Dick Van Dyke Show, The (1961-1966)
Brilliant mad men and women. 30-Jun-2020
The gods have died, the penis has been declared an enemy, police have been abolished to savage lands to patrol, kill and rape what procreates and to harness survival goods for a scientifically mystic democracy. Gods are falsified to keep savages savaging and to keep their dystopian bubble, privileged and safe.
Sean Connery is brave, wearing a diaper throughout and doing action scenes in heels. The perfect brute with a thirst for knowledge.
The bubble society are eternals. They do not police, they judge. If you are found committing an offense, they age you.
John Boorman was brimming with ideas, executing spectacular visions and testing how far our imagination can travel. It was a beautiful ride until it crashed. There is a limit. 29-Jun-2020
Doctor Sleep (2019)
The exploration of the past was literary.
Alex Essoe's spot on Shelley Duvall is impressive because it harmonizes with the film's recognition of Kubrick's obsession with perfection.
It pays homage to the past but the film frees itself from Kubrick's grasp and becomes its own thing, maybe something King had in mind.
I was not impressed by the magicians until they ate a child.
Kids that are special get eaten.
Ewan embodies the spirit of a child.
The cast is multi-verse, the action rips and even though the story veers into its own thing, the return is pretty exciting. 28-Jun-2020
Ad Astra (2019)
Universal travel, planet saving and soaring daddy issues.
The director feeds us unique vistas and exhilarating action but makes us feel like we're riding a bullet train. It spins by, it's amazing, I'm glad I saw it but it didn't mean anything. It had no attachment to the story.
Pitt attacks like it's his story to tell. He's exhausted, full of gruff and self analyzation. It was a most personal rendition.
Tommy Lee is "grand" daddy to everything Pitt did. 22-Jun-2020
House of Flowers (2018)
S3. They smeared dark paint and punched holes into what could have been a masterpiece. Everything we cherished was punished, everything celebrated, got cursed and everything funny, nagged. The backstory was a cheap attempt to keep us interested in the life of a woman that presently doesn't exist. It's hurtful and pointless. Everything gay has become annoyance and everything Paulina De La Mora has been shredded. The only thing left is the frame. 29-May-2020
Scouring the family axis with joy. 02-Oct-2019
Daughter of Shanghai (1937)
Smuggling asians to America for slave labor. It's big on gumption because the makers gambled on a "good eye". There is a jolt of celebration in seeing ourselves being portrayed in a prohibitive era. The film is incomplete, scarcely budgeted and cold in character development. It's not its fault. What blesses it, is Anna May Wong's illumination and a supporting cast that keep it burning. The characters were typed to be as they were. 13-May-2020
Third Day, The (1965)
Can a man become an enlightened human if an accident causes him amnesia? Not if your mug is still wanted for murder.
George Peppard is grand business daddy, never demurring from blankness while still eliciting great face.
Elizabeth Ashley was privileged bitch wife, with an redemptive opportunity for love and a zestful beauty of another.
Sally Kellerman knew how to turn it on and shut men down.
Mona Washbourne elicited comic wit relief and parental heartbreak.
Roddy McDowell. The best cocksucker in Hollywood actually had other talents.
Arte Johnson crept trying to put a creepy face on a "love me" persona.
Music. It sounded like every summer blockbuster score rolled into one.
It's sumptuously over, to guiltily enjoy. 11-May-2020
One Day at a Time (2017-)
I will always have affection for these people but I truly hope they find that thing this season lost. 04-May-2020
S4E3. E1 and E2 had me worried. It was loud and high strung in celebration of a second chance, feeling like a parody of itself. Episode 3 brought masturbation realness and hilarity, peak character delight and mama diva (Moreno) steal moments. The hardest I've laughed all year. 10-Apr-2020
All about relationships. Gracias. 03-Mar-2019
Motivating argument about the rules modern life coerces. Proficiently displayed, adoringly regarded and stamping the sitcom with the purpose TV forgot. 13-Feb-2019
Justina Machado is excellent and Rita Moreno embodies everything we miss about a Golden Girl. They've added superior daddy squish and the support is amiable reinforcement. Cheers. 01-Mar-2018
At first glance, you are inclined to think that this is an exploitation of a classic and respected series with token latino stereotypes. By the fourth episode you realize that it chose this community to depict because it needs updating the most and it feeds right into the original's claim. It's hard raising a latin family when the men are scarce and the women try to empower themselves at the cost of tradition. There are times you will be transported to all those arguments Lear presented between classic characters, fair to each but being persistent that the last word goes to the changing present. Justina Machado plays Penelope Alvarez with the same amount as distraught, parental overprotection and survivor's challenge that Bonnie Franklin's Ann Romano did. Rita Moreno's accent is old fashioned pastiche but she is a full character, beloved and is having a helluva time making us laugh. The kids aspire for realness instead of cute and Schneider is cute without the creep. 30-Jan-2017
In order for a robot to gain more humanity, humans must become more robotic. (I think we're there.) 04-May-2020
Its undoing is its failure to convince us why the robots have so much human emotion. If you can't digitally master it, our brains will not conceive it.
Its spite and success is due to a brilliant presentation, staggering mamas and devastating daddies.
Wood gives Dolores the stature of uniqueness and the stoic elegance necessary to keep her fascinating but it's time for her to get her machine on.
Ed Harris. Daddy cowboy of legend. Gives great face, looks fun in bed and he's a cowboy.
Jeffrey Wright. This is the daddy you get high with. Great ideas and crazy sex.
Thandie Newton. Her act is fit and she'd be the action-figure I would buy if I was twelve.
Luke Hemsworth. A Hemsworth pillow. He's a snuggle daddy with survival skills.
Tessa Thompson. Proud to have her on any team.
Aaron Paul. Delicate daddy with violent tendencies and dedication or Next Door Daddy.
Vincent Cassell. Daddy, "yeah, I'd fuck him."
The fight scenes enlivened, real robots ignited and the future looked bright. (We'll see how they fuck it up.)
We feast on a most delectable future whilst our brains ping pong. Wright daddied up, Wood is glam assassin, Paul does his thing and Newton yums. 17-Mar-2020
Lighthouse, The (2019)
A psychology whose study is based at its present moment. Dafoe arghs and puffs with superiority and a seasoning of humanity. Pattinson is learning, maturing and blowing things up. A beautiful coupling. 03-May-2020
Frozen II (2019)
Its beauty is deceptive.
There is no thought or flourish to the story and no realism to the dialogue. Children have deeper conversations than this.
They are constantly bombarded by magical things, yet still wonder at the next.
The songs are its enemy. The songwriters write songs for talkers not classically trained singers. The musical artists could not wrap their talent around them. The words weren't tonal or melodious. (A thesaurus might have helped.) Each song was a giant whoopee cushion to the ear.
I wished the snowman had melted. (I'm sorry, I've spent too much time with Gervais.)
The presentation is built to make a grown man cringe.
If it weren't so gorgeous, I'd stop fucking it.
Bring on number 3. (Sigh) 02-May-2020
Others, The (2001)
Children and the help, quarantined with a compulsive mother obsessed with the idea of being as great as God. It's made of Hitchcock walls, star quality is legend of old and the understated score unnerves. It's refined spookery. Nic is powerhouse mama alleviator and authoritarian, putting the kids sweetly to bed, one minute and wanting to chop their heads off, the next. The ending is ruined once you know it but the lesson still rings true. Nothing ever is as it seems. 27-Apr-2020
Black Widow (1954)
Befriending pretty young things is bad for a man's health and his marriage. Van Heflin is joy of talent, uncoiling his anger at every surprise turn and thrashing women like an equal. Gene Tierney upholds the confused and doting wife, Peggy Ann Garner adds vulnerability to her con and Ginger Rogers sparkles as an empowered success story, dethroning men and failing at everything except bravado. People ponder with intelligence, the crime keeps flooding and the bitchfest hums. 23-Apr-2020
Little Fires Everywhere (2020)
Washington ached, Witherspoon gutted, daddy Jacks wrecked and the children revolted. The writing did not relinquish the exasperation caused by raising a family by impossible standards. Blanching racism with hypocritical correctness does not a solution create. The most difficult job on the planet is being a mother because every mistake, detracts years of happiness from their children's future. Good job. 22-Apr-2020
A mother's lifelong conundrum is why their kids don't want to be here. (I know! The world you brought us into sucks and you don't allow us to talk about it.)
A mother is always a better parent to someone else.
Reese's contentious rejection of her daughter's sexuality induced audience shudders of deviant delight.
Kerry Washington held her own with her child confrontation and then exploded into Olivia Pope during her court scene. Nice.
The racism resonated, the angst maturely handled, everyone glowed, everyone spoke and I listened. 15-Apr-2020
A young Mia and Elena are introduced with a backstory strong enough to hold its present walls. Young Elena struggles to convey Reese but only because young Reese has been downloaded to our memory banks. Young Mia is studious, observant, respectful and an uncanny joy because she's a pitch and tic perfect Kerry Washington that elicits the heart that older Mia lost. Writing was solid. 09-Apr-2020
A mama cold war, a class distinction an intellectual race riot. It theorizes that women only need to act like a mother to push the children through life. It states that racism's hypocrisy, sensitivity and overreaction will never mend it. The children are at a loss serving as parental investments of an unsettled future while practicing what they learn from them as much as what they hate.
Kerry Washington threw her TVQ out the window to portray a most questionable mother with a permanent scowl on her face, a confrontational outlook and some sort of mental instability. Witherspoon is the mother whose charity she thinks will excuse her parental ditto. She peels enough layers to inform us that she rationalizes that racism is wrong but the safety of her family comes first.
The baby drama is the new focal point and it may be its drawback. The coincidence was grand and mama Mia had no business offering a co-worker, who abandoned her baby, money that would have been better suited for her own daughter. It makes her hard to like.
It's nagging, addictive and igniting. 26-Mar-2020
RuPaul's Drag Race (2009-)
I'm sorry not being able to support or partake of what I hear is a stunning season but we don't get your channel in the pit, not even in the gay one. Regards. See you on a lesser channel, at a different time. 14-Apr-2020
I appreciate the learning but the training has to go with it. 15-May-2019
Heartbreaking sweetness (Ms. Davenport.) I'd take your footage. No, I wouldn't. Maybe. 15-Mar-2019
Gorgeous pretense. Exactly what I needed. 13-Mar-2019
Finale. Salud. 29-Jun-2018
Reunion. It was about gay pride...the real one. 22-Jun-2018
The girls brought me happiness. 18-Jun-2018
The highlight was watching Ru bring adorableness to her drag. 26-May-2018
Good taste in body parts, great camaraderie between the girls and the showdown was built for the audience to stand as the girls bow. 22-May-2018
It was everything the last all-stars forgot this show was about. 27-Apr-2018
Ru was art deco doll, the girls brought fire and fantastical whimsy to drag and an integrated roster of pretty boy. Christina flashed her gay badge which warranted hope for an artistic comeback that only a supreme deserves. I'm excited. 23-Mar-2018
