QI’RA: Chapter Forty-Seven

A Tremor in the Force

Maul was standing on the edge of a cliff. His form was hunched as his leg bled profusely. In his right hand, he clutched his double-bladed lightsaber tightly, awaiting his opponent’s next attack. His breaths were ragged as he saw her approaching; a woman cloaked in darkness with a strange sword in her hand coated with his own blood.

I’m Recasting The Alfred Hitchcock Movies: Part 1

If you’ve been reading my blog you may know that I am an Alfred Hitchcock fan. His movies are top-notch, his directorial vision is stellar, and he’s simply an inspiration. Being the Alfred Hitchcock fan that I am I decided to do something really fun; recast his most iconic films with current Hollywood stars that would be great fits for these movies.

Just think about TENET, a film that was on many peoples’ highly-anticipated lists this year and even that movie was only able to make just north of $350 million and only $55 million domestically. That’s not nearly good enough to enthuse production companies to let their films enter theaters this year, hence all of the delays, but we’ve gotten ourselves a Christmas miracle.

It seems that Warner Bros. has come to an agreement; Wonder Woman 1984 will play in theaters but it will also stream on HBO Max for no additional cost to subscribers on Christmas Day. I know what the heck I’m doing then!

I’m sitting at home with a cup of hot cocoa on a beautiful, crisp Christmas morning and turning on Wonder Woman 1984 to start the day. Woo! Thank you, Warner Bros.
