Re: Oz, the not so great or powerful

I finally got around to this, or as much as I could take, which was about 40 mins in. Franco is terribly miscast, Oz looks like a Saturday morning cartoon, and the bellhop monkey was creepy-looking as hell. When you can make talented actors like [more]

Fear the Boring Dead - 5/1/16

Cripes, even the villains are bland in this show. I made it about halfway thru the ep, maybe I'll finish it while I'm vacuuming or something.

Deadpool

Greatest opening credits ever. Followed by a thrilling action sequence that manages to make extremely gory violence very funny.

Unfortunately, the film goes completely off the rails after that. First, the lead character gets cancer (in a [more]

Line of Duty - Season 3

Another great season for this excellent Brit crime series about a police anti-corruption unit (the Brit version of Internal Affairs). Double-crosses, triple-crosses, long-buried secrets, and twists and turns abound! Plus they brought back the amazing [more]

Re: I loved

still doesn't know if the girls and Joe ever knew what the Super Idol power was...

I've wondered about that, because after the final vote for Scot was read last week there was that looooong pause (when he was trying to get the other [more]

I loved

Scot's PO'd expression as he sat there on the jury at tribal.

I thought Tai was a goner. (Me, I woulda played the idol.) He's in a good position now to go to the final, what with the idol and the extra vote. I think it was a poor strategy by [more]

Re: A History of Violence

You might also enjoy "Eastern Promises" Another violent film but
very good as well.


As good as A History of Violence is, Eastern Promises is even better. I'd even say it's a great film and Mortensen and Naomi [more]

Fear the Walking Dead - 4/24/16

When they decided to go ashore I thought "Gee, I wonder if they'll run into any zombies?" When Travis dived under the boat I thought "Gee, I wonder if he'll run into any zombies?" When Dwight the Troubled Teen went wandering off [more]

Re: House of Cards - Season 4?

Up to ep 9. The show has really found its stride again this season. I loved the meeting where Frank and Conway are supposed to be having a major policy discussion about ICO but all they actually do is snipe at each other and play video games. Great [more]

Inside Any Schumer

I thought Trainwreck was a hoot so I decided to check out her series. Only watched one ep, it was ok. I've read some comments it gets better so I'll stick with it.

Re: Worse Idea For A Remake

I'm looking forward to this one. But then, I think TM7 is overrated. It's fun, but not great by any means.

Bad Idea for a Remake

I really don't care when they remake movies, even if it's a classic. Doesn't spoil my memory of the original.

That being said, this is a really, really bad idea for a remake:

Re: RIP Prince

They once asked Eric Clapton how it felt to be the worlds greatest guitarist. He said " I don't know, why don't you ask Prince"

Ha! Great quote. That's about as high praise as there could be.

Re: House of Cards - Season 4?

Finally started watching it, currently 4 eps in. Agree, so far it's much better than last season. Frank vs Claire, I'm loving it.

RIP Prince

Does this belong here? I don't know, he was on tv every now and then, so why not?

Only 57. Much too young. Such a talent, one of my favorite musicians. Purple Rain is one of the greatest albums of all time.

No way Jason was in on it. That bromance would have gone to the end. Turds of a feather, those two.

Re: The wicked witch is dead

Yes! Yes! Yes!

That wasn't just a blindside, that was a public humiliation. Big Bad Scot, so arrogant, preening and bragging about how he was totally safe and in complete control of the game and calling the shots and... bang! So long, [more]

That's one I'm definitely looking forward to. All four of the previous films have been excellent.

Re: Summer Blockbusters

Bateman's a very good actor, comedy and drama. I remember seeing him as a teenager on a really mediocre family series in the 80's and thinking he was very talented, way above the material. Then he pretty much disappeared for, like, 20 years, [more]
