Friday Night Lights (2004)
Insane, but accurate
Honestly, I loved the movie, but I have to say that Texas is insane. This is a state that consistently ranks near the bottom of the country in the quality of its education. No wonder! All the money and attention are focused on a GAME.
If you're a boy, you play football. If you're a girl, you cheer for it. If you're a dad, you wear your high school ring for decades and relive the glory days. If you're a mom, you hire someone to kill your daughter's competition. (Different movie, but equally true story.) How pathetically sad. I'm awfully glad the highlight of my life wasn't HIGH SCHOOL, and as an adult I can teach my kids that there's a heck of a lot more in the world besides sports.
These people really need to get lives beyond Friday night lights.
Doesn't live up to the hype
After the reviews, the publicity, and trailers, I expected a suspense flick. I wanted to be scared. I wanted to be shocked by the ending.
It was predictable. Not scary. Not even above average as predictable movies go. Slow paced and no real surprises.
Beauty and the Beast (1987)
It won my heart -- until the third season
"Beauty and the Beast" charmed me, wooed me, made me count the hours between shows so I could watch the fairy-tale romance between Catherine and Vincent develop. It's magic was the idea that their bond, their love could overcome anything.
Then came the third season where the producers decided that their love meant absolutely nothing, broke the special bond between Catherine and Vincent, and then killed Catherine. The message: Love conquers nothing. The third season negates everything the first two seasons stood for and betrays every loyal fan.
The first two seasons include some of the most powerful, romantic stories I've ever seen. But skip the third season. Just pretend it never happened.
