This A Home Invasion, Jive Mother

A very good “Community” this week. Worked for me a lot more than “Remedial Chaos Theory.”
“Community” 3×5: “Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps”

Review: Anonymous

Not good at all.

Chop Busted, Fellow Adult

Really fun, inventive episode.
“Community” 3×4: “Remedial Chaos Theory”

I’m Offering You An Opportunity For Revenge

Another phenomenal season. This is the best show I’ve ever had the privilege of reviewing weekly.
“Breaking Bad” 4×13: “Face Off”

Your Love Is Weird And Toxic

“Community” 3×3: “Competitive Ecology”

Review: The Ides of March

Very strong political story. It feels wrong to call it a “thriller,” though I know it’s being advertised as such. But there are no car chases or men with black hats. It’s just a bunch of guys fighting for power.

Review: Dream House

Pretty bad. The AMC Studio 30 on Dunvale had typically crappy presentation, too, with the image spreading well past the top and sides of the screen. I complained twice to no avail. The manager gave me a free pass, but I won’t be using it because I only go to that theater when required to do so for screenings. I didn’t like sitting through a movie I couldn’t see that well, but I took comfort in the fact that the movie was so bad that I (sadly) wasn’t missing much.

No More Prolonging The Inevitable

Great table-setter with some awesome suspense. It’s been a predictably strong season. Looking forward to the finale.
