When it comes to Ben Platt, I have always admired him and his work since seeing him as Benji in "Pitch Perfect". Then I was in complete awe at his voice during his starring role in the hit broadway show "Dear Evan Hansen". Finally, I fell in love with his artistry when he released his debut album "Sing to Me Instead" was released. Therefore, I was fairly excited when Netflix announced it would be releasing one night only recording of his Radio City performance, the final on his album tour.
So, I may have spent one day just watching ridiculous sci-fi movies where world threatening disaster that couldn’t possibly happen, happen. From this fun day long venture I was brought to the latest sci-fi movie added to Netflix, 2036: Origin Unknown.
During a time of crisis you would think that disaster movies would be the last thing anyone wants to watch right now. For some, this may be true, for me I find too much pleasure in watching entirely unrealistic scenarios threaten the safety of the world. It’s weirdly thrilling!
Another day of lock-down meant another day of watching random additions to Netflix's extensive catalogue. Thats what led me to the latest trend worth show 'Outer Banks'.
Much like many other people in the country at the moment I've been making my through the many movie options on Netflix (its been a great way to pass the time during lockdown, I'd recommend it). So, I've always been a big sci-fi fan and enjoy most sci-fi movies that come out, which is what brought me to the many sci-fi movies that Netflix has to offer and in particular this movie.
So I guess it was finally my time to watch this all to appropriate movie for the times that we're currently facing. There had been weeks of articles and tweets about this specific movie, around how close to reality it really was. I believe there were even scientists comparing the actions taken in the movie with those taken the past few months.
