The Nice Guys is one of my favorite movies of the past five years, maybe of the past decade. I said favorite not best, don’t fucking @ me, okay? So, I’m more than wanting that fucking sequel teased at the end of the first. Will I get it? Who knows. But if it were up to director Shane Black, it would happen.
Shane Black is really making a new Predator movie, eh? Hard to not be excited about it, as the dude has been spitting fire across, what, four decades now?
Shane Black is rebooting Predator, and I can’t be more stoked. ‘Cause, Shane Black. And, the cast! It’s looking dope, and it recently added Keegan-Michael Key.
Benicio Del Toro is awesome. Shane Black is awesome. The Predator is awesome. This movie is trending towards awesome.
Come one, come all.
It’s Hot as Fuck along the Northeastern seaboard of the Empire. Our West Coast comrades seem to be dealing with their own Raging Fires and Non-Moisture. And the Midwest? The Rest of the Earth? I don’t know, but I imagine there are Failings and Fantastic Findings there as well.
Come one, come all.
To the Weekend Open Bar. Soothe your scorched Existence with a cold ale, a back rub that lingers perhaps a bit too long from yours truly, and some good old fashion Shooting of the Shit with fellow kind pop culture kindred. Let’s hang out across the next couple of days, sharing what we’re doing to enjoy Life.
Saw Nice Guys this weekend. Fucking loved it. Fucking love Shane Black. Fucking love The Rock. I’m primed for this.
Monday Morning Commute! On a Monday Evening! Better than a Tuesday Afternoon, not as good as a legitimate Monday Morning! Feelin’ pretty good, man. Classes are finally over, man. Doing a bit of tutoring, but hey. Can’t complain about that. Making money. Still having to drive into Boston during quasi-rush hour, but hey. Can’t complain about that. I’m getting to sleep until 9:00, which is a fucking blessing from the Elder Ones.
I’m down for anything The Rock does. I’m pretty much also down for anything Shane Black does. So I’m there if the two of them want to combine their powers for a Doc Savage adaptation.
So, Predator is still a movie-thing. I had sort of completely forgotten that another installment was in the works. I will almost certainly forget once again by tomorrow.
Looks like Shane Black has found his next landing spot after helming Iron Man 3 last year. The son of a bitch appears set to tackle a Predator reboot. And while I’d generally roll my eyes at the premise, it’s hard to deny Black’s talent.
