So I watched the series finale of The Wire last night. This was a pretty good end to what happened overall in the show. Can't say I was really disappointed by really anything and I was satisfied with where a lot of the characters went. Even the serial killer storyline wrapped up in as good of a way as it could and it feels true to the show. There wasn't much "OH MY GOD! THAT WAS A CRAZY THING THAT JUST HAPPENED" kind of moments but I didn't really expect it anyway. Overall, not the best season but still it still had a lot of great material like the newspaper storyline and the stuff between Marlo and Omar. Even the serial killer stuff offered great moments even if it's not a great idea on its own. If I could make a list of some of the best shows I've gone through, this would definitely be on it. So glad I finally got to sit through this fantastic show.

With 3 episodes left, I think season 5 of The Wire is my least favorite season of the show but it's still great television in its own right. I mean the serial killer stuff is silly but I can understand the intentions behind it what with the city in bad shape and all. The Marlo and Omar storyline is probably the best stuff about the show right now. I'm watching this with my mom and she keeps telling me that she doesn't like Marlo and that he has to die, which is what she says about any antagonist on shows she really really loves. It's a testament to Marlo's actor, Jamie Hector, that he can make a character so hateable and cold. I don't hate him like she does but he's definitely got a coldness about him that makes him a great antagonist.

Season 5 is the weakest but still really good compared to most television. I heard there was a rumor for season 6 that never got made. What would you think that would be about?

Season 5 was actually my favorite. The focus on the newspaper and the journalism aspect of it really interested me and was something that I was completely on board with. I understand people not liking it, though, because it is such a change of pace from the previous seasons.

@oscarxp25: If there was a season 6, I would've like something more with Burrell and Rawls because in a show full of great characters, I always felt they were the least developed and more could be done with that. Or anything higher up in the police department. I mean they've shown parts of that before but I kinda want more of that. I like homicide but I think there's a lot of interesting political stuff they could've done with that.

@RandomK1NG: That's fine. I can understand that. I like the newspaper storyline even if it doesn't thrill me compared to previous seasons. My mom finds this aspect very boring but there's something suspenseful about it in an understated way that makes it interesting to watch.

I've been very busy with school taking psychology classes and I also have been started driving myself to school because it was finally time. A lot of people get this done in high school but I was more slow to get to this part of my life. Also, I think I'm just tired of taking the bus everywhere when I actually don't need to do that because I had a car at home the whole time. I was always scared because I always worried about getting into a crash because that happened to my mom and she's too traumatized to drive ever again and I worried I would deal with the same thing but it's been nice so far despite the traffic. I feel more confident and comfortable about it with each passing day.

Cars make it easier to see limited releases in other cities. So, that is one advantage, you will find, of driving.

The Wire season 4 is a fantastic season of television and the show seems to get more entertaining with every season. There was a lot of changes with the story and the characters but it still has the same tone and feel of the previous seasons so it's not such a vast difference. I was surprised at how less McNulty was used and how different he was but it makes sense storywise. It's such a small part of the season because it's mostly focused on the kids and what they're going through. I really felt bad for what they went through individually. Especially Wee-Bey's son Namond, because of all the pressure he's going through and he has the worst mother ever. That Dukie kid was really sad too. And then there's the Bubbles getting robbed thing that was heartbreaking. The politics with Carcetti is also really well done and it's interesting how that connects to the school storyline with the pilot program. There's so much compelling stuff in here and I like that this show tried something differ...

The Wire is still really great. Season 3 had a lot of great moments like the Hamsterdam stuff and the whole thing with Stringer trying to get a legit business going. There's a lot of interesting things going on from episode to episode this season and it's surprisingly got a lot of humor that works well with the serious and sometimes devestating subject matter. Season 4 is probably the most emotionally affecting season so far for me just because of the kids. It's interesting how it seems to shift focus from season to season but it still maintains the level of quality and that's hard to do but this show found a way to make it work. Also, the writing on this show is so great. It's not just lines that are quotable, it's also the fact that it's so dense and complex but somehow, you're still engrossed by all the characters and their individual storylines.

After getting through the greatness of Mad Men, I finally am getting through another show I've been meaning to finish: HBO's The Wire. Still enjoy season 1 although I think I appreciated the world building and the characters more the second time. Also I got my mom into it and I finally got to season 2 in one week. I know I hear this is the weakest season but I really loved it even if it does shift the perspective of all the crimes that go on. I do like how we get to see a different side of Baltimore and the Sobotkas make for compelling characters with Frank being the main guy trying to be on top of everything and Nick and Ziggy are interesting in their own way. I also love the fact of what starts the whole investigation involving the Sobotkas is that this Valchek guy is upset about not putting up his church window installation because the dockworkers did it first. lol 3 episodes into Season 3 and it seems to be more in line with season 1 but I find the territory stuff fascinating an...

3 episodes into Season 3 and it seems to be more in line with season 1 but I find the territory stuff fascinating and Omar's getting more to do, which is nice.

Three Fugitives



1989-three-fugitives-poster1

Directed by: Francis Veber
Written by: Francis Veber
Cast: Nick Nolte, Martin Short, Sarah Rowland Doroff, James Earl Jones
Studio: Buena Vista
Genre: Action, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: A reformed bank robber is taken as a hostage by another bank robber as they go on the lam with the recent bank robber's daughter.

Review:

Three Fugitives stars Nick Nolte as Lucas, a reformed bank robber who gets caught on the wrong side of the law when he becomes Martin Short’s hostage as Short’s character Ned Perry attempts to rob a bank. You see that’s already funny because Nick Nolte’s so tall and Martin Short’s so short. A lot of the jokes at the beginning of this are just based on that and I would be happy with that if you just want to make a dumb comedy that can mine some some solid material from that. A more silly and broader comedy was on the horizon from my memories of watching this on cable since this was like a lot of the stuff I grew up on. If not for cable, I wouldn’t have the soft spot for these silly 80’s comedies that I have now. Even hearing David McHugh’s awesome jazzy/synthesizer (or jazynthesizer?) score was enough of a successful memberberry to make this a masterpiece as the opening credits rolled. But then the rest of the movie happened and while it’s not a total slog to sit through, it hasn’t exactly aged the best...[more]...

I like your reviews of lesser known comedies.

Reminds me when I saw these on TBS.

Thanks. I would review movies like this all the time if I didn't have to go to school because I also loved watching them growing up on TBS as well as TNT and USA.

Hail, Caesar! is an interesting movie. I love the Coen Brothers and while I don't know if it's among the best, it's still very entertaining. I'm not too familar with old Hollywood but it's fascinating how all these different genres are presented and I would watch them as their own movies. There's a lot of love in how they honor some of these movies but it's also self aware about how cynical that world is. But overall, it has a nice story to it and George Clooney is hilarious in it. I feel like with a lot of these guys' movies, I'll appreciate it more the more I see it because it does feel a bit dense at times but I was still having a good time with it.
