🎧 Listened to: The Incomparable | We’re the Magnificent Seven (Episode 430)

I can’t believe that Vangelis’ soundtrack for Blade Runner wasn’t picked.

Iris is certainly a child of her time. Today she was playing with an old Roku remote. She was pretending that it was her phone and while she did press some of its buttons she mostly spoke to Siri on her phone, giving Siri instructions how to drive the imaginary car that she was sitting in.

🎧 Listened to: H.I. #104: Fruitbooting — Hello Internet

I had already listened to this episode when it was first released but at that time I hadn’t watched Solo: A Star Wars Story so I skipped that part of the episode. Now that I have watched the movie I went back and listened to the episode.

I enjoyed Grey and Brady’s discussion about it and I’m glad they more or less liked the movie. I agree with them that it probably is the second best new Star Wars movie.

🎞 Watched: Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Since this is a Star Wars movie and today was the first time I watched it I’m probably contractually obligated to write something long but that’ll have to wait for another day. For now, suffice to say it was a really enjoyable movie and I’m looking forward to seeing it again. Alden Ehrenreich – the guy that plays Han – is just perfect for the role!

Snoozefest.

🎞 Watched: Thor: The Dark World

Yet another Marvel movie. This one was definitely or the sillier side and parts of it felt really bad but as a whole still quite entertaining.

Just started watching Thor: The Dark World and I must say, the Thor movies are surprisingly entertaining.

🎞 Watched: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Another highly entertaining movie. The spy thriller elements are more interesting than the action scenes.

🎞 Watched: The Avengers

Now this was a movie that absolutely benefited from me watching a bunch of other MCU movies prior to it. I originally watched The Avengers a few years ago, having only watched the first Iron Man beforehand. I was mildly entertained by The Avengers then, but nothing more. At times it seemed really silly and I didn’t feel engaged.

Fast-forward to yesterday when I was supposed to watch this for a few minutes during my lunch break. Since I had watched most of the preceding MCU movies, I suddenly felt myself caring about the characters and even understanding them. I cared about Captain America, a character that I’d never given a damn about before. I cared about Coulson because I’d seen him in multiple movies. I even understood where Thor came from. And I really cared about Erik Selveig, for more reasons that simply him being played by Stellan Skarsgård.

The result of this was that I blew off work for more than two hours and actually watched the entire movie in one sitting and I had a blast. Two and a half hours of solid entertainment!

Since the election in Sweden a couple of weeks ago there are a lot of local, regional and even the state government where there’s uncertainty about who’s going to rule. A lot of coalition attempts are tried and fails.

This week however, at least one of the local governments in my region is putting that aside to prioritise more urgent matters. The yearly moose hunt.

It actually think that is a sign of good health for the Swedish democracy.

Very interesting discussion. Even if you don’t agree with Murray’s points, he is always a very interesting voice. In this show I particularly like the discussion of gun ownership. (Around 1:34:00)

🎞 Watched: Iron Man 2

Another entertaining Marvel movie. Not great by any means, I especially didn’t like neither the character Ivan Vanko not Mickey Rourke’s performance. Also the Iron Man fight scenes is kind of boring but the rest is fun.

🎞 Watched: Thor

This was definitely one of those movies that I wrote off as complete garbage prior to watching. However The Incomparable’s Summer of Marvel really opened my eyes to the Thor movies, so I gave it a shot and it was actually an okay movie. Not as good as Captain America, but still a lot of fun and I’m glad I watched it.

🎞 Watched: Captain America: The First Avenger

I’ve not really gotten into the MCU movies before. All I’ve watched prior to this one was the first Iron Man and the first two Avengers movies and while I liked Iron Man, the Avengers movies did not impress me. However, after The Incomparable’s Summer of Marvel I felt like I might have been missing out on some entertaining movies and since Netflix has added some of the early MCU movies I decided to give this one a chance.

Turns out, I really liked it. It’s far from a perfect movie but it was really entertaining and in contrast to Logan it was fun and uplifting. After seeing this movie I actually have some appreciation for the character of Captian America who previously has been more or less unknown to me.

Also, I’m always up for watching a movie where Tommy Lee Jones gets to be as Tommy Lee Jones as possible.

Sometimes I listen to The Incomparable talk about movies that I haven’t watched. Equilibrium is one such movie and the way it’s described here makes me think that it’s such an interesting train wreck that I just have to watch it.
