Piercing Ken Thoughts: Since I am not a subscriber, I will not be seeing this film and only hope that it somehow makes the rounds to some of the other services. I think something like that needs to be done so the audience can enjoy this as a larger group. I have Netflix and Disney+ and HBO Max and just cannot add another service to my monthly credit card bill. What do you readers think about this one? Will you be watching it if you are a subscriber?
