Whether you're binge watching or Netflix and Chilling, hats off to the digital streaming behemoth that never ceases to entertain.
Last weekend, I opened Netflix looking for something to watch, when lo and behold, a new Jurassic Park series was splashed across my screen.
The Sleepover is a Netflix exclusive that recently came out. It's a lot more fun than you would have expected. Sure there are a lot of cheesiness and a ton of it is predictable but you have to consider what the target audience for this movie is. It's a family film that is sure to entertain kids and adults alike and I for one was entertained by this movie.
Project Power is a super power movie came out recently exclusively to Netflix. I can't really classify this movie as a superhero movie because all of the powers that each of the characters contain are dependent on a pill that they take. Still there's elements of a superhero movie in this movie but they did put a twist to it that is unique. The only problem is that the movie doesn't really have anything absolutely spectacular about it.
When most people think of food for the soul, what comes to mind for many might be something more kin to yoga, meditation, or the advice from self-help gurus. These are things I also enjoy from time to time, so I can understand the appeal. However, these days, what has helped feed my soul, is the new Netflix original series titled “Ratched”, a prequel series about Nurse Mildred Ratched, the antagonist from “One Flew Over The Cuckcoo’s Nest”, put together by Ryan Murphy, who is known for his work with “Niptuck” and “American Horror Story”. This is a series I had seen only one trailer for before watching the piolet, having heard nothing about the connection to the iconic nurse. When this realization came, I knew this was going to be something very interesting and exciting, even with watching only the first episode. Watching this first season, I look forward to many more seasons to follow. Being that this story takes place twenty years before the events of “One Flew Over The Cuckcoo’s Nest”, there’s no doubt there’s a lot of ground to cover before everything ties into that famous story line the world knows so well.
Introduction Good is good. Evil is evil. But can evil be good? Key themes Willard, fighting in the war, loses faith as he stumbles across Mellar Jones, a fellow soldier who was hung on a tree.
The Netflix show “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” is a Korean show that discusses serious topics of mental health through the romance, laughter, and tearful moments revolving around the protagonists, Moon Gang-tae (played by Kim Soo-hyun), his autistic older brother, Moon Sang-tae (played by Oh Jung-se) and the infamous children’s literature author, Ko Moon-Young (played by Seo Ye-ji). This series is difficult to be categorized into a single genre, because of its rich and diverse storytelling method. The romantic relationship between Moon and Ko, the heart wretching relationship between the Moon brothers, and the horrorific tragedy of the Ko family , leaving the audience experiencing a wide range of emotions through every episode.
An adaptation of a novel of the same name written by Donald Ray Pollock, ‘The Devil All the Time’ begins with Willard Russell (Bill Skarsgård) who returned from WWII. He falls in love with a beautiful young woman at a restaurant counter (Haley Bennett), scrounges together enough money for a house and has a son. The story begins with him teaching his 9-year-old son Arvin (Tom Holland) to be sincere in prayer.Life isn’t easy but it’s good.
Season 2 of Criminal UK has arrived on Netflix. The show which first came out last year and depicts the interrogation process in a metropolitan police station. (Last time we also saw Criminal France, Criminal Germany and Criminal Spain.) The series depicts what happens after you are arrested and the detectives come in for the interview. The main goal is not just to get the facts, but to get a confession. It takes me back to the time when Jane Tennison always got her man or woman to confess. In the US we have Law and Order with Detective Benson and Carussi bringing the criminals to confess.
Cyber-punk shows have never been done quite like this, and the justice that Altered Carbon delivers to the Sci-fi and cyber punk genres is nothing far from amazing. Through beautiful cinematography, strong performances, engaging fight sequences, and an emotionally compelling story, Altered Carbon has become a big steppingstone for future works of the like. Hold on tight, for every episode will have you pondering over the meaning of life, the unpredictability of the future, and will induce the occasional existential crisis. Not to worry though, for this is only science fiction (Or is it?).
Never be afraid to reach out for help. All Together Now is a 2020 Netflix film about a young girl fighting to stay persistent in the midst of many dilemmas. Given a once in the lifetime opportunity, Amber has a chance to showcase her talents to the world.
