    The Adventures of Tintin -- this was fun! I've never read the comics



    Oh.
    My.
    Days.


    The Tintin movie was fine but the comics are so much better it's not even funny you've got a world of awesomeness ahead of you if you fancy it.


    You know what that means! Time to put this 23-book box set I found on Amazon for $157 onto my Wishlist and look at it wistfully over the years w/o ever pulling the trigger, like I do with the Peanuts and Sandman collections.

    Blindspotting -- pretty good. I didn't love it, but I'm still thinking about it, which is probably just as good. It swings in and out of predictability as it goes along, plot-wise, but performances are very good, it's adventurous (not nearly so much as Sorry To Bother You, but there are occasional heightened moments and they all work), and its characters are nuanced and complicated (these characters would be very very easy to get wrong). It's also very funny, but takes issues of identity, privilege, and gentrification very seriously even while it's being funny.


    Pacific Rim: Uprising -- not very good. I don't know why. It just feels weirdly empty, even though it's not necessarily as outright dumb as it could have been. It takes so many shortcuts it feels like a CliffsNotes version of itself. At the same time, however contradictory, it feels like you're waiting for something to happen most of the time.


    Older stuff I watched:
    Murder On the Orient Express -- the Albert Finney version. This ruled. Can't imagine seeing Finney do Poirot and thinking "You know who would do this justice? Kenneth Branagh!"


    The Adventures of Tintin -- this was fun! I've never read the comics but I caught on to the tone and characters pretty quick, and it was a solid adventure w/ multiple cool set pieces. There's a chase scene near the end that is so well choreographed and exciting!


    Scanners -- hadn't seen this since I was very little, so remembered nothing (aside from the head explosion gif). Goofy fun with a few lulls, but it brings the body horror in such extravagant ways.

    Also, that brings me to: the Criterion Channel is live! I've started the noir series and "My Name Is Julia Ross" was so good.

    Yah, I think it's clear the GOP -- down to its voters -- will absolve anything for power.


    But don't discount how useless establishment Dems can be. I mean...



    This is the Dem House Majority Leader, on par or second in power to Speaker Pelosi. Even setting aside whether impeachment is a good or bad tack, how does this statement show leadership in opposition to Trump/the GOP/corruption/any of it? Does it say anything? It's the opposite of rhetoric. A black hole. These idiots, even after '18 elections, think the Dem candidate will be running against Russia and not Donald Trump and the GOP machine.

    Maybe the reasons Targs do incest in the first place is to maintain the fire immunity, and that origin has just been lost to custom as the generations have passed?

    @pg: Yup that sounds like the likeliest reason.

    Yeah, normally I look at a youtube "commentary" clip run time at 45 mins and go "Nope", but I couldn't stop watching and - quite frankly - geeking out.

    I think the main reason I don't get in trouble so often any more is because hardly anyone ever disagrees with me about anything on the DB. This is a very liberal forum these days. It always has been, but it hasn't always been so...absolute. I mean gawd, Bubba voted for Bernie Sanders. He and Bent used to be in the conservative wing of the DB. We also had Gem, who was very religious but ...

    I think the ban lasted for 6 months, when Hetan decided to lift it. I posted in the Inn every now and then after that, but I really do prefer the DB. I actually used to get in trouble a lot on the DB too, particularly in the religion forum, where we had some epic flamewars.

    Anyway, I got banned. Apt (who was a mod at the time!) told me it was a permaban, so I decided I had nothing to lose by registering alt accounts to continue the debate I was having with the mods. According to Imperial Historian, he only temp-banned me, but I didn't get the email on that because I was too busy making new emails to make alt accounts. But the alt accounts led to actual per...

    The Wild West thing was totally true, which is why it struck me as incredibly odd and unfair when a mod chastised me for going off-topic. So I protested, which led us further off topic. It wasn't random or I might not have protested; this was a culmination of months of being harassed by mods for this and that, so it especially pissed me off that they were making up rules on the spot for me.

    I don't tweet about WoT much these days. But whatever, I'm Theresa Gray on Facebook. If you're not one of those keeping-it-separate people, add me?
