Ozark Season 3 (Netflix)

So Alicia and I finally get around to watching the 3rd season of Ozark on Netflix. What a very creative writing crew to continue to make this show fresh and some what unique to continue to watch. a cross between breaking bad and Justified. Really an entertaining show.

The team talks about the resurgence of racial violence and harassment that we didn’t think would be occurring during a global pandemic. Also is this isolation affecting people mentally to react in violent ways. Domestic violence, divorce, etc.

The Decline (Netflix)

A fatal accident at a remote survivalist training camp sends participants into a panic - and sets the stage for a chilling showdown. Sounds good don’t it. Or does it. Well It starts off like a bunch of regular anarchist learning to survive out in the wilderness until some real f’ed up stuff happens and the main protagonist freakin dies. So how does this end? Its in French so the intensity of watching this closer is recommended. A Canadian movie as well

The Gentleman

So, being Guy Ritchie fans, we were dying to see what he was going to do with this new movie with an all star cast of characters, British and American. We see that he has matured with his technique as well as getting a lot more money for his movies than before.

21 Bridges

 So we get to see another Chadwick Boseman movie hoping we would see his talent or another action movie he can show off his Black panther power lol.  Anyway we goy none of that, just a retool cop drama about crooked cops and drug deals gone wrong and the one good cop in New York to save the day.. Yeah right.  But if you want action, you will get it.  Acting and story?  scroll through Netflix

Since Alicia is a big fan of the fast and Furious series.  I begrudgingly dragged myself to see this smash and race movie.  The best thing about this movie going into it was not having Vin Diesel in the film.  So we prepared ourself for better or for worst.

Really big fans of the John Wick series. We couldn’t wait to go see Part # of the series. Alicia and I always go to the movies to see a John Wick film because its huge, has big excitement with how they are made. We were looking for a continued exciting movie experience and boy did it not disappoint.

Close (Netflix)

Being a long time fan of Noomi Rapace from the “Girl with the dragon Tattoo” series (Millennial series) This movie about her being a female body guard was pretty interesting to me. How this bodyguard had to take care of an heiress that has just inherited control over her fathers million dollar business. British movie but something on my list

Blindspotting

 This movie wasn't actually on my list to see, to talk about or to even mention.  But when we were hit with all of the critically acclaimed reviews as well as an Oakland story written and directed by African Americans and Hispanics.  I had to give it a go.  A very humorous, heartfelt drama that will hopefully make you think about the day to day struggles of anyone trying to remove stigmas from their identity.  ANd struggle to try to do the right thing in a very hard environment.

The Equalizer II

So you know - we did go see the first equalizer when it came out in the movies and i watched the TV series growing up.  I barely recalled anything about it but remember this series and the night stalker series.  We review the first movie by Denzel Washington then go into the newly released one.  Full transparency,  I didn't really like the first one.
