TVArrow "Tremors" (02x12) Not Recommended
Official Synopsis: Arrow (Stephen Amell) offers to train Roy (Colton Haynes) so he can learn to control his newfound super-strength. However, Roy is a rebellious student and refuses to listen unless Arrow reveals his true identity, which Oliver refuses to do. Meanwhile, the Bronze Tiger (guest star Michael Jai White) escapes from prison and steals Malcolm’s earthquake machine to sell to the highest bidder. Oliver, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) attempt to stop the transfer, but Roy gets in the way, putting everyone in danger. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is disbarred and spirals out of control. Moira (Susanna Thompson) is thrilled when Walter (guest star Colin Salmon) asks her to dinner, but his reason surprises her. Thea (Willa Holland) encourages her mother to ask Walter to reconcile. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Drew Z. Greenberg (#212).
This could have been an amazing episode, but it falls flat. Bronze Tiger returns only to get knocked down faster than a weeble-wobble. Roy finally becomes Oliver's sidekick with terrifying results, but spends most of the episode playing Ralph Macchio in Karate Kid. Olivier's Mom wanders around deciding to run for mayor. Laurel wanders around whining about losing her job. Back on the island Oliver wanders around looking for Slade. Diggle stands around doing absolutely nothing again. Skip this one.
MoviesRobot and Frank (2012) Recommended
Official Synopsis: Set in the near future, an ex-jewel thief (Frank Langella) receives a gift from his son (James Marsden): a robot butler programmed to look after him. But soon the two companions try their luck as a heist team.
This independent film is delightful in it's exploration of a wonderful character and it's themes of loss and redemption. Langella plays Frank as a cantankerous old man suffering from memory loss who's fighting every step of the way to live independently. The great thing about the film is his robot (which he never does name) is a sounding board for his unfulfilled dreams of returning to his life of crime. Robot also reflects his fears of losing his memories forever. The plot is engaging, the characters are powerful and there's a twist near the end that blew my mind.
