Streaming reviews–week of January 3, 2021–on Netflix unless otherwise noted.   Leave a comment

1) “History of Swear Words”–Series–season –6 episodes–each episode 20 minutes–hosted by Nic Cage–for a guy who doesn’t curse I found all of this educational and funny.

2) “On My Block”–Series–3 Seasons–season 1–10 episodes–4 hours & 39 minutes–season 2–10 episodes–4 hours & 42 minutes–season 3–8 episodes–4 hours & 5 minutes–surprised me–thought it was just another teenage nothing but  is a lot more–it is about family–we follow 4 high school teenagers–they are funny, touching, emotional kids who back up each other in a life that is not easy–halfway into the first season it became a must see for me.

3) “We Can Be Heroes”–Movie–1 hour & 40 minutes–funny, silly, imaginative, special effects ‘to die for’, fast paced fantasy–it seems Robert Rodriguez’s mind never stops and the action doesn’t–pure entertainment.

4) “Monarca”–Spanish Series–Season 1–10 episodes–7 hours & 8 minutes–Season 2–8 episodes–6 hours and 5 minutes–typical Mexican novella about a family involved with the mob and 3 children fighting about who takes over the business, of making tequila and building hotels, after father is killed–large cast with familiar story–for “Dynasty” lovers

5) “Murder in the Bayou”–Amazon Prime–Documentary–Season 1–5 episodes–4 hours & 29 minutes–an excellent fast paced mystery documentary though would have been much better if was edited to half the time–use of fast forward button will make it better.

6) “Nocturnal Animals”–Movie–1 hour & 56 minutes–this didn’t last long in the movie theatres when it came out in 2016 or I would have seen it being a huge fan of Jake Gyllenhaal and Laura Linney–good, interesting until the end–a big disappointment

7) “The Midnight Sky”–Movie–2 hours–would have been a lot better on a large movie screen–the last time I saw a space picture that I didn’t get was “2001 A Space Odyssey” in 1968 and the second time I saw it I ‘lit up’ (that was in my ‘bad boy’ days)–maybe that’s what I needed for this–a strong cast with good directing by George Clooney but forgettable
