Zoey And The Purple Crayon

This reminds me of my favorite book as a kid - 'Harold and the Purple Crayon.' I would use it and have Selena over for purple juice and purple pies (huckleberry) and then we will put on our purple pjs and watch the purple TV until we fell asleep.

Kitty Wants One Now

Fluffy used to be jealous of those kitties with their cat ladders even though we live in a bungalow. Now he insists he must have this cat elevator now that he knows such a wonderous thing exists.

Solomon Kane

Of all of author Robert E. Howard's characters (Conan, Kull) my favorite was always Solomon Kane. He was always such a sanctimonious bastard whose religious hypocrisy seemed to put him in the path of vampires, werewolves and witches. He also had that specific kind of self hatred and ennui that even as a ten year old I found delicious.

The movie begins with Kane and crew invading a castle in search of treasure. There he meets a demons who claims that he will be taking Kane's soul, something Solomon is not yet prepared to part with. He knows the rules and has made no such trade one would make in exchange for the loss of his soul. Europe in the 1700s was a gloomy place.

We meet up with Solomon one year later as he has moved from abbey to abbey, still haunted by that night and the horrific dreams that follow him. The head monk has a vision that requires Kane to leave the only peace he has found and urges him to return to his home in the west - again, something that is not on the top of Kane's 'To Do' list.

But walk he does, finding much death and plague along the way. When he is set upon by thieves, his vow to never take a life is severely tested. It is at this point that we see how stubborn a child Solomon was. Rather than become a priest as it was his lot in life as the 'second son' he left it all behind. A confrontation with his older brother changed everything - forcing Kane to go to sea to seek his fortune. As he tells the family he meets in forest - for him, fighting and killing was the place he always felt most comfortable.

He joins the small group as they attempt to make their way to the new world. They know of his past as an evil man but a man who seeks redemption. I can imagine they have about ten minutes left to live.

One evening the family is set upon by what can best be described as demon men and the youngest daughter is kidnapped. The girl's father makes Solomon swear on his redemption to find the girl and thus begins his search.

I have a soft spot for these revenge movies complete with the scene when our hero gathers up his weapons and pulls his cape over his shoulder. There is nothing more dangerous than a holy man with god on his side and Solomon is both dangerous and holy.

The setting is both stark and grim and you can almost feel the wet and the cold. Everyone looks like they could use a bar of soap and a round of penicillin. Once they started with the cruxifictions I knew the happy time was over but the ass whopping had begun.

I like these kind of historical revenge pictures so I can take the slow build-up and the suffereing of the main character because I know that evil is going to get what's coming to it and the young girl will be saved.
