TOP NEWS STORIES: 

-The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer released online to a slew of excitement and speculation as to what it all means. Where’s Luke? Why are the events of the old films now merely folklore? Who is Kylo Ren really? Etc… If you haven’t watched it to assuage your cynicism of the new series, do it.

-Wes Anderson has also announced his next film, a stop-motion comedy focusing on a quartet of dogs, some of which are voiced by Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, and Bryan Cranston

 

ACTOR IN FOCUS…BEST AND WORST OF VIN DIESEL

Note: I did not count his part in Saving Private Ryan nor his voice acting in The Iron Giant or Guardians of the Galaxy, but all are great.

Best: His role as Dominic Toretto in Fast and the Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, and Furious 7

Honorable Mentions: Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick, and Riddick as Richard Riddick, and his roles in Find Me Guilty and Boiler Room

Worst: The Pacifier, this movie SUCKS

Honorable Mentions: Babylon AD, and A Man Apart
