The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016) Rated PG-13

Eric and Sara try to conceal their forbidden love from the ice queen and her sister. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, and Jessica Chastain.

This film is a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsmanonly this time, it’s the prequel to the story of the Huntsman. I think the hardest thing this film had to overcome was the stupid personal mistake Snow White made on the other film.  This would have been interesting if it was an independent film and not a sequel. The film is not the best written; it’s a simple story with some exciting scenes, but the pacing is slow and explanations muddle the story. It’s just not a good fit for continuing story of Snow White. The film still has the great vision of the previous film. However, this one is not worth a watch.

Friends Speak (Reelz) Rated NR

 Friends Speak brings you the perspective of those who were friends with notorious criminals or their victims.  Starring Richard Koy, Talia Sargent, and Hudsynn Grace Kennedy.

This show interviews friends and family of those that committed horrendous acts. The friends are interviewed to tell their side of the story, what the victims were like, and how the criminals were before and after their crime. It’s an interesting watch, but it does give us an inside look at both the victim’s and the criminals’ life before the tragic event. It also gives us the understanding of what emotions the friends have experienced due to the tragedy. This show is worth a watch.

Bull (CBS) Rated TV-14

Dr. Bull uses psychology, human intuition, and high-tech data to figure out how jurors, attorneys, witnesses, and the accused come to a conclusion in a trial. Starring Michael Weatherly, Geneva Carr, and Jaime Lee Kirchner.

Weatherly is really a typecast. It’s almost like he is playing the same dude from NCIS. There’s really no difference in characters. This is one of those shows that just doesn’t seem to stand out against all the other legal dramas on TV. It’s a mixture of shows, but I felt it was mostly Weatherly being the same character – just figuring out why people do what they do. I really struggled with how cookie cutter this show. This show is not worth a watch.

God’s Not Dead: We the People (2021) Rated PG

 Reverend Dave defends himself and a group of homeschooling parents after they have an   inspection by the local government official. Starring David A.R. White, William Forsythe, and Isaiah Washington. 

I know that some people think this is a propaganda film, and I can see that line of thought if you just focus on the subject matter. I really enjoy these films. Sure, it’s not the best written, there are things that are pat and dry, and we don’t get down to the nitty gritty of the subject. This is why I enjoy these films; it takes a Christian perspective of the ongoing debates in our world today. These films aren’t really geared to non-Christians, not that I don’t think non-Christians can understand the films. It’s just that they don’t understand the worldview of Christians. It’s different, and it’s shown wonderfully in these films in a way that we hope non-Christians can see. This is a film that is worth a watch, even if it’s poorly written.

Wait Until Dark (1967) Rated NR

A blind woman is terrorized by a group of thugs looking for drugs in her apartment. Based on the play by Frederick Knott. Starring Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, and Richard Crenna.

This is one of those films that you think you know how this story will be but find out later it isn’t at all what you expected. I like those films; they surprise you, and most of the time, it’s the good surprise. Of course, we have Hepburn playing the blind woman, and she is exceptional. The film starts off innocently enough, but the director builds the threat until the exploding ending. The film is not Oscar-worthy, but it is one that brings entertainment. The movie is filmed like a stage play, which it’s based on. It’s one that is worth a watch.

Great Escapes with Morgan Freeman (History) Rated NR

 Morgan Freeman takes a look at the biggest jail breaks from some of the most famous prisons in the world. Starring Morgan Freeman, Andrew Patrick Nelson, and Devyn Sandidge. 

I’ve always enjoyed Freeman’s shows on the History channel. He does well interviewing the “experts” on the topic he is investigating. This is not exactly like his other shows. This one he just hosts, while others interview the “experts”. The show is interesting as they explain how the escapees get out of prison and the aftermath of their escape. The show mixes interviews with reenactments of the escape. Some of the interviews are with the people involved in the cases. It’s an interesting show and very much for entertainment purposes. This is a show that’s worth a watch.

Good Vibes (MTV) Rated TV-14

A teenage boy moves from the East coast to the West, where waves need to be surfed and girls need to chased. Starring Adam Brody, Jake Busey, and Josh Gad.

This is the worst show I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe the names that decided to take this job. For one, the writing is bad. It’s not funny, they treat women as objects to conquer. The sexual humor or potty humor is so on point that most people don’t even talk like that. If anyone does talk like that, they have limited friends, just saying. It’s inappropriate on a level that I don’t understand how it got a green light to air. It’s a show I highly recommend you do not see; it’s not worth a watch.

Adele One Night Only (2021) Rated NR

 A primetime special where Adele gives a concert with some of her new material and clips of an interview with Oprah. Starring Adele, Oprah Winfrey, and James Corden. 

I’ll start this review with a statement that this is my opinion of the event, it may or may not be how the producers or Adele believe the event is represented. 

I am not a big fan of Adele. I believe she has a wonderful voice and she writes amazing songs. However, this TV special hit me in a not so nice way. To me, this seems like an elite-only event where anybody of any clout was asked to attend. In a state that continues to close down events due to the pandemic, I really thought the show exhibited the “do as I say and not as I do” mentality. I really got the feeling of it being a “Nazi” event where the rest of the world is struggling to survive and the elite get to have a special concert for themselves. I don’t blame Adele for this. Granted, she may have wanted the show like this, but I put the blame mostly on Oprah. We’ll just do a who’s who in Hollywood because the average citizens can’t be here and we’ll have a concert. The whole event left a bad taste in my mouth. I wasn’t able to enjoy the concert or her interview due to my feelings. This, again, is my interpretation of the event, and maybe they didn’t mean it the way the program came off, but I didn’t get that impression. It’s not worth watch.
