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.

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.

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”?

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)
Looking for a new Netflix fix? Check out the series Offspring. From Australia, it centers around Nina, an obstetrician who is brilliant at work but sort of a mess otherwise. More of a dramedy, think a lighter version of Grey’s Anatomy times Ally McBeal plus extended family and coworkers that are constantly in each others’ … More #CindySays Netflix Find: Offspring (TV series)
