"So, I watched this movie this morning, and I really liked it. I figured out the twist very early, but that didn't detract from the story at all for me. Sometimes I forget that Stallone can act, and he proves it here. Highly recommended."

"Samaritan" on Amazon Prime - have you seen it?

Being a fan of super hero movies, and especially good ones, when I heard of "Samaritan", I thought I ought to give it a viewing, and I did.SPOILER: This is NOT about Astro City's Samaritan. Save for the name, it's an all new story and concept - and to me, it plays well.Basically, 25 years ago, Samaritan and his arch nemesis Nemesis, twin brothers, were battling for their own cause. Both supposedly died - but our protagonist Sam, 13 years old and living in a slum, is a Samaritan fanatic and…See More

Eric,

 

All I can say is "Aw, damn!"  For weeks now, I've been meaning to state in a comment to one of my Deck Log articles how much I appreciate your unflagging support and your incisive commentary on my column.  I kept putting it off because I never found the right place, or was too busy to add a comment, or any of the hundred of things we put off doing stuff we should.

 

Of all the members of this board, you were my most loyal reader, and compliment or criticism or just plain commentary, I always looked forward to seeing you post a comment.  You're one of the Silver-Age experts who kept me on my toes.

 

So I shall miss your presence here, probably more than most.  But it's your decision, friend.  I don't stand in your shoes.  Each of us has to determine what is right for himself and then act accordingly.  I'd prefer you stay, but if you feel you have to go, then go with my blessing.  And my regrets.

 

Godspeed,

Adam
