Star Trek: Discovery: Special 3 Calypso

A waste of time. Boring. No connection to current characters. Not even a bit compelling.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

This movie has some gorgeous visuals. And the design of the various alien species was great.

The action was pretty good, but nothing particularly special.

The storyline was derivative and unimaginative. If you've seen Avatar or Dances with Wolves, you already know the story. Story-wise, it was pretty boring.

And none of the characters were likable, especially the main characters. I spent most of the movie waiting for someone to punch Valerian in the face. The Na'vi Pearls were sympathetic, but incredibly boring.

All in all, not really worth the time.

Umm, what? So, did they die?

black-ish: 4x04 Advance to Go (Collect $200)

Just like the game Monopoly, this episode about a game of Monopoly was just plain boring.

Star Trek: Discovery: 1x07 Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad

This episode finally felt like a real episode of Star Trek. There wasn't a lot of internal conflict. This episode showed us the crew of Discovery working together against a common foe. Up until now, most of the episodes have focused on a lot of in-fighting.

Star Trek is supposed to be about a hopeful future for humanity: a time when we work with each other, despite our differences.

It's a shame that they had to rip off a class Next Generation episode before it finally felt like Star Trek.

The Simpsons: 29x01 The Serfsons

Wow. That was a really dumb episode.

12 Angry Men

Definitely one of my top five favorite movies of all time. I could never get tired of it.

The story really shows the beauty of the American judicial system, and the importance of a trial by jury, in particular, the gravity of a juror's duty.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

This wasn't a terrible Batman/Superman movie, but it wasn't great, either.

In particular, Jesse Eisenberg was a terrible pick for Lex Luthor. He played it exactly the same as he played Mark Zuckerberg. It really was basically the same character.

Phone Booth

If you were trying to make the most boring moving, you might come up with the premise: "Let's put the entire movie in a phonebooth."

Naruto Shippuden

To the people complaining about this series not staying up-to-date.

It's not Trakt's fault. They get their data from tvdb, which is a user-editable television database. Naruto's page is at http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=79824&lid=7

The reason Naruto is frequently out-of-date is because there were many people adding in bogus episodes, so to make sure that incorrect information wasn't put in, they had to lock the show so that only moderators can edit it (for background, see http://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=18591). The moderators can't possibly keep it as up-to-date as we would like, but they are very good at getting new episodes added as soon as information is available.

Kill la Kill

There's a lot of action. It's very fun to watch.

The plot is weird, and it's mostly fanservice, but still fun.

Riese: Kingdom Falling

It's pretty terrible. Especially the acting.

An allusion to Little Rock Central High School, and the Little Rock Nine. I assume that CW assumed we would understand the reference, and didn't expect everyone to be culturally illiterate.

I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job

Mostly fanservice (bunch of panty shots and cleavage), but a cute enough show.

Package Deal

This is a terrible show.

It's poorly written, poorly directed, poorly acted, has completely unbelievable characters, and the laugh track is unbearably annoying.

Don't waste thirty minutes of your life watching an episode.

Bravest Warriors

Can't believe I just learned about this show. It's fantastic. It's like Adventure Time in space.
