Ultimo Tango a Parigi (1972)

Maria Schneider as Jeanne

Maria Schneider as Jeanne

Watching a movie catalogued as a great one is always a big problem. Either you share the ideas of the people who liked the movie, or you will hate it. And just like people loved “Lost in Translation” and I hated it, I did not like as well this one. I see it very alike to “Lost in Translation”, where a cute girl explains why I watched until the end. With the bonus of having Maria Schneider nude. But still, couldn’t give more than 2 in 10 at IMDB.

Noah (2014)

Noah 2014

No idea why so much talking about Noah. I am sure it was not because of Emma Watson, not so good acting. Also, the computer graphics are quite messy. I know the director and writer built from the Bible story, and added their own ideas to the plot. But the story would allow for so much more… and if in the Bible some issues are not explained, and do not make sense, is this movie a lot of other were added. Why the watchers? Were them really needed? Sorry, did not like. 3 in 10 for me.

Castle (Season 8)

Alexis and Richard Castle @ Castle, Season 8

Alexis and Richard Castle @ Castle, Season 8

And the Castle series just ended. I will miss it. Quite fun, with interesting stories. Some of them with some holes, but most of them were good. The main characters were fun, and well constructed. And, of course, I will miss those Alexis eyes.

Regarding this season, I must say the episodes were quite good, and the last episodes shown that good stories could still be made, keeping the “umbrella story” in a halt. The last episode was a great season finale. But no, not a good Series finale. They say that they did not have much time. But it was bad. Quite bad. Of course we can imagine a course, but that is not our job, but the directors job. Finally, even the “umbrella story” got missing details. OK, the “LokSat” was found, but his story was not told. What were his motives? All that conspiracy should have a good reason. Shame…

Modern Family (Season 7)

Modern Family (season 7)

Modern Family (season 7)

Although I finished this season some weeks ago, I did not notice there were no more episodes. The fact of every episode having a different story, with minimal umbrella story (the one that glues episodes together), and the lack of a season finale are the reasons for missing it.

In any case, Modern Family continues as good as it was. I still think that Alex Dumphy deserves an episode meeting Sheldon at Caltech (even being two different producers, why not?) and I think Manny, like above, is deserving a chance with a girl. Not necessarily a hot blonde, but I feel for him. Probably because I think I deserve this chance too…

Fishing Naked (2015)

Fishing Naked

Fishing Naked

Just another crappy movie. Fishing Naked has nothing, or almost nothing to do with fishing or naked. It is about Big Foot and this strange creature you can see above. The story is not interesting, the pace of the movie is too slow, and without any real interest. No idea why I downloaded it in the first place. Took about a month to complete it. Crap.

The Big Bang Theory (Season 9)

The Big Bang Theory continues to be fun, even with all the marriages. And I continue envying Raj… two cute girlfriends…

I do not have much more to say this time. Waiting for Season 10!

Slitherlink

Slitherlink

Usually I do not play much on my Android phone. But when waiting for someone or something, to have a good puzzle is worth it.

Slitherlink, as you can look up in the Internet, is not an idea of this app author. It is a known puzzle, and if you look up in Google Play, you will notice a few implementations.

I can’t say that this one is the best, as I did not test any other. But it installed correctly, runs smoothly, and seems to have some good diversity of modes and difficulty levels. Therefore, I am quite happy with it, happy enough to consider buying the ad-free version, with extra levels. Truth be said, the free version includes a good mount of levels, and ads are not intrusive. So, kudos for that.

About the game, it is up to you to read about it and test it. It can be seen as some sort of minesweeper, with some reasoning mechanisms also used in sudoku.

American Mary (2012)

American Mary

American Mary

American Mary is a horror movie that could be tricky to watch if I didn’t had a degree on grotesque with Hannibal series. So, yeah, expect grotesque. More grotesque than blood, more grotesque than horror itself.

I can’t say the movie is great. But as some good moments. For those, the 6 I gave at IMDB. But for that classification I was forgetting some veeerryyyy slooooww scenes that are not needed to get in the right mood. A little less would be enough.

If you like grotesque, if you like to see a cute girl in blood, then this might be for you. But be warned.

The Intern (2015)

Anne Hathaway @ The Intern

Anne Hathaway @ The Intern

Not much to say about the movie. A romantic comedy, and no, the romance was not between Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. It is a fund movie to watch. a few slow scenes, but mostly enjoyable to watch.

Also was interesting to see Adam DeVine out of Modern Family, and Andrew Rannells out of Girls. And those who know me, know that the fact of having Anne Hathaway around made me stick. Yes, she is very cute.

How It Is Made – Dream Cars – Season 2

Koenigsegg One:1

Koenigsegg One:1

And I get to the end of the second season. As I said when writing about the first season, the episodes start to be quite similar ones to the others. For this season, I liked more the episode on Tesla Model S, because being electric it is completely different from the other cars. Also, the Koenigsegg episode was cool given the machine it refers to.

Not sure if I will watch the next season soon, but at least the first episode, about BMW i8, makes me want to watch. But I might finish some other series first.
