I'm Puff the Magic Dragon...

White Dragon
You are a white dragon, pure and noble, you would
help humans if they desperately need you. You
are kind and wise with a heart of gold.


Which Dragon resides in your soul? (cool pictures!)

Alias was very good. You knew as soon as the group started talking about the mole Lauren would walk in. I mean it's so corny it's cool. Even though, she did it for her own ends, alerting Vaughn of her father's plans was a rather shrewd move on Lauren's part. They're more likely to trust her now, or so she thinks... Jack's on to her now. While it may seem strange to many that it would be he that actually believes Sloane, he has known him the longest. Frankly, the mole being Sloane seems way too obvious a conclusion for them to make. Personally, I think Jack could have shot Sark and still gotten the collar off before the toxin fully entered Sydney's system since it took him only two seconds to get it off anyway but he's not about to risk his daughter's life needlessly especially since he didn't even want her there in the first place.

A word or ten on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony: I didn't really care for the editing. Everybody had one song interspliced with their "acceptance speech" except Prince who had two songs unfucked with and he got to show off some more during the George Harrison tribute jam. (I swear Alicia Keys was going to give him a blow job or something...) I kinda understand only having one song from the Dells since who are they but Traffic should have had two. Bruce Springsteen's speech was very funny but he should have cut it in half. I love Keith Richards. Was he just drunk or was he stoned and why was he inducting ZZ Top anyway? I love the fact Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne came on stage to the Wilbury Twist though am grateful they weren't actually performing the dance...

Seeing Shatner on The Practice was very entertaining. I hope they use him more.

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 …
