  1. Just recently finished Wayne Reinagel's final book to his Pulp Heroes trilogy, Pulp Heroes: Sanctuary Falls. Still in the process of determining what I'll read next. But as it stands Edgar Rice Burroughs or Clark Ashton Smith are high on the list.
  2. Just got back from seeing the Wonder Woman film. First off I need to admit that I am not up on the history of the character as portrayed in the comics as I am with other characters. But I have to say that I did enjoy this film. Great characters and a good story. Did feel that the main boss battle went on a little too long, and the villain exposition was a little preachy. Other then those two factors this was the DC hero movie I've been waiting for since Nolan's Batman films. No angst, just a direct determination to make the world a better place.
  3. Asatru
  4. Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 I enjoyed it and thought it was a lot of fun. But be warned. This is a different film from the first, multiple stories and deeper insight into the various characters. So some people may find it a bit slow and boring.
  5. How is it? I've been tempted to read it after catching a few episodes of the series.
  6. With the current season now well underway, here is my current list of favorite programs; Ash vs Evil Dead The Walking Dead Last Week Tonight: With John Oliver Supergirl The Flash The Arrow Legends of Tomorrow The Big Bang Theory Designated Survivor Forged in Fire Real Time with Bill Maher
  7. Dr Strange I thought it was an excellent introduction to the character. Also a good film for introducing the mystical aspects of the Marvel Movie Universe. There were a couple of clunky plot points that could have been smoothed over. But anyone who is a fan of previous Marvel films should, in my opinion, take the time to check this one out.
  8. There was no option for either 'Other', or 'None of the Above.' So I was unable to vote in the poll. If I had to label my denomination, I don't believe that I could. I read the Bible, determine what I personally find comforting, and follow those dictates which I can follow with a clear conscience.
  9. Sometimes. More and more films have either a extra scene in the middle or at the end of the credits. And I would hate to miss those. Other times there might be an actor in a minor role and I want to know who that person was in order to look for them in other films. Finally, some films show out-takes and bloopers during the closing credits, and I hate to say this, but they can be more entertaining then the entire film.
  10. Current favorites include; The Flash Arrow Killjoys Dark Matter Gotham Looking forward to the following new shows; Fear The Walking Dead Supergirl Legends of Tomorrow
  11. I've been a fan of the series for several years now. And while the quality of individual episodes can vary wildly, I have to say that that I have never been disappointed by any single actor playing the Doctor. Last night BBCA started showing a "Best Of" run. The started with 'Blink' and, 'The Waters of Mars'. Both, imo, two excellent episodes. They will be continuing this every Saturday night up to the start of the new season on Sept. 19.
  12. The Man from Uncle I was honestly surprised at how much I loved this film. A great homage to the spy thrillers of the 60's. Both leads did an excellent job of showing two men approaching the same problem from two different view points. And I love the beautiful use of the Italian countryside and vintage clothing. If it has one flaw I would say that it is the film leans a little too much toward the style of what it is trying to be, and not quite enough action. But I do hope that it does well enough to have a sequel. Oh, Hugh Grant, imo, steals the film.
  13. I've been a fan since a friend of mine loaned me the first season on dvd. I went out bought the 2nd and 3rd seasons before I even finished the 1st. I enjoy the interaction between the primary characters, the begrudging respect that Sherlock and Mycroft have for each other, and how the series has updated and modernized the stories, while keeping the original flavor intact.
