I Loved Season One And Two Of The Expanse

And I am happy that SYFY gave the show a third season and didn's just abandon the story and give the screwgie to all the creators like they did with Stargate Universe which was brilliant and ended way too soon.

READ IT?? I Could Have Wrote It

I wrote the best letters as a young man before the internet. I even has a special calligraphy path and a wax stick to seel the letter and my own stamp to personalize the wax. I wasn't playing aound here. I was creative guy after. Why half-ass a love letter. Go big or go home. Of course it resulted in 'O' (ZERO) woman ever finding me even interesting enough to date and these were the ones that I wrote the letters to. So all that care and all that effort and I am still totally going to die bitter and alone. Well I hope all you girls who think that your man has to be some Pro Athlete and a Test Pilot before you will even engage him in conversation. Someone send my ass to Mars. I am BEGGING you Elon Musk. Let me be your test subject. Outfit me a nice double wide trailer and ship me off on the next rocket. I have have it people because they are people. My terms are very reasonable.

All I Ask Is That You TRY!



But our redneck town theatre didn't have them.
If you think of me, hook a brother up.

From The Caturday Files


It Hurts Me To Know That This Movie Exists

I love you guys but you can NEVER go back in time and recapture lightning in a bottle. There are so many reasons why the original Karate Kid is such a fantastic film and there is no way you can replicate that magic in the least. Give it up. Walk away before you embarrass us all.

Black Panther (2018)

Throughout watching the movie I was struck by how it was often the strength, love and support of the WOMEN in T'Challa's inner circle that give him the ability to go beyond what he thought he was capable of. They are the reason for his compassion and they are his most secret weapon because when they are behind him he is unbeatable. Truly a man worthy to be king. They open him up to wisdom as well and that also distinguishes him as unique in this world.

Danai Gurira who plays General Okoye is fantastic in the role . We all remember her from the Walking Dead as Michonne and like in that show she is glorious, brave and strong. Another stereotype broken.

His sister Shuri is fantastic. So charming and funny and a smart ass who has no tolerance for being told that she is 'less than' because she is a female. She has a huge career in front of her because he is magnetic on screen.
The royal sandals?? Any scene with Princess Suri is GOLD. She is such a SMART rebellious smartass who knows her own value in a way I wish so many other girls would. Did I mention that all the female characters are just as magnificent?

I won't even go into all the cool Afrofuturism that dominates the design of this film. It's so colorful and beautiful and REAL. I believed instantly that this world existed. I believed the relationships and connections between the past and the future. It's such a rich viewing experience.

Then there is the story which is thrilling to watch unfold. I rarely have enjoyed a film more than I have the Black Panther and I have already seen so many of the scenes already. It didn't matter. There were so many great things to enjoy here.

The soundtrack is the first one that I have downloaded in a long time because I found that I liked each song that they used in the various trailers. I don't listen to much modern music but this Kendrick Lemarr is the real deal who knows to how to collaborate with other artists to create music that can cut through all volume of garbage music that is out there.

Andy Serkis is terrific as the insane, amoral, murderous racist. He's just the kind of unpredictable psychopath that is the right choice for the bad guy because like the Panther he is a force of nature and Serkis plays Ulysses Klaw with great relish.

"Guns, so primitive" - LOVES me some General Okoye. She is the baddass of all baddass warrior chicks. Not since Grace Jones in Conan The Destroyer. have I been so impressed with a Sister's battle skills.

I enjoyed the arguments the character have about life and death and who is worthy to enjoy the benefits of Wakanda's medical science and who is not. Their are also debates about how best to be a King in a world that always forces you to make tough decisions. This is not just a superhero film. This is Shakespeare tragedy. I could watch a Black Panther movie every year. That is if he survives Infinity War.

I might hve to see the movie three times to get all these cool popcorn holders.
