Hey, I didn't know if you knew or not (you probably do) but I discovered recently that the Club Scum announcer on Hobgoblins voices Cosmo and I thought you would find that interesting so Happy Halloween I guess.

Hi it's me Hawth, I understand you're into comics and anima? Ever hear of a lady called Lynda Barry? She wrote "Ernie Pooks Comeek" she got a new release of her greatest comics called the greatest Marlys book. She draws like a kid BUT it's the dialog of the kids that's totally "kid's speak" I like to call it. It's uncanny how she remembers how kids would say things, at least in a working class neiborhood.

Servo sleeps with a nuclear bomb under his bed? Don't watch this one often enough. I think Servo has some real badass mad points for that. Like forming a town around an active nuclear warhead and calling it Magaton in Fallout 3. But so what. I sleep on one all the time. No big deal. XD

I found the article about Bridget Nelson inspiring. I have read comments on the old MST3K Usenet group of how the series positively affected some of the posters. I find that laughter is very uplifting and the show was brilliant at providing laughter. Anyone care to share their stories of how it has affected you?

Fingal the mass murderer

So, Fingal gains control of the computer and uses it to disrupt global weather, seemingly for no reason but to mess with the Chairman. Dopey Computer Voice and Chairman Fat say that Fingal caused floods, heat waves, typhoons, blizzards.

Let's assume that in the sci-fi future of this movie, Earth's population has exploded and people live in dense mega-cities. (Since Fingal himself is supposedly from "BosNyWash," this is a good assumption.) So...how many people died as a result of him messing around like that? I would guess millions, at the absolute minimum. Probably closer to a billion people would have just straight-up died, not to mention the billions more who were wounded, inconvenienced, bankrupted, etc. So basically Fingal becomes the most devastating terrorist in world history just to try and get Chairman Fat to leave him alone.

Off-topic: Seen any movies without bots in front of them lately?

I took the day off from being jobless to watch some movies. Have three short reviews, courtesy of a guy who wishes his job was to review movies.

I started my day with It Comes At Night---I'd seen the positive critic reviews and negative audience reaction on Rotten Tomatoes and wanted to know what's up. The movie was marketed much differently than what it actually was---and while that's a factor, I think there are other reasons the audience hated it. It looks great. It's acted very well, especially the main father and son. It achieved what it sets out to accomplish, which is to make you feel absolutely miserable. It Comes At Night is a slow-burning, frequently boring, psychological horror that wants nothing more than leave its audience feeling despair. It's a bleak, nihilistic film that left an awful taste in my mouth. On a technical level, it was a good movie, hence the critical reception. But I left the movie feeling like nothing was worth anything.

To get the taste out of my mouth, I looked at the marquee. Wonder Woman was the next film I'd watch that was playing. I had major trepidations about it---despite positive reception to it, it was still as DC movie. As a fan of DC comics, their current franchise (starting with Man of Steel) has left me extremely unhappy. Man of Steel and Batman v Superman were epic---in terms of of how much I hated them. I won't get into that, but I will say that I had no hope for Wonder Woman going it. That changed quickly, and, except for some really awful CGI, I loved WW. It did her source material and character justice, (which is something I can't say for my favorite guy, Superman, in his recent movies). While WW had bits of Zack Snyder influence, like the poor CGI action (and a very questionable story credit), this movie had a very different feel to it than previous DC entries. It was brighter, more cheerful, with a lead you could root for. Gal Godot and Chris Pine were great, and the scene of Wonder Woman going up against a machine gun is one I won't forget soon. WW is the female-driven superhero movie we've been lacking.

To finish my day, I watched a movie not in theaters---The Gift (2015) written directed, and starring Joel Edgerton, who coincidentally was the best part of It Comes At Night. The Gift is a psychological thriller the likes you don't see often. Some of it reminded me of Mientras Duerme (aka Sleep Tight, an excellent Spanish psych thriller), but there were plenty of twists and turns and amazing acting from the three leads. It was a captivating watch, and my heartiest recommendation of the three movies I saw today, especially if you're a genre fan.

It Comes At Night: 2/5
Wonder Woman: 4/5
The Gift: 4.5/5
