Sherlock Season 4 to Revolve Around “Consequences”

More Sherlock news, yay.  I posted previously about how there is going to be a stand alone “Christmas special” of sorts that will take place in Victorian England, outside the storyline of the current characters who exist in the present day.  Details about that episode and for the announcement of the start of filming for season 4 (hopefully set for early 2016) can be found here.

Well now in an interview with showrunner Steven Moffat at Entertainment Weekly he leaked a few tidbits of information about season 4 that Sherlock fans can dissect and attempt to interpret.  This first quote places the upcoming season within the overall narrative that he has for the series.

Live Action Mulan next up for the Mouse House

It feels like not too long ago that I was writing about Disney optioning to adapt Dumbo into a live action movie.  At the time I said it was a move that made sense since Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent and Cinderella all did well at the box office.  Even though they already have Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast and Dumbo in the works (and there were rumors of a Little Mermaid that could be directed by Sofia Coppola) reports broke yesterday that a live action version of Mulan could be next.

Faith and Film

There are two things that everyone who knows me quickly picks up on; that I am a Christian and that I love movies (three if you count that I love my wife, but that’s not relevant to this discussion).  People assume that I “see every movie” and it has brought up one particular question with many of my friends: How do I reconcile my love of film with my faith?  There are a lot of bad or inappropriate movies out there, so in order to be a lover of motion pictures I must compromise my convictions, right?  Well, the answer to that question is not a straight-forward yes or no.  I am no authority in the church community, this is only my humble opinion on the subject, but I hope to at least explain my personal stance on watching movies.  This has been written from the perspective of a Christian to other Christians, so if you differ in your beliefs your convictions regarding what is suitable to watch or not watch could be very different from mine.  I welcome discussion about this below.  Also, I prayed before writing this because I wanted to be certain that this is in no way self-serving or a way to justify doing what I want to do.

Spectre Opening Sequence Revealed

If you missed it I posted the first teaser trailer for the latest installment in the Bond franchise, Spectre, yesterday.  This morning additional Spectre information broke, this bit deals with the opening sequence in the film.  Now anyone who has seen a James Bond movie knows that there’s certain components that are almost always present.  One such component that has become a staple is the opening action scene.  If you want to remain spoiler free about what happens in this scene don’t read on beyond this point.

Teaser Trailer for Spectre is Here

It’s here!  I’m not sure why, but with this crazy year of big movies on the horizon; Avengers: AOU, Mission Impossible 5, Jurassic World, Minions, 2 Pixar films, and yes even Star Wars: Force Awakens- I find that I’ve gotten most excited about the next Bond flick, Spectre,  Maybe it’s because Skyfall set into motion a new age of Bond, justifying the existence on spies in a post 9/11 terrorist world.  Perhaps it’s because 2-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is in as a villain (Blofeld?).  Maybe it’s because this new Bond finally has his full team with a new Moneypenny and Q established.  Maybe it’s because Daniel Craig has embodied Bond better than anyone since Connery (yes, I know people will debate their favorite, but I like him).  Regardless of what it might be this movie has me excited before I saw anything more than a few pictures.  Now they finally released the teaser trailer.  Watch below.
