Let's pray for just one more season!, 13 May 2016

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Where to begin after over two years of crap from this once brilliant show, but truth be told it's more than two years since this show has been good. Penny knew and have meet Leonard's dad Alfred, I guess that's what we call was implied for the story. Howard and Raj with Bernadette storyline was beyond awful, talk about a crappy filler. Sheldon and Leonard's mothers still don't like each other yada yada yada.

I still can't believe that the main three gets paid one million bucks per episode, and I'm talking about Jim, Kaley and Johnny of course. With this season and the last one they been paid 48 millions bucks each, and with the tenth season another 24 million. I don't know about you but that makes me sick to my stomach, it would be one thing if the show and the seasons have been good, but it hasn't by a long shot.

An insult to comedy!, 15 January 2016

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The montage of Sheldon insulting every one was the only highlight, the rest was C.R.A.P - I didn't laugh or smile after that scene.

After this episode my thoughts was solely on that Jim, Kaley and Johnny got paid 1 million dollars for this shitty episode. It's an insult to shows like Fargo, Game of thrones, Mr Robot, Daredevil etc. But what I don't comprehend is that this show still got 15 million US viewers, but I guess a majority still watch this show by habit at this point. Me personally only watching this by habit at this point, it stopped being golden with the 5th season.

I really hope that the tenth season will be the last one, because it's not entertaining or funny anymore.

Comedy my a**!, 27 November 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This was a pretty damn terrible episode. There was a time when even a comparatively bad episode of this show might still be the best thing on in that time-slot. But now, with an episode like this, there are infomercials I'd rather have watched. Once again, we dip into the mire of relationship drama and once again it's not remotely funny or even entertaining as a drama. The whole soup kitchen bit was absolutely pitiful. The writers are loosing there mind and I'm afraid a lot of fans to if the keep this up. It's a bad thing if there is only one funny scene (Leonard dancing) in the entire episode! This is not a drama people, so don't turn it into one. I have no idea were this is heading, but it's time to wake up and smell the Comedy.

Why I love to see a movie, 29 August 2014

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This film reminds me why I love watching movies, it's that simple. Maybe I'm slightly biased because of a really good friend of mine died recently the age of mere 24 in cancer, but he was brave, admirable and loving until the very end, just like Gus.

Just like in this movie and the lost of my friend I have learned that never take life and love for granted. So please watch this movie because you will love it in a bittersweet way, but I promise that it will leave you with a smile on your face when the credits will start to roll. All in all this movie will have you in a turmoil of feelings, but trust me that it's accurate portrayed and it leaves you thinking and then some.

Whatever you do, never begin watch this crap!, 19 July 2013

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

If you love to see women/girls being portrayed as dumb, materialistic, pathetic and being degrading -- well this is the show for you.

If you love to see a show that leaves plot holes the size of North America behind -- well this is the show for you, because this show makes stupid people look good.

This show made me for first time in my life, and I mean my life, I have seen numerous teen dramas even bad soap operas, but I have never been ashamed to watch a show.

Here is one example for the core relationship (there are more, but this debacle stands out as the worst) The way they kept romanticizing Blair and Chuck is just beyond disgusting to me, I just pray and hope that the young viewers are able to decipher that from the context of the propaganda that the show puts out about that particular relationship. I don't care if they're passionate, sexy, and "Epic"...if a guy talks to you like that, he doesn't respect you. If a guy loves you like Chuck says he loves you, she would better run to the other side of earth before even thinking of talking to you in the manner that Chuck speaks to Blair. I don't care how they paint it, that relationship is abusive, maybe not in the physical but in the emotional aspect for sure.

Why this show reached 121 episodes is beyond me or that I stupidly watched it, but I blame my notion that once started I will see it through -- 121 times 41 minutes is 4961 minutes or almost 83 hours is a time you will never get back if you decide to watch this crap, please remember that. This is not a guilty pleasure show to watch, because you would only feel guilty after watching it.

I was more than willing to give this show a 5 on the rating scale - But after watching the very last season with Stephanie Savage in charge and how they wrapped up it all, it became clear that this show became the lowest on the rating. Also note that if I was filthy rich and was living in the US I would probably sued the makers of Gossip Girl for stupidity and negligence.

See this film, 4 June 2013

The very idea of producing a dramatic film about such beloved, tragic, and incomparably gifted people as Tim and Jeff Buckley might seem like a dubious venture, a bite that would be too big for any director and cast to chew. And yet Greetings From Tim Buckley is a beautiful, touching, electrically charged success, capturing the essence of these two adored musicians with a synergistic magic that, unbelievably, does them both justice.

The film uses a true story from the life of singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley (Penn Badgley) -- his preparation and performance at a tribute concert for his father, the late Tim Buckley (Ben Rosenfeld), in 1991. Over the span of a few days, Jeff is forced to contemplate the similarities between himself and the father he never really knew -- their uncanny, iconic visages, their hauntingly similar tenor voices, their shared musical genius, and their mutual ability to remain in the moment of artistic creation and expression 24 hours a day, not just while standing in front of a microphone or expertly manipulating a guitar. Meanwhile, Tim is seen two decades earlier on a journey that mirrors Jeff's, as he spends time on the road and learns via a late-night phone call that his semi estranged wife has given birth to his only son.

One of the many things that makes this movie so incredible is that Jeff doesn't confront his long-festering emotional confusion through heavy-handed speeches or overwrought melodrama; much of the largely internalized story is simply presented through music. Tim Buckley's original, earth-shockingly emotive songs provide more than enough narrative momentum for many affecting scenes with either father or son to play out almost without dialog. And in another smart move, any necessary exposition regarding Jeff's personal arc is handled through Before Sunrise-esque exchanges he has with a young woman he befriends while preparing for the concert, conversations that are always strikingly on point, but never too on the nose.

It also cannot be overstated how magically and completely Penn Badgley inhabits Jeff Buckley as a man and a musician. The mere fact that Badgley performed all of his vocals for the part live is reason enough to see the film, as Jeff Buckley had a rare, otherworldly voice and dexterous musical ability, both vocally and on the guitar -- and Badgley nails it with absolute perfection. He does this not only when he sings prearranged songs, but when he riffs and improvises during jam sessions, always with every ounce of Buckley's range, not to mention his strange and clever rhythmic and tonal choices. But even greater still, perhaps, is Badgley's overall characterization, which channels Buckley's unique personal mannerisms with such organic precision that we can sense the very physical and psychological undercurrents that they derive from. Often, Badgley conjures the singer's combination of energetic mania and laid-back California fluidity with what looks like total ease.

The narrative in Greetings From Tim Buckley only takes place during those few days leading up to the concert, so it's up to the audience to know what lies ahead for Jeff: the groundbreaking solo album, the untold critical acclaim, and the deeply tragic untimely death that befell him, drowning in a river he impulsively dove into just on the heels of his plans for a sophomore album. But the odd mixture of doom and grace that would follow Jeff in life is still present in the movie, lending a further sense of beauty and loss to what would already be one of the most moving musical stories told on film.
