Here we go with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.
Movie Trailer of the Week:
Pacific Rim – In theatres July 12th, 2013
Synopsis:When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.
Giant robots fighting to save earth??? sounds familiar doesn’t it, but this time I don’t expect everything to blow up like a Michael Bay film or star the overrated Shia Labeouf. This time we get Guillermo del Toro, who I must say has done some decent work, including writing some of The Hobbit, putting his spin on this tale. Most of the stars I don’t know, but it does have the awesome Ron Perlman.
YouTube Video of the Week:
Fifty Shades of George Takei
Although I haven’t, and don’t plan on reading this particular series of books, I can be amused when they are read by none other than George Takei. His rich, deep, voice almost makes this tolerable, plus he throws in a few of his trade mark “Oh My’s”.
News Article of the Week:
Dental assistant fired for being “too hot”.
Really? OK, let’s see if we can figure this one out.
Women gets a job with dentist, works there 10 years, dresses like a woman. Dentist finds assistant attractive, maybe too attractive, starts texting assistant. Dentists wife finds out, demands assistant get fired for being attractive, woman gets fired. Woman sues for gender discrimination, court disagrees. Yup, we sure live in a sane world.
