So being the observent group of individuals that you are you’ve probably notice that it has been awhile since I have posted a movie review.
Well there is a simple reason for this, most of the current crop of movies don’t interest me or are crap. Or skubulon if you prefer a biblical term.
However, that doesn’t preclude me from reviewing older movies something that I have done from time to time. Especially movies from the “golden age” of Hollywood. Which is a completely subjective since my “golden age” probably doesn’t correspond to a professional movie reviewer.
Also I have decided to do a few single sentence reviews every now and then such as:
Of the second season runs of the Netflix/Marvel franchise Daredevil has consistently been the best of all of them and has continued that into the third season.
Now this saves space, lets me be pithy something desired in a blog author or so I have been told.
And with that in mind another bit of pithiness. I noticed that Netflix has the four gospel accounts ( Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John for those of you who go to Joel Osteen’s church) each being a word for word telling from the accounts with a video more or less acting out the words. These are rated TV-14 which I find odd. What is in them that suggests anyone under fourteen needs parental guidance, it could be the brutality of the crucifixion, and the whipping. But judging from what I saw in John I find that hard to believe. Perhaps, it is the words themselves that prompt the rating? Have to think about that.
Lastly I, and most of the internet no doubt, learned that Stan Lee died today. I can’t comment on the status of this man’s soul as he stands now before the righteous Judge. No one can. However, it is worth saying that many a lonely day in my youth was brightened by reading the adventures of Captain America, Hulk, and others. And it was Stan Lee and artists such as Jack “The King” Kirby, Steve Ditko, and John Romita that brought a little joy into my life. Excelsior!
