Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 2/7/22 — 2/13/22


Ivan Reitman, R.I.P.  I just heard that the influential Canadian director passed away yesterday.

This has been a busy week.  We started with the Oscar nominations and the Olympics.  We’re ending with the Super Bowl.  We’re finishing up what’s left of 2021.  I almost feel like next week will be the first week that 2022 actually feels like 2022.

Lisa Marie’s Top 6 Super Bowl Ads


As I’ve said many times on this very site, the Super Bowl is pretty much all about the commercials for me.  This year, there was a few commercials that I liked but, for the most part, the selection was pretty bland.  Usually, I pick anywhere between 8 to 10 favorite Super Bowl Ads.  This year, there’s only six that really made much of an impression on me.

And here they are:

6. Frito Lay — Push It!

Sloths are so cute!

5. Amazon — Mind Reader

Why is Alexa trying to destroy Scarlett Johansson’s marriage!?

4. All-Electric Chevy Silverado — New Generation

To be honest, I got kind of sick of all of the electric vehicle commercials that aired this year.  Most of them felt …. a little insincere.  But I did like this one, just because it reunited The Sopranos’s Meadow and Tony. Jr.  It’s good to see that they’re still with us, regardless of what happened to Tony at the end of the series.  I’m not sure how Tony would feel about his daughter driving an electric truck, though.  “Gary Cooper didn’t need no charging station.”

3. Planet Fitness — What’s Gotten Into Lindsay?

Of course, if anything bad happens to Lindsay, we know who to blame.

2. Budweiser — A Clydesdale’s Journey

The horse survived!  I had tears in my mismatched eyes.

  1. Salesforce — “The New Frontier”

I’m not sure what exactly Matthew McConaughey is selling here but he’s one of the few people who can pull off lecturing from a hot air balloon.  As I watched this commercial, I considered that if McConaughey had run for governor, he could have floated around the state, campaigning from his balloon.  Instead, we’re stuck with Beto and his skateboard.  Oh well.  Miss opportunities.

The Shattered Lens Live Tweets Super Bowl Sunday!


Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

The Super Bowl just ended so I guess it’s time to recap the reaction of the members of the TSL Team who watched and tweeted about it.  Jeff, Erin, Case, Leonard, and I all watched and …. I don’t know.  The game kind of sucked this year.  I didn’t care about the game and I thought that commercials were kind of boring..  Case thought the commercials were depressing.  Leonard got so bored that he left for ice cream.  Jeff and Erin are mad that the Bengals lost.  Even though it wasn’t as bad as last year, there was still weren’t as many movie commercials as in the past.

I think our collective reaction can be summed up as this:

There was apparently some hope at the start of the second half, when the game started get exciting:

But in the end, the Super Bowl and the commercials just didn’t deliver:

It all led to one question:

Yep, that was it.

Here’s The Trailer for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness


It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and that means we should be seeing a lot of ads for a lot of films. I’ll do my best to keep up with them here at the site!

Here is the new trailer for Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness!
