Words can't express how excited I am for this. Bring on October.
Absolutely loved this show and it is so sad to see it wrap up after only 3 Seasons. I am, however, glad that the episodes were lengthy and full of content (not just "filler") through the length of the series.
Unfortunately I am not one to follow current events as much as I should, however this gave me insight and a fresh perspective on what is (was) "going on" in the world.
Daniels had brilliant performances and I loved the complexity he brought to Will. Would love to see him in another strong role very soon.
Nice work Sorkin. Awesome work.
A strong first season. I am really enjoying the ensemble... a well balanced cast with a hint of ridiculousness. The plot turns can be outlandish, but it sets it apart.
It's hard not to compare to Betas (interesting how they both started at similar times and both deal with competitive launch dates/apps) but I feel the craziness of Silicon Valley (particularly in Erlich, Peter Gregory and Jared) keeps me choosing this over that.
This show is addictive and I simply can't get enough. Sure, it would probably be considered a guilty pleasure, but the acting is fantastic.
Asher Keddie is perfectly neurotic as Nina Proudman. Her depth, strength of character and the way she represents every awkward, insecure and clumsy woman on the planet, is beautiful. She dives into her character and it's seamless.
Unfortunately the network that airs this show ruins the plot before the episode airs (much too revealing advertisements!), but somehow Offspring still manages to lead me into emotional rollercoasters and fits of laughter.
I love this show. I hope you enjoy it's ridiculous moments too.
I enjoyed this much more than I was expecting. Sudekis is up there with my favourite SNL cast members and he didn't disappoint.
Jen was... just... wipes drool. She's great with comedy and I really enjoyed seeing her working with Jason (previously in Horrible Bosses together).
Easy and enjoyable to watch. Throw it on next time you're in the mood to laugh mindlessly.
ps - watch the outtakes... certainly worth it.
Seasons 1-3 were brilliant. Season 4 wasn't the train wreck I was expecting. I felt it was a bit scattered at times but managed to find its way to something reasonably watchable. Season 5 had a good beginning, however it absolutely fell apart during the last 3-5 episodes. The saddest part was that I was literally crying with laughter Seasons 1-3, yet I didn't let out a peep during the final 3 episodes.
Ah well. I will remember it for what it truly was - awesome, funny and ridiculous.
Such a shame as this show had quite a lot of potential. I'm a huge fan of Simon and I feel he is better than this. Got through 2 episodes and couldn't maintain.
Quite possibly my favourite comedy. I have seen this more than a dozen times and yet, it simply doesn't get old.
Mmmm yessss well... I'm going to need you to watch this ok? That'd be greeeat.
Frozen is a visual masterpiece which left me in a state of awe and wonder. That Disney Magic is present throughout the entire film and I feel they have finally gotten back to their roots - really championing the musical and theatricality of their films.
Idina Menzel and Kristin Bell absolutely shone (I had no idea Kristin could sing). The soundtrack I found was very reminiscent of Wicked (couldn't stop thinking of Defying Gravity during Let It Go). It is no surprise that this animated musical has been confirmed to be made into a Broadway Show.
They are guessing due to how long it took for The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast to hit the stage, we are looking at a four year turn around. I personally think they will ride the popularity train and push it to stage as quick as possible. The score seems like it is pretty much done and written for the stage (listen to the out-take songs on the deluxe extended soundtrack - lots of focus on Anna and Elsa as children).
Considering the choices (aesthetically) for the voices of Anna (Kristin), Elsa (Idina), I believe it is highly likely the ladies could play the same characters on stage.
I have really enjoyed adding Frozen to my Idina Menzel collection of soundtracks (I love Rent and Wicked) and will continue to bask myself in the power of Let It Go - each and every morning.
It's been quite some time since I have been so moved by a film and this has certainly swelled my heart into a big Mickey Mouse shaped balloon. I find it hard to put into words exactly how I feel, but I know I am full of joy, sorrow and wonder. Tom Hanks was perfectly cast and he brings his own magic to Walt's twinkling presence. Thompson's performance was nothing short of perfect in every single way. She moved me to tears, she filled me with laughter and she had me at attention the entire film.
I love this film and will return for the emotional ride again and again.
I cannot believe I have only just gotten into this show. You can see this was an inspiration for many shows to follow. Love it and will drag out the episodes as long as I can.
Early in and I am enjoying the show. The support characters don't have much depth yet, but I'm patient. To me, it's a fun mix of Spin City, Ally McBeal and House of Lies, with the playful antics of Robin shimmying around, holding it all together. I don't see much of an ongoing plot forming, but I don't mind. I turn into a child watching Robin work and sometimes it's nice to switch the brain off and be entertained.
I have read a fair bit of literature on the actual crimes and I found the movie an interesting study on the Bling Ring's personalities. If you look into the crimes, personalities and lives of these subjects, you'll see that quite a lot of what played out was true. Including the outrageous characterisations of each individual.
Yes, the "plot" and characters seemed thin and little explanation was given. However if you know the backstory, you would understand that there was little reason why they actually committed these offences. They were bored with their lives, had a history of rebellious behavior and discovered just how easy it was to take what they want without getting caught. So they did it. Simple. Some kids take some coins out of their parent's loose change jar, for the Bling Ring, they just... upsized.
However taking it all with a grain of salt, I understand that the media and books I would have read would be biased towards the writer's point of view... like anything ever written. So without actually being with them during the crimes, one wouldn't actually know what really happened. I do however believe that the film was a good collaboration of information from the many articles and books published.
Being a Sofia Coppola film, glamour and fabulous lifestyle was a huge part of the film. This I think was misread by viewers as a misguided form of romanticising the harsh reality of what happened. I believe the film was constructed to show the audience how the Bling Ring thought the entire operation was glamorous and fame-worthy.
It would seem, the media fueled their wanton desire for the subjects to be part of the elite and pandered to their whims. The crimes independently were nothing of note to the average Joe... however the paparazzi and media jumped on the celebrity bandwagon and enabled the subjects to feel entitled and praised. And now I seem to be touching on the subjects from Nancy Sales' book... I digress.
In summary, I believe the movie was a well executed and constructed representation of what was reported to have happened (as per media and books). The style was chosen to help the audience understand the subjects' nativity and ignorance... and overwhelming desire to be part of the ëlite". Looking at the film for what it was, I enjoyed the ride.
A guilty pleasure. I love Bullock in this naive role. Her fiery and curious nature is reminiscent of a teenager's need to rebel and explore.
Sly is adorably awkward and Snipes pulls off overalls like no other. 90's cheesy action films have a cult following and I am proud to be a member.
Such beautiful animation and heart warming story. I wish I had seen this earlier. Now I'm on the hunt for a big Totoro for my very own.
My first introduction to MJ was this movie, over 20 years ago. A dodgy Beta recording off the TV was my parent's sure fire way to keep this toddler occupied for an hour and a half. Since then I have collected the DVD, Blu Ray, SEGA Megadrive Game, Novel and Album.
This movie is an invincible mash up of music video, kids adventure flick, sci-fi, animation and absolute feast for the eyes. Spine tingly, tear provoking moment with MJ as a child singing Ben on the Ed Sullivan Show, is no less than perfect.
Michael's music flows through my body, intertwined with my very being. His music and showmanship shaped my childhood and teenage years. He was my inspiration and will forever have an impact on my interest in music and dancing.
To say that I love this movie is an understatement. I very recently immortalised my passion for two gloved "M" entertainers in one incredible tattoo. I wear it loud and proud on my calf - just in time for the Australian leg of Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson.
If you've forgotten what it feels like to be a kid again and experience wonder or if you have simply forgotten the magic that made Michael a superstar, I would recommend you immerse yourself in this film.
I have never been more excited to see a film. Bringing Walt to life is a silver screen dream come true. Looking forward to seeing Hanks in this wonderful role.
This is such a fantastic show, I am dragging out the episodes so I can enjoy each in its own glory.
Simon is wonderfully entertaining and adorable all at once. As usual, I want him all to myself.
So lovely you thought of me :-)
I was very lucky to see this on the Silver Screen before Wreck It Ralph.
Simple, elegant and absolutely beautiful piece of art.
This, along with the husband/wife scene in Up, are my favourites.
Thank you for sharing this with me so I can enjoy it all over again :)
This little gem reminds me of a mix between White Collar and House. Similar formula as a House episode - Issue, False-Solve, Conflict and finally Resolution laced with sarcasm and ego.... all with the suave and debonair style of White Collar. Highly entertaining.
Strong cast, great premise and perfect setup for The Avengers. The SFX weren't what they could have been but it didn't take anything away from the film. Thoroughly entertaining.
After just watching episode 1, I find this show raw, believable and beautifully charming. One of the few pilots I've seen that has piqued my interest enough to really want more. Looking forward to watching the rest of the series.
Beautifully imperfect. Disney is evolving and the effects are simply wonderful. I love everything about Merida - from her rough, take no prisoners personality, to her desperately wild hair. A must see for children and adults alike.
Outstanding. Managed to see this on the Silverscreen - very lucky!
Unknown had so much potential and big shoes to fill with a predecessor like Bourne, but sadly it fell short. Not Neeson's best role but he seemed to do what he could with what was created.
Reminds me of when Alvin and the Chipmunks were a cartoon and not a 3D "creation".... Ah the 80's nostalgia. Can't say I'm the biggest fan of this film but I understand it had its place at the time.
Growing up, Paris was a favourite of mine. I enjoyed his youth, boyish charm and natural cheek. Now as a woman, I find myself quite taken with Chakotay. Rewatching Voyager feels like home. Love it.
Absolutely loved this show but season 6-7 was such a disappointment. Cheap/cop out subplots and a complete sense of detachment has left me with little satisfaction.
A golden opportunity was created at the end of Season 6 to really develop Shane's personality and all the Dexter-esque delights that could unfold in Season 7. However sadly this little gem wasn't taken advantage of and the writers missed out on reclaiming its edgy nature.
Dushku is smoking hot as always. Forever a favourite.
I wasn't expecting anything good from this film, and rightly so. Parodies are an art and it takes more than just a regurgitation of the script, costumes and sets to pull one off.The only impressive element was the impersonation of Seth Rogan. The looks and mannerisms weren’t there but if I closed my eyes, I could swear it was Rogan speaking.After 20 minutes of struggle and cringing, I happily switched the film off and deleted it off my hard drive. Weak, watery, pretentious sauce.
