Opinions and Editorials


I felt I haven't watched a lot of movies lately so today was the day I had to make it happen. I haven't een hearing a lot about any interesting movies so I went to my nearby movie site and scrolled through the selections.

TV Review: Chicago PD Season 1 Episode 3 "Chin Check"

Chin Check is here. It turned out a little different than I anticipated. Let us get into it.

First, the main procedural story. It involved the group discovering "cop killer" teflon tipped bullets at what was supposed to be a drug deal. They trace the insulin packaging that was going to be used, and end up finding a dead distributor. After they interrogate what turns out to be a lying wife, they nail down the family member who is actually dealing the long guns with a sting operation. It was quite a cinematic sequence with so many automatic weapons firing.

Russell and His Brand

In this day and time its hard to find heroes. Its hard enough finding loyal, steadfast people. Impossible. People run at the first small sight of trouble. Nowadays, the people who are supposed to protect the laws are the ones breaking it.

TV Review: Chicago PD Season 1 Episode 2 "Wrong Side of the Bars"

Chicago PD picks up right from the cliffhanger at the end of the pilot. Let's get into it.

The main story revolves around getting Antonio's kid back in one piece. Through a CI, Antonio is able to track down where the video of his son asking to be traded for the cartel member they captured was filmed. (On a side note, I loved the part where it was in Spanish and Voight asked for a translation, with Lindsay's response: "scream and we cut your tongue out"). They see the guy at the end of the hall and a foot chase ensues.

TV Review: Chicago Fire Season 2 Episode 12 "Out With a Bang"

Out With a Bang was immensely satisfying. Let's get into the episode and I will explain.

Out With a Bang puts us in the Firefighter Academy during a test for Dawson and her class. During the test, Dawson sees the other girl cheating with her phone. This is an interesting sticky situation for Dawson. For one, if word got out to class she ratted on her, it'll look like she's trying to take out the competition. Secondly, the teacher/student relationship already hit a few bumps with Severide and Dawson so it'll be interesting to see this play out. The girl expressed her interest in Severide before he tried to kick her out, so they'll probably end up dating and make things even more complicated.
