An Artisan Story ? John Varvatos Artisan Pure

Posted on 2:00 pm

Let me paint you a picture on this dull January day, you are transported to the verdant hills surrounding Xalapa, Mexico and its vast coffee and citrus groves. From the Mediterranean cliff sides, to the azure waters of the ocean, to a beautiful estate nestled in the mountains. Close your eyes and take a deep breath and inhale, there you go, can you get it ? Of course you can the revitalizing blend of citrus and fresh herbs with woody accents for a refreshing crisp aroma. The modern, sun-warmed woods from Mexico. And open those eyes again. Ohhh sorry your back at your desk, but see how vivid your imagination can be when you let go and your sense of smell is your strongest sense for recapturing past memories.

12 Things That Almost Completely Changed 2017?s Biggest Movies

Posted on 10:05 am

Marvel Studios Making a movie, even a terrible movie, is incredibly hard work: no doubt about it. Even the safest bet of a film can have a hundred different things go wrong during some stage of production, where changes have to be made ultimately either for better or for worse. In the last 12 months alone, countless movies were released which strayed far from their original visions, be it due to the studio steering a project to meet their business goals, directors fighting back against crusty old executives, filmmakers changing their endings last minute, or even a Hollywood A-lister being recast at the eleventh hour due to a sexual harassment scandal. Yup. Each of these 12 movies would’ve been significantly different if the original plan went ahead, but due to creative clashes, lightbulb moments and tragically unforseen circumstances, they all ended up going in new directions. Most of them are thankfully still good movies, but were the changes necessarily for the better? Decide for yourself… 12. The Original Ending Introduced Darkseid – Justice League Warner Bros. Pictures The Original Plan: The original ending to Justice League saw Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds) return to the planet of Apokolips, where he’s met by Darkseid, who subsequently kills Steppenwolf and prepares to head to Earth to tackle the League himself. What Happened?: Extensive reshoots saw the film being heavily reconfigured in post-production, with Warner Bros. execs deciding that the film would function better as a standalone movie rather than concluding with a blatant setup for the sequel. As such, the film ended with Steppenwolf’s defeat and the formal establishment of the Justice League…and that’s basically it. Did It Work?: Though it would’ve been undeniably cool to see Darkseid show up, Warner Bros. probably made the smart call here by not trying to spin too many plates at once, something the DCEU has struggled to pull off effectively so far. Though the final movie still isn’t very good, playing things coy was for the best all things considered, especially as Justice League’s disappointing box office performance has most likely put the brakes on a sequel for the time being. more .....

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3: 2020 Release Date Confirmed

Posted on 10:00 pm

Marvel Studios Though we’re being fed the line that the MCU will be completely different in the wake of Avengers 4, there are some things we know for certain are continuing as they were. We’ll get sequels to Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and MAYBE even Thor, but none have been confirmed yet – which Spider-Man 2 and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3 have (along with Black Widow). And while Homecoming’s sequel was given a 2019 release date, the other upcoming sequel didn’t have a release date until now. Thanks to James Gunn, we now know that Vol 3 will be released sometime in 2020… So how does this work with the previous announcement that Marvel Studios had three movies planned for 2020? That announcement had May 1, July 10 and Nov. 6, 2020 as the release slots for three mystery films, so presumably one of them will go to Vol 3. Whether the early one has been changed for Spider-Man’s 2019 slot remains to be seen, but it’s unlikely Marvel will move away from their successful three-movie-a-year format while it’s still working, so the other two slots might still be open. Perhaps one will be Black Widow? That still leaves another open slot… What we know of Vol 3 so far is that it’ll follow the events of Avengers 4 and will look to open out the cosmic MCU more, with Vol 2’s villain Ayesha returning along with her new creation Adam (Warlock for the uninitiated). And according to James Gunn, this will be the last outing for this iteration of the Guardians, so the stakes could be pretty high. more >> … read the...

12 Best PS4 Exclusives Of 2017 (So Far)

Posted on 1:00 pm

Sony 2017 has already been one Hell of a year for gamers so far, after it served up one of the best, most wallet-annihilating Q1 periods in recent memory. However, it’s PS4 owners in particular who have been spoiled for choice with a fantastic line-up of exclusive titles. While the Xbox One has unfortunately struggled to cobble together a compelling set of exclusives this year and the Nintendo Switch is still working on building up its first-year library, the PS4 has surged ahead with a thrilling mix of long-awaited sequels, compelling new IPs and even a few remasters of beloved classics. If you haven’t made time for these games yet, you absolute must at your nearest convenience, because they represent the best and most diverse gameplay the PS4 has to offer right now. Note: the term “exclusive” will in this instance refer to games that are either fully exclusive to the PS4 platform or only available on the PlayStation family of consoles outside of PCs, so not available on either the Xbox One or Nintendo Switch… In this post:  PS4   Posted On:  13th Jul 2017 Link to article more...

Will The Batman Be A Full Reboot After All?

Posted on 9:05 am

DC Comics It really doesn’t sound like we’re going to get Matt Reeves’ The Batman when we were originally supposed to. According to the director – who is currently promoting the excellent War For The Planet Of The Apes – he won’t be using Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns’ script at all, as he told MTV?s Happy Sad Confused podcast: ?It?s a new story. We?re starting again.? He also revealed in conversation with Uproxx what his personal drives are in making the film: ?I can fail for every single reason because of myself. I don?t want to fail because of something that I don?t believe in in the first place ? because I?m not going to know how to do it. I can respect that somebody else might know exactly how to do it. Like there are plenty of things that I?m not the right director for and I love to go see those movies. I love to see what people can do. But I can only do what I can do, and so I have to work from that perspective for self-preservation. It?s not out of any kind of like, ?My way or the highway!? It?s because that?s the way I have to do it for me to feel confident in my choices.? That doesn’t at all sound like Reeves is interested in making someone else’s vision for The Batman, hence the decision to build a script from the ground up. And as an extrapolation of that, it doesn’t sound like he’s necessarily interested in taking other people’s ideas forward. How do you reconcile that with him coming on board to an already established cinematic universe with an over-arching narrative that is apparently already mapped out? It doesn’t fit. So when he says “we’re starting again”, could he mean that the film will be a total reboot? Could we see Batman movies once more moving away from the Justice League ensemble and effectively starting a narrative timeline of their own? That would be absolutely preferable, and would make it a lot easier to tell the smaller scale, detective-led story Reeves has already been teasing without there being constant questions about where the rest of the Justice League are. Even if they don’t fully reboot it, this presumably means we won’t see Joe Mangianello’s Deathstroke, and there’s still a major question over Ben Affleck’s continued presence as Batman. In all honesty, they ought to let him leave and recast, or split Reeves’ Batman away from the DCEU by casting a younger actor and calling it a prequel/reboot and concentrating on Batman’s earlier years. It’s one thing to have the wise, old Batman in the Justice League films (and nobody would be against Affleck turning up in those sequels as the timeline is already established), but do we really want to see solo films about a post-retirement, ageing Batman? We’ve seen that in The Dark Knight Rises already, and in Batman v Superman, and it would be far better to see Reeves make a film in a Gotham that is still very much suffering with a villain problem. That way we get to see the rise of the villains and Batman dealing with them, rather than picking over a post-crisis, post-crime Gotham where we know there’s no chance of seeing...
