Euphoria

To pass the time while my parents were gone for the weekend, I decided to have a Star Trek movie marathon of sorts. I watched Star Trek: Generations last night and then watched Star Trek: First Contact after church today. At some point today, I'll be watching Star Trek: Insurrection and then Star Trek: Nemesis before they come back tomorrow evening.

That's not what has me in such a good mood, however. While watching First Contact, the phone rang and I, of course, was like "If this is a telemarketer, someone will die." but no, it was for me but it a certain woman returning my phone message...I was right. She had been working a lot. She'd like to get together again...but not until after the holidays. I have mixed emotions about that but I'm very happy nonetheless.

I'm ok with being the friendly fat guy...








Hurley
You scored 55% kindness, 36% courage, 36% seedy past, and 51% secretiveness!

"For the record, my belt HAS dropped a notch. I'm a big guy. It's gonna be a while before you're going to want to give me a piggy back ride."


Dude, you are Hurley. You are a kind soul with some terrible luck. While you're always lending a helping hand, you're not exactly the bravest guy on the island. What you do is even more important - keep people entertained. The only problem you've got is that whole jinxed numbers thing. You're so secretive, no one on the island even knows that you're a multimillionaire! Let it out, dude. There's no use trying to keep it all bottled up inside, man.

Your polar opposite is: Jin. You are similar to: Claire and Sun.

Sunday Morning Movie Review

Black Panther was great. Just as  Wonder Woman  gave little girls a superhero to "look up to," little African boys (Yes, not just African American  boys) have their own hero. But what was even better about this movie is that it was so much more. It wasn't a stereotypical Eddie Murphy or Whitney Houston movie.  Even 5, 8 years ago, we wanted this to happen but this might have been just the right time. T'Challa is king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda that millennia ago became rich in a fictional mineral called vibranium that allowed them to  become the most technologically advanced country on Earth. They decided to keep this secret, however, and disguised themselves with a cloaking shield and the guise of a "shithole country." (See? Relevance!)

Wakanda has reached a crossroads. Xenophobia is really no longer working. The villain of the movie, Wakandan by blood but certainly not upbringing, Killmonger, takes the throne in an effort to take the Black…

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…

Going Solo With The Reviews Today

This post will focus only on  Solo: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars  has always had controversy going back to the old, old Star Wars vs. Star Trek  debate.  It's funny that  Solo  was directed by Ron Howard as franchise creator George Lucas once recognized Ron's brother Clint during a casting session as Balok of the First Federation in the early Star Trek  episode "The Corbomite Maneuver." I bring up this old argument only to point out when comparing the two as I've felt  Star Trek  (at least on TV. Harve Bennett dumbed down the franchise for the movies long before  Star Wars fan JJ Abrams did...)   that Trek was more intellectually stimulating while Wars was pure Good vs. Evil fun.  Solo  is a shining example of this and sunlight-deprived  nerds are up in arms.

A friend pointed out to me the movie explained too many mysteries.  According to the internet, the biggest, most controversial, reveal was where Han Solo's name came from. This was never a mystery worth…
