Cruella

Fantastic. Totally reinvented the franchise with an amazing origin story. Dark and deep and super entertaining. Great performances.

Terrific reboot of the long running sci fi serial. I grew up on Tom Baker’s Doctor from the 70s, with the low production value, cardboard looking sets, the space monsters that looked like bad Halloween costumes. Something about it was just so compelling. This modern day reboot has big budgets and much better acting but is still true to the Doctor Who tradition (and still has the cheesy space monsters). It’s deep and yet unapologetically cheesy. (I mean, there’s an episode titled “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship!”) I especially enjoyed the early seasons (series 1-7) and admittedly lost interest in the more recent seasons.

2021 . Action & Adventure, Drama

A decent show from Marvel. Not amazing (Wandavision was more compelling), but had enough to me engaged. Good tie-ins to the MCU so if you’re a fan of the movies you’ll find plenty here to enjoy.

Invincible
2021 . Animation, Action & Adventure

What a pleasant surprise! Not what I was expecting but really enjoyed the first season. Compelling characters and story, and just enough quirkiness (produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg) to be very entertaining. Beware: a bit of gratuitous gore!

The Umbrella Academy
2019 . Action & Adventure, Comedy

Enjoyed the first season but gave up in season 2. A lot to like but it’s not drawing me in. Maybe I’ll get back to it.

Loki
2021 . Action & Adventure, Sci-Fi & Fantasy

image8

Solid show from Marvel but not my favorite. Loki is a great character, and Tom Hiddleston is brilliant. Owen Wilson is a nice addition. The storyline dragged a bit and I found myself drifting at times. Love the clan of misfit Lokis (gotta watch it to find out what that means).

Interesting premise but the writing is awful and the acting is worse.

The Year Earth Changed
2021 . Documentary

image8

Stunned by how the “great pause” of the pandemic impacted our natural world— for the better. Gives hope that our environmental degradation can be reversed. Great footage. Of course the film was limited by what footage they could capture and I was left wanting of the many more stories of nature’s comeback that went untold.

Long Way Up
2020 . Documentary, Action & Adventure, Reality

Loved this because I watched during the pandemic shut in and it gave me such a wonderful sense of the freedom of being on the road and exploring the world. Ewan and Charlie are a hoot and their enthusiasm is contagious. Also I’m fascinated with electric vehicles and the future they hold, so that provided an extra layer of intrigue.

Key & Peele
2012 . Action & Adventure, Comedy

From the archives. Watched this years ago and keep coming back to it. One of the most hilarious and socially poignant sketch comedy shows of all time. The characters are brilliant. Not surprising that these guys have gone on to stardom as actors and directors. I’ve probably sent friends more links to this show than any other. All time quotable classics include Substitute Teacher and East West Bowl.

Earth at Night in Color
2020 . Documentary

Very compelling. A great instance of where technology (ultra low light cameras) can give us a never before seen view of nature, and new knowledge to go with it.

Judas and the Black Messiah
2021 . Drama, History

image9

A must see historical biopic, especially if you’re interested in civil rights in the USA, the 60s, and Chicago. Very timely given the recent state of the social justice movement.

My Octopus Teacher
2020 . Documentary

Loved this documentary! Gave me new insights into these mysterious creatures, and the fact that it was interwoven with the story of the narrator made the tale of these encounters that much richer and unique.
img
Lupin
2021 . Action & Adventure, Crime, Drama

image8

Highly enjoyable series of the “protagonist who continually is five steps ahead of everyone else” mold. The clever twists drive the plot. Watched it in French with English subtitles because I dislike over-dubs.

WandaVision
2021 . Action & Adventure, Comedy, Drama

image8

I dug the spot-on re-enactments of each era of TV land sitcoms, which got me through the first few episodes as the real story revealed itself.
