Reversion To The Old Ways

Since there seems to be no rhyme or reason to which of my posts get comments and which don't, I'm going post whatever I feel like. Sure, I love comments but I must face facts that I'm not going to get them.

No, I'm not going to review every episode of every TV show I'm going to watch this new season again simply because it doesn't appeal to me any more. To be sure, I will write about some of the new series since that does still interest me but not every episode...

I am going to go back to complaining about my love life occassionally though because, if I can't discuss it here, where can I? Remember that workstudy student I mentioned being interested in? Yeah, well she's married apparently and I think even has at least one child so even if she didn't commute from such a long distance, nothing is going to happen with that. (Boo!) This is the first time I've discovered information of this nature before I made a complete ass of my self so this is good in the long run but right now it kind of sucks...

I'm also going to perhaps discuss sports more. The Sox losing and the Yankees winning is not pleasing me in the slightest. As of right now, I still hold out hope of them claiming the division but this trend must stop!

I agree with the aforementioned student, the Pats should be penalized for cheating but too many people are acting like they are the only team that does. Teams like Miami and Detroit would never win if they didn't. My only gripe torwards the Pats is that the three instances where they were caught was in games that were blowing them out anyway. What's the point?

1. The Pats are the only idiots to get caught so far.

2. Considering the commissioner gave a very stern warning about this at the beginning of the season, Beelzebub is an ass for thinking it wouldn't affect him.

Mangini and the Jets were just nailed for some form of cheating so, you're right, the Pats were just the first...

Well, I'm glad you resigned yourself to no consistent comments and still decided to update. I'm starting to get into the red sox bc my man is a fanatic. And I'm always always interested in your dating antics. So yay! all the content I want, with none of the pressures of commenting! I win! really tho, I've just been so damn busy I haven't even updated my blog in a while. You should get twitter, it's a nice fix if you're too busy to update properly.

This made me spit out my coffee laughing! So true.

I always read your blog, but sometimes I just don't have much to say. I am glad you found out about the marriage prior to any dating inquiries. ;) You'll have to email me more about the waitress though...

And, I always thought most of these sports team cheated to some degree! ;) I'm not a pats fan anyways though.

Well, admittedly, I probably don't always write about things that need commenting on...

Yeah, the Bucs would never cheat... :)

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…
