Yesterday I have heard of the Critical Mass Movement for the first time since I wondered about a large group of cyclist passing my house yesterday evening. The participants lighted their bicycles and tricycles with all kind of colorful and blinking lights which looked quite curious in a positive way.
According to Wikipedia the CM movement stands for the rights and better infrastructure of cyclist and other not motorized traffic.
I have seen Doctor Strange today and it was pretty strange indeed.
The movie is very well done. Entertaining on the first view with terrific special effects. But I do not think any particular scene will stick to my mind for long. There was a slight sense of humor which suggest the movie takes itself sometimes not too serious. And of cause the conversation of Stephen Strange and Thor after the credits makes curious for Thor 3, which will hopefully lines up with the previous Marvel movies in sense of quality.
I am pretty sure I have seen the 1960 movie with Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson but it is more than just a few years back and I can not remember the movie good enough to compare it with the modern one. And maybe this is a good thing.
A while back I started watching movies with headphones on when I am alone. Which gives me a much better and more focused movie experience than any THX surround thing could ever do. So I did with this movie. And I was literally glued to the Screen and watched the movie without a break. The Magnificent Seven is primary an enjoyable action movie and a western just in the second place. The only thing I will complain is the slight lack of magnificence of the main characters. It is that tiny little trait which makes a character more than just some sort of (anti-)hero but an extraordinary cool character. Not in a Blade/Wesley Snipes way but in a Charles Bronson and Client Eastwood style.
