But I’m really going to miss films like Petulia, Bullitt and The Conversation, which belong to urbane San Francisco in “Northern California.” And I’m wondering if we can’t cut a deal for Dirty Harry. Maybe swap at least one of the series for Play Misty For Me, which, with Clint Eastwood, sits on this side of the line, up in Monterey County. … [Read more...] about California Split: Who Would Get Custody Of The Golden State Movies If Ballot Measure Passes?
Since Shelley’s death, guitarist Steve Diggle has taken over lead vocal duties, and “Gotta Get Better” is actually a reworking of a solo track Diggle released back in 2014. In the Buzzcocks’ hands, “Gotta Get Better” is a nice bit of power-pop that finds Diggle driving home the song’s titular affirmation over a blast of guitars and breakneck drums. The song even boasts an expertly executed false ending that leads perfectly into Diggle’s closing guitar solo. … [Read more...] about Buzzcocks Unveil First New Music Since Death of Pete Shelley
While this news that Joss Whedon was leaving Batgirl isn't true right now, this report does add that "things could change," since directors leave projects in development all the time. Still, even if he does stay aboard throughout production, there are already a large cross-section of DC fans who would be more than happy to kick him off this movie, after a recent social media snafu. Shortly before Justice League opened last weekend, Joss Whedon came under fire after it was revealed that he liked a tweet bashing the Justice League villain Steppenwolf, claiming he was the "worst comic book movie villain of all time." There were even some fans who responded to this by suggesting he should be taken off of Batgirl, but it seems that won't happen quite yet. … [Read more...] about Joss Whedon Is Still Directing Batgirl, But That Could Change

However, for now, the MCU gig is just a rumor for the time being. Kevin Feige will be the one to announce the news at Marvel Studios' first time back in Comic-Con since 2017. Excitement is already high and building with the recent success of Spider-Man: Far From Home and the absolutely massive Avengers: Endgame, which has a real shot becoming the highest grossing movie of all time in the near future. Perhaps Comic-Con will give the movie the extra push it needs to take down James Cameron's Avatar.

The Eagles opened the evening without an introduction. The lights lowered, and they began with an a cappella version of “Seven Bridges Road,” quickly adding instruments and swinging into “Take It Easy.” They were fierce and joyful, playing with all the piss and vinegar of a young band hitting its early stride. I slipped backstage with my photographer friend from high school, Gary Elam, and asked their road manager if I could interview the band. They were eager to talk. Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner all hung out in a tiny dressing room and spent hours detailing their history and their dreams of hitting the big-time. “If you like us, you should check out our friend Jackson Browne and John David Souther,” Glenn Frey said excitedly, clutching a long-neck Budweiser. They posed for a photo by the amps, arms around each other, and we exchanged phone numbers. I stayed in touch with them.
