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. ;)

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 …
