1) “Rocco”–Netflix–French Documentary–1 hour & 45 minutes–supposedly the number one porn star is retiring to work behind the camera–a lot of talk–he doesn’t really seem to know himself–DUBBING IN VARIOUS LANGUAGES IS PRETTY BAD AS ROCCO SEEMS TO BE IN HIS JOB

2) “A Castle For Christmas”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 39 minutes–at this time of the year there are dozens of rom/com Christmas movies and each one has to have a ‘gimmick’ so Castle has a few with the primary one being filmed in Scotland plus the chemistry between Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes–nothing like a duke meeting a commoner–a Christmas song–WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT? OH YES, ONE OF THE BEST DOG ACTORS EVER.

3) “Procession”–Netflix–Documentary–1 hour & 58 minutes–6 men sexually abused by priests as children tell what happened–the church tries, as one of many diversions, by calling them homosexual acts which they aren’t–these are acts by pedophiles which really doesn’t make it any easier to hear but it does divert from the criminal aspect–NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU READ AND/OR HEAR ABOUT CHILD ABUSE IT NEVER GETS EASY TO HEAR/SEE BUT IT MUST STAY IN THE NEWS

4) “A Boy Called Christmas”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 46 minutes–the ‘gimmick(s)’ in this Christmas movie are having Maggie Smith telling the story, a boy called Christmas, a talking mouse, a reindeer named Blitzen, elves, snow, lights, children and, oh, did I mention Maggie Smith?–COME ON THIS IS CHRISTMAS–HOW DO I SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT A MOVIE WITH MAGGIE SMITH AND A BOY CALLED CHRISTMAS?

5) “Vita & Virginia”–Prime Amazon–movie–1 hour & 49 minutes–based on a true story–the production values of this British film outshine the story and the lives of these two women–HOPEFULLY VITA AND VIRGINIA WERE MORE INTERESTING IN LIFE THAN THEY COME ACROSS IN THIS MOVIE

6) “Yara”–Netflix–Italian film–1 hour & 36 minutes–true story of a 13 year old girl who is murdered just before the beginning of DNA is used to solve crimes–except for the description of how the young girl was killed there is no other violence in the filmA GOOD TRUE CRIME STORY
