Aquaman was always one of my favorite comic books as a kid. I so wanted it to be great… but I found this one to under utilize the potential of Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson. The good stuff? Beautifully visualized underwater universe. Gorgeous colors and interesting use of sea creatures. Cool CGI effects. Kids will … More #CindySays… Aquaman is just your average fish story
Seriously… Why don’t we? I’m currently watching Solo which is new to DVD and rental. Yes, rental. Because of all the bad buzz around the rotating directors, I just never made it to the theater — which is exactly where it should be seen. It’s a decent space cowboy flick. The action is quick, with … More #CindySays Why don’t we “love” the new Star Wars stories?
If you like your spooks more brainy and sensitive, than slick and self-absorbed, this show is definitely worth your time. This Prime original is a joint effort with Paramount, which is a relationship that Amazon hopes will become a thing. In fact, this offering is on a scale we don’t see often from Amazon, so … More #CindySays is watching Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
Is it time to get off Social Media? My constitutional rights say that I have a right to privacy, but I give that up by using Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and any other app that uses data mining and algorithms to target products to consumers — and now, tell them who to vote for, we’ve learned. … More #CindySays: Facebook: Are you in? Or, are you out?
At the risk of dating myself, I think I know a bit about space. I’ve watched them all: Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who — I’m talking about originals, as well as the remakes. But, none were so delightful as the Space Family Robinson on Lost In Space, circa 1965. Adventurous Will, stalwart … More #CindySays Review: Lost in Space – Space Family Robinson is Found!
I have long considered Homeland to be one of the pillars of excellence in television. Taut, well-written, and cast with some of the best actors on one screen, it’s been a darling for both viewers and critics alike. It’s a roller coaster of a show. Few are as captivating as Clair Danes’ Carrie. Plagued by … More #CindySays: what is the fate of “Homeland”?
The intent of a pilot is to open a door just enough to give you a peek. If it is a good one, it will set the foundation, establish characters, give you a tantalizing taste of things to come– and leave you wanting more. Oasis does that exactly. Reminiscent of sci-fi stories told before, it reveals … More #CindySays Review – Amazon Original: Oasis (Pilot)
I was looking for something to watch that was suitable for fighting (and losing to) a sore throat on a rainy, gray day. After bouncing around, I landed on STARZ and The Missing, Season 2. Different yet every bit as good as the first, this story has an intricate and interwoven plot that bounces back and … More #CindySays Recommendation: The Missing
Feuding families, sketchy businesses, cutthroat competition … we’ve seen this over and again with mafia films and series. The Godfather, Goodfellas, Bugsy, Magic City, to My Blue Heaven are titles on a very long list as Hollywood has had an ongoing love affair with La Familia. The Sopranos took it to the next level as … More #CindySays: Review of Hulu Original “Shut Eye”
This post has been rolling around in my head for a few months, so I figured it was time to get it off my chest before the inauguration on January 20th. I’ve been thinking a lot about the state of US government following the sensational circus/train-wreck brought to you courtesy of the United States electoral … More Dear President Elect Trump… #CindySays check out these 5 worthy Celluoid Presidents (just in case you need a role model)
