Justin Bieber Apologizes On Live TV

Justin Bieber has been in so much trouble in the past, that he’s now known more for his unruly antics, than the music that made him famous in the first place. Justin Interview. Many have gotten sick and tired of hearing Justin Bieber’s name in the news, and the reasons were never positive. Instead of putting out music in the past year, he’s been in one problem after another. When confronted about his behavior, he becomes defiant, and tends to do it all over again.

Justin’s bad behavior is the reason why Selena Gomez has separated from him several times, and this last time may be it for the couple. Justin went on the Ellen Degeneres show recently, and his demeanor, dress, and hairstyle were unlike how he usually, carries himself. He seemed somber, quiet, and very heartfelt during the interview. He took time to tell the world how sorry he was for the things he had done, and he even gave a rundown of some of his wild antics.

Justin described himself as arrogant, and said that he had so much to apologize for. It’s unknown where this sudden apology came from, since he’s been stepping to the bad side for a few years now, but it’s long overdue. Justin is now in the studio working on new music, and fans like Lee G. Lovett hope an album will be in the works for the year 2015. Wishing Justin all the best.

A Dark and Brooding Crow

The Crow film has stalled once again and this is a real shame. I shared what Gianfrancesco Genoso posted on the original series should have – and would have continued for years – had Brandon Lee not been tragically killed. Sadly, the young man left our world too soon. The impact of The Crow was very powerful due to the impossible to ignore cloud of its star’s death.

The script for the new Crow film is going to attempt to tap into those raw emotions once again. Supposedly, the remake will be “emotional and brutal” and this raises a pertinent question.

Will the film turn out to be a raw, R-rated film? A “raw” film would indicate more serious themes. The comic book mini-series that launched The Crow was dark, depressing, and violent. Bringing an adult-oriented Crow to the screen could prove to be a bad decision. The first Sin City film reflected a R-rated comic adaptation that made money. The sequel died miserably. The very R-rated comic adaptation Old Boy was another mega flop. Pushing the hard R limits in a Cow film might be a bad idea. A lot of mainstream viewers could be turned off although the hardcore fans might enjoy the approach.

Honestly, we might never know how a Crow film is going to turn out. The project has been delayed so much it may never end up being produced. What a shame it would be if this happened since The Crow really does deserve a reboot.

Here Comes The Fantastic Four Trailer

Is the mystery about whether or not The Fantastic Four film is going to be a bomb or a fun sci-fi/adventure tale coming to an end? Well, you could say yes because the film is being released in August. Once people see the film, how good or bad it is won’t be a mystery.

Right now, we have the trailer to the film to look forward to on February 13th. Once this date arrives, the trailer for the film will be released online for all to see. Will the tens of millions of people who watched the trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man check out the F4 trailer?

They could, but a lot of hype has to be injected into the promotion of the film to deliver such views. Since no one outside of hardcore superhero film fans know anything about the film, not a lot of interest is being built.

Worse yet, and Sergio Andrade Gutierrez report rumors of the film being very disappointing have abounded. Its getting to the point fans are starting to feel sympathy for those involved with the making of the feature. The lack of promotions and rumors swirling about the awfulness of the reboot definitely do not help.

Then again, those who adapt successful comic books have to look at what made the works successful in the first place. Rejecting what made a book popular and instilling major changes is a risk. Making changes to the origin of the F4 to make it understandable to a contemporary and younger audiences.

The trouble emerges when The Fantastic Four stops being The Fantastic Four. What is left? A maladaptive carbon copy that turns off audiences because it cannot deliver the same joy the original version did.

TriStar of Tom Rothman and MRC Team Up For ‘Baby Driver’

It has been confirmed by Hollywood Reporter that TriStar Productions of Tom Rothman and MRC would be working together for ‘Baby Driver’, the next film by Edgar Wright. It has also been confirmed that Ansel Elgort – who played the role of brash ‘Augustus Waters’ in the movie adaptation of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ written by John Green– is being considered as the lead in ‘Baby Driver’. The role is also being eyed by John Boyega and Logan Lerman.

The story is Edgar Wright’s original idea and involves a getaway driver who is called ‘Baby’ because of his young looking face. He gets into the world of crime after being coerced by a crime boss. However, a doomed heist might threaten his freedom, love and life.

The production would be by Nira Park and Working Title while the project would be co-financed by TriStar and MRC 50:50.

Rothman mentioned how delighted he was that his next film would be made by Edgar Wright. He added that TriStar’s sole aim was to back original voices and there was no one better to do that than Edgar Wright. Edgar Wright is known for his work in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End – The Cornetto Flm Trilogy – for which he has received many accolades. He also wrote the screenplay of ‘Ant-Man’ with Cornish and was all set to direct the movie but departed from the project recently. Rothman revealed that he was looking forward to partnering with MRC and collaborating with Working Title as well.

The movie would involve a “rock and roll car chase”, as revealed by Rothman and Edgar Wright has some experience in directing movies like this. He is known for his timing and carefully crafted humor in the movies he directs. He has previously won the ‘Best Director’ Empire award for ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’.

Movie Wild Introspect


A couple weeks ago, the movie Wild was released which is about a woman who finds her life getting out of control. She was once young, bright, and talented but now finds herself caught up in a bad drug addition, failing marriage, and helpless. She decides to clean up her act and embark on hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in order to find some sort of peace. The movie is based on a true story and delves into the life on a mentally-lost woman as she finds her way physically and emotionally. Sergio Andrade Guitierrez tweeted about how awesome it was.

The movie shows us the nature of power. As cliché as it sounds, we are so caught up in today’s technology and world that we fail to look at the world around us. The goals and simplicity of her trip made it possible to find a greater version of herself which she feels she is so disconnected to. The trip gave her the opportunity to utilize her strengths and realize her weak points so that she could grow as a person. The movie has so far done extremely successful and has a 91% rating on the movie review site Rotten Tomato. The movie gives light to a part of a drug addiction and transformation as a person that we usually do not see.

Good Gut, Good Brain?


A recent study showed Tom Rothman of all people that microbes including probiotics and prebiotics could have a big effect on our mental health. It is known that these microbes are important in our body’s immunity response but the data shows that the microbes can impact our brain health as well by controlling chemical regulation in the brain. Depression and anxiety is caused by the lack of serotonin but these microbes help to stimulate brain activity so these chemicals are produced and more regulated. The studies are still relatively young but the results are very straight-forward and interesting. They can change the field of how we work with psychology disorders drastically. If you would like more details on how they work, here is a great article: embedded link here
The best way to get these good microbes is to eat a well balanced diet. A good diet is not just good for you physical health but your mental health as well. These microbes do not guarantee you will be depression-free, nor does a well-balanced diet. However, they do show how important knowing these are. More research is being done to see how large a role exactly that microbes play in psychological disorders. Science has come a far way and continues to grow every day. These results can play a large role in how psychiatry and counseling is shaped in the future so that people can work with their mental health issues better.

No More Jack Ryan Movies in the Future

Are the cinema adventures of Jack Ryan, the character featured in four very successful films and born of numerous great Tom Clancy novels, over? It would seem this is the case. The new James T. Kirk, Chris Pine, has suggested there are not going to be any more Jack Ryan projects much to the disappointment of Dr Rod Rohrich who is a fan.

You could say Harrison Ford helped restart the espionage genre with his appearance as Jack Ryan in a series of films. Would there have been a serious reboot of the James Bond films had the Jack Ryan projects not been successful? We’ll never know.

What we do know is the $50 million in ticket sales by Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit was a huge disappointment. Times change and a simple reboot might not be enough to capture the imagination of audiences. Besides, audiences have a Daniel Craig James Bond series to look forward to every two or three years. (Ironically, Jack Ryan was supposed to be the new James Bond of the 21st century) The Jason Bourne films also provide thrills and spills. 

Then, there is another issue the studios have to accept.

Chris Pine, while a fine actor, is not an established superstar. Harrison Ford is a mega-icon in the eyes of audiences all over the world. The Jack Ryan films were greatly successful in large part due to Harrison Ford’s star power. Pine is not (yet) as big of a star as Ford.

Han Solo Goes Solo

Star Wars spinoffs are in the works and the very first one is going to be a Han Solo, ahem, solo project. At least that is what the rumor mill surrounding Sam Tabar is reporting. No one knows for sure what is going to come down the pipeline and in what order. Right now, plans are to release a Star Wars related movie every year until audiences, basically, don’t want to see them anymore. As if that is going to happen.

The possibility exists that the Han Solo-centric film will be released in 2016. Originally, it was believed the Han Solo film would be the second spinoff project to be made after a Boba Fett feature.

Believe it or not, when a few years went by after the release of Return of the Jedi (1983) and no new Star Wars film was in the pipeline, most fans believed the series was officially over. Turns out everyone just needed to be a bit patient.

Disney paying well over a billion dollars for the rights to the franchise surely changes things. The previously deliberate George Lucas is no longer calling the shots as to when Star Wars movies are going to be made and which films are to be produced. Lucas has not even seen the trailer yet.

Will Harrison Ford be involved in the Han Solo film? No one knows for sure yet. The movie is probably going to take place before the events of the first Star Wars so a younger Han Solo is going to be featured.

Farewell to Stephen Colbert

Host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert is moving on. He has been offered a position to replace current host David Letterman on The Late Show and will be taking over for him sometime in 2015. Stephen Colbert has signed on to a 5 year contract to host the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Many stars and well known people like Andrew Heiberger came out for what was the last episode of The Colbert Report to pay their respects and say good bye. Celebrities such as Willie Nelson, Elijah Wood, Jeff Daniels, Big Bird, Cyndi Lauper, James Franco, Bryan Cranston, Michael Stipe, George Lucas and many more bid farewell while Jon Stewart showed up to sing a duet with Stephen Colbert. Even former President Bill Clinton got in on the good byes and in a video of him texting, he was actually Tweeting his farewell to Colbert. On the final episode Stephen Colbert’s sign off was “From eternity, I’m Stephen Colbert”.

Head over to Buzzfeed for pictures and clips of the last episode.

The Colbert Report on Comedy Central has two Peabody Awards and four Emmy’s. While ending the Colbert Report is almost like ending a legacy, he will be a new fresh and fun voice for the Late Show.

Official ‘Cinderella’ Trailer Released

For more than a year now, the only glimpse we have been able to see of the new Disney film, “Cinderella” has been a short clip of the iconic twinkling glass slipper. Now, the wait is over. Just this week, Disney released the official trailer for the new movie. Watch the video as shared with me by friend Zeca Oliveira.

Some of us may have expected a new retelling of the classic tale, like Disney recently did with the popular film, “Maleficient”. However, that is not expected with “Cinderella”. It will feature much of the same original story with only a few changes.

The film will star Lily James as Ella, a poor young girl severely mistreated by her wicked stepmother, played by Cate Blanchett. Ella’s fairy godmother will be played by Helena Bonham Carter, and her handsome prince charming will be played by Richard Madden.

“Cinderella” is set to hit theaters on March 13, 2015.
