This past weekend,I didn’t attend Las Vegas’ Wizard World debut event mainly because of both their Creation Entertainment-esque expensive prices(on celebrity autographs and photo ops) and that Paige(the person who I really wanted to meet the most) wasn’t there. Like the adult porn/fetish industry scene,I’m also losing my passion for genre related activity that’s been partially ruined by the 21st. Century fanboys(amid many of the majorly shitty genre films that have been made for the last 15 years),who are so damn snarky,rude,and very brownnosing upon every oncoming shitty genre film(whether it be big budgeted or low budgeted) that comes along the way. Are they thinking that they’re going to be handsomely paid for their asskissing efforts(which they surely won’t be),for they certainly do act that way.
Speaking of which, Robert Downey Jr. was doing his AVENGERS sequel promotional claptrap press tour in England when he got offended by questions about his private life and his past drug problems and political stances(that he once proudly attained in the 90s) from Martin Bashire-esque interviewer Krishnan What’s-His-Face(I can’t remember his last name,since everyone’s 15 Minutes Of Fame always goes so damn quick) and quickly walked off the set, for whatever happened to giving hilarious “Snappy Aanswers To Stupid Questions”(as set by Mad magazine long ago) ?! Does every celebrity of the last 30 to 40 years always have to throw a hissy fit(like Quentin Tarantino did when Krishnan asked him if movie violence begans the world’s modern violence[which it actually doesn’t]) and get violent toward the paparazzi like Alec Baldwin,for it’s just sheer ridiculousness to me since a majority of those stars(of the last 30 to 40 years) can’t quite match up there with the glorious stars of the past(and mightily lack that unique aura that they had),for Robert Downey Jr. seems to be much more interested in being the $50 Million Dollar Man(via the success of both the IRON MAN films and THE AVENGERS,as well as that upcoming claptrap sequel),for he must really be saving those special personal questions for that mega bucks paying future Diane Sawyer interview,since she won’t be asking him about why he participated in the(largely forgotten) 1996 Straight-To-VHS video actioner DANGER ZONE.
And also speaking of which,the recent tragic Nepal earthquake(that claimed thousands of lives)was largely ignored for the news of the upcoming AVENGERS sequel,how much more money FURIOUS 7 made,and Bruce Jenner appearing on Diane Sawyer’s interview show revealing about his gender change(from male to female),which I can side with him on since living for so long with that narcissistic megalomaniac millionairess Kris Kardashian can do that to a guy.
On to better things(of the cinema genre/fanboy universe kind): the pissing and moaning ,grumbling and complaining fanboys aren’t so happy with Jared Leto’s Joker look for SUICIDE SQUAD,saying that he looks too Marilyn Manson-esque. I can easily overlook that factor,since both Jack Nicholson and Mark Hamill are too old,Heath Ledger(with his Crow-esque Joker look) is dead,Javier Bardem won’t do comic book characters,and Tom Hardy wasn’t considered for the Joker role(since a Hardy Joker would have easily knocked it out of both the park and the universe). I’ve got some high respect for Oscar winner Leto,since he’s been slowly revealing how his Joker will be and what to expect from him in SUICIDE SQUAD,for if all goes well Leto’s Joker might even cameo in (the very dark and downbeat looking[from the way the teaser trailer portrays it as]BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN:DAWN OF JUSTICE).
And before I go,I’ve noticed that the AOL Entertainment section was covering on Jon “Bones” Jones’ current problems(that might land him in jail),for I thought that UFC/MMA was supposed to be a “real” sporting event,for the UFC’s head honcho Dana White has really let me down. BTW:hardcore UFC/MMA fans(who are strongly anti-wrestling),I’m just only being tongue-in-cheek,since I’ve been watching and following UFC/MMA since the very debut of UFC 1(way back in 1993).
See ‘ya all in May(unless something happens that pulls me back in)…
