Hmm I Don't Remember This Coupling

Eowyn
Your ideal Middle-Earth parents are Faramir and
Eowyn! Do you have any idea ho difficult it is
to find pictures of your mom and dad together?
That's because Faramir usually holds the camera.
Anywho, they are the prince and princess of
Ithilien, which will naturally give you some
sort of impressive title. Your uncle omer is
the king of Rohan, so when you were little you
actually got that pony you asked for. And a
beautiful Mustang on your sixteenth birthday,
too! Considering who your parents are, you'll
probably be tall and attractive.

Your Middle-Earth mama is Lady Eowyn of Rohan.
she's one of the coolest women in the history of
ever! She faced down the Witch-King of Angmar
and his fell beast for her uncle, so you know
she will do just about anything to protect you.
She will probably teach you to ride a horse and
use a sword and spear properly, not to mention
letting you visit your uncle Eomer and aunt
Lothiriel all the time.

Your Middle-Earth dad is Faramir of Gondor. He has
a lot of official duties, but when he is
finished for the day he'll will spend quality
time with his family. Faramir is very
intelligent, so he can help you with your
homework. If you are rambunctious it will
probably remind him of his brother Boromir, so
he lets you get away with an awful lot. Word
of advice: don not mention your grandfather
Denethor. Your dad doesn't want to talk about
him. Also, insanity runs in your family.
(Maybe you will get lucky)

I hoped you liked my quiz. Please rate it, okay?

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…

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…
