Based on the trailers seen, I did expect a fairly well done and at least entertaining action movie, certainly more so than the third Star Wars episode. Still, that space for disappointment exists.
This, delightfully, proves not to be the case. The former, a mere outline of the story arc, did not transpire at all. Nor were impossible goals set regarding the ages of the two important characters. Another character, portrayed by yet another favored actor, is introduced. The villainess, while perhaps not so evil as other villains in earlier stories, provided enough presence to believe.
Today, I’m on my own. Made morning rounds, fed the ranch, and now relaxing in the house working on various other things. This evening I’m off to S and K’s for dinner. That’s actually the one thing which is bothering me a bit; they are timing things early enough that there’s a sufficient gap for the cows to act up and get out of the pasture looking for food. They’ll be looking for food because we’ve not received sufficient rain to help the grass grow. Our pastures are looking ... not green. In areas the grass feels brittle and crunchy from the drought. Feeding the cows shortly before sunset seems to help in keeping them home. We’ll see, as this will be somewhat earlier.
I’ll be walking down to Riku and back again as well, since the truck wants to sit and wait until Tuesday. So I shall want to make sure I bring a flashlight torch with me.
LOL. The spell-checker that is built into Firefox, it thinks I've mis-spelled villainness up there. Possibly I have, but what I'm laughing about is one of the suggestions the spell checker is offering as an alternative, is Gainesville.
