Out of the Blue

Hurricane Irma Strengthens Into Category 5, and Florida Braces for Possible Landfall is today's bad weather news, as a second hurricane is making its way towards landfall in the Caribbean tomorrow. This giant storm carries even more dire advance warnings than Harvey, and Harvey resulted in at least 60 deaths, so here's hoping they are completely wrong about this one. Unfortunately these forecasts seem to be ever-more accurate, our hopes also turn to the safety of all those in the path.

Weathered Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Sniper Team 2.
Story: Lego sales hit brick wall, sheds 8% of workforce.
Science: At times during Harvey, the European model outperformed humans.
Media: Massive Landslide On National Highway in India. NSFW.
Superheroes look ridiculous without special effects.
King Joffrey was obviously misunderstood.
Follow-up: Fish attraction to plastic in ocean could be risky. Thanks Slashdot.

Trevorrow is out as director of Star Wars: Episode IX. There have been rumours about him and Kennedy not getting along very well for a few weeks, so it is not a big surprise. With so many Star Wars movies having troubles (massive reshoots, directors replaced during the shoot, and so on) I wonder when will Disney step in and force choke Kennedy out of the way.

I don't know what the original Rogue One would have looked like, but I heard Kennedy ordered massive reshoots. And it came out fine. So I'll trust her instincts until it bears rotten fruit.

She got rid of Lord and Miller for the Han Solo movie. Which is mind boggling, b/c they are some of the hottest directors working. But the proof's in the pudding, and if it comes out fine, then that was the right call.

Also, I don't have a high opinion of Colin Treverrow. Jurassic World sucked.
