Ah yes, November, November, the 5th of remember… No wait, that doesn’t sound right.
The First weekend of November, where everyone rushes to clean all the Halloween decoration and put Christmas decoration instead. You know that we are mere weeks away from non stop Christmas Jingles and reruns of “It’s a wonderful life”! Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas season, it’s just that I don’t get why people are so intense about it.
There is one things that I know for sure is that November and December are probably the least productive month of the year for me. It seems that for the third year in a row, I am having a very light work Schedule. Of the three project two have no finalized requirements despite the fact that we are already in testing phase and the third has yet to be approved by the client, which means it currently have the very optimistic install date of 2049. I might have to go to my boss and see if there is any thing he can give me.
Thor Ragnarok came this week end, and it was quite good. It falls in line with the current trend of Marvel movie with lots of jokes and lighthearted moments that the first Guardian of the Galaxy made very popular. I miss the more somber movie from the Winter Soldier/Thor 2 phase, where you did not have a joke break the dramatic tension every five minutes. They did address a very important fact for the upcoming infinity wars, which made me very glad. The crossover with Doctor Strange felt a bit out of place, but it does what it needs to do well enough.
I used to do the Thursday night screenings for new Comic book movies but I started to do Sunday morning instead. I find the crowd on Thursday night to be too inconsistent. Sometimes it is full of nerds and you get a good experience (like when I went to see Age of Ultron), sometimes you get a bad experience. I don’t remember which movie it was but the row in front of me were clearly drunk and were more interested in their Apple watch than the film, which was very distracting. Sunday morning is usually families and old people, most the room will be empty and most importantly, tickets cost only $5! I just wish that I could skip the adverts and movie trailers…
