Garrow's Law (2009)
I totally agree with the previous review. A funny and interesting series, with very good acting and, as usual for Acorn productions, a very good portray of the period. The only pity is that it is quite short all in all. I could have watched much more. Can't wait to see season 2. I particularly enjoyed the historical side of it. I had little knowledge on how the anglo-saxon law system evolved. I found I learnt something knew while enjoying the show. I have only one small concern on the veracity of Garrow's opponents, they all seem to be quite inept at law. I wonder if it is accurate and reflects the fact that they've never been challenged before or if it is mostly in the interest of the show.
Defying Gravity (2009)
I really liked it, so sad it won't go on
I wasn't expecting much and I ended up really enjoying it. The cast is so good, the acting pleasant, special effects nice to watch. It doesn't pretend to be realistic, it gives you an alternate, interesting setting to play out human happenings.
As I said I especially liked the cast, I found the actors were fitting to their roles. The flashbacks were nicely balanced and managed to keep you interested.
It's the first "soap" taking place in space I've seen so far. Surely a tricky setting, apparently it failed them. I'm not sure whether it was the show or the marketing of it.
I'm disappointed it ended at season one. It deserved to go on. I wish they'll pick it up again.
Wonderful Surprise! Terrific movie
Somehow I was expecting a simple easy movie to rate between 4 and 7. I was totally wrong! This movie is an excellent blend of comedy and crime. It amused me, moved me and kept me on my toes. The Italian-American stereotype looks a bit dated but I may be wrong as I'm not updated on the real mob in the USA. The plot is unexpected (which is quite unusual) and realistic, beside the ridicoulous "supposed to be" Italian talks, I've never once thought "this is ridiculous it would never happen in real life". I love Mira Sorvino and she really kept up with my expectations. I have one remark though, why the vote shown is TWO points below the arithmetic mean? It doesn't make sense to me, especially since the median is 10! What else can I say? I love movies and this is one of the best comedy/crime movies I've seen recently.
