Normal People (2020-)
I quit after two episodes for its robotic love story and for making a half, feel like a full hour. If its purpose is to instruct us on how to navigate teen angst, sex and love, I can't empathize. By twelve, I and most of my brethren were already bona fide sluts (thanks, daddies) and my input wasn't necessary. It reeks of social parenting, enforcement and naive privilege. The writers believe that if you preach hard enough, it will spill into reality. Daisy Edgar-Jones is neither ugly, weirdly or enticing enough to elaborate on an inconsistent sketch of a girl who is written to be all of those things. It's hypocritical. Paul Mescal is wasting his beautiful ass, nobody else matters and nothing happens. 05-May-2020
Hollywood magic starts in bed.
A propaganda film correcting past inequalities by imposing modern thoughts and politics into the mouth of history.
It preaches incessantly because we can no longer be inspired by people's lives as they lived it but how we now prefer it. (Good change comes when we learn from past mistakes, not when we erase them.)
Diversity exists as a pulpit, never integrating or understanding their purpose. Brother and sister needed to bring the humility, homework and incandescence that would compel us to believe they deserve the success they aspire to. Ms. Wong (Michelle Krusiec) completed her homework.
Rock Hudson, Vivien Leigh and Tallulah Bankhead portrayals. The ginormity of man beauty that was the Rock, is diminished when his facsimile stands shoulder to shoulder with Mira Sorvino and when he portrays him like a dork. Vivien was a cartoon transformer shifting from beauty to accent in a manic state. She needed to be all of it. Tallulah is actually very simple to study. You watch her one hour episode of I Love Lucy and follow it up with Bette Davis in All About Eve, legitimizing her. Too busy, huh?
The film within a film seemed abysmal.
I found it offensive that a black woman was portraying a white woman's life. It's like a man portraying a trans.
Free rein to rearrange is exciting only if it follows the rules of its generation. 03-May-2020
American Music Awards (2019)
I have no words... 25-Nov-2019
Velvet Buzzsaw (2019)
An expose of the art world with a horror addendum. It spends too much time characterizing a patronizing society and very little imagination bringing the art and kills to life. Jake wraps his character in queer banality and sexual confusion like the problematic characters of yore (Jodie Dallas from Soap and Steven Carrington from Dynasty.) I'm starting to believe he actually may be straight. 20-Nov-2019
I-Land, The (2019-)
Unbearable characterization and no adept drivers washing ashore. Out. 27-Sep-2019
I'm on the third episode. The curiosity is minimal, actor attitude is on high alert for no apparent reason and the dialogue is banal. Only a driver, expert at U-turns, can save it. 24-Sep-2019
Emmy Awards (2019)
I tuned in as radio while I prepared dinner. I missed the first hour because there was important wine to drink but I tuned at the beginning of the second. Almost everything I hated won. Hollywood creates realistic art but has trouble appearing realistic. Billy added flair and Halsey held my attention, everything else was soap. We need to be convinced that human representation isn't a part-time job. Being politically correct has made everyone boring. The host wasn't the problem. 22-Sep-2019
Love Island (2019-)
Finale. My manhood has been restored. I felt absolutely nothing. 13-Aug-2019
Toxic playpen wherein a woman's suffering and desperation is a man's empowerment. 01-Aug-2019
Young Sheldon (2017-)
Bringing the sweet back to comedy. I'll take it. 24-May-2019
The only way to siphon enjoyment is to abolish any thought that this Sheldon exemplifies Big Bang Sheldon. Mamas and sentimentality rule. 16-Jan-2018
Young Sheldon is only a shadow of the adult we know from Big Bang. Continuity frustrates because the child quips about things that the adult version deflected. The fun is limited because we know the child wont make it to maturity, is not invested in relationships and his family will barely exist in his present. 27-Sep-2017
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019)
Efron explored none of the options that would have freed his character to expose the monster in Ted Bundy. The film could have established more instances like the cuts and closeups during the verdict that had us seeing into his soul. The courtroom drama prances around the diabolical murders and the film is not interested in disrupting his image as a charmer (whom in real life had many ticks claiming otherwise.) 06-May-2019
There are plenty of classic sitcoms with tepid first seasons. I thought this could be one but its a strenuous task. The performers seem confused modernizing characters that existed in grand spaces with evolutionary representation. The comedy is 80s frivolity. The writers don't seem interested in pushing uniqueness out of replication. 05-Apr-2019
Russian Doll (2019-)
When Pinky Tuscadero introduced it we defied it. Their equality banner states that anyone can be boring. (I can't speak unidentifiable robot and it perturbed my lover.) 10-Mar-2019
Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club After Show (2019)
An excuse to protect the brand, handhold oblivious sensitivity and bully the crap out of anyone with an opposing or enlightening opinion. Opinions assist our evolution. Accepting every type of sexuality doesn't mean we have to partake of it. We have trained the future generation to be weak and the world is now our parents. 28-Feb-2019
Grammy Awards (2019)
We are due the respect to work hard and earn one. That's how equality starts. 07-Feb-2019
The moment you were bullied into inclusion over quality, you became as relevant as the $10.00 award MJ was inanely granted for being the King of Pop. If you keep awarding an industry that supports abuse and is devoid of any artistic merit you will keep losing our respect.
I'm not sitting through a Grammy Handmaid's Tale Part 2. I'm not that gay. 06-Feb-2019
New Year's Eve with Carson Daly (2018)
Carson was out. 01-Jan-2019
Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve (2018)
Gripping tightly to something that passed. 01-Jan-2019
