Sincere apologies for the brief hiatus. Life got a bit hectic around the end of June and beginning of July. And a friendly reminder that this news only covers the week prior and I'm aware that there's a good bit of important news from previous weeks that is not covered here.

Pixar also announced that they will be making Finding Nemo 3, in which Martin has to track down where child services took Nemo after he was charged with negligence for losing his child twice.

A Sons of Anarchy prequel could be awesome. I'm shocked that the show got no love from the Emmys.

Love the Newsroom because of the cast. I think it's a great little show so far, only on episode two.

Stoked Wes Anderson's new film has a title now! I'm looking forward to this movie, because it will be interesting to see Depp in an Anderson film.

I'm so sick of people on here throwing out generic statements with nothing to back them up. Sure, people can say they don't like something, or that they love something,
but you better have a reason for it or you're gonna look like a whining idiot or a fanboy.

Explain, don't just state.

This isn't really directed at you, just something I've seen copious amounts of on here. People need to explain what they state, and think better.

Are you questioning the anticipation behind "The Master"?

Nope - just wanted the poster to further explain his stance for all 3 items - and anyone else for that matter.

1. Toy Story 3 is in my top 5 favorite movies of all time and I love Finding Nemo as much as the next guy. Here's the thing, Pixar is filled to the brim with creative geniuses whom I believe are being wasted on sequels. Not that FN 2 wont be a good movie, it probably will be, but there are most likely some original, mind blowing ideas that are being passed over in favor of established hits. Add this to the fact that FN in no way, shape, or form, needs a sequel. The original is such a gem that I would hate to see it's legacy tarnished with a money grabbing sequel.

2. The Newsroom had me excited. It could have been an exciting look at the news media. Instead we got Heres What Aaron Sorkin Thinks About (Insert Issue). Its like the West Wing but without good, nuanced characters.

3. The clips released so far. The fact that Juaquin Phoenix is back. The fact that PS Hoffman is in it. PT Anderson. The fact that it explores scientology.The fact that Jonny Greenwood is scoring. Plus, I didn't say it would be my movie of the year, I said it would probably be, and I stand by that.
