A Simplistic Review: Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

I guess to get to the good stuff…you have to go by the numbers and set a baseline. Having just seen “Ghost Protocol” for the first time, I understand the problem it had when it came out. It really only works as a companion to the following film, “Rogue Nation” and it had to follow up the best in the series, for my money “M:I III.” This one reminds me too much of the 1996 original and it comes off feeling procedural and flat

A Simplistic Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Same director…same cast…same crazy sh*t, but why didn’t people like this “Kingsman” as much as the last one? Snobs, and who knows…Sure. would I say this one takes a step back from it’s predecessor…maybe, but it’s not by much. Mark Strong is so good btw…

24: Season Two

When you follow a historic season things seem like they would of been tough. But for 24: Season Two everything came off way too easy and instead the writers wrote an even better season.

For fans of 24, Season 2 will always be the reason George Mason will never leave our minds. Thanks Mason!

The second season is set 18 months after season one. The season’s main plot follows the work of now-U.S. President David Palmer and agent Jack Bauer to stop terrorists from detonating a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles. Introduced into the situation is Kate Warner, a woman who ends up getting vital information related to CTU’s mission.

A Simplistic Review: Back to the Future III

For all the confusion you might run into with the “Back to the Future” series with it’s time travel problems and breaks in scientific logic, you have to admit that “BttF III” is tons of fun and the easiest to follow.

Sure, it has it’s flaws of weaving in a weird love story for Doc Brown, but anything in the Wild West is fun and hits a Bullseye despite what Bob Gale might say.

A Simplistic Review: Hannibal

One day, we’ll look back at the fact that “Hannibal” is actually very very good despite what book snobs might consider an inferior ending, but do most people know how the book actually ended, and could you believe the uproar! Oh, and btw, Gary Oldman…is well…great…

I’ll even go as far as saying I enjoy this more than “The Silence of the Lambs” but again, the more gore, the better, and “Hannibal” has crimson stuff to spare.
