Drop Zone (1994)

It looks like that lately I am watching the movies that inspired Grand Theft Auto. Yesterday it was Gone in Sixty Seconds, with car boosting, racing the police, et al. Today, Drop Zone, with parachute diving, namely into a moving truck. Nothing I didn’t do before… in GTA.

Well, regarding the movie, it is yet another typical argument. But enjoyable. Action with humour and a girl. What else a guy wants? Ah, some more action, and some more jokes. Good for a last day of the year evening.

‘Allo ‘Allo (Season 2)

The second season of Allo Allo continues in the sequence of the first series, with the Resistance fighting the Germans, the Germans fighting themselves, and the English airmen trying to escape. This all in a big mix of fun deaths, funerals, duels, et al.

A fun series to watch, but doesn’t bring any real novelty regarding the first season. Probably I should say, more of the same. But if the same was good, good…

Modern Family (season 2)

Modern Family second season is a little better than the first season, but not much different. What I miss in this series is continuity. Not requesting a complex story that continues every episode, like Smash, or Game of Thrones, but a global story that ties episodes together (like Castle, Nikita or the good old House). In this season there are some episodes with a sequence (regarding Manny’s dog), some episodes that refer to previous ones (like Valentines day, or the last from the season, that visits a set of previous episodes).

But, the thing I like most is Glória (Sofia Vergara) and the sound similarities: Saxophone vs Sexy Phone, Baby Cheeses vs Baby Jesus. Just great.
