It looks like there isn’t going to be any change. It is still going to be a long time gone. Kim Jong Un is going for another 60 years of misery for his subjects. Nothing to envy. It will be a continuing disaster, hundreds of thousand malnourish for whole lives and generations to come. Far worse than 1984.
Jackman and Co. will be trying to seperate itself from the flop that was X-men Origins: Wolverine, a blunder that even got a good Magneto project cancelled. Director James Mangold is relatively unknown, but Jackman seems pretty pumped about going in depth with his favorite beserker. Let’s do the same.
Shortly after trashing it’s first script, Justice League has been given new life as rumor has it Christian Bale is in talks to reprise his role as The Dark Knight in a JLA film. Similar rumors dictate that Christopher Nolan has been named “godfather” of the entire DCU at WB Studios. While both news stories are rumors and should be taken lightly, Justice League is looking a lot better than it was a couple weeks ago.
Meanwhile, a source claiming to have seen an early screening of Man of Steel is claiming that it is “the best movie of the year”. Which let’s be honest is pretty stupid because it’s only March, and the movie isn’t even out yet. Nevertheless, many think a Superman/Batman film starring Bale/Cavill is the most effective segway into an ensemble Justice League film. And they make some pretty good points. Why do Superman and Batman make such a powerful dynamic duo? Because an Artisan/Guardian symbiosis is a powerful thing. Let’s take a look.
V is for Victory.
V was for Hope.
V said “Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.”
And They didn’t.
He had told them the first day they met. “We are going to win a National Championship.”
They failed for two years, and time was running out, most of them were seniors in college. Last chance.
They won when nobody had given them a chance.
It is a popular Western view to say Crisis in Chinese is a simple combination of danger and opportunity. But that is not exactly correct. It’s a little more complicated.
Chinese philologist Victor H. Mair of the University of Pennsylvania calls the popular interpretation of wēijī in the English-speaking world a “widespread public misperception.” Mair suggests that jī in wēijī is closer to “crucial point” than to “opportunity.”
Nevertheless, They can relate to either interpretation.
They struggled much of their young lives, very close to danger and no opportunity before the crucial point — when the opportunity was encountered and made, by hard work and being very smart TOGETHER.
The Danger has passed. Now, China is the land of Opportunity for those who have the right combination and the right timing — and…

For those of you who do not know, Game of Thrones is an HBO series in it’s third season based off a series of popular fantasy novels entitled “A Song of Ice and Fire”. Thrones chronicles the violent conflicts and struggles between noble families vying for control of the ‘Iron Throne’. The unprecedented genre series focuses primarily on political and military strife between four major powers: House Lannister, House Baratheon, House Stark, and House Targaryen. Just like the real four major powers or Temperaments, these ones certainly have their differences. Let’s take a look.
I’ve now heard from multiple sources that the Will Beall script for Justice League has been scrapped. The story from each source is the same: it’s terrible. Some sources seem to think the whole movie is going to fall apart and never happen, while some believe that Warner Bros will keep moving forward, unwilling to lose the superhero arms race.
WHOOPSY DAISIES. I’m not a mathematician or anything but aren’t they already LOSING the “superhero arms race”?
While these superhero teams may be fictional, they express an extremely important idea: that people are fundamentally different from one another, and that that is a GOOD thing. Let’s take a look.
Awards and Flu Seasons have commenced as the 2013 Golden Globes gave Bostonian Ben Affleck a pretty phatty sack including Best Director and Best Picture. Daniel Day Lewis got best actor which let’s be honest isn’t very surprising to anyone. So wash your hands and eat oranges as Oscar night approaches on February 24th. Speaking of Oscar potential Star Wars Episode VII has officially hired director J.J. Abrams to helm the film. The young director just finished his second Star Trek film and took the job reportedly after months of being courted by new Lucasfilm CEO Kathleen Kennedy. Abrams even publicly announced that he would NOT direct the film, which evidently he was just flat out lying about. What a SILLY GOOSE! Some would say. Abrams’ credits include Star Trek and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, having also written and produced big name stuff like Lost and Alias. Regardless, Disney’s newest branch seems pretty pumped to have him;
It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy in a press release Jan. 25. “J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”
Star Wars creator George Lucas also gave his blessing to the selection of Abrams. “I’ve consistently been impressed with J.J. as a filmmaker and storyteller,” said Lucas. “He’s an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film and the legacy couldn’t be in better hands.
