First Light

This Marvel show underwhelms. An oil rig done fall down. Andrea Roth and Gloria Ruben feature in this extremely tedious show. This has no emotional resonance. 2 kids maybe got powers as kids but didn't realise until years later. Blondie is a thief and a junkie. Her family lost everything after the oil rig. There are fraught issues. I feel an aversion to this. Generalisations and assumptions reign supreme. This was not fascinating.

There is emotional trauma and the duo don't use their powers assiduously. They're whiny teenagers. There is no fiat justitia ruat caelum. There is also no integrity, honesty, respect or commitment. This was dreary and lamentable. This was a series of miscalculations. She still does ballet? WTF is going on? Oh, I do not care.

Best Lines:

“Not in the ever.”

“Rich kid stuff.”

“Crazy white girl.”

Acme Chemicals

Gordon has thrilling righteousness. Bruce whines. Joker torments Bruce. Lee is snotty about Babs being pregnant, that's rich coming from a woman who shagged Riddler! Bruce has no haunted vulnerability. Joker blows up Wayne Manor. Tetch annoys. TPTB really force the Joker/Bruce thing. No, just no. Joker falls into a vat of chemcials and somehow is not dead. Why isn't he DEAD? Lee plays the victim – oh shut up bitch. Joker is comatose. This was okay.

Best Lines:

“You mean nothing to me.”

“Really silly hat.”

“Toxic waste warzone!”

Blaze Of Glory

Sisko needs Eddington to stop an old Maquis weapon. The Dominion have wiped out the Maquis. There's a Cal Hudson mention. Nog wants respect. There is bad acting and this bored. There is a twist.

Best Line:

“Attacking 2 Jem'Hadar soliders with a pipe? That's a brilliant plan!”

The H Word

I saw some of 'Jessica Jones' and 'Daredevil' and 'The Punisher' but never saw 'Iron Fist' or 'Luke Cage'. There is mumbling and Sigourney Weaver as the big bad. The opening credits are mmm. Jessica drinks. A pre-bad Trish harangnes Jessica. Luke was in jail?

There is phoney concern, Foggy Nelson being annoying and a collapse of decency. Luke gets out of jail. Matt grandstands. There are grievance politics. This was not brilliantly incisive. People babble about The Hand. A dying woman plots. This was regrettable and disappointhing. Why is Jessica's office trashed? Who is Malcolm? Jessica is awful. People have sex.

Misty lurks. Karen's a reporter now? Matt's given up on being a vigilante? Jessica is all belligerence and aggression. Matt's very Catholic. This was useless and idiotic. There are manifestations of tensions and offensive behaviour. People are given no respect. Something is festering. This causes dissatisfaction and disengagement. An earthquake strikes and Daredevil gurns.

Best Lines:

“This is my car.”

“Not anymore.”

“Not be quiet.”

“We spoke on the phone. A lot.”

“You were screaming. Again.”

“I think we have different understandings of the word fine.”

“The hero of Harlem.”

“It's just a city. You'll get used to watching them fall.”

Mean Right Hook

There is conspiracy talk about the earthquake. Trish does her talk radio show. Danny Rand bores. Jessica has primal anger and responds ever more combatively and acts detrimentally to her character. TPTB have blatant disregard for quality. Jessica does poor treatment of others and reponds aggressively to everything. Various people with emotional detachment and a sense of grievance lurk. Jessica bears grudges and resents being beholden to others. Matt breaks out his Daredevil suit. When did he get the fancy mask and ditch the scarf? This was chaotically wrong. Jessica investigates and Jeri lurks. Foggy judges. Lord, this bored.

Best Lines:

“We have allies.”

“Find a team to join?”

“Your knuckles speak volumes.”

“Pays well. Ends bad.”

Wild Bill (2019) 1x02

Rob Lowe stars as a US cop moved to the UK in this ITV drama. I missed 1x01. A homeless man plays piano. Rob Lowe is awful. This was awful and incoherent.

Best Lines:

“Rugby. That's just the NFL for fat guys.”

“Mad psycho bastard.”

“Murder vehicle.”

Butterfly 1x02

Everyone hates Stephen and Anna Friel whines. Max attention seeks again. This was terrifyingly bad. Anna Friel is called out on giving in to Max's demands. Anna Friel nags and whines and screams and ruins a friendship and her soap business. The sister is ignored. These people are awful attention seekers. How did Anna Friel get a visa to go to the USA and pay for it? She and Max run off to the USA ditching Stephen and the daughter. WTF?!?

Best Lines:

“Whatever he wants he gets.”

“Nothing's ever his fault!”

'Charles I: Downfall Of A King' promo


'Scream: Resurrection' promo

Is this a parody?

Gluten free spinach & Ricotta ravioli with tomato & roasted garlic sauce – yum.

Gluten free apple pie – nice.

Low fat peach & apricot yoguurt – nice.

I'll review 'The Snake' and 'Summer Of Night'.

In the old 'Diagnosis Murder' tv show, they did unsubtle backdoor pilots – none were picked up. However the most interesting failed backdoor pilot was the one for a show that would have been called 'The Chief'. It was set up in 'Retribution 1&2' in which Fred Dryer played a hardassed police chief and a truly frightening mob moss (named Ross Canin) turns out to be an undercover police officer who hates who he is pretending to be. That could have been interesting. Ahead of its time maybe? Also the cosy mystery 'Diagnosis Murder' is not really ready for Canin who pretty quickly becomes aggressive and is a complete and utter enemy to everyone and threatens to do something seriously violent to someone with a pool cue.

Scary Books

Movie Reviews: Patriot's Day + Brightburn + Amityville II - The Possession

Patriot's Day (2016)

This flop Peter Berg movie was about the 2013 Boston bombing. There is swearing, Boston accents, the cultural impact of the bombing, moral prejudice, an unnecessary character screaming and swearing and vengeful punishment is meted out to the baddies.

There is violence, gunfire, a guilty wife who gets away with it and the bombers engaged in hostile conduct. This had no compelling intensity but it does tell is that Boston is a resolute presence. This was sap and John Goodman, Rachel Brosnahan, Melissa Benoist of 'Supergirl', J.K Simmons of 'Counterpart', Kevin Bacon and Khandi Alexander featured in this.

Best Lines:

“Why are you bleeding?”

“The elites.”

“No takeback.”

“2 bathrooms in this place and one's broken.”

“Put some clothes on him!”

“Shot and run over.”

“Close to martial law.”

“Crying does not describe that kind of sound.”

“Radio discipline.”

“That boat ain't gonna float.”

Brightburn (2019)

A childless farm couple (who never do any farming) adopted a baby they found at the site of a 'meteor' crash. When the baby boy turns 12, he develops superpowers and starts murdering people and stalking a classmate who is a Lana Lang expy and talking about how superior he is. So he's Superman, but evil. This was merely medicore with a sequel hook set up by Michael Rooker.

Elizabeth Banks screams and this isn't as scary as it could have been. It features a harm doing child above human moral codes and laws. The movie takes the adage that a story should only reveal a fraction of its meaning, the rest should be submerged, implict, but its weight felt – literally.

This alien child obviously fails to protect and he can be construed as antagonistic and is a source of contention and dark connotations. Cue the panic of the community. This is a fearsome ideal. The brat destroys any semblance of rapport and displays societal aggression and values and codes of behaviour that are harbingers of evil. He has lively malice and dumb ass parents. As well as an evil Superman, the sequel hook hints at an evil Aquaman and evil Wonder Woman!

Best Lines:

“Inbred psychopath.”

“Take the world.”

Amityville II - The Possession (1982)

A prequel inspired by the infamous real life 1974 DeFeo murders that happened in the house. Diane Franklin of 'Deadly Lessons' co stars in this tale that has creepy music and a fog machine working on overdrive. Sadly this tale and the the fake Lutz haunting had nothing to do with the supernatural, but more to do with abuse. There is a mysterious room and bees and the house has ill intentions. For a short fat bloke the father is a crazy abusive nutter who terrorises his kin and likes to hit them with his belt.

The eldest son meances his father with a gun. Franklin screams and or flirts with said brother. We all know the brother will mass murder his family at some point. This was grim and dreadful. Burt Young goes all out as the vile father. The mother is always hysterical. This was sleazy. A priest is useless. The brother is obviously meant to be Ronald DeFeo Jr who is still in jail for killing his family. Franklin is meant to be Dawn DeFeo who has been defamed over the years by her murderous brother. The brother goes crazy with his gun one dark and stormy night. The aftermath of the murders drags. This was medicore.
