One of the things in entertainment I'm looking forward to this year is Better Call Saul, the prequel about Saul Goodman, Walter White's lawyer on Breaking Bad. Saul Goodman was my favorite character on the show and I was ecstatic when they announced a spinoff was on the way. A few weeks ago they announced Jonathan Banks who played Mike Ehrmantraut would be a series regular and then my hype meter just about exploded. Could this be the greatest show ever since, well, Breaking Bad? Now there's a rumor that Aaron Paul will be doing more than a cameo and become a series regular. Fortunately this is still a rumor, but if you're reading this Vince Gilligan, DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!! Unlike Mike Ehrmantraut who actually is an associate with Saul, Jesse only knew him from Emilio. I'd be all for Aaron Paul guest starring in relation to an Emilio episode, but in no way should he be a series regular, it's not feasible. If it did happen, the show wouldn't be Better Call Saul, it would be Breaking Bad Origins. Please Vince Gilligan, don't make Aaron Paul a series regular! Otherwise I'm still very much looking forward to the premiere in November.

The LEGO Movie is not only 2014's best movie yet, but it's going to make a lot of top 10 lists this year, including mine. It's a movie that's stupid and funny while being heartwarming at the same time. The gist of the movie is that Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) is an ordinary minifigure who doesn't stand out, but according to a "prophecy", he's the chosen one to take the Piece of Resistance and destroy Lord Business (voiced by Will Ferrel), who looks an awful lot like Mitt Romney (according to Fox News).

Earlier today Philip Seymour Hoffman died of what appears to be a drug overdose. When I heard the news about 20 minutes ago (at the time of writing), I thought this was a joke. Unfortunately, it wasn't. I was heartbroken by this news. Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the best actors of this generation and he seemed like a great guy. Now we won't see him make anymore movies. The amount of movies he's in is countless. Capote, Moneyball, The Master, Charlie Wilson's War, Doubt, Red Dragon, The Big Lebowski, Boogie Nights, the list goes on and on. Everyone who's gotten to meet Philip has said nothing but great things about him. Rest In Peace.
