Had no idea they were making an Ender's Game movie! Hopefully they don't try and make it a kids movie or something. Loved that book.

NBC is just the worst.

Of course I'm excited about Parks and Community renewals, but I'm actually pretty mad about Go On getting cancelled and John Mulaney's pilot not getting picked up. The Mulaney news is especially heartbreaking. The show already has a built in fan base, there's not that much to gamble on, come on!

I'm seeing Star Trek on Friday (hopefully) with my mom, I'm so excited. The first movie was stellar.

PS. Thanks for the movie numbers! I think they make a great addition. Great Gatsby is really gonna fall next week if it didn't even beat Iron Man on its second weekend.

Actually surprised Community was renewed, this 4th season has been mediocre. The last thing the world needs is a 50 Shades of Grey film, but if it has Emilia Clarke in it, then i'll watch it on mute so I won't have to listen to the diabolical dialogue.

Mediocre is being kind.. some episodes have been downright terrible. I'm still gonna continue to back the show though.. when it hits it's hysterical.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is most likely going to be really really awesome.
