I do drugs. I die. I do drugs again!

Seriously though, I am in thrall to this movie, and I have 3 days left to decide if I make the 3 hour round trip to see it one last time in the theaters (one theater in a hundred square miles, one showing per day only). It's pathetic, I know. But I'm obsessed. What a movie!

My head is crushed.

 Is that a vexation?


Still thinking....

I live 1.5 hours from the nearest megaplex and thus going to a movie is an event - a 3 hour round trip, for crikey's sake!

So believe me when I say Mad Max:Fury Road is like no other film I've seen in at least 20 years, and probably forever. I'm going to see it for the 3rd time this Sunday, rather than seeing the newest Marvel must see, Ant-Man. Which I'll just buy the DVD when it comes out. Excelsior!


Things in the desert

I saw Mad Max: Fury Road last night and gosh was it awesome. Like truly a spectacle, one which actually lingers, as I've been thinking of the movie all day.

For one, it's beautiful.

Two, it's actually got a lot of things to say, with very sparse dialogue. Feminism!

And three? It's a Mad Max movie. I watched The Road Warrior dozens and dozens of time as a lad. To see this kinda sequel is like a dream.

Steeped in Dystopia.

No spoilers, but the movie is not overly graphic or extreme, even though it might seem like it from the ads and previews and material. Yes, there is a lot of violence, but it's so well done and hits all the notes it wants to hit, it's like no movie I can think of in the last 20 years.

Go see it on a big screen before it's too late.


Happy Hanukkah (post dated)!

Ben Grimm wishes you Mazel Tov!

For the record The Thing could only hope to slow down or distract The Hulk. The Thing is quite strong, but nowhere near Hulk levels. Maybe if you had all Fantastic Four you could contain the Hulk for a short period of time, but since they don't exist in the MCU, the question is moot.  Hulk smashes.


Hulk Smashed

I just saw Avengers 2 and liked it, because I am a nerd.

If you are into "normal" movies, I'm not sure why you'd like it.

But then, these movies are now making many billions, collectively.

Did you know Marvel is telling a story spread out over like 20 movies? Something like this has never been attempted in cinema before, and so far it's WILDLY successful.

I think back to my comic book nerd reading past when I had to hope the LaVerdiere's drugstore had Thor #288 on that rickety spinning comic book display hidden over by the magazine rack. And they often didn't.

But now? It's like we've been transported to some reality where comic books are real and everyone lives in a comic book. It's amazing and Strange*

*Dr. Strange the movie coming to theaters June 2018.


Do you even smoke bro?

Read the news pal: Arnold is numero uno, and if Arnold can smoke pot and be successful, so can you!



Bees Knees

If you ever find yourself having to fight a giant, go for his knees. Knees are the weak spots for giants - for everyone, really, but especially for giants.

Fun fact! Here's Andre with noted Washington QB Joe Theisman - who knows about the weakness of knees - and this meeting happened in part because the Washington Football Concern was curious if Andre the giant could play football. He could not - KNEES - but it's an intriguing idea. Imagine that posse as nosetackle!

Also, some hockey team needs to get a sumo goalie.



Understanding and rolling with perspective is a sweet super power.
