M*A*S*H (1972–1983)
10/10
Great series
4 April 2020
MASH is a truly unique series, with both the seriousness of war and yet laugh out loud humor. The parallels are undeniable, where heartbreaking moments are mixed with goofy guys making jokes. The acting is great, the characters have depth and are well developed. The cast have great chemistry during both during the serious times and riffing off each other's banter. A timeless classic.

Truly wild
4 April 2020
This documentary reads as a soap opera, with cults and backstabbing and the feds and extraditions and prison. It's all so wild. The story itself is captivating, especially seeing as it's a true story, and so much of the events are on camera. The documentary makes do a good job of providing relevant interviews and telling each side of the story. The flow of the documentary allowed the storyline to unfold naturally. A truly well made documentary about a crazy event in the backwoods of Oregon.

no substance
2 April 2020
Certainly an incredible and harrowing story, but this short documentary detailing Natascha's abduction has no substance. There's no purpose. The people interviewed are relevant and include Natascha herself, but the re-enactments hardly tell the story, and theres no natural flow to the documentary. Could have been done much better.

Great start....
2 April 2020
This show started off amazing, the characters were interesting, the concept intriguing, and the story captivating. I loved how the girls interact with each other and develop as characters. The first season was dynamite, I was hooked. Then season 3 came with ridiculous story arcs, a saboteur? undercover agent? It was too much.

Great doc
2 April 2020
This is a really great short documentary. The story unfolds as Juan and his lawyer try desperately to prove that he was at a dodgers game with his daughter and not off murdering a man. The show is well made and unfolds unexpectedly. A great watch and an amazing story.

Crazy
2 April 2020
This show is just wild from the start to the finish. Home zoo owners from across the country are interviewed about their stories, and it's just indescribable the weirdness they get up too. The show itself has a lot of material since Joe Exotic films every aspect of his life. The first few episodes are crazy, and good, and then the show tries to get serious and it losses some charm. With Joe's conviction, the interviews are haphazard and there's no coverage of the trial, making the last episodes feel amateurish.

Absolutely amazing
1 April 2020
Everything about this show is amazing. The acting is superb, the cinematography breathtaking, and the story captivating. And to top it off, still manages to deliver some great scares. The character depth makes the interactions between siblings feel so real. The way the story unravels between the past and present is beautifully done. Great show.

Unexpectedly good
30 March 2020
This is definitely a case of having to stick with it until the end to make any sense of what's going on. The first 2/3 of the movie is just a jumble of random scenes, but then the mysteries start to unravel and it all starts to make sense. I found this to be quite an unexpected good movie. The cinematography was quite beautiful, the acting good, and the characters had depth. The storylines were at times convoluted but fell into place wonderfully.

Fun scooby sequel
30 March 2020
Definitely not as good as the first scooby-doo live action movie, but still a fun mystery inc. movie. The actors are so well cast that it makes these movies so enjoyable to watch. The plot and action scenes were a shade more ridiculous in this movie, which takes away from the movie a bit. Overall, its a mindless action/comedy with a killer soundtrack.

Good scooby-doo fun
30 March 2020
Is this an Oscar worthy movie? No. But it's all in good fun, a proper scooby-doo mystery with a few good laughs. The actors are so well cast to play the mystery inc. gang that it makes this movie so much fun. I enjoy watching this from time to time, it a mindless comedy.

Intense thriller
29 March 2020
Jolie kills it as Salt in this intense spy/coverup action movie. The action was well choreographed and kept up a good pace throughout. The storyline had a good flow and some twists were unexpected. The acting was good for an action movie. Overall a solid action thriller.

Boring
29 March 2020
I found this movie to be quite boring and the ending predictable. The illusions read too much like CGI to be believable. Overall, not my cup of tea. However, the acting and cinematography were quite good.

Captivating documentary
29 March 2020
Quite an interesting documentary following an internet group attempting to track down a cat killer who then turns to murder. The documentary was thorough and included interviews from relevant people of the internet group and the Canadian police. The information was detailed and the storyline flowed well as the investigations unraveled.

Good special
28 March 2020
Short doc on the great hurricane of 1780 and the likelihood that such a storm will occur again. The documentary went into a good amount of detail about hurricane formation and past history of storm frequencies. The show had multiple interviews from relevant scientists and credible data.

Great bio-mentary
28 March 2020
Nick Yarris does a great job in this biography / documentary, telling his story. It's both captivating and emotional, and luckily has a good ending. The editing and filming of the documentary really compliment the experience of listening to his story. Well made.

Criminal: UK (2019– )
5/10
Good but could be better
28 March 2020
The concept of this short series is quite interesting where the main story unfolds in the interrogation room. Different suspects are interrogated for various types of crime by the same team of police officers. There's a general lack of background on the cops and the suspects which makes it hard to get invested. They try to get a story going between the group of cops, but there's too little time spent on the relationships.

Captivating... but very dark
27 March 2020
A dark thriller, that just gets more convoluted as the main character descends into madness. The show is quite captivating, drawing you into the story and the characters. However, as the story unravels it just gets weirder and darker. My favor for the main character dropped off as each episode played out and in the end I didnt care for her very much.

Mr. Right (I) (2015)

Tries too hard
27 March 2020
This movie tried way too hard to be cool and funny and edgy, which results in a one note boring mess. The acting is good, but literally all of the jokes fall flat, I don't think I laughed out loud once. There's really no chemistry between the main characters. It's just all very bland. Well choreographed fight scenes though.

The Bygone (2019)

Captivating drama
27 March 2020
A captivating drama following kip, a young cowboy, as he tries to find and save a young woman being held captive. The cinematography was well done, the acting pretty good, and the storyline had a nice flow. I found myself drawn into the story and into the characters. It was obviously low budget, but well done.

Confusing
26 March 2020
While the main plot is fairly easy to follow, there are too many tangents and unresolved questions. The storyline jumps around and introduces side plots that are left unexplained and only muddy the central story. The acting was good and the English dubbing worked well enough. But just too darn confusing.

Captivating, moves fast
26 March 2020
Rarely do I say this about a series, but it moved too darn fast! The story went by at breakneck speed as they tried to jam this woman's legacy into four episodes. The acting was good, the characters had depth, and the cinematography unusual. Overall a fairly successful docu-drama.

Collide (I) (2016)

Predictable
25 March 2020
While the acting is good and the action scenes better than expected, this movie is just too predictable and borderline ridiculous. The big plot twist was a bit unbelievable and came too late to save this cliche action letdown. While hoults character can be commended for keeping going, most of his escapes are either lucky or ridiculous.

Good documentary
25 March 2020
A good documentary detailing the conviction off six people over the disappearance of two Icelandic men in the sixties. The confessions obtained by the six charged were questioned after diaries were found which detailed extensive interrogations and solitary confinement. The doc went into a good level of detail and provided first had interviews from police, journalists, and surviving members of the six convicted.
