    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    Like Bob Bitchin' playing Black Sabbath at 78 speed. Watch this at 1/4 speed and it will blow your mind. Yeah, what's that at 0m 55s?

    Given the fandom reaction to the various tweaks over the years, I'm not sure how that would go over. Not a bad idea though.

    SOLO: A Spoiler Story (contains spoilers)

    Those sequences were great. The Kessel run was also a lot of fun. Actually, there were a lot of great scenes in that film. That's kind if his thing. I absolutely agree about Thandie Newton. I was going to say "ESB?" but it just hit me. That's cool.

    HBO's Westworld VII: Abort?.Retry.Fail

    Didn't catch. The rapid montage usually has something. have to watch it on YouTube at .25 speed. Charlotte has seen a lot of death. Having come very close herself, maybe she can start to empatize. Elise is so, so dead. Search your feelings. You know it to be true.

    William is a bad, bad man. He's not a host. He's just losing his mind. So, when Bernard went to the secret facility in episode 1, he registered as human on the dna scanner. did they ever explain that?

    Films have a tendency of doing that. Goodfellas: Paul Sorvino as Paulie Cicero was a sort of wise old sage with an old-school way of doing things. The real Paul Vario was a violent man who once beat his mistress with a baseball bat. Tommy and Jimmy were also far less charming and far scarier in real life than what was portrayed in the film; and they were pretty scary in the film. Still, Frank Lucas is interesting to me partly because, looking at the totality of his money and assets, he may have been one of the richest private individuals in the United States at the time of his arrest. I had never heard of him before the film.

    I liked american Gangster, though I think Frank Lucas is a more interesting character than the movie portrays him to be.

    I'm not a fan of Scarface. The original gone in 60 seconds was a brilliant piece of underground independent film making. The remake was just dumb. Elanore was a fucking hideous car.

    That's kind of the problem with Seinfeld. That formula has been copied in multiple ways since then and a few of them have, arguably, done it better. Plus I've watched enough Seinfeld for my lifetime.

    Yeah, "not dying" is also something I look for in a soda. I don't consume soft drinks at all. The only canned drinks in my fridge are club soda or beer. Club soda is very refreshing after you've had a few beers. Or, Add a bit of Simply Limeade juice and you get a nice, light fizzy drink that isn't cloying. I bought one'a them fancy ginger ales once. I can't remember the brand but it came in an old-timey glass bottle and claimed to have real ginger and cane sugar and not a bunch of chemicals, etc. It was brilliant. At the first sip I thought, "Oh! So this is what it's supposed to taste like."

    Still better than my brother-in-law.

    Ya know, since they are now connecting the new cinematic universe to the animated series and prequels in a deliberate way, it occurs to me that Temuera Morrison is probably old enough to play an elderly Rex in a new film. Just saying.

    I once has the good fortune to eat at a high end steakhouse at no cost to me. I had the 45-day dry aged New York strip. I decided to try it sans-gravy because I wanted to taste the meat. Very flavorful, very tender, but not an abundance of juice. The meat was great, but I should have ordered a gravy. Herbed garlic butter would have been been heavenly. I probably should have ordered it "rare" as well. I think I ordered medium rare but I might have ordered "medium". I'm also inclined to think a fattier cut of meat would have been more suitable, like the ribeye mentioned earlier. - Oh, and I have no opinion on the Jurassic world sequel.

    Yeah but what I'm talking about aren't really cooking shows; they're variations on American Idol that have a vague relationship with food. We used to watch Wok with Yan a lot when I was a kid. Justin Wilson (Louisiana Cookin') is still great. Martha Stewart is even pretty good. I have to support her because she went to jail for insider trading while serious criminals got billions for nearly destroying the world. I was also a fan of Nigela Lawson. Try to blame me.
