What's in Your Queue?

 Television. Netflix. HBO Max, Amazon. Hulu. Disney. 


I still read quite a bit as you can tell from my reviews.  But the old boob tube draws me in. So many choices. So many binges. So many golden oldies too. 

Here are a few things I've been watching. 

Disney - Loki  from the Marvel Universe. I love Tom Hiddleston. I have no freakin' clue what's going on in this series. There's time variance.  Time keepers. Variants. And life can be in disarray.  Okay....

Whatever, I'm amused.  If anyone can explain it - feel free...... Alex??

Netflix -   This is POP.   I enjoy music documentaries and this series zeroes in on some themes. It's been very entertaining as they explore the 60s, black music, and what came out of the Brill Building in NYC. Very cool

HBO Max Let Him Go with Kevin Costner and Diane Lane. Takes place late 50s in Montana. Lots of quiet moments and then some violent moments. Great acting.  Kevin and Diane want to save their three year old grandson from the clutches of in-laws. Let's just say that doesn't go smoothly. 

HBO Max - Judas and the Black Messiah.  A wow of a serious movie.  Fred Hampton and the Black Panther movement - watching the growth of the movement, the electricity of Fred, and the quiet FBI tracking of this group.  Daniel K. won an Oscar for his portrayal of Fred, and Lakieth Stanfield gives an amazing performance too. This was thinking material. 

Hulu - Summer of Soul   Another music documentary - this one produced by Questlove.  Really good - around the time of Woodstock, there was a huge music festival featuring black musicians at a park in Harlem. Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, the 5th Dimension and more. It was crazy good, but never had the oomph like Woodstock did. Now rare footage has been compiled and it's worth watching. Very cool

So, what's in your Queue?


  1. I haven't seen any of these.
    Trying to catch a bit with cinema and theater with JT, but I'm decades behind.

    Hugs, Joanne.

    1. Go see Roadrunner in theater - documentary on Anthony Bourdain. Quite a complex man. Very interesting flick

  2. I'm going to try some of your choices. I continue to watch TV less and less because I can't find much of interest!

    1. I think there's some well done shows/series. Enjoy!

  3. Hi Joanne - I thought I recognised Judas and the Black Messiah - our art-gallery-cinema is showing it in two weeks and I've booked ... so I'll enjoy - thank you!! Cheers Hilary

    1. It is intense but very well done. A lot of that time period is unknown to me.
