Gone Baby Gone

It may have something to do with me seeing all 400 episodes of SVU multiple times, but I expected this to be so much better. I never read the book, but It’s scary how much the girl they cast to play Amanda looked like little Madeleine McCann, especially since the film was released only a couple of months after her disappearance.

7.5/10

You Again

This film gets better each time I see it and that is 4 times already. Mostly the Jamie Lee vs Sigourney feud. I’m changing my rating from 2 stars to 3 stars, because it really is that good.

7/10

The Boys are Back

Once a month I come across these beautifully shot low budget Australian dramas that make my life so much fuller. They prove there’s so much beauty around to explore. What I love about them is how well Australian filmmakers play with light and warm colors. I also adore the slow pace of Aussie cinema. All those aspects show exactly what life here is like, a bit slower, definitely more peaceful and so much more beautiful.

7.5/10

Pirates of the Carribean 5: Dead Man Tell No Tales

Definitely better than the 4th one, yet still so far from the first three. For no good reason my favorite franchise ends with my favorite character learning he has a daughter and not long after… dying. Was that really necessary?

6/10

The Wicker Man

At first I didn’t care for it, but that ending certainly caught my attention. I need to see the original right away!

5/10

Serendipity

Definition of romantic comedies. Being a hopeless romantic and blindly believing in fate and luck.

5/10

The Last of Robin Hood

Oh please, I am so over the Lolita thing. Rape followed by statutory rape once again. Entitled men with little girl fetishes are fucking pigs and they should never be glorified.

4/10

Foxcatcher

I’m never into sports films, nor am I into male centred films with no tragic or strong female characters, but I’m glad I stuck till the end. It’s based on a true story and that tale has a quite shocking twist.

5/10

Monsters: Dark Continent

Remember the 2010 one? Beautiful post apocaliptic scenery (based in Mexico near the US border), only two characters, all made sense. Seeing it at the movies made it almost exceptional. I wasn’t sure what I was going into, but I came out satisfied. What was the point of moving Monsters to the Middle East? I mostly fast forwarded to the monster parts and other action scenes, because there is no other way to watch it. Absolutely pointless, don’t watch this one. If you’re into post apocaliptic horror without zombies (I know right? Awesome) watch Monsters from 2010.

That Netflix Renewal Problem

Tags

, ,

If you like a Netflix show or you feel you’d like it, you it’s crucial you watch the first two episodes the weekend the show comes out. Netflix checks statistics the following Monday. If you leave it for later, Netflix will take it as the show not being needed enough for people to drop everything and tune in. This is what happened to a few of Netflix shows, including the recent Girlboss.

Check out the new Naomi Watts Netflix series Gypsy. It’s another tv series Netflix has failed to advertise properly and it deserves your attention. I watched it all today and so good and addictive at the same time.

Greys 12.23

Brooke!? Jo’s name is Brooke?! Is Shonda running out of name ideas, does she not remember there was an intern called Heather Brooks?! Same as with Mer’s sister Maggie and Owen’s sister Megan. It’s the same name for crying out loud! I cried when Alex said his name was Alex Stevens, as in Izzie Stevens! And when Amelia spoke with Teddy! I was upset they didn’t show her, but Kim Raver is coming back! For an episode or 2, most likely the first 2 of the 14th season.

Mayor Hunt.
They said that she’s alive.
They found her in the basment.
Ask for Dr. Teddy Altman.
She said that she tried to call you.
Owen, Teddy knows her. Teddy saw her.
I went on with my life. For alost 10 years. I stoped looking, I gave up. I gave up on her.
He made me drive to the woods. He wanted to rape me.
Stephanie’s with him.
Because a rapist’s in the hospital.
I left her in the room with him.

SVU 18.17

We all felt sick when they attacked Liv and Amanda’s children.

I’m number 622 on the list. I didn’t get the perfect score.
Both are fatherless babies of unknown origin.
Arrest that son of a bitch who ran that thing.
He make us do the sex.
We come to America for work, not the sex.
What kind of jobs did they think they would get in America?
Nannies.

10/10

The Middle 8.22

Sue summed up this year, with exactly what we were thinking. The last two years were uneventful, and I miss the high school years every day. Remember when sue had no chill and couldn’t make anything of herself and she was always cheerful? Yes, those where the days.

This year I look back and it just feels like the year was kind of ‘Meh’.
Frankie, why are we getting HBO?
I wonder if we’re getting Hallmark movies!
Cindy just came back from her doctor, he believes she stopped growing!
The universe is confusing us with the Donaghues!
Whenever had 3 ggoo things happened to us on one day?
Or one?
My name is Sue Heck, class of 2015.
Sorry humiliation, you’ve been postponed to a later date.

7/10

Scandal 6.13

I really wished Scandal would go all Seven on us and deliver someone’s head, but they opted out last minute. The box plot was intriguing nonetheless. 

Drones. 9 drones.
There’s been an explosion in Dallas.
35 Americans dead.
Sir, the drones are moving.
The Philadephia drone detonated.
I don’t get it, is the box empty?
A brick Why woud Payes send my father a brick?
It’s the weight. Every box weighed 11 Ibs.
And your sex Scandal.
No one has ever broken you.
A severed head weighes from 9lbs to 11 lbs.
That head would be Olivia’s.
I could speak 8 languages.
Olivia is what you’re best at. She’s your republic. She’s your legacy.

10/10

Nashville 5.14

Let’s be honest Nashville post Rayna is no good.I’m happy when they sing, but the storylines are predictable and lack essence. This week, there I was thinking Maddie has actually made it and they went with the obvious storyline of everyone wanting to know how will she fit into her mother’s shoes.

I don’t want  to be stuck behind Miranda and Carrie and Kelsey I need a hit!
She’s back!
Bucky, thank you for everything.
They’re playing my song on the radio!!
That’s the best we can do?!
And we’ve never even had sex.

Greys 13.22

Meredith giving away the tumor Derek drew for her so she can fuck her boyfriend in peace is appaling, and I like those two together. Parents don’t want their kid to have surgery because of their strong faith in God. Stephanie gets suspended for throwing a tablet at the dad.

As someone who’s been around a lot of death and been left behind by it, I can tell you, trust me, you don’t want that.
You can go to jail again.
I can go to jail for this.
Don’t let it hold you back. No more sitting here and waiting. Grab your new life by the hand and go out there and live it. Change is good.

8.5/10

The Goldbergs 4.23

Is it Jane Fonda?
It’s from Gremlins.

6/10

Nashville 5.13

How did Deacon not think Maddie self harmed?! All the freaking songs this episode! Absolutely spectacular! Maddie’s reendition of the Daria theme! Avery’s song ! And the Exes too! The homeless girl crying at the photo of Rayna with her Deacon and the girls!

I feel so alone,  keep heading home!
Or the foster drunks who never understood no means no.
Cause you’re coming home with me.
I love you even when I don’t.
Where’s your real dad?
In jail.
What about your mom?
She died.
Do you mind me asking how old are you?
15.
You can stay.
I’ll be fine.
Just know I’ll be there.
I’m on my way.

6.5/10

Riverdale 1.12

This is the episode where Madchen reinvented herself! She was absolutely fabulous in it! I am ready for Twin Peaks return. Shelly was my favorite in the original one. The scene where theCoopers walzed in was my second favorite this season.

I’m a Blossom?!
Which makes her and Jason relatives by blood.
Don’t bother calling the cops, we’re not staying.
Sorry to disturb the witching hourat Thornehill.
She chose to live here remember, with the mentally stable family.
Oh I know all about your family, Penelope and the incest.
Nothing could be more purely Blossom than those babies.
Enough of this Dr Moreau experimentation in breeding and eugenics! It’s over!
There it is. Maybe syrup. Drown in it, why don’t you!
Nancy Drew strikes again.
You did a bad thing daddy, and now everyone knows.
And then the unthinkable happened.

10/10

Pretty Little Liars 7.14

Lucas is definitely A.D. He has always been a stalker, and I have been suspicious of him since season two or something. The song Devil Devil by Milck is so freaking good.

Luke, Lucas maybe.
You know him?
You’re sitting on his couch.
I remember the procedure.
I want to cancel my appointment.
No one can know how ciolated and used you must feel.
It’s supposed to kand on Aria!

10/10

Pretty Little Liars 7.18

It pissed me off when Hanna said ‘Childhood’ teddy bear, that’s why I hate season 7 so much, they all think they’re so grown up and shit. How many times do I have to say this! Alison is not gay and never will be!

I think she’s on the A.D. team.
I just received proof that yu were not in town at the time of the murder.
I’ll tell you what we should do.
Why didn’t we do that earlier?
I hope you enjoyed the game, Aria. I know I have.
It’s Mona, signal is coming from inside the apartment.

4/10

Girlboss 1.01

Crying because of work, relatable. The thing she did where she lied to the person on the phone saying there was an ambulance passing by, so she could cry was incredible. So was the scene where she tried to push her car up the road on a gorgeous San Francisco street? Incredible! I just realizedthis year we got 3 shows based in San Francisco, Girlboss, When We Rise and Fuller House of course.

How old are you?
23.
Did I eat her sandwich? Yeah.
Can you hold on a second, there’s an ambulance next to me.
Bring on adulthood, motherfucker.

6.5/10

Hollywood Darlings 1.04

Who the fuck complained?!
I’ve been around the block enough to know when someone’s about to fuck me up.

Why the hell did they think it’s appropriate for Lily to have a bra at 9 years old?

A Perfect Getaway

Absolutely perfect, breathtaking views and it takes an interesting turn.

7/10

About A Girl

The person who wrote this clearly watched Easy A and Mean Girls, yet About A Girl adds what those two are missing, depth. Also, didn’t the failed suicide remind you of the one Jenna accidentally encountered on Awkward?

8/10

Any Day Now

How was this not a hit? What a beautiful film and an exceptionally tragic story. Thank you Netflix, this is the best film I’ve seen this year.

Mystic Pizza

One of the charming, small town, coming of age films for women. Just what I needed!

8/10

Normal

Before Transparent and Transamerica, there was Normal. It may not cover as many trans issues and it’s more of a ‘how to love a trans person and accept their change’ but it has a lovely and warm take on it. I recommend it, even if it’s just for Jessica Lange and the scene where she walks out of the church after her trans husband is asked to leave.

6.5/10

Edge of Seventeen

Let me get this straight, so ‘Edge of Seventeen’ the genius song by Stevie Nicks hasn’t played once?! Not even the Lindsay Lohan version? This is how uneventful this film is.

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Everyone who managed to watch this uninspired movie till the end will certainly forever be haunted by the suicide attempt scene, considering it was filmed just a few months before Robin took his own life.

2/10

Annie

That helicopter ride over New York made it all worth it. Signing and acting much worse than the 1982 version I’ve seen. They clearly couldn’t choose between a phone empire or mayoral candidacy so hey let’s make it ridiculous and do both. Even though I went into the film sceptical, the musical really did need its modern version, even if both the script and cast had failed.

3.5/10

Horrid Henry: The Movie

Henry from the books and animated series would never approve. I’ve never read the book, but thanks to Netflix I’ve seen the TV show and it’s one of the best things that came out of Great Britain. It’s extremely realistic for a children’s tv series and it shows you UK life as it is. I have only watched one season last year, and I have been too busy with work, but I’ll definitely catch up on in the summer. When it comes to this film, I thought they made two very good casting decisions, Henry’s mom and Henry’s little brother, they looked and behaved almost exactly as their animated versions. I have just checked Netflix and apparently last Spring I have finished at episode 1.22. I am excited for the 3 seasons ahead, especially since each one has 52 episodes. Can we also acknowledge the fact that no American person would use the word ‘horrid’ to describe someone or even use in a sentence and here it’s flying around 6 times an episode. I have actually witnessed that, living in the UK as long as I have. Anyway, amazing series, horrid film. There, I used the word.

Greys 13.19

That opening dialague between Mer and Amelia was a great start. Cross catched abdominal tuberculosis, while visiting India. Can we just appreciate the fact that Arizona said Grey is hot, using those words exactly? I was not happywith her almost scaring Nathan off calling Merder the great love story, that may have something to do with me never liking Derek in the first place.

I go al little dark and twisty, but then I come back.
Please don’t refer to your neice as my secret baby.
Before anything terrible happens.
Like watching your father get murdered when you’re five.
Or like watching your mother bleed out on the kitchen floor.
We’re more alike than we realize.
Cross, you can’t sleep here.
Cross, roll over baby.
I have operated through a miscarriage.
That’s not normal.
Let’s slay the monster then.
Come on, Maggie, move.
She needs a little time to adjust.
Oh and India for a month. No one noticed?
Your face twitched at Grey.
She’s hot.
They were the great love story. That girl’s heart beat for Derek Shepherd.

It’s less stupid than eating pretend food.
Your mother suffered.
That’s why you created me when you were little.
Oh mother, what have I done.

I don’t think you’re healthy, Norman.
Did she kill herself?

Switched at Birth 5.10

You being back home, making photography, it’s just like the old days.
But you’re deaf.
Surgeons wear masks. You can’t be deaf and a surgeon.
You changed my life.
You came here 15 years too late.
I think that’s what I wanna do, advocate for kids.
And I’ll get to say, I knew him, he was my first love.
I’m sorry for all the times I’ve missed.
This has been an amazing 5 years.
I guess we’re all just really lucky.

American Crime 3.08

An episode that turned out to be the show’s last. I didn’t think for once that Lily Taylor’s character could be an abusive person. This reveal shocked me and sort of recompensated for how average this show was. I absolutely adored when she told her husband to take care of the son, he clearly doesn’t love, while she’s gone.

Her name was Shae.
Was she pregnant?
Where did this happen?
Her son arrived here a few days ago.
He showed us letters.
Women were assaulted.
She’s a homicide victim it’ll take a while.
Fuck you, seriously go fuck yourself.
I will be going to jail for two years.
He’s your son even if you don’t love him, you have to take care of him.

Who’s banging on the door.

The Girl who accidentally had her phone on flight mode for most of The Girl who accidentally had her phone on flight mode for most of 9th grade.
Jenna Marshall.
Just write initials A D.
Namaste, bitch.
Caleb’s in the hospital.
Stay back, I said stay back.

The leftovers 3.01

The opening scene where Ivy gets killed by a drone was definitely shocking.

They were targeted by a military drone.
He was only thinking about one thing, escaping so that’s what he did. He escaped.
You never tell someone who is experiencing a delusion, they are delusional.
