Review – The Hangover

Let's sit around and act annoying to pandas

A group of four guys head to Vegas with the intent to go wild before one of them gets married. 1 is whipped, 1 is the wife’s brother, 1 is getting married and the other guy is the token “cute” one. They wake up and can’t remember what happened, why their villa is a mess, why there is a tiger in their apartment and where their friend who is getting married actually is. Over the course of the movie they work their way backwards through their night in Vegas.

What am I doing, you all know the story.

Pluses:
The photos in the credits.

Minuses:
The rest.

OMG I can’t believe people recommended this to me. It was better than Hot Tub Time Machine (which isn’t saying much), but I had numerous tweets telling me I should watch it because it was just so crazy funny/awesome etc. I have decided that my sense of humour is so off the wall that I just don’t get main stream Hollywood humour any more. I didn’t laugh once. Maybe if I was drunk and in a full cinema but I certainly wouldn’t wish this film on anyone, and there is going to be a sequel? I really didn’t find it funny at all. From stereotypes to overacting this movie was as unfunny as Schindlers List – though at least Spielberg wasn’t going for laughs.

Review – Stargate Universe – Cloverdale

You'd faint too if you had to deliver this dialogue.

This week:
Characters I don’t like are main players in stories told multiple times already in the Stargate franchise, only with the subtle retelling of a hammer on a date with an egg.

Pluses:
The arrangement at the end of the ep was ok, at least it wasn’t woefully depressing.
Mildly interesting outcome though entirely predictable from the first few moments of the ep.

Minuses:
Standalone ep in a series whose arc has stalled.
No minor character development.
Yet another hallucination story.
Colonel Young worst leader ever or worst leader ever?
Stupid portrayal of women yet again.
No Lucian Alliance.
No new tech.
No real threat (like the main character is going to die…).
Didn’t realise how unattractive most of the cast were – dim lighting is quite flattering.

I am creating a whole new rating for this one – graphic will come over the weekend when I have time.

Review – Caprica – Things We Lock Away

A massacre in a massacre in a massacre

This week:
Hostage. Euthanasia. Cleaning. Manipulation. Battle for mind and heart.

Pluses:
Vergis telling Greystone he didn’t have the stones.
Vergis winning.

Minuses:
No Adama family development.
Lucy’s arc (yawn).
Pretty much the whole episode.

I was quite excited when this ep opened, as it seemed like we were going to do a New Cap City centric ep. We did, but it wasn’t the storyline I was hoping for – I don’t know what I wanted, but two 45kg girls trying to fight and then deciding to braid each other’s hair sure as frak wasn’t it.

Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep (Fringe) was a much better attempt at understanding what is it that makes someone ‘human.’ The whole hallucinating avatar was frustrating and the battle scene annoying on multiple levels. There were some moments throughout the duration of the ep when I thought YES – but nothing happened. I should check who wrote it – cause it was unstructured, out of character and lacking in depth. One twitterer in my stream asked me if Avatar Zoe had created her own Avatar Zoe. Yes, the writing was that messy.

Incase you missed it – there is a new BSG spinoff. I get what they were trying to achieve, but think they failed miserably – are they trying to get cancelled? With eps like TWLB, the writing isn’t just on the wall for Caprica, the grave is being dug.

I am not a Gleek, and I certainly don’t get this.

Have you seen the new GQ?

Wrong on so many levels.

Why are the girls wearing undies, posing provocatively, yet the young guy is clothed?

Double standards?

I am not one to stand on the Objectification of Young Women, or the over sexualising of youth, but in this case, I am standing up and saying “Not cool Glee – but then you stopped being cool after about 4 episodes.”

Review – Hellcats – The Prisoner’s Song

The Last Cheer!

This week:
People I don’t care about fight about people and things I don’t care about and try to save people and things I don’t care about.

Pluses:
I don’t have to watch it again.

Minuses:
I waited 4 episodes.

Review – Smallville – The Shield

So Daniel Jackson, erm, I mean Carter Hall...

This week:
I don’t know where to start… Nothing happened. At all. Oh I tell a lie – the Super Heros got “marked” and we meet “Shield.”

Pluses:
It was kinda funny to see Michael Shanks playing an archeologist in Egypt.

Minuses:
Did I mention nothing happened?
Ridiculous end shot.

I want that 40 mins of my life back, preferable replaced by a good episode of Smallville.

The Event – Premier Episode

We all take oursevles very seriously

“I haven’t told you everything”
Yeah the show is crap.
All these people, seemingly unrelated actually are.
There is this undisclosed Event.
The Event isn’t in the pilot.
Things happen and you jump forward and back in time.
Minuses:
Blair Underwood.
Stupid premise.
No character development.
Too much of nothing happening.
Tries way too hard
Pluses:
The last 5 minutes.
This year’s Flash Forward – let someone else watch it till it gets cancelled and tell you what happened.
