Movie & TV Watching Update
Haven’t really written here lately about TV shows or movies I am watching, so thought I would add a quick update.
During Work: Still going through Spin City. Since my x-5pm time schedule, I’ve been working a lot harder so haven’t really watched much of it. I’m about halfway through season 6, with 10 episodes left. After this I am not sure but will most likely start Just Shoot Me assuming I can get every episode of it. I’ve caught some episodes on syndication, and forgot how good that show actually was.
After Work: The SERIOUS time, where it is TIME FOR SERIOUS TV SHOWS. The Sopranos is almost done – I’m just turning on the Season 4 Finale while I eat my frosted flakes, so 2 seasons left. I gotta say that while I love the Sopranos – I have quite a few complaints too. Like the way something big will happen then it is not followed up on till 4 episodes later is ridiculous. Hell, sometimes they don’t even follow up on it at all.
Also things just happen out of nowhere – and not in the good way. A character will appear, be on the show for a bunch of episodes and them out of nowhere they just disappear. It’s the weirdest thing, and can be quite frustrating. It’s still a great show, but it’s not without its faults.
After The Sopranos – well we still have The Shield to go through – stuck on Season 4 there and have to start watching it soon. I’ll then hit up Dexter Season 3.
Movie wise I’ve been posting my reviews on NPP. I’ll just copy/paste those:
Lakeview Terrace – Really enjoyed the majority of this movie. Slow but well paced, and the build up was great….almost too great, as the third act ends up being a big disappointment. Also one of those movies that on the surface are pretty decent, but if you sit back and dissect you notice a lot of problems and holes in it. Still, Samuel L. was pretty fantastic in it. *** Movielens predicted ***, Criticker ***1/2.
Also how the hell do you get Patton Oswalt into a movie then have him utter like two fucking lines? I can’t even rate this flick it was so fucking bad.
Wanted: The first 20-30 minutes of this was pretty cool and got me pumped – the rest of the movie was a huge letdown. It was like they had all these cool ideas then blew them all in the first 1/3 of the movie – then had to come up with stuff for the next 2/3. Jolie was pretty good in it though,and I can watch the scene where she picks the hero up in the car with that sick sick move again and again. **
Hot Rod: Pretty damn funny movie, and the casting of Isla Fisher was as usual sheer genius. I love her so much. ***1/2
