Where I Watched it: Disney plus English Audio Description?: Yes Last year,I stumbled upon a random straight-to-video Disney Plus release with Better Nate Than Never that wound up being one of the best of almost 300 films I saw in 2022. There is a chance that Crater, which really took me by surprise, will be that film this year. I’ve already participated in spirited online debates defending this film, which hails from the director of The Stanford Prison Experiment (shocking, I know). Apparently, the trailers (which I don’t really ever watch anymore), showed a happy movie. Crater is not happy. … Continue reading Crater

Still: A Michael j Fox Story

Where I Watched It: Apple Plus English Audio Description?: Yes This has been a pretty solid year for documentaries about individuals in the business, especially those still alive, who are getting to contribute to their own stories. Pamela Anderson, Judy Blume, and Wynonna Judd. Now, Michael j Fox brings his life story to the big screen. I’m a big Fox fan. I do not care that The Secret of My Success wasn’t a critical darling. i love it. I love Greedy. of course, it goes without saying that Back To the Future is iconic, and his performance in The American … Continue reading Still: A Michael j Fox Story

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/31/23

Lots of interesting TV news. Danny Masterson clearly will not be appearing on That 90’s Show ever. Kim Cattral will be returning to And Just Like That next season. Oh, and it’s technically June 1st, so Happy Pride Month! 12) Fatal Attraction (Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Not Yet Renewed I think this just fell on bottom due to several things. First, I’m not a big fan of the monotone narration. Not that there’s the best way to describe when a man enters a woman and starts thrusting, but there’s something just so lifeless about how those scenes … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/31/23

The Mother

Where I Watched It: Netflix English Audio Description Provided By: international Digial center Written by: Steven Christopher Narrated By: Jamie Lemcheck I enjoy Jenny from the block, and I do wish the best for her career. It’s mostly vapid and forgettable romcoms, but her career has spanned quite a broad period of time. Sandwiched into that spectrum of time are these little glimmers that she’s capable of so much more, and just needs to choose her projects better. Whether your choose to point out her almost Oscar nominated turn in Hustlers or her fan favorite turn as Karen Sisco in … Continue reading The Mother

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/30/23

I was a little busier than usual yesterday. But, I still tried to squeeze in the shows. I got a few. 4) Beef (Netflix) English audio Description?: Yes Status: Limited I guess the mother in law wants some money, as do some bumbling side characters, which can only lead to one thing. This is a strange series about a group of individuals who need to do quite a bit of self reflection. Episode Grade: B- 3) Doogie Kamaloha MD (Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Not Yet Renwed After that first kiss, Mahala spends the rest of the episode … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/30/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/29/23

I watched way too much TV yesterday. i know a lot of these are half hours, but even for me. My God. Wow. 16) Saint X (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Not Yet Renewed You know, this was one of the first things I watched, and I can’t remember anything about it. It’s the second episode, and I remember there’s a mystery around a murdered girl, and the show is on an island. I got very little beyond that. It wasn’t bad enough for me to remember hating it, it’s just mediocre enough for me to not care. Episode … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/29/23


Where I Watched it: Amazon English Audio Description Provided By: Media Access Group Narrated by: Inger Tudor Generally by the time I get around to the print versions of my reviews, I’m always a little bit behind my YouTube channel. It’s just so much easier to record and upload, than to construct my thoughts while fighting aggressive auto-correct, and a screen reader that often reads a word that sounds so much like the word I meant to use. But, even with the few more 2023 films I’ve seen since Air, it’s still at number one for me for the year. … Continue reading Air

Ever After: A Cinderella Story

Where I Watched it: Disney Plus English Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Marsha Bartenelli Perhaps you chose this review expecting me to tell you how I’ve loved this film for all of it’s years. Sadly, despite this film having its own following, I must admit that i did not see this until just now. not that there aren’t a dozen Cinderella stories out there, starring anyone from Hilary Duff to Camilla Cabello. If there’s one thing that doesn’t need a retread, it’s probably this phoenix that rises from her ashes every couple of years in a new iteration. … Continue reading Ever After: A Cinderella Story

Smokey and the Bandit

Where i Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated by: Tanzi Alexander Don’t get to excited. I already checked Netflix, and the sequel doesn’t ahve audio description. This was my first time through on this film. It always looked so cheesy, and it always felt like one of those films my Dad was supposed to love but its appeal was meant to elude me. however, as i sit here in the midst of a tenth film in the Fast and Furious franchise, knowing one day I’ll have to explain this period in time and what a “Vin … Continue reading Smokey and the Bandit

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/28/23

Last night, people who were up to date on Succession and Barry said farewell to the hit shows. I spent the time contemplating what the hell I just watched in one of these shows, and how I planned to grade and talk about it. It wasn’t one of the big shows from last night, but i started something that was… interesting. 12) Clone high (MAX) English Audio Description?: no Status: Ended I kinda just wanted to check out the original series a bit before watching the revival. I barely remember the show. The pilot basically centered around Abe Lincoln buying … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/28/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/27/23

Not aware of any major TV news, except I noticed that Apple is still calling this coming episode of Ted Lasso a Season 3 finale. Jason Sudekis has been pretty clear that this is the final season. I don’t know what the disconnect is. It also seems like with Ted likely moving home, and the rest of the cast living in the UK, if there was a Season 4, they’d have to dump the entire British Cast and follow Ted at a new team, or dump the title character, both decisions that could ruin a good thing. 8) Great Expectations … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/27/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/26/23

Yesterday, the first in a trio of finales hit the TV world as Maisel fans said goodbye to their favorite program. Coming up, in less than a week, are the series finales of Succession and Ted Lasso. It’s a sad week. 11) The Adventures of The Gummi Bears (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: No Status: Ended Despite my love of this show when I was a kid, this third episode did absolutely nothing for me.Part 1 involved a surprisingly friendly dragon, and part 2 involved… well… I don’t know because it was hard to follow without audio description. But one … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/26/23

John wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum

Where I Watched It: not On peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes If you follow my every move, you already heard what i had to say about having watched john Wick on Peacock, and also Chapter 2. Neither had audio description, but both left the service at the beginning of May. I last saw them on FreeVee. The problem is, I’m still trying to finish this cycle, and be ready for Chapter 4, but I’ve also never seen Parabellum. it was easier for me to sit through the first two films without audio description to allow myself the opportunity to … Continue reading John wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum

But I’m A Cheerleader

Where I Watched it: Amazon English Audio Description?: No When you first come out of the closet, the first thing you are given (aside from a Rupaul lexicon so you know all the trendiest phrases) is a copy of But I’m A Cheerleader. I lost mine. I know it’s around here somewhere, but according to the marketing of bros, nothing existed before that, so perhaps this was just a 90’s fever dream. The 90’s certainly were a very interesting time in the evolution of independent cinema, especially queer cinema. I sadly grew up in the Bible Belt, so our movie … Continue reading But I’m A Cheerleader

A Man Called Otto

Where I Watched It: Netflix English Audio Description?: Yes Narrated By: Andrea Breton You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. While I am unfamiliar with both the original film and book on which this English language adaptation is based, I suspect there are many like me. I definitely think we should do a better job of helping American audiences enjoy International cinema, instead of just remaking it. but, without remakes, we’d never have gotten The Departed or Coda. Not that A Man Called Otto is necessarily on that level, but with Tom Hanks being in three films in 2022, this is … Continue reading A Man Called Otto
