New Theories

I feel more rested today so I'm going to do work. Yes I am...

First, the shows last night. Charmed was very good. Jenny McCarthy's sisters looked so familar but I can't place where I've seen them before. Anybody have any ideas? Oh well... Chris's comment about "all my life" was intriguing. Does this mean that he's not after Wyatt but perhaps is Wyatt? If this is the case, what is he doing in the past and what about those scenes where Chris is talkng with Wyatt? As Lady Vader mentioned last night, Chris isn't here to get his parents back to together since he's basically responsible for splitting them up. Maybe that's the mission. Maybe he has to split them up to protect them or Wyatt, which is himself. But would a person with good purposes do the "Darth Vader" thing on a woman as Chris did with one of the Valkaries? This bares further analysis.

Remember when I said the new season of Alias reminded me of The Next Gen episode "Future Imperfect"? (If you don't, go over to the Archives on the right of your screen and check out the September entries.) Well, I was thinking more about this yesterday. How do we know Sydney wasn't captured by the enemy, whether we're talking about Sloane or Sark or the Covenant, and in some drug enduced fantasy in order to get some access code or something? I think this because of things like them now trusting Sloane after only two years and Sydney still having the codename "Mountaineer." Do you recall her reading anything? I don't... I may have a new theory next week but for now just think about that for awhile...

Thor Or Thunderstrike?

Marvel screwed the pooch with the Thor  franchise from the beginning. They took the more modern notion that the Asgardians are aliens not gods. In itself, that's fine but I can't help but think that just made it more complicated not less. (Wonder Woman  just killed them off which is better but that's still a big nitpick from me about THAT movie...)

I stopped regularly reading comics  after I graduated college in the early part of the century so I don't know when secret identities became passé but I think this also hurt the franchise. Originally, instead of dropping Thor on his head and giving him amnesia, Odin put him the mortal body of Donald Blake and then Eric Masterson. (Was that a complaint about Ghost Rider? Same concept really...)

In Thor: Ragnarok, to me, this '90's era of the comic where Eric Masterson WAS Thor was the best run of the comic and there were many Easter eggs from that period from Thor's Earth garb (with Mjolnir disguised as an umbrell…

Wasn't A Complete Punishment

Checking my Facebook Memories this morning, it is apparently the anniversary of my review of Jessica Jones.  In many reviews of  The Punisher Jessica Jones  is the pinnacle all other Marvel Netflix (or in some cases, Marvel shows on any network but that's a post for another time...) must be held to. I'll tell you straight out, I personally enjoyed both seasons of  Daredevil  more so... (Hell,  The Punisher  had a less annoying support cast...)

For reasons I didn't consider back then and don't care about now, comic books in the '90's saw the creation of more violent  characters to presumably dispel the notion comics weren't just for kids. Ironman, Thor, Captain America and, perhaps ironically, Batman got more gritty counterparts and the Punisher (and Deadpool) was created. Like most superheroes, Frank Castle's origins begin with the death of a family member; in his case, ALL OF THEM. In comics, it was due to be caught in the crossfire of a mob shootout…

Sunday Morning Movie Review

Black Panther was great. Just as  Wonder Woman  gave little girls a superhero to "look up to," little African boys (Yes, not just African American  boys) have their own hero. But what was even better about this movie is that it was so much more. It wasn't a stereotypical Eddie Murphy or Whitney Houston movie.  Even 5, 8 years ago, we wanted this to happen but this might have been just the right time. T'Challa is king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda that millennia ago became rich in a fictional mineral called vibranium that allowed them to  become the most technologically advanced country on Earth. They decided to keep this secret, however, and disguised themselves with a cloaking shield and the guise of a "shithole country." (See? Relevance!)

Wakanda has reached a crossroads. Xenophobia is really no longer working. The villain of the movie, Wakandan by blood but certainly not upbringing, Killmonger, takes the throne in an effort to take the Black…
