Let’s face it folks, 2016 has been a supreme bitch so far. The Grim Reaper has been running rampant stealing away precious lives like David Bowie, Alan Rickman, The Eagles’ Glenn Frey and Prince among others. Violence and terrorism has circulated the globe non-stop from attacks on gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando to trucks crashing into Bastille Day crowds in Nice, France. That asshat orange-colored buffoon is being allowed to run for President of the United States.
Then, today, my cold, black, heart began rapidly beating a crimson color filled again with hope and joy after My Chemical Romance posted a 30-second cryptic video teaser on their newly revamped website at the same time their social media pages were updated with the new logo and video post. The video concludes with the date 9.23.16. New merchandise is available online and of course at Hot Topic. The new logo featuring a cross, MCR and the letter X, or Roman numeral ten were quickly interpreted as a sign of resurrection to celebrate the 10th anniversary of My Chemical Romance’s iconic 2006 album Welcome to the Black Parade.
The only other solid news that came out today from major news outlets is that the band will re-release the Black Parade along with some previously unreleased material. No other word on what else may be in store for this deeply missed band.
For those lucky enough to attend Comic Con in San Diego this week, I would bet you won’t get much more than a sheepish grin from Gerard Way as he signs for both Dark Horse and DC Comics on Friday, July 22nd. Here’s a little flashback to my time at Comic Con 2009 when I literally got stuck in a human traffic jam as security halted us to allow Hall H to empty out. When I turned around to see who else got stuck I found Gerard & Mikey standing behind me.
I count myself extremely lucky to be an Angeleno, because I know if shows do happen, they will happen in Los Angeles. Like the rest of you, I don’t know exactly what My Chemical Romance has in store for us for the last half of 2016 but my best guess would be some tour dates to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Welcome to the Black Parade. Will it be a one-off tour to honor this album? Will there be new music? Only time will tell but you can bet if Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Frank Iero and Ray Toro are reuniting for some shows, my happy ass will be camped out on the sidewalk!
Killjoys, make some noise!
Edit: An update after yesterday’s cryptic teaser video. Today, the band made the following statement on their Facebook page, “We’ve been really touched and blown away by the response to the teaser trailer. We are not touring and there is no reunion planned – only a release for the anniversary of The Black Parade.
Thanks so much for continuing to keep MCR in your minds and in your hearts.”
So, at this point killjoys, the only noise is the sound of hearts around the globe breaking again…
Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall star in The Judge, in theaters today! The plot goes like this:
A successful lawyer returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral only to discover that his estranged father, the town’s judge, is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.
The movie also stars Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D’ Onofrio, Jeremy Strong, Dax Shepard and Leighton Meester.
I’ve read a mixed bag of reviews regarding this movie and I can’t wait to see it and form my own opinion. I’ve been amazed to hear long time Downey fans state that “once was enough”, critics digressing on about how it’s a long and meandering film (kind of like their reviews?) to people raving it’s one of their new favorite films.
This is the first movie from Robert and Susan Downey’s production company, Team Downey and it looks like an exciting risk for them to release a movie that will make you laugh, maybe cry and definitely sit back and think about your own family issues.
If you see The Judge this weekend, come back and let us know what you thought of it
The Smurfs left miles of smiles on the faces of Saturday morning cartoon fans throughout the 1980’s as this smurftacular powder-blue crew, including Brainy, Lazy, Vanity and Smurfette, led by the wise, gentle and 542-year-old Papa Smurf. They live in their mushroom houses and battle Gargamel, the local evil wizard, who is forever scheming against the tiny team but our little friends outsmurf him every time!
The Smurfs in 3D from Sony Pictures is out now in theaters starring Neil Patrick Harris, along with the voice talents of Katy Perry as Smurfette, George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf and Hank Azaria as Gargamel. The Smurfs tied with the Universal Pictures, Jon Favreau (Iron Man) directed, Cowboys and Aliens over the weekend for the top spot each grossing approximately $36 million in their opening weekends. Helloooo Harrison Ford!
I do digress, but really, who isn’t distracted by Harrison Ford? Take the kids out to see the Smurfs in 3D and when they undoubtedly fall in love with this tiny group of blue creatures, who will fuel their smurftacular little imaginations, stop by your local Target or Best Buy on the way home and pick up The Smurfs: A Magical Smurf Adventure on DVD. Enjoy 10 classic episodes with the adorable Smurfette and wise Papa Smurf in his red cap over and over with the kids! It’s OK, we won’t tell if you pop it in the DVD player after the kids have gone to bed to relive your childhood and catch a favorite episode! Who doesn’t love the Smurfs?
So tell me, did you watch Tom & Jerry growing up? I know it was on all the time in our household and I love that Tom & Jerry Fur Flying Adventures Volume 2 is out now on DVD for another generation to enjoy! It’s hard to believe that Hanna Barbera created this zany cartoon more than 70 years ago! Amazingly, every decade since Tom & Jerry’s inception in the 1940’s have seen the comic duo re-emerge as a top cartoon in that decade from Saturday morning cartoons to movie shorts, they are always there.
In case you aren’t overly familiar with the cat & mouse team (perhaps you’ve just returned from say, Mars?) here is a little bit more info about them and what to expect on this fun-filled DVD from Warner Bros. I love how Spike the dog always steps in to help Jerry and how the lady of the house usually catches Tom in the act of some wrongdoing and yells out “Thomas!”.
One flustered feline + one resourceful rodent = 14 wild and wacky cartoons! Tom – the eternally crabby cat – and Jerry – the hopelessly adorable mouse – find themselves in a fracas once, twice and many times again in this latest bunch of 14 fast and funny cartoons! This time around the dizzy duo takes their tiffs to the beach (Surf-Bored Cat), to the Alps (The A-Tom-inable-Snowman) and to the orchestra (Tom and Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl). In Top with Pops Spike the dog pounces into the fray and Jerry learns a mouse’s best friend is a dog! Even vampire hunter Van Helsing gets in the middle of the cat/mouse combat in Monster Con. Your hunt stops here: this new collection of animated antics will delightfully drop you into the middle of non-stop family fun!
As a parent, one of the best things about having kids is that you still get to watch cartoons on a regular basis! I love this DVD compilation because it contains 14 different episodes so if the kids really want to watch some Tom & Jerry, they can pop it in and watch an episode or two without taking over the TV for the time it takes to watch an entire movie. I’m really enjoying the resurgence of cartoons that I enjoyed on Saturday mornings long past and hope you will enjoy this fun DVD with your family too.
From director Todd Phillips (the Hangover) and Warner Bros. Pictures, comes Due Date, a hilarious new comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis as two unlikely companions thrown together on a road trip that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous.
Downey plays Peter Highman, an expectant first-time father whose wife’s due date is only days away. As he hurries to catch a flight home to Los Angeles from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring actor and disaster-magnet Ethan Tremblay (Galifianakis) leads to the two of them being tossed off the plane and placed on a no-fly list.
With no alternatives in sight, Peter is forced to hitch a ride with Ethan and his French bulldog on what turns out to be a cross-country road trip that will destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter’s last nerve.
The comedy also stars Michelle Monaghan, Juliette Lewis and Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx. The film will open on November 5, 2010. Early reviews and theater audience reaction to the trailer have been great. This movie looks to be another sure-fire hit for Downey.
