http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/07/23/7-charact ers-who-like-the-female-doctor-who-broke-the-glass -ceiling/

I'm a who fan, especially the 2005 reboot/continuation of the ancient show. I personally look forward to a female Doctor.

Spoiler alert... Spoiler alert

I also loved the latest companion. The first openly gay female character on the show, the running gag that she can't get laid because the world coming to an end interrupts her was initially hilarious. Imagine your first date with a girl being interrupted by The Pope.


End Spoilers.

Although Bill was the first openly gay female companion she was preceded by Captain Jack, openly everything sexual male. I'd say bi..... but that doesn't cover it. He doesn't care if they are human as long as they say yes.. like Captain Kirk.

But brave.... ok, just following orders BBC mandatory sexuality break through aside, the New Doctor is not the first powerful female character in science fiction or tv or movies.

The works of many writers going back decades have had strong female characters. As usual Robert Heinlein was there long before with his preference for hot, redhead, omnicompetent heroes. ( like his wife, Virginia ) or EE "Doc" Smith and his hyper competent female characters. Or Tolkien and his.... although a modern feminist nut would object to the Little Mermaid plot with Arwen.

In other words. Much ado about little. From both sides.

Sounds like it would be a fun - or should I say funny - time!

Warning - if you do not have a sense of humor, or cannot handle being an adult, do not watch past the first 10 seconds or so of this clip!

So two cannibals are outside the circus tent. One cannibal says to the other,"Does this clown taste funny to you?"


Back you your' marvel.

Thanks for that! I was waiting, waiting, to hear Tesla mentioned... that should be a great flick.

One of the first books I remember was a biography of Thomas Edison. A hero of mine for years. It was a shock to find how slimy the guy could be.

Electrocution as a method of capital punishment was a publicity stunt campaign to discredit alternating current. From the seller of direct current equipment.

https://www.avclub.com/the-35-best-science-fiction -movies-since-blade-runner-1819142386

I don't like several of these choices, Videodrome, for example, but at the time it was a fresh, nightmare inducing film that stuck with me, even if I never want to see it again. Others like Inception seem like pretentious crap to me, although with great effects.

Which just goes to show that taste is taste and a movie I gush over may leave you cold.

Any opinions on this list?

I will say that 3, 4, 5, 18, 20, 21, 26, 28, 32, and of course, Bladerunner ( original cut ) are classics and I recommend them without reservation. ( yes, even Buckaroo Banzai, it's awesome in so many ways )

11, 16, 23, ( which I loved )& 30 all get honorable mention but. And the But can be severe.

17, Starship Troopers, REALLY torqued me off with it's butchery of the source material, which the Director hated. Ironically I love the parts where he's most heavy handed, and the furthest from the source material, the infomercials pushing the fascism he wrongly saw in the original... and I don't think he ever read. I really believe this is a movie made from a description of a book. Third hand.

There are a few I don't remember, or didn't see, or just didn't enjoy. ( #1 comes to mind, but that might be for personal reasons )

I'm wondering if there is any tie in with "Gifted".

If this is a straight horror story, I'm not interested, but I think this trailer is meant to cash in on It.

Not Safe For Work Or Children



I've always been a fan of the Cop Buddy Movie. We've had a lack of them since the racism that made them Bold has eased. I did enjoy Alien Nation, both the film and the tv series, which substituted an Alien for the Black Cop or Asian Cop ( or in the Jackie Chan series, the Black American Cop to the Asian partner )

Orc partner? Yeah, I'm going to have to pay Netflix for this one.

Saw Justice League. Thumbs up. Not so much the dark brooding tone of the previous Man Of Steel & Batman vs Superman. Some dark & brooding but thematically justified and not dire. ( gotta have some bad vibes to get better from. )

Special effects top notch. A little monochrome compared to the Technicolor tone of Marvel movies.

Enjoyed the acting. Ben Affleck is a darn good caped crusader. Pity personal issues may take him out of role in future flicks. Gal Gadot is gorgeous and owns the role. No one sucks.

Worth a theater ticket. There is a post credit clip, but if your bladder is full go ahead once the black & white credits begin. Plenty of time as the special effects credits are lengthy. Honestly you can catch it on YouTube shortly if not already and not be too disappointed.

DO NOT LEAVE until the b&w credits begin. There is a short music & graphics credits segment ( like with Age Of Ultron ) & then a worth the wait scene. No spoilers.

Thor Ragnorok.

Good. Better than the previous Thor Dark World. Dovetails nicely with Captain America Civil War, without needing to see the other movie. A set up film for Infinity War.

Acting? Great. Jeff Goldbloom is fun, and everyone does a decent job. Great comedic moments. Decent drama too. Loved the Dr. Strange scenes.

Special effects top notch. Overall tone is deliberately 1980's colorful. ( think early 80's zooming rainbow credits. ... just look at the trailer )

No complaints. Will buy DVD.

Another late review.

Kingsman Golden Circle.

Good. Impossible to beat first movie if only because it was so surprisingly good.

But they stayed true in spirit. Gadgets & over the top villain, check. Characters you like, check. Tongue in cheek mockery of the gentleman spy genre, check. Stunts to rival a Bond film, check.

Can't & won't do spoilers. Check second run theaters if you've got the time. If not, it's worth the watch some evening when it's available. R rated for violence and brief partial nudity. Like the first one, not for small children. Watch before deciding if the kids are mature enough.
