You can rent an AMC theater for $99 to watch a movie with 19 friends
October 15th, 2020 under Coronavirus, Movies. [ Comments: none ]


Have you been wanting to go to the movies but don’t feel it is safe because of the coronavirus pandemic? Well, AMC has you covered. You can rent a theater to watch one of their select movies with up to 19 of your friends. The best part is most of the films like Empire Strikes Back and Shrek are going for $99 plus tax. Newer movies like The War with Grandpa and Unhinged start at $149.

I forgot to see Jumanji: The Next Level when it was in theaters, and now I can do just that. I just wish they had the offer at Universal City Walk. I would walk over with my neighbors, vote, and then go see the feature. How much fun would that be?

I mean, who hasn’t dreamed of having the theater all to themselves? I have had that happen to me a few times. I have awful taste in movies and never see one the first week it comes out.


Coming 2 America is coming 2 Amazon Prime

Most movie theaters are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. They don’t even know if and when they will open their doors again. Therefore, Bill & Ted: Face the Music, and Mulan skipped the theaters and opted to stream online. Now, Coming 2 America is doing the same thing.

The long-awaited and anticipated sequel will begin streaming on Amazon Prime, most likely on December 18th, according to Variety. The movie stars Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Tracy Morgan, and Jermaine Fowler.

I bet if it does well, then Wonder Woman: 1984 and James Bond: No Time to Die will probably skip the big screen too. Would you watch these movies from the comfort of your home, or do you have to see the movies at the movies??


Saturday Night Live does more to get people to wear masks than the White House
October 7th, 2020 under Coronavirus, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: none ]

Morgan Wellan was supposed to be performing on Saturday Night Live this week, but today they pulled the offer. The Country singer was seen partying over the weekend without a mask and kissing strangers on TikTok. That is something you can’t do during the coronavirus pandemic; and then expect to work on a set.

Wellan, from his hotel room in NYC, recorded a message of apology for his fans. “I respect the show’s decision because I know I put them in jeopardy, and I take ownership for this. I’d like to apologize to SNL, to my fans, to my team for bringing me these opportunities, and I let them down,” he said.

The musician realizes he screwed up big time. “I think I have some growing up to do. I think I lost myself a little bit. I tried to find joy in the wrong places and, I don’t know, it’s left me with less joy, so I’m going to try to work on that. I’m going to take a step back from the spotlight for a little while and go work on myself.” Then he added, “I wish I could have made country music and my fans proud this Saturday, but I respect the decision once again.”

As of today, he has not tested positive for COVID-19, but the damage has been done.

Can you imagine if DC was this tough on people who didn’t wear masks? Then maybe the president and his lackeys would not have coronavirus. Not only that, maybe we would not have cases spiraling out of control all over the country. Strange concept.

When it comes to his replacement, Variety says, as of now, they do not have one. Hopefully, they will go with Bon Jovi, who just released an album and live close to the city.


Jurassic World: Dominion halts production over false positives

COVID-19 is not afraid of dinosaurs. How do I know that? Colin Trevorrow, the director of the Jurassic Park movie that is currently filming, tweeted that his movie has to take a mandatory two-week vacation. He wrote, “Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon.”

Good thing the film’s release date was pushed back a year from next summer to June 10, 2022. That gives them an extra year in case they have to take any more staycations.

On that note, isn’t it crazy that Hollywood does a better job of testing than DC? Not only that, they actually protect their workers if they think someone has the virus. Strange concept.


Chicago Med shut down for a medical reason, COVID-19

The cast and crew of Chicago Med were all ready to go to work today, but instead, they are on a two-week break. That is because a crew member, who was in close proximity to the cast and crew, tested positive for COVID-19. Deadline reports this is the second person to test positive for coronavirus. The other person got the results on September 24th.

They are not the only show who is on a pandemic break, so are several series that film in Vancouver, according to Deadline. Riverdale, A Million Little Things, Charmed, Batwoman, The Mighty Ducks, Nancy Drew, and Maid, have been on pause for the last several days. Not because someone tested positive. It is because they are waiting for the test results to come back. The delay of the test results is delaying the start of production for Supergirl, Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

The only show that does not have to worry about any of this is Supernatural. They already wrapped production.
