FDR: American Badass! (2012)
Completely ridiculous but great fun
From the outset this film looks cheap and you might consider not bothering to watch it based on that but if you stick with it the great cast suck you into it's unbelievably ridiculous world. Barry Bostwick's performance Carry's the film. There's a lot of modern street talk that he manages to pull off, even though some of it is borderline to silly but at the same time he turns in some great speeches that would be worthy of a far more serious film.
There's not much point in explaining the film, it's far to daft to attempt an explanation but it works, that's mostly down to the cast, the production, direction is excellent too, given the low budget nature of the film they made the most of what they had.
Last of the Living (2009)
This film is all over the place, one minute you have classic shambling zombies then later in the film they can run. If you get bitten by the zombie you get turned into one (sometimes instantly when the mood hits the writers even though at another stage in the film they say it takes more than an hour to turn) but if the zombies blood gets sprayed into your mouth it's fine. At one stage one of the characters is able to knock out a zombie with a punch in other scenes 3 of them can't knock one zombie with bats (although I think they where just copying Shaun of the dead in that scene).
I suppose the films supposed to be a comedy but it fails at that too, overall nothing works here it's a bad comedy, it's a bad horror and it's about as suspenseful as watching a dog lick it's own balls.
Breaking Bad (2008)
Best thing on TV
This show is absolutely outstanding! It's quickly become one of my all time favorites, I only remember Bryan Cranston from Malcolm in the middle and am fairly shocked by how different he is. He goes from being a completely convincing suburbanite teacher to a completely believable villain without betraying the character. At times he looks completely menacing which is probably what makes the show work because his character really isn't that way.
It's actually a rush at times watching the show because he's so good at sucking you into the world. There's no point in reading reviews for this show, just start watching it, you won't be able to stop.
Fair City (1989)
So bad it's painful
I don't know how they manage to make it so bad. Every scene in the show goes exactly the same way. Actor walks in, regurgitates lines, reply from other actor, actor walks out. The actors aren't particularly bad, I've seen them in other stuff and they can act (sort of).
I can't say I could focus on the show long enough to pick up any plots, but what I've seen has been boring and painful. I do know one guy is dying of cancer at the moment, which you can only feel good about because all the actors play the worst of Dublin snobs that you just want to see die in the most horrible ways.
It's like going to visit your granny as a child and sitting in the middle of a group of old women talking about knitting, bunions or putting tea bags on their eyes. You just want to chew the table and pull your eyes out of your head.
On the plus side there may be adds on the other channels that provide better entertainment value than this half arsed tripe.
