Streaming Reviews–August 2021–Part 5   Leave a comment


1) “Hal Sparks: Charmageddon”–Prime Amazon–one man standup comic show–1 hour & 3 minutes–very clever with words; definitions, how to use them, when misused, etc.,–done in 2010 so a bit, well a lot, outdated–HE IS SMART BUT NOT FUNNY AS A COMEDIAN
2) “Poms”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 31 minutes–everybody loves old folks–oh, you don’t?–oh you are not old!–we all laugh at old people who do foolish things, right?–oh, that’s right  you are not old–I forgot so you may not laugh–I AM OLD AND I DIDN’T LAUGH THOUGH I DID LIKE THE CAST
3) “Akron”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 27 minutes–very ‘straight’ (no pun intended) gay themed film told with many underlying factors–2 young collage boys fall in love and both families, friends, school mates accept this as if it wasn’t Akron, Ohio!–I WOULD RECOMMEND SEEING “HOLD THE MAN”–SEE REVIEW AUGUST 2021 PART 3–A MORE MEANINGFUL AND MOVING LOVE STORY
4) “Brash Boys Club”–Amazon Prime–one night stand of 3 gay comics–1 hour & 22 minutes–granted I am not a standup comic fan but with 3 completely different identifying gay men I would at least laugh once–3 COMICS–30 MINUTES EACH–0 LAUGHS
5) “Everything is Free”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 31 minutes–I have no idea why this movie was made, what it was/is about or why people put up money to make it–WATCH IT AND MAYBE YOU CAN ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS
6) “Consequences”–Amazon Prime–Slovenian movie–1 hour & 35 minutes–writer/director Darko Stante says the film is based on his work in detention centers and he spends more time on the ‘love story’ than the centers–THE MOVIE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT THE SPINELESS ADULTS RUNNING THE CENTERS AND WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER
IF YOU HAVE TO WATCH ONE OF THESE THE ONLY ONE I CAN SUGGEST IS “POMS’ AS AT LEAST IT IS PROFESSIONALLY MADE WITH A STRONG CAST–OR BE SMART AND WATCH THE NEW EPISODES OF “GRACE & FRANKIE”!
