Not Much New

I could discuss my dilemma of two POIs but it really isn't one yet. I can already feel it starting. It seems right now it may come down to who I'm most attracted to or, and I hope this is more likely, their interest in me. I'll be sure to keep you posted. I can say now that the third has dropped out of the running.

On the job front, I came across some more leads this weekend that I must follow up on tomorrow. The most promising is a temp inventory job. Doesn't that just scream excitement?

Once again, I'm watching the big game with my parents. We already ate the special sandwiches we ordered and the jello, both of which were supposed to be for tonight. If past years are any indication, they will be asleep around half time. Pity me. Go Steelers!

So true:

Paranormal Investigator! You're not anything
paranormal, but you sure are obsessed with
it. You're probably a more then a little
weird, and tend to have your head in the
clouds, but really you're a brilliant person!
You don't understand why everyone has to be
so stupid all the time, but don't be
confused. They only act stupid because they
are, and the world needs driven, smart and
slightly insane people like you to make them
see that. Or, at lease annoy the hell out of
them with your awesomely twisted and eccentic
way of thinking.

One of my friends does that temp inventory job. And I don't know if it's excitment, but she's screaming all the time. However, she did meet her bf bc at this same job. They took stock of each other's inventory and marked it in good condition.

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…
