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...)

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…

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…
