I still believe a man can fly…

21 Dec

So… I am going to say something that might be considered controversial… Henry Cavill has never played Superman.

And he is not my generations Superman. I lean towards Christopher Reeve or Tom Welling for that title.

However I believe that Henry could do an excellent job if given the chance and thus was looking forward to the announcement in October that he was coming back to the role. I would love to see him be given a Superman script and see him breathe life into it.

Thus it was disappointing last week to hear that he was once again out of the role.

Let me go back a little and explain myself. Zack Snyder has never written a Superman script (and he should never touch anything comic book related. Fight me). He wrote summer blockbusters. And as such, they were fine. Heck, I am watching Man of Steel with a therapy group right now and they love it. None of them have ever read a comic book (prison inmates… most of them believe that their reputation was more important than doing something “silly” when they were kids). I am dying during the group, keeping busy with paperwork. But they love it. That’s the blockbuster aspect. But soon the movie will be over and we’ll talk about why it’s not a Superman story… Sups can’t kill being the biggest thing- that makes him no better than humans and he has to be what we strive for or there’s no point in him being our hero. Even the guys get that.

Don’t get me wrong- I adore James Gunn and I am excited to see what he and Peter Safran have in mind for the DCU.

But I think it was pretty shitty of Warner Brothers/DC to allow the Henry Cavill announcement and then days later announce new heads to the DCU, who seem to cleaning house to develop a solid base for DC. Now that Cavill is out, though, what does that mean for Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Zack Levi and even Dwayne Johnson? Well… as of yesterday Dwayne is out, or at least on hold.

What I want is solid scripts and direction. But the casts have been very well done (minus that first Suicide Squad film that we won’t talk about). I want that Batgirl movie.

And I want to see Henry Cavill play Superman.

I spent some time Inside of You

29 Aug

So… I am not a fan of podcasts. I know. You are wondering how that could be. But honestly, it’s the talking heads things… it bores me. Doesn’t matter the topic. It’s why I have trouble listening to talk radio/NPR. I need to be doing something. When I was forced to listen to audio recordings while studying, I did so while gardening (pulling weeds) or going for walks. Something. And yes, I know there are a lot of podcasts that you can watch on youtube etc, but it’s still boring. If I’m gonna watch something, I want it to be actiony or funny, or colorful or something! I can’t even stand watching talk shows anymore. Puts me right to sleep.

My Disney+ catch up, part 2

21 Aug

Last time I talked about my recent viewing and catch up on the Disney+ Star Wars shows. But that left us with quite a few Marvel related shows to talk about. For my sanity, I won’t blather on about the Netflix Marvel shows. I think we’ve already talked about them here somewhere. And if not, we should’ve but that boat has probably sailed. Or not, who knows. I’m the all powerful one here. Mwahahaha.

Sorry, I was up late last night watching Doctor Strange and I think the multiverses made me a little cray cray.

Anyways, assume spoilers from here on… Continue reading

So I finally caught up in Disney+

4 Jul

Last year some time a lovely pal gave me access to their Disney+ account and I started watching the Marvel shows. But as happens… life happened and I only got through 1 and a little more before I returned to my binges of The Simpsons and Family Guy, etc. Bless that friend for the opportunity but I needed a real kick in the pants to actually sit down and watch things. Which happened recently as I got my own account and eventually shared with my family.

So I wanted to take a few minutes to jot down my thoughts and reactions to some of the shows. Basically everything is at least 6 months (minus Obi-Wan Kenobi) old, so expect there to be spoilers within. Also, this is going to be fairly random- stream of consciousness reactions here.

A Couple Rambley Thoughts on Buffy’s 25th

12 Mar

So I wanted to say a few things about Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s recent 25th anniversary (holy crap, 25?!?)…

Smallville is still my happy place

18 Nov

Recently, Smallville celebrated it’s 20th anniversary. I was inspired to spend that weekend (one where I happened to be under the weather) vegging on the couch rewatching the series. I initially decided that I would jump around, skipping episodes, but then I got caught in a season I hadn’t watched in a long time and it’s been a full binge ever since. Let’s just assume there be spoilers here for anyone who hasn’t watched the series… Continue reading

A Quick Rambling- HELD

14 Apr

The first thing I need to say is this- I am damn proud of you, Jill. So… this whole post may be a little biased because Ms. Jill Awbrey is my favorite daughter, friend, and the little sis I never had. Damn proud of you, kid.



Now that that’s out of the way, I hate spoilers Continue reading

I have to confess…

24 Mar

I have a confession. It isn’t going to be news if you follow us on Twitter but… I have an obsession with Tyler Hoechlin’s eyebrows.

They communicate. They express everything… I am desperate to learn their language and be one with the brows. Continue reading

I watched something that made me cry and I loved every tear

6 May

Let me start off by saying that over the last few years I have become someone who prefers cartoons and comic book based programs over most anything else. Sure, I know there is a ton of amazing TV out there and I have a vague interest in a lot of it but I also work 13 hour days at a prison. I don’t want to deal with cop shows, medical dramas, or real life. I want to watch superheroes save the day. My mom calls it “popcorn for the mind” and I’m totally OK with that.

BUT… every now and then I have to broaden my horizons. Continue reading
