House of Cards (1990-1990) review

Posted : 5 years, 7 months ago on 20 February 2013 03:52 (A review of House of Cards (1990-1990))

BBC America just played this ahead of the Blu-Ray release, so I dragged out the entire trilogy (House of Cards, To Play The King and The Final Cut)from my DVD collection. Somewhat dated (this was originally broadcast in the early-to-mid 90s) Eastern European references aside, this black comedy, not-as-lethal version of Richard III is still incredibly entertaining.

Pi (1998) review

Posted : 5 years, 8 months ago on 9 January 2013 03:41 (A review of Pi (1998))

Is it insanity to pursue the existence of God, or does obtaining that knowledge create the insanity? Darren Aronofsky sets up that premise, but portraying the protagonist with underlying mental health issues,and leaves just enough red herrings to have a lot of questions unanswered.

Monarch of the Glen review

Posted : 5 years, 9 months ago on 7 December 2012 04:16 (A review of Monarch of the Glen)

One of the few BBC shows that focused on rural Scottish life. I really liked the show, even with all the cast changes.

The Newsroom review

Posted : 5 years, 11 months ago on 3 October 2012 02:05 (A review of The Newsroom)

Another iteration of Aaron Sorkin's idealistic, liberal media world. Repeated slams against everything and anything that doesn't lean left in America. You can populate the show with the most telegenic actors and write the snappiest dialogue, but in the end, it's the same ol' BS! Didn't Studio 60 get canned using the same format?

The Neighbors review

Posted : 5 years, 12 months ago on 27 September 2012 03:08 (A review of The Neighbors)

This was so bad, I couldn't watch the entire first 30 minutes! Someone from the production company clearly has something on the head of programming at ABC! OMFG my head still hurts!

United 93 (2006) review

Posted : 6 years ago on 18 September 2012 02:56 (A review of United 93 (2006))

Horrifying, entrancing, and all-too-real. Knowing how the story ends didn't detract from WHAT went on during that flight. Paul Greengrass and the producers did a tremendous job piecing together a coherent story from all the second-hand accounts of the family and friends on board that doomed flight.

Luther review

Posted : 6 years ago on 30 August 2012 04:19 (A review of Luther)

The British take on a damaged, conflicted, nose-to-the-grindstone beat detective. Really well done, even by BBC standards.

Country Strong review

Posted : 6 years, 1 month ago on 14 August 2012 12:28 (A review of Country Strong)

A Southern-fried version of "A Star is Born." Gwyneth Paltrow as a wash-up country singer just didn't look right, especially after all of her English romantic movies.

Nashville review

Why does this look like [Link removed - login to see] as a TV series, but without the tragic ending of the movie??

Creation review

Posted : 6 years, 1 month ago on 12 August 2012 02:23 (A review of Creation)

Oddly-paced moved. Semi-spoiler: this is NOT a biopic about Darwin's explorations or how he arrived at his theory of creationism. Rather, this is more about the struggles Darwin encountered within his own life as he tried to rationalize what his scientific training told him with his Christian upbringing and the then-prevailing ideas that all existed as God created them and spontaneous conversion (i.e. goose barnacles become barnacle geese). The driving factor here is Darwin's faith was shattered by the death of his young daughter (medicine still being more of an art than a science at the time). I walked away unimpressed.
