May 25, 2020

Summer begins without movies in the movie theater. What a loss. At least you can see amazing movies in the comfort of your own home.

The first one I'm going to tell you about is  “the Wife”  starring the Oscar nominated  Close.  You can see it onStarz throughout June.  Close has never won an Oscar and this performance was going to finally earn her won. She was definitely cheated.  If you haven't seen this gem, this is your chance.

Another amazing movie on Starz this month is “Forrest Gump”. It's one of those recent classics you have to see a second time.

Brad Pitt finally won his Oscar this year for “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” and you can see it on Starz June 4th. An earlier classic of Brad Pitt's is “Meet Joe Black”.  Also, on Starz June 4th.

Julianne Moore fans can see “After the Wedding” on Starz June 8th. It was a hit at arthouse movie theaters so if you haven't had the chance, enjoy!

A film that never made it to theaters in 2018 is   “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan”.   It stars Natalie Portman  andSusan Sarandon.  How can you go wrong?  It's on Starz  throughout June.

Showtime brings back  “The Birdcage” and   “Boogie Nights”  throughout June.

Fans of   “A Clockwork Orange”   can also see that classic this month.

HBO premieres   “Ad Astra”   starring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones  June 6th. It's definitely worth seeing.

Helen Mirren fans will want to see “The Good Liar” on June 13th. It also starsIan McKellen.

On June 20th, HBO premieres  “Ford vs. Ferrari”  starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale. Both are fantastic in this film.

On June 27th is the premiere of  “Doctor Sleep”   starring Ewan McGregor. It’s the unofficial sequel to  “The Shining”

For those of you hungry for new programming at Netflix, you're in luck!  “The Politician”   season 2 premieres June 19th.

Fans of George Lopez will want to see his new standup special “We'll Do It For Half”.    It premieres June 30th.

Fans of the other funny Hispanic comedian, Gabriel Iglesias   will want to see   “Mr. Iglesias Part 2”   It premieres June 19th.

The final season of   “Fuller House”   premieres June 2nd.

The fourth and final season of   “13 Reasons Why”    premieres June 5th.

A new movie directed by Spike Lee  called   “Da 5 Bloods”   premieres June 12th. It stars   Delroy Lindo.

“Feel the Beat”   a new comedy starring   Sofia Carson   premieres June 19th. 

Broadway is suspended till September 6th, but you can find your favorite Broadway stars on television.

First is “Dear Evan Hansen”  dynamic duo Ben Platt and Laura Dreyfuss on“The Politician” which has its second season premiere June 19th. It also stars Oscar winnersGwyneth Paltrow andJessica Lange.   

Second is  “Ozark”   starring Laura Linney andJanet McTeer.  Linney recently starred on Broadway in a one woman show, “My Name is Lucy Barton” and McTeer won a Tony award for her performance in the 1997 revival of “A Doll's House”. “Ozark” also stars my childhood friend,Jason Bateman

Third is “Hollywood”.  It features Broadway favorites Patti LuPone, Darren CrissJeremy Pope andJoe Mantello.

Last is “Snowpiercer” on TNT. It stars Daveed Diggs who played Thomas Jefferson in the original cast of “Hamilton” for which he won a Tony!

This is the 35th anniversary of “The Goonies” and you can catch that gem this month on basic cable. There you have it! Join me in sending best wishes to the movie theaters that they open up very soon! Thank you for your emails. If you have any questions email me at
