Cringe, Cringe, Cringe and Did I Mention Cringe?
Yes, all that cringe and more! The show has a great premise but that's all. It's painful to watch. I managed to get through he first episode only because I took it in doses. Again Hollywood misses the central tenant of story-telling: You have to feel empathy for at least one of the characters. The characters are loathsome; none have any redeeming qualities. I even wanted to smack Paco upside the head for being so cringe-worthy. Is this some writer's idea of what cool, hipster millennial are like? Well, if they are, civilization is doomed.
Strange Impersonation (1946)
Blubbery, Pasty-faced...Love Idol?
I normally love B pictures but this film was so cringe-inducing, it made my teeth ache. I know we're supposed to suspend disbelief but I'd need a whopping dose of the "Girl Chemist's" anesthesia to become brain-dead enough to accept this plot. There were so many agonizing aspects so I'll just mention the 2 that gave me a headache: the over-the-top scene when Jane Kanaski comes to call (so subtle) and the casting of William Gargan as a Hunky Catch. Gargan is so off-putting he made me uncomfortable watching as I could almost feel his soft, puffy, sweaty hands.
Ugh. This guy is still, "Look at me, look at me!"
I couldn't get past 23 minutes. Jayson Blair himself dominates the beginning so don't expect anything hard-hitting. He's still making excuses and begging for attention. The initial coverage in this film is almost glowing. He's a complete and total loser. Don't waste your money; no suspense, no tension, just Jason, Jason, Jason.
False Arrest (1991)
Donna Mills deserved the gas chamber for those outfits!
This flick was so very, very bad it was hilarious. How Stephen Bauer ever got work in Hollywood again is a miracle. His swaggering was so heavy, I was afraid he'd topple over. He even had the James Dean undershirt with rolled up sleeves. He was effective, though; just by saying, "you'd better talk now", criminals immediately confessed. This film had it all: garish 90s outfits (OMG, that purple!), sleazy neon motel, run-down cafe and criminals with heavy New York accents. Two questions will haunt me forever: what was the town that was so bad it had to be named twice and was Donna Mills supposed to be a doctor? I hope not for the patient's sake: those outfits could easily have stroked out half the population of Scottsdale.
Ordeal by Innocence (2018)
When Will Writers Remember That You Have to Like the Characters?
Only made it 40 minutes into Episode 1. I thoroughly disliked every single character. Since I felt this, I didn't give 2 hoots what happened to them. And could've it been more boring? I can't think how.
