The Boys (Season 1)

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

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) A world where very familiar super-heroes with shady origins are working for a corporate.
2) Eric Kripke chose the perfect subject for his latest project. We live in a time where comic-book superheroes are having their golden-era in Hollywood thanks to MCU. Kudos to Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for their 3rd consecutive super-hero black-comedy after Preacher and Future Man.
3) Antony Starr as Homelander. The mash-up of Superman and Captain America is the most fascinating character of all the “Supes”. Flight 37 sequence was most-shocking scene of this season.

 
CONS –

Butcher: What’s Sporty Spice up to?
MM: Who?
Butcher: Sporty fucking Spice. What is she up to?
MM: I don’t know.
Butcher: Exactly. How about Posh? You know what she’s doing?
MM: I don’t understand.
Butcher: Making clothes for anorexics. Right? Not exactly a growth market.And Baby? You know what she’s doing?
Fuck all. Not even page six of the Daily Mail.And Scary Spice? Up to her eyeballs in lawsuits and sex tapes. Ginger, on the other hand, has released three albums. Passion, Schizophonic and Scream If You Wanna Go Faster. They’ll all make your ears bleed. You see, when they’re apart, they’re absolute fucking rubbish. But, you put them together, they’re the goddamn fucking Spice Girls.

MM: How do you know so much about the Spice Girls?

VERDICT – 0/5

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) The only bearable scenes of the movie are between O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Seth Rogen.
2) Andy Serkis as Parker Wembley – unrecognizable in that makeup.

 
CONS –
1) While the complete movie was already ruined in the trailer, I decided to watch it anyway for the sake of Seth Rogen but the movie is a big bag of disappointment.

Future Man (Season 2)

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

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) Wolf’s entire adventure in NAG was the best part of this season
2) An unpredictable surreal time-travel saga spanning different eras where the characters forget about the actual quest and are lost in their own petty errands.
3) The show is terribly under-rated. Just like the first season, it’s fast-paced, witty and full of pop culture references.
4) Stu & Tiger on MARS.
5) Seth Rogen’s cameo in the finale. The finale confirms that in a time-travel adventure, things will always go from bad to worst. And we are ready for more in the next season.

 
CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
Wolf: In prison, he was my friend. He gave me a rock hammer and I used it to dig a hole, bit by bit every night, to make my escape.
Level: How did they not see the hole?
Wolf: Oh, well, that was the great part. He also gave me a sexy poster to hang on the wall to cover the hole.
Hatchet: They let you have a poster?
Lathe: That seems implausible.
Wolf: Well, I helped them out with their taxes. But [stammers], that’s not important.

Preacher (Season 3)

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

Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –
1) Best season so far. While most of the season 2 was spent at Denis’ dilapidated house, this season was at Angelville. Probably the best supernatural black-comedy on TV right now.
2) Exciting new characters like Satan and Allfather were introduced however Betty Buckley as Marie “Gran’ma” L’Angelle and Colin Cunningham as T.C. will take the top spot.
3) Each episode was better than the previous one with the story unfolding with new subplots and new characters.

 

Cons –
1) “Les Enfants du Sang” – this entire sub-plot for Cassidy was boring.

Verdict – 0/5

Pros –
N/A

 

Cons –
1) This so-called comedy movie about a father-daughter bonding over a road-trip is an utter waste of time. I’m feeling cheated after watching this 98 minutes torture without a single moment of laughter. There is no chemistry between stone-faced Kelsey Grammer and plastic faced Kristen Bell.
2) Even Seth Rogen’s extended cameo can’t save this disaster.
3) Lauren Miller directorial debut is drenched with mediocrity and cliched jokes. Diversity is shoved down viewers’ throat where the father-daughter duo is surrounded by a gay couple, an old couple, and a black couple. Hopefully, this talentless director will cease her future endeavors with this movie itself.
4) Worst possible supporting cast.

The Disaster Artist (2017)

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

 

Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –

 

1) The cast – full of talented actors.Especially Seth Rogen & Josh Hutcherson – small roles but you’ll crack every time you see them on screen.
2) Ed Wood – 2017 Version
3) The alley scene with Zac Efron

 

Cons –

 

1) The humor in the movie comes from the caricature what Tommy Wiseau is, however, there are very few scenes where the movie is actually funny.If a person watches this movie without any knowledge of The Room or Tommy Wiseau it’s gonna be very difficult for him to enjoy it.
2) Almost all funny scenes of the movie are already spoiled in the trailer.
