Some Netflix Reviews
So major binge-watched over the 4-day, for me, weekend. Here are some reviews.
The Irishman - pretty good. However, it's very long and Robert De Niro is totally miscast trying to play a middle-aged man. He could have played anybody else in the film. Al Pacino is perfect as Hoffa and there's no rant like a Pacino rant.
The King - It's gotten better than average reviews, but I thought it was excellent (98 match with my algo). Loosely based on the Henriad plays of Shakespeare which were very loosely based on history.
The Crown - Almost done with Season III. Everbody's about 10 years older than in season one and two, so new cast but still great. Tobias Menzies as the older Prince Phillip is going to get some awards.
I finished season five of Dirilis Ertugrul (Resurrection Ertugrul) a soap opera loosely based on history about the father of the founder of the Ottoman Empire. So bad, it's good. Each season is about 100 shows. Season 6 become Dirilis Osman, the founder of the Ottoman Empire. My Turkish is really coming along.
By the way, watch The Spy if you haven't seen it. How Sacha Baron Cohen can go from playing Borat to Eli Cohen is mind bending when you think about it.
