The Carter Effect is a documentary on Vince Carter but more specifically Vince Carter's influence. It's interesting because if you aren't of a certain age you might not know the crazy popularity of Vince Carter back in the late 90's and early 2000's. I grew up seeing what Vince Carter has done for Toronto, the Toronto Raptors and Canadians in general.
The title of Unbroken: Path to Redemption is kind of confusing to me. The reason why it's confusing is because I already reviewed a movie called Unbroken (https://vocal.media/serve/my-review-of-unbroken). That movie was directed by Angelina Jolie and it was actually a pretty good one. It talked about the extraordinary things that Louis Zamperini had to deal with during the war.
When I saw the Kominsky Method last year I didn't know what to think. A dramedy (comedy and drama) based on two senior citizens? I sat and binged watched the first season because it was so good. I could believe that this odd couple would riff off each other so well and have such realistic situations happen to them. Well realistic is kind of stretching it since one of old guys is super rich.
The Irishman is the latest Martin Scorsese film and it so happens to be exclusive to Netflix. This really shows that Netflix is willing to pay top talent to get exclusive rights to high caliber content on their streaming service. It makes sense too because there is a lot of competition coming their way in terms of competing streaming services.
I wasn't sure what to make of Iron Fists and Kung Fu Kicks when it became available on Netflix. I thought it was an actual movie but it was actually a documentary. Why not? I like Kung Fu movies as much as the next person, let's see how it goes.
I recently rewatched Katt Williams' 2006 HBO comedy special, The Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1. I remember laughing my butt off when I first saw this back in the day. It would be interesting to see how it fared today. I didn't think that the material back then would translate well to today's climate but I was wrong.
