Really Bad Movie Reviews: “The Purge”

The Purge One Sheet Poster via Universal Pictures

I am not a huge fan of Ethan Hawke (his teeth annoy me) much less his movies, so imagine how surprised I was when I saw the trailer for his latest psychological thriller movie The Purge and decided to give it a shot. Boy, was I wrong. Not only did I waste 85 minutes of my life I can’t get back, this movie was neither psychological nor a thriller as it left me with many unanswered questions and if possible, even less of a fan of Ethan Hawke, his teeth, and his movies.

‘Believe’ 1×09 “Prodigy” Promo

 

Grissom’s recommendation for must see T.V. picks premiering in 2014.

If you were a fan of shows like Alphas and Mutant X, you will  love NBC’s new show Believe which airs Sunday at 9/8c.

I have to say I was on the fence for this when I first saw the previews and decided to give it a chance anyways. I am just thrilled, this show has a small ensemble cast and watching them try to fit together like pieces of a puzzle is done in a very well but in a subtle way that you can’t help but wonder if a puzzle piece will be lost. Personally I do not think they could have casted a more talented actress to play the role of Bo Adams than Johnny Sequoyah (love both of the 1st names FYI). As for the role of William Tate, I know he has played a lot of different roles but to Grissom here, he will always in my heart be Alex Karev’s baby brother Aaron.

Believe is my recommendation. Check below for promo and where you can catch full episode of Believe. As always let us know your thoughts.

This week marked an end of an era in television history. After 8 wonderful years PSYCH closed its Psychic Private Detective doors and said goodbye leaving us viewers sad but satisfied. Last week, I did a PSYCH season finale in review, and I couldn’t help wondering how after eight years of laughs, movie quotes, amazing guest stars, snoopy dancing, fist bumps, the pineapple, the Blueberry, and the popular phrase “Suck It” would such an amazing show find a way to wrap everything up in a way that make would fans happy. Well, let me tell you, not since the series finale of Burn Notice have I seen a more perfect ending. Continue reading Recap: Psych 8×10, “The Breakup”

Recap: The Following 2×10, “Teacher’s Pet”

Last week on The Following, many viewers were surprised to find out that Claire was indeed alive and now in Witness Protection. Damn that Shawn Ashmore (Mike) and his on cue crying. I get it is his job to protect Claire and you could see on his face that it killed him lying to Ryan. Which in the end had its own positive spin. Ryan is now clean, sober, and healthier than he’s been in years. Granted he did it for the most part due to his obsession to track down Joe Carroll himself and kill him.
