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?

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…

Ant-Man On The Ocean

I'll discuss  Ant-Man and the Wasp  in a minute but there's still a handful of thoughts about my viewing of  Ocean's Eight I want to relay first...  When the all-female Ghostbusters  came out, there was the usual "raping of childhood" complaints.  Ocean's Eight sidestepped many of these issues by being a spin-off of a remake that was already done. Sandra Bullock played the sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean. (There was mention their father was als in the business. A reference to Frank Sinatra?)  Also, if you want to do a all-female action and/or comedy movie, the heist genre isn't a bad way to go.

Soundtracks are usually "just there" for me. They seem to be usually selected for their beat and tempo and not their lyrics. Lindsay Lohan's Herbie: Fully Loaded  was particularly noticeable in this regard for me  but I was admittedly in a bad mood that night since I had rather watched  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe  for whatever num…

Going Solo With The Reviews Today

This post will focus only on  Solo: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars  has always had controversy going back to the old, old Star Wars vs. Star Trek  debate.  It's funny that  Solo  was directed by Ron Howard as franchise creator George Lucas once recognized Ron's brother Clint during a casting session as Balok of the First Federation in the early Star Trek  episode "The Corbomite Maneuver." I bring up this old argument only to point out when comparing the two as I've felt  Star Trek  (at least on TV. Harve Bennett dumbed down the franchise for the movies long before  Star Wars fan JJ Abrams did...)   that Trek was more intellectually stimulating while Wars was pure Good vs. Evil fun.  Solo  is a shining example of this and sunlight-deprived  nerds are up in arms.

A friend pointed out to me the movie explained too many mysteries.  According to the internet, the biggest, most controversial, reveal was where Han Solo's name came from. This was never a mystery worth…
