DESIGNATED SURVIVOR – My rating: 9.3/10

CAROL's WORLD

designatedsurvivorThey’ve done it again.  The producers of 24 have come up with another hit series, Designated Survivor.  It’s every bit as exciting as 24 was.  I am having a real blast watching this new drama with a more mellow character.  No fighting, torture, jumping and running from building to building, just plain old fashion deceit, devious plots, murder, terror attacks and plenty of cover ups.  Oh, and lets not leave out brains, meaning cleverness, logic and street smarts.

Imagine all the heads of state, thrown in with some VIPs from other places meeting somewhere in Washington D.C.  Let’s say a bomb were to hit that meeting place and kill every single person there, including the President of the United State of America.  Well, that is just what happens in Designated Survivor.  That is why there is always one man left behind in case such a catastrophe should happen, thus eliminating…

HIDDEN FIGURES (2016) – My rating: 9.3/10

CAROL's WORLD

hiddenfiguresHidden Figures is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time.  Based on true events, Hidden Figures reveals history about the United States space program we knew very little about.  I was shocked to know that Black women participated in the launching of the first US astronaut orbiting the earth, in space or that they contributed in any way to launching the first man on the moon.  The trials and tribulations they went through broke my heart.  This movie tells a story of profound contributions made by three highly educated master minds, toward the space race between the USA and the USSR to gain control during the space age in order to achieve peace, respect and privilege as the front runner and leader, as a nation.  The film recounts the story of three African-American women who worked in professional positions at NASA and helped the United…

FENCES (2016) – My rating: 9/10

CAROL's WORLD

fencesI heard Fences was somewhat theatrical, which it was and after seeing it, I also found it was a little slow. At times, I felt I watching a play but a very well written and a very well acted play. Never having read August Wilson’s play, I didn’t know where this story was going. Then all of a sudden, it took a turn for the better. I sat up in my seat and any boredom and any bad thoughts I harbored about having come to see Fences disappeared. Suddenly, excitement and intrigue entered the story. My emotions were coming into play and I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. Was I dreaming or was this really happening? Was this boring, straight, hardly off the beaten path, Black man now full of sass and controversy with an exciting story to tell? Is he really standing here before his…

PURE GENIUS – My rating: 9/10

CAROL's WORLD

puregeniusWhat a refreshing new series. While it’s not perfect, it is different enough in the category of  hospital series to consider Pure Genius a keeper. I’m willing to bet most people feel when one is faced with a fatal disease, the FDA’s bureaucratic rules only stand in the way when there’s a potential treatment out there they won’t allow you to participate in because they haven’t done the years of testing they feel is necessary for approval. When you only have a few weeks or months or even just year to live, does it matter?  If it does, say no, if it doesn’t, say yes.

Pure Genius is about the cutting edge of technology. Originally called Bunker Hill, it’s not about defying the FDA, it’s about thinking outside the box and saving lives. The staff is often at odds with the FDA, trying to get them to approve treatments using…

GOOD BEHAVIOR – My rating: 8/10

Leave a comment

CAROL's WORLD

goodbehaviorGood Behavior is a sign of an excellent actress. The star role is a far cry from the famous Lady Mary Josephine Crawley from Downton Abbey, the popular BBC series that ended in 2016. When I heard Good Behavior was going to air in 2017, featuring a British actress from the Abbey series, I was thrilled. After watching the first couple of episodes, I was amazed. Good Behavior is about a drug dependent, alcoholic, thief, con artist and single mom, who will do what is necessary to get what she wants. Estranged from her son, Jacob Raines (Nyles Steele) because of her lifestyle and absence, due to bouts in jail/prison, Litty Raines (Michelle Dockery) is on a conquest to get her son back from her mother, Estelle (Lusia Strus) since she is fresh out of prison. In this series, Litty meets up with an assassin, Javier Pereira (Juan Diego Botto)

PASSENGERS (2016) – My rating: 8.5/10

CAROL's WORLD

passengersThere’s no doubt in my mind, Jennifer Lawrence will go down as one of the greatest actresses of all time.  She can make a crap script look good.  Not that Passengers is a bad script, it was actually quite good.  She made it look even better.  The story was different and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Over 5,000 people, they call colonists, signed up to journey to a new planet called Homestead II, which is 120 years away.  They are being transported by the Starship Avalon, to start a new life.  That means, new family, new friends, new planet, new rules, new beginning.  What a concept.  In my opinion, that would be nice if you were not bringing the same old you with the same old baggage.  You know the old but true saying, where ever you go, there you are.  Anyway, the technology on this fascinating, well constructed vessel…

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY (2016) – My rating: 8.5/10

CAROL's WORLD

rogue-one_astarwarsstoryBefore the last Star Wars adventure, which was about finding Luke Skywalker, (who is also the last Jedi) for his help in saving his sister and the republic from being destroyed by a new device, there was a story waiting to be told.  A new Death Star, a space station-based superweapon capable of destroying an entire planet  was being developed by a research scientist, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) who is now hiding on the planet Lah’mu with his wife Lyra Erso (Valene Kane) and daughter Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones).  Rogue One: A Star Wars Story goes back before The Force Awakens and tells us how it all came to be. Brilliantly acted, the story is excellent and to the point. The Force lives on.

In Rogue One, Imperial weapons developer, Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) arrives on planet Lah’mu to take Galen back with him to complete the unfinished…
