Burt Gummer’s Rec Room

A gathering place for paranoid survivalists and those who worship at the Church of Chang

August 2015: Dryer than a bone, and hotter than the surface of the sun- yup, it’s summertime in Perfection and El Blanco is on the prowl.

Disclaimer: This is the part of the Church that is the most no holds barred. None of it is intended with malice, and although it can on occasion seem a little bit fraught, it is banter rather than venom. So, be warned that this is like taking a naked swim in a piranha tank and not recommended for the faint of heart.

    Watched the latest Terminator-with Ahnold, Urmm tall gal from the Martian, Linda Hamilton, etc. It’s–OK, trots out all the usual expected cliches-but enough already. They don’t need to do anymore of these.

    WatchING Fat City with Stacy Keach and Jeff Bridges. So far pretty okay. Never seen it before.

      I caught the end of it, seemed pretty blah to me. Hey, terminators fighting terminators again, great. The whole truck sinking down to the bottom of that lake, horrible.

    Enola Holmes I actually liked quite a bit. Watched it with my younger daughter, who also liked it, a lot. Didn’t even mind Supes as Sherlock, since he was a peripheral character. That Millie Brown was really good in this, we both liked when she “broke the fourth wall!” as my daughter would yell out. Maybe I will get her to check out the books and see if they are worth a read, since she is a huge reader.

      I watched EH also and while I am most definitely NOT the target audience i thought it was okayish.I however was getting very annoyed with the fourth wall breaking by the end of the movie.I could nail exactly when it was coming and almost exactly what she was going to say because they made it so easy to figure out. Gerault of Rivia was good as a jacked Sherlock. I was quite annoyed at how they portrayed poor Mycroft. I get they need an antagonist, one that had the power, to move EH around and put her in places the script needed her to be but in the books he wasn’t such a pratt.

        Yeah I liked it better than you did Xi but the Mycroft as Mel Cooley stuff got old fast. 4th wall stuff I don’t mind(much), it can get gratuitous though.

      • Xiphos0311 says :

        It wasn’t bad movie its just that I am very far from the target audience is all. I might have enjoyed it more if I watched it straight through instead of like 20 minute chunks over several days.

      • Just Pillow Talk says :

        Yes, they for sure made Mycroft a throwaway character.

      • Xiphos0311 says :

        yep they sure did,

    So Xi, looks like we’ll be getting a season 2 on The Vow. Shocker. What a vile, crooked bunch.

    Last week’s ep was very difficult to get through. I wanted to slap Mark into oblivion (viciously so when he chastized bonnie for joking about sleeping on the dog bed). Nippy looked coked the fuck out on the pier. And I badly want to know if anyone walked out of these sessions or pushed back on any of it. The mind boggles. This week’s ep was basically, oh after 8 eps of long shots of Nippy on the laptop, sarah playing with kids, our aunt beru looking pensive or Catherine in a car, P.S….Mexico! (Which, have you seen the texts between Keith and the 15 year old?? Jesus fucking christ, it is beyond.) And Mark sitting on the floor crying about the pleasure Keith took from all this at the end seemed very revealing of him. How focused he was on Keith’s “pleasure.” (And stop showing slo mo shots of volleyball and award ceremonies like I’m gonna be sad for what you lost Mark. Like, did these people just need shitty office jobs? We have all kinds of stupid assemblies and awards ceremonies, chances for forced fun, softball/volleyball leagues, idiotic training, etc)

    HBO is teasing Keith’s side of the story and lots of “intimate” DOS stories in season 2. Escalating the sleaze, I suppose. Haven’t seen any of the Starz series that just started, but I hear it has more dirt on Mark and co.
