Watched “The Irishman”on Netflix last night and I’m like, “Wow, this is the best film of the year!”

Yesterday evening on Thanksgiving, I watched the Netflix movie “The Irishman” that was directed by Martin Scorsese. I’ll have to say like the title of this topic says that this is the best movie of 2019… well so far anyway and I really mean that too. It’s definitely another winner for Scorsese. Marty Scorsese is a genius film maker, no doubt. He has made a lot of great films over the years like “Goodfellas”, “Cape Fear” and “The Departed” being a few of my favorites that he did. Well Marty’s new film, “The Irishman” I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and it’s finally here.

I was totally impressed with it and blown away. The movie grabs you right from the start as the movie begins. As soon as the movie starts, I watch it from start to finish without any interruptions and yes, it’s a 3 and half hour movie. The movie has an all star cast too… it has everyone from: Robert Deniro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Anna Paquin, Jesse Plemons, Steven Van Zandt, etc.

This wasn’t the first film Deniro and Pacino teamed up together in. They did a few other movies together like “The Godfather Part II’, “Righteous Kill” and “Heat”. So I think “The Irishman” would be their 4th film together… correct me if I’m wrong? Even though I think Deniro is a shitty person in real life and absolutely hate his left-wing politics, he’s still a great actor and I’m not afraid to admit that. I thought he did a great job in this film, though and this is definitely one of his best roles.

Yes, there was another movie based upon the “Hoffa” disappearance & murder which was a film directed by Danny Devito and starring Jack Nicholson as Hoffa released in the year 1992. You probably remember that film and I remember re-watching that one on Netflix not too long ago. This film and Marty’s “The Irishman” are two different films, though even though they’re similar stories.

“The Irishman” was based upon the book titled, “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt.

“The Irishman” just simply tells the story of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran who is telling the story of his criminal past being a part of the Buffalo crime family and former union labor high official. The film also tells its own story of the mysterious Jimmy Hoffa disappearance and murder in which Sheeran confessed to. Jimmy Hoffa who was once a labor union leader himself.

I thought “The Irishman” was a brilliant movie and it’s not only the best film of the year, it’s also the best original movie on Netflix. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Netflix has too many original films. Most of them bad and a few of them actually pretty good but finally Netflix released a really good one. “The Irishman” was mind-blowing and I love how Marty is trying to keep mobster movies alive ’cause those type of movies are fading. Marty is the best at making mob movies, though.

Not only that Robert Deniro kills it with his acting… can’t ignore the talent of Pacino, Pesci and Keitel. Those guys killed it too like they always do. We haven’t seen Joe Pesci in a movie in a long time and obviously that man still got it even though he’s 76 now. I just love Pesci’s fast talking voice and that’s probably why he is so popular, really… people just like the way he talks.

The movie was also well filmed, well written and well directed. No complaints at all. Just a perfect all around movie all the way through. I’m definitely gonna give it another viewing, probably next weekend.

Check out “The Irishman”. The movie was amazing and I hope it gets a nomination for Best Picture at the next Oscars.

“Stranger Things” is the best original show on Netflix… I’ll be watching it until it ends for good…

So last night I finished “Stranger Things 3”. Even though it was kind of a short season this year, I was still blown away and impressed by it. This show is a well-written show and very well-acted by the entire cast too. Oh my god, the show is so fucking good. It’s also directed and filmed pretty well too.

Part of the reason I love this show so much is that I love how this show blends science fiction and horror together. The stories of those creatures and those kids is way cool. Some of you may ask me, who are my favorite characters of the show? Well Eleven, of course, who is played by the great young actress Millie Bobby Brown. That character is so badass and so entertaining as hell. I also like Winona Ryder’s character who plays Joyce and she is the mother of characters Will and Jonathan. I also like Dustin and Billy Hargrove.

Another reason I like this show so much is like everyone else, it reminds me of so much like the late 80’s and early 90’s which the show is taken place at during those years. That was back in the days when there was no internet, no cell phones, back when shopping malls were a thing, we had to use pay phones, no such thing as flat screen TVs back then and those were the days when kids actually had to go outside and do things. I know this ’cause I lived my childhood through those years too.

Anyhow, “Stranger Things 3” was a really mind blowing season. It was great all the way through. Excellent storytelling, I can see why it’s the most popular show on Netflix and I’m finally getting into the show so now I’m all caught up.

Now I’m all caught up with “Stranger Things”, I’m going to have to pick a different show to watch on there. I’m thinking of starting “Designated Survivor” with Kiefer Sutherland ’cause I’m hearing great things about that show and I’m probably gonna start it next week.

I’m back on Netflix ’cause I wanted to be back in time before “The Dark Crystal” show gets on there ’cause I love the Dark Crystal and can’t wait for that show too. I also went back on Netflix for other shows that I wanted to watch on there too.

Finished watching “Black Mirror” on Netflix over the weekend… most of it was real good but I didn’t love every episode, though…

I know I’m late getting into the show but I finally watched “Black Mirror” on Netflix. Finished watching it over the weekend. Since everybody’s been talking about the show, I thought I would finally get into it to see what the fuss is all about. “Black Mirror” is a UK science fiction TV show exclusively for Netflix. You don’t have to watch every episode in order ’cause each episode has its own story kind of like “The Twilight Zone” or “Amazing Stories” a little bit.

From what I saw, this show isn’t just a science fiction show. This show included every genre out there: drama, mystery, suspense, horror, thriller, romance, etc. Every genre is pretty much in there.

Throughout the show while there are no big name stars in the cast there were a few big names that made special guest appearances. The biggest names I’ve seen who appeared in the show were: Jesse Plemons, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jon Hamm and Daniel Kaluuya (the star of the “Get Out” movie).

Even though the show is very popular and a lot of people loved it; however, I didn’t love every episode. There were some I thought were pretty good and okay but there were also some that were my absolute favorite. Here’s a list of bad and good episodes of the show:

Episodes that I hated: “Nosedive”, “San Junipero” and “The National Anthem”

Episodes that were my absolute favorite: “Metaldhead”, “Arkangel, “Crocodile”, “Black Museum”, “Playtest”, “White Christmas” (the one that Jon Hamm appeared in) and “Men Against Fire”.

Even though I didn’t like three episodes, I thought it was a great show for the most part. I’m gonna check out the “Bandersnatch” movie later this week.

I’m glad to finally get around to watching “Black Mirror”. I think next I’m gonna start watching “Stranger Things” ’cause I’ve never seen that show before either.

Thoughts on the Motley Crue movie, “The Dirt” on Netflix, I thought it was surprisingly great! Very realistic too!!!

I’ve watched the Motley Crue biopic film on Netflix called “The Dirt” last Sunday night and I thought it was surprisingly good! I wasn’t much of a Motley Crue fan much over the years but after seeing this movie, makes me want to get into their music more. I’ve heard all of their hit songs on MTV, of course so I’m definitely familiar with their music. I only own one Motley Crue album which is “The Saints of Los Angeles” their latest album but I’m planning on getting their older albums soon.

As far the Dirt goes, I was surprised of how realistic and accurate the film was. Metal bands like that can be really crazy in real life with the all the sex, drugs and alcohol and all that stuff. Some of you may ask, is everything seen in the movie accurate? According to the band, Motley Crue themselves, they said yes everything in the movie is pretty much true. I’m gonna have to read the book now which was written by Tommy Lee.

The movie had some pretty mixed emotions, though. A lot of times the movie can be funny and entertaining as hell but at the same time it can also be scary and sad. Why is the film a bit scary? Probably ’cause of all the drug use in the movie and what drugs can really do to you, that’s one thing that film showed you. The film wanted to educate you about the dangers of drugs which they did a good job of, I think. The film also can be pretty sad and gotten serious like with the death of Vince’s daughter, Skylar which was the most serious part of the whole film.

I thought it was a great movie. It’s a great movie for die hard fans of Motley Crue and a good film for new fans too. I don’t know much about Motley Crue but I’m gonna have to learn more about them after seeing this movie. I definitely plan on watching this movie again on Netflix this week. Probably this weekend actually. The film was well-written and well-acted by the cast too. It’s recommended seeing for any music fan. You don’t even need to be a Motley Crue fan at all to watch this film. You can watch it to educate yourself on what the rock n’ roll lifestyle is really like. The rock n’ roll lifestyle may seem like a lot of fun but this film wants to show you that it isn’t always enjoyable.

Definitely check it out if you’re a Netflix subscriber.

I’m now officially back in Netflix but I am back permanently…

So last night I officially signed back up to Netflix. Back in the early Spring of 2018, I cancelled my account ’cause Netflix has decided to go political by making a deal to do projects with Michelle and Barack Obama and then hiring Susan Rice as Board of Directors. Yeah, I took a pretty long hiatus from Netflix which was pretty nice. I don’t regret it at all ’cause Netflix was getting a bit addicting to me anyways. I’ve been away from Netflix for like 10 or 11 months so I’m back for good.

Yeah, Barack Obama has got some projects coming on Netflix but I don’t have to watch ’em and I won’t.

The reason I went back to Netflix is that like my Instagram post says, it’s ’cause of “Punisher – Season 2”. I won’t be able to watch it anywhere else. I also went back in to start watching “Black Mirror” and watch the rest of “Gotham”. I’m also planning to watch the “Bird Box” movie on there this weekend ’cause it looks good. I’m also thinking about watching the rest of “The Walking Dead” and catch up with that. I stopped watching “The Walking Dead” after Season 3 but I’m thinking of getting back into that show too.

Yeah, Netflix leans toward the left when it comes to politics but I’ll use Netflix to watch stuff that I like and watch stuff that I’m interested in. I don’t have to watch stuff by the Obamas and I won’t.

There are plenty of stuff I want to watch on Netflix and I’m already finding plenty of good stuff. Yeah Netflix has gone political but you can ignore their politics and just enjoy the entertainment that is on there. Try it sometime.

Netflix officially signs Barack and Michelle to multiyear deal… I don’t regret ditching Netflix at all then!

Well this is disappointing but not a surprise, though. After Netflix hiring Susan Rice as Board of Directors, you should have seen this one coming. Barack and Michelle have officially signed a multiyear deal with Netflix to work on all kinds of projects for TV shows and films… both scripted and unscripted. They can do whatever they want with Netflix.

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2018/05/21/obamas-sign-multi-year-netflix-deal-to-produce-shows-and-films.html

Well, like the title says I don’t regret ditching Netflix at all and I don’t miss it. Will I ever return to Netflix sometime in the future? After the signing of Barack and Michelle, I don’t think I ever will now.

You should have seen all this coming ’cause like I said Netflix has always been a liberal biased streaming service. I haven’t seen much conservative content on there. Well, now that Netflix has got Susan Rice and the Obamas working for them, be ready for even more liberal content. I can see the Obamas making documentaries about gay rights, gun control, Climate Change and the usual stuff they politicize about. No doubt that stuff will be coming. Plus the Obamas will probably make autobiographical documentaries about themselves too.

Well today, I’m sure Netflix will be witnessing even more people cancelling. It’s a shame ’cause I used to like Netflix too but not anymore! I don’t want to spend money a month for people who worships criminals and corrupt people!

Susan Rice and Barack Obama are two people that belong in a federal prison and hopefully Pres. Trump will soon send them there. They may not even get to work for Netflix anyways.

Yesterday I cancelled my Netflix membership and felt really good doing that. Do not feel ashamed at all!

29595114_10155498204743131_115840643675441283_n

Yesterday morning, I actually did it. Cancelled my Netflix membership. Yeah, I know it’s gonna piss off some liberal snowflakes, but I don’t give a flying two fucks. My life, my decisions and my opinions. They don’t like it? I don’t give a shit!

Like most conservatives I cancelled Netflix due to them hiring the corrupted Susan Rice as Board of Directors and agreeing to work on projects with the ultra-corrupt Barack Obama. I can’t put my money toward criminals and can’t put my money toward a company supporting criminals. Can’t do it.

I know my decision of quitting Netflix is gonna question some but that’s their problem. Some are gonna be like, “Oh Kev, you shouldn’t leave Netflix over politics”. Keep in mind, these are the same people who calls for boycotts on Chick-Fil-A and the NRA. These are also the same people who refuses to support Trump supporting celebrities like Ted Nugent, Scott Baio and others. These are also the same people who refuses to watch FOX News, reading the Breitbart News site and anything that has to do with right-wing. They accuse the “right-wing” community of boycotting things over politics when the left does the same thing. Liberal hypocrisy like usual. Nothing to see here.

Ah well, who needs Netflix right? It was getting pricey anyways ’cause they keep raising the price and I can’t find much good stuff to watch on there anyways so fuck Netflix.

The question you have ask now is, would I sign up for a replacement of a streaming service for Movies and TV shows? No. Probably not. I did briefly look at Amazon Prime and I wasn’t so impressed with Prime so I opted out of that as well. I won’t sign up for another streaming service for movies and TV shows ’cause they’re all pretty pricey really. Netflix is the most expensive.

The only streaming service I’m gonna keep is WWE Network ’cause I love my wrestling and I’m probably gonna watch that a lot more often.

Instead of streaming services for movies and TV shows, I am going to sign up for the full version of Spotify. Spotify is pretty cheap too, it’s like 9.99 a month for an individual member. I’ve always wanted Spotify so I’m going to go for that. That way I can listen to any albums I want without ads and I can play Spotify on any device. I’ll be able to listen to Spotify on my Ipad and play it through my stereo system.

As far as streaming services for movies and TV shows go, you don’t really need ’em anyways ’cause they can be too addicting. If I wanted to watch a movie or a TV show, I’ll probably buy them on DVD and BluRay. I think that’s a lot better. Binge watching isn’t really good for ya anyways. There’s better things to do in life.
