PROS –
1) Kal Penn & Sean Astin added some freshness with their characters.
2) The D & D Vortex – best episode of this season.

 
CONS –
1) A mediocre finale of a mediocre season. The show should have ended after the fifth season.
2) Even after 12 seasons, the writers were not able to find a proper ending for Raj.

Catch-22 (1970)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 4/5

 

PROS –
1) The huge production value for an almost unadaptable novel from Joseph Heller. It’s the Apocalypse Now (1979) of black-comedy.
2) Great ensemble of actors including Alan Arkin, Jon Voight, Anthony Perkins, Martin Balsam, and a cameo from the legend Orson Welles.
3) The wise old man in whorehouse.
4) Exceptional cinematography and editing.
5) Milo Minderbinder: the embodiment of capitalism mashed with Nazi ideology.
6) Bob Newhart as the reluctant bumbling Major Major 

 

CONS –
1) Needed a better screenplay to keep the audiences hooked.
