1) “One Night In Miami”–movie–Amazon Prime–1 hour & 45 minutes–one of the best movies in the past year–a gathering of Malcolm X, Sam Cooke, Jim Brown and Cassius Clay in a Miami hotel room, and each talks about his personal experience as a black man–excellent acting and direction A MUST SEE

!2) “Mudbound”–movie–Netflix–2 hours & 15 minutes–a good film that could have been better by 20-25 minutes of editing–a story of 2 Mississippi families–one black and the other white–A Very Emotional Moving Movie

3) EDHA–Netflix–Argentina series–Netflix–Season 1–10 episodes–6 hours & 28 minutes–not a bad soap opera that takes place in the fashion world–Nothing Special.

4) “The ABC Murders”–Amazon Prime–Limited Series–3 episodes–2 hours and 51 minutes–Hercule Poirot played by John Malkovich–as written by Sarah Phelps–never thought I would put Agatha Christie and boring in the same sentence but the writer who rewrote Christie’s story and actor Malkovich are both Boring!

5) “Show Business: The Road to Broadway”–Amazon Prime–documentary–1 hour & 42 minutes–for Broadway musical lovers who wonder what involves bringing a musical to Broadway–the pitfalls and hard work–looks at 4 shows: Wicked, Avenue Q, Taboo and Caroline or Change–Interesting to followers of Broadway

7) “Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992”–Amazon Prime–documentary–2 hours & 23 minutes–though it is about Rodney King, the verdict, and the riots caused by it, this documentary could be made today about today–A real-life shattering drama.8) “Night Stalker: Hunt For a Serial Killer”–4 part documentary series–3 hours & 9 minutes–could have been told in 2 hours or less–as seen through the eyes of the two detectives who worked the case–If you are into graphic true crime stories.
