Just finished Hitman: Agent 47.  It was an enjoyable action movie.  It reminded me that I need to finish the last season of Homeland.

The Transformers: The Movie (1986)

It may be an 85 minute toy commercial, but it's still better than anything Michael Bay has ever done.

Captain America Civil War and Star Wars 7.
Going to watch the deleted footage of Civil War, might be good.

Jack Reacher (2012)  Read the first book, really (really really) hated it and disliked the character.  Oddly enough, enjoyed the film quite a bit. Reacher, at least to me, is a more palatable character when I have a few steps between me and his mind.

Jack Reacher (2012)

Excellent flic. I especially love Robert Duvall's character.
My wife and I went to see it in the theatre because we were looking for an excuse to have a night out.
It was the only film playing that looked remotely interesting at the time. Needless to say, we were both
pleasantly surprised. We redboxed a second viewing, but I really need to add it to the collection.
I was thinking I ought to read some of the novels, but it sounds like maybe I should pass...

Nope.  Its a relatively new film...http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3864024/?ref_=nv_sr_1

You are probably thinking of the 80s Laser mission with Brandon lee..

Because some people miss the note where Tolkien states the Shire Calendar is about ten or so days in advance of ours?   ;)

Caught 2 last night.
First up was Christopher Meloni and Bruce willis in an action/who's guilty like thriller, Marauders.  Man was it trippy figuring out what was going on, and had some cool action scenes..

Then came Nice guys with Russel Crowe and Ryan Gossling.  Funny, some what crast with some of the jokes, but all in all decent.

actually it isn't. the Shire does set aside 5 days separate from all the weeks and months, but that is only to keep the length of the months even. and they are separated out over the whole year, so the dates do coincide fairly closely most of the time. the main difficulty is that Shire-reckoning does Overlithe (their equivalent of a leapyear) as needed rather than on a fixed 4 year schedule, which tends to result on our calender's seasonal dates go out of sync with the actual seasons every 25-33 years. the way that the Shire separated out certain holidays to keep the lengths of the months even means that in their calendar the days of the week each dates fall on does not change, the way ours does. those two factors account for the variable differences in the dating, but it is not always a fixed number ahead. over the span of decades it varies between being ahead and behind.

further Tolkien himself 'translated'** all the dates given in his works to Gregorian equivalents.. for example the hobbits had no 'september' but rather "Halimath", and the date given as the 22nd of September actually meant 22nd of Halimath", which in shire reckoning always fell on a mersday. (which Tolkien 'translated' as Thursday)

of course this is all more trivia than anything, akin to trying to use the the pre-Julian roman calender's to calculate the dates of holidays within the Gregorian calendar.. it is much easier to just use the system in common use and ignore such variables. thus the 22nd of September, regardless of calendar, becomes Hobbit's day for us Tolkien fans, the birthday of the Bagginses.


**rather, he used Gregorian dates, the way he used english names for the hobbits, then put in the appendixes the 'real dates' and 'real names' in the 'original language', keeping up the illusion that he was translating some old tome rather than writing fiction, since he had fancied his work to be something to fill the missing void in anglo-saxon mythography, of which we have almost nothing in real life aside from Beowulf.. which itself is Danish in setting, and heavily mutated by later christian concepts..

What ever day you want to celebrate, celebrate.

But I still hold to my statement.  (From Appendix D: Shire Calendar for Use in All Year "In that case the Shire dates are actually in advance of ours by some ten days, and out New Years Day corresponded more or less to the Shire January 9.")

Because what is the point of being a big pedantic geek if I can't be pedantic?   ;)

I liked it, but there was entirely too much shaky cam/ first person shooter-itis for me to want to watch it again anytime soon.
Maybe next year.

I'm going to watch Maleficent (2014) tonight @1800 on SyFy.
