I’m not big on award shows. I don’t like the self-congratulatory nature of them and I can’t stand the politics behind it. Having said that, I didn’t watch the Emmys. I thought about it, I even intended to watch them and livetweet them the next morning. But I didn’t bother. I’ll still share a few thoughts about them here, albeit several days later.

This is the time of year when I get bogged down with all the series I follow. Some shows fall by the wayside while others get picked up if word of mouth or marketing is strong enough. Obviously I can’t devote a post every week (like with Bates Motel or Under the Dome) to every show I watch. So here’s a new weekly series I’m going to try my best to work on as the fall TV season unfolds.
I’m already off to a semi-bad start considering this was meant to go up Sunday. But I’ll try my best in the future to post these when I intend them to be posted.
Before you start reading, I must warn you that this is a SPOILER HEAVY list, obviously. Read at your own discretion.
I wrote this in response to the end of season 3 of Game of Thrones. When I first started watching the series, I wanted to read each season’s corresponding book before I watched the adaptation. Given the length of the novels, my impatience and fear of being spoiled I stopped about 1/3 of the way through the second book and got caught up on the series.
Thankfully, I avoided all spoilers for the end of season three. What I got in return was one of the biggest “HOLY SHIT” moments in recent television memory. It’s the moment everyone has been talking about and now that I’ve finally seen it, I’ve been inspired to make a list of the most tragic moments in television. Enjoy.
Fairly charming coming of age story with some interesting uses of Bruce Springsteen's music. The drama between Javed and his family is pretty standard coming of age movie fare and doesn't really break any new ground. Not that it necessarily needs to. The story is satisfying enough to carry the movie through some tropes and undercooked subplots. But […]
Meh. This was the first time watching Frozen since, I think, 2013 or 2014. I wasn't terribly impressed by it the first time I saw it. But I gained a slight appreciation of it this time around. Really, the music is what makes this movie stand out. The story has never really hooked me. It's fine, at the end of the day, though.
I think after The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, (I never saw the other ones) this franchise has kind of lost its luster for me. It's still a fun concept but The LEGO Movie 2 doesn't really embraces the imagination of it all. The sibling storyline doesn't have the emotional resonance that the movie should give it.The animation is good a […]
I should not have watched this at work. It's heartbreaking and incredibly insightful into who Anton Yelchin was and the talent that left the world when he passed away.Tons of footage is used to immortalize Yelchin's spirit and is combined with truly beautiful accounts from his friends and colleagues about him. This documentary is such a beautiful l […]
