Prime Suspect (1991)
3 Attempts to enjoy and no pleasure
I adore a mystery, a great crime series. I have tried 3 times to like this series as I have now finished the 27th season of Taggart. I tried watching this series years ago when it debuted. I thought the feminist slant would be a wonderful historical achievement; however, despite the issues w. Workplace discrimination; a feminist did not have to be and should never have been portrayed as Helen Mirren's character. She's not a likable character. It's not sexist to want a lead character, male, female and/or otherwise to be likable. I have a list of my favourite detective/crime series and the 1 thing they all have in common is at least 1 "likable" character. I find Mirren's character unlikable and taking on all of the reprehensible negative qualities of the male persona of old and embracing them to be liked by her peers. I have loved Dame Helen in Calendar Girls, Red, Red2 and more...but I loathe this series and find it gruesome to struggle through.
The Owl and the Pussycat (1970)
Too funny for words on Panties
I adore this movie. It is ridiculously eccentric and funny. Segal is great and a role that really illustrated his talent. Barbara is barbara, always and most impressive as an unsuspected comedic actress. BTW. I cannot sleep without the TV on either.
Johnny Skidmarks (1998)
Too dark for some, not moi'
Not slow as others have intimated, slowly compelling. I absolutely adore Lithgow, and he again does not disappoint, such an underrated actor. Just enough of Jack Black, not to be distracting. Twists and turns to the end. The last 20 minutes were intense for me as I do not appreciate a lot of graphic violence. I fast forwarded to avoid something anticipated that thankfully I didn't have to avoid. Was ABLE to go back and SEE the scene. And yes, it does know that it is a crime suspenceFULL thriller w. Appropriate violence to the theme of the storyline.
Good Bones (2016)
Great Name, Wonderfully Appropriately When It REALLY Fits.
I hate this show. These 2 women have to be the most GENERIC among all the HGTV Shows. They take a gazillion TRENDY Things and CRAM them into 1 room. 1 of the roofs was absolutely visibly crooked. AND, OMG...they spent WAY TOO much $ on each and every project. My daughter and I are bingeing shows during this 2020 Pandemic and we just watched 1 house they did w. a 4500.00 house that DID NOT HAVE GOOD BONES. I jacked up a house once in a reno and even though I thought it was too ambitious, it still wasn't as horrible as that house. I mean there is nothing to this show other than spending 200,000K to make 30K...yes, that's a profit, but OMG. I spent 30 on a 60K house and made 90K. A Hillary Designer these 2 never came close. Tacky, Generic, Too much $$$$$$$$
