Reviewed by Ms. Critic After throwing back some Midol and curling up with the heating pad, I turned to the trusty tele to find some comfort. It was actually Mr. Critic who selected these movies from Netflix, probably from my prompts of wanting to see more “girl movies”. Let me confess one thing before I […]

So this year only two songs have been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song: “Man or Muppet” and “Real in Rio”. Take a listen. Real in Rio Man or Muppet First let me say, I am disappointed that there are only two songs. Either the Academy needs to change their rules or […]

Yes, that’s right. Mister Critic is back to biz-natch and ready to blog it up. Here’s a little something to break the ice and get us back into the swing of things.

Thirtysomething, 24 Years Later

Reviewed by Ms. Critic I’ve been caught up. Swept away to a world not too different from my own, watching Thirtysomething on Netflix has been my dirty little secret. The first taping of Thirtysomething was in 1987. So you’d think that something created so long ago, a silly sitcom would really not resonate with a […]

Reviewed by Ms. Critic I looked around for a chair not too close to someone while I discreetly tuck the cover around the book. This was not a book you really want to be reading in public. Well I guess you can, but people may think you are kooky. A book all about dead people…cadavers. […]

I love this scene from Magnolia. The director, P.T. Anderson, is so creative, and brave given the risks he takes in his creativity. This scene, set to the song “Wise Up” by Aimee Mann, is so random and unexpected, yet it fits perfectly within the movie by pulling all these very different characters together into […]

Reviewed by Mister Hand Just when I was hoping to cut back on my TV intake and start doing more productive things with my life like read or develop a new hobby, AMC (aka Awesome Movie Channel) decides to bring the Undead genre back to life. I already love Mad Men and now we have […]

Reviewed by Little Miss Critic What is the television show about? It is about things that seems not possible at all, but sometimes they are possible. They ask if it is possible or not. You have think if it is possible or not. Give me an example: Like a robot that can babysit your kids […]

Evil by Interpol

Reviewed by Mister Critic Here is a good video to watch right before you go to bed. I don’t suggest watching it alone or in the dark. I love this song and the lyrics, but there is something unnatural about that puppet. However, I can’t look away. He haunts me. I implore you to tell […]
