Well, What After “Endgame”?

Last week, in a theater of only about 7 people (because we went on a Thursday afternoon around 3pm), a friend and I watched Marvel’s “Endgame”.  There will be no real spoilers in this one.  I don’t like that so there. 🙂

Okay, so for the review without spoilers.  It was a good movie.  I give it a high B+ into the A- territory, so if you haven’t seen it, you should. Hey, watch “Infinity Wars” first or you won’t know what is going on.  The acting was good to very good, the plot was really good, the cgi was excellent, the only thing I thought it lacked was just little things here and there.  I am not even going to tell you those things because they were just for me.  I didn’t like this or that, the way this was handled or that…..ad nausuem as they say.  You may like all those things and hate others or love it all or wonder what the big hype was about.

One thing it did have in abundance was heart.  This movie was a “feel” movie; it was not always a “feel good” one, but it did have your emotions going.  It had surprises and twists and turns (always good for me).

So, what now? What do you do after watching “Endgame”?  What to do after what some called the best movie ever!?  Well, that was easy for me.  I went back to the hometown area, ate at Cracker Barrel, then, along with my friend, went home and watched 2 more episodes of “Penny Dreadful” (Excellent series, btw).   Then after he left, I sat down for about 3 hours of “Fallout 76”.  So my answer is, “My life went back to normal.”  Well, normal for me, anyway.  I have several more movies lined up for summer watching, several series to start and/or continue watching, more levels to move on Fallout 76 (right now I am at level 80), and a house to clean as well as writing that needs to continue to be done.

My point here is that a movie, no matter how good it is,  should not stop your life.  You shouldn’t curl up in a ball and be sad it’s over.  I remember when the original “Star Wars” came out.  My buddies and I watched it 3 times the first week.  I watched it a couple more later and watched it on tape a few times.  Really excellent for the time.  “Endgame” did put that to shame (bigger budget and more technology and hyped), but still, just go on with your life.  At least, that’s  my humble opinion, such as it is.

So, what will you do after “Endgame”?  I know not everyone will even watch it, so, what do you do after your big thing, whether it’s a vacation, award, big presentation….?

Namaste,

Scott

 

What’s It to You?

I have been tossing around ideas for a new post.  I had some, threw them away, had others and saved them for a rainy day.  Then, I read this UpWorthy article:

McEnroe speaks out!

Read the article, watch the video (please, it’s hilarious), then finish this.

I don’t really know this older tennis veteran talked about in the article and video.  I really don’t care to know her. I have said, time and again, I don’t judge people.  She is allowed to voice her opinion, no matter what I think of it.  Other than she is hurting people.  Her fame with a tennis racket does not give her the ability to be a life judge of everyone else.  Moreover, what the game is today does not take away from what she thought it was in days gone by.  The biggest fact is:  the world is moving toward acceptance of same-sex marriage and LBGTQIA+ views and acceptance.  I see this as no different than people telling me how good it was before computers. “Computers are taking the jobs from good people and giving them to machines.”  These are the same people who are upset because food prices keep going up as well as most other things.  But, fact is, computers are keeping most prices lower than if we still had myriads of humans running those machines and tasks.  Same thing, acceptance, will help everyone move into the next generation and feel good or better about life.

I am a mostly retired person, doing some writing and a bit of work here and there, trying to make things work on my salary.  This ex-tennis pro is so much wealthier than I am.  She should find it easier to forgive and forget…shouldn’t she?

Do you accept the changes in this world as far as technology and sexual empowerment and expression are concerned?  What’s it to you?

Namaste,

Scott

2 Things to Make You Smile

I don’t get to smile often enough to suit me.  I love life and I love learning, but smiling comes from the heart.  So yesterday and today have been special.

First, yesterday, Mom and I went to Cracker Barrel to eat.  After a wonderful meal, Mom wanted to shop in the store for a few minutes.  I decided to sit outside in the 70+ degree weather.  While reading my Kindle, I looked up to see 2 young ladies with a child.  A third young lady, who worked at CB, came out to see them.  Then a young man arrived.  I knew him as a cashier at CB.  The other worker ran to him and jumped in his arms, hugging him.  When she stood again, he knelt and proposed.  How cool is that?

Today, I learned that Beverly Cleary turned 103.  Read the article if you want, but please watch the video.  It is precious.

Beverly Cleary turns 103 

Hope you are smiling, too.

Namaste,

Scott
