    US Politics: A Farewell to Arms

    My heart says yes...my head just keeps asking for more liquor...
  2. One of the main reasons I took "lure" away from the story was the shot at the end of the entire web of ships and detritus...it felt like an actual web...
  3. See, I came away with the impression it was the one creature who had shanghaied the ship and was feeding off the crews. The simulation was merely a way to keep them from knowing what was happening. That all seemed obvious... perhaps there was more going on, but they didn't make that apparent...

    Elseworlds -- Arrowverse crossover

    They have tied it all up neatly, haven't they?
  5. Interesting. Aquila Rift was first in my queue and on further reflection, I really don't think, as a story, it was very good. It wouldn't be in my top 5...maybe not even top 10...but that might be hyperbolic on my part.

    Captain Marvel Thread 2: Talk to me Goose...

    I really want a good FF movie. There's enough precedent to get them out there without driving deeply into their backstory. Explain their being away for Endgame by having them ott the in the cosmos. Something like that. But who the hell do you cast? That's half the issue. Also, my one gripe with Captain Marvel seems from a lack of Peggy Carter...missed opportunity.

    Lex Luthor Puting #2: I liked the level of menace that Cryer brought this week. Still not 100% my internal image of Luthor, but much closer.

    The Umbrella Academy

    I plowed through the first three episodes...and I keep forgetting that I started to watch this...guess that says something...

    Captain Marvel Thread 2: Talk to me Goose...

    Sad. I thought it blatant.
  10. Finally saw it. Great soundtrack. Good story. Jude Law was great. I really liked Brie Larson. Sam Jackson just seemed to be having fun. My kids thought the cat was great. I was a little surprised by the direction they went in with the Skrulls... It wasn't the strongest Marvel movie, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable. I could easily see myself rewatching, especially once it hits FX and the like channels and is played incessantly, unlike the first couple of Thor movies which remain a struggle to watch.

    Goodkind 55: Back in the Dick Life Again

    Magic children?
  12. Finished watching all of them today. Not certain I loved any of them explicitly. Some felt like sizzle reals in search of funding for a larger scale project. Some if the animation was unreal. Zima Blue was excellent. Secret War was good. Lucky 13 was good. Beyond the Aqualina Rift I thought was disturbing, predictable, and just not good. Three Robots was fun. Sonnie's Edge was pretty darn good. The Yogurt one was just strange. I wanted to like Alternate Histories more, The Witness was all about the animation, not necessarily the story... there was a lot if forgettable stuff too.

    Comics XIII

    The Authority staryed strong and then fell off, in my opinion. Still need to read TransMet actually Planetary is possibly the greatest deconstruction of comics and genre that's ever been. Would that it hadn't ended...

    Persepolis Rising (Book 7 of the Expanse) - SPOILERS

    Kinda what I was thinking actually...

    Persepolis Rising (Book 7 of the Expanse) - SPOILERS

    Finished last night finally. Good to be caught up. The thirty year gap remains odd...but the set up for the last couple books I enjoyed...I even didn't mind Drummer. The realism with the distamce and how ships moving and communication works is what drives my Star Trek fueled brain crazy, though I know it's really qell done in these books. I'm just used to the instant gratification Picard gets calling across the galaxy...
