Arrow Grade: D-

Arrow Grade: D-

Seriously, what the frak happened to this show...

Oh, and spoilers...

1) DIRTBIKES...

2) So, we are just going to ignore the fact the emo chick killed an innocent guy in the elevator...

Is that right...

Love Felicity's consistency in her value system...

3) And, while we are on that topic...

Yeah, I know I gave you shite about everything you did...

Watched your actions nearly destroy everyone around you...

But, I'm still gonna do it...

4) You know this show is up crap creek...

When the most poignant moments involve a character named Wild Dog...

Who uses the word Hoss like he's getting paid by the utterance...

5) We are just glossing over the fact that Oliver is an admitted serial killer...

Is that what we are doing...

Okay, moving on...

6) Mr. Terrific...

His superpowers are bad timing and awkward pauses...

But, he is like Super Saiyan when it comes to those things...

7) Diggle has been a vigilante, working above the law for years...

Beats up suspects...

Could care less about due process...

But, let's talk about Lyla...

8) Arrow Season 5...

The year of contradictions and questionable morality...

This is a superhero show...

Right...

9) Focuses a good fifteen minutes on an outdated video game...

That is the level of writing we are dealing with...

Any wonder how we got here...

10)  This show has the same priorities that Legend's does...

Let's use the meta-human with a sonic cry that can pretty much incapacitate or destroy anything in her path...

As little as possible...

Apparently, the next member of Team Arrow should be...

Plot device...

Bonus:  No Flashbacks...

Flash Grade: B

Flash Grade: B

Apparently in 2024...

Barry Allen becomes Eric Draven...

Oh, and spoilers...

1) That is one cold hearted beeotch...

2) Wally West is to Barry...

What Turbo Boost was to K.I.T.T...

And, if you understood that reference...

You may have an unhealthy obsession with David Hasselhoff...

3) Cisco went all Terminator 2...

4) Tell me again...

How the slutty girls in the audience got H.R.'s personal cell phone number...

Is it listed in his books or something...

5) Takes them an entire episode to invent one piece of tech...

Can rebuild S.T.A.R Labs in five minutes...

6) Happy endings...

We are a team again...

Everyone has closure...

Wally is still a vegetable...

Did we all just forget about that...

7) Emo Barry is Emo...

8) Barry didn't think to look away from Top...

It may be the future, Flash...

But you have fought these guys before...

9) Mirror Master can now bend entire buildings without any effect on the actual structure or residents...

And, then they return to normal without a single window broken...

Wow...

Apparently, he can bend reality and common sense too...

By the way...

After future Flash went AWOL...

Did the police just give up too...

Cause it looks like they just gave up too...

10)  By the way...

Savitar is Ronnie...

Send me my check...

#Marvel #ABC #AgentsofShield #Aida #Framework #AgentsofHydra

Fans: You're not going to copy Ultron with this story arc are you...

Writers: No...

Of course not...

The two are totally different...

Ultron became evil after surfing the web and realizing humanity was inferior...

Aida went nutty after reading a book and then realizing humanity was inferior...

Fans: But Ultron tried to make himself human just like Aida is attempting to do...

Writers: Yeah, that's why we ripped off the Matrix...

Fans: Wait...

What...

Writers: Did you see the trailer to Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2...

Fans: Dude...

IT WAS SO AWESOME...

But weren't we talking about something else, though...

Writers: I am Groot...

Oh, and spoilers...

1) So, Aida built in the ability to not only make Daisy an Inhuman but the possibility for her to acquire the same powers she has in the real world...

Who programmed this chick...

The same guys who came up with Windows 10...

2) Good Grant is Boring Grant...

3) One newscast turns the entire world against Hydra...

Love the utter believability of this entire season...

Didn't Supergirl already do the same Shtick with Myriad...

4) After I kill Coulson...

Then I go after Mouse and Squirrel...

C'mon guys...

You know you thought it too...

5) Mace gets a building dumped on him...

Dead...

Aida flies out of a fifteen thousand story window...

She gets a flare up of eczema...

Huh...

6) Because of my programming...

I can't kill humans...

Until I kill humans...

7) Entire world monitored and controlled by Hydra...

Simmons can park a Quinjet on an oil platform with zero cloaking...

Cause...

Writers: She's not the female version of Ultron guys...wait...what...

8) Apparently...

Amazon Shipping is the main security arm of Hydra...

9) We already ripped off the Matrix...

Why not steal a little from V is for Vendetta too...

Who's going to notice...

10) Why does evil Fitz remind me of this bit...

Get it...

Get it...

Okay, moving on...

9. Foxy...

Solving riddles...

The Foxmaster

Foxman...

The Foxinator....

Foxmeister...

What did the Fox say...

Fox-o-rama...

And, if you got that reference...

You remember when SNL was actually funny...

10. Cliche evil twin storyline is cliched...

Supergirl Grade: D-

Supergirl Grade: D-

If it wasn't for Legends...

This would be the worst DC show on the CW...

Oh, and spoilers...

1. Supergirl's only weakness is Kryptonite...

And, nanobots...

And, aliens with lasers that shoot out of their foreheads...

And, cyborgs from Cadmus...

Wait...

What were we talking about again...

2. We went from Gilmore Girls with Capes to Veronica Mars from Krypton in one episode...

3. Mon-El...

The real super girl of the show...

4. Alex free episode...

We had an Alex free episode...

Well, for the most part...

5. Oh good, they brought the Guardian back...

Said, no one...

EVER...

6. Wynn and that Alien chick...

Proving being a geek is sexy on a universal scale...

7. Worst death scene ever...

Well, next to this...



Hey, wait...

That guy looks awfully familiar...

8. If any woman is wearing a Bluetooth device of any kind in National City...

Run like hell...

9. Snapper...

Again, proving the only honest reporter is a product of fiction...

10. BFFs with a Luthor...

What could possibly go wrong...

We all know...

So, don't expect us to be surprised...

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Grade: C

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Grade: C

Still, can't get passed all the glaring plot holes that seem to increase by the episode...

But the remarkable performances of the cast keeps me watching...

Oh, and spoilers...

1. Why would Aida even allow Terrigen Crystals or Inhumans, for that matter, to exist in her Matrix reboot...

2. This whole world had to be created based on Neo...I mean May's inability to exist in it without conflict or none of this will ever make any sense...

3. Ratcliffe told Daisy he installed an escape from the framework...

Bet it's Jackson waiting for them with a handful of red and blue pills...

4. How could Fitz turn so evil...

Have you seen Madame Hydra...

If you were a geek who scored a super hot robot girl...

You'd probably open up an amusement park in Hell to keep her...

5. Grant said he was sorry...

Simmons had the same reaction we all would have...

6. Cliche of building collapsing on hero was cliched...

7. So, let me get this straight...

May was perfectly fine with all that Hydra has done...

It's a Nazi organization...

Tortures and kills innocent people...

Oppresses the entire world...

But suddenly get's pissed because they blow up a building full of kids she never knew were even there...

Really...

REALLY...

Apparently, the greatest enemy to Aida's framework is...

Plot device...

8. Daisy is going to become Quake in the Framework...

Cause it makes as much sense as everything else this season...

9. And, while we are on topic...

If Aida created and controls the Framework...

How again, is she unable to track all of this stuff going on...

Damn you, plot device...

10. The crazy Irishman from Braveheart is Fitz's dad...

I guess they finally took his freedom...

#JustaQuickiePlease: Passengers (2016) Review

The director of the Imitation Game brings us his first attempt at the Science Fiction genre with this Chris Pratt vehicle that is an enjoyable and engaging mix from start to finish.  Lawrence is okay, her range being limited to Mystique and parts not related to Mystique.  For the lion's share, her performance is deeply homogenized but Pratt is still able to bring out the best in her, although there isn't much to work with.   The remaining but limited supporting cast is solid.  Fishbourne is more subtle than normal but it is Sheen's android bartender that steals the show.  Somewhere between the Shining's Barkeep and Sam Malone, his portrayal is quiet but potently entertaining.   The special effects are top shelf, believable and yet awe-inspiring at the same time, highlighting, not overwhelming, a compelling story about isolation, fate, and resolution.  In the end, this film delivers an interesting, albeit not necessarily original, take on the lost in space concept.  And, I must admit, I wasn't exactly sure how it was all going to end up, so any flick that can still surprise me earns extra kudos in my book.  3 out of 5 Kernels; Starlord meets Castaway, of sorts, with a hint of live action Wall-E blended in for good measure.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Grade: C

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Grade: C

Again, love the series...

Not so much the HUGE plot hole...

Ada decides to make a utopia that is, instead, a Hydra nightmare...

Makes absolutely no sense...

Like DC Legends of Tomorrow level no sense....

Unless the key to everything is May...

Then this Marvel Reboot of the Matrix might be a bit more palatable...

Oh, and spoilers...

1. At least Jemma no longer looks like she is auditioning for the new Beetlejuice sequel...

2. Phil Coulson has suddenly become the physical embodiment of Facebook...

But you must try his soap...

3. Is it me...

Or is Grant so much cooler when he is a turncoat bastard...

4. And, while we are on topic...

Why would Ada even allow Grant to exist in her Wunderland...

Or the S.H.I.E.L.D resistance...

Or Mace as the Patriot...

Or people who are subversives...

Or Inhumans...

Or...

Get the point yet...

Seems like she built in her own Thermal Exhaust Port....

Doesn't it...

5. Why do I get the feeling when May finally realizes who she really is...

She is going to go Super Saiyan Linda Carter all up in this place...

6. Okay...

Making Mack a wimp...

Is literally Geek Blasphemy...

Just stop it...

Stop it...

Somebody get this guy his W.O.W rifle, like yesterday...

7. How do we make tough Mace...

Why...

Bruce Willis style five o'clock shadow....

Of course...

8. Quantum level entity...

Acts like love sick pre-teen on Instagram...

It's like Ultron...

If he was trapped on I Carly...

9. How many of you wanted Daisy to get on the elevator and say...

Before we begin, does anyone want to get off...

Missed opportunity Marvel...

Missed opportunity...

10. Fitz has now become Marvel's most complex and brutal villain...

Literally, Hydra would have won everything if this guy was in charge...

Kudos writers, for making me hate the one character every geek could relate to...

The Song of Easter...

A single selfless act.
A death at the hands of friends.
A sacrifice for strangers.

Abandoned by a father,
Betrayed by brothers,
Yet forgiveness is shown even in agony.
And acceptance despite the deepest pain.

An anguish never repeated,
While all barriers were torn asunder.
And the earth trembles in respect.

A carpenters tool becomes a torture.

Splinters torment a tattered form,
In lashes that pierced flesh down to the soul.

Thorns burrow into a brow of peace,
As curses spew from pious lips,
While darkness occupies a sunlit sky.

A few last words shatter history's curse.

A battered form is laid to rest,
On a slab of stone fit for a king.

For three days fate has rested,
Among dancing demons and hate's harvest.

The immortal are forsaken,
An empty throne sits in a quiet sky.

A mother's tears dilute blood and sand.

The faithful tend to the duties of the dead.

A stone loses all its prowess,
As emptiness becomes a sign of hope.

A void brings a call to salvation,
And a task of grace is complete.

Cowardice turns to undaunted courage,
As life rises from a grave of sin.

A savior has proven his sovereignty.

The blind can see the marvelous wonder.
The deaf hears the call of promise.
The mute sing in psalms of worship.
The weak are frail no more.

One God, one Son, one single Sunday.
Man has been given a gift, unearned, undeserved, and irrevocable.

A salvation provided only by a single act of unimaginable love.

John 11:25-26
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies. And everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die."

Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Grade: B-

 Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Grade: B-

Love the episode...

Hate the massive plot hole that subtracts from some remarkable performances...

And, kinda directly rips off another property...

Let's discuss, shall we...

Oh, and spoilers...

1. Super sentient artificial lifeform can create an inescapable utopia but instead, her "Framework" is filled with conflict and chaos that makes it incredibly fragile...

The Fanboys suddenly cry out...

But, she had to do that to contain May...

Ladies and gentleman...

It's official...

Welcome to Marvel's reboot of the Matrix...

Just waiting for Sam Jackson to become motherf$&king Morpheus...

2. C'mon Ada...

Does Grant have to be a screw up even in fantasy land...

That's harsh...

3. Fitz...

Is it safe...

And if you got that reference...

You just seriously Leveled Up...

4. If all zombies look like Jemma...

Bring on that damn apocalypse now...

5. Gotta love Tahiti...

It truly is a magical place...

Kudos on the full circle writers...

Kudos...

6. So wanted those guys from Hydra to totally go all Agent Smith on Skye...

Daisy...

Oh, whatever...

7. That Radio Shack escape button didn't work...

Who'd a thunk it...

8. If Ada knows everything that is going on...

Why then...

Is everything going on...

9. We all knew Fitz was eventually going to bang the robot...

We all knew...

10. That Hydra statue in the lobby, though...

Bonus: Vijay just can't catch a break can he...

Sister kills him in the real world...

Gets his arse kicked in the VR world...

What did this guy do to the writers....

#ABC #Marvel #Agents #AgentsofShield #AgentsofHydra #SupporttheShow #Framework

DC Legends of Tomorrow Grade: F to the Infinitesimal power...

DC Legends of Tomorrow Grade: F to the Infinitesimal power...

Wow...

Just WOW...

They exceeded even my expectations...

And, if you have read my earlier reviews, regarding this show, you already know that is NOT a good thing...

Oh, and spoilers...

1. The best part of the episode...

All of the Legends died...

The worst part of the episode...

All of the Legends didn't really die...

2.  Who else wanted Eobard to chant Kalimaaa when he ripped out Ray's heart...

C'mon...

Don't even act like you didn't...

3. So...

Tell me why again, the Reverse Flash Armada didn't just kill everyone and take the spear...

Oh, that's right...

Eobard's greatest enemy is...

No, not Zoom or the Black Flash...

It's plot device...

4. Still wondering how the Spear of Destiny had zero effect on the remaining CW Universe...

5. To sum up the last 2 minutes of the show...

Let's just throw a bunch of bullshite together that in some way or another references to time travel...

And, still not have it affect the rest of the CW Universe...

6. When did Laurel become the Fraking Yoda of the CW Universe...

7. Cliched bad guy speech....

Oh, Frak me....

Nevermind....

8. Dual Legends...

How can that much stupid exist in that finite of a space...

9. Like matter cannot occupy the same space...

Unless you are on this show...

Great Scott...

10. The Legion of Doom....

A bit overexaggerated...

The Trio of Temporary Inconvenience would be more fitting....

Bonus: Grandma Vixen is going to stay with the Legends and let the future be damned...

Was this supposed to be a plot twist...

Cause the whole honoring the integrity of time was never really an issue with this group...

Oh...

And how does Barry feel about these guys screwing up with the timeline without ANY ramifications...

This...
