Big Little Lies Premiere: “Somebody’s Dead”

Big Little Lies Premiere: “Somebody’s Dead”

With Liane Moriarity’s book being a well-accepted success, we eagerly awaited the release of HBO’s adaptation of Big Little Lies.  Boasting such a rich acting quality of Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, and Nicole Kidman to name the least, it isn’t hard to see this series becoming a hit.  But let’s start at the beginning. The episode begins like the book. Someone is dead at a school function and everyone is a suspect. Cutting between interviews of witnesses and the beginning of the school year, the audience will see the story unfold as the events lead up to the death, which will most likely occur in the finale....

Girls: “Hostage Situation”

Girls: “Hostage Situation”

The final season of Girls is underway and in the second episode of the season, things go a little crazy. But after five seasons of these characters, crazy is all we know. So without crazy it wouldn’t be the show we’ve come to know and love. As previously mentioned, this show wouldn’t be itself if it weren’t for our favorite characters acting in insane ways.  As last season ended and this season began, I had hope for Marnie. Sure, she and Ray called each other ‘babe’ or ‘baby’ a lot, but I had hope that maybe Marnie was on a good path and finding her center and being less of a selfish human...

The Young Pope: “Episode Six”

The Young Pope: “Episode Six”

While the season has certainly been full of interesting moments, this episode starts off with a bang. Or rather, some banging. And we learn that many who take the priest’s cloth do not, in fact , abide by its rules. Lenny’s childhood friend Cardinal Dussolier is not only having sex outside the priesthood, he’s having threesomes with a man and a woman.  Oh, my.  What would Lenny say if he found out? Or perhaps, he already knows? The episode is nine months after the last, giving Lenny a little time to settle into his life as pope. Esther has given birth to her miracle child and named the boy Pious. It is very clear that...

The Young Pope: “Episode Five”

The Young Pope: “Episode Five”

Jude Law continues to baffle and amaze in his performance as Pope Pious XIII. Whether speaking kindly to a constituent or threatening those who oppose him, his even tone and calm demeanor is always unsettling. Which perhaps is his most powerful asset in dealing with those around him. And a subtle enjoyment for himself to leave everyone around him guessing at his true motives and intentions. This episode centers around his relationship with Esther, a wife of one of the Swiss guards. The pope has been spending an ample amount of time with the young woman, and many people are beginning to ask questions and make assumptions. Cardinal Voiello...

Movie Review: The Boss

Movie Review: The Boss

From the time I signed up to take the review to the time it was to watch the film, I had completely and utterly forgot what the film was about and who was in it. With this stunning feat of memory loss, I had zero expectations about what I was going into, and that worked very nicely. Starring Melissa McCarthy as Michelle Darnell, we get a woman who has been down and out her whole life. Bounced around from home to home and back again, she was used to having no one to count on but herself, and for a really long time that worked for her. Michelle fought her way to the top and intended on staying there.Unfortunately, insider trading isn’t...
