1) “She’s Out of My League”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 44 minutes–started watching it thinking it was “Out of My League” (see below)–boy meets girl, boy loses girl, audience cheers for boy to get girl–he’s a 5–she’s a 10–will it work? CONVINCING ENOUGH THAT YOU WILL CHEER FOR HIM TO BECOME A 10 FOR HER!

2) “Before/During/After”–Amazon Prime–1 hour & 23 minutes–boy meets girl–boy gets girl–boy and girl get divorced–story is a basic one about a marriage breaking up but the writer tries to approach it from a different angle–many ‘bits’ played by Broadway names–DOESN’T QUITE SUCCEED BUT TRIES

3) “Clive Davis: Sound Track of Our Lives”–Netflix–documentary–2 hours & 4 minutes–loads of clips and loads of praise for Davis–some by Davis–the man made many a “STAR”–responsible for many hit songs–many clips of Manilow, Warwick, Aretha (who seems to be all over these days) but mainly of ‘his’ star Houston–A LOVE SONG TO AND BY DAVIS WHO DESERVES IT

4) “Annette”–Amazon Prime–movie–2 hours & 20 minutes–a wife on the rise and her husband on the way down–“A Star Is Born”? not quite–a almost all sung through film to tell an old story with no chemistry between Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard and a puppet for a child–TOO MANY NEGATIVES

5) “Out of My League”–Netflix–Italian movie–1 hour & 31 minutes–she’s sick–an ‘ugly duckling’ in her words–she is sick with a short future ahead of her–he is rich and handsome–she has 2 gay friends but it doesn’t help–guess what happens–ALL CONTRIVED AND NO ITALIAN ‘HEAT’

6) “Count Me In”–Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 21 minutes–the best band drummers talk for and to themselves–even had my favorite from years ago Gene Krupa–CERTAINLY A LOT OF NOISE AND THE JAM SESSION AT THE END SHOWS HOW BEAUTIFUL NOISE CAN BE
