JUNE Viewing Recap: INDIAN SUMMERS, Netflix’s Murder Mystery, Unlocked, etc.

I can't believe it's July already... I feel like once July 4th is behind us, we're already more than halfway done with Summer 😦 Well, I actually didn't really do much movie/tv watching around the Fourth weekend as I prefer to make the most of Minnesota Summer outside. I did watch quite a few things …

FlixChatter Review: Netflix’s VELVET BUZZSAW (2019)

Netflix has truly become a force to be reckoned with in terms of original content, the fact that they apparently planned on making 90 original movies this year alone… with budgets up to $200mil!

Musings on TV Series Recently Watched: Howards End + Call My Agent! (Dix Pour Cent)

Ok so before we close out the month, I thought I do another quick review/commentary of some shows I've been enjoying. As most of us in the Upper Midwest are forced to hibernate thanks to the darn Polar Vortex, well, here are shows well worth binging on. Yes I'm well aware most of the shows …

Musings on TV Series Recently Watched: Bodyguard & SS-GB

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (I think you can still say that until at least mid January, right?) It's a relatively mellow weekend for me and I realize I haven't actually written a review in 2019 yet but I've been bingeing a ton of shows in the past month or so. I've blogged about Daredevil Season 3 …

Top 10 reasons I LOVE Netflix’s Daredevil Season 3

The last time I wrote a lengthy post about a TV show was this past Summer when I wrote about Altered Carbon, which happens to be a Netflix Original Series. Well, this time it's another series on Netflix which I've been a huge fan of since season 1. I'm still reeling from the announcement on Nov. …

FlixChatter Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

When this movie came across my screen as I fired up Netflix, I knew this is the kind of movie I'd enjoy. Billed as a 'celebration of literature, love, and the power of the human spirit,' it's a charming film set in an English island during WWII. It certainly helps that I'm an Anglophile and British …

Spotlight on BBC One’s miniseries SS-GB + Interview with actor Maximilian Dirr

This past Sunday, BBC One finally aired one of my most anticipated series (well it's a 5-part miniseries) starring my fave Yorkshireman Sam Riley. I've mentioned the project several times, including here and here. Naturally it'll make you think of Amazon’s Man in the High Castle but set in London. Based on the 1978 novel by Len …

Happy last Tuesday of the year folks! Hope you had a lovely Christmas break. Mine is relatively mellow on Christmas day, though we did go up North to Duluth Friday and spent the night there to see the Bentleyville Tour of Lights (I've shared the pics here). We came back in time for Christmas Eve …
