"LOST" FANS ILLUSIONS ABOUT KATE AUSTEN

I just discovered that six years after ABC’s "LOST" left the air, many fans are still harboring illusions about the Kate Austen character. Why? Because she was portrayed by Evangeline Lilly, the show’s leading lady? Did Kate being the leading female character was a reason why so many made excuses for her mistakes and crimes? What exactly did Kate do? Well . . . let’s see: Read more... )

FAN PERCEPTION OF ANA-LUCIA CORTEZ

I have a confession to make. I did not watch the ABC series “LOST” from the beginning. In fact, I did not start watching the series until (2.02) “Adrift”, the second episode of Season Two. However, I could barely maintain interest in the show, until the Season Two episode, (2.04) “Everybody Hates Hugo”. Read more... )

"PRINCE OF PERSIA: SANDS OF TIME" (2010) Review

When the Disney movie, "PRINCE OF PERSIA", was first released in theaters some six years ago, I had heard a movie reviewer on radio talk show compare the Disney film to the 1962 Oscar winning film, "LAWRENCE OF ARABIA". Much to the detriment of the Disney film. And as I sat there and listened to this guy bash "PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME", it occurred to me that there were still plenty of idiots in this world . . . including radio disc jockeys.

"THE ADVENTURES OF HUCK FINN" (1993) Review

Looking back, I realized that I have seen very few movie and television adaptations of Mark Twain's novels - especially those that featured his two most famous characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. I take that back. I have seen a good number of adaptations, but it has been a long time since I have viewed any of them. Realizing this, I decided to review the 1993 Disney adaptation of Twain's 1885 novel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn".Read more... )

"LOST": The Death of Nathan

(2.07) ”The Other 48 Hours” is the 31st episode of ”LOST” that aired on November 16, 2005. This episode featured the Tail Section passengers of Oceanic Air Flight 815 and the story of their first forty-eight (48) days on the island. A controversy popped out from nowhere in this episode and it featured a fellow survivor named Nathan, whose death led to a barrage of criticism aimed at another character – Ana-Lucia Cortez, portrayed by Michelle Rodriguez.

"STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS" (2015) Review

During the fall of 2012, the media and many film fans were stunned by news of filmmaker George Lucas' sale of his production company, Lucasfilm, to the Walt Disney Company. I was flabbergasted. However, this sale led to Disney's plans to continue Lucas' "STAR WARS" movie saga with future releases, television shows, novels and comic stories. Read more... )

CAPTAIN SWAN AND "ONCE UPON A TIME" FANDOM

Ever since the Season Five episode (5.08) "Birth" aired on "ONCE UPON A TIME", I have come across a barrage of posts explaining why the Emma Swan/Killian Jones aka Captain Hook relationship is poison. Worse, most of these posts seemed to blame Killian for what was wrong with their relationship. Read more... )

"THE CELEBRATION OF MEDIOCRITY AND UNORIGINALITY IN “STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS"

Look … I liked the new “STAR WARS” movie, “THE FORCE AWAKENS”. I honestly do. Heck, I feel it is better than J.J. Abrams’ two “STAR TREK” films. But I am astounded that this film has garnered so much acclaim. It has won the AFI Award for Best Picture. It has been nominated by the Critics Choice Award for Best Picture. Read more... )

"TRAPPED BY A TITLE"

I feel sorry for Emma Swan. I may not like her very much at the moment. But I do feel sorry for her. More importantly, she has become, since Season Two, one of the most frustrating characters on "ONCE UPON A TIME". Which is probably why I have just written my third or fourth article about her.
