The many faces of Dave Foley
August 26th, 2021 under Amazon Prime, Kids in the Hall, The Many Faces of. [ Comments: none ]

The sketch show Kids in the Hall is getting another season on Amazon Prime Video. They already started filming, and Dave Foley is giving us a sneak peek of what some of his characters will be.

There will be facial hair. Well, except when he is playing a she.

We don’t know what he will be doing with each look, but I can’t wait to laugh along with him and her.


Amazon Prime Video gets into the award show business
August 19th, 2021 under Amazon Prime, Awards. [ Comments: none ]

There are so many award shows these days, that you can’t watch all of them. Therefore, their ratings are down and too costly for the networks. Therefore, it makes sense that broadcast would want to part ways with them, and streaming would want to pick them up.

Case in point, Amazon Prine Video announced today that they will be airing the Academy of Country Music Awards starting in 2022.

“We’re excited to continue to expand our content offerings for Prime Video customers by being the exclusive home for the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2022 and honoring the best in country music,” said Vernon Sanders, co-head of television, Amazon Studios. “Reaching this milestone with our partners at the Academy of Country Music and MRC as the first major awards show to be livestreamed speaks to our dedication and commitment to continue to both entertain and innovate for our audience.”

I have a feeling we will be getting a lot of concert events leading up to the ACMs. So it is a win/win for everyone but CBS, who used to air the ACMs.

I believe that if this does well, other award shows will do the same. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Golden Globes return that they will go Netflix. And ABC can start moving their shows to Disney+. Well, all of them but the Oscars.


I Know What You Did Last Summer gets a Fall premiere date
August 11th, 2021 under Amazon Prime, Mila Kunis. [ Comments: none ]


I Know What You Did Last Summer went from Lois Duncan’s 1973 book to the big screen in 1997 and now it is going to the small screen starting on October 15th. That is when Amazon Prime Video will release the first 4 episodes of the 8-episode series.

The thriller that stars Madison Iseman, Bill Heck, Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, and Brooke Bloom is described as, One year after the fatal car accident that haunted their graduation night, a group of teenagers find themselves bound together by a dark secret and stalked by a brutal killer. As they try to piece together who’s after them, they reveal the dark side of their seemingly perfect town—and themselves. Everyone is hiding something, and uncovering the wrong secret could be deadly.

If it is anything like the movies, I can’t wait to spend my Halloween month watching IKWYDLS.


I am rooting for Cinderella’s evil stepsisters
June 30th, 2021 under Amazon Prime. [ Comments: none ]

Amazon Prime is bringing Cinderella to life again on September 3rd. This time she will be played by Camila Cabello with Billy Porter as her Fairy Godfather.

While it is just a tease, I am not sure if we needed to see her story again, even with the changes. At least not this musical version. Maybe it is just the way the audio was mixed, but Cabello’s voice came off as really whiny. If it wasn’t the mix, then I don’t know how we are going to be able to watch the film without earplugs.

What do you think? Will you be watching?


Coming 2 America is better than the original
March 5th, 2021 under Amazon Prime, Arsenio Hall, Eddie Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Before I watched Coming 2 America, which is out on Amazon Prime now, I watched Coming to America to compare the two. Also to remember what happened in the 1988 movie because I have not seen it in a long time. What was my biggest takeaway? Good things come to wait.

Had Eddie Murphy done the sequel immediately, it would not have been as good. This way, he was able to formulate a story that was fitting. Along with adding a lot of funny people to the sequel while also rehiring a lot of actors from the original.

Seriously, the best part is that so many people like John Amos, James Earl Jones, and Garcelle Beauvais came back for the second round. They are just a few of the many cast members who came back. I am beyond impressed with how many people did both movies. And I am not talking about all the dual roles that Murphy and Arsenio Hall played and played again. Saul has to be at least 100.

Now, let’s talk about the movie that takes place 30 years after the first one. Prince Akeem (Murphy) is still married to Lisa (Shari Headley), and they have three beautiful daughters (KiKi Layne, Bella Murphy, and Akiley Love).

King Jaffe Joffer (Jones) wants his Kingdom passed down to a grandson. When the King finds out that the Prince fathered a son in the Land of Queens, he sends Akeen to bring him back to Zamunda.

But wait, how did Akeem father a son? That will be explained and shown to us.

Back to the search for his son. Akeem and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) go back to Queens and meet up with some old friends who know his son. They tell him where he can find Lavelle Junson (Jermaine Fowler). How will it go when they meet him? Better than when they meet his mother (Leslie Jones) and uncle (Tracy Morgan).

Akeem tells them they have to go back to Zamunda with him so that Lavelle can prepare to be the future King. That is when the movie really starts to get funny!

It might seem like I am not telling you a lot, and I am not. I want you to enjoy the movie as I did. We waited almost 33 years for it, so we deserve to enjoy it without too many spoilers.

I promise you will love this movie just like you did the original. It is Eddie Murphy at his best. When he is at his best, our stomachs suffer. That is because we are laughing so hard with him.

We all need a good laugh these days, and Coming 2 America delivers tenfold. Make a date with Amazon Prime because you are going to want to watch this movie over and over again. Just like you watched Coming to America many, many times.
