Link Tank: The Legacy of Ray Liotta
Remembering the late Ray Liotta, why Jurassic Park III isn't that bad, Morbius memes have reached a new height, and more in Link Tank!
Ray Liotta, star of Goodfellas, Field of Dreams, Marriage Story, and many more classics, suddenly passed away at the age of 67. Here are some of the greatest performances from the Hollywood icon.
“Ray Liotta, who died unexpectedly on May 26 at the age of 67, leaves behind one hell of a cinematic legacy. With his squinty eyes, rough skin, sly smile, insane laugh, and gravelly voice, Liotta oozed ferocity. And it worked for him across dramas, thrillers, and comedies for decades. Conversely, he could, on the rare occasions when he was asked to do so, rein that intensity in and play something resembling a regular Joe—even a Shoeless Joe.”
Morbius memes are running wild, so much so that some Twitch streamers are live-streaming the entire movie until Sony cracks down on it.
“For most of us, the idea of watching Morbius all day long sounds like a new torture method. The latest film in Sony’s Shared Spider-Man universe premiered on April 1, 2022, starring Jared Leto as Michael Morbius, a doctor suffering from a rare blood disease. In desperation for a cure, he splices his genes with those of a vampire bat. While this does cure his disease, it also gives him superhuman abilities and an unquenchable thirst for blood.”
Jurassic Park III, often considered a low point for the franchise, might hold up better than you’d think.
“It’s been seven years since I last saw Jurassic Park III and wow, did I hate it at the time. I know that for a fact because I live-tweeted it and, as I was watching, I legitimately despised everything I saw. I was not looking forward to rewatching the film at all for Jurassic Rewatch—which is probably why I found myself enjoying it so damned much.”
Want to get in on the fun of Bioshock? All three of the games are currently free on PC.
“I’m not going to do a ‘Would you kindly’ joke. I’m not going to do it. I’m better than that. Besides, you don’t need to be brainwashed to know how good a deal it is to get all three Bioshock games on PC for absolutely nothing at all via the latest Epic Games Store giveaway.”
The Star Wars Ahsoka series has been confirmed to premiere in 2023 alongside The Mandalorian season 3.
“Disney has confirmed that the Ahsoka standalone TV series will premiere in 2023. The news was confirmed at Lucasfilm’s Studio Showcase panel during the Star Wars Celebration event. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Rosario Dawson, who plays Ahsoka Tano, claims that she aims to play the role for life. ‘That’s huge. You know what I mean? To have that longevity with something, in my industry, that’s not particularly heard of. It makes me feel so grateful,’ she said.”
