Re: The Crossing? anyone had a look?

Typical network sci-fi show - Starts with an intriguing premise (which is the easy part) that then goes downhill fast with cliches and plot holes and silliness; couple of good lead actors (especially Zahn) with the supporting roles mostly played by [more]

Re: R. Lee Ermey

Ermey had the distinction of being one of the very, very few actors that Kubrick ever allowed to improvise.

Ordeal by Innocence - NO SPOILERS

Just aired on BBC1, will probably be showing up other places soon enough. One of the best Agatha Christie adaptations I've ever seen (far superior to the recent "Orient Express" flick). Three episodes, the first is good, the second [more]

Re: Barry - a Bill Hader project ..

I'm also a Hader fan, this is definitely on my "To Watch" list.

If you want to see him in a dramatic role, check out "The Skeleton Twins". Good flick.

Re: Flexibility and body "age"

The Yoga "Sun Salutation" is a very good overall body stretch.

Re: Chris

Best ep of the season. Watching Chris and Dom go at it was an absolute hoot. I loved when almost the whole damn camp went marching to the well!

I wasn't sure who was going to be pulling out an idol at tribal.

Glad to see Chris [more]

McMafia

Good show about the son of a Russian ex-mob boss, raised straight in London but who ends up in his pop's old business. 8 eps, first four are good, last four are reallly good. Lots of location filming all over the world, budget must have been [more]

Re: Strike Back: Retribution

I liked the original, too. I've read nothing but bad things about this newest season, all pretty much mirroring your comments.

Re: Downsizing

Absolutely agree. It's two, two movies in one! Started off as a cool sci-f flick, then went off on tangents that, as you say, really had nothing to do with the original premise and weren't done well at all.

Flick was totally [more]

Let me see if I've got this straight...

So Trump's lawyer paid Daniels 130K out of his own pocket and without Trump's knowledge as part of an NDA that someone not named Trump did not sign in order to cover up an affair that did not happen?

I'm so confused.

Retribution

This is on Netflix, a BBC show originally called "One of Us". A newlywed couple is murdered, setting off a shocking chain of events between the two families. Intense, twisty plot. Excellent as a family drama and a crime [more]

Jesus Christ Superstar

Legend was fantastic, what a voice! Barellies was also great, absolutely nailed "I Don't Know How to Love Him". I thought the guy playing Judas wasn't up to my favorite song, "Heaven on Their Minds". (I've seen several [more]

Re: Counterpart - Ep.! - Gen'l Comment

3 eps in, I'm enjoying it. But the casting dept sure has a thing for young dark-haired women - Clare, Baldwin, and Anna all look very similar. Maybe this is on purpose and comes into play later in the story?

Molly's Game

Sorkin's best film to date; as great a film as The West Wing was a tv series. Should've been nom'd for best picture. The dialogue is incredible, especially in the scenes between Chastain (as Molly) and Elba (as her lawyer). Elba has a [more]

Re: I Can't Decide Who is More Sleazy

Belittling Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal or the media -- and making comments about Melania's motives in marrying or staying with Trump -- is just blame shifting.

I made no comment about Melania.

Daniels and McDougal knew [more]
