Literally anytime Keanu or Alex or Chris or Ed would say anything about Bill and Ted 3 there would just be this little explosion of interest on the internet, kind of culminating to the point where finally Orion and MGM decided, ‘Yeah we’re gonna do this’. We announced that it was possible and there was a huge explosion of interest, and I have to say that made [the studios] feel like, ‘Well, I guess we made a good decision here.’

In a separate interview, producer Scott Kroopf – who’s been a producer on all three movies – said fan interest also went a long way towards convincing the studio that Bill and Ted 3 was worth making.

Whenever a fool opens their dumb mouth to say Zack Snyder’s Justice League was unprecedented to giving in to the fan boys. It’s how it’s always been done.

#TrailerAlert: The Doorman is off-brand Die Hard.

Ruby Rose is not John McClane. I’d be foolish to accept this.

If I was on a long flight I’d watch it but I’m so not investing any money in it: showing this the door.

Girth Radio Presents…

This week has lots of excellent TV recommendations we just sadly end on a somber note with a Chadwick Boseman movie. I mean that whole thing is strange.  Thankfully there’s lots of tv to distract and help process that.

Girth Radio Presents…

Though I do not mention it; there are as always NBA Playoffs games unfolding every night. However, I wisely realized that if that’s all I wrote for each day I’d alienate my readers. That’s what the puns are for! Plus it turns out there is TV to watch on other channels.

Bruce Lee For The Win!

What [he] does not know: The virus doesn’t herald the end of the world, or of the United States, or even of the commonwealth of Massachusetts. In the coming days, conditions will continue to deteriorate. Emergency services and other public safety nets will be stretched to their breaking point, exacerbated by the wily antagonists of fear, panic, misinformation; a myopic, sluggish federal bureaucracy further hamstrung by a president unwilling and woefully unequipped to make the rational, science-based decisions necessary; and exacerbated, of course, by plain old individual everyday evil. But there will be many heroes, too, including ones who don’t view themselves as such.

Today is DC Fandome!

The festivities begin at 1pm EST. (Team EST!!).

Because a large chunk of nerd shindig is so movie-centric (Wonder Woman! The Flash! The Batman! The Suicide Squad! Black Adam!) this feels like a full-court press.

MCU is (literally) on pause so this is the best window for DC Films to strike.
Will this work?
  
What does success look like for DC Films (and no not in comparison to Marvel Movies.).

Let’s do this thing! Attached is some of the schedule; here’s the rest.

#TrailerAlert: August 17, 2020

Amazon release this trailer for this documentary on voting and voter suppression in America this afternoon.

Americans are addicted to “vote!!” as an effective solution but voting has no value if the candidates are lousy. When the system forces voters to choose between Trump or Hillary it’s not clearly not good; it’s clearly not working.

You’re really honestly telling me those are the 2 best choices to represent 300 million people?!

The way the candidates are selected (in America and in Canada); the way we present them…the media all of that needs to be overhauled. In everything else we can research reviews…from cities we’re flying to; to a washer…to a book…there are reviews and opinions and recommendations and suggestions so people can avoid mistakes or bad choices. We don’t really do that properly with political candidates.

The debate used to be can you do more good outside the system or should you get elected and attempt to change the system from within. Now it’s obvious no good comes from within the system.

So yeah voter suppression is a major issue and yes it is racist but if the choices suck that’s not good either. So I hope this doc addresses some/all of that.

All In: The Fight For Democracy is on Amazon Prime on September 18. I’m In! I’ll make some tea and chill with this.

People think it’s the census or something…who cares? Funny is the world that I live in. You’re funny – I’m interested. You’re not funny – I’m not interested. I have no interest in gender or race or anything like that, but everyone else is kind of with their little calculating – ‘Is this the exact right mix?’ – to me, it’s anti-comedy, it’s more about PC nonsense than ‘Are you making us laugh or not?
