You’re quite welcome, dear. It’s not a problem for me to pop in on a Sunday night or Monday morning and at least make the site look alive. Well, Sunday nights are now usually occupied by a 4 1/2 hour RPG session, so Monday mornings are more likely. Anyway…our posting system got an overhaul it seems. Logged in and the layout is totally different now, but looks a little easier to use.
Don’t have much to say this week. Oh, but we did watch Iron Man over the weekend. I really enjoyed it. Robert Downey Jr. was hilarious and charming. I don’t even like Tony Stark, as a character. I think he’s one of the biggest douche bags in the Marvel Universe, right up there in the top five with the likes of Reed Richards the work-a-holic and Hank Pym the wife beater. But it was a good film; definitely one of the better Marvel films – loads better than the Fantastic Four trash, not as good as the first Spider-Man, better than some of the X-Men films (too many characters to be really effective, honestly). An excellent origins set-up. I did think that the Nick Fury appearance there at the end was really cheesy, and felt really tacked on (and it probably was), though Sammy L. had the look down pat. I’m excited to see where they’ll be going with these films, particularly for a Kenneth Branagh directed Thor film.
Well, I hope everyone has a lovely 2009!
