Fairly out Lesbian, in committed relationship
Fond of politics, good movies, hanging with fun friends, good tv. Love all things Aaron Sorkin does
Lots of twists
I can't summarize the whole episode, but have to say this. I saw this ep tonight for the first time and was blown away by Richard Belzer's performance. The story line had plenty of twists and kept me guessing until the end; that's not so unusual for SVU. But Belzer's portrayal of how Munch was affected was simply outstanding. It's one of the few times I can remember that he wasn't playing his usual (and funny) paranoid self. He actually let his vulnerability show and it was flat out amazing.
Potential spoiler alert!!
My only complaint is that I would have preferred he unburden himself at the end to his partner, not Olivia. Other than that, awesome episode and fantastic performance by Belzer.
Reno 911! (2003)
funniest original comedy central yet
I love, love, love this show....yeah, yeah, South Park is/was funny, but it got old.
This is hilarious on so many levels....it is an absolute joy to watch and at the same time, realize I am one of the people gently being poked fun at. [I also love COPS]
When I heard the show is mostly improv...my admiration went way up. I hope this lasts on Comedy Central for a good long while. Tresha
Changing Lanes (2002)
Use caution while driving
Mainly use caution cause this movie will put you to sleep faster than heavy sedation.
What a disappointment! I love Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck, and this seemed like an interesting premise.....but dear Lord, the actual script....mercy.
I actually, honestly fell asleep during what has to be one of the most insipid, drawn out, mind-numbing scenes in recent film history. And I am pretty sure this was supposed to be the "here's what we've learned" pay-off scene.
It's a shame really, these actors deserve far better than to have been saddled with this. Save yourself the time and energy, this one doesn't even make my "So Bad, They're Good" list.
Pay It Forward (2000)
Biased reviewer, love this film
I am totally biased, because this movie truly changed my life.
I went, almost solely because Kevin Spacey is an amazing actor and I would go watch him sit in a chair and talk for 2 hours. I also love Helen Hunt and Hayley Joel Osment, so I figured this was a sure bet.
Little did I know what a powerful impact it would have.
The basic premise is Spacey as a new teacher in Osment's class. Hunt is the alcoholic mom to Osment and thus he has great reason to want for more out of life. He is given that opportunity when Spacey challenges his social studies class to "change the world."
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER
Osment comes up with the idea of 'Paying it forward' ie, when someone does something helpful for you, instead of paying them *back*, you pass it on. You do a good thing for 3 people. It has to be something they cannot do for themselves and it has to (I think) cost you something. (Not financially, has to involve a sacrifice) The alcoholism runs deep in this family and the way Hunt decides to honor her son's idea is truly one of the most touching scenes I have ever seen in a movie or television.
I do have some gripe.It was hard to follow in some spots, because there is a little, 'flash forward, no wait, flashback 'essence, ala Pulp Fiction. And I think the ending could have been different. I don't believe it was an overdone, sentimental "chick flick" as the main reviewers seemed to when it was theatrically released. It was a very moving film that handled very draining problems with hope, honesty and at times, humor. Highly recommended
