Crop And Save
Virgin River (2019)
Was once great
Really enjoyed 1st couple seasons. Now becoming way to melodramatic. Too heavy & depressing. The whole business with Charmaine is just painful to watch now.
I could go on but if it doesn't lighten up a little I won't continue to watch.
I know everyone has drama in life but this is just everyone in Virgin river has a heavy issue to deal with. So please dial it down.
Fast, OTT fun & Helen Mirren!
It is exactly what I expected with a few more laughs & emotional story lines. The cast have an easy flow amongst them and you can tell they know each other well hence it just works.
You get what you pay for don't expect an academy award movie but if you love cars, OTT action & a few laughs you'll enjoy this. So many cool cars & Vin is in his element I think. I love the fact he doesn't make it all about him. No ego there I suspect unlike other actors that have to be in every scene.
Helen Mirren is so right in this role. Love her & her unforgiving way of not being cast in "old" roles. She has sass & looks amazing.
Stick around for the scene after the first credits.
My only thing is (yes I know it is expected but) all those nice cars getting wrecked.
June Again (2020)
Go & see it!
I agree with a review written about the title needing a rethink. It is a brilliant Australian production with excellent cast and script. Apparently it was filmed in 3 weeks! Shows the dedication and professionalism of the australian production team, cast etc.
The story itself is well written & has a unexpected moments that make it even more poignant and meaningful. It is a story about family, life, mistakes made & misunderstandings.
Having had a grandmother pass away from Alzheimer's it is so relatable. Insidious disease that is so hard on the family.
Noni Hazlehurst shines as June and her wit is as always worth a chuckle.
Please go see it take a tissue but tell your friends to go tell everyone to go.
Hudson & Rex (2019)
Against the norm of trash, gore & swearing Thank God!
There is so much trash on TV but this is so easy to watch. Not always easy to pick the culprit & I think it is getting better. I love the relationship "Rex" has with the actors and he seems to understand every word.
We need more shows like this without the swearing & gore too. Hope it continues. The scenery is an added bonus.
Operation Buffalo (2020)
Brilliant Aussie dramedy. Watch it!
Tongue firmly planted in cheek humour but does not take away from the seriousness of the topic of Maralinga. Acting is top notch as is the writing.
Only 6 episodes of a time in our history that should be heard of more.
I don't understand the low ratings. People either don't have a sense of humour or don't like a serious topic been shown in this way.
Just loved it.
Firefly Lane (2021)
Bring on Season 2. Katherine Heigl is back!
Believable, sweet, funny, sad, I could go on. The cris crossing of the years was done well. The music of the 70s & 80s I love but Oh God the fashion was atrocious.
I loved the way they connected things. Never read book but want to now although hope it doesn't spoil the series for me.
Kate gets herself in some hilarious situations. Tully is a mess and with a childhood like she had any wonder.
So much misunderstandings and funny how we all have the same life experiences in families but remember them differently. From perceived slights to judging someone for what we perceive as not caring.
Can't wait for season 2. The cast is brilliant and the 2 actors who play the young Tully & Kate are excellent in their roles.
Not for everyone. More depressing than fun
I get it the world has changed but during the year of the COVID we all need a bit of lightness in our lives and this isn't it. I get the message it is trying to say Santa is giving out more coal we are raising more spoilt entitled brats. But this was depressing & violent.
I liked the ending and it was certainly different but would I watch it again and put it on the must watch every year list? No
It did have it's moments wasn't all bad but it missed the mark for me & my family felt the same.
Not meant for the oscars. Just good fun
It's a family movie not meant for the oscars so don't expect it to be. Go and enjoy the ride and come out with a smile on your face.
Really enjoyed this so much more than I expected to. Yes Roberts' accent was a tad annoying but the movie was such fun and we all need a bit of that in our lives. The visuals were good and the gags had me really laughing. Wasn't stupid comedy i thought.
Frankie Drake Mysteries (2017)
light and fun needs time to find its feet.
Miss Fishers' murder mysteries is a favourite of mine so I wanted to check this out too. A little disappointed. Costumes and set design are fine but the lead actress plays it with very little emotion and delivers her lines like she's not emotionally connected to the role. It is early days and that sometimes it takes a while for a an actor to know her character and I hope this happens.
It does have potential and the supporting cast are quite fun. Not being familiar totally with the era I'm not sure of the historical accuracy but I can put that aside if it gets a little more gritty while still having a bit of fun.
I do enjoy the banter between the characters so will keep watching.
