    The Windsors

    .
    112 days not really going out. Lots of DVD's & Netflix in the evenings when the days work is done.

    I had gone through the entire "The Crown" series. Also "The Royal House of Windsor."

    Quite a crew, so the The Windsors https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5692740/ was quite a lowlife treat.

    a review:
    AS A MONARCHIST, I LOVE IT!!!
    agrippaalexander29 December 2017

    Truly hysterical, well written and beautifully acted. The writers have simply exaggerated what we already suspect: Camilla is a scheming bitch; Charles is a Dumb, Aristocratic Hippy; Pippa is a crazed Social Climber; William is Nice, Well-meaning but ineffectual; Harry is thick as a brick but a lovely person who needs mothering; Beatrice and Eugenie are desperate for cash but bad at EVERYTHING: Sarah Ferguson is desperate to get back in favour; Andrew is after £££ and Totty; Edward is utterly useless and will clean windows for cash! I'm a fervent Monarchist, but we Brits have a sense of humour -- especially about OURSELVES. The programme is great fun and totally harmless. I bet the younger Royals think it's great and the older Royals will never see it. I'm just disappointed there are only 12 episodes!!!

    ruthless & savage at times ... nobody is spared. Great fun.

    The Windsors Royal Wedding Special review – gloriously brazen satire

    They are on a US talkshow. Harry (Richard Goulding) says he has calmed down a lot since meeting Meghan (Kathryn Drysdale). The stag will probably just go nightclub, strip club, casino then brothel. But he may try LSD, too, and he wonders if the zoo would let him fight a leopard. Shame Wills won’t be coming over for it. Nor Rupes, Jono, Grunty, Spunker, Shagmonster, Sir Vomalot or Lord Pissbucket.

    Meghan was thinking more along the lines of a wheatgrass juice at a detox spa followed by The Vagina Monologues (“That sounds fantastic!” gushes Harry, having no clue what The Vagina Monologues is). But guess what – one glass of complimentary fizz at the spa while Meghan is in the toilet is the beginning of a slippery slope. At the other end of that slope is Harry in his old SS uniform, locked in a cell with a woman called Amber he ennobled after a few Jägerbombs at Hooters, arrested for urinating off the roof of a police station. Yes, Meghan, with your lovely, shiny hair and American teeth and modern ways: you may get to win the prince, but you don’t get to tame him.

    This is one of the brilliant things about Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie’s comedy: it is relentlessly ruthless, but also a teeny bit affectionate; it actually makes you rather proud of them. They may be ghastly monsters, but they are our ghastly monsters.

    well, not a movie,,,, but

    .
    now at 122 days at home. A friend turned me on to "Longmire" .... kind of put it in the back of my mind , but recently discovered it.

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1836037/

    Besides fine acting ( American Western modern day Sheriff is actually an Aussie) , writing (yeah, it's a western soap) ... it has really nice original music ... the themes are
    guitar featured and nearly a character by themselves.

    easy 9.5/10

    Storyline
    Walt Longmire is the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County. Widowed only a year, Longmire is a man in psychic repair that buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Struggling since his wife's death and at the urging of his daughter, Cady, Longmire knows that the time has come to turn his life around. With the help of Vic, a female deputy new to the department, he becomes reinvigorated about his job and committed to running for re-election. When Branch, an ambitious, young deputy decides to run against him for sheriff, Longmire feels betrayed but remains steadfast in his dedication to the community. Longmire often turns to close friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear for support as he sets out to rebuild both his personal and professional life, one step at a time. Written by A&E TV

    Longmire became the "highest-rated original drama series" on A&E;[3] however, the network announced in August 2014 that it would not renew the series after the third season.[4] Warner Horizon Television offered it to other networks[5] and Netflix picked it up, starting with season four.[6] Netflix released the sixth and final season

    Was it supposed to be a comedy ???

    .
    IF you are on Netflix , they are pushing "Da 5 Bloods" as #1 in the country. Reviews everywhere.

    It had an OK premise and was a product of the renowned Spike Lee.

    https://www.netflix.com/title/81045635 . Even the trailer wasn't too bad.

    Four African American vets battle the forces of man and nature when they return to Vietnam seeking the remains of their fallen squad leader and the gold fortune he helped them hide.

    So I gave it a try. The opening was merely well worn stock video clips . Marvin Gay
    music is everywhere (not a bad thing) ... but then bad CGI Huey landing that turns into a plastic model when it crashes. A firefight where these 70 y.o. former soldiers get at least 100 shots out of a 20 shot magazine ... no brass is ever extracted. Even the lefty is never pummeled with casings. Every shot makes a big flash, despite having flash suppressors.

    I could only handle 20 minutes.

    Got some more time on it the next day. One of these 70 y.o's meets his old , fab wealthy GF from the war who is 40ish. Her surprise daughter from him is 30ish.

    I could only handle 30 minutes this time.

    Searching for gold bars (were to pay off Montengards ) in gold .... that they buried 50+ years ago .... they stop to take a break, one guys has to take a crap, he walks down the side of a hill and randomly stops to dig a hole for his waste and strikes a bar.

    After 5 days, I finally got thru it.

    The online reviews mention that it is made at a 1st year film school level.
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9777644...s?ref_=tt_ql_3

    If this is representative of the great Spike, think I'll pass on anything he does.

    wish I could rate it lower than 1 out of 10 stars.
