Varietymore 'sequels we don't need!' news.Boss Babyis getting one for 2021.Sigh.I actually thought that movie was unexpectedly good but most movies don't actually need sequels.Stop trying to make movies into big TV shows with multiple episodes!TV is great but Movies are not TV!

I Wouldn't Normally Link This But...
Life Site,which appears to be some sort of Christian Fundamentalist Anti-Choice website,has a piece on theAlienfranchise that I found gripping and nutjob funny (Satan is the screenwriter ofAlien Covenant!) and also kinda justified on a couple of intriguing points.Thanks to IndieWire for pointing it out.

AN -- i got really distracted by Cannes and some life issues but they'll be back soon

Was Efron competing with the Rock on who can look more super human?The article on "Alien"does raise some interesting points

Buff+shirtless=Zac Efron in movies.

Jaragon -- the strangest thing about is is the movie goes to great lengths to point out that he's like one of the all time great Olympic swimmers.Sorry but that body would never fly through water.No olympic swimmers have ever looked like that,at least not any of the ones who swam well enough to medal.That is not muscles designed to make you fast in water.That's muscles designed to make you look huge/bulky on dry land.

Nathaniel: Zac looks more like a wrestler or gay film actor than a swimmer who are usually leaner- not enough Zac fans to make the movie a hit.It can be worst than "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates"
