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
Go Ask Alice (1973)
Diary of a teen with an addictive personality. It is nice to hear the words of tragedy being spoken by tragic and even though it enlightens, it doesn't resolve. Addictions occur the moment you can't latch on to life. It provides good details on soft parenting, physical instability, sex and pressure. The film bestows as many blessings as calamities. Griffith gives good priest, Mackenzie Phillips haunted and the Shat(ner) tries to steal the film with his blinkers. 24-Feb-2020
After Life (2019-)
Gervais profiles the catabolic generation and spins their sadness into comical whimsy. He is perfect denouncing life and burning it. It's a reality few can see. It talks maturely about aging, death, suicide, loneliness and contempt for the life that bore it. (Ricky's witticisms are wicked clatter.) 17-Feb-2020
Locke & Key (2020-)
I don't question the magic of the keys, only where you stick them to achieve it. 10-Feb-2020
Safe Harbour (2018-)
Would you save a life if you think it puts you in jeopardy? It gripped and swerved evenly between the privileged and the do goodness, accentuating all the flaws, the heart and the life balancing we all endure. Each wields power that the new world has entitled them to but misconception, anxiety and unburdening (through violence) keep manifesting the elephant in the room...stereotyping to get a point across or to do more harm...to run away from it for as long as the effect is not needed.
It loses two moons because it ended with everyone getting a car and it feels the threat was for naught. The ending is a whimper. Life has consequences. 08-Feb-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
Invitation To Hell (1984)
It was a film better tolerated in the present but still a victim of its limitations.
There are golden nuggets:
Wes Craven kept it tight. The spacesuit caper and some action sequences spit art
Soleil Moon Frye does a spot-on imitation of Golem, before his time
La Lucci is a playful and committed demonic force. Tacky with hilarity, bitchiness and nerve
Robert Urich was pretty, in charge and in demand.
Witcher, The (2019-)
Daddy is something else but it was the ladies that kept me glued. 18-Jan-2020
Of course, I'm disquieted by the froggish whisper of the Witcher but he delivers comitted action moves and steady alpha charisma. Interspersed characterization maintains the show's freshness. (Is it part of its mythology that all pretty twinks get killed?) 15-Jan-2020
Lost In Space (2018-)
Season 2 served so much syrup it almost drowned the pancakes. The Robinsons' catastrophe meter wriggled so much I wondered why they're not in pieces. Am I supposed to notice that the robot has a big ass? The action rumbles, throttles and shakes you down. Big-screen treatment for a TV mindset. Dr. Smith is a hoot bitchier, the actors are scratching their posts and I'm still in. 05-Jan-2020
Even though the orangutan inspired robot invalidates its predecessor the show succeeded in modern interpretation. There's papi squish, mama force, baby hutzpah and multicultural opportunity. Constructive sci-fi action and Parker Posey's iteration of Dr. Smith as the ultimate lying bitch are its standouts. 29-Jun-2018
If you can make me laugh through a funk, you're a winner.
Andrew Scott's voice makes underwear blubber. His awareness at Fleabag's asides were adorably funny. The priest brought sexuality, abandonment, modernity and fulfillment.
Everything Olivia Colman touches is funny elite.
Brett Gelman is a slimelord.
Claire is whom I cheer for and Sian Clifford has achieved "great sparring partner status."
The writing is wicked, the ideas are bursting for the new age and it knows when to apply heart.
I wait for the day when Fleabag breaks down walls to give Ms. Waller-Bridge the legendary acting status she deserves... having a glorified fit.
(S2E3 was responsible for my LOLs. Award drama was priceless.) 29-Dec-2019
When they express heart over hate, it soars. 10-Dec-2019
I can't imagine a more wicked performer to bitch about life and eviscerate men. 09-Dec-2019
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The (2017-)
The calibre still flickers.
The formalization of Shy Baldwin played diligently.
Sterling K. never hurts.
Luke Kirby squishes like a troublemaker that can't see beyond a certain time.
Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle represent its class and the race to catch up to a new world before it changes again.
Michael Zegen, great nips, awesome accent and a big dreamer.
I didn't understand why Zachary Levi was getting another chance but he proved me wrong. The gorgeous giant had something to say and it was great. He left Shazam on a CGI set.
Alex Borstein, representing everything we want to see in the world, slaughtered like a butcher.
Rachel Brosnahan plays the titular with the knowledge that her ambition may not enhance her personal life but she's got to do it.
Soul searching, family values, friendships, fame, failure and a point of view. Fuck you Palladinos. (I mean that lovingly.) 27-Dec-2019
I think Amy-Sherman Palladino and Mr. Palladino have turned me bi-cranial. I can't hate them because they keep saying what I'm thinking. Mazel.
The addiction starts right away but the spell is cast in the middle of season 2. There's Gilmore flash wit, character peak and writing punctuation. I may not have swayed in season 1 but I'm swaying now. 18-Sep-2019
No matter how cute, when a dog spends most of its time yipping and yapping we are incapable of seeing its soul. The writing punctures, the music helps and everyone is professional but I have to wonder if that's all there is. When we insert the sensibilities of our present to make the past more tolerable we are erasing the essence of time that brought it to life. 16-Sep-2019
I looked up information on autism to confirm that they are representing it realistically and they are. Sam is a powerful tool in the family. They are tied and pulled by him, he propels them to reach beyond the limits but they always snap back.
Jennifer Jason Leigh (Elsa) professes symptoms of autism by default. Her motherhood consists of panicking for her special son whilst attempting to care for her lonely daughter. When Jennifer goes naughty she is bathed in organic youth.
I'm informed. 23-Nov-2019
Influence, The (2019)
Mother issues. Granny is scary, child is scarier and even though the threads are incomplete, the kills poke. 21-Oct-2019
Swoon worthy romance uplifted by an amiable cast, pensive writing, a beautiful girl and a squish with a killer accent. 18-Oct-2019
The revelations were gratifying, the show is invested and having Allison take the donuts, made me like her more. You can imagine how I felt when she shared them and ate them. 09-Oct-2019
Allison Tolman is making it her business to uphold the intrigue. I like that. 28-Sep-2019
