House M.D. (2004)
The show ought to be fined/penalized....
I just cannot believe what the producers are doing with the show in order to bump up their ratings, and I'm even more shocked that the network allows this show to air.
Granted, there are plenty of other shows that are just as bad, if not worse, but for me, the whole "eyeball popping/testicles popping" was the last straw. That is just vile! I don't even watch the show, but I happened to catch a clip of the show. I don't care WHAT message the writers were trying to get across, that was just uncalled for. Period.
That is all :)
The Scarlet Letter (1995)
Why did critics so passionately dislike this film?!
Okay, maybe it's just my infatuation with Oldman's superior acting that had me distracted the whole time, but I really, truly enjoyed this movie! Now, I hadn't read the novel, so perhaps that changes things, but on rotten tomatoes, this film only received a 6% rating! SIX PERCENT! Wth?!?!?! Like I said, maybe I should have read the book to know why the critics seemed so appalled, but still...even if the movie took a few liberties, I thought it did well in conveying the overall bittersweetness of Hester's and Arthur's love affair. Besides, this wouldn't be the first book-based move that tweaked things, and I can think of some that did well despite drifting from the books they were based on!
If I had to say one negative thing about the whole film I would say I was distracted during Hester's and Arthur's love scene by Mituba's little escapade (I got the connection, but I didn't think it really added anything but confusion -to any first time viewer-to the primary love scene).
Oh yes, and I just was so happy when the doctor got what was coming to him. Well I liked the movie myself, and at the very least it turned me onto Gary Oldman (who I had only previously seen as villain after villain in other films). Those are my two cents!
