Roku, to its credit, to help with those subject to the ‘stay-at-home‘, is offering 30-days of SHOWTIME for Free. So, I signed up — now I have no new cricket to watch. [Notice I have NOT (really) complained.]
Saw this. Yes, it looked predictable and yes, it is. But, it is fun. Funny in parts. Definitely uplifting.
I go through phases when I nearly convince myself that I am an opera buff. The opera in the soundtrack — obviously meticulously handpicked — is brilliant. I want to listen to opera again!
It is definitely watchable. It is NOT bad. Actually it is, really, pretty good.
Will make you SMILE. SMILE.
We just finished watching all three episodes of this show. Never heard of it until we saw the ‘promotions’ on Britbox.
Glad we did.
Quite the show. Very dramatic. I guess it could even be classed as a psychological thriller. Very clever. Lots of twists. Very good.
Recommend it highly. Hope there are other episodes. Would definitely watch.
‘Blow The Man Down’ (2019) Amazon Movie — Decent Story, ‘Poorly’ Produced, ‘David Coffin’ Was A Waste.
It is set in Maine and the description was fairly enticing. It was an ‘OK’ movie. It could have been better.
Having ‘David Coffin‘, THE MAN from Revels (Cambridge) was a treat & a kick. I did NOT know he was going to be in it, but I recognized him as soon as he appeared. Ironically, I am not sure why they had him in the movie! I could be very wrong BUT I am not sure he added anything. His sea shanties, all of which I was familiar with, were incongruous in this movie — in my opinion. They were loud and made the movie seem unnecessarily heavy-handed and dark.
That it was in Maine and that it revolved around lobstering was cute. Liked that.
Story was OK. Not great. Production was BAD. It could have been muck slicker and having David Coffin was a waste! Sorry.
Watch the trailer on YouTube.
I can’t tell you how well this has been put together. Bloody brilliant. I am in awe.
Brand new. This has to set the bar for future documentaries of this genre. Not sure how they got all these people to talk.
Did NOT know this ‘story’. Quite the story.
Very watchable. I have really enjoyed it. They had me hooked 5-minutes into it.
Yes, I recommend it — highly.

Yes, it is old, but it does not come across as such. Right at the start I detected that the picture ‘quality’ was not 21st century, but it is very, very well shot and produced. Once you are in it you get caught up in how luxuriant the cinematography is.
I am GLAD I watched this. I really enjoyed it and I learnt a LOT. And to I that is always a bonus and pleasure.
I am invariably shamed and embarrassed that my grasp of British history is rather tenuous. I know a million times more about papal history than I know of British. I would like to rectify it, but, alas, I think it is too late. So, movies like this, which are educational — in addition to being entertaining — are much appreciated and valued.
They do a good job trying to explain the historic context and what the issues are — i.e., trying to keep England from going under a Catholic monarch.
Though it is an historical story, onc can really watch it and enjoy it as a well-produced, lavish, period romance.

Don’t think it is a date movie, unless both of you like slow-burn, murder-crime dramas. Kind of has the feel of ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri‘ but at a much slower pace, darker and with no humor, whatsoever.
It is well done. The whole movie has an intentional creepy feel. That kind of keeps you engrossed. Fairly simple, but non-obvious storyline. I wasn’t sure what to expect. But, I am glad I watched and it kept me engaged. A great study of an autistic personality.
