And thusly the weekend. I sense a looming apocalypse. Or it might just be the bulk of a Chunky Baldwin blocking out the sun. I hope he doesn't give me sparkly babies.

I've not had this much fun as the time I watched all the Nic Cage films (I'm told there are new ones, I really want to see the Color Out of Space on account that Cthulhu is Finestre's second cousin twice removed).

Started watching Babel yesterday, but it was too late, I was too tired adn couldn't keep it straight in what passes for my BRANES so gave up and went to grumble about the temperature in the bedroom

I had to check this, because Cthulhu doesn’t appear in the book, but it seems he's made it into the film :thumbsup:  Also, Terrible Things happen to some alpacas.  I'm not sure L.P. Hovercraft would have recognised an alpaca, but he certainly wouldn’t have put one in Arkham.

Unhinged.

It was shocking to see how much weight Russell Crowe has put on. Gladiator?  Not these days, pal.

There are actors who wax and wane as the part demands, but Crowe doesn't look like one of them.

True enough he doesn't. I used to live in a spooky bit of New England (I put the noise in the Quiet Corner). Never did find Arkham.

Anyway, the movie in question doesn't appear to have turned up on a streaming service near me yet. It's bound to feature Mr Cage going suitably unhinged as only he can as the mysterious happenings take their toll.

More goodness at the weekend. Earthstorm, Chunky Baldwin was back (looking less chunky and less stoned, but terrible, terrible hair). Cynics may have called it a rip-off of Armageddon, but whatever. Asteroid smacks into the moon, oh noes, moon rock is pelting the Earth and the moon itself is losing mass, adjusting its orbit, and threatening to pull itself apart and trounce the Earth. For several milliseconds it came perilously close to science, but then they saved themselves by declaring the best way to stop the moon breaking in half was magnetism.

Anyway, it's catastrophe in the making, and by now you to know how we avert a catastrophe. Say it with me people, say it with me: nuclear bombs. On the Moon. It's always nuclear bombs. But not just plain old nuclear bombs, these were magnetic nuclear bombs. Chunky Baldwin the roughneck demolitions expert willing to turn his hand to a bit of lunar nuclearing. The female lead had entrancing freckles.

Seattle Superstorm. The title really sums it up. The ever-dependably silly US military blasts a UFO that isn't a UFO that is threatening to fall on the Earth. So it falls on the Earth. A chunk of lands in the Seattle harbour, fuming away. Some splendid off-kilter chemistry is invoked (chemistry has got a lot better since my A level, for sure). And Russians. Pesky bickering teenage kids (who all look about 30, but they age differently over there). Global disaster is aversion takes a different track via heavy water. Disappointing lack of nuclear bombs, but you can't have everything. Kids solve their differences (in case you were worrying).

Geo-Disaster. Actually, this one went all out with an apocalyptic checklist. Volcanoes. Check. Earthquakes. Check. Storms. Check. Arguing teenage kids. Check. Mega-twister. Check. Oh, and dark matter. Which pierced the Earth like a bullet causing the aforementioned problems. Other than the kids, who were for once, plausibly teenage enough for you to want to keep clear of Prince Andrew.

I keep finding these movies. They're gloriously addictive. I think 500mph Storm may be next.

I'm kind of sad that I lost interest in cheesy disaster movies when I realised I was living through one, and unfortunately this one doesn't appear to have been written by Russell T Davies[1].  Since I'm far too old to be a bickering teenager, and my freckles fall somewhat short of entrancing, I'm left with being some sort of redshirt-lesbian-hacker-scientist cliche, and we all know what their chances of survival are.  I suppose if there's a submarine I might make it to the second act, but I've been trying to avoid those on account of all the gruesome dismemberment headlines.  Maybe I should get a dog?

Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Erm, have you tried making some snarky comments and swinging a yo-yo? Might be just what we need.

Darkest Hour.

An enjoyable romp through the beginnings of the Second World War, following Gary Oldman as he squeezed into a Churchill suit. It was interesting that Churchill’s failings were more than hinted at, although not in a way as strong as Black Lives Matter.

As I watched him at the Despatch Box I was minded to think what a nincompoop popinjay we have as Prime Minister today.

One of J. G. Ballard's disaster novels was called The Wind From Nowhere. It involved a 500 mph wind, but this ain't that. 2.2/10 on Imdb, probably for spelling the title correctly.

I really enjoyed that. And when I turned down getting another drink because I thought we were nearly at the end I found we were only an hour it and I was soengrossed the time had flown by  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I enjoyed that as well. Not least Daniel Craig's accent.
