Stargirl: Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite (2020)
Season 1, Episode 5
6/10
Why does this episode deserve an 8?
19 June 2020
There is not anything new to view. The team-up drama is deja vu and way too predictable. Seems more like a Power Puff team. Beth need to be more mature and Rick less. This seems more of a filler episode. Could have been better. The first three episodes were great. I hope it doesn't go downhill from here.

What is inside the book?
11 May 2020
Great to see how Batwoman has strengths and weaknesses. A good twist in the end. Sometimes I wonder how Batwoman uses her grapple gizmo without aiming properly (to some object) that even would make James Bond laugh!

S01E18: 7.5/10

The Flash: So Long and Goodnight (2020)
Season 6, Episode 16
6/10
Never hire a woman director.
22 April 2020
First of all, after a one month break, welcome back Flash fans! There is a trend going on- Grodd, then Kid Flash, then Harrison Wells and now Rag Doll. Seems that the writers are out of ideas and simply reverting back to the previous seasons.

There wasn't proper screen time for Mr. Rag Doll in S05E05 so maybe the writers/director tried to re-invent his character. The effects were cool and creepy also.

The writers also need to respect the audience's I.Q. level. How can a normal person bear the pain of a bullet? Also, jump out of a vehicle that is running at 120 miles per hour?

Sadly, I am losing interest and now everything feels forced, except for the dialogue between Barry and Joe. I hope this doesn't turn out to be the next Arrow. If so, then it is better to end it with Season 6 instead of creating superficial arcs.

Time to bring in Tom Canavagh for the director's seat.

Batwoman: Off with Her Head (2020)
Season 1, Episode 15
9/10
What a surprise...The best of this Season!
17 March 2020
I keep wondering is the audience really interested in Batwoman or are they degrading DC deliberately? I think people should watch this episode and then rate it!

In this episode, we really get to see the darker side of Kate and Beth. This time it involves every family member. The twist at the end also surprised me. I don't want to spoil it!

This time - no LGBT, no costumes. It is a simple non-linear storyline. I am anticipating something better for the next episode. If the mass production viewers aren't satisfied with this episode, they should stop watching this series. Period.

Batwoman: Take Your Choice (2020)

8/10
It is getting better and better!
21 February 2020
I would like to advise female haters to stop watching this TV series. If the antagonist would have been a male, it would have recieved a 8.8 average score. The writers have used Crisis themes nicely. I hope that there aren't any fillers in the upcoming episodes!

Beats Mario and Max Payne...
19 February 2020
...and even Hitman, when it comes to video adaptions.The movie is predictable a but also entertaining. The third act is pretty predictable by the way. Despite all that, the movie did its job. Everyone in my theater was entertain. Jim carrey always make you laugh, and this movie is no different.

Not the typical forced feminism movie!
18 February 2020
This is much better than the boring Suicide Squad. The characters and cinematography are colorful. Margot Robbie gave a phenomenal performance as Quinn, and the side characters played second fiddle. People are expecting a frame-to-frame comic adaption, which is not possible. We have seen it in Marvel comics also. The only issue was the unnecessary R rating. That is where the director messed it up. Could have gone with PG-13 and rake more money! It is true that they have shown men as bad, but this is what we get when the Joker is bad, right?

The Oscars (2020 TV Special)
5/10
Again forced feminism and silly & stupid jokes, and way too scripted!
15 February 2020
Way too many concert performances. It needs to be cut down, seriously.Rudolph and Wiig were unbearable to watch! Joaquin Phoenix's speech was the saving grace. The reference to his late brother at the end was nice! US is avoiding China and embracing South Korea- a welcome change! German Willmijn Verkaik was a nice introduction to promote more diversity. Diversity now shining!

Batwoman: A Mad Tea-Party (2019)
Season 1, Episode 8
8/10
Marvel fans, kindly watch Daredevil instead!
7 December 2019
Seriously, there are pros in this episode along with the cons. Potentially, this is getting stonger after each episode. Why the agressive backlash? I mean the acting and script is fine. We get to see the real Alice.

You can't compare this with Daredevil. And not every episode of Daredevil was perfect. It had its flaws too. If the mass production doesn't like Batwoman, they should not be biased against DC by giving bad ratings!

Titans: Nightwing (I) (2019)
Season 2, Episode 13
6/10
I wish they would stop the non-linear narrative!
2 December 2019
I wish they would stop the non linear narrative! Two steps forward and then one step backwards. And then some lame writing in the finale. This season had a lot of potential but almost wasted it! Raven's power seemed generic and exaggerated. I hope we see Deathstroke in S3!

Titans: E.L._.O. (I) (2019)
Season 2, Episode 11
7/10
Finally, this is now heading in the right track!
15 November 2019
Warning: Spoilers
We had Bruce dancing 🕺in one of Dick's hullicinations in the 'Bruce Wayne' episode. But this time, it seems the director had got it right. I presume that it was the real Bruce when he was Dawn, Donna, Rachel and Starfire 🌟. Who knows?

Finally, we get to know that Rose is messing up with Jason's mind in order to create chaos. The only letdown was killing a scientist, which seemed an unnecessary evil.

I hope they add episode 13 and don't mess it up like the writers previously did in Season 1!

My rating = 7.5/10

Is it me or the critics v audience RT ratings? Or the forced feminism?
7 November 2019
After watching this movie, I was surprised to see a RT 71% based on a total count of 272 critics and an 84% audience score based on 7,442 counts. If the whole universe is appreciating it, why is it considered to be the next flop, and no one seems interested in paying for this flick?

I think it is the same critics of Deadpool that were paid off to generate some hype. The script had no character development. Even Genisys was far better than this soft sequel. I know T:G has an IMDB rating of 6.4 but at least China managed to save it from being a box office flop. Who is going to save T:DF? It has a rating of 6.5 and I think it will drop to 6 by the time it has ended its run. Not even the magic combo of Cameron, Schwarzenegger and Hamilton will save it from being 'terminated'!

Get ready for the future...because there is going to be a sequel...I won't be back...even this would make Robert Patrick laugh!

Batwoman: Mine Is a Long and a Sad Tale (2019)
Season 1, Episode 5
8/10
37 ratings and no reviews!
4 November 2019
I keep wondering is the audience really interested in Batwoman or are they degrading DC deliberately? I think people should it give it one more chance.

This time we really get to see the inside view of Kate and Beth. The twist at the end also surprised me!

This time no LGBT, no costumes. It is a simple non-linear storyline. If the mass production viwers aren't satisfied with this episode, they should stop watching this series. Period.

Titans: Atonement (I) (2019)
Season 2, Episode 9
7/10
I have mixed feelings for this episode!
2 November 2019
Warning: Spoilers
Slade infoms Dick with pride that he won and Dick is now alone. Loneliness tends to play tricks on the mind. Believe it, I have experinced this emotion as it is very complex but beating & bashing cops was way too silly by the writers.

The only bonding that seemed logical was between Connor and Gar. The rest of the gang parts ways after learning the ugly truth and you can predict that this scene was going to come sooner or later.

Titans fall. I think of some tragedy in the upcoming episodes and Superboy will unite the rest of the team members

My rating for this episode: 7/10 Season 1: 60/8 = 7.5 Season 2: 64.5/8 = 7.17

The Flash: There Will Be Blood (2019)
Season 6, Episode 4
7/10
Another filler episode
31 October 2019
Only the last 6 minutes was great, especially the acting, otherwise this episode felt like a feather. We all know what are Ramsey's motives. Sadly, I am losing interest and now everything feels forced, except for the dialogue between Barry and Joe. I hope this doesn't turn out to be the next Arrow. If so, then it is better to end it with Season 6 instead of creating superficial arcs.

My rating : 6.5/10

Batwoman: Who Are You? (2019)
Season 1, Episode 4
7/10
A rushed-villain and too much lovey-dovey!
29 October 2019
I think the series is being rushed and not taking their time. Why the hurry? I don't think they will put 22 episodes just like The Flash and Arrow. The writers should give out the mystery elements too much otherwise we are going to see a lot of filler episodes.

Pros- Batwoman using her utility belt. Scientific points were used and of course Fox as her advisor.

Cons- The love scene was little longer than expected. The villain didn't had a purpose. In fact, I don't think anyone will remember!

Not bad but not great also!
21 October 2019
Those who watch the episode trailer will not like it that much. Elliot's role hasn't been justified as it should have and which is why this episode is more than a filler. Still we get to know more about the supporting cast.

7/10
I hope WB will reduce the number of episodes for S6!
16 October 2019
I have noticed that a new time has come out- anti-matter! Why this concept didn't came up in the initial seasons? The writers seems to use the affection we have seen before! Acting was nice but it seems like déjà vu all again! Caitlyn's role which was nice in the opening episode seemed very immature. There seems an improvement in the dialogues and the delivery seems more impressive. MyFlash Ratings: Season 1: 200/23= 8.69; Season 2: 193/23= 8.23; Season 3: 188/23= 8.17; Season 4: 146/23= 6.65; Season 5: 158/22= 7.18; Season 6: 13.5/2 = 6.75 This episode=7/10

Batwoman (2019– )
8/10
Is the hate coming from Marvel men?
10 October 2019
Usually, I don't like 'Pilot' episodes but this one was the best after The Flash. I think the audience didn't watch the show and just made up some of the worst reviews like poor acting, generic CGI, etc. which seems sarcasm at the highest level. I would like to mention that I had some issues in the past. For example, watching Bumblebee which focused on the girl Charlie Watson and GoT (S08E03) which focused on Arya Stark as the only salvation. But this is - Batwoman - and the focus will definitely be on her. Yes, I think the lovey-dovey scenes went a little too long but I think this series has the potential for the mass production to enjoy and not let then think about forced-feminist issues.

The Flash: Into the Void (2019)
Season 6, Episode 1
7/10
Welcome back, Flash fans!
9 October 2019
The good thing about the starting episode is that that have started exactly where Season 5 ended. I don't want to mention the villains. Caitlyn's role was also nice. Nothing impressive about the dialogues. I hope in the coming episodes, the writers will push the envelope forward instead of dragging it into a soap opera. This episode=6.5/10

Joker (2019)
8/10
Don't overthink like a Marvel critic.
6 October 2019
How many times you feel for a super-villain? Joker, yes Joker. Every generation deserves its Joker. And this time, we got something so refreshing. If you want to see a non-fiction super-villain flick, go for Joker.

If Marvel does the combo movies right, it is DC who triumphs over Marvel when it comes to solo. More of an art film than visuals dazzling from the silver screen. This is not a dazzling Avengers, so don't expect too many visuals.

This really shows how the gap between rich and poor. It shows class in today's mass production. It depicts social norms in today's society. Even my deepest secrets! As Harvey Dent mentioned in TDK - "The world is cruel".

You almost feel for the Joker, be it his groaning, moaning or whining. Even the hysterical laughing (some people even started laughing hysterically after watching this film!) Seductive and psychotic -Totally dark amusement!

This is a prequel to taglines such as "Why so serious". And the best part is that the director didn't copy Ledger's accent. If Heath Ledger won the Oscar, posthumously, then Pheonix should get the award himself and also this movie should win the Best Adapted screenplay award.

A tight slap to hard-core Marvel fans who think Venom is the winner. How many solo Marvel movies has scored an IMDB score of 9.1/10 in the opening weekend? Too bad this is a stand-alone film. Sequel, please!

Westworld: The Bicameral Mind (2016)
Season 1, Episode 10
9/10
Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin never died. They simply became music!
12 September 2019
Warning: Spoilers
This is like a concept combination of blockbusters - Artificial Intelligence, Ex Machina and Terminator: Rise of the Machines. This may sound harsh to the mass production but the the security at the lab sucks. Meave does a whole lot to unleash her master plan and non of the employees hardly noticed. How can a state-of -the-art lab have such an inferior security?

Yet, I loved the psychology used in this episode. May be you will need to watch this again. But concepts have been seen over the past. Remember, Ex machina - she starts to evolve? Or T:3 - Machines start rising and attacking everyone. Still credit goes to the director.

My rating 8.25/10

Sadly, there is no 'secret' left in the script.
12 September 2019
There seems no secret ingredient left. There are three story-lines with no interconnection. I am happy that I didn't go to the theater to watch this movie. The "cute bunny" super hero is only the saving grace of the film. Rooster getting a moment was also fine. Overall, voice acting was pretty nice.

I really didn't mind a sequel as the first one was original and complete comedy. This seems to be a forced 'cash-magnet' sequel. My rating = 5.5/10

GOLD (I) (2018)
6/10
Where is Dyand Chand?
10 September 2019
An good attempt of history that could have been directed better. Pros: A great pick to be released on Independence Day. The last 30 minutes had great acting and patriotism. Better than other Bollywood picks which just shows actors in European bars and beaches. Cons: The first 30 minutes didn't had good acting and was very monotonous. Too many English words used when Tapan Das speaks the script. He keeps calling younger lads "Dada" which seems queer Way too predictable for a fictionalized script. Unnecessary songs and dancing.

A little dose of comedy is good, but not on a national scale. The director should have respected the audience's IQ. Does this movie worth gold. Maybe silver!

Carnival Row (2019– )
6/10
Don't keep your expectations high and view it as a one-time watch!
8 September 2019
It seems that this binged series can't match the heights of Stranger Things. I wish the writers could write the narrative of the previous episodes just like the finale. My guess for the villain was on target (check for S01E06 review; I don't want to include any spoilers in my review). The direction seems in place. The politics in Parliament also seems in order. Apart from the songs, there is nothing to write about. All we see is flashbacks, though it will be easy for the audience to guess without revealing much. Cara Delevigne is surprising sweet and beautiful. She has improved her acting skills a lot. The production design is still dim. It is causing a little pain to watch as it is very dark to view. I hope the scriptwriters increase the speed of the series and go full throttle for Season 2!
