Arguably The Best Summer 2017 Movie And TV Info Out There
Ah, summer flicks and series! Nothing quite helps us decide what show or movie to watch like an articulate review or a trustworthy source of basic, unbiased content info. Whether we're going to the theater, renting it, streaming it or simply turning onto a local channel, we all appreciate knowing a little something about what we're getting ourselves into before the opening credits start. While many of us rely solely on IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes or even our local newspaper critics for entertainment guidance, there are literally thousands of sources where one may find reviews and info. Some of these may be written by folks you know; heck, you may have written a few yourself.
Unfortunately, some of these accessible sources, while perhaps chock-full of earnest opinions, may or may not be flawlessly accurate, unbiased, or even close to being offered in the most professional of manners. But if we're lucky enough we come across some examples of entertainment guides, listings and reviews that are as amusing, strange, controversial, thought-provoking or utterly useless as the show or movie they were written about. Here's a collection of the most interesting I've come across this summer, and I hope you enjoy it.
This first is a review for the current box-office hit, Wonder Woman. Now this reviewer may not be a flowery writer and he may not try to bog down his readers with a bunch of big words, but I'll give him this, the guy can deliver a succinct opinion!
This guide listing is about one of my favorite series on TV today, Fargo. And yeah, I can tell the writer and I watched the same program, but I suspect he's thought about it a whole lot more than me, lol.
Now I haven't watched a single episode of The Handmaid's Tale yet, and after reading this listing I'm not exactly sure I even wanna try.
I actually have sat down and watched Alex Jones' InfoWars, and apparently this listing writer came away with the same feelings about the show as I did.
I just happened to see Trainspotting 2 yesterday (loved it by the way!), and found this cinema listing almost as politically incorrect as the film's dark, humorous storyline.
And if you want a second opinion on what Trainspotting 2 is about, lol:
If modern movies don't billow your sail, there's plenty of classic ones to be found on TV. Like National Lampoon's Animal House and An Officer And A Gentleman.
Some modern TV shows have already been proclaimed classics. Of course, there will always be dissenters, like this editor who seems to have had a life-questioning moment or two after watching The Big Bang Theory.
This writer probably speaks for every Game of Thrones fan on the planet.
This day and age there's so many news broadcasts it can be hard to decide which one we want to watch, so it's nice when we run across a truth-in-advertising description like this one.
Speaking of truth, everybody today seems to have their own firm take on it so we shouldn't be surprised to find those takes popping up on public access television.
Public access hosts very often offer the most amazing tips on how to celebrate the summer. This one just seems a little out-of-season for my tastes.
Returning to the subject of classic movies, something tells me Mr. Johnson won't be renting any of the Tremors franchise offerings any time soon..
But scoff as one may at cult favorites, for some nothing completes the long, carefree balmy days like watching a summer-themed movie..except maybe a cat and his master sharing a piping hot dish of lasagna under the mistletoe.
