Senior Moment and TINA Tina Turner Documentary

By April 4, 2021May 3rd, 2021Backstage Pass

Hi Carl and everyone out there, tonight I’m going to talk about William Shatner’s new film, “Senior Moment” and the HBO documentary “Tina.”

“Senior Moment” takes place in sunny Palm Springs. We meet Shatner living his retirement days adoring his vintage sportscar as he drives around town with his friend actor Christopher Llyod from “Back to the Future.”

He’s caught one too many times racing and now must navigate life by taking public transportation. Meeting actress Jean Smart is his salvation.

The Bottomline: I’m in 3 stars out of 4. Here’s a delightful comedy with an all-star cast that says we’re never too old for love.

“Tina,” rated R, is streaming now on HBO, is the documentary film is based on Ike and Tina Turner’s life together. Be warned. The film contains detailed information regarding the abuse and torture Tina endured, at the hands of Ike, as she speaks and tells her first-hand account.

Clip: I had an abusive life. There’s no other way to tell the story. During the divorce, I got nothing, and I just wanted my name. My dream is to be a singer to pack places like the Stones.

The Bottom-line: I’m way in 4 stars out of 4. Tina Turner wants to put her sad, heart-breaking past behind her and savor the good memories of her rise to fame as a solo artist. This is an outstanding film for all Tina Turner fans.
