We live in a golden age, collectors. These guy's may be pricey but you get full value for your money.
I am loving the low tech look of Whiplash vs the High Tech evolution of the Iron Man Armor. The suitcase BECOMES the armor - it is so simple - 45 years of the character and the suit was always just PIECES in that case. Okay, NOW you got my jaded attention because the only way that THAT can work is if you abandon the much used plot device that Iron Man is NOT Tony Stark a major part of the character's story. That is the way you create/re imagine a superhero movie.
How does the hero essentially fight himself? How do you defeat a man who has nothing to lose? A man who plays on all the guilt you have about what YOUR selfish actions have caused? How does it feel to be hit with that right in the middle of what you thought was an easy path to your redemption?
FINALLY, I see someone asking these questions to give me something beyond all the visual WOW, which, if we can be honest, is the EASY part. James Cameron I am looking right at you. John Favreau, Robert Downey Jr, I would kiss you both full on the mouth WITH tongue if I could.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
