Altered Carbon is sci fi without an operating system. It’s all hardware, no instructions.
Electric Dreams. A NO BS review
1/8 I like sci fi. Movie pick? hm, Mr. Nobody. I watched 5 epis of #ElectricDreams I had no good/bad expect. ‘Uh oh’ in open montage.Fancy schmancy,bad! Twilight Zone opening = ordinary stuff/strange setting, disorienting.Imagination works, scary, great!
I like sci-f. There are lots of good movies, some great and some greater. It’s a hard thing to write, and watch, because small script, directing and acting mess-ups cause damage to the whole thing. Also hard because many times the writer wants to embed too many little coded references to other things, it makes for good blogging but oftentimes compromises the movie, it devalues the audience intelligence by creating complexity and clickbait. People are much more forgiving with romantic comedies, dramas and the like.
Black Mirror. A No BS Review…
I usually start reading a TV review at its end and sometimes work my way backwards. My own simple rating system is DON’T SEE IT, SEE IT, WHATEV
This bunch of my reviews is only SEE IT. It my TV list, and I could be wrong for you, but it is right for me
I grew up watching the original Star Trek. I was too young to see its first go-round, it had just been cancelled. I was the generation that loved it only once it had gone.
As there were not many episodes and it aired daily, I knew every one. These were days before television shows were implanted with endless novelties for tv blogging sleuths. Sometimes a tv show is just a tv show.
Once What Happened is less read and talked about, now it’s just a book. If it has intrinsic merit, reader loyalty and word of mouth can keep it selling enough to make it worth keeping in print for years, decades, even centuries.
Is Hillary a contemporary Thucydides and this is the history of her own Peloponnesian war. Will she take out Pericles funeral oration and inject her own commentary on democracy and sacrifice. Perhaps this is Hillary’s discourses on Trump.
There is something about popcorn, soda and Mom. We used to love going to the movies together. There were months that we saw every major release. James Bond, Mel Brooks, Sextet starring Mae West. And I remember seeing Being There with Peter Seller. I remember when the Gardener becomes a Presidential Candidate, the maid sees him on TV and say ‘It’s a white man’s world’….
I went to the Amazon Bookstore today on an errand to audit its well-being. I am wary of any store that has a greeter. I think they said ‘can I help you find a book today.’ It could have been that, I disregard panhandlers in the trains and in bookstores. I’m not new to books and stores, this isn’t my first rodeo.
Amazon Bookstore is a confectionary selling books (incidentally I give cotton candy a 2.3 score)

Terminator Genisys is so bad that it has destroyed the franchise. A terminator must go back in time and destroy the source material, a Small Wonder…
