What we’re Enjoying

Shua found a cool YouTube channel that spotlights innovative 3-D printing featuring some really cool inventions by a guy named Ivan Miranda. A guy with a fun personality and some really brilliant solutions to crazy ideas. Jay has been rewatching the Daredevil series and is remembering why he loved season 1 so much. 


Sci-Fi Saturdays

This week on Sci-Fi Saturdays Jay revisited the sequel to the wildly popular Matrix original, Matrix Reloaded (2003). Despite the now dated innovative special effects, it was a really beautiful movie to watch that expanded the Matrix universe in a very unique way.  Make sure to play around with the interactive map on MCULocationScout.com, now featuring Daredevil Season 1. Plus, you can tune in to  SHIELD: Case Files where Jay and Shua talk about great stuff in the MCU.  


Enjoy Movies! 

In 1984, Michael Douglas was getting into producing and had purchased a script from a waitress he met at Alice’s Restaurant (no, I’m serious!). He tried to get some very popular, handsome, macho actors to play the lead, opposite the up and coming Kathleen Turner. But ultimately he decided he’d just play the hero himself. With Robert Zemeckis at the directing helm, they set out to make a romantic adventure in the jungle. (But not really Columbia, because it was actually too dangerous) It became  a gigantic hit that established Douglas as a strong leading man, put Turner on the road to a string of hits, and gave Zemeckis the ability to create Back to the Future. 


Would you give the kidnappers the map or would you go after the jewel? Would you try to romance Joan Wilder? First person that emails me with the subject line, “El Corazon” will get a special mention on the show.  Let us know.
