The Hobbit & The Expanse

During the COVID lockdown, and the long wait for my trade training, there has been little for me to do other than watch TV, and try to find the discipline to either workout or clean the house….. So naturally I’ve been watching more TV than I really should be. The long hours of streaming have … Continue reading The Hobbit & The Expanse

Overthinking It: Rescue Armour

One of the things my wife and I like to do when we’re looking for something to put on for noise is head to the Marvel section of Disney+, pick a number, scroll over that many, and hit play. Yesterday that landed us on Iron Man 3. I had forgotten the scene when Tony’s house … Continue reading Overthinking It: Rescue Armour

Creation is a Force of Will.

One of my absolute favourite super heroes is Green Lantern. For those that don’t know Green Lantern is basically a space cop. The Green Lantern Corps is an organization that patrols the 3600 sectors of space (2 GL’s per sector) and keeps the peace. The fact that there are 7200 Green Lanterns is one of … Continue reading Creation is a Force of Will.

My Top 5 “Hero Shots”

Anticipation, by itself, it neither a good or bad thing. Anticipation for a dentist appointment isn’t likely to be enjoyed, but anticipation for something you’ve been looking forward to can be a great feeling. Like a great movie reveal, or “hero shot”. "Hero Shot": an establishing scene in a movie, often (but not always) done … Continue reading My Top 5 “Hero Shots”

A Good Year is not JUST a Good Year….

Recently we watched Soul on Disney+, which was a fantastic movie. It’s a really deep movie too. For a guy like me, that is searching desperately for something in his life, but is unsure what it is, the movie hits pretty hard. Without spoiling anything, the main plot is about a guy looking for meaning, … Continue reading A Good Year is not JUST a Good Year….

Overthinking It: Robin’s Suit in BvS

My wife and I had a big Batman movie marathon recently. I didn’t think to start with the original Batman movie from 1989, I actually forgot I owned it to be honest. I don’t own any of the other Batman movies until we get to Batman Begins, which made me feel a bit old when … Continue reading Overthinking It: Robin’s Suit in BvS

Overthinking It: Over-Sized Movie Construction

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love movies. I have no problem suspending my disbelief, overlooking problems, and just enjoying myself, but every now and then while watching something an idea will pop into my head, and I just gotta write it down. Which leads to this episode of "Over-Thinking It". … Continue reading Overthinking It: Over-Sized Movie Construction

Overthinking it: Tony Stark in Iron Man 2

I re-watched Iron Man 2 the other day, and was thinking about the scene where Tony Stark sets up the particle accelerator in his house to invent a new element; and I was thinking about the backlash about the scene. I liked it. I am a Journeyman Cabinetmaker, Red Seal Certified; which means that (theoretically) … Continue reading Overthinking it: Tony Stark in Iron Man 2

“Down to Earth”

I love shows about nature and space. Learning about our planet and others; about space exploration, and the technology that does it. Its addicting to me. I've spent whole weekends watching everything I could find on Netflix. I binge watched Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, and the BBC Planet Earth series. I've watched shows on the … Continue reading “Down to Earth”

Justice League: Snyder vs Whedon

Zack Snyder (L) left directing Justice League and Joss Whedon (R) took over for him. Seems like Joss Whedon has taken a bit of a beating on social media and in the news the last few days. Most of the talk is due to hype of the Snyder Cut of Justice League being made and … Continue reading Justice League: Snyder vs Whedon
