What We Are Watching!
As we all know, the recent pandemic has put many of us into isolation at home. Movie theaters have closed, Hollywood is holding on tightly to their summer blockbusters while releasing some movies to on-line streaming services. As reviewers of new releases on shiny discs (DVD, Blu-ray, or UHD Blu-ray), even that venue has dried to a mere trickle. So, what is a videophile to do? How are we to spend our leisure time without some content for our projectors and 4K UHDTVs? What if the theaters NEVER recover and open their doors again (a possibility…gasp!)
SECRETS of Home Theater and HiFi will be offering a new feature recommending movies that we think are worthy of your time (and let us face it, we have got time…). We will use this new platform to offer suggestions of things that we are watching that we feel you might enjoy as well. Not only will this include the occasional movie on a disc, but streaming alternatives too. You, the reader, are also welcomed to comment and suggest hidden treasures that you’d like to share with the community. I know that my wife and I like to watch almost anything from PBS or the BBC, as we find most American made shows in the evenings to be a bit too vacuous. Who has time to waste watching something that doesn’t intrigue or satisfy our desire to be entertained? Allow us to suggest some of our favorite movies and TV series so you don’t have to play hit-or-miss.
Join me and the SECRETS movie team as we share with all of you…what we are watching.
