Tetsuya Nomura says ‘Final Fantasy 7’ remake progress is progressing well. But like, what’s his fucking basis for comparison?
When Tetsuya Nomura says that the Final Fantasy 7 remake is progressing well, I gotta fucking ask. Compared to what? Broken-ass Final Fantasy XV that came out half-cooked after a fucking decade? Kingdom Hearts III, which has been in development since 1992? Or like, you know, compared to a game being made by a fucking functioning development studio? I’m going to go ahead and say compared to the fucking former at this point.
This shit makes me think of that famous William Gibson quote, “the future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.” I mean, this is something straight out of one of his fucking novels. I love it. A 70 year-old fucking Tapiei fengshui master who cruises for Pokemon on a tricked-out bicycle.
‘Top Gun 2’ brings in Christopher McQuarrie for script rewrites. This means it’s going to be fucking awesome, folks
Christopher McQuarrie fucking owns, my dudes. Not only did he direct two of the best action movies in recent memory (that would be the last two Mission: Impossible movies), but he also made Jack Reacher fun. So, the fact that Tom Cruise has brought in the dude for Top Gun 2 rewrites? The movie is in good, good hands.
Listen. It’s not the Shane Black written-and-directed buddy comedy I had envisioned. But, this is awesome. A Winter Soldier and Falcon TV series? Goddamn, yes. Their banter and camaraderie has been fantastic so far, and man. Their mutual mourning over Rogers’ forthcoming demise will be incredible and heartbreaking. I’m, I’m marking out, and I don’t fucking care.
Michael B. Jordan dropped this poster for Creed 2. A movie that I’m really excited for, despite my best attempts to not be.
Man, Red Dead Redemption 2 just had the biggest weekend ever. For anything. Granted, a game costs way more than a movie ticket. But, this is still fucking incredible. That said? It didn’t knock off the biggest opening ever. That title belongs to its brother, Grand Theft Auto V.
I know this isn’t really news. But, Avengers 4 speculation is one of the few pop culture things that gets my juices going full-throttle. So, I’m just going to post this! And you’re going to gorge yourself on it!
Star Trek is a hip franchise, dudes! Totally, totally hip! How hip, you want to ask? Why, it’s got the head writer of Rick and Morty working on an animated series! Snark aside, this is actually really cool.
Chris Pratt in talks to join next movie from ‘Sicario’ and ‘Hell or High Water’ writer Taylor Sheridan
Taylor Sheridan’s movies are consistently fucking enjoyable. I mean, they oscillate between absolute fucking classic (Sicario, which he wrote) and enjoyably miserable affair (Wind River which he wrote and directed). So, throw some fucking Chris Pratt into mix? Hell yes.
