The Too Much TV Roundup: 03/13/23

First off, I wanted to start off todays list by stating that yesterday, when I mentioned the Oscar’s Red Carpet, the way I chose to phrase my snarky comments made it almost sound like I didn’t like the audio description team. My comments were directed specifically at the hosts responsible for asking inane questions, like how Hugh Grant enjoyed his cameo in Glass Onion. Now with that out of the way, here we go. 8) Animal Control (FOX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No This is one of those shows where the lead actor has bought it some grace period, but I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup: 03/13/23

Shotgun Wedding

Where I Watched it: Amazon English Audio Description Provided By Deluxe Narrated By: Roy Samuelson I would love to control Jennifer Lopez’s acting career. Like, feed me her scripts, and I’ll choose the projects. I know being seen and admired still at her age is an achievement. Running around doing a romcom on a tropical island a guy 17 years younger than her seemed like a catch, but then, that co-star had some problems with…. Normal stuff… like DM’s and cannibalism. So instead of trotting around with someone who reminds her audience how coveted of a starlet she still is… … Continue reading Shotgun Wedding

This Place Rules

Where I Watched It: HBo MAX English Audio Description provided By: point360 Narrated By: Roy Samuelson I saw this over a month ago. I watched so many films over my winter break, plus the films I continue to watch, that catching up on reviews has been a bit of a nightmare. So, pretend this review happened a month ago before the allegations against Andrew Callahan came about. To be respectful to those currently in that state of affairs, i will be making this short, because it’s hard to be effusive about someone’s work while they are also in the middle … Continue reading This Place Rules

It’s A Wonderful Binge

Where I Watched It: hulu English Audio Description Provided By: Pointe 360 Narrated By: Roy Samuelson Many moons ago, Nostradamus predicted that two children of the devil would be born, and unto the world, they would completely miss the boat on how to make parody/spoof films, and thus their reign of terror would result in a series of films that are universally despised. This includes everything from the aptly titled Date movie and Epic Movie to Meet The Spartans and The Hungover Games. If you told me they directed this, i would not be shocked. This film, which shockingly features … Continue reading It’s A Wonderful Binge

The Tree Of Life

Where I Watched it: HBo MAX English Audio Description Provided by: Point 360 Written By: Connor DeWolfe Narrated By: Roy Samuelson I’ve seen quite a few documentaries this year, and I have no idea which ones are even eligible for Oscar’s consideration. but, if there is any justice in this, The Tree Of Life will make the cut. It’s sad that this film exists. It exists only because a racist walked into a synagogue and decided to start shooting people based on his anti-Semitic beliefs. Had that never happened, this documentary would not exist. Really, any documentary based on a … Continue reading The Tree Of Life


Where I Watched It: Hulu English Audio Description Provided By Point 360 Narrated By: Roy Samuelson I laughed basically all the way through my YouTube review version of this. Not because the film is funny, but because it is totally and completely bonkers. Yesterday, in the real world, I was mentioning some of the more recent titles I had seen that felt wholly original as horror titles, and not just retreads, and that’s half the reason I gave Matriarch decent marks. I’m still, a week later, not sure what I watched. I don’t know that I will ever fully understand … Continue reading Matriarch


Where I Watched It: hulu Audio Description Provided By: Point 360 Narrated By: Roy Samuelson Hulu continues its barrage of horror titles this October with a horror title about a meme gone wild that stars Shannon Sossamon. Really, that’s all you need to know. Right? Grimcuddy is a meme, a rather well described creepy as hell meme that comes to life and haunts kids that participate supposedly in its challenge. Basically, parents think their kids are cutting themselves to serve this meme, but these kids can actually see Grimcuddy. And after the attack, they are left with cuts, and the … Continue reading Grimcuddy

Let Me in

Where I Watched It: Netflix Audio Description Provided By: Zoo Digital Written By: John Gray Narrated By: Roy Samuelson Admittedly, I could have seen this film visually. I remember critics enjoyed it, and Matt Reeves is a very talented director who has given us several amazing films, including The Batman earlier this year. But, I passed on this, not because I passed on gore, but because the original, the foreign language Let The Right One in, is perfect, and actually my favorite foreign language title of all time. I didn’t need a remake. If Martin Scorsese remade The Godfather, I’m … Continue reading Let Me in
