Legend Of Lizzie Borden, The (1975)
A document of what may have occurred in a family downed by a favorite daughter. The film has a "Carrie" vibe that suits it. It mixes courtroom drama with home hysterics. Elizabeth Montgomery was all witch with only a hint of Samantha. The film was moderate with details and motives. You get the idea but not the full package. Elizabeth kept the film rolling with gestures suggesting things that weren't written and being an unappreciated force. Katherine Helmond was a sister witch with serene class. Fritz Weaver was a super-daddy warlock. I don't understand why his wife looked like a maid. The movie needs a clean-up; the performances don't. 06-Dec-2021
Sexy gorgeous creatures don't preach, they do. 04-Jul-2021
The beautiful ones return in high style and peak bloom.
Fluidity is tunneled, pummeled and charged. The freedom to inherit all relationship prospects is an elite politic that facilitates mass hurt because the kids that invented it are incapable of successfully mastering it. They're human.
The parents do as Oprah taught them and heal most of their miracles' hemorrhage with gifts and money.
The beauties confusing the system to reclaim justice was resplendent.
The mystery continues and concludes, the ones are masters of bitchiness and heartbreak and the thread is reinforced nylon. Brava! 29-Mar-2020
The season was mapped mathematically and it hit every point. The actors are snug in their roles and stamping their characters. The drama makes you talk to yourself, the police work is thought out and everything looks delicious. Cool as fuck. 23-Sep-2019
They represent with no restraints and the teens are regarded with soul. The societal menace is heavier, coddling is out and the hurt is overwhelming. They are fighting a world adults complicated with wee survival skills. Beauty is diverse and it lingers because the writers keep tearing at it. 23-Nov-2018
Mare Of Easttown (2021-)
The characters were overloaded with ache, the crime mystery was one coil after another, the actors wrung the shit out of drama but the whole was too "by the book" to matter. I'm old, I've seen this shit before. 31-May-2021
S1E3. It's not a dead horse crime investigation like I thought. Lone cop is overwhelmed by the demands of her town, her family and friends. It takes a stranger to make her realize that she's more than a badge. Guy Pearce is her release and her guilt. A teen has disappeared while another has died. Per the Hollywood bible, actresses must downplay beauty and uplift macho toxicity in their stride to assimilate toughness. Kate Winslet is a savior of intelligence not might. Her macho is uncomfortable because it doesn't feel genuine. The ferocity of a female always shines through. Let it. Aren't lady heroes supposed to bring balance? There are all types of lady cops in the world but Hollywood keeps choosing the profile of a lesbian that is not a lesbian. Evan Peters is adorable. The teens are realistic in a snot nosed kind of way. Jean Smart is my Endora. 29-May-2021
Acapulco Shore (2014-)
The men are supreme alpha dogs. The girls keep tripping on penis and alcohol on their way to womanhood. Welcome to a fucker's paradise. The sexes loathe each other as much as the American version except the Mexican men are allowed to call the women messy, hairy and girlish whores as the women are free to be messy, hairy and girlish whores. 18-Mar-2021
Victim of Beauty (1991)
Beauty contestant provokes the kidnapping of her baby sister. Sheriff is in town gunning to bring the monster to justice. He fails as many times as he provokes. Jeri Ryan embodied that special something that makes us scream "how can so many awful things happen to this dear child?" Because it's all true! There are surprises and plotholes but mostly there's Devane's gorgeous ape face and a goddess in disguise (Ryan) burning rubber. The crime investigation sucked. 31-Jan-2021
Sister, The (2020)
Man and his mate bury man wife sister. Mate later returns to inform husband that they need to move the body because of digging. Russell Tovy's choo choo train is fully equipped. He is frantic, deceiving, psychotic and the face of many successful emotions. The mate is annoying but the cast is bright. When the story reaches preposterous, the air bursts out of the balloon. 25-Jan-2021
Tiny Pretty Things (2020-)
S1E10. I had the anal inclination to re-edit the dance sequences but that's none of my business. The beats of bitchiness were right on point. 25-Dec-2020
S1E8. Wet dream. I want Ramon to ravage Oren. 23-Dec-2020
We are more diverse, more insightful and sexually inclusive. Why the hate? They are empathetic and compassionate for an episode and distrusting for the next. Everyone is out for themselves and only housesitting relationships. If it didn't seem like reflection, I'd question it harder. Still hot. 20-Dec-2020
S1E1. I was thrilled by the opening but it went off-key. I am invested in the bandit but I am intrigued by the suspects. They are comprehensible messes whose extreme choice of sport labels them aggressive super achievers. They thrive, compete and celebrate because of pain. Ballet is a cruel career choice and the series doesn't dilute it. It has bits for everyone. LGBTQ lives are lived without the need of gay preachers to explain it. It's sexy, provocative, enticing, dance crushing and trashy. Don't fuck it up. 17-Dec-2020
Undoing, The (2020-)
The killer is not who I thought. It was a slow tread to the courtroom but that gave us time to loom over some well illuminated characters. Noah Jupe was playing with and absorbing the masters. Hugh makes you want to be Elena. Noma Dumezweni was a commandment and the voice of Darth Vader's mother. Donald Sutherland found an organic hard-on. Lilly Rabe applies her frenetic edge to a woman in charge. Mathilda DeAngelis is a rocket. Ismael Cruz Cordova is a missile. Edan Alexander is sweet. Rosemary Harris is a Meryl inspired craftsman. Nic's icicles are made of diamonds. The story is as much about marriage and family as it is about crime. Marriage is the victim. The direction needed a style makeover but the words came to life. 01-Dec-2020
The series is too distant to profile which makes it hard to cling to. Nicole eerily returns to "Far and Away" and "Dead Calm" personas and it's intriguingly off-putting. Hugh Grant is still the guy whose cummerbund you want to fix and the mystery contains possibilities. I think I know who did it. 29-Oct-2020
Someone Has To Die (2020-)
Boy sent to Mexico to avoid war and to study returns home, with a seductive male dancer in tow. The 50s saga unravels sex identity issues and makes the threat of a snitch, survival mode. The son is grappling with gaiety while enduring a fake proposal to a girl he really hates. The father is the lord of his castle oblivious of the killing, cheating, debauchery, scandals and crimes of his ships. One little spoiled girl twirls her tongue to avenge her betrothed's rejection, her goal is to sink his ship. The more ships honking their horns, the harder the lord's Titanic sways. The lord's job is to hunt homosexuals, jail them and enforce corrective violent therapy. Cecilia Suarez does not talk like her "House of Flowers" character because she is beautifully channeling a mother worried for her free-spirited son whose desire to escape is also hers. Carmen Maura is a killer played by a "killer". The three boys enticed in their own individual manner. The dancer showed us his moves and impressed. The director shot his ass and it was magnificent. Daddy looked younger without clothes. There are potholes. The boys relationship could use better clarification. Why were they friends? Exter Esposito is still divine. Manolo Caro develops powerfully diverse characters and then punishes them. This time it worked. 19-Oct-2020
I May Destroy You (2020)
Michaela Cole is a wordmeister and her vision keeps compelling.
I do hope rape doesn't define a woman's lifetime. According to this representation, most men are rapists. It forced me to calculate how many more times I was sexually assaulted when I thought I was hooking up and added another 156 to the other hundred molesters. Bang Zoom! 16-Jul-2020
It courageously tackles the subservient role a black woman plays in interrace sex. (This show is not kidding.) 26-Jun-2020
Michaela Cole represents a harmful truth that is socially forgiven until the effects punt it. Her soul swings with support staff. I'm in. 15-Jun-2020
Stranger, The (2020)
The wows were cross-stitched to perfection. 05-Feb-2020
I'm only two episodes in but I think it's about a future where snitching trends...like, "save the world" kind of..."trendy." I'm intrigued. 02-Feb-2020
Midnight Kiss (2019)
Gays garnering the right to be slaughtered on film like they're straight brethren. Writing representation is limited to watching half a season of Drag Race. The eye candy is squirmy and the serial getup has no sex appeal or fright. 27-Dec-2019
I was going to complain that the corn was killing my daddies (women included) but then Daddy Michael, Daddy Athena and Christmas happened. You bastards! 09-Dec-2019
Welcome back daddies! 25-Sep-2019
Unexpected thoughtfulness. 08-May-2019
I no longer have Buffy but I still have you. The last two episodes wrung every artistic sentiment my mind could withstand. Thank you. 06-Apr-2019
The company allowed the schmuck in me to celebrate Christmas. 02-Dec-2018
The daddy (Bassett and Hines included) heroics are inventive, the pulse quickens with current thinking and our hearts get pulled. 25-Oct-2018
A great action piece can energize an attention span but plugging the acting talent to words that allow them to emote beautifully is sublime. 12-Mar-2018
We're in dire need of heroes to save us and Murphy's latest gift is ready to give them to us. Connie Britton and Peter Krause have returned to dominant form, Angela Bassett is having fun and Oliver Stark is a fragile delicacy. The stunts wallop, the words are thoughtful and inclusive and Ryan and crew are experimental ninjas. 16-Jan-2018
Earthquake Bird (2019)
The heat emanating from the threesome should have sufficed to generate a clearcut mystery on its own but inserting the crime interrogation, downgraded it. I stayed for the vibrant actresses and the sexy terminator. 29-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
