Obsession, A Stale Fragrance by Likestrek

Still no call but, as my mother pointed out, and yes, I do talk to my mother about it since she's a woman and right there, I gave her an escape hatch. It would be nice if there was a reason that had nothing to do with with me for her to use it and I know with her classes and work she legitimately has more than one but...Truthfully, I don't even know how she saw what we did on Sunday; whether it was "a date" or just "two people who know each other going to a movie. " Now, if my mother's perceptions are correct, this person's mother and grandmother thought it was a date...

I know I'm obsessing but at least it's someone new. Speaking of someone who isn't new, and why I'm sharing this now when it actually occurred on Sunday night (Yes, same day as my date) I don't know but, I was watching a rerun of Friends and it was the episode where Ross tells the British chick Emily he loves her. Because the episodes originally aired before I knew her I, of course, didn't make the connection the first time but Emily is the spitting image of my last library science-related obsession...

I think someone may be very envious of me for this quiz answer...

Darth Vader
You scored 62% airiness, 15% squishiness, and 57% edginess!

According to our patented JawamaticTM technology, you are most like Darth Vader in personality.

Vader, being a merciless Dark Lord of the Sith, is a black-hearted autocrat. Beyond that, he's an expert tactician, using his abstract reasoning skills to quickly assess a situation and anticipate his opponent's next move. He would make an excellent chess player.

Vader is, in a word, strategic.

(The polar opposite of Darth Vader is Chewbacca.)

Ah, but the difference is I don't want to BE Darth Vader, I WANT Darth Vader. What a difference a verb makes. ;)

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…
