Re: Movies

The Aretha Franklin gospel film Amazing Grace is sloppily shot, and a bit of a mess visually, but holy cow, it is great.

Until this season, I really liked The Good Place . The last couple of episodes, especially episode 11, were just awful. Nothing but exposition and explanation with the same flattened penis joke repeated as if to remind people that this is a comedy. I've seen every episode of the series, but I really...
