So much fun
I don't write reviews very well, but after seeing a scathing 1-star review on the main page, I had to try.
I enjoyed this show so much. It reminded me a bit of the Australian series "Please Like Me," even though they don't have much in common. At six episodes, it's an easy binge watch and well worth it. It's pretty original. All of the characters are likable, even the womanizing jerk or a roommate. The actors play their parts well. Despite what another review says, the acting is actually as good as any other quality series.
I don't think it ever saw a second season, but hopefully it'll do well enough on Netflix that they'll revive it for a few more seasons!
AIR: The Musical (2010)
A Major Disappointment
I watched this movie because it had 10 5-star ratings on Amazon.com with no lower ratings attached. Boy, was I let down.
The script had potential, but was poorly executed. It's three stories in one movie, and it isn't until the last scene that two of the stories kind of come together (although there's doubt about that). Each story on its own would have been interesting had it been more fleshed out. Only one of the stories had any reason to have any sort of musical theme tied to it, and it was that story that made the best (although, still sub-par) use of the music.
The acting left so much to be desired. For a short while, I wondered if the director had used non-actors as the stars of the movie for a reason. It wasn't until halfway through the movie that I realized these were just bad actors, not non-actors. If not for a screen writing credit, I'd assume that this movie was entirely improvised by a troupe of actors in a beginners acting class.
The music was OK. I doubt it would ever win any awards or sell any soundtracks. It was music that an amateur writer would throw together, and I have to wonder if this movie wasn't made just for the purpose of showcasing the film makers attempt at writing music.
The singing was just plain bad. There were a couple of scenes where the singing was OK, but for the most part, not one actor could carry a tune. One actor in particular couldn't hold a note in just one song.
There was only one scene in the entire movie that was remotely worth watching again. It was a dance scene with no singing, involving "tap" and spilled paint (an homage to Singing in the Rain?). This is the ONLY reason I was generous enough to give this 2-stars instead of one.
Again, all of the 5-star reviews that have been given simply had to have been written by people involved with the movie. Don't waste your money on this one. If you get a chance to pick it up for free at the local library or get it from Redbox for $1, give it a try, then PLEASE come back here and rate it so that others aren't fooled into buying it due to reviews or ratings planted by the film maker.
The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
Improving on the Original
The Matrix Reloaded is well worth the price of admission. Where as The Matrix was a good movie, this sequel took the best of that movie and built upon it, making an even better movie. Some people complain that it was difficult to follow the dialogue in certain areas, but the fight scenes more than compensate for that. One fight scene, with "the Smiths" was worth the price alone, and made me smile the whole way through.
Any action fan will love this movie, which has several "YEAH!" moments.
I'm glad we only have to wait until November for the next movie, rather than another four years.
This trilogy has easily become this generations "Star Wars" where the second Star Wars trilogy has failed.
