Quotes of the Day

‘The Simpsons’ Quote:
“There’s a lot of fish in the sea but she picked out a drunken walrus.”

‘Turn Coat’ Quotes:
“The last thing I needed was for old Mrs Spunkelcrief, my near-deaf landlady, to start asking why my door looked like it had been shot a dozen times. I mean, I could always tell her, ‘because it has’, but that isn’t the sort of conversation one has with one’s landlady if one wants to keep one’s home.”

“Their reactions start with beheadings, and become progressively less tolerant.”

Movie Review: Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy (2010)

Dwayne Johnson is a tooth fairy! Ashley Judd of ‘Missing’ is in this somewhere. This is a terrible movie up there with ‘When Time Ran Out’ in the crap stakes.

Nikita 2x07 + Missing 1x06 Reviewed


The goob Ryan Fletcher is in jail and figures out some of Oversight’s secrets by staring a newspaper clippings because he is just that special. Michael wants to see his son and is annoyed with Nikita.

Alex hides from Gogol who wouldn’t be after her if she hadn’t smugly shot that executive because she was in a pissy mood. The hair product Sean hangs out with Alex. This season I feel as if TPTB are treating the audience with contempt. I don’t have time for Alex’s crises.

Roan shows up. Sean is not a sage confidante, he is a blight and his mommy is on Oversight. Yawn. This ep was weak. Sean glowers, a death lacks any emotional ante, Russians speak English to each other, Michael is shot again and there is a ‘twist’. For notorious hard cases, Michael and Nikita are a bit dim.

Best Lines:
“Your value is that you don’t exist.”

“Fletcher won’t be a problem. Accidents happen all the time in prison.”

“Evil corporations ain’t what they used to be.”

“I give you those names I’m a dead man.”
“Works for me.”

A Busy Solitude

Becca is annoying and arrogant. Her stupid street punk son and his galpal do boring crap. Paul does stuff. There is a too convenient ‘accident’ that everyone ignores. There is smuggling and Becca is awesome in her selfishness.

There’s a mole in the CIA. Dax is a jackass, his boss is rude and everyone is stupid. There are endless flashbacks. This bored. Rebecca overflows with contempt but no shame.

Book Review: Gone Girl

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

From the author of the excretable ‘Dark Places’ comes this excellent tale of a missing wife, her jerk husband and a disturbing account of a toxic marriage. Amy goes missing and her husband Nick could care less. He resents his wife and her diary entries paint a picture of an unhappy woman trying to please an unpleasable husband.

A troubled marriage and the dark deceptions of domesticity are dissected. What has happened to Amy? What caused the breakdown of her and Nick’s once happy marriage? This is an excellent dark story with a double twist ending.

Best Lines:
“People will think we’re ironic instead of creatively bankrupt.”

“If I saw her on the street, I’d run the other way."
