New Girl - “Dice”

New Girl – “Dice”

Season Four, Episode Two

new-girl-dice

Grade: B+

After a stellar premiere, New Girl continues its new-found single life once again by exploring an app called Dice, which is basically Tinder (you know, that booty call app where you respond whether or not you like what you see and wait for a match). While Schmidt has had much success hooking up with girls on Dice (which is what it’s obviously for), Jess…

Movie Review: The Drop

The Drop (2014)
106 minutes
Rated – R
Directed by Michael R. Roskam
Starring: Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace

the-drop-poster

Grade: B+

The Drop is James Gandolfini’s final role as an actor before he passed away. It was impossible to not think about that during the movie and I found myself scrutinizing his every word in this mob-thriller set in Brooklyn. Gandolfini is no rookie when it comes to mob…

The Big Bang Theory - “The Junior Professor Solution”

Season Eight, Episode Two

big-bang-theory-s08e02

Grade: C

While Sheldon’s departure was handled too quickly and way too tidily, the whole gang is back together and I guess that’s a good thing (though it would’ve been incredibly intriguing to have Sheldon apart from the group for at least a few episodes). Sheldon gets the news that he can move on from String Theory if he agrees to be a professor and teach a class at…

The Big Bang Theory - “The Locomotion Interruption”

Season Eight, Episode One

big-bang-theory-s08e01

Grade: C+

Even though The Big Bang Theory has seen better days, I’m always willing to give shows the benefit of the doubt when entering a new season. So after we’ve meandered around with the group of friends in The Big Bang Theory for seven years, the main cast are now being paid quite handsomely so hopefully the result will be better quality. Unfortunately, that…

The Mindy Project - “We’re a Couple Now, Haters!”

Season Three, Episode One

mindy-project-were-a-couple

Grade: B

In sitcoms, when you have the main characters romantically linked early on in a show’s run, that usually leads to a lot of creative problems for the writers. In most (or all) cases, the tension building up to the moment is a lot more fun than when you finally get there. New Girl was great before Jess and Nick decided to date, once Jim and Pam (The Office)…

New Girl - “The Last Wedding”

Season Four, Episode One

new-girl-last-wedding

Grade: A-

The third season of New Girl was rocky, primarily due to Nick and Jess’ roller-coaster relationship inevitably leaving them contemplating if they could recapture the friendship they once had. It was a questionable decision for the show-runners to throw Nick and Jess together so quickly and so passionately, but we have seemed to weather that storm and now, for…

The Leftovers - “The Prodigal Son Returns”

Season One, Episode Ten

the-leftovers-prodigal-son4Grade: A

If you’re looking for answers then you’re watching the wrong show. It seemed clear from almost the very beginning that The Leftovers was never going to offer any type of explanation about how or why the people who disappeared did so. And for some people, that’s insanely frustrating. It brings back memories of how mysteries were left unanswered in that Lindelof…

Movies Left to Watch in 2014

Movies Left to Watch in 2014

It’s been a good year so far in the world of cinema. I usually like to break up the calendar year into three movie phases. First, there is the Oscars hangover phase that usually deliver films that didn’t screen well for the awards season (like Monuments Men) and then films that didn’t want to compete with the summer blockbusters. There’s usually one film that sneaks in the first phase and comes…
