Jurassic World Dominion

Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes I always try and be upfront with whatever audience I have, so here are a few things prefacing my thoughts on Dominion. I, like many, consider Jurassic park to be a benchmark film that solidified a passion I still have today. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen this film, but even now as a blind person, it is one of only a small handful of films that I can watch without audio description and listen to the audio track and actually play the entire thing in my … Continue reading Jurassic World Dominion

Citizen Ruth

Where I Watched it: Paramount Plus English Audio Description Available?: No I went way off script and watched a film with no audio description, that came from the mid-90’s. No, I don’t really have a good reason except Paramount Plus was pushing it on me, and I hadn’t seen it yet. For lack of a better term, Citizen Ruth is an abortion comedy. That’s as weird for me to type out as it is for you to read. And, it totally feels 90’s, complete with a late in the film arrival by Burt Reynolds. Basically, Ruth is a Trainwreck of … Continue reading Citizen Ruth

The Master

The Master Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Jesse Plemons, Laura Dern, Rami Malek Writer: Paul Thomas Anderson Director: Paul Thomas Anderson For me, Paul Thomas Anderson can sometimes bounce around for me in terms of quality. I wasn’t a huge fan of There Will Be Blood, outside of the fantastic performances by Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano. I thought Punch Drunk Love was a mess. Magnolia had strengths and weaknesses, uneven throughout. Boogie Nights is probably his best effort, for me. The Master would be my second choice. At first, The Master starts off as a rather … Continue reading The Master
