Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren team up for TV show that could go to Netflix/Apple, Dolph will star in the show but Sly will not…

Deadline reported that Sly Stallone and Dolph Lundgren will team up for an upcoming action drama show that could go to Netlfix and Apple. Not confirmed yet but Netflix and Apple badly wants the show.

Dolph will star in the leading role but Sly will not star at all. Sly is just going to serve as executive producer and he might even direct the show himself. The show was pitched to FOX, CBS, Netflix and Apple and it looks like they all want it.

Dolph will play a covert operative at the Department of Safety and Security at the UN. He is like a secret agent, a one man S.W.A.T. team and hostage negotiator. The show doesn’t have a title as of this moment.

I’m hoping this show goes to Netflix ’cause it sounds awesome. I’m sure it’s gonna be a pretty violent show too. There will be tons of fist fighting, gun shooting and lots of explosions I’m sure.

It may not seem like it but Dolph has a lot of action movie experience. Dolph did mostly action movies in his career, anyways. Most of his movies were straight to video action films so I know Dolph plays the tough guy role very well.

I find it interesting how Sly wants to experiment with TV now. Sly wants to make the Rocky prequel TV show so that will probably come soon. Maybe this is paving the way for that?

I think Dolph is a good actor so I’m definitely gonna to be looking forward to this one. Man, I hope this show goes to Netflix exclusive and there’s a pretty good chance it will.

“Stranger Things” is the best original show on Netflix… I’ll be watching it until it ends for good…

So last night I finished “Stranger Things 3”. Even though it was kind of a short season this year, I was still blown away and impressed by it. This show is a well-written show and very well-acted by the entire cast too. Oh my god, the show is so fucking good. It’s also directed and filmed pretty well too.

Part of the reason I love this show so much is that I love how this show blends science fiction and horror together. The stories of those creatures and those kids is way cool. Some of you may ask me, who are my favorite characters of the show? Well Eleven, of course, who is played by the great young actress Millie Bobby Brown. That character is so badass and so entertaining as hell. I also like Winona Ryder’s character who plays Joyce and she is the mother of characters Will and Jonathan. I also like Dustin and Billy Hargrove.

Another reason I like this show so much is like everyone else, it reminds me of so much like the late 80’s and early 90’s which the show is taken place at during those years. That was back in the days when there was no internet, no cell phones, back when shopping malls were a thing, we had to use pay phones, no such thing as flat screen TVs back then and those were the days when kids actually had to go outside and do things. I know this ’cause I lived my childhood through those years too.

Anyhow, “Stranger Things 3” was a really mind blowing season. It was great all the way through. Excellent storytelling, I can see why it’s the most popular show on Netflix and I’m finally getting into the show so now I’m all caught up.

Now I’m all caught up with “Stranger Things”, I’m going to have to pick a different show to watch on there. I’m thinking of starting “Designated Survivor” with Kiefer Sutherland ’cause I’m hearing great things about that show and I’m probably gonna start it next week.

I’m back on Netflix ’cause I wanted to be back in time before “The Dark Crystal” show gets on there ’cause I love the Dark Crystal and can’t wait for that show too. I also went back on Netflix for other shows that I wanted to watch on there too.

I don’t think “Game of Thrones” is over for good… it could get turned into a film series… don’t worry fans…

I didn’t watch the final season of Game of Thrones since I don’t have HBO. I wish I could watch it on TV like everyone else but since I can’t afford HBO, I just buy all the seasons on DVD/BluRay. I do have all 7 seasons on DVD/BluRay. I have the first 6 seasons on DVD and season 7 on BluRay but I will get the final season which is Season 8 on BluRay when it comes out for sure.

Anyhow, I’m not upset that the show “Game of Thrones” has ended on TV. That’s on TV but for the big screen? Over the years there have always been talks of a big screen “Game of Thrones” movie so don’t rule that out yet, folks. Sure, George R.R. Martin didn’t finish the sixth book “The Winds of Winter” yet so HBO didn’t make it in time to adapt “The Winds of Winter” book into the show. I’m thinking though that “The Winds of Winter” which is book six could get made into a big screen movie for Hollywood.

Over thee years, there were other hit TV shows that got made into big screen movies especially shows like “Star Trek”, “Sex In the City”, “Mission Impossible”, “The Addams Family”, “The A-Team”, “The Dukes of Hazzard”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “The Muppets”, “The X-Files” and the list goes on.

Could the same happen for “Game of Thrones”??? Yes, absolutely. I haven’t seen the final episode of “GOT” yet but I’m sure the ending left open for more in the future. The “Game of Thrones” movie may not happen right away ’cause I hear the writers for “Game of Thrones” will be writing their Star Wars trilogy next so a “Game of Thrones” movie may take a while. I can see the cast and crew of “Game of Thrones” reuniting for a big screen movie years from now. We’ll have to wait until George finishes book 6 and then maybe they’ll make it into a movie. That’s probably what’s gonna happen.

I do love “Game of Thrones”, though. Always did. I’ve been with them since the beginning and still a loyal fan now. I didn’t watch the final season yet so I will wait for the BluRay release which could come out later this year hopefully.

Finished watching “Black Mirror” on Netflix over the weekend… most of it was real good but I didn’t love every episode, though…

I know I’m late getting into the show but I finally watched “Black Mirror” on Netflix. Finished watching it over the weekend. Since everybody’s been talking about the show, I thought I would finally get into it to see what the fuss is all about. “Black Mirror” is a UK science fiction TV show exclusively for Netflix. You don’t have to watch every episode in order ’cause each episode has its own story kind of like “The Twilight Zone” or “Amazing Stories” a little bit.

From what I saw, this show isn’t just a science fiction show. This show included every genre out there: drama, mystery, suspense, horror, thriller, romance, etc. Every genre is pretty much in there.

Throughout the show while there are no big name stars in the cast there were a few big names that made special guest appearances. The biggest names I’ve seen who appeared in the show were: Jesse Plemons, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jon Hamm and Daniel Kaluuya (the star of the “Get Out” movie).

Even though the show is very popular and a lot of people loved it; however, I didn’t love every episode. There were some I thought were pretty good and okay but there were also some that were my absolute favorite. Here’s a list of bad and good episodes of the show:

Episodes that I hated: “Nosedive”, “San Junipero” and “The National Anthem”

Episodes that were my absolute favorite: “Metaldhead”, “Arkangel, “Crocodile”, “Black Museum”, “Playtest”, “White Christmas” (the one that Jon Hamm appeared in) and “Men Against Fire”.

Even though I didn’t like three episodes, I thought it was a great show for the most part. I’m gonna check out the “Bandersnatch” movie later this week.

I’m glad to finally get around to watching “Black Mirror”. I think next I’m gonna start watching “Stranger Things” ’cause I’ve never seen that show before either.

Yes, I ended up watching the Oscars last night and it was pretty decent… pretty good show actually!!!!

I’ve stayed away from watching the Oscar awards for the past several years. Why? Simply because they’ve gone too political lately. I’ve been boycotting the Oscars for a long while and decided to watch last night.  I was a little worried that the Oscars would go political again this year. They did go “political” but not as bad as in the past. Spike Lee talked trash about Trump even though he didn’t bring up Trump’s name but the Trump bashing wasn’t that bad last night. It was a pretty calm show for the most part.

I was surprised the Oscars opened the show with Queen performing. That was actually great. I’m a huge fan of Queen but not a huge fan of Adam Lambert fronting them, though. Don’t like Adam’s singing but Queen performed good.

I wanted to watch the Oscars last night ’cause I wanted to see if “Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse” was going to win Best Animated Picture (which it did) and wanted to see if “Green Book” wins Best Picture (and it did). I’m glad Mahershala Ali won for his role in “Green Book” too. I’m also happy for Remi Malek for winning for “Bohemian Rhapsody” as I also loved that film. The winners went to the right people and I was happy how the results turned out to be.

As for the live performances go, I loved Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga performing together. I thought that was really great and I do love the song “Shallow”. I have the “Star Is Born” soundtrack on my Ipod. It’s a great soundtrack.

The Oscars proved last night that they don’t need a host to run a show. While it wasn’t a bad show last night, the fashion on the celebrities seem to be getting worse each year, though.

I haven’t watched the Oscars in a long while and it was interesting to see how the Oscars are now.

I’m just happy that “Green Book” won BEST PICTURE and glad “Black Panther” didn’t get it. That’s the best thing that happened at the Oscars last night. “Green Book” really was a great film and it is Best Picture worthy. I saw that film in theater and loved it. Plan on getting the film on Blu Ray soon ’cause it comes out on Blu Ray next week on March 5th. I’m definitely picking up a copy.

I thought the Oscars was pretty good last night and they’re slowly getting better. Glad I watched.

I’m happy that “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” both won big at the Golden Globes… both are really good films!!!

While I despise award shows and don’t watch ’em anymore, I was actually happy with the winners this year at the Golden Globes. I’m glad “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” got the most attention at the Globes last night. I saw both of these movies in the theater and LOVED both of them. Both were really good so all the awards these two movies won were well deserved.

Now on with the Oscars… will “Bohemian Rhapsody and “Green Book” get the most nominations? Probably. It’ll be interesting to see which film at the Oscars this year will win Best Picture. I haven’t watch the Oscars in the last several years… haven’t watched the Oscars in a long time but I’m actually thinking about watching this year. Why? I want to see which of these two movies will get the Best Picture win. It’s tough to predict which film will get the Best Picture win ’cause both of these movies are really good. Yeah, I loved the “Green Book” movie as I thought that film was fantastic.

You should see both of these films too when they come out on BluRay/DVD.

I’m now officially back in Netflix but I am back permanently…

So last night I officially signed back up to Netflix. Back in the early Spring of 2018, I cancelled my account ’cause Netflix has decided to go political by making a deal to do projects with Michelle and Barack Obama and then hiring Susan Rice as Board of Directors. Yeah, I took a pretty long hiatus from Netflix which was pretty nice. I don’t regret it at all ’cause Netflix was getting a bit addicting to me anyways. I’ve been away from Netflix for like 10 or 11 months so I’m back for good.

Yeah, Barack Obama has got some projects coming on Netflix but I don’t have to watch ’em and I won’t.

The reason I went back to Netflix is that like my Instagram post says, it’s ’cause of “Punisher – Season 2”. I won’t be able to watch it anywhere else. I also went back in to start watching “Black Mirror” and watch the rest of “Gotham”. I’m also planning to watch the “Bird Box” movie on there this weekend ’cause it looks good. I’m also thinking about watching the rest of “The Walking Dead” and catch up with that. I stopped watching “The Walking Dead” after Season 3 but I’m thinking of getting back into that show too.

Yeah, Netflix leans toward the left when it comes to politics but I’ll use Netflix to watch stuff that I like and watch stuff that I’m interested in. I don’t have to watch stuff by the Obamas and I won’t.

There are plenty of stuff I want to watch on Netflix and I’m already finding plenty of good stuff. Yeah Netflix has gone political but you can ignore their politics and just enjoy the entertainment that is on there. Try it sometime.
