Hmm

Melancholic
Melancholic: You are melancholic. The element that
you are associated with is earth, and your
endocrine system is dominated by the thyroid.
People look to you for answers, and you have an
analytical way of looking at things. You are at
your best when you are feeling creative, and
you tend to withdraw when sad. If you are
feeling unwell, you should probably eat fewer
carbs and more protein. You probably sleep very
erratically, anywhere from 5-10 hours a night.
You probably tend to snack, and eat a lot of
vegetables and pasta. You are most attracted to
people with a sanguine temperament. Jungians
call you a Sensory Extrovert. You comprehend in
the mode of "I Know", and your mode
of being is Feeling.


What is your Humour?

I did it. I'm going to still try to talk with her in person but this afternoon I sent her an e-mail. I admit some things that are wrong with this such as how unromantic it is how well it didn't work in my favor in the past (Although they could have been coincidence.) You also don't need to remind me of what happened when I sent such a message to my first love. I have a fallback position this time. She goes to the same school I do not one eight hours away.

I'm relieved I finally got it off my chest but I still worry about her reaction. I'd like to be able to quote Sheryl Crow and say "I've gotten used to Crash and Burn" but I can't. Does anyone really?

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…

Setup Complete

When I wrote my blog post on the previous Netflix series, Luke Cage, I noted it was only about 90% as dark as Daredevil  and Jessica Jones. Iron Fist  is only about 90% as dark as that series.While that does make me question the Mature rating, I have no problem with that.

I feel in the mood to structure at least the beginning of this review on my feelings on complaints I've heard

1. The acting and writing: I'm sure my bar is lower than others but I feel people who feel the strongest about this have never watched movies on Lifetime or Hallmark. (Oddly, I read a comment on Twitter from a complainer that he had higher hopes for Cloak and Dagger on Freeform than  Inhumans on ABC. Special effects budget, sure but writing and acting? I think that's an iffy wager at best but I digress.)

Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick are great as Danny Rand and Colleen Wing. Danny to me is just as a 25 year old man who spent 15 years cut off from the world as he knew it in a monastery (think ster…
