Another Delayed Fiesta

Welcome to the RETURN of the Fiesta!

Unfortunately there was no column last week, as yours truly was asked to fly out to Hollywood to be a seat filler for the Oscars. As you can imagine, it ended with hilarious results!

Two weeks ago, I asked... yeah let's never speak of that failed gimmick ever again.

  • Box Office News: Two weeks ago, movie seats were flooded with... nah, not gonna go there. Last weekend, an inspirational movie beats out a movie about "fat and ugly" teenagers and a movie about hot tubs!
  • In Theaters This Week: Focus and The Lazarus Effect
  • Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Foxcatcher and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

  • RIP Leonard Nimoy
  • For those who missed the show like me, here are the results of the Oscars. We also have results of this year's Razzies.
  • Sequelmania is running wild this week, as news has come out that Harrison Ford will be returning for a sequel to Blade Runner. Another franchise getting a sequel will be Alien, and rumor is that this sequel will cancel out some of the crappier sequels from the franchise. We are also apparently getting (or might have already gotten) a sequel to MacGruber
  • Coming soon to theaters: Adventure Time
  • Also coming soon: A movie where Leo plays every character
  • Neill Blomkamp wants to "re-do" Elysium
  • One movie avoiding Sequelmania is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
  • Here is a list of what is both coming to and leaving Netflix in March
  • Not to be outdone by Disney and Star Wars, a theme park based on Lord of the Rings will soon be a reality
  • Movie theaters are still screwing up

    No poll this week as I have been turned on to House of Cards, and my TV has decided it would rather distort sound, so I'm off to fix that. See you next Friday! Or Saturday. Or Sunday. Or...

    In honor of the new Spongebob Movie coming out today (and the leftover theme from the Super Bowl where Street Sharks danced with Katy Perry), this week's Fiesta will be dedicated to having F.U.N.!

    Last week I asked you if you were happy with the cast of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and you answered Yes.

  • Box Office News: Anyone who hasn't seen Sniper yet hates America!
  • Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Magic Mike XXL, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, and more!
  • In Theaters This Week: Jupiter Ascending, Seventh Son, and The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water

    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.

  • 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?

    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

    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

  • 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!
