    It's a solidly entertaining show for a network sitcom. It gets a little silly & off track in the latest season, but there's only so much that can be done with the premise. It definitely ends up...

    I was somewhat mixed about it. I found the overall story to be compelling, and I really liked John Turturro (defense lawyer) and Bill Camp's (detective) characters, but the visual style & pacing of...

    All I know is Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk looked like absolute trash to me at 120fps. If I recall correctly there was only one shot in the entire movie where I wasn't bothered by the frame-rate....

    I enjoyed the movie for what it was (at least the first 2/3 of the movie), but it definitely has issues. It's too long for a largely inconsequential story, and Han doesn't really have the charisma of...

    I enjoyed the film a lot, except for the villain.

    Having only seen the trailer, I am very skeptical. Yes, Alden Ehrenreich has a passing resemblance to young Harrison Ford, but I don't get any sense of the charm & charisma that defines who Han Solo...
