They raided the old folks home
for this one. Pacino is 79, Deniro
75, Pesci 76. Makeup every day
must have taken hours.


Lots has been written about all the CGI de-aging this movie will use.

I haven't finished it yet but the new season of "Last Chance U" might be one of the most compelling tv shows ever!

Ray Donavan. Saw the first 3 eps, it
was pretty good. Does it keep
getting better or does it get really
dumb like so many shows do.

Ray Donavan.

You'll love it. Evil corruption in the Catholic church ahead.

They kill a pedo priest in the first
20 min. The similarities to Soprano's
is amazing. Terribly dysfunctional
family, shrill bitchy wife, Ray cheats
on her in the first ep, kids are clones
of the Soprano kids, Ray is super
violent just like Tony Soprano. Breaks
a clients hand and beats a guy half
to death with a bat, Tony in the first
ep see's a guy who owes him money,
chases him, and kicks him into
unconsciousness.

Tony is more likable than Ray, though.
Ray is solemn all the time and has zero
sense of humor. I don't like Paula
MalComson anyway, not even in Deadwood.
She a whiner and a moaner groaner and
not in the least bit attractive. I was
shocked at how fit Jon Voight was at 74.
Shirt off, no gut, he almost had ab's.
He carries the show so far.

The pedo priest story is a long running one.

Voight is the stand out in the show

Liev Schreiber is Ray Donovan (2013–present); the role has earned him five Golden Globe Award nominations and three Primetime Emmy Award nominations. But his biggest role is "watch salesman". The product placement money probably paid for the production of the series.

I have to get over Paula MalComson
being in the show, like I got over
Skyler in BB. Just FF thru her parts,
I guess. She's fingernails on a blackboard
to me. And the daughter, what a peach
she is. At least the Soprano daughter
was attractive.

Everyone in the show is a battered by life. They all have abrasive angles. They are seduced by money and power, and all of them give into greed. Nobody remains pure.


Paula MacComson plays a very flawed woman. But by the end of the show I really respected her acting.

Finished the first season of Ray
Donavan. Not bad if you block
out the constant whining and
bitching of his wife.
The scene where they kill the
pedo priest was very satisfying.
I bet a lot of people cheered
seeing it when the show aired.
They wrote him perfectly, in
his mind he did nothing wrong.
It was the kids that seduced him,
he has nothing to apologize
for.
I don't see how they can top
season 1. I mean, Rosanna
Arquette and James Woods
and they both get killed?
Woods always plays a believable
jerk bad guy.

I have to admit season #1 was pretty terrific.
