Mediocre Thriller That Is Not Keeping You Suspense
The film didn't last in the theater because it not interesting enough it mediocre, It should've been made-for-TV movie. Amanda Seyfried can't act and the characters (Wes Bentley, Jennifer Carpenter, and Sebastian Stan's roles) are undevelopment. Like what's the point of them. I thought Wes Bentley was the serial killer/kidnapper because his character was the only one that has sympathy for Seyfried's character but he was red herring and not develop very well. The situation is unrealistic they portrayed the police as useless because they skeptical of her story of being kidnap by the killer. She's the only one of his victim to escape and now her sister's kidnap and will be murder within hour. They think she's crazy and of course later on the film (it fall under "Oh she not all that crazy she was telling the truth all that time".) Like No Way!!! In the entire movie she did her own investigation and carried a gun. Everyone is suspect and run from the police like a fugitive. The point is the film could've been better.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
It Should Be Called The Avengers: Civil War, Not Captain America
This was the year (2016) of superheroes fighting themselves. The first half of the movie was slow it start to pick up around the middle of the story. The story lines remind me of DC Animated Movies and Justice League Unlimited first season. Three Marvel characters that do not appear in this one were Thor, Hulk, and Nick Fury which that surprising. They treating Tony Stark like he's the bad guy in this but he doing his job and all Cap (meaning Captain America) is doing's protect his friend Bucky now Winter Soldier. Who really steals the show is Tom Holland's Spider-Man (first actual teenager playing him) in his appearance he just as fun as Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man. The film is okay, but I like said the begin was mediocre but still entertain.
Gossip Girl (2007)
Read the Book Instead
Hated! It's nothing like the books (I've read), the TV series has no plot and everyone can't act; Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were not right for the roles, all the girls in the show are unattractive and the boys are ten times better looking than the girls. Dan and Rufus (Serena's brother, he was older than Serena in the books but there made him younger in the show) they are only two who have sense; Jenny is stupid; Taylor Momsen does nothing too (can't act too).
So Stupid It's Good
It really two episodes they edited into a full movie. Full of campy stuff like Adam West's Batman show but you ending ask why the series didn't last longer (only one season). There is bad acting from Mark Hamill but he still did good in this, when he played The Trickster you can see how he got the voice of The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and another omen of the sidekick, Prank/Zoey could be inspired of Harley Quinn (even through the creators based Harley on the voice actress herself Arleen Sorkin when she was General Hospital). John Wesley Shipp would later played Barry Allen's father & Earth-2 The Flash, Amanda Pays returns the role of Christina McGee, and Mark Hamill reprise the role of The Trickster in that soap opera CW The Flash (which stay longer than the original show). To tell you the truth I enjoy it, it's so bad it's good.
The Flash (2014)
More like the Barry Allen soap opera show than a comic book show
The series is badly-written and everyone can't act (except Jesse L. Martin & Tom Cavanagh). They don't show the villains that much they're more focus on Barry Allen and his friends personal lives makes for too much soap opera in this series. There only a couple episodes that were okay/good. Barry is more like Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man. Barry personality was better when he first appear in Arrow, he was more likable. Barry and Iris remind me of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson like relationship. Iris and Wally are annoying at times. I prefer Wally West/The Flash II in Justice League animated series better. Wentworth Miller and his partner-in-crime and Mark Hamill are the only ones that make this show work when they guest stars. This series is meant for teens & my age group, prefer to watch Arrow instead.
Tales from the Cryptkeeper (1993)
G-Rated Version of Tales from the Crypt
I remember watching a few episodes when it was seen in CBS in morning and afternoons when I was kid. The series still has the same theme as the live action HBO series but G-Rated version and more like Beetlejuice and the monsters look-like the ghosts from The Real Ghostbusters. It fun and worth watching and show two hosts from The Vault of Horror and Haunt of Fear, The Vaultkeeper and The Old Witch who made their appearances in Season Two (equal more laughs). I wish those two could appear in the live action Tales from the Crypt and also the animated series should've stay longer and more people should look at. The animated Cryptkeeper is just crazier than Beetlejuice and still keep everyone entertain. I recommend you to watch HBO Tales from the Crypt and Are You Afraid of the Dark?.
Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)
Batgirl: The Killing Joke
The first fifteen minute of the movie focus on Batgirl story, her story is stupid. It play as one of Batman: The Animated Series episode. They could've add anything but Batgirl story has nothing to do with the story. Barbara act like a teenage girl. Batman and Batgirl were partners not lovers plus he's older than her. So what happen to her attract to Dick Grayson. I prefer '89 Joker background as already a criminal, not failed comedian that was kind of boring. The movie had sex (Barbara had sex with Batman, that a don't) and rape (The Joker rape Barbara while she lying bleeding). They portrayed The Joker as sexual predator. I thought it would be like Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker.Because I remember first reading the book I see similar what the Joker did to Tim Drake that show how The Joker went to far and Batman beat the crap out of him (I wish this film adaptation should show it). This movie is suppose to be about Batman and The Joker not Batgirl. The good parts they brought back Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill as the voice of Batman and The Joker, when I first read the novella I always heard these actors voices at my head. It faithfully to the graphic novel even. Watch Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker and Under the Red Hood.
Funny Girl (1968)
Inside Fanny Brice
Everyone know comedienne/singer Fanny Brice as Baby Snooks in both stage and radio. This musical is based on hit Broadway musical and Brice's life. The story focus on Brice's (Barbra Streisand's film debut) early career her rise to stardom in Ziegfeld Follies in the 1900s & 1920s. Her love & marriage to then-husband (second husband) the attractive gambler/con-artist smooth operator Nicky Arnstein.
It not a good story and it overrated, but still some entertaining. The good parts of the story is that despise she's not pretty, Fanny proves to everyone that she has talented: humor & singing ability. She is a strong woman at her time. There are funny moments in first act especially Fanny Brice as teenage and during the "You Are Woman I Am Man" scene. There only five good songs in the film. "People" (that a really a standout that show's how Barbra Streisand is a good singer), "Don't Rain on My Parade" (remember heard that song on Mrs. Doubtfire when I was a kid), "You Are Woman I Am Man", "Sadie, Sadie", and Brice original song, "My Man". There is good chemistry between Streisand and Omar Sharif (in real-life they had affair while filming) (Streisand was still married to Elliott Gould). You would not like the second act of the story after Fanny and Nick got married and have a baby. They start have marriage problems; 1.) Nick's start losing at gambling and now their have financial problems 2.) After Fanny get back to work, Nicky start to get jealous/resent Fanny (A Star Is Born treatment) He becomes weak and self-destructive. Even thought it about the early career of Fanny Brice, it actually a musical comedy love story about her and Nick. I believe the Broadway version is probably better than the film because they said studio cut all Fanny's mother and her friends (Eddie and Georgia) numbers. More supporting scenes for Streisand and turn it into one-woman show (shame on you Columbia Studio!). You can see why Barbra Streisand won a Oscar, but Kate Hepburn's still My Best Actress Winner for The Lion in Winter. Both actress won in Oscar history it was tie. Don't watch the sequel Funny Lady because it not as fun as the original. It has some good moments and better songs but you would not like Fanny new personality because she got harder (remember somebody broke her heart).
Doctor Zhivago (1965)
Doctor Zhivago is about a Russian doctor-poet who marry his childhood sweetheart/adoptive sister but falls in love and pursing a lovely woman during World War I and the Russia Revolution.
The film is too long and boring. There is no romance/chemistry between Omar Sharif and Julie Christie at all. There's no acting (soap opera-like acting instead). I never understood what Zhivago fall or see in Lara. Well I am not a fan of infidelity he cheating on his wife while she having their second child. They never explains what happen to Lara's family and Tonya, her father and their son. The movie tried to be the next Gone with the Wind but fails. Nothing can top that. The critics didn't like it (can you blame them), but the fans and Academy did like it. It not a good story at the begin. I didn't find the late Omar Sharif all that attractive in this he looks better in Funny Girl, that three years later. Julie Christie look really pretty in this movie. The movie had pretty cinematography and costume design. Watch careful and you see Omar Sharif only son as young Zhivago as a child at the begin of the film. Watch Lawrence of Arabia instead.
Once Upon a Time...There Were Wonderful Cast
Even though I don't care for Cinderella story, this was a good live-action adaptation of the 1950 classic animated film; They add some of the original tale into the film and it beautiful. The entire ensemble cast did good job (except Lily James) especially Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother who channeling Joan Crawford and also the entire cast is British (except for Cate and Stallan Skarsgard). Richard Madden (aka Robb in Game of Thrones) is cute as Prince Charming he also did a good job with his relationship with his father the king(Derek Jacobi), the captain, and Cinderella and his character development. They had beautiful costume design especially Lily James costume it really Oscar-worthy. Kenneth Branagh did good job of direct the new version of Cinderella. Lily James is miscast as Cinderella, she was not pretty enough and can't act (remember she just came out in British soap opera Downton Abbey) Her crying and surprise is not convince. Drew Barrymore is still the best looking Cinderella. The role of Cinderella is difficult, it true they should've have cast AnnaSophia Robb, Elle Fanning, or Taylor Swift (but she can't act) as Cinderella. I watch three times already that sound like I like this version.
