My 1,000th Post!

post-1000

Well it looks like I’ve made it to 1,000 posts! Honestly, that never crossed my mind when I first started this blog in 2007. All I wanted to do was jot down some ideas and opinions about movies and TV shows so I could look back somewhere down the line and relive them. I never thought it would become so much fun to the point I considered it a serious hobby of mine. And now here I am at one…

The Leftovers – “Cairo”

Season One, Episode Eight Grade: B — After a few weeks without any major plot points regarding the Guilty Remnant, we get the biggest blow yet to the local cult in “Cairo.” Remember Kevin’s problem of blacking out?

The Leftovers - “Guest”

The Leftovers – “Guest”

Season One, Episode Six

the-leftovers-guest

Grade: A

So far, The Leftovers has shown us two methods of telling its story. One, we see a day or so pass by while cutting in and out between different story-lines, characters, usually revolving around a central theme. Then we had the “Two Boats and a Helicopter” episode that focused on one character, which was Matt, giving great insight to his beliefs, flaws, and…

The Strain - “Gone Smooth”

The Strain – “Gone Smooth”

Season One, Episode Three

the-strain-gone-smooth

Grade: B-

I haven’t completely gotten used to The Strain yet. The characters are still one-dimensional with very poorly written dialogue. There are cliches left and right. The pace of the show is being stretch so thin that it’s really not worth 100 percent of my attention. But I must admit that the third episode is the best of the series thus far, so I guess that’s a…

Fargo - “Buridan’s Ass”

Fargo – “Buridan’s Ass”

Season One, Episode Six

fargo-buridans-ass

Grade: A

As I’m still catching up with episodes of Fargo, I’m doing my best to space them out as much as I can. I’ve never been the type to binge-watch television shows, and for the good ones I never want to. I need to be able to digest every episode and take the time to think about what’s exactly being said and done. With “Buridan’s Ass” I wish I watched this live…

The Leftovers - “Gladys”

The Leftovers – “Gladys”

Season One, Episode Five

the-leftovers-gladys

Grade: B+

The events of October 14 shook the world in a way that it has never been shook before. Focusing in on the town of Mapleton, NY, we see the way different people are reacting to the loss of loved ones. Particularly, Chief Kevin Garvey is reeling in a downward spiral even when he didn’t lose anyone during October 14. But the events certainly affect everyone,…

Movie Review: Boyhood

Boyhood (2014)
165 minutes
Rated – R
Directed by Richard Linklater
Starring: Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Lorelei Linklater

boyhood-poster

Grade: A

Boyhood encapsulates every reason why I love movies. In the midst of summer blockbusters littered with explosions and empty, forgettable characters, Richard Linklater has created such an in-depth film in a daring and historic way. Filming…
