The Rise Of Cinematic Universes

I'm sure it is only a matter of time...
I’m sure it is only a matter of time…

Recently, it was announced that a new Scooby Doo movie would launch a Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe.  We also know that the Men in Black/21 Jump Street movie is supposed to actually happen.

Basically, that means that anything can be a cinematic universe these days.  While sitting around the Gabbing Geek Editorial Office, I came up with a few of my own.  See them after the cut.  Hollywood, feel free to use these for a small piece of the gross.  Not the net.  I won’t be screwed over that way.

Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition- Watson’s Rebuttal

goldcoinsI’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers.  His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak.  He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter.  In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil.  So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number.  We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions.  NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!

Cosplay Attempt, Take Three

For what is acting is not professional cosplay?
For what is acting if not professional cosplay?

You know something?  I’ve been trying to bring back the daily cosplay feature, and I am just not good at this.  I don’t know how Jenny does it.  I know exactly how Watson does it, because he probably just types “stuff I would wear” into Google and the results just come up.

Well, this is the last time I am trying this.  So, one last shot at a good cosplay…

mrholmes

Sherlock Holmes, the character, has been around for over a century, and plenty of fans have an idea of what Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous creation should be like.

That’s what makes director Bill Condon’s take on the character so refreshing:  Mr. Holmes actually treats the famous detective as a human being.  SPOILER-FREE review after the cut.
