Happy New Year, Charlie Brown (1986) Rated G

Charlie Brown is obligated to attend Peppermint Patties’ New Year’s party but would rather read War and Peace. Starring Chad Allen, Kristie Baker, and Melissa Guzzi.

This isn’t one of the best Charlie Brown specials. The film has the usual Peanuts gang problems – obligations are put on the back burner for fun. Some of the characters are annoying in this special, but it still has the Peanuts’ heart. However, there are moments that aren’t typical for the characters. It’s such a mixture of classic Peanuts and not really Peanuts that it doesn’t make much sense. Thus, the film is not worth the watch.

Sam & Kate (2022) Rated R

A son returns home to help care for his aging father. Starring Henry Thomas, Dustin Hoffman, and Sissy Spacek. 

There are a couple of things I liked about this film and there are some things I didn’t like. One is the drug use; I know that this is becoming more mainstream, but I’m not a fan of it being natural. Another issue I have is that we start the film with no context, so at first, you don’t have any idea what is going on. Once you get to know each of the characters who represent normal everyday people, the film picks up and they become characters we love. This film represents everyday life with our loved ones. We each have hurts and faults that are hard to live with, but coming together and loving one another is what it is all about. I also really enjoyed seeing both Hoffman’s and Spacek’s children play the characters’ children. Family resemblance is a joy to see, even if it’s fake. Those are the joys of the film, and although Jake Hoffman’s front-door monologue had me in tears, the film still left me feeling disconnected.  This one doesn’t quite hit the mark, making it not worth the watch.

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer (2000) Rated TV-G

A youth embarks on a journey to find his grandmother and discover that Santa is real. Starring Elmo Shropshire, Michele Lee, and Susan Blu.

There are a lot of things about this animated adventure that make its status as a classic questionable. The film follows the song as best it could. However, I treasure the song as a warm, happy family experience rather than a dysfunctional family drama. This is not a fun romp for kids to watch. I wondered about the animation as it’s geared more toward adults than kids. Then you have the voice acting, which works at times but doesn’t always match the characters. To me, the film is low-budgeted. I would really like to see this made with a bigger, giving us a more Christmasy, family-oriented film. This is not worth the watch.

SAS Rogue Heroes (Epix) Rated TV-MA

 

 

 

 Based on the book by Ben Macintyre about the creation of the Special Forces unit. Starring Connor Swindells, Jack O’Connell, and Jacob Ifan. 

While the miniseries entertains and tells the story of Britain trying to hold onto Africa during WWII, it tends to be chaotic in its storytelling. It’s great at bringing to life an era that is almost forgotten, but it isn’t realistic in its characters. The characters seem larger than life with a great sense of humor. It’s a very fictional take on history. That’s the main problem with the series. Although it has its issues, the series is still entertaining enough to be worth the watch.

Mountain Men: Ultimate Marksman (History) Rated NR

This game show incorporates skill with a weapon while explaining the reason the weapon was made. The winner walks away with the title and $10,000. Starring Colby Donaldson and Mark Romano.

This is one game show that’s interesting. We have a variety of weapons that are used by contestants. The show mixes American history with the weaponry of the same time period. Competitors face three rounds of different challenges that showcase the weapon as well as the landscape these weapons were used in. The game is hosted by Donaldson and Romano. The hosts know the weapons that are used and give a play-by-play of how the contestants are doing. This series is worth the watch.

Ghosts in the Hood (WETV) Rated NR

Defecio Stoglin and his crew hunt down ghosts in urban America. Starring Cherelle Patrice, Defecio Stoglin, and Maunda Oyin.

The urban ghost squad mixes comedy with ghost hunting. The show is mostly making fun of ghost hunting and each character. They are unprofessional and spoofing other shows. To me, the show is unrealistic and fake – nothing about it is real, kinda like other paranormal shows. I almost believe that this show is scripted due to how awful it is. The characters don’t know what they are doing and constantly make fun of each other or crack jokes. Most of the time the jokes aren’t even funny. This show is not worth the watch.

Deepwater Horizon (2016) Rated PG-13

A film based on the true story of the explosion on the drilling rig, Deepwater Horizon in April of 2010. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, and Douglas M. Griffin.

This is a brilliant testament to Peter Berg’s direction. We get a great action film with an honest account of the tragedy. The story follows key witnesses of the event rather than the tragedy of those we lost. Berg shows great attention to detail on an ocean rig and he gives us a chance to know the characters that make up the rig. It also leaves us with a calmness when all is over. Overall, the film is an excellent portrayal of a true event that ended in tragedy. It’s worth a watch.
