Before Sony rebooted “Spider-Man” back in 2012 Sam Raimi was in the process of making another sequel with Tobey Maguire and company. But for various reasons, Raimi and Sony parted ways on the project and Sony decided to reboot the property with Marc Webb as director and Andrew Garfield starring in the titular role. I found that reboot to be much less enjoyable than the Raimi versions. And the sequel to the reboot, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” was just “Batman and Robin” bad and almost a franchise killer.
Back during the first season, the show produced a twelve minuted episode entitled “Uncle Sam Malone” for the U.S. treasury in order to sell U.S. savings bonds. It never aired on television or appeared on the 1st season DVD set. It was only ever played at savings bonds drives. But you can now view the episode below.
“Cheers”, which ran on NBC from 1982-1993, is considered to be one of the best sitcoms in television history. The show centers around ex-baseball player and recovering alcoholic Sam Malone (Ted Danson) who runs a Boston Sports bar. The first five seasons focused on his on-again, off-again romance with intellectual snob Diane Chambers (Shelley Long), a waitress at the bar. The remaining six seasons focused upon Sam’s friendship with new bar manager Rebecca Howe (Kirstie Alley) and gave the other wacky characters that populated the bar more to do.

Disney/Lucasfilm have released the first trailer for the first “Star Wars” stand-alone film entitled “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” What’s it about you ask? It was all in the opening crawl of “Star Wars: A New Hope.”
Most are dramatic scenes between each of the characters, but we do have one fun action scene between Batman and Superman.
Set a decade after “Days of Future Past” this new entry has our favorite mutants take on the god-like mutant Apocalypse whose goal is to destroy mankind. Now I’m always wondering, why do these superpower beings always want to destroy the world? When I hear that, this clip always comes to mind.
I’ve seen all of the movies and read a couple of the books. All I can say is ‘Wow.’ I really had a good time there. I haven’t been to the one in Orlando, but have caught some of the videos on YouTube. But nothing beats the ‘in-person’ experience. They really outdid themselves. The architecture is just fantastic and it really does feel as if you are walking along the streets of Hogsmeade and exploring Hogwarts. It’s as if you stepped right into the film.
