The G Word with Adam Conover (2022)
First of all, I loved "Adam Ruins Everything"...
First of all, I loved "Adam Ruins Everything", and I am writing this having watched the first series and having listened the Factually episode related to this show.
Is it bold? Yes.
Is it bold enough? No.
Is it bolder than I expected or than "Adam Ruins Everything"? No.
However, I watched and enjoyed it.
The editing was slower, but it is a common issue after pandemic, and I do not know why.
I have written my takes on the episodes that I so deemed.
For the future, though, Mr. Conover, you may want to look into: (1) US foreign policy; (2) US international policy; (3) How US does not recognize the Human Rights Courts in Hague; (4) and how Paris Agreement is meaningless.
To Adam Conover
I really loved your show "Adam Ruins Everything", and I got upset when it did not get renewed for another season.
I had been waiting for this show for a long time. Did it disappoint? No.
However, I was expecting a bolder move against what has been done since December 2019 and to this very day, May 2022. Regardless of administrations. I can honestly say that this episode disappointed me. Only this episode.
Other than that, just thank you.
I did not expect that...
Produced by the production company of a former president, this episode criticizes his administration at one point with one sentence.
I did not expect that, honestly.
Maybe a little more criticism?
Edit: An addition, in the GPS part, all I could think of was how easy it would be to replace those 10 people with approximately 17 lines of code, and three people in three 8-hour shifts.
Compared to Adam Ruins Everything...
Compared to Adam Ruins Everything, the pacing is a bit slow.
Adam Conover aims to entertain more in this show than his former show. Being produced by one of the former presidents may cause suspicions as emphasized in the beginning of the episode.
If you have already watched his former show, you may find it familiar.
All said, it is a surprise how they managed to film inside a slaughterhouse, though.
Scarlet Witch: The Movie, ft: Sorcerer Supremes
Great visuals, actors and actresses do their best to make it believable. Benedict Wong's character proves to be a bad-ass. Olsen also does her best. Cumberbatch is as usual. No bad things there. Even the cameos can, at some level, sell the plot points.
There is one important plot hole: at the end of WandaVision, Wanda learns hot to neutralize other people's magic. She does that at the magnitude of a town. In this movie, instead of using that same magic and by-pass the Sorcerer Supremes and their wizards, she tortures and kills them. Why?
One important issue in character development: Wanda learns that her happiness means nothing if it is based on other people's misery at the end of WnadaVision. In this film, she has completely forgotten that lesson and at the end she learns it, again! Come on! Writers! Learn to respect these characters!
Disney identity politics: Wanda kills the 3 male cameos (Picard, Jim from the Office, and some guy) easily. Literally, with her mind. OK. But she fights Carter and Captain Marvel, and Captain Marvel dies because of a statue falling on her! The same Captain Marvel, who pierced a hole in Thanos's spaceship, dies because of rubble?!
And of course, she does not look for a universe where Vision is still alive.
If you have noticed, I did not mention Dr. Strange. It is because Dr. Strange has NO function or importance in this movie. Cut out his scenes completely, and the plot will not change.
In a Dr. Strange movie, Dr. Strange does not matter, at all.
Edit: other than the VFX scenes, the worst photography and the worst editing in MCU.
Home Before Dark (2020)
Apple's lack of self-awareness reached new heights...
In Finch, they show us a guy who uses different parts from different electronic gadgets to create something new, which Apple never allows users do; in Severance, they show workers who would rather kill themselves than work in a windowless place; and in this show they show us a tech company contaminating water supply in a US town.
Those children would not dare to investigate Apple's polluting the environments! Otherwise, they would be sued to hell.
Another, virtue-signaling, self-righteous b.s. On Apple's part.
And one more thing: The, worst, dad, EVER!!! I mean the mom is clueless as well, but the dad is the worst!!!!! The only reason he and his kids survive is just dumb luck, a plot device used by the "writers" of the show. Social services should take the kids away before they end up lifeless in a ditch or something.
Bill Maher: #Adulting (2022)
A mixed cassette of new rules segment on real time
If you have enough time to waste, you can literally - literally - create a list of quotations of each sentence in this rant from new rules segments and real time show where Bill "Willhelm" O'Reilly auditions for FoxNews.
Nothing new, nothing funny.
The one where John Oliver becomes another political pundit
Nope, John Oliver, not this time.
I have been watching your show since day 1. Even when you hosted the Daily Show when Jon Stewart was away making a movie. Remember that month?
However, in this episode, you dropped the ball. I mean, I ignored many time you have dropped the ball, but this I cannot, and I do not mean the data broker part. That part is great.
The opening part, the lack of self-awareness stunned me! I was disappointed. You are a double citizen, you should have and reflect a unique point of view into international relations, but instead you preferred to ignore your core principles.
I cannot get into any details because whenever I quote sentences from a show that I criticize, IMDB deletes my comment as soon as possible.
Wolf Like Me (2022)
fun, silly and easy to watch
Despite not being very original, it is fun to watch. No surprises, a certain level of fun for people to consume streaming content. It does not aim to change your life, just to help you have some good time streaming.
I do not regret watching it.
Upload: Welcome Back, Mr. Brown (2022)
Congratulations to Amazon
First of all, Amazon owns imdb and they regularly delete my reviews and not letting me know why.
Primevideo is nt very rich in my region, but I should congratulate them for two things: first, they let me watch their original content at the same time with the rest of the world and I thank you for that. Two, their speed translating despite me watching in English, it is admirable and something to applaud.
And about this show, I though they had cancelled it and I was disappointed. When they announced season 2, I was happy, glad, merry, cheerful and other synonyms. This is the day they "uploaded" the second season and I am going to finish it. TODAY.
This first episode did not disappoint.
Writing is great. The cast is great. The production is great.
So, thank you amazon.
I am sure I will be looking forward to the third season although I am currently watching the 2nd episode.
Silly, but watchable
Up until the last minute, I thought, 4 over 10. And the last scene happened.
If you can keep your belief suspended for 2 hours and forget all laws of physics, you may enjoy the film. Otherwise, you will suffer.
"2012 with the Moon" should have been the title, though.
A Story of Toxic Femininity
Matriarchal households are not so much different than those of patriarchs, apparently. This is the theme of the film if I am not mistaken.
I like Lin-Manuel Miranda, but the songs in this film are too generic. Maybe that is because the characters are two dimensional and lack depth completely.
One of the least sufficient films of Dinsney, I believe.
I have just finished watching the show. It's been on my watchlist for quite some time, and I was not disappointed.
However, how come they did not go on with a season 4?
The ending of season 3 works like the series finale, but I really would like to see the process.
You can, by the way, interpret the show in any way you want in terms of the deeds of western "civilization" as its depiction is more than realistic and vivid.
Thanks for three great seasons.
New Dracula voice talent is very talented
Brian Hull is the new Dracula, and I think he is more than capable. While I was watching, I thought there was something different about the character. Then, I had a look and it is a different artist. He is very, very good.
This installment is nothing new, though. Selena Gomez spoke her lines in bed, I believe. No intonation whatsoever. They could have replaced her as well. While you're at it, why not replace the "very talented" SNL guy. So, they would have had more money for the animation and plot development.
Next time Amazon.
After Life: Episode #3.6 (2022)
I gave it a 10, but...
I gave it a 10, but I cannot ignore certain points as I am a Ricky Gervais fan.
First point, writing in episode 2 is - how can I put it - less than optimal.
The finale is, though, filled with clichés, but they are not out of place. So, you can take them mostly to the heart.
About the ending, I might be wrong:
He remembers his days with his late wife, therefore he walks with her in summer's festival. Then, without her as she had passed away; trees turn to yellow and leaves fall and his dog passes away; and just before flowers bloom he passes away, as well.
All in all, it was a satisfying ending.
One big problem is that this final season reminded me of another Ricky Gervais film "The Invention of Lying".
There are certain scenes which are basically copies of the ones in that film, which, to be honest, bothered me a little.
I am a bit biased...
I am a bit biased as I am not interested in each and every character in Star Wars universe.
So, I watch the show just to have watched it.
That being said, this episode may host the the slowest vehicle (car?) chase in Star Wars universe. Production is great, but there is something going on with the editing, I think.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021)
I started watching with no expectations, but I really enjoyed it!
In a year with unnecessary reboots, this one is the best. I literally had no expectations.
I enjoyed the style of "a series of unfortunate events" kind of way, where nobody cares about the kids. A true 80s trope.
Huge freedom to the actors (very very talented kids?) has paid off, I believe.
They did not disrespect the original.
With enough nostalgia, the cast truly shine!
It is a better ending though I hate it to end...
Many things to say about this. There are some plot holes, of course. A bit controversial, I am sure.
Wish there could be another reason...
Hawkeye: So This Is Christmas? (2021)
Why not Oscars for stunt people?
This episode will, if anything, remind you of the meticulous work of stunt people. And you will ask why they do not get a category in the Oscars.
The character development is great, narration is good despite the plot holes.
Among the Disney+ MCU shows, this one takes the cake. The best one so far.
And I started watching the show with no expectations.
And, as a Christmas spectacular, it replaces "Die Hard". :D.
Compared to other Disney+ Series (no spoilers)
Compared to other Disney+ Series, Hawkeye is the best so far.
Let me explain:
Better character development; better narration; more relatable characters; better fit into MCU; not an exposition to upcoming MCU films, but a stand-alone TV show.
I enjoyed it, I recommend it, and probably I will watch it again.
Don't wanna jinx it...
Man, this episode is so far the best one.
The conflicts getting untied keeps you on your toes at every turn. The writing is so far exceptional.
I don't wanna jinx it. I hope the show will not go down hill at any point. And hopefully a second season?
La casa de papel (2017)
Not the best show that I have watched, but...
Not the best show that I have watched, but, definitely, one of the best!
A satisfying ending. A satisfying plot. Great (though imperfect it may be) ending.
I enjoyed each and every second of it.
Thanks to the whole crew, writers, and producers.
I colored my boring, ordinary life.
Some say it is the best ending, but...
Is it really?
So far so good, I should say...
Episode 5 is unnecessary, everyone should admit.
Despite huge plot holes, I enjoyed the episode, therefore the finale...
Thanks for a show worth watching...
Wishing best for all of you...
"Una mattina mi sono alzato O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao Una mattina mi sono alzato E ho trovato l'invasor
O partigiano, portami via O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao O partigiano, portami via Ché mi sento di morir
E se io muoio da partigiano O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao E se io muoio da partigiano Tu mi devi seppellir
E seppellire lassù in montagna O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao E seppellire lassù in montagna Sotto l'ombra di un bel fior."
Maybe the best penultimate episode... ever?
Investing in characters is one thing, empathizing is another, and understanding what they are going through is completely different.
I literally cried during the discussion between the professor and the chief.
The writers should be proud because I do not shed any tears over any fictional characters.
Those s.o.b.'s know how to write a script, I should tell you...
Taskmaster: A Wind-Dried Puffin (2017)
The water-cooler moment
Just watch the episode.
You are not going to get disappointed. The water-cooler moment is amazing.
Very entertaining and satisfying.
As the taskmaster puts it "quite a cimax"...
