My Little Eye (2002)
It's all vegan undernourishment until the end where the meat and potatoes are served. 15-Sep-2019
Better Than Us (2018-)
The show is better than us. It carves a world where man can receive restitution for a feminist movement. It's not about robots but how we perceive them to be the sexual gratifiers, the mothers and the household maintainers of the future world. The more freedom granted to a woman the less a man needs her. The men are also tested by libido, masculine energy and faithfulness. Women have the capacity to liberate themselves from subjugation, even in a robotic state.
For every false move there are two excellent ones to eclipse it. This is the robot myth that should have preceded Battlestar. 11-Sep-2019
Robot fabulosity pulls you in but it's the intertwining story threads that keep you posted. 08-Sep-2019
Nun, The (2018)
Though self-evident and ridiculous the thrill spectacle contains mint scares. 07-Sep-2019
Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018)
The quest for survival does not always entail good judgment. Melissa immerses herself in a character that is designed to grate, frustrate and devour and supplies her with a humanity we can sympathize with. We ride happily along as she eviscerates the establishment that pulled the pedestal from under her because she wouldn't play the game. The support is top notch and the writing barks. 05-Sep-2019
I can hear Paxton say "demon" all day. I can fall into melodious dreams hearing McConaughey narrate. The film straddles the supernatural with an organic crime story. It was a story that needed to be told straight or absolutely bonkers. The film lost the opportunity to provide readied performers with characters that could outshine them. It came close but its confusion expired it before the finish line. 04-Sep-2019
Sinner, The (2017-)
It doesn't best the first but it doesn't disrespect it either. The star quality is shared as a group with Pullman adding concerned exhaustion to his detective. The new mystery accelerates, deepens and hurls. Gay swatch, moppet intensity, daddy squish and juicy revelations abound. 03-Sep-2019
It terrifies with the psychology that no matter how virtuous the effort, parents can't take pride in giving life if they can't provide a way for the distressed to enjoy it.
Jessica Biel may be putting up walls but they're decorative. She has the same light that burned Farah's wings on.
I couldn't put the book down. 07-Jul-2018
Misfits are created when the understanding of being born is confounding.
Each episode incorporated a distinct flavor that elevated character development and story arc. The whole is a buoyant and succulent melange.
The writing was sharply on edge, the directors' wings were boundless and the actors (especially Z) rose to every unforgiving task.
Z's parade at finale was unexpected, deserved, joyous and brilliant. The music speaks. 01-Sep-2019
The carnival episode was a modern Hitchcock delirious delight. Zen's etch of a drug addict cuts deep. 31-Aug-2019
Etching a recognizable world and stripping Zendaya of Disney cuteness. Feels like home. 28-Aug-2019
Gorgeous ladies...and men, musical zest, smashing show and a hopeful ending. It broke it and healed it...the heart. 28-Aug-2019
"The Man That Got Away." Judy defined it and Billy spelled it out. 25-Aug-2019
It gave us a vogue teaser, it made gold edible and the love story was sexy. 23-Aug-2019
Ryan's episode didn't hand me an enigmatic vogue but it gave me beauty of soul. 23-Aug-2019
Do I have to vogue to earn a gay family like this or is that sentiment stuck in the past? The show retains its high sheen fabulosity but ballroom direction needs to stress its entertainment notch in order to fly closer to Billy Porter's coordination. 21-Jul-2019
The release was due to its faithful history and devotedly charged performances. 10-Jul-2018
Every week it grows in beauty and endearment. One more moon and Papa Murph makes me blow.
Christopher Meloni is now inducted into Daddy Squish Hall of Fame. 03-Jul-2018
It's about family. 27-Jun-2018
Ryan is tapping into the artistic awakening of its raw talent. Learning as they go. 24-Jun-2018
The seed has been planted but in order for it to grow it needs to escalate the celebration. 23-Jun-2018
Boys, The (2019-)
Shue clenches frustration devoutly, Starr chomps evil gleefully and the end punctuated surprisingly. 26-Aug-2019
Graduating superheroes to the next level...consequences. 17-Aug-2019
Exploring the culture was a bright spot but the frights were devoured by silliness. 10-Aug-2019
The first contains the scare, the second and third loses the surprise but I'm still hooked. (Not scarier than mama.) 08-Aug-2019
Stranger Things (2016 -)
PS: I spent most of the season wanting to comb everybody's messy hair. 08-Aug-2019
The magic dissipated in #3 but unity, bromance, and a pulverizing ending held it up. 06-Aug-2019
#2 gratified every sense with throb and tenderness. 29-Nov-2017
There can't be much to disconcert when with every dedication and homage you are dealt original cards with likeable imprinted players and a perplexing with soul reflexing game.
Wynona is unwavering in motherhood vs sanity as David Harbour is papa Bear strength. The kids are inherent, funny and affecting. Millie Bobbi Brown is tasked with conveyance of eye speak and she handles it beautifully.
Success is achieved through inspiration not impersonation. 29-Aug-2016
Big Little Lies (2017-)
An assorted bouquet of beautiful flowers in full bloom. The house versus Meryl Streep was everything. 22-Jul-2019
The entire production splatters art all over its walls. Did Meryl Streep accept this role to scare Trump? Brava. 20-Jul-2019
The ladies continue marveling and the word is written by writers who have explored life. 13-Jul-2019
Children hear the darndest things. Meryl's on the case, the ladies are grinding and the drama has my attention. 30-Jun-2019
At end, Nicole steals a chunk of it, Reese gets a moment and Shailene is unfortunately relegated to reaction scenes. The mystery was resolved with little drama and less surprise and hints suggested in earlier episodes were ignored or swiftly wrapped. Female courtesy is fully established but parenting is still in question. Why did it take any child this long to squeal and to trust their parent? Is the intervention of a child's world out of bounds? That is the mystery never answered. 04-Apr-2017
Every week the expectation of even a kernel to a hint of the mystery is doused. The only way to compensate this frustration is if the finale depends on the reveals to make it explosive. In the interim we get three forcible actresses who put their star quality first as the actor in them unravels. Reese dominated the first episodes by being a fierce competitor and an overprotective presence without depriving us of the charm that made her a star. Shailene Woodley is capable and subdued but her character is a question mark that has not been classified. Laura Dern inhabits the witchy and bitchy suburbanite spreading insecurity and paranoia to all her obstacles. Nicole Kidman's story is hardest to digest as she has to withstand sexual exploitation and abuse but once she opens up she never flinches and she makes you recall her real marriage to an alpha. The scenes of her in counseling are beautifully open. Alexander Skarsgard is the epitome of the model husband and actor but nothing else. 23-Mar-2017
Below Deck: Mediterranean (2016-)
The Flintstones put aside shenanigans to celebrate hard work but only the certified kind. Gifted is out, snobbery is forever. 20-Jul-2019
Wet snouts all season. 12-Sep-2018
I guess its okay to present a woman with an unknown penis if it has vodka in it. 18-Jul-2018
The client reference sheet for food exemplifies how the rich can add waste to the environment. 13-Jun-2018
Rules and liability specifications are locked, there's room for us to guess which crew member will fuck up the hardest and the first clients were "Plantation Rich" (they think having money means they pay for enslavement.) 16-May-2018
Highlights include a lady captain and a lamentable pup, love-thrashed by a pocket siren that exhumes growls and sniffs from the male crew. Hannah quips her way through most of it but then succumbs to the lunacy that all are indulging in. Kate, your turn. 16-Aug-2017
It's everything the initial is yet augmented in the unbalanced crew department. The commander seems perplexed by his spiky helpmates and we shall be banqueted until our brains too become unhinged. It's a preferable fix to the housewives and it fulfills AHS: Asylum munchies. The hottest is the most baked. 30-Jun-2016
Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse (2018)
The soundtrack doesn't bother to incorporate itself, Peter Parker sounds froggy but the art reaches magnificence. 11-Jul-2019
There are tidbits I didn't know. Child genius, warped sensibilities and family hypocrisy. The catalog is immense as is the concept of each song. Many odes to so many things only we can remember. The razzle dazzle is there, the actor siphons the legend's anger and the music remains inspired. A life worth celebrating. 05-Jul-2019
