Five from TubiTV
Tubi TV (Tube-E TV) has an impressive library for a new up-and-comer to the online streaming market. Tubi TV is a free streaming service that utilizes commercials for funding, much like YouTube and Crackle. I searched through their catalog and found many movies I liked so I thought I would list a few as an introduction to their service.
Henry Fonda stars as the sole holdout in a jury negotiating a seemingly open and shut case involving a young Puerto Rican boy accused of murdering his father. This intense little drama is packed with great actors and wonderful dialogue and never drags. A timely film during a time of racial tensions and escalating social violence. [rating=5]
This 4.5 hour miniseries from the SciFi channel is so good I watched it again for the fourth time. It stars Peter Krause as a police detective who stumbles upon a key which opens any door and is among 100 other “Objects” with mysterious powers. He is a veritable Alice down the rabbit hole when he gets sucked into a world with many warring parties trying to steal, buy and even murder to acquire these objects. [rating=4]
24 hours before the 2008 financial crisis one brilliant financial analyst predicts the coming storm. Can one company escape the oncoming tide of the housing market collapse with a short window of warning? The answer is yes if you don’t mind throwing all your customers and competition under the bus. [rating=4]
Rated R for language.
Two boys from very different backgrounds become best friends while making their own version of First Blood (Rambo). If you haven’t seen this little gem then stop now and watch it. You won’t be disappointed. If you have seen it then now might be a good time for a second watch. [rating=4]
Rated PG-13 for some violence and reckless behavior.
A great documentary about problems in the public education system in America. This insider’s look will enlighten, disgust, and anger all that watch. There are no easy fixes to the many problems highlighted here and no single bad guy. Watch and learn. [rating=3]
