The Bear

Re: The Bear

I have not read through the posts commenting on Season 3, since I want to avoid spoilers, but I'm halfway through it now and it feels narratively inert to me. I don't see the stories moving the plot...

I appreciate your passion on this, and thanks for contributing, but before you express a legal opinion on the appropriateness of the length of the sentencing, you should verify that you know what you...

Baldwin's "Rust" Trial Dismissed

Re: Baldwin's "Rust" Trial Dismissed

I think we have an earlier thread on this topic. I agree that this is surprising, but I do think he had a very low probability of being convicted. I think I predicted that he would not be convicted...

Tokyo Vice (HBO Max)

Re: Tokyo Vice (HBO Max)

I liked this show. It was entertaining, but I kind of understand why HBO decided not to renew the series for season 3, even though the creators wanted to continue the show and are still hoping to do...

Re: Horizon: An American Saga - Chapter 1

It doesn't seem clear whether they are merely seeking to postpone the release and will still be releasing Part II in theaters. Or, alternatively, whether they are now planning to cancel the theater...

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F

Re: Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F

I saw this and found it to be quite disappointing. In some cases, they seemed to be copying aspects of the first two films in ways which were quite obvious. I did enjoy the use of the score from the...

Re: House MD

"House MD" is one of my favorite shows and one of the best medical shows on TV, in my opinion.

Re: Donald Sutherland has passed away.

Holden Pike, I'm wondering what your top performances are for Donald Sutherland. Also, like some here, I find it surprising that he has never been nominated for an acting Oscar, but I know that in...

Re: What are your top three re-watchable tv series?

It's rare that I make it a goal to rewatch series that I've seen before. I'd second Yoda's recommendation on comedies. If I see "Frasier", "Everybody Loves Raymond", or "The King of Queens" on TV, I...

Amanda Knox limited series starring Grace Van Patten (Hulu)

Re: Amanda Knox limited series starring Grace Van Patten (Hulu)

Yeah, I saw Margaret Qualley in "Maid" and she was very good and had quite a presence to her that I think would have enabled her to portray this character well. I've never even heard of Grace Van...

Re: Slow Horses

I definitely like this show and find it to be entertaining, but it's probably the least realistic show within its genre that I've ever seen. There is no way that this team of actual screw ups, who...

I think it emotionally works for the show and I'm happy for the character, but her getting the late night gig she's been striving for her whole career is incredibly unrealistic. There is no way that...

Re: Hacks

I think this show is a good example of an actress, Jean Smart, really having her moment. I've seen her in many other things over the years, and before "Hacks", she never made much of an impression on...

‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

Re: ‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

I think it's really important to nail down an answer to Yoda's question. Are many here arguing the concept of self-indulgence does not exist, or that it exists but is universal as a necessary feature...

Re: ‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

The potential problems with self-indulgence go much deeper than impacting the financial bottom line. It's about making a movie to please yourself rather than to make an entertaining film that your...

Re: ‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

I think overall this is correct. How successful a movie is is about a lot more than its length, and well constructed movies that are longer may be appropriate to the story and work well. I think this...

Re: ‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

This may be a situation where different people just have different preferences, and I may be a little out of step with the consensus based on the poll. For me, most 90 minute movies feel too short...

Re: ‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

While I do agree that some movies are becoming too long, in my opinion, this poll is wrong. An hour and a half is not enough time to fully develop many stories, unless they are very basic ones. If...

Re: Curb Your Enthusiasm

It sounds like we don't really have many people who saw both finales and didn't like the "Seinfeld" finale, but did like this one, so it's still not clear to me why the reception of this has been so...

Re: The Movie Critic: Tarantino's next (last?) film about Pauline Kael

According to Deadline, this film has been dropped as his next and final film and he is going to be looking for a new project. This is a pretty surprising turn of events.
