Mea culpa (2014)
A mother and her child come out of the police station. Two killers drive by on a motorcycle with the aim of killing the boy. And the mother tells her son to run away? Any mother would be grabbing her son and bringing him back into the police station, or just hiding behind a car so as not to get shot. Sending her son away on his own is such an improbable scenario. It's almost laughable.
Too many actors are stress-ing ev-ry syl-la-ble
While the story is ok, what I find tiresome is that all actors seem to be asked to em-pha-size each syl-la-ble in-de-pen-dant-ly. When one person does this, it's ok because it becomes their style. But when 4 or 5 actors are talking the same way, it becomes overkill and cheesy. I wish each actor were given the opportunity to speak in their own style instead of being asked to fit into one common mould.
Mile 22 (2018)
All about shooting guns, blood and death.
There's barely a story here. The whole movie is about killing, non stop. It would have been nice to have a story going on too. There's so much action that the thrill is lost. Some nice technological gadgets though.
The Flash (2014)
Women are too dolled up
This is a fun, light TV program. The only problem I have with it is that the women are all dolled up and overly sexualised. They would be much more believable if they wore normal clothes to work, and relaxed clothes at home. Not every woman has to be wearing short skirts and wear bright red lipstick. Keep the women normal people and this show will gain in credence and respectability.
Keep it going!
The TV detective show Taggart continued despite the death of its main character and they did a great job of it. I like the new Taggart better than the original version. I'm glad that the Blake Mysteries will continue without Dr. Blake and I think Jean, who is a very strong character, can definitely pick up the lead. I just wish they didn't paint her up as a doll just because she has a more prominent role. She was more believable before when she was a normal human being, not all dolled up. It's just so out of her character. She's a down to earth woman, not a "check out my clothes and make-up" kind of woman. Anyway, I look forward to seeing more of the new series!
Worse than Inspector Morse
Let me first talk about Inspector Morse, which has no important women to speak of. There might be some female victims, but there are no women on the police force, no female doctors, no women in any position of importance whatsoever. I mention this because, Inspector Morse was produced more than 20 years ago, so one can 'somehow' understand how they would have missed the boat. Then came Inspector Lewis, in which they remedied the situation and one sees many normal women in many different positions of authority. Unfortunately, in ZEN, we go back to the stone age again. There are no women of importance. It's a man's world only. If there are women, they are either sex objects (i.e. their only value is their sex appeal), or they throw themselves at ZEN begging for sex, or they have gone mad. For a modern series, ZEN is not a healthy portrayal of real life where there should be normal women in many different situations and responsibility. I was not impressed at all.
