Someone to Watch Over Me admittedly was a bit of a disappointment as I do love crime-dramas and combined with Ridley Scott at the helm, figured it’d be entertaining, but it’s a movie that features two leads who had zero chemistry with one another.
Hackers isn’t exactly a good movie but still entertaining and of the movies from the ‘90s dealing with technology, like The Net, Johnny Mnemonic, Virtuosity, it certainly holds up better (by comparison), in fact pair it up with one of those to make for a fun double feature.
“Rizzoli & Isles” is a fun show that won’t challenge the brain which makes it a nice, relaxing viewing. But beyond the stories, what drives the series, since its inception, the cast it what makes it go headlined by Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander who share amazing (friendly) on-screen chemistry.
“The Sopranos” is clearly one of the best television series ever created and throughout its 6 (and a half) seasons, it maintained quality through direction, writing and especially the acting both by not only James Gandolfini but Edie Falco as well. This “Complete Series” set is thankfully well put together as most of the features have been ported over.
Despite its many flaws in the show, I still found “Rizzoli & Isles” to be enjoyable enough. Is it as engaging from episode to episode? Not quite, but the performances from the cast do at least make me want to see future episodes at some point. Hopefully season four will have improved things on the story front while still moving the characters forward. The DVD has some OK, one-time viewing, features while the audio/video transfers are more than adequate.
