Amazing short Netflix series about a woman for some reason keeps dying on the day of her birthday. The humorous ways she dies and the way she tries not to die takes you on a crazy trip into this Russian Jewish woman in New York. Very diverse with the characters as well as clever clever dialogue. Absolutely worth seeing. Here's my Review.
This emotional drama about an ex stockbroker who is diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder gets released from a mental institution and has to adjust to a society that sees him as a threat while he deals with his own disorder and a father that he has never had a relationship with. A very sad and interesting take on how we treat people with mental disorders.
Alicia and I are big fans of Melissa McCarthy so when she does something that catches our eye or something outrageous. We make an effort to see her. This being her first staring dramatic role, We had to see what she would do. Based on a book written by Lee Isreal a well known writer who falls down on her luck and starts to make money off of deception
Now this fast pace action super drama is somethingI didn’t expect even though the reviews said to be prepared. A triad soldier decides to go against the wishes of the clan based on the killing of a little girl. Then he becomes the target. But he is not so easily to kill. Over the top some times and very gory. But Very entertaining.
Ito, a gangland enforcer, is caught amidst a treacherous and violent insurrection within his Triad crime family.
This Movie was not on my list of must see even though it was an African American movie until I realized it was directed by Barry Jenkins. The brilliant writer directer of Moonlight (Oscar winning). Jenkins took the book written by James Baldwin and wrote the screenplay for this amazing romantic dramatic movie about two young lovers. Sadly it goes from Romance and love to drama and tragedy that you see intimately through out the movie. Should have been on the list for best movie of the year.
My next asian film comes from Hong Kong which centers on a hit man with some unique abilities, This assassin has a crew that creates accidents for their victims so that people would not be able to track any particular person. The catch to this story is what happens when the creator becomes the victim? This is where this story goes. We watch and see if he is right or is this another creation that backfires in his own mind.
If you followed my reviews, you know I love the work of Alfonso Cuaron. So this B&W period piece made in Mexico was released with critical acclaim. I wanted to take my time and watch it when I really had the mental time. What a very emotional and moving piece he has created for this Oscar nominated film about a domestic worker going through life in the 70's surrounded by class divisions as well as political uprising in Mexico.
Today I sit down and watch this extraordinary horror / drama TV series made for Netflix about waring Kingdoms as well as treachery within the kingdom to obtain power. This six episode series is intense and well worth seeing. By the way did I say this had a bunch of zombies it as well?
The deceased king rises and a mysterious plague begins to spread; the prince must face a new breed of enemies to unveil the evil scheme and save his people.
This very interesting movie made by the Director: Yorgos Lanthimos with his two odd movies The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer Has created this piece period about a frail Queen who needs assistance from her close friend to help her govern the nation but gets interrupted with a new addition to their relationship. A former aristocrat who is the cousin of the Queens friend, who moves in to become the favorite to the Queen. Then all hell breaks out
In the early 18th century, England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving.

We get to see the final part of the trilogy superhero series from M. Night Shyamalan. Not hailed very highly by the critics, but if you saw the previous “Split” and “Unbreakable”. You Know where this was headed. We give our opinions about this new release by M. Night.
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass. From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
