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.

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so it’s time to be thinking about the wine you’re going to serve with that special dinner, be it turkey, ham, a roast, or something vegetarian or vegan.
