Meh. I'll wait for the novelization. I hear they are putting together a pretty good ARC for early reviews.

Via +Rowan Cota, by the way.
 
Well that is interesting

I know one guy that likes it. He's not someone who's tastes match my own mind you.

SSSSSSSOOOOOOOUUUUULLLL HHHUUUUUNNNTTEEER!

(This episode gets much better when you imagine Don Cornelius narrating it.)
 
Threat Or Menace continues its weekly feature of WHERE WE WATCH WEDNESDAYS, with +Daniel Swensen covering the second episode of Babylon 5, "Soul Hunter"!  Will Delenn pop a cap in this mysterious new alien?  Will the new Doctor ever be able to settle into his office?  How will the Iron Chef strike back?  And what about Naomi?  Will she ever love again?
Babylon 5 : “Soul Hunter” Original air date: February 2, 1994 It’s time for another Where We Watch Wednesdays: Babylon 5 edition! This week is the second episode of the first season, “Soul Hunter.” Daniel's entry this week will be considerably shorter than last week’s, mostly because it doesn’t unload a giant dump truck of exposition like ...

A better way to put it is the dancing, acrobatics, martial arts, and singing is good, while the CGI is kind of cheesy, and the political message is rather heavy handed.

I thought I'd read the Expanse trilogy since it is being picked up for a live-action series. 

Only a few chapters into the the first book and what stands out thus far is the strong turn of phrase and dialog. Clever, snappy, even lyrical in places, the authors have a gift for making you go back and reread a line just to savor it.

I know I have read this, the book is somewhere in my flat, but I don't remember the first thing about it.

Ok, now some thoughts on Captain America: The Winter Soldier

(Somewhat spoilery so I'm including some space in here.)











Right. Look away now if you fear the spoiler!

First, this is hands-down my favorite Marvel movie, even with the shaky-cam work. 

Second, this was not a superhero movie. This was a spy movie with superheroes. Which works.

Third, it strikes me that the theme of the movie was a deliberate choice (and a signal to the audience, I think) of turning away from endless shades of gray and moral complexity in favor of something that pretty much everybody on earth can behind:

Punching nazis in the face.

It was nice to see Black Widow as a real, functioning character.

And the Falcon scenes were freakin' amazing. We've seen a lot of characters fly on screen before, but we've never seen that kind of airborne acrobatics and grace. It was impressive.

Also Robert Redford was good. Not phoning it in at all.

This movie changes everything in marvel's universe. Makes avengers 2 much more interesting.

So have you guys circled +Gretchen Sher yet? She's just getting started on G+ and is one of the coolest and most interesting people I know. She's a mom, a geek, a genuine scholar and all around cool dude. Er ..for certain values of 'dude'.

We need a Fixedsys font for g+, so I can do a proper "I HEAR AND OBEY".

You know your cold is bad when you sound like you should narrating a Frank Miller movie.

On the other hand, I kind of wish my voice were more like this all the time. Like a cross between Clint Eastwood and a rock troll.

So ....

Egg-laying gay were-gargoyles and the the men who love them.

I can't help but think a lot of female M/M romance authors just don't 'get' the concept of 'gay'. Not just the mechanics, but the philosophical and existential underpinnings of wang-wrangling.

On the other hand, I covered my eyes and laughed for a solid minute on reading the series synopsis.

I have a wacky nerd daydream in which I live long enough to see the day when we can just tell our entertainment systems what kind of movie we want to see and it will mix  up something new and unique based on our tastes, using our favorite actors of all time.

And this ... this would be awesome!

Ah ... this is a fake. 

Bacall and Monroe made How to Marry a Millionaire together but I don't think Monroe and Bogart ever made a film together.
