… still a more believable accent than his Mario Bros. Impression that was Paola Gucci in “House of Gucci.” And Anne Hathaway grounds the madman in a realism that almost makes him likable. Makes his moves understandable until they cross over into unthinkably incoherent.

This is one of those “Hollywood can’t write a story this wild” situations where they try to pigeonhole the story to fit into a series narrative, and almost stick the landing. The soundtrack is a banger, nonetheless. Another AppleTV+ winner.

“Five Days at Memorial”


… because any longer, and there’d be no one left with the stomach to survive watching this heart-wrenching tale.

Based on the events at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans during and immediately following Hurricane Katrina, follow along on one of the move visceral deep dives into clinical ethics I can think of ever seeing put to film. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

Perfectly cast, each character brings their all, but also doesn’t overshadow anyone else. There’s a nice balance to everything as we all dive into the darkness together. Unfathomable decisions stemming from an unthinkable scenario playing out. Unprecedented times leading to unprecedented decisions and actions. The best and worst of humanity on full display.

“Ted Lasso”


Finally caved and got on the bandwagon. Well worth the all-day binge! Jason Sudeikis kills it as Ted, but has a stellar cast surrounding him that fire on all cylinders every episode. The quality of product here is other-worldly. Another home run for Apple TV+. A work of comedic art, blending wit with just the right amount of edginess and attitude. And inspiration… you’ll be ready to run through walls for coach when it’s all said and done. Whether you enjoy futbol/football/soccer or not, you’ll likely love this lovable lad Lasso. Bravo!



Very “Bridge of Spies” or “The Post” for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a solid film. But this is the movie that gets nominated for Oscars galore because Tom Hanks is in it. There have been better war movies put out, but this will certainly kill 2 hours of your time, and is an addition to the growing collection of content on AppleTV+. Just seemed pretty safe bet all the way down the checklist.

“The Banker”


Nick Fury and Hawkeye make a valiant return to the screen in this early home run for AppleTV+. Societal issues are front and center, and the 3 lead actors do a beautiful job of bringing them to light through this fascinating story of real estate, banking, and society as a whole. Really can’t go wrong with this cast, whose chemistry is undeniable. Truly moving and entertaining work of cinematic art, topped off by a happy ending in the sun. AppleTV+ has really hit the ground running in the quality department.
