|65 64%||World War II in Colour (2009) - Jan 06, 2020
"It's very stripped-down and bare-boned but the subject matter is still very compelling and the colorization is fine. I'm sure there are better WWII documentaries but this is still worth watching."
|40 40%||The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (2015) - Nov 30, 2019
"Colbert is best late show host that has been hired by a major network in a long, long time but he started awkward for the first couple years and than was saved by Donald Trump getting elected. The first year to year-and-a-half were undoubtedly funny but I just can't take another Donald Trump-related joke. Yes, Trump's never-ending antics are worthy of scorn but I can't take another retelling of the same 4 jokes which make up Colbert's take-down of the Trump White House, it got old long ago."
|20 16%||The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (2014) - Nov 30, 2019
"Jimmy Fallon is everything a late night talk show host shouldn't be: droll, boring, painfully not funny, and worst of all: safe. I understand why he keeps the job because he will never offend anyone but I am not a television producer so I don't care: I want to be offended by a comedian once in a while, that's how I know they are a good comedian and their material has real value to society at large. Jimmy Fallon is a parasite leaching off pop culture."
|62 61%||The Eric André Show (2012) - Nov 30, 2019
"Eric Andre's deliberate attempts to deconstruct and lampoon everything about the idea of late night talk shows and talk show hosts will be off putting to some but he is undoubtedly funny and carries the lesser bits with enough confidence to make them worthwhile."
|55 55%||The Mandalorian (2019) - Nov 29, 2019
"I've ever been so conflicted on a TV show before. On one hand, this remains the best thing Disney has produced with the name Star Wars but the script goes from being formulaic at best to disastrous at worst. I like the characters for the most part and it is extremely well-produced, looking far better than most of the Disney films. I'm not yet sure if this is another soulless corporate product or if there are real artists involved. I'm interested to see where it goes unlike the Disney films."
|86 89%||Frankenstein (1931) - Oct 27, 2019
"Of these early monster movies, this is the best. Frankenstein has some great effects, sets, acting, and a great story. It doesn't include all the intricacies of the novel but what is here is occasionally harrowing and the simplicity of the monster works in a short picture. This has stuck with me more than than all but the best horror pictures since."
|69 68%||The Invisible Man (1933) - Oct 27, 2019
"A very good early monster movie that is surprisingly excellent in the special effects department. Rains, despite mostly being a voice, is excellent in the role. It's a little bit lacking in substance like many other monster movies but it is still quite entertaining."
|26 24%||Event Horizon (1997) - Oct 24, 2019
"This is a movie that I would love to see remade. There are more than a few interesting ideas here but Paul W. S. Anderson is a woefully inept director whose interpretation of this script goes from being boring to laughable by the end. In the hands of an even halfway competent director this could be horror gold."
|89 91%||Rosemary's Baby (1968) - Oct 20, 2019
"The very slow tension built throughout doesn't always pay off but this is considered by many to be a classic for a reason. Somehow it only seems more poignant in the aftermath of the #MeToo movement where a vulnerable young woman is drugged and raped and everyone around her is gas-lighting her into thinking everything is fine. Wait... Roman Polanski made this?"
|71 70%||The Boys (2019) - Sep 20, 2019
"The Boys ins't a fully realized show yet but it's combination of satire, cynicism, gleeful violence, and dark humor are a winning combination that has me wanting more."
