Arrow Crossovers

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 4:32 pm

As the title implies, we have some Arrow crossover episodes to check out. First up is the second episode of the 3rd season of The Flash, titled Paradox. “Barry discovers that the effects from Flashpoint are greater than he thought. In the meantime, he meets his new co-worker who has an immediate disdain for him.” I have no clue what Flashpoint is or was but I do know Barry used time travel and changed the future, twice now evidently. Let’s see where it takes us!

Ah, okay, so, we didn’t see the Flashpoint thing, but, there’s a flashback lol

Hey, Iris knows now lol

Altered timeline indeed, this is however how John and Lyla now have a son rather than a daughter. That appears to be the only thing different in Star City whereas a great many things changed in Central City.

Haha, that’s Tom Felton/Malfoy from the Harry Potter movies.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of Flash we haven’t seen….

Before I can say, “Okay, so, he goes fast and changes Time,” he’s back in 1998, we’re listening to Soul Asylum and his father has a doppleganger who is another version of The Flash. We’ve obviously missed a lot….

As much as we should watch the Flashpoint thing, let’s move onto the 1st episode of the second season of Legends of Tomorrow, titled, Out of Time. “When a new threat emerges, Dr. Nate Heywood seeks out Oliver Queen to help find the scattered Legends; once reunited, they go to 1942, to keep Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb.”

And, we’re going to get to see Sara!

Bit too much science fiction and way too much time travel To the Kitten Academy!

This https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhYX2Ed4jHM is the first mailbag/unboxing and here’s another https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0S2Ub1iDCpo from the next day/today as I write this. It’s a riot watching the cats play with the packages lol

See you next time!

Fukushima Five Years Later

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 4:35 pm

Having heard good things about Six, let’s check out the first episode! “Navy SEAL Team Six attempt to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan when they discover an American citizen working with the enemy.” It’s on the History channel.

I could see where, this could be cool, but, it’s not uplifting….

Let’s move on to Fukushima Five Years After https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD29v1BSs4U

Wow. I’ve never really seen much on that….

How very like The Town That Was (2007)….

“As of November 2016, 30 countries worldwide are operating 450 nuclear reactors for electricity generation and 60 new nuclear plants are under construction in 15 countries.” Wow….

This is interesting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_power_by_country as is the video. Lot to think about indeed….

Hmm, very moving to say the least.

This is another interesting and very powerful article about this topic https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_and_radiation_accidents_and_incidents Eye opening to say the least….

Firestorm

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 8:14 pm

For some reason this appears to have never been posted as it’s been sitting in the Drafts for over a year now lol so here it finally is!

Continuing with our Howie Long theme up next we have Firestorm (1998). This time though, he’s the main character. Rounding out the cast we have Scott Glenn (who I’ve always enjoyed) William Forsythe who was awesome as Al Capone in The Untouchables TV series (and has had an amazingly busy career!), Barry Pepper, and Suzy Amis as the female lead. She retired not too long after this film and married James Cameron.

Anyway, I remember seeing this in the theater and enjoying it. I haven’t seen it since then. It’s rated a ghastly 4.6/10 on IMDB lol but let’s check it out!

Okay, so, they’re smokejumpers, firefighters that jump into fires to fight them. Yeah, I’m gonna pass on that….

Intense right off the bat, great stunt work and again, actors doing their own stunts 🙂

Yay!

Wow, yeah, so, riding a fire out under a fire proof tarp, good luck with that!

Okay, so, someone sets a forest fire, Long calls for a crew from the country prison which, yes, that’s right, leads to an escape. Interesting plot, I don’t recall ever seeing another film like that, bonus points for originality!

Enter Amis, the bird watcher, innocently studying the exquisite avian fauna amidst the fauna. But, it’s never a good sign when the wildlife suddenly go silent then flee….

And again, another action film for the whole family, even better, yet another girl power female lead!!

Haha! Holy great stunts Batman! Yakima Canutt would have been proud!

Great scenery 🙂

There’s even some pew pew pew!

“You know I really don’t like people jumping out of my helicopter.” There’s something you don’t hear every day! Lol

Epic, simply epic!

Very cool, 3.7/5 🙂

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Concert

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 5:54 pm

This is sooooooooo cool, how things like this become so huge, such a part of our culture, that we get to experience things like this! Video Game Show – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Concert https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCWhGQ5-RkI just like it sounds, “Experience the award winning music of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and both its expansions, Hearts of Stone & Blood Wine, in a never before seen way, performed live during Film Music Festival 2016 in Kraków, Poland.

Video Game Show — The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt concert was organized by CD PROJEKT RED in cooperation with Kraków Festival Office.” I’m getting that! That of course is what we’re watching next. Witcher 3 is without question my all-time favorite video game 🙂

Anyway, let’s get to the concert!!! I’m super excited to see this 🙂

Okay, so it is before a live audience.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my god, this is incredible!!!

Right, so that was an intro video/trailer & then it begins moving through the game. This is awesome 🙂 especially seeing the parts of the game where the music is from.

Right, there we are in White Orchard/at the beginning.

Witchers do what Witchers do & the universe they populate is filled with shades of grey, meaning, they’re often judge, jury and executioner….

Epic 🙂

Ciri!!

Yeah, that was sad….

Awww….

Hahaha!

Oh, haha, right. We’re not going in order. We’re already in Skellige lol Oh well

Haha, from the very beginning/the flashback.

Radovid lol

The Baron!

“Silver for Monsters.” Indeed, referencing the silver sword Witchers use to slay monsters, though evil comes in many forms, hence Witchers/we have a story!

Triss!

Applause indeed

🙂

Hands down my favorite video game ever and I love how they create awesome ways like this for us to continue enjoying the universe Geralt inhabits 🙂

Epic! Standing ovation indeed! I think this pretty much sums it up, “The books have been described as having a cult following in Poland, Russia and other Eastern European countries.” See you next time!

The Town That Was

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 10:55 am

Lol this is cool! Live Penguin Cam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxY0jMJbk-8

Still not feeding time at the shark tank https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyOYBUKxhlA

Oh wow, here’s that town where the coal mine fire was, way back when The Town That Was (2007)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFZqWRtYvpM Centralia

Wow, I had forgotten the fire when back that far/to 1962….

WOW, it’s still burning!

That’s amazing….

Hunh, really makes you wonder….

Wow, so, there’s 11 people left in the town….

Oh wow, the cemetery….

Talk about having the whole town to yourself….

Awww….

But, you never have a problem finding a parking space lol

But, how happy are you living in an empty town?

One of the most powerful things I’ve seen in a long time 5/5

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 3:44 pm

Having enjoyed the trailer, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) is up next. To the movies! It stars Jude Law and the guy from Pacific Rim (2013). Beyond that, I’m not looking anything up, let’s just see where it takes us though I imagine it’ll have lots of action lol

Wow, this is happy. Okay, so, when is this set? Is that Uther? Eric Bana, okay, great, where did the giant mastodon things come from?

Okay, so, that’s the table.

Mordred. This’ll end in flames but we already knew that and yes Bana plays Uther, making that Arthur. She looks like the lady who played Morgana on the TV show Merlin. It is lol No clue who she is here….

What the?!

Okay, a whole LOT of things need to be explained and yes, Charlie Hunnan is our hero, the scenery is absolutely incredible and I am already excited for the DVD.

LOL haven’t seen the kid in a boat thing in forever though it’s typically an infant.

Before I forget, directed by Guy Ritchie, very cool!

Okay, what the _____ is going on? That kid is Arthur, beyond that, nothing makes the least bit of… sigh….

So Arthur grows up on the streets not in Sir Ector’s keeping like the legend and with that, he’s an adult. My head hurts lol

None of you will ever pull the sword from the stone. It’s supposed to float down the river for when Galahad joins the… what that ick is THAT?! Who even are you? Explain, oh ick. I’ll be real honest, this is about enough of this….

What happened to her face, who is she and why is he… okay so, he ended up living with working girls and now he runs a great many operations lol

Explain, anything please lol

He of course knows the sword. Watch them freak when he does this. Sword of Destiny indeed but where’s the Lady of the Lake?

We all know how this is gonna go….

Giant eagles lol Tolkien to the rescue!

Wonder who she is, wonder who that is, wonder about a lot of things….

Alley – ooop!

Yes he is…

The Dark Lands. Sounds nice lol and it’s a regular, albeit an incredibly large eagle.

It’s a fun little movie, and a different take on the tale, but I don’t see it doing very well….

That is a line you just don’t cross, you all are going to get creed, as in massa….

The movie however and unfortunately, makes less sense as it progresses lol

It’s definitely different, I’ll give it that lol

Yep, saw that coming, but why lol

This movie far and away makes the least sense of anything I have ever enjoyed this much lol though I confess to zoning out multiple times and hopefully the 3D fad will fade again soon, like it has so many times lol

The music however very much reminds me of the Witcher 3 music. Very cool!

Oh, that’s the price. Okay/yay for something making sense lol

Okay, who or what is that lol

I don’t think so….

I love not having a clue where a movie’s going with anything lol

It’s cool though that Vortigern is the villain this time, which I don’t recall ever seeing as it’s typically Mordred. This however is about Arthur becoming king.

Very cool! This, “This s the first installment of a planned six-film series,” however explains a lot. Make one awesome film before you plan on a series. Seen that a lot of late lol oh well. See you next time!

What’s In A Name?

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 4:15 pm

You know, I never thought I would ever find a name half as cool as Biff Wiff, but, that’s what we have in Speed Weed! Even cooler is the fact that he’s been co-executive producer of Arrow since 2015! Arrow becomes ever more epic, so, let’s watch some more Arrow!

We’re up to Arrow: Broken Hearts episode 4/16 “Following the events of William’s kidnapping, Darhk has become less powerful, but Carrie Cutter, a.k.a. Cupid, has emerged into Star City to cause chaos on the city and the Green Arrow.”

The flashbacks have been epic of late & Elysia Rotaru is fantastic as Taiana on our flashbacks to Lian Yu.

With that, let’s get to it!

Cupid, right, long time no see. Last we saw her, she was a part of the Suicide Squad. Major changes all around though. John’s wife Lyla is in charge of Argus now, Felicity has called off the engagement with Oliver and I know, Deadshot is out there somewhere/having faked his own death lol

Interesting, Jason Schombing appears as Damien Darhk’s lawyer. What did we see him in…. wow, 94 acting credits. Hrmm…. Yes, Timecop (1994) that was it lol

Bye! Lol

YES! Flashback to Lian Yu!

Uh-oh, we know what that is. This’ll go well. Not….

Ouch….

The trial thing however is never going to work. It’s only episode 16, hello? We’ll have an epic battle in the 23rd and final episode lol

Of course not, entirely too early in the episode lol

No.

Haha, yes, back to Lian Yu!

Hunh. I’d say, “Didn’t see that coming,” but, by now, that’s a given lol

Should’ve sent for Nyssa lol

Fake lol

“Now we have guns too.” Lol

Don’t be, this is for the best!

Runner indeed….

Bye! Call Nyssa lol

Very cool! See you next time!

Vixen Origin Story

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 4:03 pm

After having seen Vixen cross over into Arrow last night, we of course have to check out Vixen and as Oliver mentioned, “We had an animated adventure last year.” Meaning, yes, it’s animated. “Vixen is based on the DC Character Mari McCabe / Vixen, a costumed superhero crime-fighter with the power to mimic the abilities of any animal that has ever lived on Earth. The series is set in the same fictional universe as Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow.” With that, let’s get to it!

They’re on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMNxmAVrZaY&list=PLVhQ5edB-0aJJ3V2sH4lbuzXVRNW74Z_Y and we can go right from one episode to the other. The whole first season is an intro crossover and they’re brief, so we can watch them all.

Hoho, cliffhanger! Right, because they’re brief lol

Okay, Vixen appeared in Arrow: Taken, the 15th episode of the 4th season, played by Megalyn Echikunwoke who voices her here.

It’s great getting the background even if we did see her appear in Arrow first lol

Yay, STAR city labs/we finally get our crossover lol

“People to see you I’m pretty sure.” Lol

Where’s the net arrow?

Thought you were fast Barry! Lol

Cool seeing her origin story. See you next time!

The Lady from Shanghai

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 5:50 pm

Having heard good things about The Lady from Shanghai (1947), that’s up next! White and black Rita Hayworth, Orson Welles and these other people. “Fascinated by gorgeous Mrs. Bannister, seaman Michael O’Hara joins a bizarre yachting cruise, and ends up mired in a complex murder plot.”

Okay, let’s get to it!

Background info on the film here http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040525/trivia?ref_=tt_ql_2 I especially like the part about it being filmed on Errol Flynn’s yacht. Let’s see if we can spot him!

“When the film was screened for Columbia Pictures president Harry Cohn, he found it so incomprehensible he offered to pay $1,000 to anyone who could explain the plot to him.” Lol

But why? Lol

Okay, it has my interest lol there’s Flynn’s dog! That is so cool lol

YES!

I’m more than a bit surprised to say it’s holding my interest and quite well at that, especially given how epic Arrow has become lol best of all though, it’s different lol

Lol now she’s holding Flynn’s dog.

This’ll never work lol

It goes off in a different direction though

Hunh. Glad we skipped to the end lol

Let’s move on to Angel and her babies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0_YLahW9W8

Haha, it’s naptime at the Kitten Academy as I type this! Lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPv9yKC76hE See you next time!

Kitty Cam!

Filed under: Uncategorized — bethelighthouse @ 10:19 pm

What to watch, what to watch… it has to be something epic!

There’s a new Resident Evil movie, but, never having seen any of them, let’s start at the beginning!

I’m not sure how many of these there are, other than a lot lol

I know 3 things about these movies: They’re based on a series of video games, Milla Jovovich and girl power lol

“A special military unit fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident.” Let’s see where it takes us!

Lol I love how everyone is named after a color.

Hunh, now this is different lol

Wow, now this is cool! “Despite consistent negative reviews, with six films released, the Resident Evil film series is the highest-grossing film series to be based on video games of all time, having grossed over $1 billion worldwide.”

Whoa, holy _____ okay, I think this is too much lol

Now this is cool! Live video from the World’s biggest Aquarium! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6LCLOra1rU This is the aquarium https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okinawa_Churaumi_Aquarium

Let’s check out some then and now Russian space shuttle video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBx5syeBmUY oh wow, period video of the facility we recently saw present day video of. Very cool. Interesting article here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buran_%28spacecraft%29

Here are the present day pictures https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9hNoCNYxgQ Interesting stuff!

Let’s move on to abandoned tanks and aircraft https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsUwP–lgSI

Lol at the cow by the Phantom.

Plane stuck in the beach, that was random lol

Oh wow, that looked like an old P-80.

Whoa, now wait, that’s an old FW-190.

Let’s move on to the submarine/tanks video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Rx5N299z30

Lol at the stacks of tanks.

This is adorable! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6O9WFC9RfpY I’m not sure at what point the kittens start arriving, but, it’s awesome watching the little ones playing together in the upper right lol

Lol kitty pile on! Then, the one goes flying & the other was like, “Where’d you go?” lol

Haha, they’re on the move!

This is so awesome lol

Lol wrestling at the kitty academy!

“Excuse me, is it okay if I sit on you?” lol

lol

None of them have collars, so, what’s going on here lol at first, I had thought it was like kitty day care lol

“What choo doing over there?” lol

Right, so it’s their cats.

I’m leaving that on, have a great day & we will see you next time!
