June Movie/TV Wrap-up

In TV news, I’ve got two disappointments, two loves, and one meh. I watched a lot of great movies this month, granted some of them were re-watches.

TV:

Space Force – ♥♥.5
Run – ♥♥♥.5
Trying – ♥♥♥♥.5
Love Life – ♥♥♥♥♥
Love, Victor – ♥♥♥

Space Force—I wanted you to be so much better. The two highlights were John Malkovich, and of course, my baby Ben Schwartz. My other disappointment—and it wasn’t really a disappointment—was Love, Victor, the companion series to Love, Simon. The supporting characters were really great, but the main character of Victor lacked so much personality. I did really enjoy how they tied the character of Simon Spier into this new show.  I loved Paul Feig and Anna Kendrick’s new show on HBO Max, Love Life. Such a great concept for an anthology show. I can’t wait to see the kind of character they follow for next person.

Movies:

A Secret Love – ♥♥♥♥♥
Honey Boy – ♥♥♥♥♥
Waves – ♥♥♥♥♥
Knives Out (re-watch) – ♥♥♥♥♥
Call Me By Your Name (re-watch) – ♥♥♥♥♥
Ballet 422 (re-watch) – ♥♥♥♥♥
The First Girl I Loved – ♥♥♥.5
Disclosure – ♥♥♥♥♥
Adam – ♥♥♥

I didn’t realize I had seen Ballet 422 when I started it, but it was pleasant to watch again. The two Netflix documentaries were both excellent. A Secret Love tells the story of the secret decades-long relationship between to women. Although a very minor part of the story, I loved the history of Terry’s time a part of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Disclosure looks at the history of the trans community in media. After missing it in theaters last year, I finally saw Waves and it was well worth the wait. Although it’s quite long, it follows two pretty separate stories of one family.
