Breaking Bad (2008)
Will be remembered as one of the best shows
This may be one of the best shows on TV I have seen. This show was excellent. The acting, the story, the characters, all masterfully done.
From the start we know this story is going to be a tragedy. An underachieving genius with a terminal illness decides to start down a dark path as means to better provide for his family. Or is that the excuse he tells himself? As Walt dives further into the darkness, the dangers grow, as does the evil within him until he simply embraces his alter ego. Dr. Jekyll unable to control Mr. Hyde (or simply not wanting to). He goes from being Walt, to embracing Heisenberg (You know my name).
The show also managed to do, what very few shows are able to, and that is ending when it was time. Far too many times a show doesn't know when to stop, and starts to get stale, or jumps the shark as they say. Not here. While the end is predictable, and Walt's fate known from very early in the show, it is still satisfying to watch unfold.
Erufen rîto (2004)
Tries way to hard to be dramatic and depressing.
I seriously don't know why this anime is rated so high. I have no problem with material that is meant to be dark and violent, the problem is that this show takes it way too far, to the point where it is no longer depressing, but ridiculous and hysterical at times.
There was a fight scene where a girl got both her arms and her legs ripped off, and I couldn't help but be reminded of the Black Knight in Monty Python.
The story is not deep, and basically just goes from one shocking scene to the next. I don't think the creators realized that when you do that too much, it is no longer shocking and it simply comes to be expected.
Every character also has some terrible tragedy in their past to go along with all the terrible things going on during the show.
In the end, this show failed at delivering a sad or dramatic experience, and just went way overboard into the territory of hilarity. It's not completely unwatchable and I could see the appeal of the show due to the animation and fight scenes.
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)
Very poorly made movie, yet at times humorous.
Make no mistake, this movie is painfully bad. It has a horrible camera, very bad acting, not so special effects, abysmal sound, etc. But if you're able to endure the movie, I'm willing to bet you'll have a few laughs at the movie's expense (like the clapping scene). I did, which is why I'm giving it three stars instead of one. I don't regret watching the movie, but I don't see myself wanting to watch it again.
The birds are the same two poorly animated models (an eagle and a sea gull), they flap around making the same annoying sound, the guns are obviously air soft guns, the birds only have about 2-3 dying animations. The dialogue is painfully bad. I question whether it was done and shot purposely like that in an attempt to be humorous.
There also may be an underlining message that global warming may be a serious concern to our planet, but the movie was too stupid for me to actually care.
