The Green Butchers

I wasn't aware comedy could be this dark. Urk. (Original title: De Grønne Slagtere)

Is this entire film a vaguely veiled homoerotic muddle? Or did I miss something?

The Wire: Season 4

Not quite the magic of the past 3 seasons. Plenty of excellent scenes, however.

It's Complicated

And neither has Nancy Meyers, apparently (heard of a screenplay). John Krasinski was pitch perfect, however.


Mike Judge goes from Office Space to this? It's as if he's never heard the term screenplay before.

Sherlock Holmes

The Law-Downey pairing has excellent chemistry, so why not film it as a play on screen instead of an action blockbuster?

Funny People

Like an overly long stand-up comedy routine, mixed in with Judd Apatow's real-life family videos.

Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars

Just quite good enough. I expected a bit more from O'Bannon and Kemper, especially Kemper, for the final ending.

Farscape: Season 4

Claudia Black with a lisp, the 1812 overture, the Crichton/Chiana twist-- ah, the utter genius.

Farscape: Season 2

It's the delivery and context that makes this the best line of season 2: "I hate these goggles, they look like CRAP!"

Farscape: Season 1

I love this series more than I love Firefly. If you know me, you know what that says about it. (Please, if you watch, give it 7-8 episodes before you judge.)
