I watched the first episode of DCs TV-verse Crisis on Infinite Earths. So far a lot of fun. I really liked the cameos - Burt Ward (Robin from the old 60s TV show), Robert Wuhl (from the first Keaton Batman), and even Wil Wheaton (who is of course Wil Wheaton).

I finished the last episode of Crisis on Infinite Earths. It was good, though a bit long, and somewhat confusing in a few places (mainly because I watched the last two episodes out of order for a while, until I figured out that I mixed them up).

I really liked the Supergirl/Batwoman scenes. I would love to see more crossovers of just the two of them. They really fit well together, in spite of the incredible differences in abilities. As people, Kate and Kara really mesh well.

There was a lots of great cameos. Kevin Conroy (who voices Batman in most animation) makes an appearance in the flesh as an older Batman from one of the alternate universes. Brandon Routh reprised his role as Superman from the Bryan Singer superman movie of 2006. While he also continued playing Ray Palmer (The Atom) on Legends of Tomorrow. Ezra Miller (The Flash from the new DC films) made an appearance with the TV version of The Flash. Speaking of which, the old Flash from the 90s TV show also made an appearance as well. Though he has been on the TV Flash for a long time. It was really neat having all these incarnations of the classic characters all being present. Even Lucifer (from the eponymous TV show) turns up.

Speaking of which, I was a little surprised at the ending.

So, I finished Spartacus and overall, it was a good show. I was disappointed in some parts of the ending. I knew not everyone was gonna live, but some of the deaths were just.... indifferent.gif

Just watched an excellent 'old-style' discourse on J.R.R. Tolkien. A breath of fresh air. No unnecessary background music or misplaced dramatics. No visible 'host/commentator' as distracting focal point. Just straight-up reminiscences by people who matter, along with photos, illustrations, etc. Christopher Tolkien appears frequently, as do other Tolkien family members.

I watched the new Nic Cage version of Color Out Of Space today. It was good, much better than I expected. It is updated to the modern era, one of the kids is now female (and is a rather accurate depiction of a Witch for a change), and there are a few other changes. But it sticks mostly to the story. It even starts with a narration of the first paragraph of the story, and ends with the second from last one. I was even delighted to see one character reading The Willows, by Algernon Blackwood. Lovecraft loved that story. He cites it in Supernatural Horror In Literature.

It is a slow burn, psychological piece. Though it does get very John Carpenter Thingish at the end. The movie is filmed in color, and the eponymous Color is basically a purplish pink, rather than a color that does not exist. Because, duh, you cannot film a color that does not exist. But I liked how as the story went on, the farm becomes more brightly colored. Grass becomes purple. Bright red flowers start blooming up the sides of trees, etc...

If you are a Lovecraft fan, and appreciate low-key horror films, you will like it.

This seems the most appropriate thread to report the passing actor Kirik Douglas, age 103.

Aw, how long a life he had! Wow, I remember him as being old when I was young! I've actually seen more of his son in films than him; though.

I think the celebrity death I am dreading the most is Betty White.

Kirk was one of the people who broke the black list by hiring Dalton Trumbo to write Spartacus.

I think the only movie I ever saw him in was some space thing with Farrah Fawcett (the one that was more famous for Farrah's left nipple showing for .25 of a second than it was for any of the acting, plot, or special effects).

Saturn 3! I saw that one in the theater! It was bad.

He was awesome in Spartacus. I loved him in this one movie with Burt Lancaster called Tough Guys, about two old ex-cons fresh out of prison who go on one last heist.

It was so bad that it actually got a cult following around the town I grew up in, every time Farrah's nipple came on screen the whole theater would hoot and cheer, lol.

Younger folk seem to remember Douglas as Spartacus, if they remember him at all. I prefer Paths of Glory, set during WW1. Here's a short video from a series on the work of Stanley Kubrick. As such, it features Paths, but is not Douglas-Centric.

I remember Paths of Glory. I thought it was a little heavy-handed with the message that war is bad. Yeah, I get it Stanley, you don't need to use a sledgehammer.

Finished watch this YouTube video a bit before my brother arrived:

The Burning Times: The History of Witches Part 1

If I remember, I'll watch Part 2 sometime tomorrow, or maybe right before bedtime tonight if my bro retires before me.
