Scandal 04×01 ‘Randy, Red, Superfreak, Julia’: Goodbye Harrison

I had not started watching Scandal until last May when I was first introduced to the series. After binge watching seasons one through three within the month, I was hooked and the anticipation for this season was killing me. It’s hard to go from watching episode after episode to waiting every week to see your favourite characters and what they must face. With Olivia and Jake running off, OPA in shambles and the Grants mourning it was a rough time for everyone. But finally Scandal is back and everything picks up four months after the huge events of last season’s finale. Let’s get to it, onto “Randy, Red, Superfreak, Julia!” Read the rest at…

How To Get Away With Murder 01×01 ‘Pilot’: In the law office with the statuette

Last night was the premiere of the highly anticipated show, ‘How to Get Away with Murder’. And all the anticipated was well-deserved. Perhaps, I’m biased because I absolutely adore anything that has to do with Shonda Rhimes, but either way, I digress. This show is going to go far. I can already see that with just the pilot episode.  Read the rest at…

Person of Interest 04×01 ‘Panopticon’: This is war

Another year, another season of Person of Interest. What once started as a seemingly standard ‘case-of-the-week’ cop show has turned into a serialized conspiracy program with the intermittent sprinkling of procedural elements. What does season four have in store for us? The season finale brought the disillusion of Team Machine (Finch, Reese, Shaw & Root) as they abandoned their identities to protect themselves from Samaritan, the much stronger and government-controlled version of The Machine. Not many questions were raised at last season’s climax except for ‘What now?’ Let’s jump into “Panopticon.” Read the rest at…

REVIEW: Ride Along

Ride Along is a predictable buddy cop action-comedy that falls victim to an unoriginal cliched plot filled with more jokes than real story. Although the chemistry of Ice Cube and Kevin Hart is good, Hart‘s manic demeanour becomes overbearing sometimes. The buddy cop genre is terribly cliched but a little more effort in story and characters would have gone a long way to making this a better film.

REVIEW: Need For Speed

Need For Speed is a prototypical racing film filled with a sloppy, disjointed plot and boring stock characters. The film attempts to rely too heavily on the video game franchise it is adapted from, flashy cars and the current success and appeal of the star. This film certainly has a need to speed up its incredibly slow-paced story.

REVIEW: That Awkward Moment

That Awkward Moment is a terribly formulaic and rather lacklustre comedy that subjects the audience to an overused plot, one-dimensional characters and witless, unintelligent jokes. The storyline seems forced for the sake of plot progression filled with boring cliche after cliche. Although the cast is charming, there is little chemistry between Zac Efron and Imogen Poots making their story a bit dull. Overall it is a mediocre film to watch with your buds for the raunchy humour or for your own leisure when you cannot sleep.
