Slow News Saturday

I'm going to use my newly acquired socket wrench to pull the rear wheel from my Ducati Diavel and if all goes according to plan, haul it off and get a new tire on it. (nail in the tire) You can't repair a tire on a high performance motorcycle such that you will be sure that it won't leak because of the flex in the tire and the nature of taking corners with enthusiasm.

Thus, the best I can blog on is some movies coming up in the next 30 days that I plan to see. I like Westerns and there are two coming out that have promise...maybe. Then there is James Bond.

Bone Tomahawk
After a man's wife is kidnapped, four men (Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins) go to save her and find that many horrors await them. It's referred to as a "Western horror film", so stand by for it.

Revenant
In 1823, Hugh Glass, a fur trapper, is mauled by a bear while hunting in what will become the Dakota Territory. His companions rob him, murder his young son, and leave him to die, but he survives and sets out on a 200 mile trek to get revenge on the men who betrayed him and find the man who killed his son.



Spectre
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.

    1. I need one of those cars to act as my mojo through life...in addition to all of the other toys that I have which serve in that role.

  2. I like Daniel Craig as Bond.

    He's suave like Connery, but a bit "grittier"....

    1. The next James Bond will be Idris Elba, a black man. I'm sure that it will be much more politically correct.

    2. Yeah, but only if he shoots old white guys exclusively......

    3. I'm sure that will be the theme - or maybe he goes to the US and assassinates US police officers of all races. That's very politically correct.
