I watched the movie "Marshall" with a friend this week and loved it! Even though Chadwick Boseman is the main character, and did an amazing job, I believe Sterling K. Brown was even better!

Taken (2017-) TV Series Season 1
EFX Rating35 stars

Well, Jennifer Beals finally grew into her eyes. The main character bears no physical relationship to Liam Neeson. I hadn't expected he would, though he's supposed to be the same character. He does a pretty good job of it, overall. In certain angles, I keep seeing Jeff Daniels, though a bit heavier, which is a bit distracting. If you're expecting this to be in parallel to the films, you'll be disappointed. There's plenty of action & it's good entertainment, but, if anything, they seem to be building the prequel to the man in the film franchise. If that's the case, it will be self limiting, obviously. I'm curious to see just how & where it goes. The seasons are short. Season 1 was only 10 episodes, though season two is expected to have 16. I'm hoping tha's a good sign.

Bull (2017-) TV Series Season 1
EFX Rating30 stars

I had ignored this one based on the synopsis. I never liked Dr. Phil & had no interest in a series based on his early work. While discussing recent shows, our very own Topmeasure told me I needed to reconsider & give it a try. I did. I'm glad. While nothing terribly great & the first few episodes had me fearing it was going to be extremely repetitive, after a few more episodes, I was sold. It's another procedural style series oriented on jury selection for trials. The characters aren't as endearing as I have found some in other series, & I didn't know any of the players, not having seen them in anything else, but over the season, they developed adequately. Toward the last, they introduced Eliza Dushku, who I've seen in many films over the years, mostly as a young girl, most notably in Buffy the Vampire Slayer & as Arnold Schwarzenegger's daughter in True Lies. I had always assumed she would end up an overweight alcoholic, living in a trailer park, but I was pleasantly surprised to see her as a mature woman, baby fat outgrown. That's probably because I don't watch commercial TV & missed her most current work. She's not stunning or especially beautiful, by Hollywood terms, but she is quite attractive & surprisingly, pulls off the part quite well. I'm looking forward to season 2, which is nearing its conclusion. I always wait until a season is finished, then binge it. (Yes, I'm one of those.)

Home Improvement: The complete series
EFX Rating40 stars

Still holds up fantastic after all these yrs, very funny and enjoyable. the transfers were not the greatest in the few first seasons. I think the studio didn't bother to clean it up.

Flight (2012)
EFX Rating10 stars

I just didn't enjoy this movie it wasn't all that interesting, Denzels character was a severe alcoholic and he flew drunk there the highlight of the story for me.

The Postman(1997)
EFX Rating30 stars

very long movie and overall pretty good story but still nothing extraordinary for me. very long movie almost 3 hrs

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women
EFX Rating20 stars

what a very weird backstory to the creation of wonder woman. i always knew the creator wasn't your standard writer but this movie sheds a completely new light on his inspiration for wonder woman and her first few yrs in publication

Man Down (2015)
EFX Rating0 stars

This movie was so strange and defiantly not your average war film , Its not even truly post apocalyptic, the main character (Shia LaBeouf) suffers from an extreme form of PTSD that make him think hes in an alternate future.

Stronger (2017)
EFX Rating20 stars

the only reason this movie gets two stars is because of jakes performance. He was convincing and you felt his emotion other than that it was nothing special. Its a different point of view off the Boston bombing, being told by a victim rather than the police like in patriots day

I've come to really appreciate Costner's overly long films. This is one of my faves, along with Water World, Open Range, Dances with Wolves & Wyatt Earp. I'm just glad you didn't blast it or I would have had to get medieval on your butt.
