The Twilight Zone (2019) (Season 1)

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

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) “The Comedian” – Best episode of the season. Tracy Morgan’s cameo was spot-on.
2) “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” – a story with a climactic plot-twist.
3) “The Blue Scorpion” – entertaining story of a legendary gun.

 

 

CONS –
1) “Replay”, “The Wunderkind”, “Point of Origin” – These 3 episodes are simply propaganda stories of Trump-era USA exploring issues of Black Lives Matter, US Presidential Election 2016, and Trump’s immigration reforms.
2) “A Traveler”, “Six Degrees of Freedom”, “Not All Men” – forgettable stories no one can make head nor tail of.
3) “Blurryman” – the finale tried to milk the iconic “Time Enough at Last” but to no avail.

 

 

QUOTE –
Narrator: Society is a fragile ecosystem. Razzle and dazzle people with the right lies and eventually they’ll go blind to the madness right in front of their faces.

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

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) As funny as the prequel. A new plot for the sequel instead of recycling the same story.
2) Jennifer Aniston as Dr. Julia is as impressive as before. Kevin Spacey prison visits were hilarious.
3) The wobbling trio of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day ensures the audiences will get their money’s worth.
4) A good supporting cast including Christoph Waltz & Jonathan Banks. Chris Pine as Rex surprises in his comedic role. Jamie Foxx as MF Jones returns for one hell of a police car chase

 

CONS –
N/A

DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) Seth Gordon’s laugh-riot about three employees trying to murder their respective bosses with the help of a video bootlegger called “MF” Jones. That’s how you make a good black-comedy movie.
2) Jennifer Aniston as Dr. Julia. She still keeps on surprising the audiences with her various shades.
3) Great supporting cast completed with Kevin Spacey & Colin Farrell.
4) Even in the presence of Jason Sudeikis & Jason Bateman, Charlie Day as Dale clearly stole the show.
5) End credits: How You Like Me Now? (The Heavy song)

 
CONS –
N/A

Verdict – 0/5

Pros –

N/A

 

Cons –

1) A movie so clueless that it wasn’t even able to pull off decent cameo plot for David Hasselhoff & Pamela Anderson.Absolute disaster.
2) A so-called comedy movie where you end up killing Hannibal Buress.
3) Dick jokes from stone-age
4) Priyanka Chopra as Victoria Leeds – a weak fancy annoying character with zero scope
5) For the director Seth Gordon, another reason to quit hollywood.
