Good Movies / TV Shows

Recommended Posts

 

Watched the first two. Initial impressions. Krasinski is miscast after the likes of Ford, Pine, Affleck and Baldwin have played the Ryan role. Not a bad actor but goofy looking.

 

Hated his boss from the first "shithead" moment, later puctuated by calling Ryan "Lance Armstrong" and purposely embarrassing him in the first group meeting.

 

Looks like they went cheap on overall casting. Timothy Hutton? I find it hard to take him seriously in the role. Just me.

 

I like the actor, Ali Suliman, playing Mousa bin Suleiman.

 

 

In all fairness, it's a pretty damn good show. I believe they did cast non-superhero main characters like Ryan with his chubby girlfriend on purpose. Worked on me. Wendell Pierce was actually quite funny.

Done through four episodes and the show has grown on me.

Jack Ryan spoiler alert

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, the brillinat Americans take the terrorists's family to an American safe house and then give the daughter of the terrorist a device capable of communicating over the internet.

 

Loser show.

 

The only good characters on this show are the arabs. At least they are diabolocally fun.

I was surprised by your comment, so I opened the "review" section at IMDB just to find many 1 ratings from similarly unhappy viewers. Most people complain about the show not being authentic Tom Clancy. Of course it isn't. it's a show based on his characters. Yes the last three episodes got an 8.9 rating out of 10 from 11000+ plus viewers. Judge for yourself...

I really liked the arabs in the show. I guess I was unhappy about weak plot lines and people doing things that are convenient to the plot but not logical....like giving an internet capable gaming device to the daughter of a terrorist, who then contacts her brother, who then tells the dad, who then escapes.

 

I am not usually so harsh on shows. This one got under my skin somehow. I am sure that there are many shows I have liked that others would question my sanity for liking it. I am happy for all of you that are fans of the show. I am one minor critic.

Just saw "Mile 22." Knew the reviews were not good but it is supposedly set in Southeast Asia and stars Mark Wahlberg. It falls in the atrociously bad but watchable category due to more or less continuous shoot em up action and has the saving grace of only beng 90 minutes. Story line is preposterous and it was definitely not filmed in Southeast Asia.

I saw SEARCHING and it was the best movie that I’ve seen this year; and it’s worthy of its win at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. It’s a real “Whodunnit” movie with lots of unexpected twists and turns similar to an Alfred Hitchcock movie. As in our normal lives, the movie makes heavy use of personal computers, social media, Facetime, “catfishing”, texting, etc. to tell the story but in a coherent way.

The movie’s underlying message is that the cover-up of a crime is always worst than the crime being covered up.

Endeavor

 

Prequel to Inspector Morse.

 

While I can't see the growth of Evans to Thaw, I will say that Endeavor is pretty good. Not great, but often interesting while a bit long (an American bias?)

 

I want to add that I am becoming a fan of British detective television in its many forms, often in periods, which I really like. Cadfael was one of my favorites. Doc Martin was a most interesting twist on the genre and had one of the quikiest protagonists ever.

 

Of those I have seen everything commercially available in the USA.

For those who are fans of Netflix's "Vikings"...
for something far, far better (and realistic), I highly recommend "Norsemen"

Not many people realise that Normandy in France was named after the settled 'Norseman' immigrant population and the Norse rulers of that area of France.

They got about those Vikings!
