Ladies and gentlemen thank you for excusing us during a brief vacation period. We understand how trying it can be to go without our witty brand of entertainment reporting. But the wait is over. We’re back with a vengeance, like Bruce and Samuel L. Jackson. Though we wont be hunting down a crazed Jeremy Irons, we’re still imparting important information. So listen up.
Since our departure (again terribly sorry about your withdrawals) there have been several occurrences worthy of our mention. Also articles discussing them will follow.
- Ray Donovan: A professional tough-guy and problem solver, masterfully played by Liev Schreiber, he can solve anyone’s problems but his own. There have been three episodes thus far that have given shape and personality to Ray’s world. Now that the viewers are looking for real estate in Ray Donovan’s neighborhood, this show will take off. With an excellent cast and rich plot this new series for ShowTime will give HBO a run for their money.
- Grown Ups 2: The first ever sequel to an Adam Sandler picture has some hoping this will be the last. As a fan of the first installment I will admit to being interested in seeing if they can pull off another. The noticeable absence of Rob Schneider and many other reasons causes this film to have a much different feel than the first.
- The Newsroom: This Aaron Sorkin masterpiece is returning to the airwaves in a big bad way. Jeff Daniels’ portrayal of the grouchy but big-hearted Will McAvoy makes me think he missed his calling as a news anchor (just not for FOX). Olivia Munn is back (I just felt that needed mentioning). The whole cast is returning, which should mean we can expect the same level of excellence as year one.
- Pacific Rim: The latest flick from Guillermo del Toro it promises to be just a bizarre as his previous ventures. This film revolves around a war between man and strikingly large sea creatures. It may just be me but is anyone else getting a Godzilla feeling here? Who’s to say? Wait…I am. There is too much to discuss for this intro so await a surprisingly detailed article. (Update: Pacific Rim did not do as well as it wanted to in the American box office. It’ll be interesting to see if it can make its money back).
- Despicable Me 2: Now for the kiddies (and us). This film is proving to be a juggernaut at the box office. Headed again by Steve Carell, this movie is worth the price of admission, but I say no more. Chris Sax is the undisputed Despicable Me professional and I leave the reviews to him.
Thank you again for being patient, but as of today we are back in business. We welcome all of you back and say get ready to tune in and Stay Glued 2 the Screen.
