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

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/25/23

I did not plan this today. But i watched a new episode of Citadel the same day Amazon greenlit a second season. So that is my big TV news story to rock your world this morning. 12) All In The Family (FreeVee) English audio Description?: No Status: Ended Other than remembering Rob Reiner yelling about his Polish heritage at one point, my sleep last night completely erased what this episode was about. Occasionally that’s a problem with a show when i watch this much stuff in one day. Episode Grade: ? 11) Futurama (Hulu) English Audio Description?: No Status: Revived … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/25/23


Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description?: Yes Do you love Willem Dafoe? I don’t mean, do you enjoy him on occasion. I mean, if we were in some desert island scenario and it was just you and Willem Dafoe, would you be OK? because, he’s basically the only person in this movie. There are some other really bit parts from actors seen on security cameras, or in dream sequences, but the entire film is Willem Dafoe playing a thief who gets trapped in an upscale condo fully decked out with all the smart house elements, and the owners … Continue reading Inside

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/24/23

Well, my first day with MAX and I can say that I didn’t have a problem migrating. it did return a title I had removed from my Continue Watching. So, it’s aggressively trying to get me to watch something and give it a second chance. And, it refuses to play Shazam: Fury of The Gods, but other things went just fine. How has your MAX experience been? Are you ever so happy that we did all of this so you could have more reality TV? 9) Florida Man (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Limited Series I’m not sure what … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/24/23

The Thing (2011)

Where I Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description?: Yes Narrated By: Miles Neff Miles is such a great narrator. I love how he seemingly is always fully engaged in whatever he’s narrating, giving it that fanboy charm that helps to keep you engaged. It works great for the Star Wars films he’s narrated, but when it comes to this remake of The Thing, which features some of the weirdest, goriest, most creative body horror I’ve experienced in audio description, I kinda feel like Santa Claus got caught watching porn or something. I associate Miles with happiness. This is not happy. … Continue reading The Thing (2011)

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/23/23

HBOMAX became MAX. Peacock is up next, and look for the streamlined Cock coming soon. Just kidding. or am I? Anyway, the big news sources read me, clearly, since in my review for the American Idol finale yesterday i devoted that time to writing about how Idol had completely ignored former winner Just Sam, who is back to having to busk for money in the subways.Later in the day, Deadline broke that as a news story. hah. 7) Dead Ringers (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Limited series Well, this is a very odd series. I thought episode three definitely … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/23/23

Wynonna Judd: Between Hell and Hallelujah

Where I Watched it: Paramount Plus English Audio Description??: Yes This could have been an even darker film had Wynonna chosen to spend the duration talking about her mother. However, this is less about the tragic way Naomi Judd left us so suddenly, and more about how Wynonna put herself together, with the help of country music, to go ahead with the promised tour that was supposed to be her and Naomi. I’ve always known who The judds were, but never could claim being a massive fan. But the pacing of this film, and the care it takes in telling … Continue reading Wynonna Judd: Between Hell and Hallelujah
