Sunset Limousine (take 3)

August 13, 2017

Tried giving Sunset Limousine another try – 1983 made-for-TV movie starring Susan Dey and John Ritter. Susan did two films with Ritter. Never been a big fan of his. Sunset Limousine is certainly not one of Susan’s finest moments. It’s an average tv movie from the era. Not great but not offensive. Click on the image below to read my original review.

‘Sense8’ is back in production, and the finale is going to be totally ‘epic’ (Queerty)

August 12, 2017

Has your cluster been informed yet? Sense8 is coming back for one final epic wrap-up movie. The Netflix series that was too big for just two seasons is back in production and due to release their final film in 2018. Watch an extended “thank you” video from creator Lana Wachowski, her cast and crew. Adorable clips abound. I still get chills when I think of this series. For all its imperfection and limitation it certainly did propel storytelling forward. It created a world where everyone is equal, where everyone’s voice and love are honored. Sense8 wrote the manual for the future of humanity.

Read the full article on Queerty and check out Lana’s fifteen minute video.
Check out Reel Charlie’s reviews of Sense8: Season 1, the Sense8 Christmas Special, and Sense8: Season 2.

Instead of sharing a pic of the cast or creators or a poster, I want to share two pics of my favorite supporting actors – Max Mauff who plays Felix and Michael X. Sommers who plays Bug.

Rhoda

August 4, 2017

“New York: this is your last chance!” Ba ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba…

And so goes the intro to Rhoda, the Mary Tyler Moore Show spin-off starring Valerie Harper as Rhoda Morgenstern, a 30-something, single, Jewish, New York woman who moves back to her hometown after living in Minneapolis. I loved this show as a kid. I had a mad crush on David Groh who played Rhoda’s love interest Joe and spoiler alert – husband. This is another show better left in my memory. It’s not bad, but it’s a bit flat all these years later. I watched two episodes of Rhoda and had enough. Oh well, I’ll hold on to the memories. Giving Rhoda a 3 out of 5 for old-time sake.

In a Heartbeat (short)

Closing out the month of July 2017 with a beautiful animated short film, In a Heartbeat from filmmakers Beth David and Esteban Bravo. From YouTube,

A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams.

“It’s like an Orthodox, Jewish, Disneyland” – Sarah Pfefferman.

The song playing in the background is “Everything’s Alright” from the hit musical Jesus Christ Superstar. Love how they fuck with everything and everyone.
