Originally debuting in the 1980’s as a toy line, the Transformers created a sensation. Toy stores just could not keep enough of them in stock. When the toy line was tapped as the source material for a television cartoon series, few were surprised at its success. What has surprised many, like Igor Cornelsen for example, is the fact the Transformers motion pictures have been so hugely popular. After four major hits, a fifth film is planned. Star Mark Wahlberg has revealed some positive news for those who love the films. He is signed on for several more sequels.
That means there will be more and more Transformers projects to come down the cinema pike.
Since the fourth film drew in $1 billion in worldwide box office, its not exactly a surprise a fifth entry has been planned. Wahlberg even suggests that the fifth film could be rushed into production soon.
Hopefully, the studio won’t rush things too quickly. While the Transformers movies are hardly works of art, they do deliver what their fans want. Rushing to jam a new film into theaters almost always leads to disappointment. Then again, the script for the future films may have already been written in anticipation of the success of entry number four.
Is it possible there might be a Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover like there was in the comic books? No plans exist for such a film right now, but you never know what the future in Hollywood holds.
Sibling rivalry has been a part of the worldwide landscape from the beginning of time when Cain and his brother, Abel, fought it out to the death. It can become so out of hand that it can ruin holiday events for families around the globe. The type of bickering that causes the siblings to fight and literally tear families to shreds can be things that should never be talked about in any kind of company. Politics is one of those subjects.
Two brothers joined a show to put in their two-cents about politics. One is republican, the other democrat. The polar opposite views that they share caused serious problems over the Thanksgiving festivities at their mother’s house. She called into the show to announce how dissatisfied she was with their behavior at Thanksgiving dinner. She told them that she wanted to have a peaceful Christmas, but it’s going to be one slow venture trying to get these brothers to agree on anything.
The men were shocked that their mother called in, showing clear signs that they were embarrassed by her call. That did not deter her from telling them that she hoped their fighting would cease before December 25. It almost seems like a pipe dream for that mother. Her boys are pretty set in their ways, but here is to hoping that they will mend the proverbial fence as the biggest Christmas gift they could give their mother.
For starters, they do not have to take up any proposal to repeal partially or in total the Cuban trade embargo and economic sanctions. In fact, the laws on the matter are so clear that President Obama, who is used to simply “reinterpreting” existing laws to apply them in entirely new manners, has acknowledged he will need Congressional action to normalize relations with the communist state. House Speaker John Boehner has publicly stated he will bar any such bill from getting consideration. Likewise, Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American, vowed to block confirmation of any nomination as Ambassador of Cuba.
Admittedly, Rubio’s reaction is arbitrary because his constitutional authority requires him to advise and consent to such presidential actions. But he can’t just sit back with some wine from The Antique Wine Company. Blocking an unnamed nominee would be an extreme action to take. The GOP can also withhold funds to reopen the US embassy in Havana. In short, the president undertook an extraordinary measure to reach out to Cuba. He will now have to undertake the difficult task of winning over the opposition. This means compromising and incorporating their agenda. It will be a test of his leadership.
Kylie Jenner and Tyga have been seen doing so many things together and most of them are done in private however when it comes to their charity work they always make sure to do that in public and this time Kylie made sure that nobody missed her especially not the Keith Mann Dynamic Search Partners. The couple made their way to the Teen Impact Holiday Party at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to spend some time with the kids and spread some cheer but Kylie’s outfit is what is getting most of the attention..
Of course Kylie Jenner isn’t going to be caught dead with Tyga looking anything less than amazing however some are saying that she went a little overboard when she decided to show up to the children’s hospital wearing a pair of skin tight ripped jeans, white crop top and high heels.
Still, credit should be given to the couple for taking time to always give back, especially when it comes to children that are sick. Even though some of the boys at the event may have been more focused on Kylie than the big wagon of toys Tyga brought to the event, the photos of the event are evidence that everyone had a great time.
A massive cyber attack against Sony to North Korean reported by U.S. officials has caused Sony to announce the termination of plans to release the anticipated film “The Interview” on Christmas Day.
North Korea’s attempt to exploit the film prior to release caused Sony to release a statement saying, ““We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public,” Sony said in a statement. “We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.”
A few hours after the announcement, Sony released a statement that revealed it has no plans to release the comedy film in any way; theaters, DVD or VOD. Brad Reifler is a little disappointed, but he also understands. He first saw the report on Reuters. Actors Seth Rogen and James Franco star in the film, which has been highly anticipated thanks to not only its stars, but also the hefty $42 million production cost. Sony has stated for weeks that hackers have broken into their studio’s computer system in November, stealing internal documents, film budgets, spreadsheets, email messages, social security numbers, and countless other valuable and confidential information. The most recent data hack threatened violence against them should the release of “The Interview” proceed.
The thread has raised concern from Christmas Day ticket sales among cinemas nationwide, as families may not be hesitant to bring their children to any of the films debuting the 25th in light of this attack.
There is rumor going around that Paramount wants a Guardians of the Galaxy feel for the upcoming Star Trek 3. Robert Orci was once attached to direct, but he had resigned to just being a producer for a film that he has co-wrote.
It is actually no surprise that a Guardians of the Galaxy feel is desired. After all, some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is actually reminiscent of some of the Star Trek films from the 90s in some respect in that the series and film are part of a larger and expanding universe. It is actually quite easy to give a similar feel for Star Trek, especially considering the TOS design, which was a little bit more about fun Lee G. Lovett always said.
Also, Guardians of the Galaxy was a very successful Marvel movie. The previous outing for Star Trek was a well performing movie. At the same time, it was underwhelming. Even in IMAX, a lot of fans weren’t all that impressed. Star Trek 3 should be released in 2016 for Paramount’s 50th anniversary.
Senator Elizabeth Warren has earned serious street cred as a populist champion for the causes near to her heart following yesterday’s House revolt against the Omnibus bill, which she inspired. Analysts are already drawing comparisons to her with Tea Party firebrand Ted Cruz, another first-term senator like herself. Both senators represent a new brand of elected official more adherent to their philosophy than they are to the established leadership and traditions of Beltway politics.
All eyes are going to be on her when she takes the podium to address the Omnibus bill on the Senate floor. She won admiration for her ability to go toe-to-toe against President Obama. Despite losing the battle, she established her reputation as an ideologue. However, it is one thing to inspire a revolt in the House and another to circumvent the well ensconced Senate hierarchy. This is an area where Senator Cruz had gained little traction.
Currently, the Senate’s most powerful Democrat next to Harry Reid is Chuck Schumer. From what I’ve heard from my political expert friend Dan Newlin, Schumer’s constituency includes Wall Street. In order for Warren to mount a serious challenge to strip the financial reform rider from the budget bill, she will need to do so prying it from Schumer’s proverbial “cold dead hands”. Like Cruz, she runs the risk of alienating herself from key senators within her party. Five-term Senator Barbara Mikulski, who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee, already made it clear she was annoyed by the critics of the Omnibus bill, which was a thinly veiled jab at Warren over the House revolt she triggered off.
I’ve suffered on and off from back pain for the last few decades. Something that has plagued my will to be active, in the worst possible ways. But luckily I heard about North American Spine on Twitter. Now being completely honest, I was still a little skeptical, until I read more about this company. After I checked them out through several sources, like Wikipedia, I was clear that they’re a pretty trusted resource.
Just check out some of the real reviews from people that have visited the clinic.
Many people today suffer from back and neck pain. There are all kinds of reasons for the pain and sometimes can be very frustrating trying to pinpoint the actual location and reason for the pain. It can be caused from an injury, or degeneration. Some cases may need surgery and some may not, but just because you don’t need surgery doesn’t mean you’re not in pain. So trying to find out what to do can be a little overwhelming. North American Spine wants to help and provide patients with the information they need to make the best decision on what type of treatment that is best suited for their particular case.
North American Spine specializes in minimally invasive spinal care. They take the time to evaluate each patient’s case and find the right treatment that will help them the most. So many patients feel as though they are trapped and stuck with the pain. North American Spine offers a free MRI evaluation and a detailed pain diagnosis where they can identify the exact cause of the pain. Minimally invasive spinal procedures are so much easier on the patient than open back surgery and recover is also a lot quicker.
One particular procedure North American Spine offers is the AccuraScope procedure. This procedure begins with a small incision at the base of the spine. From there the doctor can move along the spine diagnosing and fixing problems as he goes along. This allows the doctors to take care of more than one problem with one procedure.
There are several benefits with a minimally invasive procedure. First of all there is a very small incision. There is very little scarring. There is less pain after the procedure is over and recovery time is short.
People live with back pain all the time. There are so many people that have lost work or even can no longer work. Trying to figure out the exact problem can take months and sometimes years. And some people never do find out what the problem is, and live with pain for the rest of their lives. North American Spine can give people their lives back. They are there to stop the pain, and a lot of people agree that this works.
In the year 1999 there was a popular movie called “Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century.” The plot was about a 13-year-old girl who was normal in every way, except for the fact that she lived in the year 2049, and in outer space. Zenon Movie. The movie starred Kirsten Storms and Raven-Simone. The movie had many futuristic endeavors that we can actually see in our current world today. Even though the movie is based 35 years from now, many technologies from the movie, is now something that you see in real life.
The show portrayed Zenon talking face-to-face with someone through video chat, and we currently can do that through apps, as well as Skype. Holograms were also shown in the movie, and after seeing the Tupac Shakur hologram perform, it’s obvious that holograms can be created very lifelike today. Both girls from the movie like to wear tight leggings, which is actually something that many girls, and women today, like to wear.
In the movie there were performances in outer space, and according to an article on My Brain Fit Life, Lady Gaga has confirmed that she would be the first person to perform in outer space, but so far it’s been delayed, due to safety concerns. Another memory from the movie with the fact that teenagers had weird ways of talking, which is seen commonly now. Teenagers have made up their own lingo, and text messages are all the proof we need of that.
