I Had To! It's A New Computer!

I last did this on my mother's last birthday so that's long enough. Right?

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?

To review:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend your cool...

Opening Credits: "Where You Are"-Jewel (Eh. It works I guess.)
Waking Up: "Blowing in the Wind"-Joan Baez (Again, I suppose it works...)
First Day At School: "I Shall Believe"-Sheryl Crow (Walking in the corridor maybe?)
Falling In Love: "I Go To Sleep"-The Pretenders (If you actually listen to the lyrics, this works surprisingly well.)
Fight Song: "Golden Years"-David Bowie (A fight between the Jets and Sharks maybe...)
Breaking Up: "Modern Love"-David Bowie (That's kind of cool actually.)
Prom (Perhaps Grad Walk?): "All Along the Watchtower"-Neil Young (That would have rocked if this song was played at my graduation but...)
Life Is Good: "Eight Miles High"- The Byrds (I suppose this works if you don't listen to the lyrics...)
Mental Breakdown: "Fragile Heart"-Jewel (Eh, I guess this would work...)
Driving: "Ooby Dooby"-Roy Orbison (Am I driving a DeLorean?)
Flashback: "Trouble Me"- 10,000 Maniacs (Not sure what kind of flashback this would be.)
Getting Back Together: "Josephine"- The Wallflowers (Well, she does taste "like sugar tangerines...")
Wedding: "End of the Line"- The Traveling Wilburys (Actually, I always did want the Wilburys to perform at my wedding...)
Birth of A Child: "Imagine"-John Lennon (That's really cool.)
Final Battle: "Rainy Day Women 12 & 35"-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Drug addiction maybe?)
Death Scene: "God Don't Make Lonely Girls"- The Wallflowers (Are these my last words?)
Funeral Song: "My Back Pages"-Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan and George Harrison (Better as End Credits me thinks)
End Credits: "Baby Don't You Do It"- The Who (Awesome closing credits.)
2nd try: "Sweetheart Like You"-Bob Dylan (Well, you have to have Dylan...)

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

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 …

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…
