Every name I tried I was I woman but, when I tried my full real first name, me and my love interest were the two actors I thought about starring in the movie version of the novella I wrote. I thought Lisa Kudrow would be perfect to play the star and Brad Pitt was an early thought for the love interest although I seriously doubt he can play good Ukrainian.

Stargate SG-1 was better than last week but still sucked. Dr. Janet Fraiser, played by the attractive Teryl Rothery, was killed off in like first five minutes and the whole episode pretty much dealt with the cast grieving but without clips (As much as I hate clip shows, it seems like it could have been used well here) and no Cassie. (Frankly, watching this episode, I'm shocked they remembered her at all.) Curiously, Sam asked Hammond how he was doing and he seemed really bummed more than someone who was just a superior would be. Was there something going on between Hammond and Fraiser that just was always edited out of final drafts? Hmm. In addition to the grieving, they continued the boring documentary angle from last week and added the obligatory investigation into the death of an officer. (Although, the NID agent who conducted this was Robert Picardo and wasn't shown enough.) A question I have is will Rothery continue to do the voice of the Asgard scientist, Heimdall? (Not that he, or she, has been seen in awhile...)

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 …
