Brad Pitt emoting in space > George Clooney dying in space (and I REALLY enjoyed watching Clooney die in space!).  Best Brad’s been in years!!!!  Maybe cause he did less talking… and more emoting!

Also, why make a space movie where you only go to the moon or Mars or Neptune, when you can make a movie where you go to ALL THREE!!!  But no love for Uranus?

But why did you have to include a Subway Sandwich shop at the moon spaceport?  I thought in the future people would be smarter and stop eating Subway cause it sucks, and especially cause their lettuce is shredded newspaper

But way to reuse Space Cowboy stuff!!!  If only they could have figured out a way to reuse Tommy Lee Jones Clay Shaw JFGay stuff!!!

THEY GAVE US SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT!

But where was the sweatband Mark??? 

And how the funk have you never played ‘Storybook Love‘ live in concert, and even if you never did, how could you NOT break it out on the VERY anniversary of the release date of The Princess Bride????  I mean, you can play whatever you want to play (c’mon, ‘Bacon Roll’??), but there are missed opportunities and then there are REALLY missed opportunities!!  YOU MISSED IT!!! And where was Sting?  Or all the sports highlights paired to your ‘Walk of Life’, which wasn’t even worthy of playing??

Better Off Zed

The Lost City of Z
Hunnam Beef Cake

PG-13 | 141 min

We all have boners for Indiana Jones.  But what if I told you that there was a real Indiana Jones, but he didn’t necessarily find what he was looking for?  You probably have at least a halfie right now, right?  Left?

Well, there was once a British bloke named Percy Fawcett, who became obsessed with finding a lost city in the dense Amazonian jungles, in the early 20th Century.  He was like a (then) modern day conquistador, a dashing Don Quixote, tilting at windmills for something that may not even exist.  He tried again and again to find a lost city he called ‘Z’, before ultimately disappearing for good in his final attempt.  SPOILER ALERT!!!  But nothing can be spoiled by true facts…  facts spelled out in author David Grann‘s MOS eggsalad New Yorker article/turned book about Fawcett and his life’s yearning mission of discovery, which has now been transformed into a grand motion picture written and directed by James Gray – The Lost City of Z

Now before you get all excited to grab a whip and get a crackin’, you must know that Fawcett’s adventure isn’t even close to being on the level of anything that the great Dr Jones accomplished.  You would think that WOULD be the case by looking at the image above, but that’s just one tiny part.  When not dodging the natives, Fawcett and company are kept busy by chopping dense trees in the jungle, attracting diseases, losing supplies, and being away from family (his are played by Sienna Miller and Tom Holland) for years, but yet, never losing hope of finding Z

And we don’t lose hope in Fawcett or his convictions and dreams either, cause he flows so well in the acting body of Charlie Hunnam.  I haven’t seen Sons of Anarchy or anything else he’s been in (although apparently he was in Children of Men), so he’s all new to me.  Oh man, I now LOVES ME SOME HUNNAM BEEF!!!!  He’s like an equally as gruff/less obnoxious/easier to understand Tom Hardy!  He’s like Brad Pitt, but he can actually act!  I know we’re half-ish way through the cinematic year, but it’s gonna be tough for anyone to top the Indiana Jonesing hard-on I have for Charlie as Percy.  Man o man!  BREAST IN SHOW ACTING!!  Hunnam as Fawcett – my cup runneth over!!!

But like I said, you may be put off by a movie about discovery that actually doesn’t really discover anything, but you will at least discover how incredible Charlie Hunnam (and his mustache) is (and how Robert Pattinson is also pretty darn good too… looking like Fagin from Oliver Twist)

I hope you found what you were looking for Percy, and are still chilling in Z!  Z’s nuts!
