The Whale

Where I Watched it: iTunes English Audio Description Provided By Deluxe Narrated By: laura Post Back before I saw the movie, or really before anyone had seen the movie, I was in a Facebook group that prohibited its members from discussing this film because it would bring up emotions for the plus sized community. Basically, someone went on a tirade about how the movie was fat phobic, using the word fat a dozen times, and talking about how triggering all this was. Me, being me, told that guy to fuck right off, explained to me that I believe we are … Continue reading The Whale

The Inspection

Where I Watched it: Apple VOD English Audio Description Provided By Deluxe Narrated By Michelle Deco Jeremy Pope’s awards run seemed to begin and end with his nomination at the Golden Globes, something I thought for sure would result in more attention. I was a little surprised that we ended up with a giant marshmallow of whiteness in the Best Actor block at the Oscars, but after seeing Jeremy Pope’s performance… I kinda understand why he missed the cut. The Inspection, is based on a true story, or at least a real person, and that makes it hard for me … Continue reading The Inspection


Where I Watched It: iTunes (I really need to get screeners, Jesus) English Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Marsha Bartenelli Like i said above, Screeners. I’d love to reduce my costs, since this whole thing generates no income. Hah. Anyway, this A24 underdog did recently manage a Best Actor nomination for Paul Mescal, and it is well deserved. Let’s just get that right out of the way. Even if you haven’t seen Aftersún, just trust the process. Even if he wasn’t in my or your top 5, it’s pretty hard to deny that he’s not within range. It’s … Continue reading Aftersún

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

The Eternal Daughter

Where I watched It: iTunes English Audio Description?: Yes Narrated By: Darren Polish This film has one of the most obsessively and aggressively annoying sound designs. This, and the Amazon movie Nanny, are both designed to drive you mad by creating sound design that isn’t scary, but so obnoxious you lose your damn mind. The whole reason this film exists, and why someone like Martin Scorsese would be a producer (Yes, really) is Tilda Swinton. This is a perfect A24 release. it’s artistic as fuck, and people will debate and dissect this for years to come. The reality is that … Continue reading The Eternal Daughter

After Yang

Where I Watched it: iTunes English Audio Description provided By: Deluxe Narrated by: Darren polish This is one of those films i actually attempted to watch without audio description earlier in the year on Showtime, but it became abundantly clear to me really fast that this film was unwatchable without audio description. I still believe that, even after enjoying it with Darren’s narration. The film is just so entrenched in this indie science fiction world, it’s almost like a love letter to what could be, or what might have been. Colin Farrell, who had the best year of his life, … Continue reading After Yang

Marcel The Shell With Shoes On

Where I Watched it: iTunes English Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated by: laura Post Before you read a review of me gushing over this film, you need to know that i did not understand this Marcel The Shell stuff before. Then, when it got a feature film, I rolled my eyes. I thought it was the equivalent of giving Grumpy Cat his own film. I am pleasantly wrong. What Jenny Slate created with Marcel is almost the purest form of a being, someone who seeks rather simple means of happiness, and for a shell, is about as relatable a … Continue reading Marcel The Shell With Shoes On

Bodies, Bodies, Bodies

Where I Watched It: iTunes (VOD) English Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: William michael Redmond I admit that I’m late to a party about a film about a party, but I have gotten to see how divisive this film is, at least among the movies fans with internet connections. It seems to be a love or hate movie, and for various reasons. Some people feel betrayed, some people wanted something else, some people thought it was something else. I never saw a preview for this film, so I’m not really sure what was marketed, and why people felt … Continue reading Bodies, Bodies, Bodies
