Hocus Pocus 2

Where I Watched It: Disney Plus Audio Description Provided By: (If you managed to understand that, you should be a code breaker for the CIA) Written By: Lindsay West Narrated By: Laura Post This is one of those things that magically happens when fans will something into existence. It’s like Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but the Disney equivalent. People have loved the Sanderson sisters for the better part of almost 30 years, despite the box office failure of that film. It has thrived, and fans even got a Hocus Pocus themed addition to Mickey’s not So Scary Halloween a few … Continue reading Hocus Pocus 2

Hocus Pocus

Where I Watched It: Disney Plus Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Laura Post We’ve got another winner here, a laura Post audio description on a Disney classic. I’ve really come to appreciate her voice on what seems like largely Disney fare, but certainly family friendly. I think if I were a parent watching films with my kids, or a sighted parent watching a film with a blind child, I would favor Laura Post as my narrator. She’s always delightful, charming, and has a quality that works very well for these films, and I can see why Disney keeps … Continue reading Hocus Pocus

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 29th

I managed to keep power during the hurricane, and with nothing else do do, I watched a lot of tv/film. So here’s a rather large list for a Thursday. 1) She Hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes So, for fans of obscure Marvel characters, you got your wish this episode. However, why I put this on top is that the show has given Tim Roth’s A-Bob a chance to really grow, in a way where he might even be useful one day. He managed to sit down with Jen and really work some stuff out, while the least surprising … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 29th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 28th

Since I live in the path of hurricane Ian, and I don’t know my power/wifi status tomorrow, you’re getting this early. This is actually what I watched today, but would normally write about on Thursday. 1) The Rookie (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes first of all, not only is the Rookie one of the best described shows on TV (definitely network TV), but it was so nice to see the whole gang together again, and in a thrilling Season premiere that saw one recurring character with their life very much in the balance. So glad to have this show … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 28th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

I got through several shows today, mostly because they were all half hour shows. Which one landed on top? 1) Paper Girls (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes That’s right.A cancelled and abandoned Amazon show topped the list today, as we focused a lot on Mac’s relationship with her brother Dylan, while also showing Ellen how the grown up version of herself had grown so far apart from her sister. All of this while there is a giant freaking robot in the barn out back. And then, our terminator seems to be ever so close to snatching Mac, before KJ saves … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 20th

Today was interesting to be sure. A brand new show, and an attempt to watch something presented in a new format. 1) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So, as we march onward to the series finale, Ellie led Gideon to an alive former classmate, someone who was very nice back in high school days, and really wanted to be a part of their group, but they never let him in on the secret. They actually went in one time to remove a memory from his head, and it was that point that they hid the key. But, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 20th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 19th

It was a nice day. I felt like some shows read my blog and addressed issues I was having, while others did not. i know, that’s crazy, but it feels nice to feel like you’ve been heard. Speaking of, is Disney Plus really going to let their strong commitment to audio description die with Dancing With The Stars? I thought that might be the plus side of it moving to Disney Plus, but alas, as of this writing, it has no audio description. I’m not reviewing it, as I only watched it long enough to realize there was no audio … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 19th

Thor: Love and Thunder

Where I Watched It: Disney Plus English Audio Description?: Yes The first thing you need to know about me is that going in, I’m a huge Thor Ragnarok fan. It is very much one of my favorite Marvel films ever. What Taika managed to do with a franchise that was laid to rest with The Dark World is amazing. Some people thought he turned Thor into a joke, and I think he really gave a breath of life into a character whose first two films left people rather tepid. So, I was predisposed to love this film. I have yet … Continue reading Thor: Love and Thunder

Pinocchio (2022)

Where I Watched it: Disney Plus Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Laura Post If we are being really honest about these Disney live action remakes, the ones that work seem to be the ones that take a risk and offer something brand new. Something other than just a beat for beat remake, but instead try and show us something we didn’t get to see in the animated version. They also rely heavily on your nostalgic connection to the original piece, casting, and direction. Despite the fact that many critics would dump all the remakes, there’s an argument to … Continue reading Pinocchio (2022)

Pinocchio (1940)

Where I Watched it: Shudder. (Wouldn’t that be hilarious?). Actually, Disney Plus. Audio Description Provided By: The Media Access Group When I was a little one, despite me not being able to remember any of it, my Mom was always taking me to the movies. That’s probably why i have this addiction today. She also felt the need to document everything through photo albums, so anytime I went to the movies, there was some representation of it in the album, almost always the movie ticket, next to a cut out of the advertisement in the paper. Yes, you young ones. … Continue reading Pinocchio (1940)

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 15th

Is it possible? A cancelled TV show on top? Yes. yes it is. 1) Paper Girls (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Amazon’s unjustly cancelled sci-fi drama continued to be really weird in Episode 3. This show is like an onion, and you will not know what the hell is going on until the center, which will take a while. That can be very rewarding. in this episode, we saw Mac find her brother, who is shocked to see her, and thinks it’s some kind of joke because mac died at 16. But, after seeing the walkman with his cassette tape … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

Well, how about those Emmy’s? Did your favorite win? With hundreds of scripted programs on the air, I’m going to guess probably not for many of you. Most of your favorite shows likely won’t even be nominated ever. But hey, at least they are predictable. 1) Love, Victor (Hulu/ Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes A perfect storm happened that allowed the series finale of Love Victor to rise to the top. House Of The Dragon produced its worst episode yet, and the other contenders just didn’t hit all the right notes. Love Victor figured out that what its audience … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 8th

Just wait till we get to the bottom of this list. you just wait. 1) She Hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes I do not care where she puts the Y in her name, but Polly Guggenheim is welcome back on this show, or any show, or any MCU movie ever in my opinion. If it were me, I’d be signing her to a massive contract right now, so she can just appear as needed, whenever we need a good laugh. Hilarious work, and in an episode where Marvel was obviously screwing with us with Donny Blaze, by making … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 8th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

Five shows enter the thunder dome. One comes out on top. one, honestly, really came out on top and if there isn’t another season I’m gonna cry. 1) The Orville (Hulu/Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The 8th episode of the season was definitely a bit long, but so rewarding. A routine trip to Machlan to view the women’s colony to make sure they were living up to their agreement gave Bortis’s daughter the opportunity to meet other females, including the one brave enough to reveal herself and speak on behalf of her when she was just a baby. Things … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 2nd

Well, yes, this is a roundup, but pretty much also serves as my official thoughts on the new Lord of The Rings series. 1) Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of power (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes So, it has arrived. And it was worth the arrival. JA Bayona, whose directorial career is a mixed bag of sorts, manages to direct a rather well done pilot for a series set in Middle earth. It has an expansive feel to it, much the same way a Game of Thrones series does, or even something like The Wheel Of Time, where … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 2nd
