Set Photos Leaked for Top Gun 2

Apparently Tom Cruise and Miles Teller have formed a bromance on the set of Top Gun: Maverick. While Tom is no doubt a great actor, he is a deeply strange, creepy dude. Having said that, I imagine it’s next to impossible to not become best friends with the guy while flying around in jets and shooting with him in a role you grew up dreaming of as a child. A bunch of pics are out from the set via HollywoodPipeline. 

“You can be my wingman any time.”

Teller is playing the role of Goose’s son in the film and old Tom is back in the saddle as Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. Teller looks the part with the stache and oddly long head, no word on what his call sign will be yet or if he’ll carry the “Goose” mantle. Even Val Kilmer is bringing Iceman back, but unfortunately no pics of him yet. Very interested to see what kind of shape Val is in for this, there are internet rumors he’s had some health problems. 

“I will fire when I’m goddamn good and ready! You got that?”

This man is supposed to be 56 years old. I swear he has the DNA of a fucking turtle. Expectations are sky high for this film and there will definitely be riots in the streets if they fuck this up (ok, maybe just me).

As much as I love the first film you can’t try to recreate that magic so here’s hoping this is more in the vein of the newer Mission Impossible Tom films these past few years. The director is the same guy who did Oblivion with Tom in the past, and Only The Brave so I have faith. We need dog fights, we need drones, we need drama filled cock pit shots with sweat beading down their faces and radar lock tones, we need Kenny Loggins back on the soundtrack. Who’s the enemy this time? The Russians again? Covert Ops in Korea? China!? ALIENS!!!?!?

These are my favorite pics released so far. Just because Tom’s too damn tiny to step over the bar and has to monkey his way down.

Teller is rocking an Eagles hat in a few of these but there’s no way this is anything for the film (He’s a Philly guy in rl). There’s 0% Goose and his kid would be Eagle’s fans, definitely big mid west guys. 

The current release date is set for June of 2020. Let’s hope Val holds up til then.

Godzilla King Of The Monsters Will Be Insane

https://twitter.com/GodzillaMovie/status/1072174128923209729

I may be bias but this has potential to be the best movie of the summer. I’ve been watching 1970 versions of Godzilla since the day I was born and its about time he gets his shine. Especially after Matthew Broderick almost ruined the entire franchise.

https://giphy.com/gifs/godzilla-roland-emmerich-1998-AcrHu3tI3mUmc

Judging by the trailer this is going to be the good Titans vs the bad in a bloodbath to see who will run earth. 2 + hours of incredible fight scenes mixed with humans that the movie writers knew we would immediately love. This movie is loaded with stars of both the human and monster form. Here is who:

America’s Sweetheart – Millie Bobby Brown

You kidding me? You put Millie into ANYTHING and people are automatically going to love her. Whether she is fucking up Demogorgon or trying to survive evil Kaiju Titans, Millie is Queen. 

Coach Taylor aka Kyle Chandler 

Find me a more likable human…you can’t. I would go to war for this man.

Tywin Lannister aka Charles Dance

https://tenor.com/view/long-live-the-king-long-lived-imperishable-perdurable-heir-gif-12209324

Anytime you have Tywin Lannister talking about Kinds I am all in. It is also rumored that he is the tie in between the Godzilla vs Kong in 2020. Him being the older version of Hiddleston’s character in the Skull Island Movie. 

Now onto the Monster’s. 

The Man Himself Godzilla

What an absolute unit. Not the hero we deserve but the hero we need. 

King Ghidorah 

Everyone knows this will be the main event. Godzilla vs King Ghidorah is what everyone has been waiting for. 3 headed Mega Dragon is what nightmares are made of.

Mothra 

I was always confused by Mothra because who the fuck is afraid of a moth but I am not here to judge. 

Rodan

A fucking flaming bird coming out of a Volcano?????? SIGN ME UP. 

I cannot wait for this Movie. I will honestly be the first person in line for the premiere. This is the pinnacle of my 30 years on this earth.

Clint Eastwood’s The Mule Based On Real-Life Hoosier

The New York Times – Leo Sharp, the most prolific drug mule that regional law enforcement had ever tracked, was placed under arrest. The Sinaloa cartel’s nickname for him was well chosen. They called him Tata. Grandfather.

Leo Sharp (played by Clint Eastwood) pleaded guilty on October 8, 2013, to drug conspiracy charges and was sentenced to 3 years in federal prison.  He was 87 when he was arrested and a resident of Michigan City, IN.  He was a WWII vet who owned a Day-lilly farm and became infamous for being the biggest, oldest and most trusted drug mule of El Chapo’s Sinaloa Cartel.  

The biggest risk for drug cartels is a “cold” stop that results in the seizure of their drugs and/or money.  That’s where the right cop just happens to be in the right place at the right time.  No one tips him or her off ahead of time about the vehicle, he or she is just out working traffic like any other cop. That’s a “cold” stop.

There are law enforcement officers who have specific training and expertise in drug trafficking interdiction.  Sometimes they are directed by narcotics detectives or federal drug agents to stop specific cars because they have direct knowledge that it’s transporting drugs.  But most of their stops are “cold” or routine stops for simple traffic violations.  Usually, the car is driven by an ordinary citizen just trying to get from point A to point B.  But occasionally the car is driven by a drug trafficker or “mule” and the car is loaded down with cocaine or some other drug.  What sucks for that driver is, these cops can usually tell the difference.

Here’s what happens in the second scenario.  The drug interdiction cop stops the vehicle for a simple traffic violation but quickly becomes suspicious of the driver and/or vehicle because of observations made that are consistent with drug traffickers or vehicles used for drug trafficking.  Or the driver simply behaves in a manner typical of someone concealing contraband in their vehicle.  When the cop’s mental drug radar goes off, he or she starts asking detailed questions about the vehicle, where the driver is coming from, where he’s headed, who he’s visiting and why…every question is designed to allow the officer ample time to observe and listen for signs of deception.

These particular cops are very good at what they do and are highly sensitive to the smell of bullshit.  So when the driver’s answers don’t add up, the cop is quick to call for a drug dog to conduct a sniff of the vehicle’s exterior.  Game over.

https://giphy.com/gifs/dog-roll-over-cool-UDdLeJWqUKPCM

These seizures suck for the cartel and cost them a great deal of money.  They also usually result in the cooperation of the mule, or at least the seizure and analysis of their cell phone.  Either way, this ends up spurring an investigation on the supplier and the buyer of the drugs, which tends to disrupt the cartel’s operation here in the states.  So, to minimize the chance of cold-stop seizures, cartels began to employee the most inconspicuous people possible to transport their drugs and money.  Enter 87-year-old WWII vet, Leo Sharp.  Even the best drug interdiction cop would never suspect this dude of anything more than senility.  

Leo had a good run.  He successfully transported cocaine from Mexico to the U.S. and money from the U.S. to Mexico for over a decade.  He made more than $1 million cash from his cocaine/money runs in 2010 alone.  But all good things must come to an end and eventually Sharp was caught transporting over 200 kilos of cocaine in 2011, thanks to the DEA wiretap on El Chapo and his organization’s network that ran from Mexico to Detroit. 

It’s an unbelievable true story about a good ole boy from Indiana that, at an age when most men are playing checkers in an assisted-living facility, played a major role in one of El Chapo’s largest drug-trafficking networks.  Who better to take on this role than the legend himself, Clint Eastwood?  The Mule comes to theaters December 14th and I can’t wait.

Detective Pikachu is my wet dream

https://twitter.com/VancityReynolds/status/1062027112041926656

WHAT IN THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED. I don’t know how to describe what I am feeling but I am for sure going to do my best to describe it. I feel like I’m in junior high and I just saw my first whale tail thong for the first time again. I feel like I do on Christmas morning if Christmas was a surprise each year and I had no idea it was coming. I feel like someone in Hollywood has been watching my dreams each night and decided this was the dream that deserves to be a movie. Is my favorite actor going to be in a movie based upon my favorite childhood cartoon franchise? WHAT A FUCKING MONDAY, WHAT A TRAILER. 

This is Deadpool meets Ted, meets Pokemon. What else could you want?

This will be good because it is going to have Ryan Reynold’s dry dickhead humor put into a Pikachu that can talk. Its like Ted. Any stuffed animal cute looking thing with a dickhead personality is funny. 

This will also be good because strictly because it’s the first time we will see Pokemon on a screen since the weird Japanese cartoon drawings we grew up with. We are used to this:

Versus this:

Its going to be like watching porn in 2000 vs 2018. You’re going to be blown away no matter what. 

I will be first in line for this movie and I better see every Pokemon ever created in this movie.

After Watching Netflix’s ‘The Outlaw King’ Living In The 14th Century Would Be Terrible

No Spoilers – Last night,  I decided to watch Netflix’s newest movie, The Outlaw King. Here are a few of my thoughts on the movie and time period.

https://giphy.com/gifs/tiff-toronto-international-film-festival-tiff18-outlaw-king-7TtAgthlIMbsrpGUsi

This movie was awesome. It felt more like the second installment in the Braveheart series than just a Netflix movie out of nowhere. I think they should of pitched it that way but another reason I enjoyed it was because I didn’t completely understand the story line so figuring that out in the beginning was awesome. As far as timeline goes, this movie starts before William Wallace dies in Braveheart. This man spinning his sword in the GIF above was my favorite character by a Scottish mile. Douglas was his name and it will be the last thing you forget after watching this movie. This dude is an absolute weapon and is equivalent to the crazy Irish guy from Braveheart.

Stannis Baratheon from Game of Thrones, Stephen Dillane in RL, played the English King like a real prick so hats off to him. Huge Stephen Dillane guy ever since Greatest Game Ever Played with Shia Labeouf. Dillane’s kid in this movie is the real dingbat that Chris Pine rivals against. Chris Pine, who plays Robert the Bruce and the King of Scots, dominated this movie while also having the rare ‘chins up, trousers down’ scene. Hey, if Chris Pine wants to go all in on a movie, you will see him getting out of a river, swinging his King of Scots dick and there’s nothing you can do about it. This movie is well worth the watch and I highly recommend it to anyone who liked Braveheart (everyone). I would love to hear what you guys thought about the ending too, I have a very strong opinion but no spoilers here.

https://giphy.com/gifs/prince-charming-rzwHm7ZFHp160

However, living during this time is something I don’t recommend at all. It blows my mind how Kings used to just give away their grand daughters and shit. Imagine not wanting a wife and a King just gives you one? ‘Actually, no I’m really ok. I appreciate your grand daughter but my old wife just died and I’m really enjoying it.’ Even if that was the case, you could just do anything because woman had negative rights back then. Also, this movie is shown through the Scottish lords at the time, but not having any money back then was basically a one way ticket to being dead 25. ‘Did you hear about Shane? Yeah, he sneezed and died two days later.’ I think I would do well back then, mostly cause in my made up scenario I’m living in a Castle and never leave it. The Outlaw King had the feel of an old movie and was a wild ride from beginning to end. Very excited that Netflix movies are this legitimate and hopefully going forward the movies match this great one.
