Fargo The Law of Inevitability Review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

The blue streak continues on Fargo. Life has never been worse for Sy Feltz (Michael Stuhlbarg), Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor), and maybe Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who’s mysterious and world-weary enough to indicate season 3 of Fargo is far from her first bad time in Minnesota. Noah Hawley‘s FX series experiences the shockwave of last week’s shocking episode in “The Law of Inevitability,” in which Chief Moe Dammick (Shea Whigham) enlightens us on the mashed potato theory and how he proceeds when the sun is out.

Below, check out our latest Fargo review.

bloodline season 3 review

The Rayburn family is a complicated bunch. John Rayburn (Kyle Chandler) once believed they were good people who just did a bad thing, but in season three, the waters get even murkier. In the emotional, sometimes frustrating third and final season, the family takes some long, contemplative looks in the mirror.

Below, check out our spoiler-filled Bloodline season three review.

wonder woman reviews

Anticipation is high for Wonder Woman, not simply because it is the first female superhero movie of the modern age of comic book films, but also because it is a ray of hope for the abysmally-reviewed DC Extended Universe movies, stretching from Man of Steel to Suicide Squad. With not a fresh tomato rating in sight for any of the past DCEU movies, could Wonder Woman break the trend? The glass ceiling, so to speak?

Critics have spoken: Wonder Woman is quite simply, wonderful. Director Patty Jenkins‘ first foray into the DCEU and Wonder Woman’s (played by Gal Gadot) first solo foray onto the big screen is a runaway success, presenting an earnest and thrilling superhero movie with old-school charms that everyone seems to agree is the DCEU’s best movie yet.

silicon valley customer service review

If you think Richard Hendrix is awkward, imagine having sex with him.

Actually, scratch that – don’t ever think about that. The descriptions are enough. Clanking teeth. “All elbows.” Someone who says “Gulp” out loud when a woman takes her bra off. Yeah, Richard gets laid in this episode and that’s enough awkward for anyone to take.

Twin Peaks review part 3 and 4

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Twin Peaks: The Return by answering one question: what was the best scene of the episode?)

Last week, Showtime unveiled the two-part premiere of Twin Peaks (or Twin Peaks: The Return, as it’s being called on their website). The premium channel dropped parts 3 and 4 online immediately afterwards, and then aired those back to back on the traditional channel last night, marking the final time until September’s season finale that they’ll release two parts in a row on a Sunday evening.

Ahead, we dive into the best scenes of parts 3 and 4, including Cooper’s trip through space and the jaw-dropping introduction of a new character named Wally Brando.

lemon scented you review

(Each week, we’ll kick off our discussion of American Gods by answering one simple question: which character do we worship this week?)

Last week gave us a taste of mortal malaise, but this week we return to the pantheon. American Gods continues to give answers at the price of a hundred new questions, as ‘Lemon Scented You’ offers us a seat in the war room for the first negotiations between the Old Gods and the New. As Laura Moon comes head-to-head with the unlucky Mad Sweeney and Mr. Wednesday comes head-to-head with Mr. World, we finally learn the nature of the storm.

In just five days, I have visited Disney World’s new Pandora: The World of Avatar, experienced Universal Orlando’s third theme park Volcano Bay, and the grand opening of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure. I’ll have more on Volcano Bay and AvatarLand next week, but today, I wanted to give you my quick reaction to Mission Breakout. How does Marvel’s first step into North American Disney Parks compare to the former and beloved attraction it replaced, The Twilight Zones Tower of Terror?

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Review

How convenient it is that one of the last lines of dialogue uttered in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, courtesy of Captain Jack Sparrow, sums up the experience of watching the film: “What a truly revolting sight.” Indeed. What was once the flagship franchise for Walt Disney Pictures has now become an unavoidable anchor weighing the studio down. This Pirates is perhaps not the most exhausting entry in the series, but it is easily the most visually and narratively incoherent.

Fargo The Lord of No Mercy Review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

“The Lord of No Mercy” is a more than fitting title for this week’s episode of FargoNoah Hawley‘s FX series got grimmer this week, paying off previous events in an unexpected and tragic fashion. Things are destined to only get worse from here, but the two most recent episodes of Fargo had few laughs to soften some serious blows.

Baywatch Review

It’s time for the second big studio comedy of the summer to hit theaters in the form of Baywatch, the big screen adaptation of the popular TV series from the 1990s that starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.

Hitting the beach are Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as a couple of musclehead lifeguards who get caught up in some high stakes action and danger. All the trailers have teased an action comedy in the same vein of 21 Jump Street, but if the first Baywatch reviews are any indication, then it’s nowhere near as good, and it barely keeps itself afloat.

Read on for the Baywatch review round-up after the jump. Read More »
