Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Easiest my favorite day of the year. I love what it symbolizes and I hate how it's largely ignored. Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful holiday and one I will always cherish. I'm so thankful for every moment of my life and what God's given me.

My family, my friends and all the many blessings I've received in my lifetime. give me more than enough to be thankful for!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY EVERYONE!!!

Cult of Chucky Review

 
Now that it's been over a month since the movie's been out, I can finally give me SPOILER review.

I've watched Child's Play a couple of times back in the day and always enjoyed them. I thought "Bride" and "Seed" of Chucky were below par but with "Curse" I thought the series had gotten back on track.

And then this one came out....

I'm not saying it's bad, it's just...confusing. The plot makes no sense and we really aren't given a reason why Chucky went through with the whole thing in the first place. It ends on a "cliffhanger" which means another installment is in the works. I'll see it but I hope they do a better job at explaining the story.

For the good stuff, the original actor who played "Billy" in the first 3 movies is back and has more screen time than the previous movie's cameo. With all the effort they go through trying to keep the story in continuity with the others it's disappointing they chose not to tighten the story up in this one.

Basically, there are several "Chucky's" because the doll has finally found a way to "copy" himself on to others. We're told he picked it up in a "Voo-doo for Dummies" book (which is funny) but that's really all they ever say about it. Andy is captured but Chucky but not killed...though that was his plan earlier, Chucky also wants to kill the girl from the last movie but spares her too because it was all "part of the plan" though previous scenes contradict that. It feels like someone wrote one half of the script while the other half was written bye someone who skimmed through the first part and made up his on ending before checking if it made any sense.

Either way it's still on Netflix so if you're board and want to check it out go ahead. If you never saw anything after Child's Play 3, you're good to go ahead and not get involved.

Dark Phoenix Saga Review

Amazon gave me a free digital trade paperback a few months ago and I didn't know what to pick because all the comics available were Marvel. So I went with this series. I'd heard so much about it and have seen it played out in the movies and cartoon series, I thought it's be neat to read the actually comic from where all these stories originated.

And....it was different. Kinda underwhelming considering what all other stories have been made about it. Not a single telling of this story comes close to what is portrayed in the comic. In a few short issues, Jean Grey turns into Dark Phoenix and 3 issues later, "dies"

I wonder how this story got to be so popular for fans? Nothing about it screams "groundbreaking" of "epic"

The Hellfire club is the main enemy responsible for Jean Grey's transformation, but they're nothing but a bunch of high class people living in 17th century clothing, which explains why no one ever copied the story from the comic. That's right folks, the movies and cartoon did it BETTER!

Anyway, glad I got a chance to read it, now I can further confirm DC comics are much better than Marvel.

Weeks to months, months to years

I can't believe we're already closing in on another month. I can't believe how fast the entire year has gone by for that matter!

I remember when I was fresh out of high school I complained to an older guy I worked with at the time that the days always seem to drag by.

He told me something I'll never forget. He said that the older you get the faster time flies. Days blow by at first, then weeks, followed by months and before you know it, years have passed.

I didn't really catch his meaning but I do now. Days, weeks and months seem to fly by and though I'm not quite up to watching the years fly by I can only imagine it wouldn't be long.

To quote Ferris Beuller "Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once and a while, you might miss it."

Just some food for thought.

The Meat Mountain

 Saw this at Arby's and couldn't resist.
 It looks disgusting and something out of a horror film. The lady said no one had yet to finish one that she'd seen.
Until that night when I took that sucker down!!!

Arby's may have "the meats" but I now have....the "meat" sweats!

Have a good weekend everybody!

Buccee's

 A while back Megan and I were driving thru Texas and we came across the rest stop/ gas station called Buccee's.
 Home of the "Beaver Bites"......yep.
 This place was huge.
 And carried lots of stuffed beavers.
 Ever wanted a beaver for a pillow? Have I got a deal for you!
 Beaver balls. Weird in more ways than one.
 Giant beaver.
 I'm afraid to ask what's on this CD.
So glad to know they have their own rating system here. I walked away with a Coon Skin cap, Megan got a slurpy....I won on good decisions of what to get.
