Falling Skies: "Pope Breaks Bad" (Season 5, Episode 4)

That's an awful title, isn't it? About as subtle as a meat cleaver. What's ironic is that this episode, one moronic story-telling artifice aside, isn't bad. It does, however, seem to waste time they may not have in this final season.



This is Marvel’s smallest movie yet, and that’s a good thing. Ant-man just isn’t the stuff of epic, universal Sturm und Drang. This movie is about a small circle of people trying to solve family dilemmas while stopping a bad guy from selling game-changing technology to even worse people. It’s got plenty of state-of-the-art special effects, but for the most part they’re rather nicely in the background.


Terminator Genisys

Why am I watching this movie?

No offense to anyone who likes it, or who finds it a perfectly acceptable summer action flick. But Terminator comes from one of the most respected cinematic lineages around. It launched James Cameron and T2 is pretty much the Mitochondrial Eve of every summer blockbuster made these days. So why do the repeated attempts at a Terminator franchise seem so pointless?
