Why is Sylvester Stallone thankful for Rocky, more than four decades later? Part of the love, and the allure, rests in the character’s time-tested ability to keep appealing to fans. Most importantly to Stallone, though, is that he believes Rocky Balboa best represents himself, the actor, as a human. Rocky is a personal creation of Stallone’s, so their mission statements remain forever intertwined. It’s not like Sean Connery with James Bond. The 007 agent was a creation of Ian Fleming, and Connery just inherited the role. Stallone made Rocky. Rocky made Stallone. They basically don’t exist without one another, and Stallone recognizes that. It’s a wonderful thing for which to be thankful.
Only owning five Star Wars movies surely means that the tweeter above only has the original trilogy, The Force Awakens, and (the best Star Wars movie ever) The Last Jedi in their collection, right? I mean, what’s the other option; the entire prequel trilogy, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Solo: A Star Wars Story? Whatever configuration that user seems to believe in, it’s different from our next contestant, who will no longer allow you to put Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker down on the internet:
While chatting with GQ, as part of his Icon of the Year profile, Clooney engaged in his trademark candor and self-reflection when bringing up the subject of Batman & Robin. His insights, though simple, were not only limited to his performance, as they also picked apart more of what made the fourth Batman film at Warner Bros. the turkey everyone loves to carve from now and again. Citing honesty as his personal policy, George Clooney explains his relationship with the movie’s quality, noting,
What if I were to tell you that one time at a movie theater in St Louis, Missouri, I ordered a hot dog from maybe the highest person ever to successfully show up for a work shift? His eyes looked like blood moons, and he was smirking like he just lied to his mom and got away with it. He couldn’t find the buns so he went into the back and brought out a frozen package, opened it, snagged one and dropped my cooked hot dog inside. When I pointed out it was, uh, frozen, he said, “It seemed cold,” then dumped the hot dog out into a makeshift to-go container, warmed the bun up for what felt like 5 minutes on high and handed it to me. Like I had the bun in one hand and then a to-go container with just a loose hot dog in the other. I should have just taken the frozen bun. What if.
As such, we figured we’d round up some of our favorite deals we’ve spotted. Some would make great Christmas presents for a special person in your life, or even better, all would make great gifts for yourself right now. You’ve earned it maybe.
We’ve gone ahead and dropped in links to the various products, along with reasons why we’re into it and in some cases, marginally witty comments because we need approval and can’t help ourselves. If you see something you’re interested in, go check it out. We pick up a little referral money in the process, and you get something cool at an artificially low price. To quote Clue, what could be more American than that?
For reasons that aren’t immediately clear, there is a nice long history of meta/self-referential humor in LEGO animation, and, as recognized by Kelly Marie Tran, that is a tradition upheld in the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special. Not only are there some jabs taken at The Travesty From 1978, but also many moments throughout Star Wars history (which comes easy thanks to time travel being a big part of the plot).

Is Tenet On Netflix?
One of the biggest questions surrounding the streaming release of any movie always centers around Netflix, specifically when any given movie will be available on one of the biggest and most popular digital platforms out there. The truth of the matter is no one really knows at this point when, or even if, Tenet will find its way to Netflix. Right now, Christopher Nolan’s movies are found on streaming services like Amazon, Hulu, HBO Max, and a few others, but they often find their way onto Netflix. But with Warner Bros. trying to get as many eyes on the 2020 time-bending spy thriller and also wanting more HBO Max subscribers, the movie could end up there before anywhere else.
If you’re ever traveling outside of the country and would like to access your regular Netflix queue, you can do so using a VPN.
There are war movies and then there is 1917, Sam Mendes’ Oscar-winning epic about two young British soldiers sent into No Man’s Land to deliver a message that could potentially save thousands of lives, or cost them if they fail. And as intense as a cinematic experience the film ended up being, some of the behind-the-scenes facts about how it all came together are just as, if not more, insane than what we saw in the final cut.
From the decision to present the film as a continuous one-shot that only breaks from the action for a specific reason to the way the production team had to secure a license to possibly exhume bodies while filming to the meaningful story behind the narrative, there’s a lot to unpack regarding 1917, so let’s not waste any more time and get this thing going.
