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.
Everything about this movie feels phoned in. Sinbad is fun but it really feels like large swathes of the script is just "have Sinbad improv exasperation" instead of trying anything interesting. Every narrative beat is painfully obvious, even for a kid-friendly Disney movie.
Freaks owes a big debt to Firestarter but it's at least more original outside of its homage than Stranger Things was/is (and I like Stranger Things a lot).Very wise to deliver the world building through the perspective of Chloe. Good storytelling and impressive effects work.
Very cool low budget atmosphere piece. It's all tone and mood and it's done to good effect. Set design, cinematography, locations, makeup and costuming all work together to make some really striking visuals.
Thorough documentary that shares the African American perspective on the horror genre and charts the involvement of African Americans in the genre itself. Excellent panel for the talking heads. The documentary covers its subject from a place of love and handles it with the necessary care and importance.Enjoyed it.
Blown away by Jim Cummings' performance. The nuances to the character and the raw grief and emotional crisis of the story is so well-realized that I'm nearly at a loss for words. This is a movie that lives in a state of chaotic empathy and brings you into its world in such an immersive way that it's almost overwhelming.Spectacular movie.
