Super Fiesta Sunday

Welcome to the Fiesta... posted on a Friday for the first time in weeks? To be honest though, I was getting pretty used to Saturday Siestas, even if they did seem a bit second rate.

Speaking of second rate, a hilarious meme came about from a picture of Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson raising Roman Reigns' arm at the Royal Rumble. You probably missed it, so I've decided to post some of the better movie related ones.




I haven't asked you anything in two weeks.



  • Box Office News: Sniper continues to set record, and we have our second bomb of the year
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Ted 2, Fantastic Four, and more!
  • In Theaters This Week: Black or White, The Loft, and Project Almanac
  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: John Wick, The Best Of Me, and Ouiji

  • Rebootamania is in the headlines again this week, with the cast of the all-female Ghostbusters being announced. There are also rumors that Disney wants to reboot the Indiana Jones franchise with Chris Pratt
  • The Sony hack might get female actresses a pay raise
  • Suge Knight reportedly killed a man on set yesterday
  • Release Date News! We have planned release dates for Star Wars episodes 8 and 9, and MI:5 has been bumped up to July 31, 2015
  • Is the UK a bad place for minority actors?
  • Emily Blunt passed on multiple Marvel roles
  • M. Night Shyamalan wants a sequel to Unbreakable
  • Netflix's big secret is much more shocking (and disappointing) than you think
  • A movie once thought lost forever will soon have its debut
  • Why does every movie look orange and blue?
  • You can expect to see trailers for these movies if you watch the Super Bowl

    And that brings us to this week's poll.


    Are you happy with the female Ghostbusters cast?
    Yes
    No
    Meh

    Weekend Car Repair Fiesta

    Welcome to the Friday Film Fiesta... on Saturday. My car has been in and out of the shop this week. First it was to have the windows tinted and install a new radio. Then my brakes crap out on me and I had to get it towed to a shop, where it will spend the weekend. When it rains, it pours...

    Last week I asked you nothing.

  • Box Office News: American Sniper sets records for January while we have our first bomb of 2015
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Knock Knock, The Rewrite, and more!

  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: The Book of Life, Fury, and The Judge

  • Remember when you wouldn't be seeing The Interview anywhere? Well now you can see it on Netflix
  • Johnny Depp is apparently at a career crossroads
  • Nicholas Cage will be starring in a Osama bin Laden satire film
  • Coming to X-Men: Apocalypse: young attractive people

    No poll again this week. Enjoy the weekend!

    Friday Funeral Fiesta

    Sorry for the delay and half assed effort this week. My grandma passed away last weekend so I've been traveling all week doing funeral related things and just got home yesterday.

    Last week I asked you if you would be upgrading your film collection to Ultra Blu-Ray, and you said no.

  • Box Office News: Taken 3 TAKES people's money lololol
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Expanse, and more!
  • In Theaters This Week: American Sniper, Blackhat, Paddington, Still Alice, and The Wedding Ringer

  • Tom Hardy has dropped out of Suicide Squad
  • Superhero films are NOT ruining Hollywood, says Paul Thomas Anderson
  • George Lucas will be watching The Force Awakens like a normal person. Am I the only person who wants to see a movie that's just George Lucas sitting in a theater and reacting to the movie?

  • Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan will not be returning for the new X-Men
  • SPOILER ALERT: these trailers spoil movies
  • We should be getting our first look at the Fantastic Four reboot in February. The writer makes a good point, this movie is a blockbuster set to be released in 7 months, and we haven't even seen as much as a logo for it yet. That cannot be good.

    No poll this week. Enjoy your weekend if you have Monday off (in America; enjoy being whatever nationality you are if you aren't American)!

    Two Thousand Fifteen

    Welcome to the first Fiesta of the year 2015! And possibly the last to be posted on RSPWFA2, depending on when we decide to pull the plug on this comatose patient.

    Yes, we skipped last week. But we have enough Canadians posting (or formerly posting) on here that deserve to have a Boxing Day free of copy/pasted movie news and pictures of scantily-clad women!


    Two weeks ago I asked if you thought Sony was right to pull The Interview, and you answered yes. Well weren't we all wrong?!?

  • The new Ghostbusters reboot apparently won't ruin your childhood
  • Sam Raimi on Spider-Man 3: "I messed up plenty"
  • Speaking of Spider-Man, it could have been worse
  • Why you shouldn't see Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which can also be used as a good argument as to why splitting up movies into two parts is stupid. There is a difference between remaining faithful to a book/novel and stretching something out for the sake of money *cough*hobbit*cough*
  • That's SIR John Hurt to you
  • Are you a doofus consumer who bought (or received as a gift) Days of Future Past as a gift this holiday season? You big stupid dummy!

    Late Nights No More

    Welcome to yet another HISTORY MAKING FIESTA! This week is historic because I start a new day shift job on Monday after three years of working graveyard shifts, meaning that this will be the LAST TIME EVER that I write a Fiesta at work at 4:30 in the morning. One of the Queens of the Fiesta is happy.


    Where will the Fiesta go from here, you ask? Will I still be able to write it at work? Will it be written at the last minute on Friday nights? Will it be delayed until Saturday, or even Sunday as it usually is? There's only one way to find out!

    Black Friday Film Fiesta

    I was trying to think of a gimmick for this week's Fiesta and couldn't think of anything not related to Thanksgiving. So I checked the archives to see what I did last year, and it turns out I skipped a Fiesta that week. IN fact, I believe this is the first Black Friday Film Fiesta in HISTORY!
