The Neighbors review

Posted : 5 years, 2 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 review

Posted : 5 years, 3 months ago on 18 September 2012 02:56 (A review of United 93)

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 : 5 years, 3 months 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 : 5 years, 4 months 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]">Country Strong as a TV series, but without the tragic ending of the movie??

Creation review

Posted : 5 years, 4 months 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.

The Closer review

Posted : 5 years, 4 months ago on 27 July 2012 04:27 (A review of The Closer)

As The Closer comes to an end, reflection dictates that we will remember the show, which started as summer filler, complete with a crazy-like-a-fox, fish-out-of-water protagonist, proved to be stronger than anyone ever gave it credit. And it helped launch the current creative excellence and dominance of cable television over the network trash (especially when the Big 4 seem hell-bent to show nothing but "reality shows" until the fall).

Why does this look like [Link removed - login to see]">"Crimson Tide" meets "Jersey Shore" and written by the Coen Brothers???

2012 review

Posted : 5 years, 5 months ago on 18 July 2012 04:37 (A review of 2012)

Ponderous, predictable, and loaded with tons of useless special effects. I actually fell asleep the first time I watched it!

Mr. Saturday Night review

Posted : 5 years, 5 months ago on 9 July 2012 08:05 (A review of Mr. Saturday Night)

Not a great movie, but Billy Crystal's homage to the early day of comedy TV, with a few thinly-veiled shots at some the early TV greats.
