Currently doing my annual viewing of the film Sleepy Hollow starring Christina Ricci and Johnny Depp. I watch it every year on Halloween as for me, this film is the epitome of what the holiday is about: spooky fun!

I just finished watching a very fun B movie called Survivor. Since there are a lot of movies called that, it is the one made in 2014, with Kevin Sorbo in a supporting role. It also has the main character from the Mythica movies in a supporting role as well, which delighted me to no end. As I said, it is a fun, low-budget sci-fi movie about the crew of a space ship that crash lands on a planet, and runs afoul of the Raiders and Goblins that live there. There is lots of action and adventure, and a really fun ride.

The main character is your basic hot chick, and a lesbian to boot. Of course they killed off her girlfriend. Because you got to Bury Your Gays. Then again, pretty much everyone else dies too, so that might be too harsh.

It felt a lot like a video game, a Tomb Raider game in particular. There is a lot of running, and climbing up cliffs, even some semi-parkour when the Raider gang is chasing the protagonist through a warren of rocky outcroppings. When she gets her hands on a bow, well... But none of that detracts from the fun of the movie. It is just an observation.

UFC 244: Masvidal vs Diaz.

As much as I love the Diaz Brothers, I’m gonna side with the Miami Druglord on this one. While the pressure boxing / BJJ of the Diaz’ holds a special place in my heart, Masvidal’s slick boxing and punishing Muay Thai kicks’ll just rip Nate apart, particularly if Masvidal aims his kicks on Nate’s notoriously skinny legs, which is made further vulnerable due to his bladed boxer’s stance.

All in all, this is gonna be a violent 5-round war. I don’t see Nate KOing Masvidal with his attrition-style punches and it’ll take a substantial amount of fight IQ for Masvidal to knock Nate out, the Diaz Brothers’ infamous granite chin and endurance notwithstanding.

Ah, combat sports. We don’t deserve you.

Watched El Camino tonight. It was a bit of a let down; I loved the flashbacks for the nostalgic value; but the continuous flipping back and forth from present to past and back was not worthy of Vince Gilliam's writing abilities. He could have done better with this sequel. The western showdown was trite and immersion breaking. The ending was a complete dud.

Jesse's dialogue and role was good; but lacked the Jesse personality we all know and love. I read that the script didn't have a single "Bitch!" in it; and that Jesse ad-libbed the only one place he said it in the entire movie. When asked about it, Vince admitted he'd forgotten Jesse was famous for saying that and hadn't written it. WHAT? How could he write a sequal for Jesse without remembering that? Aaron Paul's acting was superb as usual; though. He even helped the script he was given by trying to inject Jesse into it despite Vince's failure to bring him to life again.

Even Walter White's part was bland; but as usual Bryan Cranston acted the living hell out of what he had to work with. The writing for his scenes felt a bit flat; as if they just stuck him in there as a novelty but had no real purpose for his role there.

Come on, Vince! We love you, and know you can do better than this!

I think Vince fell into the fatal flaw of all sequels = you can never go back; it just never works as well as it did the first time (when all the magic was there).

If he makes another sequel; I hope he remembers the character's personalities when writing their roles.

Spent much of today watching videos from the YouTube channel of a professional painting 'restorer.' Very entertaining and informative. I'll link one. The painting in this video is actually in pretty good shape, compared to many of the paintings he deals with. About all it needs is very minor repair of damaged/missing paint, cleaning, and varnish replacement. The frame, on the other hand, receives a more heavy-duty treatment, in good part to undo changes made during a previous restoration.

In this video, on the other hand, the painting itself needs a hella lot of restoration.
