The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)
If ever there was a movie that suffered from middle chapter-itis, this is it ... even though, since they made four films in the Hunger Games  series, it's not strictly speaking the middle.  At least until the end of the picture. Anyway, Catching Fire  exist...

The Omega Factor (1979)
I read someone else's review of this series where they described it as " The X-Files , if it was made in 1970s Britain".  It's not a bad summation ... though not in my mind as positive a thing as that reviewer intended it to be. Conspiracy TV - that is, sho...

Pride and Prejudice (2003)
The most iconic screen version of Jane Austen's novel is probably the excellent  1995 mini-series , though my personal favourite remains 2012's Lizzie Bennet Diaries .  Which you can watch here .  Seriously, it's almost certainly a better use of your time t...

Supernatural, Season 5 (2009)
When Eric Kripke created Supernatural , he conceived of it as a discrete five year arc, culminating in the Winchester brothers taking on Lucifer himself.  I guess he figured once you've had your protagonists throw down with Satan, there's not much left for ...

Jules Verne's Mysterious Island (2012)
2012 saw the release of Journey 2: Mysterious Island  on the big screen.  It was a pretty average film, frankly, but it was a big enough release that it was inevitable someone would trot out a cheapie adaptation of Jules Verne's novel in the hope of riding ...

Robot Chicken Season 4 (2008)
One of the merits of Robot Chicken 's rapid-fire format is that if you don't like a particular skit, you never need to wait more than two minutes for the next one.  And there's always the chance that the punchline will redeem the skit in any case.  In this ...

Gallowwalkers (2012)
It's almost impressive that they could make a movie about undead cowboys this boring. Gallowwalkers  features Wesley Snipes in the lead role, and production was heavily delayed by the star's tax trouble.  It ultimately spent three years in production, then ...

The Wire, Season 5 (2008)
Frustration mounts in the Baltimore police department as budgetary constraints force investigations to be closed for lack of resources to pursue them, and severs the flow of overtime that most cops rely on to get by.  Reporters at the Baltimore Sun  are als...

Creep Creepersin's Frankenstein (2009)
Victor lives alone.  Well, alone except for his pet rat Frankenstein, and his occasional hallucinations of his mother, all of which appear to involve him being verbally abused.  Lonely, not too bright - he's unable to grasp that the women putting their phon...

Weeds, Season 4 (2008)
There are people who'll tell you that you should quit Weeds  after season three.  I can see where they are coming from.  The show shifts location, jettisons many well liked characters in favour of new ones, and embarks on a pretty thorough Flanderization of...
