September 2020 Movies

Love Guaranteed ☆☆☆

Completely predictable, innocuous romantic comedy. Pleasant but not deep. Just what we needed on the Saturday evening when we were watching it.

On Netflix with Ann, Pat, and Al

Good Kisser ☆

Why are so many lesbian movies so bad? The behavior of the characters is often bizarre and not well-motivated by whatever is going on in the narrative or by what we know up to that point about the character. Disappointing.

The Tiger Hunter ☆☆☆

Set in the 1970s, a story about an Indian immigrant in the US trying to get a job as an engineer by inventing the first microwave oven that doesn’t catch on fire.

On Netflix with Pat and Al

Pen15 ☆☆☆☆

If I had reviewed this show after watching the first season only, it would easily have been 5 stars. I loved the first season, especially two episodes–Solo and POSH. I watched that season on Netflix. I loved it so much I started a free trial on Hulu so that I could watch the second season. Only half the season has been released on Hulu so far and I really hated it. The only reason I kept watching is because I loved the first season so much. In fact, I would give the first half of the second season only 1 star. My love for the first season was stronger than my dislike of the second so that’s how I got to 4 stars.

Criminal ☆☆☆☆☆

Only 7 episodes over 2 seasons leaves me wanting so much more of this outstanding show. Each episode focuses on the interrogation of a suspect in a different crime. This means that it is completely dialog focused. An actor’s dream. I especially liked the second episode of the first season.

On Netflix by myself.
