My Year Of Dicks

Where I Watched It: Hulu English Audio Description?: No It is a lot easier for me to get a YouTube review out quickly than to put my thoughts in an actual standard review, which is why this review has evolved a bit since I first saw and reviewed My Year of Dicks. The Oscar nominated short is still lacking audio description on hulu, which wouldn’t surprise any of us blind regulars. If there was one service most likely to not care enough to provide audio description unless explicitly required to do so, it’s Hulu. But, something very interesting happened. I … Continue reading My Year Of Dicks

Le Pupilar

Where I Watched it: Disney Plus English Audio Description?: Yes I love how Disney Plus managed an audio description track for their Oscar nominated short narrative, but when The territory was a shortlisted documentary (ultimately not nominated), they didn’t. Apparently, you have to get more than rave reviews. That nomination matters. I really don’t know what to say about a dramatic narrative short film, as short films have never really been my cup of tea. So, I approached this Oscar entry like it might be an episode in an anthology series about stories told around Christmas. This one happens to … Continue reading Le Pupilar

The Best Of 2021

With the Oscar’s swiftly approaching, and my Oscar final predictions released yesterday, it’s finally time to discuss who i think actually should have been nominated in the major categories, and who I would vote to win. This list will be completely different than the Oscar list, because I am just myself, I have no guild or board of people to mess up my nomination process, and my awards mean nothing. No actor is sitting out there waiting with bated breath to see if they will be included on Mac The Movieguy’s Best of 2021. Which is great for me, because … Continue reading The Best Of 2021

My Very Final Official Oscar Predictions

So for those of you movie loving folk out there doing Oscar pools, let me be your guide. or not. Do your thing. Maybe your shaman already told you who will win.

Documentary Directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen Where i Watched it: Hulu English Audio Description Available?: Not At This Time The Review: Normally, I break my reviews into sections, but my unorthodox and limited ability to view and discuss the Oscar nominated Flee has left me looking for a new format in which to discuss things that affected my ability to enjoy the film, that are out of the control of the filmmaker. Hulu is currently the streaming rights holder to this documentary, and when it first premiered on the streaming service, it premiered without any audio tracks other than default, … Continue reading Flee
