Fargo (2014) (* T.V. Show on FX - Season 1 / 10 Episodes *)

As per Wiki...

"In 2006, Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) passes through Bemidji, Minnesota, and influences the community – including put-upon insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) – with his malice, violence, and deception. Meanwhile, Deputy Molly Solverson (Allison Tolman) and Duluth police officer Gus Grimly (Colin Hanks) team up to solve a series of murders they believe may be linked to Malvo and Nygaard."

***

Good, not great.  Far fetched.

6/10

T.V. Show Trailer :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M96FUoDpnfc


  I would give it a higher rating to the first one . It was a well paced and innovative story telling . It is meant to be a little far fetched especially when it comes to law enforcement but with more of todays news it seems reality is stranger than fiction  these days .

 Not sure where it was going and had me wanting to see more . They the Coen brothers creates a hitch with interesting characters that compels me to watch .

 The two Fargos made after that were a little bit of a let down but I still watched . I would say a 6 or 7 for the others but an 8 for the first . In terms of crap on TV you have to say it's better than the regular network stuff it's just that much of Fargo is meant to be campy , tongue in cheek and well extremely violent .

  Birth of the Dragon 2016 

   It is the fictional account of the fight between two martial arts icons Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man set in 1964 San Francisco .

  I actually enjoyed this little breath of fresh air . It was a good movie that was a throw back to much cleaner movie making with a morality play  based on two different men with very diverse motives for being masters of their craft . 

 With it comes a little damsel in distress with a caucasian friend to both trying to be the hero and learn a little Kung Fu along the way .


  Would recommend it for a general audience who would like to watch something that is tame ( not vulgar ) yet still very much entertaining . Must also like martial arts movies at least once in awhile .

I am part way thru Season 2 and I love it.  I find it much better than Season 1.  :)

 Season 2 of Fargo is good but you will see it goes kinda wonky a bit but the characters in it are first rate . 

  It just compels you to keep watching .

  Westworld Season 2 

   The Park is now running full amok .

  HBO hit out of the park once again . Can't wait for the next episode . 

  Great story for a slim story line if based entirely on the original movie . They decided to create a fantastic back story that they can go back to throughout the series to peak your interest . 

  Sometimes when they do this like on TWD (the walking dead ) it falls flat and creates moments for the viewer to walk away to the fridge .

  In Westworld you don't want to miss a moment .

  The ability to be intrigued about characters and care what happens is such an important factor and for them to actually get you involved with artificial intelligence 
and the odd moral and emotional bond is so good . The writing and acting is top of the line . 

  Such great escapism . TV Time worth wasting .

The Survivalist (2015) :

The end of the civilized world has come and there are few survivors.  One survivor lives alone on a small farm, when a mother and daughter appear at his door.  He takes them in and, let's just say, he was better off alone - as the old saying goes :

"Women...  You can't live with them, and you sure as hell can't trust them after the apocalypse".

The critics loved The Survivalist but it was a little too mean spirited/dark/depressing for me.

Revenge (2017) :

"A young woman is assaulted by three men and left for dead, but she returns with revenge on her mind " - as per Wiki.

This film contains endless blood, guts and male nudity - none of which does anything for me. The critics loved Revenge but I was "meh" about this overly stylish, empty, unrealistic thriller.

don't know how well this movie is done, but I have always liked the plot of a woman doling well deserved revenge on men.
Crush cream soda is oh so good.  I think I'll have another

I don't think I am always right, it just keeps turning out that way

It scored 90% on Rotten Tomatoes - which is rare air, indeed.

You get to see her little bum, in short shorts, running thru the desert for a good chunk of the movie.  She looks like Jessica Alba.

As for the violence, the movie felt like "torture porn" to me.  Yuck!

Disobedience (2018 ) :

A rabbi dies and his daughter returns to the Orthodox Jewish community from which she was banished because of her lifestyle - she is a sexually promiscuous bisexual. During her return she is drawn to her first love, the wife of the rabbi in training. The wife loves her back and it tears apart, not only the wife's marriage, but also the community.

The first half of Disobedience is excellent.  The love between the two women is undeniable and so is the tension.  However, once the two women consummate their relationship, the movie loses momentum and the second half becomes a bit of a Halakha soap opera.

Still, it is quite good and the acting is spectacular.
