Another Fallen ‘Star’

Posted by tvondvdcritic on December 31, 2007


Former Lost star Michelle Rodriguez began her 180 day sentence of jail time last week in a detention facility, the same that Paris Hilton was in. First of all, you know your not a very big star if the first statement about your jail time is that you’ve stepped foot in the same spot Paris Hilton has. And second, if she was at all a big star, she would not be in jail for 6 months. What celebrity gets 180 days of jail? Everyone knows money can buy celebrities out of prison, so I’m thinking either she didn’t have enough bribery money (because she doesn’t make top dollar) or even if she did offer up a pretty penny, no one really knew who she was. I mean honestly, she was in Lost for like 7 episodes and that’s her claim to fame? Bai Ling was in an episode of Lost and you know how I feel about her.

And one other side note to add insult to injury, her real name is ‘Mayte”. You learn something new everyday.

Lost: Season 3 Review

Posted by tvondvdcritic on December 20, 2007


Ok, forget the entire season of Lost and let’s talk about that horrible finale. I know tons of people loved it, I hated it! How stupid do they think we are? From the moment the last episode started, I knew this was not a ‘flashback’ but instead a flash forward.  And that is their shocking surprise? Who in the world doesn’t think they are gonna be rescued?

So now, are we gonna have to see flash forwards the rest of the series’ limited 3 year run? Not exciting. I don’t care that Jack wants to get back to the island. He’s an idiot. What are the odds he ever will anyway, he doesn’t even know where it is.

Instead of wrapping up all the open storylines/mysteries, they created more, and even stupider ones. I wanna know why:

-Walt magically appeared

– Who the hell Jacob is

– What happens to Ben

– Where is Penelope

But instead, we see Jack with a beard that would make an indie kid jealous, and see him popping pills the whole episode. What confuses me even more is why fans ate this shit up?

So I lied. I will talk about the rest of the season. It wouldn’t be much of a review if I didn’t. I love shows with ensembles. This ranks right up there. Despite a bad ending, it had enough mystery and suspense that kept me hoping it would resolve itself. Even though it did not, I have to give it credit for at least keeping me glued to my seat til the last minute.

The season starts out with Jack, Kate and Sawyer captured by the others. They spend the whole first half of the season captured, and even now at the end of the season, we still have no good reason why the others do what they do. The whole year focuses on the others and a big reason I was so disappointed with the ending is, if your gonna focus on one storyline all year, at least explain it better, but they didn’t. We go into season 4 still as confused as ever.

Toward the end of the season, we have a mysterious woman parachute onto the island, claiming she is with a search team, who claims the entire plane was found with all the survivors, and they are all dead. So who are these people then? This woman has a radio signal, but before they can call for help, Locke, who I hate more than anyone, trys to warn Jack not to use it. Jack does anyway, and the rescue boat is soon nearby. Then we get the ‘flashforward’ to hobo-esque Jack, beard in full effect, and we soon (or in my case I knew since the first 5 minutes of the finale) find out it’s Jack off the island. Season over.

Bad ending, enough plot twists, and exciting moments for me to still say I loved the season, If I can hate it so bad but still love it, then it’s doing a lot right.

Score: 9/10

Bad Actor of The Week: Bai Ling

Posted by tvondvdcritic on November 26, 2007

I thought I would do a weekly spotlight profile of a bad/struggling actor since bad acting is one of my favorite things. The first person that stood out to me was a woman by the name of Bai Ling. I’ve heard about her strange ways but I got my first glimpse of  her this weekend in a clip from TMZ of her posing for pictures for celeb crazy fans who wanted a piece of anybody they could find. Of all people this is who they get. They could have at least got that unfunny guy from MADTV, Aries Spears. He was desperate for attention after being rejected from a nightclub in LA. He probably would have paid them to ooh and ahh over him. When asked what movies shes been in, no one knew, so Bai Ling proudly reminded them that she was in ‘Southland Tales’. Bai Ling isn’t a part of the celebrity alphabet list. And after hearing her speak I hardly think she even knows the American alphabet anyway. I guess you could say she isn’t ‘BaiLing-guel’.

Bai is a self proclaimed ‘alien’ from another planet, even though it’s documented she was born in China. I didn’t know aliens lived to be FORTY SIX years old. On her resume, shes credited for acting in Star Wars episode 3, where her scenes were all cut and never made the movie, a two episode guest appearance on ‘Touched By An Angel’ as Jean Chang, and VH1’s ‘But Can They Sing’ where she gives a vivacious performance of ‘Like A Virgin’. I think if I ever stared in a Juicy Juice commercial my acting career would be more successful than hers.

In the above clip, Ling appears in an episode of ‘Lost’ as a tattoo artist. This role is going to be reaccuring so hopefully her bad acting can continue to shine through.
