Quiz Show

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

Quiz Show - 4 out of 5

Who would have known that TV game shows were rigged? Actually, in this day and age it's not surprising but in the 1950's Americans weren't as jaded (or stupid if you watch Jersey Shore) so the concept of television executives (the most evil people in the world--they are the ones who gave Tyler Perry a show on TBS after all) actually cheating for the sake of ratings to be surprising.

Like most films based upon true stories, some liberties were taken as the filmmakers brought the 21 controversy to the screen and, despite these changes, the film is just amazing. The movie is wonderfully put together and have a fantastic cast. John Turturro and Ralph Fiennes are just plain amazing in their roles. And with the presentation of the story being polished, clean and super shiny, Quiz Show is a fantastic movie that holds up just as well today as it did when it came out in 1994.
