I agree. Like so many members of The Knick's large ensemble cast, Eve Hewson has chops. Not only is she a little beauty, she is a fine young actress. Clive Owen is a wonder, though. He elevates...

Thanks for another excellent review, Ralph. I have read everything Thomas Harris has written multiple times and Hannibal Lecter is my all time favorite literary monster. The writers of Hannibal...

I agree that Bohannan didn't necessarily intend to inflict a mortal wound but after he saw where he had stabbed Elam he realized that the wound would almost certainly be fatal. That's when I think...

I liked this week's episode too. Somehow, the show continues to entertain me while avoiding (albeit narrowly sometimes) jumping the shark. As many of us were predicting earlier, the governor's two...

A parlor game could be invented for Most Underserved Oscar winners. I try not to think to deeply about that sort of thing, though, for this way lies madness. :) Instead I tend to categorize such...

Just watched the season (Series?) finale and immediately after deleted my season pass. Not only does the show get darker and uglier all the time, it's level of preposterousness increases at the same...

I'll be damned, partner, that was a great catch! I love Da Vinci's Demons but didn't realize that Tom Riley played the swashbuckling Robin Hood in the latest Doctor Who. No wonder I loved the...

I liked Coma too. Michael Crichton certainly was not the greatest screenwriter or director who ever came along but he made a number of movies I really liked, among them Westworld (1973) and The...

I hadn't heard that either but agree with you that it was great news. Both Halt and Catch Fire and Manhattan have been exceedingly well done. I just hope that Manhattan gets renewed too.

I suspect that Eleanor will be finished off by the end of the season, too bad but there it is. I would love for the intriguing Franka Potente to stick around as Eleanor for another season, but I...

I have been wondering for sometime whether Gemma or the person Jax has become is the bigger monster. I still can't decide. When Gemma proclaimed, "I'm not a psychopath" and that all the monstrous...

I agree. "If that," indeed. I was so underwhelmed by the feedback the film received I had no problem skipping it in the theater. The only question that remains is whether, when the BD is released,...

I continue to really enjoy The Bridge this season. Between the deranged Eleanor and ruthless Fausto, it's impossible to predict where the next killing will come from.

I particularly enjoyed the...

^^^ The analogy you have drawn between Sean Bean in Legends and James Spader in The Blacklist is spot on, I think. Both shows are burdened by less that stellar supporting casts and stories that...

You are absolutely right. If you are pleased with your VHS copy of Casablanca that's your business. Anyway, I think we all agree that Casablanca is a wonderful film, no matter the medium used to...

There really is a lot to be said for short seasons. It seems to me that the longer the season, the more likely it its that the writers will pad their screenplays with extraneous claptrap, which is...

Tonight's episode is Number 5 out of 10. Under the circumstances, I will almost certainly finish the season. There's something to be said for any show that stars Sean Bean and the twists and turns of...

I have read a few but not many classic chick lit romance novels, for obvious reasons. Although Gabaldon's stuff is clearly a part of the chick lit genre because it is told solely from the...

Doctor Who has always had almost as many weaknesses as strengths. That's why I just shrug and go with the flow when an episode bores me. After all it comes with the territory. But when the show...

Good choice! Casablanca is one of my all time favorite BDs. It was brilliantly filmed and the digital transfer did it justice. Not to mention, that it's a great motion picture!

Outlander is a pure example of chick lit, just as Diana Gabaldon's book of the same name was chick lit. So what, though? I am not a big fan of the genre generally but the way Gabaldon and this...

Indeed! These days videotape, which has a resolution of only 480i, is as obsolete as the horse and buggy. The digital transfer of Casablanca to video is reference quality. The film fairly sparkles...

I share your bleak view of Graceland. It seems to revolve around undercover cops doing unspeakably ugly things. When I see the dirty cop Sid in action, I can't help but ask myself just how much...
