Frenetic Friday 


So much Frenetic Friday and so little to write. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it. ( Welcome to time travel Frenetic Friday as this post was to be published last Friday so here for your enjoyment is Frenetic Friday)

And now Sinjorinoj kaj Sinjoroj, Damen und Herren, Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to another Frenetic Friday.  Please keep your hands inside the car as the management is not responsible for loss of limbs.  

Speaking of our Robotic Over Lords it has been awhile since we checked in on their plans for world domination.  So let’s see what’s​ new. 

Sarah Connor?  

Wait let’s look at something more positive. Meet SAM the brick laying robot.

And now for a trip to the asylum via Milk if you’re lactose intolerant this might not be the article for you.  

I know what you’re thinking where are the cookies?  Well your mistaken, this isn’t a cold (or warm if you are one of those) beverage you enjoy with a handful of cookies.  No this is a symbol of oppression.  This is the man keeping you down.  At least that is what Samantha Diaz the staff writer for the daily49er says.  

Elliot Hamilton at the Daily Wire examines this article and points out the logical irrationality exhibited by Ms.Diaz (assuming of course that Samantha Diaz self identifies as a Ms.) and how drinking milk is just drinking milk and not subscribing to a racist agenda.

And as I see Friday swiftly becoming Saturday I will sign off on this Frenetic Friday.

Catechism


Can anyone keep the law of God perfectly?

    Since the fall, no mere human has been able to keep the law of God perfectly, but consistently breaks it in thought, word, and deed.

    Romans 3:10–12

    None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.

    Catechism 


    What does God require in the ninth and tenth commandments?

      Ninth, that we do not lie or deceive, but speak the truth in love. Tenth, that we are content, not envying anyone or resenting what God has given them or us.

      James 2:8

      If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.

      Movie Review: Logan 



      Producers:Hutch Parker,Simon Kindergarten,Lauren Shuler Donner
      Writer:James Mangold
      Director:James Mangold
      Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen

      First let me say this movie is rated R where most MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) movies are PG-13.  And there are 200 expletives, 40 to 50 uses of the “F” word, violence, brief nudity (no sex), smoking, alcohol use, children in danger and a suggestion of children being tortured.

      And if this bothers you then skip this movie, and just in case you’ve lost you ever loving mind: No don’t take any children to see this movie.

      Now on to the review.  Spoiler alert.  Logan takes place some time in the future.  This isn’t the future where Sentinels fly the skies rounding up mutants.  No this is the future where Professor Xavier suffers from dementia and his powers are out of control so out of control that they can stop people from functioning to the point of death.  This is the future where Logan’s adamantine body is slowly poisoning him to death.  Where Logan is a rent-a-chauffeur trying to scrape enough money together to buy a boat to get the professor as far from humanity as possible.  And this is a future where mutants have been genetically excised from existence.  

      Logan’s nights are filled with driving people to one place from another.  Along with large bottles of whiskey and pain killers.  Logan is old (170), old in face and body .  Every time he uses his claws it causes more pain to him then to the others.  That is if he can get the claw all the way out.  And when he isn’t doing that he is scamming drugs from hospital interns to keep Xavier’s seizures from happening. 

      Then Logan meets Gabriela a nurse who recognizes him as the wolverine and asks for help.  He rudely rejects her and she drives off with a little girl looking back at him.  But this meeting results in a meeting with a man with a bionic hand who claims to know what Logan has been doing.  He hands Logan a card and tells him to call him if he see Gabriela again.

      He does see her again and she offers him enough money for him to buy the boat for Xavier the only catch is she and the girl have to be across the border to Canada from North Dakota.  He leaves with part of the money but when he returns Gabriela is dead and the girl is no where to be found.

      When he returns to Xavier he finds that he and the girl, Laura, have been talking, and Xavier tells Logan that Laura is a lot like him.  This is proven when the man with the bionic hand comes to Logan’s home with similarly enhanced men to take Laura.  Who responds by sprouting adamantine claws from her hands and feet and carnage ensues.

      Logan, Laura, and Xavier go on the run. Logan stops in Las Vegas to get a new car, while there Xavier and Laura watch Shane.  Laura who has never seen a movie and has always been institutionalized gets her first glimpse of what a family is from the movie.

      Later when Logan helps a farmer, who insists on giving them a home cooked meal Laura is again exposed to what a family is supposed to be. But trouble comes to the farmer and Logan, like Alan Ladd in Shane, goes with the farmer to help.  While gone the man with the bionic hand comes back with help, the doctor who created Laura and a clone of Logan.  The clone enters the house slaughtering every one in there while getting Laura and killing Xavier who thinks that the clone is Logan. Logan and the farmer return and Logan gets the girl when the farmer pins the clone to a tree with his dying strength.  Logan and the girl escape in the confusion.

      This isn’t the end of the story.  There is much more.  Logan is the equivalent of DC’s Dark Knight. It is the best movie they have made and it is so different from the rest of the MCU movies that it makes me wonder if I will be happy with any of the other releases. This director has pulled out of the actors a depth of performance that is awe inspiring.  The emotional depth displayed by Stewart and Jackman has to be seen to be believed. This is a great film and to call it just a super hero movie is to miss out completely what they have done here. 

      I give Logan four stars I would have given it more but the amount of expletives made me take back one star.  Go see it adults only.

      Catechism


      What does God require in the sixth, seventh, and eighth commandments?

        Sixth, that we do not hurt, or hate, or be hostile to our neighbor, but be patient and peaceful, pursuing even our enemies with love. Seventh, that we abstain from sexual immorality and live purely and faithfully, whether in marriage or in single life, avoiding all impure actions, looks, words, thoughts, or desires, and whatever might lead to them. Eighth, that we do not take without permission that which belongs to someone else, nor withhold any good from someone we might benefit.

        Romans 13:9

        For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

        Yeah I know I haven’t done a Frenetic Friday for awhile.  I am going to get back into the swing of things now that I am not in a constant job search mode.  Until then a little reminder.
