X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE (2009)


Check out trailers!
Would you recommend this? Not really. If you're a fan, you already know his history from the comics (which is much more interesting in the comics).


Technically any good? Bleh, not really. They changed the story dramatically, which makes it a crappy adaptation, and the way the script is structured, the character arc the lead travels is ultimately useless, so nothing resonates. The acting was meh, Jackman's always believable, but when the script is crap, who cares?


How did it leave me feeling? That the comic-book-movie curse has returned!! Each X-Men movie has gotten progressively worse and this is the worst one so far. I think they should just stop before they murder the franchise entirely.


Would you sit through it again? No.

It's not just me. Apparently other folks don't like this movie either.

Think Specter's Switch to the Democrats Means Anything? You Need to Understand Our One-Party/Two-Head System

Think about it: our system allows for legalized bribery. Every politician is pro-corporate because that's where the overwhelming majority of their campaign contributions come from. To keep those contributions flowing (which allows them to keep getting re-elected) politicians will do anything these corporate donors ask. Does it really matter if one of them takes money from Coke instead of Pepsi? Or barters favors with agribusinesses instead of the oil industry? What happened to government for the people, by the people?

What's worse is that some companies and industries will give to both parties to make sure that whomever wins, they'll have influence.

Back on April 13, 2009 Noam Chomsky was on Democracy Now and he addressed this issue this way:

You can learn a lot from campaign contributions. In fact, one of the best predictors of policy around is Thomas Ferguson’s investment theory of politics, as he calls it—very outstanding political economist—which essentially—I mean, to say it in a sentence, he describes elections as occasions in which groups of investors coalesce and invest to control the state. And he takes a look at the formation of campaign contributors, and it gives you a surprisingly good prediction of what policies are going to be. It goes back a century, New Deal and so on. So, yeah, it can predict pretty well what Obama is going to do. There’s nothing surprising about this. It’s the norm in what’s called political democracy.

I know I'm quoting the infamous Noam Chomsky, but he's quoting Thomas Ferguson and who cares as long as what they're both saying is accurate?

Sure, there may be some slight ripples, but ultimately, the problems with our system will still be there no matter which side of the aisle Specter iss sitting on. Our system is built on corruption. Is it any less corrupt because companies you like get their way?

@tomzer1 and yeah, Voyager is a suicidable offense. Holy cats that show was lame!!

@tomzer1 I did! It's titanium--that's cool!! I feel bad since I've boycotted Trek crap since before Voyager ended.

@tomzer1 that said, today UPS is supposed to deliver my Star Trek titanium spork. :D

@tomzer1 well, I tend to not b...

@tomzer1 well, I tend to not be too die-hard a fan of anything if it starts to feel like torture. :) Hence my feelings toward Trek & BSG

@waxkrayon I actually want to ...

@waxkrayon I actually want to start posting fiction again. I do it from time-to-time but never stick with it. Gotta quit quitting! :P

@waxkrayon haha, I got as far ...

@waxkrayon haha, I got as far as CSS and have yet to learn all of it. Just learn what I need to get stuff done. Too busy to do it right. :(

@waxkrayon well, 140 character...

@waxkrayon well, 140 characters at a time is different from writing prose or screenplays, but I'm confident in my abilities. :)

@waxkrayon that's so cool! Wel...

@waxkrayon that's so cool! Well, you can always do comics & oils on the side. It's not ideal, but it's better than just missing it IMO.

@tomzer1 cool, thanks! I can't...

@tomzer1 cool, thanks! I can't, um, wait? ;)

@waxkrayon well, if you know your way around Dreamweaver or something similar I think that means you can call yourself a webhead. ;)

@waxkrayon I enjoy figuring stuff out--just got tired of it. Not a fan of things changing for no good reason. strong=b i=em tags vs styles?

@waxkrayon but even my wife is a better artist than me. :) but it's cool since I'm a better writer :D

@waxkrayon I have a few college buds who are pros in the comics industry along w/pro photographer friends & few pals from my animation days

@waxkrayon haha--great minds i...

@waxkrayon haha--great minds indeed! Except, I'm kind of lame when it comes to visuals. I'm an ok cartoonist, but am envious of you pros. :)

@tomzer1 ahhh, I see. It all m...

@tomzer1 ahhh, I see. It all makes sense now. The licensing deal didn't include the original characters. Lame licensing deal then! Arg!

@waxkrayon web design is tricky these days since it can mean different things. I used to call myself 1 but realized I couldn't keep up w/it.

@waxkrayon cool! I always seem to bump into illustrater/graphics types in my life. Good thing I like you guys so much! :)

@quantumparticle of course! I forgot about keeping the fear level up! More of that "change we need," right?

@waxkrayon of course eating an...

@waxkrayon of course eating and bill-paying is required, so I need to get paid something. BTW can I ask what you do for a living?

@waxkrayon thx! Yeah I'm weird...

@waxkrayon thx! Yeah I'm weird like that--all I really want from life is to tell stories. Don't care about the medium, the fame or the pay.

@tomzer1 well some bad anime is fun to watch for the cheese factor, like Gatchaman or Transformers. But I come from the MST3k school :)

@tomzer1 haha "gourmet fan" is an interesting way of describing it! But yeah kinda like running all LOTR movies back-to-back in the theater

@tomzer1 time-wise it should have overlapped with when the Knight Sabers were active, yet there was no mention of them.

@tomzer1 but thanks anyway! Maybe I'll bug you for it sometime down the road.

@tomzer1think i'll pass on anything non-Knight Sabers related. The BGC universe is decidely unfriendly toward women and I'm quite fond of em

@waxkrayon and to me it's more about the chance to do the work. The getting credit thing was just an insult to injury thing.

@waxkrayon true, but she's a weird person to deal w/& only replies to you if she wants to. Tried to initiate contact w/her in past w/no luck

@rogermapes you're welcome, man! Happy to support you--you're talented, funny and a nice guy--you deserve the support! :)

@tomzer1 dude "Real Drive" was...

@tomzer1 dude "Real Drive" was frustratingly bad. I kept thinking 2 things. "This has GOT to get better!" & "How did this even get made?"

@tomzer1 between anime, Britis...

@tomzer1 between anime, British shows & podcasts I already listen to/watch, it's tough to find time for new stuff esp. since me=workaholic

@tomzer1 I've actually heard o...

@tomzer1 I've actually heard of Track-shun before, but can't remember why I never got into it. I think it's strictly a time constraint thing

@tomzer1 a running commentary on the BGC universe sounds cool but LONG. :)

@tomzer1 have a friend's novel I'm reading the 1st few chapters of so that takes priority but I'll get to it.

@tomzer1 yep! Alll done w/the BGC universe aside from the audio drama. Need to read the transcript for that once I'm done with other reading

@waxkrayon aw, thanks! That's ...

@waxkrayon aw, thanks! That's such a nice sentiment! I don't usually remember my dreams so I don't know if I did or not. But thanks. :)

@waxkrayon what's even more an...

@waxkrayon what's even more annoying is that in her bio on her co's website she mentions the play I wrote for her (for free) but not my name

@waxkrayon thx, yeah the director's behavior was not a surprise, but still disappointing. Don't know why she decided to stop being friends.

@ilovemakonnen I think I've heard of that place. Haven't heard anything bad about it, but I don't think they have a drama dept. Do you draw?

Why the hell would I want to follow "the Vince McMahon of bowling"? (He asked, probably not getting the joke...)

@ilovemakonnen where are you going to school? If it doesn't have a good drama department, maybe you could transfer? I dunno.

@ilovemakonnen didn't you say you're going to college? Maybe there's an acting class you can take?

@ilovemakonnen well, to be a good actor, that takes training--a lot of folks think they don't need it, but everyone can learn more & improve

@ilovemakonnen Wow, well, mayb...

@ilovemakonnen Wow, well, maybe you're just a really charming guy? I dig you in your videos (not in THAT way). Maybe you should be an actor?

@ilovemakonnen I was just abou...

@ilovemakonnen I was just about to Tweet that very message to you. Dude, I'm straight and married! PUHlease!! ;)

@foleymo I agree with @Krownz I think he's an idiot. Nooo, not an idiot, but a bit too "establishment" you know? People balked at Twitter.

@hisanc I'm a reformed Trekkie. Stopped buying Trek stuff ages ago, but saw this titanium spork and thought I'd actually *use* it.
