TODO - add my notes, and scripts

Git-Logo-1788C.png

git >

Provides a reasonable environment for working with git while trapped on Windows. A console window with Bash, various everyday linux console applications, and git.

I loved it, and used it regularly for sane scripting when trapped on Windows, via bash, as well as for git itself.

I replaced it with Cygwin/Babun.

A comedic commentary of Aeon Flux - (2005 movie).

Although amusing and with a few laugh-out-loud moments, this is mostly a waste of time. The RiffTrax concept might be nice for either fans or haters of a film, but this RiffTrax of this movie was not particularly entertaining to me. I'll likely get into other RiffTrax's later, so perhaps my opinion will change, but for now I don't recommend this.

In a ruined world, the last remaining city is revealed to be populated by clones, the need of which the lead scientist hopes to cure but his brother works to persist.

Overall a decent flick, but with great music that quickly becomes over-the-top with its loud pervasiveness. It starts strong, but its big ending action sequence looks cheesy as all hell. I can tentatively say I like this movie. I have, after all, seen it multiple times. Something in me is saddened somehow, as though this movie should have been better but I can't put my finger on it. I'm not familiar with its source material, but I expect those who are would have more grounds to find fault with this movie.

A death in Antarctica spurs an investigation that leads to a murder mystery over lost Soviet-era cannisters.

Decent enough to recommend for a watch, but as I've seen three times now I can say that it's a forgettable movie save for Kate Beckensale being hot.

A dragon, having, for unknown reasons, landed as a meteorite but on top of a clutch of eggs and somehow not damaging them, heals a not-knight who risked his life for the eggs but actually to steal them is cursed to become the slave of a druid who is for some reason called a sorcerer.

This is basically a high-quality TV-movie but released for the big screen. It's not dependent on the other movies in this series, which is probably for the best. It's not great, not particularly good and only worth a one-time watch for people who are fans of this sort of genre.

  • This is a prequil to the series, set about 100 years before the first movie.
  • Properly titled Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse

Dragonheart - A New Beginning (2000) image

The last dragon has been hidden away for fear of his corruption as foretold by a prophesy, but he is discovered by an equally-innocent youth looking for fame, fortune and adventure.

As a TV-movie, it's not horrible. It's still most definitely a TV-movie though. This is not B-quality, just TV-quality. Overall it's not terrible, just not my thing. It very slightly borrows from DragonHeart - (1996 movie), but the proper movie is not mandatory watching.
