Crop And Save
Absolutely love Spooks.
From watching a few episodes from BBC online, I was totally hooked. I then bought 9 seasons of Spooks and watching one to two episodes a day. What I love about it, is that it doesn't try and glorify the roles of Mi5 agents, it feels so realistic, and well it touches on topics that you feel wow, what our governments are probably doing to protect our country and keep us safe that we will most likely never know about.
It brings up the political agenda as well and how that that conflict can arise with bringing to justice criminals as it affects a politician's own personal agenda.
Some of the scenes are scary and the suspense just keeps going, its not predictable but keeps you on the edge of you seat, and my mouth has been left hanging open for quite a few of the scenes. What you also get is you never know which main character will die or be asked to leave the service, so never ever think that even the main characters are safe.
So if you like things blowing up, spies, the James Bond, etc. You will love this.
I thought this movie was good, until I starting reading people's comments and found that it wasn't true what they said about the British and New Zealanders or the Canadians. Why make it that Americans to be the heroes when they actually did very little? I really hate when Americans come in and give the whole I or Americans are the only ones saving the day. and what was with the car chasing the plane at the end? Surely, they would've used their guns if that had been true and not just let the plane go. Out of curiosity, how fast does a 747 have to speed up to to take off? As those cars were beating the plane,without even trying.
So I did originally give it a good score, but the lies you gave, made it just another wrong portrayal of history so Americans will congratulate themselves for a job well done when you hear they actually did little.I didn't know about what happened but I was relying on the movie to give me an accurate, if not close to accurate portrayal of real actual events, not giving their own spin on it, to their own advantage. .The the true heroes were the Canadians. To know Argo won Best Picture now is insulting to the true heroes and Ben Affleck should give a public apology for the misleading film and advise that his movie is only partial fact, but mostly fictional. That just made me angry!! It reminds me of Independence Day. Another, I'm an American so I will save the world. Whatever.
Let there be a SEASON 4!!! PLEASE!!!!
I am absolutely gutted that Mistresses TV show is no longer airing. I am in Australia and they are airing season 2 now. Unfortunately, if we didn't pay for pay TV, we miss out on a lot of British TV, however with more free channels coming, they put "Mistresses" on and I absolutely love it after watching one episode. I loved it so much that I have purchased the entire series of 3 Seasons (which is only 16 episodes) by the way. What! How can BBC ditch the show?? Shame! Shame! So so sad. Please bring it back. :-( I finally find a good show to watch that is not another cops and robbers or some silly, comedy show where the story lines are all the same but just different actors. "Mistresses" rocks!!
Beauty & the Briefcase (2010)
This movie is pathetic!
This movie is sooo bad! Actually working in the office environment(an accountant), and being privy to many office meetings and know how directors think and how in general people act at work, this movie is so bad and I'm not sure I think I heard one financial word used in the movie "Hedging",where they said this is the hedging department. Wow! That is a big word for them. I wonder if they know what hedges are or is that beyond the brainscope? To have Tom, (Michael McMillan) say that he can save the coy by introducing a program for recycled paper! What the.......??? And the Directors love it!!!! Umm, huh? Gee, if I knew that, I would've suggested in my company. hahaha!! What a joke.
Why they had Lane (Hilary Duff) putting some sort of tangled bead curtain up around her desk and everyone still respects her and thinks she is smart and not a ditzy looney, I have serious doubts. I love to dress well, look smart but Hilary Duff's character is a shame to any person looking to enter the finance world. She is an embarrassment.
Another thing, I totally dislike about this movie is the fact that Lane wants to meet Mr Right but she is a shame to the female sex in the way that she treats men. She can't believe a man would try and be somebody else to impress a woman (so dumps Liam as he is a waiter and not a high professional star as he told her) and goes for businessman Tom (whom we can tell the relationship will last one month if that), however she has also been dating all the men in the office for a story, and date she does! She doesn't really give any of them the time of day or really show any interest in them. However, they all seem to line up to date her as she is beautiful. However, she is doing it for a story as she feels what it would be like to date an office guy as they would be committed. she is a hypocrite, user, deceitful, a fake. I'm sorry, don't expect us to respect Lane. She is a shame to all women.
The Last Song (2010)
I have always relied on IMD B before I go and see a movie. I mean who wants to waste their precious hard earned money as well as time to sit in front of a boring and poor movie. IMDb is where I have always turned, but you guys have let me down here. Having got through ¾ of Nicholas Sparks book "The Last Song" I couldn't wait to see the movie. It looked to be so good. However, from your recommendations and ratings from all the users, I was expecting a hopeless movie with only the title to recommend itself as being a Nicholas Sparks novel. The amazing author who brought us The Notebook and Dear John as well as many others. I was ready for a disappointment in Miley Cyrus acting. How wrong all of you were. Not being a massive Miley Cyrus fan of Hanna Montana, I was expecting the worst. However, the girl came through. What are all of you talking about? Are you expecting an actress with academy award written all over it, or what? I think that's what all us critics expect these days. We are the critics too. We complain about everything. Are you jealous or what? If the story is not for you, then I suggest you find out what it is about first of all, before you pay for the ticket. And those of you expecting to see a Hanna Montana type movie in the cinema, umm, should also find out about the story. I learnt from this movie too not to stereotype people. I think the story was great. Miley did well. I am just so disappointed in where they changed the story line. Don't like when they change the story. It is the directors and writers fault. When I go to watch a movie on a book. I don't expect for those in the movie world to put there own spin on it. What is so wrong with copying the book. Why change the story? It just makes people upset anyway and the original is usually better. Maybe it keeps the writers in a job, if they feel they can change something of the movie. No, don't do it I tell you! Think all of you how many good books have been ruined by some silly writer changing the story line for the movie. I admit that sometimes it is need to fit into a 2hr block, but please make minimal adjustments.
The Hills: The Company You Keep (2010)
Bring back Lauren!
I haven't seen Season 6 so this was the first episode I watched since Lauren left and it is so bad. Kristin is one mean girl. Her and Brody deserve each other. McKaela sounds so lovely and sweet and Brody is just a jerk!! Kristin didn't care at all that McKaela was having problems with Brody and was wanting to sort things out. She was all over him. Lauren would never have done that. I used to like Brody when I first saw him with Lauren when he first came on the scene but now, his true colours are coming out. He is not as sweet or charming as we once thought. He is a girl chaser opportunist. Obviously as Kristin and Lauren are regulars on the show, it would wise to stay close to them. Interesting, I wonder how often he sees Lauren now or is she just a distant memory because she is no longer connected to the show. I am struggling on who now to like on the show. Always liked Audrina so will stick with her. Never been a fan of Lo, and Speidi. At least with Spencer, he is outright and shows his true colors, but Brody is sly.
Center Stage: Turn It Up (2008)
Absolutely love it!!
I can't believe how underrated this film is and how critical some have been about this film. When I first watched it. I was hooked on every scene. I showed this movie to so many of my friends and family that love dance movies and just a feel good film, they all said how good this movie was. The dancing is spectacular by the main character Kate. She is absolutely gorgeous, sexy and really knows how to dance.
The acting ability was flawed in a couple of instances but we are talking about people who more than likely have dancing as their first love and profession and acting as an add on so please! ease up all you massively criticizing people out there. WE are only talking about a few instances here anyway not the whole film.
I like this film more than the first, I've gotta say. There will be people that will disagree but if you are looking for a light hearted feel good film to watch with plenty of dancing, give this one a go.
This season is going down hill!
I really enjoyed the other girl's comment and thought she was spot to the way I feel about this episode and really the whole 3rd season. I absolutely loved for the 1st and 2nd season and was desperately hanging out for season 3 to start. The whole season has not been crash hot and this episode another disappointment. I remember in season 2 where Chuck said to Nate that Blair was changing, and she truly was. She was my favorite character but now it seems her desperation to be accepted every story line is getting a little old and boring and she is not in school anymore. I don't know about you, but I don't know any queen bees at college and I doubt many would care if there were.
Jenny has changed so much from the sweet and innocent girl she started the show with. Her look and hair is cheap now. Bring back the other Jenny! She was a lot more likable and attractive. I now wish she would be axed from the show. Another character I have begun to dislike is VAnessa. Before I blame everything about this season and characters, whom I once used to adore, I blame it all down to the script writing. They must have different writers this year as Season 1 and 2 were awesome. This year, seems there is no character development. Nate definitely needs some good story lines, and the whole Tripp and Serena thing. Sorry, must of missed the chemistry there. It didn't take her long to get over Carter. That was a much better story line. Gee, if Carter comes back, she will have 3 men tailing after her! LOL! Now there is an interesting story line. IT is not the actors fault, as we are reminded they are just reading their lines, but after the last few episodes, I think we are learning that bringing star guests onto the show and going a little bit raunchy (which turned me off rather - a threesome??)is not a way to keep your audience captivated, that just shows looks of desperation.
I was very skeptical of The Vampire Diaries at first but the last two episodes are the beginning of an exciting series. As they are giving away "HEy you have discovered what we are" quite early in the series, it will be interesting to see how it pans out. I am so glad they ignored the whole "Superman" series how Lois Lane never finds out who Superman is and it will always was will they or won't they get together. Will she finally find out, yah di yah! That is fine for a while but how many series did they go with the same. I had to stop watching. How absolutely annoying! Didn't like the characters at first but they are now really interesting, and a story is starting to coming together.
The Vampire Diaries (2009)
not for me
I watched episode 1 and wasn't really a fan. It was like models galore in a high school. Where are the normal everyday school kids. Every Buffy fan would know that they had a few attractive people in it but not the whole high school. If you are a young teenager, you might like it. I found it very silly actually, not suspenseful, intriguing, haven't drawn to any of the characters, you know in Buffy how characters had there quirks, they were funny yet very likable, It is like 90210 and Melrose Place meet two gorgeous looking vampires. One good, one bad. Oh and yes, haven't found one of the actors with much acting talent either. Don't expect this show to last long. Great concept in wake of the Twilight series but poorly carried out.
