Gaga would knock it out of the park and she would do great. I think Gaga would make all Harley fans happy. I think Gaga has what it takes to play this psycho mad girl with all kinds of problems.

I also love the idea of “Joker 2” turning into a musical movie… kind of in the style of “Rocky Horror”, “Cats”, “West Side Story” and “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Will Joaquin Phoenix be singing songs in “Joker 2”? Probably, for sure ’cause remember, Joaquin is a singer himself. He did that Johnny Cash movie, “Walk the Line”, remember that.

Even though Joker 2 is changing directions a little bit, Joker will still be the murderous madman and psycho. Plot for “Joker 2” is unknown as of this time but I think the story of Joker becoming the murderer will go even further and possibly start a gang like in the comics. I doubt Batman will be re-introduced again in this series but I’m sure the Bruce Wayne story will continue.

People may be complaining early but “trust”. I think “Joker 2” will be even better and bigger than the first. I think people will come around once “first look” photos and “trailers” start coming out. Glad it’s officially happening, though.

I now have every Batman live action movie ever made on BluRay…

Yup, I’m that big of a Batman fan, y’all. My Batman collection is bigger than this though. I have more Batman animated movies, graphic novels and some Batman comics.

I’m planning to re-watch “The Batman” again but on BluRay. Was gonna re-watch it on HBO Max but I ended up getting the film on BluRay instead so I can complete my Batman movie collection.

I got the two Keaton movies and the two Schumacher films in one set. Planning to re-watch those at some point too.

I love Batman. Just love the character and the stories.

Just watched “The Northman” movie last night on Peacock, badass movie… definitely one of the best movies of this year…

Well I wanted to see “The Northman” in theater but never got around to it so now that I learned that the movie is streaming on Peacock this weekend, I decided to watch it on there.

It’s a badass movie, though. I love Viking stories so I had to watch this one. This movie is definitely recommended as stated above in my Instagram review.

Nicole Kidman has always been one of my favorite actresses and she still got it. This is one of her best roles too. It’s a Viking movie with an all star cast and they all did a great job. Amleth (played by Alexander Skarsgard) is a badass character. I loved Bjork’s appearance even though she had a small role.

I was blown away with the cinematography and camera work, though. Very impressive. Robert Eggers is definitely one of the best directors for sure and he’s a young guy too. He’s just 38 years old.

If you want to watch “The Northman” it’s streaming completely FREE on Peacock, don’t have to pay for it at all. Just download the app and you’re good to go. It’s recommended checking out.

So far “The Northman” and “The Batman” are the two best movies this year. I haven’t “Top Gun: Maverick” yet but gonna get around to that one hopefully soon.

“The Northman” is a badass flick. Check it out.

Now that Johnny Depp is victorious in trial, he’ll probably eye a comeback to Hollywood… whenever he’s ready that is…

Now that Johnny is all finished with the trial, he’s probably gonna go back to making movies again. Once again, will Johnny return to “Pirates 6”? It’s pretty unlikely but ya never know ’cause Jerry Bruckheimer just said not too long that’s Depp’s future with the franchise is undecided as of this point. They could bring him back or not but I think Johnny himself wants to move on from that franchise… ya never know though, he could change his mind and do Pirates for one last time. We’ll have to wait on that too.

I think Johnny will continue to work on movies with other major studios, probably and maybe do some independent films. I’m sure scripts will be coming at him like crazy now. The last movie Johnny did was “Minamata” back in 2020? He hasn’t done a new movie in a long while.

I’m sure he’ll find a new movie to do, though. Whatever movie he decides to do, though I predict will be a box office smash simply ’cause Johnny’s fan base is so huge. Johnny’s fan base was always pretty huge over the years due to getting all that popularity with “21 Jump Street” show, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and all those movies he did with Tim Burton. It’s just that his fan base gotten even bigger during the trial.

Speaking of Tim Burton, though, it be cool if Johnny re-teams with him for another movie. That can happen too maybe, we’ll see about that one.

RIP Ray Liotta… another good one gone…

1954 – 2022

This one is another bummer. Like most, I’m a huge fan of the “Goodfellas” gangster movie but Ray Liotta has been in many other good movies besides that one. Ray is another versatile actor who has done it all pretty much. He can play just about anything that throws at him and he’s done every genre and played every type of character you could think of. He’s done violent action movies, horror films, thrillers, comedies, serious dramas, family films, animated films for kids, etc. He has played everything from loving characters to villains you really want to hate. He also done movies with every big name actor you could think of including Sly Stallone, Robert Deniro, John Travolta, Tim Allen, Kevin Costner, Al Pacino, etc.

He definitely accomplished a lot in the film business and before he passed on, he was in the middle of making a movie from what I read so he died what he loved doing. He never believed in retirement. Kept acting in film until he could no longer do it anymore.

I’ve never seen “The Many Saints of Newark” the Sopranos prequel that he’s in but I’m meaning to get to it real soon.

He definitely always had my respect and definitely was one of the few good Hollywood stars left.

RIP Ray and thanks for the good films over the years! Now I’ll probably re-watch “Goodfellas” on BluRay this weekend.

Today’s Amber Heard testimony was comedy gold. Wow. It was funnier than SNL, Camille was on fire, though!

Yeah, I watched the trial this morning. Depp vs. Heard.

The first witness that came up was Dr. Dawn Hughes, that wacky Heard psychologist. She came back today, I don’t understand all that psychology or “shrink” stuff that well but I can understand that all Dr. Hughes was doing was going against everything that Dr. Curry said about Amber’s problems with PTSD and bipolar disorder and all that. It was a funny watch, though… Depp’s lawyer, Wayne Dennison destroyed her pretty good and Dr. Hughes was getting pissed off.

Then when Dr. Hughes finished, Amber heard took the stand and WOW!!!!! It was even better than the last one. Yeah, Amber was doing the usual “Johnny did this” and “Johnny said that” and blah blah blah but one thing that Amber said that I actually agree with is that Johnny is a powerful man and even she admitted that. I’m not sure if that was a slip or what but it was funny.

And Camille… damn, she killed it today. You wanna see a female verbal catfight, you gotta watch that above. Amber and Camille got into a bit of a yelling match, it was pretty heated.

Camille called her out on Morgan Night’s trailer damage, Amber sending stuff to TMZ and the Kate Moss stairs incident.

Of course, Amber plays innocent victim at all of them. Calling everybody a liar and blah blah blah, you get the deal. She calls Morgan Night a liar and accused him of doing this ’cause Depp is a powerful man and all that but Night made it clear that he’s no Depp fan so why would he lie about that stuff?

Oh, when it comes to Amber and her side, everyone that is against them is wrong and lying? Everybody on Amber’s side is a bit biased and they’ll kiss her ass no matter what anyone says ’cause that’s what Amber paid them to do. All of Amber’s people got destroyed and exposed for their lies pretty good anyways.

Amber was going on and on about how all this evidence she got that proves Johnny’s abuse but there’s no medical records and she admitted that herself in one of her previous testimonies.

This week was supposed to be the final week but they got more stuff to do tomorrow. Jury deliberations is not ’til Tuesday and the deliberations could go on for a while… maybe even a few days ’cause there’s so much for the jury to discuss… so the verdict reading will be sometime next week. Whenever that may be.

Today was another fun day. Today was better than SNL and all those court room dramas you see on TV.

Johnny’s gonna win, though. No way the jury will side with Amber. Johnny hired great lawyers, they all did a great job. Camille’s my favorite though. I hate lawyers to be honest but I’m a huge fan of Camille. If I ever get in trouble, I’d definitely love to hire her as my lawyer. LMAO!

It’s not a good week for Amber Heard at all, she’s getting destroyed like crazy… fun to watch… I believe she’s done…

I usually don’t watch/listen to live streaming most of the day but today was an exception. I started watching the Depp trial this morning so I can watch the Kate Moss testimony which ended up very short.

Kate Moss dropped the bomb that she didn’t get pushed down the stairs by Johnny as Amber claimed. So now that you heard from Kate Moss herself today, BOOM, it’s done.

Then we have a Depp psychologist Dr. Curry bringing up Amber’s problems of PTSD and Bipolar disorder and Dr. Curry makes it sounds believable.

Then we have an ex-TMZ guy dropping another huge bomb that Amber did sent stuff to TMZ after all which is not a surprise really.

Johnny Depp testified again and he killed it as always. You almost want to feel sorry for the guy when he was explaining how evil Amber is. As Johnny was saying all that stuff, Amber stopped smirking and had a blank stare as Johnny was talking.

Today was addicting ’cause Amber was getting destroyed by everyone all day. I was watching the trial most of the day ’cause it was entertaining as hell seeing all these people exposing Amber and destroying her hard.

Yeah, the verdict reading is Friday and I think the judge is gonna give Johnny the victory. After Kate Moss and the TMZ guy, Amber’s finished… she’s done. The jury will look at those two and have no choice but to side with Johnny.

If the judge ends up siding with Amber instead, then all that will prove is how corrupt and broken the justice system is… so I don’t think Amber will win at all. Johnny’s fine, nothing to worry about.

The trial is not over yet… there’s still tomorrow and Friday. There’s more witnesses to testify tomorrow and I’ll tune in to some of them. If it gets good then I’ll continue watching.

GO JOHNNY GO! He’s got this totally!

Amber Heard’s career is the same as Jason Momoa’s like wtf??? LOL!! Who came up with that???

I decided to try to watch some of the Johnny Depp trial and I caught this guy’s testimony earlier today… Richard Marks, a Hollywood Attorney of the film industry. Here he is shutting down Kathryn Arnold’s claim of Amber Heard’s film career being the same as Jason Momoa. Once again, that came from the Heard lawyer, Kathryn Arnold.

Marks here does a brilliant job of shutting down the comparisons. What’s funny is that Amber’s side is trying to look like that Amber is such a “superstar” in Hollywood when she’s not really. Amber Heard’s character in “Aquaman” Mera was only in the film very little, it wasn’t much of a role and Mera was just a co-star like Marks said here. So to compare Amber Heard’s status as a star to people like Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot and Chris Pine is a freakin joke. No way Amber’s career is in the same league as theirs.

“Game of Thrones” was a breakthrough for Jason…. after that Jason went to do a bunch of big screen movies and did a few other TV shows himself. Jason is a pretty big name in the industry.

What has Amber done besides her small role in “Aquaman”? Amber was in “Zombie Land”, “Magic Mike”, “Drive Angry” and “Machete Kills” but that’s about all really. She hasn’t had much of a career anyway.

It’s funny that Amber’s side wants to accuse Johnny Depp of being jealous of her career but how? Johnny’s done many blockbuster hits, how many blockbusters does Amber have?

Today was golden. Amber wasn’t having a good day at all ’cause people like Richard Marks and other witnesses destroying Amber like crazy. Entertaining as hell really.

Johnny’s gonna win on Friday, I’m confident about that.

Tom Cruise is a big movie buff like the rest of us which is interesting, honestly…

At the Cannes Film Festival during a Q & A session, Tom Cruise says he is a huge movie buff like the rest of us. He says he goes to the theaters to see every new release that comes out. He says he’ll sit in a theater with a full crowd and he’ll show up earlier so he can watch all the trailers. While he does go to the movie theaters on a regular basis, he goes incognito… meaning having one’s identity concealed… he just goes to the theater with a baseball cap on and I’m sure he wears it pulled down so he don’t get recognized. If Tom gets recognized and walks in a movie theater full of people, he could get mobbed by fans, ya know?

Since Tom likes to go to the movies pretty often, you gotta wonder if he went and saw “The Batman”, “Spiderman: No way Home” and even “The Northman” (his ex-wife, Nicole Kidman has a role in that film, btw). I bet he did went and saw all three of those movies. haha….

https://screenrant.com/tom-cruise-movie-theaters-disguise-watch/

Anyway, since Tom likes to talk about being a huge fan of cinema himself, I’m sure he doesn’t watch his own movies though. I’m sure Tom has his own movie theater at his home with surround sound where he watches BluRays, DVDs, VHS’s… even laser discs (remember those)?Just think how huge Tom’s movie library at home it must be? I’m sure he’s got a huge wall full of BluRays/DVDS/VHS for sure, I would think.

Just imagine sitting in a movie theater and Tom Cruise is sitting next to ya watching it and you didn’t even know it was him after all that time?

Since Tom has such a busy schedule with his career and all, how does he find the time to hit the theaters? Well where ever Tom is filming a movie somewhere around the United States, I’m sure he goes to the nearest theater when he’s on a break or a day off. Tom is working on movies constantly himself but I’m sure the director lets him have a break on occasion.
