I agree that it was great fun to watch Connor work over the much bigger twerp bully with a baseball bat. The big kid made the mistake of thinking that just because he got away with punching Connor...

I have long enjoyed your cousin Tom Sizemore's work. He is a terrific character actor. I am sorry he has had so many problems but he is nevertheless a talented fellow.

I really enjoyed Season 1 of Poldark. I thought the last episode was particularly well done, always exciting and sometimes overwhelmingly sad. Not many TV shows manage to move me but this week's...

I decided to setup a recording of Afflicted. I did so for a couple of reasons: (1) you recommended it and (2) it is only 85 minutes long. :) My guide shows that it will be shown on one of the...

I thought this was a great season finale. Unfortunately, it seems to have come too late to save the show. The always excellent Andy Greenwald expressed similar sentiments in a piece he posted to...

I agree that this week's show was the best of the season, by far. Despite how much of the season's complex conspiracy story the episode revealed, I thought it was remarkably clearly told. Kudos to...

Do yourself a favor and watch it! Deutschland 83 is The Americans with a sense of humor. Don't get me wrong, it's far from a comedy but the actions of the doofuses on both sides of the Berlin Wall...

I did notice the difference between the two films that you mentioned in your last post but I wasn't bothered by it. Given the way Lisbeth and Mikael's relationship had developed, I thought Fincher's...

Broadway does revivals of well regarded plays and musicals all the time. It's a practice I like. It gives me a chance to take a fresh look at a show I liked before but this time with a new cast and...

As of 4:15 PM CDT the Netflix search function still didn't turn Utopia up. Instead, it listed six titles under the heading, "Titles related to Utopia." Don't know why Netflix hasn't added it but...

Different strokes for different folks. I read all three books and watched the Swedish miniseries, which dramatized all three books but still loved Fincher's version of The Girl With the Dragon...

Not to put words in your mouth, but you seem to have an automatic hostility toward American remakes of foreign shows. Admittedly, there are more than enough such remakes out there to make viewers...

I agree with Ralph's analysis. Lucy is certainly not in a class with Luc Besson's masterpieces, La Femme Nikita and Leon the Professional, but it is still hugely entertaining. I neither bought nor...

I finished rewatching Daredevil earlier this week. Charlie Cox was great in the title role but I thought Vincent D'Onofrio stole the show as one of my all time favorite bad guys, Wilson Fisk. Fisk...

You make a great point. Origins was a tragic, humorless, downer but there is a lot to laugh at in Strike Back, which makes the sad stuff a lot easier to take.

I don't know, it seems to me that Fincher's remake of Utopia shows (showed?) a lot of promise. Fincher was slated to direct every episode and the show was to be written by Gillian Flynn, the author...

I thought this week's episode was the best of the season, its gut wrenching ending notwithstanding. In any event, it was well done. I suspect that Vera will come to regret his decision to leave...

Emily Blunt always has me at hello, so I'll probably see this one in the theater, depending on what the feedback is after it has been running for a little while.
