Blonde

Where I Watched It: Netflix Audio description Provided By: Post Haste Digital Written By William McDonaugh Narrated By: Kaitlyn Elizabeth You are going to read a lot of viewpoints out there on the internet from a dozen sources about Blonde. It will be remembered as one of the most divisive film of the year. My review might contain some spoilers, but only to refer to specific content within the film. Since Blonde was released, until my writing of this review, I’ve marinated a lot. I’ve seen reactions, and most of them have been incredibly negative, but everyone has a point. … Continue reading Blonde

I Used To Be Famous

Where I watched It: Netflix English Audio Description?: Yes Narrated By: Neville Watchhurst (?) If you ran into me on the street and i had five seconds to tell you whether or not you might like this, I would say… did you like About A Boy? Of all the films I had seen, that was the one that rang most true. I Used To Be Famous features a fallen, one time rock star trying to regain his footing, when he meets a boy on the spectrum, who is a phenomenal drummer. It’s a chance encounter, he knows nothing about the … Continue reading I Used To Be Famous

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 1st

Today I say goodbye to a show I’m certain would make my 100 list of my favorite shows of all time. We had quite a run. only three seasons, but those three were magnificent. So, of course, right on top… 1) Locke and key (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I’m sad now. Not just because the show emotionally manipulated me with that time shift key one more time, but because this is it. The final episode. The Lockes defeated Gideon, and the only losses were a character we knew next to nothing about (RIP Gordy) and one who needed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 1st

A Jazz Man’s Blues

Where I Watched it: Netflix Audio Description Provided By: International Digital Center Written By: Liz Gutman Narrated By: Sri Gordon It’s a Tyler Perry film. For those of you who have stumbled onto this review, this website, and are hoping for me to expound upon this project in any sort of way, please remember that I am a white blind film critic. While i believe that there are themes that are universal in every film, and we should always strive to expand our horizons, and I have no problem watching films full of people who are not me (that would … Continue reading A Jazz Man’s Blues

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

Heading into Halloween season, I leave September behind with a few thoughts, and some new additions to the rotation. 1) The Patient (hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes See how easy that was Hulu? All you needed to do to stop getting shitty scores on this show was actually add audio description so I could follow the show. in Episode 4, the tension continues to mount, as the trapped doctor tries to communicate with the next likely victim, knowing that if he can’t get a breakthrough with his serial killer patient, the guy across the hall is dead. Not only … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

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

Lou

Where I Watched It: Netflix English Audio Description Provided By: Descriptive Video Works Sometimes, I really enjoy the fact that I don’t watch trailers (since they rarely have audio description). That was I can be surprised by something like Lou, where I just launch Netflix and see “from producer JJ Abrams”, and that’s really all I needed to know. What I checked in for is one of those “particular set of skills” films that (Thank God) does not star Liam Neeson. Instead, for something completely different, we’ve got Allison Janney ready to kick someone’s face in. And if you aren’t … Continue reading Lou

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 27th

A show that did not have audio description last week on a certain platform does this week. Did it move up in the rankings? Let’s find out. 1) The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes The third episode of the season finds June trying to find out what purple means, Serena trying to find out if she’s done enough to earn respect in a place designed to subjugate women, Aunt Lydia pleading and apologizing to God, and a lot of other little treats. Another really powerful ending, and no matter how much I need to see Serena not survive … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 27th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 23rd

Sometimes I wonder if I give out too many perfect A grades to series, and I want it to be earned when the episode warrants it. So, we have only one clear winner today. 1) Harley Quinn (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes In the penultimate episode of the season (this show has been renewed already), Harley, ivy, and the gang have to team up with Batgirl and nightwing to save Gotham as Bruce accidentally triggered a zombie apocalypse. However, ivy believes that because these zombies are infused with stuff from Frank, she can control them, so she sets off … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 23rd

End Of The Road

Where I Watched It: Netflix Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Jedidiah Barton One of my favorite movies from the 90’s was Breakdown. It’s a rather underrated film where Kurt Russell and Kathleen Quinlan are on a road trip, their car… I’ll let you guess what happens to the car…. And they find themselves in this nightmare. Russell spends the whole movie trying to find his wife, and it seems like everyone is trying to gaslight him into believing she doesn’t exist. Most of these people are earthy, somewhat redneck, back woodsy types. Simple small town folk. Predominantly white. I’m … Continue reading End Of The Road

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 17th (Special Edition)

So, what in the hell could possibly make this list a special edition? You will find out right away. While I’m not sure that technically speaking the top show was the best thing I watched yesterday, there’s a very special reason it sits there. 1) Tales Of The Walking Dead (AMC Plus) English Audio Description: Yes! you read that part right. English. Audio. Description. AMC Plus. That’s a brand new offering for us blind folk, opening up another door, and another choice to those who are interested in the family of content currently offered on AMC Plus (which includes the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 17th (Special Edition)

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

I’m quite conflicted today, as many of these shows are quite close in the lineup. 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes In a world where a lot of the shows I watched today tried their hands at some different tricks, the 8th episode of Solar Opposites was wildly on brand, featuring dueling storylines between the people in the wall trying to escape, but essentially running into Morlock versions of themselves, while the main family enter this trippy reality where people are being replaced, and there’s a Hall of Betrayal. Is eating someone’s taki’s really anywhere near the level … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

I Came By

Where I Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description?: no But…. British Audio Description?: Yes! Honestly, there’s a first time for everything, and that’s the first time I’ve noticed that my audio description was labeled specifically as British, not English. It’s the same language, so it’s not a big deal, all they’re asking of you is to know that a torch is a flashlight. And I’d rather have 100% audio description across all titles, and have to remind myself that boot means trunk than to not have any audio description. And this horror(?) thriller (?) is really like the British answer … Continue reading I Came By
