When you hear that Martin Scorsese has made a new crime movie with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and a pulled-out-of-retirement Joe Pesci, that’s cause to get excited. Scorsese is a master filmmaker, and his crime films are among the best in the genre.

The Irishman is no exception. A 210-minute examination of the life and times of Frank Sheeran, or at least the version he told of them, Scorsese and De Niro tell stories within stories that remind us why they’re among the best at what they do.

Daredevil Review: Too Long, But Pretty Good Anyway

Television / Comments Off on Daredevil Review: Too Long, But Pretty Good Anyway

Daredevil

I’ve finally seen all of Daredevil, the first of Marvel’s (current) 5 Netflix shows. So here’s a quick rundown of what I thought of all 13 episodes. TL;DR version? I liked it, but I didn’t love it. Also, this review will contain spoilers. I’ll keep it to a minimum but it is just not going to be possible to avoid them all, and since I like it enough to recommend you watch it, well, … you’re warned anyway.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend

Netflix has gone full bore on creating original content and it’s really been paying off. House of Cards and Orange is the new Black are critical darlings, Lillyhammer is in its third season so there must be an audience, and now they’re making a foray into feature films by producing Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

But their plans aren’t going as smoothly as they might like.

House of Cards

House of Cards may have been a big gamble for Netflix but it paid off in spades. The series was the first digitally distributed series to be nominated in the major Emmy categories, one of which it won (David Fincher took home a directing trophy) and Robin Wright took home a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Claire Underwood, the iron wiled wife of series protagonist Frank Underwood.

The second season of the show is still 10 days away from being broadcast but today the LA Times is reporting that a third seasons has been confirmed.

Review: Arrested Development Season 4

Television / Comments Off on Review: Arrested Development Season 4

Arrested Development Cast

It’s finally back. It’s finally back. Arrested Development was cancelled after just three seasons on Fox because despite critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base the series never gained enough rating to justify keeping it on the air (or so Fox said, many are dubious of this).

There have been various efforts to bring the show back through the 7 years since it’s cancellation but finally Netflix bought the rights, brought everyone back and now we have a 4th season. But is it the 4th season we’ve been waiting for? Yes and no.
