STREAMING REVIEWS–MAY 2022—PART 2   Leave a comment

1) “Grace & Frankie”–Netflix–Season 7–Part 2–12 episodes–5 hours & 34 minutes–end of series–this series reminds you of early television when a show ‘invaded’ your house and brought pleasure with each episode but except for a small attempt allowing for age and how it changes you they want to, and do, entertain you–it opened with the husbands (Sam Waterson & Martin Sheen) of the 2 women leaving them to live with each other and the women asking “What now?”–the 4 leads are dynamite as are the rest of the cast but the spotlight is on the 2 women and they deliver–Tomlin gets a laugh just with a look and with Fonda they work together like the pros they are but, obviously, enjoying their friendship–a great, fun show to stream!

2) “Ozark”–Netflix–Season 4–part 2–7 episodes–7 hours & 8 minutes–another series coming to an end–while each season had its ups and downs Laura Linney & Ruth Langmore–the former never giving a bad performance and the latter equaling her, basically, making her a new star–there is a lot of gambling, drug dealing, double crossing, not as much sex but dealing with families relationships–I wasn’t happy with the ending with certain cast members but unlike movies/shows from years ago this, in most cases, shows that crime does pay! Richard Thomas and Veronica Falcon give strong support.

3) “Oprah And Viola”–Netflix–Special Event–48 minutes–when you hear Viola Davis talk about hearing rats eating her porcelain doll you can feel how it means to be poor if you never were –she is talking with Oprah about her book, “Finding Me–A Memoir” and while I like Oprah I LOVE Viola Davis–a few quotes from her/her book: “My dreams had to be bigger than my fears,” “When faced with empathy and compassion you know you are being seen” but it is her talk with God about the type of man she wants is laughable, heartening, romantic and you can hear her waiting for His answer–Viola Davis is a force of nature and Oprah, one herself, knows just what to ask so we get to know the woman behind the actress–definitely a MUST SEE!

4) “Russian Doll”–Netflix–season 2–7 episodes—3 hours & 27 minutes–like season 1 season 2 doesn’t make much sense but Natasha Lyonne who stars in it and co-wrote it holds your attention just like she did in the previous season–instead of living the same day over and over this time she has gone back in time to 1982 and not only is she herself she is her mother too–it doesn’t have to make sense, just listen to the wisecracks–she sometimes plays her mother while other times Chloe Sevigny does, sometimes she is on a subway in NYC and sometimes it is 1962 and in Germany or Russia or who knows–and a plus is having Elizabeth Ashley as a tie between mother and daughter.

5) “Elite”–Netflix–Spanish series–season 5–8 episodes–6 hours & 12 minutes–it is a repeat of the first 4 seasons–the couplings, uncoupling, the crying, the changes, the gay or straight, the is he or she or isn’t, he did what! There are mostly old characters with a few new ones thrown in and possibly one shocker regarding who is having sex with who but all in all if you watched the first four seasons you’ll like this season and the way it ends–somewhat logical!

“HEARTSTOPPER”–STREAMING ON NETFLIX–SEASON 1–8 EPISODES–3 HOURS AND 53 MINUTES   Leave a comment

This is the first time I have reviewed a series on streaming individually because I was so impressed with it!  It is Season 1–8 episodes–3 hours and 53 minutes—on Netflix

Season 1

100%

Critics Consensus: An inclusive romance told with striking sensitivity, Heartstopper is so effortlessly charming that viewers won’t dare skip a beat.

2022, Netflix, 8 episodes, View details

Heartstopper is a British coming-of-age romance streaming television series developed for Netflix based on the webcomic and graphic novel of the same name by Alice Oseman. The series was released on 22 April 2022 to critical acclaim.

I usually don’t go for teenage coming out stories because I never went through the so many things they go through–hell, I never questioned my being gay going to the bars and baths in NYC when I was 13 & 14 BUT I was in tears through so much of this—happy tears, sad tears, heartbreaking tears–I mean I couldn’t see the TV screen the last episode–I wish they would show this in every high school AND LIBRARY in the USA. This is only a fraction of what the series is all about–I don’t want to give anything away–I want you to discover the kids as I did–as individuals–some knowing who they are, others guessing and still others having no cue–if you aren’t one of these teens then you knew them or of them

“They have done a really good job with casting teens that look a lot like how they are illustrated in the comics.  The series definitely has a British feel, which works really nicely. I am definitely looking forward to see if they stick with the plot all the way to the beginning. It is a a really well done romance that folds in some of the horrors teens face as well as the role social media plays in their lives.” (AJ Librarian)

If you don’t get Netflix get a trial period and watch this!! The two guys playing the leads Kit Connor and Joe Locke are dynamite!! And I was surprised to see Olivia Colman, in a smallish role, as Connor’s mother.

Ahead are just the headlines of the many positive reviews–to read the full reviews just go to RottenTomtaoes.com:

Heartstopper aces this portrayal of the bashful hope and gutting anxiety that accompanies young love. But the show isn’t just aimed at an adolescent crowd.

This show is lovely. Charlie and Nick’s friendship and possible something-more-ship is a joy to watch in a simple kind of way that will melt as many hearts as it stops.

Heartstopper may not quite live up to the dramatic promise of its title, but this adorable teen romance is a heartwarmer, at the very least.

A coming-of-age story notable above all for its sweetness… Heartstopper’s dulcet tone is addictive.

TOP CRITIC

Apr 20, 2022

“Heartstopper” captures the joys and agonies of being a teen, when every stray text can make a profound impact, and being able to announce you are “going out with” someone means everything.

Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Apr 15, 2022

Heartstopper is a truly comforting, uplifting teen dramedy that’s so loaded up on subtle moments of friendship and romance that your ticker will likely cease functioning at points.

Full Review

HEARTSTOPPER
Alice Oseman’s Heartstopper is a beautifully poignant graphic novel about identity, friendship, crushes, and the flush of first love. Most people in school seem to know that Charlie is gay. Heartstopper Vol. 1 definitely lives up to its hype of being a cute comic that is quick to read, one with diversity and a good representation with LGBT+ characters

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

Streaming Reviews–September 2021–Part 4   Leave a comment


1) “Live Twice, Love once”–Netflix–Spanish film–1 hour & 41 minutes–as it started I thought this was just another picture of an old person getting Alzheimer’s but it turns into a sweet picture of love in many forms–hard to see someone getting Alzheimer’s at 85 but THIS IS A WINNER FOR ROMANTICS LIKE ME

2) “Happy Endings”–Amazon Prime–series–3 seasons–19 hours & 16 minutes–6 friends living in Chicago–I gave up after 13 episodes of the first season–POOR IMITATION OF “FRIENDS”

3) “Really Love”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 35 minutes–Kofi Siriboe is a dynamite find–excellent actor–imposing presence–has a lot of chemistry with his co-star Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing–boy meets girl–boy falls in love with girl–he is an artist–she is a lawyer–boy loses girl–she has to choose between love and her values–they are in love–WILL THERE BE  A ‘HOLLYWOOD ENDING’? YOU’LL HAVE TO SEE FOR YOURSELF–I DON’T DO SPOILERS!

4) “Clickbait”–Netflix–limited series–8 episodes–6 hours & 8 minutes–learn about technology and why you should NEVER put anything on the Internet that you wouldn’t want everyone to see–I never had to worry about blackmail as my life is/was an open book known to all–STANDOUT CAST–ENDING REALLY SURPRISED ME–I DIDN’T EVEN COME CLOSE TO GUESSING WHO DID WHAT

5) “Agatha Christie’s Crooked House”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 55 minutes–nothing like a whole cast being ‘veddy English’, especially Glenn Close–it is Agatha Christie–FUN, PUZZLING AND YOU WILL NEVER GUESS WHO DID IT

6) “Fractured”–Netflix–movie thriller–1 hour & 40 minutes–a couple and their child are coming home from a Thanksgiving dinner at the wife’s family and stop at a gas station where the 6 year old child has an accident–they go to a hospital and the child disappears–it holds you interest up to the 1 hour and, maybe, 30 minute mark–AT THAT POINT TURN IT OFF AND MAKE UP YOUR OWN ENDING–THE SCREENWRITER RUINS THE WHOLE MOVIE WITH HIS

1) “I Am All Girls”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 47 minutes–human trafficking is a huge problem but not much is being done about it–yes, it is a delicate topic but it has to be talked about and the trafficking stopped–AN INFURIATING AND ABSORBING MOVIE WITH A STARTLING PERFORMANCE BY HLUBI MBOYA!

2) “Machines”–Hulu–documentary–1 hour & 11 minutes–for a guy with 0 mechanical ability (see my NYU aptitude tests if you don’t believe me) I don’t know why I turned on a film with the title of “Machines” but I did and stayed to the end–kids and grown men work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for a pittance–most can’t afford to buy a cigarette and never talk about food–most are so skinny it is hard to believe they work so hard–YES THE MATERIALS THEY MAKE ARE STUNNING BUT WHERE IS THEIR BEAUTY–NOT EASY TO WATCH BUT YOU WON’T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE SCREEN

3) “Pink: All I Know So Far”–Prime Amazon–documentary–1 hour & 39 minutes–up until seeing this film all I knew about Pink was that she was a singer and that was that–as a mother she is very much admired but as a singer I don’t like and/or remember her big numbers–when she sings by herself I like her but not her songs–OBVIOUSLY ALL 80,000 PEOPLE IN THE STADIUM LOVER HER

4) “Solos”–Prime Amazon–series–season 1–7 episodes–3 hours & 5 minutes–people see themselves in the future looking back on their past–sci-fi–most are monologues hence the title–TOP ACTORS SUCH AS HELEN MIRREN AND MORGAN FREEMAN SHOWING A RANGE OF EMOTIONS BUT WILL THERE BE A SECOND SEASON?

5) “Framing John DeLorean”–Hulu & Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 49 minutes–with Alec Baldwin playing DeLorean in reenactments–he doesn’t come across as the villain he seems to be making for a ‘quiet’ documentary–IF A MAN’S DOWNFALL INTERESTS YOU SO WILL THIS FILM

6) “Blue Miracles”–Netflix–movie based on a true story–1 hour & 35 minutes–if you don’t know where this story is going and/or if you don’t get choked up by the 80-minute mark and/or if you don’t want to make a donation and/or if you can’t believe this is a true story I DON’T WANT TO KNOW YOU–THIS IS A MUST SEE FILM & WAIT FOR THE END CREDITS

1) “Borgen”–Danish series–3 seasons–fiction–10 episodes each season with each episode running about 58 minutes–it is a look behind the scenes of the Denmark politics when the first woman is elected Prime Minister–with a first-rate production and cast headed by Sidse Babette Knudsen as the Prime Minister “Borgen” keeps on moving whether dealing with the 3 branches of government, the various political parties, what goes on behind the scenes and people who run it plus showing how it affects the Prime Minister’s home life you get involved with what is being presented as a political drama along with their personal lives. A 4th season has just been announced coming in 2022–EXCELLENT!

2) “Away”–American series–10 episodes each between 47 to 75 minutes–8 hours and 19 minutes–I am not a sci-fi fan but I am a Hillary Swank fan and almost gave up after the first tear-jerker episode but I hung in there and by the third episode I was hooked on the stories of the 5 astronauts making the first trip to Mars that will take 3 years–the effect of space on their bodies, minds and relationships while also dealing with keeping the space ship in mechanical perfection got to me as did the acting of the cast. VERY GOOD!

3) “Loaded”–British series–8 episodes each running 41 or 42 minutes–5 hours and 31 minutes–about 4 nerds who become multi-millionaires and their need to come up with another game–I did get 1 0r 2 laughs from each segment but the only one who held my interest was Jonny Sweet as the nerdiest of the nerds whose story arc is the most interesting–if you watch it you will enjoy it and if you don’t you won’t be missing it–just OKAY.

4) “Love, Guaranteed”–American film–1 hour and 31 minutes–if you start watching it and are too lazy to change the movie the courtroom scene will get you if you are a romantic–the plot is contrived and is about a guy who signs up with a dating app that, yes, guarantees you love and after 986 dates doesn’t he sues them–the best part of the movie is the disclaimer at the end–NAPPING MATERIAL.

5) “I’m Thinking of Ending Things”–American film–2 hours and 14 minutes–couldn’t give you a spoiler even if I wanted to–have no idea what it was trying to say–I am not a fan of writer-director Charlie Kaufman and I wish he hadn’t started they film–BORING!

Still loving “Rake” and “My Mother’s Killer”!

1) “Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All”–Netflix–documentary–2 parts–total 4 hours. No matter what you may think of the man there is no denying he is the greatest American singer who made each song ‘a 4-minute movie’!
2) “Holding The Man”–Netflix–Australian movie–2 hours and 8 minutes. Based on a true story and book written by Timothy Conigrave who died 10 days after finishing the book at the age of 34. It is about the love between him, a drama student, and John Caleo, a football player, who met in school, came of age during the AIDS crisis and were together for the next 15 years. Though some parts may have called for it the movie is free of maudlin sentiment, nor is it indignant or evangelizing, just a beautiful love story that may have a ‘happy ever after ending’ depending on how you see it.
3) “Almost Love”–Netflix–New York set movie–1 hour and 34 minutes. The movie is about 4 couples all at different points in their relationships. There are a black man and white woman who has been together 15 years, 2 gay men celebrating their 5th anniversary, a fat woman and homeless man and a teacher who tutors a high school student who is in love with her. It is a film about intimacy and the difficulties of having a long-lasting meaningful relationship.
4) “365 Days”–Netflix–Italian movie–1 hour and 53 minutes–a very wealthy man kidnaps a woman and gives her 365 days to fall in love with him. It’s not THAT bad though the premise might offend people.5) “Fear City: New York vs The Mafia”–Netflix–2 hours 34 minutes–3 episodes–“The Godfather” is a lot more exciting to watch while this puts you to sleep. I did learn that Trump, among many other builders, paid $19 million to the mob.6) “The Baby-Sitters Club”–Netflix–series–First season–10 episodes–4 hours and 55 minutes–takes place in Stoneybrook, Connecticut. Mostly for teenage girls and since I am not a teenager or a girl it was NOT for me.

Streaming reviews–2 WOWS!   Leave a comment

Inline image
1) “The Speed Cuber”–Netflix–documentary–40 minutes–WOW! I never knew there was such a thing as speedcubing world championships nor was I aware that someone could solve a Rubik’s Cube with one hand let alone before you know they did. I certainly wasn’t aware that I would get so involved in what I would call a ‘sport for nerves’ and regret that I ever thought so or called it that! What really holds your interest is the story that ties Feliks Zemdegs, king of the cubers, and Max Parker who is beating all the former’s records and both becoming fast friends with Max, who is on the autistic spectrum, learning socialization from Feliks. You want both to win the present championship which isn’t possible but more than that you don’t want this film to end. It was made in Australia in Sidney and Melbourne.2) “Love on the Spectrum”–Netflix–reality show–5 episodes–3 hours and 33 minutes–also made in Australia and dealing with autism. I don’t watch ‘looking for love’ a la “The Batchelor” and why I started watching this I have no idea. On the one hand, I know very little about autism and I found this from the get-go joyful, warm and a learning experience. Plus seeing them wanting to fall in love and having families while in many cases lacking what would be called social skills is touching and hurts when they are disappointed and on the other hand a lot of fun when they are having fun. This is definitely on the WOW! scale.By the way, in both movies, the parents of all deserve a lot of credit for being no different than other parents.
3) “Radioactive”–Amazon Pride–movie biography–1 hour and 43 minutes. Under normal circumstances this film would have opened in movie theatres and there would be a lot of word of mouth about Rosamund Pike being nominated for an Oscar, deservedly, and possibly the film, just as Greer Garson and “Madame Curie” were in 1943. Oh, that’s right, you would have to be of a ‘certain age’ to know who Greer Garson and I am so all I could think of was her as I watched this film. Yes, Pike is excellent and this film goes into much more than the other one did and covers a longer period and holds your interest. I do recommend it and wonder why I still want to see the 1943 film again?4) “Desperados”–Netflix–movie–1 hour and 45 minutes–A comedy that isn’t funny, a film about women written by a woman who doesn’t seem to think too much of women! Not worth the time!

“Eastsiders”–series–A MUST SEE for all adults   Leave a comment

Netflix–4 seasons–total 10 hours and 21 minutes—yes, many episodes are 15 minutes or less.I don’t recall what season I started watching this show but it certainly wasn’t the first. In any case, after a few minutes, I was ready to turn it off as I thought it was one of those tacky, stereotypical badly made soft porn gay movies but before I knew it I was caught up and watching it, going back to the first season and first episode.“Eastsiders” started out as a web series on Youtube funded by a Kickstarter campaign then was picked up by for distribution through Logo TV’s website, went on Vimeo’s demand service and then was sold to Netflix and also was made available on DVDs by Wolfe.It is a show about relationships, all kinds, though the main focus is on Thom and Cal who, when we meet them, have been together for 6 years. We quickly get to met Cal’s mother who is divorced from his father, doesn’t really like Thom but acknowledges their relationship. We also meet Kathy, who goes on a “Cats” tour though she can sing but not dance and has been going with Cal’s best friend non-gay Ian for 6 months, her longest relationship. Cal’s sister has broken up with her boyfriend and is now ‘seeing’ a woman. Yes, it is about all kinds of relationships from a drag queen and his manager both defining what ‘versatile’ means and couples who have an ‘open’ relationship and those who don’t but cheat on each other and a black doctor and his desire to have a family and who’s white lover is a house husband and doesn’t want children until they foster a young Latina.  There is the leather crowd, the asexual woman, the old couple staying together because they would be alone otherwise. There are people who drink too much causing problems not only for themselves but for those around them.Yes, there is soft porn and a lot of stereotyping but there isn’t a gay person who won’t learn something not only about themselves and other gay people but also non-gay people just as non-gays will find out that in many ways they are no different than gay people, especially when it comes to relationships. There are implied orgies along with all sorts of combinations just as there all kinds of friendships between men and women, men and men, women and women along with a lot of new terms to viewers.It has, to me, the annoying going back and forth in time and too many of the guys are look-alikes but there was no way I was going to not watch it and I am going to give it a little time before I watch it again. There is nudity, not frontal, and the ‘f’ word along with other ‘4 letter words’ but they are used as people use them in real life. You can see the difference as to when the producers didn’t have much money and when they started getting a ‘bankroll’.
Anyone who watches this will learn some things they never knew and might even see themselves reflected.

Netflix–Reviews–Week of June 29, 2020   Leave a comment

TV reviews week of June 29 2020

1) “Rectify”–4 seasons–23 hours–I am watching this because it was recommended–I am now at the end of the 3rd season–the positives: an interesting story with many twists and turns and each episode basically ending with a cliffhanger–excellent acting–watching a man, after years being locked up on death row, dealing with freedom though in his mind still locked up. Negative–way too long even if stripped of commercials as it obviously is.
 
2) “Roped”–movie–1 hour 31 minutes–an old fashioned ‘they don’t make them like they used to romance–not 1 ‘f’ word–no nudity except for one scene where a cowboy takes his shirt off!! You aren’t missing anything if you don’t watch but if you do it is pleasant.
 
3) “The Show Must Go On: The Queen and Adam Lambert Story”–documentary–1 hour 25 minutes–for fans of Queen, Lambert, The American Idol–realistic account with plenty of performance footage showing Lambert taking over for Freddie Mercury but not imitating him.
 
4) “George Lopez: We’ll Do It For Half”–stand up comedy special–51 minutes–take away the f word (said at least 30 times in the first 10 minutes) used continuously plus so many passing gas gestures and sounds you are left with maybe 30 minutes of anger–I don’t recall laughing once.
 
5) “Wasp Network”–movie–2 hours 9 minutes–Cruz and Ramirez excellent–based on the real-life story of Cuban defectors who infiltrated anti-Castro Miami groups–very confusing at some points–having followed the story before, during and after all this happened I found it interesting plus I always like watching Penelope Cruz but I don’t know if the average moviegoer would be able to sit through it.
