Crop And Save
Letterkenny: The Rippers (2019)
Celebration and the spoils of a champion. The boys have a major task ahead of them after winning the title. The Hicks go to the states to a strip club for some reason and nothing is really funny. Also, Stewart's persona has become truly tiresome. Grinding halt to reality.
No Takers, Eh?
A little of everything. This shows that when it comes to high quality sports, the best way to win is by cheating. There were so many focuses here that the whole thing is a stitch.
Letterkenny: Miss Fire (2019)
A Lot of Pain
Wayne is devastated by what happened in Quebec. He has holed himself up and is watching an idiotic homophobic sitcom featuring the military. The hockey team is in the semifinals and is torching everyone. Shoresy is hilarious, even though we never see his face. Stewart has a showing at the end.
Letterkenny: In It to Win It (2019)
Lost a Little
On the heels of the ast episode, this doesn't quite live up. We get to see the big hockey game with Shoresy going non-stop. Dary goes to Quebec to hopefully rekindle his romance. But there is a kicker in the end. Sets up Season 8.
Letterkenny: W's Talk, Baby (2019)
The Boys Are Back in Town
Tanis wants to get the team back together to challenge the number one team. In this one, the boys take on the girls who won their championship. But it is rather dreadful. Leading into this is another one of those TV shows which involves size comparisons. But I liked the plot setup. Also, Rosie is back in town.
Letterkenny: Letterkenny vs Penny (2019)
All characters get in on a real pet rescue charity. It could have been silly, but each of the participants is portrayed appropriately and it has a nice conclusion.
Letterkenny: Nut (2019)
Some I Do/Some I Don't
Most of this was a tiresome (over repetitive) discussion of ejaculation. I know. It's not a serious portrayal of real people. But there is a smugness as each delivers their wordplay, putting words that sound like part of a word, and flipping it out there. I want some kind of plot in addition to taking turns being "clever."
Letterkenny: Red Card Yellow Card (2019)
Dull, Dull, Dull
Back to sitting in front of a TV camera talking nonsense. Wayne has a yellow card and a red card and treats his pals like a soccer referee. I didn't find a single bit of humor as Season 7 starts to slide.
Letterkenny: Crack N Ag (2019)
Just Wasn't Funny
Watching three guys trying to do an advice show when they have no concept of how things work, just doesn't do it. All they did was pretend they had never watched a TV or listened to a radio show. Not worth five minutes let alone thirty.
Letterkenny: Valentime's Day (2019)
Wayne Doesn't Hit the Skids
Stewart and Wayne are the only ones left in the bar because the rest of the regulars have signed up for speed dating. It turns out that Stewart has an incredible intellect and the two have the most civilized conversation they've ever had. The speed dating thing is about as surreal as it can get. Well done.
Letterkenny: Yew! (2018)
Another One Bites The Dust
Dary's French girlfriend puts racy pictures on Instagram after failing to call him for over a week. Those pictures make their way all over town. There is an excellent beginning segment about astronauts masturbating in outer space. Wayne heard all the details from space cadets at Disney World.
A Bit Much
I realize that this show pushes the envelope about as far as it will go, but even as open minded as I am, this one went a bit too far. The byplay on the sexual exploits of that jerk turned me off. Also, the excessive drinking over and over again seems to be a bridge too far. I still enjoy these guys, but the exploitation really is a bit sick. And don't tell me the women really hold their own. It's ninety percent directed at them.
Letterkenny: Dyck's Slip Out (2018)
Dyck Jokes en Masse
The Dyck family, Mennonites, are looking for their daughters, who have been out feeling their oats. The whole reason for this episode is to use as many jokes, using the word Dyck (With a Y). They visit each of the entities on this show and are able to use that word with a straight face.
Dekalog: Dekalog, siedem (1989)
The young woman in the film has had a child that has been raised by her mother and father. They are judgmental because she was immature and, in their eyes, irresponsible. It is obvious that her stock is greatly diminished at home. So one day, she waits till a children's' play is over and kidnaps her daughter. This is a no win situation. The fact is she is not capable of keeping the child healthy and happy. They are on the run but have no real place to go. This is a sad tale of looking for some kind of independence when that boat has left the dock.
Dekalog: Dekalog, szesc (1989)
Is There a Second Chance?
This is a captivating film. A young man is totally taken with an older woman who lives in an apartment across from him. He uses a little telescopic device to spy on her. He has fallen in love and bumbles around, carelessly finding ways to engage with her. He is very young and careless. Eventually he spills his guts to her. He has watched her for a year and knows so much about her. She is, herself, an angry, lonely person, who sees love as baseless and manipulative. Her original motivation is to gain his affection only to stomp on his heart. But things aren't that simple and she makes a near disastrous mistake. In the end we are left to guess a bit, but the film is highly satisfying.
Dekalog: Dekalog, piec (1989)
Striking in All Respects
There are two films here. The first is the story of a sociopath who commits a murder just to commit it. There is no gain. There is no vengeance. There is no passion. For whatever reason, this is a pretty bad guy. He is brutal to people, striking out at them without provocation. We know it was just a matter of time. His killing is brutal and endlessly vicious.
The second half involve the action following his trial. He has been sentenced to death. He is full of classic paranoia. His lawyer, a victim as well, doing his first capital case, must respond to the claim that the jurors had it in for him by telling him they were against his crime. We see the human side of the man as time winds down. There is also a brutal, graphic portrayal of a hanging and all the leads up to that. Quite gut wrenching.
Dekalog: Dekalog, cztery (1989)
A young woman has a close relationship with her father. She misses him when he is gone and she has trouble getting close to other men. Why? She doesn't know, but she is able to create a scenario when she begins to open a letter from her mother, who died shortly after she gave birth. There is something almost incestual about this relationship. If what she believes is true then what is next; what is her identity? What is hers? An engaging, captivating hour one should not miss.
Letterkenny: The City (2018)
A battle is brewing as Stewart is being threatened. He has a lot of bravura. He is threatened but the spelling and grammar of the opposition makes him discount them. The Hicks have been asked to join forces with Roald and Stewart. I wish these later episodes had a bit of spark and less fisticuffs.
Letterkenny: Bush Party Season (2018)
The Bush party leads to some interesting interactions. This includes date rape drugs died green. Comparing Amish to Mennonites. The continuing effort of the battle between the hockey players and their gay adversaries. Not the most sparkling episode.
Canadian Sounding Board
If all one watched was an explanation why the guy stood at the urinal with his iPad, you needn't see anything else. The whole nuclear missile attack thing is hilarious. It is all based on a kind of sincerity that makes one wonder if it couldn't be true. There is also some funny stuff with the hockey players and their gay adversaries.
Put on the Mysterious List
This is an endless film. I guess I understand a script which pulls us back and forth with nary a real reason, other than to confuse. I see this as one of those movies that has enough substance balanced against images left to our own designs. Making "magic" the centerpiece allows for a lot of hit and miss without much explanation. I guess we are suppose to accept the joyfulness of the two women without much foundation. I did stay with it to the end and some of the images are stuck in my head. But I agree with one of the reviewers, one needs to see films that are considered significant just to be able to discuss them. I would never bother again.
Letterkenny: The Three Wise Men (2018)
The Gifts Are the Best
Bringing all the principle characters together for a Christmas celebration is great. As Wayne divies up the presents and then get pictures taken, it's a joy to watch his expressions. Each has some opinion about everything and much of it is caustic. Still, Katy tries her best to get some Christmas spirit alive.
Subdued to Perfection
This is the story of a woman, held back by a boorish husband. It is India during British imperialism. She strives to please him. He is full of himself. He produces a vacuous newspaper whose political views aren't even caustic enough to bother the British. Before long a young man shows up. He is gentle and sees the worth of Charulata and encourages her writing which is superior to her husbands. Of course, she falls in love with him and is torn between her obligation to a weak marriage and her emotions.
Letterkenny: Bock et Biche (2018)
Same old stuff. Looking for trouble. Finding it. The same old fist fights (all of them look exactly the same). Lots of drunkenness and rude behavior. I thought the episode would never end. By the way. What would that gorgeous woman see in Dary I'll never know.
Letterkenny: Back to Back to Back (2018)
Girl's (Women's) Hockey
Through some subterfuge, the hockey boys get some really great results. Shoresy insults the world, and Stewart goes off to rehab. We are left with a mystery, however. The focus on hockey gives this a little sports mainstream essence.
