UNSOLVED MYSTERIES---Netflix reboot underway of the reality investigation tv series hosted by Robert Stack that ran on NBC from 1987-1997.





GHOSTBUSTERS 3---Leslie Jones, who co-starred in the all-female GHOSTBUSTERS reboot movie, tweeted her comments on the upcoming Jason Reitman sequel, "So insulting. Like f*ck us. We dint count. It’s like something trump would do. (Trump voice) ”Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers” ugh so annoying. Such a d*ck move. And I don’t give f*ck I’m saying something!!"





MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS---documentary about the vampire soap opera that includes interviews with Dan Curtis, Jonathan Frid, David Selby, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker, Jerry Lacy, William F. Nolan, Herman Wouk, Ben Cross, Barbara Steele and Whoopi Goldberg. Ian McShane is the narrator.





STAR WARS---George Lucas explained why Chewbacca did not receive a medal like his companions at the end of the original 1977 movie, "Chewbacca wasn't given a medal because medals don't really mean much to Wookiees. They don't really put too much credence in them. They have different kinds of ceremonies. The Wookiee Chewbacca was in fact given a great prize and honor during a ceremony with his own people. The whole contingent from the Rebel Alliance went to Chewbacca's people and participated in a very large celebration. It was an honor for the entire Wookiee race."





MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL---photo shows aliens from the reboot movie.





SUPERHERO FATIGUE---Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige commented on possible superhero movie fatigue, “Not only has there not been the quote-unquote superhero fatigue that people have been asking me about since years before IRON MAN, but here we are having our biggest year ever. Our instincts have always guided us, and the successes have always just encouraged us to keep following those instincts.”

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE---writer/director Christopher McQuarrie reportedly may bring back Henry Cavill and Alec Baldwin in flashbacks for one or both of the upcoming sequels.

SUSPIRIA---Dario Argento commented on the Luca Guadagino remake of his 1977 cult classic movie, “It did not excite me, it betrayed the spirit of the original film: there is no fear, there is no music. The film has not satisfied me so much.”

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY---Anson Mount, who plays Capt. Christopher Pike on DISCOVERY, met Chris Hunter, son of Jeffrey Hunter, who played Pike on the original series, "Chris Hunter came to Comic Con just to meet me and tell me that his father would've approved and that meant and - I'm almost getting choked up talking about it - that meant so, so, so much. Chris, if you're watching, thank you. I wish you were here. We made sure to introduce him at our panel at Comic Con... That was the most incredible moment."

THE FIRST---Hulu cancelled the series.

THE CROWN---Gillian Anderson will play Margaret Thatcher in Season 4.

BUMBLEBEE---Paramount Pictures is reportedly developing a sequel.

TRIVIA---more James Bond movie trivia.
Michael Caine's wife, Shakira, had a cameo in ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE.

She forgot to add a Russian conspiracy to her argument. Your movie sucks, deal with it and move on with your life.

Jones must not realize that the one she was in cost too much to be profitable at the gross it earned. There's nothing political about it. The studio just wants to milk the cash cow and the last iteration didn't, so they're re-tooling it again. And let's not kid ourselves. The version she was in was a serious re-tool. Were men not good enough? See how idiotic that sounds?

I don't think so. He had a damn love triangle involving characters who he claims to have always written as siblings. He's always talking (and writing) out of his ass.

Yeah it only took him 42 years to answer a question many fans have been asking since the film came out. And yes, he "rewrites" history on the go, always have. #HanShotFirst

Well, it's his creation. He can do what he wishes. If he decides to create a backstory on the whim, that's his prerogative.

I can understand Leslie Jone's perspective, but I don't agree with it. Nor do I think it necessary to oppose this new film.

From folks I know, her Ghostbusters movie was funny. If the next one is as well, that's what counts.

The best thing I can say about the remake is that it doesn't suck as much as Ghostbusters 2, but then that is a pretty low bar. I enjoy Jones quite a bit, but her Ghostbusters film was not the best work of anyone involved. The first Ghostbusters is a genuine classic, and each subsequent film proves why it never should have had a sequel.

Honestly, who cares? The comic adaptation had its own explanation that Chewie got a medal offscreen, and I am sure others have come up with their own explanations. We don't see it on screen, so at best it is something to argue about.

Technically anything he says isn't canon unless Disney says its canon. He gave away the rights. But yeah he can say whatever he wants.

It never bothered me Chewie never got a medal. Clearly the humans "in a galaxy far far away..." are just as prejudice as earthlings are.

Regardless, anything Lucas says is more 'canon' to me than whatever Disney thinks up -- even if I loved the new STAR WARSes.

He's been answering that question for years, since almost the beginning. (I take it you weren't present at the Star Wars 10th Anniversary Celebration when someone brought up that very question and he answered it in the exact same way back in 1987.) 42 Years? Hardly...

She lost me with "dint". Or is that Twitspeak?

He kept the same story for 32 years? That's a first! Still a disingenuous answer for something that was probably just over looked at the time.

Agreed.

At worst, Leia came off as a Wookiephobe - remember the "Walking carpet" slur? She did come around later, though and actually hugged him.
