What a month for Netflix. I’ve not had much time to watch a lot of shows but the ones I did watch were addictive and entertaining. There has also been a nice mix between shows, films and documentaries.
The only show I watched this month which I didn’t really like was Night flyers. Honestly, just a massive disappointment to me as I love Sci-Fi and it’s just rare for anyone to really nail this genre. I just found it boring with a plot that’s been done several times before but with different characters.
If you like any of the recommendations below, make sure you click on the links to add them straight to your Netflix list to watch later:
If you liked You then you might enjoy this one too. However, it did take me a few episodes to get into it as I just thought it just looked like Joe from You but 20 years later.
Dirty John is actually based on a TRUE STORY. What?! Yes, this actually happened to someone. Yes, it’s slightly dramatized for TV but what a story. I feel so sorry for this family. What a nut job.
Hello husband! Jake Gyllenhaal is back in a new film starring as a Art Critic and he’s so good at it too. A brilliantly played art snob. The film is creepy, spooky and weirdly beautiful. A hilarious take on the Art world with a supernatural twist.
One of the most hyped documentaries for a while. Based on the social media drama around the Fyer Festival which was so hyped up and marketed to be the biggest party ever…but never actually happened.
Well, it did but it wasn’t exactly what they said it was going to be. One of the biggest event fuck ups and scams ever! So many lessons weren’t learned from this event/documentary, including “Don’t promise things you can’t deliver” and “Social Media can make you and break you in an instant“.
The Umbrella Academy
WOW! OK, where do I start? Firstly, it took me a few episodes to get into this show and to understand this world but I was pretty much sold on Ellen Page and a talking monkey. What can I say, I’m easily pleased.
This show is based of the comic books about a superhero family. Each kid has superhero abilities but non of them are actually related. They were bought from their mothers and raised by an eccentric billionaire.
I love the characters individually and the relationships between each other. The story itself gets a lot more interesting as the episodes go by and secrets are revealed. It’s a great show to watch and my highest recommendation on the list.
MARCH ON NETFLIX
Next month, there are a few films and shows we should all be looking out for including The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind which is directed by and starring the amazing Chiwetel Ejiofor. This looks like an inspirational film and a real tear jerker ahead of us.
Ben Afleck has hung up his cape as Batman and his new release Triple Frontier is soon apun us. Honestly, Afleck was the worst Batman I’ve ever seen but he shines in films like Triple Frontier. Stick to what your good at Afleck.
YAAAAASSSSS! Queer Eye is back for Season 3. I’m so excited. I love this series and the fabulous 5. If you haven’t watched this fabulous makeover show yet then get on it asap.
