Saw Captain Marvel, it was good, better than average Marvel, but not the best (that would be Captain America). The character was fine. I think they may have given her too much power, why Superman makes for silly movies (I realize that is not Marvel).

I tried to watch Thor last night, but it was unwatchable. I fell asleep.

It's hard to watch groundbreaking movies if you don't remember what the ground looked like before they were made. You have to be walked through it to understand.

I finally watched "Captain Marvel." It was cool, but it would have been better if it was about a guy.

Maybe a fourteen year-old who turns into Captain Marvel.

I've heard good things about Spider-Man:_Into_the_Spider-Verse

But what has my attention right now is Blender 2.80. I can't think of a point upgrade that has changed a software package more since.... never. Blender used to be a 3D modeling and rendering program with an annotation tool called Greasepaint. Greasepaint has grown into a complete 2D animation tool that exists in the 3D space.

...and it has the shader tree workspace collapsed to a pane with 10 sliders
...and they've ditched right-click to select for left-click like the rest of the world
...and there's a new rendering engine EEVEE
...and there's a video editor so you can make whole movies
...and you can transfer Kinect rigging to Blender rigging and make avatars dance like a puppet
...and all the stuff like Cycles rendering and OpenVDB is still there, plus Filmic Blender is now standard!

If I can claw my way up the learning curve (it's steep and there's no top in sight) I might be able to produce CFD analysis of my belly tanker and motor home designs.

I liked "Into the Spider-Verse," but it took a while to become accustomed to the style. It seemed the framerate was too low.

I watched "Paddington 2" with a friend. She enjoyed it. I had a nice nap. This was the same friend that insists on telling me that "Ant Man and the Wasp" was boring, but she had a nice nap.

I liked Paddington, I just was not going to stay awake for it.

Enjoy the time it left... Before politically correctness creates a gay Superman or trans Shazan...


They already made pressure to a Dr Who became a woman.

What did you think of Blade Runner 2049, and the romance between the cyborg and the hologram? I watched it again last week (DVD from the city library) and it seemed tediously slow.

Alita: Battle Angel topped $400 million (twice) and it's on track for the sequel.

I haven't made it through Blade Runner 2049 yet. Started it like 3 times. Then again, the original is slow too.

Saw my favorite documentary over the weekend: The Dawn Wall. Tommy Caldwell is the embodiment of masculinity as far as I can tell.
