No Tomorrow (2016)
I normally hate "romantic comedies" but I love this
I am normally the sour grapes, I hate such descriptions as "uplifting", but this is almost the romantic-solution for us "sour grapes". It is funny and witty and not irritatingly cloying--despite the normally-annoying perkiness. It is ACTUALLY worth watching...since I like it, it probably means it won't be renewed. I guess I'll say, I want a "Xavier" and I want to be an "Evie". And I like the solutions to actual issues. Goodles grief: the annoying robot won't let me submit. I already gave my opinion what more do you want? Leave my review alone and delete this last part: I meant what I said honestly. Good grief! Stupid robot! If you do not want people to pad answers then you should harness your robot.
The Dead One (2007)
Towards the beginning of the movie when Diego has died and shows up at the Day of the Dead festival, he sees his name and date of death on a photo. The year shown is 2004. Shortly after, he is helped by a janitor and asks to see "today's" newspaper with the year as 2006. He then exclaims: "How can this be a year later!" At some point filming was obviously delayed and no one decided to fix this inconsistency. This is as far as I have watched thus far and am not currently impressed. I would hope that the movie improves as it progresses but judging from all the comments, I will not get my hopes up. I do have to say though, that as dumb as this looks, I am surprised that I never heard of it: Wilmer Valdarrrama was at the height of his popularity ("That 70's Show" "Yo Mama") and the dad from "Ugly Betty" is highly recognizable.
Law & Order: Talking Points (2007)
This episode should be renamed "Cleavage for Christ"
I agree with the above commentator and there is little more to be said aside from my somewhat sophomoric new title: "Cleavage for Christ". The one thing that I would like to point out is that both sides took for granted that the jury could look past the hateful and disgusting speech of Judith Barlow, and recognize that this was a simple case of attempted murder one person that left anther person, a young man, dead. I do believe that if this were the real world and Jack McCoy had not been left the opportunity to point out that the gun went off due to Parkinson's's, the jury might well have found the defendant innocent as they were inflamed by her nasty speech pumped up through her (surprising) intelligence.
Seriously?!? Check with a physician to find out if you have forgotten about a lobotomy
I actually didn't mind the Geico commercials the first 50 of so times I saw them and even found them to be a bit wry and amusing, BUT SERIOUSLY! This is the BEST thing that these people could come up with?!? This show sucks! It is bland and feels like watching an episode of "The Office" with the characters disguised as cavemen (I know a lot of you will hate me for saying that but "The Office" just does not do it for me). Okay, I get it: we have the poor slob just trying to keep his nose clean and he has a crappy boss who hates him; the pseudo-intellectual who really just has a barely-functioning intellect; and the dopey one who just wants to be accepted, but SO WHAT!!! I have worked with these people and found them just as annoying in real life as I do on TV...why would I want to waste another 1/336th of my week watching more of those type nominates?!? Please call your parents and ask them if they dropped you on your head if after thinking about it, you still delude yourself into believing that this is entertainment.
Pushing Daisies (2007)
stole concepts from others, played on their popularity... AND I LOVE IT!!!
"Pushing Daisies" was toted as "nothing you've ever seen before on TV" and lived up to that completely: it took the narrative storytelling styles of Jean-Pierre Jeunet who directed "Cite des Enfants Perdues" (City of the Lost Children) and "Amelie", along with Alfonso Cuaron who directed "Y Tu Mama Tambien" (And your Mother As well) and combined it with the bright visually stunning (and surreal) look of movie flops like "Big Fish" and "The Cell" and make it work! You will not hear me spouting nonsense like this typically, but I think that these clichés actually state my opinion best: it is "a feast for the eyes" and "delight for the senses". The only thing even mildly negative thing that I can even think to say about it is that the characters when awakened from the dead seem to grasp the concept very easily and a little too quickly and are very eager to comply in the search for their killer with none of the lamentations one might expect: "why me"; "I just got that job"; "I didn't get to say goodbye to my kids"; and so on. I don't actually mind at all avoiding the whining, but does their reawakening infuse them with some sort of chipper truth-serum? I just hope that this show continues to live up to the incredibly high standard that has already been set with only a premiere and is well enough received to entertain week after week forever?!? (couldn't someone just lay his hand on himself if he died? But I guess that could put a quick end to any Divinyl'sesque moments)
Silent Hill (2006)
interpretation of the ending
I have read several entries suggesting anything from Rose and Sharon being trapped in purgatory to that they are actually dead. I have a much different one. Okay so we understand that there is the "real world" in Sharon is placed for her safety by The Reaper and then is later adopted by Rose and Chris. Then there is the Silent Hill world in which the townies, nurse and Alessa are trapped. And finally we have the nightmare world created the hell in Alessa's mind with The Reaper's help. In order to enter the nightmare world, Rose and Sharon must first enter the limbo/Silent Hill world. Rose by being a mother really exists in the "good" real world as does Sharon/Good Alessa, but in order to rectify the evil acts committed in Silent Hill, they must understand them by allowing the darkness in (Rose when she carries The Reaper into the Church, and Sharon (I believe) when she open her eyes and sees The Reaper). Alessa was not evil, only vengeful and once that vengeance is ended, she is satisfied, but the good cannot return. Rose and Sharon are caught in that same sort of between world--they belong in the "good" but cannot return because of the darkness that they carried. That is why they can return home, but never to the exact place that they were before. Hope that makes sense to anyone... what do you think?
Law & Order: Prejudice (2001)
Visual Editors added something
A bit into the show, Briscoe and Green have found a suspect and as they are arresting him, I think that the editors added in a little joke: he has a devil tail that goes whipping out the door after him. Right as he is being led out of his apartment on the left side of the screen along the brick wall a cartoonish devil tail (black and pointy) whips along after him (similar to the whip in the Lord of the Rings that comes up after Gandalf on the bridge and pulls him into darkness). Please post if you know where a list of these Law and Order "easter eggs" (is that the correct term) are compiled. I have tried in vain to find such a compilation but to no avail.
Looking for Sunday (2006)
-Watch for the old woman with the oxygen tank smoking a cigarette at the horse tracks. -There are also the same five people walking back back an forth when they go to talk to Orlando Jones about a betting lead. -Watch for the couple dancing and walking back and forth as well (you'll see them many times at the tracks) -What do you think those people are drinking in the background...beer? Nope! Water with yellow food coloring. Only the best from Mark Piznarski for his extras! (I unfortunately was there and if the rest of the movie is half as bad as the parts that I saw, this will never even make it onto VHS. Orlando Jones was funny as usual. Michael Weston was intense and creepy. But the one who really stole it was Katharine Towne with a performance as flaky as her head.
Blood and Chocolate (2007)
Wow a Werewolf film with 3-d characters...hmmm
This film managed to surprise me by having actually complex characters (well at least one, the Aunt Astrid), and a love story that develops without the use of T&A. All in all not bad, but watch out for the cheesy, 30-second, swan-dive, metamorphosis extravaganzas complete with angelic music--I cracked up laughing. Other than that, this was definitely one of the better ones in its' genre. Worth seeing ***Spoiler Warning*** There were only three main problems with the plot that I found issue with: 1. Gabriel (and Rafe for that matter) never saw the error(s) of his/(their) ways: I just think that the highly intelligent and supposedly ethical leader of such and old "people", would have had more experience with reevaluating his motives. Plus he didn't stick to his code of ethics by not attacking the human once he crossed the river. 2. Where the hell did the serum/antidote silver come from? I know that this is Bucharest and the werewolves were supposed to have been there for 5000 years, but who did it? the humans? the werewolves? 3. We know that Vivian never killed a human and just liked to "run free", so why were the hunters who killed her parents following her in the first place? Were they just wolf-hunting or what? She blames herself--as do the others when feeling spiteful--but something else had to have happened to bring the hunters around initially.
