Rick and Morty (2013– )
4/10
Very poor copy of Futurama
23 September 2019
Just two main characters can't carry the weight of a comedy like this. And it shows! The animation style isn't good.

Didn't prove a single thing in 11 years
12 June 2019
This movie has a 11 year long history of full on failure.

So They Have All This Evidence
12 June 2019
... like the supposed nanothermite in the dust that looks and behaves exactly like paint chips with rusty steel on it and yet nothing happens, no chemist in China or Iran mentions it, even though they are far beyond the immediate reach of CIA/FBI. The same goes for the structural engineering arguments.

Again. Nothing happens. Nothing.

Oh, does it? All they can do is to ask for more donations to prolong the money laundering scheme of mr. Gage

Don't listen to the naysayers. I would be the first to hate in it.
22 April 2019
However, this episode is a huge improvement. The best in a long time, far better than season 7 and somewhat better than most of the S5/6 episodes.

a lot of humor - I laughed for minutes.. Tormund is the best, a lot of pain... seing Theon made me cry... a little...

Arya... a shock, however.... not a bad one

House (2004–2012)
7/10
1st season very good, seasons 2 and 3 got old quickly - avoid the rest
17 January 2019
The first seasons isn't realistic (or anything after that point) but it is entertaining. Seasons 2 and 3 don't expand on it too much but they are still somewhat above average. The rest is clearly below average.

Watch the 1st ( 9 out of 10) and stop.

Iceman (2017)
7/10
Too long
13 January 2019
Would have been a 9 if it was only 40 minutes long and it needs more of a human inter-connection .

Very good but avoid most of the series
9 January 2019
This is about as good as you can get/expect from a low-budget TV movie. Pretty thick atmoshpere. And very few TV movies came close to its quality in the last 15 years. The following series changes some basic things early into the series but it still maintains high quality deep into the 1st season. Season 2 will irritate you early on because the expected reveals don't happen though some of the quality is still there. 2nd half of season 2 is very bad and the subsequent parts are even worse.

The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 (2007)
Season 1, Episode 2
2/10
Don't watch - utter drivel from both: conspiracy theorists and BBC
2 January 2019
There's not a single sensible thing about this No, 9/11 hasn't been explained. The official reports are a joke. However, most of the CT claims are so stupid that a 7yo could debunk them - yet BBC fails to do so!.

Utter drivel from both, the conspiracy theorists and BBC/official story
2 January 2019
This show if full of nonsense from both sides, BBC failed to produce a documentary here. It feels like a disjointed clip show that follows no logical narrative. For example, why is there a whole section dedicated to the smoke on the south side of WTC 7? Why don't they show the layout of the site? There are plenty of photos of WTC 5/6 burning just 20 m from it - with heavy smoke. And no, the smoke can't be from WTC 7 because the fire would travel (over 7!!! hours and we'd see broken windows on the sides! Worst of all, the amount of smoke is completely irrelevant to the discussion.

And of course, there is no relevant discussion about the state of the fireproofing in WTC 7 nor its adherence to building codes. Instead, we get out "CD" guy who sides be the official story that a single seat failure collapsed the building - yet in the same breath - says that it would take a year to wire the building for demolition! You can't have it like that, either it was sooo sturdy or it was sooo badly built. What's worse, the internal ramp directly connected to mechanical floors 5 and 6 where the transfer truss were located, so wiring it would not be a problem, a week with 5 persons should suffice.

Of course, later insurance littigations clearly showed that the fireproofing was badly applied and that the building was poorly constructed.

Gladiator (2000)
10/10
A well deserved 10, not dated
1 January 2019
This one should be in the TOP 15, much better than all the starved post-2008 trash (yeah - it's getting better now but the next crisis is right behind the corner so don't get your hopes up...) and nonsense like The Shawshank Rdemption (though this one is a IMDB glitch).

Pulp Fiction (1994)
6/10
This moved DIDN'T age well
1 January 2019
It is understandable how it got its cult status. The problem is that modern media has grown far beyond that. PF feels like a collection of funny YouTube videos - and that's why it was so good in 1994 (nothing like that available) and not so good today (YT clip culture produced far better)

Good but extremely overrated
1 January 2019
It's pretty obvious that this movie got to the top thanks to its publishing date (1994). IMDb became a viable site in 1994 and this was one of the best movies of that year. From there on - inertia. Why 6 out of 10? Cliché, Waaay tooo much. That's why IMDb should be ashamed of its algorith. Strike it down..

Titanic (1997)
10/10
This movie has aged well
18 September 2018
Ignore the haters: they need to criticize the genre, not the movie. This movie is about 85 % (historically) accurate, about as much as you can want from a Hollywood blockbuster.

10/10

Esmeralda (1997– )
10/10
Not bad, not good
14 August 2018
About average (within given genre). It (certainly) beats nonsense like Westworld (1/10), BrBa (1/10) or Battlestar Galactica {seasons 2 - 4} (1/10).

I say 5/10.

Stargate: Continuum (2008 Video)
9/10
Very good
10 August 2018
We've got multiple deaths of Ba'al, plenty of Goa'uld arrogance, plenty of fun and a little bit of drama. This movie is a near coppy of the ending of SG-1 (season 8, Moebius), thus the movie is somewhat unnecessary (we've already seen a comparable plot) but still quite funny and entertaining. The production values are OK.

Horrible, watch the much better (8/10) "Continuum" instead
10 August 2018
I don't know what to say about this. Every single plot line is terrible, the production is laughable, the directing is bad and 1/2 of the actors suck. Jack and Hammond are missing. Oh, the prison scene with Priors is good and maybe... the opening 3 minutes... these are watch-able. Avoid the rest.

Only for die hard fans.

Stargate: Atlantis: Vegas (2008)
Season 5, Episode 19
10/10
Sadly, one of only two good episodes in the last 2 seasons of SGA
8 August 2018
Each and every episode since S04E01 has been either garbage or slightly below average... but mostly garbage. The Ghost in the Machine and Vegas are 5/5 shows with nice production values and sensible script. The inevitability of Sheppards fate/demise is awesome.

The Expanse: Abaddon's Gate (2018)
Season 3, Episode 13
10/10
Damn... 10/10
19 July 2018
Warning: Spoilers
Yep, there is only a single thing to critique in the final 90 minutes - the sound of laser firing.... the rest is just awesome. Note: the powering down thing may be connected to Miller's inability to override all safety protocols, so he needed the power-down for the final override. This is about the best you can expect from a medium-budget TV.

The Expanse: Home (2017)
Season 2, Episode 5
1/10
More like 8.5/10, rated 1 to lower the score, needs some serious polishing to be 10
3 July 2018
Some of the character's reactions are slow like if they were on some kind of opiate or weed, that was killing me. Earth having only 600 missiles in its defensive system doesn't work at all, these are small missiles and they've been preparing for Mars/Earth conflict for 10 decades... with industry so powerful that 15 billion people don't have to work at all.... and Epstein drives being so cheap that belters can afford them (while not having money to buy clothes!!!). Rly, it should be 70 000 ...... closer to the books.. at 5 % c... and then it would be feasible to turn that "roc" into plasma.

The Big Bang Theory (2007–2019)
3/10
First few episodes good, then boring and.... theen extremely bad
27 June 2018
The first few episodes were good, then it became boring. And now, it's 7 or more series past its sell date. Sheldon is an obvious attempt at mocking homosexuality, not autism. Mocking homosexuality wouldn't fly, so they do it this way. And if the did try to mock autism - they failed. The true humor is elsewhere and looks nothing like it.

The Expanse: Triple Point (2018)
Season 3, Episode 5
10/10
The best one so far, beats most TOP Sci-Fi episodes filmed in the last 20 years
27 June 2018
Nice twists, rapid plot development, action, CGI... the only thing missing is more distance and more missiles (in some scenes, I'm avoiding spoilers).

10/10
Very good, underrated
27 June 2018
Ayana is mysterous and beautiful, the setting is quite exotic and the story is OK. One of the TOP 10 episodes of SG-1.

Stargate SG-1: Space Race (2003)
Season 7, Episode 8
1/10
One of the worst episodes (excluding seasons 1, 9 and 10)
27 June 2018
Yes, there is not a single redeemable thing about this episode. Rubber-head aliens only add insult to (our) injury. Nothing of importance happens anyway, so:

Avoid!

Donnie Darko (2001)
9/10
A masterpiece, a portrait of psychosis... it can't make sense... at all
9 June 2018
Warning: Spoilers
Most people don't get it: this is a very fitting description of a psychotic disorder (just like Edward Scissorhands is a perfect portrait of a ~ 20yo HF autist (and nothing else!)).

That's why it doesn't make sense! If it did, the movie would fail! The only big problem is the obvious age difference between the main actor and the role, which becomes unbearable at times - 1 star down.

He became mad and he commited suicide within a month of the first hardcore hallucinations! And his death is treated as a way to ease the burden on his surroundings (family).. (among other things).. and an allegory to the genetic pressures that create normal humans (..and psychotics... on occasion).

The plane crash.. etc.. it did not happen! Hence the time-loop.. the authors scream at you.
