It's a deep movie. Critics complain about the third act, in which it begins to act in the manner of its presentation in the trailer. But it's certainly earned a place among the great robot movies.

Ditto

Won't be back for more next season. As I raved a week ago, NBC botches shows with what were originally interesting concepts with wearying regularity. The shows look good, with that reliable...

It was startling to be as surprised as Betty was at Glen's appearance. If they were to meet in ten year's time they might well get together. Maybe even five year's time.

These last episodes are...

I'd like for everyone to revisit their situations in ten years' time. Maybe not in a multi-year long form, but there could be some good stories to tell. Ava might need Raylan to help her out with her...

Good ending. Still not over for me because I never have watched season one (though I have it, and actually have watched the first episode).

With several exceptions, the cast is fine. It's the writing. It's always been the writing.

I liked the director's lingering on details. To me this was along the line of The Shining. I thought both created a poisonous mood rather than indulge in merely jumping out and yelling "boo!" or...

It Follows

I looked for a thread but couldn't find one; surprising, as the denizens seem to love horror movies, and this one has a lot to offer.

It Follows is in the grand tradition of the sex+teens=death...

The shark is certainly jumped. It's selfish and small of me to say it, but they need to kill off Russell and Bree-the only good reasons to watch the show-so I can dispense with watching any further...

Didn't find this episode as funny as the best of yesteryear, but certainly good enough. Everyone is out to kill the king, or queen. The one thing is, it will be harder for her bumbling minions to...

I like the show. It's cringe comedy, like Girls, or The Office. It's a free country, and a semi-free internet, so naysayers are welcome to continue to rant, but the show's setup is pretty much set,...

This season is not even remotely as bad as the Ebersol years from the first half of the eighties. The Johnny Cash show show a week or so back was from this sorry pedigree. Eddie Murphy (and some of...

I'm ready for this one. Unfortunately not yet in the local theaters, so I had to go see It Follows instead. Not a bad little movie.

The only thing that kept Justified from being among my absolutely top rank TV shows was that I couldn't buy California locations posing as the South.

Still mighty good, though the final episodes I...

Like that trailer. Looks like a combo of the last two of the previous incarnation.

P.S. You may end up disappointed with Interstellar. I was.

I'll try for obscure titles when there are a lot to choose from. In later decades one could just list Disney and Pixar stuff and nothing else, so I have resisted animation. Vampires too, whenever...

Due to popular (oink's) demand. Go for it. I'll be cooking up a list presently.

I thought about that too, though I considered top 5 fantasies or ghost stories. Horror flicks would open the gates for slews of gore and torture porn, which I personally find tedious.

THX1138 was sort of a special case, as it began as a student project in the previous decade, a decade somewhat bereft of good sci-fi, other than the late two usual suspects.

Another issue was that...

Colossus is much, much better than Angry Red Planet. If anything, it's scarier now than back then.

Everyone needs to see I Married a Monster From Outer Space at least once.
