Mac and Rita

Where i watched it: iTunes (though it’s now on Hulu) English Audio Description?: no I’m not sure even audio description would have saved this film. I don’t know why Diane Keaton is in this. She did Annie hall. Why does she keep choosing these mediocre and terrible films? It’s like she keeps hoping she’ll have another Something’s Gotta Give, but Mac and Rita just isn’t funny. The plot revolves around a young woman who is such an old soul that (you really don’t want to know how, it’s too stupid) becomes an old lady. Suddenly, MAc becomes Rita. hilarious. Most … Continue reading Mac and Rita

Where I Watched it: iTunes English Audio Description?: Yes Owen kline’s directorial debut is a bold statement for the kinds of stories he wants to tell moving forward. The son of Kevin Kline, who does have an acting background himself, has decided to shoot for this john Waters-lite style. He’s not quite subversive enough to go full Pink Flamingos, but tehre’s something about kline’s adoration for garbage, and featuring a character who believes the only way to ever be a true artist is to start from the bottom. Kline is saying a lot here, not just about artists, but possibly … Continue reading Funny Pages

Spotted. Dumpster fire of a streaming service cancels popular show. ZOZO, RIP, Gossip Girl. I didn’t watch much TV yesterday. Sorry. 4) his Dark Materials (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes I’m at the point where after a few episodes into the third season, I’m not even sure I care if I finish. Perhaps if I had read Phillip Pullman’s books, but I’m so far behind on TV, and this show is dumping religious allegories on me, talking about whether or not Ruth Wilson’s character can be let into the Heaven stand in, and how the original creator isn’t even … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/19/23

Ten shows enter the Thunderdome. One will prevail. 10) Guillermo Del Toro’s Bullshit English Audio Description?: Yes Earlier on in the series I was making excuses for this. It’s a horror series. It’s supposed to be fucked up. But the acting is pretty awful across the board, which there is no excuse. Mia Goth is out there getting awards for pearl. you can act and be in a horror film. But, I suppose at least thank god there wasn’t a decapitated child’s head baking in an oven… Episode Grade: C- 9) Inside Man (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes The second … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/16/23

The Flagmakers

Where I Watched it: Disney Plus English Audio Description provided By Zoo Digital Narrated by Tanzi Alexander The Flagmakers is one of the lucky few films on the short list for Best Documentary Short, and it has the pleasure of being featured on Disney Plus. Although, if you’re asking me if I believe the members of the Documentary branch of the Academy care about Disney Plus… It’s a great find, in terms of a story the world knew nothing about. Make a film about the most American thing anyone could think of, and show the world that most of those … Continue reading The Flagmakers

A couple of shows, way less than Saturday, but also squeezed a movie in there. So, let’s see who landed on top. Even I don’t know as I’m writing this sentence who will arrive at the top. I’m as immersed in the anticipation as you are.

I think I might have actually watched too much television. 15) The Sex lives Of College Girls (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes When you watch 15 different TV shows, you are bound to have erased one from your memory.
