Oscars 2022: Top 20 Power Rankings For Best Actress

It’s that time again to take another look at this year’s Oscar race. Previously, I’ve done Picture, Supporting Actress, and Supporting Actor. Now, we tackle one of the toughest races with an embarrassment of riches, and no obvious front runner (like some other categories might have. So strap in, and let’s go! 1) Danielle Detweiler (Till) Even though I had Till pretty high on my Best Picture rankings, there’s a chance that this film transforms, as it already kind of is, into a conversation about Detweiler’s performance as the mother of the slain Emmett Till. While the film has earned … Continue reading Oscars 2022: Top 20 Power Rankings For Best Actress

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 26th

I spent a great deal of time arguing with Paramount Plus over their audio description for their imported Showtime content. It’s something that I’ve been fighting with them over since the integration. You may not know that Showtime has made more of a commitment super recently to audio describing its shows, which means a lot of recent shows have audio description. Yellowjackets, Dexter New Blood, First Ladies, and The Man Who Fell To Earth among them. However, despite multiple phone calls, and being told that Paramount Plus values me, and they are working on a solution, I have been ignored … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 26th

Mid October Oscar Buzz: The Top 25 Contenders

A lot keeps changing in this race as films keep getting seen by the critics, and their buzz grows or shrinks. Again, a lot of these films haven’t opened yet, but here are the reigning champs for what needs to be on your list this year. 1) The Fablemans Still many people are predicting this as a clear front runner across the board. One of the biggest changes was the announcement that the studio is campaigning Michelle Williams in the lead category. I don’t think she’ll get it, and the voters will ignore the campaign and nominate her in supporting … Continue reading Mid October Oscar Buzz: The Top 25 Contenders

Many films … Continue reading Early Oscar Predictions And Buzz: The Films you Need To Watch

The too Much TV Roundup- September 25th

A few new additions to the rotation. And a surprise return. 1) The Good Fight (Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The best time i had yesterday was watching Carmen try and get longtime guest star Wallace Shawn off a murder charge, knowing that doing so jeopardized her own life. Plus, we got a glimpse at a trial aimed at the NFL, using a fake team of course, and the hint that more Eli Gold is coming. I’m not sure why john Slattery is a series regular, but I hope it doesn’t mean less Gary Cole. I know he’s got … Continue reading The too Much TV Roundup- September 25th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 17th

Five shows today. A fairly average day. 1) What We Do in The Shadows (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the second episode of the season, we still have audio description! And, we had a very odd way to spend a bunch of genie wishes on what was essentially a rapid fire version of The Bachelor. Plus, someone harbors strong feelings for Guillermo. Admittedly, not a lot of Boy/Colin Robinson in this one. Episode Grade: A 2) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes In the second episode of the final season, our least favorite Redcoat is still … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 17th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 16th

Only four shows makes for quite a short list. the problem? Two of them could easily have been number one. Which one did I pick? 1) breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No My exception to the rule of putting non audio description titles on top was tested today against a very strong Umbrella Academy episode. But Breeders packed *A LOT* into the season finale. First, we have the fight still boiling over at home as Paul hanging out with a female neighbor while kicked out of his house has become a major problem, then that evolves into Luke’s problem … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 16th

The Too Much TV Roundup July 19th

Without further adieu. 1) Outer Range (Amazon) English Audio Description Available Yes This show continues on its streak of being unpredictable, and challenging, with amazing performances, and its just so weird. I look forward to each entry. This week, we found out the big secret about who Autumn is, and that was a doozy. honestly, when Royal mentioned that he had a family before falling in the hole, I assumed Autumn was his sister grown up. But, I didńt see that twist coming. Episode Grade A 2) Barry (HBO-HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available- Yes I haven’t really been too … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup July 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

What an oddly mediocre day of television I assembled for myself. 1) Hacks (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes IIn the 7th and likely penultimate half hour of the season, Deborah pitched her new show to the networks, only to have one that was even slightly interested. The funniest moment of the episode was Deborah coming home and finding out that a CD has been playing in her house since the last time she was there… in 2007. And the harshest moment was her “well you already did”, as a response to her agent disappointing her, when he actually quit … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 13th

Actually, I’m trying to make sure I actually remember everything I actually watched yesterday. it was a lot, and I didn’t write anything down, because I thought my memory could sustain a 24 hour period. I think this is it. I think. 1) Better Call Saul (AMC/Netflix) English Audio Description: On Netflix I’m actually catching up still on Season 5, since Netflix and AMC in their infinite wisdom waited until right before Season 6 dropped to release Season 5 on Netflix. Frustrating, I know, but this show doesn’t run with audio description on AMC, so perhaps, I’ll just wait for … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 13th
