Crop And Save
Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)
Another Film about Revelations
Worst comic based film since Avengers: End Game. The constant veiled references to the New Testament etc etc. Poor writing, poor acting, poor FX. They take what was given for free and sell it back to you...sigh Meanwhile, the original comic and characters from earlier decades is still decent for kids.
A little spoofing
Obvious was the Groundhog Day reference, but there was another, lesser known reference to the film The Girl Who Leapt Through Time(the number of loops left)
Cliched and boring
Terrible FX and a horrible script. It wasn't a terrible concept. It was just so cliched. I've read many time travel and time loop related things and seen many movies and TV shows based around the same concept, this was about the worst.
Star Trek: Lower Decks (2020)
Cookie cutter type show
Yet another foray into the world of emasculation and sarcasm...
Finally! Looked like a bunch of stuff from the cutting room floor thrown together at the last second. I've watched a multitude of shows and while many had poor endings...this one is in the top ten of the worst sci-fi endings ever.
Goodbye...Marvel on TV (other than the cartoons they keep pushing).
The entertainment industry has been working overtime to make sure all of our childhood 'heroes' get destroyed. As a child I enjoyed super-heroes because they were uncomplicated and simply beat up the bad guy or saved the girl etc etc...now they have been turned into regular jerks with powers...sigh...
I think we have enough real life just living our real lives.
But...that's just my opinion.
Omega Doom (1996)
Same sad story...your place or mine?
"I never understood...why so few of us get along."
Here come the machines!
Wow, this is just like Star Trek Voyager when the Borg had control of all the time tunnels and went about manipulating everything...or wait maybe it's like Continuum...no wait, maybe it's like Terminator...or maybe like Picard during the last episode...I can't decide which story this is copying. The good thing is, they use just enough footage and moments from previous seasons to try and tempt you into going back and buying the DVDs and BluRays...excellent marketing ploy.
Episode 11: A Brand New Day ~ What an antiphrasis,
Total Recall (1990)
15% Phillip Dick and 85% Piers Anthony
This film uses much of Piers Anthony's novel Mute from 1981. From the mutant enclaves, to the psychic mutants, even the woman with 3 breasts (Knot's secretary York Thus the pun for "New York" she was a new version of York). Dick's story was almost nothing like the film.
A piece of info for the fans...the original VHS and even some DVD releases of this film actually credited Piers Anthony with writing the book that the film was based on...changed it quite suddenly about 10 years ago or so
Still, a decent film.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Stolen (2020)
A great title
For last nights episode. The team as predicted meets some old frenemies, The mystery surrounding the main character (that still hasn't shown up for 1 episode) deepens. Like a mash-up of the novel Mute (Piers Anthony) and Alita/Ghost in the Shell the story continues with a secret war between factions...while the rest of Earth has to clean up the mess. This is like an homage to a spoof of a farce
Episode 10 : STOLEN
Yet another episode of stolen ideas from other sci-fi shows and stories. I realize people don't like negative comments...but as a fan of sci-fi and various other genres, I must say that these episodes and the entire series has been a shameless rip-off off of other peoples writing.
Glorifying a thief
Why am I not surprised? So this fiasco continues. In this case, the song "Don't you forget about me." means all the sci-fi authors and people that made this particular show possible. Too bad the "creators" forgot to give credit.
Fanservice for the fans...not all bad, just played out.
The Nice Guys (2016)
I watched it
Reminded me a bit of Ford Fairlane. Just a vibe. No spoilers, had a couple funny bits.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
So I sat down to watch, Battlestar Galactica, erm I mean Dollhouse, oops I meant Continuum...darn...okay...Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. whew, I get all those shows confused. Anyway, some good acting from Enver (Sousa)...not the worst ep. Not giving spoilers...just saying, not the worst episode this season, but not up to par with the earlier seasons.
Limping across the finish line
So ep 2 continues the "Terminator" type story. An android having to wait for who knows how long until the team lands in the next time period...(Star Trek the Next Generation ~ Time's Arrow)(Futurama) etc etc...maybe next season will be more original.
It's too bad
This show had the potential to make up for last years fiasco. It hasn't. It seems as though they're trying to have fun, it isn't working.
It was the best of times...it was the worst of times
Or the worst of the Star Trek film franchise. I was a fan, so I thought it was watchable.
"What does God need with a starship?"
A: "I will tell you, when We get there."
The Next Three Days (2010)
Moral of the story is...
Don't try this at home...Plenty of suspense and all the stuff that makes an escape movie "fun". An item of note: He helped her escape by falsifying glucose results on a lab test. Then the jail simply sent her to a hospital when they couldn't get a hold of the lab. Erm, the jail would have done a simple finger prick test right there. That would have shown whether she needed insulin or not. That glaring error aside... at the hospital, they started her immediately on 20 units of insulin...without testing her blood glucose...wow.
Still, it has appeal...sometimes we all wish we could "escape".
Also...On the movie poster, Russell Crowe's hair and face actually looks like a crow.
The Mandela Effect (2019)
Another film about regrets. Surely, many people would love to take back their lives and replace or recover what or whom they've lost. I've found that real life has enough to mourn without movies reminding us.
Grab your water skis...
This show has officially jumped the shark (for an unprecedented 3rd time). That makes it apropos that this episode was set in the 50's.
Btw: They're probably still in the framework. Just click your heels together three times...etc, etc.
Rush Hour (2016)
Why are these horrible shows allowed on television? Terrible editing during the fight scenes etc. A couple funny situations, but overall...a terrible show.
True...not the worst movie ever...though an hour and 50 minutes of three dudes in a car is a bit chintzy...dialogue wasn't horrible, there was some suspense...though the ending was like the main body of the film...no substance.
Falling Skies (2011)
Should've called it..Falling Ratings
Okay, so Season 1 was quite good and some Season 2. There were a lot of things "borrowed" from other stories. The Puppetmasters by Robert Heinlein, some from V the series from the 1980's to name a couple. After Season 2 I lost interest but kept watching. Action, Sci-Fi, and Human tenacity.
The Mandalorian (2019)
Darn, I thought this was a series about John DeLorean.
So far the show is similar to most other "hero" shows...a man is betrayed by those he trusts etc etc, he goes on the run and while doing what he's doing, he takes the time to help various folks along the way.
Not the best, not the worst.
Not the worst
Except that Jennings was a thief. He stole in the name of others...why should he be rewarded? Also, something strange were some hidden Chinese characters at scene 1:33:01 to 1:33:05. Weird huh? (Look at Jennings hand). Another in a long line of Hollywood copies of short stories, poorly adapted.
Please Stand By (2017)
To the problems of broken homes and mental illness amongst our young. It reminded me of The Wizard from 1989...almost identical film other than the goal of the "protagonist".
