Goodness, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted these, so let’s get to it. As always, I promise you reviews of our latest Netflix rentals in 25 words or less!
Young @ Heart – What do the elderly have to teach us about life, when they are rocking out to the classics? Plenty!
Torchwood, Seasons 1 and 2 – You’ve seen my previous post on this awesome series. Watch it, love it.
I’m Not There – I don’t really like Bob Dylan. I do love Cate Blanchett. Not enough to make me keep watching.
Upstairs, Downstairs, Season 1 – I think I could keep watching and get into this show about British servants and their masters, but it’s not right for me right now.
XXY – Can a transgender girl find love with a clueless boy? Apparently not.
Gone Baby Gone – The ending twist was curiously good, but this Boston cop thriller mostly bored me.
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day – A silly comedy with simple fun. Worth it just to fawn over Lee Pace.
The Italian Job – A cleverly plotted heist thriller. Worth it just to fawn over Jason Statham.
John Adams – The best TV miniseries I think I’ve ever seen. It made me excited about history. How bizarre is that?
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 – It was nice to visit old friends, but this is missing the magic of the original.
Ken Burns’ America: The Shakers – Should have been an interesting documentary, but I left feeling like I hadn’t learned anything new about this colonial religious group.
Ziegfield Follies – A mixed bag of splashy musical numbers and comic bits. Worth it just to marvel at the real Fanny Brice!
Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild! – Hilarious humor for gay men only! Gross-out laughs and hot guys.
All Over the Guy – Why must gay men in gay movies be so full of bitchiness and self-loathing? This movie was lousy.
30 Days, Season 1 – Hit or miss episodes putting people in situations opposite their everyday. Best one was Morgan Spurlock living on minimum wage for a month. Heartbreaking stuff.
Man on Wire – A shockingly engrossing documentary about a Frenchman who did a tightrope walk across the Twin Towers. Part re-enactment, part storytelling. Mesmerizing!
