Dave Chappelle's specials were better, but this was still funny.
I can no longer stand the "stereotypical nerd who gets beat up in school" cliche, is annoying, really annoying to me. Someone beats you up and you stand there like a retarded? For f***** sake, grow some balls. This kind o writing was pretty popular for a long time, but this doesn't mean that this type of right should be rewarded.
While I did find it entertaining, Gossip Girl has its flaws. But First, let us go to its wins and then talk about its sins:
The Shows starts fine to good. Its characters are interesting and Dan Humphrey serves as the chain that connects the audience with the plot. This is basically the first season introducing the main plot, where a low-medium class boy from Brooklyn ends up in the world of Upper East Side (as a foreign this means nothing, but the show explains it nicely). This high-class society has a "villain" in the website Gossip Girl that releases secrets and news in blog form. The first season, besides setting the plot and presenting the characters, makes the plot interesting enough to follow and relatable enough in the hands of Dan, Jenny, Vanessa, and Rufus. It shows that even Rufus have some secrets, some people are not what they seemed, but the plot does make sense.
All the way to the third or four season things are good to really nice. There are more plots, more interesting characters like Georgina. Some romances you start wanting to end up together are form and then ends miserably, though not unbelievably and not logically.
The last few seasons like the fifth and sixth manages to get very few wins. The only I found really worth noting is making Blair more sympathetic to the viewer. The last episode is actually nice, though it has many sins in it that I'm going to write about.
The SinsThe first sin is related to this type of TV show, or in other words, its genre. More specifically the tsunami of drama it happens to the main cast of the show. We see it in Grey's Anatomy, though more emotionally presented, we see it in Supernatural with its resurrect Dean to resurrect Sam to resurrect Dean to resurrect sam.... and so on. Gossip Girl has something similar, it has its drama focused on the inability of the characters to actually sit down and talk to each other. The repetition of secrets and "I can't tell you right now" appears to be needed in the time a plot is happening, but if you pay attention, one may see that the whole thing happened because this one person did something stupid like plotting a ridiculous plan instead of talking to people. I mean, if you have a secret and it relates to your ex, it doesn't matter if it is a secret while you are in a relation.
Another sin is the unbelievable shit people do here and get out of it as if nothing happened or the character is just hated now. For example, Jenny gets drugged and left to be raped by some guys in an unknown place, it doesn't happen because Nate saves the day and rescues her. This is fine, but have you heard of something called "CRIME"? If someone breaks the law he/she deserves to be locked up, not just "forgive or just forget".
And to end this long superficial analysis with what I remember now of the show: Dan Humphrey becomes evil than good and reveals he is Gossip Girl. To be honest, here, the only person I actually cared about in the begging of the show was the Humphreys and Vanessa with some kind of niceness towards Selina (which becomes evil basically, when she deceives Dan and tapes a sex tape to punish Blair (WTF?)). To turn him evil would have made some sense if it started in the first season while turning other characters more likable (yes, even more, likable than Chuck or Blair did, they still did some pretty shitty stuff towards the end). The fact that Dan is Gossip Girl feels more like the writers wrote the show with the possibility of anyone being Gossip Girl, and if someone had a pretty good shot at it, they would have revealed it was another person. While it doesn't make sense of Dan being Gossip Girl, the fact is that during the first seasons I kind see some things that don't make much sense, if I'm not remembering correctly, wasn't Gossip Girl who got in the way sometimes of Dan's relationships? To be honest I don't remember, even though I just marathoned it.
Just rewatch (again, 5th time I think) and have to say what I never expressed right, the shows is good till the 4 season, 5 season starts its downfall though still good. But this is one of my favorites. The IT Crowd is on pair with the first seasons of Community, though one of my favorites is Fawlty Towers.... or Fawrty Towels, Farty Towwels....
While I do get the reason a comedy show mocking politics and the people around it is so successful, I found Veep to be barely funny most of the times with some giggles here and there. I cannot laugh when all, seriously all, of the characters are so unlikable and doesn't change at all maintaining their ridiculous problematic personality without any room for improvement. Imagine a comedy show but with a bunch of arrogant pricks, a few masochists and submissive types, greedy types that are openly greedy with loose morals and you would see a really crap show where you would found Veep. I do get the joke were they are basically saying politics is the joke and people in it are pretty much the worse people on earth, but even so, most jokes I didn't find it funny, even if some were pretty original or smart. I guess I just don't like these embarrassing-type joke or absurd reaction to dickness.
One of the worse animations since toei.... toei sucks. I'm only comparing to toei because they tried an anime look.
I do agree this has a marvelous soundtrack while being an adaptation is good, but as a movie about Dracula it doesn't live to the book.
Incredible, one of the best war movies out there. Not my favorite, but clearly a master piece. I found it to be very long, but when I came to mark here I discovered that I've watched the Uncut Version (the movie was 3h28min).
Its been a long time since I watched a movie so boring!
Watchable but really meh, better shows got cancelled while this goes on.
Zack, the kid you wish it were dead.
Not so good mistery. I figure who did with 11 minutes of play time. The professor obviously was the one since he had a 40% approval, it was obvious he was cheating in a challenging context.
The movie made me feel compassion for the missionaries, the villagers and even made me understand why a government would go to such lengths to "murder" an idea. Even though I believe that both sides are wrong, the government being the worst of it, doing to the extreme to stop indoctrination and the church trying to pass their believes as the only truth that, for me, is totally taking advantage of people who are in a almost complete state of despair.But you cannot stop the feels, even if you don't believe, you can fully enjoy this movie.
I love how the shows started, but finale was utterly disappointing. The Finale of the first season was pretty much ridiculous, doesn't she realize that she is trusting the person that could do something worse to her than rape? He is a pedophile! And she is supposed to be smart!
When I watched this I was on the dinner table, I wasn't able to cry there because I was also talking with my family, but later, when I was watching paying attention, the sadness and how brilliant this movie is hit and even remembering now makes me close to crying.
I believe that I liked the movie more than usual, because after I google analysis about the movie to make sure that the message was passed to me, of course, I did understand what the movie was trying to say, but there is always something that you miss or dont have time to rewatch it analysing each part. I dont know, I just like to take the most out of a movie, specially a great one.
t have time to rewatch it analysing each part. I don
Great movie, very different from what we have in Brazil, the only annoying thing is the overuse of slow-mo scenes.
An amazing movie which shows you how far one group can go to defend power and the most awful problem that still persists in the world since the beginning of civilization.
Did love how they got together, but hate it the movie plot. Damsel in distress? Really? Again? Naruto has some great characters but poorly use in the movies, all the fights naruto doesn't use all his power, only in the end, in the beginning when he could use it to save Hinata (which was obviously made weaker for the movie, and then shows some power in the middle, doesn't even make sense) he uses a few clones and rasengan, the end.
I think Damian should be way more older than this, some fights scenes I can't stop being annoyed for the fact that Damian, a little kid who weights what, around 50kg while a ridiculous huge guy or monster who may weight 4 times that can be kicked so far away just because he was trained by the League of Assassins, it doesn't matter who you got to train with, you can't challenge physics, unless there is a "plot filler" explanation with fiction like "It's magic" or "It's God', or the favorite "Because I'm Batman".
I don't what this movie tries to pass, if it's supposed to be a comedy it doesn't have to have a message, but it isn't funny, the only thing I saw that may be something is "Don't do drugs" message, if it is this message was poorly delivered. If was at least some "Michael Bay" kind movie I would have understood it better, the message would be "There is no message, is all about the money... and explosions".
This episode was better than the pilot, the pilot sucks.
I don't know why this season has suck a low score, it wasn't worst than season 2 and it got on a subject about how religion screws science when it doesn't agree with it.
The finale of this episode was so funny in the irony, great come back, Virginia's Son is like Captain 'Murica before the drugs, and her Daughter really have a fetish for older guys lol, in which I think they should explorer but I doubt a little because of her age.
It is good enough to watch, don't expect a masterpiece not even something great, it's a TV show for when you have nothing better to do which is most of the TV shows out there.The Plot:Not complex, the thing that got in my nerves is they don't answer some pretty simple questions that needed to be appointed. The other part is that they don't explore the Volm culture enough making them look like they are their only as a fix for Earth's technological inferiority.The Acting:I'm didn't see anything bad in the acting, the actor who plays Tom Mason it's good, Weaver it's quite good him self, Tom's sons also do a pretty good job.The other stuff:Special Effects is something that I don't mind being week in TV Series, I totally understand why some of those don't make better ones, (MONEY!!!!). The Soundtrack was nothing amazing but it did make the show any more horrible.
The second season is way better than the first, in the first season you think this would be another chick flick with an apocalypse theme, but in the second season the story takes a more serious turn with questions of right and wrong, and what would you do if those who you love were in danger.
I won't say this was my favorite show, but this is really a funny one, they should have made at least 5 or 6 seasons, (My Favorite Comedy Show is Community).
The movie is watchable, the acting bearable but the story is a fairy tail bed time story, it's like Cinderela mix with Snow White.The only actor who is starting to astonish me is Eddie Redmayne who can act like few can.The story was the main problem, it would be wonderful if they took out the romance bs and put more construction on the characters, this movie would be more good if it were a TV Series or a book, with a compelling story of a far society who farms people to live forever, it would be great, but the movie lacks construction, and with less cliches it would've been a great story.The special effects and the ideas of future tech (or pass tech in the movie) was awsome, it not excellent as movies like Avatar, but has some great views and beautiful settings.
I like this show, but this kind of cartoons that the characters only gets screwed is for me kind of tiring and after so long starts to get annoying, even simpsons sometimes seems repetitive even if its "Excelent" (Mr Burns).
But for an adult comedy cartoon this is a great one, it's really funny from some really weird situations, the only part that didn't really like are the voices some times but nothing so horrible.
