Back in February I did a speculative article on a possible Netflix series based on the CHAOS! Comics character of Lady Death. I had so much fun with that one that I wanted to do another entry and make Netflix Potential another big project. The only problem was that I couldn't decide where to start; until I realized that I already had the next entry selected.
Greta Gerwig’s 2019 adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women is nothing short of excellent. Known for the success of her original film Lady Bird (2017), Gerwig wrote and directed the adaptation of the childhood classic with a star-studded cast including Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Emma Watson and Meryl Streep (absolute queen). With such an incredible cast and talented writer/director, I shouldn’t have been surprised at the brilliance of Little Women, and yet it still blew me away.
Note: I write all of my notes while I am watching the show/movie itself or right afterwards so my notes range from being super short to super long depending on if there were points that I thought were worthy to write about. Here are all of my honest and smart ass opinions on what I’ve seen so far. Some might contain spoilers, I ramble a lot, and I am in no way a writer. Idk man, enjoy!
It’s now that time where we can start speaking about Stranger Things 4 after that recent sneak peak on Valentine’s Day(I started writing this a day after, but left it in my drafts to come back to, oops). They have also just recently revealed they have done the table read, so filming should be starting soon (this didn't age well, thanks corona) . This means we will be getting a lot of teasers and behind the scenes from the cast being together when they aren’t filming!
I don't know about you, but I ran out of stuff to watch on Netflix a long time ago and now I am almost completely dependent on new releases. If you are struggling as much as I am then my best advice is re-watch favorites and lower expectations for new content. In the mean time, here are a few new releases that should help those stuck in quarantine. Stay safe out there and whenever possible, stay indoors.
BNA or Brand New Animal is an original twelve episode anime that was produced by Studio Trigger. The same studio behind Kill la Kill and the fantastic Promare. This was a show that I was excited to watch as a result of the studio that was behind its creation, however my excitement for the show was slightly dampened as a result of hearing that it would be released through Netflix worldwide. Which means that there is a good chance that one would have to wait at least half a year from the time the show is airing in order to actually see it if you are living outside of Japan, which is the case I found myself in.
