Streaming Reviews April 2022 Part 2   Leave a comment

1) “Jeff Foxworthy: The Good Old Days”–Netflix–Standup–Finally a ‘clean’ comic–I have not seen and/or heard him in awhile–I loved his ‘You might be a redneck if……’ routines–what a pleasure to see him again—not a single time did he use THE ‘f’ word though he did say fart once–sure, there is a lot of sexual innuendo and he likes the words pee and peeing, especially in his last bit, but he is very funny using it—yes he refers to his ‘junk’ but 95% of his act is funny and clean–HE GOT ME TO LAUGH OUT LOUD A FEW TIMES WHICH ISN’T EASY FOR A STANDUP COMIC–A MUST SEE!

2) “Bridgerton”–Netflix–series–season 2–8 episodes–7 hours & 14 minutes–you know what to expect for ‘Shondaland’ productions and she delivers–a classic costume drama that takes place in the Regency era, early 1800 s–we have mothers wanting to marry their daughters off for monetary reasons–we have wives addressing their husbands as ‘My Lord’ in the privacy of their bedrooms–and we have Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte who wigs alone make this series worth seeing–the series hits all the right buttons and though you know where it is going you don’t want it to go there yet are happy when it does–you must see Golda!!!

3) “Standing Up”–Netflix–season 1–6 episodes–2 hours & 38 minutes–French with subtitles–we follow 4 comics from a beginner to one at it for awhile–none are funny–they are actors acting and do fine in the personal scenes but so many parts are of them doing stand up routines they don’t–a comedy about standup comics that is not funny nor are the actors.

4) “In Good Hands”–Netflix–Turkish movie filmed in Istanbul–1 hour & 45 minutes–the first half is a funny romantic comedy and second half a sad romantic drama–both are held together by a 6 year old (Mert Ege Ak)–there is only one thing I didn’t believe (nor do I believe what takes place between mother and son)–Asli Enver and Ezgi Senier are the leads but Ak is the STAR–“My heart hurts enough” is the story–if you are not crying and smiling at the ending I don’t want to know you!

5) “Windfall”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 32 minutes–Nobody (played by Jason Segal) holds CEO (played by Jesse Plemons) and Wife (played by Lily Collins) captive and Nobody isn’t good at this job–just as the people aren’t given names a lot of things aren’t revealed until—-it is rich versus poor–it is comedy versus drama–there’s a gun but…..there is a kidnapping but….there is a ransom but….there is a surprise ending that I didn’t see coming which makes for a good thriller

6) “The Woods”–Netflix–series—season 1–6 episodes–3 hours & 6 minutes–a novel set in New Jersey turns into a film set in Poland–a thriller that is too complex–too much going back and forth in time–interesting enough to keep you watching but by the 5th episode I wanted it to be over–the 5th episode seemed to never end–a teenage girl is missing and her brother is telling the story of what happened—or did it? Other teenagers  are missing–and people, giving their versions of what happened, help and hinder–by the end of episode 6 I didn’t care if the kids were missing, dead or ??? I won’t be seeing season 2 if the mystery wasn’t solved–I really don’t know or care
