RoboCop (2014) – Jose Padiha

The other remake I watched this week, after the Evil Dead debacle, was the new Robocop. Lacking the over-the-top violence and comic book nature, not to mention the skewering social commentary of the original, there’s not a lot to redeem this film. And I feel sorry for viewers who come to this one first without…

The Killing – Season 3 So Far

  Since I’ve been abysmal at keeping up with recapping each episode this season, I thought I would just leave it until the finale and talk abou the whole thing at that point. But THEN I watched episode 9: Reckoning, and it was all I could do to not start a post while I was…

The Killing – S3 Premiere The Jungle and That You Fear The Most

  I have to admit, as gutted as I was when The Killing was cancelled after a brilliant and heart-breaking second season, I actually never thought that the day would come when I could see Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) back on my screen. I am ecstatic to have been wrong…

The Killing – Day 26 – What I Know

  First of all, I am sorry this has taken so long to write.  This past week has been ridiculous with work and, to be honest, I was such an emotional mess after the finale that even now I am having trouble expressing how much I loved it, the whole series, and everyone who had…

The Killing – Final Theories On Rosie’s Killer

  Alright, I’ve been going through theories like a madwoman pretty much since episode one, back when I went with the old X-Files mainstay – TRUST NO ONE. That mantra could actually be applied in this case, as well.  While not everyone is involved in Rosie Larsen’s murder, I’m pretty sure everyone has some dirty…

The Killing – Day 25 – Donnie or Marie

  This show is KILLING me!!!  So so good – every episode has been amazing, and there was so much going on this week that I had a hard time falling asleep after! Let’s just jump right in, shall we? The key card Linden found on the 10th floor belongs to someone in Richmond’s camp. …

The Killing – Day 24 – Bulldog

  Okay, we are now mere DAYS away from finding out who killed Rosie Larsen, and I am practically sick with anticipation, so this is going to be one scattered post!  I can’t even really bring myself to focus on the events of this episode, because my mind is a-flurry with theories and thoughts right…

The Killing – Day 23 – 72 Hours

  Wow.  This episode, I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat for parts of it, and by the time the familiar tension-building, end-coming theme music came on, I was cursing how very wired and awake I was!  So great!  Some spoilers below, so don’t read if you haven’t seen it yet and…

The Killing – Day 22 – Sayonara, Hiawatha

  Before I begin gushing about how much Holder ROCKED this episode, let me attempt to talk about some of the other characters and moments I also loved!  In no particular order, of course. Darren Richmond – he is really back on his political horse now, and so far looks to be somehow more able…

The Killing – Day 21 – Off The Reservation

  I don’t know about you guys, but I found this to be one of the most heart-wrenching episodes of the season so far.  Between watching Linden search for Holder with the same fervor she’s used in her quest to find Rosie’s killer, to watching Stan Larsen’s face as he interviewed that last witness…so many…

The Killing – Day 20 – Keylela

  Poor Holder.  He’s not even surprised anymore when Linden kicks him out of the car, but he’s definitely not going quietly anymore.  The respect and genuine care between these two characters becomes more and more evident with each passing episode, and now, even when they argue, their words may cut deeper, but you get…

The Killing – Day 18 – Ghosts Of The Past

  Gah! This show! It just keeps getting better and better every week! I’m finding that there is so much going on now – with everyone – that it’s really no longer about who killed Rosie Larsen anymore. Yes, I want to find out, and my brain is still spinning on all the new information…
