The New Mutants

Directed by Josh Boone. With Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga. Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. The much maligned, much delayed, and the unfortunate finale to the Fox / Marvel comic book series of mutant movies has finally been released. I agree with many that this is not a knock out of the park as the final swan song for the x-men franchise, but it was never intended to be such a thing. If you’re big into the...

Bloodshot

Directed by Dave Wilson. With Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell. Ray Garrison, a slain soldier, is re-animated with superpowers.

Buy On Amazon!

I got a fitbit charge 4

So far, it’s perfectly meh. Naturally, I do have some complaints: It only uses spotify, no other media controls, which feels arbitrary and offensive.  I’m not signing up for yet another music service when I have nearly 2,000 mp3s that I legally own The weather applet is completely broken.  I already have weather on my phone, so this doesn’t really matter, but if you advertise the function, might as well be able to use it, right? Alarms are configured on device now and not on your phone, which is a change for the worse considering what hoops you have to...

Payless Towing in Tallahassee

These assholes nearly rammed me off the road, passed in a no pass zone, then tailgated the next car up that was ahead of me, all so they could get stopped at the same damn light that we were all going to be stopped at. They’re obviously a shithole company, so they’re going on my blacklist.

Bone

9 book series published by Scholastic in 2004-2009. A simple story of a family that was chased out of their home town due to the incompetent greed of their older brother. They end up in “the valley” where they manage to trigger the literal apocalypse. It’s a story that starts slow and cute, but ends with dragons waking up to eat the world and the lord of locus trying to do evil stuff at the same time. I had originally purchased and read this story back when it was being released in black and white floppies, then after it was...

X-Men: Magneto Testament

Magneto Testament is a 5-issue miniseries published by Marvel that is focused on the Magneto’s origin story during the Nazi regime. I bought this years and years ago, read it, then put it on a shelf. I’ve moved a couple times, and redone how my books are organized a few times more, then this last weekend decided that I was going to sell off the books that I haven’t even thought of in years. “Magneto Testament” was in that rather large pile, I couldn’t remember the first thing about it, so I gave it a go. It’s a dark book,...

Prescription: Murder

Directed by Richard Irving. With Peter Falk, Gene Barry, Katherine Justice, William Windom. A psychiatrist uses a patient he is having an affair with to help him kill his wife, but his perfect alibi may come apart at the hands of a seemingly befuddled LAPD lieutenant. A 2 hours long pilot movie that felt at first more like a James Bond film than a murder mystery, part of that I suppose is the setting itself, which is the late ’60’s. Peter Falk is super young here compared to when I know him from the later episodes of the show (never...
