I Will Not Say I Told You So.

Ok, I will. Everybody from Pats fans to Vegas knew the Patriots would win. Now they're calling this a dynasty. Next season they still won't get any respect. I was watching CNN earlier in the week and some stupid anchor woman actually said there was no big name teams in the Super Bowl. How stupid can you get?

It was not Satan. The Pats were just the superior team. They didn't have freezing cold temps or 2 feet of snow to keep Carolina off balance and they still won. God bless Vinateri for making that FG. The Pats defense in the first half was amazing. Deion Branch may be my new buddy and Antwoine Smith finally picks up the running game that he hasn't done all freaking season.

There were some complaints. Vinateri should be able to make 31 yard FG in stellar conditions in his sleep yet he hooked the damn thing. (I'm not going to blame him for the blocked FG.) If he didn't make the game winning FG, I'd have stuck a cleated-foot up his ass.

Another complaint: Where the hell was the defense in the second half that was so dominant in the first? Thankfully, Carolina's fell apart too.

The best commercial was the donkey who wanted to be a clydesdale but the NFL one was second in in my mind. Overall, however, I wasn't impressed with the commercials this year. In most cases the CBS promos, especially the Everybody Loves Raymond promo with Marie complaining she "isn't a trophy wife," was more entertaining.

I'm upset that I have class Thursday nights because Survivors All-Stars last night was pretty entertaining. It took Richard like five minutes to get naked. I can't believe they almost voted off my Jenna!

Ok, so last night at dinner, I see her sitting by herself so I sit down and offer my condolences and help. This isn't the first time I've seen someone in such emotional pain but it could have been the first time I really cared. I still can't believe I brought up the fact I haven't used those Bertucci's certificates yet! What the hell is wrong with me! Tonight at dinner, she didn't make eye contact with me. I'd say any chance I had that this would ever go anywhere is done.

Yay Pats!!!

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…

The Blog Comes Around

Went to see Logan yesterday. I had already read tweets claiming it was the "best X-men film to date" which, to be honest, is not the highest of bars to leap over.  After seeing it, I would go much further with my praise. It doesn't really have the feel of a comic book film at all. This leaves both Spider-man 2 and The Dark Knight  in the dust in this respect...

To me, it feels more like a post-apocalyptic film (a genre that seems to get more critical praise, or at least scrutiny, incidentally.)  You have a small group of people, last of their kind, making the journey to Eden. This is the trope found in that genre. Death and bleakness, found also in Westerns, is evident from the Johnny "Man in Black" Cash songbook and the inclusion of Elizabeth Rodriguez best known from the show Orange is the New Black! (Sure, possibly a coincidence but if not? Sweet!) Just because it includes characters from comic, I'm pretty sure award voters will not see it in this respec…

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …
