RAKE – My rating: 8/10

RakeI’m giving Rake a rating of 8 because it so entertaining, I can’t give it any less.  It’s wild, crazy and totally unrealistic.  It’s almost bordering on being a fantasy.   Keegan Deane  played by Greg Kinnar, is a lawyer with a gambling and sex problem.  He really belongs nowhere.  He’s estranged from his wife and son but remain friends.  He had a tiny practice, but lost it all to gambling debts that he still hasn’t paid.  He has more than his share of true friends and a very loyal assistant named Leanne Zander played by British actress,  Tara Summers  (best know for Boston Legal).  Deane has managed to have sex with every nationality of woman and from every walk in society, including a hooker that he is practically in love with.  He lives from pillar to post.  His best friend owns a law firm and has hired him to help get some of the…

SLEEPY HOLLOW – My Rating: 8.5/10

SleepyHollowI didn’t except this new series called Sleepy Hollow to be about how the legend came to be or what it takes in these modern times to deal with such things as headless horsemen, demons, the Masons, Ichabod Crane and two beautiful young African American sisters who are all so pulled into the legend they don’t live for anything else.  Originally,  The Legend of Sleepy Hollow ” was derived from a   short story  by American author  Washington Irving.  It consisted of  34 essays and short stories entitled “ The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent” and was  first published in the year 1820.

Each week the essays are torn down from book form into episodes depicting this famous novel’s stories that make up this popular folktale.  The twist and turns are pretty interesting and Ichabod Crane, played by Tom Mison, who was resurrected after 250 years, has joined forces with Lt. Abbie Mills played by Nicole Beharie…

5 White Vegetables You Should Eat More Of (And Why)

Everyone knows that once spring is in the air, we can welcome back our white wardrobes. Why wait till Memorial Day? Fashion experts have assured us that we are not breaking the law if we slip into those white jeans today!

But there’s a better way to get the benefits of white year-round — by putting it in your body instead of on it! We’re often told to “eat a rainbow” and we aim for the guideline that says the more color a food has, the better it is. However, color is just one indicator of nutrient content. Produce that wears white could be just as valuable. In fact, some white vegetables contribute substantial quantities of nutrients that we seem to be missing most often (also known as shortfall nutrients), like potassium, magnesium and fiber.

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL (2014) – My rating: 7.5/10

TheGrandBudapestHotelCritics Gave The Grand Budapest Hotel a “Must See” rating.  Choosing to see Budapest was a risk taking adventure for me as I don’t like slapstick comedy. Obviously, I saw it anyway.  Hoping that it was going to beat out the competition, I let the other movies fall my the wayside in favor of The Grand Budapest Hotel, which was not exactly slapstick.  I can’t say I made the wrong decision but I can say it was not a “Must See” movie. There was an unprecedented amount of stars in this movie starting with Jude Law who played an interviewer/writer and guest at the hotel.  This is the story of  Gustave H, played by Ralph Fiennes,  a legendary concierge at a  famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy, played by F. Murray Abraham as an adult and Tony Revolon as a young…

MARVEL AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. – My rating: 7.5/10

AgentsOfShieldAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. struck me as somewhat amateurish.  The stories are good, the acting is good so what else could be the problem?  I’ve finally figured out what’s wrong.  It’s the direction and the music.  Transitions between scenes sometimes seem slow and totally unconvincing, like an after thought.  The music also sounds corny, like it belongs in a children’s cartoon with toy guns.  It’s almost reminds me of children’s play acting.  The wrong music can really spoil a production.  This is truly difficult to verbalize.  I watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  regulary because it’s a good series that needs better direction.  If how to rid the show of it’s hesitant transitions and overall corniness, plus use better music, it would be an instant hit.  The S.H.I.E.L.D. team is dedicated to finding and helping individuals with extraordinary powers while protecting the world from the super powers of those gone bad.  The main team consist of 2…

I learned a lot about resistance when I first joined the electric shop at the coal-fired power plant in North Central Oklahoma in 1984.  I was assigned to work with Sonny Kendrick and Bill Rivers on the Precipitator during overhauls and when I wasn’t working on the manhole pumps and there wasn’t any other emergencies going on.  Actually, from 1984 on, on, the Precipitator for the next 17 years I continued to work on the precipitator… (if I had only known my fate….).

Not only did I learn a lot about resistance, I…

Ancient Virus ‘Resurrected’ From 30,000-Year-Old Ice In Siberia

In what seems like a plot straight out of a low-budget science-fiction film, scientists have revived a giant virus that was buried in Siberian ice for 30,000 years — and it is still infectious. Its targets, fortunately, are amoebae, but the researchers suggest that as Earth’s ice melts, this could trigger the return of other ancient viruses, with potential risks for human health.

The newly thawed virus is the biggest one ever found. At 1.5 micrometres long, it is comparable in size to a small bacterium. Evolutionary biologists Jean-Michel Claverie and Chantal Abergel, the husband-and-wife team at Aix-Marseille University in France who led the work, named it Pithovirus sibericum, inspired by the Greek word ‘pithos’ for the large container used by the ancient Greeks to store wine and food. “We’re French, so we had to put wine in the story,” says…

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL (2014) – My rating: 7.5/10

Originally posted on CAROL's WORLD:

HeavenIsForRealHeaven is for Real was pretty good.   A 4 year old boy had a near death experience when his appendix ruptured.  He survived the ordeal only to tell his parents about people and events that took place in heaven that he couldn’t possibly know about.  He even met Jesus.  It is my understanding from the Bible, that we will not have these earthly bodies in Heaven and when Jesus returns, we will all be judged, therefore no one should be in Heaven (except the original angels) until the Rapture.  I was always under the impression when you die, you are in a deep sleep or unconscientiousness until judgement day.  This is only my interpretation so I could be mistaken.  Also, everything shown in the coming attractions was not shown in the  movie which is a pet peeve of mine.

I had the privilege of meeting the real family with their son at my church a few weeks ago.  They…

An Arkansas man faces multiple felony charges after police said he raped a 2-year-old and filmed the deplorable act using a cell phone camera.

Scott Sholds, 31, was arrested on suspicion of distributing, possession and viewing child pornography, computer exploitation of a child and felony rape or sexual intercourse on Wednesday, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect’s ex-girlfriend alerted police after discovering a disturbing cell phone video of a man, whom she identified as Sholds, allegedly having intercourse with a child, according to 5 News Online. She told police that she found the video on her cell phone after her son had taken the device and given it to Sholds, who is the boy’s father.
