THE KOMINSKY METHOD (2021): The Things I Liked…

Created by Chuck Lorre of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang TheoryThe Kominsky Method is a California-set comedy/drama series starring Michael Douglas as an ageing actor who now spends his days coaching up-and-coming young actors. 

Also starring Alan Arkin, Lisa Edelstein and Sarah Baker, I watched the first season of The Kominsky Method almost two years ago and I remember thoroughly enjoying it. Season two turned out even better than the first, thanks to Lorre’s expert writing.

Douglas and Arkin are brilliant in their roles. The chemistry between the two actors and their excellent comic timing firmly places The Kominsky Method in the top five of my favourite things that Netflix has ever released. One might say it’s the side of me that’s a sucker for stories of beautiful friendships, but that’s only part of the reason I love the show. 

Watching The Kominsky Method, especially the first two seasons, is a moving experience. One that’s highly likely to result in satisfying laughter as it reminds you of what great writing can look like.

Up to this point, I haven’t said too much about season three, the last instalment of The Kominsky Method. And that’s because even though it features several memorable scenes and bits of dialogue, I can’t deny that at least two things make it less impressive to me than the first two seasons. The absence of Arkin means there’s no Douglas/Arkin chemistry to enjoy. The second disappointment for me is how rushed it felt. And I don’t just mean because it’s six episodes instead of the usual eight.

If you haven’t already watched the show, definitely give seasons one and two of The Kominsky Method a chance. Like me, you may enjoy it so much much that you’ll feel compelled to see how it all ends.

The Kominsky Method, one of my favourite things to come out of Netflix has one last season.

Starring Michael Douglas, Sarah Baker, Alan Arkin and Morgan Freeman; the comedy/drama follows an aging actor who had a brush with fame many years ago, and now he works as an acting coach.

I’m sad that this show is ending. However, better to end on a high, rather than to drive a good thing to the ground, right?

If you haven’t seen the first two seasons, I highly recommend. The acting is super, and the writing is good/funny. So, treat yourself to this little Netflix gem, why don’t ya?

Jane Seymour, Nancy Travis, Graham Rogers, Melissa Tang, Jenna Lyng Adams, Casey Thomas Brown, Emily Osment, Lisa Edelstein, Ramon Hilario Ashleigh LaThrop and Susan Sullivan, also star.

The Kominsky Method – Season 3 Release Dates: May 28th, 2021 (US)…

The Kominsky Method is a new Netflix comedy series starring Michael Douglas, Alan Arkin and Sarah Baker.

Created by  Chuck Lorre the story centres around an ageing actor, who once enjoyed a brush with fame but now makes his living as an acting coach…

I’m in for the beautiful bromance and of course the humour. I’m feeling very hopeful also because this trailer also reminds me of another Netflix series I enjoy, Grace & Frankie.

Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom and Toni Collette are just two of the stars of new Michael Apted directed action / thriller Unlocked. Set in London, England, Rapace plays a CIA interrogator lured into a ruse that could lead to a London based biological attack…

I find myself quite happy to see Orlando Bloom in this movie because it looks as though he’ll be playing a different character compared to the roles we’ve come to expect. Also Rapace as an action star… Promising is how the above video thumbnail looks. Fingers crossed the end result is good. It must be right? I mean, John Malkovich and  Michael Douglas are involved.

Unlocked Release Dates: May 5th 2017 (UK)…

ANT-MAN (2015): Yes. I Will Believe In Paul Rudd

Ant-Man is possibly the most uncool superhero name out there. I say this whilst being completely unfamiliar with pretty much all comic books.

Since it is Marvel, I’m hoping very much that I’m proven more wrong than ever before. Please, the powers that be…

See the teaser trailer for yourself…

What do you think? I’ll watch because I enjoy the work of Paul Rudd. Also, how young does Michael Douglas look in the preview?

Trailer 1…

Happy Ant-Man 🙂
