If you're a Bruce Campbell fan, then here are 3 things worth your time.

The DVD of the series "Brisco County, Jr" and "Jack of all Trades"
The audiobook of his autobiography (read by Bruce), "If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor".

"In the Heart of the Sea"

Loved it.  It's the "true-as-Hollywood-can-make-it" real story of The Essex, a ship that was attacked by a whale in the south Pacific.  The story inspired Herman Mellville to write Moby Dick, one of my favs.

 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Saw a history bit about the story some months back. They now suspect that it was sounds, transmitted through the water, by the work on the ship (hammering, etc.) that might have been misinterpreted by the bull whale as challenges. So the whale attacked for misunderstanding; not due to evil malice.

They actually subtly make this point in the movie.

Doesn't have to be anthropomorphism. Sometimes animals go nuts.

My two biggest complaints with the new Star Wars movie have to do with the Grand Moff Tarkin/Princess Leia uncanny valley, and the disjointed feel of the overall scene to scene continuity of the film.

For the first, I really wish they'd just found actors who looked a lot like Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher and simply done the rest with makeup rather than digitizing their images onto somebody else.  They got them 98% right, but that 2% is really jarring.

For the second, I have nagging suspicions that a whole lot of the original story got edited and cut up and reassembled into something that nobody was happy with, but could at least agree on.  It just jumps from here to there with no flow.




For those of you planning on seeing it soon, look for references to the original Star Wars: Episode VI.  There are a lot of them, some more obvious that others.  One I'll give away is that rebel fighter squad Red Leader is the same actor as in the 1977 film.






A question that occurred to me after leaving the theater last night- were we ever actually told the names of the two friends, the blind guy and his machine gunner pal?  Please keep an eye out for this detail.

Shit. I cried when I read the book as a kid.

Oh god...WHY would you do that to yourself?!?

Keeping it relevant...saw Rogue One last Friday night. LOVED IT. NERDED OUT. Seeing it again Monday morning with my brother and CB. My brother is a bigger SW nerd than me, so it'll be tons of fun to see it with him (like it was to see TFA last year). CB tolerates my SW nerddom because he loves me although he'll purposefully confuse franchises just to watch me stroke out.

Riding is a series of multiple feelings.  You can't simulate that in the winter, but it's (generally) better to feel something than nothing.
And, It's kinda like flushing your cooling system.  You don't know what's in there, so good to routinely flush it out.

You know, I totally get that. That's why I watch Steel Magnolias every now and then. But I'm OK crying over M'Lynn's breakdown in the cemetery after Shelby dies (spoiler...sorry!). Old Yeller IS ABOUT A DOG!!! I saw it once, before I even had a dog, and it damn-near destroyed me. Having had Holly the Wonder Pup and Oscar Clark, German Shorthaired Pointer Extraordinaire, in my life since?!? I doubt I could recover from that. Honestly. I've lost all four grandparents in my lifetime and, yes, it's sad. I lost my first dog 15 years ago and will bawl about it if I think about her too much. Dogs, man. Dogs.

Watched Miles Ahead starring Don Cheadle & Ewan McGregor the other night.  If you're looking for a true Miles Davis biography this isn't it - more a darkly humorous take on a low point in his life.  But it did have me listening to records for hours afterwards.

28 Weeks Later (2007): A sequel to the 28 Days Later (2002), this furthers the story line established in the first movie. We leave behind Batman's Scarecrow and pick up new characters; focusing on a woman and man who are holed up in a farm house. We know right away that the guy is going to be trouble because his hair is greasy, his eyes are wild, and his teeth are gross.

Oh wait... this is Britain... that means we know none of this.

We focus on a woman and her husband who is just a regular Joe...

So Greasy Guy makes it to a safe zone where UN forces (lead by US soldiers because that explains our choice of actors) have buttoned down the country after most of the infected from the first movie have starved to death.

Did we explain that it's not zombies, it's "infected" so they can die, don't need head shots to kill them, and are fracking fast (I hate fast zombies - and Illinois Nazis).

Greasy Guy meets back up with his kids (Jess from Long Way Down and some guy who's not been in anything else).

The kids break quarantine (because that's what kids like this do in movies like this - See Coral in The Walking Dead) and find their dear ole Mum (Murron from Braveheart).

Greasy Guy, Jess, Dead-End-Kid and Murron get back together. GG and M seal their love with True Love's Kiss, and Hawkeye (having left his bow and arrows behind in checked baggage) gets to shoot lots of people from his high-hide with a cool sniper rifle.

Four thumbs up from us.  This was a great movie.

Went to see it today.  We liked it a lot.   Tammy did bemoan the lack of slide rules.

Darklight ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0395512/ )

Dear god... I have not seen too many movies legitimately worse than this. Not even being full of totally recognizable names. Dear god.


Nothing is worse than Soylent Green or Zombie Strippers.

Watching After the Sunset. Still like it.

I got dragged to see John Wick tonight. What a waste of two perfectly good hours.

We liked the first one.

Watched "36 Hours" (1965). New to me and pretty interesting.

Revisited "Adjustment Bureau" and it was still fun.

Watched The Legend of Tarzan last night.  LMAO - it was more cliched than the old Weissmuller flicks.
