Clay Siegall Efforts to Improving Cancer Patients’ Life

Posted by admin on

A post in Clay Siegall’s WordPress Page about the effects of Paris Accord Withdraw, says the withdrawal does not have a big effect on the production of energy in the United States. According to Robert Godby, the director of the Center for Energy Economics and Public Policy at the University of Wyoming, the decision that mattered to people in Wyoming was the one the administration agreed they do not support Clean Power Plan. Natural gas has been a preferred way of energy production because it is cheaper to use as compared to coal. This has led to the need of fewer miners of coal and people are moving out of the state to get employment. However, Robert foresees an increase in jobs in the US as technology continues to advance.

According to a marketing professor at Boston University, Remi Trudel, individuals presented with recycling bags and given presents to wrap tend to use more wrapping papers unlike ones without the bag.

The Next Wolverine to be X-23 Dafne Keen

Posted by admin on

Logan has been one of the most riveting films ever made based on a comic book franchise. As a matter of fact, it has been one of the most emotionally charged and riveting films of the year. It has shown people issues such as consequences for actions. It has also dealt with aging and death. It was a chase movie which has resulted in a lot of innocent people getting killed. However, one of the most stand out aspects of the film is Dafne Keen’s performance as X-23, Logan’s clone daughter. She is going to be the one who takes up the mantle of Wolverine at some point.


Dafne Keen has put in a really good performance of X-23. She has retained a lot of the rage and the ferocity of the older Wolverine. Therefore, audiences have bought her as the animalistic successor to Logan. Logan, the film was filled with a lot of subtle touches that gave it the heart that every other comic book film lacked. At the core of its story is that of family, regret, and the struggle to hold on to what is left while not allowing anything new to come in because of past wounds.


Both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart have portrayed the deeply destroyed and slowly dying in a heartfelt way. The film itself has pulled no punches when it came to the gory details. Among the scenes that have stood out are the scenes showing the effects of the claws and the scenes where Logan is in the hospital with his wounds in view.


Hugh Jackman Reveals Regrets About Wolverine Character

Posted by admin on

Hugh Jackman has turned out to be a great choice for Wolverine, the iconic character of the X-Men franchise. Many fans have considered him to be perfect for the role. Even though there are certain things about him that differed from the comics, they turned out to be rather minimal compared to the role he has played. Even though Hugh Jackman was perfect as Wolverine, he does have some regrets about the role. One thing that he has regretted was not being able to wear the iconic yellow suit in the film. One of the reasons behind this is that the X-Men film franchise began at a time when it was cool to be in all black. Also, the creative team have not figured out how to make the iconic X-Men suits work for the film.


These days, the creative team is more comfortable with showing the film adaption of the comic characters in a form that is more representative of their comics. For instance, Zack Snyder has decided to present characters with a Batman that is in a costume more representative of the comics as opposed to the mechanical black suit.


There is another aspect of Logan that Hugh Jackman regrets was not part of the film franchise. Logan had a birthday where he got to see his brother who would beat him up. There are also a lot of other aspects of the character and other characters that did not make it into the film franchise.


As of right now, Wolverine is likely to be given a rest given Hugh Jackman’s captivating performance of the iconic X-Men character.


Arnold Plans to Return For Another Terminator Film

Posted by admin on

By now, people are probably tired of the Terminator franchise. This is one of these franchises that no matter how much time is put between the installments, it is still lacking with each installment being worse than the last. Gone are the days when there was excitement for the sequel and that it has delivered. This was when James Cameron was directing the films. Both The Terminator and Terminator 2 have been released to great reviews. Terminator 3 was considered an inferior rehash of the first one. Terminator Salvation was actually an attempt to be different and was actually the direction they should have been going. However, the execution left a lot to be desired.


The latest disappointment was Terminator Genisys, which caused a lot of damage to the franchise in a multitude of ways. It has messed with the timeline and has basically took a dump on the story that we know and love. There is more cringe worthy news. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the terminator himself, has announced that he is willing to return for another installment. However, this one is going to be produced by James Cameron, who will retain the rights to the franchise in 2019. Therefore, the creators behind this franchise are working out a production to bring out before the rights revert back to the director of the original.


Fortunately, there is hope that the film might turn out to be decent given that James Cameron is going to be more involved with the project as the producer. James has brought forth ideas on where to go with the project.


Pirates Of The Caribbean Franchise Still Leaning On Depp

Posted by admin on

Johnny Depp may have had his faults in the past few years. Various reports have the veteran actor sinking in debt. Depp has been said to lead an extravagant lifestyle outside of his acting career. Despite those issues, The Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise isn’t about to part ways with Depp. The franchise might have quite the opposite in store over the next decade. Depp could be playing the lead role quite a few more times if the latest film is adored by fans.


Depp has portrayed Jack Sparrow in all five Pirates Of The Caribbean films so far. His latest attempt is in the 2017 Dead Men Tell No Tales version. The new franchise could be moving forward with several new tales if the 2017 version fares well financially.


Producer Jerry Bruckheimer insists the movie franchise won’t move along without Depp anytime soon. According to Digital Spy, Bruckheimer says he just “doesn’t see” Pirates Of The Caribbean without Depp. That makes sense seeing Depp has always provided that extra comedic relief during every movie.


In the latest adventure, Sparrow searches for the Trident of Poseidon. The film returns Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley as Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann as well. Javier Bardem also portrays the villainous Captain Salazar.


Bruckheimer has already hinted there may a sixth edition of the movie. Bruckheimer mentions it will be up to the “fans” as to whether the franchise returns. A good showing financially might propel this franchise into several more attempts.


The first Pirates of the Caribbean was called Curse of the Black Pearl and was released in 2003. It was followed by Dead Man’s Chest in 2007 and the 2008 movie At World’s End. The fourth installment was released in 2011 and was called On Stranger Tides.


Sofia Coppola’s Unmade Blockbuster

Posted by admin on

The Screen Rant website has an interesting article about the possibility of acclaimed film director Sofia Coppola one day making a big-budget franchise film, something that she has never done before. Coppola is known for directing small-scale, low-budget films as opposed to major studio releases of franchise films such as those in the Spider-Man series.


At the most recent Cannes film festival, Coppola drew attention for making comments to the effect that she felt she might lose creative control as directing a feature film that was being made for a major studio but that she wouldn’t rule out doing so one day. It is noted that now would be a good time for this to happen because female directors are being recruited for female-oriented films such as Wonder Woman. The author of the article also went on to contrast Coppola’s small-scale films like “Lost in Translation,” which was basically filmed in a hotel, to her father’s epic features like “Apocalypse Now,” which was full of elaborate special effects and expensive props.


In my opinion, Coppola should stick to what she’s known for – making small, effective films. If you look at her film about Marie Antoinette, there aren’t any epic battle scenes, and there’s no reliance on elaborate period sets. The film works based on the strengths of the script, directing and acting, and that’s the way it should be. Good directors make good films with the help of a lot of money, but great directors do more with less.


Speculation Circulates About A Baseball Movie Sequel

Posted by admin on

Established Hollywood studios have long demonstrated conservatism about one issue: with respect to financing new movies, entertainment companies generally prefer “a sure thing” to gambling on new, potentially risky ventures. Films with a proven track record of box office success offer fertile territory for creating spinoffs, prequels and sequels because they can count on support from an audience of existing fans.


Recently, entertainment industry news sources such as the website detected a buzz circulating around the possibility of a new film based on Major League (1989). While the fate of the project remains uncertain at this point in time, Charlie Sheen tantalizingly revealed a “dynamite” script for another sequel already exists and simply awaits financial backing. He indicated several former cast members have expressed willingness to participate in a reprise of their earlier roles in a Major League III production.


The box office hit starring Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, Corbin Bernsen, Wesley Snipes, Margaret Whitton and Rene Russo won a loyal audience a few decades ago. Directed and written by David S. Ward, the comedy about a Cleveland baseball team has been described by Chris Cwik as a “classic” among baseball genre films. It spawned two sequels: Major League II(1994) and Major League: Back to the Minors(1998).


Although the prospect of another sequel to the original Major League(1989) apparently remains uncertain, recent releases from major motion picture studios demonstrate the undying popularity of sequels in the United States. Perhaps another comedy about baseball will entertain audiences soon?



Resident Evil Series to Get a Very Quick Reboot

Posted by admin on

The final chapter of the Resident Evil movie franchise is turning to not be the final chapter after all. Well, the original series is finished but that doesn’t even remotely mean the end for the classic horror/zombie/action movie series. A new reboot is in the works. Incredibly, there won’t even be much breathing room between the Milla Jovovich-starring franchise and the upcoming new one.


Fans of the Resident Evil movies and video games are not exactly going to complain. Long-time fans contributed the incredible level of support that allowed a “b-movie” series to rise far above what most forgettable video game adaptations never could. While critics did not exactly say kind things about Resident Evil films, people kept buying tickets for the theatrical releases. Resident Evil never ended up on the direct-to-video pathway since theatrical interest remained strong.


Jovovich’s comments about the upcoming reboot were pointed. She admits the plans for a reboot are not new and have been in the pipeline for a long time. Jovovich suggests the same level of passion that went into the first franchise needs to go into the next.


Those words really should be heeded by those planning to make a new Resident Evil series. If the approach in the new franchise is simply to attach the Resident Evil name to a soulless rehash of the original films, then the series may very well end up in the direct-to-video or the direct-to-cable world.


The makers of Resident Evil surely want to keep the series going for a very obvious reason. The entertainment industry is about making money. Canceling a series that is doing so well at the box office would fly in the face of all business logic.


The Resident Evil films provide enough violent escapism to keep fans coming back for more. And they do want more, which is why the reboot is being fast tracked.


Val Kilmer is Eager To Return To Top Gun

Posted by admin on

Top Gun is one of those franchises that have been successful, but then has been lying dormant for more than 20 years now. There have been talks about getting the sequel off the ground for years. However, the time just wasn’t right. Given the success of the franchise, it has launched stars such as Meg Ryan, Tom Cruise, and Val Kilmer. Both Cruise and Kilmer are set to return to the franchise which is in the process of looking at directors. As of right now, the producers are looking at Joseph Kosinski of Tron Legacy and Oblivion directing the film.


One good thing about Val Kilmer being eager to return as Iceman is that he has been dealing with health issues. Among the things that he has been rumored to suffer from is cancer. However, Val Kilmer has expressed an eagerness to return to the role that has brought him to the forefront. After Top Gun, Val Kilmer has had his share of roles. Among the roles he has played is Bruce Wayne in Batman Forever. He has also starred in The Saint.


Of course Tom Cruise is going to be headlining the cast. The only thing that is uncertain is the story of Top Gun 2. The only thing that is certain is that they are getting ready to start filming before the end of the year so that they can get everything ready. This could be another nostalgic trip for people who have enjoyed the original. Now, it is only a matter of time.
