  1. That's the same reason I didn't like Don't Breathe. There was no one to root for. Rocky and her friends were breaking and entering with the intention of stealing money from a blind man. And, of course, Stephen Lang turned out to be a murderous psycho. So, it was well made, but I wasn't invested in the outcome.
  2. I love The A-Team movie. I thought it was true to the spirit of the show while still updating it. And I liked Face in the movie more than I did on the show. Original Face tended to be whiny and prissy and made me wonder how he ever survived Vietnam.
  3. It pains me to have to say that I liked Doctor Who best (the new version) under RTD's reign, but I still haven't forgiven him for the way he destroyed Torchwood and his childish response to that criticism. I never saw the original QAF, but I thought the Showtime series was fine for the most part (Michael and his mom were pretty obnoxious). So, I'm torn on whether or not I'll be into this. Maybe once I see some casting news or a trailer.
  4. I quit Once Upon a Time way back in season two because I could no longer stand the "poor Regina" mentality of the show.
  5. Agreed. I think Dogma would have been so much better if they had cast literally anyone besides Linda Fiorentino. She just drags the movie down when everyone else around her is doing great.
  6. I never liked Mike either. He's not compelling at all to me.
  7. Mr. Keating did point this out to him. It ultimately made no difference to him. What broke Neil was his dad pulling him out of school and sending him to military school. And I'm certainly no expert, but I don't think people who commit suicide are always thinking rationally. He was 17. Emotions run high. He'd finally done something he wanted to do and his dad shut him down like he'd always done. That happened to me with West Side Story. 10 year old me could not wrap my head around it when it ended the way it did. Agreed on his dad. I do feel sorry for his mother though. She seemed sympathetic to her son. She was just unable to stand up to her husband. It being the 50s, kind of understandable. But, yeah, I hope the dad spends the rest of his miserable life feeling guilty as hell. I hated him. The person I feel the most sorry for is Todd. The two people who had gotten him out of his shell and appreciated him for who he was were gone. Keating fired. Neil dead. He'd lost the only good things he had. Even Charlie was expelled at the end. I'm glad he was strong enough to stand up for Keating at the end and hope he kept that strength and made a great life for himself. Poor kid. And yeah, both Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard had such baby faces. I love this movie. It's one of my favorites.
  8. I have two theories. 1) it was mostly the spell messing with her emotions. 2) she's feeling kind of clingy with Doc since she doesn't have Dolls anymore. As for Waverly, I thought the episode concluded that her father was an angel. At least that's what everyone on Tumblr has taken away from the episode.
  9. It is cool that they added Kate. However, I really can't picture her surviving beyond this season. I'm happy to be proven wrong. I always, always, always love hearing more tidbits about Wyatt and about Doc's past. I'm still holding out for a full flashback episode about Wyatt. Even though his actual death seemed tacked on, at least this entire episode was dedicated to Dolls. I particularly liked Nicole telling Wynonna that she's not the only one hurting because she was really cruel to Jeremy. How is him keeping Dolls secret at his request different than Wynonna keeping Michelle's secret from Waverly? I do like that they've set up a story for every character this year. Though, I guess it's just another example of how they either didn't know what to do with Dolls or didn't care to do anything with him.
  10. Same here. Good God, the WE fandom is a dull place because all anybody ever talks about is WayHaught. They are the least interesting part of the show to me. It's mainly because I think Dominique is the worst actor on the show. I cringe at nearly every line she delivers.
  11. I'm sorry. I can't remember. It was from quite a while back. Midway into season one, I believe. I've never watched Supergirl, so I'll take everyone's word for it on that one. The biggest show I know this was a problem on was Sleepy Hollow. I've never seen a show so determined to destroy itself like that one did. Literally, all fans were asking was that Abby be treated like the lead character she started as. And the powers that be stubbornly refused all the way to their cancellation. I'm so baffled by that entire situation.
  12. So, if you can tell by my icon, I'm a fan of Doc Holliday in any form of media. I went through a period in my teen years where I watched any Wyatt Earp/OK Corral movie I could find because I was obsessed to see all the Doc portrayals. The only reason I started watching this show was because I was so tickled that Doc was a part of it. So, he is my favorite character for reasons that predate this show. And yes, I ship him and Wynonna. Having said that, based on the first season, I was 100% certain she would end up with Dolls. They seemed to have this kind of deep connection and they obviously had feelings for each other that they couldn't express because of...IDK, reasons I guess. And Doc was meant to be a temporary fling or the loser of the triangle. It wasn't until the very end of season 1, I thought she and Doc were forming a more emotional bond. Plus, I vaguely remember Emily Andras addressing the triangle by saying something like "everyone chooses a lawman in the end." So, I accepted that Wynonna/Dolls were endgame. Perhaps that was naive of me. It never occurred to me that they wouldn't end up together because Dolls is black. I watched Lost Girl and I saw what happened to Hale. I should have known better. (BTW, I'm still pissed about that. He and Kensi had like three scenes together as an actual couple and then BOOM, he's dead. That relationship was so mishandled). I'm not sure what happened in season two, but they definitely seemed to change their minds about what they were originally doing with Dolls. He didn't have any authority anymore and aside from the kiss and the spooning, they dropped the Wynonna/Dolls romantic stuff. Maybe it was the pregnancy and making Doc the father just made sense. So, that inevitably gives Wynonna and Doc more of a connection than they previously had. Even now that they've given her up, she's still something they both have and they both love. No one else can get it like they do. But, that's just a guess. I honestly don't know why they seemed to shift away from Wynonna/Dolls to Wynonna/Doc but that's the vibe I got from last season. Dolls barely had anything to do last year. Which is weird because the season started off about him in a lot of ways. Once they got him back, he was just in the background. This didn't really hit me until the season finale last year. He was barely in it. The season finale and the supposed male lead had nothing to do in it. So, if Shamier wanted to leave, maybe he was dissatisfied with how his character had stagnated. They spend a lot of time in the first season hinting at a huge backstory for him and they never really got into it. In a vacuum, I'm fine with this. Dolls was never a favorite of mine and yeah, I ship the other pairing in the triangle. However, I do acknowledge there is a larger issue here. Even if Shamier wanted to be killed off. They had two episodes this season to do it properly. They could have had a two episode mini-arc all about him and really let him go out in a blaze of glory. It felt like an afterthought. Not a true goodbye to a main character. When I think of great character deaths, this one won't even crack the top 20. I'm not sure what this is meant to accomplish either. To make Wynonna depressed? She's already depressed about Alice. Piling it on like this is just pointless.
  13. I agree. Yes, this has a different tone than the first one but I don't really care. I like the first one too. I remember being really creeped out by the beginning when I was a little kid. But, I think the concept of this one is fun and I'm looking forward to it.
