The Film No One Will Remember For Awards Season: The Spectacular Now
T: Certainly, there are other worthy films this year that could be listed under this article’s header. And certainly there will (are!) more to come (I have it on trusted authority Nebraska is quite awesome). But I want to point out a movie I critiqued here, this summer: The Spectacular Now.
Amazing performances all around. Miles Teller WILL be a star. Shailene Woodley put the mess of The Secret Life of the American Teenager behind her (actually, she did that with The Descendants). Supporting cast is amazing as well. It’s just a wonderfully acted movie.
Which, of course, is nowhere without a script to back it up. A director to create a vision. And this movie had both in spades.
No one will even think about a movie about high school seniors. They perceive it as FOR high school seniors. It’s not. It’s truly…spectacular. And if my 66 year old mom and 69 (?!) year old stepdad can see it and love it…I assure you. It’s everything I’m saying it is.

How I Met Your Mother Sucks
T: I can be silent no longer. I’m simply amazed at how How I Met Your Mother has imploded. What was once the second coming of Friends (that’s a compliment), has become the worst experience ever. Everything about the show is forced and shoved down our throats.
So, when it began, HIMYM was this cutesy little show. We always knew Ted would meet the mother, duh. But years dragged on and on as the writers/creators didn’t want to lose their bread and butter. Is there anyone who didn’t want Ted and Robin together? I guess it’s possible. But they wrote themselves into such a corner…what a shame.
Which leads to the mother. WHO THE FUCK CARES! At this point, seriously, who cares who this chick is. We aren’t invested in her—despite the title of the show. She’s some stupid bitch who came in to ruin what was once a fun show. Nothing against the actress in the role. This is all directed to the lazy writer/creators.
Horrible way to go out. And sad. When it was good, HIMYM was really good. It’s not now. At all. Boo.

What To Watch - 10/27/13
T: It’s been a while! We’re still in the process of moving this endeavor, whatever it is, over to wordpress. Stay tuned. mauiloveschachi will stay here, too!
Sundays = good TV. Period.
You’re A Dumbass Not To Watch
The Walking Dead. If for no other reason than to have something to talk about at work tomorrow. Come on. Most of you reading this are in LA. It’s just kinda the rule. I’m kinda ho hum on it so far this season, but ho hum on AMC isn’t a run of the mill ho hum. 7p/10p E/P
The Good Wife. Network TV’s best drama. Very possibly best show. Period. And tonight is GOING TO BE ON FUCKING FIRE! Watch this shit! CBS. 9p E/P
Still Worth Your While
If you’re into it, it’s a fun season on The Amazing Race. If you’re not, I’m not going to bitch. Reality…er, “reality” gets you or it doesn’t. This show…I get. CBS. 8p E/P
The Talking Dead. I love Chris Hardwick and you have to hand it to AMC for creating great companions to these shows (thank God they didn’t give Matthew Weiner an after show for Mad Men. Talk about the most potentially self indulgent show of all time…the after show possibility, not Mad Men (though it’s coming dangerously close). 8p/11p, E/P.
Have fun, numb nuts. Happy Watching.
