Chris Pratt pushes play on “Awesome Mix Vol. 2″ as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′ rehearsals begin
Listen, I know this really isn’t reporting much. But I’m pumped, nay!, jacked, nay!, jacked+pumped for the sequel to my favorite film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So I’m going to happily consume any flimsy pseudo-news wrapped in the franchise’s spectral form that comes my way.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. This ain’t Monday Morning Commute. It’s Tuesday Morning Commute, and I’m barely goddamn sorry! Nothing like hitting the workweek hard to remind you of your own entropic plummet towards oblivion. Days like yesterday remind me of one of my favorite passages from Palahniuk’s Survivor, “Time is running out. There isn’t the kind of energy you used to have. You start to slow down. You start to give in” (263). Maybe five years ago, I have a busy day of work, I come home. Churn out thirteen articles for the next two days, jack off three times, eat dinner, jack off three more times, and play seven hours of Mass Effect.
These days? I come home, kiss my wife on the head, throw my backpack to the ground, put on sweatpants, and watch Jeopardy.
Last year at their presser, Bethesda dropped Fallout 4. This game has gone on to amass hundreds upon hundreds of hours in my PS4. So while I don’t anticipate a reveal of *that* magnitude on a personal level, I’m stoked to see what they bring to their presser this year.
Ruffalo: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ will combine to feel like ‘Hulk’ standalone movie
Yeah, I don’t know. Mark Ruffalo has a, uh, curious way of describing his character’s presence in Thor 3, and Avengers 3 and 4. The Actor Who Hulks states that in lieu of a Hulk standalone movie thanks to Marvel Studios+Universal Film People Stuff beef, the character’s arc in his next three movies will combine to feel like a standalone movie. Which sort of makes sense? Like — I imagine if you combine the arcs of any of the characters across three or more movies, you have a significant amount of character development.
