Morbius

Where I Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description Available?: Yes Yes. I still watched Morbius in September after months of people mocking the film. I kept an open mind. I never go into a Marvel film, Disney or Sony, and assume I’m going to dislike it. But the way some people are talking about this thing, you’d think it already won the Razzie. If nothing, Morbius has forced Jared Leto into his most human, natural performance in a long time. He can’t hide behind a fat suit, extensive makeup, or a weird accent, he just has to be a guy … Continue reading Morbius

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

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

The Too Much tV Roundup- August 18th

Five shows today. one of them is Marvel. Did it hit the top? 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Essentially, Solar Opposites has created this secondary universe within its own show that we care about in almost the same way Pinky and the Brain caught on as a spinoff from Anamaniacs. Here, I think spinning them off could be a mistake. Not knowing the ins and outs of all the characters within the wall really makes for this bizarrely entertaining side trip whenever the show decides to take it. Add to that, the Hululand references, which were all … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- August 18th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

What an oddly mediocre day of television I assembled for myself. 1) Hacks (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes IIn the 7th and likely penultimate half hour of the season, Deborah pitched her new show to the networks, only to have one that was even slightly interested. The funniest moment of the episode was Deborah coming home and finding out that a CD has been playing in her house since the last time she was there… in 2007. And the harshest moment was her “well you already did”, as a response to her agent disappointing her, when he actually quit … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

Dr Strange and the Multiverse Of madness

Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Xochil Gomez, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, and a lot of spoilers. Directed By: Sam Raimi Where I Watched It: Disney Plus English Audio Description Available?: Yes Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Jedidiah Barton The Plot: Serving as both a natural continuation of Dr. Strange’s storyline since we last saw him in No Way Home, and Wanda’s development since we last saw her in WandaVision, this horror film brings together two friends, and unfortunately makes them foes, as a new hero arises with the power to traverse the multiverse… of madness! Don’t worry, … Continue reading Dr Strange and the Multiverse Of madness

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 15th

Five shows should be easy to rank. Right? I also squeezed in a movie, so this short list is somewhat deceiving. 1) Killing It (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The 6th episode of this increasingly more and more hilarious sitcom found Craig outside in a massive line waiting to vote just to make his daughter happy, while being followed around by an insurance agent. Meanwhile, Jillian’s sister is the literal worst. Or maybe her dogs are. I can’t tell. Probably both. Episode Grade: A 2) Miss Marvel (Disney Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the second episode, we … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 15th

Dr. Strange (A Second look)

Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelson, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Benjamin Bratt. Directed By: Scott Derrickson Where I Watched it: Disney Plus English Audio Description Available?: Yes Narrated By: Darrin Rivetz The Plot: I’m pretty certain I’ve done this before, but this is the origin story of Dr Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch), a brilliant and somewhat egotistical surgeon, who after barely surviving a car accident seeks out any solution he can possibly find that could lead him to a full recovery and back to the operating room. However, what he didn’t expect was that his … Continue reading Dr. Strange (A Second look)

The Too Much TV Roundup

It’s Monday again, and that means it’s time for me to drop my top 10 picks from the television I watched last week. I’m going to spoil the surprise and say that I’m far enough behind I didn’t even bother starting the final seasons of Ozark or Grace and Frankie yet. There’s just TOO MUCH TV! 1) Better Things (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No Just like I started last week’s list off by bidding Black-ish farewell, I’m starting this week by saying goodbye to Pamela Adlon’s Better Things. it’s never been my favorite show, but I’ve always thought she … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup

Moon Knight (Pilot)

Starring: Oscar Issac and Ethan Hawke. Where I Watched It: Disney Plus English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: Steven (Issac) works at a museum. This is also the Marvel introduction to Moon Knight. So, trying to explain this to you would involve spoilers. But, yes, Steven works at a museum. What Works: I know the critics have been getting screener access to the first four episodes, but I like to review pilots, because you’re never guaranteed an audience will come back for more if the pilot doesn’t work. So it really doesn’t matter if the show picks up in … Continue reading Moon Knight (Pilot)

Spider-Man: No Way home

Starring: Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei, Jon Faverau, Thomas Haden Church, Jamie Fox, Rhys Ifans, Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, JK Simmons, Benedict Wong, Tony Revelori, and Charlie Cox. Directed By Jon Watts Where I Watched It: Apple VOD (Purchase!) English audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: Picking up after the events of Far From home, the world knows Peter Parker (Holland) is Spider-Man, which complicates his life, as well as those of his friends and family. in an effort to restore some balance, Peter turns to Dr Strange (Cumberbatch) to cast a … Continue reading Spider-Man: No Way home

The Eternals

Starring: Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Rudolf, Kit Harrington, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry, and bill Skarsgard. Directed By: Chloe zhao Where I Watched it: Disney Plus English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: Inexplicably set in the same marvel Cinematic universe as everything else that has been happening, there are these celestial beings that travel all throughout the universe, and on Earth there is a specific group, The Eternals, that are here for a reason not even they fully understand… nor will the audience. What Works:…I’ll get back to you on that. What Doesn’t WWork: … Continue reading The Eternals
