Don’t Know What The End Game Was For Jeremy Putnam, But Dressing Up As The Joker Wielding A Sword Will Get You Arrested 10 Out Of 10 Times.

Foxnews– The Joker is behind bars. It’s a storyline that could be straight out of the comic books.
Yet in Winchester, Virginia, it’s a true story.
Local police said they arrested a man dressed like the famous comic book villain – decked out in a cape and carrying a sword.
Police spokesperson Jennifer Hall said the department received several 911 calls Friday afternoon reporting a man made up as Batman’s nemesis.
Thirty-one-year-old Jeremy Putman was arrested and charged with wearing a mask in public, a felony in the state of Virginia that can result in a year in jail.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Putman has a lawyer.

Anyone who chooses to dress like The Joker in public is a bit of a lunatic and is clearly trying to rile up the public. At this point after all the shootings and shit, it’s trying to incite fear. That’s pretty clear cut, but what we gotta know is what the fuck is Jeremy’s end game here. Honestly that’s the part that weirds me out a bit. The article has said next to nothing about it besides that he was arrested in a Joker costume with a sword. Now one option is a prank. Why on earth would The Joker be swinging a sword. That’s not his steeze. He’s a bullets, knives, and gasoline type guy. At least the Heath Ledger version was. So Jeremy might kinda suck at being Joker. Dressing like him is easy, you gotta fit the person with the knives and guns. The scarier fucking option though, is if this is his plan all along, to get arrested. We all saw The Dark Knight. That might be Putnam’s master plan this whole time. You think you got him but he’s actually 2 steps ahead with a bomb stitched up inside some druggie low life also in the clink and then the next thing you know the local Winchester, Virginia holding cell blows up and a crooked accountant gets taken hostage with access to millions. Sounds farfetched but stare at that mugshot a little big longer and try to tell me this guy isn’t a psychopath waiting to blow something up.

P.s- A year in prison for wearing a mask in public is pretty absurd.

Double P.s- I had to ride on an airplane with this terrorist looking dude one time.

DC Nerds Petitioned (and failed) To Take Down Rotten Tomatoes Because The Aggregate Website Gave Suicide Squad Bad Reviews

If you look up the ratings on Rotten Tomatoes for the DCEU, prepare yourself. Really, it’s not all that pretty. All of the films rank well under 60% to clinch a ‘rotten rating’ with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sitting at 27%. Even the much-anticipated Suicide Squad has earned at 34% rating, and frankly, fans are fed up with the site’s reporting. In fact, they’re so fed up that they’ve started a petition to make Rotten Tomatoes shut down. With just 413, the petition has one goal in mind: get rid of Rotten Tomatoes. Hosted by change.org, the petition’s description sums up its mission succinctly: “We need this site to be shut down because It's Critics always give The DC Extended Universe movies unjust Bad Reviews, Like 1- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016 [,] 2- Suicide Squad 2016 and that Affects people's opinion even if it's a really great movies.” Should you scroll down to read comments left on the petition, fans have flooded them with their sympathetic views. Many agree the site does offer biased reviews for DC’ films and think it's pathetic that people would try to intentionally make the studio's cinematic universe fail. Other fans reference Marvel Studios and their films’ higher ratings, insisting the difference is due to Hollywood’s double-standards. However, it looks as if some of these fans aren't quite sure of how Rotten Tomatoes work. As the website only aggregates externally published reviews to create its ratings, Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t actually award frivolous reviews on their own. To put it simply, the just do the math based on other outsourced reviews. But, of course, there are fan who’re accusing the site of selectively collecting certain reviews that further their ‘diabolical’ plot to ruin the DCEU. Many movie-goers, however, usually just ignore the site’s critical ratings and only care about the film's audience score. As that specific ranking is created by fans’ reviews, the rating is a more approachable number to digest. And, if you look at the DCEU's audience scores, fans can see their films all have ratings at or above 65%. So, hey - that's awesome!

3072003-suicide-squad-group-poster

So sad for DC fan boys. They’re like the hockey fans who are just begging people to like their sport. They were hell bent on making sure people knew Suicide Squad was going to be the best comic book movie after Batman V. Superman got a steamy hot dump on from critics. Now listen, i didn’t hate Batman v. Superman. It was for the most part entertaining for a summer action flick. And I don’t think Suicide Squad is that bad either for a normal every day viewer. I just don’t know what it is though, Marvel just seems to have their world much more relatable and has such a clean modern look. They do action scenes in the bright of day instead of this constant use of crime fighting at night where things are poorly lit and just doesn’t look that great visually. I don’t know, it’s just a harder world to sell and that’s the thing. Marvel took like 6 years and 6 movies to explain the background on all the main characters. DC is doing it in 3 years over like 3 movies. I’m no pro critic but that seems rushed.

Like I said, I’ll watch it and probably have a fun time watching Margot Robbie Bash people’s skulls in like a lunatic and Will Smith dropping killer one liners. It just sucks because I’m embedded in this internet world where I’ll have to sift through the nonsense DC fanboys will litter the web with going back and forth with Marvel People. It’s to the point where I wish there were real superheros out here in the world. Not because i need them to fight terrorism, violence, and evil polluting the world, but because I need them to just fight each other so we can get a definitive answer on who’s better. And what kills me inside is Superman can literally come crash landing from Krypton into the middle of Florida and we can just dose a human in radioactive gamma rays until he becomes The Hulk and make them fight. Once one guy loses their fan boys will just say “No way! This or that isn’t canon!” or “He didn’t have prep time, if they had the adequate prep time he would stomp!” They’re the worst.

Recapping The Biggest News At Comic Con (Only The Stuff I Care About).

CCILogo-R_Large

Biggest time of the year for entertainment besides sports pretty much. One of these years i always say I’m gonna go and do the full experience. Dress up like one of those weirdos even though in a convention hall packed to the brim and air conditioning working overtime even though everyone still sweats a few gallons because of their ridiculous outfits. I swear once being a nerd becomes full on mainstream and they start having sex there’s gonna be a staph outbreak from all the people sweating on top of each other in batman costumes listening to RDJ talking about reprising his role as Iron Man for the twentieth time. But I’d still go. Some of those anime girls get down. Anyways onto the main shit.

MARVEL NEWS

Doctor Strange

Interesting to say the least. There were rumblings that the MCU wants Dr. Strange to be the next Iron Man of series. That the addition to him is gonna change the shape of the MCU world. Looks funky enough with the Inception like world they’re dicking around in being all magical and shit. I think what the Iron Man, Captain America, and The Avengers movies did so well was grounding the film in the real modern world. It was California, New York, and DC. Nothing looked too silly or out of place and was relatable. I’m not gonna lie, when I first saw they were doing a Dr. Strange movie and figured what all of that was about I was skeptical because now I have to picture a guy floating around NYC like an asshole doing magic tricks and shit. Well so far it doesn’t seem too crazy at all after this trailer. Feels like they’re kind of fighting on a different plane but still within the real world. I mean they’re mishmoshing NYC teleporting and shit with normal people still walking around doing their 9-5 like they pay no mind. Like i picture them like ghost walking among humans where its the earth but they can’t be seen….I’ve gone too far for someone who doesn’t read or know shit about the comic books but what i do know is I will always have feelings for Rachel McAdams.

Thor: Ragnarokpeftdwo7x5cydddtasko

Not gonna lie, I love the look of the logo but I don’t get it. It looks like an 80’s movie or video game from Atari even though this is suppose to be the Apocalypse that kills all of Thor’s people. Ain’t hating on it too much, just curious. Any who, everyone who’s followed knows Thor’s teaming up with Banner for Ragnarok but I guess this is where Marvel is trying to tie in more Planet Hulk story line with this got damn Hulk Gladiator outfit.ZZ5A6C532B-700x725

Never understood why Marvel’s great equalizer would need a shield, war helmet, and a battle axe but I’m not gonna pass judgement till I see the movie. The Thor movie’s and Hulk movie weren’t exactly a cash cow for the MCU, maybe throwing them together in some gladiator, end of the world Jeff Goldblum Grandmaster type shit will bump them up in the charts.

Black Panther

5793e0ee65d0c

I don’t think they brought anything new for Black Panther aside from announcing who each actor is playing. Not much else aside from that. Michael B. Jordan is playing the villain to Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther as the character Erik Killmonger. From the looks of the comics it looks like he’s suppose to have dreads so it’ll be interesting to see how that look plays out. He also looks way more fucking yoked so i guess Adonis Creed is gonna need to pack on the protein.

Spiderman: Homecoming

600

Decent little tease going on with some concept art. Guess this is what Vulture is going to look like portrayed by Michael Keaton. After Civil War people loved the portray of this version of Spiderman from the mannerisms to speech. Looks like this rendition of Vulture would be a good match up considering in the comics he looked like a god damn old ass man in a bird suit.latest

Such a ridiculous look, but I think the new one on screen will look good.

Captain Marvel

By the time Captain Marvel comes out these comic book movies might very well become so tired as well as Brie Larson, but for now, they’re hot. Marvel’s about half way through their planned line up and Brie Larson dominating Hollywood. Such a crazy jump. Played a teenager 4 years ago in 21 Jump Street, then she was in the Gambler which stunk and for some reason i kept on thinking her make up looked awful and she had like acne in the movie, I didn’t watch Trainwreck all the way because it sucked but she was in that. Next thing you know she’s an Oscar winner and joins Hollywood’s biggest cash cow studio. Crazy career she’s had. If comic book movies are still fun and she doesn’t look like shes had an acne outbreak, I’m sure ill enjoy Captain Marvel because I kinda loved her in Room.

DC Extended Universe News

Wonder Woman

Far and away I love what Marvel brought to the table so much more than what the DC universe has brought up until recently. I thought Batman V Superman was decent of a movie but didn’t like the look of a lot of it but still elements that I did like. Now I feel like they’re finally catching up a bit. So far the scenes look great from the trailer but it is still a trailer and a great trailer doesnt always mean the film is gonna be good. We saw a bit of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in BvS in modern times but I am curious how her story is gonna play out in that time period. Also, Chris Pine, is he a superstar yet? I always feel like he’s on the cusp but never fully there. Almost like he’s living in the Hemsworth Shadow. Guy needs to date a super star or something.

Justice League

Again, looks pretty interesting. Gonna see batman play the role of Nick Fury recruiting the team. Now out of the crew I think Batman and Wonder Woman work the best. Aquaman, I have my gripe with. In BvS he looked like he was holding his breath underwater. I do not know why that annoys me but it does. Guy is suppose to be able to live underwater. He shouldn’t look like he’s holding his breath. It’s crazy but that’s what I’ve come to expect from movies in 2016. Next one is Cyborg. The CGI looks decent but don’t really know how the guy’s suppose to look. At one point he kinda looks like a bunch of shards of a mirror glued all around to make a suit of some sort. Don’t know if i would care to like the character. Last of all is Flash, the suit looks weird on his body but does look kind of interesting. Over all im curious. We know the villain is suppose to be the Steppenwolf dude. As with most of these comic book movies, it’s only as good as the villain so hope that he brings some thing to the table.

Suicide Squad

Not that we haven’t known about Suicide Squad since it’s being released next week but they gave us another look at it. I don’t know, a lot of nerds are super hyped on this. My buddy might go to the opening night of it even though he’s like a recluse . Me personally i could care less. I think Joker looks like a hot topic customer and Jared Leto tries to hard. It’s just not my cup of tea as far as the Joker. He’s not menacing really, just kind of annoying to me. Take away the weapons and he just seems like Jeffree Star. Heath take away the weapons and i feel like he looks like a lunatic that’s gonna ramble about some Machiavelli quotes or something about order and chaos. And as far as Harley Quinn goes, don’t get me wrong, Margot Robbie is lava hot. But I’m not gonna go see a movie just for a hot chick. And again, I hope one day at those comic cons i hope to find those cosplay girls dressed up as Harley Quinn. She alone though can’t make Suicide Squad worth it tho. But I’m not too worried as there’s still Will Smith with a smasher of a line “It’s time to save the world”(will smith voice).

EVERYTHING ELSE

Kong: Skull Island

Two of Hollywood’s hottest actors. On one hand we have Brie Larson who as i said before is like America’s Sweet Heart after playing a rape victim in Room. And then we have Tom Hiddleston who’s banging T Swift. Guy might also become the next bond because he has an English accent and staring in something that makes it seem like he can take on a giant over grown Gorilla probably helps his image as being 007. King Kong in this though, looks fucking huge. Like insanely big. The other ones kinda made him around the size of a small plane, This one looks like he can grip a 747 in his palm. Definitely Curious.

King Arthur

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur looks exactly like Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. Sure the period setting is different but still uses the snori cam view, the wit, the color grading etc. I’ll watch it when it goes to Red Box.

Blair Witch

Ed Lee doesn’t do scary shit. Not because its silly, but because I scare easily and I jump and might cry or shriek in theaters and I feel like it takes away from my tough masculine character. That being said though, The Blair Witch Project was awesome because it was a handi cam and they made it seem like all the people in it were dead. Shit was real. This was before IMDB became a house hold tool and definitely before people were flooding SDCC and them announcing that they’re actually not dead and just actors. I need an element of knowing i might be watching dead people or ghost. <—–(That’s also why Heath slayed as the Joker.)

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

What I said about King Arthur looking like Sherlock Holmes because of Guy Ritchie is the same for David Yates, this movie, and the last four Harry Potter movies. Guess that’s okay though since this is like a Harry Potter off shoot. I don’t know anything about it because I don’t like reading books but what i do know is people like Eddie Redmayne because he played a transgender person and spoke out about LGBT issues and that’s whats hot with millennials. They also love Harry Potter and weird and culturally “different” things so this movies probably going to rake. Guy was also pretty good at pretending to be Stephen Hawking.

Sherlock

I don’t really know if people are on Sherlock yet. It’s a BBC show so it obviously doesn’t have as great a reach but show is pretty good. Benedict Cumberbatch does a pretty good Sherlock and the stories are all pretty well written. I just hate the portrayal of Moriarty. Guy seems like a tool. I don’t buy his brain power. This season looks like a lot more action is taking place. I kind of like a 90 minute run time of light action and more detective shit but this is only a trailer so the action scenes might be spread out like seasons 1-3. I do want some difference though. Each show is like an hour and a half and something always leads back to Moriarty and then no Moriarty. I don’t even know if the guy is a living entity at this point since we thought he died but didn’t. Maybe he’s a ghost? Ghost mystery Sherlock would be kind of interesting.

Well there you have it, all the things I’m interested in seeing in the future that made glimpses at San Diego Comic Con. If anyone has pics of chicks at comic con let a brotha find out.

 

Tennessee Man, Tim Tawater, Is A Real Super Hero

WHITE HOUSE, TN (WSMV) - The man who ran into a burning house to save a dog moments before the roof collapsed met the dog’s owners Monday. As a home in White House burned to the ground Saturday, neighbors knew a dog was trapped inside. They watched as a mystery man drove up in a Mustang and ran inside. A few minutes later, the man exited the house carrying the 80-pound dog in a blanket. The dog, Sampson, was unhurt. The good Samaritan disappeared. “He got in his car and left,” a witness told Channel 4. The man in the Mustang was Tim Tawater, a 20-year veteran of the Nashville Fire Department and a self-professed dog lover. “I’ve had dogs ever since I was born,” Tawater said. “You got to figure that if there’s a dog in the house, the dog is definitely family.” Tawater lives in White House. He was off-duty Saturday and on his way to his daughter’s birthday party. “We just live two or three miles from here,” Tawater said. He saw the smoke and knew the volunteer firefighters wouldn’t be there for a while. “I don’t do it for people to say ‘thank you.’ I do it because it needs to be done,” Tawater said. The homeowners are Brandon and April Gorley. They had just arrived in Gulf Shores when they got a call that their house was on fire. They turned around and came home. Monday, they met the man who rescued their beloved Sampson. Sampson is a Bouvier, a type of German herding dog. At 82 pounds, he is only half grown. The Gorleys said they were very grateful for Tawater’s actions. “He didn’t have to go into a house that was on fire,” Brandon Gorley said. “Deeply, deeply appreciate him being there.” “The real heroes to me are the volunteers, because they don’t get paid for it,” Tawater said. “They do it for free.” A relative was house-sitting and had just left to go to the store when the fire broke out. Sampson’s owners joked that he had just gone to the groomer Friday, so he had a nice hairdo for his TV debut.

Does he wear a cape and a mask? No. Can he fly and have super powers? No. But by every other definition, this man is a super hero. Guy didn’t need to be called upon, because he’s always forever watching over the people of Tennessee. When a life needs saving, you can rest assure Tim Tawater is already in his batmobile Mustang racing over to save those In need. And as fast as he arrived, he leaves knowing that all lives are safe, and he races off in his mustang to his daughters birthday party/saving any one else who needs saving. He doesn’t see a difference between a man and canine or any other animal. If it lives in a house, it needs saving when its home is set ablaze because he knows that dogs like Sampson is family. He doesn’t do it to be featured in the papers, he does it because it needs to be done. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. He is Tim Tawater.
