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

Ant Man and the Wasp

Where I Watched It: Disney Plus English Audio Description Provided By: Deluxe No, we’re not at QuantumMania yet. I revisited the first two bug hero films to get my bearings before going full on QuantumMania. That task just seems so daunting. I’ve never experienced QuantumMania before, and I’m not sure what that will be like. In the second film, Scott is on home arrest, trying to pay his penance for the events of Civil War. Of course, soon enough, he has to rejoin with the rest of the Ant-Man family, and Hope, who is now the Wasp. There’s more backstory … Continue reading Ant Man and the Wasp

John Wick Chapter 2

Where I Watched it: peacock English Audio Description?: no As part of my quest to see all the john Wick films again, while they were still on peacock, this didn’t have audio description. A film like this not having audio description is pointless. The john Wick franchise is not known for expository dialogue.

The first two films in the franchise pre-dated my blindness, so I could play around with sitting down to talk about why this film doesn’t work without … Continue reading John Wick Chapter 2

The School For Good And Evil

Where I Watched It: Netflix Audio Description Provided By: International Digital Center Written By: Betty Capone Narrated By: Sri Gordon Netflix is obviously chasing the next big YA adaptation, as they are throwing everything they have at this super similar, but just different enough adventure that you may have felt like you’ve seen before.

This feels more like a film directed by perhaps Ava Duvernay, as I felt more of her Wrinkle … Continue reading The School For Good And Evil

Apocalypse Now Redux

Where I Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description Available?: Yes Narrated By: Tanzi Alexander Francis Ford Coppola’s other extremely long classic epic finally got checked off my list. I didn’t put much thought into the “Redux” version, as it was the first time I was watching either version, and I just needed audio description. I figured this was a little different, but I had no idea this was almost an hour longer than the original. Good lord. And this thing is so dark and depressing, I can’t see myself wanting to jump back in to see the original cut even … Continue reading Apocalypse Now Redux
