What Up Yo.

The Walking Dead

Neegan- Jeffrey Dean Morgan has gotten the role he deserves finally. 

Conserve the bullets guys!!

We love Ezekiel and Carol there exchanges

Their relationship she is the one woman who would call him out and when she smiles and gives her support him we smile

In Ezekiel we trust

I think he’s going to die

If you kill Carol prepare for the riot Kirkman

CARL!!!!!!

COOORL!!!!!

Andrew  Lincoln, Rick from The Walking Dead,  is British. apparently pronouncing Carl, his sons name in the show... is an ongoing behind-the-scenes source of hysterics for the cast and crew

THE WITCH see it!!!!!!!

The death of the movie theater experience

 

Groundbreaking entertainment premiering on streaming networks people when given the choice stay home more and more

Vice Principal’s

Walton Goggins and Danny McBride have knocked it out of the park with this HBO series that is in my opinion the funniest thing I’ve seen come out of HBO in a long time

Goggins is a master. From The Hateful Eight to Sons of Anarchy to Justified to Vice Principals, his range is exceptional.

 

Martin Scorsese & The Irishman

 

The Irishman (2019 film) - Wikipedia

The Irishman is an upcoming American biographical crime film directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Steven Zaillian, based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran and the Inside Story of the Mafia, the Teamsters, and the Final Ride by Jimmy Hoffa by Charles Brandt.

The Irishman (2018)

Directed by Martin Scorsese. With Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Anna Paquin, Bobby Cannavale. A mob hit man recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.

Scorsese's The Irishman May Not Get Theatrical Release

Netflix reportedly is not yet willing to commit to giving Martin Scorsese's gangster saga The Irishman a theatrical release.

 

 

 

I’ve been following the story for five years now.

The Irishman is slated to be the return of Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese.

But it doesn’t end there.

This cast includes Harvey Keitel Joe Pesci Al Pacino Bobby Carnaval Ray Romano

STEPHEN FUCKING GRAHM!!!!!

This is a Martin Scorsese fans wet dream.

While it had been rumored to be filming for a while or we could do with sit back and wait hoping it would come to fruition because there’s many a film director will says

“it’s a miracle any movies ever get made.  Ever. “

So many moving parts must align to create the perfect storm which makes bringing a film to reality, fully realizing a film possible.

Based on the novel “I heard you paint houses”,  This is the story of the Irishman I hitman who tells you the story of his life through multiple flashbacks and ultimately his role in the killing of Jimmy Hoffa.

And while to us cinephiles, this seems like an easy film to greenlight, The films financier backed out leaving the $125 million film without money to complete

This is were Netflix steps in

And what you have is Netflix saving the day by buying the rights to the film picking up the tab and allowing the king and the king to reunite again.

Rumor has it that there will be theatrical distribution on the same day as video on demand distribution.

This leaves me with very mixed feelings as it’s Martin Scorsese getting Robert De Niro returning to work together again after a hiatus of 22 years

It will be a true testament and sign of the times to see how the Irishman performs the release is scheduled for 2019.

I Wes have a lot to say when I learn about all of this as Oldboy tells me the story of how he is sitting in the diner where the film is set to be shooting in the next week or so thus beginning the conversation.
