Crop And Save
This show is absolutely addictive! It's cheeky, campy, over the top. Sometimes it's very poignant and then it slams you with its inappropriateness! If you like Shameless, you'll get this as well! I really enjoy this show!
Quirky Little Movie
I'll start with the fact that I wasn't a huge Beatles fan back in the day BUT this movie made me a fan! What a quirky movie with such a surprise storyline. I loved that the casting (brilliant) and the music was fantastic! This wasn't one of those over the top or in-your-face movies that try too hard. I liked the pace, the amusing lines, and the little surprises that they threw at the you. All in all, a very enjoyable movie that I can recommend. Again, brilliant music!
A Discovery of Witches (2018)
Hadn't read nor heard of the books but found this show intriguing as I do many English series. I enjoyed the series so much that I decided to read the books after watching this 1st season and I LOVED them! What a completely refreshing and unique take on the witches, vampires and demon genre of which I have read many! I'm really looking forward to the next season!
The Loudest Voice (2019)
Crowe is Great!
It was very interesting to find out the back story about Fox and how Bill O'Reilly was created, Sean Hannity, and other players at Fox. Ailes truly was a scumbag and his wife is a not much better.
Life Itself (2018)
Wow! What a Surprise!
Saw the previews when it came out and I had absolutely zero interest in seeing it because I thought it was a typical Hallmark lovestruck type movie (yuk)... WRONG! Don't listen to the cold-hearted critics because they're WRONG! I loved the performances, the writing, the locations. I love movies that keep you guessing and go back and forth to cause a little confusion, and then, BAM, it all comes together! I didn't see many of the twists coming and the last moments of Rodrigo with his mother took my breath away. Her words mean so much to me because we are going through that same thing in my own family. See this movie. Take it for what it is and be prepared to feel. We all need to do that once in a while, don't we?
The Handmaid's Tale: Mayday (2019)
Great Season Finale!
Children, especially girls, are taught to be quiet, subservient and obedient, so it comes as no surprise that they were quiet for the escape. Although it wasn't quite believable that only one guard was at the airport, I didn't care. The arrogance and audacity of the men in leadership in Gilead would never allow them to believe anyone would dare to escape this way. It was a powerful ending to a crazy season and emotionally rewarding when 165 children made it to Canada. And, the cherry on top is that Serena is finally getting her due for orchestrating the rape of June. Great episode! Hell, Canada is looking pretty damn good these days!
This series is excellent! The twists and turns kept me glued to the screen until the very end. I want more. Acting is brilliant! Don't get why anyone wouldn't love this series since it parallels what we're dealing with currently.
I Wasted my Time!
I was intrigued by this show and kept watching it. Why? I have no idea! It was predictable, poorly acted and pretty bad. Wish I would have stopped early on! Don't waste your time!
Dead to Me (2019)
The acting, writing, production are outstanding! One of the best new shows on TV! I see lots of Emmys for this new show and deservedly so! Addictive!
Turn Up Charlie (2019)
I absolutely LOVE Idris Elba and have enjoyed mostly everything he's in. However, this series is just a waste of his talent. Not sure why he decided to do this series at this point in his career. Beneath him. The writing, music and overall production is lame. I couldn't get through the first episode before I turned it off.
This was such a good movie! Was it Oscar worthy? I don't think so. The characters weren't fleshed out enough for my taste, and I felt that the portrayal of David Duke wasn't realistic (I saw the actor, not the character). I did enjoy Spike Lee's take on the 70s, the music, the overall story. It could have been deeper, more profound than it was. I felt like it couldn't decide whether it wanted to be a comedy or a drama. Just came up short for me.
The Expanse (2015)
Stick With It!
I stopped watching after the first 2-3 episodes way back when. That is until my son insisted I go back and give it a shot. He knows how much I love good science fiction. Well, I'm almost done with S.1 and I am very impressed. It's complex and takes a bit of time to get good, then it gets great! It's one of those series that has to lay the groundwork, develop the characters, the storyline and then, smack, it all comes together! Can't wait to begin S.2 when things are supposed to get really interesting! So far, this is one of the best sci fi shows I've watched!
Van Helsing (2016)
I like It!
I'm a vampire/apocalypse junkie and I just found this series. I typically don't care for SYFY channel series because they are so subpar. This one starts out pretty typical of what SYFY series, but it does get much better. Not perfect, but very enjoyable. The acting is average but there are some standouts. I'm sticking with it because it satisfies my craving.
The Passage (2019)
Love the Trilogy; Series is Different
First, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the books! So well written and fantastic character development. I wasn't happy with the casting of this series but once I watched the pilot, I was okay with the actors. I see lots of reviews here trashing the TV series because it's different than the books. Well, most TV series and/or movies differ from their source material. It's inevitable. The key to enjoying the TV series (if you've read the books) is to separate them. I'm enjoying it even with the changes. I enjoy mostly anything vampire (although The Strain was seriously ruined on TV). So, I'm this one a shot and hoping for the best. Even though it's going to be less than the books (inevitable because the books are so great), if it's half as good we're still in the game! People: LIGHTEN UP, sit back and relax. Just enjoy it for what it is: a loose interpretation no different than MANY other TV adaptations.
A Million Little Things (2018)
I have to change my review of this show. It uses all the manipulative, tear jerking, moronic knee jerks when it comes to how bad things can get. Yes, every time something half way decent happens, something worse follows it. HOWEVER, all in all, this show addresses topics that are taboo: suicide, depression, marital infidelity, guilt, cancer, death, homosexuality, self doubt, etc. It goes there even though sometimes it's unrealistic. I've been up and down all season with this soap opera drama but the season finale gave me hope. It finally gave the title true meaning. I'm looking forward to S.2 of this overly dramatic take on life.
Really Good Movie
I didn't really know anything about this movie and just decided to watch it out of curiosity. So glad I did! The main actor, Thomas Jane, is incredible! I honestly did not realize who he was until I looked him up and then couldn't believe he was the same actor who played The Punisher and in Hung! He really shined playing this sick, demented, guilt ridden farmer. It's a slow moving movie with some disturbing visuals. Very thought provoking in how Jane brings this twisted character to life. I am seriously blown away by him! The director stretched the story out a bit long but it was worth it. I really like this movie!
Slow and Boring
I don't like Julia Roberts but will admit that she's a good actress. Therefore, I decided to give this a try. I watched 4 episodes and couldn't stay with it. Very boring. So slow. I love a good mystery and plots that you have no idea where it's going. This didn't do it for me. Not at all. I've read other reviews and wonder what I'm missing. Maybe it's my intense dislike of her as an actress. Not sure. Oh well.
The Snowman (2017)
Good Who Done It
I didn't read the book nor have I ever heard of it. Therefore, my opinion is based purely on my enjoyment of this film. I liked the actors in it, the story was good and the cinematography is beautiful. I don't understand all the low scores. While it wasn't great, it was definitely worth watching. Fassbender is always great this was no different. I followed the story easily and didn't find it choppy at all. All in all, a good movie.
The Shape of Water (2017)
Oscar Worthy? Really?
All the hype about being a beautiful movie love story, etc. is nothing but hooey. I LOVE science fiction, fantasy, whatever and this is not something that I would recommend to anyone. It's kind of ridiculous, has been done and just doesn't hold up. The fact that it won Best Movie is an insult to great movies like Three Billboards and Phantom Thread that were out the same year. The acting was average. Overall, I just did not like this movie and it was a waste of talent.
A Quiet Place (2018)
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and the acting was quite superb. Were there flaws in the script? YES! Kept asking myself these questions: Why not soundproof your living space? Why not live near the falls where sound is masked? Why not wear sneakers/tennis shoes rather than going barefoot? As for the pregnancy, it's inevitable that it will happen but pretty scary given the fact that a baby is all about noise! As for the beginning of the movie, when the parents set out and the smallest child is at the very back of the pack, why would that be allowed? Why would the father leave a very pregnant and due wife behind for such a lengthy time? Why would the mother not be concerned when her daughter was not present for such so long? How is it that the nail in the stair popped up and no one else stepped on it? Why could the alien break through the side of the silo but not rip through the top of the truck easily? Why wouldn't the military or other organizations figure out that high pitch sounds would immobilize the aliens? How could a shotgun kill this thing but major warfare didn't? So many questions! So many holes!
However, given all those questions and suppositions, I still enjoyed this movie and the pure intensity was an absolute delight! The acting of Emily Blunt and the daughter was fantastic. Krasinski did a great job and, hopefully, he will do better with his next project. This proves he has the chops but he needs to do better with the script. Boy, would I like a redo with this one because it could have been GREAT and a classic. Damn.
The 15:17 to Paris (2018)
Clint Eastwood's effort to pay tribute to these incredible heroes did not succeed. The script was terrible, the three main guys (the real heroes) cannot act one iota, and the film was filled with lots of empty meaningless space. The last 10 minutes were the best thing about the movie. That's when the heroes came alive and made an impact. I don't want to disparage these guys in any way, but this movie was just awful. If this is the kind of thing that Clint is doing is his advanced years, he needs to retire.
The Strain (2014)
Should Follow the Books!
I have read all three of the books in this trilogy and found them to be so creepy that they gave me some very restless nights! When I heard that a TV series was going to be produced, I got excited. Since I watch The Walking Dead, The Returned, and anything else with the "creep" factor, I hoped for something on par for The Strain. Once Corey Stoll was cast, it was obvious that the show was going to be a loser. David Bradley and Kevin Durand are terrific in their roles, but Stoll is playing Stoll like he always does. The special effects for the vampires is much better than expected but nothing else is holding up. If the director had held to the books, it would have been a much better series! There has been too much deviation and too little of the creepiness. The fact that NYC is being taken over by a "virus" and people are still going about business as normal is utterly ridiculous! The show does not portray the desperation, panic or complete abandon that engulfed the city as the books do. There doesn't seem to be any kind of escaping or caring about what happened to any of these people and where these "monsters" have come from! It's just coming across as pretty ludicrous. I am so disappointed. And again, I just can't get past Corey Stoll as Ephraim Goodweather. No way. He's an awful actor.
