Yes I know….it’s been a while since the Goodie Wrap has seen the light of day. But don’t fret, it’s not gone, but it’s just been on the back burner. So what can I tell you…..news of Curiosity’s landing on Mars took center stage earlier this week which is really cool. Then the Mohawk Guy took center stage which is also pretty cool. Joss Whedon confirmed he’ll be back to write and direct the next Avengers which probably has the entire fan base breathing a sigh of relief. I know I did. Daniel Day Lewis get his Lincoln on and Sam Elliot turned 68. Overall it’s been a busy week. Time to wind it down don’t you think?
Prometheus was THE movie for me this summer. The one I’ve been craving for what seems like ages. The one that I drooled over after having seen that first trailer. When word came out that Ridley Scott was returning to the science fiction genre, I got goosebumps. It was an Alien prequel, and then it wasn’t, but it was going to be set in the same universe. Either way, I was happy. I just wanted a good sci-fi movie.
There was a lot of hoopla surrounding this film and once the marketing machine started up, it was hard to shield myself from the tsunami of….stuff that littered the web. Trailers, stills, clips, behind the scenes footage and lastly the viral marketing campaign. In an attempt to remain as spoiler free as possible, I stayed away from all of it, with the exception of the first trailer, and one I happened to see at the theater only a couple of weeks ago. I operate under the less-is-more theory. I don’t want to know anything because I prefer to let it all unfold while actually watching it. Which was a little hard considering the UK got the film a week before the States, but I prevailed. Finally Prometheus hit Stateside and to say I was excited would be a huge understatement.
So yeah….The Hunger Games hits theaters today, ok, well at midnight last night. It sold out, like, 8 gazillion showings in advance which is some crazy record. Reviews thus far have been favorable and it’s even certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. What better way to celebrate a film based on a book I haven’t read yet (I’m currently reading it now) than to devote a Goodie Wrap to it. Well, in a round about sort of way. Hunger=Food in my book. So therefore, this week’s Goodie Wrap is all food related. If you’re not hungry by the time you’re done reading this, then you’re doing it wrong.
There has been so much speculation about Ridley Scott’s latest science fiction film, Prometheus. Will it be a prequel to his classic Alien or not. Will it involve the space jockey or not. Apparently final word is that it is not so much a prequel, but will be relatable to the universe Scott created with Alien back in 1979.
Another week in the books folks. And it’s a holiday weekend. Can’t beat that right? So let’s kick off this weekend right with the latest Goodie Wrap. Wanna see some rad cakes and Captain Kirk arm wrestle himself? Then you should proceed immediately.
And I’m back for another weekly wrap up. According to my stat page you guys liked my last wrap up so that’s good. Glad I can spread some joy to the masses with mindless stuff. Hey it keeps me entertained, and my Momma taught me to share, so there you go! Let’s go have a peek at some way cool stuff that you don’t need, but are going to want!
