Big Lots Fires Man For Trying To Stop A Crime

I understand stores, especially corporate stores, don't really want employees to stop shoplifters. It can cause all kinds of problems, but when that employee is your store manager and has dedicated insane work hours to your business to help sales and run the store to perfect? Not to mention a father of 4. I think firing him over the situation is a little bit of a dick move.

I know this site generally only posts entertainment gossip and news, but this story really bugged me. I was going to call this post, Big Lots, More Like Big Dicks, but you can see how that wouldn't really work out. What Big Lots did was a dick move. There needs to be more people in the world like this guy. A hard working Dad who provides for his family and is a 100% dedicated employee, getting screwed over because he was trying to just do what Batman would do, stand up for justice. And protect the assets of the company he works for. Here is the story of what went down, from the guys fiancee.

Dear Weinstein Company, Please Bring Back Michael Myers!

Every horror movie these days is pretty standard. Ghost kids. Weird ghosts. Random objects that summons ghosts. And 1 out of every 50 or so that come along actually work.

I miss my slashers. I miss my unstoppable killing machines.

Face it, the Rob Zombie Halloween movies were awful. No true fan of Halloween, like Zombie claims he is, would take a giant dump on the legacy of Michael Myers by having him be a run of the mill redneck kid with redneck parents who goes crazy. John Carpenter did it to perfection. Halloween 2 was great, 4 and 5 were good, 6 was weird, but it worked and it fit. Halloween H20 brought it all back to the first two movies and it was awesome. It was done perfectly. Then Halloween Busta Rhymes came along and while the opening was kind of cool, the rest was just pointless.

Kids Have It Too Easy Today

While writing the article about the Game Boy's 25th anniversary, I went off on a small tangent about how kids today can't appreciate things like video games. And after I finished the post I sat back in my chair and realized, kids today have it way too easy.

I spend a lot of time playing games online late at night. Almost every night. And I gotta say a good 80% of the squeaky voiced gamers are pretty much assholes. I see it everywhere. In grocery stores, malls, all over. Kids today are crazy annoying, and I think I know why. They have it way too easy. They don't have to work for a single thing. I don't mean getting a job, I mean having to go through the tougher things in life like my generation did just about 15 years or so ago. Like having access to porn.

Justice League movie confirmed to follow Batman Vs. Superman!

In news that should come as no surprise, Warner Bros. Announced today that Zack Snyder, the man behind Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman, will also director Justice League. This could be amazing, or awful. It's kind of a sink or swim approach but I will hold off judgement until Bats Vs. Supes is out. Which I can't wait for!

No release date has been announced but with Batman Vs. Superman coming out in 2016 it's a good bet that 2018 we will see the arrival of Justice League. Along with Batman and Superman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg are confirmed for Batman Vs. Superman but will we see some other heroes pop up as well? Flash? Aquaman? Green Arrow?

Add Cyborg to the list of characters in Batman Vs. Superman!

Variety announced today that stage actor Ray Fisher has landed the part of Cyborg for the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie. That now has those three along with Wonder Woman appearing in the movie together. Pretty awesome news, wouldn't you agree?
