No matter how awful everything turned out the first season of the 1999 series Roswell will always remain one of my top 10 favorite first seasons of all time. The show was utterly brilliant in terms of storytelling, character set up, initial world building, use of music and more. It still pains me how all of that good will was squandered in Season 2.
I think I’m the only person in the world who did not get the hype for HBO’s True Detective. I tried to watch the first season but it never clicked. It had amazing acting, but I found the pacing made it a slog to get through and most importantly its story telling gimmick of multiple time jumps confusing and simply broke the narrative flow. Those same issues have returned for Season 3.
There are a lot of movies out there about people who “make it.”
It’s just one of those story tropes we humans seem to love. The outsider, the underdog, the kid who gets bullied at school—when we see stories about how people with humble beginnings go on to win the day, the girl and/or a thick stack of cash, it’s fun!
Is this the real life or is this just fantasy, caught in a landslide, no escape from reality. Yes I opened this review with a lyric from Queen’s most famous song, sue me. Bohemian Rhapsody is actor Rami Malek’s love letter to the late, great Freddie Mercury. It’s too bad the movie doesn’t hold up to his amazing performance.
Now that movie pass is imploding where does a movie lover turn to? Since I recently moved, I’m not able to attend Press Screenings that often as the nearest press location is over an hour away so what do I do? I signed up for AMC’s A-List Program. After being burned by MoviePass and Sinemia I was skeptical about A-List. Check out the video below to see my thoughts.
I’m a sucker for Robin Hood films, to date I’ve loved every retelling of this yarn. There’s just something about the tell that is timeless and gets me every time. I’m not sure what people expect when they go see a Robin Hood film. I aspect a little romance and lots of swashbuckling this current incarnation delivers exactly what I want out of a Robin Hood film. The latest take on the classic tale, simply titled, once again, Robin Hood borrows heavily from the much hated 1991’s Kevin Costner’s Classic Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Personally, I loved the 1991 film.
All year I’ve been hearing about how good the trailer for A Star Is Born was and all the early praise for just the movie trailer made me want to avoid seeing this and I’m a huge Lady GaGa fan. However, I don’t like walking into a movie with any preconceived notions, a film like this that has been praised to the high heavens before it was even officially screened. I believe nearly every version of this film has gotten award season love and the latest installment will be no exception. The story is timeless.
Who says physical media is dead? Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s just announced that due to demand it is increasing the production of run of Batman: The Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition blu-ray box set to 70,000. To recap this is the first time the show has been fully Remastered since its broadcast airing from 1992-1995. The new box set also includes the digital copy code. The box set hits the street October 30, 2018 for $112.99. I’m a little salty because I own the DVD Set which has a horrible transfer.
As someone who used to avidly collect Daredevil back in the 80s and early 90s, I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. It’s a solid show, but it is so relentlessly dour and one note that I just found it hard to get into. Season Three Daredevil is devoid of “humor” any kind of “lightness” and almost every character is just depressing to watch. Everyone on this show look like they need a psychiatrist as everyone is suffering from some form of PTSD. Netflix made the first 6 episodes available for review and honestly it was a struggle to get through the first three.
Rejoice DC Fans you finally have the Batman you’ve always wanted to see on television! Only it’s not Batman, it’s Robin and he is kicking so much ass that I was giggling like a schoolgirl. I didn’t talk about my reaction to the Comic-Con trailer in July because I was decidedly meh about it. My initial reaction was “Oh joy, a dark, grim, Robin…How original.” I brushed the show off as just going for the look at how edgy we are,“tee-hee, fuck Batman”. However, Titans is much more than that and I was blown away by how much I’m loving this show. The launch trailer did not do the series justice.
