The Gifted (2017)
Promising idea, but just meh...
I wasn't captivated by the show. I think it suffers of the same problems of other current super hero shows: the writing. Some lines of dialogue are unnecessary (If someone just had an obvious meltdown, there is not need to ask "Are you ok?"). Something that I just don't get is people with super powers sunning away instead of using the powers.
I also find particularly annoying is the Strukers, especially the parents, so dramatic and unnecessarily over protective, wanting to "help" but not by letting their kids use their powers. I find the mom particularly guilty of this in almost every scene that she is in (which again, is mainly the poor writing).
This show has so much potencial, but so far is being wasted. Comic book based shows need to be written by comic book writers or at least by people familiar with the style. soap operish drama should stay in soap operas.
Drama yes, Comedy no
This is a entertaining show, an easy drama with colorful characters, but this is not a comedy. I think that a chow to be considered a comedy needs funny thing happening in every episode or at least to be relaxing and feel good. Some funny moments in one episode on the second season it's not enough.
I like Alison Brie's character. She is a good actor with charm.
It's all about Bill
Bill Hatter's charm spills all over this series. It's weird, entertaining, and the funny moments are genuinely funny, to the point that they in a strange way lighten the dark ones. The characters are interesting and even the "bad guys" have some likability, except Sally - I dislike that kind of people IRL and therefore dislike them in movies and TV shows.
Dinner for Schmucks (2010)
This is an awful, awful movie
Steve Carell's character makes me angry in every scene. I know this movie is supposed to be a comedy, but I did not laugh at all. I don't like Steve Carell in general, but I know he has some good movies, but this one is by no means one of them, on the contrary this movie is super bad, so bad that it made me angry every time (I know I already said that, but i have to say it again). I fill so sorry for Paul Rudd, I only decided to watch the movie because of him, but man, it was so difficult to get through it. This is an awful, awful movie.
