Another vampire story., 13 April 2014
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Just like vampire high etc replace the theme with witches. Good vs bad! The women battle each other and now neighbors. They created a monster. The battle between the witches in the different covens has begun. Lang play here usual power hunger self, like in the other series. Season 3 is less scary and more like the new vampire shows. I guess season three had to re-invent itself. I hope the series picks up. I give the Replacements a five out of ten. There is not much to season 3 so far. I hope the series picks up. The Replacements needs to be replaced with some better scares. Still some shock in season three. Let's hope there is a new character added. Maybe, a new story line as season drags on.

Rio 2 (2014)

Better than the original., 12 April 2014
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Rio 2 is the usual formulated animated movie. Bad people and bad animals causing problems for the Parrots. A message about different personalities, and problem solving. Also, the real message is the saving of the environment for the parrots. Rio 2's strong parts are the humorous bad parrot/parrot cohorts. Pleasing to the animation and 3 d effects. The funny comic relief animals which create a fun look at the South American journey. The soccer match, and American idol scenes create an entertaining side stories which mix well with the main story line of conservation. There was more humour and less story with Rio 2 which made for a funnier movie than the original. My wife did not like how they portrayed Nigel the cockatoo. His feathers were all ratty and he could not fly. There was also a macaw in the movie that had a feather disorder and a balance problem probably PDD a parrot disease, which they were making fun of which upset my wife. 7 squawks out of 10.

Spy games, 10 April 2014
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

More spy games. The pawns and movements are aligned. The trap, or honey pot, is set for Stan. Nina learns how to beat a polygraph test. Which side is Nina really on? Does she want to defect or is she doing all this for the cause? The Jennings have a tough mission to accomplish, and are dealing with a unbalanced associate. The acting, casting, directing, and several layers of sub-stories make Arpanet an interesting episode to watch. A must watch episode. Somewhere, somehow, something will give with the high level games played. Whatever goes off will be ugly and or violent! Stan is a ticking time bomb, and the Navy Seal is a wild card. I give Arpanet a six out of ten. There is quite the plot twist at the end.

solid show., 3 April 2014
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The Jennings' double lives take their toll. Elizabeth learns about Philip's sex life as a spy. F B I agent Stan's double life catches up when the K G B blackmail Stan using his girlfriend as leverage. Stan is being played from both sides. He thinks he is the one using the Russians but it is the Russians using him. A new Soviet spy learns how to kill and love without emotion. The Jennings black mail a gay Navy Seal to find out about operations in Nicaragua. The directing, acting, and sub- stories of Behind the Red Door create a sleazy, cold, and harsh portrayal of spy games. I Feel like I need a shower after watching Behind the Red Door. I give it a six out of ten.

The Art of War., 2 April 2014
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

300: Rise of an Empire was an intriguing movie: I watched the movie with interest. 300: Rise of an Empire is about Themistocles and his philosophy of democracy, free people have a reason to fight, the art of war. Themistocles uses political means of alliances,respect, love/deception, the ability of having his enemy fight on his terms, and uses his weakness as strengths. Sun Tzu would be proud of Themistocles' tactics against a much superior force. "Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt." Sun Tzu, The Art of War is Themistocles' template for the movie's main theme. The acting in front of a blue or green screen is okay but not an epic like Troy. The movie was acted and directed in a decent manner. I give 300: Rise of an Empire a six out of ten.

Divergent (2014)

Entertaining movie, 28 March 2014
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Divergent is an entertaining movie for the following reasons: Divergent is well directed and acted. The director and actors create a balanced mix of drama and mystery. The science fiction story about sectors in society and group order to create peace is watchable. Divergent's sets, back grounds and supporting actors create a good back ground environment. There is a teenage female lead telling the story. The Young female lead who is attracted to the kind but strong male. A potential romance? The film is geared for the Young Female Twilight or Hunger Games audiences. If you can stomach the genre Divergent is not a bad movie. Seven out of ten.

Season winds up!, 26 March 2014
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Birth is the episode which ties all the sub-stories together. Many of the ghosts want a baby. Plus one of the children will be evil. In the end, all the evil in the house comes out for the child birth. All the morbid characters come into play! The family is meeting an unavoidable tragic fate. The fear, tension, lies etc all come into play. Will the living figuring out in time for what lies wait. Well directed and act. There is a real energy with the Birth episode. A good segue episode for the season final. I wish the Realtor would get it. The Realtor must of known about the house? Why did she come back to the house? Disturbing episode!7 screams out of ten.

A strong start for season 2!, 25 March 2014
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A strong start for season two. Different story, and characters, but same actors. The story line is set inside an asylum, which is scary. Strong characters, a mean nun, famous killer, reporter etc who are interesting, hated, loved. The characters have a right mix for good mechanics for plot devices for season 2. Interesting watching actors for season 2 playing different roles, in a different time period. The story goes to present also! Many questions are asked in the Welcome to Briarcliff episode which keeps the viewer wanting to know more. Each character has their own personal story which keeps the story line interesting. I give Welcome to Briarcliff an eight out of ten.

Moiving forward finally., 24 March 2014
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Finally, after several redundant story lines the series moves forward. US episode has two story lines. Daryl and a group of marauders have some simple rules don't lie, claim what you want, and do not steal. Daryl and another member have a disagreement. The other story of the soldier and scientist have to rescue Glen and his crew from a tunnel before delivering the scientist to Washington. Both episodes have action, conflict, and mystery. The US episode is well directed and acted. There is a fast pace to the story which mixes action with scary special effects. The acting performance of J D Evermore aka Harley as the marauders leader is memorable. I believe the viewer will see much more of the Harley character. Eight out of ten stars.

The plot thickens., 22 March 2014
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A well written, directed and acted episode. Crowley is addicted to human blood, and the boys need the Blade of Cain for a mission. Crowley finds the blade and the Boys have an opportunity to payback Crowley. A fast paced episode with a good mix of humor and action. Humor is applied when the audience needs a release form the story's tension. Sheppard excellently portrays the evil, slick Crowley character, with the added intellectual humorist quids. Blade Runners is another cut and paste story but ends strongly with a few surprises. One sees the Blade's effects on Dean. A harbinger of future events. What are Crowley's plans with the Blade of Cain?
