Which Of These Phenomenal Young Actors Will Debase Themselves To Play John McClane Jr. In Die H5rd?
We Pajiban writers are a little divided on where the Die Hard franchise ought to have stopped. Some say two, some say three. Everyone agrees that four was an exploding bridge too far (oh yes, even with The Olyphant). And now with five, we’ve all just thrown up our hands in disgust. Yipee ki yay, mother f*cker. So no, no I do not want to see it. I don’t care if you cast Aaron Paul, do you hear me? NOT EVEN BEN FOSTER WILL TEMPT ME. Okay Ben Foster might tempt me. (/Film)
That being said (shouted) this Seussian take on the dumb A Good Day To Die Hard title is pretty cute. From /Film reader Jeremy Todd:
You know I don’t do sports, so I’m not personally vouching for this Grantland piece on the collapse of the Red Sox, but D-Day sent it my way and it’s written by Michael Schur of “Parks and Recreation” fame. (Grantland)
D-Day also sent me this article on swanky iPhone cases because he knows how excited I am for mine to arrive. LOOK AT THE BOOK ONE! (App Advice)
Another sports-ish link comes from S0crates-Johnson. Some wack-a-doodle was inspired by Ryan Gosling’s Drive to, um, throw a hot dog at Tiger Woods? Also, said wack-a-doodle come from my neck of the woods so no doubt he was stoned out of his tiny mind. Caution, there is an ad with sound on this site. (ESPN)
I learned yesterday from a commenter that this is emphatically NOT a Venn Diagram. What it is, I guess, is a charming visual representation of the differences between Zombies, Robots and Aliens. With overlapping circles. Why isn’t this a Venn Diagram again? Because there are three? (Braeburn)
You commenters ARE very clever and knowledgable. Did you know that one of the comment threads from Reddit is being turned into a film? Come on guys, we can totally out smart those asses. (Film School Rejects)
I also have faith that you are clever enough to come up with a new name for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory’s radio observatory in New Mexico. Right now? It’s called The Very Large Array. Which is what I prefer to call Sofia Vergara’s rack. They’re taking suggestions. (Boing Boing
Here’s an infographic breakdown of the top 10 filming location. Ugh, Canadians, always stealing our jobs. (Wistia)
For “Game of Thrones” fans, check out this local pet shop poster. I guffawed. (Geeks Are Sexy)
I’ve never particularly disliked Very Pretty Taylor Swift. I’ve felt rather indifferent. But now that I know she donated 6,000 books to a Pennsylvania library as part of an ongoing plan to bail out libraries in need? I kind of love her. (Celebitchy)
You guys like JGL, right? I think I heard that you did. And some of you still like Anne Hathaway, yes? Well here they both are. Singing. IN FRENCH. There’s a lot of banter before they get to the sexy french singing, but it’s worth it. I promise you.
