Good, Bad, and Super

What is better than the review of a movie or TV show? The review of two TV shows plus one of a movie, of course.

If you’re interested in my to-the-point opinions of the TV shows Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, both based on DC comics, and Deadpool, the movie based on a Marvel character, then read on and enjoy!

The Shannara Chronicles

I finally watched the first episode of The Shannara Chronicles, the TV series by MTV. While I would have loved to see it as a kid, let’s be serious, it wouldn’t have been this good. Today, however, fantasy story arcs are incredibly popular so this series now has a chance to both be entertaining while also being quite accurate to the source novels.

Thor: The Dark World

The God of Thunder returns in this sequel that is bigger and better than the first movie in just about every way yet it still doesn’t quite make it into the realm of an excellent movie though, elevated by some truly exceptional acting by a host of supporting characters, it comes really, really close.

Glee: It’s Ok to Not Cry

So, I saw tonight’s episode of Glee. I haven’t watched the show in a while but it was on in the background and I quickly realized it was dealing with the death of Cory Montieth/Finn.

I thought the episode was very good and very touching right up until the end at which point I have a problem with it. I apologize for being nitpicky about an episode in tribute to a young actor who tragically died far too young but my problem with the episode is worth mentioning, in my opinion. Warning – spoilers to follow.

Now, Dana White, president of the UFC, has put these two incredible women in charge of the teams for this season of The Ultimate Fighter. Oh, it’s going to be a great season!

Orphan Black, Season 1

Starring Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black is almost certainly the best show of which you’ve never heard. The show is a BBC America TV series about a troubled woman, Sarah Manning, who becomes aware that there are other women out there who look identical to herself. Her first exposure to one of her many clones is witnessing Elizabeth Childs throw herself in front of a train.

The World’s End

When I first saw Shaun of the Dead, I thought it was brilliantly funny. The team behind the movie (writers Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright) poked fun at the zombie movie genre while reverently making a fantastic zombie movie. With Hot Fuzz, they repeated their magic with the buddy cop genre, again respectfully poking fun at the genre. Could they strike gold a third time with an homage to the body snatcher genre?
