Backstrom

From the creator of BONES, comedic crime procedural BACKSTROM centers on an unhealthy, offensive, irascible — albeit brilliant — detective (Rainn Wilson) who is brought back from exile to run the Portland Police Bureau’s Special Crimes Unit (S.C.U.)

A great cast list on this show from Ringer‘s Kristoffer Polaha, to 24‘s Dennis Haysbert, and Weeds‘ Page Kennedy. There is an interesting list of comedians acting in this drama/dark comedy, its not your typical story and I like the character played by Rainn Wilson. This show is going to air in January with only 13 episodes, and I can’t wait to see it. It has a lot of actors that I like with an interesting story.

Chef – A Movie That Makes You Hungry

A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

One Hell Of A Cast:

  • Jon Favreau
  • Sofia Vergara
  • John Leguizamo
  • Scarlett Johansson
  • Robert Downey Jr.
  • Dustin Hoffman

You would really have to do pretty badly to screw up a movie with this cast line up, half of them from the Marvel Universe and the other half are great actors. I love any movie with Jon Favreau, one reason is because he is Iron Man’s Body Guard / Driver, and the other reason is he brought Iron Man to life and with that came all the Marvel Movies behind his success. This movie is a different kind of movie for from Jon Favreau and if you want to watch a fun movie with great characters and really good looking food then this is it, I honestly can’t recommend it enough. Its got all the pieces of a great movie with a deep and fun story, and Jon Favreau makes you want to go into the kitchen and do something crazy with the food. And don’t watch the movie hungry, you will end craving everything you see on screen.

Games Of Throne – Season 4 – The Wrap Up

I finished up the show a little while back but took me time to talk about it, and it is by far one of the best shows on TV for a very long time now. This season had everything for me and satisfied me by killing off people I hated, one specific bastard that I really hated. I’m assuming who ever is reading this has probably seen season 4, if not then there will be a lot of spoilers ahead. I do love seen the spoilers and there is a lot coming up for Season 5, and I love how the story is developing, now to see whats going to come from the North. Too bad the Prince of Dorne got killed off, Oberyn was a very eccentric character, and as usual Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister does amazingly and the second half of the season he plays his role brilliantly. I love how there are so many different story lines to follow between John Snow & Daenerys Targaryen and whats going on in Kings Landing but you are always kept on your toes, it’s going to be a while before Season 5 but hopefully its going to be even better.

KICKASS2

Devious Maids – The Surprise Hit

DeviousMaids1

Four Latina maids with ambition and dreams of their own work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.

A 13 episode twister turned out to be a very exciting show, honestly much better then I expected I watched it episode to episode, I couldn’t wait to watch it. Eva Langoria is the executive producer of the show and she has a hit on her hands. Maids of the rich and famous of Beverly Hills is bound to have some comedy and drama thrown into the mix, and I loved the characters portrayed.

DeviousMaids2

The core of the story revolves around the maids and the one maid who was killed, and who was the killer. The antics that take place in these people’s houses is hilarious. A summer hit in my opinion and kept me watching until the end, with the perfect twist for next season, which will be next summer, it was short but sweet. I’m 100% sure every woman that watched this show loved it.

Up Coming Movie Trailers

ROBOCOP – The reboot is looking AMAZING, I have been a huge fan of Robocop watching it countless times when I was kid, he was the ultimate supercop. Now this reboot is coming and this trailer looks good, Alex Murphy is back as Robocop, and I’m liking the people in this movie and the twist on the story. The best thing is they didn’t change the OCP logo, got to love when they honor elements from the original 1987 movie.

I’ FRANKENSTEIN – From the creators of Underworld and the main character played by Eric Eckhart, I know I’m going to enjoy this movie and the trailer looks pretty damn good. Been a while since we have seen a good fantasy like this, I enjoyed the Underworld movies but the later ones were ridiculous, and I did love Van Helsing, this one looks to be better then them.

JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT – A reboot to the Tom Clancy character Jack Ryan, third time’s the charm played by Chris Pine, and this character was previously played by Alec Baldwin & Harrison Ford. Lets see how this plays out but I’m liking the espionage story, looks complex with lots of action, just what I like.

MACHETTE KILLS – Come on, this movie needs no introduction, if you loved the first one you will love this one. You can not mess with perfection

Suits – Hell Of An Ending – Season 3 & Counting

Suits1

If you don’t know about this show or haven’t watched it then you are really missing out. For the third season of the show turned out to be the best, wrapping up a long plot with battle of the law offices and one very big client. This is one intense law drama with it’s very unique characters, and the its the characters that really pull you in Donna Paulson (Harvey’s Secretary) is my favorite by far, I want a secretary like her.

Suits2

Mike Ross is still on edge with the firm but he is getting ballsier and more confident this season and I am especially liking Harvey Specter with his twists and turns as well. This is one of the most entertaining shows this past summer, and yes the summer has past but if you haven’t seen this show then watch it you will not regret it.

Review: The Great Gatsby

TGG1

A Midwestern war veteran finds himself drawn to the past and lifestyle of his millionaire neighbor.

THE GREAT GATSBY

I lean more to action or science fiction movies, but there are movies at times which surpass your expectations and The Great Gatsby was one of them. I didn’t have a chance to see it in the theaters, and it is a long movie so you have to make time for it. It was worth the wait, a very uniquely done movie, and I was impressed and the sound track is mesmerizing. I really don’t like Tobey Maguire & Leonardo DiCaprio as actors since they annoy me, and Tobey is an asshole but this movie is so good that I could tolerate watching them. Make time for this movie, its worth it.

Crappy Movies – Admission & Spring Breakers

SpringBreakers

Spring Breakers

Every once in a while I write about movies that were not up to my expectation, and thats rare since I enjoy most movies. Spring Breakers turned out to be one very weird and annoying movie, here I thought it would some crazy girls going on a crime spree during spring break, but I was wrong. James Franco made no sense in this movie either, from Spring Breakrs to Oz the Great & Powerful, I don’t know who is choosing his scripts but they need to fired. Don’t waste your time with this movie, it sucks.

Admission

Admission

Anything that Tina Fey does I usually love, she is the genius behind 30 Rock, I have loved the show for the past 7 years. So I was expecting this to be a pretty good comedy coming from her, and the trailer looked pretty good. But this turned out to be a comedy drama, not as funny as I was expecting. I thought it would be better, and the story revolves around Tina Fey’s character, the trailer looked funnier but it seems there was more drama, not what I was hoping for.

Elementary – Ending With A Bang

Elementary1

A show that I enjoyed from the beginning and one of the most satisfying seasons I have watched yet. Ending on a very high note, and a big bang with the perfect type of build up. This show was so good that I thought of Sherlock Holmes as only this odd genius and nothing else from the movies or the original books. Surprisingly Lucy Liu played an excellent Watson, not the person you would expect to play the role which made it even better, and she was fantastic in the show, and not in her usual roles. This show is a must see with an excellent and well developed story line, it leaves you satisfied and I’m excited to see what they have planned for next season.
