Streaming Reviews–September 2021–Part 3   Leave a comment

1) “Q Force”–Netflix–Animation series–4 hours & 20 minutes–full of gay stereotypes starring the voice of Sean Hayes who should know better–PROVES GAY CARTOONS CAN BE AS UNFUNNY AS NON-GAY CARTOONS

2) “Blood Brothers: Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali”–Netflix–Documentary–1 hour& 36 minutes–2 men in history who won’t be forgotten but how will they be remembered as individuals and/or as a team? A  GOOD DOCUMENTARY BUT A LOT IS ASSUMED AND/OR MADE UP

3) “Cinderella”–Amazon Prime–movie–1 hour & 53 minutes–each generation brings a different tale to this story and here Ella wants to be a fashion designer, independent, to compete–it is still the Cinderella story with the prince, the missing slipper and happily ever after–Pierce Bronson and Minnie Driver are the standouts–good musical numbers–Billy Porter is getting more hammy/outrageous with each movie–NOT THE BEST VERSION AND FAR FROM A MUST SEE

4) “JJ+E”–Netflix–Swedish movie–‘young adult’ movie–1 hour and 31 minutes–rich girl, poor boy, Swedish ending–not soapy but neglects one of the stories to the detriment of the whole movie–SWEET ROMANCE BUT CRAZY ENDING

5) “Hit and Run”–Netflix–Israel thriller series–season 1–9 episodes–7 hours & 10 minutes–Lior Raz, who certainly gets a workout, is a standout from the opening scene starting with his being beaten within an inch of his life and the violence continues from that point–a lot of fights, chases, killings, maiming, double crosses and some improbabilities–far too many dark lit scenes–an interesting story filmed in Tel Aviv  and New York city–THE ENDING SUGGESTS A SECOND SEASON AND, I HOPE, LESS VIOLENCE
