Harry Grows Up

Since I had a list of people who really are keen on knowing how my date went I'm posting here now while the memories are still fresh. She had a paper to finish so after the movie we just grabbed some coffee. Two topics of conversation came up that really shouldn't happen ever on a first date. The fact I have no friends in this state, although she brought up that topic, and what makes us feel old. Why that last topic shouldn't be brought up? I'm really old and she's not all though Nick at Nite makes her feel old too. I knew going into it that we had a lot in common and I'm referring here to family background and career goals not the trivial stuff that usually impresses me but just talking with her about it was so gratifying. Though not as important, her physical features/fashion sense are the type I'm into. Obviously, I have no idea what she was thinking but I'd be an idiot to think she was that into me so quickly.

I know what this reads like and Lady Vader and others who know me are probably going, "Here we go again." but I'm trying to fight it. Is there medication for this condition because I've never succeeded in controlling it before...

Ah, the movie. We had this family who kept getting up like every two minutes sitting next to us. (Why does this kind of thing only happen when I go to the movies without my parents and not when they're there?) Anyway, I loved the movie and loved how they cut out all the brooding Harry and "Snape's a Death Eater!" monotony from the book and ok, the SPEW storyline can also go but I kind of liked the Rita Skeeter mystery and I don't recall they ever explained that Karkov took off; he just stopped being shown...And can I just say that, with the exception of Maggie Smith, the French Giantess, the Patil sisters, Moaning Myrtle and Rita, all the women/girls in this movie were hot!!! (Thoughts you don't want on a date but I'm male so sue me.)

Every once in a while, you get a quiz result that is so accurate it's kinda scary...

You scored 25 Mass, 34 Electronegativity, 44 Metal, and 0 Radioactivity!
Nobody understands you... No, not even organic chemists. The social individualist. You like your attention... but not TOO MUCH attention. You are able to form incredibly close relationships with many individuals, but you don't really get along with preexisting groups. You value equality in relationships, and don't deal well with overly submissive or demanding people. Well, whatever... thanks for making life possible... oh, and cut the global warming out.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

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 …
