Proven Innocent: Pilot
(2019)
Episode 1, Season 1

Disappointing...
The lead character is played by a weak actress (Rachelle Lefevre) who could grow but she seems stretched to her limit. Other stronger actors (Russell Hornsby,Nikki M. James, and Kelsey Grammer) are under used and seem more like professional studio musicians used to back up singer who just doesn't have the goods...

Excellent- But the sound...
It's excellent all the way around... But it suffers from a common problem.

The music is louder than the dialogue. I'm not talking about the songs that are played during transition sequences, I'm talking about the "wall paper" (As randy Newman called it). The music that plays in the background in order to create a mood is just a bit louder than the exchanges between actors. When you turn it up to hear the dialogue the wall paper turns up as well.

As I said, I notice this is a common problem in some of the programs produced for Masterpiece. I wonder if it's a translation problem between the U.S. and the U.K. Something to do with direct current vs. Alternating current in the way things were recorded... Maybe it's just bad sound people- maybe it's just me...

Won't Back Down
(2012)

corporate propaganda...:-(
This movie is corporate, anti-union, anti teacher propaganda. The fact that a talented actress' like Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Rosie Perez were deceived (I hope, and assume) into participating in this attack on the integrity of public schools is shameful...
