Not a Bad Evening

Enterprise was pretty good last night. It wasn't a sweeps episode really but what can you do? John Billingsley is a fabulous actor. (Why are the doctors of Star Trek almost always the best characters?) To that I must also add that wasn't it convenient that the one crewmember who's immune happens to be the doctor? Oh well... Was that scene with Phlox naked necessary? Why would his hallucinations tell him to sleep when we know Denobulans don't sleep aside from hibernating for like 48 hours every so often? If T'Pol was just a hallucination then what if there was a medical problem with the real one? Phlox apparently wasn't checking her. I'm not saying that's not realistic but I was just wondering. I loved that scene with Archer waking up and Porthos hoping up to see him. I could swear he was saying "That crazy man almost shot me!"

Guess what? I wrote like 1500 words last night! Hey! Considering I haven't written a word since the death of my muse in October I'm impressed and you should be too. I finished my "Loki's Revenge" story. Click the "Fan Fic Written By Me" link and check it out.

So I watched Saturday Night Live last night with friends, including Her, in the TV lounge in the basement. Christina Aguilera was actually pretty funny. (Or at least the writers were.) I absolutely love Horatio Sanz as Ozzie. Sanz isn't funny most of the time in my opinion, I reference the Walgreen sketch last night to give an example, but he was dead on there. And who knew Amy Poehler, who also isn't funny most of the time either but still hot, could do Sharon so well?

Ok, more comments about my love life. Just when I'm content to just let the matter drop, she appears everywhere. She appeared in my bathroom last night while I was brushing my teeth. Ok, she was in the TV lounge so that was the nearest bathroom but I didn't know that at the time. Are these signs from God or something or am I losing my mind?

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 …
