Jonah Hexed

blog_xrayhexfO.k. Admission time: I find nothing appealing about Megan Fox. Maybe if she ever manages to act past her "just look at how hot I think I am" performance style and pulls off a memorable character at some point, I might change my mind but I honestly don't see it happening. I somehow sat through the entire first Transformers flick and have a vague memory of seeing some flashing colors and loud noises that came out of a box marked Transformers 2 one time - but there is nothing that I can imagine that could get me to watch the new Jonah Hex movie that released this past week. Awesome comic book character or not, I'm sorry Ms. Fox: You're a cinematic deal breaker.

So far it's looking like I'm not alone as the movie which hit theaters this past weekend stirred up about as high a gross from the U.S. box office as a foreign documentary and that's really too bad. The story potential about a scarred up antihero seeking revenge in the old west is one of those great iconic ideas that has the potential to be a lot of fun. Sure, it's something that's been done a million times but that's only a testament to what a strong formula it is. In any case, it's too bad about that bit of casting. I might actually have shelled out 10 bucks to catch it at some point.

Here's this week's release list for what you can find in the comic shops this week. It's kind of light for me personally not counting that awesome 3rd volume hardcover of Saga Of The Swamp Thing.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
